Flu vaccine injures cheerleader; “autism quack” brings her back

Desiree Jennings, a Washington Redskins cheerleader, took a seasonal flu shot in the summer. Days later she developed muscle dystonia, suffering seizures and uncontrollable muscle twitching that disabled her totally–unless she was jogging or walking backward. So strange. I saw a video about her online not too long ago.

Generation Rescue organizers saw it too and referred her to a controversial autism practitioner who has helped her tremendously. This is Rashid Buttar, MD, of Charlotte, NC, who is no longer affiliated with Defeat Autism Now! (DAN) and has some unusual protocols, even for autism practitioners.  His high fees draw fire, along with his controversial practices and lack of traditional certifications.

But in Desiree’s case, he has proven his value. In the intervening time, she got a lot worse; in fact, by the time she got to Dr. Buttar she appeared to be dying of acute respiratory distress, according to Fox News. Using hyperbaric oxygen chambers and IV administration of nutrients, he treated her, and she got a lot better.  The problem was a toxic reaction to the shot, including mercury toxicity, he told Fox News.  He expects her to fully recover with continued treatment.

The Web sites I looked up that mention Dr. Buttar contain some fairly incendiary language.  He is particularly criticized for charging high fees.

What this whole debate needs is some basic information so we can stop slinging mud and look at the facts. I am hoping someone will do the study I have been calling for: comparing autism outcomes for vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations. As I noted in my last post, a study similar to that WAS done– looking for increase in allergies, asthma, eczema, and hay fever in vaccinated populations. In fact they found a statistically significant increase in those conditions.

Vaccines are NOT proven safe. The basic research on them has NOT been done. Let’s do it.


Generation Rescue on Larry King Live tomorrow, Saturday

I just got an email from Generation Rescue, the organization trying to bring the autism epidemic to the public’s attention.  GR spokesperson Jenny McCarthy (an actress who has just written a book about her son’s recovery from autism, married to Jim Carrey) will be on Larry King Live with some other people.  We can tune in on CNN and even join the conversation. The broadcast will be at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST.

They are expected to discuss vaccine dangers, and how to treat and prevent autism.  Your newborn boy has a one in 96 chance of being autistic.  That’s far too big!!

Personally I think our doctors need to decide whether they are part of the solution, or part of the problem. If they are doing what they are trained to do, that is give many, many vaccines to tiny children in an untested protocol, then they are part of the problem.

Please tune in to this program, and ask your doctor to tune in too.
