May 2017 – While health officials recommend an ever increasing number of vaccines for babies and young children, vaccine ingredients and their potential to injure in the short or long-term are rarely discussed. When these complex biochemical substances are injected directly into the body, the risk of toxicity increases.
It is assumed that the ingredients used in vaccine formulas have been studied individually and in combinations to determine safety. This has not been done as discussed by this medical doctor and neuroscientist.
Mercury is a known neurotoxin, yet for decades it has been used as a vaccine preservative, and to some extent is still used in vaccine manufacturing with the result that trace amounts may remain in some vaccines which are not required to be disclosed by the manufacturer. Mercury in the form of the vaccine preservative thimerosal is still a component of some vaccines recommended for you and your children.
The type and contents of vaccines available for use in Canada can be found here. Note that Tm is the abbreviation used for thimerosal.
It’s well known that chemicals can interact with one another. There can be synergistic effects between chemicals as well as additive effects when combined with the many environmental toxins we are exposed to today. A prime example is the synergy between fluorides and heavy metals like aluminum which form complexes like aluminum fluoride which can travel to the brain and may be implicated in dementia.
Aluminum (Al) is toxic to all life forms but is used in many vaccines to boost immune response to vaccine antigens. A known neurotoxin, aluminum activates brain inflammation (excitotoxicity) is pro-inflammatory, interferes with gene expression, impacts memory, cognition, psychomotor control, damages the blood brain barrier, depresses mitochondrial function and induces allergy. Aluminum adjuvants in vaccines are linked to chronic autoimmune diseases in the published science.
A child in Canada receiving all government recommended vaccines can be injected with over 5,000 micrograms of aluminum in the first few years of life. An emerging body of scientific research is alerting us to the serious health risks associated with injecting aluminum compounds into the body during pregnancy (fetal life) and infancy, the most critical period of brain development.
Animal products in vaccines
Animal-derived products used in vaccine manufacture can include amino acids, glycerol, detergents, gelatin, enzymes. Cow’s milk is a source of amino acids, and sugars such as galactose. Other animal derivatives used in vaccine manufacture are cow skeletal muscle used to prepare broths used in certain media to make vaccines. “Many difficult to grow microorganisms and the cells that are used to propagate viruses require the addition of serum from blood to the growth media.”
Fetal cell lines used to manufacture live virus vaccines
Fetal cells used in the manufacture of some live virus vaccines raises questions of ethical and moral considerations, as well as concerns about the toxicological aspects of the presence of human fetal DNA in vaccines. The COG website lists the types of fetal cells lines used in the manufacture of vaccines.
These researchers found that “..rising autistic disorder prevalence is directly related to vaccines manufactured utilizing human fetal cells.” Theresa Deisher Ph.D, lead researcher in this study stated that, “Not only are the human fetal contaminated vaccines associated with autistic disorder throughout the world, but also with epidemic childhood leukemia and lymphomas.”
Sources for vaccine ingredients
Articles listing the ingredients in many of the taxpayer-funded Canadian vaccines can be found in our ‘Specific Vaccines’ section. Vaccine product monographs listing vaccine ingredients can be found here.
Unfortunately, vaccine manufacturers are not required to list every ingredient or trace amounts of ingredients nor all the details about the manufacturing process (which may, as is the case with mercury, leave small but still-significant amounts of harmful substances in the finished product). This Canadian government webpage provides types and contents of licensed vaccines in Canada And this CDC page lists the declared excipients in vaccines licensed in the U.S.
This article discusses a recent Italian study which analyzed the contents of 30 vaccines and found multiple dangerous contaminants (including metal toxicants) in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.
