Read The Ingredients!
This is an important injunction, particularly when we consider what vaccines are made of. Most Americans know about Thimerosal. But few know that aluminum is now being added to a number of vaccines to make them "work better." The FDA has made the limits of ingestion clear on its website which documents aluminum toxicity from the dextrose patients receive in hospitals when they are hooked up to IV's. No studies have been done to determine what the effects of the aluminum in vaccines are, especially when given to infants.
Dr. Robert Sears, a pediatrician, researched the dearth of information in his article,Is Aluminum the New Thimerosal?(click herePrimun Non Nocere. Although the FDA requires that all injectable solutions be limited to 25 mcg, the load of aluminum for infant vaccines is often 10 times as high.
"In other words, a newborn who gets a Hepatitis B injection on day one of life would receive 250 mcg of aluminum. This would be repeated at one month with the next Hep B shot. When at two months, a baby gets his first big round of shots, the total dose of aluminum could vary from 295 mcg"to a whopping 1225 mcg" These doses are repeated at four and six months"But the FDA recommends that premature babies and anyone with impaired kidney function, receive no more than 10 to 25 mcg of injected aluminum at any one time."
He goes on:
"As a medical doctor, my first instinct was to worry that these aluminum levels far exceed what may be safe..."
That instinct was correct, but because he had been trained to trust the AMA and the FDA, his second instinct, which was wrong, was to assume that the issue had been thoroughly researched and resolved. His third instinct, which proved disappointing at the least, was to search for the studies that supported that assumption. He foundnone.
Aluminum--the New Thimerosal
The AmericanAcademy of Pediatrics did publish a policy statement in 1996 that alerted us to the fact that aluminum is a known danger to human neurology (and we can assume to other mammals as well) and that the threshold of aluminum is far lower than what is currently being used. But that doesn't seem to hold any sway over the pharmaceutical companies who are not only selling the product but funding the research.
Gardasil, the latest must-have vaccine for young women who are now being told to be afraid of cervical cancer, has just been forced to update their label warning to include expanded risks for those "immunized." These include seizures, miscarriages, genital warts, and Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disease that can result in permanent paralysis. In their ads, Merck has even said it will not necessarily prevent many types of cervical cancer.
Why, if the evidence is so scanty, the research so distorted or unavailable, do we continue to vaccinate?
