I recieved an Invitation today to attend an Autism dinner in Atlanta My 5 year old son has Autism.I was reading the information they sent along with the invite .I was astonded when I read that 1 in every 131 kids born in Georgia has Autism. That is staggering numbers to say the least. I am told by the dr's of my son that it is mot caused by metals in the vaccines as one thought to be so I just wonder if we will ever know what is doing this to our children?

Your doctor may be an idiot because this doctor thinks they do.

To what degree of scientific certainty can we prove that currentepidemic of autism was caused by the mercury-based preservative,thimerosal, in childhood vaccines?

In response to this question, David Ayoub, MD, told IndependentMedia TV, ''I can state that the certainty of the science supporting mercury as a major cause of autism is probably more overpowering than the science behind any other disease process that I studied dating back to medical school.''
"I think a disease that effects more individuals than AIDS or
cancer, in previously normal infants and children," he states, "has created a sense of urgency amongst researchers."

According to Ayoub, "A growing number of experimental,
epidemiological and biochemical research, has unequivocally shown that mercury is directly linked to the development of autism spectrum disorders and is significantly toxic to the gastrointestinal, immunological, metabolic and neurobiological systems in children."

"The science of causality is known and understood down to themanner in which mercury impairs the neural pathways of attention,"he adds, "I really don't see the need for more research to prove causality." He believes the focus should be "directed towards
methods to remove mercury from the body and repairing those biochemical systems that are injured by mercury."

As expected by science, extensive searching for a genetic cause of autism has not turned up a significant find that would explain the recent increased rate in autism. The latest genetic find, at best, might explain 0.5% of autism causation. Most agree that a genetic predisposition is likely (like those that lead to low glutathione levels), but that a toxic exposure is absolutely needed. Consider also, that this increased toxic exposure would have had to occur in all 50 states at about the same time as all states have reported similar increases in autism rates. Only something like the government recommended vaccine program fits this need for a time dependent, uniform exposure of a toxin throughout all the states.

vaccines cause autism.
