HEALTH / COMMUNICATION DISORDERS<br><br>
Extract: ...<br><br>
More than a quarter of all Thai children suffer from some form of communication disorder, with symptoms ranging from slow development in speaking and listening, to fully diagnosed autism, experts warned yesterday.<br>
...<br>
"Some three or four-year-old children...cannot comprehend the meaning of words and cannot speak in sentences to communicate or express themselves,"....However, problems can also arise in otherwise healthy children.

How many more children are going to be harmed before this madness stops? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Yes, there is a poisoning problem in Thailand. They have phased out leaded gasoline, as of 2002 I believe. Leaded gasoline contaminates soil, so the food supply is probably contaminated. There are many additional sources of heavy metals in children, including industrial exposure of parents.<br><br><a href="http://www.wrm.org.uy/bulletin/71/Thailand.html" target="_blank">http://www.wrm.org.uy/bulletin/71/Thailand.html</a><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Nearly 100 cattle have died and the villagers cannot drink from the stream because it makes them sick. Some forest rangers in Thung Yai believe that wildlife is also suffering as they have seen deer and mousedeer dying in the same way as the cattle.......</td>

In that whole list of mercury exposure not one place where they mention the mercury directly injected into the system via vaccines. As though that were not at least as damaging.<br><br>
Everything is to blame - but not vaccines.

MT---- do you remember the thread about autism in AFrica. How it has started to manifest in greater numbers in various countries after a big vax push?<br><br><br>
this whole thing makes me so sad.

Yes, mercury is bad. But it is not fair to solely blame vaccine-induced exposure to mercury, when there are significant dietary and environmental exposures. And exposure in utero.<br><br>
In the case of children in Thailand, there are also huge exposure levels to lead. Known to case learning dissabilities.

Nor is it fair to <b>totally omit the mercury in vaccines</b> which is injected directly into the muscles where it can go nowhere but into the blood and from there directly to the brain.

That's right, Gitti.<br><br>
And... to blame Autism as a cause of a communication disorder is like saying a communication disorder is caused by a communication disorder.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Autism is not a disease so it cannot be the cause of a communication disorder. If anything, Autism is a description of a communication disorder.

I teach English at a big school near Bangkok and have some problem children in my classes. A few of them are on medication.<br><br>
The Thai people are brought up to respect authority and as far as I am aware, nobody in Thailand questions vaccination. Most Thai children are therefore routinely vaccinated.<br><br>
Referring to the finding that a quarter of all Thai children suffer from some form of communication disorder, Prof. Krisana Lertsukprasert of the Thai Speech-Language and Hearing Association is quoted as saying (in the Bangkok Post article): "This is worrying, as we cannot always find the cause of communication disorders".<br><br>
I wonder if the professor is even aware of the vaccination-causes-autism controversy?

It's amazing that even well-educated people like professors appear to be completely unaware of vaccinations as the cause of the huge increase in autism and other communication and behaviour disorders. Or perhaps they just don't want to rock the boat. Some have however turned whistleblower, like former vaccine researcher Dr. Mark Randall (look up 'Dr. Mark Randall interview' on google), or US neurosurgeon of 26 years, Dr. Russell Blaylock MD, who has issued the following warning concerning vaccinations:<br><br>
"The aluminium and the mercury used in vaccines are significant neurotoxins, which play a major role in all neurological disorders. It is also important to remember that both of these metals accumulate in the brain and spinal cord. This makes them much more dangerous than rapidly excreted toxins.<br><br>
Postnatal development - from birth to age six or seven - involves the fine-tuning of synaptic connections, dendritic development and neural pathway refinement, all of which prepare the brain for more complex thinking. These brain elements are very sensitive to toxins and excessive brain stimulation during this period."<br><br>
Dr Blaylock goes on to say that our society is littered with millions of children who have been harmed in one degree or other by vaccinations and that we should also not forget the millions of parents who who have had to watch helplessly as their children have been destroyed by devastating vaccination programmes."<br><br>
Dr. Blaylock is a nationally recognized, board-certified neurosurgeon, health practitioner, author and lecturer. He has more than a quarter-century of medical experience. His credentials include 26 years of experience in neurosurgery, editorship of the respected Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons and Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, and many years as Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi.

You are quite right, Gitti. Vaccines are not solely to blame for exposure to mercury. Mercury amalgams e.g. are also a significant source of mercury pollution.<br><br>
However, unlike some of the environmental sources of mercury pollution, vaccines are a source of mercury (and aluminium) pollution which can be easily and completely avoided, simply by not vaccinating.<br><br>
Apart from the toxic metals, vaccines also contain foreign protein in the form of bacterial and viral matter and also minute particles from the culture mediums such matter was propagated on: aborted foetal tissue, monkey kidneys, chick embryos etc. Vaccines furthermore contain contaminating viruses from these animal tissues.<br><br>
Injecting foreign protein and toxic metals into children's (or any living) organisms is a major immunological insult. Hence the anaphylactic reactions, convulsions etc which often occur as a result of vaccination.<br><br>
Injecting these poisons into the body gives foreign viruses, fungi and bacteria direct access to the blood, the lymphatic system, the tissues and organs. By-passing the body's normal defense mechanisms such as the skin, the intestinal tract and the mucous membranes therefore achieves exactly what the immune system is meant to prevent.<br><br>
The immunological shock caused by this invasive procedure, which the organism is totally unprepared for and doesn't know how to deal with, causes the immune system to become deranged and to respond to further challenges inappropriately, either with apathy or overreaction, evident as asthma or allergies of all kinds. With repeated vaccinations, the immune system goes into a decline, hence the chronic diseases and disorders. When these are in turn suppressed with antibiotics or other drugs, degenerative diseases eventually result.<br><br>
Far from being a sign of health or immunity, the absence of illness in the vaccinated is simply a sign of an overwhelmed immune system which is no longer capable of a normal response (such as e.g. a fever and/or a rash) to an immune challenge.

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">In essence, too many vaccines are being given to children during the brain's most rapid growth period. Known toxic metals are beings used in the vaccines that interfere with brain metabolism, antioxidant enzymes, damage DNA and DNA repair enzymes and trigger excitotoxicity.<br><br>
Removing the mercury will help but will not solve the problem because overactivation of the brain's immune system will cause varying degrees of neurological damage to the highly-vulnerable developing brain.</td>

Hi from Thailand! (Hi Capricorn... which school are you at?)<br><br>
And it seems also that autism has only more recently been researched here. The King's grandson (the one killed in the tsunami) was autistic which made a push towards researching it.<br><br>
Living here (and raising kids here) is scary with all of the toxins around. We don't vax at all. Have they ever heard of an exemption in schools for not vaxing? When I ask at DH's school, no one even knows what I'm talking about when I ask. They look at me, like "why wouldn't you?"<br><br>
Capricorn, you want to write a letter to the editor of the Bangkok Post, or should I do it?

Oh, that is so sad about the king's grandson. I did not know about his grandson having autism or dying in the Tsunami. Honestly, when I think about the Tsunami my stomach just tightens into a ball....two years later and it feels like yesterday. sigh.
