I find your responses on this board remarkably reasonable, intelligent, and cool-headed.

True, my 6 year old has no problem with gluten. I'm just beating myself up as I knew my 9 years old was flairing but I was in denial....gf is a tough gig to sell to an already picky eater;)

I do know some ASD kids who have come back with higher than normal lead and mercury levels, their parents have gone the route of chelation via topical creams and supplements. I've not had my kids tested, mainly cost and I too am very wary of chelation in general.

Lol I was thinking it was a bit odd myself.

ITA. I read a mod's post somewhere that said no 5 pages posts and I've seen my share lately. My husband likes to say "TLDR" when he sees me reading some of these posts.

Let me start out by saying I'm glad you're here citizendeux (Jon). I won't be posting a lot for a few weeks but while I still have time, I'm gonna try to catch up in the next few days (before I get too busy). I do still have three threads that I need to get back to, when I get more time.

"They are not based upon a standard for the population or children."

Who says that "standard" is even correct? I personally believe that standards in government schools has been much more harmful than helpful. You can not force all humans to be exactly the same. They are not. So in medicine, as well as in learning - one size does NOT fit all. That is the biggest mistake we continue to make, in both education, and health-care.

And where in science is it written that once someone decides something is "standard" that they should never revisit it in the future???

Gee, by that way of thinking, the earth would still be flat...

I've noticed that once you pro-vax people decide that something is fact, you will never allow it to be reconsidered. Why is that?

"Some, obviously, seem to think that there are agendas and hidden meanings."

The only thing "hidden" is proof of those facts your side continues to talk about without ever posting links to.

Patience?

You don't need patience, just the facts will do. Post links instead of your own words, that will reduce the arguing.

I don't know what "TLDR" is, but I wasn't aware of that rule. I guess its been a while since I read the TOS, I'm sure they have changed over the years.

I seriously don't mind a five-page post. If that is what it takes to get the point across, then its worth reading, especially if one plans on debating that point. I usually have to put them off until I'm in the mood or have more time. I have so many bookmarked, but I will try and at least read the entire post, and even reply. But sometimes, the reading has little or nothing to do with the point being debated...

Do you simply choose not to select the links provided?
