Jan 31, 2012 Full story: Bangor Daily News 11

" Men in Black" was flickering on the screen, and Laura Cossolotto and her husband were enjoying a rare night at the movies in their home town of Centerville, Iowa, when her brother-in-law rushed into the darkened theater.

These kids, dravet, have seizures at below 12 months of age.
Those whose kids regress after vaccines, lose already acquired speech with autism symptoms at18-24 months of age.
This article has only one goal: to downplay parents reporting of autism after vaccination. To dissipate public fear of vaccines by selecting stories that suit their objectives: mass vaccination without assessing safety of vaccines. Just this article goes to show how low they can go to break the link between vaccines and autism(well at least the regressive autism, which is most often the most severe cases)
Also during diagnosis of these children they never offer any genetic testing for dravet. They are aware of that, but they know that does not count for nothing.
May be deer should investigate the author(idiot) and their publisher. Probably ran by Murdochs

Actually, during a diagnosis of autism, any good doctor will go genetic and chromosome testing of common things prior, obviously you have no knowledge of how those types of tests work. One test doesn't do it. Doctors don't always know what test to order, since there are so many different genetics. Because many don't test prior, many kids are misdiagnosed.

Has nothing to do with down playing reporting of anything. Do you think an autism diagnosis comes with a parental suspicions of cause attached? How funny you think it would. Get real.
This article is based on a parental experience. Many people have linked cause to a number of vaccines besides the MMR, as this parent did. It has nothing to do with regression or a different age group during vaccine (But this child did regress, just not at the age of a vaccine). It has to do with the vaccine mentioned at the age of that child of this parent.

The only one trying to create vaccine fear is you, by the ever so scary "mass vaccination without assessing safety of vaccines". This article only mentioned one vaccine at a certain age. No mass.
Nice try.

Vaccine are known to cause major seizures in children. To handpick cases to persuade public for vaccine safety is quite wrong and useless. Otherwise there would never exist vaccines damage compensation program. However, you would also deny that as well.

Get your shots, I will tell others for their side-effects.

You don't need to be Sherlocke Holmes to make a connection. Correlation is the perfect place to start an investigation, but the powers that produce vaccines and the lies about them ARE NOT going to cut their own throats (unfortunately) and they simply play mind games with parents like this one and the general public and stall as they try in vain to perfect vaccines.

Didn't read the article, did either of you? Great attempt at vaccine scare.

The USA Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has nothing to do with this article, this family wouldn't be able to get a dime. Many, including myself have acknowledged vaccine risk (hello)but that's not what this is about, either and VICP is only USA. Let's hear about Canada's compensation.

Let me help you out.
"Without a diagnosis, Cossolotto said, she would probably still believe — erroneously — that the DPT shot caused Michaela’s illness.“I understand this is a genetic condition,” she said.“Having an answer does make a difference.”

No mind games about genetic. Had she just been closed minded and figured vaccine injury and not look into other causes and found the genetic epilepsy, her child would not had found a treatment plan that worked. A lesson Winnipeg should be interested in, since his child has seizures. It's called genetic and chromosome testing. Ask your doctor about it.

You're both poor sports at accepting parental accounts that go against what your want to hear.

Thanks for the DUH moment. She was right, but convinced otherwise because she was intimidated by doctors who pretend they know all. This story is bogus. I read it.
