<p><span style="font-size:medium;">Katy Autism Support, along with Houston Autism Disability Network, is hosting three authors who are world-renowned for their work in the autism community.  The event, which includes two presentations and book signings, will take place <span class="yshortcuts" id="user_lw_1294113814_5" style="border-bottom:#366388 2px dotted;background:transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%;">Jan. 15, 2011</span> at Graceview Baptist Church in Tomball from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.   There is no charge to attend, but RSVP is required.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:medium;">THIS IS NOT JUST FOR THOSE DEALING WITH THIS DIAGNOSIS- SO MANY OF TODAYS KIDS ARE SICK - SKIN ISSUES, BEHAVIOR, ATTENTION, BOWEL AND MORE - THIS INFORMATION IS FOR EVERYONE</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:medium;">Whether or not you believe vaccines play a role in autism, this is an opportunity to hear from three experts who have devoted their lives to researching the topic.  This issue is far too important to rely on one-minute sound bites you hear on TV or vague reassurances that the question has been "asked and answered."  </span></p>

<div><span style="font-size:medium;">There are some who say Dr. Wakefield, one of our visiting authors, has been discredited.  In fact, he did lose his license to practice medicine in the UK, not because his science was disproven, but because they claimed he did not obtain informed consent for research (despite the fact that documents proving otherwise were produced at the hearings).  Yet, after reading the book chronicling his experience (Callous Disregard), he was recently invited to present to the European Parliament, where he received a standing ovation.  These are the stories you don't hear in the media.</span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:medium;"> </span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:medium;">Mark Blaxill and Dan Olmsted, who just published The Age of Autism:  Mercury, Medicine and a Manmade Epidemic (a book they exhaustively researched for five years) traced autism to its roots and met the first person ever to be diagnosed with autism.  Their meticulous work looking at the first of Kanner's cases provides compelling evidence that ties autism with environmental exposures to mercury, the second most toxic substance on Earth.</span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:medium;"> </span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:medium;">This is the most important debate of our time.  The number of cases of vaccine-induced autism being compensated by federal agencies continues to rise.  Please mark your calendars, plan to attend and encourage others to do so as well.  Bring your tough questions and your open mind.  These speakers normally present at national and international conferences not accessible to many of us who can't afford the airfare, hotels and registration fees to attend.  It's a great opportunity to hear them locally, and free of charge.</span></div>

<div><span style="font-size:medium;">Please join me in showing your support for these men who have fought so hard for our children. </span></div>
