    Autism & Vaccines - Jenny McCarthy on Oprah

    NVIC E-news** Jenny McCarthy on Oprah
    Barbara Loe Fisher Commentary:

    When she was not yet a superstar or even broadcasting nationally, in early
    1985 a friend gave Oprah a copy of "DPT: A Shot in the Dark," which was the
    first report of an association between autism and vaccination. "We're
    waiting until it comes out in paperback," a producer told her friend. The
    paperback version was published in 1986 but, by then, Oprah had starred in
    "The Color Purple," her show had been nationally syndicated and the vaccine
    safety debate had become a heated controversy. Over the last two decades,
    many parents of vaccine injured children have written letters to Oprah in
    hopes that she would do a show about vaccine risks.

    Yesterday, after 22 years, Oprah finally talked about vaccine injured
    children when she interviewed Hollywood Moms, Jenny McCarthy and Holly
    Peete. Jenny has written a book on her experience of watching her two and a
    half year old son regress into autism after an MMR shot.

    On the show, Jenny talked about the increases in autism among children and
    asked what parents of vaccine injured children have been asking for a
    quarter century: "What number will it take for people just to start
    listening to what the mothers of children who have seen autism have been
    saying for years, which is, 'We vaccinated our baby and something happened."

    Jenny says even before Evan received his vaccines, she tried to talk to her
    pediatrician about it. "Right before his MMR shot, I said to the doctor, "I
    have a very bad feeling about this shot. This is the autism shot, isn't
    it?' And he said, 'No, that is ridiculous. It is a mother's desperate
    attempt to blame something,' and he swore at me, and then the nurse gave
    [Evan] the shot," she says. "And I remember going, 'Oh, God, I hope he's
    right.' And soon thereafter-boom-the soul's gone from his eyes."

    The CDC's prepared response to a query from the Oprah Show staff about
    whether there is a link between autism and vaccines was "CDC places a high
    priority on vaccine safety and the integrity and credibility of its vaccine
    safety research. This commitment not only stems from our scientific and
    medical dedication, it is also personal-for most of us who work at CDC are
    also parents and grandparents. And as such, we too, have high levels of
    personal interest and concern in the health and safety of children,
    families and communities. We simply don't know what causes most cases of
    autism, but we're doing everything we can to find out. The vast majority of
    science to date does not support an association between thimerosal in
    vaccines and autism. But we are currently conducting additional studies to
    further determine what role, if any, thimerosal in vaccines may play in the
    development of autism. It is important to remember, vaccines protect and
    save lives. Vaccines protect infants, children and adults from the
    unnecessary harm and premature death caused by vaccine-preventable diseases."

    It is curious that the CDC would confine its response regarding the
    autism-vaccine connection to thimerosal, when MMR vaccine has been strongly
    associated with regressive autism and live virus MMR vaccine never
    contained thimerosal. The National Vaccine Information Center, which has
    operated a Vaccine Reaction Registry since 1982, continues to receive
    reports from parents describing how their children regressed after
    receiving live virus or non- mercury containing vaccines, often after being
    given 8 to 12 vaccines on one day. The most heart-breaking stories are when
    children are vaccinated over and over again despite deteriorating health
    because their pediatricians are in denial about vaccine risks.

    Jenny McCarthy gave a star turn on Oprah when she clearly, simply and
    passionately described what happened to her son after vaccination and how
    she was empowered by information she found on the internet to find ways to
    cure his vaccine-associated regressive autism. She listened to her mother's
    instinct and pursued a course of treatment that involved nutrition and
    other alternative therapies. It is a story of a mother's love and
    determination to heal her son after he was given the diagnosis of autism, a
    neuroimmune disorder that so many pediatricians are taught is untreatable.

    In the early 1990's, a mother in California, Cindy Goldenberg, was the
    first Mom to cure her son of regressive autism by listening to her mother's
    instincts and doing her own research into vaccine-induced neuroimmune
    dysfunction. Her son experienced regressive autism after receiving MMR
    vaccine. Cindy sought out IVIG therapy as well as nutritional and probiotic
    therapies that she said "healed his gut." Her son was soon in a regular
    classroom and this year he graduated from high school.

    As of last night, there were nearly 2,000 messages, primarily from Moms,
    for Jenny and Holly posted on Oprah's website at
    http://www.oprah.com/community/thread/1812

    Bravo, Oprah. You allowed Jenny to tell it like it is. You have helped
    millions of Moms across America understand what happened to their children,
    who changed physically, mentally and emotionally after getting vaccinated,
    and now suffer with autism and other kinds of vaccine-induced brain and
    immune system dysfunction such as learning disabilities, ADHD, seizure
    disorders, asthma, and diabetes.

    If your child stopped speaking, wouldn't look you in the eye and completely
    ignored the world around them, what would you do? In her new book, Louder
    Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism, actress Jenny McCarthy
    shares her emotional story of diagnosis, hope, faith and recovery-a journey
    many thousands of parents now face.
