Default Autism and breastfeeding

I am wondering if Autism is related to a lack of proper nutrition in the developing brain.

Do you know a child with autism? If so, was that child breastfed? The children that I know that have some form of autism, neither one as breastfed.

very interesting..

there are arguments for each side. I know a few families with autistic children and they are equally divided. Interesting to note: twins. One is autistic, one is not.. and you see this with both "long term, exclusive" breastfeeding and bottle.

if formulas lack certain acid supplements ('doco something' and another o can't remember) med studies have proven an increase in autism

the diet of the mom and their worries about weight gain, lack of prenatal vitamins

genetic.

On a side note, I breastfed 3 single births, and twins. I am well aware of the bond it creates with warm, physical, closeness, and the emotional comfort. Having said that, I feel if a child is autistic from any cause.. breastfeeding will help with the emotional, physical bond that plagues many autistic children thus possibly giving the child a better chance. imo.

I believe that all the vaccinnes have something to do with it. Too many drugs introduced into a small body to quick.

the vaccine link to autism is a result of a mercury based preservative in the vaccines named thimerosal.

I've read and heard that autism can be directly connected to the toxic vaccinations babies get at birth. There was a big law suit over this very issue recently. The parents won the case.

**Edit** I just noticed after posting that others have read what I have read.

A major concession on the part of the US government has gone largely unmentioned in the popular press. The U.S. government has concluded that childhood vaccines contributed to symptoms of autism in 9-year-old Hannah Poling. This recent admission was in response to one of three test cases that allege the mercury-containing vaccine preservative thimerosal caused autism in children.

According to the case, the child was developing normally and in good health until her 18-month well-baby visit, where she received vaccinations for nine diseases, two of which contained thimerosal. Within 48 hours of the shots, Hannah became sick, refused to walk, and could not sleep through the night. Within three months, she began showing signs of autism.

hey, watch out there, vaccinnes are drugs? I though they were made from the same disease itīs supposed to combat, for the organism itself generates antibodies. Are there vaccinnes that are chemicals, thatīs drugs by definition? Hardly...please someone explain this to us ignorants.

"Drugs" may have been the wrong term, but I believe what he was saying is correct. It's everything else that's in a vaccine that is dangerous. Ammonium sulfate, Monosodium glutamate, aluminum, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, mercury, phenol/phenoxyethanol, etc..

When you pump a tiny child with all this there's bound to be some adverse reactions, effecting some more than others.

the ONLY autistic human I know is now a teenager. Was NOT breastfed...and takes medication twice a day. He eats everything in sight- has this really wierd need to make up lies and be a real grand-stander.
One of my son's friends. We almost dread him coming over. His Mother will sit and talk for hours on what a struggle he is- how much milk he drinks in a week....and the fact that he likes to "lick the television screen"
He's on the swim team, and unbeaten in freestyle & butterfly. Connection????

I honestly dont understand what Autism is. For all the publicity it gets these days, it is still a mystery to me.

Kind of reminds me of people that get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Anyone can claim to have it, there is no test for it and you can have any number of different unrelated symptoms.

Most of that's been removed from the vaccines and the Autism rates are continuing to rise.

The thimerosol was a preservative.

And the vaccines ARE made from the same disease, but tend to be grouped together, like the MMR vaccine.

Chances are slim to none that you'd ever be exposed to measles, mumps, and rubella ALL at the same time.

Kev, I teach kids with Autism. I've never asked about breastfeeding, but I HAVE noticed that it tends to run in families. If one member has it, you start looking around and someone else has it...

Autism is very real. But it is a spectrum condition and there will always be a fight about whom to render as normal and who gets a label. If you really want to know what autism is I can inform you. And fibro seems pretty real too if you ask me. I have a similar condition to fibro that was also seem as "nothing", but now there are clinical tests for it and it came up as a very real thing...

Autism rates started to climb in the 1930s - just a few decades after the baby bottle and formula was introduced.

I am wondering if autism has a number of contributing factors. But - most conditions are related to poor nutrition. So what happens when a developing brain is deprived of proper nutrition? A few years ago breast feeding rates reached their lowest point in all of recorded history. As breastfeeding rates were going down, autism rates were going up.

The good news, breastfeeding rates are going up. If there is a link, autism rates will start going down. But only time will tell.

Keep in mind, I am not talking about breastfeeding for a few days, or a couple of weeks. I guess I should have posted a time limit on the breastfeeding. Some mothers say they breastfed and only did it for a few weeks or a month.

So out of the children that were breastfed and do have autism, how long did they breastfeed? A few days do not count in this poll. Were the children really breastfed, or where they mainly bottle fed and justa little breast milk?

From what I have researched, Autism has started to skyrocket at a rate consistent with the increased level of diagnostic capability. IE: It is likely that it has been relatively flat at the same general %, but the standard of what get diagnosed is getting wider; thus increasing what is getting classified as autistic. Previously, milder forms may have been misdiagnosed.

As to the vaccination angle, Thimerosal has not been used in childhood vaccinations since before 2003, and yet the "statistics" still show rising cases of early childhood autism.

The breastfeeding angle is a good one, as is genetics.

I had a very lengthy response to this topic posted here: http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...927#post113927

Feel free to read and comments, if you care to, are appreciated.

As for diagnostics - I know 2 children that have been diagnosed with autism, and I do not remember a single person in my school acting like these children do.

Unlike attention deficit that can be misdiagnosed, these autism children display unique physical manifestations of their condition. Its like the wiring in their head is not finished and all the lights are not on.
