This study dealt with the entire population of 0-3 year olds, all of the first graders of the elementary school and all of the first year junior high school children on the Island of Kodushima, Tokyo Japan.
RESULTS: Among the children aged 0-3 who received DPT vaccinations, 25.6% suffered from bronchial asthma. This ratio was significantly higher than the 2.3% of children who suffered from bronchial asthma that had not received a DPT vaccination. The children who were vaccinated experienced a ten-fold increase in asthma!
This was also the case concerning dermatitis. In addition, over 50% of the children who were vaccinated experienced asthma, rashes, or chronic runny nose, whereas less than 10% of the non-vaccinated groups experienced these complications.
FINDINGS: “From these results, we conclude that DPT vaccination has some effect in the promotion of atopic disorders.”
Become informed. A great source of information is the National Vaccine Information Center, www.909shot.com. For some vaccines, the risk is greater than the reward. We are not anti-vaccine, we support informed consent. We want the parent to gain enough information on what is best for their child so that they can make an informed decision.
