I’d like to chime in, because I think vaccines are bad as well.
Here are some common ingredients found in vaccines:
-Aluminum gels or salts of aluminum which are added as adjuvants to help the vaccine stimulate a better response. Adjuvants help promote an earlier, more potent response, and more persistent immune response to the vaccine.
-Antibiotics which are added to some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs (bacteria) during production and storage of the vaccine. No vaccine produced in the United States contains penicillin.
-Egg protein is found in influenza and yellow fever vaccines, which are prepared using chicken eggs. Ordinarily, persons who are able to eat eggs or egg products safely can receive these vaccines.
-Formaldehyde is used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines, (these are vaccines that use an inactive bacterial toxin to produce immunity.) It is also used to kill unwanted viruses and bacteria that might contaminate the vaccine during production. Most formaldehyde is removed from the vaccine before it is packaged.
-Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and 2-phenoxy-ethanol which are used as stabilizers in a few vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when the vaccine is exposed to heat, light, acidity, or humidity.
-Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative that is added to vials of vaccine that contain more than one dose to prevent contamination and growth of potentially harmful bacteria.
Floggi, if you can show us how these ingredients are good for us, please show us studies.
Additionally, here are 21 pages of side effects from vaccines:
Influenza vaccine side effects:
A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.
Serious problems from inactivated influenza vaccine are very rare. The viruses in inactivated influenza vaccine have been killed, so you cannot get influenza from the vaccine.
-soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
-hoarseness; sore, red or itchy eyes; cough
If these problems occur, they usually begin soon after the shot and last 1-2 days.
Young children who get inactivated flu vaccine and pnemococcal vaccine (PCV13) at the same time appear to be at increased risk for seizures caused by fever. Ask your doctor for more information.
Tell your doctor if a child who is getting flu vaccine has ever had a seizure.
Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot.
In 1976, a type of inactivated influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to GBS. However, if there is a risk of GBS from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination.
And here are the top vaccine stories from 2011:
-Japanese children die from vaccines
-U.S. government recruits churches to push flu shots on congregation members
-Top CDC vaccine scientist indicted for fraud
-IOM admits MMR vaccines cause seizures and measles
-CDC openly admits flu vaccines don’t work
-Merck vaccine scientist Dr. Maurice Hilleman admits vaccines contain cancer-causing viruses
-HPV vaccines found contaminated with HPV!
-Swine flu vaccine admittedly causes neurological disorders
-Science says flu vaccines only work on 1 out of 100
-Hallmark caught distributing flu shot compliance cards to new moms
I can bust out studies too by the cochran institute. Have you seen those?
Also floggi, did you know there has never been a single long term study that analyzes long term health effects from the vaccines on humans?
