It has been on the news recently that the family of Hannah Poling would be compensated for injury resulting from five simultaneous vaccines that caused young Hannah to have autism.  Naturally, doctors and the media are working hard to downplay the importance of this case because Hannah also had some additional underlying medical problems that made her more susceptible to having difficulties from the vaccinations.

There is a lot of blustering from doctors about just how safe all of these vaccines are and that there is no way at all that the vaccines could be related to autism.   Hannah’s case is different.  According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, there was a document from the case leaked online which seemed to link Hannah’s autism to her vaccines, specifically “that five shots Hannah received in July 2000, when she was 19 months old, ‘significantly aggravated an underlying mitochondrial disorder’ and resulted in a brain disorder ‘with features of autism spectrum disorder.'”  So the conclusion is that the vaccines caused a “brain disorder” that has “features” of “autism spectrum disorder”.  Got that?  It is not autism, but is has many of the similar characteristics of autism.  It makes me wonder if there are many mistaken diagnoses of people who have some sort of “brain disorder with features of autism spectrum disorder” but don’t really have autism.

There is a special vaccine court for vaccine caused injuries.  There is some debate whether this vaccine court is an admission that vaccine related injuries really occur, if it is merely to placate the paranoid masses who actually believe vaccines can hurt people, or if it is just the U.S. Government’s way of giving a big, wet, sloppy kiss to pharmaceutical companies that make vaccines.  Any damages awarded by the vaccine court are paid by me, you, and the other millions of tax payers in the United States.  Employers have to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case employees are injured on the job, but pharmaceutical companies just have their congressmen pay for their mistakes.  It is enough to remind me of this comic about the influence of rich elites on legislative proposals.

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims employs eight Special Masters to handle the vaccine claims.  A special master is a judicial officer that specializes in a specific thing so as to make better informed decisions about particular matters.  It is most often used in a large civil case with very technical details that require special attention and specialized knowledge acquired through study. It is a significant thing that eight Special Masters are required to handle claims solely related to vaccine injuries.  Maybe it means that vaccines are not as safe as doctors are continuing to tell us.

The  government publishes a list of conditions that are subject to compensation when they are caused by vaccines and include nerve damage, arthritis, seizures, and a myriad of other complications.

CBS news has a very interesting article about the vaccine court, autism, and the link to vaccines.  It has to do with the case of Michelle Cedillo and her autism.  The article mentioned

Autism is characterized by impaired social interaction. Those affected often have trouble communicating, and they exhibit unusual or severely limited activities and interests. Classic symptoms of mercury poisoning include anxiety, fatigue and abnormal irritation, as well as cognitive and motor dysfunction.

While we know what these words mean, it is actually very difficult to specifically quantify and define exactly what the words mean in a clinical sense.  I would think that if I suffered from anxiety, fatigue, abnormal irritation, cognitive and motor dysfunction, (mercury poisoning) I would also probably exhibit impaired social interaction, have trouble communicating, and have unusual or severely limited activities and interests (autism).  So from these definitions it may well be possible that people are suffering from mercury poisoning and not autism.  I don’t know how many doctors there are that are trained to know the difference either.
