The word autism is used for the first time in 1908 to describe a subset of schizophrenic patients who were especially withdrawn and self-absorbed.
Then a Swiss psychiatrist, Eugen Bleuler, started using the term around 1911 to refer to one group of symptoms related to schizophrenia. In the 1940s, more researchers in the United States began to use “autism” to describe children with emotional or social problems.
American child psychiatrist Leo Kanner, M.D., publishes a paper in 1943 describing 11 children who were highly intelligent but displayed “a powerful desire for aloneness” and “an obsessive insistence on persistent sameness.” He later names their condition “early infantile autism.”
1944, a German scientist named Hans Asperger describes a “milder” form of autism now known as Asperger’s Syndrome. The cases he reported were all boys who were highly intelligent but had trouble with social interactions and specific obsessive interests.
Between 1944 and now, virtually everyone knows someone that is autistic. A recent government study suggests that 1 out of 45 children from ages 3 to 17 have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) pegs that number at 1 in 68. The question to ask is this?
How did the numbers go from:
1 in 10,000 in the 1970’s to
1 in 110 in 2007
1 in 150 in 2009
1 in 88 in 2012
1 in 68 in 2014
1 in 45 in 2015?
Is it better diagnostic tools or is it something more?
The first time I had any interaction with an autistic child was in the 1970’s. We were part of a play group that met at a park in Los Angeles. This boy was about 7 or 8 years old. He looked perfectly normal. Then, it wasn’t soon after than you knew something was off. He couldn’t play with the other children. He screamed incessantly. He had repetitive patterns. He hardly talked and had no eye-to-eye contact. He was autistic.
My mother predicted that autism was as a result of the vaccinations given to infants and children. I believe it’s that as well as all the chemicals put into our our food, drinks and environment. In addition, the prevalence of GMO’s and round-up make it hard to discount that those have no effect.
The assumption that MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine caused autism was supposedly debunked after a study published in The Lancet in 1998 suggested the connection. Who debunked it? The CDC.
In 2000, vaccine manufacturers remove thimerosal (a mercury-based preservative) from all routinely given childhood vaccines due to public fears about its role in autism. Apparently that connection was also debunked. Guess by who? The CDC.
EXCEPT a movie was made in 2016 “VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.”
Here’s where the story gets really juicy. There was a whistleblower. I love whistleblowers. This one is Dr. William Thompson. What did he do? In 2013 he was a Senior Scientist at the CDC. He led the agency’s study on the MMR vaccine and it’s link to autism. He did this in 2004. So, by 2013 things changed. He was ready to speak out.
From the VAXXED website:
- “The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed (to biologist Dr. Brian Hooker) that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.”
Have you ever met a family that had a perfectly healthy baby. They took that baby in for it’s shots and shortly after that baby became autistic. Did it make you wonder? Actor, Robert di Nero states his son, now 18, changed overnight after his MMR vaccine.
There comes a point, oftentimes may years later, when whistleblowers do come forward. I predict this will happen in our own town one day about the wastewater treatment plant, the loan and the sewer rates because I’m aware and the board of directors of the local taxpayers association are aware of whistleblowers who have just been bidding their time.
But, let’s get back to autism because there is good news. The question about whether or not there is recovery from autism and as to having a normal child one day now has answers. And the answer is, YES, there is recovery from autism and the quality of life can be improved.

When I write about corruption, it’s not because I’ve ever had contact with mafia types or criminal types. It’s because I’ve had experiences with government types that suck the financial life blood out of us and are successful in hiding their doings.
I applaud the people behind VAXXED for exposing this corruption involving the medical/chemical/industrial/governmental complex.
