Metals, Myelin and Mitochondria - Several Paths to Autism? by David Kirby

On August 31, 2009, 11:55 am

Author and writer David Kirby will discuss new biological science that has emerged since the beginning of 2008. Kirby believes there are different paths to the same constellation of symptoms that we label "autism spectrum disorders" based on different combinations of genetic factors and environmental triggers. Three such triggers under study today are heavy metals, live viruses and immune overstimulation - all of which occur in nature but also happen to be associated with vaccination. This will be a look at how heavy metals can cause brain damage, how live viruses can attack myelin (nerve coatings) and how overstimulation of the immune system in children with mitochondrial disorders can cause autistic regression.

David Kirby is author of the critically acclaimed book "Evidence of Harm, Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic - A Medical Controversy" (St. Martin's Press - 2005), which debuted at number 27 on The New York Times bestseller list and is still widely read today. Kirby has appeared on such venues as Meet the Press, Larry King Live, The Today Show, Imus in the Morning, CNN Headline News Prime, Montel Williams, Air America, and dozens of local radio and television stations. Kirby, a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, has been a professional journalist for over 15 years, including extensive contributions to The New York Times. He was a foreign correspondent in Mexico and Central America from 1986-1990. Kirby has also worked in politics, medical research, and public relations.

David Kirby video

Excellent! This video is basically about my son, what we have discovered to be true, and what we are working on to "fix" with our DAN! doctor. Thank you for posting this as it explains these issues in laymen terms that can be easily understood by everyone. Kirby does a great job asking the important questions!
