Vaccine Ingredients

March 29, 2008
Here’s a big, “did you know” for ya (I didn’t know all of these).

Here is what is put in vaccines:

Aborted fetal tissue (MRC-5) **No, I didn’t make this up, and I’m not going to elaborate. I will concede that fetal tissue is not used is all vaccines, others use chicken embryos or monkey kidney cells**

Aluminum **Research has linked Aluminum with Alzheimer’s**

Calf Serum **Human cells and tissue are grown in a culture form and in order for the cells or tissue to grow and proliferate, a source of nutrients, namely hormones and growth factors must be added. The usual supplement is fetal calf serum – also known as fetal bovine serum – a product that is cruelly derived from the fetuses of cows found pregnant at slaughter. Serum is blood without any cells, platelets or clotting factors and fetal calf serum especially, is considered to be a rich source of nutrients.

(How it’s collected)

After slaughter and bleeding of the cow at an abattoir, the mother’s uterus containing the calf fetus is removed during the evisceration process (removal of the mother’s internal organs) and transferred to the blood collection room. A needle is then inserted between the fetus’s ribs directly into its heart and the blood is vacuumed into a sterile collection bag. This process is aimed at minimizing the risk of contamination of the serum with micro-organisms from the fetus and its environment. Only fetuses over the age of three months are used otherwise the heart is considered too small to puncture.

Once collected, the blood is allowed to clot at room temperature and the serum separated through a process known as refrigerated centrifugation.

It remains questionable as to whether or not fetuses have already died from anoxia (deprivation of oxygen) prior to serum collection. Nevertheless, no anesthesia is given, despite their possible ability to experience pain and discomfort. **

Culture Medium Components **The liquid that covers cells in a culture dish and contains nutrients to feed the cells. Medium may also include other growth factors added to produce desired changes in the cells.**

formaldehyde **Formaldehyde is a very common and versatile industrial chemical. But, despite its usefulness, it is also one of the most hazardous chemicals in use today.

When inhaled, formaldehyde is highly irritating to the upper respiratory tract and eyes. Formaldehyde concentrations of 100 ppm is immediately hazardous to life and health.

Formaldehyde is an extreme skin irritant and can cause discoloration, hardening or tanning of the skin. Contact with the eyes, depending upon the concentration, can cause injuries ranging from discomfort to loss of vision.

Ingesting formaldehyde can cause reactions ranging from discomfort, to irritation and inflammation of the mouth, throat, and stomach, to severe stomach pains, or even death.

With formaldehyde, symptoms of exposure may not be immediately evident, or symptoms may develop over time.**

hydrolyzed gelatin **A break down of gelatin, pretty harmless**

lactose **A sugar derived from milk**

monosodium glutamate (MSG) **Do I really need to elaborate on this one??**

neomycin **An antibiotic (?) – Neomycin may cause damage to the kidneys and/or nerves. Kidney function and drug levels in the blood may be monitored with blood tests during treatment. Tell your doctor if you experience decreased urination, hearing loss, ringing in the ears, feeling of fullness in the ears, dizziness, numbness, skin tingling, muscle twitching, or seizures which may be signs of kidney or nerve damage.**

phenol **Poisoning can occur when phenol gets on the skin or in the eyes, when it is inhaled, or when it is swallowed. Skin and eyes can be mildly or severely burned, depending on how much and how long the phenol was in contact with them. Breathing phenol vapors can burn the lining of the nose, throat, and lungs, just as it burns the skin. Severe injury to the lungs can cause them to fill with fluid, making breathing difficult. Swallowing phenol burns the lining of the digestive tract and can result in internal bleeding. Generally, the more serious the exposure, the more severe the symptoms. Phenol is absorbed easily into the body through the skin, lungs, and stomach. The brain is very sensitive to phenol. Phenol can cause seizures and coma and may interfere with the brain’s control of regular breathing patterns. It can cause dangerous rhythm changes in the heart.**

streptomycin **is an aminoglycoside antibiotic. It is for treating certain bacterial infections, such as tuberculosis, rabbit fever (tularemia), plague, and infections of the heart (bacterial endocarditis). This drug in only available from your prescriber, who decides if you meet certain criteria for the use of this drug. Generic streptomycin injections are available.

Side Effects:
•difficulty hearing
•loss of balance
•nausea, vomiting
•muscle weakness or tiredness
•pain or difficulty passing urine
•pain or swelling at the injection site
•ringing in the ears
•skin rash, itching and pain**

sucrose **Sugar**

thimerosal (49.6% mercury) **Mercury – nuff said**

yeast **A fungus, commonly used in bread and beer.**

Okay, one could argue that there are trace amounts of each ingredient in each vaccine. But, I’m going to ask why is any amount acceptable?

    This is great information. I’m still on the fence on when I will start immunizations for Dawson. Thanks for blogging about it.
