Boy Recovers From Autism By Removing Dairy & Gluten. Strong Evidence Links Vaccines to Autism


advertisement - learn more

Global autism rates are on the rise and many are beginning to ask questions about how they can best treat or remedy symptoms to increase quality of life overall. In one particular case, a young boy by the name of Ethan Fox began showing strong signs of Autism recovery when his diet was changed to no longer include gluten and dairy. The parents of Ethan acted on the advice of Dr. Kenneth Bock who is an autism specialist and author of ‘Healing The New Childhood Epidemics. Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies.’ It is believed that changing an autistic child’s diet to no longer include gluten and dairy can assist 60% of children with autism.

The video below covers the story in detail so be sure to check it out for more information on this specific case.

There is much concern that the rise in autism is directly linked to the rise in vaccines since the early 1990’s. While this theory has been debunked on several occasions by mainstream health, many independent studies are confirming the link, suggesting that mainstream health has a vested benefit in the continuation of their practices. Many researchers in the field strongly believe the current vaccine schedule is unsafe and health professionals are turning a blind eye to the real and factual results. Many arguments against the mainstream approach to this research is that they have not properly studied or tested the link between autism and vaccines and therefore are irresponsibly drawing conclusions.

Autism in the U.S. alone has increased by over 2700 percent since 1991. It was at that point that vaccines for children doubled, and even today we still see an increase in the number of immunizations. Before 1991, 1 in 2500 children were diagnosed with autism whereas now 1 in 91 children are diagnosed.[3] Although research by Epidemiologist Tom Verstraeten and Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado, both determined that thimerosal was responsible for the sudden rise in cases of autism, their findings were quickly dismissed by the CDC. [4]

The graph illustrates the link between the MMR vaccine and the rise in autism.

Further research on the link between a gluten free diet having positive results for autistic children is furthered by the a study focused solely on dietary therapy for children with autism. I have included a link to the study in the sources, below is an excerpt from the study’s abstract.[5]

‘We report the history of a child with autism and epilepsy who, after limited response to other interventions following her regression into autism, was placed on a gluten-free, casein-free diet, after which she showed marked improvement in autistic and medical symptoms. Subsequently, following pubertal onset of seizures and after failing to achieve full seizure control pharmacologically she was advanced to a ketogenic diet that was customized to continue the gluten-free, casein-free regimen.'[5]

      That Docs a Quack…Vaccinating your child doesn’t give or make your child have a higher chance of Autism. and back in 78 they did not call it autism they called it by prob by many different names now-a-days they look at points and call it autism that is why there are more cases. and Vaccination where put in so we don’t have an epidemic of diseases and everyone dies so unless you people who don’t believe in the vaccinations wants that to start again …. feel free but you be the first to die and it selfish of you to put your child though that as well

        Everyone on the “Oh no, we need vaccines” bandwagon, have you EVER looked at the crap they put in vaccines? Seriously toxic poison. I don’t know how someone capable of brain function thinks injecting yourself with this stuff is a good idea that will have no adverse side effects. .

        Reply
        • Everyone on the “Oh no, vaccines are evil” bandwagon, have you ever bothered to look at what the vaccines are protecting us from? The only reason some parents can afford to not vaccinate their children is because of us parents that do choose to vaccinate our children. If it weren’t for those vaccines, our children would still be dying of things like Typhoid Fever.

      I believe autism/aspergers is an evolution of the human race not a disease or syndrome. As we move further and further into using artificial means of communicating with others ( in other words less contact and more texting, phones, e-mailing, facebooking etc) the more our species needs to adjust. We used to be a race that needed to work together as a collective to survive. Now we do most things without ever making real contact with others eg. playing games, on-line shopping, working from home and even in some cases receiving medical care and this is encouraged by everything becoming automated. Just try talking with a real person at a government office the voicemail that answers the phone always directs you to go on-line and makes talking with a real person very difficult. The only way we can continue to survive is by evolving and in case nobody noticed people with Autism generally rely on computers to do a lot of their socializing etc. My daughter uses the computer for most of her social needs with the world as she has troubles with understanding the social cues of her peers so they shun her.

      It has to be considered that there were changes in diagnostic processes as well – definitions, classifications etc. An expert once said to me that autism diagnosis “label” has become more popular and acceptable in 90ies in America. Before that classification “labels” like mentally reatarded etc. were more common. Statistics of how many cases of autism per year is not enough for easy conclusions like that. Maybe just in that time there were major changes in psychological classification that could better explain such trend…

          The incidence of autism has increased because: 1) Diagnosis of autism is more defined, 2) People are more aware about it, 3) There are better methods for diagnosing it.

          You sensationalize the article title by posting ‘ Strong Evidence Links Vaccines to Autism’ yet you provide no references to the strong evidence.

          Vaccinations leading to autism was debunked many, many years ago. Not vaccinating children is dangerous. The outbreak of measles in the UK was a direct result from the 90’s anti-vaccination movement. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-22641698.

          It’s 15 year later and the NHS is still feeling the strain of the stupidity of parents in the 90’s. Because journalists posted articles like this, with no scientific merit.

          Vaccinations do have their side effects, mind you, but the risk vs the reward is well worth it. We’ve eradicated diseases like small pox which killed 1 in 10 children in France during the 18th century because of vaccinations.

          If I’m going to play Russian Roulette with my children, its going to have the most number of chambers possible.

            It truly isn’t. There is no danger in educating people about the potential danger of vaccines. There does exist a danger, we keep ignoring this fact and that is the problem. Academic publications do exist about vaccines being dangerous, the only issue is because the CDC, FAD and WHO weren’t involved, no one want to think they are credible. Which is fine, it’s understandable, there is more money in vaccines than their is in proving not all of them are necessary.

        First and foremost autism is a disability. It is sometimes horrific, often traumatic for those who suffer from it. While is it good thing to keep a positive attitude, let’s us be clear that autism is terrible no matter where one is on the spectrum.

But really this is off topic and detracting from the issue at hand.Vaccines have in the past and some I think still do contain mercury which is proven to cause neurological damage not to mention delivery method and other ingredients that have been proven harmful there has been documented deaths and extremely damaging permanent side effects.The only interest pharmaceutical companys have in this agenda is money certainly not your wellbeing.

          The kid in this article may have autism like symptoms but he is not autistic. It’s a disability. There is not a cure so you don’t get cured by changing your diet. Your symptoms may lessen but there is not a cure for autism. Stories like this make me so angry because other parents are trying the same thing and their kid is still autistic. It is gut wrenching. And Autism IS a horrible disease. So is cancer, so it diabetes, so is MS. How can anyone on this earth try to convince others a disability or disease is a blessing. My son will NEVER EVER have a normal life because of autism. He will never talk. He will never drive or have a girlfriend or children, own a home, etc. That is not a blessing. Geez oh peets!!!

            I hear you Melanie. I have two children with autism, one more severe than the other.
            One was immunized and one wasn’t. My daughter who was immunized is more severe than my son who was not. I feel gutted as a parent too. I feel your angst, and I know that you are doing the best you can for your child, just as I am for mine. No matter how positive one tries to be, this is an epidemic of grand proportions and it is hurting many families and it is getting worse. There are at least 2 children in every class at my sons school who are on the spectrum!! I do not remember ever hearing or reading about autism 20 years ago. It has got to the point where I am seeing these children everywhere!! My friends, family, neighbours and so on, all know someone with autism! I agree that there are environmental, immunisation, and dietary factors that have caused this. I don’t think that it curable just yet but live in hope. I have tried everything over the last 19 years!! My blessed children are in the best possible place but they are suffering no matter how much I try to comfort them, teach them and love them. My middle son who is not afflicted by this epidemic, is a tower of support to his siblings but also feels their pain. Something has to be done!

            Melanie, you make a great point and add a lot of common sense to this post laden with foolishness. It’s incredibly important that more people recognize autism as something other an a curable disease. I hope that you will one day be able to appreciate some of the benefits and joys of motherhood through some of the accomplishments your child WILL make throughout his life. Even though his life doesn’t look like the normal you are used to or the normal you desired for him, I don’t think you are helping yourself or your son by looking at some material accomplishments as the joy of life. I cannot imagine what it’s like to not ever hear your child’s voice and I, in no way mean to diminish that; i am completely unaware of how severe his case is; I just want to encourage you to focus on more positive things that he might be able to experience and enjoy your son. He may not own a home or have a gf or drive a car but he can have a life, and you and whatever team you have at your disposal can make that as enjoyable as possible for him.

            Melanie, don’t listen to these PC people. Some children that have autism are very severe and other parents have kids pretty high on the spectrum. It is NOT the same experience. Liz, you seem like a pretty cold person to me and you probably have no idea what Melanie is going through. I bet your child is high functioning. Stop judging the anger of other parents. You don’t know what they have been through. You tell her she needs to educate her child, but some kids with autism are not able to be educated. I can tell from your comment that you are not living the same experience as Melanie, so you probably shouldn’t judge her response.

Your child could do everything you said he never will and more, but first he needs your support, love, care and help. IF you continue to approach the situation with that attitude he will be condemned to live your fears. Your son needs you more than you know, show him compassion and kindness.

Autism is not a disease and no matter what you go through your child does not deserve to have someone speaking for him if it is so inaccurate and so potentially damaging. Autism is a neurological condition that causes many problems but a lot of them can be improved on and be comforted with the right approach. Please get some help and support for you, not just your son so you can feel better about what has happened.

    I must say I am not too surprised that This little one recovered by removing dairy and gluten. I do not know much about autism but I can assure you that by removing dairy, gluten and above all meat I have defeated a really painful condition affecting my sciatic nerve that was making it almost impossible to walk normally. It would be so nice if more and more people would exclude and even forget about these “foods” that the human body was never meant to ingest, let alone digest.

      There is no cure for autism as it is a neurological disability. Removing these foods from your diet can certainly help with some of the behaviors exhibited, however will not “cure” a person on the spectrum. We eliminate these foods from my son’s diet and have for a few years now, however, he is certainly not cured. I believe that perhaps vaccinations could play a part, however, I think we need to look at the bigger picture. If you look at our society as a whole, what do we exist on? Preservatives. I look at young people’s shopping carts in the grocery store and just want to cry. No one eats real food anymore. We cook in a microwave. We cook and store food in plastic. We pasteurize everything killing all the good stuff. We have genetically changed many of our foods, like wheat, so that they aren’t even genetically the same as they were when our grandparents baked their own bread. I hate to think about the water we drink–ever worried about the fluoride and such they put in it? Could go on and on…

    I knew it, after my son had a vaccination he went all weird on me. He was about 1 year old. One night he started crying really bad and there was nothing I could do to calm him down, but to let him cry him self to sleep by the time he finally fell asleep is was like 2 in the morning. When he woke up that morning he stopped talking, and refused to talk after that could not get him to talk for the life of me.Well he’s 6 years old now and he’s only jut starting to talk. I kept telling everyone that I was sure it was the vaccination he had but they kept telling me that there was no proof. Now I’m sure it was. Thank you for the article very insightful.

The start of his therapy was to get a blood test to check for allergies and then to eliminate those food (soy, diary, and gluten) in order for his gut to heal. Diet is crucial.

But until they walk in our shoes and actually see how the kids changes after the shot’s there’s no way to get threw to them! I even stop strangers with little ones and warn them about getting there kids shots ….. If I could save 1 child it’s well worth it. Fox news ran a 2 day report on this about 3 years ago how the government knows this and warned the family not to go public!. My hat go’s off to all those who lives are affected with having to change everything they do to try to improve or should I say how we work around our kids .

      • Hello! Point is….Simple dietary changes MATTER!

        While everyone gets in a tizzy because vaccines are mentioned, they quickly forget that the eye-opener here is the fact that for this child (and thousands of others around the world), their entire life trajectory and potential CHANGED when the parents learned the true nature of their child’s disorder… that it was physiological, not just psychological (like they were being told/sold…when only behavior therapy, drugs and lifelong institutionalization were presented as the ONLY options for helping).

        Realizing that body and brain are connected, they took personal charge of their child’s healthcare, sought more integrative/modern thinking professional guidance, and acted upon Hippocrates 101 – choosing to become very strategic about food and nutrition choices. Hundreds of scientific studies support the notion of giving such consideration to the diets of children with autism – it was a most intelligent thing to do. Certain foods, identified to be problematic…were avoided, while certain nutritious foods were added. As science and biology would have it, the body responds.

        Indeed, there’s much more too this, but the premise is SIMPLE. It’s likely that 80% of those affected right now, still have NO IDEA that an alternative life trajectory exists, that relief of certain pain and other symptoms exists, that there is hope.

        It’s one thing that we as society are somewhat to blame for the creation of this epidemic, but yet another matter that we act to obfuscate the reality of what it IS, and that children CAN improve. Whether or not you’re willing to notice the vaccine matter, you have a moral imperative to acknowledge/share that autism CAN be treated, and that the tip of the iceberg of awareness is that Food Matters.

        Lastly, it’s not JUST about the GFCF Diet – avoidance of gluten and casein are but one reason to follow a dietary strategy for autism – there are many other common sense reasons, here’s a very simply overview http://nourishinghope.com/2011/03/food-matters-for-autism-the-science-and-why-of-special-diets/

        Perhaps question #1 should be WHY? Why do so many of these kids self-select just a handful of really junky foods (mainly bread and dairy). Any tacit investigation to the connections between food choices and children’s health, learning, and behavior will open up a huge door or awareness that (sadly) MOST autism avenues continue to ignore (the fact the the disorder is physiological and that it’s future trajectory CAN be influenced by parents healthcare choices – #1 being…what they feed their children).

        DO NOT buy the mainstream BUNK about dietary intervention for autism – it is perhaps the most researched and strongest scientific rationale…routinely, around the world, when people embark on this path, positive things happen.

        DO NOT buy the mainstream BUNK that denies viable treatment avenues while they seek definitive causation.

      It’s fair to be skeptical for sure, as mainstream studies have suggested this, although it is uncertain who conducted the studies. I have provided some links to information where independent studies were done and results were confirmed. the Issue is the CDC wanted nothing to do with these findings and quickly dismissed them. When you notice glaring links between the sudden increase in vaccines and the sudden rise in autism, you have to begin looking at what might be the cause. Diets, environment, vaccines etc. So far the best, and confirmed in several cases, explanation is that vaccines play a big role. I personally feel that given the droves of people I’ve spoken to who noticed their children have immediate problems right after the MMR vaccine, I feel it’s only a matter of a couple years before they admit this to be the case.

        Talking to people is not actually a replacement for peer-reviewed evidence.

        Jury’s out on this one for me – the main study done which suggested a link was thoroughly debunked due to the researcher falsifying results. Yet people still believe it. I haven’t seen any studies that have found a link since, though I’ll read them if they’re there.

        There’s loads of shit in vaccines that could be taken out (Mercury! Seriously? We know it’s a neurotoxin even in the smallest doses!) though and the modern diet is crap and plays havoc with the mind/body so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that’s what’s behind pretty much every increase in disease that we’re seeing. Starting, oddly enough, at a time when people’s diets started to *really* go to hell, with margarine and synthetic sweeteners and loads of sugar and that new dwarf wheat.

        The paper referenced on the Dr. Jeff site citations at the bottom was from the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons — a politically right-wing fringe journal. There’s a good rundown of the problems with it, with sources, on Wikipedia. Might be worth a disclaimer up there. :)

            Simply because FOX news is featured as the video clip, does not mean there is an agenda. Not everything in this world had one. We are not a right or left winged anything here at CE. We don’t prescribe to politics at all and we approach things as information. Sometimes it’s more beneficial for us to simply look at information vs trying to find the agenda behind everything. A lot of times one does not exist.

        Thank you Joe for providing this information. There will always be those who just cannot believe that vaccines are harmful and blindly follow “science”. I work in the research field and know first hand how “research” is carried out and can be skewed to fit the researchers agenda. I also know, as you pointed out, that a lot of credible research is dismissed by powerful agencies and publications for many reasons. These reasons are not difficult to figure out! Drug companies are notorious for slanting their research and getting their papers published in “credible” journals while other not so well known papers are ignored and/or criticized because they do not follow the agenda of mainstream science. Sooner or later it will be the people who make the changes and bring the damage done by vaccines to full view.

    “…***began*** showing strong ***signs*** of Autism recovery….” –> not `was healed from`.
    “….changing an autistic child’s diet … can ****assist**** 60% of children with autism.” -> little more than half of them get some help from it.
    “…a gluten free diet having ****positive results**** for autistic children…” –> still not healed, just positive results
    “…after which she showed marked ****improvement**** in autistic and medical symptoms…” –> improvement, not healed, too.
    So where does it say there was a recovery completed?

    • Slim Jim

      The “recovery” will never be “Completed” because the boys body reacts to certain foods differently than other people. It would be fair to say it like this: This boy has particular symptoms, when eating these foods, that have been given the *label* “Autism”. Same way people have allergic reactions to peanuts or milk or Bee stings or certain medicines….

      It’s simply knowing and managing the body’s reactions to “X”. It just so happens that so many people are not informed by their doctors (not every doctor) about dietary causes and options when the “Autism” label has been slapped on.

      As a side note: There *ARE* reasons ($$$) why there are other major Countries that ban Monsanto and GMO foods, while the U.S.allows them. And why exactly is there a Monsanto protection Law ??? MMmm…

    There is still not one credible scientific study to link autism to vaccines, ever. Again in this article they fail to cite any evidence, instead just using an inaccurate fear inducing heading, and only showing a meaningless correlative graph. Correlation does not equal causation- science 101. 1991 was also the year that the digital answering machine was invented, and the year that children first started playing Sonic the Hedgehog video game. Maybe we should start investigating for a link between those things and autism!
    I can tell you one thing that history can show us for certain, measles, mumps & rubella are DEADLY. Only yesterday I read about an African father losing 9 children to measles, why? Because they don’t have access to the measles vaccine and are in the middle of a measles epidemic.
    Choosing not to immunise your children against deadly diseases, based on unsubstantiated claims that vaccines are linked to autism, is not only daft, it is dangerous.

      Thank you CK for a rational post! Correlation has never and will never imply causation! People gain weight in winter – does that mean cold weather causes weight gain??? NO! And what about the millions of children who do get vaccinations and do eat dairy and gluten and do not have autism??????? This sort of article makes me so angry. Look at the evidence (all of it), evaluate the evidence!!

        This is always the argument, that correlation doesn’t mean causation, we know, everyone know. But there is also many scientific studies that show a link between the two, why is this never discussed? It’s always brushed off as “non-credible resources.”

    • Is it possible that those 9 african children were malnourished and therefore their immune systems couldn’t fight the illness? Did that ever cross your mind? That article you read was a scare-mongering tactic. Think about it.

      Every single person living in developed countries where fresh water and food was available before 1963 (year measles vaccine was first introduced) did not die of measles … in fact it was considered part of life, like the chicken pox was when i was child. It wasn’t a matter of IF you got sick, it was WHEN. We all did! For 99.9% of people who fell ill, we recovered with stronger immune systems! Sure it may have been an inconvenience to our parents … isn’t that the biggest reason vaccine makers were able to market the medicine??
      Sure a few died. Bet your bottom dollar that there were underlying health conditions that did it.
      Providing MMR vaccines to millions of malnourished/half dead/zero immune system african children is not going to save their lives. Who’s kidding who? All those huge-hearted needing-a-tax-write-off corporations and foundations (think Bill & Melinda Gates) providing vaccines to malnourished countries would be better spending their $$ on real food / better water systems / education for these people..

      Have there been peer-reviewed studies conducted by those other than the makers of vaccines proving that all childhood vaccines are 100% safe and effective for 100% of the population, even when a number of the vaccines are given at the same time, like many doctors do in order to ‘catch up’?

      I’d like to see those studies if anyone has them available.
      Until I know for certain that my children will not be harmed in any way, and I know that the vaccines will provide 100% protection from these so-called ‘deadly illnesses’ then I will continue to do my best to protect them by providing nourishing food & fresh air and nursing them to health when they do become ill.

        “Credible” studies that looked at graphs showing correlation. After working with those diagnosed with ASDs for over 10 years, I can say that vaccines can make you sick, and learning becomes more difficult when a child is sick. That, paired with very unfortunate environmental conditions, can increase the chances that a child will engage in more behaviors that will lead to an autism diagnosis.

        Here’s a peer reviewed study about some possible contributing factors to an autism diagnosis. It’s published in a popular journal in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is the only treatment for autism approved by the US Surgeon General. I posted a link to the PDF so anyone can read the whole article.

    Quick thought – it refers to the vaccination schedule – did it occur o anyone that the schedule can be delayed or spread out to avoid overwhelming their little systems? Other countries have historically and have far less rates of autism than the U.S.

    Or, eliminate gluten and dairy from their diets and introduce them later in life?

    Way to pick up on this story from a year and a half ago… Specialized attention to Food and Nutrition is essential and can benefit every child…the science and common sense tells us so. Note: it seems it’s always the MEDIA that inject the word “cure,” if not only to entice ongoing controversy. There is no controversy that going from not paying attention, TO paying attention to diet is essential for this audience.

    Penn and Teller said something about it. Sorry, Joe, but the conclussions you mention about the link between autism and vaccines are incorrect. It is a shame that those conclussions are so attractive to the general public because they create a misconception about the real facts. The more they attack the conventional medicine, the more they are followed by people who is not trained in discerning if those ideas comes from valid studies or not.

    In my case, I prefer an autist child that a corpse because of not have been vaccinated. That in the (wrong) hypothesis that vaccines causes autism.

      I don’t think it’s fair to say it is incorrect. There are thousands upon thousands of unvaccinated children who are much healthier than those who are vaccinated. There is also a ton of evidence on both sides when it comes to vaccines. TO quote Penn and Teller is like quoting any random person really. Fact of the matter is, people need to make educated choices and they need to be aware of what the risks are, YES, there are risks, that is a cold hard fact.

    • Our family drinks raw organic milk and have seen great improvements in our health since switching from standard grocery store dairy. We made the switch shortly after I was finished nursing my son and learned that he had a lactose intolerance. Raw (unpasteurized) milk often doesn’t bother those with lactose intolerances as all the proteins and enzymes are still intact and all the beneficial bacteria do a world of good for immune systems. It’s truly amazing. You can Google ‘raw milk health benefits’ and find loads of information. It’s not nearly as dangerous as health officials would like you to believe. In fact, in Europe you can buy raw milk from a vending machine … imagine that? :) You’re more likely to die from food poisoning from a melon or spinach or a chicken breast here in north america. http://www.raw-milk-facts.com/raw_milk_health_benefits.html

        Exactly! I grew up on a farm drinking milk straight from the bulk tank. When I started drinking pasteurized milk in college, that’s when my gut issues began. Now I don’t drink milk because of it. When you pasteurize it, you remove all the good stuff. :(

    It isn’t the vaccine that is the problem – it is the Thimerisol which is added as a dispersant (as I understand it). Supposedly they stopped adding Thimerisol sometime in the 90’s, but continued using up stockpiles of vaccines that included it. It is really sad that corporate greed prevents REAL studies from being conducted and made public. If that were the case, we could easily continue to vaccinate, but without poisoning ourselves. Vaccines aren’t all bad…lies and cover-ups are.

    here’s a counter: http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2013/06/06/3776327.htm perhaps you should look at the original study and what happened to that. The UK “doctor” who found the first “link” was completely discredited, had his license taken away, and every single co-author of the study issued a mea culpa and the Lancet issued a redaction. You can’t die from autism, but you can die from tetanus, meningitis, or many of the other things we vaccinate for. Here’s an idea. Maybe it’s easier to pass autism genes on now, coupled with our diagnostic tools being so much better now and the stigma of having a mental disorder lessened than say the 1940s or 50s. I really hope you all have medical degrees or enough medical and statistical knowledge to be such experts in determining what good studies and population based medicine should be.

    If you go to this page codexalimentarius.org/standards/list-of-standards and read standard CAC/GL 13-1991 about treating row milk you will see that main word is lactoperoxidase system. If you search it on wikipedia you will see:”The lactoperoxidase system plays an important role in the innate immune system by killing bacteria in milk and mucosal” and “under certain conditions, the lactoperoxidase system may contribute to oxidative stress”. So what is oxidative stress: “In humans, oxidative stress is thought to be involved in the development of cancer,[1] Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease,[2] atherosclerosis, heart failure,[3] myocardial infarction,[4][5] fragile X syndrome,[6] Sickle Cell Disease,[7] lichen planus,[8] vitiligo,[9] autism,[10] and chronic fatigue syndrome.[11]. So, the problem may be not in milk, but in treated milk. Sorry for bad english. http://www.codexalimentarius.org/standards/list-of-standards/en/?no_cache=1 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactoperoxidase
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxidative_stress
    Important thing is: The Codex Alimentarius Commission, established by FAO and WHO in 1963 develops harmonised international food standards, guidelines and codes of practice to protect the health of the consumers and ensure fair practices in the food trade. The Commission also promotes coordination of all food standards work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations.
    So, we should start with main problem: World Health Organization.

    there is no evidence linking vaccination to austism – these claims get made all the time but they are full of it – if you read them anywhere ask them what article they got their information from – usually other half arsed websites that are not credible sources. I don’t get why people want to try to use usubstantiated claims and scare tactics to stop people getting their kids immunised. We have thousands of peer reviewed research journals out there – surely they are not suggesting that credible research would be denied publication from all of these journals due to the conspiracy of all the lying health researchers out there – someone out there would be more than happy to make their career out of debunking vaccination if there was any substance to the theory – it is just more rubbish trying to convince the gullible – there is nothing wrong with trying to have good nutrition but to make unsubstantiated claims like this is just sad.

      Truly this is not true. THe article does mention that some studies have been done to show there is no link, but there have also been studies to show a link. Both are out there. SO to say it’s never been link is incorrect. We need to think more critically than just listen to what mainstream news says. Do we not forget vaccinations are a multi billion dollar industry? Does anyone happen to know how much has been paid out over the years in vaccination damage pay? Its in the billions.. until The government passed a law making it impossible for people to sue vaccine makers any longer.

    I concur…. my son had a horrible reaction to the MMR vacination… nightmares, daymares, rashes, strange fevers… and has had other problems… I put him on a very strick pure diet right off, no dairy other than cheese and gave him aloe vera in his water for a few years.. trying to leach the toxins out… . He is doing better… but I wish I could sue the MMR vaccinations for harming my only son, killing his opportunites and a zest for life…The MMR did this to him…. he reacted right away… I do not need any freakin studies…. I watched him transform right before my eyes from a happy baby to a mess…. MY CHILD! Forever he lives with that one mis-take I made, the choice of the vaccination….

      Thanks for sharing. This is what I find fascinating is that there are soo many people who have come forward with bad experiences and yet people continue to turn a blind eye because those who benefit from the profit of vaccines claim there is no danger in them. I think at the very least we need to look a lot more into the independent study of vaccinations. ALl the people who claim this article will kill people? Not a single person gets Polio today unless it’s from the vaccine..

  22. Patrick

    You cannot just create a link between two independent things that have coincidentally both increased over time.

    The graph in the article shows ‘a link’ between autism and vaccinations does it? Why don’t you get another graph that shows autism DIAGNOSIS and anything else that has increased in the past 30-35 years, for example, air travel, obesity, melting of the polar ice caps, the amount of cable channels there are on tv… And what would you see? By your ‘logic’ all of the above cause autism!!

    I think you’ll find that a more reasonable and much much less irresponsible explanation is that autism has been getting and is better understood and better diagnosed, therefore creating an increase in numbers. Those who have very mild autism may not have been diagnosed with it 40 years ago, because very few would have heard of it or thought to seek a medical diagnosis. People INCORRECTLY link autism to vaccines because shortly after most children are administered vaccines like the MMR, they begin to develop and show their personalities just as children who don’t get vaccines do.

    It is irresponsible for people like you to spread false stories and ‘links’ that have NO PROOF. Articles like this and people with your mind set are causing and will cause epidemics- see the case of the measles epidemic in Wales this year http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-22481243
