@Regrann from @freedom_faction - In recent years, the glaring spotlight of #skepticism has been turned to the topic of #vaccines, bitterly dividing parents and giving doctors of #modernmedicine conniption fits — but no matter where you stand on vaccinations, the fact two groundbreaking, scientific, peer-reviewed studies painting inoculations in not-so favorable light have vanished from the Internet is cause for concern.
Originally, the study, titled, “Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12- year old U.S. children,” was published in Open Access Text.
Until, that is, Open Access Text removed it and a second, similar study by the same authors from their archives without explanation. In fact, @TheFreeThoughtProject attempted to contact Open Access Text on multiple occasions for an explanation on the abrupt decision to pull the studies — but, as of publishing, had yet to receive a response.
Lead author Anthony R. Mawson, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Jackson State University’s School of Public Health, establishes that his team takes no issue with vaccinations, in their own right, stating in the study’s introduction, “Vaccines are among the greatest achievements of biomedical science and one of the most effective public health interventions of the 20th century. Among U.S. children born between 1995 and 2013, vaccination is estimated to have prevented 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations and 732,000 premature deaths, with overall cost savings of $1.38 trillion. About 95% of U.S. children of kindergarten age receive all of the recommended vaccines as a requirement for school and daycare attendance, aimed at preventing the occurrence and spread of targeted infectious diseases. Advances in biotechnology are contributing to the development of new vaccines for widespread use.” Mawson responded by email to The Free Thought Project’s request for a comment concerning the studies’ abrupt disappearance, stating only, “I am forwarding your inquiry to our funding agency for comment. I am not at liberty to provide details at this moment.”?🏾 #PopulationControl - #regrann
