Michael Fitzpatrick misrepresented by Age of Autism

15 Apr

Hardly news I suppose but on AoA yesterday Michael Fitzpatrick was misrepresented by someone called Teri Arranga.

Starting off by referring to Mike as a ‘backwoods doctor’ – something of an anti-British slur since Mike is a GP in London (I guess London is a backwoods now to AoA?) she soon went on to pretty much rant incoherently, built a few strawmen and finished off by quoting some other guy also ranting incoherently.

According to Arranga

…backwoods doctor Michael Fitzpatrick blasted Polly Tommey, founder of The Autism Trust, for the current campaign that seeks better supports and services for autistic individuals in the UK…

Hardly. Here’s what Mike led with:

In response to her ‘Dear Gordon’ billboard advertising campaign (see below), you have invited the British autism campaigner Polly Tommey to discuss her campaign with you on Wednesday 15 April. However, in the interests of children and families affected by autism, I hope that you will refuse support for her key activities – upholding discredited links between vaccines and autism and recommending unproven and untested fringe treatments.

Blasting? Good grief, where do these fragrant middle class ladies live? Its a statement of fact followed by a wish. None of it isn’t factual and its pretty much polite and to the point.

The fact is that the Autism File _is_ Tommey’s key activity. The other fact is that it is distinctly pro-extreme biomed and upholds links between key anti-vaccine researchers such as Andrew Wakefield. But Arranga sees some more blasting:

Fitzpatrick also blasted The Autism File magazine for including information about vitamins (oh, mercy me) and advertisements from “suppliers of biomedical products” (though none of them as lofty as Merck/Vioxx and Eli Lilly like Fitzpatrick’s cronies’ medical journals), among other things.

What escapes Arranga’s attention is that vitamins used as part of a quack ‘treatment’ for autism is both physically damaging (back in 2006 Mary Megson reported on the case of an autistic boy who was hospitalised by a DAN! doctor following an overdose of vitamins) and damaging to the future of autism research. Oh, mercy me indeed.

But no, Mike mentions the vitamins in passing. Arranga somehow neglected to mention the 15 page feature on Andrew Wakefield in the current issue of Autism File. It is peppered with ads for treatments from various biomeddlers.

Then we get to the ‘undermining’.

Fitzpatrick is trying to undermine the efforts of Polly and The Autism Trust to improve quality of life for autistic individuals and their families, many in woeful situations of deprivation and stress….Polly Tommey will be having meetings with members of the Prime Minister’s team in advance of the promised meeting with Prime Minister Gordon Brown himself. For Fitzpatrick to try to undermine this and to try to deny a charity the ability to do that on behalf of suffering individuals in a country deluged by autism is outrageous.

You can almost see the smoke coming out of Arranga’s ears. And for what? This is nothing but a strawman. Nowhere I can see is Mike saying Tommey shouldn’t go for her meeting with Gordon Brown. And nowhere I can see is Mike saying Tommey shouldn’t do the great things described. What he _is_ saying is that Brown should be very careful about the sort of things coming out of Tommey’s mouth about vaccines, treatments and cures. She is, on these issues, a know-nothing and I think it is absolutely correct for Mike to speak up for the autistic people and parents of autistic people who have no interest in the poor science peddled by Tommey’s publication.

Then after the strawman comes the conspiracy theory, this one bizarrely roping in Brian Deer for some totally mystifying reason:

If it threatens the Deer/Fitzpatrick camp when we want to get better services and supports for 1 child in 60 in the UK and their families, then we have touched a nerve. For example, how can trying to get decent housing and family supports threaten Deer and Fitzpatrick’s current repertoire of witch hunting? Why are they so scared that they would resort to petty tactics?

I mean, huh??? Can’t these people read? And whats this 1 in 60 number? The prevalence for autism in the UK is about 1 in 100. Weird.

Also frothing over in indignation is Oliver Jones, Chair of Autism Trust. He is ‘shocked’ _and_ ‘astounded’ (less caffeine feller):

How dare you act in such an ill informed manner about a campaign that I and many others have invested significant time and effort in – when you evidently have no idea about what we are actually focused upon

Oliver – it seems Mike has a very clear idea. Once again, at no point did Mike say that Tommey shouldn’t meet with Brown or discuss her campaign. He is merely pointing out that Tommey is someone with some decidedly odd ideas about autism treatment and that Brown should show these ideas – if they happen to be raised – the door. He also quite rightly points out that if Tommey is really serious about getting better services and education she should join NAS and support their already existing campaigns in these areas. I’m sorry Autism Trust but the phrase ‘showboating’ does spring inexorably to mind.

Their closing paragraph is genuinely amusing:

Secondly, in respect of Michael Fitzpatrick’s ill-informed letter, we would recommend that we should not seek to highlight this man in the eyes of the UK government, but, instead, we should recommend that people write to him directly. People like Dr Fitzpatrick – like Brian Deer – should simply not be allowed to undermine genuine initiatives such as Polly’s – we cannot allow this censorship.

Yeah, damn that censorship Mike (and Brian Deer again???) -how could you dare to voice your concerns and opinion in a public way? Why couldn’t you just shut up?? Oh wait…isn’t that….censorship…d’uh.

AoA have suggested 2 letter writing campaigns. The first is to deluge Mike’s inbox with emails from AoA readers. The second is to flood the PM with emails supporting Tommey.

Thats fine. But Tommey and AoA should know that a second email campaign is now under way. I’ll ask my readers here to contact Number 10 by writing an email to Gordon Brown c/o Katie Martin (Press Office in Downing Street) on email kmartin@no10.x.gsi.gov.uk or to Michael Ellam (Director of Communications in Downing Street) on email mellam@no10.x.gsi.gov.uk.

I’ll be writing as the parent of a severely autistic child to express my support of Mike’s points regarding Tommey’s beliefs. I hope you will too. And note that AT is an international organisation – US citizens are valid contributors also.

    Personally, after reading Defeating autism a damaging delusion.. which so far I’m the only commentor on goodreads… I’m glad Fitzpatrick isn’t my children’s Dr.. you can go and read my review. And I’m not even in the pro-vaccination camp.

    I’ve written my 20 pg report (rather proud of it actually)… by Monday it’s off to the Canadian Gov’t in response to bill C-360… the one Harold wants and I think isn’t fair b/c it doesn’t give $$$ to the rest of us. Plus, I’m tired of the “autism is a culture” stuff promoted by TAAP and I’ve discussed that as well.

    Do none of you stand up for education or is that considered a brain transplant and therefore a “cure” for autism???

    What the…? Why has misrepresentations become so popular?

    fw2’s review of Michael Fitzpatrick’s book doesn’t even provide any indepth discussion of its content – to me it looks merely like a small rant.

    Hi

    I actually get very fed up with people who have the brains and time to research autism but sling mud at each other or censure good comments.

    There are 1.7 million autism children in the USA. “Yesterday” there were ZERO.

    Where have all these come from? If its vaccines then the increasing vaccine schedule can hardly help.

    There are other hot environmental problems that may help such as the use of GMO, aspartame and organophosphates in USA and UK.

    In India recently the increase of autism for one year was 133 per cent. Even allowing for extra diagnoses, it defies belief to think genes play a significant role. Yet this is where the money is going and it proves that genes aren’t a significant factor.

    The number of adults regressing to the adult form of autism is also rising and judging by some peoples attitudes there are signs it is affecting peoples jusdgements.

    If we can’t find a real cause for autism then we are doomed long term. For 1.7 million little children this time has ACTUALLY come before they can decide for themselves about vaccines, mercury, GMO et c but if they are like most people here they will think them absolutely FINE.

    Sad really.

    Proper science allows comments that are stupid to be tested and proved stupid. Flat earth theorists have been put in their place. But to say that mercury is an IQ improver and that altering results 5 times and getting a top job with a vaccine company is good science is a sign of something “not good”, “not right” and actually “quite scary”. Verstraeten 2003 Pediatrics paper showing mercury for an infant is as dandy as candy.

    @John Fryer: I already corrected you twice on this. Where did you get it from? Let’s see a link.

    The number of adults regressing to the adult form of autism is also rising

    WTF are you talking about?

  6. Kev April 15, 2009 at 17:39 #

    John I’d love to respond to your comment but I can’t make head nor tail of it…and fw2 – you become increasingly irrelevant, inaccurate and off-topic. Whats the point of you again?

  7. Sullivan April 15, 2009 at 18:27 #

    1.7 million children?

    Do the math and tell us what the prevalence is for that. Then tell us how you came to that number.

    More to the point–the AoA post was an obvious rant. Right from the start with the “Backwoods Doctor” comment, it was pretty clear that that person wasn’t interested in accuracy. One can be “insolent” and still accurate, as we have all seen.

    If this is the post-MMR-Omnibus Age of Autism, I cringe at how shrill the post-thimerosal-Omnibus AoA is going to be.

  8. Sullivan April 15, 2009 at 18:29 #

    “Proper science allows comments that are stupid to be tested and proved stupid.”

    And, smart people walk away from the stupid.

    Like “thimerosal caused an epidemic of autism”.

    or,

    “MMR caused an epidemic of autism”.

    We have the first part–science testing and demonstrating the ideas are stupid (your word, not mine). Unfortunately, the pack-rats won’t let go of any idea, stupid or not.

  10. Prometheus April 15, 2009 at 21:38 #

    I can’t resist….

    Mr. Fryer comments:

    “There are 1.7 million autism [sic] children in the USA. “Yesterday” there were ZERO.”

    Mr. Fryer, there are – as of the March 2009 Census Bureau estimate – 74.3 million “children” (less than 18 years old) in the US. If there were truly 1.7 million autistic children in the US, that would be 1 in 48 children having autism.

    Not even AoA is claiming that high a prevalence.

    Based on a more accepted 1 in 150 prevalence, the number of autistic children in the US would be 495,000, or 0.5 million.

    As for your claim that “Yesterday there were ZERO.”, I will assume from your use of inverted commas around “yesterday” that you don’t literally mean yesterday. Certainly, before the term “autism” was coined, there were no “autistic” children. However, only the most naive person truly believes that autism didn’t exist before vaccines.

    “The number of adults regressing to the adult form of autism is also rising and judging by some peoples attitudes there are signs it is affecting peoples jusdgements [sic].”

    That is an amazing claim, Mr. Fryer, and I wonder if you have a source for it. Or is it based on your own observations? I say this because the very definition of autism requires that it be present by the age of three years. Perhaps you are conflating autism with something else?

    “Proper science allows comments that are stupid to be tested and proved stupid.”

    Q.E.D.

    “But to say that mercury is an IQ improver and that altering results 5 times and getting a top job with a vaccine company is good science is a sign of something “not good”, “not right” and actually “quite scary”. Verstraeten 2003 Pediatrics paper showing mercury for an infant is as dandy as candy.”

    I’d suggest that you re-read the Verstraeten paper, Mr. Fryer; you missed some critical points – like the results and the discussion. I doubt that anybody outside of the State Mental Hospital is claiming that mercury is “an IQ improver” – perhaps that is your misreading of the Thompson (2007) study – read that one again, too.

    As for the rest, perhaps you’d try to be a bit less obscure in your references.

    Anyone who still argues Verstraeten et al., like Fryer or Crosby, is stuck in 2005. That was not a ‘negative result’ paper, BTW. It was ‘neutral’. That’s why the CDC kept studying thimerosal and neurodevelopmental outcomes. The alleged “cover-up” was investigated by the US Congress also, and they found nothing underhanded occurred.

  12. sharonfennell April 16, 2009 at 09:42 #

    Kev said, “A good start 🙂 I’ll be having a dialogue Gordon Brown’s science adviser at some point over the next couple of days.”

    That is good news!
    I’ll get a letter out today too.

  13. johnfryer April 16, 2009 at 12:03 #

    Hi Joseph

    The Verstraeten paper was in 2003 and the British Government claim in private communication that vaccines are safe directly from a 2004 NIH assessment which relied on many pieces of research including the Verstraeten Paper. The UK vaccine policy relies on government regulation and avowal of safety from another country. Is this good enough?

    The rates of autism have continued to sky rocket (President Obama 2009 not me). How can we allow this to happen and allow children to receive dozens of vaccinations at an extremely young age.

    I have just looked at the Katie Wright interview with David Kirby and realise she is NOT aware of the vaccine at day one for her child.

    As to a cover up (your words not mine) – I fail to see how any unobjective person can be happy with this paper in the light of other people who have shown the change of data and the loss of data. Fact – the paper states Verstraeten works at the CDC when in fact he had moved to a vaccine company which has embargoed his ability to criticise vaccines (his words not mine).

    Children have been autopsied and cause of death put down to eating adult food as an infant. How can dozens of injections of aluminium, GMO fragments, mercury et al be less harmful than adult food?

    I do hope we all want to find the CAUSE of autism and any group that digs up information in a factual way is welcome.

    People who claim that to say you work for a group dedicated to vaccine safety but actually are censored about talking about harm as you work for someone else and claim that is not dubious make me concerned as to their honesty.

    Hi Prometheus

    Not trying to be obtruse or anything else but my work on these kind of issues goes back more than 15 years and for ten of those years I would sadly not look at harm from vaccines simply because everyone has them and “no one” gets harmed by them.

    Sadly we now know that this is simmply not true from work done more than a hundred years ago eg work of Charles Richet and thousands of other workers on vaccines most of which although open to the public has not been promoted or discussed.

    1.7 million from memory comes from CDC data of this year but a quick check finds the number of 1.7 million has come up many times since 1999 through to this year. For example from last year US govt committee:

    “As this Committee noted last year, the prevalence of this disorder has been increasing globally at an exponential rate. Based on the latest evidence, we can safely say that autism and autism spectrum disorders are now at an epidemic level here in the United States, with over 1.7 million affected individuals.

    “As this Committee noted last year, the prevalence of this disorder has been increasing globally at an exponential rate. Based on the latest evidence, we can safely say that autism and autism spectrum disorders are now at an epidemic level here in the United States, with over 1.7 million affected individuals.”

    In one country this century autism rose by 133 per cent in one year. Counting is a difficult problem as numbers go up too fast.

    Sudden death after a vaccine was accepted as “coincidence”. Autism after vaccines today is accepted as “coincidence” by many.

    We CANNOT accept coincidence ANYMORE.

    As to a cover up (your words not mine) – I fail to see how any unobjective person can be happy with this paper in the light of other people who have shown the change of data and the loss of data.

    @JF: I’m sure unobjective persons would not be happy with the “change of data.”

    However, I’m not one of those persons, and I have read the 2 original Verstraeten et al. tables, and the 2 earliest drafts of the paper. All I see is that the early work had very small groups, and probably had no control for confounding. As bigger populations were considered, and as confounding was controlled for, the data changed of course. Additionally, the final results were not ‘negative’ as most people assume.

  16. Joseph April 16, 2009 at 14:36 #

    Based on the latest evidence, we can safely say that autism and autism spectrum disorders are now at an epidemic level here in the United States, with over 1.7 million affected individuals.

    @JF: Do you understand the difference between ‘invidivuals’ and ‘children’?

    That’s not the opinion of the US government, BTW. It’s the testimony of Representative Mike Doyle before the US Congress.

    But I’m glad he’s recognizing a stable prevalence of approx. 1 in 166 across all age groups.

  17. johnfryer April 16, 2009 at 14:50 #

    Hi Joseph

    “The number of adults regressing to the adult form of autism is also rising”

    The adult form of autism?

    Well, Alzheimer is very similar to what we call autism.

    Loss of talking ability for example.

    Loss of ability to use the toilet.

    Loss of ability to live independent life etc etc.

    Alzheimer’s history goes back 30 years before that of autism.

    Research shows the same possibilities of origin that of acute or chronic toxicity. Vaccines were around in these days too.

    If you take CJD as a form of autism, then coming just after the war in the region of Fred Karno’s army, again puts the question as to toxic origins. Here we have head banging as one of its features and repetitive movements.

    Again with the recommendation of vaccines every year for the elderly it again poses the question as to the formulation of vaccines which sadly for too long has been a closed secret.

    I believe we have a right to know exactly what is in our vaccines. Despite assurances of mercury removal there is no absolute admission on ANY vaccine that the amount is ZERO PPT.

    The debacle with vaccination in preparation for the first Gulf War left a trail of “broken” adult males in its train.

    Why do people deny vaccine harm? Well if you got a bill for a million quid after giving a 10 cent shot what would you say?

    WTF it seems here!

  18. johnfryer April 16, 2009 at 15:25 #

    Hi Prometheus,

    Verstraeten Pediatrics Paper 2003

    Sadly you won’t find out that the results were doctored five times before publication. It ain’t in the paper.

    Sadly you wont find out that Verstraeten has a top job with a vaccine company. It ain’t in the paper.

    Sadly you wont find the truth in the paper. It ain’t there.

    The paper is so bad that someone whould report the whole authorship to their respective professional bodies. The congressional hearing meant someone did think investigation was needed. Albeit the conclusion was like the paper, well and truly “doctored”.

    These kind of studies are directly responsible for the 1 million or more of new children that get autistic; as many paople, like yourself maybe, seem to take everything in this paper as the Holy Gospel, The Truth and Nothing But the Truth. It is now taken as “neutral” but for years was not given that tenor of neutrality but was used to deny mercury harm. Rewriting history as much as reworking the data?

    Its ok to say the paper is neutral now that mercury vaccines have been given a clean bill of health using this so called neutral paper. The toxicity of mercury has been known for thousands of years. It certainly didn’t fool the ancients but does fool the authorities in USA in 2009.

    It is a pack of lies. The USA congress saw nothing wrong with the paper but again its taken me 15 years to arrive at my current position of taking science papers with a pinch of salt.

    The Wakefield paper in comparison is model of excellence with examples of evidence for destroyed guts NEVER before realised by experts in autism after more than 50 years in their speciality.

    INBELIEVABLE.

    A direct question Prometheus. To publish this Verstraeten study as “fact” when the first umpteen lots told a different story. IS THIS HONEST work? It is clear that the data was changed and recollected until it was “FIT” for Publication but was in fact UNFIT for publication.

    The comparison of mercury to an IQ improver come in many such fraudulent studies as we know from careful toxicology that small amounts of toxic material can be more powerful in their effects than larger amounts simply because of obvious factors that small amounts will permeate or get transported into the body often on the misunderstanding that they are “useful” materials.

    For example the Italian study this year actually found one case of autism in the group with less mercury in their vaccines and found no autism cases in the high amounts of mercury vaccines.

    These results may be “true” findings but to allow them to pass through as if mercury is now discovered as non toxic defies belief in a truly honest attempt to find causes for autism.

  19. johnfryer April 16, 2009 at 15:40 #

    This blog is partly here because of a lady who I have to say I have only just heard the name of literally one day ago.

    To think that young intelligent people like Jenny McCarthy are aware of vaccine harm and won’t be put down is great news for the planet.

    And don’t start the old anti vaccine thing again. 31 vaccines by the age of 18 months is no joke and sadly I have to admit to interest here as I have studied the medical papers of many dead or damaged children and in every case you can see harm from vaccines.

    Look at those that are harmed from vaccines and study and publish the results.

    Can’t be done of course.

    Like for David Kirby and his non reported trip to the UK. Can’t report this as we have this excuse why it’s not possible.

    Supression of knowledge and lying about what is going on is not just lying but PROPAGANDA has to be waded through for anyone to find the truth about autism and sadly many people get stuck in the PROPAGANDA.

    I liked the woman from CDC who said we listen to the parents. Well is this was true there would be a massive decline in autism.

    I visited the pesticide HQ for UK and it was obvious the porter at the door knew more of pesticide safety than the scientists.

    The scientists know how to get grants and how to be treated like a leper.

    Dr Pustzai hero on TV on Monday and a telephone call from the PM and out of work by Wednesady after 35 years at his job, shows to all the down side of being a whistle blower against GMO harm. Today its Germany that faces being bankrupted by evil forces.

    Wakefield also had his five minutes with the PM before being pushed out of the country a. Hope the same doesn’t await this brave lady here.

    It is too easy to get Blown Out of the water by dishonest people.

    It also shows the MERCKY side of VACCINES.

    Hi

    The case of Harry Clark clearly gives cause for worry.

    I studied this case for the best part of five years talking to the family and government et al. My idea was based on a neuro-destroying toxic chemical. At this time no one outside of the vaccine circle were aware of organomercury in the vaccines. When the claim came back that they (vaccine scienists) hadn’t done their calculations it would be more honest to have said they wern’t aware of mercury in the vaccines.

    The family got Sally (Harry’s mum) out not by establishing innocence but malpractice. The cause of death reckoned to be an illness.

    Witnesses claimed on oath that the vaccine must be ruled out.

    Everybody including me, accepted this AT THE TIME.

    Today with now more than 250 000 VAERS and mountains of anecdotal information building up it is time to accept that the science of Charles Richet and countless other is and was always correct.

    Harry Clark vaccinated at 4.30pm and dead at 10.30pm

    Govt and Science blaming mum

    Family blaming illness

    And many like me blaming nerve destroying toxic chemicals

    You can’t rule anythiong out until you have the cause for autism.

    Harry of course did not have autism except as at the ultimate and final end of the spectrum.

    And everyone MISSING what was under there nose

    The VACCINE.

    And lots today still miss the obvious.

    Just because everyone has vaccines doesn’t mean they are safe for all people.

    Charles Richet appreciated this in 1903.

    We need to appreciate what he did in 2009.

    Despite very sensible evidence for vaccine harm the expert witnesses could switch from SBS to suffocation almost seemlessly on NO evidence at all.

    The evidence against vaccines is such that as Prof Richet showed you can almost predict harm before you put the needle in.

    A flabbergasted technician watched one subject of his get injected and watched the pain agony and death he predicted.

    No one has ever answered my question: Did Sally get vaccinated in prison and why really, did she die suddenly like here son at the age of 42?

  21. Prometheus April 16, 2009 at 18:28 #

    Quoth John Fryer:

    “The adult form of autism? Well, Alzheimer is very similar to what we call autism.”

    No, John, it’s not. Alzheimer’s disease and autism are not similar – except in the superficial sense that they are neurological disorders – in any meaningful way. Your comparisons of “loss of language” and “loss of ability to use the toilet” are below superficial – the same could be said of massive stroke.

    John, you’re not making much sense.

    I’ve been reading up on dendritic spines and had some thoughts I’d love to discuss sometime. But in the meantime, your username is deadly on this site; always bleeding into the first line of text.

    Classic. Just classic. I doubt you will see the irony in your post, but it is pretty amazing. Going straight from “taking science papers with a pinch of salt” to calling the Wakefield paper a model of excellence.

    Excuse me everyone, but if you do not vaccinate children…

    Does that not mean…

    There may be a Measles epidemic due to the numbers of unvaccinated children?

    In the next few years, the outbreaks may even infect one in so many vaccinated little ones.

    This could lead to the deaths of children who could have been saved.

    NO ONE HAS MADE THESE STATEMENTS ANYWHERE I HAVE READ YET.
