She reveals the feelings of depression and helplessness brought on by the diagnosis and her initial inability to find help. Unwilling to give up, however, Obradovic began fighting, finding a treatment for her daughter and going on to campaign on behalf of others. An Unfortunate Coincidence is the result of this fight. The account takes its readers through the political, historical, and scientific developments behind the greatest medical controversy of our time, including: The findings of the vaccine injury compensation program Investigations of CDC fraud and the subsequent congressional hearings and findings The identical symptoms of autism and mercury poisoning Eyewitness reports of families and educators The author's struggle to present her point of view and the backlash intended to silence it Ultimately, An Unfortunate Coincidence will ask the readers to take a closer look at the evidence uncovered by ten years of research and decide just how many coincidence claims they are willing to accept.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
