Nigeria: Research Shows Vaccinated Children Are More Prone to Disease

A STUDY comparing disease rates among vaccinated and unvaccinated children has indicated that children who have been vaccinated according to official government schedules are up to five times more likely to contract a preventable disease than children who developed their own immune systems naturally without vaccines.

Findings of the German study reported by Health Freedom Alliance, and first released as a preliminary study in September 2011, includes data on 8,000 unvaccinated children whose overall disease rates were compared to disease rates among the general population, the vast majority of which has been vaccinated.

In every single disease category, unvaccinated children fared far better than vaccinated children in terms of both disease prevalence and severity. Data at VaccineInjury.info, said vaccinated children are nearly twice as likely as unvaccinated children to develop neurodermatitis - a skin disorder marked by chronic itching and scratching.

Similarly, vaccinated children are about two-and-a-half times as likely, based on current data, to develop a pattern of migraine headaches compared to unvaccinated children.

For asthma and chronic bronchitis, where vaccinated children are about eight times more likely than unvaccinated children to develop such respiratory problems.

Vaccinated children are also far more likely to develop hyperactivity, hayfever, and thyroid disease, with their likelihood three times, four times, and up to 17 times higher, respectively, compared to unvaccinated children.

According to the data, vaccinated children are about 2.5 times more likely to develop severe autism compared to unvaccinated children. Though the correlation does not necessarily conclude causation, the overall disparity of disease rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated children at the very least points to a very strong connection that cannot be denied or dismissed.

Even after accounting for bias, as the survey's authors have tried to do over the years, the data continues to show much higher disease rates among vaccinated children compared to unvaccinated children.

In a similar but unrelated study in the 1990s, researchers found that the death rate among vaccinated children for infection with diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis) is also twice as high, on average, compared to unvaccinated children.
