Title: "Vaccines Did Not Save Us." It's well worth studying.
Halfway through the piece, we're linked to a May 5, 2008, email, from Tina Cheatham at the US Health Resources Services Administration, to CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson.
The email concerns the conditions under which the federal government will pay out compensation to parents whose children have been damaged by vaccines.
Here is the key quote. Follow the circuitous language:
"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."
