Vaccines (Thimerosal) May Cause Autism – Government Concedes Liability

by Robert D'Iorio

This week the Government conceded that Mercury in vaccines such as thimerosal caused autism in an 18 month old child. The Government agreed to compensate the now 9 year old Hannah Poling and her family after it was demonstrated that five vaccinations given to her on one day significantly aggravated an underlying type of genetic disorder (mitochondrial disorder), leading to a condition which had “features” of autism. Although the government attempted to differentiate “features of Autism” from Autism, by definition there is no difference as Autism is diagnosed by its symptoms.

The Poling family will be discussing the case tonight on Larry King Live at 9:00 PM EST

This case is significant because it opens the door for over 5000 vaccine liked autism lawsuits pending.
