A Year of Autism Investigated


By Jake Crosby

Yesterday was America’s birthday, but today is Autism Investigated‘s birthday. On July 5th, 2013, I founded Autism Investigated to provide a fresh perspective that other media outlets and blogs were lacking. I am proud to say that on average, Autism Investigated has provided original content or publicized important news stories on an almost weekly basis. However, I am equally proud of the devoted readership and insightful comment discussions that have come with each post. This is also something too many sites lack. Some resort to censorship, others encourage bullying, but Autism Investigated encourages dialogue.

Remember to follow on Twitter, like on Facebook and subscribe via email in the box above. And of course, keep on reading, commenting and sharing your thoughts as Autism Investigated continues to bring timely reports to uncover the who, what, when, where and why of the autism epidemic.

Jake Crosby is editor of Autism Investigated. He is a 2011 graduate of Brandeis University with a Bachelor of Arts in both History and Health: Science, Society and Policy and a 2013 graduate of The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services with a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology. He currently attends the University of Texas School of Public Health where he is studying for a Ph.D. in Epidemiology.

        It’s nice to be able to point out that not a single question was ever raised about the fees for medical services rendered by Andrew Wakefield and his cohorts at the time they were submitted for pay-out by the defunct British Legal Aid.

        After all, a guy has got to eat. He has to provide for his family. He can’t do all the work necessary to further medical research and not expect to be paid.

        No one in an official position of scrutiny ever raised so much as an eyebrow contemporaneously , yet suddenly a slime “journalist” could precociously scandalize these earnings as ill-gotten gain and get away with it.

        In fact, none of the paperwork submitted by Wakefield and Company was considered even mildly ‘fraudulent’ enough for the appropriate authorities to decline financial support.

        If you look at the length of time Wakefield’s work “sat” in the medical community spotlight before it was attacked it’s a far cry of idiocy to claim it had more to do with any decline of any vaccine than any of the vaccine manufacturing drug company boondoggles such as the Bird Flu fiasco and the Swine Flu II scamdemic.

        My thing about Wakefield is he doesn’t present the entire truth about Measles or any of the other neurologically-active viruses inside the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccine, which goes far beyond a full-length pimply rash, or gut damage. While it is possible that colonial growths inside a digestive tract could be a cause of Autism, Wakefield, perhaps, failed to consider the more direct menace to the brain and central nervous system.

        Doctors used to know that one neurologically-active virus infection co-infecting a subject with another had a very bad tendency leading to significantly increased developmental delays in some.

        It’s nice to have a place where this can be mentioned.

        • Dr. Wakefield was involved in research later on that concerned the effect of measles virus on the brain.

            Exactly, Jake.

            That’s the same sort of ‘designer’ report composed to specifically propagate the Hannah Poling vaccine injury claim.

            If you look closer at the single-child Poling study authored by her own father (which had zero problems with the slime ‘journalist’) one wonders how dubiously treated the majority of vaccine-injured children really are.

            The point is long before Wakefield ever came around, doctors routinely knew just how dangerous to mental health co-infections with neurologically-active viruses ARE. (present tense)

            These small-scale reports are slack enough for the authors to back-pedal out of.

            • By slime “journalist,” are you referring to Brian Deer? Because I read a comment he left on “Science”Blogs bragging about how nervous the Polings were that he may have accessed their daughter’s confidential medical records.

              • Media Scholar on July 10, 2014 at 4:51 pm said:

                In many respects the Poling case was simply a carefully controlled, anti-litigation model or dry run used to demonstrate the actual prohibition of settling claims was a necessity for the federal government based on multiplying that cost to compensating each family.

                In essence, the federal government is not interested in processing the thousands of other “Autism” claims as the Poling case gave them actual dollar figures proving that the developmental delay/Autistic-like disorders could not be recognized as vaccine side effects as the cost-effectiveness of mass vaccination policies are extremely cost-prohibitive should justice be upheld.

                Naturally, this would ruin the liability shield the vaccine-manufacturing drug companies are hiding behind relating.

    Thank you Jake for a WONDERFUL year of “TRUTH” within the autism community! After being forced into the community over 10 years ago….this is refreshing to FINALLY here someone doing their best to shed light on the truth that has stayed in the dark by those that are the so-called ‘big players’ in the community! As I mentioned on my FB, you truly do rank up there close to Dr. Paul G. King regarding being one that goes above and beyond the call and exposing those things/persons that need exposed that have contributed/caused autism to continue in the “epidemic” levels that they are happening! May God bless you and keep you! Continue to the fight! You are a “Champion” to many! God Bless!
