Vaccinated Boys More Than
300% More Likely to Have ADHD

Boys who have been vaccinated have a 155 percent greater chance of having a neurological disorder, such as ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, PDD-NOS or autism, according to a survey of over 17,000 children commissioned by Generation Rescue.

The survey was conducted because childhood neurological disorders have increased steadily with the rise of vaccinations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends 36 vaccines for children up to the age of 5, up from 10 vaccines in 1983.

The survey found that vaccinated boys, when compared to unvaccinated boys:
- Vaccinated boys were 155% more likely to have a neurological disorder
- Vaccinated boys were 224% more likely to have ADHD
- Vaccinated boys were 61% more likely to have autism

Older vaccinated boys, ages 11-17 (about half the boys surveyed), compared to older unvaccinated boys:
- Vaccinated boys were 158% more likely to have a neurological disorder
- Vaccinated boys were 317% more likely to have ADHD
- Vaccinated boys were 112% more likely to have autism
(Note: older children may be a more reliable indicator because many children are not diagnosed until they are 6-8 years old, and we captured data beginning at age 4.)

All vaccinated boys and girls, compared to unvaccinated boys and girls:
- Vaccinated boys and girls were 120% more likely to have asthma

While no differences were noted in girls, Generation Rescue believes it may be due to the fact that boys represent about 80 percent of total cases of neurological disorders.
