Vaccines in the U.S. and Italy

In Italy, a child was given a GlaxoSmithKline Infanrix Hexa vaccine, and within a year developed autism. The court eventually ruled that the autism was indeed caused by the vaccine, which contained aluminum and a mercury containing preservative. For anyone who has never heard of this vaccine, it is used to prevent six diseases: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitus B, polio, and Haemophilus influenzae type b.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program of Italy did eventually provide financial support for the family, but they had to first sue the Ministry of Health, since they turned down the claim at first.

In the U.S., there is a compensation program, but if you send in your claim and it is rejected, you cannot sue. It is over, no compensation.

In addition, the Italian media covered this story, while the U.S. said nothing. So while the Italians are giving compensation and agreeing that the child’s autism was caused by a vaccine, the U.S. is silent. But it’s actually more than silent; there was a petition started to define refusal to vaccinate children as a mental disorder. It had 2,000 signatures after one day. Another ridiculous motion is to classify wanting to eat healthy foods, like organic, non-GMO foods, as a mental disorder.

Think about it. A lot of countries ban GMO foods; they won’t take GMO foods from the U.S. And then there is our government, practically forcing them upon us. Other countries acknowledge the damage done to children by certain vaccines and vaccination schedules. Not so here.

It’s all really quite depressing to us. I think I’ll go look at our vegetable seedlings and think about the food we’ll get from them. Healthy thoughts…. mental disorder?
