Wanna choose sides in the latest autism war?
One side says the mother’s lack of Vitamin D during pregnancy causes autism, while the other side says it’s the glutamate that’s in the many immunization shots babies and young children receive.
Let’s take a look-see.
Autism comes from brain inflammation. Mothers noticed a link with immunizations. Since mercury, a known brain inflammatory, came in each shot, a campaign to get rid of mercury raged–and won.
Well, not really, but that’s the word on the street. At least there’s less of it.
But the incidence of autism continues its rapid growth.
Aluminum is part of immunizations, too. And it’s part of the brain inflammation problem, too. It’s harder to remove than mercury, though, because it’s part and parcel of the immunization’s function, not just, like mercury, an additive that helps with delivery. Aluminum is bad news.
And aluminum still isn’t the whole story. Glutamate, a known brain poison, is part of every immunization. A big time participant in the brain inflammation game, glutamate is part of the delivery mechanism, not the function, of immunizations. Removal won’t change the efficacy (another BIG subject for another day) of the immunization. Even so, removal poses a technical challenge, and denial runs high.
I’m guessing the medical community will line up on the blame-the-mother side. Not that they check Vitamin D levels during pregnancy, but blaming the mother is a time-honored tradition. Besides, that leaves them off the hook of having to justify all the immunizations–not to mention their component parts.
They have a good thing going.
We need to create some noise about the 500-pound gorilla most people don’t hear about. Glutamate is an excitotoxin, meaning it revs up the brain to toxic levels, and the resulting brain inflammation damages the hypothalamus. Babies are particularly susceptible; glutamate can irreversibly ravage a young hypothalamus.
And what does the hypothalamus do that makes this such a big deal? The hypothalamus controls both the endocrine system and the nervous system–i.e. pretty much everything that goes on in our bodies; this is no small matter.
Demand (not request, suggest or pretty please) some serious attention to the glutamate in immunizations, flu shots, tetanus shots, etc. It inflames adult brains, too, you know. (Did I mention flu shots catapult your risk of dementia?)
Also, insist that medicine prove, with scientific studies not biased toward the immunization model, the medical necessity of so many immunizations given in such rapid succession to vulnerable babies. They can’t prove any such thing, of course, and people deserve to know the truth.
Finally, overwhelm Congress with demands that they follow science, not politics, in their edicts. I know that sounds like yelling at a brick wall, but if we don’t fight for our children, who will?
“Just what the doctor ordered” can mean your children never reach their inborn potential.
A drunk driver damaged Bette Dowdell's pituitary gland shortly before her first birthday. Although doctors insisted for years that she was fine, her health drifted to a crash-and-burn event, and she realized her health was up to her.
Now she's happy to report she has energy all day, every day. She sleeps well. Colds, flu and headaches are all in the past. Optimism moved back in. Life is good.
Now Bette's sharing what she knows with others to help them take control of their health, too. People who become their own health advocate enjoy far better health than those that don't.
Bette grew up in The Salvation Army, where her parents were officers. Like the military, this Army life involved a lot of moving, and she attended ten schools, in nine cities, in three states before graduating from high school.
After college, Bette worked as an IBM Systems engineer, a small-company consultant and software company owner. She wrote the books How to be a Christian Without Being Annoying, On We March: A memoir of growing up in The Salvation Army and the e-book Pep For The Pooped: Discovering the Vitamins and Minerals Your Body Is Starving For.
She lives in the Phoenix area.
