The Silence of the Media Lambs!

Autism and Child Protection
Why are the media in Britain ignoring the biggest public health scandal of the Century? Is it governmental suppression?
There is a pandemic of autism among children in the western world and it is spreading worldwide. Thousands upon thousands of children are being diagnosed as autistic every day in the U.S.A., the U.K., and increasingly in Australia. A few decades ago the incidence of autism affected only one child in a thousand but now it is more than one child in a hundred.
Autism has massive long term medical, social, educational, and financial effects on families and every day is a exhausting struggle for the families of autistic children as they try to cope with emotional and behavioral disorders of these autistic children. Many are devastated and collapse completely while others struggle on with increasing ill-health among parents and the damaging effects on any other children in the family as their needs have to come secondary to the needs and demands of the autistic child. And there is little or no help from statutory authorities for the autistic child or the family. They are largely left to cope alone or with minimal input from governmental departments and health services. Many parents tell of applying for help from statutory agencies but which require an assessment of the child’s needs and the families support requirements, only to be met by words such as, “Well I can do an assessment but we have no resources to help you!” from the social work, educational. and health professionals conducting the assessment.
For some children and their families the horrors have been increased multi-fold by child protection workers accusing parents of causing the child harm (largely because many child protection workers do not have knowledge or understanding autism and its tapestry of symptoms and behaviours) and by doctors accusing parents of `causing’ the autism using a discredited junk theory titled Fabricated and Induced Illness in Children, previously know as Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy.
But the first most important question to be asked is, “Why has this pandemic occurred over the last four decades?” and the answer is simple yet infinitely complex. It has been caused by vaccinations of various kinds, but principally the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccine. [MMR].
This has been known to the pharmaceutical industry, the Western governments, and to the health and medical professions for decades but they have mounted one of the most slick and collusive denials and distractive tactics ever known. Winston Churchill the British Prime Minister mounted one of the biggest deception campaigns ever know when he sought to deceive the German military regarding the intended place of the D-Day landings in France but even he would have paid homage to the campaign of deception and misinformation mounted by governments and health services to cover up this immense human tragedy of autism. The most recent tactic has been to engage medical professionals and journalists with questionable credentials and reputations to pursue a process of misinformation for media consumption and to produce `Junk’ science reports that vaccines are safe and have no links to autism..
Initially the British and US, governments sought to deny the existence of autism as a neurological disorder and pretended it was merely a form of `mental handicap’ or `retardation’. Of course this did not work for long, so the next step was to accept its existence but claim that it was being wrongly or overly diagnosed. So many autistic children went undiagnosed and they and their families were deprived of any help or support which may have been available.
This approach also began to fail as families increasingly pointed to the fact that their child’s autism had been caused by vaccines. The testamentary evidence of parents regarding the changes in their child’s demeanour and behaviour after receiving a vaccine is immense and worldwide. Typical evidence from a parent would usually read as follows:
“Within days or hours of receiving the vaccine, the child developed a fever of 102.3 degrees and was lethargic, irritable, and cried for long periods of time. She exhibited intermittent, high-pitched screaming and a decreased response to stimuli. This behaviour continued over the next ten days, and the child also began to arch her back when she cried. The paediatrician, told the mother that the child was having a normal reaction to her immunizations. A few days later the child was taken to hospital with a 101-102 degree temperature, a diminished appetite, and small red dots on her chest. The nurse practitioner recorded that child was extremely irritable and inconsolable. She was diagnosed with a post-varicella vaccination rash. Thereafter the child lapsed into her own world, oblivious to any stimulation around her and unaware of anyone else.”
The tactics of the government and medical professionals are now to persecute any
professional who dares to challenge the propaganda of the health departments and
three doctors who raised questions regarding the administration of vaccines and
possible inks to autism are currently facing professional misconduct charges at
the General Medical Council in London. Other professionals such as the
Consultant Psychologist Lisa Blakemore-Brown an internationally-known expert in
autistic disorders, has also faced similar charges from her professional
association after being outspoken about the links between vaccines and autism.
The evidence that vaccines cause autism is now clear, and convincing and irrefutable. And possibly that there are links to other illnesses such as asthma, allergies, diabetes, Crohn’s Disease and probably a range of other illnesses which are on the increase, It has been admitted in Court Proceedings in America by government medical experts and the cat is finally out of the bag. (See below).
The final question is, why has the cover-up gone on so long?. Simple, there are vast amounts of money involved for the pharmaceutical industry, governments have been led to believe (erroneously) that there is a need for `herd’ immunity against these diseases yet the latest evidence shows that it is the children who have been vaccinated who are most often contracting these diseases and children who have normally developed immune systems and a nutritious diet can effectively resist these diseases without the aid of vaccines. The medical profession have also had a bonanza in the monies they have received for administering vaccines and for research projects and consultancies. Some medical professionals are shareholders in drug companies or receive gifts of extended holidays at conference venues.
So why are the media so silent?
