White Paper Polio- Aime Lonsdorf

In the early 2000’s, a British study released that the measles and mumps (MMPR) vaccination could cause early onset autism or interfere with a preexisting condition, a study conducted by Columbia University researcher Ian Lipkin and Irish pathologist and co-author of the previous study have proved that the MMPR vaccination does not affect children with autism. However, it is still believed that there are specific substances that can irritate autism.

This is a definitial claim– it changes the way people can look at vaccinations and autism.

Google –> CNN –>>Study: No link between measles disease and autism.

There are some substances that are still believed to have altering affects on autism. Many autistic children have GI or other digestive issues, so doctors urge those with the disease to eat foods that will improve digestion. Items to avoid: gluten rich foods, dairy based products and other common allergens such as tree nuts. Other suggestions are to add vitaman and mineral substitutes. For example, iron and vitimans D, C, and B4v have had proven affects that can alter moods and even severe depression and digestive issues.

Definitial claim– How to treat eating habits.

    Hey, Aime, a few brief grammar notes:

    1. 2000s.
    2. a British study released?
    3. condition, a study = comma splice
    4. which is it: a study . . . has proved? or: Lipkin and the pathologist . . . have proved?
    5. effects, not affects
    6. Does “have altering effects on autism” mean something other than “alter autism”?

    Now for the content:

    The first statement is that vaccination might cause autism. The retraction is not identical and therefore not very effective. That it “doesn’t affect children with autism” is not at all the same as saying that it doesn’t cause it. What does it mean to say substances irritate autism, and how does it relate to autism’s cause?

    I don’t see how either claim defines either autism or vaccination. There are certainly causal claims involved.

    The second section is more clear, but seems unrelated to polio. It doesn’t indicate that eating well affects the symptoms of autism either; it only claims that autism is often accompanied by GI problems that can be ameliorated by diet. Am I missing something?

    If you decide to revise before Tuesday, try to post links to your sources so we can examine the originals.
