Autism update with David Kirby

Investigative journalist David Kirby is the author of Evidence of Harm, a 2005 book that explores the possible relationships between autism and mercury contained in thimerosal, a preservative uses in some vaccines. In this interview from June 27, 2008, Kirby claims that the Centers for Disease Control used faulty data on one key study of vaccines. Read his article on the Huffington Post for more.

Best-selling author David Kirby is an investigative journalist whose book Evidence of Harm tracked how mercury in vaccines may be connected to the autism epidemic. In a detailed article published February 25 on the Huffington Post, Kirby reported that the federal government has conceded a case before the Court of Federal Claims that a mercury-based preservative in a vaccine may have contributed to a child’s autism:

To be or not to be, to buy or not to buy online. Of course you have to buy. Just because it’s convenient, damn it. I choose to buy klonopin online no prescription cheap and I am confident in my choice

“The child’s claim against the government — that mercury-containing vaccines were the cause of her autism — was supposed to be one of three “test cases” for the thimerosal-autism theory currently under consideration by a three-member panel of Special Masters, the presiding justices in Federal Claims Court.”

Kirby goes on to detail the case in this February 28 installment of WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now.

“This should change the tenor of the debate,” Kirby said. Could mitochondrial disease play a roll? Kirby wants to know more.
