Help Fight Autism

No free music today, here's something free for you that's far more important.

Please take a look at this video (it's not long) and
forward the link to others who might watch it!

The band, Five for Fighting, is generously donating $0.40 to Autism Speaks for *each time* this video is viewed. The funding goes toward
research studies to help find a cure. When you have a moment, please
visit the link below to watch the video and pass it along to your
friends and family. They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we
can help them to surpass this goal.

Autism is one of the most heartbreaking diagnoses that a parent can hear about their child. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive behaviors, such as obsessively arranging objects or following very specific routines. Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe. This is a syndrome that has more than quadrupled in cases over the last 15 years.

It'll take you three minutes and it won't cost you a thing.

I am an alternative healthcare physician, and have studied this for over 20 years. The terrible tragedy of Autism is that it is almost certainly the result of vaccine injury, and therefore preventible in most cases. And damn the medical profession for resisting the evidence and telling the public that vaccination is safe. Contact the national vaccine information center for more information.

I am a parent of 2 sons, one with aspegers and one with severe autism and have yet to see any irrefutable evidence that there is a lin,far from it. the rise of awarness of autism has been matched by the misconceptions assocociated with bu the public and sadly also professionals.

I am also weary of searches for a "cure" i have known sonme parents who have and are still chasing a cure and have to come to terms with the condition, all their energy going into "a cure"

Autism has NOTHING to do with vaccines in any way, shape or form. Please do a little research and stop spreading lies about the 0origin of this horrible illness. This issue was raised by a so-called "doctor" nearly 20 years ago, and was completely disproven shortly thereafter. This "doctor" has since recanted his statements, but that doesn't seem to matter to many. Bad information like this this issue even worse.

I understand that this is an emotional topic. But, jesus fukking christ, all I did was post a link to try to help fight autism.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Yes and all we did was respond, the link was posted on your site and as such your support is explicit. instead of getting sodefensive why not listen to the response.

I welcome the debate and only aske that you take on baord the alternative view and maybe put it forward the next time you hear.this vaccine theory.
as for the the person practising alternative medicein, what is YOUR basis for your view ????????

i have yet to hear anyone comment taht autism tneds to show itself at the toddler stage which is also around the time of vaccines. any serious research would consider this in its findings, the failure to do so means any conclusions are flawed at the very lest. totally irresonsible
