The results of the first ever study
comparing the health of vaccinated children vs. unvaccinated
children is out, and they are already causing controversy.
For many - hundreds of thousands of
families that have already been injured by vaccines - the results
won't be surprising, but to many others, the findings might be a
little shocking. This is possibly why the scientific journal which
originally published the results withdrew the study from
The abstract of the study was published
Frontiers in Public Health
after being accepted November 2.
The study compared children's health via
surveys of mothers who home-schooled their children aged 6-12 years.
Nearly 40 percent of the children had never been vaccinated, so the
control group was adequate to do a good comparison against children
who had been vaccinated.
After heavy criticism from the public
and scientific community due to the results of the study, though, it
Those that were vaccinated were three times more likely to
be diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders such as
The abstract stated:
Vaccination and Health Outcomes
A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and
Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers' Reports
Vaccinations have prevented millions
of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among US
Yet the long-term health outcomes of
the routine vaccination program remain unknown. Studies have
been recommended by the Institute of Medicine to address this
To compare vaccinated and
unvaccinated children on a broad range of health outcomes, and
to determine whether an association found between vaccination
and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), if any, remains
significant after adjustment for other measured factors.
A cross-sectional survey of mothers
of children educated at home.
Home-school organizations in four states (Florida,
Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon) were asked to forward an
email to their members, requesting mothers to complete an
anonymous online questionnaire on the vaccination status and
health outcomes of their biological children ages 6 to 12.
A total of 415 mothers provided data
on 666 children, of which 261 (39%) were unvaccinated.
Vaccinated children were
significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been
diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more
likely to have been diagnosed with,
After adjustment, the factors that
remained significantly associated with NDD were vaccination (OR
3.1, 95% CI: 1.4, 6.8), male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.3),
and preterm birth (OR 5.0, 95% CI: 2.3, 11.6).
In a final adjusted model,
vaccination but not preterm birth remained associated with NDD,
while the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination was
associated with a 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8,
In this study based on mothers'
reports, the vaccinated had a higher rate of allergies and NDD
than the unvaccinated. Vaccination, but not preterm birth,
remained significantly associated with NDD after controlling for
However, preterm birth combined with
vaccination was associated with an apparent synergistic increase
in the odds of NDD.
Further research involving larger,
independent samples is needed to verify and understand these
unexpected findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines
on children's health.

The initial backlash was significant.
Public comments included,
"this study is of poor design,
though not impossible results. Study relies of self-report of
moms, inducing bias," and, "Another garbage vaccine study in
Frontiers journal. Scientists, stop reviewing/publishing there."
Science Blogs also quickly posted an
article titled, "Antivaccinationists
promote a bogus internet 'survey' - Hilarity ensues as it's
When the paper was pulled, the
publishers were also accused of
not following a proper retraction process.
Though the journal isn't the first to
pull a vaccine paper amid public
criticism - in February, Vaccine
temporarily removed - then
soon retracted - a paper linking
the vaccine for Human papillomavirus to behavioral problems in mice;
a modified version of the paper was later
republished, the retraction is suspect considering how
quickly the paper was pulled.
When the publishers were asked why this
happened, they simply responded that the paper was submitted for
review, but had not been approved.
Catherine J. Frompovich likely
wouldn't think the study is so 'hilarious' as Science Blogs attests.
She writes of a doctor in the UK who believes vaccines are indeed
tied to autism.
Dr. Graham Downing, who is a
Neuro-musculoskeletal and Functional Medicine consultant in the UK
has found that the vaccination of pregnant women increases
inflammation in their bodies and also increases the risk of
releasing inflammatory markers in their fetuses/infants.
Such releases include phenotypes [the
set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from
the interaction of its genotype with the environment.] Downing also
contends that the increased inflammation in cells caused by
vaccines, also elevate in the fetal brain where cytokines release
The prefrontal lobes and the limbic
system, which involves human emotions, are affected in fetuses from
pregnancy vaccines administered to moms-to-be. So, not only are
children outside the womb affected, but the
neurological/immunological decline starts while they are still in
Downing also attests that vaccines are
tied to the artificial intelligence rollout goals of the elite.
"Dr. Downing says there are
five-year and fifteen year goals for AI. The fifteen-year
goal is to have AI run everything, including humans! You
have to listen to his comments about that aspect - one word:
To 'authentic' his remarks, Doctor
cited a report issued by the White House,
"A Federal Vision for Future
Computing: A Nanotechnology-inspired Grand Challenge."
Here's what that 15-page report is
Create a new type of computer
that can proactively interpret and learn from data, solve
unfamiliar problems using what it has learned, and operate
with the energy efficiency of the human brain.
[Basically, it's an artificial brain
to replace the human brain. Also, they want to create a new soul
for humans, too!]"
So, why are vaccine promoters so quick
to dismiss, or make a drivel of a study based on mothers' health
reports of their children?
Bias or no bias - it's hard to dismiss a
340 percent increase in autism and
neurological damage rates - but those reasons are left to your
