Supreme Court: Oral arguments for Bruesewitz v. Wyeth

Tuesday, October 12 the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Bruesewitz v. Wyeth.

Age of Autism: An American Classic

Most of the time the autism community moves ahead in small steps, but other times we make great strides. So it is with the publication of Olmsted and Blaxill’s seminal work, The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-made Epidemic. Today, we take a giant stride forward.

Tracing the destruction caused by mercury in medicine throughout the centuries, Olmsted and Blaxill deconstruct modern-day arguments that rest on shoddy science and manipulative semantics. Clearly written and rigorously annotated, Olmsted and Blaxill’s work is chilling in the truths it uncovers.

CBS News - Family to Receive $1.5M in First-Ever Vaccine-Autism Court Award

The first court award in a vaccine-autism claim is a big one. CBS News has learned the family of Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million dollars for her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering.

Hannah was described as normal, happy and precocious in her first 18 months.

Then, in July 2000, she was vaccinated against nine diseases in one doctor's visit: measles, mumps, rubella, polio, varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae.

HRSA-funded Poison Control Center Says Vaccines Don't Cause Autism

Warning! The following contains so many factual errors on so many levels the reader may have to notify their local poison control center of poisoning by propaganda.

A poison control center dismissing the dangers of thimerosal? It all makes sense when most of their funding comes from HRSA, which also funds the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

The Bottom Line:
Vaccines Don't Cause Autism

Food – The Wonder Years

I’ve always had a certain fascination with cooking. I learned to cook at an early age and worked as a cook at a number of restaurants to earn money when going to college. I even toyed with the idea of attending the Culinary Institute of America.

Growing up I loved heading off into the woods with a book, sleeping bag, Coleman lantern and a mess kit. The highlight of the day would be building a campfire and preparing dinner. With luck it would be fish, potatoes and berries.

Truer Today Than Ever

Searching for a document today I ran across a piece Robert F. Kennedy Jr. wrote in 2004 and was struck by its relevance today. Enjoy.

By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Dads are Important

• The more frequently a father visited the hospital of an infant who is prematurely born, the more rapidly the infant gained weight and the more quickly the infant was able to leave the hospital.
• More important, the more the father visited, the better was the infant's social-personal development and its ability to adapt.
• In a study of black infants, the more interaction the boy had with the father, the higher his mental competence and psychomotor functioning by the age of six months.
