Pardon?
Just off to work so haven't got too much time but to counter the claims of the OP;

ivstartblog.com...

www.skepticalraptor.com...


The only definitive way that any medicine can be proven useful or harmful is through proper testing.
Not through a court of law.
Think about it.



When you return from work, a good source is actually the OP source, (when you follow it back to whiteout press.
)


2. In the case of Ryan Mojabi, the court ruled that (on the preponderance of evidence - ie more than 50 per cent likely) the vaccine caused Ryan's encephalopathy - not autism. As David Kirby reports in the Huffington post, "Whether ... Ryan's ... vaccine-induced brain disease led to ASD [Autism Spectrum Disorder] is unknown. The concession document is under seal.

3. In the case of Emily Moller, according to David Kirby, "HHS [The US Department of Health and Human Services] did not admit that vaccination caused encephalopathy or autism, but merely decided not to dedicate more resources to defending the case."

4. Although it is true that the HHS underwrites autism treatments for children in its vaccine-injury programme, it has "never concluded in any case that autism was caused by vaccination."

For clarification. The jury is out on whether encephalopathy 'causes' autism. Most children with autism have never had encephalopathy according to the CDC.

The overwhelming weight of scientific evidence on the considerable amount of research into a purported link between vaccines and autism shows no such link exists. The preponderance of evidence required to make such a finding in a scientific study is considerably more than the 51%:50% preponderance required in the 'vaccine court'.


www.whiteoutpress.com...

While I took the time to find the actual court proceedings in other posts, it seems the OP source material actually debunk itself.

I believe the source of this source is NN, but it seems the whiteout press version was unbiased enough to post rebuttals to the article.

The hoax is that the money was paid out for autism, but instead it was actually for a bad reaction to the vaccine, which is customary as it's known that a small percentage of people react badly to vaccines and an appropriate oversight body is there to deal with it.

 


To further elaborate on this, (because confusion is possible) even if the court "found that the vaccine caused autism" it does not mean that vaccines cause autism.

Luckily, courts do not decide scientific facts.

I bring this up because in Italy, a court actually did rule that a vaccine caused autism. So I believe it is relevant. Also relevant is that another Italian court charged a group of scientists for not predicting an Earthquake. It seems that court rulings related to scientific findings are not without their discrepancies.


Italian courts, provincial or otherwise, are not known for basing their rulings in science. They are, after all, part of the system that led to a manslaughter conviction of six scientists for not predicting the 2009 L’Aquila earthquake, disregarding completely the obvious fact that such predictions are not, in fact, scientifically possible. In a similar way, the Italian court that made the MMR-autism ruling–the centerpiece of this latest “courts confirm” tripe–ignored completely the science made available to it and focused almost solely on the retracted Wakefield paper and a physician with a COI in making its decision. A decision that is, by the way, under appeal.


www.forbes.com...

If anything, these kind of examples show us exactly what bad science can bring out in the courts. And while I agree drug companies are full of skeletons and shady dealings, the demand should be for better unbiased scientific study, rather than jumping on a bias bandwagon.

hurdygurdy
My uncle was born in 1938 and my grandma had many photographs of him as a robust, healthy baby until he was around 18 months. She told me he became ill and he was never the same afterward. She also told me he was one of the first babies to be vaccinated against measles, I believe. This conversation took place several decades ago when I didn't know about the correlation between vaccinations preserved with mercury (thimerosal) and autism.

I only knew him as an adult who didn't quite fit in; extremely routine-oriented, methodical and somewhat compulsive; especially work ethics. But he was labeled by the public education system as mentally retarded. He attempted several times to pass 10th grade without success. But he did manage to obtain a driver's license when he was 16 and held a full-time job as a custodian at a restaurant for 40+ years. He did odd jobs and yard work on the side.

He was autistic without a doubt, based on current day information. Thimerosal was discontinues as a vaccination preservative in the 40's, possibly when the pharmaceutical companies realized their mistake, only to be introduced once again as a vaccination preservative in the 1990's.



The measles vaccine wasn't developed until the 1960's some three decades after your uncle was born so it couldn't have been that.

Also, the only correlation between thimerosal and autism is the fabricated one which anti-vaxers for some reason believe is true irrespective of evidence and facts.
There are also the facts that MMR vaccines have never contained thimerosal and that the autism rates were increasing prior to the MMR being developed.
But don't let facts get in the way of a story.

I can't believe the article you have posted. The "references" section basically doesn't have any working links. Also, based on a very quick background research on Dr. Wakefield, turns out he is a quack. Seriously, do some research before you make a post this size.

I don't doubt that to some extent MMR's do perhaps trigger ASD, in some - but certainly not all. ASD is found to be a genetic issue. Some have it, some don't. It's more like the gun is loaded (genetics), but what pulls the trigger?

More credible research in fact shows that ASD can in fact form when children are born c-section. Due to being born c-section the baby does not pass through the birth canal, wiping it's face right beside the mothers anus. the link here being that because this does not happen, it is assumed that the baby is in fact not picking up "good" bacteria via the mouth/nose (the beginning of our digestive tract). Because of this, the future presents itself with challenges for the newborn. If you don't have the proper flora fauna balance in your digestive tract, then you will NOT be able to filter out the bad and good that we take into our bodies (i.e. food or whatever else an infant puts in it's mouth).

By not having a proper filtration system working, you leave the brain exposed to neurotoxins (which is why I don't totally disregard the MMR thing - however it is not a cause - it is likely a symptom of the trigger - - - that lack of flora and fauna in the gut is basically like having no defenses in protecting the brain from harsh neurotoxins.

Obviously the triggers and causes are not strictly limited to this one theory. It is a complex answer that autism has, and rightly so. We are complex machines.

Please feel free to do your own search and post it here.

BULL ! 100's of millions of people received vaccines for decades. Why aren't there 100's of millions of people suffering now? This whole vaccine thing is just the latest fasionable conspiracy theory that 'so-called' experts are ranting about. I guess the reason that this info was'quietly' released is because of the evil MSM, right? They must be covereing up for their drug manufacturing over-lords, right? You know, sometimes, there's no coverage of a story that doesn't exist. If you have a child and don't want that child to recieve the standard vaccination shots upon birth, fine - that's up to you and your conscious. Don't be surprized if/when your child contracts diptheria, or tetanus, or some other easily preventable illness. You'll be able to take confort in that fact, that while your child is suffering needlessly, you had the foresight to ignore decades of medical findings all thanks to trendy wing-nut paranoia. Before I wrap up I just want to warn you guys about Fire Alarms. Secret reports have surfaced indicating that Fire Alarms are actually a plot by the government to distract you from living your perfect life. So please, whatever you do, IGNORE ALL FIRE ALARMS. Don't let THEM control you.

Everyone reacts in a different way to a vaccine, especially if they have Tylenol (Paracetamol) in their system. There is currently an epidemic of Autism, there are also epidemics of Asthma and Diabetes Type 1. All of these are linked to vaccines.

Which of these fines were rigged and controlled by the same corporations that lost billions when they were fined:


Pfizer
SEPT 2009

Pfizer was fined $2.3 billion, then the largest health care fraud settlement and the largest criminal fine ever imposed in the United States. Pfizer pled guilty to misbranding the painkiller Bextra with "the intent to defraud or mislead", promoting the drug to treat acute pain at dosages the FDA had previously deemed dangerously high. Bextra was pulled from the market in 2005 due to safety concerns. The government alleged that Pfizer also promoted three other drugs illegally: the antipsychotic Geodon, an antibiotic Zyvox, and the antiepileptic drug Lyrica.

See Pfizer in Dollars For Docs

Merck
NOV 2011

Merck agreed to pay a fine of $950 million related to the illegal promotion of the painkiller Vioxx, which was withdrawn from the market in 2004 after studies found the drug increased the risk of heart attacks. The company pled guilty to having promoted Vioxx as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis before it had been approved for that use. The settlement also resolved allegations that Merck made false or misleading statements about the drug's heart safety to increase sales.

See Merck in Dollars For Docs

GlaxoSmithKline
JULY 2012

GlaxoSmithKline agreed to pay a fine of $3 billion to resolve civil and criminal liabilities regarding its promotion of drugs, as well as its failure to report safety data. This is the largest health care fraud settlement in the United States to date. The company pled guilty to misbranding the drug Paxil for treating depression in patients under 18, even though the drug had never been approved for that age group. GlaxoSmithKline also pled guilty to failing to disclose safety information about the diabetes drug Avandia to the FDA.

Dollars For Docs

Sanofi-Aventis
DEC 2012

Sanofi-Aventis agreed to pay $109 million to resolve allegations that the company gave doctors free units of Hyalgan (an injection to relieve knee pain) to encourage those doctors to buy their product. Sanofi lowered the effective price by promising these free samples to doctors, but at the same time got inflated prices from government programs by submitting false price reports, alleged the United States. Medicare and other government health care programs "paid millions of dollars in kickback-tainted claims for Hyalgan," according to the DOJ announcement.

$1.42B$2.3B$520M$950M$1.5B$3B$95M$109M$762M
Eli Lilly
JAN 2009

Eli Lilly was fined $1.42 billion to resolve a government investigation into the off-label promotion of the antipsychotic Zyprexa. Zyprexa had been approved for the treatment of certain psychotic disorders, but Lilly admitted to promoting the drug in elderly populations to treat dementia. The government also alleged that Lilly targeted primary care physicians to promote Zyprexa for unapproved uses and “trained its sales force to disregard the law.”

See Eli Lilly in
Dollars For Docs

AstraZeneca
APRIL 2010

AstraZeneca was fined $520 million to resolve allegations that it illegally promoted the antipsychotic drug Seroquel. The drug was approved for treating schizophrenia and later for bipolar mania, but the government alleged that AstraZeneca promoted Seroquel for a variety of unapproved uses, such as aggression, sleeplessness, anxiety, and depression. AstraZeneca denied the charges but agreed to pay the fine to end the investigation.

See AstraZeneca in
Dollars For Docs

Abbott
MAY 2012

Abbott was fined $1.5 billion in connection to the illegal promotion of the antipsychotic drug Depakote. Abbott admitted to having trained a special sales force to target nursing homes, marketing the drug for the control of aggression and agitation in elderly dementia patients. Depakote had never been approved for that purpose, and Abbott lacked evidence that the drug was safe or effective for those uses. The company also admitted to marketing Depakote to treat schizophrenia, even though no study had found it effective for that purpose.

See Abbott in
Dollars For Docs

Boehringer Ingelheim
OCT 2012

Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc agreed to pay $95 million to resolve allegations that the company promoted several drugs for non- medically accepted uses. These drugs included the stroke-prevention drug Aggrenox, the lung disease drugs Atrovent and Combivent, and Micardis, a drug to treat high blood pressure. The FDA alleged that Boehringer improperly marketed the drugs and "caused false claims to be submitted to government health care programs."

Amgen
DEC 2012

Amgen agreed to pay a $762 million fine to resolve criminal and civil charges that the company illegally introduced and promoted several drugs including Aranesp, a drug to treat anemia. Amgen pleaded guilty to illegally selling Aranesp to be used at doses that the FDA had explicitly rejected, and for an off-label treatment that had never been FDA-approved.

One tip I would like to give you is to always look for conflicts of interest before deciding whether a study is likely to be honest. All of those who say MMR is 'safe' have huge conflicts of interest. If they said it wasn't safe they'd have their careers destroyed and funding removed by Big Pharma.

Rates of Autism started increasing at the same time as MMR was introduced.

The pharmaceuticals have essentially admitted that Thimerosal was causing problems by removing it from so many vaccines, unfortunately they've replaced it with Aluminium which is even worse.

So people are expected to believe that unethical and greedy pharma corporations suddenly turn nice for vaccines, that's the one time where they completely reverse their ethics and can be 100% trusted with our children? Hmmm, of course, when it's put like that only the naive will still believe. Next the shills cry half-truths such as "They don't make much money from vaccines!" Vaccines are the single most important driving force of the Pharmaceutical industry, not from the sales of vaccines, but from the treatment of the complications (harm) which vaccines leave behind.

So, why is it that studies show that vaccines are causing Diabetes Type 1, MS, Asthma, Motor Neuron Disease, Leukemia, Non Hodgkin Lymphoma, Epilepsy, Alzheimer's and Regressive Autism etc etc. All these problems which leave you on drugs for life, making you into a cash-cow for Big Pharma. The lie is too big, evil and disturbing for many, it's a lot easier to keep on believing the fairy tales about Small Pox (eradicated through quarantine) and Polio (renamed to make the vaccine appear a success), now they try to scare us about Measles which in the well-nourished and highly sanitized first world is not a problem (if you have enough Vitamin A you are not at risk of harm from Measles). Even people who know of the risk of vaccine damage like to reassure themselves "There's more risk of harm from disease than from vaccines", yet there's no study to prove that, in fact Pharma are desperately trying to avoid that study, they've always got an excuse, why do they want to avoid it? If the results would increase vaccine uptake then Pharma would agree, but they don't, because they know that vaccines are the driving force of the whole pharmaceutical industry; healthy children are left with lifelong autoimmune diseases and allergies, this means drugs for life, vaccines are there to poison you, they are a game of Russian Roulette. In the first world you do not need any vaccine; vaccines are a far greater risk than no vaccine.

Here's an award winning documentary on vaccines, it examines both sides of the debate, allowing experts from both sides to make their cases. If you haven't got time to watch it all make sure you watch for a few minutes from 17 Minutes 55 Seconds as the there is some rather concerning evidence there which everyone needs to be made aware of.



PS Wakefield's work has since been reproduced around the world. Brain Deer was a hit-man funded and sent in by the Pharmaceuticals to take Wakefield down one way or another. Look into Brain Deer, he is a snake, it's now turned out that Wakefield was right all along, he recommended more research into the MMR vaccine and a possible link with Autism. It's now come out that the MMR can cause children to regress into Autism if they take Tylenol (aka Paracetamol) at around the same time. This is because it prevents the liver from detoxifying the body post-vaccination. (University of California)

I thought the media was controlled too? In any case, exactly how many of the multi million and multi billion dollar cases did you hear about in the media that I posted.

Im dying to know!

Exactly how many, 1, 2, 3? Most aren't even disclosed (via media outlets)[aka corporate interest]. You really have no clue what you are talking about.

The mainstream media is desperate for us to think that this is only about Wakefield and only about Autism, but the reality is that there are thousands of doctors speaking out and not just about Autism, but about all the complications which vaccines cause. My own doctor recommends against MMR, I know of the top vaccine experts in the USA, he privately recommends avoiding MMR, and look at this below, we have the former chief of the UK Department of Health telling us exactly what's really going on. Dr Peter Fletcher has had access to documents which are not available to the public, he is a distinguished man with over 40 years experience, every parent should take his warnings on board.

Dr Peter Fletcher, former UK Chief Scientific Officer at the Department of Health said

"it is the steady accumulation of evidence, from a number of respected universities, teaching hospitals and laboratories around the world, that matters here. There's far too much to ignore. Yet government health authorities are, it seems, more than happy to do so."

...

"the refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history"

...

"There are very powerful people in positions of great authority in Britain and elsewhere who have staked their reputations and careers on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves."

....

"Clinical and scientific data is steadily accumulating that the live measles virus in MMR can cause brain, gut and immune system damage in a subset of vulnerable children,"
