How Does The Health of Vaccinated Children Compare to Unvaccinated Children?

vaccinated-versus-unvaccinatedBy Michelle Goldstein

While there have been no official US government-sponsored studies comparing the health of vaccinated to unvaccinated children, several independently funded studies have been done in the US and overseas. The majority of these studies have been conducted abroad, but many involve American children.

What do these studies show? The research demonstrates conclusively that unvaccinated children enjoy far superior health when compared to those vaccinated. Unvaccinated children experience almost no incidence of autism, autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes and other common childhood diseases which have reached epidemic proportions in recent years.

The Research Studies

One of the most comprehensive studies is an ongoing comparative survey by German homeopathic physician Andreas Bachmair. Bachmair is conducting an independent study comparing the health of vaccinated to unvaccinated children with 17,461 participants.

This research has found a significant increase in the following diseases in those vaccinated: asthma, allergies, bronchitis, otitis media (ear infections), hay fever, herpes, neurodermatitis, hyperactivity, scoliosis, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, thyroid disease, autism and diabetes. Furthermore, Bachmair discovered three other studies which substantiated his findings.

For comprehensive survey results for this published study, see this link.

The majority of those who participated were Americans, with 25 percent of participants comprised of Germans. Ninety-nine percent of those who chose not to vaccinate their children reported to be happy with their decision. Because this study is ongoing, study numbers will vary depending on the report viewed. [1]

Bachmair’s reports further demonstrated that the unvaccinated children very rarely suffered from the following heath conditions: dyslexia, speech delays, bed wetting, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, GERDs. [2]

In a Salzberger study, of 1,004 unvaccinated children, zero children had asthma, compared to 8-12 percent of the vaccinated population; 1.2 percent of unvaccinated children suffered with dermatitis while 10-20 percent of children vaccinated experienced dermatitis; three percent of unvaccinated children compared to 25 percent of vaccinated experienced allergies; and less than one percent of unvaccinated children were diagnosed with ADHD, compared to 5-10 percent of those vaccinated.

A study in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, which studied the children of 15,000 mothers between 1990-1996, demonstrated that the death rate for children vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough was double for those who had been vaccinated.

A New Zealand study involved 254 children in which 133 children were vaccinated while 121 remained unvaccinated. This comparative study found that the unvaccinated children enjoyed far superior health when the following diseases were studied: tonsillitis, asthma, allergic rashes, SIDS, ear infections and hyperactivity.

Vaccinated children experienced 2 to 10 times higher rates of illness compared to those vaccinated. [3]

Research On Autism And Neurological Disorders

In the Amish community of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, one in 4,875 children were diagnosed with autism. Of the four total Amish children diagnosed, one had been exposed to high levels of mercury from a power plant and three others, including one adopted outside of the community, had been vaccinated. This rate is extremely low to non-existent compared to those vaccinated. Similarly, the Amish of Ohio show that one out of 10,000 children are diagnosed with autism.  In the general US population, one in 45 children is now being diagnosed with autism. [4, 5]

In a Homefirst Health Services survey in which 90 percent of children have had no vaccinations, none of the 35,000 children had an autism diagnosis. Furthermore, these children had extremely low asthma rates.

In a Cal-Oregon survey of 9,000 boys, those children vaccinated experienced a 155 percent greater chance of having a neurological disorder such as autism or ADHD.

More Science On Vaccines

In Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Tradition’s Book of Baby and Childcare, five studies are reported, including the Africa and German study previously discussed. The studies all conclude that unvaccinated children enjoy better health than those who have been vaccinated.

A 2004 British study of 8,000 unvaccinated children, which included medical documentation for each child, revealed that vaccinated children experienced two to five times more illness and disorders compared to unvaccinated children. [7]

In a 1997 New Zealand study, 1265 children were surveyed. Of those children who were vaccinated, 23 percent were reported to suffer from asthma and 30 percent suffered from allergies, compared to none in the vaccinated group. [8]

A 1992 New Zealand study of 495 children concluded that vaccinated children suffer far more compared to unvaccinated children. Diseases studied included tonsillitis, ear infections, sleep apnea, hyperactivity and epilepsy. Vaccinated children suffered up to ten times more from these illnesses. [9]


While government groups maintain that no studies have been done to compare the health of vaccinated to unvaccinated, the reality is that several comparative studies have been completed by independent researchers in the US and in other countries.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refuses to conduct such studies, claiming they would be unethical to perform. In reality, these studies could easily be performed, since many educated parents choose to not vaccinate their children.

The evidence is overwhelming. Studies completed in New Zealand, Germany, Africa, Great Britain and the United States have come to the same conclusion. Unvaccinated children enjoy far superior health on all measures of disease entities.

    And all the “pro vaxers” have to do is make a “Cute” video of a child in a lab coat telling people “you don’t vaccinate you’re stupid” and that’s “evidence” to debunk all the “anti vaccine” “conspiracy theories”

  • disqus_q0fJBDaGHm

    and a twelve year old, no less!
    You can add three perfectly healthy boys 18, 23, 27 to the unvaccinated data. In so many of these cases the data is already there.

  • carsondyal

    So, all those millions who received the Salk vaccine to prevent polio in the 1950’s should have been left untreated? Polio wasn’t crippling people. I lived through it. I saw it. What about smallpox? Should all vaccines be eliminated? Why do so few Americans know any real history? Or care to know?

  • Tom

    The current level of vaccinations has been dependent on three things:
    – A gullible, uninformed public
    – Control of a complicit media owned by the same people who own the Big Pharma corporations
    – Government aid (medicare, etc.) for parents who would otherwise not be able to afford the high cost of the vaccination schedule

    – The public is waking up
    – Alternative media is spreading the truth
    – Government is bankrupt and can only continue feeding money to Big Pharma via Zimbabwe-style money printing

    Therefore: In a few years we will be able to look in the rearview mirror and see the current vaccination schedule and the health catastrophe it has caused as a one-time pulse waveform.

    Cleen water and efficient renovation, and sanitary systems that accutally works is what dragged humanity upward, London in it self is an prime ex. on just that.
    The black plauge asnt left us at all, but the conditions for it to be of that sice and scope isnt here, for the moment no, in war sones, yea.

    Powerty kills, period.

    And warp it with malnutrion, non existing water quality, what do you then expect.
    And injection of vaccines into an envirioment where the helth is already under attac is downright murder.
    The Zika Scam/Scare is just that, another massive hoax to make money and pimp more vaccines, and so on, the show must go on, and of course we are anti-scientific conspiracy nutts.


  • Anti Everything

    Yes they should be eliminated. Polio was naturally in decline when the medical industry ‘cured; it with a profitable poison. Small pox? What about it? Native Indian in the Americas were delivered contaminated blankets from people that must have been immune. Your comment is confusing as well.

  • Season341

    Hate to have to don my “teacher hat”, but there are at least 3 rather serious typo errors in this article, the first two being under the heading “RESEARCH STUDIES” in West Africa and New Zealand, and the third under “MORE SCIENCE ON VACCINES” where each time at the end of the paragraph or sentence comparing non-vaxed to vaxed, the word “vaccinated” should read “unvaccinated”. Correct me if I’m wrong, but correct the article, if I’m correct!

  • Ex_MislTech

    The vaccines for serious illness are good ideas, but we need to get them to leave out really nasty adjuvants, such as thimerisal, and shark based squalene, etc etc… proof has been shown the most flu vaccines are for the
    wrong strain that become predominant each year. The CDC knew for years that thimerisal caused autism and the vaccine producers refused to remove it.
    There is a lower per capita instance of autism among the unvaccinated.

  • Glenn Festog

    You mean the vaccine that was later found to be contaminated with sv-40 monkey virus? I suggest you don’t know anything about the results of the Salk vaccination program, or that the vaccine also caused cases of paralysis.

    You might start with looking up the real history of the AMA.

  • PJ London

    There is no evidence that the vaccine reduced the incidence of Polio.
    Salk himself said that the vaccine had not eradicated or reduced Polio.

    “In 1977, Dr Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, testified along with other scientists that mass inoculation against polio was the cause of most polio cases throughout the USA since 1961. (Science 4/4/77 “Abstracts” )”
    “The truth is over 90% of the cases where people contracted Polio, the symptoms experienced were very minute. Most symptoms included a slight fever, headache, sore throat, and vomiting. The recovery time was 24 – 72 hrs. Once recovered, the person now has a life time immunity to Polio. 5% of people who contracted Polio had less symptoms and recovery time was much less. They would see some sore throat and possibly a fever. Rare cases saw diarrhea. Then we get to 3% of people who had a bit more extreme cases where they may have seen some limb weakness and partial paralysis that would be experienced for 2 – 10 days. This only happened when areas of the brain that controlled limbs were irritated by a form of viral meningitis. All cases saw a complete recovery and life long immunity. Now we get to the worst cases of them all. Less than 2% of cases saw some form of more serious paralysis. Of that 2% though 50% saw complete recovery over time from the paralysis.”
    “Six New England states reported increases in polio one year after the Salk vaccine was introduced, ranging from more than doubling in Vermont to Massachusetts’ astounding increase of 642%; other states reported increases as well. ”
    “It is important to understand that the polio vaccine was not universally accepted, at least initially. Despite this, polio declined both in European countries that refused mass vaccination as well as in those that employed it.”
    “The science behind vaccinations has long been proven to be completely ineffective and the continued use of vaccines only shows the real purpose behind them.”

    Carsion Dyal, go away you horrible troll.

  • carsondyal

    Yes, it was confusing because there should have been a question mark after “Polio wasn’t crippling people?” And yes, the Europeans murdered many Native Americans with those blankets. But before they themselves had built up an immunity, great numbers of them had died, too. To say all vaccines are harmful and useless is unwarranted. If you’re anti-everything, what are you in favor of?

  • carsondyal

    PJ London, you might at least spell my username correctly. I’m no troll, but perhaps you are. You put quotes around text but do not tell us where this comes from. And if you bothered to read your quoted passages, they largely refute your position, except for the last sentence, which makes no sense based on the previous paragraphs. Adios.

  • PJ London

    Ah, you noticed my deliberate mistake, you can read, what a surprise as your comments display abysmal ignorance.
    You clearly are too lazy to do any research, as ten seconds of paste and copy would provide the sources to the quotes.
    The quotes, if you actually read them provide support to exactly what I said. “polio declined both in European countries that refused mass vaccination as well as in those that employed it.” – “The science behind vaccinations has long been proven to be completely ineffective “.
    Now you may not like the facts, you may be ignorant of the facts, but when someone rubs your nose in them, you will at least be aware of the facts.
    I called you a troll, because I cannot believe that in this day and age, anyone supporting forced or any vaccination could be honestly that stupid.

  • emilypemily

    I was confused by this too. Obviously, it’s a major typo when it renders the info indecipherable!! Here they are comparing vaccinated children to vaccinated children:
    “A study in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, which studied the children of 15,000 mothers between 1990-1996, demonstrated that the death rate for children vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough was double for those who had been vaccinated.”
    And here:
    “Vaccinated children experienced 2 to 10 times higher rates of illness compared to those vaccinated. [3]”
    And here:
    “In a 1997 New Zealand study, 1265 children were surveyed. Of those children who were vaccinated, 23 percent were reported to suffer from asthma and 30 percent suffered from allergies, compared to none in the vaccinated group. [8]”

  • blackberry

    Protection from illness should be natural process not a chemical medical process. Also illness is a result of cause and effect and can be a healing reaction. For example you can not vaccinate against alcohol toxicity.

  • blackberry

    They did not murder anyone with blankets! The only way would be to use force or fire or very toxic chemical to kill with a blanket. Some Natives we sick already when they received the gift. Just because someone receives a get well card does mean the card caused the sickness or death.
