Do autistic children have 'starving brains?'

Sep 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NewsTarget.com

McCandless' position in her book, "Children with Starving Brains: A Medical Treatment Guide for Autism Spectrum Disorder," is that ASD is a complex syndrome based on physiological and biochemical disorders that have as a common end-point the cognitive and emotional impairment that we generally associate with autism.

A very interesting article about information ignored by Pharma, government health agencies, mainstream medicine and psychiatry.

Naturally, this is from Natural News... and profits from her book. "Physically ill" children is not what autism is. And what are her sources? She makes paragraphs which include more than one source but by appearance, it leads the reader to assume it's one. But you're going to love this. 2 sources are "a (this means single) Child Undergoing Chiropractic Care". 1 source is her own book. Another source is a population-based study. The only interesting study is that of the cytokine production. It was the major cause of death in the 1918 Spanish flu (prior to vaccines). Healthy people died due to the ability to produce stronger immune responses, like increasing cytokine levels.

Bottom line, there are no sources for the claim of children with autism having higher occurrences of the nutrient levels.

She'sd a doctor who has treated many autistic children. How many have you treated and are you a doctor?

So are there doctors who suggest vaccines. They are doctors as well. So what. This article alone shows she has little to back up her claims, what is more funny is sources 2 that is of a single patient of none other than chiropractic care.

Since the inception of chiropractic more than 100 years ago, chiropractors have been claiming to be able to help just about every known disease and condition out there.

Also, chiropractors are notorious for presenting 1 person "studies" as evidence for what they do. Their rags are filled with them. Very bizarre.

They are a bizarre bunch. And lets face, chiropractors get absolutely NO actual clinical experience in treating childhood diseases. They also get NO clinical experience with vaccinations.

Matter of fact, there is basically NO evidence for the most commonly used chiropractic techniques such as activator, nucca, gonstead, dnft, sot, network and ak.

Other than that, what is their opinion worth when it comes to vaccination and other health related issues (outside of simple low back and neck conditions)?

Correction: I have no idea what I'm talking about. I've never been a chiropractor or an MD. Sorry about the deception.

Naturally, that's what you get with natural news and 'doctors' like McCandless, studies sourced that are associated with chiropractors presenting 1 person "studies".

Nice try. The name change doesn't actually do much for hiding who you are. The attempt however is rather humorous.

It's a no brainer that a 1-person 'study' is useless, no matter if a chiropractor did it or anyone else.

just like one person's opinion on Topix is useless.
