From the April 2004 Idaho Observer:
CDC sounds the "Autusm A.L.A.R.M."
International epidemiological watchdog urges surveillance, early detection and [drug] intervention; doesn't bother to advance a theory as to why 1 of 166 American kids are now autistic
By The Idaho Observer
AUTISM A.L.A.R.M. is a new tool being used by organized medicine to instruct primary caregivers and medical personnel on how to spot autism in its early stages.
The project is funded through a cooperative agreement between the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They have been working jointly for nearly two years to develop a plan combating growing public concerns over the nation's dramatic increase in children with behavior disorders.
According to the AUTISM A.L.A.R.M. flyer, available free for the download, 1 in 6 children are diagnosed with a developmental disorder and/or behavioral problem and; 1 in 166 children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
That means one in 68 American families now has an autistic child at home to take care of, commented The Autism Autoimmunity Project Director April Oakes.
The project was piloted in Minnesota beginning in summer, 2003 and adopted nationally in January, 2004. Though the flyer urges early detection and intervention through surveillance, it advances no theories as to what may be causing such shocking numbers of our children to be diagnosed as neurologically damaged.
The Idaho Observer is not afraid to advance a theory. We believe babies subjected to vaccines, formula or breastmilk from malnourished and/or drug-dependent mothers who live in polluted environments may contribute to the development of autism.
The advantage of eating and drinking right, creating a loving home environment for a baby, abstaining from vaccination and other pharmaceutical drugs is that the chances your child will develop autism spectrum disorder is reduced to almost zero. Curiously, the chances he will suffer permanent damage or die from a vaccine-preventable childhood disease is also almost zero.
