Vaccine Ingredients ……..
The following are some of the ingredients found in vaccines:
Thimerosal – A preservative containing mercury that has been used as an additive in vaccines since the 1930’s. While no severe, life-threatening reactions have been reported as a direct result of thimerosal, there is concern about this additive because of recent findings concerning the toxicity of mercury to the nervous and immune systems. In addition, with children now receiving a dozen or more injections of mercury-containing vaccines, even the Centers for Disease Control has raised some serious doubts and concerns about the safety of this additive.
On October 22, 1998, the American FDA banned thimerosal from any over-the-counter drug preparations because “safety and efficacy have not been established for the ingredients Despite this ban, thimerosal continues to be present in vaccines given to Canadian and American children.
In June 1999 the FDA revealed that infants who receive multiple doses of vaccines containing thimerosal would be exposed to total amounts of mercury that exceeded some federal guidelines. After public pressure, on July 7, 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the US Public Health Service (PHs) released a joint statement acknowledging the dangers of thimerosal. Despite these facts, vaccines containing mercury continue to be used by physicians who justify their use by minimizing the dangers of mercury.
Formaldehyde – The toxicity of this cancer-causing chemical should be of great concern to parents, especially when infants and children receive over a dozen different needles containing this substance before they reach school age. Formaldehyde can cause allergic reactions on both an immediate and delayed hypersensitivity basis, leading to potentially chronic immune system problems. According to the US Poisons Information Center: “There is no acceptable safe amount of formaldehyde if being injected into a living human body. It is a toxic substance and should be avoided at all costs.”
Sulfite – Sodium metabisulfite is a preservative also found in many foods and some alcoholic beverages. Large oral doses of sulfites can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, diarrhea, vomiting, cramps and dizziness.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) – MSG is a stabilizer known to cause adverse reactions in some people. In fact, there is a condition known as “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome” that causes nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache and diarrhea as a direct result of eating foods containing MSG.
Aluminum gels – These substances are found in a wide range of vaccines, and have been associated with reactions like erythema and subcutaneous nodules. Aluminum is a neurotoxin and has been linked to Alzheimer’s as well as other nervous system disorders.
Antibiotics – While penicillin is no longer added to vaccines due to its strong allergic potential, manufacturers routinely use similar antibiotics to prevent bacterial contamination. Even trace doses of these drugs may cause severe allergies in susceptible people.
Foreign genetic material – Humans can get diseases from monkey and other animal tissue used in the production of vaccines. Vaccines such as MMR and polio are attenuated in living organisms or cell cultures (kidney cell cultures of monkeys) . The rubella portion of the MMR vaccine is cultured on the cell-lines of aborted fetuses.
It is technologically impossible to exclude all possible risk of vaccine contamination. One such risk is the infestation of the sample by various viruses that cause deadly diseases and that have such a long latency period that a causal connection is almost impossible to detect. A live vaccine produced by conventional procedures can become a carrier of unknown genetic modifications or mutations—any number of viruses, for example.
Animals that are contaminated with a virus and whose cells are used to make a vaccine can inadvertently transfer that virus. Once injected into an infant, this virus could stay dormant for many years, only to surface at age forty as brain cancer. A virus can infect any cell in the body and cause malignant transformation: In other words, a virus can change a healthy cell into one that is malignant (calacerous).
