The largest study in the world on the long-term health effects of homeopathic immunisation was completed at Melbourne's Swinburne University (Australia) in 2004 (by Dr Isaac Golden). It found that:
* Homeopathic immunisation had a 90.4% efficacy against epidemic childhood diseases - a rate similar to or better than that of conventional vaccines.
* In contrast to vaccines, homeopathic immunisation was non-toxic and safe.
The study also looked at the relationship between four different immunisation choices (homeopathic immunisation, vaccination, a mixed naturopathic approach, and nothing) and the development of chronic disease in 781 children over a 12-year period. It found that of all groups, those who had been immunised homeopathically had the lowest incidence of chronic health problems. They suffered less asthma, eczema, allergies, and behavioural issues. The sickest children came from the fully vaccinated group. On asthma alone, they had a fifteen times greater incidence of the disease than un-vaccinated children.
