Study shows vaccines harm underweight newborns; researchers conclusively deny their own science

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) A recent study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics found that extremely low-birth-weight infants (ELBW) -- that is, babies who are born with a birth weight of less than two pounds, three ounces -- have a significantly higher risk of suffering severe adverse events or dying after being vaccinated. But curiously, the same paper that admits this also claims that it doesn't admit this, encouraging doctors to jab underweight babies as normal!

Entitled "Adverse Events After Routine Immunization of Extremely Low-Birth-Weight Infants," the study looked at nearly 14,000 ELBW infants born at 28 weeks' gestation. Each of the babies was given at least one vaccination between the ages of 53 and 110 days, and researchers from the Duke University School of Medicine in North Carolina, the Greenville Hospital System in South Carolina, and the Pediatrix-Obstetrix Center for Research and Education in Florida evaluated the number of adverse events and deaths that resulted.

The team looked specifically at rates of sepsis evaluation post-vaccination, as well as how vaccines affect underweight babies' need for respiratory support, intubation, seizures and death. Here's what they found:
"Immunization of extremely low-birth-weight (ELBW) infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is associated with adverse events, including fever and apnea or bradycardia, in the immediate postimmunization period," wrote the authors. "These adverse events present a diagnostic dilemma for physicians, leading to the potential for immunization delay and sepsis evaluations."

Vaccination is dangerous for ELBW babies but parents should jab them anyway, claim deranged researchers

One might assume that such findings would prompt the medical community to take a closer look at vaccine safety, particularly in babies who are born at less than one-third the average birth weight. But why would they when science itself isn't even honest about the repercussions of vaccination, denying that it comes with any risks at all?

After admitting that vaccinating ELBW babies increases the risk of seizures, sepsis and death, this is what the authors of the JAMA Pediatrics had to say in conclusion:

"Our findings provide no evidence to suggest that physicians should not use combination vaccines in ELBW infants."

Wait, what? Didn't they just say that ELBW infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) have an increased risk of adverse events from vaccination? The sentence just before the one above admits that vaccinations are harmful to ELBW babies, and yet immediately after admitting this researchers say not to worry -- vaccines aren't harmful!

Duke University, Greenville Hospital System and the Pediatrix Medical Group all appear to be aligned with vaccine interests, so it's not all that surprising that scientists from these organizations have decided to deny the findings of their own study and declare vaccines to be safe for underweight babies. But parents of ELBW babies deserve to know the truth.
