As has been widely reported, mercury is the second most toxic element on earth, behind plutonium. Toxicity of mercury has been linked to many different diseases, including autism, learning disabilities, and bi-polar disorder. Thimerosal, a preservative placed in many children’s vaccines, is approximately 50% mercury. There have been years of litigation on behalf of children who suffer from various disorders, including autism, allegedly as a result of thimerosal contained in childhood vaccines. Most of these cases have been stalled as the government contends that these cases can only be argued in front of a federal government board and not in a court of law because of the Federal Vaccine Act.
Recently, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Board ruled in favor of a nine-year-old Georgia girl who developed neurological problems shortly after receiving childhood shots. The amount of the payment to be made is yet to be determined. Although other federal officials have claimed that the girl’s autism-like symptoms were not caused by the vaccinations, these officials on the compensation program found that the shots exacerbated the girl’s underlying medical condition, an extremely rare disorder of the mitrochondria. The National Autism Association called this a landmark case for all children suffering from mercury-based autism. Over the past several years thimerosal has been removed from almost all childhood vaccinations. It is uncertain if the thousands of other children will be awarded any payments from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund. Hopefully they will be included for payments from the fund.
