Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

Vaccines Cause Autism. And that's the way it is. Also, they are made in CHINA. Do you SERIOUSLY trust the Chinese to make a vaccine?

Also, the H1N1, which was simply corporate fascism for profits, is now being put inthe SEASONAL flu shot. Do NOT get this shot!

Here's the link to the article and also copied below.

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 [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]pain[/COLOR][/COLOR] and suffering for the first year. Hannah developed autism after receiving vaccinations for nine diseases during one visit to her doctor.
Hannah’s family will also receive more than $500,000 per year to cover their daughter’s care. Although this case was settled before trial by the government in 2007, the compensation was not agreed upon until now.
Hannah Poling and Mitochondrial Disorder
Hannah was vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]polio[/COLOR][/COLOR], varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus inflluenzae during one doctor’s visit at age 18 months. At that time, thimerosal (a mercury-containing preservative), which some experts say may cause or contribute to autism, was still being used in children’s vaccines.
Soon after receiving the vaccines, Hannah stopped eating, developed high fevers, began having screaming fits, and showed signs of [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]autism[/COLOR][/COLOR]. Her parents then filed an autism claim in federal vaccine court.
A factor that compounds this situation is the fact that Hannah has a mitochondrial disorder, in which her basic cell metabolism dysfunctions. Symptoms of this disorder can range from muscle weakness to diabetes, developmental delays, cardiac or [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]liver [COLOR=blue ! important]disease[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], swallowing problems, poor growth, muscle pain, loss of motor control, and susceptibility to [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]infection[/COLOR][/COLOR].
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.
Approximately 1,000 to 4,000 children are born with a mitochondrial disease each year in the United States. There are dozens of different types of mitochondrial disease, including Alpers disease, Barth [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]syndrome[/COLOR][/COLOR], carnitine deficiency, and Pearson syndrome. These diseases mainly affect children, but adults can develop these diseases as well.
In 2008, the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation released a statement in response to the Poling case, noting that “There are no scientific studies documenting that childhood vaccinations cause mitochondrial diseases or worsen mitochondrial disease symptoms.” The court in this case decided that Hannah’s underlying disease increased her risk of injury from the vaccinations.
While Hannah Poling’s family will receive more than $1.5 million compensation for their daughter’s care, it cannot reverse the damage that has been done. This case raises many questions, one of which is how many other Hannahs are out there. One thing we do know is that nearly 5,000 families of children with autism have filed claims for compensation through the federal government’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

i understood that mercury is no longer used in vaccines. Its not the vaccine itself that causes the problems. And what does china have to do with anything? If its in a supervised plant being approved by worldwide medical practicioners, who cares where its produced?

Can't even cut and paste properly, and so much bad science, it's not even worth rebutting.

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

I second the three posts above, and note that any "journalism" that refers to "federal vaccine court" loses credibility instantly. WTF is that and where is it located? Next to the Federal Naughty, I Told You So Court and two streets down from the State He Called Me Nasty Names Court?

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

You should know that the Andrew Wakefield, the guy (read moron) who wrote about the connection has been thoroughly discredited as a phony and his article was even retrieved from publication by the lancet.
You can read more about it here, easy to read since it is wikipedia.
I like conspiracy theories when I am reading a crimi novel, not when it has to do with health and creating misconceptions that can be dangerous. And for the record, diphteria-tetanus-pertussis (DPT) is ONE vaccine, not three.
Ignorant rants like the ones from the OP really make me lose my patience.

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

If any of it is true (which I really really doubt.... so sorry) the only dubious individual would have been the medic who administered 9 vaccines at the same time. That's just absurd.

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

Measles can cause pneumonia, encephilitis (?), deafness, death. And now because of this debacle, a disease that had been mostly eradicated is coming back big time, and maiming and killing again. This is so tragic. Stop peddling this *****

Re: Vaccine-Autism Court Award of $1.5M to Poling Family

I'd like to apologize for this outburst please- but this tuff has to be challenged. The thought of my beloved grand-children being at risk because of the low immunisation rate is making me very upset. Thanks for your understanding.

No apologies sought or due.

For a slightly less hysterical, one might even say factual or informed, summary of the situation than that provided by the OP, one might want to head here.

The trained eye will note that this is virtually all old "news": the only material thing that has changed in the intervening 28 months ("On the heels of..." in zurcher's parlance) is the announcement two days ago of the level of "compensation" awarded.
