Vaccines: Good or Bad? Part 6
As we continue this study we cannot ignore the studies that have exposed the dangerous ‘components’ that have been found in many different vaccines. When we look at these ‘ingredients’ we have to ask why they are in a vaccine. They are toxic to the human body, known contaminants that are very dangerous when introduced to the human body. Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.
In the study, published this week in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, the researchers led by Antoinetta Gatti, of the National Council of Research of Italy and the Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, say their results “show the presence of micro- and nano-sized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccine samples” not declared in the products’ ingredients lists.
Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccines, Gardasil and Cevarix, for example, and in the seasonal flu vaccine Aggripal manufactured by Novartis as well as in the Meningetec vaccine meant to protect against meningitis C.
Samples of an infant vaccine called Infarix Hexa (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenzae type B) manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline was found to contain stainless steel, tungsten and a gold-zinc aggregate.
Other metal contaminants included platinum, silver, bismuth, iron, and chromium. Chromium (alone or in alloy with iron and nickel) was identified in 25 of the human vaccines from Italy and France that were tested.
GSK’s Fluarix vaccine for children three years and older contained 11 metals and aggregates of metals. Similar aggregates to those identified in the vaccines have been shown to be prevalent in cases of leukemia, the researchers noted.
Feligen, the only veterinary vaccine tested in the 44 total vaccines sampled, proved to be the only sample free from inorganic contamination. 1
I find it interesting that the only vaccine without contaminants is for animals. Where is the FDA concerning this? Why are they not controlling this industry so that the vaccines don’t contain toxic materials? There are known toxins that have been attributed to autism, headaches, paralysis and many other unwanted side effects. The study explains that these foreign injected impurities may explain a vast array of apparently unrelated adverse events associated with vaccination from headaches and seizures to fatigue, muscle pain, paralysis and sudden infant death syndrome. More likely than not, they speculate, vaccine contaminants will “have a more serious impact on very small organisms like those of children.”
Once inside a body, foreign material in a vaccine shot, whether it is meant to be there as in the case of an aluminum, or not, in the case of contaminants, launches the formidable immune system into action.
As with anything small and foreign, its reaction to vaccine ingredients is potent, poorly understood, unpredictable, and as the Italian researchers say, may be “undesirable.” The immune system may dispatch an army of large white blood cells called macrophages to engulf the foreign bodies and contain them in swellings and granulomas at the injection site. But if the contaminants are swept away in the blood’s circulation to any distant site or organ including the microbiota, which regulate numerous functions including the immune system, their effect could be felt long after they covertly entered the body. 2 These are the things that government literally demands that we inject into our children. I have seen the auto industry produce cars that they knew had problems but they needed to meet the expected delivery dates and figured they could just recall the car and fix it later hoping that nothing too bad happened in the mean time. There seems to be the same mentality in the pharmaceutical industry, all for the almighty dollar. Vaccines have a long and sordid history of contamination. In 1955 batches of polio vaccine containing live polio virus infected and paralysed hundreds of children. The tragedy became known as the Cutter Incident for the laboratory where the vaccines had passed safety tests with flying colors.
But there are dozens of other “incidents” which would better be called acts of criminal negligence, including:
- The polio vaccine doled out between 1955 and 1963 was contaminated with simian virus 40 (SV40) from monkey kidney cells used to produce the vaccine. It’s been linked to the growing epidemic of cancer.
- In 2007, Merck & Company, Inc. recalled 1.2 million doses of Hib vaccines due to contamination with bacteria called B. cereus, a potentially lethal food-poisoning bug.
- In 2009, more than 40,000 doses of a meningitis C vaccine for babies were withdrawn from the British market when they were found to be contaminated with blood-poisoning bacteria, S aureus.
- In 2010, deep sequence analysis of eight different live attenuated virus vaccines revealed unexpected viral sequences in three of them: retrovirus avian leukosis was found in a measles vaccine, a virus similar to simian retrovirus was identified in Rotateq anti-diarrhea vaccine developed by CDC consultant Paul Offit, and the entire genome sequence of porcine cirovirus1 was found in Rotarix leading the FDA to suspend the rotavirus vaccine. 3
It seems that money is the only real factor involved in producing these vaccines. There seems to be no regard to the studies that show the toxic contents of these vaccines. Current research has demonstrated that even very low concentrations of toxins and toxicants are dangerous to children’s neurological development.
In a video presentation on the toxicity of particles to children, Bruce Lanphear, professor of children’s environmental health at Simon Fraser University in Canada, points out that “the World Health Organization and other agencies agree: there is no safe level of lead exposure.”
Neurotoxic lead is unexpectedly more brain damaging at lower concentrations than at higher concentrations. “As the level of lead in children’s blood increases from 0 to 100 parts per billion, IQ scores drop by about six points,” says Lanphear. “In contrast, an increase from 100 to 200 parts per billion results in an IQ drop of two more points. An increase from 200 to 300 parts per billion results in an IQ drop of another point.”
“The impact of toxins on the developing brain is permanent,” adds Lanphear. “Children who are more heavily exposed to toxins won’t reach the same peak cognitive ability as those who have lower exposures.”
Other studies have shown that the smaller the particle is, the more potent is its ability to stimulate the immune system. Researchers reported in a 2015 study, for example, that the aluminum adjuvant used in vaccines forms 1–20 µm “particulates” dispersed in solution, but much smaller nanoparticles – on the scale of one-billionth of a meter – are more effective at provoking a biological response. “There is increasing evidence that nanoparticles around or less than 200 nm as vaccine or antigen carriers have a more potent adjuvant activity than large microparticles,” they said. 4
We are dealing with our children here primarily and even ourselves in some cases and the utmost precaution should be taken to preserve their health. These vaccines are not doing that in fact what we see is they are doing the opposite. What we are seeing is a complete disregard for the long term health of our kids. The industry ignores their own studies and findings. When it comes to toxins then, less is more. Yet the industry does not appear to be even aware of the toxicological implications of its own findings. While contaminants may be at trace levels in a single adjuvant, and vary widely from lot to lot, there is no study of what pollutants piggyback in on other ingredients or downstream in the manufacturing process. No one in the public health oversight agencies promoting vaccines has even measured how these toxins add up over the 64-vaccine schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. As far as anyone knows, Gatti’s is the only study to have examined the products for metal contaminants at the end of the line, before they are injected.
The known components of vaccines are bad enough. Besides, neurotoxic aluminum and thimerosal, the ingredients list is a witches brew of quack medicines: remnants of WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts cells from aborted babies, processed bovine 14 gelatin, neomycin, glutaraldehyde, monkey kidney cells, polysorbate 80, hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide, insect cell, viral protein, Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium… and so on. 5
As Americans we have let the government take control over things that they never should have been given the power to control. I can understand the need for controlling any communicable disease but there is no excuse for an outright attack on the health of our kids for the sake of a dollar. We have allowed it and we must correct it. It will be harder to correct that it would have been to stop it in the first place. The Founders gave the people the power to control the government but we have allowed the government to control us.
