E.U.’s Highest Court Rules Courts Can Consider Vaccines As Cause Of Illnesses Without Scientific Evidence

Associated Press: E.U. court: Vaccines can be blamed for illnesses without proof
“The highest court of the European Union ruled Wednesday that courts can consider whether a vaccination led to someone developing an illness even when there is no scientific proof. … On Wednesday, the E.U.’s top court said that despite the lack of scientific consensus on the issue, a vaccine could be considered defective if there was ‘specific and consistent evidence,’ including the time between a vaccine’s administration and the onset of a disease, an individual’s previous state of health, the lack of any family history of the disease, and a significant number of reported cases of the disease occurring following vaccination…” (Cheng, 6/22).
