Researchers from Penn State’s college of medicine and Yale’s school of medicine have discovered that the timing of when vaccines are given may be related to major brain disorders.
Using insurance data for children ages 6-15, which dated back 5 years, the researchers learned that kids vaccinated within 3 to 12 months of the study were more likely to have one of many neuropsychiatric disorders. The results were accomplished by comparing the vaccinated with the unvaccinated within the same parameters.
The study, which was put on full display in an article written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in The Liberty Beacon, implies that heavy vaccinating of young people could stimulate brain disorders and immune system damage. The peer-reviewed study was published in Frontiers in Psychiatry’s January 19th issue.
Almost 100,000 children’s data was used in the research.The neurological disorders that were typically found were attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorder, anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and bipolar disorder.
Per Kennedy Jr.
This was a well-designed, tightly controlled study. Control subjects without brain disorders were matched with the subjects by age, geographic location and gender.
As expected, broken bones and open wounds showed no significant association with vaccinations.
New cases of major depression, bipolar disorder or ADHD also showed no significant association with vaccinations.
However, children who had been vaccinated were 80 percent more likely to be diagnosed with anorexia and 25 percent more likely to be diagnosed with OCD than their non-vaccinated counterparts. Vaccinated children were also more likely to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and with tics compared to the controls.
In a carefully worded conclusion, the researchers caution making too much of these results while also urging further investigation. “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 write. “These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions.”
Kennedy Jr. goes on to clarify that in this case, correlation does not always mean causation. However, looking into individual and combination vaccines would seem an urgent matter in light of these findings.
