In the largest study of its kind, researchers in Denmark compared a group of 625,842 vaccinated children with 31,619 unvaccinated children. The unvaccinated children were those that had not received the MMR vaccination. Whereas the vaccinated children had received the MMR vaccination. They concluded that the MMR vaccine did not cause any appreciable difference in the rate of autism between the groups. That is how it was portrayed to the public. But let us look at that study a little closer.
The compared two groups of vaccinated children. It compared a group that received a single vaccine against five diseases against another group that received that same vaccine plus another vaccine against three diseases. In Denmark, that single vaccine against five diseases is given four times at intervals of 3 months of age, 5 months of age, 12 months of age, and 5 years of age. The second vaccine is given twice, at 15 months old and again at 4 years old. The single vaccine group received the diphtheria, acellular pertussis, tetanus, inactivated poliovirus, and Haemophilus influenza type b (a.k.a., DtaP-IPV/Hib) vaccine. The double vaccine group received the additional vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).
The researchers were careful to label the unvaccinated group “MMR-unvacciated” and the vaccinated group “MMR-vaccinated.” The reason for that nomenclature was that the MMR-unvaccinated group was only not vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. The unvaccinated group was not truly unvaccinated. 26,890 of the 31,619 children in the “MMR-unvaccinated” group received other vaccinations. Thus, more than 85% of the children labeled as “MMR-unvaccinated” received vaccinations. They received diphtheria, acellular pertussis, tetanus, inactivated poliovirus, and Haemophilus influenza type b vaccines (a.k.a., DtaP-IPV/Hib). Any one of those vaccines could cause an increase in autism in the “MMR-unvaccinated” group. And certainly, the cumulative effect of those seriatim vaccinations on a young child could be devastating to a child’s undeveloped immune system. The only vaccine missed by the unvaccinated group was the MMR vaccine. The high numbers of autism sufferers in the MMR-unvaccinated group would then be compared to the MMR-vaccinated group and allow the researchers to claim that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism because the rate of autism would be similar. It was a rigged study.
The Denmark study authors concluded:
The study strongly supports that MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, does not trigger autism in susceptible children, and is not associated with clustering of autism cases after vaccination.
That conclusion in the Denmark study can be likened to a study of the intoxicating properties of rum. In our hypothetical rum study, we will have 10 persons consume a shot of vodka, a shot of whiskey, a shot of gin, a shot of tequila, and a shot of rum, and another 10 persons will consume all of those shots of alcoholic beverages but not the shot of rum. Both groups of persons (all 20) end up drunk. Thus, just as do the vaccine researchers, we can conclude that rum could not have caused the drunkenness because both the 10 persons who drank rum and the 10 persons who did not drink rum got drunk. We can then make a public announcement that our study proves that rum is not an intoxicating liquor. Those are the kinds of shenanigans being pulled by “scientists” portraying dangerous vaccines as safe to the public.
And so the non-MMR group, being not truly an unvaccinated group, is presenting a higher autism number than would be the case for a truly unvaccinated group. When looking at a study that truly compares a vaccinated group vs. an unvaccinated group the results are significant. A recent study that compared truly unvaccinated children with vaccinated children revealed that vaccinated children had 4.7 times greater diagnoses of autism.
Notably, the researchers tried to address the elephant in the room, but they engaged in obfuscation in order to sweep under the rug their refusal to compare truly unvaccinated children with vaccinated children. The researchers acknowledged that “[a] general criticism of observational vaccine effect studies is that they do not include a completely unvaccinated group of children.”
They should have compared the purely unvaccinated group against a vaccinated group. But they did not do that; although they were in a position to do so. They bent over backward at every turn in the study to ensure that they were always comparing two groups of vaccinated children. Indeed, their major outcome involved a comparison between a group 85% of which received five vaccines to a group receiving six vaccines. The only difference in the groups was that the sixth vaccine was the MMR. But the group receiving the five vaccines was labeled as being “unvaccinated.” The study was rigged.
The news media that announced the study results as proof that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism did not also inform the public about the behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the researchers. Instead, the mainstream media misinforms the public that “[t]here’s strong new evidence that a common childhood vaccine is safe.” They trumpet statements of the co-author of the Denmark study, Anders Hviid, who stated that he “hopes the findings will reassure parents. Parents should not avoid vaccinating their children for fear of autism.” That was the objective of the study at its outset. Mission accomplished.
