BREAKING Mito News- 1 in 200 ....

"Revolutionary" News From Medicine: 1 in 200 People Carry Mitochondrial Disease Mutation

Here is my favorite clip from the article:

"This new study suggests that, "mitochondrial dysfunction is a major underlying risk factor for human disease," said Dr. Douglas C. Wallace, professor of molecular medicine and director of the Center for Molecular and Mitochondrial Medicine and Genetics at the University of California-Irvine.

He should know. Dr. Wallace is one of the world's leading mitochondria researchers, and a member of the UMDF's Scientific and Medical Advisory Board. He also has a 23-year-old son with autism.

In April, Dr. Wallace told the Vaccine Safety Working Group of HHS's National Vaccine Advisory Committee that over-vaccination of people with mitochondrial disorders was a deep concern, especially in light of Hannah Poling, who got nine vaccines in one well-baby visit.

"We have always advocated spreading the immunizations out as much as possible because every time you vaccinate, you are creating a challenge for the system," Dr. Wallace testified. "And if a child has an impaired system, that could in fact trigger further clinical problems."

I take that to mean that children with impaired mitochondria might also have impaired immune systems. And children with impaired immune systems might not be able to handle, say, nine vaccines given at once."

Huge News. Please read the full article. My thanks to the UMDF, Huffington Post, and everyone else who participated in this research.

2008- Why did huffington post it today?

Not to seem flip, but, GEEZZ! 1 in 50 kids have Autism and nobody thinks it is a big deal! 1 in 200?? What are we worried for? It is just better diagnosis.

Ok, done being flip. Hopefully this research will get some major press coverage. I may have the same mutations as my son, but I was not vaccinated as early or as much as he was. I was not exposed in utero to the same pervasive environmental toxins as he was.

I did not see that this was publisjhed in 2008. I have to thank the Poling family for being as vocal as they were. If it were not for them, we would have never found out about my son's mito dysfucntion, much like little Hannah. Knowing the underlying problem that led to his health issues has allowed us to treat much more effectively and for all practical purposes, recover him from autism.

To the Polings: THANK YOU! Thank you for sharing your story and the story of your precious daughter.

crazy that the original article date was 2008 and the Huffington reposted it yesterday-

You are right, if no one listened then, they aren't likely to care now, that is until their child becomes sick, and then it is a little late.
I cannot imagine what the Polings went through to prove this- they have our thanks as well!
