An ongoing survey concerning disease rates and overall health of unvaccinated children has brought about results that may come as a shock to some. According to a report published on Friday, January 11, 2013, by Natural News, children who have been fully vaccinated according to the CDC recommended schedule are up to five times more likely to develop various diseases compared with children who have not received full immunizations.
The survey, which has nearly 12,000 participants, gathers information about gender, age, vaccination schedules, breastfeeding and preferred treatment options, in addition to information on diseases and other ailments including asthma, allergies, ADHD, autism, neurological and auto-immune disorders. The results are categorized by age and ailment, and compared with results of the German KIGGS study.
There has not been a single study done in the U.S. comparing the health of unvaccinated children to vaccinated children, but in the past 30 years, the recommended number of vaccines has more than tripled. Yet more than half of U.S. children now suffer from some type of chronic disease and nearly one fourth are developmentally disabled.
The results may come as a shock to those who have come to trust in the ability of vaccines to prevent disease and sickness. However, more families are beginning to question the effectiveness of vaccinations as epidemics of “vaccine preventable” diseases continue to make headlines.
