CCHR NEWSLETTER: CAN VACCINES CAUSE PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS?
The authors statistically analyzed insurance claims data between 2002 and 2007 for thousands of children ages 6 to 15 for any relationships between various vaccinations (influenza, tetanus & diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, meningitis, varicella) and various subsequent psychiatric diagnoses (obsessive-compulsive disorder, anorexia nervosa, tic disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder).
The overall conclusion of this analysis implies that the onset of some psychiatric disorders may be related to some children having recently received a vaccination.
Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study
Although the association of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine with autism spectrum disorder has been convincingly disproven, the onset of certain brain-related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders has been found to be temporally associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines. This study examines whether antecedent vaccinations are associated with increased incidence of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), anorexia nervosa (AN), anxiety disorder, chronic tic disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder in a national sample of privately insured children.
