Italian Court Reignites MMR Vaccine Debate After Award Over Child with Autism

Italian Court Reignites MMR Vaccine Debate After Award Over Child with Autism

Story at-a-glance -

  • The Italian Health Ministry recently conceded that the MMR vaccine caused autism in a now nine-year-old boy. The Bocca family has subsequently been awarded a 15-year annuity totaling 174,000 Euros (just under $220,000), plus reimbursement for court costs. The judge ruled the boy “has been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR”
  • A documented serious side effect of vaccination, including smallpox, rabies, pertussis and MMR vaccine, is encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), which can lead to permanent brain damage and also result in regressive behavior
  • Dozens of studies have confirmed the hotly contested findings of Dr. Wakefield, whose 1998 study suggested a link between the MMR vaccine, chronic bowel inflammation, and symptoms of regressive autism. This is in contrast to the many vaccine industry-sponsored studies that refuted this association, which were widely picked up by the media
  • The work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride explains how chronic bowel inflammation resulting from abnormal gut flora can lead to symptoms of autism, as well as many other neurological- and behavioral problems. Children with abnormal gut flora are at increased risk for vaccine damage, and parents should seriously consider postponing vaccinations until gut flora has been normalized to minimize health risks
  • A simple and inexpensive strategy to help minimize vaccine damage is to analyze the stool of the child to determine the state of her gut flora, followed by a urine test to check for metabolites, which can give you a picture of the state of your child's immune system. These tests are available in most laboratories around the world at a cost of about $80-100 per test

Many parents don't think twice about taking their children in for routine vaccinations, as they are an integral and heavily promoted part of the conventional medical system. But this decision has had life altering, and sometimes life-ending, ramifications for more children than you might expect.

Many hard core health activists are distressed that I do not promote the avoidance of all vaccines outright. Instead, I strongly urge you to invest the time to educate yourself about the potential benefits and risks of each vaccine prior to vaccination, and to make educated decisions based on what you conclude is likely to be the best course of action for your child.
