Charles Ortleb, the author of Truth to Power, interviews Dr. Michael J. Goldberg, the author of The Myth of Autism. Goldberg is the President of the Neuro-Immune Dysfunction Syndromes (NIDS) Medical Advisory Board and has been on the clinical teaching staff at both UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Hospitals. Dr. Goldberg has challenged the conventional wisdom about so-called “autism,” arguing that it is not psychological or developmental, but a very treatable medical disease. Based on twenty-three years of treating patients, he believes there is strong evidence to show that, in its new epidemic form, what is called “autism” is actually caused by a dysfunction of the neuro-immune system and often by secondary neurotropic viruses that impact the neuro-immune system and brain. He believes that “autism” is connected to illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome and ADD/ADHD. Goldberg explains why he thinks it is a tragic mistake to blame vaccines for “autism” when viruses and autoimmunity seem to be the real issues.
