"Do Cigarettes Only Aggravate Pre-existing Genetic Factors, Causing Lung Damage Including Features Of Cancer?"
-"Randy" commenting on the verbal spin of the government.
People settle court cases and voluntary pay damages when the know they can't win a case.
The government conceded the Poling case, knowing full well it was chosen to be a test case and would be applied to thousands of other cases.
But they, and their apologists who are out in full force in the media today, are still trying to emphasize that vaccines don't really cause autism, just 'aggravate a very rare underlying disorder that results in autism like symptoms in this one isolated incident'.
These linguistical gymnastics are plain silly and are merely attempting to wiggle out of a full admission of the theory that vaccines cause autism in two ways:
First, by putting the emphasis on the mitochondrical disorder as the real culprit of her autism, rather than the vaccine.
Hanna was a healthy, typical child with no hint of any 'underlying, undiagnosed, genetic, mitochondrical or any other kind of disorder'. What ever was 'underlying' was undetectable. She got her shots and regressed into autism. Later she was found to have a mito disorder that the government conceded made her vulnerable to her vaccine injury...
As David Kirby has noted, if a child dies from a peanut allergy, we blame the peanut, not the predisposition for anaphylaxis, because if the child never had the peanut, they would be just fine.
As Randy infers, when someone dies of lung cancer, we blame the smoke, not the genetic predisposition for vulnerability to lung cancer.
But apparently we want to blame Hannah for her autism because she just wasn't being a good receptacle for the super, super safe vaccines?
Keep in mind, they paid her from the VACCINE INJURY Compensation Fund, which means her autism is a vaccine injury.
She was not paid from the Underlying Mitochondrial Disorder Vulnerability Compensation Fund.
Second, "autism like symptoms"? "Features of Autism"? Seriously?
There is a name for 'autism like symptoms'. It is called 'Autism'. Autism is solely diagnosed by its symptoms, so if you have the symptoms, you have autism.
The government is trying to make is sound like Hannah didn't have autism. Hannah has full blown autism.
If someone was brought into an ER, bleeding from a small hole in his belly, with a small chunk of metal inside of it, and his friends were yelling, "He got shot! He got shot!", and the attending physician turned to a nurse and said, "This man has gun shot like symptoms", you would think that doctor was a moron.

Who believes that the ice cream she has eaten only aggravates her pre-exiting genetic factors causing changes in her thorax including features of obesity.
But don't you dare tell her that she ate too much ice cream and it made her fat.
UPDATE: David Kirby has more details on the spin and who is putting out the 'autism like symptoms' talking points on the Huffington Post.
