A Mother Researches Vaccine Ingredients.

Do You Know What You’re Injecting into Your Child?

  • Not all vaccines are thimerosal-free. (In India there are no "mercury free" vaccines)
  • The ingredients may concern pro-lifers, vegetarians, and vegans.
  • Vaccines contain chemicals recognized as hazardous and poisonous.
Link to original article:

Are you thinking about vaccination? The debate over childhood vaccinations rages on parenting forums everywhere. Should you vax, or shouldn’t you? We all have our own opinions on whether to inoculate babies and children. When making the decision, it is important that you educate yourself rather than relying on the doctors and nurses to take the time to do it. There is so much to consider when choosing whether to vaccinate your child or not. It is surprising how little those who are for inoculations know about their ingredients. When I did my research on the ingredients of vaccines, what I found was shocking!
Many vaccines do contain live viruses. This includes the MMR and all shots for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. The rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq, also contains several live rotavirus strains form both humans and monkeys. Polio vaccines contain several types of inactivated polio virus. The Hepatitis A vaccine contains that strain of the hepatitis virus. Other vaccines contain fragments of viruses, such as polysaccharides or toxoids, or weakened viruses. Flu shots contain influenza virus. The HiB has haemophilus influenza bacteria in it. Viruses are often ‘weakened’ or ‘inactivated’ with formaldehyde, but as its effect is temporary, these viruses can revert back to full strength.

Trace amounts of the mediums in which vaccines are cultured can be found in them as well. For example, flu shots and mumps vaxes are made in chicken eggs, hence the reason those with egg sensitivity may be allergic to them. Some are made with genetically altered yeast.Polio inoculations are created in monkey kidney cells. Hepatitis A, RotaTeq, Varicella (chickenpox), Rubella, and Mumps vaccines are cultured in human diploid cells that come from aborted human fetal tissue, as in a dead baby–the lungs to be exact. That’s the freaky truth.

Ammonium sulfate can be found in the DTaP, DPT, HiB vaccines, all of which are routinely given to babies. Ammonium is basically positively charged ammonia. Ammonia is found in urine and used in household cleaning products, the source of that strong odor. It is toxic when inhaled. Sulfate is a salt of sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is used in ore processing, fertilizer manufacturing, oil refining, and wastewater processing. It comes from sulfur, obviously, which is used in gunpowder and insecticides. Sulfur also has a very distinct, disgusting smell. Ammonium sulfate may be a gastrointestinal, liver, respiratory, and neurological toxicant.
embalmingfluid-formaldehyde-the injection going in your children

is used in the DTaP and Hepatitis A vaccine. It is 30% formaldehyde. The DPT, some polio, and flu shots contain actual formaldehyde. It is used as a tissue fixative. It is considered one of the most hazardous compounds. It can cause high acidity, liver, kidney, and nerve damage. To say that the side effects are numerous would be an understatement. Among them are blindness, asphyxiation, pneumonia, shock, vomiting. Smoke and car exhaust contain formaldehyde. It can be used as a disinfectant and detergent. The most well-known use for formaldehyde is in embalming corpses. I remember dissecting rats in Biology class that had been preserved with formaldehyde. Formaldehyde comes from methanol, which is quite poisonous and is used as antifreeze. Formaldehyde stays in your system at a cellular level.
From Dr Tenpenny's Site:
"Current methods used to inactivate living pathogens in vaccine production involve the use of chemical agents such as formaldehyde or beta-propiolactone to chemically modify the genetic material of the pathogen. However, there is substantial evidence that both of these agents are human and animal carcinogens. 

For example, studies in rats exposed to formaldehyde by inhalation have shown that formaldehyde induces squamous-cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity. Additionally, formaldehyde has been shown to be genotoxic in vitro and in vivo. Both genotoxicity and cytotoxicity play an important role in the carcinogenicity of formaldehyde.

Although the concentration of formaldehyde in vaccines is typically low (below 0.02%), this represents up to 50-100 micrograms of formaldehyde per injected dose in many vaccines...Particularly dangerous is the amount of formaldehyde that is injected into infants and small children during the course of multiple vaccinations. While the amount of formaldehyde in each vaccine dose is low, the combined amount can become substantial."

Let's add up the amount of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, is injected into children by the time they are five years of age. Assuming they get all doses of all recommended vaccines on time and according to the 2012 vaccination schedule:

Hepatitis b - 3 doses x 15 mcg each
DTaP - 5 doses x 100 mcg each
Polio (IPV) - 5 doses x 200 mcg each
Influenza - 6 doses x 25 mcg each
Hepatitis A - 1 dose x 100 mcg each

Total: 1,795 mcg = 1.795 milligrams

Through sloppy and negligent math, lawmakers and manufacturers failed to identify that infants received as much as 87.5 micrograms of mercury (thimerosal) by six months of age. Again, through sloppy and negligent math, lawmakers and manufacturers fail to throw up a red flag regarding the large amount of formaldehyde injected into young bodies with developing brains, neurological systems and organs.

Aluminum is found in the vaccines for DPT, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis A in both phosphate and hydroxide forms. It may be toxic to your blood system, neurons, and respiratory organs. It is suspected that it could cause brain damage such as Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. It is another one of the more hazardous chemicals to humans. Shockingly, too much aluminum can even cause coma.
DPT and DTaP, which are for diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis, contain thimerosal. It can also be found in flu shots, Hepatitis B, meningococcal vaccines, and HiB. 

Thimerosal is 50% mercury, which is extremely poisonous. It causes neurons to disintegrate, changes chromosomes, and has been associated with autism. At a typical well-baby check-up, an infant may be injected with as much as what the WHO considers the maximum for three months of exposure. Again, the word numerous is inadequate to describe the many side effects that can occur. Among them are poisoning, pain, death, hallucinations, and deafness.
Thimerosal is supposedly being phased out of vaccines that are on the early childhood immunization schedule. Companies are still using it to make vaccines but trying to keep it out of the final product, which may still contain thimerosal but in smaller amounts than before. Some clinics still offer the versions of shots containing thimerosal, and you need to ask specifically for the new supposedly thimerosal-free version. Vaccines not on the early childhood immunization list may still contain high amounts of thimerosal. Flu shots are among the vaccines that still have thimerosal.
(In India "mercury free" vaccines are not generally available)

Sorbitol is one of the less hazardous chemicals but still may be toxic to the liver and gastrointestinal system. You’ll find it in the MMR and polio shot. Tri(n)butylphosphate is in some brands of influenza vaccine. It is one of the more hazardous chemicals. This one may be toxic to neurons and kidneys. Polysorbate 20 (hepatitis A) and 80 (influenza) has caused cancer in animals. It could be toxic to the skin and other sense organs. Betapropiolactone, found in some influenza vaccines, is a proven carcinogen and suspected toxin to the liver, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system, and skin and sense organs. It is listed among the top 10% of most hazardous compounds.

Antifreeze-Its whats being injected into children
Other ingredients include monosodium glutamate, potassium monophosphate, diphosphate, and phenoxyethanol (antifreeze). That last one is very toxic and one of the more hazardous chemicals. It’s used in Hepatitis A and polio vaccines. It may cause disorders of the kidney, liver, circulatory system, and central nervous system. It’s common knowledge that ingesting antifreeze can cause death by poisoning. It may be a developmental and reproductive toxicant, can weaken the immune system, and is toxic to many body parts. Other side effects can range from vomiting to convulsions.
Common ingredients include animal byproducts, such as gelatin (a known allergen), serums, guinea pig embryo cells, or residual proteins. This may be worrisome to those who are pro-life, vegetarian, or vegan. Many people are allergic to gelatin, which can be found in the MMR, Varicella, and DTP vaccines. DPT has red blood cells from sheep. Chick embryo and embryonic fluid is common, existing in flu and measles shots. As stated before, human diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue are used in vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis A, and chickenpox. These are foreign to the human body and dangerous to inject directly into the bloodstream. Some people are allergic to specific animal products and may thus have an allergic reaction to the vaccine.

Now some ingredients don’t seem that scary or harmful. Some are simply sugars, like sucrose and glycerol (which is actually a sugar alcohol.) Salt, sodium chloride, is used in some. Others are antibiotics like polymixin, which is used in some flu shots and Polio vaccines. Neomycin or neomycin sulfate can be found in the rotavirus vax, flu shots, polio vaccines, and vaccines for measles, mumps, and rubella like the MMR. It may hinder absorption of vitamin B6, potentially leading to epilepsy and mental retardation. Other antibiotics include gentamicin sulfate (flu shots), amphotericin B (rotavirus) and streptomycin (polio vaxes).

Sugars, salts and antibiotics are no big deal, right? Think about this though, with how much sugar and salt we take in already, why would we want to inject more into our bloodstream? More importantly, it is commonly known that taking antibiotics when not ill can weaken the immune system and cause problems, such as side effects. People can also develop allergies to antibiotics, especially after being exposed to them repeatedly. Many allergic reactions to vaccines are associated with antibiotic hypersensitivity. Some of these antibiotics are in several vaccines, making the child allergic to each one containing that antibiotic. Some vaccines contain more than one antibiotic, making it hard to know which one the child cannot tolerate. It’s pointless to inject antibiotics along with virus anyway, being that antibiotics have no effect on viruses.

Discovering that formaldehyde, antifreeze, and aborted fetal cells were in many vaccines was enough to convince me not to vaccinate my children any further. As I wrote this article I learned even more about the many toxins in the immunizations we give our children. I keep thinking, why would anyone want to inject any of this into their body? I would never drink antifreeze, not even a small amount of it, so why would I inject some into my baby’s bloodstream? Most of the ingredients in vaccines are extremely hazardous and toxic to our bodies, even in small quantities. Many believe that by not inoculating children against illness, one is taking a huge risk. For me, injecting my child with unneeded antibiotics, metals, poison, and live viruses is an even bigger risk. Where do you stand on the issue?

Exposure to toxins, such as ethanol and heavy metals (including lead, aluminum and the ethylmercury-containing preservative thimerosal) potently interrupt growth factor signaling, causing adverse effects on methylation reactions (i.e. the transfer of carbon atoms). Methylation, in turn, plays a significant role in regulating normal DNA function and gene expression, and is critical to proper neurological development in infants and children. Scientists and practitioners have identified an increase in diagnoses of autism and ADHD in particular, though the reasons why are largely unknown.
In their work, the scientists found that insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and the neurotransmitter dopamine both stimulated folate-dependent methylation pathways in neuronal cells. At the same time they noted that compounds like thimerosal, ethanol and metals (like lead and mercury) effectively inhibited these same biochemical pathways at concentrations that are typically found following vaccination or other sources of exposure. By better understanding what happens when infants and children are exposed to these materials, the work of Deth and his colleagues helps to explain how environmental contact with metals and administration of certain vaccines may lead to serious disorders that manifest themselves during childhood, including autism and ADHD.
