An Interesting Inside Take on Medicine

Below is the beginning of a very interesting article on vaccines and autism.  You might wonder why someone with MS is putting up articles about autism. Several reasons actually. Like MS, autism is considered autoimmune. Like MS, autism is still looking for a cause. Like MS, autism is looking for a cure. Like MS, patients are at the beck and call of neurologists who only know how to sell drugs that don't help, often hinder and are expensive.It may be about autism but it says a lot about the way medicine is practiced these days. So the opinions and comments made by a neuro who is not a pusher for the chemical inventions of big pharma are interesting and perhaps have a clue to something that can help us with our MS. I have highlighted the paragraph that caught my eye and kept me reading.

Vaccines, Neurodevelopment and Autism Spectrum Disorders

The Danger of Excessive Vaccination During Brain Development: The Case for a Link to Autism Spectrum Disorders

Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.

In 1976, children received 10 vaccines before attending school. Today they will receive over 36 injections. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control assured parents that it was safe to not only give these vaccines, but that they could be given at one time with complete safety. Is this true? Or are we being lied to on a grand scale?

The medical establishment has created a set of terms, which they use constantly to boost their egos and firm up their authority as the unique holders of medical wisdom–the mantra is “evidence-based medicine”, as if everything outside their anointing touch is bogus and suspect. A careful examination of many of the accepted treatments reveals that most have little or no scientific “evidence-based” data to support it. One often repeated study found that almost 80% of medical practice had no scientific backing.

This is not to say that medical practice should be purely based on pure and applied science, as understood in the fields of physics and chemistry. Medicine, as pointed out by many of the great men of medicine, is an art. For a discussion on the proper role of medicine I refer the reader to my paper titled –Regimentation in Medicine and the Death of Creativity – on my website (
