Did anyone else see this? The Vaccine Court found in favor of a family whose child was developing normally until they gave the child 9 vaccinations at once. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-kirby/government-concedes-vacci_b_88323.html

This is absolutely HUGE news. Tell everyone you know. Then also tell them that all vaccines have free glutamic acid added to them, and that the genes for autism code for glutamate neurotransmission.

Thanks Carol. I passed it on to a grandma who has two autistic grandchildren.
Did you see the article about glutamate & schizophrenia dated 2/24/08 in the Business section of the NY Times at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/24/business/24drug.html?scp=1&sq=glutamate&st=nyt

Carol, What does "genes for autism code for glutamate neurotransmission" mean?

Dianne, good question. In one of the largest studies to date, it was found that autistic individuals shared the same unusual genes. They had a genetic tendency toward autism in their DNA. The genes involved - there were several, carry the instructions to make the proteins at the end of nerve cells. These proteins are for what are called synapses - the areas between nerve cells where glutamate acts as a messenger - carrying the nerve impulse from one nerve cell to the next. In persons with autism, there are 50% MORE connections at the ends of their nerve cells. They are - in a sense TWICE as sensitive to everything those without autism are. Since most of your nerve cells are in the brain - this is where we notice autistic-ness most - behaviors. Folks without autism think these children aren't noticing anything, when in fact, they are noticing everything TOO MUCH. They are trying to avoid overstimulation and protect themselves by pulling inward.
Now, imagine a child with these genes - whose brain is being formed and wired - before the age of about 7. But they are given 9 vaccines in the same shot - with a lot of free glutamate in it too. The brain has its own immune system. They are cells called the microglia. Glutamic acid causes a dramatic response by these cells and inflammation is the result. In persons with autistic behaviors, inflammation is found in the brain. This inflammation is present at the same time the brain is being wired differently.
The ruling in the Vaccine Court case shows clearly that a child who was developing normally until 18 months old was given a shot containing 9 different vaccines - two of which contained mercury, but all of which contained free glutamic acid. This child suddenly stopped speaking, and developed autistic behaviors. It was found that the shots precipitated the autistic spectrum disorder. Now all we have to do is have them examine the effects of free glutamic acid on these children with the genetic tendency toward increased nervous system sensitivity.

I hope that was clearer :-)

Carol, is there support to the suggestion that these children were possibly exposed to too much glutamate during the time the brain was being wired as fetuses..via the placenta and the mother's high MSG diet?...that too much glutamate present would basically effect the way the wiring took place...mutation?...more connections being formed? If the mutation was being set up, then wouldn't testing these individuals after birth show evidence of unusual genes having to do with glutamate wiring? I'm probably not making much sense...looking for reasons, the chicken before the egg, etc. It's just that the increase in autism is ENORMOUS. Why wasn't it so manifest earlier if there wasn't some connection to MSG consumption (growing as it has, too). I get the feeling that scientists would rather blame everything on genes.

Carol, Interesting information, but I'm still trying to figure out the clause "genes for autism code for glutamate neurotransmission". Is the word code the verb? If so, what does code mean? Please forgive my ignorance.

Dianne, code is the verb. It means "carry the instructions for". Think of the proteins that form the nerve endings as chains clumped up in a ball and the amino acids are the links in a chain. DNA information found in the genes is the blueprint for in what order and which amino acids should be lined up to make the proteins.

Deb, there is some question about HOW these mutations are happening. Some experts think many of them are spontaneous. Which means that they may happen in utero. Which means MSG may have a hand in that as well. And so, a test at birth will be VERY helpful.

Yes, that's what Dr. Blaylock once suggested...like a PKU test. I remember Dr. Schwartz citing some test on animals that when MSG was added to their diet, they became more lethargic. The next generation from these first animals were more effected by the same diet and demonstrated some shorter stature and inability to do mazes well. By the third generation, they had deformed digits, were obese, could not do mazes, and were infertile...many died. So it would suggest that the fetuses were being effected...and perhaps their genes.

Quotes from our book, Battling the MSG Myth/pg. 60:
Paschner et all. (Methylmercury alters glutamate transport in astrocytes:. Neurochem Int. Aug-Spt,200;37 (23);199-206). It states, "In the absence of glutamate, neurons are unaffected by acute exposure to mercury...Co-application of nontoxic concentrations of methylmercury AND glutamate leads to typical appearance of neuronal lesions associated with excitotoxic stimulation (Matyja and Albrecht1993.). Although ethylmercury was used in some vaccines, ( along with glutamate in many instances) it is Jack Samuel's understanding that it would have the same effect as methylmercury. He said in an email to me, " While everyone is looking for a connection of mercury to autism, the referenced article should have encouraged scientists to look for a possible connection of the ever increasing use of free glutamic acid (MSG) in our food supply."

An article was in yesterday's newspaper regarding vaccines - Autism

"Officials: Vaccines may have injured girl with autism-like symptoms"


I thought it might be the same article as Carol sited above, but I don't think so because of the age of the girl. Did anyone else see this? Is it the same article?

It was the same girl. She was on Larry King Live last night. The thing is, it took 7 YEARS for this story to come out. The father was a neurologist. Some folks speculate that part of the settlement was that he had to tell other parents that vaccines are still a good idea. He probably also had to say that it was the mitocondrial disease. But guess what - http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/abstract/161/4/662 this article shows that one gene for autism affects the MITOCONDRIAL aspartate/glutamate carrier. As a neurologist, her father HAS to know that glutamic acid is responsible for his daughter's slide into autism. They probablly put a gag order on him as part of the settlement.

If that's true, he let many other children and parents suffer....for money.

The first court award in a vaccine-autism claim is a big one. CBS News has learned the family of Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million dollars for her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering for the first year alone.

NAA calls for immediate Congressional hearings and scientific investigation into autism-vaccine link
Published on May 11, 2011 at 5:51 AM

Despite numerous studies cited repeatedly by federal officials as proof that vaccines do not cause autism, a new study released today in the Pace Environmental Law Review revealed that over the last two decades, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has been quietly compensating dozens of vaccine injury cases involving a child with autism. The preliminary findings showed approximately 1300 cases of vaccine injury resulted in childhood brain injury, 83 of which had autism. The National Autism Association (NAA) says the study further underscores the need for Congressional hearings and independent scientific research into the autism-vaccine connection.

and why, one wonders, would they do that if, as they say, there was never a need and if, as they say, the researchers who found the original link had fabricated the whole thing?
a pity this couldnt have come to light BEFORE said researchers got drummed right out of the medical field for standing behind their study results when threatened with revoked medical licenses if they did not back down...

btw, my son was always hyperactive, but the tourettes, stuttering, oppositionality and obsessive-compulsive disorder set in IMMEDIATELY after his 2year immunizations, of which the MMR was inadvertently 'doubled-up' (according to a later doctor: who told us "off the record" of course)
im convinced. and ive never appreciated being considered a fringe loony for putting two & two together and blaming his vaccines. or rather, i should say, all the nasty chemicals in the vaccines. i wonder sometimes, how much farther into the Spectrum my boy might be if we had ignored plain observational evidence and continued vaccinating?

oh and my younger son- who has not been immunized beyond 3mos- is just as hyperactive, but with NO SIGNS of the spectrum at all.
hmmmmm

bo'nana, I'm so sorry about your sons, but they are very lucky to have a mom who is astute and tuned in to what would be the cause, and stop any further vaccinations.
