To the editor:
I looked at the statistics from the study cited in The Associated Press story "Study links autism risk to fathers' age" (Journal-World, Sept. 5). The rate of autism was one in 1,200 compared with the U.S. rate of one in 166. Of the 110 cases studied, 34 were in the 15-29 paternal age group, 62 in the 30-39 group, 13 (or 5 percent) in the 40-49 bracket, and one case with a father over 50.
This is a typical study paid for by those who are trying to cover up the truth about the cause of autism. There is a parallel to the increased use of mercury-containing vaccines and the explosion in cases of autism and other neurodevelopmental and childhood disorders including cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, asthma and attention deficit disorder. This explosion took place in the early '90s with the addition of seven mercury-containing shots in the first year of life with the addition of Hepatitis B and HIB. The liability for those who have caused this iatrogenic disease is in the trillions of dollars.
There is legislation, HR 5940, pending in Congress to resolve the controversy about mercury in vaccines. This legislation proposes a comprehensive study comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated populations.
Mercury in vaccines causes mercury poisoning. Mercury poisoning symptoms parallel the symptoms of autism. My son has mercury poisoning, not old father's disease! The parents and taxpayers, who are paying for the damage, deserve the truth.
