Rise in Autism rates go hand-in-hand with increased vaccinations

Another effort to discount vaccinations as a source of autism has gone into research to prove defective genes as the major culprit. Some epidemiological studies based on twins with autism spectrum disorders was done as early as the mid-1970s. Since then, autism has increased 40-fold. All this from a sudden case of bad genes? This rapid autism rise has coincided with a dramatic increase of early childhood vaccination schedules over the same period, which has been an almost four-fold increase.

The gene theory does not explain how healthy babies suddenly became autistic after undergoing part of an intense series of vaccinations, some shots with multiple-vaccines, at newly born or toddler age.

As a matter of fact, there is very little effort to objectively pursue the autism-vaccination connection. Gene research opposition to the gene theories of autism, or gene theories of many diseases, comes from those who consider environmental causes as primary causal factors, not vaccinations.

Thanks for all *edit*

your help! I haven't had a chance to read through it closely as I've been pretty busy. I'll try to take a look at it this weekend.


I've rearranged the list as you've suggested and added the book by Soaring Bear in addition to some of your descriptions. I still have to look at the other things you've mention but my brain power is dwindling. I used up too much of it on other projects during the week. :-) I'll take a look at the rest later. Thanks for the details.

I know what you mean about

I know what you mean about being busy, still. I've been busy more than a month. When I had time off, I was depleted of energy and would want to do nothing -- and I mean nothing -- but relax, spending not one iota of energy above baseline effort. If a thing required I think, I didn't want to do it, lol. Why? I thought enough at work where my environment is fast paced, a state not meant for me. I enjoy slow to medium pace of life. I also like reflection. Can't reflect in a fast moving environment. If it's possible, then it isn't so without taking a toll. Anyway.

I was watching the Shankland presentation again. (I've watched this video about a dozen times.) When I was watching it a few minutes ago, I paused it and logged in here so I could ask you if you've watched this video yet, one long ago I recommended to you and that you put in your health post. Did you ever get to watch it, still? If you haven't, I'm confident you'll be glad you watched it. I have the video paused at minute 34 (a few minutes into Steinman discussion). I'm glad I revisited this video.

From minute 20 to minute 30 is discussion, among other things, about dental procedures causing jawbone necrosis. A couple names in the video shot out at me and prompted me to tell you them: Frank Billings and William Hunter.

Both men were dentists. Billings was renown. His main work was the focal theory infection. You'll find this work on Google Books. Hunter also had a book, I think, maybe a few books even. Hunter's name propels me to recall John Hunter, William's brother I think and a Scottish medical doctor in America in the middle to late 19th century. Hunter was a remnant of the old guard, bloodletting, the treatment for improving what I've talked about endlessly on the DP: blood flow, circulation.

Now, aside from John Hunter, the other Hunter and Billings are referenced in Death and Dentistry. Also referenced is William Mayo and his sons William and Charles. Beforehand I wrote the Mayos used milk to treat illness. They did. I think one of the Hunters and Billings promoted milk to treat health problems also. I could be wrong about that remembrance because it's been three years since I read dentistry seemingly daily (which I was doing for four or so years up to then) while encountering information I deemed truthful such as the use of milk for illness. Perhaps Google Books will have work on those three men involving milk.

Just thought I'd drop this information and recommendation for you, still. See you round.

I just finished

watching Shankland's presentation a few minutes ago after you mentioned it again. I started watching it when you first posted it, but never finished. Usually, I watch every video I post but I'm behind on some of the dentistry videos. Susan Stockton's Osteo-cavitational Osteonecrosis video is next. I only got through about 20 minutes the first time. I guess I'll have to start watching a video here or there to get through them. Shankland's video was excellent though.

I'll probably add a section on cavitations and pull out the relevant videos from the original "Dental Procedures" section when I have time.

Doctors, the two men were doctors, not dentists

But I think their work involved, maybe only indirectly, dentistry. As I said, it's been a few years since I read Billings and Hunter.

You said you'd pull out videos. Does pull out mean to remove? Which videos would you remove? I vaguely recall which videos you have. I think your post's dentistry section contained or contains worthy videos.

Isn't the Shankland video one of them? I could swear the dentistry section included this and Stockton's presentation (2 hours, 20 minutes). I remember you have a three part series by a female dentist. Isn't her Youtube account name Ewing or some such name? Then I think you had dentist Gerald Smith's 2010 IOAMT presentation, an insightful one, most of which is on teeth alignment relative to (and a couple other dentistry nuggets on) systemic health.

"Pull out" means

I'm going to transfer those videos from the "Dental Procedures" section to their own section about cavitations. "Dental Procedures" was the original section before I created the "Oral Health" category. Much of the new "Protocol For Safe Amalgam Removal & Dental Revision" section is Huggins' content which I transferred from the "Dental Procedures" section. The "Dental Procedures" section currently acts as a general holding area as I divide its content up into their own sections.

This should give people a better birds-eye-view from the table of contents as to what's in the "Oral Health" category and the main topics/people in Holistic Dentistry.

Book Lists whose books are in order of importance (as you asked)

List A (the essentials):

1) Death and Dentistry (1940) by Martin H. Fischer, MD
2) Beyond Amalgam: The Hidden Health Problems Posed by Jawbone Cavitations, second (and last) edition by Susan Stockton, MA
3) Root Canal Cover-up by George Meinig, DDS and co-founder of American Association of Endodontists
4) Solving the MS Mystery by Hal A. Huggins, DDS, MS
5) The Roots of Disease by Robert Kulacz, DDS, and Thomas Levy, MD, JD. Forwarded by actor James Earl Jones.
6) Dental Infections, Oral and Systemic (vol.1) and Dental Infection and the Degenerative Diseases (vol.2) (1924) by Weston Andrew Price, DDS, MS, FACD and founder and chairman of the National Dental Association which became the research department of the American Dental Association on its creation. Each volume has halves, totaling four parts in this set at 1,174 pages. This book is rare if not impossible to find. But copies of it can be purchased at ppnf.org.
7) Abstracts of Steinman available at Huggins' website. A pamphlet compilation of dentist Ralph R. Steinman's abstracts on the endocrine system of the tooth. Steinman discovered blood and lymph enters the tooth through its roots and travels through the accessory canals and exits the tooth at its enamel. This circulation is nutritive and cleansing. On page 1: With Dr. John Leonar, [Dr. Steinman] discovered the hypothalamic-parotid gland endocrine axis which controls the rate of fluid movement in dentin. This axis plays a major role in the physiological activity in the tooth and [that] when it fails the tooth is subject to dental caries. He has published several articles on this and related subjects. (Amazing, isn't it, still, that there's a causal relationship between a tooth and a gland, that the latter affects the former and, likely, that the former affects the latter? Although I think dentistry didn't affect my hypothalmus, dentistry did affect my thyroid gland, creating three nodules on it. I'm confident those nodules were amalgam deposits. And as far as I know, my thyroid has returned to normal.)
8) Dental Self Help by Soaring Bear. This book discusses nutrition the individual can use to cure oral problems such as cavities. NOTE: This book could be above Steinman's pamphlet because it is practical, something the reader can apply to himself, whereas the Steinman compilation is talked about (although little) in Huggins' Solving which covers his two other (main) books' basic information but mostly consists of new information.

List B (old news such as amalgam fillings are harmful and only mention or is absent root canals and implants cause ill health):

1) Uninformed Consent by Hal A. Huggins, DDS, MS
2) It's All in Your Head by Hal A. Huggins, DDS, MS
3) Whole Body Dentistry by Mark A. Breiner, DDS
4) Tooth Truth by Frank J. Jerome, DDS. The author of this book removes dead bone in the jaw by drilling through gum into the bone and suctioning and, possibly, scraping out the dead bone whether it's calcified or soupy. How scraping is done when excavation is from burrowing straight (and narrow?) must be difficult, and if it is difficult, successful conditions -- where what remains is no periodontal ligament, fresh bone and blood flow into the surgery site that dwindles on its own before the gum flaps made at the start of surgery are "unflapped" into place and sewn together -- likely is uncommon. During suctioning and scraping, a gentle stream of clean (probably distilled) water should be used in and near the site to aid in removing debris including bone fragments. Salt water could benefit cleaning of the site and it can reduce or eliminate swelling even of bone cells. Ohio dentist Wesley Shankland, who performed the first surgery on me, uses a solution of water and something I forgot that cleans surgery sites. Yes, the first surgery on me. I've had a few. He did an outstanding job except he made a mistake, one I couldn't believe he made because it is profound. That link should take you to the bottom of that post where my initial comment, the first comment, is.

Another account. I remember this post. I recall Dean's wife, the author of it, wrote that comment. Digital x-rays deliver 90-plus percent less radiation than traditional x-ray machines. Here's a comment from Dean, DPer punkskaguy. I found it and many more comments of his about his jaw by typing punkskaguy and jaw into DP's search pane. I recall Dean commented his mouth developed pustules, sores and other problems. In that comment or one like it, I remember he said puss was coming from sores he had on his face located in the jaw area. Notice in one of his or his wife's comments that he had seen a head and neck oncologist for a growth on his neck, then had a (digital?) x-ray taken of his jaws that showed necrosis and that his jaws were fractured and teeth removed (likely improperly and using blood vessel constricting anesthesias). Fractured jaws -- former boxer and Parkinson's poster boy Muhammed Ali. Oral health, important.

Hey, still, can't talk now.

Hey, still, can't talk now. About to go to work. Sorry for taking three weeks to reply. I've been busy since then. I'll get to you my first day off in a while, Friday, or my next day off, whenever that is. Yes, Tooth Truth is redundant, but why I would leave it on the list is because I would want the reader to look it over for himself because he might read something important that I found unimportant and he might discover something relevant to him . But, yes, my opinion about it compared to all the other books is it is redundant and discusses fillers as though they're beneficial. Fillers are harmful. They must be avoided. I'll list the books soon and try to get back to you Friday. About what you said below, yes, I can and do sift through information, distilling what's what -- what's good, what's bad. All right, then, still, see you round and happy new year.

It's like you're reading my mind~ :-) *Edit*

I was thinking along the same lines. If you have the time that would be great. In some sections of my post I am very extensive and add many links in order to tease out all of the nuances of a topic. In others I am very careful and conservative, limiting my own commentary as well as the quantity of material I post, preferring instead to direct people to professionals who can carefully and precisely guide people in the correct order and timing of what they should or shouldn't do.

You and I probably have the ability to cautiously read material and extract the gems we need while dispensing with the rest of what an author with a particularly narrow specialty writes about. We are not influenced by persuasive or authoritative writing style and don't passively accept everything an author says. Others may not have that ability and may rush off and do something drastic. Some subjects don't allow for much trial and error. Dentistry is one such subject because even small changes in the mouth can have immense ramifications (often permanent) on the health.

Case in point: Dr. Mercola damaged his kidneys in the 90s by having his amalgams removed without having the proper protections in place. He said the dentist was supposed to be knowledgeable in how to safely do it as well. If it can happen to him, it can happen to most people.

So, what I had in mind is to build the dentistry section using the principle of "less is more" where we err on the side of caution. We'll have a couple broad experts like Huggins, Fischer, or Meinig who have surveyed the available literature. On different specialty areas they probably defer to particular specialists. In those situations, we link to articles that they have written about those specialists.

With the book descriptions I prefer to use quotes directly from the book, book cover, or maybe what the author (or our "broad expert") says about their book. I'll probably add "Notes" later at the beginning of the list, covering any precautions to take, but I want to mostly defer to our broad experts, who in turn can direct people where to go. Also, I think I want to lean to experts who use non-invasive techniques where possible instead of getting excited about the latest "alternative" technique. In some situations it may be best to do nothing. I'll also include simple and inexpensive preventative practices as well. Ex. I've added Oil Pulling & may add Tongue Scraping later.

Btw, I'll probably change the heading from "alternative" to something more specific yet comprehensive. Something giving the idea of "best practices" (given our current imperfect knowledge). "Truthful" might be more accurate, but I don't think alternative dentistry has developed to the stage where it can claim that level of accuracy. Maybe we can use a heading that is a little more formal as well.

Anyway, these are my thoughts. Let's focus on List A then maybe we can carefully think about whether or not we want to include anything in List B.

It sure does. It sure does.

It sure does. It sure does. Seems as though it was yesterday I was in my backyard sawing and wiring to put that baby together. Hard to believe that was summer 2012. Gees.

Oh, yeah, the list is coming today or tomorrow.

Hello abba. I can't talk about it but I will write about it.

My neighbors are dog folks. They have 3-7 cattle dogs at any given time. Their own, rescue dogs, etc. Not my kind of dog. They live in crates much of the time. Unfriendly. But hey they are democrats. They like things penned up. One day Mike told me about giving a worming medicine to his herd of dogs. I asked about it and he said the medicine kills the worms and they come out dead in the feces of the dog within a few days. A few days later he saw me and said "come look". He lifted the lid on his potty can and shoveled out some poop and there they were; long, white, dead worms buried in the poop and hanging out. He said the dogs are born with them and they can also pick them up when eating in the dirt.

So I started thinking of the natural way to rid my dog and cat of these types of worms. BTW I feed Luke and Kit raw food. Chicken livers, hard boiled eggs, butter, coconut oil, ground meats, raw chicken (bones and all) pork everything and yes with bones. No grains and little cooked meats. Some raw vegetables and they both get cod liver oil (CLO).

Soooo it is a difficult job and i'll explain it here. Ready? You sprinkle it on the food. They eat it. No licking around it and the theory is that it acts to cut the worms in the animal's digestive system. I also sprinkle DE in the cats litter box as it supposed to cut up fleas that may hang out there. I treat neither with any poison flea medicine and I use no flea bombs.

We adopted Luke in the summer of 2011. My daughters and I visited the pet store that had a rescue group bring in dogs that no one wanted. We went 2-3 times and scoped them out. Rather than go right in and pick a dog I wanted my girls to get the full meal deal and I also enjoyed the process (my daughters are adopted too). We looked and talked and finally took one for a test drive in the parking lot. A 1 year old doberman/hound mix. 65 lbs with floppy ears and full tail. He drug my youngest (we have never had a dog) through the store and out the door and the first thing he did was crap a large runny, smelly poop on a bush just outside the door. We took the "free" bag of food that came with Lukee and have used a cup or so. We went right to raw food and we went from a dog with large smelly poops and little shedding to a smaller, less smelly poop that shed like crazy! I suspected that this was a transition and sure enough the shedding stopped after a few weeks to a month. So now we have an energetic, strong, pleasant, small poop with virtually no smell dawg that sheds very little. Tiny amount.

The benefit of raw food for cats? In 2006 while my wife was in Italy meeting with her friend to discuss the finer points of divorcing her husband (me) our cat (Kit) became ill. Teeth hanging out, loose. Very skinny and scratching like crazy. Me home alone with 2 young daughters and a broken water heater and I took the cat to a vet. They shook their head and took her in and pulled loose teeth and gave her shots and came out and said she was bad off and she would have to come back and have more teeth pulled and others cleaned and more shots. I started reading and started her on raw food. DE too. It has been 7 years and 7 years is a long time for a cat to live that was in as bad of shape as she was. She still puts fear in the dog when required.

Thanks for the info on the sauna. I haven't got the enclosure built yet but I placed my 4 lamp light panel securely on the bathroom floor and did a coffee enema under its glow. I had never thought of how pleasant the red light is. Its got something. I'll get the enclosure made over the next week and then it be sweat city. I understand that lead comes out smelling sweet so here we go.

Remember The doctor is in. In you.

Anyway more than you wanted to know? More than the NSA wanted to know? Maybe


Deworm Comment, a Thank You

Just want to say thanks for your reply. I've been meaning to get back to you. I up arrowed your post to signal I read it. I understand that signal could've been missed, because how can anyone tell who voted (and it should stay that way). Anyway, thank you for it. It's informative and I'll return to it when flea season returns, a little before spring. Because you're a person who cares about health, I thought I'd let you know about the truthful dentistry book list I typed out. It's a little above our conversation. It's to stillwater. He's gonna put it in his historic health post. Just thought that information could help ya. Thanks, TDIN. :)
