Not sure when I'll be posting again. We have to get things moved in and hooked up. (I'm sure my blogging addiction won't be kept at bay for long though).
I'm leaving you with something about the Federal Autism Hearing presently underway.
I recieved this e-mail from Anne McElroy Dachel,in a thread through Kim Stagliano's Yahoo Group (Thank you Kim for your wonderful group. Thank you Anne for permission to reprint your terrific letter). At the end I'll post another link to a recent rally at the CDC also lifted from the bio-med group, thanks Debbie). Dr. Mark Grier is one of the researchers from David Kirby's book Evidence of Harm. Like so many who have stood up for the truth he has made great sacrifices. For instance, there is a team of high powered attorneys (nine of them, I think) who are devoting their lives to destroying Riley's doctor (the one who has helped her so much and has given our famiy a new life by treating Riley through bio-med interventions). She will testify in the federal hearing in August. Nine of them. They get to work on this full time, while she continues to practice, treating kids. Intimidating? I should say.
But, David killed Goliath. Big tobacco went down. The truth always has out in the end.
The Universe is benevolent.
God loves us.
All is well.
Thank you for reading my blog.
See ya in Ohio!

Autism: Why The Debate Rages
CBS News - New York City , NY , USA
In 2004, the Institute of Medicine Report cleared vaccines of a connection
to autism, or so they thought. It only served to enrage advocates. The
research was flawed and manipulated. Anything that challenged the IOM's
conclusions, was ignored.
Here CBS correspondent Sharyl Attkisson outlines why this controversy will
not go away. It also tells us why parents are pressing on to argue their
claims in federal court at the moment. Sharyl lists her seven reasons and
explains each in detail.
1. While government scientists, advisors and pharmaceutical companies have
been responsible for infinite lifesaving and life improving medical
advances, they are not infallible.
2. Government scientists, advisors and vaccine manufacturers often take an
all-or-nothing approach to vaccinations.
3. Government officials and mainstream scientists who dispel any
vaccine/autism/ADD link have ties to vaccine.
4. Non-profits which dispel any vaccine/autism/ADD link have ties to vaccine
5. The dual role of the CDC undermines the appearance of fairness.
6. There is no definitive research proving a link between vaccines and
autism or ADD, but there is also no definitive research ruling it out.
7. Those who say autism and ADD are not linked to vaccines do not know what
is causing the epidemics.
It's important to keep in mind that the agencies in our federal government
who deny a link between autism and vaccines, have everything at stake in
their position. It is impossible for many of the people there to even
consider the possibility that through complete oversight failure, a
generation of children has been exposed to toxic elements in their vaccines
with devastating results.
We need the press to cover this crisis thoroughly and fairly. Thousands of
parents have seen the coverage of the federal hearing on vaccine damage now
being held in Washington and are outraged. On a daily basis, news sources
everywhere have continually reported that scientific studies deny a link
when talking about the Cedillo case now being hear. That biased and
misleading statement seems to reduce parents to having only wild speculation
on the cause of their child's autism. Nearly 5,000 claims of vaccine damage
would not be getting their day in court if they didn't also have studies,
leading experts and medical documentation to back up the claims. You would
never know this from the one-sided reporting we're seeing everywhere.
On the issue of mercury use in vaccines, story after story tell us that they
stopped putting mercury in vaccines in 1999 or 2000. Since autism rates
continue to climb, experts say it proves there's no connection. Each time I
see this information in print, I'm amazed that such a blatant false
statement is put out. Even if reporters don't bother to research the
information they present as fact, countless parents know the truth. It took
years for the vaccine makers to start making reduced mercury vaccines and no
vaccines were ever recalled. Thousands were still on doctors' shelves in
2004. Furthermore, 90 percent of the flu vaccine still contains full doses
of mercury and this vaccine is recommended for babies and pregnant women.
As this controversy continues to explode, the press needs to report the
facts honestly. Few reporters have the background and courage to present
the truth. Having Sharyl Attkisson report on this for CBS Evening News
would seem the smart thing to do. She's a very rare and informed
