(NaturalNews) Have you ever wondered what's really in vaccines? According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control's vaccine additives page, all the following ingredients are routinely used as vaccine additives:

Aluminum
Antibiotics
Formaldehyde
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Thimerosal

What's really in vaccines? Proof of MSG, formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury

============================

Please read the side effects in terms of what these chemicals can do to the human body. Then, try to contemplate the absolutely, non-existent level of care for basic human health in this country by both the FDA, and Big Pharma.



I am a pharmacist,total bs.

They have used Thimersol in the past and may still do for a few vaccines....alot have been removed.
They have found NO link between thimersol and autism.....yet.
Aluminum has been postulated to possbly causing ALzeheimers,but your soda can might have more AL in the contents!
Formaldehyde is/was used as preservative for animal/plant cadavers or tissues and still is.

No bloody antibiotics in vaccines. Sulfa is the only one I can think of,that is used a lot as a good persavative,but its a small amount.

They do use agents to retent potency and extend expiration date. Doses are low.



MSG is mostly in food preservation(esp Chinese etc,but they have cut back too).
I have the 'Bible' on injectable drugs and have been using it for 20+ years,don't tell me all that information is hogwash or whitewashed to push vaccines.

Like to see how many people would still be around or not disable without vaccines????

The good they do outweight the bad by a long way....statistics dont lie.

The Island Where People Forget to Die

A Greek island known for uncommonly long life spans.


Quoting 
(NEWSER) – Stricken with cancer and given six months to live, a Greek man living in America moved back to his native island of Ikaria—where the cancer mysteriously disappeared. The tale has become folklore on the Greek island, where stories of good health date back 25 centuries.

Quoting 
I had one last question for him. How does he think he recovered from lung cancer?

“It just went away,” he said. “I actually went back to America about 25 years after moving here to see if the doctors could explain it to me.”

I had heard this part of the story before. It had become a piece of the folklore of Ikaria, proof of its exceptional way of life. Still, I asked him, “What happened?”

“My doctors were all dead.”

To say that is is total BS is to call me a liar.

No actually you are brainwashed and what you are spouting is "total BS".

To say that Mercury is safe -one of the most toxic chemical known to man - shows your ignorance and sell-out to big Pharma. Mercury is a known neortoxin.

It is and was totally needless to add it as a presevative to vaccinations. There are many other choices. As evidenced by your own admission that they have taken it out of many vaccines from public pressure.
It is still in the flu shots.

Lies to sell drugs are part and parcel of your lucrative trade.

You know nothing of health and have never studied nutrition.

For 50 years the medical community suppressd the link between smoking and lung cancer.
They paid off doctor to publish quack medicine studies.
They said "there is no proof".
They lie through their teeth.

When sued for billions for lung cancer it came to light that executives of the major tobacco companies knew of the connection told each other in company memos.

Just imagine doctors dong a study that "proved" the linkage between injecting known poisions into people and causing diseases and ailments such as autisim. Who is going to do the study that shows them guilty of crimes worth billions of dollars of damage?

Where is the ethics of injecting known toxins into people for the study?
Who is going to be the control group and who will be injected with mercury?
Will it be the babies of doctors and pharmacists?
Don't make me laugh.!!

No matter how strong the statistical linkage they will argue it isn't "proof".

Doctors and pharmacists support a world-wide trade in sickness and disease promotion.

I've only been twice to the doctor in 25 years both times for antibiotics.
Once for the prevention of lyme disease after a tick bite and once for an inner ear infection.
For the inner ear infection the MD wanted to give me a CT scan for brain tumors!!![I replied "let's try the anitbiotics first."
- sound reasonable, sound like something the MD should have said?

If I had said "I have an earache - it may be brain cancer - I want a CT scan " -- the MD would have said
""Let's try the anitbiotics first. before moving to something as serious as a CT scan."



Just imagine telling someone you might have a brain tumor based on an earache !!!!!!!!
(see the previous post about needless CT scans causing cancer).

They hate healthy people like me.

They HATE informed public catching them in their lies.


Pharmacists know very well just how toxic mercury is.
Pharmacists also know very well that formaldehyde is a carcinogen.

Even though they know the dangers of these products - they will say "That is total BS."
Ask yourself
- what is the motivation of some who knows it is a carcinogen lying and saying it is fine?Could it be to spread uncertainty and doubt (both tools of Satan by the way).

This just goes to show how the pervayers of death, disease and drugs - will do to protect their money machine.

Just remember the next time a pharmacist or doctor puffs up and says:
"I'm a pharmacist - and there is no proof"
"I'm a doctor - and there is no proof"

Ok here is your "proof"

" On 10 June 2011, the US National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as "known to be a human carcinogen".[5][6][7]
Formaldehyde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Canada the warning insert in cigarrette package lists formaldehyde as one of the carcinogens in cigarrettes.


--- said by Jesus about priests, Pharisees ------
And they tell lies and know not the truth for there is no truth in them.
They are the sons of the evil one and do as their father.

Good trading to everyone.

Neurotoxin

Neurotoxin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurotoxin

Blood brain barrier
Aluminum

Neurotoxic behavior of aluminum is known to occur upon entry into the circulatory system, where it can migrate to the brain and inhibit some of the crucial functions of the blood brain barrier (BBB).[40] A loss of function in the BBB can produce significant damage to the neurons in the CNS, as the barrier protecting the brain from other toxins found in the blood will no longer be capable of such action. Though the metal is known to be neurotoxic, effects are usually restricted to patients incapable of removing excess ions from the blood, such as those experiencing renal failure.[67] Patients experiencing aluminum toxicity can exhibit symptoms such as impaired learning and reduced motor coordination.[68] Additionally, systemic aluminum levels are known to increase with age, and have been shown to correlate with Alzheimer’s Disease, implicating it as a neurotoxic causative compound of the disease.[69]

Mercury

Mercury is capable of inducing CNS damage by migrating into the brain by crossing the BBB.[41] Mercury exists in a number of different compounds, though methylmercury (MeHg) is the only significantly neurotoxic form.[41] MeHg is usually acquired through consumption of seafood, as it tends to concentrate in organisms high on the food chain.[70] It is known that the mercuric ion inhibits amino acid (AA) and glutamate (Glu) transport, potentially leading to excitotoxic effects.[71]

Health Hazards (306) Mercury - A Deadly Poison (12)
Date Posted : Source Date :
Nov 6, 2012 Oct 9, 2012
October 09 2012

By Dr. Mercola

Mercury has no place in anyone's body, let alone a child's.

As you're probably aware, mercury is a neurotoxin, exposure to which is linked to brain and nervous system damage, kidney damage, autoimmune and other health effects.

Children, including those still developing in the womb, are most at risk because of their small size, their more permeable blood-brain barriers and the fact that they're detoxification systems are not yet capable of effectively removing toxic challenges.

Now new research is highlighting the very real risks that occur when this toxic metal is ingested.

Mercury From Seafood Linked to ADHD

Inuit children in northern Quebec, Canada, eat a diet rich in beluga whale meat, which is typically contaminated with high levels of mercury. After analyzing umbilical cord blood from nearly 300 children, and years later getting detailed information about their behavior, researchers found those with the highest concentrations of mercury had more trouble paying attention – and were three times as likely to display symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – than those with lower levels.1

Those with low to moderate lead levels were also more than four times as likely to have hyperactivity problems than kids with lower levels (Inuit children are exposed to lead from eating shot pellets in geese and ducks).

Separate research has also revealed that babies exposed in the womb to higher levels of mercury, due to their mom's fish-rich diet, scored lower on skills tests when they became infants and toddlers.2 So it's quite clear that this toxin has a serious impact on your brain function...

Where are the Warnings About Mercury Dental Fillings?

If the presence of mercury in seafood and skin cream is tied to concerning study results and warrants urgent warnings from the FDA and other groups, why does the agency refuse to address concerns about placing 1-2 grams of dental amalgam, half of which is mercury, into the mouths of children and pregnant women?

The FDA admits that amalgam could be dangerous for children and that there is no evidence that it is safe for them. Buried deep in the FDA's 2009 amalgam rule, FDA concedes "The developing neurological systems in fetuses and young children may be more sensitive to the neurotoxic effects of mercury vapor. Very limited to no clinical information is available regarding long-term health outcomes in pregnant women and their developing fetuses, and children under the age of six, including infants who are breastfed."3

Nonetheless, in 2006, 2009 and 2010, the FDA ignored its expert panelists' recommendations that mercury fillings should not be used in children and pregnant women. They actually ruled there would be no warnings to patients, not even young women and parents of young children, that the mercury in the fillings is a dangerous reproductive toxin and a neurotoxin.

They even gave the amalgam industry the green light to sell and use amalgam (mercury) fillings without disclosing to consumers that the fillings are mainly mercury, even though the agency is aware of the industry's long-time deceptive practice of marketing amalgam as "silver fillings."

In 2011, the FDA then reneged on its promise to re-examine the mercury amalgam issue and make an updated announcement by year's end; no announcement was made, and there are no plans for an announcement in the future. The World Health Organization (WHO) is calling for a switch away from amalgam in its mercury report,4 but the FDA is still failing to act -- even though dental amalgam is far from an essential dental product; it's interchangeable with many other filling materials that do not have the toxic profile amalgam has.

There is overwhelming evidence showing mercury from dental fillings to be easily released in the form of vapor each time you eat, drink, brush your teeth or otherwise stimulate your teeth.

This mercury vapor readily pass through cell membranes, across your blood-brain barrier, and into your central nervous system, where can cause psychological, neurological, and immunological problems. In the United States, children and pregnant women continue to have their health and the health of future generations put at risk because the FDA is failing to protect them.

The WHO report also included mention of the known toxic effects of mercury exposure, including in its inhaled vapor form, stating:

"Mercury is highly toxic and harmful to health. Approximately 80% of inhaled mercury vapor is absorbed in the blood through the lungs, causing damages to lungs, kidneys and the nervous, digestive, respiratory and immune systems. Health effects from excessive mercury exposure include tremors, impaired vision and hearing, paralysis, insomnia, emotional instability, developmental deficits during fetal development, and attention deficit and developmental delays during childhood."

Why are Mercury Fillings Still on the Market?

Amalgam fillings contain more mercury than any other product sold in the United States. And they are highly profitable to dentists, which makes them that much harder to remove from the marketplace. Dentists who are inexperienced with mercury-free fillings can install amalgam fillings much faster than the primary alternative, which is composite fillings. Wherever healthcare budgets are tight, people in need of fillings are given amalgams. Low-income people, people in third-world countries, and even our soldiers get mercury fillings—even the pregnant ones—because they "cost less" to install.

But with all that is known about the dangers of mercury, why are we still implanting this neurotoxin just inches from our brains? Why haven't mercury fillings been removed from the market altogether? This is a very good question, and one that has NOT been answered by the FDA, according to Charlie Brown, executive director of Consumers for Dental Choice. Charlie Brown has been a champion in the battle to get mercury banned from dentistry.

Important Information Regarding Amalgam Removal

For those of you who have mercury fillings, I recommend that you have them removed … but avoid making the mistake I did nearly 20 years ago by having it done by a non-biological dentist. When you have these fillings removed you can be exposed to significant amounts of mercury vapor if the dentist doesn't know what he or she is doing. It's also for this reason that I strongly suggest you get healthy BEFORE having your fillings removed, as you want your detoxification mechanisms optimized prior to removal.

My struggles with my own teeth led me to learn about and embrace biological dentistry, also known as holistic or environmental dentistry.

In a nutshell, biological dentistry views your teeth and gums as an integrated part of your entire body, and any medical treatments performed takes this fact into account. The primary aim of holistic dentistry is to resolve your dental problems while working in harmony with the rest of your body. Biological dentists are well aware of the dangers involved with toxic materials such as mercury fillings (aka amalgams). Some things that need to be done to keep you (and your dentist) safe during amalgam removal include:

Providing you with an alternative air source and instructing you not to breathe through your mouth
Using a cold-water spray to minimize mercury vapor
Putting a rubber dam in your mouth so you don't swallow or inhale any toxins
Using a high-volume evacuator near the tooth at all times to evacuate the mercury vapor
Washing your mouth out immediately after the fillings have been removed (the dentist should also change gloves after the removal)
Immediately cleaning your protective wear and face once the fillings are removed
Using room air purifiers

How to Find a Qualified Biological Dentist

If you're taking the steps to protect your children from mercury exposure by limiting their consumption of contaminated seafood, you certainly would not want to have mercury fillings implanted directly into their mouths. Knowledgeable biological dentists, who will be familiar with using the many alternatives to amalgam, can be hard to come by, so start your search by asking a friend, relative, neighbor, or inquire at your local health food store. The following links can also help you to find a mercury-free, biological dentist:

Consumers for Dental Choice
International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine (IABDM)
Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions (DAMS). E-mail them at: dams@usfamily.net or call 651-644-4572 for an information packet
Huggins Applied Healing. You'll need to fill out a form and they will connect with you to find a suitable dentist in your area

Europe-wide ban on Monsanto GM corn -link to cancer

Europe-wide ban on Monsanto GM corn imminent in wake of French study linking it to cancer
Health Freedom Natural News :: HFNN.CA ::

Category : Topic :
GMO Hazards & Solution (24) Press Releases & Good Articles (194)
Date Posted : Source Date :
Oct 5, 2012 Oct 4, 2012

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

Pending affirmation by its national health agency, France is expected to call for an official ban on Monsanto's genetically-modified (GM) corn very soon "at a European level," according to the French news source RFI. Following the recent release of a University of Caen study that found a link between the "Frankencorn" and the development of severe tumors in rats, French officials have been urging a Europe-wide ban on both the cultivation and import of the GM corn, which was never proven safe in the first place prior to its commercial release.

The study, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, revealed for the first time that rats fed Monsanto's NK603 GM corn treated with Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide for longer than 90 days developed deadly tumors at a much higher, and much quicker, rate than rats not exposed to these products. Similar health consequences were observed in rats fed NK603 GM corn without Roundup, as well as in rats exposed to just Roundup, revealing more about the true toxicity of these two highly-pervasive food technologies.

What the study suggests, in other words, is that GMOs are far from innocuous, and that they pose some very serious health threats when consumed for long periods of time. Since there have never been any other long-term studies on the safety of GMOs -- and definitely none that have ever proven them to be safe -- it makes logical and scientific sense to adopt the precautionary principle in light of the available evidence, which is heavily stacked against the continued purveyance of GMOs.

"'Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GMO food,' including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system," says the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT). "The AAEM (American Academy of Emergency Medicine) asked physicians to advise patients to avoid GM foods."

And this latest study out of France only affirms what groups like IRT have been warning about for years -- that GMOs are not safe, that independent research clearly illustrates their potential health risks, and that no long-term safety studies have ever definitively proven that GMO consumption is safe or beneficial to human health.

"While previous studies have usually lasted only about three months, Seralini's (French GMO study) lasted two years, the average rat's lifespan, and the illnesses developed later in the period covered," says RFI.

Flu shots- Mercury based thimerosal

Flu shots triple hospitalization rates in children - but don't expect any straight answers from the government
Health Freedom Natural News :: HFNN.CA ::

by Craig Stellpflug

Mercury based thimerosal is used as a preservative to "kill organisms." Aren't humans organisms? You have to be unconscious, brainwashed or just plain stupid to allow this into your or your child's body. The majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury, an amount considered unsafe by the EPA for anyone weighing less than 550 pounds. Now then, take the two-shot recommendation and you receive 50 micrograms of toxic mercury. Have you ever met an 1,100 pound pregnant lady or baby? But Big Pharma money talks louder than dead babies, so go ahead, get your toxic flu shot.

The U.S. government can't even agree among its own agencies about toxic mercury-based thimerosal used in vaccines. The Institute of Medicine advises that mercury-containing vaccines should NOT be injected into pregnant women, infants and children because of thimerosal's harmful effects on the immune, metabolic and nervous systems which has been widely documented.

But that's not what the hired gun Dr. Jay Lieberman told the CDC. Lieberman has been a consultant to Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Sanofi-Pasteur, and is on the speakers' bureau for all three vaccine-makers. All three of these Big Pharmas are currently using thimerosal in their products and Lieberman made a presentation to the CDC, ignoring the bulk of peer-reviewed research, but rather touting a small number of industry-backed, highly criticized and flawed epidemiological studies that cited no harmful associations.As far back as July 7, 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the United States Public Health Service (PHS) issued a joint statement that because of the "neuro-developmental effects posed by exposure to thimerosal...thimerosal-containing vaccines should be removed as soon as possible." This has not been done to date. Mercury levels have been lowered in some infant vaccines but according to Dr. Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, mercury is still present in all child vaccines.

Even a question and answer segment on the CDC website back in 1999 goes thusly: "Q: Who is most vulnerable to mercury? A: Two groups are most vulnerable to methyl mercury: the fetus and children ages 14 and younger." Of course, this contradictory embarrassment has been long-since removed from the CDC website but is easily found on other websites like: Vaccine_Pregnancy

Children who receive the flu vaccine have three times the risk of hospitalization for flu

In a study to determine if flu vaccines reduced hospitalizations in all children, children were evaluated at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota from six months to 18 years of age, all of whom had prior laboratory-confirmed influenza. It was found that vaccinated children had three times the risk of hospitalization compared to unvaccinated children along with a significantly higher risk for hospitalized-vaccinated asthmatics. Children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than ones who do not get the vaccine, according to research presented at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego.

Should you get a flu shot or not?

If you had your flu shot last year, you are twice as likely to contract swine flu this year according to a Canadian study and William Douglass MD. Pandemrix caused a 17-fold increase in narcolepsy among flu-vaccinated children in one study and Dr. Hugh Fundenberg and colleagues discovered that people at 55 years of age who receive the flu vaccine each year for five years in a row, increase their risk of developing Alzheimer's disease a whopping 1,000 percent. Another study published in The Lancet reported that flu vaccines do nothing in 98.5 percent of adults but do cause neurological disorders in 7.5 percent of vaccinated people.

There is no proof that flu vaccines drop the level of flu occurrence but there is proof that they cause side effects and harm, but the choice is still yours. Make an informed one.

Then again, I suppose when we're talking about Big Pharma, anything goes, especially when money is involved. As you and I both know, as soon as a drug has the potential to rake in millions, patient safety is the last thing on Big Pharma's mind.

Big profits were no doubt the motivation behind GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK) blatant bribery of doctors to prescribe Paxil to children. In fact, the drug giant went so far as to fly psychiatrists and their partners to five-star hotels on all-expenses-paid trips, where speakers (who were paid up to $2,500 to attend) gave presentations on the drug.

Doctors who attended these 'scientific meetings' were given $750, free board and lodging and access to activities including snorkelling, golf, deep-sea fishing, rafting, glass-bottomed boat rides, hot-air balloon rides and, on one trip, a tour of the Bacardi rum distillery... and those who agreed to write extra prescriptions enjoyed further kickbacks including trips to resorts in Bermuda, Jamaica and California.

That's despicable!

But wait, there's more...

GSK even went so far as to publish an article in a medical journal that alluded to Paxil's safety for children, despite the journal asking several times for the misleading wording to be changed. Even though GSK knew that three trials had failed to prove the drugs' effectiveness in children, they still went ahead and published a report entitled "Positioning Paxil in the adolescent depression market – getting a head start"... Copies of the misleading article were given to sales representatives to pass on to doctors, in the hope that it would secure more business.

The more the merrier

An investigation found that GSK also paid $275,000 to Dr. Drew Pinsky, who hosted a popular radio show in the US, to promote another of their 'adults only' antidepressants, Wellbutrin, on his programme. GSK also claimed it could treat weight gain, sexual dysfunction, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and bulimia... and those are exactly the unapproved uses Dr. Pinsky promoted on his radio show.

As if that wasn't enough, GSK launched their bestselling asthma drug, Advair, to sales representatives in Las Vegas using images of slot machines, emphasising the bonuses they could make through sales. At the event, the then chief executive, Jean-Pierre Garnier, said: "What is the number one reason why you should love to be a GSK sales rep? Advair's bonus plan. Yeah!"

GSK pushed the drug as the ultimate answer for tackling asthma, saying it should be the drug of choice for treating all cases. However, it had been approved only for treating severe cases, as other drugs were more suitable for mild asthma. GSK published material calling mild asthma a "myth" in an attempt to boost sales.

What's even more shameful is the fact that after GSK admitted corporate misconduct over all three drugs, they walked away with nothing but a slap on the wrist in the form of a $3bn fine... which is nothing compared to the profits GSK made from Paxil ($11.6bn), and Wellbutrin ($5.9bn) in 2000-2001 — the years covered by the settlement.

I am truly at a loss for words...

Good trading to everyone.
