Watching CNN...press conference regarding first ever award to the family of a little girl in Georgia diagnosed with autism, set off by vaccines with thimerosal which activated mitochondrial disorder, a maternally inherited disease.

Mitochondrial Disorder has been linked to Multiple Sclerosis
Mitochondrial disorder manifests in the following way-
"The process of converting food and oxygen (fuel) into energy requires hundreds of chemical reactions, and each chemical reaction must run almost perfectly in order to have a continuous supply of energy. When one or more components of these chemical reactions does not run perfectly, there is an energy crisis, and the cells cannot function normally. As a result, the incompletely burned food might accumulate as poison inside the body.
This poison can stop other chemical reactions that are important for the cells to survive, making the energy crisis even worse. In addition, these poisons can act as free radicals (reactive substances that readily form harmful compounds with other molecules) that can damage the mitochondria over time, causing damage that cannot be reversed. Unlike nuclear DNA, mitochondrial DNA has very limited repair abilities and almost no protective capacity to shield the mitochondria from free radical damage."

Perhaps in some MSers, thimerosal is what sets off the chemical reaction....
