How Dangerous is it to find an Autism Cure?

Using the word ‘cure’ in the context of autism is considered quite controversial.  Cure in any area of medicine is deemed taboo but in autism some even find it offensive.  Ever heard of ‘neuro-diversity’?  This is the latest psy-op that would have us believe that autism is merely a ‘difference’ not a disease and if you dare suggest otherwise, you must be a douchey parent who won’t accept your child as they are.. You must a be perfectionist.. Your kid would never be good enough for you…  Well, let’s challenge that a bit.  Here’s a partial list of what autism carries with it…

A detailed assessment conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention demonstrated that children with autism had much higher than expected rates of all of the medical conditions studied, including: eczema, allergies, asthma, ear and respiratory infections, gastrointestinal problems, severe headaches, migraines, and seizures (Kohane et al., 2012).

There is firm evidence of immune dysfunction in individuals with autism. Results of numerous studies point to abnormal immune function, including on-going neuroinflammatory response. Several postmortem and in vivo investigations found chronic inflammatory processes in multiple areas of the brain and multiple studies have found a correlation between levels of immune dysfunction and severity of autistic symptoms (Vargas et al., 2005; Chez et al., 2007; Li et al., 2009; Morgan et al., 2010; Wei et al., 2011; Young et al., 2011; Suzuki et al., 2013). These observations resemble findings in other inflammatory and autoimmune disease states, in which elevations in levels of cytokines or autoantibodies are associated with the pathogenesis of neuroinflammation, neurotoxicity and neuronal injury, and subsequent behavioural and cognitive impairments, for example multiple sclerosis or HIV induced neurological dysfunction.

Mortality is significantly increased in autism, with death rates being three to ten times higher than the general population (Bilder et al., 2012; Woolfenden et al., 2012). These deaths tend to be the result of medical comorbidities, such as epilepsy, gastrointestinal conditions and respiratory disorders (Shavelle et al., 2001; Pickett et al., 2006; Gillberg et al., 2010; Bilder et al., 2012; Woolfenden et al., 2012). One study found that deaths from gastrointestinal and respiratory disorders were 40.8 and 24.5 times higher, respectively, in moderately to severely affected patients versus typical peers (Shavelle et al., 2001). Another study that looked at the general health of adults with autism found that without intervention, those patients appear to be at significant risk for developing diabetes, coronary heart disease, and cancer (Tyler et al., 2011). Adults with developmental disabilities are also at much higher risk for osteoporosis and show severe degrees of bone demineralisation (Jaffe et al., 2001; Jaffe and Timell, 2003).

So people with autism are far more likely to experience seizures, cancer, migraines, gastrointestinal disorder, respiratory disorder, diabetes, coronary heart disease, neuro-inflammation (encephalopathy), Mitochondria dysfunction, MAST cell, Autoimmune disease… etc. etc…. Not to mention, 3-10 times more likely to die from one or more of the above mentioned diseases.. And here’s the Wiki short list of frequently co-occurring  disorders including some psychiatric…

And I won’t even get into viruses, bacteria and infections… Okay…. Maybe I will…

Here’s an excerpt from the article: Mysterious Autism Virus(es) Revealed? by the late Dr. Jeff Bradstreet:

If we accept many if not most autism cases involve some form of CNS immune activation or inflammation, we should look for candidate viruses. So you may be thinking its time to consult a medical virologist.  Not a bad idea. Let’s do that.

I can go back to my colleague, Professor Persico.  He went a long way to define our understanding of inflammation in the brain; now we are calling on him to help us find our mystery virus or viruses.  Take some time and read the abstract below.

image26

Okay – let’s add BK virus, JC virus and SV40 (all polyomaviruses) to our list of possible mystery viruses. (Note: BK and JC are the names of the viruses, and SV40 is a byproduct of contaminated polio vaccine).…..

Biological assays lend support to the association between measles virus or MMR and autism whereas epidemiologic studies show no association between MMR and autism. Further research is needed to clarify both the mechanisms whereby viral infection early in development may lead to autism and the possible involvement of the MMR vaccine in the development of autism.

So what are we left with?

Possible: BK, JC, SV40 and infrequently but possibly XMRV.

From animal models: Borna Virus

Supported but controversial: Measles

Prenatal: Influenza, Rubella and others, but there is no evidence these prenatal viral exposures persist in the infant.

It is likely – as suggested by Persico’s team, that multiple viruses are simultaneously present and working together to cause this mischief we label autism.

So now we’re talking about multiply infections latent in the Central Nervous System, Brain, Gut, plasma, anywhere really… just wrecking havoc and we’re supposed to “accept”?  Please for a minute activate your empathy pulse and think about having a sickness like the measles, chicken-pox or even a poison ivy infection… Imagine that: on your brain, in your gut and NEVER leaving…

How do you think you’d behave?  How might you act? And if you had no language?

Might it manifest physically?

And what about the rest of it?  What about all the other illnesses comorbid with autism?

65214203_640

If you were sick like that, would you accept it?

Having said that, I’m all in favor of radical acceptance of the CHILD.

It is okay to be mindful of your child’s needs and not place them in environments that are stressful to them, it is okay to let them use self-stimulatory behavior without judgment, it is okay to accept that this maybe their permanent state and that they are perfectly lovable and valuable just as they are.

My son and children like him have value!  Quite frankly, if you don’t see it, then I unapologetically take a non-moral relative stance and I judge you!

autismI do accept my child as he is but I also want a cure for his disease and ‘no’ that isn’t just something I want, I know he wants it too.  Wouldn’t you?  Do you think he likes not being able to speak?

Do you think he enjoys having his gut a flame?

Do you think he enjoys banging his head, when the headaches won’t stop?  Our children have been robbed of a normal childhood and nobody cares!  Our kids do not get to catch fireflies, eat dirt, run around the neighborhood barefoot and jump on their bike into a magical, wind in the hair, swishing sensation of freedom…

kids-back-in-the-day     Do you remember that feeling?

So now back to the original question, ‘how dangerous is it to find a cure?’  Would it even be possible?

To answer this, I return back to the work of the late Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, who was found dead in a North Carolina river on June 19, 2015 in of an alleged self-inflicted gunshot to the chest.

See his lecture “How Close Are We to an Autism Cure? Part 1” given at the Autism One Conference end of May 2015, just 3 weeks prior to his death.

A couple of things struck me watching this video.  Somewhere about half way through he started discussing the role of mycoplasma or walking pneumonia in autism.  This reminded me of another physician and microbiologist, Dr. Garth Nicholson.  According to Dr. Nicholson, Mycoplasma was found in the inoculations given to Gulf War Vets resulting in the autoimmune disorder known as ‘Gulf War Syndrome’. Not only were the vets getting sick from it but also their families and health care providers…

“There were several potential sources of chronic biological agents in the Persian Gulf Theater [9, 23]. First, deployed soldiers were given multiple inoculations, in some cases with experimental vaccines in unproved immunization schemes, such as vaccines that were given all at once instead of using an appropriate schedule of inoculations over months or years. Multiple vaccinations given simultaneously can result in immunosuppression and leave an individual susceptible to opportunistic infections. Some of these experimental vaccines could also have been contaminated with small amounts of slow-growing microorganisms. In fact, some of the vaccine lots to be sent to the Gulf were removed because of “microorganism contamination.” Dr Nicolson

“Weaponized Mycoplasmas,” Dr. Garth L. Nicolson, Lecture presented at the 9th Common Cause Medical Research Foundation Conference, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada on Aug. 29-31, 2008, Published July 29, 2013, Retrieved 10/29/14.

Dr. Nicholson author of the book, Project Day Lily continues….

We were actually forced to leave Texas. I was an endowed full professor and department chair at the University of Texas and I literally had to leave Texas because it became too dangerous. Several of my colleagues died. My boss was shot in the back of the head in his office, because he was going to blow the whistle on the prison testing experiments. So, it became very dangerous.

Wow.. It sounds to me like talking about mycoplasma (a known biological weapon) being injected into people is dangerous business, no?

So now we know that most of these autistic kids have one or more comorbid infections such as: mycoplasma, SV-40, measles and many others latent in their bodies… How do we get rid of it?  How do we regulate the immune system by promoting latent viruses or infections to express out, so that the body may heal naturally?

Enter the extremely controversial study Dr. Bradstreet and Italian colleagues performed on GcMaf or macrophage therapy…

Results: Individuals with ASD (32 males and 8 females, n 40, ages: 1 year 4 months – 21 years 2 months) had initial and post treatment assessment of Nagalase activity. Dosing of GcMAF was recommended based on previously reported response curves adjusted by the treating clinician for age, weight, and Nagalase levels. The average pre-treatment Nagalase activity of the autism group was 1.93 nmol/min/mg of substrate. This was well above the laboratory reported normal range of 0.95 nmol/min/mg. For the ASD group the average level at the time of second testing was 1.03 nmol/min/mg, reflecting an average reduction of 0.90 nmol/min/mg (P 0.0001). Apart from the likely immunological benefits of lowering the Nagalase activity of these individuals, uncontrolled observations of GcMAF therapy indicated substantial improvements in language, socialization and cognition. No significant side-effects were reported during the course of injections.

Study goes on to state that while 15 percent did not respond to this treatment, 70 percent had measurable improvements of immune regulation, while 15 percent showed recovery from autistic symptoms.  

Though there is a long history of this type of treatment that dates back to 1900, The Washington Post and other mainstream news outlets would have you believe it to be quackery…

“Given there is no evidence that modulating the immune system would have any benefit for children with autism spectrum disorder – especially given ASD’s genetic or epigenetic basis – I am not sure why Dr. Bradstreet would want to use this for ASD,” Peter Jay Hotez, dean of Baylor’s National School of Tropical Medicine, told The Post in an e-mail.

NO evidence?  Really?? Or maybe he is just ignorant to the long list of combordities that we already know frequently co-exist with the symptoms we call, autism.  Or maybe he does know the immune system in autistic individuals is a hot-mess but doesn’t think that regulating it would change their autism in any way.  Hmm… Sounds a bit like word magick!  In fact, I didn’t really read in his statement that the therapy wasn’t appropriate for autoimmune issues, just that there is “no evidence that modulating the immune system would have any benefit for children with autism spectrum disorder“.

This article would also have you believing that Bradstreet claimed GcMAF treatments to be a complete cure.. poof.. like a magic wand for autism but that wasn’t the case either and can be easily verified to be un-true by simply watching this video of his lecture discussing the therapy..

Dr. Bradstreet often used the word ‘remission’ when describing the recovered patients he treated and was careful not to use outright ‘cure’; as in some cases symptoms returned; though in others, they did not but never the less, better to be cautious and we all know that’s a loaded word.

Now enough of that…

Let’s go back to the GcMAF study.  It might not seem like much to say that 15 percent of the 1500 children were in remission of autistic symptoms after the macrophage therapy but when you consider the fact that these children were age range 1-20 and some may have spent years, 1000s if not millions of dollars on treatment, not to mention personal stress and their symptoms went away in 5 months?  70 percent experienced marked improvement and NO major side effects.  Kids with autism are often regarded as more sensitive than patients with full-blown AIDS and there were no major side effects?

The most common reported side effect was a low-grade fever, which the patients were instructed not to suppress unless it went over 102.  A low-grade fever when trying to express out latent disease sounds more like a benefit than a side effect.  It sounds like the immune system actually working normal for a change….

Allow us once again, to go back to the original question… ‘How Dangerous is it to find a cure for autism?’  And to whom would it be dangerous?  Pharma?  Agri? The System as a whole?  Of course the answer is ‘yes’ to all…

Even a 15 percent cure is a huge blow to the system…

Autism could potentially be the biggest cash cow in medical history… Allow me to re-phrase that..
Autism IS the biggest cash cow in medical history!!!!
If you consider the fact that it employs EVERY area of medicine… GI, Neuro, Psych, Immune, Allergy.. they have a higher rate of cancer, so even oncology.. then you add in rehabilitation: physical, speech and occupational therapy; behavioral therapy (costing around $200 an hour for which an average kid receives anywhere between 10-40 hours per week).  A countless parade of other alternative therapies, parent and teacher trainings, conferences, lectures, yoga for autistic kids, karate for autistic kids, soccer for autistic kids.. you get the idea…
Cancer, AIDS, Heart Disease, etc might all be big revenue sources but they won’t require specialist in every field including: law enforcement, dentistry, entertainment.. Think I’m exaggerating?  Google: autism and any profession.

The food industry (think about the cost of gluten-free bread)…..
6a00d8357f3f2969e2014e887e5b37970d-400wi
Alternative medicine? HUGE!  “Non”- Profits… forget about it!!!!
We’re talking even household appliances…  Air filters, water filters, sensory ‘friendly’ furniture… Try to think of ONE area in the service industry that hasn’t changed and/or benefited from autism.. And now think of how many industries have been created as a result of it.
These are life long patients that will require employment training, group homes, hospital care, in-home / facility nursing, 1-1 supervision…  etc. etc.
titanic
I’ve been known to say that autism was just the tip of the iceberg in the seek and destroy plan of the medical mafia.. I now take that back.. Autism IS the iceberg and we are riding the Titanic.
There’s been international raids for the past several months on distributors of macrophage therapy including one that took place at Bradstreet’s office, the day before his death.
So what do you suppose they found when they confiscated his office?  Possibly that the patients being treated with the therapy were not relapsing as was the case in many of the cancer studies.  Some of the cancer studies were shown to have patients recover as much as 100 percent and no relapse in 4-7 year follow ups…
“Normal Gc protein (also called Vitamin-D binding protein) , an abundant glyco-protein found in human blood serum, becomes the molecular switch to activate macrophages when it is converted to its active form, called Gc macrophage activating factor (Gc-MAF). Gc protein is normally activated by conversion to Gc-MAF with the help of the B and T cells (bone marrow-made and thymus gland-made white blood cells). But, as researchers explain it themselves, cancer cells secrete an enzyme known as alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase (also called Nagalase) that completely blocks conversion of Gc protein to Gc-MAF, preventing tumor-cell killing by the macrophages. This is the way cancer cells escape detection and destruction, by disengaging the human immune system. This also leaves cancer patients prone to infections and many then succumb to pneumonia or other infections.

The once-weekly injection of minute amounts of Gc-MAF, just 100 nanograms (billionths of a gram), activates macrophages and allows the immune system to pursue cancer cells with vigor, sufficient to produce total long-term cures in humans. 

Nobuto Yamamoto, director of the Division of Cancer Immunology and Molecular Biology, Socrates Institute for Therapeutic Immunology, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, says this is “probably the most potent macrophage activating factor ever discovered.”

Once a sufficient number of activated macrophages are produced, another Gc-MAF injection is not needed for a week because macrophages have a half-life of about six days. After 16-22 weekly doses of Gc-MAF the amount of Nagalase enzyme fell to levels found in healthy people, which serves as evidence tumors have been completely eliminated. The treatment was fool-proof – – – it worked in 100% of 16 breast cancer patients and there were no recurrent tumors over a period of 4 years, says a report in the January 15 issue of the International Journal of Cancer. [International Journal Cancer.2008 January15; 122(2):461-7] 

In another startling follow-up report by Dr. Yamamoto and colleagues, published in the upcoming July issue of Cancer Immunology Immunotherapy, Gc-MAF therapy totally abolished tumors in 8 colon cancer patients who had already undergone surgery but still exhibited circulating cancer cells (metastases). After 32-50 weekly injections, ”all colorectal cancer patients exhibited healthy control levels of the serum Nagalase activity, indicating erahttp://www.center4cancer.com/glyco-protein.phpdication of metastatic tumor cells,”said researchers, an effect that lasted 7 years with no indication of cancer recurrence either by enzyme activity or CT scans, said researchers. [Cancer Immunology, Immunotherapy Volume 57, Number 7 / July 2008] Published in an early online edition of this journal, this confirming report has received no attention by the new media so far, despite its striking importance. “
Now before I go any further, let me make it clear that I am not attempting to solve a potential murder mystery here.. I am not speculating that this is anything more or less than what local sheriff’s are currently claiming.  However, I do believe you can ask whether or not a gunshot to the chest, given the rather uncomfortable positioning is a common way to commit suicide.  Also, is it common to just happen to be standing by a river?  The answer to these questions maybe, ‘no’,  that it isn’t common but that still doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

Family and friends of Dr. Bradstreet have put together a fund-raiser to conduct an independent investigation…..

To find the answers to the many questions leading up to the death of Dr Bradstreet, including an exhaustive investigation into the possibility of foul play. Thank you for your support!

If you’re a skeptic and don’t believe the fundraising efforts are sincere, you can see for yourself the comments made by friends, family members, admirers, former patients and colleagues.

Even if Bradstreet was murdered, that doesn’t mean it was over GcMAF.  If you go back to the original lecture from Autism One, at around 33 mins. he shows slide pictures of a local farm using pesticides and states that he has covered up the farmer for his ‘own protection’.  He was also involved in multiple vaccine injury court cases including Bruesewitz vs. Wyeth which landed all the way to the Supreme court.  He was involved in 2 congressional hearings including the Dan Burton report of 2002.  His own son was one of the children scoped at the Royal Free Clinic by Wakefield’s team for autistic enterocolitis.  He has had his name on countless research papers, mostly studying potential autism / autoimmune disorder treatments.

Also, in a bit of a strange coincidence; there have been a total of 5 holistic health care providers in the Florida area that have died in mysteriously within weeks of each other..  What is all about?

At this moment in history it doesn’t seem to be a question as to whether or not vaccines cause autism.  Both anecdotal and scientific evidence clearly shows that they do.  It is the big pink elephant in the room…

But to those so far in the thick of their indoctrination, it could be a big pink elephant, riding a unicycle and playing a trombone and they still wouldn’t see it…

So why all the fear?  What’s more dangerous at this point, uncovering the cause or the cure?

I  am not claiming to have the answer to that but I do know that the cause is abundantly obvious, while the cure remains elusive…

      I NEVER called ANYONE a douchey parent! And I never said that I don’t accept my child as he is, in fact I said the OPPOSITE and that I judge people who don’t love and VALUE autistic people as they are.

      I also NEVER stated what type of treatments my son receives nor that I was giving him any of the treatments mentioned in this article.

      Therefore, I’m afraid you are the one who is deluded and rather rude! Not just rude but slanderous! To make the accusations that you’ve made is abusive and I will need to block you.

      Where does she say she submitted her child to any illegal and harmful practices? Nowhere in the article does she say that. If your autistic child is great the way he is good for you. She’s talking about autistic children who are suffering. Where is your compassion. You might be a good parent, but you are a douchey person for lacking compassion when it comes to the suffering of other families and their children. Are you one of these parents who accepts their children because they are always drugged up on risperdol, ritalin ect.? Your also a douchy person for lacking literacy skills because you can’t read a simple article with lots of pictures and links to back it up. YOU sicken me. I would suggest that you should be locked up as well but I realize that you are already in your own delusional prison. Good luck with every thing and your lovely autistic child the way he is I wish you the best.

      Wow, Insider. Skim much? Incorrectly infer just a bit? Anger issues, maybe? There is nothing deluded about a well researched article that articulately presents accurate information. Furthermore, staying informed and constantly searching for ways to help your child have a healthier, safer, and better life is one of the most loving things a parent can do. The word “douchery” was used in the context of the ridiculous and ignorant things that are said ABOUT parents who continue to question the system. I’m thinking this writer will now add, “People like you should be locked up, and your kids put in loving homes, not ones where they’ll be treated like torture victims. You sicken me” to the list of STUPID things people say.

    Here in lies the wording problem….in “Curing Autism, people like me would never come to existence, because Autism is what makes my abilities greater in particular areas…..like Neurotypical people who also have a higher susceptibility to all of the diseases above, i suggest that our vocal and motor tics are the thing that needs to be cured, NOT THE AUTISM…our inability to control our bodies and communicate our ailments is very frustrating. In all the Autistic people i have had the pleasure of communicating with via ipad and other methods, not one mentioned a majority of these diseases (which should be cured individually) as the reason for frustration and body movements. By all means, cure these horrible diseases for all people, who suffer from them, but leave our neuro-diversity alone. Don’t scare parents into eraticating the possibility of an Autistic child, only to choose an embryo with less capability of solving mathematical or scientific theories. If it wasn’t for Autism you wouldnt have many of the things in this world that you as Neurotypical people take for granted…cure the negative symptems and leave our unique abilities and awesomeness alone.

      The point is that if you cure some of the horrible diseases frequently co-occurring with autism, many of the so-called autistic behaviors naturally disappear for example self-injury and posturing.

      I hope you realize that there are many people who can solve mathematical and scientific equations that don’t have autism. So I I’m not really convinced that having autism makes you a genius or special in the math and science department by any means. By the way you can’t solve theories you can either prove them wrong or right. It’s good if you are comfortable in yourself for being autistic, but she is talking about people who suffer greatly because they can’t communicate verbally, or they are in constant bowel pain or have constant migraine headaches or horrible allergies ect. Did you read the article ? I didn’t see anywhere where she mentioned anything about curing autism. It would probably help to read the article throughly before making a comment. And if you are too blind and self-centered to realize that there are people on the neurodiversity spectrum who are suffering. I would suggest that you lack compassion. And lack of compassion and understanding is defiantly a disability that needs to be cured.

    This was an excellent article! Thank you for taking your time to present. I did vaccine research, in the latter part of the 80’s, right after my first child was born. Much of what I read literally brought me to tears. Even still, I teetered on the decision, of whether to vaccinate or not, since I thought the possible alternative of not vaccinating could be worse, based on indoctrinated fear. At one point, I had decided to vaccinate, one disease at a time, but per the doctor, this could not be done, b/c the vaccines were bundled together. I continued to read, and one question was posed, which was my deciding factor, and it was…”Are we bankrupting our immune systems?” I’m going off memory here, but they were speaking of whether the body kept producing T-fighter lymphocytes, or if we only had so many, to last us. I don’t remember the name of the book, although I know I ordered it from the University of Washington’s library. Anyway, to sum it up, I never vaccinated either of my two children, and they hardly ever saw a doctor, b/c they rarely got sick. Both of them have only been on antibiotics once in their lives, and one is now 28 and the other 25. I’m so very thankful for my decision, but, at the same time, my heart certainly goes out to those who chose vaccines, and then suffered the devastating consequences. I cried over children, just like this, years ago, and still do.

    Anyway, in order to help people better understand the vaccine issue, I’ve come up with the following analogy…

    Imagine if America were surprise-attacked by another country. We could probably withstand one attack, by a foreign nation, maybe even 2 or 3, depending on what countries they were, but, imagine if we were attacked by 14 countries, either all at once, or within months of each other, with absolutely no warning. There is no way we could survive those kinds of attacks, as our troops would be exhausted, and many would be dead. Much of our weaponry would be destroyed, along with our ammunition and bomb supplies depleted, as well. Common sense suggests, the same scenario could be applied to the fighter cells, within the human body. They are our defense against foreign invaders, and when a vaccine (shot, like a weapon), containing numerous diseases, are injected right into the bloodstream, it’s like a surprise attack, on our bodily armies. This bodily Army, didn’t have the luxury of help, from the Navy (watery stomach acids) or Air Force (airways of the sinuses and lungs). No, it was shot directly into the bloodstream, the bloodstream that pumps right through the “heart” of our human domain.

    Anyway, I wish you well, in your endeavors. Keep up the good fight. We are the symbolic immune systems of an ailing society.

    april just in case this blog gets removed by others (the same entities that are trying to silence the anti vaxxers and the doctors) do you have this backed up to a hard copy in a safe place, in other words, not online or in the cloud, for safekeeping? The reason I ask is because some of the links i have been accessing online are disappearing and I would hate to see this article disappear before you have hard copy to back it up. And someday I might want a copy. I am posting and crossposting on these topics like crazy trying to reach as many people as possible and your article is fabulous. thanks

      I did have it backed up but thanks to your suggestion, I’m going to safeguard it even more. Thanks again.
