We join many in the community who grieve the passing of the courageous Dr. Bernadine Healy, the first female director of the NIH and a person of great integrity.
Please see also the commentary and video at Age of Autism:
I have not been feeling good lately as my socializing has been plummeting to the point of wreaking my family ties, I am a Asian and my parents have been take care of me for 30 years, Plus the other disabilities I have to top it off. It stresses them something horrible!
What Are the Health Risks from Pesticides and Chemicals from Dietary Supplements?
by Larry Newman
Last month Kirkman® introduced its Ultra Tested™ products, which are laboratory tested for more than 950 contaminants. Included in what we test for are potentially harmful levels of heavy metals, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, endocrine disruptors and chemicals.
No other nutritional supplement company in the world offer’s testing to this degree, but we believe this level of testing is necessary to ensure the safety of nutritional supplement products.
It’s time once again for my monthly assault on the web-waves. June’s installment of Injecting Sense: The Radio Edition will come your way on Tuesday, June 28th, at 1:00 pm EDT, on Autism One Radio.
My guest will be Cynthia Cournoyer, author of What About Immunizations?: Exposing the Vaccine Philosophy. It’s a great read, discussing how vaccine interests have misframed the debate. I think you'll find Tuesday's conversation most interesting.
On Friday May 27th a group of Dad’s at the Autism One Conference got together for the first ever Dad’s Night Out.
The event was at Lucky Strike Lanes, where the Dad’s bowled, ate, relaxed and “talked” with other Dad’s. Yes, thats correct Mom’s and Dad’s reading this…they encouraged and inspired each other to help their children and families. It was exactly what we wanted to happen!
If you have anything other than a small roll-aboard suitcase, I would not recommend this route. It would be better to take a shuttle. For those that are a little adventuresome and fearless, proceed!
This year's conference is quite a bit further from the airport than in previous years. The Westin does have a special deal with a shuttle company but it is still $27 each way and they do not have a complementary shuttle like the one in Rosemont.
I must admit that there are times when too much work, too much of in your face evil, and too much of striving against it, lands me in a not so good place. I'm sure this is merely the result of not yet attaining to perfect faith, but such is the case. When depleted of positive life force, I find myself praying for a much needed boost often. This cycle of fight, recharge, fight, is something that I have grown accustomed to in my personal life, decades before I ever even heard of toxin induced Autism.
A Mother’s Day Reminder about Autism
Dr Bradstreet | May 8, 2011
This may be painful for many of you to read, but we all somehow have to find the courage to wake up our societies to the great harm befalling our children. Over the years I have been caring for children with autism I have grown in respect for the power of the Mother. We in the US see nearly 2% of our boys and one in 250 girls with autism, and we observe similar perhaps even worse rates of autism in the UK, Europe, Asia and throughout the remainder of the World.
