John Best, Jr. - Pathetic Scum

If you honestly believe the current NYU ad campaign is an accurate portrayal of autism, then you are a sick and pathetic excuse for a human being.

How on God's green Earth could anyone in their right mind agree with that bullshit advertisement? I wasn't kidnapped by anything or anyone.

Autism can be challenging, but anyone who thinks it's a fucking death sentence like you do, Best, belongs in an institution. People like you are a danger to society.

Beau,
Mercury is the danger to society, not those of us who te4ll the truth about it. Just think, if you're parents had known the truth when you were a baby, you wouldn't have been poisoned into autism!!!

John,

Everyone is born with some mercury in their system. It's natural.

Beau,
The phrase "Mad as a hatter" is likely a reference to mercury poisoning, as mercury-based compounds were once used in the manufacture of felt hats in the 18th and 19th century.
An early scientific study of mercury poisoning was in 1923-6 by the German inorganic chemist, Alfred Stock, who himself became poisoned, together with his colleagues, by breathing mercury vapour that was being released by his laboratory equipment — diffusion pumps, float valves, and manometers — all of which contained mercury, and also from mercury that had been accidentally spilt and remained in cracks in the linoleum floor covering. He published a number of papers on mercury poisoning, founded a committee in Berlin to study cases of possible mercury poisoning, and introduced the term micromercurialism.
The term Hunter-Russell syndrome derives from a study of mercury poisoning among workers in a seed packing factory in England in the late 1930s who breathed methylmercury that was being used as a seed disinfectant and preservative.
From 1932 to 1968 methyl mercury was released into the sea around the city of Minamata in Kumamoto prefecture, Japan. The toxin bioaccumulated in fish, which when eaten by the local population caused the largest case of mercury poisoning known. Minamata disease caused the deaths of over 1000 people and permanently disabled a great many more.
Widespread mercury poisoning occurred in rural Iraq in 1971-1972, when grain treated with a methyl mercury-based fungicide that was intended for planting only was used by the rural population to make bread, causing at least 6530 cases of mercury poisoning and at least 459 deaths (see Basra poison grain disaster).
In December 1997, a chemistry professor, Karen Wetterhahn, working at Dartmouth College in the United States spilled a drop of dimethyl mercury on her latex glove. She began experiencing the symptoms of mercury poisoning within 5 months of the exposure and, despite treatment, died a few months later.
In April of 2000, Alan Chmurny attempted to kill a former employee, Marta Bradley, by pouring mercury into the ventilation system of her car.
The first emperor of unified China, Qin Shi Huang Di, was driven insane and killed by mercury pills intended to give him eternal life.

Acrodynia is a type of mercury poisoning in children characterized by pain and pink discoloration of the hands and feet. The word is derived from the Greek, where ακρος means high (as in:in an extremity) and οδυνη means pain. As such, it might be (erroneously) used to indicate that a patient has pain in the hands or feet. However, acrodynia is a disease rather than a symptom.Also known as pink disease, erythredema, Selter's disease, or Swift-Feer disease, acrodynia was relatively commonplace amongst children in the first half of the 20th century. Initially, the cause of the acrodynia epidemic among infants and young children was unknown; however, mercury poisoning, primarily from calomel in teething powders, began to be widely accepted as its cause in the 1950s and 60s. The prevalence of acrodynia decreased greatly after calomel was excluded from most teething powders in 1954.

Natural?....Come on, beau, your smarter than that.

To the anonymous poster:

Mercury poisoning can only occur if levels are abnormal. There is a normal level of mercury. Everyone is born with it.

Chelation is only said to be 75% effective for a good reason.

Foresam said...

Beau,
Not chelating is 0% effective.

Perhaps if you were talking about mercury or lead poisoning.

But since you're not, you're incorrect as usual.

Beau,
Wouldn't you like to drive a car & be independent? Removing the mercury doesn't change who you are, it allows you to become all you were meant to be.
There are dozens of historical accounts of mercury posioning entire populations, having been damaged is bad enough, bring told not to try to heal & become all you were intended to be is irresponsible on the part of whoever it is that's feeding you all the ND lingo.
Why should you accept something that only serves to hinder the man God wanted you to be?
Having been poisoned doesn't make you less of a person, accepting that is happened doesn't change who you are.
Having the courage to take control of the situation & heal, so as to improve your health & take on lifes challenges....serves to make you stronger.
Don't sit back & calmly accept having been raped...fight back.

Beau McClelland said...

Anon, you ask me if I ever want to drive and be independent.

Drive - Hell no. Not only do I have no desire to, I can't. The motorcycles and street lights cause sensory overload.

I'd like to be independent one day. Find a girl, perhaps get married, and perhaps have a kid or two. But I lack the social skills to do so, and I'm just not ready.

Your social skills here are very good, I think that as you mature, you'll find that social situations become easier to navigate.
You'll come into your own, keep your mind open & your heart pure, the love of a good soul will find you in due time.

Beau McClelland said...

My social skills online do not represent me in real life in the slightest.

Maybe I can get better over time, certainly. Will I? I don't know.

I believe you will.
God Bless you & your loved ones through this Christmas season.

Beau, most people your age are nowhere near ready for marriage and children. Take your time, stay as open minded as you are and you will find love.

That ad campaign serves no one. It's negative impact on the autism community is one of the few things that most of us agree on.
