Letter to the editor: Geoff Hult

On November 22, 2020, a study was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health entitled “Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination.”

The study was conducted by Dr. Paul Thomas, MD, and Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, Ph.D.

Dr. Thomas is a pediatrician at Integrative Pediatrics in Portland, OR, and the study involved 3,324 patients who had all been born into his practice.

The study compared 2,763 children who had been partially or fully vaccinated to 561 children who were unvaccinated. It involved an analysis of a 10 year span comparing the rates of office and billed visits of the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. The office visits and billed diagnoses were for a wide variety of conditions including, but not limited to: asthma, allergic rhinitis, ADHD, respiratory infection, eczema, and anemia.

The findings of this independent study were very significant in that the partially and fully vaccinated sample of children had far more chronic conditions over time than the unvaccinated.

Among their conclusions were: “We can conclude that the unvaccinated children in this practice are not, overall, less healthy than the vaccinated and that indeed the vaccinated children appear to be significantly less healthy than the unvaccinated.” This study can be found on Dr. Thomas’ website

Wait a second. The science on vaccines being safe and effective is settled, right?

Actually, there are very few studies comparing health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated children, and from what I have heard from numerous medical professionals on this subject is that the CDC, NIH, and FDA do not actually do these studies.

The independent studies that are out there specifically on this matter show similar results to the one done by Dr. Thomas.

Another one to consider was published in SAGE Open Medicine entitled “Analysis of Health Outcomes in Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children: Developmental Delays, Asthma, Ear Infections, and Gastrointestinal Disorders.” This study was conducted by Brian Hooker, Ph.D. and Neil Z. Miller.

Their conclusions were: “In this study, based on a convenience sample of children born into one of three distinct pediatric medical practices, higher odds ratios were observed within the vaccinated versus unvaccinated group for developmental delays, asthma, and ear infections.”

If the science is really settled on the matter of vaccines being safe and effective, then there should be no reason for the likes of Dr. Hooker and Dr. Thomas to be conducting studies such as these.

If there are an abundance of studies demonstrating that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children, then why would they conduct these studies, wasting their time and resources on a settled matter? And why would they publish their findings on these matters knowing there will be an onslaught of “anti-vax” accusations and smearing of their reputations?

The answer is that the science of vaccines being safe and effective is absent and some credentialed professionals out there are motivated by the truth rather than taking the easy route by simply riding the Pharma bandwagon.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has made a good point in that there is a lot of money to be made from vaccines on the front end, but much more to be made on the back end by the industry in the treatment of chronic disease and sale of drugs due to vaccine injury.

People have historically not drawn the connection between vaccines and chronic disease, but with studies such as these out now, they can better do so. There is much more to it than that, but every thinking adult can understand the financial element and motive involved in products that do not help and heal but instead create lifetime customers for the industry.

Five days after Dr. Thomas and Dr. Lyons-Weiler’s results were published in November of last year, the Oregon Medical Board “emergently” suspended Dr. Thomas’ license. This would happen for one of two reasons. One possibility is Dr. Thomas has done a faulty study and the information he has presented truly is dangerous to the public’s overall well-being and he must be stopped from practicing by any means necessary, and quickly. If this is the case then the system we live under is just and fair and has the public’s best interests at heart.

The other possibility is that the system we live under is corrupt and criminal and when real doctors, motivated by the truth over money and job security, step up to the plate and show the world that what Pharma, the major media, and government has told us is not true, the messenger will then be attacked by the Pharma henchmen on medical boards.

What do you think? Our Creator gave us an immune system and designed us. Did He do that imperfectly so that we need vaccines to stay healthy, or do vaccines interfere with His design and make us less healthy?
