New study finds link between child vaccination and autism – CENSORED

The much-maligned anti-vaccine movement is fueled, in good part, by parents’ suspicion that childhood vaccination causes autism.
The clinical term is Autism Spectrum Disorder: a developmental disability that ranges from mild disabilities of speech and language impairments, to serious developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy and autism.
Indeed, the statistical data confirm that autism is on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • In 2000, 1 in 150 children were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  • In 2012, the number of children with ASD increased to 1 in 68.
  • ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys (1 in 42) than among girls (1 in 189).

Now, a new study of 666 home-schooled children has confirmed that there is an association between childhood vaccination and autism.
The study is a survey (questionnaire) of 415 mothers who are members of home-school organizations in 4 states: Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon. The mothers were asked whether their children had been vaccinated, and about the children’s health conditions. Among the health conditions are neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability.
The study found a “significant association” between vaccination and autism. (A statistically significant association means the probability that the association occurred by chance is extremely unlikely.) The study also found that the association between vaccination and autism is compounded if the child is male and/or preterm, i.e., born prematurely at fewer than 37 weeks gestational age.
The study was conducted by a research team of four, comprised of:

  1. Dr. Anthony R. Mawson, Professor at the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health, Jackson State University (JSU).
  2. Dr. Brian D. Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute, an organization in Salem, Oregon which conducts homeschooling research, and publishes the journal Home School Research.
  3. Dr. Azad R. Bhuiyan, Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, JSU.
  4. Binu Jacob, a former graduate student at JSU.

Mawson, et al., published their research findings in an article titled “Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports,” in a 2016 issue of the journal, Frontiers in Public Health 4:270 (2016).
Frontiers in Public Health describes itself as an open access “peer-reviewed journal aimed at the scientific community interested in the broad area of public health.” The journal’s editorial board is comprised of:

  • Joav Merrick, Health Services, Division for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Ministry of Social Affairs, Jerusalem, Israel. Merrick is the journal’s main editor. His title is “Field Chief Editor”.
  • Rustam Aminov, Technical University of Denmark
  • Ross Bailie, University of Sidney, Australia
  • Nina Bhardwaj, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY
  • John B. F. de Wit, University of New South Wales, Sidney, Australia
  • Jimmy Thomas Efird, East Carolina University, Greenville

But if you go to the article’s link (https://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270), you will not find it. Instead, you ‘ll get this message:

Error 412
The requested content is not yet available.
Article 231518 is not yet publicly available.

That means the journal pulled the article, which, unless it was for a legitimate reason (e.g., research errors), is a form of post-publication censorship.
Fortunately, Rich Winkel of Thought Crime Radio found the article on Google Cache: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:3ulOESkkTPAJ:journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

I tried to access the article on Google Cache, but got another Error message:

404. That’s an error.
The requested URL /search?q=cache:3ulOESkkTPAJ:journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

That means the article has been scrubbed from even Google Cache!
But Winkel did manage to capture the article’s Abstract before it was scrubbed:

ABSTRACT
Background: Vaccinations have prevented millions of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among US children. Yet the long-term health outcomes of the routine vaccination program remain unknown. Studies have been recommended by the Institute of Medicine to address this question.
Specific Aims: To compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children on a broad range of health outcomes, and to determine whether an association found between vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), if any, remains significant after adjustment for other measured factors.
Design: A cross-sectional survey of mothers of children educated at home.
Methods: Homeschool organizations in four states (Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon) were asked to forward an email to their members, requesting mothers to complete an anonymous online questionnaire on the vaccination status and health outcomes of their biological children ages 6 to 12.
Results: A total of 415 mothers provided data on 666 children, of which 261 (39%) were unvaccinated. Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and NDDs (defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability). After adjustment, the factors that remained significantly associated with NDD were vaccination (OR 3.1, 95% CI: 1.4, 6.8), male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.3), and preterm birth (OR 5.0, 95% CI: 2.3, 11.6). In a final adjusted model, vaccination but not preterm birth remained associated with NDD, while the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination was associated with a 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8, 15.5).
Conclusions: In this study based on mothers’ reports, the vaccinated had a higher rate of allergies and NDD than the unvaccinated. Vaccination, but not preterm birth, remained significantly associated with NDD after controlling for other factors. However, preterm birth combined with vaccination was associated with an apparent synergistic increase in the odds of NDD. Further research involving larger, independent samples is needed to verify and understand these unexpected findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines on children’s health.

Needless to say, the scrubbing from a journal as well as from Google Cache of an already-published article that confirms parents’ suspicion that vaccines are linked to autism, will only fuel more conspiracy talk.
Our skepticism concerning the article’s scrubbing has good reasons given the credentials of the study’s lead author and the fact that the article was approved for publication by an editor and two peer reviewers.

The lead author of the study is Dr. Anthony Mawson, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in England and received his Ph.D. in epidemiology from Tulane University. Mawson is currently a Visiting Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the School of Public Health in Jackson State University (JSU). He is a well-published scientist with 59 publications in various journals:

  • For Mawson’s page at JSU, click here.
  • For Mawson’s cv (or resume), click here. According to his cv, Mawson has submitted a co-authored article (with Brian D. Ray and A. Bhuiyan, the same co-authors of the now-scrubbed Frontiers in Public Health article), provisionally titled “Vaccination and health outcomes,” to BMC: Health Services Research, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal.

UPDATE (Dec. 6, 2016):

My undertanding is that since the journal Frontiers in Public Health had accepted Mawson et al.‘s paper, it should be published and subjected to the usual process of public review and replication. Instead, the journal’s Chief Editor withdrew the paper because of “numerous complaints” based simply on the paper’s Abstract.
Please contact the journal’s Editorial Office and ask for the paper to be published. Here’s the email address:

publichealth.editorial.office@frontiersin.org

Update (May 10, 2017):

Thanks to reader RP, here’s Dr. Mawson’s censored article in its entirety.
Also, Mawson’s study did find a publication outlet — a 2017 issue of the Journal of Translational Science, 2017. See “Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children“.
I recommend you read TruthAlert’s well-reasoned and well-sourced post, “Some thoughts on the globalist agenda, vaccines and population control“.

Why would ANYONE put a toxic substance or a derivative of a toxic substance in ANYTHING injected under the skin? It really makes ZERO sense. Read the list of ingredients in a vaccine- you wouldn’t FEED a teaspoon of that “crap cocktail” to a baby- but you let someone inject that under you day old baby’s skin? More people read consumer reports to figure out the best Blu-Ray player to buy than they do to research vaccines. The medical community refuses to see a direct and 100% correlation so they ignore the facts. Obviously not everyone has reactions to all… Read more »

The easiest way to “dumb down” a society. In WA, we just had an outbreak of mumps–in VACCINATED children. I couldn’t believe they reported that bit of info.

Ever since my granddaughter was born (just over a year ago) I cringe and have fear when she is due for her vaccinations. I have read that many have suspected for some time that it was (is?) the preservative thimerosal in the vaccines that was the culprit. No wonder – it contains mercury – a known toxin! It has since been phased out of most vaccines. When I needed to get a booster of the DTap (or was it Tdap?) for health safety purposes when I’m around my granddaughter, I specifically asked for a dose that did NOT contain the… Read more »

It might have not been a good study or found something that needed to be examined more, but let’s not deal with a “hot button” topic all together and just delete the article without saying anything. (Yeah, that’s really good for free scientific inquiry… ) It’s already known offspring (especially preterm boys) have a higher incidence of autism if their mothers: * Get exposed to organochlorides (PCBs, DDT, chlordane, etc.) during pregnancy. * Have reactions to allergens during pregnancy. * Get a flu shot (though not the flu itself) during their first trimester (and not later either). * Used acetaminophen… Read more »

666 children? Is that just a coincidence, or a signifier of who is behind mandating vaccinations on children against the wishes of their parents?

There’s a great link over at educateyourself.org too. It’s the wording that gets the anti vaxxers in trouble. Vaccines don’t cause autism they cause brain damage and that’s what causes a whole assortment of symptoms.

I find it hard to believe that in today’s age- a peanut butter sandwich can cause an allergic reaction that can be deadly – yet MD’s refuse to see the Autism link in Vaccines?

For those interested in autism, look into the B-12 deficiency link, too. It’s an interesting one.

The fact that parents are forced to inject this poisonous substance into their babies just shows the hold that Big Pharma has on our society. It is pure evil.

“Diet, injections and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so.”

Not surprised.
Who knows what they put in those syringes?
And that includes flu shots, and a whole bunch of other injections that goobermint goons recommend.
After all, “It’s for the children.”
Right.
So was thalidomide.

That's right, Gary.

Well Doc, there’s a couple men from the government here to see you. They want you to take down any mention of this article. And once that’s done, they want you, and all your readers to take a look at that flashy thing.

THE MOST “VACCINATED” AND “GMO’ED” COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! AND HALF OF OUR CHILDREN ARE SICK EVERY DAY, 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK (scientific study below)! Doc Blake Today, half of all U.S. children are chronically sick with Asthma, Allergies, learning disabilities and other illnesses such as Autism and Epilepsy. That’s 32 million U.S. children who are sick 24 hours a day, every day! —Hardly surprising since every child receives over 70 vaccinations, some of them within days of being born. One of the stupidest, and more harmful is the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). A joke… Read more »

No thanks to my alma mater, which shall remain unnamed, for never telling me anything about autism over 30 years ago. No one in teaching told me about this. I was not prepared to deal with this, as no one was.
Not to belabor the point, but here is another EXTINCTION PROTOCOL: If they can’t kill us outright, they will try to make us want to be dead.
President Trump needs to build the Wall. He also must go after Big Pharma.

There is another thing with these “modern parents”. They won’t let a kid get dirty for more a second. How is a kid ever going to develop an immune system if it lives in a World of Wet-Wipes? Think about it. I’ll bet everyone knows a kid with a Hover-Mother with a purse full of wet wipes, that by the time they reached their teens they got sick from anything & everything. An ant bite would send them to the Emergency Room. Used to be if you got a scrap or cut, let the dog lick it. If it stops… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for your scrupulous and scholarly presentation of the issues at hand. Perhaps the paper will be published again given the information immediately set forth above. This time, perhaps, it will be published and will not be pulled.

I don’t think you understand the nature of Caching, even GoogleCache, and that is that it is temporary. Unless somebody downloads it & reposts it on their own website, or saves a snapshot to Archive.is or Archive.org, it is lost. Never never rely on “caching”, because it will only be overwritten by the next iteration of of the content, in this case the 412 error.
Lucky for us, somebody DID archive the whole first page of it, from Abstract to Conclusion, here: https://archive.is/L6fpe
