Editorial: Trump Must Launch Vaccine Safety Commission ASAP After Study Censorship

By On February 23, 2017

The controversy over vaccines, vaccine additives and their potential side effects seems to be getting more and more contentious by the day, with many wondering whether President Donald Trump will investigate the issue further in the form of a vaccine safety commission.

The possibility was mentioned by Robert Kennedy, Jr., who said Trump had asked him about heading such a commission in the past and that he has recently spoken with the White House about the possibility three separate times since then.

If such a commission is indeed created, there’s one particular study, a recent survey of mothers reporting on unvaccinated vs. vaccinated kids, that should garner plenty of attention and analysis.

But a surprisingly small amount of people know about it because of what one author and journalist is calling a major case of censorship.

Censored Study of Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated?

While the CDC has done its best to fend off questions from critics who point out the many serious cases of harm caused by vaccines and their additives, one question has been particularly nagging: why hasn’t there been a major study of unvaccinated vs. vaccinated kids for health outcomes?

Recently James O. Grundvig, an author and journalist (Huffington Post) wrote about the first-of-its-kind “vaccinated versus unvaccinated” study, published on November 21 of 2016, and had the following to say:

“After 30 years of the government immunizing the vaccine makers from harm, the long-delayed, first-of-its-kind study on ‘vaccinated versus unvaccinated’ children has arrived,” he said. “From five years of designing and conducting the epidemiology survey to more than one censorship roadblock from scientific journals to thwart the study’s findings — a damning indictment against vaccines being a false flag cure-all — it appeared in the public domain…”

According to Grundvig, the 34-page study was online for six hours on Valentine’s Day before the URL link disappeared. The study’s author confirmed its authenticity, he said, but only the abstract is available to read online now.

The study, Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports, by Anthony R. Mawson, et al., is unique in that it was not financed by government sources.

The findings of the study may have revealed information that runs counter to the CDC’s narrative of vaccine safety, Grundvig says.

Why hasn’t the CDC ever sponsored such a study?” he asks in this recent article on Medium. “Did the health agency neglect doing so by design? After reading Mawson’s conclusions, that appears to be the case since it would have run counter to CDC’s messaging that all ‘vaccines are safe.’”

Grundvig continues:

“Some of the study’s findings are eye opening, such as chronic issues disproportionately affecting children along racial, gender, and social class fault-lines in ways that neither the authors nor sponsors imagined.”

And the incidences of a particular class of disorder that includes autism, neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), rose.

“In summary, vaccination, nonwhite race, and male gender were significantly associated with NDD after controlling for other factors,” Grundvig points out in the article. “Preterm birth combined with vaccination was a strong and synergistic factor for NDD in the final model, more than doubling the odds of NDD compared to vaccination alone.”

In the study, NDDs are defined as “Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability.”

Also noted was the following:

“Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media [ear infection], allergies and NDDs” the article notes.

Despite the effectiveness against the two diseases, several health problem increases were recorded, and boys born early and especially from different racial backgrounds appear to be the most heavily affected.

The data was collected from 415 mothers on 666 children, of which 261 (39%) were unvaccinated. The vaccinated group was “significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and NDDs (defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability).”

Study Disappears After Going “Viral”

Despite the eye-opening findings in the study and a widespread surge in interest and shares online, the study was taken down relatively quickly. It was not retracted by the journal it was published in, but rather “unaccepted,” according to an email from Mawson.

As Grundvig writes in the article:

“That means Frontiers didn’t retract it, since it was never officially published. What’s left for a study after it’s accepted, reviewed 80,000 times in less than 100 hours? . . . Censorship.”

“Beyond that clarification, Mawson wrote: ‘I am not allowed to comment on the paper/work by my Dean.’”
