Twenty-one Questions About the Ebola Virus

#1) How can U.S. health authorities claim there is zero risk from Ebola patients being treated in U.S. hospitals when those same hospitals can’t control superbug infections? “Many hospitals are poorly prepared to contain any pathogen. That’s why at least 75,000 people a year die from hospital infections. If hospitals can’t stop common infections like MRSA, C. diff and VRE, they can’t handle Ebola.” – Fox News (1)

#2) Why should we trust the CDC’s handling of Ebola when the agency can’t even keep track of its anthrax, avian flu and smallpox samples?

#3) Why were Ebola victims transported to cities in the USA when they could be given state-of-the-art medical care overseas? “Now, they are bringing in highly infectious patients into this nation that is Ebola-free. In doing so, they are violating the primary rule of contagion: isolation.” – Radio host Michael Savage (2)

#4) Why is the company working on Ebola vaccines — Tekmira — receiving money from Monsanto and considers Monsanto to be one of its important business partners? (3)

#5) If Ebola is “not a threat” to U.S. citizens as government authorities keep claiming, then why did the U.S. Department of Defense spend $140 million on an Ebola-related contract with the Tekmira company?

#6) If Ebola is not a threat to the U.S., then why did the Department of Defense deploy Ebola detection equipment to all 50 states? (4)

#7) Why did President Obama just sign a new executive order authorizing the government arrest and quarantine of Americans who show symptoms of respiratory infections? (5)

The language of his new executive order states that government officials may forcibly detain and quarantine people with:

…diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.

#8) How can we trust a government to tell us the truth about Ebola when that same government repeatedly lies about Swine Flu, influenza, Fukushima radiation, weather control technology, the security of the border and seemingly everything else?

#9) If U.S. doctors claim to be so incredibly careful around Ebola that the virus could not possibly escape from the containment rooms at Emory University, then how did the American doctors being treated there contract Ebola in the first place? Weren’t they also being careful?

#10) How are U.S. doctors and health workers supposed to even identify people with Ebola when they appear “fit and healthy” right until the very end? “What’s shocking is how healthy the patients look before they die and how quickly they decline. A number of the Ebola patients I’ve seen look quite fit and healthy and can be walking around until shortly before their deaths.” – Dr. Oliver Johnson (6)

#11) If Ebola is not spread through the air as some claim, then why do doctors who treat Ebola patients always wear masks?

#12) If hospitals are good at infection control, then why did so many SARS victims contract the infection while sitting in waiting rooms at hospitals? “A government report later concluded that for the hospital overcome by SARS, ‘infection control was not a high priority.’ Eventually, 77% of the people who contracted SARS there got it while working, visiting or being treated in a hospital.” – Fox News (7)

#13) If Ebola escapes from patients at Emory University and begins to infect the public, do you think we would ever be told the truth about it? Or instead, would the official story claim that “Ebola terrorists” let it loose?

#14) WHO BENEFITS FROM AN EBOLA OUTBREAK in the USA? This is a key question to ask, and the answers are obvious: the CDC, vaccine manufacturers and pharma companies, and anyone in government who wants to declare a police state and start rounding people up for quarantine in a medical emergency.

#15) We already know there are powerful people who openly promote population reduction (Bill Gates, Ted Turner, etc.) Is a staged Ebola outbreak possibly a deliberate population reduction plan by some group that doesn’t value human life and wants to rapidly reduce the population?

#16) Why are U.S. health authorities intentionally concealing from the public the true number of possible Ebola victims in U.S. hospitals who are being tested for Ebola right now? “In an apparent attempt to avoid hysteria, U.S. health authorities are withholding details about a number of suspected Ebola victims from the public.” – Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars (8)

#17) If Ebola infections are so easy to control (as is claimed by U.S. health authorities), then why are Ebola victim bodies being openly dumped in the streets in West Africa? “Relatives of Ebola victims in Liberia defied government quarantine orders and dumped infected bodies in the streets as West African governments struggled to enforce tough measures to curb an outbreak…” – Reuters (9)

#18) Why do many locals in Sierra Leone truly believe the recent Ebola outbreak was deliberately caused by government officials? “Ebola is a new disease in Sierra Leone and when the first cases emerged, many people thought it might be a government conspiracy to undermine certain tribal groups, steal organs or get money from international donors…” – The Daily Mail (6)

#19) Given that the U.S. government has already funded outrageous medical experiments on Americans and foreigners (see the NIH-funded Guatemalan medical experiments), why should we not believe the government is capable of deploying Ebola in bioweapons experiments in West Africa?

#20) Given that many vaccines accidentally cause the disease they claim to prevent (due to weakened viruses still remaining active in a small number of vaccine vials), isn’t it likely that Ebola vaccines might actually cause Ebola infections in some percentage of those receiving them? How can we trust any vaccines when vaccine manufacturers have been granted absolute legal immunity from faulty products or failures in quality control?

#21) How can we trust a medical system that continues to put mercury in flu shots, refuses to recommend vitamin D to cancer patients and has been criminally corrupted to the point where drug companies are routinely charged with felony crimes for bribery and price fixing?

CDC Getting Calls from People Who are Ill After Visiting Africa

Should we be alarmed?

 CDC Getting Dozens Of Calls ‘About People Who Are Ill After Traveling In Africa’

Image Credits: Wikimedia Commons

Should we be alarmed that the CDC has received “several dozen calls” from hospitals around the country “about people who are ill after traveling in Africa”?  As you will read about below, a lot more Ebola testing has been going on around the nation than we have been hearing about in the mainstream media.  I can understand the need to keep people calm, but don’t we have a right to know what is really going on?  And the media has also been very quiet about the fact that Ebola is now potentially spreading to even more countries.  As you will read about below, a Liberian man just died from Ebola in Morocco, and a man that traveled to Saudi Arabia from Sierra Leone on Sunday night is being tested for Ebola after exhibiting “symptoms of the viral hemorrhagic fever”.  Top officials in the U.S. keep assuring us that everything is going to be just fine, but the truth is that this is a crisis that is beginning to spiral out of control. On Tuesday, the CDC told Time Magazine that it had received dozens of calls from all over the United States about people that had gotten sick after traveling to Africa…

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told TIME on Tuesday that it’s received several dozen calls from states and hospitals about people who are ill after traveling in Africa. “We’ve triaged those calls and about half-dozen or so resulted in specimen coming to CDC for testing and all have been negative for Ebola,” CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said, adding that the agency is expecting still more calls to come in.

Let’s certainly hope that there is nothing to be concerned about in any of those calls.  The consequences of having a major Ebola outbreak in the United States could potentially be absolutely catastrophic. Meanwhile, there is a case in Saudi Arabia that has health officials over there extremely concerned.  A man that traveled to the country on Sunday night is being tested for the virus after showing symptoms of “viral hemorrhagic fever”

Saudi Arabia said Tuesday it is testing a man for the Ebola virus after he showed symptoms of the viral hemorrhagic fever following a recent trip to Sierra Leone. The Health Ministry said the symptoms appeared in the 40-year-old Saudi man at a hospital in the western city of Jiddah. He is in critical condition and being treated in a unit with advanced isolation and infection-control capabilities. Different types of viral hemorrhagic fevers have been found in the kingdom, but no case of Ebola has ever been detected there, according to the ministry.

In addition, it is being reported by international media sources that a Liberian has died of the Ebola virus in Morocco. If that is true, that is extremely troubling.  That would mean that we now have confirmed Ebola cases in five different countries. And remember, the Ebola virus can have an incubation period of up to three weeks, and Ebola victims can “look quite fit and healthy and can be walking around until shortly before their deaths“. Because of this, hospitals across America are being extremely cautions right now.  The following is from a recent NPR report

If you show up at a hospital emergency department with a high fever and you just happen to have been traveling in Africa, don’t be surprised if you get a lot of attention. Hospitals are on the lookout for people with symptoms such as a high fever, vomiting and diarrhea who had been traveling in parts of West Africa affected by Ebola, following instructions from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And there have been some high profile cases that have gotten a lot of attention in recent days. The woman that was being tested for Ebola in Ohio got a lot of media attention, but it turns out that she does not have the disease. We are still waiting to hear about the man that was admitted to Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.  Officials say that he “probably does not have Ebola“, but the test results have not been released yet. In addition, Paul Joseph Watson has pointed out that CNN’s Sanjay Gupta has publicly revealed that there have actually been “about half a dozen patients” that have been tested for the virus in recent days…

During a segment concerning the admission of a potential Ebola victim at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta revealed that there have been at least six cases at the hospital which prompted doctors to test for Ebola but that the details were not divulged publicly. “There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public,” said Gupta, adding, “I’m not sure if that’s because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly.”

What else is going on around the nation that we have not heard about? Like I keep saying, let us hope and pray that Ebola does not start spreading here, because it can rapidly become a nightmare.  Over in Africa, nearly 900 people have already died, but one doctor told CBS News that the true number is actually significantly higher because “many cases are going unreported”…

Already, the World Health Organization says 887 people have died, but a top doctor working at the heart of the outbreak in West Africa says many cases are going unreported. The senior doctor, who works for a leading medical organization in Liberia, explained to CBS News’ Debora Patta that what has helped set this outbreak apart from previous ones is the virus’ spread in urban areas. One of the epicenters of the disease is the Liberian capital of Monrovia, home to about a million people, or almost a quarter of the country’s population. The doctor, who spoke to CBS News on condition of confidentiality, said the disease is spinning out of control in Africa partly because it is extremely difficult to contain it in a sprawling, congested city center.

And it certainly does not help that infected bodies are being dumped into the streets over in Liberia.  If that continues to happen, this epidemic could very rapidly turn into a raging inferno over there. There have been health scares in the past, but this one is very different.  If you get Ebola, you are probably going to die.  And right now the number of Ebola cases is growing at an exponential rate.  If this outbreak is not brought under control soon, we could be facing the worst health crisis that we have seen in any of our lifetimes.

Ohio Woman Being Tested for Ebola

Hospitals across the country are isolating and testing potential Ebola patients, erring on the side of caution as the largest Ebola outbreak to date rages in West Africa.

A 46-year-old Columbus, Ohio, woman who recently traveled to one of the three countries affected by the outbreak is being held in isolation at a local hospital, the Columbus health department said today. She was hospitalized several days ago but is “doing well” as she awaits Ebola test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which are expected today or Wednesday, the health department said.

The CDC last week sent a health alert to hospitals across the country urging them to ask patients about their travel history to help identify potential Ebola cases. The CDC said has tested blood samples from six people with possible Ebola symptoms who had recently traveled to West Africa.

Emergency room physicians at Johns Hopkins Medicine thought one of their patients had Ebola Friday, but it turned out to be a false alarm, according to an internal memo obtained by ABC News.

The patient was ultimately diagnosed with malaria, but Dr. Trish Perl, a senior epidemiologist at the hospital in Baltimore, wrote in a memo to her staff that those involved did a “remarkable job” identifying and isolating the patient as well as making sure a minimal number of people were at risk for contracting the virus.

“This is a ‘wake up’ call for all of us to recognize that we are vulnerable because of the patients we serve and our location,” Perl wrote.

What Happens Once Ebola Patients Arrive in the US

Johns Hopkins Medicine said it could not provide more information because of patient confidentiality and federal privacy laws.

“Our staff trains frequently to ensure that the hospital is prepared for all types of scenarios,” the hospital said in a statement to ABC News. “If a patient were to have suspected Ebola virus, the patient would be placed in isolation, staff would begin taking standard precautions, and the patient would be evaluated by our infectious disease specialists.”

On Monday, Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City announced that it was treating a potential Ebola patient who recently traveled to West Africa and was experiencing a high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms.

“Many things cause fever and gastrointestinal symptoms,” ABC News chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser said shortly after Mount Sinai’s announcement on Monday. “The steps they are taking are wise given the travel history, but nothing about the symptoms is specific to Ebola.”

Doctors isolated the patient and sent blood samples to the CDC for testing, but Mount Sinai officials said at a news conference Monday night that the patient was “unlikely” to have the deadly virus.

The death toll of the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone climbed to 887, theWorld Health Organization said Monday. 1,603 people have been infected, in all.

Ebola Virus: ‘Horrible Way to Die’ and No Vaccine

Medical staff put on protective gear at Kenema Government Hospital before taking a sample from a suspected Ebola patient in Kenema, Sierra Leone.

At least 826 people have died in West Africa from the Ebola virus.

Even though the number is expected to rise, it’s still more deaths than any previous outbreak of the deadly disease.

And that ironically, may be why there’s no vaccine or treatment available.

“Prior episodes burned themselves out with fewer deaths after a shorter time,” said Dr. Aileen Marty, an infectious disease professor at Florida International University.

“That’s meant less of a feeling that a vaccine should be on the market,” she explained. “There’s no money in it. But it’s such a horrible way to die.”

Experts say there are Ebola treatments and vaccines in various testing stages at several U.S. research centers, mostly funded by the government. Most of the drugs have been tested so far mostly on animals, with no target date for availability.

There are a few small American companies developing treatments, such asBioCryst and NancoViricides, One Canadian firm, Tekmira, is also working on a treatment, with funds from the U.S Defense Department.Larger outfits have shied away.

“It’s tough to develop these drugs because they might not even be used,” said Dr. Chris Milne, director of research at the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development.

Milne said that pharmaceutical companies can spend millions in developing flu vaccines that get thrown away because they’re ineffective on new virus strains.

“It’s a lot of time, effort and money to develop something like an Ebola vaccine with little guarantee of a profit,” he said.

Heading to Sierra Leone

Just this weekend, the Centers for Disease Control said the Ebola virus is out of control and has advised against non-essential travel to West Africa.

FIU’s Marty is likely to arrive over the next couple of weeks in Sierra Leone, one of the countries hit by the virus.

She’s on a list of doctors taking part in the new $100 million effort by the World Health Organization to treat Ebola patients.

This comes as two American aid workers have been diagnosed with the virus and one of them treated in an isolation unit at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He is said to be in a critical phase of the disease, but improving.

“If we could get approval from the governments in West Africa, this could be a perfect way to try the vaccines out,” said Marty. But so far, Marty said, that permission has yet to come.

Asked if she had fears about going, she said it’s natural to be afraid.

“I’ve made my plans, like insurance and next of kin, but I’m feeling confident we’ll be protected over there with good equipment and proper hygiene,” she explained.

High mortality rate

Ebola is a severe and nearly always fatal disease to humans, according to WHO.

There are several strains with an incubation period of up to 21 days after infection.

Symptoms include fever, weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function and, in some cases, both internal and external bleeding.

Transmission of the virus happens in several ways. Humans and animals can be infected by fruit bats, which are believed to be the first hosts of the virus.

Humans can get it from infected animals, either by slaughtering the animals or through consumption of blood, milk, or raw or under-cooked meat.

Between humans, the virus can be passed from person to person through touch, contact with body fluids, or contact with contaminated needles.

Funeral practices are ‘transmitters’

More than 1,300 people have been infected with Ebola over the last three months. This recent outbreak is believed to have started in Liberia.

The government there has called the crisis a national public emergency and has urged citizens to follow health guidelines. Sierra Leone has declared a state of emergency and called in troops to quarantine Ebola victims.

This outbreak has become extremely dangerous, said experts, because the virus has spread to more populated areas than in the past.

Liberia has threatened to arrest those who hide Ebola victims. Some residents are said to be removing patients from hospitals for special prayers or to treat them with local medicine.

“One of the main transmitters are the funeral practices,” said Dr. Steven Vryhof, who returned last month from Liberia after working there for two weeks with the medical aid group, Mission to Heal.

Vryhof said many people insist on burying the dead, which means shaving the men and braiding women’s hair and so exposing themselves to the Ebola virus.

Americans should be ‘prepared’

As to fears the Ebola virus could spread to the U.S, it’s been here before.

In the years, 1989, 1990 and 1996, Ebola was found in quarantined monkeys imported from the Philippines. But no human infections were discovered.

Even as one aid worker gets treatment in Atlanta, experts say the virus is unlikely to spread.

“We have a sophisticated infrastructure of isolation and other precautions that would prevent outbreaks here,” said Dr. Pascal James Imperato, of the SUNY Downstate Medical Center.

But Americans should be on the alert, said Dr. Cecilia Rokusek, assistant dean for education, planning and research at Nova Southeastern University.

“We can no longer become complacent to any public health danger anywhere,” she said.

Vaccination Myths Destroyed by Robert Scott Bell on National Radio

In America, if you are not a medical doctor, you are not entitled to have ANY opinion whatsoever about vaccines — you just get them or shut up. Vaccine efficacy is not open for discussion with the scientific or medical “community” and certainly won’t be a discussion on the nightly news during prime time — to give the masses time and reason to actually think about it critically. Vaccines are an American tradition. We all know that America protects the whole world from infectious disease via vaccination, or do they really? What if you found out it was ALL a big myth perpetuated for money, and there was no REAL science to back it up? What if you found out that most infectious disease is spread by vaccinated people and that most of the people who contract infectious disease were also vaccinated for that very disease?

You may want to pay attention to a different kind of “history in the making,” and that is the cold hard fact that no human would ever drink what is found in vaccines, yet they will convince themselves that MSG, mercury, aluminum and GMOs, genetically modified organisms, are worth jabbing into their muscle tissue and their blood, bypassing digestion, thus virtually breaking down the immune system instead of building it up.

Recently, Robert Scott Bell appeared on national radio exposing the vaccine “herding” myth and asking the nation to reconsider how they go about building immunity to infectious diseases that are mostly just a problem for the vaccinated.

If you’re wondering who Robert Scott Bell is, wonder no longer! He is only the host of the fastest two hours of healing information on the radio today. Robert Scott Bell tackles the toughest issues and shows no fear when confronting “corporate” bullies that stand in the way of health freedom. Bell delivers to the public “up to the minute health freedom news” in a format that can be archived, so his fans can listen to shows at their own convenience.

Here is Bell speaking on national talk radio — The Jerry Doyle Show:

“I’ve had medical doctors in my family, some alive some dead, that have changed their minds. I’ve interviewed pediatricians on my show that have come to the similar conclusion that I have — that there are other ways to strengthen the immune system without injecting certain substances. If you read the ingredient label you wouldn’t DRINK — you wouldn’t give that to your child to drink. So, there are legitimate concerns.”

He goes on to say later in the interview: “There’s no scientifically validated ‘peer-review’ literature that can point out that herd immunity is actually real.” (

Medical Collectivism and Herding Immunity

First of all, immunity starts and ends in your gut. If you destroy your good gut flora, you destroy immunity — period. Vaccines contain certain toxic ingredients that, if you read the ingredients list, you would make an informed decision instead of a “sheeple” decision (sheeple are people who act like sheep) — and you wouldn’t want to run with the endangered herd. That’s what they are too — endangered. Plus, genetically modified food destroys good gut bacteria because that’s what pesticides, insecticides and herbicides do — they are poisons that destroy trillions of microorganisms in just minutes. THIS is scientific fact.

So, there ARE legitimate concerns with vaccines. Let’s look closer at the endangered herd of the modern day vaccine “bandwagon.”

Robert Scott Bell says, “It’s all in your gut.” Intestinal mucosa and gut flora protect us from disease. We must reduce the burden we put on good bacteria — not increase it! This needs to be mainstream news, immediately. Natural News enthusiasts tune in and do not miss this information. Robert Scott Bell cuts to the chase. It’s time to listen in to the truth about vaccine research (or lack thereof) and make informed decisions from there! (

“When you have an observation as a parent to view a child that is perfectly developing — normal talking ability, walking ability, revert shortly after vaccination — it doesn’t matter what science you say you have — you can’t convince a parent who has seen something that they didn’t see it. And of course, since the ‘gold standard’ double-blind, placebo-controlled studies are never conducted, in terms of determining safety or efficacy of vaccines, all you can do is get “shouted down” with terms like science, but not with the peer-reviewed literature to support it.”

You don’t have to be a medical doctor to witness firsthand what the toxins in vaccines can do to a perfectly healthy child. You can’t just say “science says…” and explain away these tragedies, time and time again. We need scientific validation of vaccine efficacy and safety, and we must demand it right now.

Vaccination Tyranny in a Maternity Ward: Your Newborn Gets the Hep-B Shot or We Take Him

The vaccination for the hepatitis B virus (HBV) has been traced as the source of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) on hundreds of occasions. There are probably many more. So what do you do if a hospital pediatrician threatens to take your newborn baby from you if you reject the HBV vaccination?

It is often administered just after birth and usually repeated three times over the next six months. Even if it were an effective vaccine, it would be useless unless the mother is infected with hepatitis B, which is purportedly transmitted through injections with shared drug paraphernalia and/or promiscuous sex.

Aliea Bidwell and Ben Gray, who had their baby delivered at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, did not engage in either activity. They had done some really thorough research to decide against allowing the HBV vaccination, a decision which they announced without backlash upon arriving at the hospital.

Maybe they had seen this statement by Erdem I. Cantekin, PhD, of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine, sent as an open letter to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA):

There is no scientific evidence to justify HBV vaccination before the age when those risk factors associated with the HBV transmission (sex, needles, etc) become relevant. Recent risk-benefit analyses show HBV vaccination among children carries one of the largest unjustified risks and substantial financial costs, second only to the new controversial conjugate pneumococcal vaccine.[Emphasis added]

St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham has tolerated parents’ wishes to not vaccinate newborns. And it’s not illegal in Alabama to refuse vaccinations based on medical or religious beliefs. Their son, Aaron, was born naturally, easily and in perfect health per the hospital’s records. Several family members, including grandparents, had arrived to see the latest addition to their extended family.

When Dr. Terry M. Bierd, MD, arrived as a staff pediatrician at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, some hospital staffers were concerned with how she disregarded vaccination refusals. After noticing that neither parent had been tested for hepatitis B recently, Dr. Bierd decided to overrule the parents’ HBV vaccination refusal by invoking “doctor discretion” to override the parents’ decision.

Bierd had at first told Aaron’s parents and other family members that Alabama state law required thevaccination. But one of Aaron’s grandparents discovered this was not so upon calling a friend who was a judge.

Then Bierd asserted that doctor discretion allowed her to force the HBV vaccine. She threatened to seize their newborn son, Aaron, and have Child Protective Services (CPS) take him.

She announced this three times to Aliea and Ben while in the room with baby Aaron. The second announcement came boldly with 12 other family members visiting, all of whom considered the doctor’s announcements as blackmail. Bierd gave them an ultimatum: Allow us to vaccinate Aaron with the HBV vaccine by tonight (Friday) or he’ll be taken away and vaccinated anyway. Then you can try to get him back after the weekend.

What does one do when, just after birthing, a hospital staff pediatrician control freak tells a family that the baby will be gone, at least for the weekend, and that they can try to get him back after that weekend if the HBV shot isn’t administered by 9 PM of the same day of his birth? The young, intimidated parents were forced to sign a consent form relieving the hospital and its staff of all liability.

Having kids in this world has become very difficult. Home delivery and homeschooling may be the only ways to avoid at least the vaccination aspect of medical tyranny imposed on children.

Unvaccinated Children LESS Prone to Disease: Study

A little-known study out of New Zealand that was published back in 1992 makes a strong case for the fact that unvaccinated children are generally healthier and less prone to disease than vaccinated children. Contrary to what is popularly assumed about vaccines — that they protect kids by building immunity that otherwise would not exist — this research shows that vaccinated children are actually much more likely to suffer from chronic diseases like asthma, eczema, tonsillitis and a host of other health conditions, compared to their unvaccinated peers.

An excerpt from the study linked explains the research, which was conducted by the Immunization Awareness Society. Questionnaires were distributed to members of the group, their friends and colleagues, and others, asking about vaccination status and things like whether or not they breastfed their children, what they fed them, and which diseases were present. More than 245 families responded to the survey, providing data on 495 total children.

Of this number, 226 of the children had been vaccinated in accordance with government recommendations, while the remaining 269 were vaccine-free. Ages of participants ranged from just two weeks old to 46 years old. And 81 of the participating families also had both vaccinated and unvaccinated children, offering an even more direct comparison within households of potential variances in disease rates and frequency.

“Respondents were asked to provide the year of birth, gender, vaccinations received, whether or not the child suffered from a range of chronic conditions (asthma, eczema, ear infections/glue ear, recurring tonsillitis, hyperactivity, diabetes and epilepsy) whether or not he or she had needed grommets, had had a tonsillectomy, or were slow to develop motor skills (walking, crawling, sitting-up etc.),” wrote Sue Claridge in a report on the study.

“Parents also provided information on breastfeeding and bottle feeding and when a child was weaned if breastfed,” she added.

No cases of epilepsy observed among unvaccinated children

Interestingly, it was discovered based on analysis of this data that 92 percent of children who required a tonsillectomy operation for tonsillitis had been vaccinated for measles, presumably with the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR. Vaccinated children were also much more prone to developing conditions like asthma, ear infections and even motor skill impairment.

Eczema rates among vaccinated children were found to be more than twice that of unvaccinated children, for instance, while the rate of hyperactivity among vaccinated children was almost four-fold that of unvaccinated children. Vaccinated children were also found to be more than four times more likely to develop ear infections than unvaccinated children, while asthma rates in the vaccinated group were more than five times higher than the unvaccinated group.

The real kicker, though, was the complete absence of epilepsy among unvaccinated children. While the overall sample size from each group was admittedly small, with the unvaccinated group being larger, not a single case of epilepsy was observed in an unvaccinated child, while four of the vaccinated children were found to have the condition. None of the unvaccinated children required tonsillectomies, either, while a shocking 12 of the vaccinated children did.

“While this was a very limited study, particularly in terms of the numbers of unvaccinated children that were involved and the range of chronic conditions investigated, it provides solid scientific evidence in support of considerable anecdotal evidence that unvaccinated children are healthier than their vaccinated peers,” Claridge wrote in conclusion.
