Anti-vaxxers who refuse to vaccinate their children against childhood diseases are considered insane conspiracy theorists who put the health of their children at risk.
Now a ten-year study validates their fears that there may be a link to vaccines and an increase in childhood disorders.
54 percent of children and young adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic illnesses that require lifelong pharmaceutical prescriptions.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) refused to conduct a study comparing vaccinated children with their unvaccinated peers.
So pediatricians in Oregon took it upon themselves to conduct a study after they noticed respiratory illnesses in children skyrocketing over the past 30 years.
Dr. Paul Thomas, M.D., conducted the ten year study at Integrative Pediatric that found unvaccinated children were considerably healthier than vaccinated children. The results of the study were published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
The study, which followed 3,300 vaccinated and unvaccinated pediatric patients for ten years, revealed that unvaccinated children required 25 times LESS visits to the doctor for respiratory ailments than vaccinated children.
Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld found that vaccinated children were more likely to suffer from asthma, ear infections, allergies, sinus infections and skin rashes than unvaccinated children.
The CDC recommends over 70 doses of 16 vaccines for a child before he reaches the age of 18.
Children who received 90 to 95% of the recommended vaccines were about 25 times more likely to see the pediatrician than the unvaccinated children.
