Autism and the Amish

In the June 30-July 14, 2005 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the noted environmental activist, author, and radio show commentator, Robert Kennedy Jr., wrote about how United States public health officials, including the Centers for Disease Control,  pharmaceutical companies, members of the Bush administration, including Bill Frist, and other public officials fudged numbers and refused to release the epidemiological raw data  conclusively proving that vaccines caused an epidemic of autism in the United States.  Currently, all but a handful of the children and adults diagnosed with autism were born before 1989, when the number of mercury-laden vaccines given children increased and vaccinations began to be given at birth.   

Kennedy also noted that the mercury-based preservative, thimerisol, was still being allowed in pediatric flu vaccines, other pharmaceutical products, and in vaccines shipped abroad, causing millions of children in around the world to develop autism (including 1.3 million children in China alone, where autism did not exist until they started receiving vaccines).  In an independent study of autism amongst an Amish population in the United States which does not allow vaccinations, there is virtually no autism - of the four Amish children out of the entire population studied who were diagnosed autistic, all had been vaccinated, some prior to adoption. 

There also appears to be an epidemiological link between mercury and other neurological conditions in children and adults, including ADD, ADHD, Parkinson's and Alzheimers.   According to Kennedy, "If, as the evidence suggests, our public-health authorities knowingly allowed the pharmaceutical industry to poison an entire generation of American children, their actions arguably constitute one of the biggest scandals in the annals of American medicine."
