What Is This Thief We Call Autism?


When I was having babies, the odds of having a child develop Autism were one in a few thousand. Today, the odds are one in 100 and for military families, one in 88. What has changed in this country in the past thirty years? No matter how hard I think and wonder and study, I just do not know.

I do know that there are only about four things we all have in common: what we eat, what we drink, what we breathe, and the immunizations our children are receiving.  Whatever this thing is that is stealing our children has to come from one of these four…doesn’t it?

If you have not read Drew’s story, you might want to do that first. Then, the Ingrams and parents around this country who have children who battle Autism every day would love your comments or ideas. Together, we just might be able to discover the answer.

Of course, there is one possibility that is too horrible to contemplate: Could it actually be the immunizations, and does the medical world already know this…AND could it be covering the answer because of the fear the unbelievable litigation that will follow should immunizations be the culprit?

    Just wanted to tell you that I read Drew’s story and enjoyed it so much. I, too, think that the immunizations cause autism in some children.

    Scott’s daughter has a friend whose Dad, Wayne Gilpin, owns a publishing company that only publishes books on autism. He also holds seminars all over the United States and there is going to be one in Dallas in Oct. Dr. Temple Grandin, who is also autistic, will be there as she is at most of his seminars..

    All of us older people didn’t have to get immunizations. We had both kinds of measles, mumps, chicken pox. We were a little bit sick for a couple of days maybe, so why is the government determined that kids must have these shots as the alternative would be bad? Why? We all went through the childhood diseases and it was just a normal thing to have them. Didn’t hurt us any.
