As a parent you want your children to be healthy and infection free always. Getting your child vaccinated is a major step towards that. Vaccinations prevent infections and illnesses to a large extent. I know how I have never missed a date, setting reminders, alerting myself to be up to date with my kids’ vaccinations schedules. But, ever since I read this study I am really confused.
An exhaustive study that stated the adverse effects of vaccination was published in the Frontiers in Public Health recently. But only after six hours, the study, Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports, by Anthony R. Mawson, et al, mysteriously disappeared from the Internet. Maybe the parties who wiped the slate clean, hoped that people would forget the controversial information the report consisted.
Subsequently, another researcher James Grundvig peer reviewed Mawson’s study (1) and published an article about the vaccination and its effects. He brought up the facts which validated the original study. However, the publishing journal had censored a part of this information.
Mawson and his team conducted a survey involving mothers of children who were educated at home. The homeschooling organizations from Florida, Lousiana, Mississippi were asked to send out an email to mothers to fill an online survey anonymously. The survey included 415 mothers (with six to 12-year-old vaccinated and unvaccinated children.) Out of the 666 children, 261 kids were not vaccinated.
The study results showed that children who were vaccinated had fewer chances of having chicken pox or pertussis, but had more chances of developing other infections, allergies, and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). According to the study, vaccinated children have 700% more chance of developing any NDDs such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disability, and autism. So, does that mean children who are not vaccinated are healthy? At least the study indicates that.
Also, it is known that vaccinations can cause allergic reactions (2). Children who were vaccinated had 900% increase in allergies, one fold increase in allergenic rhinitis, and nine-fold increase in eczema and atopic dermatitis. Not just this, vaccinated children seemed to have 400% increased risk of chronic illnesses.
For other medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Tourette’s syndrome, encephalopathy, depression, diabetes (type1 or type2), cancer, and others, the differences were insignificant. However, the research team indicated that the size of the sample should be large to investigate the differences between the two groups for these conditions.
In the case of acute conditions, children who were vaccinated had fewer chances of having chicken pox or whooping cough, but a higher risk of ear infections (3.8%), and pneumonia (5.9%) than children who were not vaccinated.
There were no significant differences in conditions such as Hepatitis A or B, mumps, influenza, measles, or rotavirus.
The pharma industries and their accomplices might dismiss the study stating that the results cannot be verified because the survey data is anonymous. But this leaves many parents in a dilemma on whether they should get their kids vaccinated or not.
