Autism Increased 30% in Just Two Years: Now It’s 1 in 68

According to new government figures just released today, autism in the U.S. has increased by a whopping 30% in just two years. The new estimate is that one in every 68 kids in America falls somewhere on the autism spectrum now.

Health officials claim that this is not because more kids are autistic these days, but that it is recognized more even in kids with fewer symptoms:

Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with doctors diagnosing autism more frequently, especially in children with milder problems.

While that may account for the increase over the last two years, can that explanation really account for the overall autism increase trending over the last two decades?

The prevalence rate for autism before 1990 was only three children per 10,000. When the CDC began surveillance of the study population above in 2000, figures clocked in at one child in every 150. Since then, autism diagnoses have been steadily increasing each year.

One trend that has remained the same is the five times higher prevalence of autism in boys, at one in every 42, over girls, at one in every 189.

Some have pointed to a wealth of studies that show possible correlation and causation of the continued rise in autism to the continued increase in vaccines. The U.S. currently has the most aggressive vaccination schedule of any country on the planet. New vaccinations have been steadily added to the average American child’s vaccine schedule each decade for several decades now:

In the early 1950s, there were four vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and smallpox. Because three of these vaccines were combined into a single shot (DTP), children received five shots by the time they were 2 years old and not more than one shot at a single visit.

By the mid-1980s, there were seven vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella and polio. Because six of these vaccines were combined into two shots (DTP and MMR), and one, the polio vaccine, was given by mouth, children still received five shots by the time they were 2 years old and not more than one shot at a single visit.

Since the mid-1980s, many vaccines have been added to the schedule. Now, children could receive as many as 24 shots by 2 years of age and five shots in a single visit.

Vaccines contain a vast array of potentially dangerous ingredients, including antibiotics, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), bovine fetal tissue, polysorbate and heavy metals like aluminum and the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal. When these are shot into the bloodstream, they bypass the majority of the body’s natural immune system which resides in the gut.

A new study recently released by Scientists from the University of California has put forth evidence that autism actually begins in utero during pregnancy and it not the result of a child’s environmental and social factors (such as childhood vaccines):

“Building a baby’s brain during pregnancy involves creating a cortex that contains six layers,” said Eric Courchesne, neurosciences professor and director of the Autism Center of Excellence at UCSD, in a statement. “We discovered focal patches of disrupted development of these cortical layers in the majority of children with autism.”

While many media outlets are saying this proves conclusively that vaccinations aren’t causing autism (the story quoted above was titled, “Autism Awareness: Disorder Begins Before Brain Is Fully Developed, Making Risks From Vaccinations Impossible”), that’s more media spin than reality.

In fact, this particular story goes on to contradict its own title.

As the story itself says:

But these trends aren’t reflected in other parts of the world. Asia, Europe, and other parts of North America display far lower prevalence rates, sometimes as low as one percent, which presents U.S. researchers with a curious challenge. There are no blood tests to diagnose autism, and behavioral observation is by nature imperfect. Some say we over-diagnose, especially on the higher-functioning end. Some say America’s obsession with vaccinations is to blame. So the question remains: How do stop something if we don’t fully know what it is?

And then:

This doesn’t rule out maternal exposure during gestation or earlier, but it does go a long way toward quieting many of today’s critics. [emphasis added]

Did you catch that?

Pregnant mothers are consistently told they need to get all kinds of vaccines in the U.S., including flu shots, one of the vaccines known to still contain thimerosal. How can something be “impossible” if it hasn’t entirely been ruled out?

The debate, then, rages on.

    I can’t help but think that pharmaceutical company profits have something to do with this.

  • rybo1

    Could it be that there’s a greater awareness and proper diagnosis of Autism than in the past?

    • oldranger68

      As a nurse of over 40 years I ask, you’re kidding, right?

  • petercrissgirl1972

    Increased chemtrail activity, increased use of GMO’s in foods and increases in how many vaccinations, perhaps.

  • Anothereno

    Gmo’s aren’t inherently bad when lets say are used to increase yields by making them drought resistant the major problem is the plants are being genetically modified to be resistant to pesticides/herbicides like Glyphosate.

    Not defending GMO’s Avoid when possible buts damn near impossible in Canada unless you know the farmers.

    Why isn’t the explosive growth of autistic children a national security issue? How exactly are We, as a nation, going to be able to fight off invaders or terrorists with a nation of autistic adults? 1 in 68 births? Lord help us.

  • Chris Sky

    Keep vaccinating your children sheep… Autistic children will not reproduce, and eventually all the indoctrinated fools who buy Big Pharma snake oil will be “weeded out” of the general population, and then maybe humanity can get some of it’s HEALTH back.

    Bonjour Marquis. Comment allez vous?
    Not referring to my Late Great Uncle ‘Sam are we now? LOL
    I joked about the Uncle stuff but please put yourself in Bin Laden’s shoes for a second. You would want to fly the frigging plane into the Statue of Liberty wouldn’t you? Not some useless expensive to maintain eyesores in Manhattan that were going to come down anyway because they were full of asbestos and the cost of dealing with this and modernising the buildings was prohibitive compared to building many a newer property the tennants would love.
    Also, if anyone was anti Zionist as oppose to anti America surely the attack would be directed towards Israel.
    Some things will perhaps never add up, sorry.
    So help me God.

    Vaccinations aside and not linked, Authorities are just getting more ready to quickly ‘pigeon hole’ the patient and give the one size fits all treatment due to a genuine lack of resource (and funds) to really look into the issues.
    The main insults of Gay, Muslim and Not taken his meds today paled by comparison to a girl who was convinced I was autistic because she had an autistic brother just like me. Do I just look like him, sound like him, have similar views on controversial issues?
    I guess just like Syndrome X, google it, we have a ‘trendy disease’ LOL.
    Sometimes the diagnosis can do more harm than the virus.
    So help me God.

    It is done because the NWO wants to take the US down.

  • Jude O’Connor

    I think vaccinations are part of the cause. Flu, Shingles or what have you. The youngsters get a whole bunch.

  • MediaMentions

    One possibility that isn’t getting enough attention is overdiagnosis. Autism isn’t a black and white condition: it’s a spectrum, so kind of like the case with ADHD, there may be a grey area here as well. From what I read in the press today, only one article brings up this argument: http://www.pressreader.com/bookmark/HBRCHVPQ78V/TextView and I think it’s one that’s worth a look.

    There’s no link between the two, only discredited science. Autism isn’t increasing. Either they’re better at detecting it or there are government grants for every child considered to be autistic.
