The debate on the overall safety of vaccines has taken dramatic turns in recent years, with more and more studies, and cases of serious harm inflicted, coming to light thanks to alternative media and social media, among other sources.
Vaccine and drug corporations insist that their products are safe, but meanwhile cases of serious harm continue to surface, leading many to question why the government has paid out billions of dollars in damages since a 1986 ruling that allowed the companies to evade lawsuits.
Even so, the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge the nagging health questions surrounding vaccines.
But a cautionary new study from researchers out of the Yale School of Medicine and the Penn State College of Medicine has many wondering whether the issue will finally begin getting more attention.
Disturbing Link Found Between Vaccines and Brain Disorders
According to a new article from Robert Kennedy, Jr. on the website EcoWatch.com, the link was found between the disorders and the timing of vaccines in a certain subset of children.
Researchers from the two universities analyzed five years of private health insurance data from kids in the 6-15 age range, and found that those who were vaccinated in the prior 3-12 months were “significantly more likely to be diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts,” the article said.
The study was quietly published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychiatry on January 19. A quick Google search of the media outlets covering it reveals only the article from EcoWatch; even though the study involved a large sample size and was conducted by two highly credible academic institutions, it has mostly evaded media coverage.
According to the article, over 95,000 kids analyzed had one of seven neuropsychiatric disorders: anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and tic disorder.
They were compared against kids without neuropsychiatric disorders, and to kids with conditions that could not possibly be related to vaccines: open wounds and broken bones.
“This was a well-designed, tightly controlled study,” wrote Kennedy, who recently said he was asked to chair a commission on vaccine safety and scientific integrity by President Donald Trump.
Kids with broken bones and open wounds showed no connection to vaccinations, as expected. Those with major depression, bipolar disorders and ADHD also did not show any significant association with vaccinations, the article continued.
However, those who had been vaccinated were also 80 percent more likely to be diagnosed with anorexia, and 25 percent more likely to be diagnosed with OCD than their non-vaccinated counterparts.
The researchers came to the following conclusions.
“This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals,” they wrote.
“These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions.”
