“[The studies on vaccines] need to be methodologically sound. What you need to have if you really want to have the answer is you need to have three groups of children… The children who get the federally recommended schedule. You could have a smaller group that get fewer vaccines. Go back to, for example, the 80s schedule… Dtap, MMR, and polio. And then a smaller group, completely unvaccinated.
Now, they say they can’t do that because it’s unethical to withhold any recommended vaccines from children. Well, of course then you’re never going to get the answer, right? Which is what, they don’t want the answer.
So, what you have to do is not just look for only morbidity outcomes. You can’t just observe. You have to do mechanism work. You have to take immune panels. You have to take urinalysis. You have to do EEGs. You’ve got to measure when there are pathological changes that occur in these three groups of children. Chromosomal damage as well, you’d need to measure how much chromosomal damage is done. You’d have your answer, probably, within five years… in terms of how many of them.
You’d have your answer in a couple of years in terms of how many learning disabilities, ADHD, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It would have to be a big study. But isn’t it worth it to find out before we add more and more vaccines to the schedule?”
