New Published Study Verifies Andrew Wakefield’s Research on Autism – Again (MMR Vaccine Causes Autism)

autism-detection-voice[1]Controversial Doctor and Autism Media Channel Director proven right – MMR Vaccine Causes Autism & Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Two landmark events – a government concession in the US Vaccine Court, and a groundbreaking scientific paper – confirm that physician, scientist, and Autism Media Channel [AMC] Director, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and the parents were right all along.

In a recently published December 13, 2012 vaccine court ruling, hundreds of thousands of dollars were awarded to Ryan Mojabi, [i] whose parents described how “MMR vaccinations,” caused a “severe and debilitating injury to his brain, diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).”

Later the same month, the government suffered a second major defeat when young Emily Moller from Houston won compensation following vaccine-related brain injury that, once again, involved MMR and resulted in autism. The cases follow similar successful petitions in the Italian and US courts (including Hannah Poling [ii], Bailey Banks [iii], Misty Hyatt [iv], Kienan Freeman [v], Valentino Bocca [vi], and Julia Grimes [vii]) in which the governments conceded or the court ruled that vaccines had caused brain injury. In turn, this injury led to an ASD diagnosis. MMR vaccine was the common denominator in these cases.

And today, scientists and physicians from Wake Forest University, New York, and Venezuela, reported findings that not only confirm the presence of intestinal disease in children with autism and intestinal symptoms, but also indicate that this disease may be novel. [viii] Using sophisticated laboratory methods Dr. Steve Walker and his colleagues endorsed Wakefield’s original findings by showing molecular changes in the children’s intestinal tissues that were highly distinctive and clearly abnormal.

From 1998 Dr. Wakefield discovered and reported intestinal disease in children with autism. [ix] Based upon the medical histories of the children he linked their disease and their autistic regression to the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR vaccine). He has since been subjected to relentless personal and professional attacks in the media, and from governments, doctors and the pharmaceutical industry. In the wake of demonstrably false and highly damaging allegations of scientific fraud by British journalist Brian Deer and the British Medical Journal, Dr. Wakefield is pursuing defamation proceedings against them in Texas. [x]

While repeated studies from around the world confirmed Wakefield’s bowel disease in autistic children [xi] and his position that safety studies of the MMR are inadequate, [xii] Dr. Wakefield ’s career has been destroyed by false allegations.  Despite this he continues to work tirelessly to help solve the autism catastrophe.

The incidence of autism has rocketed to a risk of around 1 in 25 for children born today. Mean while governments, absent any explanation and fearing loss of public trust, continue to deny the vaccine autism connection despite the concessions in vaccine court.

Speaking from his home in Austin, Texas, Dr. Wakefield said,

There can be very little doubt that vaccines can and do cause autism. In these children, the evidence for a n adverse reaction involving brain injury following the MMR that progresses to an autism diagnosis is compelling. It’s now a question of the body count. The parents’ story was right all along. Governments must stop playing with words while children continue to be damaged . My hope is that recognition of the intestinal disease in these children will lead to the relief of their suffering. This is long , long overdue .”

Dr. Andrew Wakefield is a best selling author, [xi] founder of the autism research non profit Strategic Autism Initiative (SAI), and Director of the Autism Media Channel.

Yeah, I still call bullshit. I'm forcing my children to do manual labor at this moment so I'll be back to elaborate. I just had to throw my voice in the mix.

 Oh wow.  I need some time to digest this.  We just got home from vacation and I am beat.

My son began experiencing symptoms after being forced to get his one year shots twice, within a few months of each other.  His devolopmental pediatrician suspected he had mercury poisoning..which has some of the same symptoms.

I used to have a saved response to all vaccine posts saved in notepad lol.  Autism.Genetic.  People with neuro issues don't do well with toxins, even RED koolaid can cause issues, let alone all the crap in vaccines.  I do believe vaccines *can* cause comorbid symptoms in those who are already autistic.. and since shots are given before age 2, sadly my theory can't be proven. Vaccines made my daughter sick, she has a medical ex... and it wasn't the mmr.  She got sick before that.  If you have a family hx of autoimmune crap, neuro disorders etc.. I think you are at highter risk for reactions, which are very real, and yes, even fatal.

autism isn't a severe brain injury. A couple court findings in favor of the plaintiff does not equal "a scientific study" so wtf. And we've always known autistic kids have gastrointestinal issues, but even that section of your post says nothing about the MMR shot. Finally, the MMR shot is scheduled for kids at their 12month or 18 month checkup, all autistic kids start to show signs before then.

Just a couple of points with the post and some replies, sometimes autism is directly related/triggered by a severe brain injury such as a high fever or lack of oxygen. Sometimes kids do not show the autism until three years or more and there is normally a triggering event. The MMR is directly related to another latent nerve condition and it has a warning for such.  Given that they have findings that environmental toxins are suspected in the onset of autism this could very well onset some of it. People will still have to way benefit vs risk, just as we have to with any medicine, the use of antibiotics, and the food we allow our kids to eat. Vaccines can be harmful to people but for others they could be helpful. As mothers, our previous viruses could be detrimental or very helpful to our children. Life has risks.

I am coming to understand why certain positions have been taken on vaccine and other damages. I think we need to understand that it is our choice to take these meds. We know there are risks but we do not know our chance of having those risks happen. I think if in the case such as the heparin (I may have spelled that wrong so please excuse it) contamination occurs the makers should be responsible. However, when it comes to side affects and allergic reactions we cannot hold the vaccine makers responsible because they cannot foresee this reaction anymore than we as parents can. I used to hate when the FDA wanted to control vitamins. Lately though I have come to understand the need after watching people take 6g of Niacin (No that is not a typo). I still do not think they should have control but well I do understand it. We as people do not hold others responsible for acts of nature, and adverse reactions that do not happen across the board are technically acts of nature. Then again that would not even be an issue if the medical needs of such damage were not so costly. So, I can also understand why people may want to hold them responsible. 

Yet, with this information and the other warning we as parents have to make our best judgment on what we should and should not give our children. It goes with this and medicine and everything else. But, those choices should be each persons and there should not be such pressure until they find a way to ensure where or not a reaction will or will not occur. No offense to science, but it is just not advance enough to do this and until it is, we have to do the best we can.

For one, this article is extremely biased.

Two, did you read the study? It has nothing to do with the MMR or any other vaccine. All it does is demonstrate a variant of IBD that's associated specifically with autism. And from the study itself: "These findings may be considered preliminary to the extent that they require further confirmation in a validation cohort."

Nope.  Wakefield is still a bullshitting fraud.

If you don't think it's severe then you haven't lived with anyone with Autism. As far as the signs you are misinformed. The signs usually BEGIN around the 2nd birthday. The court cases in point were the federal vaccine court . Meaning the federal government in these cases admits that these cases of Autism were in fact directly caused by the MMR vaccine. That's fact ! So why is it so hard for some to believe that their are others?


Quoting RoryPond:
