A peer-reviewed study in the journal SAGE Open Medicine details the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children from three pediatric practices in the U.S. and found that unvaccinated children were definitely healthier than vaccinated children. The study was based on medical records of over 2000 children in these pediatric practices and born between November 2005 and June 2015. Results show that vaccination before one year of age led to significantly increased odds of medical diagnoses of developmental delays, asthma and ear infections. In a separate analysis, based on the number of vaccines received by one year of age, children receiving more vaccines were more likely to be diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorders compared to those who received no vaccines within the same timeframe. Children vaccinated prior to six months of age showed significant risks of each of the disorders studied as compared to unvaccinated children in the same timeframe. Children’s Health Defense (CHD) has assembled nearly 60 studies that find vaccinated kids to be far sicker than their unvaccinated peers. CHD is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the recent epidemic of chronic health conditions affecting 54% of children.

The immune system is highly impacted by the nerve system through the interconnection between the autonomic portion of the nervous system and the endocrine system. This link between the spine and the immune system also lines up with a study by Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Inst. and professor of medicine at New York Univ. Dr. Pero measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases. His initial 3-yr study was of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more. The chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than those who had not received chiropractic care, and they had 400% greater immune competence than those people with cancer and other serious diseases. The immune system’s superiority of those under chiropractic care did not appear to diminish with age. Dr. Pero stated: “When applied in a clinical framework, I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important. We have never seen such a positive improvement in a group.”
