Vaccinated children more prone to disease

Unvaccinated Children Have Much Lower Rates of Chronic Illness, New Jackson State Study Finds

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. May 19,  2017

The first peer-reviewed study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated children versus unvaccinated was recently published in the Journal of Translational Science by epidemiologists from the School of Public Health at Jackson State University. The study’s conclusions are likely to inflame the fierce debate over whether vaccines and a mercury- containing vaccine preservative may be culprits in the dramatic rise in certain neurodevelopmental disorders in our children, including autism.


The “Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children” implicates vaccines in a host of chronic illnesses now epidemic in our  nation’s children. The team of  scientists, led by the renowned  epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Mawson, the author of more  than fifty published studies,  concluded that “In a final  adjusted model designed to test  for this possibility, controlling  for the interaction of preterm  birth and vaccination, the  following factors remained  significantly associated with  NDD: vaccination (OR 2.5, 95%  CI: 1.1, 5.6), non-white race (OR  2.4, 95% CI: 1.1, 5.4), and male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2,  4.4). Preterm birth itself, however, was not significantly associated with NDD, whereas the combination (interaction) of preterm birth and vaccination was associated with 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI:  2.8, 15.5) (Table 8).” Jackson State is a leading university research centre. 

The study suggests that fully vaccinated children may be trading the prevention of certain acute illnesses (chicken pox, pertussis) for more chronic illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) like ADHD and Autism.

In order to find a large  population of children who  hadn’t received any vaccines, the Jackson State scientists utilized  Home-school organizations in  four states and compared the  incidence of a broad range of  health outcomes in 666 children, 39% of whom were unvaccinated. Among the more concerning findings, vaccinated children had increased risks of autism (4.2 times), ADHD (4.2 times), learning disabilities (5.2 times) eczema (2.9 times), and an astounding 30 times the risk of allergic rhinitis compared to unvaccinated children. 

As would be expected, vaccinated children did have lower likelihood of two vaccine- preventable illnesses compared  to unvaccinated children: chicken pox (7.9% vs. 25.3%), and  pertussis (2.5% vs. 8.4%), but the scientists found no  significant differences in rates of other vaccine-preventable  illnesses like hepatitis A or B,  measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, meningitis or  rotavirus. 

The study suggests that fully vaccinated children may be trading the prevention of certain acute illnesses (chicken pox, pertussis) for more chronic illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) like ADHD and Autism.

Despite numerous requests over the years from parents and vaccine safety advocates for just this type of research, the CDC has failed to act. The Jackson State scientists called for more scientific studies to help explain and clarify these findings.
