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:
“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.
