The hoax at the bottom of Autism and Alzheimer’s

The hoax at the bottom of Autism and Alzheimer’s

by Jon Rappoport

March 22, 2013

For the medical cartel, Autism and Alzheimer’s are big, big business. Profits are soaring.

These two conditions are promoted as specific diseases. That’s where all the trouble starts.

If you read the Alzheimer’s and Autism definitions, which are the criteria for diagnosis contained in the psychiatric Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), you find there are no physical tests of any kind.

No blood tests, no saliva tests, no urine tests, no genetic tests, no brain scans.

Instead, what you see are lists and menus of behaviors.

What does this mean?

First of all, it means researchers haven’t found the cause of these conditions. If they had, they would state it.

So how do you say you’ve located a specific disease if you don’t know the cause? Answer: you can’t.

Take four people who are 70 years old and are experiencing severe memory loss. You’re a researcher. You don’t know why these people have this problem. You can guess, you can talk about maybe-this or maybe-that, but you don’t know.

Therefore, you can’t say the cause of the memory loss in each case is the same. It might well be different for each person.

Should you make up a label like Alzheimer’s and slap it on all four people? Of course not. A single label means a single cause. Otherwise, why use the label?

But you don’t know the cause. No matter how many behavioral characteristics of memory loss you name, you don’t know the cause.

Therefore, you have no business applying a single label to those four people. That’s not science. It might be marketing for drugs, it might be a lot of things, it might be about obtaining grant monies, but it isn’t science.

Take four young children who have suddenly withdrawn from the world. Same principle applies. If you slap them with the Autism label, you’re lying. You don’t know the cause of that withdrawal in any of the children.

Now, if you were the parent of one of these children, and you noticed that soon after the child was stuck with multiple vaccines, he developed a fever and then he withdrew from the world, you would, indeed, know something vital.

But if you’re an unbiased researcher a thousand miles away from these four children, all you know, at the outset, is that they all withdrew.

In two cases, the cause might have been vaccination. In another case, it might have been severe and chronic malnutrition or a reaction to heavy metals in food. In another case, the child might have developed a brain lesion. There are a number of possibilities.

Why then slap all four children with the label Autism?

Just because they exhibit the same general characteristic? That’s patently ridiculous.

Let’s take this a step farther. Suppose you had a group of 500 children, all of whom withdrew and folded up after receiving a load of vaccine. You know these vaccines contain toxins. You know the toxins were injected. You know the toxins can cause neurological damage.

Well, what are you waiting for? These are cases of VACCINE DAMAGE. It’s not Autism caused by vaccine damage. It’s not Autism or Cd3syt or Vcti45 or any other arbitrary label. It’s not a disease or a disorder. It’s poisoning. Do you say a person who develops a severe and chronic problem after eating fish loaded with poison has a disease? Is it the fish-eating disease?

Of course, we know that exonerating vaccines keeps a giant industry from destruction. And we know that putting a disease label on people opens the door to enormous profits. Drug-company profits. “Well, we’re researching several promising medicines for Autism…”

You don’t hear, “We’re investigating remedies for vaccine poisoning and exposure to industrial pollutants.”

Alzheimer’s researchers are very fond of talking about “biomarkers” and “imaging.” They keep testing blood and the spinal fluid. But they don’t know enough to include the results of those tests in the official definition of Alzheimer’s.

And think about this: suppose one biomarker finally emerges as a common denominator in a study examining 5000 people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s? Who is to say the cause of that biomarker is the same in all 5000 people? This is not a trivial point. It’s crucial.

If, for example, chemicals can cause genetic changes, and then cancer researchers hail “new genetic findings in investigating the cause of cancer,” at what level are they plugging into the true situation? If they keep ignoring the chemicals, how far are they going to get?

Researchers and the press keep promoting a fairy tale: “If we diagnose people who show the same behavioral factors with a single disease label, and if we keep examining these people for common biomarkers, we’ll find the cause of the disease.”

Well, look at the DSM. It contains 297 official disorders, all labeled. Many of these so-called disorders have been investigated for decades. And yet, not one disorder lists a specific across-the-board diagnostic test that can define it.

Taking all this to a conclusion, we have this: there is no reason to suppose that Alzheimer’s or Autism exists.

Damage exists. And there are cogent reasons to infer that, in different individuals, the causes are different.

Therefore, what we need are very capable and independent-minded health practitioners who can investigate one patient at a time and find out what really caused his/her problem.

That is why, when somebody tells me he’s found the cause of Alzheimer’s or Autism, and the cure, I know he’s on the wrong track. He failed to notice that these conditions don’t exist. Damage exists.

In the alternative field, I’ve read journal articles that begin: “New discovery may revolutionize the treatment of Alzheimer’s…”

The author of the article was bamboozled. He accepted the idea that Alzheimer’s was a single disease. His opening sentence should have read: “New discovery may revolutionize the treatment of that thing that doesn’t exist…”

Then he and everybody else would see the error.

Damage exists. Memory loss exists. Withdrawing from the world exists. Suffering exists. Pain exists. Finding what caused it in a single patient, one at a time, is a step toward healing.

And healing is what it’s supposed to be all about.

The correct metaphor here is the detective. Suppose he says, “Well, we have a murder, and we know that murder is caused by bullets. So we’ll find the bullets and that will constitute the solution to the case.”

The detective investigates each case on its own facts and merits. He brings a wealth of experience to his work. He knows patterns in murders. He knows what sometimes turns out to be the answer. He applies what he knows. He uses clues. He uses logic. He tries one avenue, and if it doesn’t pan out, he embarks on another avenue. He keeps looking. He provisionally uses generalities, but he also avoids them. This is called intelligence. It’s called discernment. It’s called caring about finding the truth.

If genuine healing were the objective, practitioners would approach so-called Alzheimer’s and Autism patients very differently.

The fact that most medical doctors don’t is, at the very least, criminal negligence.

Back in the 1990’s, I interviewed the mother of a boy who had been diagnosed with Autism. He wasn’t a case of vaccine damage, because he’d never been vaccinated.

His health practitioner, during an extensive conversation with the mother, did discover a forgotten head injury at the age of three. The boy was now 16.

The practitioner tried a course of hyperbaric oxygen treatments, based on the hypothesis that some brain cells were in an “idling state,” and had never awakened after the injury. The treatments helped somewhat. The boy became a bit more communicative.

The practitioner then shifted the boy’s diet several times, and in the process found out he was having a severe and chronic reaction to milk and other dairy products. So they were eliminated from the diet. After a month, the boy came a bit more out of his shell. His awkward physical movements lessened.

Supplementation with minerals produced further results. The boy’s speech cleared up gradually. He mumbled less. His spoke more forcefully.

At this point, for the first time, the boy was willing to undertake a light exercise program. After a month or so, it produced dividends. His muscle tone improved, and he enjoyed short runs. He’d return from these runs with fierce enthusiasm. He was happy that his coordination was increasing.

Several new supplement protocols were tried. One of them included a meal-replacement drink that he liked. He came further out of his shell. His mother began home schooling him. His writing was no longer a dense scribble. He could focus on his work.

The boy went through another series of hyperbaric oxygen treatments. This time the results were more visible. His face, which tended to be mask-like, relaxed. He became more animated.

The supplement regime was enhanced with a ginseng adaptogen and a different type of magnesium. The boy received several adjustments from a chiropractor, who had been trained in the original techniques of the art.

The Matrix Revealed

A month later, the boy’s communication with his parents and his neighbors reached a new level. He had recovered a significant part of his life.

I asked the practitioner whether he would apply that entire course of treatment across the board for all children diagnosed with Autism.

Absolutely not,” he said. “I don’t do ‘across-the-board’ anything.”

When I told a doctor what happened to this boy, he said, “It wasn’t Autism to begin with. He was misdiagnosed. It was a head injury.”

No,” I said. “Nothing is Autism.”

He stared at me and then he smiled. “I know where you’re going with this,” he said.


Yeah,” he said. “They don’t have a cause for Autism.”

So they have no right to say it’s a disease with a single cause.”

He scratched his head and walked away.

There is yet another reason the medical cartel wants to maintain this fiction about Autism and Alzheimer’s. It’s about controlling the research, of course. Keeping a lid on the fact that chemicals and inserted genes in the food supply; water contaminated with chemicals, including fluorides; heavy-metal particles sprayed in the skies; radiation; vaccines; medical drugs; industrial pollution and dumping; and other factors have been producing the symptoms of what is being called Autism and Alzheimer’s.

Covering all that up is a major priority. One dirty hand washes another.

    Time out, Alzheimer’s is caused by many things. One of the principle causes is the sodium fluoride they put into drinking water, which causes the formation of aluminum placates in the brain resulting in electrical short circuits. Another cause is a vitamin and mineral deficient diet, which is the result of modern farming techniques and the proliferation of “fast” food.

    How about that neurotoxin aspartame, or the mercury in vaccines, or the prevalence of microwave radiation, etc… . So called modern society is filled with a non stop barrage of poisons. If you do not live in a monastery, or spend a hell of a lot of time and care for your health, then unless you die young, you will probably end up as a drooling f$*king mess that needs someone to wipe the s#&t off your ass every time you crap.

  2. jim says:

    By the way, there are very “strong” correlations between thimerosal and autism, as the number of cases of autism is directly correlated with the rise in the number of vaccinations children receive in an exponential manner, or number of autism cases is proportional to exp(number of vaccinations). People who avoid vaccinations have almost no cases of children with autism.

  3. Thinker says:

    Thanks Jon. This is exactly right. The one-size-fits-all label of autism is about vaccine damage, and for alzheimers, depression and adhd, Look UP at your weird skies and aluminum haze air – .People need to not only wake up and look up but tell others to do the same.
    Between that and those who keep buying gmo poison, it seems the ignorance of the many is costing the rest of us our very existence. Share what you know, now.

  4. katykat says:

    As a person whose seen numerous members of my family helped through functional medicine, I wholeheartedly agree with you. On the flip side, I my in-laws are “establishment” doctors and I can only describe their behavior as militant in how they protect their psuedo-science based medicine

  5. ramonthomas says:

    This should give hope to all parents who have children diagnosed with Autism. For most of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s it may be too late. I will share this information with parents in South Africa.

  6. Chris says:

    I’m taking a child development class and according to a few new moms, they can test to see if the baby has autism just by looking at ultrasound or they run tests before the baby’s even born to see.. This one mom even admitted that when she was in labor, the doctor made her agree to testing. Made her? Or slipped in during drugged up who am I time and asked her real quick?

  7. wouldabeenthespian says:

    This conversation on Australian radio gives a great understanding of the entire invention of the psychiatric industry. It is 50 minutes long and takes a bit to get into that part as it also takes apart personality testing and it effect on ‘soft skills’ like getting on well with others over ‘hard skills’ like having the best ideas .. Really ties in with this article.

  8. Jon says:

    I have a child with what I believe to be a vaccine induced brain injury. She has many symptoms from many different “medical diagnosis.” Her systems are behavioral but also many are physical. From a practical point of view I will tell you that many so-called top experts have seen her and are perplexed. In our journey to help her recover all we ever heard was “she does not qualify as she does meet the criteria for this diagnosis or that diagnosis.” Her social skills disqualify her for a DSM-IV determination and thus shuts her out of a myriad of programs that offer assistance and help to parents and their children.

    I actually have all but begged for an ASD Diagnosis to open those doors of opportunity for her both at school and in the community. As a result of playing “their game” my daughter can now walk on her feet and NOT on her knees, she is learning to communicate via sign language as she cannot speak, she is learning to communicate via an IPad, her behaviors are lessening, and she is week on the road to recovery. We noticed the difference after only one round of vaccines and have stopped them after that. My other 2 children have never had a vaccine and are just being accepted into the gifted program at school. Please stop the poison that the medical and the food industry are filling us with and do what you can to avoid drugs and mainstream processed crap they call food. That said, DO NOT fear a pseudo title of autism in a pseudo world of misinformation. DO avoid any pseudo drugs they prescribe as THE ANSWER and go back to natural food.

    “The fact that most medical doctors don’t is, at the very least, criminal negligence.”

    But is it more than negligence?

    There is a legal term “Barratry”

    Definition of ‘Barratry’
    An illegal act whereby an attorney instigates a dispute or otherwise encourages the filing of a lawsuit, in order to profit from legal fees. Barratry typically involves the filing of a groundless claim in order to receive payment from clients. It is an illegal practice in all U.S. states and subject to criminal punishment and discipline by the state bar. An attorney found guilty of barratry would generally face disbarment.

    since the medical world should (and most likely DO) know the causes of autism and alzheimers, do nothing about it and profit greatly from staying quiet, are they not involved in Medical Barratry?

  10. Thinker says:

    tom – I appreciate where you are going, but it would simply be called medical malpractice. But in the US today, medical malpractice is now limited to what you can prove against corrupt or at least poorly informed doktors, using a legal system now largely designed to protect them, and financially benefit lawyers.

    The answer is to tell others what we know. We know the medical system is corrupt, it’s up to us to inform others so we All ‘just say no’ to their bs pharma scams and vaccines. Btw, the only good thing I can say about the air poison happening is that corrupt, sellout doktors are getting it too. * See my comment Above.

  11. Bob Oldwyn says:

    Thank you Jon. It is easier to sell a lie than to give the truth away. Up hill battle all the way. Keep up the good work you are appreciated.

  12. jruss45 says:

    As you have said, there are many toxins that can damage the brain. There are also many deficiencies that can cause memory loss. Mercury, Fluorine, Aluminum, Aspartame, etc. have already been mentioned. RounUp Ready foods do not provide the cobalt needed to form vitamin B-12 that is essential for cell replication that is necessary for new memory. The glyphosate in RoundUp can prevent our bodies from making B-12. The insulation on the neurons in our brain is cholesterol. Satins can reduce cholesterol to the point that will “short circuit” the brain. Weaponized Mycoplasmas [that have been released into our environment] can also cause neurosystemic diseases. . And we have not even covered allergic responses created by “stuff” in the colon getting into our blood by holes created by, for example, the Bt-toxin in GMO “food”. http://Opinion.FarTooMuch.Info/GMHC.htm .

    Jon, a great article as always. You should meet and talk with Sharry Edwards of the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology. She is on Blogtalk and appears regularly on Dr. Rima laibow’s shows. Please check out her work at

  14. Gary Jordan says:

    Jon, The marriage of Psychiatry and Big Pharma is the devil’s wedding, and they have adopted general medicine (not that it was much good before). The cure is continued truth of the cause as you so ably stated. The psychs have been at it for at least 75 years but before 1938 they used drugs to atain shock to the brain. So even though ECT is still used to some degree they are back on drugs again. If you can’t get it right, try, try, try… Keep up the fight Jon!

  15. shadowmasterminds says:

    Autism (and by extension, Aspergers), ADD (or ADHD), Alzhimer’s, and any other “disability” is something only [crimminals] would make up just to make a buck.

  16. PC says:

    Just a little info. The human brain actually shows physical changes with Alzheimer’s. So the diagnosis can be proven with a pet scan it ct scan.
