To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate: Part 2 of 2
Do realize that that parents of unvaccinated children are clearly more concerned about the health risks of vaccines, and are more likely to make other healthier choices for their children which include but are not limited to feeding their children a much better diet, using more natural approaches and opting for far fewer drugs.
In a study published in Academic Pediatrics May-June, 2011), an estimated 43% of US children currently have at least 1 of 20 chronic health conditions which was increased to 54.1% when overweight, obesity, or being at risk for developmental delays were included.
Another study in the June 2011 issue of Pediatrics says developmental disability is on the rise in the U.S. Between 1997 and 2008, the number of school-age children diagnosed with autism, ADHD, or another developmental disability rose by about 17 percent. It also said ~15% of kids have such a disability.
Yet the public health system always uses the sacred mantra “vaccine-preventable diseases” when referring to their top public health achievement of mass vaccinations. I think we should be talking more in terms of preventable vaccine-induced diseases.
Vaccinated children were found to be about 2.5 times more likely to develop severe autism compared to unvaccinated children, a shocking find when considering medicine vehemently denies any link whatsoever between vaccines and autism.
We say to let the data speak for itself…
Though the clear correlation between vaccination and adverse health effects and outcomes does not necessarily mean that the vaccines cause these diseases, the rates of illness between the vaccinated and unvaccinated groups shows such a strong correlation that it simply cannot be ignored or denied. Even after accounting for bias and different health approaches of the parents, the data continues to show much higher disease rates among vaccinated children. In a similar but unrelated study conducted back 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.
