There are many types of evidence such as scientific, historical and experiential.  Science, like all other types of evidence,  has it's strengths as well as weaknesses.  Studies can be strongly or poorly designed and influenced by bias or any number of motivations.  Data can be cherry-picked and study conclusions do not always match the evidence within.  Here are a few questions to ask when critically assessing a study and it's findings:

  • What type of study is it?  A Meta-Analysis, a Randomized Controlled Trial, Cross-Over Study,, etc.
  • Who directly or indirectly funded the study?
  • Do the study headlines match the content?

Missing Evidence

Perhaps as significant as the growing body of vaccine critical research is the general lack of evidence coming from pro-vaccine sources that vaccines are safe and effective.  

  • True placebos such as saline injections are rarely used in the vaccine research promoted by the mainstream.  A few claim to but these tend to be "Cross-Over" studies in which both groups get both the vaccine and the saline placebo in reverse order.  Thus, honest control groups are usually absent.  One should always consider what constitutes the control group in order to relevantly assess the results of any study
  • Headlines or conclusions of vaccine safety and effectiveness are often not substantiated by the evidence within a study but many professionals do not read these details.  You, the consumer, still can.  
  • Research widely considered by the mainstream to be "reputable" and "credible" fails to compare the vaccinated to the unvaccinated.
  • A study examining the synergistic effects of all vaccines recommended to be given at the same time by the CDC does not exist.
