There is a huge bias in the US toward all things vaccines. In fact, the United States currently has the most vaccines recommended to be given to children. Here, people who choose not to vaccinate their children are vilified, turned away from pediatricians, treated rudely and even run the risk of being reported to Child Protective Services (CPS) should something happen to their child that could in any potential way be connected to the possibility that it may have stemmed from not being vaccinated.
However, outside the US, multiple studies continue to be done that clearly show that unvaccinated children are healthier than those who are vaccinated.
For example, one study from the 1990’s found that vaccinated children had a higher risk of asthma, eczema, hyperactivity, ear infections and several other chronic conditions.
For this study, a survey was taken to measure the health of children in New Zealand. This survey was performed by the Immunization Awareness Society (IAS). During the study, 245 volunteer families filled out questionnaires on their collective 495 children, with ages ranging from 2-16 years. Of this number, 226 were vaccinated and 269 were not.
The data collected including birth year, gender, list of vaccinations received and information on the child’s chronic conditions if applicable, breastfeeding and bottle feeding statistics, weaning age, and several other types of medical data.
When examined, the data showed that older siblings were more likely to be vaccinated than younger siblings. This is probably due to first time parents going along with the norm, and then educating themselves before the second child came along. Approximately 81 families in the study had older children who were vaccinated and younger children who were not.
One interesting finding was that 92% of children who had a tonsillectomy had been given the measles vaccination. This suggested that getting the measles vaccination may have put the children at higher risk for tonsillitis.
Generally, the data showed that vaccinated children were 5 times more likely to get various diseases than those who were not vaccinated.
While the conclusions from this study may sound unusual, they are actually a fairly common theme in other independent research studies that look into vaccine efficiency.
In a different German study in 2011, researchers found 4 cases of autism out of 8,000 children who were not vaccinated. However, they also found high levels of mercury and other heavy metals in these children or their mothers.
When will America sit up and pay attention to the independent research done outside of the country? It is clear that vaccines harm children, but local government agencies keep claiming that they cannot ethically run studies comparing vaccinated children to unvaccinated children. Can it be that they are afraid to have their walls come crashing down?
