Something to ponder..

Since all the brouhaha around that recent vaccine court concession started (yup, the one where vaccines appeared to have aggravated an underlying mitochondrial disorder), I've had quite a few questions from friends regarding the boys' metabolic disorder (of which mitochondrial disorder is a sub-piece) and whether or not I attribute the manifestation of this disorder to vaccines.

I really have to think hard about this.. as I can truly argue either way...

But in the mean time I wanted to leave you with two very interesting tables from a publication titled "Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disorders - A Primary Care Physician's Guide; Reprinted from a special supplement to Exceptional Parent Magazine" . I hope the tables transmit OK (the tables can also be found in this chapter.. look at pages 3 and 5; the whole chapter is a fascinating read, and I am sure many parents of kids with "autism" will recognize a lot of the symptoms...).
