CDC: Increase in Number of Children Diagnosed with Autism

CDC: Increase in Number of Children Diagnosed with Autism

More American children are now considered to be autistic, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The numbers released by the CDC show one in 88 children has been identified as having an autism spectrum disorder.  Among boys it is 1 in 54.

Just 3 years ago, 1 in 110 children were diagnosed with autism disorders.  The new number show a 23-percent jump from 2006-2008.

The largest increases among Hispanic and African-American children.

The cause remains a mystery, but according to Dr. James McPartland from the Yale Study Center, the increase might be explained by better diagnosis.

"The way we diagnose autism spectrum disorder has changed. We're more inclusive. We include people with more cognitive ability and less severe problems then we have in the past," he said.

The study shows the average age of diagnosis is four years old, but experts said they are hoping to get children diagnosed by eighteen months to give them a head start on treatment.

With the CDC recognizing that Autism rates have gone up by 23% in just two years (1 in 54 boys being diagnosed)and saying that Autism is reaching epidemic proportions...

What is the CDC's remedy? How do they plan to LOWER the numbers of those diagnosed?

As a CBS News article noted: They're going to change the definition. Instead of finding the cause, and treating it...they're simply covering up the real numbers by removing a significant portion of those diagnosed NOW under current criteria in order to FALSELY lower the numbers based on a NEW definition of Autism.

That should be a criminal offense. Shame on those who think otherwise.

Seriously, what is the cause for this "sudden" jump in Autism? If the autism rate has doubled in six years and is becoming an epidemic...what's causing it? Environmental factors? Viruses? Bacteria?

What happened starting around 6 years ago that would cause a sudden spike in the ensuing years?

Wasn't there a change in vaccines given to babies around that time?

Kathy Wakefield, immunisation lead at NHS Rotherham, said “Some years ago, there were many stories in the media linking MMR with autism. These caused some parents to delay their child’s MMR immunisation or not to have it at all resulting in outbreaks of measles. However, independent experts from around the world have found no credible scientific evidence for such a link and in fact now have a large amount of evidence showing that there is no link.”

In contrast to Ms. Wakefield’s statement, the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) would like to show how Microcompetition could be the missing link.In other words, Microcompetition could be the biological mechanism linking the MMR II vaccine to Autism.

The vaccine package insert for the MMR II vaccine written by Merck & Co., Inc. and that can be downloaded from the FDA website, shows that Fetal cell line Wistar RA 27/3, Fetal cell line WI-38, and genetically engineered human albumin are all used in the vaccine.( )

The CBCD believes that the current purification processes cannot completely filter all foreign DNA plasmids used in the process of manufacturing the MMR II vaccine. Therefore, some foreign DNA fragments end up being injected into infants.

In support of this belief, Dr. Helen Ratajczak, Ph.D. who published two papers on the subject in the Journal of Immunotoxicology, says “The MMR II vaccine is contaminated with human DNA from the cell line in which the rubella virus is grown. This human DNA could be the cause of the spikes in incidence. An additional increased spike in incidence of autism occurred in 1995 when the chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue.” (Merck and Co., Inc., 2001; Breuer, 2003).

The contamination of MMR II with foreign DNA fragments, discussed by Dr. Ratajczak, combined with Microcompetition, discovered by Dr. Polansky is the missing link between MMR II and Autism.

If the MMR 2 is causing microcompetition, which in turn "could" cause Autism, one needs to ask what the CDC's motivation in ignoring such evidence could be.
