One Way to Possibly Avoid Autism: Test for Mitochondrial Dysfunction before Vaccinating

You may not have head of Hannah Poling, but the vaccine manufacturer's have.  Her case is one of many that was awarded compensation by the US Government in vaccine court because it was proven that her autism was caused by vaccines.

What was it that was the bullet that loaded the autism gun?  Mitochondrial Dysfunction.

A newly released study proves that children with Mitochondrial Dysfunction are at greater risk for developing autism when exposed to environmental toxins.  

"…mitochondrial dysfunction could be the final common disease pathway that results in brain dysfunction as a consequence of many divergent causes.  This can explain how the various different physiological and genetic abnormalities and toxic exposures, which have all been linked to autism, could result in the same disease,"

What are the 'toxic exposures' spoken of?  While although not clearly defined in the study, it is common knowledge that vaccines have a slew of neurotoxic ingredients, such as heavy metals and MSG.  Other toxins come in our food supply, in the form of artificial colors, flavors, and sugars as well as those from over the counter medicines and personal care items.

What are your odds?

The investigators found that 1 out of 20 children with autism have been found to have severe mitochondrial disease, compared to approximately 1 out of 10,000 individuals in the general population.  In addition, the study points out that a much wider number of children with autism, possibly one-third of children with autism, might have milder mitochondrial dysfunction.

So how do you know if your child has a Mitochondrial Dysfunction? 

The review also identified the wide array of blood markers that have been used to identify children with autism and mitochondrial dysfunction.  These blood markers may help physicians identify mitochondrial dysfunction in children with autism.  

The review also found that only 19% of children with autism and mitochondrial dysfunction had an identifiable genetic abnormality that could account for the dysfunction.  This finding suggests that other factors, such as toxins found in the environment and other stressors, contribute to mitochondrial dysfunction in children with autism.

So, while although testing for blood markers can be one way of assessing your risk, it's not a 100% guarantee.   But certainly, it's better to investigate than not look at all before you vaccinate or feed your child junk food.
