Autism Spectrum Disorder or as we know ASD is a disorder falling under a huge spectrum. It doesn’t have one single diagnosis. Different people diagnosed with ASD exhibit different symptoms. The way there isn’t one single symptom defining it; the same way there isn’t one single reason causing it.
Neither doctors and scientists or researchers have been able to come to a conclusion for the true cause of Autism. However, some of the suspected reasons that have come up in researches are as follows.
There is a huge argument/debate going on world-over stating that vaccines are one of the biggest reasons causing ASD in today’s day and time. We vaccinate our children to protect them from various diseases. The important questions to ask here, are we really protecting our children? Do our kids need so many vaccines by the time they turn 12-14 months old? The number of vaccines given and the combination of certain vaccines are harming the kids. Measles-Mums-Rubella, commonly known as the MMR vaccine given during the age of 12-14 months is widely coming up in researches as one the major reasons for causing ASD.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist, states in one of her interviews, “the vaccines are full of toxins.” She directly shows the connection between the MMR vaccine and Autism. The theory of MMR and Autism has been around for a long time. It seems it was first published around 1998 giving the connection between MMR and Autism. But the studies in 1998 weren’t stating what was in the MMR that was hurting the children. In a recent interview Dr Seneff, explains how the chemicals present in the MMR vaccine enter the brain and can cause damages like seizures, shortness of breath and destroy the gut. You can find a detailed explanation of the connection between MMR vaccine and Autism in this video interview of Dr Stephanie Seneff.

Jenny McCarthy, Television host, Author and an Activist is fighting against the whole system for the cause of ‘stop giving unnecessary vaccines to the newborn children.’ She is a living example of how her son who was born normal, got injured with the vaccines and then later, how she recovered her son from the damage caused. She is hugely professing to stop unnecessary and extra vaccination. In an interview to CNN, she had asked a question to all the parents whose children were affected with the vaccine, “Would you take measles for a few weeks versus Autism for a whole lifetime for your kid with the vaccine?”
It is clearly evident that the traditional doctors will never accept the fact that vaccines are harmful. Sure, some kids take it very well without any side effects but there are so many other kids who cannot take it that well. And of course the business of the pharmaceutical companies and turnovers involved. There is a huge income and taxes that are generated through the selling and usage of vaccines. And also, the fear of an epidemic of diseases that will come into the picture by stopping the vaccines, hence it is a huge step by the government to be considered.
As per ‘Autism Treatment Centre of America’, a few studies have found some cases of ASD linked to maternal exposure to certain viruses (measles, mumps, rubella, herpes, syphilis, cytomegalovirus and toxoplasmosis) and chemicals (thalidomide and valproic acid). However, these account for a very small proportion of all cases.
Other factors that account to Autism are the toxins in the air, food and the water that we consume during pregnancy and later give the same type of servings to our children. The Genetically Modified, commonly termed as the GMO foods that we consume is highly accountable for the neurological damages happening to our generation. For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles. She has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, undertaking topics as alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health. She warns that by 2025 nearly half of our kids will be Autistic due to overuse of the GMO’s in our foods.
In a conference held in April 2015, Dr. Seneff noted the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the use of Roundup on crops (and the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with rising rates of Autism. Children with Autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder
Genetics does play a role in causing ASD but isn’t the only reason. It hasn’t yet been proved scientifically that certain genes of the mother, father or their ancestors are completely responsible for causing Autism. As per, ‘The Autism Treatment Centre of America’, Studies have shown that if one identical twin has the diagnosis, then there is a 30-40% chance that the other twin will develop ASD. This concordance is hardly ever seen with non-identical twins. (Bailey et al, 1995) When a wider definition of ASD is used, the probability rates jump to 90% for identical twins and 10% for non-identical. The probability of receiving an ASD diagnosis when another sibling has already been diagnosed is estimated between 2 and 14%, a 10 to 20 fold increase over the general population incidence (see Hertz-Picciotto et al, 2006). No single gene has been identified responsible and most genetic researches believe that multiple genes are involved. (International Molecular Genetic Study of Autism Consortium, 1998.)
Whatever, the causes are for Autism, I would say, to save the future generation from the harmful effects of this dreadful disease is to eat organic food, stop unnecessary vaccines like MMR and go green – plant more trees & reduce all types of pollution to the environment. Save the environment and save our future generation.
Spread this message by sharing it as much as possible to help save our future generation. Tag a friend, someone you know or a family member who is about to vaccinate their child. Let’s keep parents informed that they could say “NO” to unnecessary or extra vaccine for their kid. Follow us and be updated. I will be providing a step-by-step guide to complete recovery from ASD or at least getting very close to recovery in my subsequent write-ups.
If you want more information, guidance and counseling, we provide services for the same. It is designed to suit every family or person in trouble with ASD. You can email and get in touch with us for more services.
