Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Studies Back Online


From JB Handley:

What if a study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children was published, removed, republished in a different journal, removed again because of online misinformation, and then republished (today) after the misinformation was cleared up? Well, then you’d have the first study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children officially online and in a journal (as of this moment).

If you’re confused, you’re not alone. And just to clarify: this study has NEVER been retracted, only removed by two journals, and re-published by the second one…Starting to think this is the study that just “won’t go away!”

And, if that’s not confusing enough, please note there are actually TWO separate studies on unvaccinated children in the same journal. The second one is linked in my first comment, and it concerns premature infants.


When the papers were first removed, one notoriously dishonest blogger named David Gorski (a.k.a :”Orac”) had nuclear organism. He also wanted to make very clear that he learned about the initial deletion of papers from yours truly, using a new nickname he has coined:

So what did I overlook? Well, thanks to The Gnat (and if you don’t know who The Gnat is, just look at the comments of yesterday’s post) I realized that I missed half the fail. Here’s what I mean:

Yes, that’s the conspiracy crank site InfoWars, and yes InfoWars is eating this study up, interviewing Celeste McGovern, who is promoted as a “vaccine expert.” I had never heard of her before, but it turns out that she writes for Claire Dwoskin’s Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), one of the two antivaccine groups that funded Mawson’s study. (The other was Generation Rescue.) As expected, she is antivaccine to the core.

What I learned, though, from following The Gnat’s link is that there was a second paper published in the very same bottom-feeding predatory open access journal by Mawson using the very same survey dataset, Preterm birth, vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders: a cross-sectional study of 6- to 12-year-old vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Clearly, Mawson believes in the concept of “minimal publishable unit” (or MPU, as we call it) in which you divide the data into as many papers as you can and still get manage to get published, hence his publishing two papers instead of one.

Amusingly, when I clicked on that link, I got a “not found” error message, but as of yesterday the paper was still in Google Cache, and I saved a copy for your edification. [LINK] This led me to check the link to the other paper, and guess what? It was gone yesterday, too

Yet after the studies re-appeared today, all Gorski said was this:

The first study appears to be back on the OAT website…

Poor Gorski, he celebrated way too soon.

    Oh FFS! The study was under-powered and had an ice cream bias: people who get vaccinated always get ice cream at the school and then ice cream again at home, FFS!

    This means that they get sick from the ice cream (ffs), but the stupid researchers thought it was the vaccines.

    Test them later, you will find all the unvaccinated children with measles, spots FFS!


    Real big measles-spots
    swollen-testicles from mumps
    Iron lung redux

    I understand Celeste McGovern is based somewhere in Scotland (I forget where) but I can tell you she has written some brilliant articles in my view .

    That’s funny I had all those childhood diseases and not a big deal. No iron lung, no big red spots, no swollen nuts.

      Oh FFS Troutman!!! You are one of the lucky ones!

      If we didn’t have vaccines everyone would would be dalmatian-spotted with measles and have leg braces with swollen testicles!!

      Think Forrest Gump with leg braces an giant nuts!!! And spots FFS!! SPOTS!!!!

      Exactly, but those who profit directly or indirectly from all this “health science” madness (insurance industry, docs, ‘science’ bloggers) don’t want to hear about that. They much prefer the minimal communicable disease but all the auto-immune and brain damage situation. Which is all getting very costly, never mind the emotional toll.

    FFS people! Have fun pushing your mumps-swollen testicles around in a wheelbarrow with your leg-braces!!!

    • Barry on May 21, 2017 at 6:51 pm said:

      FFS science mom, I grew up during a time (…not that long ago) when pretty much every child I knew contracted measles, mumps and chicken pox.

      Not a single one of those children ever reported issues with swollen nuts, or required leg braces or a wheel chairs.

      However, the one thing that many of them NOW have in common… are vaccine disabled children.

      You might be able to peddle this propaganda to younger generations of parents, for reasons that only you understand. But anyone here over 40 years old, knows from experience that you are completely full of shit.

    I grew up experiencing all of these so-called dreadful diseases. My sister and I had the whole gamut, from chicken pox, measles, etc. I still remember loving the fact that we got to stay home from school; remember jumping on the beds and feeling a little scratchy, but that’s it. No one died. These childhood ‘diseases’ (not really diseases, but illness which lasted for approx. one week) were considered a rite of passage for ALL children in those days. There were NO billboards, or posters anywhere declaring these childhood illnesses were mass killers. Rather, what was told to parents during this time was that these were benign diseases which most children handled very well.

    But then, when vaccines were available for all these what were once considered benign diseases, SUDDENLY these same illnesses were now life threatening and if you didn’t get your children vaccinated, they’d die!

    I have never seen a bitter scam perpetuated on the human race, as is the SCAM of vaccination. I am heartened to see that so many people are finally waking up to that fact (mostly because they’ve witnessed the after effects of vaccination on their loved ones and/or on themselves).
