In a previous post, I talked about mounting genetic damage in each generation due to man-caused radioactivity in the environment. The article linked from the graphic shows that mercury increases DNA damage from radiation. So what we have is mercury from generations of vaccinated parents interacting with and potentiating the radiation damage of generations of radiation-exposed parents. Every generation, it takes less mercury to cause disease.
The 2012 ADDM report includes autism rate data from certain regions in selected states. They say it is a non-representative sample of the US. Yet they use it determining the the US autism rate is 1 in 88 (as on 2008). I downloaded some data back to 2000, and matched it up with EPA gross beta aerosol data from certain cities. Cities that were in the regions the ADDM uses were selected, or if no cities were available, I used a nearby city. I avoided cities 100 miles away or more. I ended up with matching data for Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, South Carolina, Utah, and Wisconsin. The autism rate was for 8-year-olds, but the prenatal beta radiation exposure is what I was interested in, so I turned the clock back 8-9 years for every sample. For example, if the children from 2008 were studied, I looked at average beta radiation in 1999-2000.
In environmental studies like this, where multiple causes are present for an effect, the data should not be pooled. Radiation is just one factor – there are vaccination rates, socioeconomic factors, lead and mercury concentration, etc. So an N-of-1 analysis was conducted, each state was considered its own experiment, and a resampling method was used which weighted each state by the square root of the number of observations per state. Of course, there are FAR too few data here to produce any kind of significant effect. But I just wanted to see what was going on. It did turn out that autism rate was positively correlated with beta radiation:
……. Kendall’s tau-b …… P <
boys ......... +.091 ................ 0.35
girls .......... +.094 ................ 0.35
combined . +.101 ................ 0.34
Montgomery AL and Barnwell SC did show a correlation.
