[2012 May] Soy formula just as good as breast milk for infant development, says new research in the journal Pediatrics "Looking at the actual data, the breast fed children scored better on virtually every test of neurological function. (Mental development index; psychomotor development index; subsets). In many cases the differences are statistically significant: scores; breast fed> soy fed; milk formula (not soy) sometimes better than soy, sometimes worse.... breast fed always higher scores... It might seem odd that it's being reported this way until you see that Badger is a member of the science advisory board of the Soy Nutrition Institute.... "

to Dr. Prescott
Letter of 17 March 2005 which was in response to Dr. Prescott's letter to Dr. Zerhouni. This letter acknowledged that "I am unable to comment on the perceived deficiencies and omission in the recent American Academy of Pediatrics Policy Statement on Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk". No concern was expressed on the relationship between low/impaired breastfeeding bonding and suicide that was documented in the letter to Dr. Zerhouni and which begged the question that such studies were too difficult to conduct since "two-thirds of all mothers in the U.S. and four-fifths of African-American mothers have weaned their infants by six moths of age" (last modified ).

Letter of 3 Feb 06, that cites the negligence of his Committee to review the relevant published scientific studies on the nutritional deficiencies of infant formula milk for normal brain behavioral development, as contained in the AAP Policy Statement "Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk" (2005) and to take corrective actions.

[Big whopping lie.] "Yes. I think any of the vaccines we have today have been tested and proven to be safe, and the credible studies don't show any relationship between vaccines and permanent injury. So we favor this and we know that unless we have vaccination rates that are in the 90 to 95% range we are not going to prevent epidemics from coming into this country of measles, of polio, from countries where these diseases are still endemic. So its very important that we vaccinate all our children."----Dr. David Tayloe, President Elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics
It should be noted that the American Academy of Pediatrics in its 1997 revision of its breastfeeding recommendations did not acknowledge the research studies that confirmed tryptophan deficits in infant formula milk which compromises normal brain development and places infants/children at high risk for the development of depression, impulse dyscontrol, drug abuse and suicidal/ homicidal violence. Further and inexplicably, the AAP did not affirm the recommendations of WHO and UNICEF that breastfeeding should be for "two years of age or beyond" (AAP, 1997; WHO/UNICEF, 1990). What does WHO and UNICEF know that the AAP does not know?  The Origins of Love & Violence: An Overview by James W. Prescott, Ph.D.
Newman (1995) has summarized the essential role of breastfeeding for healthy human development where WHO/UNICEF (1990) have recommended breastfeeding for "two years of age or beyond" that, inexplicably, is not supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP, 1997). Laudenslager, et al. (1982) have documented impaired immune system development from mother-infant separations (includes lack of breastfeeding). We shall see that breastfeeding of the human primate for 2.5 years or greater is essential to optimize the health benefits (biological and psychosocial) of breastfeeding for child and mother.

"The American Academy of Pediatrics, along with the other groups I just mentioned, served notice that they intended to enter the business of diagnosing and drugging entirely normal children for profit. That’s one of the things that has spurred the epidemic. [Interview Aug 2005 DR. FRED BAUGHMAN] ADHD fraud and the chemical holocaust against a generation of children
LES INCOMPETANTS: OPEN LETTER TO THE AAP
By K. Paul Stoller, M.D. As a
pediatrician, who has been a fellow of the AAP for two decades, I find the AAP’s
approach to the autism epidemic to be deeply disturbing. Not only have they
allowed the myth of better diagnosing (as the reason for all the notice given to
affected children) to be perpetuated, but when they were put on notice at the
CDC’s Simpsonwood meeting in 2000, that the mercury in the preservative
Thimerosal was causing speech delays and learning disabilities, they obfuscated
and hide that information. They never made good on their 1999 pledge to have
Thimerosal eliminated from vaccines and almost a decade later joined in the
protest against a fictitious TV show (Eli Stone) because it was critical of
mercury being in vaccine. Out of 132
million doses of the worthless1 flu vaccine for the 2007-08 flu season, 8
million doses are Thimerosal free. That means 94% contain the full amount of
Thimerosal was tested only once, by Eli Lilly on 22 adult patients suffering from meningitis. There was no chance for follow-up to observe long-term effects, as all of the patients in this "study" died. Even if follow-up had been possible, damage to the developing brains of very young children would have remained an unknown. Eli Lilly said it was safe and the medical community accepted it. After the creation of the FDA, its use was simply continued. The federal government has never tested the type of mercury in vaccines for toxicity. This is an unconscionable oversight failure at best, at worse it is an example that we have left consensus reality to be created by the liars, thieves, cheats, killers, and the junk scientists they employ.
How it came to pass the AAP joined these rogues and became an active participant in this skullduggery is beyond reason – is even beyond greed. They have remained silent as mercury laden vaccine continue to be exported and used in all third world and second world countries.
We are living in a time where an incredible overplay and lies and self-aggrandizing behavior and non-science is the norm. We have tolerated the junk science that has covered up the true cause of this epidemic at a considerable cost to science, the public, and our very way of life in this country. Is it stretch to realize that by putting our collective heads in the sand about the autism epidemic we have made it possible for the destruction of our very civilization?
 Dr Ayoub Speech at rally The AAP leadership knows very well that vaccines cause autism. We need not waste anymore efforts in trying to educating them, we need to indict them. They may me morally bankrupt, but they are not stupid. They have lied to legislators, they have lied to journalists, they have lied to Pediatricians, and worse of all, they have lied to you and your children.....One thing is abundantly clear, the don't give a damn about scientific truth and they don't give a damn about you or your children. I hope the autism community continues to move forward and expose all those involved who have put millions of children in harm's way.
I was the first to announce the "autism epidemic", in 1995, and I pointed out in that article that excessive vaccines were a plausible cause of the epidemic. As you know, an enormous amount of clinical laboratory research (as opposed to epidemiological research), has been accumulated since that time, supporting my position. (I did not know then that the vaccines contained mercury, although I had been collecting data since 1967 from the mothers of autistic children, on any dental work they may have had during their pregnancy.) The evidence is now overwhelming, despite the misinformation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Institute of Medicine.

Huffington Post blog.
In other words, Congress wants to study thimerosal -- the mercury containing vaccine preservative and possible contributor to some autism cases -- and that makes the powerful AAP very, very unhappy. "Any bill that contains any questions about vaccines, we are not going to endorse," one lobbyist informed the group. "There is absolutely no link between thimerosal and autism. Period. To endorse the bill implies that this is an open question, and it is not." "The bottom line," the lobbyist continued, to stunned silence, "is that we don't want to look into this. It is inappropriate to waste precious research dollars on something that we know will be disproved."

"Pediatrics, the AAP's magazine, published an attack on a previous mercury-in-vaccine/autism study that was not peer reviewed, then they refused to publish a scientific refutation of that unfounded attack," Blaxill explained as one example of this growing bias.

CASE No. 82-1232, Cossette Krause, vs F.K. Abbousy, MD et al (State of Ohio), transcipt of videotape deposition of Dr Edward Mortimer September 6, 1984.. On page 11 reads the following:
"Several years ago, because of the increasing amount of litigations over DTP, members of the so-called Red Book Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics agreed in a sense that we would sort of divide up the cases to try to help the manufacturers in these lawsuits, and therefore I and a number of my colleagues agreed to serve as expert witnesses."
"For a pediatrician to attack what has become the "bread and butter" of pediatric practice is equivalent to a priest denying the infallibility of the pope.-------Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
"We suspect financial ties between vaccine manufacturers and medical groups such as the American Medical Association and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) which endorse the (hep B) vaccine," says Dr. Orient, pointing to a substantial donation to AAP from Merck & Co. "And the federal government pays the state a bonus up to $100 for every "fully" vaccinated child. Whats their motive -- money or medicine?" Jane Orient M.D.
"the US National Academy of Sciences published a report in Sept 1993 in which the American Academy of paediatrics reaffirmed "its long standing position that the benefits of immunisation far outweigh the risks". However, Russell Alexander, a panel member and professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington, says he is disappointed that the panel did not compare the risk of vaccination with the risks of going unvaccinated!.....Since there was no comparison of immunisation with another procedure, or with being unimmunised, the conclusions of the American Academy of Paediatrics are not based on scientific reasoning and are almost meaningless. Their position only serves to illustrate the prejudice that exists within many of those interested in promoting vaccines."---Trevor Gunn BSc

Formula manufacturers "donate $1 million annually to the American Academy of Pediatrics in the form of a renewable grant that has already netted the AAP $8 million. The formula industry also contributed at least $3 million toward the building costs of the AAP headquarters." (Mothering magazine, July-August, p.60; refers to a book Milk, Money and Madness by Naomi Baumslag and Dia L. Michels (Westport, Conn.: Bergin and Garvey, 1995, p. 172))
According to a New York Times article, the Ross Products Unit of Abbott Laboratories, the makers of Similac infant formula, purchased 300,000 copies of the AAP's "New Mother's Guide to Breastfeeding" with Ross' logo and name on them. In addition, "Ross, McNeil and Johnson & Johnson were the top three corporate supporters of the academy's $65 million operating budget...each giving $500,000 or more." (NY Times, 9/18/02, C1)
