Breast feeding, Genetically Engineered Foods, Autism
Breast feeding in public is hitting the press. There was a recent "nurse in" in NY City to claim the rights of women to breast feed in public.
This article titled,"If men could breast fed." is a great write up about the current situation.

More on Autism:
National Press about theVaccine/ Autism Connection:
These recent articles in Washington Times reveal a very interesting hypothesis. Author, Dan Olmsted writes: "Since the Amish have been cut off for hundreds of years from American culture and scientific progress, the Amish may have had less exposure to some new factor triggering autism in the rest of population. The likely culprit: vaccines.
Traveling to the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country in search of autistic Amish children, the reporter, based on national statistics, should have found as many as 200 children with autism in the community -- instead, he found only three, the oldest age 9 or 10.
The first autistic Amish child was a girl who had been brought over from China, adopted by one family only to be given up after becoming overwhelmed by her autism, and then re-adopted by an Amish Mennonite family. (China, India and Indonesia are among countries moving fast to mass-vaccination programs.)
The second autistic Amish child definitely had received a vaccination and developed autism shortly thereafter.
The reporter was unable to determine the vaccination status of the third child.

The Medical Debate:

Video on Autism:
The autism mailing group recently sent out this link: http://www.autism-recoveredchildren.com/
It is a one hour video from the DAN conference, about kids on the autistic spectrum who have recovered through the use of nutritional intervention. The interesting thing is that a lot of these kids became "autistic" after vaccination. Some really interesting footage. And a fantastic shot of the audience responding to Gov. Schwarzenager signing a bill to forbid the use of mercury in vaccinations. The speaker has all parents in the audience stand and wave their hands if they thought their child would not be autistic if not for their vaccination.
RFK, Jr on Autism:
Recent press has been focusing on an article written by RFK, Jr on the effects of thimerosal in vaccines and the vaccine connection.
