Wow, there COULD be a can of worms opened...we'll see.
This really struck me from the op link:
Among the prime cellular targets of mercury are mitochondria, and thimerosal-induced cell death has been associated with the depolarization of mitochondrial membrane, according to the International Journal of Molecular Medicine among several others. (Coincidently, the first case of Mt disease was diagnosed in 1959, just 15 years after the first autism case was named, and two decades after thimerosal's introduction as a vaccine preservative.)
Does any one know how the mechanism of MT disease affects the brain to cause autism symptoms? I would think it would be more the energy/muscle symptoms manifesting.
anything that affects metabolism of nutrients could affect neuro functioning...neuro functions require a host of synchronized cellular reactions...if the different types of energy required by each cell is not present, or delayed....it can throw off the ability to commincate and process - either by delaying or making it impossible.
I think Mr. Kirby's biggest point is that there are simply too many ASD people with this very rare deficiency for it to be occuring naturally. I think he's implying that the vaccines are causing this metabolic disorder in some cases and I agree.
Carrie – can you explain what they mean by test case and why it isn’t good? I am so far from a lawyer lol. I have no idea about court cases and such but why can’t this be considered a good thing? Didn’t the family get paid for a vaccine causing autism?
I’m just a little confused as to why this case has to be dismissed so quickly when the family won.
