Government Secretly Settled 83 Vaccine-Autism Cases in the Last 20 Years


The Federal Government has always denied the link between autism and mercury-laced vaccines. Yet, it has secretly paid off over 83 families with autistic children in Federal Vaccine Courts, therefore admitting the correlation between autism and mercury-laced vaccines. Here’s a study on this issue.

For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism. A new investigation, based on verifiable government data, breaks ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate. The investigation found that a substantial number of children compensated for vaccine injury also have autism and that such cases have existed since 1989, the year after the VICP was formed.

SafeMinds’ Executive Director, Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN comments, “This study dramatically shifts the debate on autism and vaccines.  The question is no longer, Can vaccines cause autism? The answer is clear.  Now, we have to ask, How many cases of autism have vaccines caused and how do we prevent new injuries from occurring?” The government has asserted that it “does not track” autism among the vaccine-injured.  SafeMinds responds that not looking is the easiest way not to find something.  SafeMinds is calling for immediate federal research into the mechanisms of injury in these children in an effort to protect other children from harm and Congressional action to reform the VICP.

The peer-reviewed study looked at cases of vaccine injury that have been monetarily compensated by the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  It was published today in the Pace Environmental Law Review.  The study investigated approximately 1300 cases of childhood brain injury as a result of vaccines in which the Special Masters ruled for the plaintiffs, looking for references to autism, symptoms of autism or disorders commonly associated with autism. It reports that twenty-one cases actually stated “autism or autism-like symptoms” in the court records.  The researchers then identified and contacted 150 more compensated families to find out whether the children had autism.  They were able to find an additional 62 cases (greater than 40% of their sample) for a total of 83 cases of autism.  In 39 cases (47%) there was confirmation of autism beyond parental report.

The federal government has called autism a “national health emergency,” conservatively affecting 1 in 110 children and costing the country billions of dollars each year. If a portion of autism cases are vaccine-induced and there is evidence that officials have been “looking the other way,” this cannot be tolerated.  The VICP’s recent attempt to dismiss the over 5000 cases in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings is suspect in light of these new findings based on its own records.

My brother was diagnosed with autism and I do believe that vaccines are the main culprit. I also think all the chemicals in food contribute to autism as well as toxins in the air and water.

This is so terrifying. I fear for the health of my nephew…he just turned 1. I don't know if his mother is aware of any of this…

This is all part of agenda 21. To depopulate the earth.

This upsets me dearly. This is why i feel at times i shouldnt bring a child into this world well the world that it is today and i would love to be a mother but i have my doughts. Although i can choose for now if i do become pregnant not to have my child vaccinated but then there's food and what they put in food now a days. Its all so horrible this world but i hold faith with my Lord Jesus Christ….

@4hisglory…it is horrible and upsets me too, but dont let it discourage you, if you do decide to have kids there are ways around it: Obtain a religious exemption form against vaccinations. Never get vaccinated while pregnant, the toxins can affect a fetus in-utero. Never get your child vaccinated. The best nutrition is breast milk, however if for any reason you are unable to breast feed, use goat milk (doesnt contain msg and other dangerous additives) and supplement with a multi-vitamin for infants. Buy organic fruits and vegetables, cook and mush them up yourself for when your baby is ready for solids. Buy a juicer to juice fruit for natural juice without additives for your baby, and plenty of fresh water (7.5 ph or higher, you can get ph strips to test the alkalinity of your water) some water on the market is acidic and equivalent to drinking juice or… Read more »
@skepticbynature The "correlation does not prove causation" argument is total bullshit. Here is why: 1) Correlation is significant. If you can significantly reduce the risk of giving your child autism by not having them vaccinated, then that proves that the correlation between vaccines and autism is significant. Right now it is being completely ignored by the medical and scientific community. Why? Because vaccines make a lot of money. 2) When looking for causes, scientists use correlations as clues. A controlled experiment is used to single out correlated factors. However, since we can't just experiment with human children we cannot do proper experiments to find out more. If we had an infinitely complex computer simulation we could take 1000 simulation babies and inject half of them with vaccines and give the other half no vaccines and see which ones have autism. Right now, correlation is all we can go on and… Read more »

@Seudonak….perfectly said couldn't have said it better. I hope "Skeptic" comes back to see your comment.

You're correct in noting that correlation can be a useful clue. If unvaccinated kids were less likely to have autism than vaccinated kids, that would in fact be a strong hint that vaccines cause autism. (It could also be that autism precursors cause both autism and vaccination). Large-scale studies have been repeatedly done to look for any link between vaccines and autism, thanks to the efforts of worried parents. Large-scale studies have repeatedly shown that autism rates are not actually higher in vaccinated children, conclusively disproving the argument that vaccination causes autism. You're also correct to note that the probability of financial gain by convincing people of your theories creates potential for conflict of interest and may lead companies or individuals to lie to the general public so that they will get more money. Now, what is the article above about? It's about people getting large sums of money by… Read more »

Vaccination is a huge scam.

BTW mercury is not the only culprit. It's one of them. Andrew Wakefield pointed out how the measles component of the MMR vaccine can cause autism, has to do with the gut/brain connection.

Still, I have to question anyone who thinks it's a good idea to inject formaldehyde, animal DNA, and who knows what else into people.

I believe my own child was affected.

I just wanted to say that I have a four year adopted child; who was diagnosed with autism a year and a half ago. Immediately I started to do research, and found this: . So; that means that the drug companies who make the vaccines are getting off on the majority of these cases, because there is a 'link' only to the vaccine, but it depends on the existence also of the candida virus, toxins within the air & food; as well as the origination of 'leaky-gut syndrome'. Although; it can clearly be seen that the vaccine accelerates the growth of all autistic symptoms almost instantly. They can still say that it is not an 'exclusive' contributor towards the autism disorder. Therefore; they think that they are 'off the hook'. For now. However; I forsee them being exposed; shortly within the near future. Autism and mercury poisoning have almost… Read more »
Your little guy is very to have you as a mom, advocating on his/her behalf!!! And you are absolutey correct – Autism is the modern day 'mad hatters'. The drug companies are completely unliable thanks to Bill Frist and the Homeland Security Bill. It was a rider slipped in during dark of night/behind closed doors and with money changing hands. Typical WA DC – District of Criminals mode of operation: According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines — thimerosal — appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. … Vaccine manufacturers had already begun to phase thimerosal out of injections given to American infants — but they continued to sell off their mercury-based supplies of vaccines until last… Read more »

What a sad, sick world we live in today. My boy, diagnosed with functioning autism. Clearly rite after his check ups and vaccinations he became ill. He had the really bad fever and everything. I understand how the vaccinations help, to a degree, but, why hide the truth? Who really doesnt care about children? And why are those kind of people running the world? Im sorry to whoever else is suffering from this…

@wearone1 So sorry to hear that your son is suffering from austism, to answer your quesiton: the people running the world are the freemasons normally referred to as "the elite". This a secret satanic order that has come up throughout history with an agenda towards world domination. Today there are and estimated five million Masons in the U.S. They sit on the boards of ALL major corporation, multinationals, banking institutions and commercial enterprises. They control Washington and have done so from the start. At the higher leverls Masonry is Luciferian/Satanic, they regard Lucifer as the true god and the Lord God of the bible as a cunning imposter. Their goal is to create a New World Order which will be totalitarian, and there will be one world religion which will be Luciferian, all other religions will be abolished and outlawed. freemasonry has never been stronger, more wealthy or more influential… Read more »

weareone – have you checked out generation rescue??? They have a lot of resources for helping detox these little guys, which sometimes results in a reversal of symptoms. God bless and good luck!!!!

They're just attacking our little innocent ones from every direction: abortion, vaccines, msg in formula/baby food we really need to be in prayer for our little ones and get these parents informed. This screams depopulation agenda and their primary focus on the unborn, infants, and children. People we have to stand up and, SPEAK OUT, and try to save precious lives.

it pains me so much when i see my daughter who is now four months go get these shots. I pray everytime igo in there, she has never got sick and its almost as though she has a shield around her. I thank God for this

All I can say is the govt has done an OUTSTANDING job of brainwashing people into accepting and promoting their poisons or shall i say so called "immunizations". SMH!!! Wow people all this is what us conspiracy researches were so much against being decieved and brainwashed by the elite!!! Time to WAKE UP people.

My father in law lived to be 100 and never, ever had a polio vaccine. He had a limp – still had a good mind and simply died of old age. I, personally, would never take a flu vaccine after all I've read about it, or any other type of vaccine. Every one has to do what their heart and gut tell them.

@truth soldier: Is anyone who doesn't ape your beliefs to the letter supposed to be slaving away for Big Pharma? I just raised a question, since theoretically Vaccines are supposed to be weakened versions of the disease or portions that allow the body to identify key parts for preparations against the real thing. Yes, I've read about the cases where a weakened Polio vaccine turned deadly when the Polio virus mutated back into virulence. @Sarah Connor: While you'd be heartened by the information on this page, here it is: As for your idea that vaccines weaken people's health, one would assume that we'd see rapid, extended increases in illness after vaccinations started, yet the rates in most cases (Smallpox being the exception here, but even THAT doesn't break the trend over the long term) the rates either continued dropping or continued trending downward. If you want to raise the… Read more »
measles is one of the things where the emunity from the mother is passed down to a baby via breast feeding. since for a long time this was discouraged or at best not encouraged you see where the breakdown was. yeah we have these rediculas things that pop up on tv every now and again saying breast is best etc, but breakdowns have happened now and people don't live a lifestyle where it is easy for them to breastfeed etc etc. my family and i have allways maintained that eggs were good, after years of discouragement i saw on breakfast tv this morning us being told to consume more eggs. it was said that the salmonella put peple off eating eggs. in my oppinion this is down to mass unhygenic farming. i was fortunate to spend time outdors when i was yung often in the company of people who kept… Read more »
Hey Godozo – I checked out your links. The Health Sentinel site has some pretty good info on there but when they were arguing the case for fluoride, they lost me. And for every graph you can show me that vaccinations caused a decrease in disease, I can show you one that shows the decline was already occuring thanks to improvements in proper nutrition, sanitation, refrigeration and healthier living conditions in general as people moved out of the crowded inner cities while all the before mentioned issues were not yet at acceptable standards. No matter what side of the fence you sit on, there will be information to back your argument. This goes both ways I realize. I guess it all just comes down to who you believe, or more importantly, trust. Skeptic's only reference above was the fda. A government entity I believe to be just as corrupt as… Read more »

@Sarah Connor thanks for explaining that to Godozo, its like pulling teeth trying to get obstinate people to realize the truth about things. But like you said sometimes you just have to agree to disagree and let people "Godozo" drown in their own ignorance. Like i said before i really believe he's just a disinformation agent, who doesnt really know or understand the truth about vaccines. No need in wasting any more typing space on such obstinate people "Godozo". All the others with an open mind, common sense, and the will power to atleast research to find the truth thanks because you speaking out on the issue is saving innocent little lives.

Godozo – just in case you come back, here is a pretty decent article on vaccines and the immune system:
Vaccines destroys the body’s natural immunization response to attacks by viruses and micro organisms by interfering with the body’s production and release of interferons. Interferons are proteins made and released by lymphocytes in response to the presence of pathogens as viruses, bacteria, parasites or tumor cells. They allow communication between cells to trigger the protective defenses of the immune system that eradicate pathogens or tumors.

My little brother is autistic and me and my mom think its from the vaccines. No one else im my family has it. Its just weird how it popped up on him.

@Lily so sorry to here that, there are some things you can do that might help a bit and reverse, or decrease the effects of autism. I suggest reading SLOW POISONING OF AMERICA by John Erb.

@ Blessed, thanks to God and all the other mothers and fathers who DID get your classmates vaccinated so you were never exposed to the mumps or smallpox or measles viruses.

So, if the Illminati are all about pop. control and spreading disease, and they've been in power for a very long time, why have our lifespans steadily increased for so long? Clearly some of this "witchcraft" known as modern medicine must be doing something right!

Oh, by all means, let's have a revival of polio and smallpox, that sounds delightful! Oh never mind, I forgot, y'all are gonna get caught up in the rapture next week, it won't be your problem anyway.

You idiot, we don't vaccinate for smallpox, and haven't for many years.

And guess what – all those old people you're talking about never had half of the vaccines that our children are bombarded with these days. And most of them probably HAD measles, mumps, and pertussis as kids.

God is very real, realer than you can fathom.

So glad that my mom was well informed on the vaccine issue, and never got me vaccinated…..I am 25 years old, never been hospitalized, never had any disease nor virus. Thanks to God and my mother being informed I have been blessed with good health.

-God bless

Don't waste time debating with ignorant people, If they want to let the government use them like lab rats for their "vaccines" let them go ahead, they're only hurting themselves. Only fools reject knowledge and wisdom.

I dont get it how can people believe they are helping their immunity by depressing the immune system with toxins. How is the immune system supposed to protect you from ANYTHING in such a weakened state.

I've been a long time reader of this site, never a poster because of the ignorance that permeates the comments section on a daily basis. I find it funny that when a person tries to give his or her opinion on a topic written on the site (especially when that opinion goes against the herd of sheep who post on here) they are attacked and treated as criminals. Meanwhile posts that site the BIBLE (a book that has yet to be proven as anything more than lore) as a usable reference are treated as fact. skepticbynature was simply stating an opinion, and then is berated by people who cite internet sites as fact. Those who read this site should know that asking questions is what "it" is all about, and attacking those whose opinions vary from yours is exactly what is wrong with modern day society. Please, use your "scripture"… Read more »

It's silly those who deny the Bible probably have never read it. Never mind it's the most historically accurate book of all time. Nope, it HAS to be fake.

And it's even sillier how people can call it "the most" historically accurate book without having properly read and studied all the other world scriptures before making comparisons.

You can tell God why you didn't believe in him when your time is up buddy.

Just a couple facts about the Bibile for your information:

1) The Bible was written by more than 40 different authors over 1500 years and none of their stories contradict.

2) The Bible is the only religious text that contains over 1800 prophecies. None of those have been proven false. Some are still in the future but to consider that over half has come true isdefinitely something to think about.

3) Over 23,000 acheological digs have been performed to attempt to prove the Bible false and yet, NONE of them has been able to do this.

4)Due to research, the Bible has been discovered to be a reliable collection of historical documents written by eye witnesses among other eye witness of the supernatural events.

Um. I am completely pro-religion and believe in God but I think you need to read the gospels yourself clearly before stating there are no contradictions. Studying the scriptures of all the other great religions of the world would be a bonus. And history, too. Especially of the Catholic Church. From a variety of different sources.

Dr. Cynara Coomer…FAIL!!

Ooh the irony!!!

What's sad is that it wouldn't matter that these poor parents are coming out and revealing thier stories because no one's going to listen anyway. It's "ignorant" to believe that these two may be linked together, I get dirty looks and rude responses when speaking about this issue…I've learned to keep my mouth shut around certain groups of people because I know I'll be attacked on how I don't know what I'm talking about. I'll never lose faith, I just pray for the strength to not hate on this people but to ask for god to heal them…it's not easy.

Let me give you a story about lawsuits and payoffs. In Flint, it was known that you could retire, then turn around and sue G(enerous) M(otors) and the company would settle for a decent amount of dollars. You'd lose some retirement benefits, but you'd get a decent nest-egg…or enough for a hellava retirement party. Thousands availed themselves to this, and you didn't even have to retire – I knew someone who was fired at his job who sued and got a settlement. I also know that my Grandfather considered it after retiring…before rejecting it, saying "GM was good to me, suing wouldn't be right." Turned out that in recent history a lot of companies settle such lawsuits, preferring a quick settlement to a long lawsuit and a possible megaruling against it. A lot of the "the company admits no wrongdoing" involves such settlements. So…eighty-three settlements over twenty years doesn't sound like… Read more »

I cannot believe that I have been a first hand witness to the age old mantra "figures never lie, but liars always figure." I have never seen a more blatant misuse of statistics in my life.

thank god i am not affected by the vaccines. Next time a new disease outbreak happens in another country (like swine flu) I am not getting the vaccine
