vaccinated children more likely to develop ADHD, autism and learning disorders

Though there has been huge debate over vaccinations, there has been surprisingly little study of the long-term health outcomes of vaccination. So, researchers set out to compare the long-term health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated people. Interestingly, they were looking at comprehensive real life outcomes: not just the vaccines effect on the targeted disease, but its effect on overall health.

The pilot study followed 666 children who were between 6 and 12 years old for 15 years. Some of the children were vaccinated, some were “partially vaccinated” and some were unvaccinated (39%). Over the 15 years, the researchers compared the children for more than 40 acute and chronic illnesses.

The results were disturbing. . . .
Vaccinated children were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with a number of conditions. Overall, they were 3.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder, like ADHD, autism or another learning disorder. Specifically, they were 4.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, 4.7 times more likely to develop ADHD and 3.7 times more likely to have a learning disability. 

For preterm infants, vaccination increased the risk of neurodevelopmental disorder 6.6 times.

Vaccinated children were also significantly more likely to suffer from allergies and eczema: their risk of hay fever was over 30 times higher than unvaccinated children. Their risk of other types of allergies increased 3.9 times, and their risk of eczema went up 2.4 times.

While vaccinated children were less likely to have chickenpox or whooping cough (pertussis), they were more likely to have pneumonia and ear infections (otitis media). Vaccinated children were 3.8 times more likely to get an ear infection.

Partially vaccinated children fell between the vaccinated and unvaccinated on several, but not all, long-term outcomes, including hay fever, ADHD, eczema and learning disabilities.

Children who were vaccinated were also a significant 2.4 times more likely to have used antibiotics in the past year and 4.6 times more likely to have had to have taken medication for fever.
