Autism is Not the New Normal

What’s wrong with being autistic?  Isn’t autism just another kind of normal?

Let’s start with the question of whether autism is a profound disorder or just another way of being normal and get that out of the way right now.

The people who espouse this bizarre position, hoping that autism is just like being left handed, a normal difference which should be accepted and adapted to, do not want their children – or yours! – retrieved, cured or assisted.  They say autism is not an almost invariably preventable, cataclysmic and tragic consequence of largely avoidable, and always treatable, fundamentally toxic inputs, including from vaccines.

Political correctness aside, I say autism is
that cataclysm and that it can, and must, be prevented and cured.

Those who say that autism is just another way of being normal use a scientific-sounding, made-up term, “neurodiversity”.  They proclaim that people who are not autistic or, as it is popular to say, “on the autistic spectrum” are “neurotypical”.

Think about it for a moment: if someone is “just neurodiverse” then there is no need to change them, or to change the conditions that led to their damaged condition.

What follows from that is that any attempt to “cure” autism (dealing with the problem) should be abandoned for the [to them] far more worthy goal of “accepting” autism.  They are invested in coercing society to “make nice” but not deal with – that is, to stop – the underlying poisoning of our children.

They are wrong.  They have a right to be wrong, of course, but they have no right to harm others.  They are willing to sacrifice your child on their ideological alter to make themselves feel better.  This is not just a matter of opinion.  It is a matter of social engineering and policy.

In fact, they have recently succeeded in changing the diagnosis of autism so that Asperger’s Syndrome is no longer, according to the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, DSM-V, a diagnosis.[1] The consequences will be dramatic – and potentially disastrous – for those seeking services and help, whether for themselves or their family members.

This has been in the works for quite a while.

A 2012 study, using a preliminary version of the new DSM-5 autism spectrum criteria, found about 75 percent of patients who had been diagnosed with Asperger’s under the old criteria would no longer qualify for a diagnosis, raising the possibility that they could lose access to services, such as special education in schools.[2]

You can bet that autism, expensive to society and embarrassing for the poisoners, is next on the chopping block if they have their way. The neurodiversity crowd are the witting (or unwitting, but always dangerous), dupes of a cruel and calculated assault on our children, our future, indeed, our very DNA.

Some will say this is paranoid or conspiratorial. 

That is, frankly, because they have not examined the evidence.

Some will say this is harsh and unkind. They have not examined – and perhaps not implemented – real options for cures for autistic people damaged by the assaults on them.

Some will say this is defeatist.  They have not seen a fully retrieved former autist living life normally.

I have.

As a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist with a nearly half-century of clinical perspective…

…derived from successfully practicing both medicine and psychiatry without ANY drugs or vaccines, I say that these “neurodiversity” people are either:

(1)  Shills working for the pro-vaccinators, helping them reap the profits of destruction and medical mayhem which their vaccines cause or

(2)  Self-indulgent muddled thinkers who do not want to confront the ugly reality that their children (or, increasingly, they themselves) have been injured by agents which are known to cause cataclysmic neurological and other organ-system harm. Those agents could have been avoided, should have been avoided, but were instead willingly embraced. And the rest is their history.

It should not be your child’s history.

For some, this is so painfully devastating that it is better to subscribe to a false belief system of “neurodiversity” than to confront the reality:

“I could have avoided this for my child but I chose not to.  I could have listened to what I ignored and now the consequences are apparent life-long devastation.  No, let’s back away from the truth and soften the grief and horror with a lie: being autistic in another kind of normal and, somehow, is OK.  There. Now I feel ever so much better.”

What is the Autistic Spectrum?


Autism, or location anywhere on the “Autism Spectrum”
of disorders, is a cataclysmic condition. 

Let me remind you that genes change over eons, not decades, and that when I graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in 1970, 1 child in 10,000 was autistic. That was the genetic norm for this condition apparently for millennia.

There has been no genetic drift towards autism: there has been, however, massive genetic, epigenetic, enzymatic and tissue poisoning in the air, food, water, fire-retardant pillows, PJs and mattresses and, most of all, leading the pack of genetic jackals, “unavoidably unsafe”[4] vaccines.

Despite the best efforts of the collaborators in a grand scheme of deception and mayhem, [since vaccine injury is well known and well characterized to cause a host of disasters while vaccination accomplishes less than nothing for health[5], the science is clear[6] and, as Hillary Clinton so famously said, “settled”[7]], the reality is that countless parents have watched countless healthy babies and children collapse into autism following vaccination.

Dr. Andrew Moulden, MD, PhD documented with exquisite care that every vaccine causes micro strokes and maxi harm, whether or not children show overt autism.[8] .

Of course, the science is settled on the vaccine damage side while the propaganda is all on the “You MUST HAVE Your Ever Increasing Vaccines!” side.That is, after all, where the money is, both in the vaccines themselves and in the aftermarket of conditions and diseases caused by the vaccines, including the rapidly increasing profit center called “Autism” and the well-established one called “cancer”.[9]

I wish it were different, but, in fact, no matter how distasteful the reality is, there is one and only one possible explanation for this cataclysmic and escalating deviation from normal genetic and neurological function in so many children: environmental causes preventing the normal expression of genes and the organs they create and control.

As I write this, the US CDC, as corrupt and conflict-riddled an organization as it is possible to imagine, is forced to admit that the rate of Autism in the US is now 1 child in 45 or more!

As a Child and Adult Psychiatrist practicing health care for almost 50 years, my answers to the questions urgently and destructively raised by the Neurodiversity crowd are  No, No and Yes..=

No, autism is not just another way of being normal.

No, non-autistic people are not just “neurotypical” while those with autism are “neurodiverse” any more than people with cancer are just “immunodiverse” while people without it are just “immunotypical”.

Yes, people with autism can, and should, be helped toward normal functioning as a primary goal for them.

And, yes, autism, first and foremost, but not solely, is a neurological condition, and is curable in part or entirely.  I know, because I have been the treating physician for many autistic people who were able to leave that undesirable and painful condition behind and become emotionally, neurologically, and socially normal while using and enjoying their full capacities for a rich and productive independent life.

OK.  So we need to fix autism, but what is wrong with just calling autism “neurodiversity”?

Although it sounds nice and is certainly politically correct, when looking at the question more deeply we see the danger behind the apparent and easily observed absurdity.  This false belief permits the continued use of the very strategies and toxic agents that create more autistic persons (especially vaccinations) and dissuade people caught up in this dangerous myth from turning to the simple, effective and non-toxic natural solutions that address the problems of autism so well.  “Nothing to cure here.  Move along!”
