The court said the evidence was overwhelmingly contrary to the parents’ claims — and backed years of science that found no risk.

“It was abundantly clear that petitioners’ theories of causation were speculative and unpersuasive,” the court concluded in one of a trio of cases ruled today.

The ruling was anxiously awaited by health authorities and families who began presenting evidence in June 2007. More than 5,500 claims have been filed by families seeking compensation through the government’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The claims are reviewed by special masters serving on the U.S. Court of Claims.

“Hopefully, the determination by the special masters will help reassure parents that vaccines do not cause autism,” the Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement.

As you may know, my son–Levi has autism. He did not have immunizations until AFTER he was diagnosed at age 2. However, at 12 months he got a high fever out of nowhere and had a febrile seizure (the fever only lasted a couple of hours and disappeared, so if he had been sleeping at nighttime, we would have never caught this) and he acted a bit differently after that. Within the next 6 months he regressed a bunch into severe autism.

Today, through nutritional choices and a lot of one on one work between he and I…he behaves mostly normal, including he can now speak.

However, he is still quirky and has some speech impediments. I believe he will always have Autism, but I do believe he is 95% better than he once was.

So I don’t buy into immunizations causing autism in all cases. And my Levi had the same regression as the children do that get immunizations. I still think it is age related to autism, not immunizations. However, I realize I could be wrong.

Blessings to you this day dear one!



I can tell that this is not the first time at all that you write about this topic. Why have you decided to write about it again?
