The U.S. corporate-government seems desperate to tamp down the discussion about the link between vaccines and neurological disorders such as autism. The corporate-government, with seemingly impeccable timing, released a study reported on by Reuters basically saying “nothing to see here, move along and keep taking your inoculations”:
A new government study adds to the evidence that thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative until recently found in many vaccines, does not increase children’s risk of autism.
It shows kids who had been exposed as babies to high levels of the preservative — through vaccines they received or their mothers received while pregnant — were no more likely to develop autism, including two distinct subtypes of the condition.
“This study should reassure parents about following the recommended immunization schedule,” said Dr. Frank Destefano, director of the Immunization Safety Office at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, and the study’s senior author.
However, two recent court cases have reviewed enough independent data to award financial damages to the victims of neurological disorders “resulting” from vaccines. These will be the first financial damages in such cases against the vaccine industry. However, in both cases Big Pharma as part of the settlement refused to admit guilt that the vaccines had “caused” the neurological disorder, but rather “resulted” in it based on other medical preconditions.
First, the case of the Poling family which was reported this week:
On the heels of a federal appeals court ruling that denied an association between autism and vaccines, the family of nine-year-old Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million to provide for her care for the rest of her life, to compensate for lost earnings, and for pain and suffering for the first year. Hannah developed autism after receiving vaccinations for nine diseases during one visit to her doctor….
According to a Time magazine article from 2008, “There are no scientific studies documenting that childhood vaccinations cause mitochondrial diseases or worsen mitochondrial disease symptoms,” as stated by the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation. Yet this court decision acknowledges Hannah’s injuries and that the vaccines aggravated an unknown mitochondrial disorder that did not “cause” her autism, but “resulted” in it.
The second case reported on by the Daily Mail is of the Fletcher family in the U.K. The family won an 18-year battle against the drug companies and Department of Health:
In a six-page judgment, they said: ‘Robert was a more or less fit boy who, within the period usually considered relevant to immunisation, developed a severe convulsion… and he then went on to be epileptic and severely retarded.
‘The seizure occurred ten days after the vaccination. In our view, this cannot be put down to coincidence.
‘It is this temporal association that provides the link. It is this that has shown on the balance of probabilities that the vaccination triggered the epilepsy.
‘On this basis, we find that Robert is severely disabled as a result of vaccination and this is why we allowed the appeal.’
The ruling will reignite the debate over the safety of common childhood vaccines, although it makes clear that Robert’s case does not involve autism.
Despite the official claims that vaccines do not cause autism, several countries are banning or limiting children’s exposure to vaccines because of other neurological disorders. Recently countries like India, Australia, and even citizens in China are beginning to reject inoculations due to health concerns and even deaths related to the shots.
With these kinds of payouts, there seems to be strong motivation on the part of the drug companies and their regulatory cronies to deflect any link to autism. Luckily for them, they don’t need to fear lawsuits from one group of Americans, the Amish, who refuse to vaccinate their children and strangely report NO cases of autism. However, having to pay financial damages to 1 out of 100 ‘mainstream’ American families who do vaccinate would likely bankrupt them — and the corporate-government can’t allow that to happen.
