Update to this huge developing story!
(Re reading this article is kind of blowing my mind, I think that this is as big a story as the revelations in Kirby's Book 4 years ago. Send this to everyone you know and get some reporters writing about it).
Last fall David Kirby reported that one of the three vaccine/autism test cases chosen for the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund had been conceded by the government before even going to a hearing. The case was sealed, apparently to protect the child's identity, but now we are learning the details of the case.
Apparently the girl, now known in the autism community as "Eve", had a mitochondrial disorder. Which begs a whole lotta questions when taken with the study he references that found that in a group of people with autism more than a third had a mitochondrial disorder. And that these disorders were milder in people with autism, which makes me wanna know if my son has an undiagnosed mild mitochondrial disorder.
I knew that it was associated with autism, but thought it was rare. I remember reading the symptoms way back in the day and dismissing it from consideration from Chandler's medical picture. I am gonna check it again.
Kirby has a lot more good questions that come from this case.
