On June 5, 2014, senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory made the following statement at an event sponsored by the Groton Wellness organization in Groton, Massachusetts:
At today’s rate, by 2025, 1 in 2 children will be autistic.1
Dr. Seneff repeated the prediction at a conference on Dec. 18, 2014.2 In December 2014, Dr. Seneff was interviewed about the prediction by journalist Thom Hartmann on the Thom Hartmann radio program.3 She was interviewed again about the prediction by Hartmann in January 2015 for RT television.4 In that interview, Dr. Seneff noted that she had been misquoted and that what she actually said was that “half of all children born in 2025” will be autistic. She said:
The CDC data are on 12-year-olds. People don’t realize that—kids who are 12 years old today. So when you look at 2014, you’re looking at 2001 in utero. So we want to look at the situation in 2001. Since then, things have gotten a lot worse in all the vectors—the toxic chemicals that I have identified are connected to autism. And, of course, the one I’ve really singled in on is glyphosate. I think it’s the single most prominent chemical that’s responsible for the epidemic. That is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup.4
Dr. Seneff explained how she arrived at her prediction:
If you take the data that the CDC has provided since 1975 and plot it, you can see that it’s an exponential growth curve. You can extend the line. When you extend the line, it intersects 2025 at 1 in 4, and 2032 at 1 in 2. Now, my feeling is that things are worse than the line. So I think that 1 in 2 in 2025 is not an unreasonable prediction.4
At the time of Dr. Seneff’s interviews with Hartmann, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated the rate of autism in the U.S. at one in 68 children. That estimate was based on data involving eight-year-old children four years earlier in 2010.5 6
The current CDC estimate of eight-year-old American children with autism is 1 in 59, which is based on 2014 data.7 So there’s always a four-year lag time in the CDC’s determination of autism rates and it is based on eight-years-olds, not children in utero or at birth—which is what Dr. Seneff’s prediction is based on. Using the CDC’s system for calculating autism rates, an estimate of 1 in 2 children diagnosed with autism would be not be reached in 2025 but rather by 2033. Given the four-year lag, that estimate would not be reported by the CDC until 2037.
Whether it is 2025, 2033 or 2037 or whether it is children in utero, at birth or eight years of age, the idea that a country in which 1 in 59 children are now diagnosed with autism—and there is even a possibility that in the future 1 in 2 children would become autistic—represents a public health crisis of historic proportions. The impact on America’s social structure, economy and national security is immeasurable, particularly when you combine that trend with an aging population that will, not only be unable to help care for these children, but will be competing with them for available care.
And yet, there appears to be a relatively little sense of urgency about the autism epidemic from doctors, government and the media. Unlike the alarm created by about 1,000 cases of measles reported this year, the autism epidemic has been the perpetual elephant in the room for two decades. Few people want to speak about or entertain the possibility that it is being caused, at least in part, by environmental factors such chemicals like glyphosate and even vaccines and their “synergistic effects,” which Dr. Seneff mentioned in her radio interview with Hartmann. “There are many chemicals in vaccines that are synergistically toxic with glyphosate. We’re getting more vaccines on the agenda,” Seneff said.3
The fall back theories are that autism is genetic or that there really is no epidemic at all, that the rising rates are simply due to greater public awareness and reporting of autistic-like symptoms, as well as a more liberal classification of the disorder. That is a theory that has been espoused by pediatrician Paul Offit, MD:
I don’t think there’s an epidemic of autism. I think that if we went into a time machine, and went back 30 or 40 years, and use the same diagnostic criteria that we currently use to diagnose autism, and introduce it into the communities so that everybody is aware as they are now, and also make it very clear in that community now 30 years in the past that you will qualify for services if you have this diagnosis, I think you would find that the incidence of autism would be the same 30 years ago as it is now.8 9
In the 1980s, the autism rate in the U.S. was reported at 1 in 10,000 children.10 According to Dr. Offit, that rate was wildly inaccurate and so there is no need for alarm. Everything is as it has always been. Will this same “Emperor’s New Clothes” mentality be as readily accepted when the estimate for autism reaches one in two children?

This is quite frankly the biggest crime in all history.
Paul Offits name is firmly at the top of the list of perps.
If Americans are serious about fighting this crime, we have to first repeal the 1986 law that grants immunity to all vaccine makers even if a child dies…
Can you say that a lot louder so every one can hear it
I think one of the problem here is that some people (and widely promoted by media) think that autism is ok and it is normal and kids/adults with autism are normal. I understand that these kids/adults can be very smart and bright and probably more then “normal” (and some of them even smarter than somebody without autism) but it is not a reason to say it is a norm…I think this statement takes away a reason to look why children becomes autistic.
I am eager to know what in hell creates a ‘genetic’ disorder to spread like an epidemic.
Dr. Paul Offits comments were not so much that we actually have one in 10,000 now, but that autism in children 30 years ago was actually one in 59. A more absurd statement cannot even be imagined. No one noticed children with major gut issues and banging their heads on walls? No one noticed a lack of development? No one noticed ADHD and other things now “on the spectrum”? Of course not, because they weren’t there.
The health catastrophe in the US is money-driven. If there were no profit in pesticides, or in the many toxic vaccines now forced on our children, we would have a chance at being a reasonably healthy nation. If one looks at the health statistics…..neonatal survival, diagnoses of autism and of auto-immune disease, the nations who use the least pesticides and vaccinate the least have the best outcomes. Statistically, the US, with the highest number of vaccines and the highest vaccination rate in the world has the worst health outcomes. We are, for example #77 down the list for neonatal survival.
The 77 is something needs a t shirt
77 is the new #1 survival rate in USA
America the great 77 th in survival rate
It peeves me to no end when I keep hearing “the powers that be” say it’s purely genetic. If that were true, the rate of autism would only grow at the rate that the population rate grows … duh. Clearly, much more is going on here.
When I first read this in 2014 it took my breath away and now that I’m seeing it again—IT STILL TAKES MY BREATH AWAY!
Offit’s comments are disingenuous. When growing up 50+ years ago it was very rare to know of a child with autism. Today I know of numerous families with an autistic child. It is not as though autism is difficult to notice. Without doubt Offit has a conflict of interest in that vaccine manufacturers without doubt are significant donors to the Perelman School of Medicine where he is the Professor of Vaccinology. It is extremely troubling that government, social media and news media among others are attempting to silence any actual science into the causation of autism. There is great evil at work.
Dr. Paul Proffit priority is his bank account which he likely spends his daily research on. He gets defensive if challenged and creates a story line like ‘everything is as it always has been’
??? I never encountered a soul with autism or ADHD in my years in education in the 50’s and 60’s; but I have seen a good many in my grandson’s time.
In California, the darkness is falling on school-age children. I am a hardcore anti-vaxxer but my grandchildren will be forced into vaccination because of very strict laws. Their parents who work can’t stay home and homeschool, and they aren’t moving. My warning: don’t let the Democrats take over your state and turn it into a vaccine gulag.
If your children can’t avoid vaccinating their kids, how are they going to afford to take care of disabled children?
Can we PLEASE STOP pussyfooting and being polite here? Hello? We’re beong genocided. Duh??
And Paul Offit is just another of the quack frauds out there trying to be an elitist. Doctor- my fanny. He’s only doing his (((job))) as a member of the cabal that is trying to OFFit us dumb little sheeple, the useless eaters. That’s how (((they))) refer to us FYI
Some things are so stupid, only academics can believe them.
“Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.”
The real reasons for the unleashed propaganda war against the facts about Autism is that it is about a total control of a large population by shadow unelected elite. The WWII documentaries exists that show how Nazis experimented with toxic neuro chemicals to achieve the “subdation” in the otherwise healthy people: 1940’s archived videos of skeleton like and starving people on their hands and knees trying to eat grass in a cattle like fashion! Those people had very AUTISTIC expressions and they were not held at a gun point! The basic idea is to reach the balance between making a functioning human completely compliant yet able to perform tasks like labor intense jobs. Concentration camps were labor camps where prisoners produced supplies for Hitler’s war machine. The German war criminals moved safely to the USA and Canada to share their “scientific” advanced methods. Just like much publicized nuclear science cooperation between U.S. Military and Nazi scientists , theDr were people who operated on healthy women and children, drilled down to the bone their teeth, transferred blood from a minor child to an injured SS officers and put toxic gas into showers to exterminate the unwanted prisoners. Now we have advanced dental industry and Big Pharma with all its prior history of using people in WWII. And autistic people are less likely to have psychological resistance to bombarding messages, less likely to form independent opi nion, even if they are good at math, music, etc. Convenient, isn’t? And Bill Gates talked out loud in mid-1990′ about OVERPOPULATION! Then Bill Gates turned into a vaccine crusader in 2000’s? He simply eliminates a control population where otherwise there would have been no vaccines and more apparent lack of autism. It is a story that started in the 1930’s, not recently.
When my daughter was young and broke a rule, she was held accountable. “You knew the rule, you broke it, and now you have to pay the consequences,” was our stern parental admonishment. When all other arguments failed, she would finally blurt out, “well, it’s a stupid rule!” The way Paul Offit and his ilk respond to challenges regarding the increase in diseases concurrent with the increase of vaccines and other chemicals being launched upon our kids reminds me of that juvenile line of reasoning: just challenge the data that proves your position is wrong. (“Well, the facts you cite are stupid!”) According to the old saw, “Can a sick man prove that he has no fever by breaking the thermometer?”
We now know that many things change our genetics. AT ANY TIME IN OUR LIVES. Our DNA has “switches” that are thrown from what we expose ourselves to…even experiences we have. YES, SURE. BLAME THE GENES as long as you ALSO blame the vaccines and toxins that are THROWING the SWITCHES. Mainly Vaccines.
The Globalists want the populous to be dumbed down, with Autism because they want worker bees who don’t complain or think too much. Until the parents stand up against this ternary, our future is lost.
The worst part of this is proposed and/or actual enforced vaccine schemes by government. At least when there is a choice, people can do the research and decide for themselves what is best for their children.
From California where darkness is taking us.. i always said my daughter will be only vaccinated if i am dead and no longer kicking. Now its “forced vaccination”. Nothing is forced in terms they dont yet come in to my home kill me and vaccinate kids. Sure its way more difficult to live alternatively but its possible. Why nobody suing here Ca government for launching Sb 276 which wud put us here on hands and knees and some wud even feel “forced to vaccinate”. Wheres Rfk, all good lawyers who sue Cuomo in Ny? Where is hunger strikes in front of Sacramento capital?? If its a little or even a lot more difficult to stay against WHY are we giving in???? Or just brandishing here on the forums???
I’m with Num… We need to return financial responsibility for vaccines to the pharmaceutical companies…that is the fight… Then you will see some unnecessary vaccines go away because they’ll be busy paying money out… And I don’t think that at that point they will be forcing all the vaccines that they’re trying to force now.
Return financial responsibility for vaccines to pharmaceutical companies…
Return financial responsibility for vaccines to pharmaceutical companies…
Return financial responsibility for vaccines to pharmaceutical companies…
22 years ago I started my own literature research, etc on the dangers of vaccines. From talking to the leaders in the area like Dr. Scheibner to Dr. Tenpenny, going to doctors offices and requesting vaccine inserts and hours upon hours of internet research. It was my passion you see, because I found it ludicrous that the hospital wanted to give our newborn Daughter the Hep B vaccine. Why? We were not IV drug users, I was (and am still not LOL) a prostitute, etc. Made zero sense to me, so I emphatically told them under no circumstance were they to jab her with one needle. If they did, I would sue the entire hospital, Doctors and Nursing staff from top to bottom. Our Daughter is now an incredibly healthy 22 y/o, no vaccines in her system – EVER. I was so passionate about the subject, I tried to spread the word with Family, Friends and co-workers. My Parents took heed and genuinely wanted to hear any information I had. The same with my Inlaws. Other than that….no one would listen. No matter how hard I tried, I got ignored and even cussed at. I have completely given up on sharing the vast amount of information I have gathered over these 22 years, unless someone asks me. You cannot force the average, typical mind-controlled American to think for themselves, you simply cannot. This article proves that point…they just keep on and keep on vaccinating. All I have to say is good luck you foolish people. Those like us who have been criticized relentlessly by the “average-typical” will prevail in the end. And after all of these years of busting my rear to help others understand, I am finally OK with that. 🙂
Thank you, Kimberly. I wholeheartedly agree, and it has been disheartening how little most people care to listen to the true facts about vaccines. They have been brainwashed to the point that they are close-minded. The sad part is that it hurts not only themselves and their children, but our society, country, and the world who have fallen for this sick, greedy, propaganda. It is unimaginable what we are facing over the next ten years.
A few years ago a study at UC Davis MIND Institute concluded that the changes in diagnostic criteria and “awareness” could explain no more than 1/3 of the increase in the autism rate. Paul Offit’s opinion and words aren’t worth the paper they’re written on, even toilet paper.
Kimberly: i like yr optimism but prevailing is nowhere in sight, esp here in Ca and Ny. They prevail not us. Also any plans for grandkids? Depending where u are not vaccinating grand kids if that be yr daughter choice might be not as easy as back 22 yrs ago.
I AM Doctor and I witnessed direct vaccines injury , in my family – a debilitating condition of rheumatoid arthritis affected a close relative shortly after swine flu scare in 2009 . I was pregnant at the time and nothing seemed to make sense as to why this untested adjuvant laden toxic cocktail was being advertised as a life saver! There were thousands of people lining up to get it freely! I flat out refused! And my relatives were scared into it! Result. At least 10 colleagues I knew and a direct family member became chronically ill and debilitated within a month of this shot! I am no stranger to vaccines myself as I had to have numerous Hep B boosters to get my degree which caused me to have severe unexplained allergies ( I never had any allergies before these shots- which I had to take in 1993 when I was still in university)
The Vaers database exploded at the 2009-2010 time frame with thousands of reports of spontaneous abortions to severe side effects , neurological disorders, inflammatory diseases , and unexplained deaths. That outnumbered the media reported so called flue deaths a thousand to one . I have tried and tried educating people as to the severe side effects of vaccines . Most are not properly tested, when they are they are tested directly by the same people who manufacture them, they are all immune from lawsuit! The doctors are immune from lawsuit as well , however they can lose their license if they “educate the public” as to dangers of vaccines! My child was thrown out of every pediatrician office for not being vaccinated! The Doctors don’t dare talk down to me as they do to general public, however I have been called by some as “Perpetrators of child disease and death” and child abuser and neglectful parent! This so called neglectful parent can tell you every molecule in any given vaccine with every possible side effect, I have spent thousands of hours researching vaccine related injury and I will never buy into absurd deliberate suicidal homocidal propaganda .
@Num, I read your link to the “National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986” (https://www.nvic.org/injury-compensation/origihanlaw.aspx), and now I am puzzled! For years, I was under the impression that this law grants immunity from lawsuits to vaccine makers. But I can’t find any words to this effect in this article! In fact, on the surface at least, it sounds like a sensible law! Specifically, the article says “The law preserved the right for vaccine injured persons to bring a lawsuit in the court system if federal compensation is denied or is not sufficient or when there was evidence a drug company could have made a vaccine safe.” What am I missing here?
The law’s “protections” were, in effect, removed via Supreme Court decision, Brusewitz, monsieur Steven Bastiat Smith.
I don’t doubt that under the current classification system that more children would be classified as autistic than 30 -40 years ago. Some of the additional autistic children may be the higher functioning autistic kids
A 2015 study in JAMA Pediatrics argued that 60% of the increase in autism among Danish children could be chalked up to changes in how autism is diagnosed and tracked. That could explain some of the increase, but most cases of autism spectrum disorder are still children diagnosed with traditional autism and 40% of Danish kids increase is unexplained.
I certainly think some combination of vaccines, glyphosate, RF- EMF radiation, and perhaps GMO foods are reasons for the neurological damage to some children that result in autism. In addition there are a host of other neurological and physical illnesses in children caused by the same things that are resulting in over 50% of children having some form of chronic illness (allergies, Asthma, ADD, etc) requiring some form of medication or treatment
Big Pharma, Big Agra and Big Telecom have captured regulatory agencies and elected government officials. They no longer represent the people but instead serve Big Corporations
Ignoring this is a crime against humanity. Hope there is enough rope for these criminals
But one thing we should consider. Motivation. After all, can so many people be behind evil doings without justifying it somehow in their minds?
Consider this. Sick and impaired children become sick and impaired adults. They will have fewer children and consume fewer resources due to poverty. Presumably the may die earlier. Life expectancies have already begun declining and fertility rates are at below replacement levels. Fits in with the neo-malthusian green agenda. Perhaps thats part of it, along with greed.
This may be a bit too conspiracy theory, but I suspect that the older generation who can no longer care for these children and the all the damaged autistic population will be scheduled for elimination because there will simply not be enough resources to care for them all. It’s a lovely, convenient “reason” (excuse) for more population control. How’s that for crazy talk?
I greatly appreciate Dr. Seneff’s research and advocacy, and I do agree that glyphosate is causing a lot of harm, but I think that it is a mistake to consider it the primary cause of the autism epidemic. Dr. Thomas’ data suggests that his “vaccine friendly plan” reduces the incidence of autism by about 90%. This wouldn’t be the case if glyphosate was the primary determinant. I do believe that it increases susceptibility, though, and subsequent damage.
Perhaps delaying and spacing out vaccines allows for the toxic load to be processed in a less damaging way. I have recently read that Glyphosate bonds with aluminum in vaccines causing it to be even more damaging.
I think so. Also,Thomas doesn’t recommend certain vaccines altogether, such as Hep B, and I am sure that helps too.
It may be that certain factors, such as antibiotics and pesticides, load the gun (so to speak) but vaccines are (usually) needed to pull the trigger.
“Perhaps delaying and spacing out vaccines”
Why do that? There is not a single study that confirms that vaccines work. Vaccines bypass the immune system. In fact there are NO safety studies on any of the vaccines on the childhood schedule so how can anyone say any vaccines works when they have not been tested using the Gold Standard of research: A Randomized Double Blind Placebo Controlled study using a Control Group and a inert placebo.
JULY 9, 2018 STIPULATED ORDER CONFIRMING NON-COMPLIANCE WITH 42 USC 300AA-27C. In 1986, Congress charged Health and Human Services (HHS) with the primary responsibility of ensuring vaccine safety after removing product liability from vaccine manufacturers as part of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. You cannot sue a vaccine manufacture for any damaged from a vaccine. It is the only industry with blanket liability given to the by the government. As part of the 1986 Act, HHS is required to create a task force and submit bi-annual reports to Congress detailing actions taken to ensure vaccine safety. This stipulated order shows that HHS has not acted in its duties regarding vaccine safety, forcing 78 million American children into a vaccine program with no safety provisions. HHS has violated this order for 32 years. https://icandecide.org/wp-content/uploads/whitepapers/Stipulated%20Order%20copy.pdf
The MMR for example was Grandfathered in. All vaccine manufactures are required to provide clinical trial data on each vaccine. You can find them online. Required by Federal Law. The MMR has no such information which means NO trial were done Pre-Licensure. There was no safety study done. Dr. Stanley Plotkin, the Godfather of Vaccines and is the author of the vaccine orbits bible- Vaccines, when questioned in a deposition on Jan 11, 2018 about the safety clinical trial of the MMR he could not provide the name of a study despite he had the Vaccine Bible with him A study obtained via FOIA on the MMR was done 7 years after it was injected into millions of children. This study used less than 200 children for a vaccine that has been injected into millions, was not submitted to the Gold standard of research AND the MMR was tested against the MMR in a different lot-no inert placebo or control group and only for 6 weeks. That MMR study showed that half of the children suffered upper respiratory illness/distress (which the MMR is suppose to prevent) and gastro distress for the entire 6 weeks.
There are no safety or efficacy studies done as pursuant to US Code 42 USC 300AA-27C since 1987. Prior to 1987 there are no safety studies according the HHS.
Even the EPA says there is no safe amount of aluminum to inject so how would spacing vaccines be less damaging? Aluminum is put in the vaccines to stay in the body-unlike ingesting which is a direct route out of the body via the digestive system.
Would you put your child in a car that was NEVER safety tested.
I was not recommending that anyone delay or space out vaccines. In fact, I agree that they should be avoided altogether.
However, the point of my comments here was to make the case that it is vaccines, not glyphosate, that are the main driver of the autism epidemic.
The response was to Darby. Sorry if that wasn’t clear.
Love this article.
I don’t understand. You mean, I may get Covid from someone that’s been vaccinated, through their breathe or spittle
