I’m a Science Fiction writer. Take this article with a grain of salt. The truth is, I don’t know. I’m just a concerned parent.
What I’m about to show you isn’t Science Fiction at all. It’s what’s happening today, and it’s shocking. This is about autism. So, if you just want to skip this article, then please do. If you want to keep reading, then remember, take this with a grain of salt.
By the rate at which autism is growing, MIT Senior Research Scientist, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, claims that by 2025, every 1 in 2 children born in the United States of America will be autistic.
Read that again.
By 2025, 1 in every 2 children will be autistic. That’s half of all children. Half.
That wasn’t the case in 1980, where rates of autism in the United States was 1 in 10,000.
In 1990, the rate was 1 in 250.
In 2000, according to the CDC, the rate was 1 in 150.
In 2004, according to the CDC, 1 in 125.
In 2008, according to the CDC, 1 in 88.
In 2012, according to the CDC, 1 in 68.
In 2017, the year in which I’m writing this, the CDC reports that 1 in 50 American children are now diagnosed with autism.
If I was writing a Science Fiction post-apocalyptic thriller, this could be the disease or the condition that causes the massive change. Whatever your position on autism is, weather you think it’s because of vaccines or environmental toxins or because of genes creating a neurological disease, please understand one thing, this autism increase is alarming.
The rate at which autism is spiking is almost unheard of. It’s matching the rate of cancer and heart disease. Yes, the spike is that dramatic. If it’s because of our genes, then someone or something is manipulating our gene pool, rewiring our genes so quickly that our species will forever change the way it interacts, communicates, and ultimately lives — if we can live. A switch has occurred in our children’s DNA that prevents them from fully functioning in the world to the point that those “1 in 2 people born after 2025” will find driving nearly impossible, holding a job very difficult, and basic communication almost impossible. After 2025, half of the population will need to take care of a family member with autism.
Today, we are afraid of global warming, cancer, obesity. Tomorrow, global warming, cancer, obesity, and autism.
Many doctors agree that autism is manipulation or something gone wrong in a child’s genes.
What is a genetic disease? According to MedicineNet, “genetic diseases are the direct result of a mutation in one gene. However, one of the most difficult problems ahead is to find out how genes contribute to diseases that have a complex pattern of inheritance, such as in the cases of diabetes, asthma, cancer and mental illness. In all these cases, no one gene has the yes/no power to say whether a person has a disease or not. It is likely that more than one mutation is required before the disease is manifest, and a number of genes may each make a subtle contribution to a person’s susceptibility to a disease; genes may also affect how a person reacts to environmental factors.”
In the thousands and thousands of years that humanity has been on the planet, suddenly within the last forty years we see an increase of a genetic disease that has the ability to permanently alter the brain so intensely that it changes the very makeup of how we observe, communicate, and interact in the world. This manipulation is so prevalent, that it is now jumping into gene pools that have never had it before, multiplying at a rate so quickly, that stopping it seems impossible.
And, with very few exceptions, it only hits children. It didn’t hit children in the 1920’s, the 1930’s, 1940’s or the 1950’s like it did starting in the 1960’s, where cases began showing themselves in underwhelming numbers.
They are now in overwhelming numbers.
In 2025, at the rate genes are manipulating, autism will flood the United States. It will be “just another disease”. We’ll look at it the way we look at cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
This pisses me off. Why? Because it means my children’s children are very likely to have autism…if it’s truly because of the genes.
I’m not so sure it’s genes, though.
Unless, like a post-apocalyptic Science Fiction book, our DNA is back-firing on us, manipulating itself to the point of utterly changing our central nervous system, our brain’s neurology, and even our digestive system’s biological process.
In 2010, the EPA verified a study they conducted in 1990. In 1988/1989 autism suddenly increased by ten fold — in one year. The EPA labelled this the “ChangePoint Year”. As you read above, autism was 1 in 10,000 children in the United States in 1980. Sometime between 1988 and 1989, the human genome went through a major adjustment, and autism rates skyrocketed to 1 in 250 children.
It’s very similar to cancer spike pockets in rural areas, or towns, in the United States that sit right next to a toxic sludge factory or a nuclear plant, which, after years and years of debate, research, and litigation, the cancer spikes were finally found to be caused by toxic sludge being pumped into the rural town’s rivers or into the air by a factory whose fucked-up, piece of shit owner could care less who was affected by his factory’s pollution, because his pockets were thick with profit, and nothing should bother his bottom line.
*Side note: I had a friend — who never smoked — die at age 35 from lung cancer caused by one of these factories, so I’m a little over sensitive.*
Environmental illness/disease, defined by WebMD, “can occur when you are exposed to toxins or substances in the environment that make you sick. These health hazards may be found where you live, work, or play…exposure to some types of chemicals can cause an environmental illness. The more of the chemical you are exposed to, the more likely you are to get ill. Examples include:
- Chemicals in cigarettes are known to cause lung cancer.
- Exposure to asbestos, an insulating material found in some older buildings, can cause tumors, lung cancer, and other diseases.
- Wood-burning stoves and poorly vented gas ranges can produce smoke or gases that can cause breathing problems.
- Unsafe drinking water from a rural well polluted with pesticides or other poisons from a nearby industrial plant could cause allergies, cancer, or other problems.
- Certain chemicals in the workplace may cause sterility in men or fertilityproblems in women.
- Lead poisoning can cause health problems, most commonly in children. It can also cause high blood pressure, brain damage, and stomach and kidney problems in adults.”
A study conducted by the World Health Organization claims 24% of all disease is caused by environmental exposure.
So, why aren’t we looking at this possibility with autism?
Doctors are quick to point out that children are born with autism, saying that this genetic neurological disease doesn’t develop until the child is between 12 months and 18 months.
The onset of autism, in many cases, first begins with a fever. Usually, the fever lasts one or two weeks. As the fever subsides, the child loses coordination, his/her walking ability halts, speech stops, eye contact ceases, high pitched screaming begins, severe diarrhea starts, and in many cases, they begin banging their head.
There are many spectrum’s. Some are severe. Some not so severe. It all has one thing in common , though— a child’s neurology is impacted for life.
The majority of doctors have ruled out vaccines, mercury or aluminum poisoning, pesticides, genetically modified organisms, and other possible environmental toxins.
Some doctors have not.
Let’s look at vaccines.
In 1986, President Ronald Reagan passed a vaccine compensation bill “with mixed feelings’’ because he had “serious reservations”. It was a bill that the Justice Department strongly urged President Reagan to veto. The bill brought forth the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).
The NY Times reported that President Reagan said “there were ‘substantial deficiencies’ in the vaccine plan, under which injured people could obtain payments from the government without proving fault or wrongdoing by the vaccine manufacturer or anyone else.”
The vaccines companies, the pharmaceutical industries, and the vaccine manufacturers were no longer at fault or liable for any injury, paralysis, or death caused by a vaccine. If a court found guilt in a vaccine, causing an injury or death to a child, adult, or the elderly, the tax payers would foot the bill.
Remember, the bill was passed in 1986.
In 1988, the vaccine schedule increased. Why? Because the vaccine manufacturers were no longer liable for any injury their vaccine may cause. Since each vaccine brought in on average 10–20 billion dollars a year, vaccine companies created more and more vaccines, bringing them out at a hefty rate.
In 1988/89, the famous EPA ChangePoint Year occurred where a jump from 1 in many thousands of children diagnosed with autism to 1 in 250 children diagnosed with autism virtually appeared over night.
The CDC reported nothing. No connection.
Perhaps there wasn’t a connection at all.
According to a lead scientist at the CDC, Dr. William Thompson, there was. He claimed, “We scheduled a meeting to destroy vaccine-autism study documents.” This is according to a testimony in a senate hearing by Representative Bill Posey, R-Florida.
In another senate hearing, a head doctor at the CDC, Dr. Boyle, was asked if a study of vaccinated vs unvaccinated children was ever conducted to see if there is a difference with autism rates between the two. She said no study was ever conducted.
Why not? What is the harm?
Does this mean that vaccines cause autism. No. Could they have some type of effect on a child regarding autism? Perhaps, but we won’t know. We won’t know until they research it. Have they researched it? According to the CDC, they have not.
Okay, moving on.
Another potential environmental factor could be glysophates, which is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. It is an organophosphorus compound, specifically a phosphonate. It is used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. It was created by the now evil-labeled company, Monsanto.
Glysophates have been found in over 160 countries, the biggest toxic load in the United States. It has been sprayed on over 250 crops. It’s everywhere.
Can it be a reason for autism? I don’t know. It surely is for cancer. In a March, 2017 court ruling, California is one step closer to placing a cancer warning label on all of Monsanto’s Roundup products. It’s a carcinogen. It’s now one of many contributors to environmental disease. If it can manipulate genes to cause cancer, why can’t it manipulate genes to cause autism? Why hasn’t this been studied, either? And, if it has, where is the CDC in all of this? Will they be in the thick of things? Most likely not.
If I’m correct — and don’t take my word on it — autism is not a genetic disease. It’s an environmental disease. If you can spot a gene pool in nature that has mutated in such fashion and as quickly as autism, then is it genetic or environmental?
In almost all cases, it’s environmental, and human caused.
Look at cancer. We have found that a huge amount of cancer is caused not only by genes, but by environmental exposure as well. The more and more we are studying cancer, the more we are upping the percentage from genetically caused to environmentally caused.
In the past, childhood cancer was unheard of. Today, it isn’t.
In the past, autism was unheard of. Today, it isn’t.
I’m not doctor, so take everything that I have to say with a grain of salt.
All I want is to hard press the sciences and hard press the medical industry to figure this out. Let’s do some in depth research and get the pharmaceutical companies OUT of that research. We owe it to our children, and to our children’s children. We owe it to all of those who have autism and to all of their brave parents who love them, take care of them, and love them some more.
We once lived in a world free of environmental toxins, in a world free of environmental disease. I truly think we get back to that environment again, and soon.
Again, take all of what I have to say with a grain of salt. I’m a damn Science Fiction writer, not a doctor. I’m also just a concerned parent, looking for the best possible future for our children.
