About the Author

Mr Courtney Zietzke is a 42 year old financial accountant from Seattle, WA. Over the last three years Mr. Zietzke has done extensive research into the causes of what many call "Autism." His opinions in this book are substantiated with proven facts and direct uncontested evidence. Mr. Zietzke like thousands of concerned parents wanted answers into what went wrong and most importantly why did this national tragedy have to happen.


As a parent of an Autistic child, it is difficult to describe the pain and resentment that is felt by having a perfect baby and then having that baby snatched from you at about 16 months old.The brain damage that my child received should not have happened. The industry is the best in the World. There are safeguards and redundancies built into the system. However, in this case, the system failed and failed badly.

My child and countless others were injected with a substance known as Thimerosal. Thimerosal is an additive to baby vaccines that contains 49.6% Mercury. This substance was banned by the pet vaccination industry over ten years ago because of known health risks. The pharmaceutical industry kept this additive in the baby vaccines, knowing full well the risks to our children's health.

According to my child's weight and the amount of vaccines he received that contained this additive, my child and thousands of other children have received over 40 times the legal safety limit for mercury exposure as established by the Environmental Protection Agency.

I speak for literarily thousands of concerned and angry parents who basically got burned by a system that has been perverted by Greed, Politics, and Corruption.

In the last several years, the Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ), the Centers of Disease Control ( CDC ) and the National Institutes of Health ( NIH ) have granted hundreds of waivers of the conflict of interest rule in favor of the drug giants and their "paid consultants". Has the U.S. health care system been unduly influenced? Thousands of children have suffered the consequences of these people's greed and short sightedness.

My child was born perfectly healthy, full of life. He had the potential to achieve anything in life that he would have chosen to do. Because of a short sighted medical system that failed, my child is now a semi vegetative little boy who is lost in his own tortured world of mercury induced autism.

This book talks about the cause and the arrogant atmosphere that abounds in the vaccine community that has caused this tragedy. If you look at an autistic child, you will notice fear and profound sadness on their little faces. They are imprisoned in a world where they desperately want to escape, but can't. The frustration that these children feel and their cries for help have been ignored by the very system that caused this atrocity.

When I look upon other healthy six year old children who are playing, communicating and living normal lives, I wonder what might have been with my little boy. I am sure I am not alone in my thoughts. This is a painful and very tragic occurrence.

Instead of concern, sympathy and needed help, the Pharmaceutical industry and the "system" that caused this tragedy has been for the most part un sympathetic, evasive and full of legal denials. This book will anger many people, which is precisely what it is intended to do.

My desire is to light a fire under the bureaucrats, politicians and the medical community to get off their asses and do something to help these children. These children did not deserve what they got. The parents of these brain damaged children have suffered terrible pain and financial hardship as a result of the greed and political corruption from the very segment of our society that was supposed to invoke trust and medical excellence.

Is this book critical? You bet it is. I know I speak for thousands of people who, like myself want answers. The tragic truth is that every time a question is asked, all that is given in return is deception, distorted truths and out right lies from the very people we trusted the most.

Lastly, it is my hope that this book will at least get people asking the questions of

Experts: Redefine Autism as Systemic Illness

Condition thought to be triggered by assault to immature immune system, By Susannah Benady

Researchers are calling for a radical new definition of autism in the wake of evidence presented here that autism is in fact an autoimmune disease, rather than a mental handicap.

This was the consensus among doctors at the forefront of research into the physiological complications that affect many children with autism and autism spectrum problems. They presented their findings at the second International Medical Conference on Autism held here in April.

No longer can the condition just be considered a psychiatric or neurological disorder, they argued. Autism had to be seen as a systemic illness that has gastrointestinal, immunological, endocrinological, psychological and neurological complications.

Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, a pediatrician and medical director of the International Autism Research Centre in Palm Bay, Fla., said virtually all children diagnosed with autism also have some other significant abnormal function.

He said that is why the term "autism" is misleading and should be replaced with a phrase that better describes the child's physical condition.

"Autism is a psychiatric term," he said. "I consider 'toxic encephalopathy' a better description because it implies that there is something we can do if we detoxify the individuals."

Dr. Bradstreet's research centre specializes in treating children with autism spectrum disorders by investigating their underlying or coexisting physiological condition and treating that with a combination of conventional drug therapy and nutritional supplementation.

The aim is to treat the underlying condition, and also to detoxify and strengthen the immune system.

In cases where the immunological vulnerability or toxicity can be identified, and then responds to treatment, children show a marked improvement in their ability to relate to others, as well as in their
academic performance, he said.

Evidence presented at the conference by physicians researching the physical symptoms of autism should change the way doctors understand and treat children suffering from the disorder.

They now believe that autism is triggered by an environmental insult or toxicity that damages the immature and fragile immune system of a fetus,infant or very young child. This causes the immune system to react against
body organs.

The result is a condition that has a multisystem effect, not just on a patient's neurological system. Most frequently, it is the gastrointestinal system or "second brain" that shows symptoms.

Many of the children also have a long history of susceptibility to infections and experience hormonal imbalance, such as hyperthyroidism and early puberty. Some children even display coagulation and circulatory disorders.

Research presented at the conference showed that tests on blood and tissue samples from autistic children have detected autoantibodies to proteins in the brain, gastrointestinal system and other organs. As Dr. Bradstreet puts it: "The child becomes the victim of his immune system." Dr. Andrew Wakefield of London's Royal Free and University College medical school, who has investigated the gastrointestinal symptoms of more than 150 autistic children, said these children "show an aberration of the immune system in some ways similar to people with AIDS."

The speakers also agreed that autism happens more often in families suffering diseases of the immune system such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, inflammatory bowel disease and even asthma and eczema. The incidence of all such diseases has markedly increased in recent decades, they note.

According to research by Dr. Anne Comi and colleagues at Johns Hopkins Hospital division of pediatric neurology in Baltimore that was cited at the conference, there is a nine-fold increase in the incidence of autism in children born to mothers with immune illnesses.

Dr. Ed Yazbak, a pediatric infectious disease specialist from Boston, said research will not find a chromosome responsible for autism. He is a former professor at Brown University now studying the medical histories of children with autism in an effort to determine what triggered their condition.

"Research will show there is a genetic predisposition to autism. What we have to find is the environmental insult," he said. Physicians treating children diagnosed with autism must recognize the children are suffering a medical illness.

This is particularly noticeable in the more recently identified "regressive autism" that many parents have linked to their children's immunization with the mumps-measles-rubella vaccine, Dr. Yazbak said.

He called on pediatricians to reclaim care of the child with autism. "It is a pediatric illness that affects the whole child and it needs a pediatrician to take care of the whole child," he said.

"The pediatrician needs to co-ordinate consultations with the psychiatrist, gastroenterologist and occupational therapists. "If pediatricians do not adopt the new thinking on autism, it will be left to crooks and charlatans to exploit desperate parents," Dr. Yazbak warned.
