Combating Autism Act of 2006, The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on December 3, 2007

After a good healthy step away from my last post and thinking it all through (here is another article) I think the inclusion of people who believe that vaccines have something to do with autism on the committee would be helpful.  Actually, I would be suspicious of a committee that DID NOT include people with this view.  

Here’s what else I think in no particular order: 

I don’t think anything should be over looked or underestimated, whether genetic or environmental. 

I think it is (thankfully) about time to have this type of study completed.

I think it would benefit the committee to investigate more than just this particular group of children.  However I’m thankful it is nationwide and relatively comprehensive from what I’ve read.

I’m more than thrilled that there seems to be a diversity of individuals within the committee including an adult autistic person (autistic adults are a wonderful resource). 

I think there is a genetic disposition whether it is a combined set of specific genes or a recessive gene that has been magnified from an environmental source.

I think there is some type (not Celiac Disease) of nutritional or digestive problem that is symptomatic of those who are on the autistic spectrum OR an indicator of those who have a recessive gene OR the vaccines may play a roll in exacerbating digestive problems of those with this gene.

I think autism is a web which may take us decades to unravel completely, if ever.

What do you think?
