Autism Ideas - Part 9:
The Secret Lavender Liquid

By Mary W Maxwell, PhD
Enter at your own risk. This article may look scientific, but it's written by an amateur. I am going to play a game here, pretending that some liquid was maliciously put into the injections that children received shortly before they developed autism. I give that substance a perfectly fanciful identity by saying its color is lavender. The properties of this 'lavender liquid?' That is what we need to figure out.
This is the ninth article in my series of "Autism Ideas." Looking back over the previous eight, two can be ignored for our purposes here: #4 on the Vaccine Court, and #7 on the thalidomide doctor who got struck off the register for his later nosing into the properties of tricyclic anti-depressants. The remaining six contain ideas that bear on the new hypothesis about the 'lavender liquid.'
Those include: #1. The self-report of an adult who 'broke through' her childhood autism, namely, Temple Grandin; #2 the medical establishment's super-hyped rebuttal of the successful research by gastroenterologists Andrew Wakefield and John Walker-Smith; and #3. The resemblance of gifted autistic minds to the Kissinger-induced gifts of Brice Taylor, particularly her photographic memory.
Article #5 covered the fact that spinning has several consequences, such as bringing relief to autistic persons, causing nausea to the healthy, and preparing persons for indoctrination in mind control; and #7 contained both Lawrence Broxmeyer's theory of maternal TB infectiion and the autism diagnostic checklist of Bernard Rimland.
As for #8, which used 'Clara' as an interviewer to intrude the horrific idea of malice, we can skip over it. It is enough that I now proclaim that I suspect there was a 'lavender liquid.' You don't have to accept anything about malice to get some value out of the exercise here. Just try to imagine "What could have happened?" Such an approach might have the lucky effect of making a real scientist remember something that I haven't thought of!
My 'lavender liquid' hypothesis does not imply that I think other leads should be abandoned. Not at all. Three top contenders at the moment are: that autism was brought on by mercury (via the thimerosal that is often used as a preservative of vaccines); that the vaccine itself in some way caused the damage; and that bowel disease, whether or not related to a vaccination, was capable of reaching up to the brain to cause the autism.
Quite possibly the answer lies in one of those theories. As for why there would suddenly be a huge increase in autism starting around 1990, some believe it is quite simply the fact that children today get many more shots than they used to (a minimum of 14).
Another line of theories, concerned with the autistic child's social dysfunction can, perhaps, be set aside. I do not deny that an autistic child can live in his own world, that he lacks eye contact, and so forth. But many of the vaccine-related cases are children who had already developed normal social affections, so the key to what has happened can't be that there is some 'missing cog' in the child's head related to social performance.
Also, many parents of autistic kids -- and adult autistics such as Temple Grandin -- say that even when the child appears his unsocial worst he may be experiencing plenty of social sensitivity about it. By the way, Temple says she not only wished for a hug from her teacher, she 'craved' it.
This means, too, that we shan't dwell on the hypothesis of Jaak Panksepp who, extrapolating from animal studies, came to the view that mother-child attachment may be neurologically impaired in autism. Granted, he has done remarkable work on the neurochemistry of bonding, determining that maternal-offspring attachment involves opiates.
(In 1979, thirty-two years ago, Panksepp called attention to a possible resemblance between alcohol addiction, and the human urge for the comfort of opiates that must have come from the initial experience of the comfort of the mother. He thus envisioned that the drug Naxolone might help autistics, and indeed in some cases it does!)
Now to three more ideas that have currently got research attention. First: inflammation, that normally happens to every person after a vaccination, could be the cause of autism ­ if it 'gets out of hand.'
Second: a surge in autism cases in California in the 1990s coincided with a surge in tuberculosis there, and Lawrence Broxmeyer thinks it may be causal. Third: something called XMRV has been showing up in odd places such as in prostate cancer and may be connected to the autism mystery.
Note that those last two: the TB and the XMRV, could in fact be the 'lavender liquid!' In other words, someone could be maliciously, or accidentally, introducing either of them into the vaccines. Recall that a simian virus, known as SV-40, somehow slipped into the widely-distributed polio vaccine of the 1960s, and is now recognized as a factor that predisposes the whole baby-boomer generation to cancer. (See "Me and Lee" by Judith Vary Baker.)
Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (who looks strikingly like his late father, and is now way older that RFK lived to be!) prepared a talk for ABC TV, which got pulled at the last minute, in July 2005. In it he condemned the Center for Disease Control, and its director Walt Orenstein, for trying to suppress studies that prove the correlation between vaccination and autism. The factor that Kennedy assumed was being suppressed was the mercury-bearing thimerosal.
Of interest to his theory, and mine, is the fact that Amish children, who do not accept vaccinations, had virtually no autism at the relevant time. Dan Olmsted, a journalist, is the person who thought to search for such groups. He found the Amish, and is roaring mad that this is not looked upon by doctors as a key discovery (as it surely is!). Olmsted is co-author with Mark Blaxill of a book, "The Age of Autism," and he runs an in-depth website by that name.
Why is it wrong to mention the Amish's lack of autism? Recall the reprimand meted out to John Walker-Smith (not to mention the cancelling of his medical license) by the UK's General Medical Council. That was for his daring to publish a correlation that could lower the public's desire for vaccinations.
Probably there are scientists in America, too, who follow the twisted logic that if a doctor discovers that a vaccine is rendering the lives of thousand of children hellish, the right thing to do is suppress that information lest the population starts to resist immunizations of all kinds.
(Hmm. Another idea emerges. Does it not seem that the wise thing to do re the controversial MMR injection would be to admit there is trouble with that one, and then parents would be more willing to accept the remaining shots? Under present circumstances, with 'scare' happening, may people are refusing all shots. Could this be the 'desired' outcome? The stirring up of fear is a regular thing by the media these days. Chaos is a goal!)
A situation that is opposite that of the Amish children is that of Somali youngsters in Minnesota. They were born in the US but their families had, not long before, immigrated from Somali, as refugees. The children have a very high incidence of autism (1 in 28 schoolchildren). It seems not to be blamable on their Somali-ness, as children in Somalia are not autistic. Note: that latter point is a reminder that we have plenty of places in the world that can serve as comparisons, too.
The 'lavender-liquid' theory goes well with a sudden high incidence of autism like that of the refugees in Minnesota. If the harmful thing is just the ordinary vaccine preservative, mercury, there shouldn't be a group of people in whom the rate of autism-as-reaction is particularly high. That is, mercury ought to result in the same rate of autism outcomes wherever it is used. And the same is true if it is the vaccine itself that is to blame. So one must pay attention to the Somali 'outbreak.'
Now to the main purpose of hypothesizing about a substance that could cause autism. What part of the brain would it need to attack? And don't forget, if what the liquid does is cause bowel disease, which then goes to the brain and results in autism, that liquid still has to somehow 'know' what it is aiming at in the brain. I mean it has to end up at the part of the brain that will make the child start to show autistic symptoms.
We know some of the main things that go wrong. (Note: this discussion isn't about the type of autism that begins at birth; the 'going wrong' here is the kind of thing that happens around 18-20 months.) The child gets cranky or listless, may start to cover its ears as if it hates noise, may pull away from touch -- often not because of unsociability but because the tactile sense has become painful.
He may start to do repetitive things, including using words repetitively, he may hit his own head, he may be aggressive with others, he may scream, he may like to swing and spin, he may want to put objects in a neat row and get upset if the order is disturbed. He'll start to sniff things if his olfactory sense has become more prominent that his visual and auditory senses. Yet he might become a savant with incredible capacity for memorizing visual data.
I cannot answer the question "What must the 'lavender liquid' contain in order to result in those symptoms?" but it does seem to me that the structure of the research would include the following three things:
1. an exposition of the normal brain. For example, neuro-linguistics scientists know how the normal brain comes up with the right pronoun in speech (autistic children often use "you" for "I"). Much is known about the parts of the brain that like to impose neatness on the environment. Much is known about sensory overload and sensory integration, and so forth.
2. a charting of which interventions work well with autistic children. Naxolone was mentioned. Some children respond to the kind of drugs that are given to persons with obsessive-compulsive disorder. The point here is not to find the best intervention. Rather this item is connected to the previous one, the exposition of the normal brain. Reports of how well a certain drug works is a clue to what function of the brain has gone wrong in autism (hence, what function of the brain has been hit by 'the lavender liquid').
3. an investigation of the vaccines when they arrive in the doctor's office. Has anyone put the stuff under a microscope? I do not mean so we can see the structure of the virus. I mean so we can detect anything that does not belong there!
Finally, let's recall that the US government was a major surreptitious distributer of LSD for many years (see Hank Albarelli's "A Terrible Mistake"), and a lot of people may have developed schizophrenia as a result. The headquarters for this was Ft Detrick, Maryland, which has since become a center for cancer research. It would be foolish to rule out that autism has been deliberately caused. (Could the 'lavender liquid' in fact be LSD?)
You may wish to follow a case that is proceeding right now, in 2011, in federal district court in San Francisco. Frank Rochelle is the main plaintiff in a class action suit for thousands of US army veterans who were treated as guinea pigs without their consent during their service. They were made to sign an oath that they would not tell anyone, including their physician, what had been done to them.
Given all that has happened with regard to such 'experimentation,' I urge, with regard not only to autism, but to all the newly spreading neurological diseases ­- Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, dystonia, etc. -- that the scientist do a thought experiment. She should ask if there could be a way for a chemical, maliciously delivered, to bring about the symptoms.
