Chemicals In Vaccines: Part 1 – Aluminium

An idea pops into my head for a blog. I read through my library of literature to take down notes and remind myself of things I may have forgotten. I use the search engine on the internet and read through some reports, studies and articles on all sides of the subject, then I open up my document to start to type my blog and the same things happens every week…I realise that I have opened up a can of worms and there is so much information that I can not possibly cover it all in one blog! So when the same thing happened to me this week, when I decided to write about ‘chemicals in vaccines’ I thought the easiest way to keep it simple, was to do a running blog, with a different chemical covered in each blog. This week I will cover ‘aluminum.’

Before I go into detail about aluminum being used in vaccines, I will explain the reason for chemical substances, (known as adjuvants) being used. They are supposed to enhance the immune response to the vaccine by boosting the immune system, or to make it react as intensely as possible for as long as possible. Chemicals are also used as preservative and tissue fixatives. They are intended to halt any further chemical reactions and the breakdown or multiplication of the live or weakened biological ingredients of the vaccine. The list of chemicals used is very lengthy; I will cover the most toxic and dangerous chemicals that have been linked to the rise in many illnesses and disabilities seen today.

A child will be threatened with 40 dose combinations of highly toxic substances over the course of the immunisation schedule. For example: the DPT vaccine contains: cultured diptheria bacterium, pertussis organisms and tetanus toxoid, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, formaldehyde, hydrochloric acid, aluminum phosphate and thimerisol (given at six weeks, three, five and fifteen months and at four years).

Vaccines containing high concentrations of aluminum were added to the childhood vaccination schedule when several vaccines containing mercury were removed, (there has been a 20% increase in aluminum content in vaccines since mercury was phased out). Six-week old babies now receive 1,225 mcg of aluminum from their vaccines, which is 50 times higher than safety levels! Children who follow the recommended vaccination schedule are injected with nearly 5,000mcg (5mg) of aluminum by the time they have received their 15month shots. The FDA considers levels of aluminum up to 0.85mg to be “safe”. When your child is injected with a vaccine, the aluminum compounds it contains accumulate not only at the site of injection, but travel to the brain and accumulate there.

In New Zealand, vaccines on the immunisation schedule that contain aluminum are:
Diptheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis (DTaP).
Hepatitis B (HepB).
Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib).
Hepatitis B (HepB).
Also human papillomavirus (Hpv).

Aluminum is a naturally occurring element present everywhere in our environment, (food, water, air and soil). Because the body does not absorb aluminum when swallowed, it is classed as a safe ingredient to use in medicines (including vaccines). The ‘Immunisation Advisory Centre’ of New Zealand states, “the use of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines has proven to be safe and effective”, however, there are many others (including myself) who believe otherwise. For one, the safety studies and scientific studies are totally in-adequate to prove this to be true. As I wrote in my last blog ‘Vaccine Safety?’ safety studies are not done properly, or long term, and can not prove for certain that vaccines are safe as mainstream medicine leads us to believe they are. The same stands for aluminum in vaccines. There has been no studies done on healthy babies, (other than in premature babies and people with impaired kidney function), to determine their ability to rapidly excrete aluminum, or looking at the effect on kidney, brain and tissue, (or any internal) absorption. There have also been no specific studies measuring the levels of aluminum absorption by the bloodstream when it is injected into the skin and muscles, or the levels of excretion from the body via urination. Why, has it been assumed that, when babies and children, whose brains and bodies are clearly still developing, will be able to work well enough to excrete a highly toxic chemical before it can circulate through their body, accumulate in their brains, and cause toxic effects? I don’t know! Well actually I do know. It’s the same case every time. Shoot the gun, then ask questions later…or just don’t ask questions at all, ever!

Studies that have been done (and as usual have been written off as ‘do not take any notice of results’), have shown just how UNSAFE aluminum is. The gradual aluminum buildup in the brain, leads to cognitive dysfunction. It is highly possible that this buildup causes neurological changes such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and autism. The huge increase of vaccines given to babies and children over the last ten years, and at such an early age, while their nerves are developing response patterns for future life means it can not be ruled out as one of the main factors that cause the increase in these illnesses. Aluminum is also known as a hormone disruptor and estrogen mimic.

What has brought us to the point where injecting our tiny babies with a dangerous array of toxic chemicals is seen as ok? The keyword is tiny. Tiny means underdeveloped, which means not yet formed, which means still forming, which means very vulnerable to anything that is not natural. Does somebody need to put these chemicals and their effects in front of people to pull the wool AWAY from their eyes? It seems to have the desired effect on reality ‘you are what you eat’ TV shows, that putting all of the yearly margarine, beer, chips and pizza that a person consumes in front of them, shocks them into realising just how much they are consuming. Test tubes could be filled with all of the toxic substances that go into a child’s body over the course of the immunisation schedule, or perhaps injecting baby mice in front of parents eyes with the same proportion of chemicals and watch the effects they have over the next year. Then maybe they will really see just how “safe” these chemicals are.

A disturbing flaw of mass vaccinations is the assumption that all children, regardless of age, should be treated the same. No consideration is given to the dosage, as relative to body weight. A two month old (weighing five kilos) receives the same dosage as a five year old (weighing 25 kilos with five times more body mass). I don’t know any medicine that does not take this into consideration. It’s completely illogical! My baby boy, my two and four year old girls, my 90kg husband and myself would all receive the same vaccine dosage! This REALLY does not sit well with me. You cannot tell me that my 90kg husband and his 9kg son would respond the same to these vaccine ingredients and that the chemicals in them would be absorbed passed through their bodies and excreted the same. NO WAY!

It is so important to know what the ingredients are in vaccines, to know what chemicals are being used and what the possible side effects these chemicals can have. Letting the wool be pulled over ones’ eyes by just viewing the needle as containing something that is going to ‘help my child or myself to possibly not get an illness’ is being naïve. You may want to have your head in the sand and not know what is inside that vial, or just take the word of your doctor or the nurse administering it, that it is safe. But do you really know? Have you done your own research? Think of your child, and think of their future, they deserve better than you just sitting back and HOPING that all is safe.

I will just leave you with a quote for food for thought:
“Aluminum is not perceived, I believe, by the public as a dangerous metal. Therefore, we are in a much more comfortable wicket in terms of defending its presence in vaccines”.
Dr John Clements, WHO vaccine advisor.
