First Vaccine-Autism Award of Millions

10 Sep, 2010

Posted by: Natural Medicine In: Children's Health | Community | News | vaccines

In a decision that will reverberate through the vaccine-autism debate, the family of Hannah Poling has been awarded more than $1.5 million dollars to cover her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering to this point. It is expected that the family will also receive $500,000, or more, per year for the rest of her life.

This is the first time an award has been made for an autism claim. Hannah’s parents filed the autism claim in federal vaccine court in 2002.

The case is important because it is the first time the government admitted any link between vaccines and autism. Hanna was described as a normal, happy child until she received vaccines for nine diseases in one doctor’s visit, at 18 months. Following the vaccines, Hanna soon stopped eating, had frequent high fevers, and lapsed into severe autism like symptoms. She did not respond when spoken to, and began having began having screaming fits.

In settling the case, the government did a science and semantic dance, claiming Hanna had a mitochondrial disorder that was triggered by the vaccines, which didn’t “cause” her autism. There is no body of science to back such a claim.

Yet even this admission by the government, and huge payout, raises the question, of how many other children have similar undiagnosed mitochondrial disorders. Or what other disorders might interact with vaccines...

PBS Special Report on Autism

26 Apr, 2011

Posted by: Natural Medicine In: Around The Web

Robert MacNeil, former anchor of the PBS program NewsHour, takes viewers on a visit with his 6-year-old autistic grandson, Nick, to see how autism affects the whole family.

In the video Nick’s mother, Alison McNeil, states:

“… So we went from a 15-month appointment where this child was A-OK, supposedly, and given the MMR, the DTaP and the Hib vaccines. People say to me, Alison, it’s a coincidence. Alison, how do you know this happened? Well, it’s impossible for me to know. But what I will say is this: It was not a coincidence that my child was diagnosed with autism at the same time that his whole system shut down. Something happened to my child.”
