Without Informed Consent: A Study of the Connection Between Vaccines and Childhood Autism & SIDS
This Power Point presentation summarizes the key findings of the sites listed below in layman’s terms.
“Cry of the Heart—Stop Hurting the Children—The Medical Terrors of Vaccinations” by Mark Sircus Ac., OMD
This is a most informative 138-page booklet. It includes stories of children who have died of supposed SIDS hours after being given vaccinations. Have some tissues handy as the parental stories are enraging and heart wrenching. This is perhaps the best piece done on the topic.
“Polio” by Neil Z. Miller of Think Twice Global Vaccine Institute
This site unleashes the true facts that vaccines have done little to decrease disease. Rather, clever new definitions for Polio required labeling cases as meningitis instead of Polio. Graphs show that meningitis increased in direct proportion with the supposed decrease in polio. If you get angry easily don’t read this alone!
This site explains in layman’s terms what vaccines are intended to protect the human race from and what harm they have also done. It is an informative take-no-sides site aimed at educating with all the facts to make an informed decision.
The Vaccine Website
There is more information on here than one can possibly read! It includes ingredient lists, testimonials, lists of the diseases, theories, nutritional healing from vaccine damage, lists of critics, medical citations, media stories, links to government reform, and vaccine exemption information in the United States.
Vaccine Exemption Alliance
This site provides forms for most states and countries to request vaccine exemptions for religious, personal, and medical reasons. A most informative site and must have for parents who chose not to vaccinate.

The reason for the rapid rise of autism in the United States that began in the 1990s is a mystery. Although individuals probably have a genetic predisposition to develop autism, researchers suspect that one or more environmental triggers are also needed. One of those triggers might be the battery of vaccinations that young children receive. Using regression analysis and controlling for family income and ethnicity, the relationship between the proportion of children who received the recommended vaccines by age 2 years and the prevalence of autism (AUT) or speech or language impairment (SLI) in each U.S. state from 2001 and 2007 was determined. A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI. Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism. Further study into the relationship between vaccines and autism is warranted.

Reduction of autistic traits following dietary intervention and elimination of exposure to environmental substances.
Slimak, K. 2003. Reduction of autistic traits following dietary intervention and elimination of exposure to environmental substances. In Proceedings of 2003 International Symposium on Indoor Air Quality and Health Hazards, National Institute of Environmental Health Science, USA, and Architectural Institute of Japan, January 8-11, 2003, Tokyo, Japan, 2:206-216.
Effects of environmental exposure were isolated and studied in 49 autistic children. Elimination of food-related reactions entirely allowed effects of environmental chemicals to be thoroughly studied indefinitely in the absence of food-related symptoms. Initially unaffected by social contexts, the autistic subjects acted out the ways they were affected by their environment without the altering effects of societal influences; and severity of the adverse effects made observation and study easier. There was a strong correlation (P<.000) between environmental exposure levels and autistic symptoms and behaviors. There appeared to be nothing inherently wrong with autistic children studied. The children in the program (universal diet and clean room) returned to normal physically, in temperament, in awareness of surroundings and others, in emotions and empathy, and in ability to learn. Based on the results of the present study, a broad spectrum of severe and chronic autistic symptoms appear to be environmentally based, apparently caused by chronic exposure to volatile organic compounds, and appear to be fully reversible in the proper environment.

Is Autism Simply Mercury or Environmental Poisoning?
The Autism Society of America defines autism as a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults with autism typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.
Autism currently affects 1 in 150 children according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2007) and is one of five disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) which include:
Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD)
PDD-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)
The symptoms of autism are nearly identical to those of mercury poisoning.
