More transparency on vaccines, vaccinations and vaccine injuries


The comparison of vaccinated verses unvaccinated


Unfortunately, there are not very many studies in today’s literature that compare the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. However, the few do indicate that unvaccinated children suffer far less in today's "normal" diseases such as eczema, asthma, ADHD, etc., as vaccinated children. Within the existing studies one must also consider that parents, who do not vaccinate their children, often use alternative therapies such as homeopathy.


British Cohort Study

(McKeever et al.: Vaccination and Allergic Disease: A Birth Cohort Study“, June 2004, Vol 94, No. 6, American Journal of Public Health)

There were a total of over 30,000 children with DPPT (diphtheria, polio, pertussis whom were vaccinated against whooping cough, tetanus), compared with non-vaccinated children, the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella were vaccinated), which were non-vaccinated. Results: Increased risk of allergy towards vaccination A child which has been vaccinated against DPPT averages per life year, a risk of 5.04% of allergic asthma. In contrast to a child which has not been vaccinated against DPPT only has a 0.36% risk of asthma.



Salzburger Study


of 1004 unvaccinated children, had

Asthma, 0% (8-12% in the normal population)

A-topic dermatitis 1.2% (10-20% in the normal population)

Allergies 3% (25% in the normal population)

ADHD 0.79% (5-10%) in children


detailed results see below:




Longterm Study in Guinea-Bissau (1 Kristensen I, Aaby P, Jensen H.:“Routine vaccinations and child survival: follow up study in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa”, BMJ 2000; 321: 1435–41


The children of 15,000 mothers were observed from 1990 to 1996 for 5 years.


Result: the death rate in vaccinated children against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough is twice as high as the unvaccinated children (10.5% versus 4.7%).



New Zealand Survey (1992) (

The study involved 254 children. In which 133 children were vaccinated and 121 remained unvaccinated.

To this, comes the following information:


In Austria there is no accurate / recent data, as to how many children suffer from the common, among the above-described, diseases. The following statistics were available to me, and compared against the unvaccinated children in our questionnaire, which are available in %:


Every 10th Child in Salzburg has asthma equating 10% -- whereas unvaccinated children equate 0%

Every 4th People in Austria has an allergy equating 25% -- whereas unvaccinated children equate 3%

Every 10th School child suffers from a partial power failure (POS) equating 10% - 0.09% of unvaccinated children where hyperactivity included which equates 0.79%

Whether vaccinations symptoms are in connection with above problem areas, is not clear. Surely they are not the sole cause. Pregnancy, childbirth, nutrition, psychology, family circumstances, etc. influence the body in different ways.

Special cases:

An unvaccinated child died of SIDS at 5 months.
One mother became ill, despite of her age (41 years) due to vaccination with rubella.
A father was about a year before the birth of his child, repeatedly injected with genetically engineered vaccines, his daughter has developmental chromosomal delay. The older daughter is developing normally.
An unvaccinated child had received a passive tetanus vaccination, with no impairment of health.


The letter of a mother whose daughter was born into our world with Down syndrome: 'Truly, I was convinced when I registered my daughter in the disabled community, (...)this done for early intervention, parents were invited to parental evening discussions. Parents whose children were not disabled from birth, can not understand where and why their children were suddenly disabled. This scared me and is the cause of my decision not to vaccinate my children, for sure. "


Thank you to all parents who have participated in our survey!


Thanks also to all those who so eagerly distributed the survey.

Due to the request of some parents, I would like to stress once again:

I know that the questionnaire covers only a small area of health of the non-vaccinated children. Circumstances of birth, breastfeeding, nutrition, mental attitude, taking antibiotics, etc. are not included. This is mainly due to the questionnaire, it does not exceed one page, since it is voluntarily done and without pay, it had to be copied over and over and distributed by dedicated parents. In addition, in recent years different aspects of the questionnaire in regards to non-vaccination had been brought forth to me, which I had not really thought of before. One of them would be the question of whether non-vaccinated children often show signs of giftedness compared to the vaccinated and if so, whether this really comes from the non-vaccination, or not. It has however been repeatedly emphasized in the questionnaires that the non-vaccinated children are highly advanced, more mentally developed.
