3 ICKY FACTS ABOUT VACCINES

Fact #1.
According to the(Centers for Disease Control) website, many vaccines that are presently recommened for children still have known neurotoxins such as Thimerisol & Aluminum. Thimerisol, a known neurotoxin is also still present in many vaccines that are labeled "Thimerisol Free". It's kind opf like calling a cookie 'fat free'. It is not actually free of fat. Rather, it contains a trace amount which the FDA has deemed 'passable' for the fat-free label. Such is the case with Thimerisol in Vaccines. The 'Thimerisol Free' label does not necessarily mean that there is no ethylmercury in the shot. It just means it has the FDA's stamp of approval.

Aluminum in the bloodstream is bad news. High accumulation of aluminum has been repeatedly found in the blood of alzheimer's patients. Recent studies even indicate that aluminum may have a causal relationship with Alzheimer's, but more studies need to be done. More info here:

*It is also noteworthy that Dr. Bernard Rimland, the world's pioneer for Modern Autism Research, believed that Alzheimer's is a form of adult Autism.

Formalin (aka Formaldehyde, think about that pig brain you saw in Biology 101) is also used as a preservative in children's vaccines. Formalin is used to embalm humans prior to burial. It is also important to note that Formaldehyde is classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and a probable human carcinogen by the US Environmental Protection Agency. (wikipedia) And yet, we inject this into our children, and expect it to be safe...right.



Fact #2.
Vaccines require a culture medium to create the vaccine. According to the CDC, some of the mediums currently used for our children's vaccines are Aborted Human Fetal Tissue (Human Diploid Cells); Monkey Kidney Tissue; Chick embryos; Chick Kidney cells...to name a few. Seeing that Stem Cell research is getting so much attention from the Conservative right, I am very surprised that drug companies have been able to keep vaccines under the radar.

Fact #3
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the gold standard for many doctors and parents alike, Chicken Pox can be expensive and inconvenient, so the Chicken Pox (Varicella) vaccine is warranted to prevent such problems. Since when is it wise to make health care decisions based on what is inexpensive and convenient?

It scares me to death every time I take Olivia to the Dr. to have her shots. She just had her 6 months shots and I questioned her Dr. big time. He just sort of blew it off.
