The vaccine injury court was established within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. This is where parents go for compensation when their child is injured by a vaccine. You actually sue the federal government and fight against a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer. Due process does not exist in this court. There is no jury. It is not a court of law. It is an administrative proceeding (like an IRS audit). There is only a court-appointed "special master" who is a government attorney that hears your grievance and decides if you have grounds to be compensated. Since 1989, these special masters have awarded nearly $4 billion to vaccine injured children and adults. 1200 claims have been for death and 18,000 for injury. The DTP vaccine is the most common vaccine filed against followed by MMR. Only 34% of claims are granted some type of compensation. In 2017, $282 million was awarded.
Eight of the 27 studies on the Autism Science Foundation (ASF) website and cited by spokespeople as "proof" that vaccines don't cause autism are led by or coauthored by an embezzler who is a "Most Wanted" fugitive or a CDC whistle-blower who testified his colleagues at the CDC committed fraud. Paul Thorsen is a researcher from Denmark who coauthored four of these eight studies. He stole $1 million in grant money from the CDC. In 2011, he was indicted "on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering." He bought a house, cars, and a motorcycle with the funds he was to use to study vaccines and autism but his work is still published.
If you look to supplement with magnesium, it is nearly impossible to decipher all the combinations and sources. Names like magnesium oxide, carbonate, citrate, malate, chloride, glycinate, sulfate, taurate, gluconate, phosphate, glutamate, l-threonate, etc., are a few of the types of magnesium you will face at the store.
We have received several questions on magnesium. People want to know how to tell if you are low. I will discuss problems related to magnesium testing this week and offer guidance on supplementation next week via a blog article and podcast.
Laboratory test results are compared with the average values of the general population. We are increasingly sick as a population, so those unhealthy population numbers skew what is considered a "good lab result." They are not indicative of values for optimal health. In addition, errors can occur in processing lab results. Since it is easy to experiment with magnesium levels, it is safe to give it a try. Generally people are lacking magnesium in their bodies, so by adding it, benefits can be seen right away. When the body has enough magnesium, any excess will get eliminated via a laxative effect (loose stools or diarrhea).
Dr. Paul Offit (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) and Dr. Peter Hotez (Baylor University) are two of the loudest proponents of vaccinations. And by coincidence, they both just happen to be patent holders for vaccines that built their careers in the pharmaceutical industry. They love to talk about the 27 studies that prove vaccines don't cause autism. The trouble is that, when you actually read those studies, it turns out that only one vaccine and one ingredient was ever studied. The studies are cited on the Autism Science Foundation (ASF), a reputable sounding, science-oriented organization where Dr. Offitt just happens to sit on the board.
