Researchers are finding considerable differences in the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. The controversy has continued for decades and predates the now debunked study by Andrew Wakefield that claimed a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.
However, current research by Dr. David Brownstein and Natalie Campbell looked at children from the same family. Some were vaccinated and some were unvaccinated. The study took into account the lifestyle and dynamics of each family, including diets, vaccination schedules, their choice to stop vaccinating, and the health of each child. The lengthy study followed them beginning when they were young children into the adulthoods. In some cases, unvaccinated individuals had to get vaccinated as adults due to the profession, and this produced some interesting results.
Campbell insists that she is pro-vaccine.
“I would rather have almost anything to not have rabies. The argument really is not pro and anti, pro and anti is really just black and white and there is not a lot of room for compromise. The real argument is choice. You could delay them, get some, tetanus only, choose some, or choose none. Consider the individual child. If you’re a newborn consider if you are going to have safe sex or use dirty needles. On the other hand if he’s a teenager and practicing unsafe sex or using dirty needles, maybe you should get him the Hep. B vaccine.”
Campbell presented her findings in her talk “Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children and Chronic Disease,” at the Weston A. Price Conference in Allen, Texas (November 15, 2019). The findings were also published in the Wise Traditions Journal, Winter 2018.
