How Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy's Son Recovered From Autism
this CNN op-ed piece, actors Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy reflect on
their son’s recovery from autism in light of the recent federal court
decision which conceded that vaccines could have contributed to another
child’s autistic condition.
Carrey and McCarthy’s son, Evan, has been healed thanks to
breakthroughs that may not be scientifically proven, but have
definitely helped, such as a gluten-free, casein-free diet, vitamin
supplementation, detox of metals, and anti-fungals for the yeast
overgrowths that plagued his intestines. Once his neurological function
was recovered through these medical treatments, speech therapy and
applied behavior analysis helped him learn the skills he could not
learn while he was frozen in autism.
When Evan was re-evaluated after these treatments, state
workers were amazed by his improvement. But although Evan is now 5, not
a single member of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, or any
other health authority has asked to evaluate and understand how Evan
recovered from autism. Instead, they simply posit that he was
misdiagnosed and never had autism to begin with.
Carrey and McCarthy believe that autism is an environmental
illness, and that while vaccines are not the only environmental
trigger, they do play a major role. Even if the CDC is not convinced of
a link between vaccines and autism, changing the vaccine schedule
should be seriously considered as a precautionary measure.

I just picked up on this and wanted to make it known. I had sent a
Christmas card to Mr. Heston in 2006 with an explanation of how we
might wish him to play a small role in the film series we are trying
to make happen this year. It seems so long ago so much has happened
since, but I do remember getting a response back. One of our group
actually played a role with Charlton. We discussed that several years ago.

in equal measure."
