Researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) have released a study that finds genetic deletions are causing the advent of autism.
Funding for this study was provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The study states that conclusions “suggest that these deletions may increase the risk of developing autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder marked by difficulties in social interactions and communications.
Joseph Buxbaum, professor of psychiatry, genetics and genomic sciences and neuroscience at MSSM, said: “This is the first finding that small deletions impacting one or two genes appear to be common in autism, and that these deletions contribute to risk of development of the disorder.”
Over 900 participants allowed their genetic code to be analyzed with 431 being identified as having autism and 379 persons being part of the control group.
An estimated 803 gene deletions were identified within the autism group and 583 in the control group.
Based on the findings, the study states that “people with autism were more likely to have multiple gene deletions.”
However, it was noted that genetic inheritance is not necessarily the originator of these genetic deletions.
Buxbaum explained: “It is now known that imperfect gene copy number is one of the major sources of variability between people. One of the reasons we are different from each other is because of gene additions or deletions which are often inherited. But of the extra deletions we see in [autism], not all are due to genetic inheritance. Some occur during the development of the egg or sperm, and deletions that develop in this way tend to be associated with the disorder.”
Buxbaum said: “There is a good reason to believe that autophagy is really important for brain development because the brain produces many more synapses than it needs, and the excess needs to be pruned back. Too many, or too few, synapses have the same effect of not making communication work very well. It could mean that some synaptic connections come in too late and may not solidify properly.”
Furtherance of the findings will be facilitated by the Autism Sequencing Consortium (ASC).
The ASC is tasked with “understanding of the genetic architecture of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), with gene discovery accelerating as the characterization of genomic variation has become increasingly comprehensive.”
Late last year, a study was published citing pregnant women who suffer from flu or a fever lasting more than 7 days were more likely to give birth to children who developed an autistic disorder.
The study asserts that children of mothers who had two or more instances of flu had a doubled-risk of being diagnosed with autism prior to the age of 3; as well as simply having a fever.
Also attributed to the development of autism in children were the uses of a pharmaceutical grade anti-biotic during pregnancy.
This study gives governmental agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) an excuse to disregard scientific data correlating autism to the use of mercury-based preservatives like Thimerosal to the onset of autism.
There were no differentiation between the wide range of possible infections that a pregnant woman could contract, nor the pharmacological drugs that would be prescribed to the pregnant woman by her doctor; yet there is an association between the contraction of flu and development of infantile autism.
Doctors are attempting to find any other answer to the problem of autism arising in children without centering their attention on the vaccines being given to both children and pregnant women.
In 1997, a study which proved the link between autism and vaccines was ignored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and suppressed by the CDC.
Laura Hewitson, Ph.D. and lead researcher, studied macaque monkeys that were given the exact same MMR vaccine as children in 1994 – 1999. The results entitled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study” were published in Acta Neurobiological Experiments in 2010. This vaccine has the mercury based preservative Thimerosal.
Hewitson discovered that: “Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule . . . These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.”
The research paper documented that there were significant biological changes and altered behaviors that occurred in the vaccinated monkeys that were identical to children diagnosed with ASD (autism).
Sufferers of autism develop a broad spectrum of symptoms ranging from:
• Mild social awkwardness
• Asperger’s syndrome
• Profound mental retardation
• Debilitating repetitive behaviors
• Inability to communicate
The unvaccinated monkey exhibited no changes or symptoms whatsoever.
Dr. Bernadine Healy, who has read this study by Hewitson but did not participate in the research, made these remarks concerning the findings: “I think public health officials have been too quick to dismiss the hypothesis as ‘irrational,’ without sufficient studies of causation…without studying the population that got sick . . . I have not seen major studies that focus on 300 kids who got autistic symptoms within a period of a few weeks of the vaccines.”
In 2003, a study came out of Denmark that showed that when doctors stopped using vaccines that contained the mercury-based Thimerosal, the incidents of autism began to dramatically reduce. When the study was published by the CDC, the agency changed the findings to say that the removal of Thimerosal was actually the direct cause of the rising autism rates.
The authors of the study contacted the CDC, regarding their change without the express permission of the authors prior to publication. An investigation concluded that the editors of the Journal were coerced by the CDC to print the revised data.
The danger associated with vaccines extends beyond the advent of autism. Vaccines being created now are done so with patented GMOs mixed with human DNA which creates broken information that are read by the cells of the body and directly translates to disease in the body.
