Vaccines are truly a hot button topic today among mothers, families, and the medical profession. It is important to remember how critical this decision is and that you have rights. We cannot ever just blindly follow what the status quo offers us. We then become thoughtless sheep being led to the slaughter. We must challenge status quo, seek information from unbiased sources, and take ownership of our decisions.
So, this is a place to begin. There is no room here to completely cover the vastness of information or accurately pose arguments to refute some common misnomers. This will simply kick start your inquiries into vaccines and discovering the truth.
Vaccines have toxic materials. That is a fact that cannot be denied. The ingredients insert clearly states the contents of vaccines and no matter how someone wants to spin it, the ingredients are toxic. Here is a document stating the vaccine ingredients and what the contents mean.
Let’s just talk about a few of the ingredients:
Aluminum is present in many things around us. It’s in food, air, water, and soil and is said to be harmless when swallowed because it doesn’t absorb into the body when consumed. Aluminum is put into vaccines as an adjuvant to help them “work better” or to “enhance” them. So what is the concern about injecting aluminum into the blood stream?
According to the FDA:
“Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration [this means injected into the body] if kidney function is impaired . . . Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates [babies], who received parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity [for a tiny newborn, this toxic dose would be 10 to 20 micrograms, and for an adult it would be about 350 micrograms]. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.” [Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document NDA 19-626/S-019, Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for Dextrose Injections.]
“Aluminum content in parenteral drug products could result in a toxic accumulation of aluminum in individuals receiving TPN therapy. Research indicates that neonates [newborns] and patient populations with impaired kidney function may be at high risk of exposure to unsafe amounts of aluminum. Studies show that aluminum may accumulate in the bone, urine, and plasma of infants receiving TPN. Many drug products used in parenteral therapy [injections] may contain levels of aluminum sufficiently high to cause clinical manifestations [symptoms] . . . parenteral aluminum bypasses the protective mechanism of the GI tract and aluminum circulates and is deposited in human tissues. Aluminum toxicity is difficult to identify in infants because few reliable techniques are available to evaluate bone metabolism in . . . infants . . . Although aluminum toxicity is not commonly detected clinically, it can be serious in selected patient populations, such as neonates [newborns], and may be more common than is recognized.” [Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document 02N-0496, Aluminum in Large and Small Volume Parenterals Used in Total Parenteral Nutrition. Available online at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/98fr/oc0367.pdf]
So basically from those documents we learn that if a premature baby receives more than 10 mcg of aluminum in an IV, it can accumulate in their bones and brain, and can be toxic.
The FDA maximum requirements for aluminum received in an IV is 25 mcg per day. The suggested aluminum per kg of weight to give to a person is up to 5mcg. (so a 5 pounds baby should get no more than 11mcg of aluminum.) Anything that has more than 25 mcg of aluminum is *supposed* to have a label that says:
WARNING: This product contains aluminum that may be toxic. Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration if kidney function is impaired. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solutions, which contain aluminum.
Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 [micro]g/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration. [http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfcfr/CFRSearch.cfm?fr=201.323]
— Vaccines, for some reason, are not required to have this label and also are not required to follow the maximum dosage of 25 mcg.
So doing some math — the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA:
8 pound, healthy baby: 18.16 mcg of aluminum
15 pound, healthy baby: 34.05 mcg of aluminum
30 pound, healthy toddler: 68.1 mcg of aluminum
50 pound, healthy child: 113 mcg of aluminum
150 pound adult: 340.5 mcg of aluminum
350 pound adult: 794.5 mcg of aluminum
So how much aluminum is in the vaccines that are routinely given to children?
- Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – 225 mcg per shot
- Hepatitis B – 250 mcg
- DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 mcg
- Pneumococcus – 125 mcg
- Hepatitis A – 250 mcg
- HPV – 225 mcg
- Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – 330 mcg
- Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – 850 mcg
At birth, most children are given the hepatitis B vaccination. The amount of aluminum in the Hepatitis B vaccine alone is almost 14 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALUMINUM THAT IS FDA-APPROVED.
At well-child check-ups, it’s common for 2 month, 4 month, 6 month etc., appointments to include up to 8 vaccinations that add up to more than 1,000 mcg of aluminum. Look at the chart above and notice that that amount isn’t even safe for a 350 pound adult. And many children get up to 8 vaccinations a visit several times a year!
According to the FDA and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), what happens if a child receives more than the maximum required dose of aluminum?
- Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic.
- Aluminum can cause neurological harm.
- Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidney’s or kidney disorders or in premature babies. (How many children are tested to see if their kidney’s are functioning properly before they are vaccinated? Could this also be why the Hepatitis B shot, given to infants at birth, has been linked to SIDS? Neonatal Deaths After Hep B vaccination.)
[Aluminum Toxicity in Infants and Children, Committee on Nutrition,American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatrics Volume 97, Number 3 March, 1996, pp. 413-416]
This is just one example of the over exposure to toxic material in vaccines. Each of the ingredients has toxic levels making it nearly impossible to escape deadly levels of toxic material for each vaccine. And, Dr.’s office routinely give more than one vaccine at a time.
Let’s do one more:
Formaldehyde (or Formalin):
I personally became aware of what formaldehyde is most commonly used for by our local mortician several years ago. After my son died, we met with the funeral directors to begin planning our son’s funeral. During our grief-ridden conversations, we came to the conclusion that we needed to wait a week to have the funeral. My father-in-law had graciously offered to make his casket from scratch, and that takes time (the project ended up including all of my brother’s-in-laws and sister’s-in-law, my dad, my brother, my mom, and my mother-in-law). Knowing the time constraints from death to burial, (or at least what I thought I knew) I thought this might be an issue. The funeral director (also the head mortician) assured us it would not be a problem because the formalin used in the embalming process would preserve his precious little body so that we wouldn’t need to worry about the concern of waiting a week. “What’s Formalin?” I asked? “Formaldehyde,” he answered. When I learned that Formaldehyde was an ingredient in vaccines, it made me a little sick to my stomach.
Formalin is an aqueous, or watery, form of Formaldehyde.
- Formaldehyde is toxic and is known to cause cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen [International Agency for Research on Cancer (June 2004). IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans Volume 88 (2006): Formaldehyde, 2-Butoxyethanol and 1-tert-Butoxypropan-2-ol. Retrieved June 10, 2011, from:http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol88/index.php].
- In 2011, the National Toxicology Program, an interagency program of the Department of Health and Human Services, named formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen in its 12th Report on Carcinogens [National Toxicology Program (June 2011). Report on Carcinogens, Twelfth Edition. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, National Toxicology Program. Retrieved June 10, 2011, from: http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/roc12].
According to the National Research Council:
Fewer than 20% but perhaps more than 10% of the general population may be susceptible to formaldehyde allergies and may react acutely at any exposure level.
Formaldehyde is oxidised to formic acid which leads to acidosis and nerve damage. Acidosis can be described as a condition in which the acidity of the body tissues and fluids is abnormally high. The liver and the kidneys may also be damaged.
Other known side effects from exposure to formaldehyde:
- Alters tissue proteins
- antibodies formation
- blood in urine
- body aches
- cardiac impairment
- palpitations and arrhythmias
- central nervous system depression
- changes in higher cognitive functions
- chest pains and tightness
- destruction of red blood cells
- difficulty concentrating
- ear aches
- emotional upsets
- foetal asphyxiation [SIDS, perhaps?]
- flu-like or cold like illness
- gastrointestinal inflammation
- hypomenstrual syndrome
- immune system sensitiser
- impaired (short) attention span
- inability to recall words and names
- inconsistent IQ profiles
- retarded speech pattern
- schizophrenic-type symptoms
- sensitivity to sound

You can read more extensive information as to the ingredients here.
Now that we’ve exposed the toxic level of ingredients, which is information produced by the CDC, we must ask ourselves why we would choose to vaccinate? It doesn’t sound too healthy. The most common reason is the idea of Herd Immunity. In order to keep a population healthy we must have a certain percentage of the community vaccinated. After-all, we focus on the fact that vaccines are supposed to increase antibodies, but we know now these are not the same antibodies we produce when actually, naturally, exposed to an illness or disease in which we allow our body to react using it’s own immune system, in turn strengthening it.
This is a very interesting article about dogs and the antibodies argument.
So now that we have discounted Herd Immunity, which you should certainly Google more about that but be sure to try and find non-biased information in which the information produced does not directly or indirectly financially benefit them or just to continue to spew the same old same old, we can look at a few more interesting facts about Vaccines and I’ll post some websites you should check out.
Vaccines contain Aborted Fetal Cells.
I don’t know about you but this is a major ethical concern to me. And it’s gross.
Source: VacTruth.com and here: VacTruth on Facebook
The MMRV ProQuad vaccine, made by Merck, contains DNA from at least 3 aborted human babies and blood serum from unknown blood donors. So when you or your child gets the MMRV vaccine, routinely given twice to kids on the schedule, they are being injected with other peoples DNA, which can cause health problems. It is wrong those children used for vaccine production never had a say about their fate.
The MMRV ProQuad vaccine package insert states it contains the following,
WI-38, which was developed in 1961, composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of a three month old white female fetus
MRC-5, which was developed in 1965, MCR-5 cell line was derived from the lung tissue of a 14-week-old male (Britain).
RA-273, which was developed in 1964 is cultivated on WI-38, the rubella virus strain RA 27/3, was obtained from an infected aborted fetus
and Human Albumin from blood donors.
It does not state this truth about a 4th cell line developed from another aborted baby,
IMR-90 considered as an alternate for WI-38 and other standard human lung cell strains. human diploid fibroblast strain IMR-90 was derived by W.W. Nichols and associates from the lungs of a 16-week female fetus. (This can be used to substitute WI-38).
Vaccines Account for an Increased Risk in SIDS
There is an excellent explanation concerning SIDS and the Pertussis vaccine. You can read it here. But, here is an image to assist with the information, it is also on the post.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association* found that children diagnosed with asthma (a respiratory ailment not unlike SIDS) were five times more likely than not to have received pertussis vaccine.(1) Another study found that babies die at a rate eight times greater than normal within three days after getting a DPT shot.(2) The three primary doses of DPT are given at two months, four months, and six months. About 85 percent of SIDS cases occur at one through six months, with the peak incidence at age two to four months.
In a recent scientific study of SIDS, episodes of apnea (cessation of breathing) and hypopnea (abnormally shallow breathing) were measured before and after DPT vaccinations. “Cotwatch” (a precise breathing monitor) was used, and the computer printouts it generated (in integrals of the weighted apnea-hypopnea density — WAHD) were analyzed. The data clearly shows that vaccination caused an extraordinary increase in episodes where breathing either nearly ceased or stopped completely. These episodes continued for months following vaccinations. Dr. Viera Scheibner, the author of the study, concluded that “vaccination is the single most prevalent and most preventable cause of infant deaths.”
I highly recommend reading this article.
Another great article you can find here talks about SIDS, CANCER, MATTRESSES and VACCINES.
Vaccines and Encephalitis
There is an article that is not necessarily about educating concerning vaccines, but it does state,
an allergic reaction to vaccinations , as per the National Institutes of Health, also can cause encephalitis with brain swelling. Encephalitis was included as one of the vaccine injuries to be compensated for under the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. –Source
Scroll down to where it reads Adjuvants Defined and it reads…
Vaccine adjuvants are substances added to vaccine formulations during the manufacturing process that are designed to boost and prolong the overall immunological responses to vaccines. This results in a priming of the brain’s immune cells, the microglia and astrocytes, followed by intense microglial and astrocyte reactions with each successive series of vaccination. As reviewed by Viera Scheibner, PhD, there are three general classes of adjuvants:
1. Aluminum: Aluminum phosphate, Aluminum hydroxide, Aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, and Aluminum potassium sulfate
2. Various oils including Freund’s emulsified oil, mineral oil, emulsified peanut oil (adjuvant 65), and squalene (shark oil),
3. Bacterial products including Bordettella pertussis (whooping cough), Mycobacterium (tuberculosis), cholera toxin, and others.  Adjuvants in various vaccines are listed on vaccine package inserts. 
In what may be the most comprehensive review to date on the pathophysiology of adverse vaccine reactions, neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock has compiled a mass of evidence that repeated stimulation of the brain’s immune system results in intense reactions of microglial and astrocyte cells, which serve as the brain’s immune system, with each successive series of vaccinations. This is primarily the result of vaccine adjuvants that are added expressly for immune stimulation purposes. [33-35]
In explanation, microglia and astrocytes are first-line immunological responder cells located in the brain that defend against foreign infectious invaders. Normally this response, such as to a viral infection, is of limited duration and harmless to the brain. However, when microglia and astrocytes are over-stimulated for prolonged periods, which vaccine adjuvants are designed to bring about, this extended activation can be very destructive to the brain causing inflammation and/or bleeding.
It becomes difficult to deny that vaccines are wired in such a way that the swelling of the brain is impossible to escape. And some kids just don’t recover from this process. The toxins are repeated over and over as the infants go in for well visits and the brain is continually stimulated to respond in an unnatural way causing inflammation which can do irreversible damage in some kids.
Here is another article on Mercola’s site about the neurotoxic nature of vaccines and encephalitis.
As I said we can’t possibly cover it all so I’ll finish up with a list of links to click and read so you can make an informed decision.
