Vaccine Resistance Movement is a grass roots, non-profit organization striving for safe alternatives to vaccines; both empowering citizens around the world with the means of self sufficiency while determined to expose vaccine fraud & pharmaceutical industry malfeasance. This study is the culmination of two years of inspired research, energized with the support of a growing community of responsible activists learning how to stand independent of Corporate & Government misdirection.
Hypothesis: It is our goal, through this study, to determine an accurate percentage of those unvaccinated autistic children & adults vs. those unvaccinated children & adults who have not become autistic. Essentially what we are trying to identify is the healthy trend in unvaccinated children & adults. Based on the Centre For Disease Control's 'Recommended Immunization Schedule for Persons Aged 0 Through 6 Years—United States • 2010' we are also charting the common denominators in those vaccinated children & adults who became autistic (ie. vaccines received, dietary issues, family health problems, breast/bottle feeding) vs. those vaccinated children & adults who did not become autistic (diet, family health history cross referenced, breast/bottle feeding). As this is a worldwide census type study it is felt the CDC 0-6 model comes closest to an official standard to which most nations subscribe. Variables nation-nation (ie. particulars of vaccine schedule) will be noted accordingly. An 'Additional Comments' category will accompany each section for any discrepancies.
Just to clarify this study is open to EVERYONE. The absence of autism in your family/household or the fact you haven't vaccinated your children does not preclude you from taking part in the study. The control parameters are wide open this time. All the data we receive will be pertinent in determining the paths that lead to autism. VRM will be continuing to collect your invaluable data for as long as possible. That being said we still encourage everyone to enroll in the study while it's openly available.
Due to the complex nature of Autism spectrum disorder a formal definition will be helpful in establishing the parameters of our study; while differentiating the co-factors from other similar conditions. The CDC defines Autism as follows:
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of developmental disabilities that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. People with ASDs handle information in their brain differently than other people.
ASDs are “spectrum disorders.” That means ASDs affect each person in different ways, and can range from very mild to severe. People with ASDs share some similar symptoms, such as problems with social interaction. But there are differences in when the symptoms start, how severe they are, and the exact nature of the symptoms.
There are three different types of ASDs:
Autistic Disorder (also called “classic” autism)
This is what most people think of when hearing the word “autism.” People with autistic disorder usually have significant language delays, social and communication challenges, and unusual behaviors and interests. Many people with autistic disorder also have intellectual disability.
People with Asperger syndrome usually have some milder symptoms of autistic disorder. They might have social challenges and unusual behaviors and interests. However, they typically do not have problems with language or intellectual disability.
Pervasive Developmental Disorder (also called “atypical autism” or PDD-NOS)
People who meet some of the criteria for autistic disorder or Asperger syndrome, but not all, may be diagnosed with PDD-NOS. People with PDD-NOS usually have fewer and milder symptoms than those with autistic disorder. The symptoms might cause only social and communication challenges.
ASDs begin before the age of 3 and last throughout a person's life, although symptoms may improve over time. Some children with an ASD show hints of future problems within the first few months of life. In others, symptoms might not show up until 24 months or later. Some children with an ASD seem to develop normally until around 18 to 24 months of age and then they stop gaining new skills, or they lose the skills they once had.
A person with an ASD might:
Based on a notable case study detailing one fully vaccinated child's decent into full blown regressive autism, a more detailed analysis of symptoms than that published by the CDC is possible:
Early onset autism occurs anywhere from 12-18 months, potentially even earlier. It is significant that autism coincides precisely with most intense period of standard immunization. According to the CDC'S 'Recommended Immunization Schedule for Persons Aged 0 Through 6 Years—United States • 2010' by 15 months the average child has received 25 injections including: 3 doses of Hepatitis B, Rotavirus, HIB (Haemophilus Influenzae Type b), IPV (Inactivated Polio Vaccine) & Hepatitis A, 4 doses of DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus) & PCV (Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine), 1 dose of Varicella & Meningococcal and 2 doses of MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella). We hope to clarify not only the immunization time-line factor in relation to the emergence of autism but also the nature of specific vaccines; as to their bearing on each select case of autism reported.
Family health history as it pertains to the occurrence of autism will be noted. Statistically speaking, pre-existing medical conditions, genetic inheritance, ancestral traits (susceptibility to disease, illness, vaccine related trauma, dietary issues in the family line) may increase the likelihood of autism occurring. Dr. Russell Blaylock, a renowned Brain Surgeon/Neurologist has noted, “Heavy metals & viruses in vaccines cause abnormal development in brain, long-term changes that put a child at high risk of neuro-degenerative diseases ie. Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s for the rest of their life; also they become hyper-sensitive to environmental toxins (Pesticides, Herbicides). Live viruses in vaccines are incorporated into your genetic material & passed on to your children." What is now termed 'Multiple Chemical Sensitivities' is an increasingly common manifestation of this system-wide breakdown.
Our study will include ADD/ADHD as co-factors of autism. While not officially linked diagnostically the similarities between Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism spectrum disorders, (especially Asperger's Syndrome) such as delayed social & motor skills, plus extreme sensitivity to sensory stimuli, the same deficiencies that autism has suggests a commonality of symptoms. Boys are also four times more likely to have ADHD and four times more likely to have autism than girls.
Many researchers have also determined a strong correlation between autism & diet. While there is certainly controversy over the merits of this argument our study will encompass diet as a primary co-factor (ie. use of sugar, iodized salt, gluten, casein, poly-saturated fats).
In order to guarantee accuracy of the data acquired study participants must allow for access to family medical records (*Note: only in cases where autism has occurred). This disclosure will be entirely confidential in nature and at the discretion of the study organizers. Any shared information will be used strictly to confirm an autism diagnosis. No data beyond that which the family agrees to disclose shall be included in the study results.
All participants in this study will be designated a number to assure complete anonymity. Any sensitive information including family names, personal references, e-mail addresses etc will be inaccessible to the public. Only study administrators will be privy to access. Contact will remain exclusively confidential between participants & VRM. At any time a participant may withdraw from the study group; whereupon their data will be returned to them and/or destroyed.
To summarize: The purpose of this worldwide study is to determine the incidence/rate of autism amongst those unvaccinated children & adults surveyed. We are also concurrently tracking the incidence/rate of autism amongst those vaccinated children & adults surveyed; cross-referencing dietary factors, pre-existing medical conditions/allergies, family health/vaccine history (multiple generations), breast/bottle feeding, We hope to gain new insights into the causality & manifestations of autism with an exhaustive, scientific approach.
NOTE: All age groups & nationalities are being considered in this study. Families may include every member of the household. Parents representing their child/children are asked to provide the current age of child in question and as many pertinent details as possible throughout the survey. Otherwise please apply your own adult case history to the survey. One participant per survey. Any questions pertaining to the parameters or any other aspects of the study please contact VRM Administration : http://
Your financial contributions, regardless of the amount, will help finance the whole operation; from development stages to worldwide promotion, ultimately to charting, logging, & cross-referencing the deluge of study responses anticipated. This is an exciting, groundbreaking project, one we feel will help redefine society's understanding of the paths that lead to Autism.
