Claire Dwoskin and Dr. Stephanie Seneff were interviewed by Leslie Carol Botha, an internationally recognized expert on women’s hormone health, to discuss the prominent issues regarding vaccinations.
Dwoskin and Dr. Seneff were in attendance at the “AutismOne: The Cutting Edge Conference” in Chicago that was held on May 21-25, 2014. The annual conference helps medical consumers become more informed on autism science and treatment which were discussed by over 100 leading scientists, experts and doctors. The conference was attended by about 1200 people, seeking educational information about autism and the latest scientific research to help them understand this neurological and immune epidemic affecting children around the world, with the highest rates being found in the United States.
AutismOne invited parents to be a part of the “Healing Autism” movement to help their children by listening to the presented findings in the conference.
Dwoskin and Dr. Seneff addressed the acknowledged increases in autoimmune and autoinflammatory conditions among young children and the elderly. Botha mentioned that she chose not to vaccinate her children upon meeting two children, 35 years ago, that were quadriplegics. Their injuries were a result of vaccinations. She mentioned that because of the concerns with unknown risks that vaccines carry with them, and the lack of information about how vaccines impact health, she became involved in the issue of vaccine safety despite not having a children affected by autism.
Dwoskin is a firm believer that funding research is playing an important role in discovering the link between adverse health conditions and vaccines. With her family foundation’s backing, researchers have discovered new information relating to the rise in chronic neurological and autoimmune conditions after vaccination. Chronic illnesses and disabilities are growing in young and elderly populations. Compared to infectious diseases, chronic health conditions are far more prevalent and costly to the US healthcare system. Finding a solution to this problem is a goal of the Dwoskin Foundation, as well as to further educate the public on vaccination injuries and adverse health consequences.
Dwoskin explains that her involvement began when one of her children suffered a vaccine injury. This injury required numerous visits for occupational therapy, vision therapy, auditory processing therapy and speech and language therapy. Dwoskin observed many other children with a wide array of impairments while in the waiting rooms, which sparked her drive to broaden the available scientific knowledge on vaccine safety. She saw a big gap in the knowledge and science of how vaccines affect children’s overall health, which is how her family foundation began to fund research into this growing problem.
Dr. Seneff and Dwoskin want to find out the causal factors behind this growing epidemic so that scientists and clinicians can work together to prevent vaccine injuries and illnesses from occurring and develop more effective treatments and cures. They both are concerned with the current medical model that focuses on treating symptoms rather than identifying root causes and prevention.
A main topic of discussion was the 1 in 2 (children) statistic, which as it stands now, represents the number of children diagnosed with some type of chronic health condition such as ADD, ADHD, allergies, asthma and obesity. Alarmingly, 1 in 2 will be diagnosed with a neurological disorder such as autism by 2025 if current trends continue and preventive measures are not taken. Currently in 2014, about 1 in 50 are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
