We see here that this child abuser has taken some true statements made by the American College of Medical Technology and twisted the truth to suit his warped penchant for enjoying the suffering of autistic children. If you decide to read Stanton's misguided opinion, his convoluted conclusion is a gem of illogic:
"They make no mention of autism but their message is plain. There is no scientific basis for using provocation or challenge testing to diagnose metal poisoning. Therefore all the evidence from this type of testing that is used to support claims of metal poisoning in autistic children is worthless. And the repeated treatment of children with chelation agents for this non-existent poisoning has no benefits but carries risk of harm.
So when will the practitioners who carry out this abuse of children be told to stop or risk prosecution?"
Stanton has taken something that we know to be true, that chelation challenge tests can be hazardous by redistributing mercury and made the tremendous leap in logic that, because the test is hazardous the poisoning is non-existent. Stanton does not allow sane people to question his opinions on his blog. He deletes all of those difficult comments. So, the logical question to ask Mike is to see if he can tell us how testing can be hazardous in conjunction with his assertion that the poisoning is non-existent. Isn't it the mercury that causes the problem by being redistributed, Mike?
Next, we have to ask Mike how chelation carries any risk whatsoever. Mike is well aware that nobody has been harmed by chelation that did not involve malpractice. Following Mike's logic, we would have to conclude that all haircuts are hazardous because some barber, sometime in human history nicked an ear, a careless mistake. OK, it's not death but it's the same inane logical sequence.
Mike ends with an unclarified question. It's not clear if he considers chelation challenge tests to be child abuse or if he considers all chelation itself to be child abuse. We also know that Mike is well aware that this is a blatant lie. He knows that children have been cured by chelation. That's common knowledge within the autism community.
So, by announcing to all of us that he is lying about this, he shows us that the National Autistic Society is an organization that promotes lying to prevent autistic children from being helped. Otherwise, the Society would condemn Stanton's dishonesty and throw the bum out.
