Here are out tax dollars at work for autism in the United States. I am personally calling on all of you who read to take part; the IACC public comments are being requested by January 5th 2017 for the next IACC meeting on January 13th, 29017. If you are so interested you can review the updated, new and fresh Strategic Plan released in 2013! This outlines how they are going to sway research on autism with tax dollars.
The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) is a Federal advisory committee that coordinates all efforts within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) concerning autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Through its inclusion of both Federal and public members, the IACC helps to ensure that a wide range of ideas and perspectives are represented and discussed in a public forum.
I placed emphasis with the color red on a few words in their mission statement for many reasons or accountability.
On August 8, 2014, President Obama signed the Autism Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education and Support (CARES) Act of 2014 (PDF – 256 KB) into law, reauthorizing and expanding the provisions of the Combating Autism Act of 2006 (PDF – 142 KB). New provisions include an increased focus on services and supports, a report on the needs of transitioning youth and adults, and the creation of an Autism Initiative within the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure accountability and ongoing implementation of autism activities across the Department. The new law also reauthorizes the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) to continue until September 30, 2019. You can read the entire press release here.
Any interested person may submit written public comments to the IACC prior to the meeting by e-mailing the comments to IACCPublicInquiries@mail.nih.gov
I just sent mine in, again, and reminded them of the inaction or response to obvious issues plaguing the autism community. I hope that you will join me in expressing your concerns with a personal IACC public comment for autism research and treatments in the United States, as guided by our government-appointed committee, funded by both you and I.
With your efforts of assigned studies and monies in the IACC, in the past 10 years has the IACCu found or identified any new treatments or causes of autism? What are your most successful projects where taxpayer monies were used, and how are you building upon that information and research?
I would like an open public answer to this questions above.
As requested in public comment in July 2016 I am again, requesting answers to the following:
1. Autism is an epidemic and the IACC needs real information and data from real people. I request that the IACC facilitates a survey the parents of ASD children in the United States. I request that this survey is over 50 but under 100 questions pertaining an ASD child and overseen and co-managed by a third party foundation, or organization for Autism that is recommended and voted on by the public. I request that the IACC proposes and allocates funding for this study in the fiscal year of 2016 to be published no later than the spring of 2017.
2. Autism is an epidemic and needs the attention from you, our Government and the media. I live in a community outside of Detroit, MI. Since I’ve been given the “gift” as a parent, I see ASD disorders in children more and more frequently. Recently while at a local park playground out of the 40-50 children there I came across not one other, not two, not three but four other children with moderate to severe autism.
Why is this happning?
The prevalence of autism in U.S. children has increased from 1-150 in 2000 to 1-68 in 2015. Autism is now the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States.
I ask, as many have – why is this not being given the proper attention?
Can the IACC please answer this clearly to us parents and caregivers in the fiscal year of 2016?
3.) Glyphosate. What are the affects on the human brain? What are the affects on the human ASD brain?
Why would a 4-½ year old child on the spectrum whop was breast fed for two years and ate a natural, healthy diet have over 3x the normal levels of Glyphosate in his blood? We do not live near a farm, he does not work in produce, nor a processing plant. (ref: Glyphosate study on the human brain: http://drbogner.com/pesticides-autism/)
Can the IACC to investigate how Glyphosate is affecting children with ASD vs. Non-ASD in the fiscal year of 2016?
4.) The IACC makes a formal request to Congress to subpoena Dr. William Thompson at the CDC.
Since his admission of falsifying tests, at the request of his superiors on how children receiving the MMR vaccine before 36 months were 340% more likely to receive an autism diagnosis or develop tics. Dr. Thompson made admissions to Biochemical Engineer Brian Hooker in a series of phone calls and not only gave specifics on how to obtain the correct data but also expressed remorse in his cover-up.
I request that the IACC makes a public, formal request to Congress to subpoena Dr. William Thompson of the CDC.
I request that the IACC makes a public, formal request to Nancy Messonnier, MD at the CDC for a full debriefing of the study to be included in the next IACC Summary of Advances in Autism Spectrum Disorder Research: Calendar Year 2016 that Dr. Thompson authored and the allegations of the link between autism and the MMR.
I request that the IACC demand retraction of published study (PubMed 2004 Feb;113(2):259-66.) at the AAP of the MMR/Autism paper co-authored by Dr. DeStefano and Dr. Thompson.
