Vaccinations and Asthma
“Is infant immunization a risk factor for childhood asthma or allergy.”
This study published in Epidemiology 1997 discusses reports by researchers that show that vaccinated children have a higher incidence of asthma (and diabetes) than do unvaccinated children.
Science News reports that one such study by researchers at the Wellington School of Medicine in New Zealand found that unvaccinated New Zealand children report fewer cases of asthma than vaccinated children.
In another study by New Zealand researchers published in the November 1997 Epidemiology researchers analysed the health of 1,265 people born in 1977. Of these, 23 didn’t get any childhood vaccinations and none of them suffered childhood asthma. Among the 1,242 who were vaccinated, more than 23 percent later had episodes of asthma.
In a 1994 survey of 446 British children, 91 received no vaccinations in early childhood. Only one child out of this 91 got asthma. About 11 percent of the other 355 children who had been vaccinated with pertussis and other vaccines developed asthma.

This study clearly demonstrates one of the risks associated with vaccinating your child… an increased risk of asthma.
