(NaturalNews) A little-known study out of New Zealand that was published back in 1992 makes a strong case for the fact that unvaccinated children are generally healthier and less prone to disease than vaccinated children. Contrary to what is popularly assumed about vaccines -- that they protect kids by building immunity that otherwise would not exist -- this research shows that vaccinated children are actually much more likely to suffer from chronic diseases like asthma, eczema, tonsillitis and a host of other health conditions, compared to their unvaccinated peers.

An excerpt from the study linked through explains the research, which was conducted by the Immunization Awareness Society. Questionnaires were distributed to members of the group, their friends and colleagues, and others, asking about vaccination status and things like whether or not they breastfed their children, what they fed them, and which diseases were present. More than 245 families responded to the survey, providing data on 495 total children.

Of this number, 226 of the children had been vaccinated in accordance with government recommendations, while the remaining 269 were vaccine-free. Ages of participants ranged from just two weeks old to 46 years old. And 81 of the participating families also had both vaccinated and unvaccinated children, offering an even more direct comparison within households of potential variances in disease rates and frequency.

"Respondents were asked to provide the year of birth, gender, vaccinations received, whether or not the child suffered from a range of chronic conditions (asthma, eczema, ear infections/glue ear, recurring tonsillitis, hyperactivity, diabetes and epilepsy) whether or not he or she had needed grommets, had had a tonsillectomy, or were slow to develop motor skills (walking, crawling, sitting-up etc.)," wrote Sue Claridge in a report on the study.

"Parents also provided information on breastfeeding and bottle feeding and when a child was weaned if breastfed," she added.

No cases of epilepsy observed among unvaccinated children

Interestingly, it was discovered based on analysis of this data that 92 percent of children who required a tonsillectomy operation for tonsillitis had been vaccinated for measles, presumably with the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR. Vaccinated children were also much more prone to developing conditions like asthma, ear infections and even motor skill impairment.

Eczema rates among vaccinated children were found to be more than twice that of unvaccinated children, for instance, while the rate of hyperactivity among vaccinated children was almost four-fold that of unvaccinated children. Vaccinated children were also found to be more than four times more likely to develop ear infections than unvaccinated children, while asthma rates in the vaccinated group were more than five times higher than the unvaccinated group.

The real kicker, though, was the complete absence of epilepsy among unvaccinated children. While the overall sample size from each group was admittedly small, with the unvaccinated group being larger, not a single case of epilepsy was observed in an unvaccinated child, while four of the vaccinated children were found to have the condition. None of the unvaccinated children required tonsillectomies, either, while a shocking 12 of the vaccinated children did.

"While this was a very limited study, particularly in terms of the numbers of unvaccinated children that were involved and the range of chronic conditions investigated, it provides solid scientific evidence in support of considerable anecdotal evidence that unvaccinated children are healthier than their vaccinated peers," Claridge wrote in conclusion.
