Sometimes I just want to shake humanity and scream WAKE UP.

However, I don't do this due to legal ramifications.

Let me give you some advise. Real advise. 

If there was ONE thing, be it chemical, natural herb, essential oil, something in pill form, extract, or whatever that could POSSIBLY give non-verbal children with autism the ability to speak...Do you reeeeeeally think no one would have capitalized on it yet?


1 in 65 boys. That's a lot of kids. A lot of parents. Parents that would somehow find a way to buy whatever it was in order to help their child even if it meant selling their house and cars.

You don't think pharmaceutical companies don't know that? You really think Pfizer is sitting on the ability to sell this? Seriously? Dude, if you believe that I got something to sell you. Great property. Oceanfront. Located in sunny Arizona.

I have **no** issue with maijuana. It's ridiculous it's not legal everywhere. 

But if you think for one second there was something out there that could be marketed to even potentially help these kids you may be the definition of future Social Darwinism. If so, good luck with that.

Examples of horse crap:

1. Vaccines cause Autism! I know it! It's the Mercury! It's a conspiracy!

2. One sort of Mary Jane extract giving speech to non-verbal kids
"Boy gains ability to speak after just two days of cannabis oil treatment!"

3. Essential oils (do you guys really not know what a pyramid scheme is? Why don't you google it (and also how the FDA has never approved that crap to be digested).

Homework: Read these responses to the above:


A. The doctor that "discovers" vaccines cause autism:

"On 28 January 2010, a five-member statutory tribunal of the GMC found three dozen charges proved, including four counts of dishonesty and 12 counts involving the abuse of developmentally challenged children.[12] The panel ruled that Wakefield had "failed in his duties as a responsible consultant", acted both against the interests of his patients, and "dishonestly and irresponsibly" in his published research."

B. Jenny McCarthy may have been a playboy bunny, but she's right!!

"In the panic created by the Wakefield article, England saw MMR vaccination rates fall to 80 percent in 2004 and Wales to 78 percent. In 2012, England and Wales had the highest number of measles cases in 18 years.

These are dangerous illnesses, and the victims of an outbreak are often infants too small to have yet received vaccinations. Jenny McCarthy styles herself a “mother warrior.” If so, the kids sickened in the fallout from reduced vaccinations are the victims of friendly fire. Nothing good can come from undoing one of the miracles of medical progress."

2. Mary Jane for kids is a miracle!!  ***Please read this article

"The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is opposed to the use of medical marijuana for children, regardless of diagnosis, and research into its use on either adults or children with autism is nonexistent. Anecdotal evidence abounds, however, with Autism Daily Newscast citing the heartbreaking case of Alex Echols, an 11-year-old boy from Oregon whose story is chronicled in the blog Alex Needs Help."

Sounds great…except if you look at the most recent blog post of Alex Needs Help, his family is no longer finding success with treating their son with marijuana. I’m not judging Alex’s parents at all here. I understand the desperation and the need to go beyond the standard medical offerings when things are just not helping your kid."

What’s missing from the coverage of Alex’s story, and other stories like his, is the explanation that his parents aren’t actually trying to treat autism, they’re trying to deal with a behavior. It may not seem like a big difference, but I think it is."

3. Essential oils can help kids with autism! Or cure it!

"Along with the rise in people using “essential oils” as an alternative remedy for what ails them, incidences of children being exposed to toxins in these oils has risen as well.

A Tennessee poison center reports that between 2011 and 2015, 4 out of 5 harmful exposures to these oils involved children."

Wake up. Take a step back and really think. Could this help, or is someone taking advantage of our guilt/fear/pain for monetary gain?

When you figure that out, you'll stop passing around this crap over and over year after year. 

If the above evidence isn't enough for you:  Just send your kid to me. I'm not mother of the year, but I at least try not to administer toxic chemicals into my kid.
