In others, post mortem examin­ations concluded that the injection was the most likely cause of death. The figures, compiled by vaccine damage support group Jabs, come in the wake of last month’s decision by the General Medical Council that Dr Andrew Wakefield, who sparked the MMR controversy, acted 'dishonestly and irresponsibly'. The research also found that it has become more difficult to get compensation for vaccine damage despite no drop in the number of children being affected."

Some causes affect how the child's brain develops during the first six months of pregnancy. These causes include genetic conditions and problems with the blood supply to the brain. Other causes of cerebral palsy happen after the brain has developed. These causes can occur during later pregnancy, delivery or the first years of the child's life. They include bacterial meningitis and other infections, bleeding in the brain, lack of oxygen, severe jaundice and head injury. Children who are born prematurely or who are very low birth weight (less than 1,500 grams or about 3 1/3 pounds) are more likely to have problems that might lead to cerebral palsy. However, children who are full-term and normal birth weight can also have cerebral palsy."

Schultz S.T. and colleagues of the University of California(San Diego) analyzed data collected online through a survey of 83 children with autism and 80 control children from July 16 2005 to Jan 30 2006 and found an association between the use of acetaminophen (paracetamol) and elevated risk of autism.  Specifically, acetaminophen use after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination was linked to 6.11 fold higher risk of autistic disorder in children ages 5 years or younger, 3.97 fold higher risk in children with regression in development, and 8.23 fold higher risk in those who had post-vaccination sequelae."

►February 7, 2010 - Lord William Rees-Mogg on Sound Money, Economics and Reform - Right Side News - "Pre-Internet the suspicions of these parents would not have been broadcast beyond their immediate peer-group via blurry faxes and Xerox copies, etc. But today thanks to modern electronic communication, if a thing seems truthful and enough people feel strongly about it, then it will be written about regardless of mainstream media gatekeepers. This increasingly terrifies the elite, in our opinion. Wakefield's crucifixion - an inaccurate one at that - will likely have no impact on the debate over vaccines and autism except to further polarize the debate."

Look for much more information to come about this conference and its outcomes.  Already, its promotional material is headlined 'The World Changes in May.'  Promises are made of surprise announcements.  And this rather ominous statement is included on the conference website's front page:  Together we will redefine autism as a biomedical condition that can be treated and prevented. The past has been unkind to autism. The future is ours. We'll see you in Chicago."

* ►February 7, 2010 - Autism retract sparks furor among docs, advocates - Boston Herald - “I am absolutely certain that environmental factors are 100 percent responsible for the rise in the autism rate. Mercury and vaccines are among the primary suspects,” said Cambridge resident Mark Blaxill, director of SafeMinds, a leading nonprofit founded to investigate and publicize claims that mercury in medical products poses risks to kids. “Andy is a fine man and a terrific scientist,” said Blaxill, whose daughter has autism. “This is nothing more than a very well organized and systematic effort to intimidate and suppress the science.”

What is it with MMR? By comparison, look what’s happening with the Hepatitis B vaccine. Many medical workers were strongly urged to have this vaccine and have been left damaged and unable to work. No less than 150 MPs are backing a compensation scheme for them! All drugs have side-effects, so why do “they” claim MMR is absolutely safe?"

This man and his colleagues were one more example of the great harm the Terrorists of Health can visit upon the public. Whereas the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Jihadists hurt innocent patients with their selling of ineffective supplements and their advocating of costly lab analyses that have no basis in science (but both of which enhance the income of those who provide such things), the impact of a Dr. Wakefield is much more deadly."

* ►February 6, 2010 - Flu shot blamed for paralysis - Kingston woman on mend, hoping to walk again - Toronto Sun - "According to the ministry of health, they are investigating just four reported cases of GBS in Ontario following the province’s mass inoculation of five million people. But we’ve already told the harrowing stories of two patients who blame their debilitating onset of GBS on the swine flu shot — which they received within days of each other at the same Markham doctors’ clinic. Since then, four more GBS victims have come forward to the Sunday Sun. With the addition of a Hamilton case reported last November, that’s seven Ontario cases by our count alone. So exactly how many have really been devastated by this highly touted vaccine? And why is Quebec the only province that has a no-fault compensation program for the unlucky few who suffer such a crippling side effect?"

That would require insurers to pay for all vaccinations recommended by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Schaffner also cited what he called misunderstandings and misinformation regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, and the limited support for research, development, and production of vaccines as reasons for low immunization rates among adults."

* ►February 4, 2010 - Mercury exposure may increase susceptibility to diseases - The Johns Hopkins News-Letter - "Genetic factors may also play a role in an individual's immune response to mercury exposure. When genetically susceptible mice were exposed to mercury, they developed an autoimmune disease similar to lupus. "Given the importance of genetics in immunobiology, this may be an important area of research in understanding differences in population responses to mercury," Silbergeld said. Although much more research needs to be done to investigate the mechanism behind this phenomenon, Silbergeld hypothesizes that mercury acts on a certain type of receptor, known as the TL4 receptor, to alter the release of cytokines. Even low levels of mercury were enough to generate this immune response, and the amounts used in the experiment were well within the range of mercury exposure in the United States. "Mercury is a highly toxic agent, in all its forms - not just methyl mercury, which is the major form to which we are exposed," Silbergeld said. She also stresses that stricter regulations should be put into place to reduce our exposure, which frequently occurs in the form of fish consumption."
