Hey RJ Reynolds, you AND your Vuse e-cig suck.

Update at the bottom.

I got coupons for a free Vuse e-cig and some cartridges –and being poor, and a vape’r and a lover of free shit thru couponing… I went and grabbed some today. Good timing because I was out of juice for my mod e-cig.
But then I came home and Googled the Vuse and found something very interesting… this article that tells us RJ Reynolds, the maker of Vuse, is lobbying to ban vaping. And I am sure you are not so dumb as to not figure out why. $$$$ –oh but not all vaping, their e-cigs will be just fine.

Now, in the past I had tried what I call “stick” e-cigs or what others call cigalikes, and found them hideously awful.  My complaint… they are “dry”. It’s like sucking air. If this is the only thing you’ve tried before and decided vaping isn’t for you –you need to try again with the mods and juices. When I was only using the Blu “stick” e-cig I smoked regular cigs right along with it. It wasn’t until I found tanks and adjustable batteries that I was able to give up the cancer sticks.

The difference was the flavor and vapor. By the way, to get to the point and the title of this blog… the Vuse is awful. It’s actually worse than Blu. It’s dry as hell. And the flavor of the ‘regular’ is… um… Nothing? It’s just really gross. I’ll be heading to my favorite Naples Vapor tomorrow for my Tahitian Peach!
The mods give you much more flavor and vapor and it most resembles smoking a cigarette.  Those ‘sticks’ just don’t even come close.
Too, vaping with juices and refillable tanks can by done for an avg of $20 a month if you were a pack a day smoker. That is what I pay. These “stick” e-cigs like Vuse are likely to run you $120 or more a month.

Thanks to mods and tanks and juices I quit smoking two years ago.
No, there are no long term studies on the effects of vaping on humans. But here is what I can tell you after 2 years… I have my senses of taste and smell back. I rarely get sick and I don’t cough up a lung every day. I *AM* healthier than I was. Might we find out later that they cause cancer? –Sure. Maybe.
But the FEW chemicals that are in the ecigs, pale in comparison to the over 4,000 in a cigarette. What I am choosing to do may not be safe –but it’s safer, much much much safer.

Also, the studies I saw in the past on vapor that tried to tell us all that vaping is BAD, found 1-2 chemicals in the FIRST HAND vapor. I, coming from vaccine unicorn land, always look to see who authored and paid for the study. Tobacco paid for the studies. Follow the money.

RJ Reynolds, quit fucking around. Stop pretending you care about the health of your customers.  ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?? YOU SELL CANCER. This is all about profit.

Sure, maybe someone can adulterate the juice –but any one can poison anything now, can’t they?  In my 4 years of vaping, with the past 2 being heavy usage I’ve never been sickened by the juice I buy.
(lol well… maybe today that will change as I sit here puffing on a foul tasting Vuse cartridge.)

Public comment to the FDA is closed now, but keep track of the ongoing battle at Free To Vape.

By the way… in a pinch… I have tried the FIN brand and they are NOT BAD. They are NOT GREAT. They are not as good as the mods, but they are the best of the sticks that I have tried.

One more final thought, a quote from a really dark, twisted, perverted, funny girl I know: “Sucking on one of these cigalikes is about as satisfying as I would imagine giving head to a vibrator is.”
–Yeah, OK… it was me.

[Update: Not even 24 hours later the cartridge is empty. It’s their “special” technology. So you can’t even puff on it if you want to, to get the last bit of goodness (um… crapness?) out of it. It shuts off whether you want it too or not. So yeah… this would easily run you $120 or more a month. Total fucking garbage.]

Autism. Agent Orange. Dioxins. MTHFR. Oh my.

werefuckedfrreal
I first wrote this blog a year ago and took it down from the old site to move here. I’ve updated and made some edits. It probably should be two separate blogs but… whatever. Take a coffee break in the middle.

Part 1.

Let me start with this: Autism is not one thing. Autism is the manifestation of cellular/organ damage.  It’s a list of symptoms (“features”) and if you have enough of them, you win the autism diagnosis.  Those “features” are the result of various injuries to the body.

This is the biggest stumbling block to helping the general population realize that vaccines can (and do) cause “autism”.  When you understand the individual “features”, or symptoms, of autism, then you can better understand the biological plausibility of vaccines causing “autism”.

Vaccines are known to cause various encephalopathies and those can cause the symptoms that land you the ASD diagnosis.
So vaccines cause autism.
If you refuse to see that, then you refuse to see that turning the ignition key in your car is what starts your engine just because in between the key turn and engine roaring, is a starter (I am sure there are more things but I have the girl-dumb when it comes to cars).

Now that that is out of the way…

Society has changed so much in the last 50-100 years.  Chemicals that never existed before are suddenly here. We introduced these things into the world without doing any long term studies. Well… the ‘studies’ are being done. On a mass scale. To all of us, without informed consent –just by existing in the world today.

One thing I read this morning is about the CDC f*cking up and around with Agent Orange claims.  One particular passage caught my eye as I was skimming:

“After the date of the congressional hearing with Admiral Zumwalt, Coleen Boyle was listed as part of a study that looked at the prevalence of Viet Nam veterans who had children with spina bifida called “The Embryo Study”.  The study showed that those men who had reported a higher exposure to Agent Orange had a higher than normal likelihood of fathering children with spina bifida.”

It caught my eye for many reasons –like the article points out, Coleen is one of the douchebags dicking around our children on the autism issue today. (My words of course 😉 2014 UPDATE: And now we know she perjured herself in front of congress thanks to the CDC Whistle Blower, William Thompson).

But… The other reason it caught my eye… I’ve been taking informal polls on this issue for a while now.  Those of us with autistic kids seem to have a disproportionate number of fathers who served in Vietnam or were in the area at the time, OR otherwise exposed to dioxins.
Agent Orange. Agent Orange contains Dioxins. Dioxins are known to damage DNA and result in birth defects to include developmental delay and neural tube defects.
Dioxin exposure is cumulative and never really leaves your body and the average person is already walking around at the “upper allowable limits” for a human.
Toxin exposure can alter DNA

Made me think of MTHFR mutations.
These are mutations that effect the methylation cycle in the body.
They are common in autism.

My son has Spina Bifida Occulta.  He and I both have Chiari Malformations where our brains are so freaking large they push out of our skulls.  😉  Yeah it’s like that!  –My son has mild Scoliosis too.
Chiari is a common theme in the the daughters of Vietnam vets.
Chiari and Scoliosis and Spina bifida (also common in kids and grand kids of Vietnam vets) are all neural tube issues –MTHFR can explain that.  Dioxins mutating the MTHFR genes, causing folate issues in the daughters of Vietnam vets can explain a LOT of this.
Visit Mthfr.net as a jump off for info on this.

ff

Thankfully, these conditions for my son are mild. At least I think the Chiari is mild. The symptoms can overlap with… wait for it… AUTISM! (Features of autism, remember!)

I spoke to a Chiari specialist (who is becoming an Autism/Chiari specialist).  He told me that while there are no official numbers, Chiari IS HIGHER IN THE AUTISM POPULATION vs. the general population. I wonder if it’s higher in the military veteran/family population.  Because that is my experience as well.
(And side note while I am at it, the number of moms who got the mercury laden versions of the Rhogam shot is MUCH higher in autism populations as well.)

I did the 23andme.com DNA test for myself and my boys… and let me tell you, we are a bunch of mutated MTHFRs. (Yeah, read that as Mother Fuckers, we all do, it’s OK). Gavin has a mild form of spina bifida because all the folic acid I consumed in my pregnancy was damn near USELESS.  My youngest didn’t suffer this because I was eating WHOLE foods containing lots of folate during my pregnancy with him. Folate my body can use. My body cannot break down folic acid into the folate form it needs.

Not only did my ASD child have a Vietnam vet Grandpa one my side, his paternal Grandfather was ALSO in Vietnam. Most of Gavin’s mutations are homozygous.  He got a dose of mess from me and from his dad.
My child was fucked. He didn’t have a chance once vaccines were injected into his body… with his altered DNA and messed up metabolic pathways and toxic load handed down by his mother. It was the perfect storm.

fucked

My youngest son has even worse mutations. Super glad I didn’t vaccinate him.

And NOW they want to start using Agent Orange again… on our crops.. Um… what?

The dioxin issue came into sharp focus in Australia last year, when investigative journalists found high levels of dioxin in supplies of 2,4-D (the same supplier that provides 2,4-D to American customers).

Petition here, for what’s it worth.

We are pummeled with toxins at every turn.

Features of autism?
Vaccines are one cause of systemic damage that causes the body to behave in patterns and ways that we identify as features of autism.
Petro chemicals and how they are processed into our plastics are one cause of systemic damage that causes the body to behave in patterns and ways that we identify as features of autism.
GMO’s are one cause of systemic damage that causes the body to behave in patterns and ways that we identify as features of autism.
Genetic disorders of mutations and deletions are one cause of systemic damage that causes the body to behave in patterns and ways that we identify as features of autism.

We will never be able to scientifically prove ONE cause by today’s standards. Never. But we need to stop this game of semantics and realize that way too many human offspring are being born with developmental malformations and genetic predispositions that need only the addition of an environmental trigger to mess them up for life.  And so much in our environment has changed to cause these problems.

To go back 50 years, we need to go back 50 years. We need to completely change our way of life.

Our species is on its way out, I can’t say it loudly or often enough.  If you are OK with that… Then keep on this path.  Buy 5 soft drinks a day in plastic bottles.  Eat poorly, the GMOs and processed foods and spend all your time sick and all your money on medicine that is shortening your life. Get your vaccines instead of just staying healthy and eating right. Enjoy all your electronic MUST HAVES –that not only pollute the environment by means of coal fired plants but with electro-smog as well. We are electrical creatures.  This IS affecting us. Use up all the oil. Bathe in the radioactive fall out.

Part 2… maybe? I think I was manic when I wrote this last year…

Let’s talk cumulative, generational damage…. shall we?
This looks like a poem:

I still remember being smart.
Being able to read something quickly, comprehend, synthesize, and apply.
After so many vaccines… so many…
Let’s not forget the times I volunteered to be injected with shit at WRAIR to get out of work early –they said it was allergy testing. Maybe it was. Maybe.
After all the mercury fillings…
Various work place chemical exposures…
I struggle.
I’ve paid almost $400 in fines this year because I don’t remember to inspect and register my car –so I keep getting pulled over.
I broke my new lawnmower in May when I got it. I’m going to call them soon to get it fixed. Soon.
My car needs repairs. I’m going to call the mechanic tomorrow to get it in. Tomorrow.
I’ve been going to order DNA tests for all of us to confirm my MTHFR suspicions for over a year. (Did it. I was right.)
My latex allergy reached epi-pen proportions 18 months ago. I finally called my doctor last month about that.
It’s not laziness. I can’t prioritize. I forget. Some days I just can’t handle the effort needed to make a phone call.
Sometimes I have to read shit 10 times and still don’t know what I’ve read…

–This damage is generational. It’s getting progressively worse. My parents generation did OK for the most part. My generation I see struggling.  Adult ADHD. Epilepsy. Tourettes. Auto-Immune Disorders. Chronic Inflammation.

I see a generation of Millennials who aren’t doing anything.  They didn’t go to college, a ton of them don’t drive. Some don’t work for no good reason…  Most of these kids were the first to get the harmful Hep B vaccine at birth, they’re the first offspring of humans brought up on processed foods, they ate GMOs in plentiful amounts. But I see that generation as the “in-betweeners” because not all of them got the Hep B and most did not get the amount of vaccines that kids get now.

But the next generation? Those born from the very late 80s onward… They get it all.  Altered DNA, Parental toxic load. GMO/Processed food extravaganza. A dose of Hep B vaccine as a “Welcome to this Cruel World” present, with 36 more vaccines by age 18 months. Fifty-one vaccines by Kindergarten.

I saw two generations above me work all their lives without issue. I saw one generation above me go a good 30-35 years before falling apart.  I put in a good 15 years before life unraveled for me. I know 20-somethings who held jobs for 5 years before their brains and bodies just couldn’t go back. My son will never work a day in his life.

I can’t imagine what the next generation looks like. What are we going to have 50 years from now? When I am 88 years old who will be taking care of all the ill, elderly and disabled when there are no healthy people left?

And now a picture of a cute kitten just to break up all this text and keep your attention. This is my cat, Brick, as a little fluff ball. Never had a vaccine. I am a rebel like that.
And now a picture of a cute kitten just to break up all this text and keep your attention. This is my cat, Brick, as a little fluff ball. Never had a vaccine. I am a rebel like that.

I was reading an article a month or so ago about Gen X vs. Millennials… I read a couple, so maybe in my head they are bleeding together. It had some good points. But one thing bothered me. The author basically said that we Gen X’ers need to put down our kitting and home soap making and canning and go out and lead the world. No statement in recent history brought on such feelings of ambivalence.  Part of me wants that very much… to go out there and shake you all by the shoulders and get you to listen.  Part of me thinks the world and species are too far gone.  I need to knit and garden and make my own soap… and teach my kids the basic homesteading and survival skills that they are going to need in a disastrous future –that is more near than you think.  Our civilization is collapsing.  Do I waste my time trying to convince you too?

Are we OK with damage control and trying to make sure our kids will lead happy and healthy lives? Pack it up and call it a day?
I very much want to have a conversation with my 9 year someday where I beg him to not have children.  Because his life will likely be OK on this planet.  But I don’t think the lives of my Grandchildren would be. Or is there more we can do.  Are there enough of us seeing the iceberg in time to steer away the ship?

‘Autism’ is the sum of all the parts.
Society is collapsing. The human extinction has begun.
Start here. Watch this. –Go pee first so you don’t piss your pants from fear. It’s the documentary “The Disappearing Male”, which I can’t share often enough.

Read this too, look at the photos. Think of Autism while you do. It’s a five part series on Agent Orange and Vietnam. To me, the photos of the affected kids… a lot of them have similar postures of  “autistic” kids. Also, read about the two daughters with Chiari.
[Update 2014: That article link doesn’t work anymore. I am leaving this in the blog as a reminder to myself –Going to dig around and try to find the story. It was an amazing story on the legacy of Agent Orange in Vietnam and back home.]

HPV Vaccine = Sterility?

This is an old story but I saw it pop up in my news feed recently and I wanted to have a little talk about Gardasil and sterility.

“The Japanese people are reporting side effects ranging from “long-term pain and numbness to infertility and paralysis.” In the wake of these complaints, the Japanese government has decided to withdraw its support for these widely pushed and controversial HPV inoculations.”

I started pondering the link between Gardasil and sterility when I saw this nugget back in 2012. U.S. Teen Pregnancy Rates at an all-time Low. Hm. What caught my eye was the percentage decrease in the teen birth rate over one years time. From 2009 to 2010 it dropped 9% overall. I saw a more recent article that showed a 10% from 2012 to 2013 as well.

From 2005 to 2007 it actually went UP. From 2007 to 2009 it went down 3%. From 2009 to 2010 it went down 9% and is declining fast and steady since.

It’s quite a steep drop compared to the overall slow decline that’s been happening since the 90’s.
[There was a steep decline in the 90’s  that leveled off to a slow decline in the early 2000’s. Which is probably part education, shifting attitudes and social roles –and partly… BPA and phthalates and other endocrine disruptors. Watch The Disappearing Male for a clue on that.]

As for the sudden sharp decline in 2010… Some of it may be that the Plan B pill was made available without a prescription for those 17 and older (15 year old girls have 17 year old friends) in 2009 but two things pop into mind on that issue. Most teen pregnancies are unplanned, by the time the teen knows she’s pregnant it is too late for Plan B. Also, I recall a coworker buying it, it was pricey at $50 a pop. No teen girl is popping that pill every time she’s having unprotected sex.

Also from this page, you can see the rate started to take it’s turn in 2008. Right when the HPV vaccines were being pushed. By the end of 2007, 25% of the target age group had had at least 1 of the 3 shot series. The steep decline begins when the shots began.
preg1

Seems to me that a study should be done. Let’s look at the girls having sex, the ones getting pregnant, the ones NOT getting pregnant –and their HPV vaccine status.

What are ‘the powers that be’ attributing the sudden sharp decline in teen pregnancies too? Well…. hold your hats!

Education programs. Condoms. And… the ECONOMY.
Try to not laugh when you read this from this page:
It says,

“Between 2005 and 2008, the teenage pregnancy rate decreased in 30 states and increased in 22 states. Then between 2008 and 2010, the teen pregnancy rate declined in all 50 states. Larger trends around fertility behaviors and economics, especially the recession in 2008, study authors wrote, may have played a larger role in the recent decline.”
prgrate

So let me get this straight… Jack and Diane are fooling around in the back of his car and Diane is begging for some sweet sweet loving… and Jack says, “Baby… with the recession… I just don’t think this is a good idea!” Yeah. That happened. *eye roll*

So let’s cast that stupidity aside.

Better education.
What did they do that was SO different in 2007/8 that suddenly made teens see the light? I have googled.  I can’t find anything life changing.

Contraception
Can anyone find me numbers that show a sudden uptick in purchase and use of contraception… because I can’t find those numbers either.

The vaccine manufacturers are the ones who study and report the safety and efficacy of their products to the FDA in hopes of buying… er… gaining approval.   Once approved they can never ever be sued for these products.

So, maybe Gardasil and Cervarix cause sterility. Maybe not. I think it calls for some real studies.  I think it’s cause to NOT vaccinate your daughters AND SONS with this vaccine –since the manufacturer hasn’t even bothered to study the vaccines affects on reproduction. NOT STUDIED.

Add in the deaths associated  with these vaccines?  Toys get recalled  after 2-3 deaths. Yet, Gardasil  has been implicated in over 100 deaths last time I looked. But it’s still out there.  After Merck made 3 billion off the girls they begin pushing it on boys.
Now they are pushing it on gay men and anyone with HIV/AIDS.
They are trying to kill you –while making a few more billion.

For a vaccine that isn’t even needed. Vaccines and mass vaccination programs ought to be analyzed on their benefits outweighing their risks.  That doesn’t happen in this country anymore.  Just like Hep B, HPV will clear on its own or not even go on to cause cancer in the vast majority of cases. –And I am not even getting into what is really causing cancer and how to avoid it, or cure it. Read this for starters.

There are a lot of experts out there saying this vaccine is safe and that the deaths aren’t related –but how can they make such bold statements when these perfectly healthy girls are suddenly dropping dead after their HPV vaccines and the autopsies are giving no answers.

You have to be smart enough to not fall for this bullshit.  Doctors are now allowed to give the shot to kids as young as 9. There is talk of moving the shot up to the routine childhood immunization schedule.  What will they say then when sudden infant deaths spike at that point? Coincidence…. again? After all, vaccines do appear to be the leading cause of coincidence in this country. I am sure they will figure out some new way to convince you there is no link.

MAL. Fucking. PRACTICE.

Are you going to believe the doctors who say it can’t be done, or listen the parents who’ve already done it?

When my son was diagnosed I was told that autism is a neurological disorder –a brain that is hard wired differently.  This gave me pause, as I had studied the brain enough to know that in YOUNG kids especially, a difference in “wiring” shouldn’t matter because the brain can figure out how to function even if it’s been a bit scrambled like a delicious egg! But, well, they are MD’s so they know what they are talking about, right? They have the latest training and I shouldn’t doubt them, right? They only want what is best for my child, right? *insert spit take*

I’ll never forget the crew at Children’s Hospital –his diagnosis at that point was a formality to get the “service” ball rolling. I already knew he was autistic. They hand you a packet that screams “plant a tree to replace me” full of papers for you to fill out ASKING for a medical history. I gave them a blow by blow –every ear infection, every fever near 106 degrees (indicative of poisoning, not so surprising that those fevers were at vaccination time, eh?) –everything.  They observed him for 5 minutes, did some “tests” and called me in to talk to me.

“We see all these things you included,” she then pats me on the head like a puppy and continues to speak to me as if I was 5 years old, “we just want you to know that while we do not know WHAT causes autism, we do know that it was nothing YOU DID.”

*insert icy glance from Moi* “No shit, THAT history is identical to the hundred other parents I have spoken to in the past six months since *I* diagnosed him.  Do YOUR job, figure it out.”  That was 1998 folks, I have died a million deaths from holding my breath.

For over a decade the PARENTS have been begging doctors to REALLY take a good hard look at the medical histories of our kids as a WHOLE (hint: they SCREAM of allergy, autoimmune, GI, toxic messes) and to look at the SUCCESSFUL treatments of our kids on a small, clinical basis. YES, what works for one kid will NOT work for all.  Remember secretin??? Do you think the Beck’s were lying?? Secretin WORKED for their kid!!!! Instead of condemning it and saying that the studies showed it did NOT work, why not try to figure out why it DID work for some!

By the way, Bernie Rimland looked at the studies that “they” said showed secretin as unsuccessful, and he said NOT SO! He said it depends on what you are looking for, and that many kids showed some improvement.

Bernie also loved to share the story of a mom who started to give her kid DMG. A couple days later she almost wrecked her car when the kid came off with a full sentence (first words) for the first time.  On DMG alone. (Hints of MTHFR mutations, right?)
Bernie was also onto something when he realized that B6 and Magnesium in high doses were helping kids with autism. (Glutamate, anyone? More MTHFR issues? Yep.)

Over the past decade the Defeat Autism Now! Protocol doctors have been trying to get to the bottom of these discoveries, and for the most part, they have.  While some details are still missing, we have learned that autism IS a metabolic disorder. My head is full of information about methylation cycles and methyl donor issues and glutathione issues and… shit I can’t keep it all strait unless I write it down.

The thing is, the information is out there.  And you will NOT get it from your doctor. Why?

That is the big question.  Some are just ignorant… they chose to believe that if there is something worth knowing that the AMA or AAP will pass that info on to them.  So how come that hasn’t happened yet?  Why are these medical groups, institutions and organizations REFUSING to listen to the parents? THAT is another million dollar question.

PARENTS.

Parents who have quit their jobs to focus on their kids.  Parents who have done MORE research and work than most Ph. D candidates will ever do. THEY mock us –and I *heart* Jenny McCarthy for coming out and talking about her MD from “Google”, but they mock us for that.  I find that very interesting –as if only those who PAY for an MD have the ability to LEARN. I can read you know.  I am capable of comprehension.  I have access to PubMed, too.

Parents… who have looked at autism as a metabolic disorder, added healthy supplements to their child’s diet AND took out gluten, casein, soy, corn, artificial colors & sweeteners & flavors, MSG, preservatives, beaver anus and dog vagina 😉 and WATCHED their kids RECOVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Parents.

Recovery.

Yep, you read that right. Some kids completely lose their “autism” diagnosis after a protocol for recovery that includes dietary changes, supplements and detox.

Well… your kid never really was sick.

Yeah.  The parents of autistic kids who HAVE RECOVERED are often hit with this one. “Your kid didn’t have autism, then”.  FUCK YOU CUNT. I have known these people.  I have watched their home movies.  Their kids were OBVIOUSLY autistic and NOW they are not.  Why are we not looking specifically at these cases?  Instead doctors STILL tell the parents of autistic kids that “that diet doesn’t work, don’t waste your money!”

Wasting money.

You know what I call a waste of money? Pop-tarts. Pepsi. MSG laden processed foods.  Please people, don’t tell me that “the diet” is too expensive.  Look at your most recent grocery receipt… how much did you spend on processed and packaged foods?  When you cut out chips and soda and Sunny D (just as bad as soda) you suddenly have ENOUGH to buy fresh produce and clean meat… that is ALL YOU NEED to start “the diet”. Start here. YES, expensive allergen free, prepackaged foods are out there.  They are terrific crutches if you DON’T HAVE BALLS.  I suggest you grow a pair, because the vast majority of that food SUCKS.  And if it doesn’t suck it’s because it has SOY or CORN or MSG or some other chemical in it.

The diet is not something so fucking special.  It is merely a healthy diet. It is how your grandparents ate for fucks sake!! And doctors are telling people to not even try it? Next time someone tells you that diet is no good, ask them WHY? And sit back and enjoy their ignorance. It is malpractice. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.  For a doctor to tell you that a healthy diet is a waste of time and money is either a flat out evil intent OR lack of knowledge –either way, it is malpractice. We ought to be suing these fuckers!

What’s that?? Your kid is picky?? He won’t eat it?? Neither would mine.  I took away milk first, within days he added chicken to his diet.  I do spend a little more than “grandma’s diet” when it comes to SOME things.  I do buy nut flours to “bread” chicken with. I do occasionally buy a coconut based ice cream. Yum.  I do buy ghee (clarified butter).  THAT is about it. Your kids will get hungry and eventually eat. My kids drink water and watered down juice. It’s not hard at all. It’s affordable.  Read Primal Tightwad for inspiration!

IF they admitted that diet helped…

Then they would have to admit autism was a metabolic disorder.
Perhaps more specifically a mitochondrial disorder.
Then they would have to admit that mito disorder’s like that of Hannah Poling wasn’t as rare as they were claiming it to be.

Remember Hannah?? Awarded MILLIONS because vaccines caused her autism vaccines resulted in her “autism-like” symptoms.
Even Cruella Deville admitted it here!! Oh and BY THE WAY… not long after this, Julie left the CDC and took a job as the PRESIDENT of MERCK’s Vaccine Division. Hmmmm. WHORE.

Food can’t cause a neurological disorder you say?? Have you heard of PKU? EVERY newborn in this country is screened for it.
Food can’t alter behavior?? Have you heard of Jameson?? 😉
DID you know that there are NEURONS IN YOUR GUT?? Of course not, because CBS news never told you thaaaaat!

Aw! Sheeple, Sheeple, Sheeple, FOR SHAME!

I ASK AGAIN, Are you going to believe the doctors who say it can’t be done, or listen the parents who’ve already done it?
After all, it is YOUR child’s future.  Wait for medicine to catch up, and end up putting your child in an institution when you are older and can no longer care for them… or fix them now.

We in the autism community live in a world of crazy contradictions!

“Well, maybe if a DOCTOR told me these things, I would buy it” / “Oh, a doctor did say those things? Well, He is a QUACK!”
“Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting on some of these findings?” / “Oh they did?? Well, those people are fringe wackos looking to make a buck!”
“Why isn’t a doctor with no ties to autism saying this stuff” / “Oh, he doesn’t?? Well!! Sure he does after all, he just said that stuff causes autism!”
“Why isn’t anyone respectable looking into this” / “Oh, RFK Jr. took up your cause, isn’t he that crazy environmentalist?”
“MY SCIENCE is PEER REVIEWED & PUBLISHED” / “Oh, yours too? Well yours is flawed!”

*sigh* really?
REALLY. It’s time to tune out the rubbish people.

I can see why a NEWBIE would be overwhelmed.  But we are not saying to let your kids shoot up heroin.  We are saying, clean up their diet.

I am still searching for what works for my son.  We finally did the 23andme DNA test and I can see now how messed up his methylation cycle is.  I can see why he reacted poorly to supplements that helped other kids. This test is a MUST DO!

I can say, without hesitation, that the diet did not HARM him one bit.
His OCD and aggression is less on a clean diet.  I can also testify for the thousands of kids getting better BECAUSE their PARENTS listened to the other PARENTS, not their doctors!

Want more? Start here, then google til your heart’s content!

–and, Thanks Bernie! *love*

Pardon me, Sir… but could you pull your dick out of that cheeseburger and just listen for a minute???

What is it about food??  Why is it such an untouchable obsession??

Here is a very short look at the “diet thing” for those of you not familiar with the whole autism/diet issue.  Some proteins in some foods leak out of the gut, cross the blood brain barrier and wreak havoc in the brain.  Some substances are known as excitotoxins and are killing brain cells –wreaking havoc causing everything from autism to seizures to migraines… to… well… everything.  Artificial dyes are causing hyperactivity and are also petroleum based carcinogens… And there is more, lots more!! Some food issues are specific to those with metabolic disorders such as autism, but some –like the artificial colors and MSG and various other poisons in “processed foods” affect everyone. Some are straight up allergies, some are ‘intolerances’ that can still make you sick and affect behavior.
AND THIS SHIT IS IN YOUR FOOD!

Let’s face it, Americans eat TOXIC WASTE
But we don’t *just* eat TOXIC WASTE… we love it… DEFEND IT…. We defend it like we’re fucking it every Friday night and occasionally on Tuesdays….  We defend it like an abusive husband.  “Oh… Red Dye #40 didn’t MEAN to make my kid cut herself, he really does love her you know?”

Most people cannot even comprehend that food is the problem, they don’t even make the connection –they’re not even trying to think about it.  I bring it up and am met with glazed over faces.
Some have an idea that food is the issue, but get angry at the thought of it and take up a “don’t fuck with my food” attitude.

Recently someone said to me, “Humans are adaptable, we can eat anything!”  –really, you think so?  Look around –the leading causes of death all stem from the shit we shove in our pie holes!

I know of small children that have ADHD, ADD, ODD, Bi-fucking-polar, borderline personality disorder –and various other bull shit diagnoses… Their parents are too quick to accept the alphabet soup Dx and push the ineffective, harmful, black-box-warning having PILLS down their kid’s throats –but not proper nutrition!!

I guess It’s EASIER to shove pills down a throat than broccoli.

They say, “What?! Where is the proof that changing my child’s diet will work! Besides, my kid only eats pop-tarts he is STUBBORN! He’ll starve to death!” OMG. Be a fucking parent!

AND FUCK ME.  Want proof… use your brain. Think.  Think back to cellular biology. Ponder the cell.  It’s thrilling, right?  Picture it working perfectly with perfect nutrition… now… just add toxic waste. BAM! Want more proof? Watch how a couple shots of tequila transform me into a girl who will dance on pool tables. What we toss down our throats affects behavior. This isn’t a novel concept.

When we suggest to these families –those with auto-immune, behavioral and neurological disorders, that they change their diet we don’t even get the polite head nods to trick us into thinking they are listening…. no… we are often shut out, have BS “science” thrown back at us and are told that it’s too hard. (Too hard? To eat real food? SMDH.)

A decade ago those of us who we’re doing the “autism diet” were looked at as mean, crazy, perhaps even abusive –for putting our kids on such a “restrictive diet that doesn’t work”.  Restrictive???? Let’s see… my son used to only eat McDonald’s french fries and gummy bears and diet soda and soy milk. When I took those things away he started to enjoy plain water and he loves chicken salads.  Yeah. Real FUCKING abusive and restrictive!

WHAT DOCTOR out there can say the first diet was better than the ‘restrictive’ diet I put my child on and NOT expect me to throat punch them?

ASSHATS.

Chewable Cholesterol meds for tots!!!!!! GASTRIC FUCKING BYPASS SURGERY FOR CHILDREN.
“Sorry Tommy, you’ll never be able to eat like a human being again because mommy can’t bear to be A PARENT and take away your sugar-coated, ultra-blue, deep-fried CRACK COCAINE!

FUCK ME AGAIN.

Shit, it isn’t easy. Kids like that crack for a reason! We are at war in this house as the last of the “bad food” finds it’s way cooked, consumed and never to be replaced.  The kids were ready to call 911 the other night when I wouldn’t dismiss them from the table until they ate some rice and carrots.  I’m such a bitch.

I have chronic inflammation, the beginnings of RA, daily/hourly/minutely myoclonic seizures. A clean diet is necessary for our well being and survival.  My kids have their issues as well. Why would I NOT try diet? You really really are what you eat!

You know.. I KIND OF get it –when I think about giving up my bitchin’ Lasagna I get all mad and wonder “WHY ME!!!”    –after all, we were engaged to be married!!!
[Update… I now have a great paleo way to make my bitchin’ lasagna. The engagement is back on! 😉 I will share it soon]

BUT TELL ME WHY?
Why do people simply SHUT DOWN when we suggest that they need to clean up their food source?
Why do they “not believe in that sot of thing”, as I was once told.
I DO NOT get why people are so blind to it that they won’t even consider a diet change to SAVE THEIR lives or their kids lives or their sanity!

For those of you who are ready to defend your Standard American Diet, please do.  I want to hear why you won’t even consider that our lifestyle of processed foods is bad for us. Help me understand.
And, for the choir I am preaching too… WHAT is the DUMBEST thing anyone has ever said to you about your child’s special diet?
