AutismOne: The Cutting-Edge Autism Conference Announces One in Two Advocacy Debut in Chicago

Advocacy organizations including AutismOne and the Brighton Institute collaborate to protect our children and our future

Today, more than ONE IN TWO children suffers from chronic illness. With vaccines as a forerunner, experts know what the primary triggers are for autism, birth defects, infertility, gut disorders, cancer, and other chronic illnesses, and yet triggers continue. We have the power to create positive change. The ONE IN TWO movement is committed to educating and inspiring millions of parents and future parents to transform their health and to protect and restore the health of their children.

Today, you can turn things around for the better. Today, you can change history. Need the tools? Join us in Chicago on May 21, where we invite you to become part of the solution at the Intercontinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL. In this initial launch event, we will give you the tools to become a changemaker and to inspire others to do the same.

On May 21, let’s rise together to say “enough is enough,” to identify solutions, to inspire activism, and to chart an organized course of action that sends ripples around the world and through generations to come. Years from now, your children and grandchildren will thank you for doing whatever it takes to be there on May 21 in Chicago, remembering how you and your family took a stand for their future.

Meal planning and shopping made simple: great apps that help you organize your menu, with helpful tips for organizing recipes.

How to organize a kitchen that cuts your work time (not your fingers) in half: learn about kitchen tools you can’t be without and which ones are not worth the space or money.

Knife and cutting techniques: Chef Tyler demonstrates the proper way to hold and use a knife, which ones to purchase, and how to keep them sharp.

Kitchen tricks that will dazzle and delight you: learn the shortcuts taught in culinary school! Cinch the budget, but stretch the meals: learn how to create many meals from a few simple affordable ingredients.

Parsley, sage, rosemary and TIME: spices and herbs – when and how to use them.

Be sweet: how to decrease sugar and bring in natural options.

Tami Duncan

In this presentation Tami will cover the basics of Lyme disease, testing/diagnoses, treatments options and how it plays a role in the entire picture of Autism. In addition she will discuss the things from a mind, body, and spiritual healing perspective which may go unnoticed but be a key element to full healing. Whether your child has Lyme as part of the picture or not this presentation will give you insights into different aspects which may be hindering the healing process. Once these underlying causes are uncovered Tami will give you strategies from a Vibrational Healing perspective to balance these things in your child and your family.

Claire Dwoskin

Scientific research on vaccines has been limited by a narrowness of approach. The current model of government and industry-sponsored research utilizes research methods that sanction the use of active placebos and active controls, which may be masking background levels of adverse reactions. Subjects are followed for short time frames in relation to the biological activity and reactivity of the components, preparations and combinations under review. Passive surveillance is inadequate to assess both short and long term health consequences at the population level due to under reporting and lack of scientific certainty of the relationship between the vaccines and health effects. Government sponsored safety monitoring research is primarily epidemiological. Bench science is required to examine the biological, molecular, genetic, and physiological impacts.

The assumptions that are made about vaccine manufacturing processes, ingredients, and testing help to ensure an outcome that is easy to control or influence. Adjuvants and preservatives have been presumed safe. The risk that culture mediums pose minimal risk of foreign protein and DNA contamination has been ignored, despite the tragic contamination of the polio vaccine with SV40 and the discovery of recent retroviral DNA contamination in some vaccines. In addition, vaccines contain a complex array of untested additives and ingredients that have never been proven safe to inject, nor do we know the cumulative and synergistic impacts of vaccine combinations and multiple exposures. Studies with narrow sets of objectives may be more likely to result in vaccines reaching the marketplace.

Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute and the Dwoskin Family Foundation is funding research into biological and genetic effects after vaccination, and establishing mechanisms of action, with a current focus on aluminum adjuvants and vaccines that contain aluminum. Evidence is mounting that vaccines contain harmful immune and neurotoxins that can cumulatively and synergistically harm the health and development of infants and children. An overview of published research and research in progress will be discussed, as well as ongoing education and outreach efforts of the foundations.

Biography
Claire Dwoskin is a child health advocate, philanthropist and leader of an international effort to address the increasing incidence of chronic illness and disability, including autoimmunity, and age-related neurological diseases. The Dwoskin Family Foundation supports research in the area of adjuvant-induced autoimmune diseases. Ms. Dwoskin is the founder of Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute, a medical and scientific collaborative established to provide research funding for independent methodologically sound controlled scientific research on vaccines and their ingredients. Prominent peer-reviewed journals including Annals of Medicine, Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, Lupus, Autoimmunity, and Vaccine have published research and articles funded by her foundation. She is an active volunteer board member of the National Vaccine Information Center. She is the co-founder of the Vaccine Safety Conference, which was organized in part to address the acknowledged significant increases in autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases in children and adults. She co-chaired the 2nd International Symposium on Vaccines at the 8th International Autoimmunity Congress in Granada, Spain. Her family foundation provided seed funding and guidance for the 2011 award-winning documentary The Greater Good.

Mayer Eisenstein

All vaccine programs carry risk and questionable benefit. Therefore, the goal should not only be the prevention of a specific disease by vaccination, but also the benefits must outweigh any potential long term negative side effects.

In spite of the evidence disputing the benefits of vaccines and mandated vaccine programs hospitals, schools and state legislators around the nation have been implementing vaccine mandates for employees, under threat of termination from work and students with expulsion from schools. Dr. Eisenstein will explain the different legal vaccine waivers and how you can write a legal vaccine waiver.
