Autism is THE MOST pressing issue for today’s parents. It is predicted by Dr. Stephanie Seneff that by 2025 half of all babies born will be autistic. NOW is the time to learn why. Those prepared are usually spared!
This is a revision and update of chapter 10 of Create a Better Brain through Neuroplasticity by Debi Pearl. (Please refer to the book for footnote links to information sources.)
In a 1990 study tracking 10,000 children, it was found that three out of 10,000 manifested clear symptoms of autism. Six years later in 1996, the CDC began tracking and found that 34 out of 10,000 children showed clear symptoms of autism. Eight years after that, in 2004 something provoked an alarming increase in the rate of autism. One out of every 150 eight-year-old children was autistic. Just ten years later, in 2014 one child in 59 tested positive for autism. Will half of US kids have autism by 2025? This prediction was made by Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Some may scoff at it, but the latest CDC statistics do indicate an alarming rise in prevalence. Most parents with autistic children say raising an autistic child is almost like being in prison. Clearly, something new has arisen that is causing this horrific problem, and somehow it must be stopped.
What has changed since the 1990s that is causing such statistically high numbers of brain damaged babies? What can we do to stop it? Discovering the answers is like putting a complicated, solid white puzzle together. There are many rabbit holes, possible roots, and likely complicit evils. As I have plowed through a mountain of information it became clear to me that it is a manmade tragedy. I don’t know where or how.
What exactly is autism? What does it do to the brain? What can we do to stop the growing numbers? And once a child is diagnosed with autism, what can be done to help the child overcome some of the difficulties associated with it?
The research is a new science with many different voices vying to be heard, but just as many voices being intentionally silenced in an effort to hide the guilty. The child’s weakened immune system predisposes the child to autism. Other issues such as premature birth, low birth weight, genetics, drugs, etc. all predispose a child to autism. These “predisposition issues” are just the outcome of the still-unknown root cause.
Autism is considered to be a spectrum: a word describing a wide range of symptoms of varying severity with many possible causes. It appears that autistic children do not prune their synapses properly—a normal process essential to a healthy brain. When pruning fails, the child’s brain is electrically overcharged, resulting in a great deal of stress. To function normally, neurons in the child’s brain need the unused synapses to be pruned away.
In a healthy brain, the neurons actually eat the unused synapses. For some reason, this process doesn’t happen in some children. What interferes with the pruning? Poor gut health in the mother and the child has proven to interfere in the pruning process. But that is not new, so it cannot be the sole cause. Environmental toxins, vaccinations, genetics, and even emotional trauma have been shown to be tied to stalling or completely stopping the brain’s pruning. But again, some of those things have always been part of the human experience. Why are we seeing problems only now, in the past 25 years? Many scientists believe the issues that disturb pruning are just the tipping point of a delicate state with a much more crippling cause.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
I would never advise anyone to have their children vaccinated. It took a lot to wake me up to this decision. When my first two children were babies, I kept their vaccination cards carefully up to date. Every few months, like a dumb lamb to the slaughter, I stood in line waiting for the free government hand-out in the form of vaccinations. I shiver with anxiety when I reflect on that day 42 years ago when my neighbor and I drove to town together to have our 3-month-old baby boys receive their shots. Within hours after the shot, my son was very sick, and during the night his fever spiked. I bathed him in wet washcloths, gave him the meds the clinic advised us to give in the event there was a fever, and I prayed. Still his fever raged.
Sometime during the night, I was sitting in the bed trying to comfort my sick baby when I felt death in the room. I knew the death angel had come for my son. I know this is weird, and if I heard you say it, I would roll my eyes. But it was my experience. I woke up my husband and said, “Pray! The angel of death is in the room, and he has come for our baby.” He was too tired to even wonder what was wrong with me. I slapped him on his bare back as hard as I could and shouted, “You wake up and YOU pray for our son . . . NOW!” He clearly didn’t believe me, but he started to pray. Instantly, I could feel death leaving the room. Within minutes, my son’s fever broke and he slept peacefully in my arms as I sat in tense fear, leaning against the headboard. I was still sitting there at daybreak when I saw the ambulance’s flashing lights next door. The angel of death had come, and he took my neighbors baby home where he is even at this moment, looking into the face of the heavenly Father (Matthew 18:10). It could have been my baby as well. Over the next couple of days we heard there were two other babies under stress from that same round of shots.
Now, you would think this would have scared me into NEVER considering another vaccination, but I was schooled to believe that the government and doctors know best. My daughter was three years old before I took her in for her shots. Just a few hours after her vaccinations, she broke out all over her body in a large, four-leaf-clover rash. I immediately took her back to the clinic and was shocked at the nervous and speedy reaction of the nurses. One nurse pulled me out of the room to speak to me privately. “Have any of your other children ever had a bad reaction?” I told her about my son. I will never forget the expression on her face when she whispered, “Don’t come back here, ever. Don’t let anyone give any of your children another vaccination.” When she walked out of the room, I was suddenly a wiser mother
All of this happened over 35 years ago. Vaccinations were simple back then and a whole lot safer. Aluminum, a critical component of most vaccines, is added to act as an adjuvant. This means the body identifies the aluminum as an attack and goes into an immunological response, thus stimulating the antigen in the vaccine. In the 1980s when my children received their vaccines, they would have received 1,250 micrograms of aluminum by their 18th month. Today, that number is 4,925 micrograms.
Canadian scientists Chris Shaw, PhD, and Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, addressed this subject in a critical study they published in 2011 in Current Medicinal Chemistry titled “Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants: Are They Safe?” They wrote:
Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. There is also a concerning scarcity of data on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of these compounds. In spite of this, the notion that aluminum in vaccines is safe appears to be widely accepted. Experimental research, however, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In particular, aluminum in adjuvant form carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation, and associated neurological complications and may, thus, have profound and widespread adverse health consequences.
Here is a transcript (edited for clarity) from a YouTube video of the speech given by Robert Kennedy, Jr., director of Children’s Health Defense, at the New York Rally & Lobbying Day for Vaccine Injury, on May 14, 2019:
I have six kids. I had eleven brothers and sisters. I had over fifty cousins. I didn’t know a single person with a peanut allergy. Why do my kids all have food allergies? Is it because they were born after 1989? If you were born prior to 1989, your chance of having a chronic disease, according to HHS, is 12.8%. If you were born after 1989, your chance of having a chronic disease is 54%. What are they? They’re the neurodevelopmental diseases: ADD, ADHD, speech delay, language delay, tics, Tourette’s syndrome, ASD/autism. The autoimmune diseases: Guillain-Barre, multiple sclerosis, juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis. The anaphylactic diseases: food allergies, rhinitis, asthma, eczema. All of these exploded in 1989. Congress ordered the EPA to do a study to find out what year the disease epidemic started, and the EPA did that study. They said it started in 1989.
There are lots of culprits, many new things. We have cell phones, PFOA, ultrasound, glyphosate, etc. Our kids are swimming around in a toxic soup. We’re not saying all of those illnesses came from vaccines. But there is no intervention that is so exquisitely and precisely timed as what happened in 1989, when the vaccine schedule was changed. This raised the levels of aluminum and mercury—tripling and quadrupling them—and went from the three vaccines I had as a child, to the 72 my kids received. Next year, it will be raised again to 75.
AMISH ARE BLESSED NO MORE
For years, many people have thought Amish children do not have autism because they do not vaccinate. For the last 35 years, I have lived in what the Amish/Mennonite folks refer to as a “Plain people community.” I have heard the latest interesting family tidbits coming from their many colonies, including those in Mexico, Belize, South America, Canada, and further afield. My neighbors use horse and buggies and outhouses (bathrooms outside with a hole in the ground) and, for the most part, grow their fruits and vegetables organically (at least what they use for their own family). In recent years, they have started eating more processed foods, but as a rule, what their children eat is far better than the average American school child.
These Plain people are more educated and smarter than the regular citizen. They are more skilled in the latest and most advanced information concerning herbs, natural healing, GMOs, companion planting, and a thousand other practical subjects. As a group, they have made a very educated decision not to vaccinate, and up until the last ten years or so, I never heard of a single case of autism among their hundreds of thousands of children. But in recent years, still eating organic foods for the most part, and adhering to their stand against vaccinations, that has changed. The number of cases of children being diagnosed with autism is still lower than the general population, but autism is becoming more common in their ranks.
CELL PHONE LINK
New research has determined that “fathers pass on the cause of 80% of autism cases.” Many scientists in this field think that cell phone radiation could be what is affecting men’s sperm. Cell phones were introduced to the general public around 1995 and thus, could be responsible for the spike in autism cases since that time, as well as the epidemic levels seen today.
Many pediatric neuroscientists are beginning to believe that the failure of the brain to prune is due to damage done to the man’s sperm..
The Environmental Health Trust published the “Top 10 Facts about Cell Phones and Wi-Fi.” Here are a few highlights:
Every wireless device is actually a two-way microwave radio that sends and receives a type of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation called radio frequency radiation (RF–EMF). This machine-made radiation is millions of times higher than the natural electromagnetic fields (EMFs) our grandparents were exposed to.
Numerous peer-reviewed and published research studies show that these man-made, pulsed electromagnetic frequencies cause adverse biological effects and are very different than the natural electromagnetic fields that have always existed in the environment. Research on humans has found an association between cell phone use and brain cancer, headaches, and damage to the brain and immune system. Yale studies found that cellular radiation exposure during pregnancy led to increased hyperactivity and memory problems in the offspring.
Multiple research studies report cell phone radiation penetrates more deeply into children’s brains in comparison to adults’ (Fernandez-Rodriguez 2015, Fernández 2015, Mohammed 2017).
A 2018 study found that teens who held cell phones up to their head had decreased memory performance on researchers’ tests.
A WORD TO THE WISE
Neuroscientists are advising men to keep their cell phones out of their pants pockets. Keep them away from your young children. Better to be safe than sorry. Turn your Wi-Fi off at night when you are not using it. Being overly cautious could save you a lot of grief.
Many countries have banned the use of cell phones in or around schools due to overwhelming evidence of possible harm. The mayor of Haifa, Israel, Yona Yahav, called for the removal of Wi-Fi from all schools. Yahav said, “When there is a doubt, when it comes to our children, there is no doubt.”
THE MIRROR NEURONS LINK
Neurologist V.S. Ramachandran says evidence suggests mirror neurons being damaged are in some way responsible for autism. When you smile at a baby who is four or five months old, he should automatically smile back because healthy mirror neurons automatically fire in reflection of a smile.
Mirror neurons are what allow us to “read” people. Females are usually much better at deciphering what a person is feeling. As you might expect, the average female has more mirror neurons than the average male.
Dr. Ramachandran says that if a child doesn’t return a smile, it could be a sign the child will become autistic when he is two or three years of age. When you consider that boys have fewer mirror neurons than girls, it is not a surprise that boys have a much higher rate of autism than girls (4.2 boys to every girl).
Autistic children don’t appear to be capable of empathy. Empathy is made possible by active mirror neurons, which are also needed for a child to be capable of pretend play. An autistic child’s greatest handicap is the lack of empathy.
Many brain issues in children appear to have their source in the mother’s gut. Scientists do know that autism, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia have things in common, and the gut and the brain have a very close connection. The lack of proper digestive enzymes and microbes can cause inflammation in the gut, resulting in serious emotional disorders.
Gut microbes produce most of the chemicals and hormones that are necessary for emotional balance. It is the disorders that come in shades. Some children’s brains seem to fluctuate with odd peculiarities. One day the child seems relatively normal, and the next day he is raving and wild. Is it bad food, red dye, black mold, a knock on the head, or maybe stress that causes these terrible swings in behavior? Obviously, something is going on in his brain that is driving him bonkers. Autism Parenting Magazine statistics show that the vast majority of children with autism have serious digestive issues. Many scientists refer to the gut as the second brain as its function is so critical in brain health. The question is how can we fix it? The greater question is what destroyed the gut flora to begin with?
WHAT DO AIDS, AUTISM, AND VACCINATION HAVE IN COMMON?
In the book The River: A Journey to the Source of HIV and AIDS by Edward Hooper, the author gives details on how vaccinations were made in the years shortly before AIDS. He proves they were from animal tissue, and he shows how easily that tissue could carry viruses and diseases that could be devastating to humans. He demonstrates how scientists, then and now, get caught up in trying to make a name for themselves and lose sight of caution and honesty. Since Big Pharma feeds entirely on money, a rush is made to put the big moneymaker on the market. His argument concerning the origin of AIDS is very convincing based on much conclusive research, data, and personal testimony from those working on the project at the time. He shows that AIDS is a result of a Polio vaccination that was made in Africa using chimpanzees’ kidneys. Of the 400 chimps used, perhaps only one or two carried the virus, but since they carry natural immunity, they did not appear sick. Those vaccinations were given to over a million people in one area, and that is where AIDS emerged shortly thereafter.
The book is a read worth your time, but if you don’t have time or inclination to plow through it, then the YouTube video “The Origins of AIDS (2004) | Full Documentary” with Cecil Fox, Simon Wain-Hobson, and Joseph Vandepitte documents Ed Hooper’s book and shows just how easily vaccines can cause—and have caused—major outbreaks of ongoing diseases in large numbers of people. Many doctors state, “God didn’t make AIDS. Man made AIDS. One must ask, ‘What else has man made?’”
Do your research. It is all there. There are trails of horror as wide as the trails of good surrounding vaccinations. The back trail to autism seems to be very carefully hidden. After researching I have come to the conclusion that autism is like AIDS in that its roots were based on the same evil in human nature. Both diseases could have started with a mistake in a vaccination that no one in the know was willing to stop, but once it was released it gained feet of its own. I think Edward Hooper might have found the root. If it were not AIDS, it would have been a different virus, with a different animal causing it. It would have been a completely different process than what is used today to create vaccinations. The details might have been different, but Hooper discovered a powerful, driving force to create and then to hide when mistakes are made. What he revealed more than anything was the human element of greed, lies, and desire for fame and power, regardless of how many lives were hurt. As I studied I reflected on the last few years and realized that now the entire world has become victims of an experiment with an unknown vaccine. Who knows what man has made?
