The Mother of All FDA Fails

The FDA has never required drug safety assessment for fetal germline impact, even though FDA staff understand that gestational exposures can adversely affect developing germ cells. We must end this catastrophic omission, while also granting all Americans access to their own prenatal medical records.

Germline Disruption Hypothesis of Autism in the News

I've had quite a few requests for places people can go for news about the Germline Disruption Hypothesis of Autism.  Here are some:

July 2013, Environmental Health News: Onslaught of autism: A mom's crusade could help unravel scientific mystery http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2013/autism-epigenetics

July 2013, NIH Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee: Autism: Germline Disruption in Personal and Historical Context, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_0iMnxsKSo (15-minute video)


August 2013, San Francisco Chronicle: Mother's Quest Could Help Solve Autism Mystery, http://www.sfchronicle.com/health/article/Mother-s-quest-could-help-solve-autism-mystery-4682498.php 

August 2013, Autism Speaks Blog: A Grandmotherly Clue in One Family's Autism Mystery, http://www.autismspeaks.org/blog/2013/08/27/grandmotherly-clue-one-family%E2%80%99s-autism-mystery

September 2013, Pittsburgh Post Gazette: Can Autism Be Triggered in Future Generations? http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/news/health/can-autism-be-triggered-in-future-generations-706678/


Also, many scientific presentations relating to the topic of epigenetics of germline disruption are archived at AutismEpigenetics.org

  1. I was recently sent a link to this article.It isn't about autism,it's about Multiple Sclerosis,but it's all about epigenetics,epigenetic inheritence,methylation,and even vitamin D.You will find it very interesting.There are a lot of mothers with MS who have children with autism.This just proves that people who work with other diseases involving the brain are more willing to accept this stuff than those that work with autism,and as a result,autism research is way behind research in MS or schizophrenia.

  3. Roger, you are so right about autism research being way behind efforts relating to other disorders. It's truly unbelievable that in 2013 the mainstream autism research community continues to emphasize the "genes" OR "environment" approach, as if our genes cannot be affected by environment!

    I often feel much autism research is lost in the swill of the dark ages, wasting everyone's time and money, and all for naught. What's even worse is the presumption that a unitary disorder called "autism" even exists -- it emphatically does not, it is ALWAYS SIMPLY SYMPTOMOLOGY SECONDARY to many other underlying conditions/disruptions. Thanks for writing.

    sshhhhh…non giratevi....

    fate finta di niente....

    sono l‘agente moollllto segreto Ostin Pauers, quello di cui si parla nei commenti di questo blog…

    Volevo innanzitutto ringraziare tutta la rete dei bloggeroni (che sono gli agenti moolllto segreti e tutti massoni 2.0)e che stanno cancellando quei commenti che stanno facendo saltare la mia copertura di agente moollllto segreto impegnato in missioni segretisssime.

    Purtroppo non posso rivelare nulla da qui ma chi volesse essere reclutato nella rete dei bloggeroni o volesse informazioni sulla mia occultisssima attività mi contatti pure.

    Vi rivelerò importanti informazioni e vi spiegherò anche come vive un pericolosissimo e segretissimo soggetto come il sottoscritto.

    A presto.
