 – but CDC refuses to look at vaccines as cause

The CDC came out with a new autism report this week, and I am going to republish (a portion of) a very comprehensive analysis written by J.B. Handley, who is one of the world’s most knowledgeable experts on this topic.

But before reading this excellent report, watch this short clip from The Doctors show which is now over 13 years old, as he completely destroys the notion that vaccines don’t cause autism.

I can’t believe this is still available on YouTube. If it ever disappears, let us know and we will put a copy up on our video channels.

New CDC Study: Autism rate up 243% since 2000

by J.B. Handley


A brand new study was released today by Centers for Disease Control pegging the autism rate in the United States at 1 in 44 children, up from 1 in 150 children in 2000 when their complex surveillance system—The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network—was first instituted.

Looked at another way, that means 2.7% of children today have autism, and the rate has grown by 243% since 2000.

In the old days, people panicked when they saw a devastating disability amongst our children increase by 243%. But, the CDC isn’t worried, their “Public Health Action” from the study is unfortunately par for the course:

The continued increase among children identified with ASD, particularly among non-White children and girls, highlights the need for enhanced infrastructure to provide equitable diagnostic, treatment, and support services for all children with ASD.

Any question in the report about WHY the rate has increased so much? Of course not. But, it actually gets worse. Like clockwork, the denialists have been working overtime to assure us all that these new numbers are absolutely, positively nothing to worry about. Just look at this reassuring headline from two “experts” today in STAT News.
