National Autism Spectrum Disorder Surveillance System (NASS)
The National Autism Spectrum Disorder Surveillance System (NASS) just released it first report ever: Autism Spectrum Disorder Amoung Children and Youth in Canada 2018. This surveillance report is “Made in Canada” and provides a first reporting of national data and information to improve our understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Canada. It is based on data collected in 2015.
NASS compiles administrative data from the health, education and social services sectors for children and youth (aged 5-17 years) who have a confirmed ASD diagnosis.
Overall incidence rate of autism was one in 68 children, with the age group of 1-4 having grown the most. The report found that boys were 4.1 times more likely to be affected as girls.
Seven of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories provided information for 2015, including six provinces (British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec) and one territory (Yukon). As the figure below shows, ASD prevalence in 2015 varied among the seven regions, with the highest prevalence noted in the three provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador (1 in 57), Prince Edward Island (1 in 59) and Quebec (1 in 65). In comparison, prevalence was substantially lower in the Yukon territory (1 in 125).

Critical analysis of reference studies on the toxicokinetics of aluminum-based adjuvants
ROCKVILLE, Maryland — While you were (hopefully) enjoying the winter holidays, a study was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (it went online on December 27th) that could change the autism debate permanently.
In fact, this new study placed the burden of proof for the safety of aluminum adjuvants used in vaccines so squarely on the shoulders of a lone FDA scientist — Dr. Robert J. Mitkus — that he alone could permanently change the outcome of the autism debate. Forever.
Studies Suggest Vaccinated Children Are at Greater Risk of Serious Illness and Neurological Disorders
Where are the Studies of Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated Children?
For many years, parents and professionals have been questioning whether or not any studies have been conducted comparing vaccinated children to unvaccinated children.
In fact, Congressman Posey put this very question to Ms. Coleen Doyle from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2012. As expected, Ms. Doyle made several attempts to avoid Mr. Posey’s question before finally being forced to admit that the CDC had not carried out such a study.

Inconsolable Screaming Every Night after Vaccination
The other day I saw a beautiful family with a 4-year old boy diagnosed with autism who started screaming inconsolably every night for hours starting two days after receiving his 12-months shots. These included the standard assortment of assaults on the developing nervous and immune system: The MMR and chickenpox vaccines, one in each little arm and the meningococcal and pneumococcal shots, one for each little leg.
The parents took him back to the doctor who fluffed them off by saying that it was nothing, the baby just had night terrors. The screaming continued unabated and in short order the little one stopped making eye contact, stopped vocalizing and developed digestive problems. So-called autism.
Of course this was never reported as a vaccine-injury, heaven forbid, those things simply don't exist in the brainwashed minds of most doctors.
Moreover: "No one can say how many of the one to four million Americans and millions more globally suffering from serious chronic fatigue are actually suffering from aluminum poisoning. No one can say how many of the current 50 million cases of autoimmune disease in America are a long-term fallout from shots taken years ago."

Anorexia, Anxiety and OCD After Vaccinations
A study published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychiatry on January 19, 2017, and conducted by researchers from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and the Yale Study Centre at the Yale University School of Medicine has discovered some preliminary, but disturbing findings that could show a connection between recent vaccination and the development of a number of neuropsychiatric disorders in children and adolescents. You can read the study here.
In particular, the study found a possible association between vaccination and the development of anorexia nervosa (AN), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorder (AD) and chronic tic disorder in a subgroup of vulnerable individuals.

CEASE Therapy, an Integrated Treatment Protocol
In April of 2013 I received a call from Janice, the mother of one of my little autistic patients: "Owen's eye contact has gone from one second to several minutes at times! I’m actually almost a bit uncomfortable with the intensity of his gaze now." Not only that, but he learned to use the word ‘no’ and was trying to say other words, all major improvements after only eight weeks of treatment with CEASE Therapy, a new integrated treatment protocol designed to address the multiple, underlying causes of autism.
Owen, an adorable three-and-a-half-year-old boy, was born healthy and strong but started to show changes in his health after intensive IV and oral antibiotic therapy at only nine weeks old. Signs of regression were noted by about 16 months, preceded by intensive dental treatments with conscious sedation and more antibiotics. He began toe-walking, started banging his head on the floor when angry and lost the eight to ten words he already had one by one until he couldn’t even say ‘uh-oh’ anymore. A sadly familiar story for many parents of children diagnosed with autism.
