Vaccine Ingredients

Do You Know What You’re Injecting into Your Child?
Are you thinking about vaccination? The debate over childhood vaccinations is a challenging and emotionally charged subject. Many people have their own opinions on whether to inoculate babies and children. When making the decision, it is important that you educate yourself rather than relying on doctors and nurses to make the decision for you. There is so much to consider when choosing whether to vaccinate.  Perhaps a prudent question to ask yourself is whether or not you are comfortable injecting the ingredients of vaccines into your child’s body. The purpose of this article is to help you better understand what is specifically in Vaccines.
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.
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.
Formalin 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.
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 World Health Organization 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.
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.
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.  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).  Taking Antibiotics when not ill can weaken the immune system. 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.
Most of the ingredients in vaccines are 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. Ultimately parents’ must be well informed so they may be fully responsible and accountable with their decisions.
