New Study Says Obesity Causes Autism?

By Dr. John L. Reizer

According to a new, scientific study that was published on April 9, 2012 by the Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, there is a definite link between overweight mothers and babies that are born with autism.

The results of the study were featured in an article that was published by the online magazine, Natural Society, on April 10, 2012. The author of the article, Anthony Gucciardi writes, “New research has drawn a direct link between obese mothers and autistic babies, finding that overweight pregnant women have a startling 67% higher chance of having an autistic child than those who are not.”

In 1998, a scientific study authored by Andrew Wakefield, M.D. was published by The Lancet that supposedly demonstrated a direct link between autism and the MMR vaccine. The study was later retracted by the journal in 2010; because it was determined that Dr. Wakefield had disregarded several scientific, research standards while completing his work. Many alternative health care practitioners believe the Wakefield study was not flawed and that it accurately reflected the true cause of autism.

To this day, there continues to be an ongoing debate over whether vaccines are a causal factor in the genesis of so many cases of autism in the United States and around the world.

Conventional, allopathic medicine is quick to offer a variety of reasons for the tremendous increase in autism cases nationally. None of the reasons, however, seem to be linked to the medical profession’s regular practice of vaccinating the world’s children with medicines that have a longstanding history of containing toxic ingredients including Mercury.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has a documented history of supporting the vaccine agenda. They regularly encourage pediatricians to coerce parents into vaccinating their children. They also provide a publication that teaches pediatricians how to profit, in a business sense, from administering toxic vaccines to young children.

One has to seriously question the objectivity and credibility of a study that was published and promoted by an organization that has such a long, documented history of being a strong proponent of vaccinating children.

Are we being lied to? Are we being fed a study that has been engineered to purposely confuse the public about the true cause of autism?  What do you think about this controversial, scientific study?

    Great show, Dr. Reizer! You have a lot of guts to go out and speak about this subject. I wish more doctors would talk about the dangers associated with these poisons.

      The vast majority of people do not want to face the fact that they’re constantly being lied to about vaccines and other medical treatments. We need to be responsible for our own health and stop being so damn gullible and trusting.

      Pharmaceutical companies have been granted a license to poison people. Does anybody really doubt that this is the case? Do we really believe it is natural and a good thing to give a child 80 different vaccines by the age of 10? This is medical propaganda and it is widely supported by the United States government, insurance companies (also owned by the drug companies) and the media companies that constantly cram this information down our throats every single day through a never-ending stream of commercials!

      Everybody believes that all of this medical crap is backed by highly sophisticated science. Bullocks!! I’ve got news for you, the studies are funded, all of them, by drug companies. There’s a major agenda taking place and it doesn’t have you or your loved ones best interests in mind.

      It’s time to wake the hell up and start holding these companies and our government accountable for their actions!

      Ignorance is no excuse. Read, dammit!!! Learn about how your body works and stop being taken advantage of.

        Hi Ryan,

        I couldn’t agree with you more. You have hit the nail on the head my friend. Until Americans wake up and decide to become proactive about their health, we will continue to be a country filled with unhealthy citizens.

        Thanks for visiting the website and for contributing on the comment thread.

        I suspect that for the anti-vaxxers, it’s a moral issue as well. It’s about the sense of purity of essence, which is the same moral issue behind opposition to homosexuality. They don’t think about vaccines in scientific terms, judging what minuscule quantities are safe, but in moral terms, where any amount of contaminants makes them impure. Just ask them what a safe level is for, say, aluminum. I’ll bet you 10-1 the answer will be none. For a moral issue, it’s all-or-nothing.In fact, this is the same issue behind organic food. Pesticides and anitbiotics are contaminants, and even the smallest amount ruins a crop or cow forever.There’s no way to reason with the type of thought using logic. The moral part of the brain overrides the logical part. In the end, I’m not sure what should be done to combat people who think this way. Skepticism will at least help those on the fence, though, so they don’t fall too far.

    We are proud parents of our 2-year-old dauteghr, Skylar. We opted to NOT get her vaccinated during all her routine scheduled vaccinations during her first 2 years. We are going to get her vaccinated when she is around 3, and we will then just have her vaccinated with a few we feel are most important. I, personally, have a compromised immune system. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at 26 (I am now 31) and I am suspected of having lupus as well. I was vaccinated in the 80’s full vaccinations. And, I had the Measles at 3 months old. I work in the field of Autism, but this wasn’t the reason we decided to undergo an alternative form of vaccinating our child. I breastfed Skylar for 1 year and feel she had the benefit of, not only my breast milk, but also antibodies from illnesses (such as the Measles & Chicken Pocks) PLUS she received the antibodies from my immunizations. I feel vaccinating your child is a very personal choice. And, just for example, my husband and I both let out a big NO for the Hepatitis vaccination when Sky was 1 day old. Just not something we felt like she needed. By and large, I am very concerned about vaccinations and their relationship to digestive concerns and immune health. Thus, waiting was a comforting compromise for us. As previously stated, there are a few vaccinations Sky will get, but overall, we are very cautions about her health/immune system given my history and I am convinced that we must all be our own best INFORMED advocates for our children.
