Vaccine Ingredients and Vaccine Secrets
By Sarah C. Corriher
There has been much recent concern regarding giving vaccines to children and the related side effects. Particularly concerning is the link between early childhood vaccines and autism. What follows will be a list of known ingredients inside vaccines, and their documented side effects. It will aid you in making informed decisions, which is something that the industry seems to be against. The corporations involved have attempted to suppress this information for decades. Readers are advised that there are additional chemicals and toxins not mentioned, because we had to base this list upon ingredients that are already public knowledge. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made every attempt to suppress the disclosure of vaccine ingredients, much of the information herein was released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
The connection to autism has already been repeatedly established, and there are many other conditions caused by vaccines. Permanent paralysis (Guillain Barré syndrome) is surprisingly common, for instance. Vaccines are said to prevent certain diseases. However, the chance of catching these diseases is incredibly remote, and the horrid side effects from vaccines are so common that vaccines overall cause much more harm than good. The chance that a particular vaccine will actually offer protection varies between 35% and 90%, and almost all of them lose effectiveness over time. In some cases, vaccines infect patients with the very diseases that they were meant to offer protection from, because they utilize live viral strains.
“A single vaccine given to a 6 pound infant is the equivalent of giving a 180 lb. adult 30 vaccines in one day.”
— Dr. Boyd Haley
Vaccine Ingredient: Aborted Baby Fetus Tissue and Human Albumin
Did you ever wonder if aborted babies were sold to the pharmaceutical industry? Now you know. From a health perspective, the tissues from another human are foreign tissues, and therefore toxic to the body. One industry-friendly web site matter-of-factly boasted:
“The cells reproduce themselves, so there is no need to abort additional fetuses to sustain the culture supply. Viruses are collected from the diploid cell cultures and then processed further to produce the vaccine itself”.
The Liberty Counsel reported:
“You may be surprised to learn that some vaccinations are derived from aborted fetal tissue. Vaccines for chicken pox, Hepatitis-A, and Rubella were produced solely from aborted fetal tissue”.
Vaccine Ingredient: Formaldehyde
This ingredient is used in vaccines as a tissue fixative, and as a preservative. Formaldehyde is oxidized in the human body to become formic acid. Formic acid is the main ingredient of bee and ant venom. Concentrated, it is corrosive and an irritant. While absorbing the oxygen of the body, it may lead to acidosis, nerve, liver and kidney damage. According to the National Research Council, fewer than 20% but perhaps more than 10% of the general population may be susceptible to extreme formaldehyde toxicity, and may violently react to exposure at any level. Formaldehyde is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds on ecosystems and human health, according to the Environmental Defense Fund. These findings are merely for environmental exposure, and therefore, the dangers are much greater with the formaldehyde included in vaccines, since it is injected directly into the blood. The known effects of environmental formaldehyde exposure are:
- Eye, nasal, throat and pulmonary irritation
- Acute sense of smell due to altered tissue proteins
- Antibodies formation
- Blood in urine
- Blurred vision
- Body aches
- Bronchial spasms
- Burns nasal and throat
- Cardiac impairment
- Palpitations and arrhythmias
- Central nervous system depression
- Changes in higher cognitive functions
- Chemical sensitivity
- Chest pains and tightness
- Chronic vaginitis
- Corneal erosion
- Destruction of red blood cells
- Difficulty concentrating
- Ear aches
- Emotional upsets
- Ethmoid polyps
- Fecula bleeding
- Foetal asphyxiation
- Flu-like or “common cold” illness
- Frequent urination with pain
- Astrointestinal inflammation
- Haemolytic anaemia
- Haemolytic haematuria
- Hyperactive airway disease
- Hypomenstrual syndrome
- Immune system sensitizer
- Impaired (short) attention span
- Impaired capacity to attain attention
Inability or difficulty swallowing
Inability to recall words and names
Inconsistent I.Q. profiles
Inflammatory diseases of the reproductive organs
Aches and swelling
Loss of memory
Loss of sense of smell
Loss of taste
Menstrual and testicular pain
Muscle spasms and cramps
Crusting and mucosa inflammation
Numbness and tingling of the forearms and finger tips
Pale clammy skin
Partial laryngeal paralysis
Post nasal drip
Reduced body temperature
Retarded speech pattern
Ringing or tingling in the ear
Sensitivity to sound
Short term memory loss
Shortness of breath
Vaccine Ingredient: Mercury
Mercury compounds are used in vaccines as preservatives. The toxicity of mercury has been repeatedly ignored in the area of vaccines by the medical establishment and oversight agencies. Mercury is the second most poisonous element known to mankind (second only to uranium and its derivatives). Brain neurons rapidly and permanently disintegrate in the presence of mercury within 30 minutes of exposure. Mercury is also known to change a body’s chromosomes.
The U.S. Government has known about the potential problems of thimerosal (the mercury-containing preservative) for many years. The World Health Organization expressed concerns about it in 1990.
Mercury is a cumulative poison, which means the body has difficulty removing it, and that levels of it in the body will accumulate significantly over time. Large amounts of mercury can accumulate over a lifetime. During a typical day of routine vaccines, infants sometimes receive the same amount of mercury as the absolute maximum set by the World Health Organization for 3 months of adult exposure.
The following was taken from a website affiliated with the National Institutes of Health:
“Symptoms of high exposure to this class of mercury based compounds includes: Aphthous, Stomatitis, Satarrhal gingivitis, nausea, liquid stools, pain, liver disorder, injury to the cardiovascular system and hematopoietic system, deafness and ataxia. Death. Headache, paresthesia of the tongue, lips, fingers and toes, other non-specific dysfunctions, metallic taste, slight gastrointestinal disturbances, excessive flatus and diarrhea may occur. Acute poisoning may cause gastrointestinal irritation and renal failure. Early signs of severe poisoning include fine tremors of extended hands, loss of side vision, slight loss of coordination in the eyes, speech, writing and gait, inability to stand or carry out voluntary movements, occasional muscle atrophy and flexure contractures, generalized myoclonic movements, difficulty understanding ordinary speech, irritability and bad temper progressing to mania, stupor, coma, mental retardation in children, skin irritation, blisters and dermatitis. Other symptoms include chorea, athetosis, tremors, convulsions, pain and numbness in the extremities, nephritis, salivation, loosening of the teeth, blue line on the gums, anxiety, mental depression, insomnia, hallucinations and central nervous system effects. Exposure may also cause irritation of the eyes, mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract.”
Complete intolerance to thimerosal is known to develop from previous vaccines. The vaccines stimulate the immune system and cause a sensitization. The neurologic symptoms caused by mercury compounds have a delayed onset after exposure, so few, if any of these symptoms will be noticed at the time of exposure. The mercury of vaccines causes long-term neurological symptoms like learning disabilities and behavior disorders, which did not exist in previous generations.
Vaccine Ingredient: Antifreeze
Antifreeze (ethylene glycol) is an ingredient of the polio vaccine. It is classified as a “very toxic material”. It would take less than a tablespoonful to kill a 20-pound dog with this substance. Pet owners are generally cautious with this dangerous substance, knowing that only a small amount is fatal. For humans, it is directly injected into the blood through vaccinations.
Antifreeze exposure can lead to kidney, liver, blood and central nervous system disorders. It is quite harmful and likely fatal if swallowed. Effects include behavioral disorders, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, visual disturbances, thirst, convulsions, cyanosis, rapid heart rate, depression, cardiopulmonary effects, and kidney disorders. It can also lead to liver and blood disorders. It produces reproductive and developmental effects in experimental animals.
Vaccine Ingredient: Aluminum
Aluminum is a carcinogen. It is a cardiovascular (blood) toxicant, neurotoxicant, and respiratory toxicant. It has been implicated as a cause of brain damage, and is a suspected factor in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, convulsions, and comas. It has been placed on at least 2 federal regulatory lists. It is well known in alternative medicine as a toxic and accumulative heavy metal.
Vaccine Ingredient: 2-Phenoxyethanol
This is a carcinogen. It is a developmental and reproductive toxicant. It is also a metabolic poison, which means that it interferes with the metabolism of all cells. This is the primary factor in the formation of cancer cells. It is capable of disabling the immune system’s primary response. It also contains phenol (see below).
Vaccine Ingredient: Phenol
This is a carcinogen, and a cardiovascular and blood toxicant. It is also known as carbolic acid. It is a developmental toxin, gastrointestinal toxin, liver toxin, kidney toxin, neurotoxin, respiratory toxin, skin and sense organ toxin. It has been placed on at least 8 federal regulatory watch lists.
Vaccine Ingredient: Methanol
This is a volatile, flammable, poisonous liquid alcohol. It is used as a solvent in industry, and as an antifreeze compound in fuel. In the body it is metabolized into formaldehyde (described earlier). Whilst it can be found naturally in the pectin that is present in some common fruits, the naturally-occurring variant is only in minute quantities, and the organic form is not known to cause any harmful effects.
Vaccine Ingredient: Borax (sodium tetraborate decahydrate)
This was traditionally used as a pesticide. It is suspected to be a cardiovascular toxicant, blood toxicant, endocrine toxicant, gastrointestinal toxicant, liver toxicant, and neurological toxicant. It was found to cause reproductive damage and reduced fertility in rats. It is already banned in foods in the United States, due to its toxicity; but astonishingly, it is still allowed for direct injection into the blood through vaccines. It is toxic to all cells, and it has a slow excretion rate through the kidneys. Kidney retention and toxicity are the greatest. It has a cascading effect after causing kidney impairment, causing liver degeneration, cerebral edema, and gastroenteritis.
Vaccine Ingredient: Glutaraldehyde
Glutaraldehyde is always toxic, causing severe eye, nose, throat and lung irritations, along with headaches, drowsiness, and dizziness. The effects mirror the chemical warfare agent known as nerve gas. It is poisonous if ingested, and it is known to cause birth defects in experimental animals. The effects of direct injection into the blood to bypass the process of digestion are unknown. It is often used to clean medical equipment. In hospital accidents involving environmental exposure, it has been known to cause the following symptoms:
- Throat and lung irritation
- Breathing difficulty
- Nose irritation, sneezing, and wheezing
- Burning eyes and conjunctivitis
Rash-contact and/or allergic dermatitis
Discoloring skin (brownish or tan)
Vaccine Ingredient: Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Monosodium glutamate is a flavor enhancer. In a 1995 report by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, two groups of people were defined as intolerant of MSG. This includes those who eat large quantities of MSG and those with “poorly controlled asthma”. Our research indicates that anyone can suffer after consuming monosodium glutamate; especially if they are deficient in either taurine or magnesium. In the 1995 report, which was contracted by the F.D.A., there was public admission that MSG yields the following symptoms:
Burning sensation in the back of the neck, forearms and chest
Numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back
Tingling, warmth, and weakness in the face, temples, upper back, neck and arms
Facial pressure or tightness
Bronchospasms (difficulty breathing)
Note that this is the short list (the one with side effects that the F.D.A. actually admits) and it does not consider the higher toxicity of direct injection into the blood. The long list, which is 15 times longer, includes heart attacks. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in rapid damage to nerve cells in the brain. MSG is in a special class of chemicals called excitotoxins, which are known to directly attack brain cells. In 1978, MSG was banned from baby foods and other baby products that were produced for children who were less than one year of age, because the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Academy of Sciences expressed concerns. It is now being used in these products again, in addition to being added to childhood vaccines.
Vaccine Ingredients: Sulfate and Phosphate Compounds
These can trigger severe allergies in children, which may last throughout their lives to permanently impair their immune systems.
Vaccine Ingredient: Ammonium Sulfate
This is yet another carcinogen. Ammonium sulfate is prepared by mixing ammonia with sulfuric acid. It is used as a chemical fertilizer for alkaline soils to lower the pH. In the body, it stresses the immune system by causing acidosis. Ammonium sulfate is also a liver toxicant, neurotoxicant, and respiratory toxicant.
Vaccine Ingredient: Gentamicin Sulfate
This is a strong antibiotic that is often used for life-threatening illnesses like pneumonia. The known side effects follow:
- Muscle twitching
- Elevated blood pressure
- Purpura P
- Pseudotumor cerebri
- Photosensitivity when used topically
- Transient irritation
- Vesicular and maculopapular dermatitis
- Bacterial/fungal corneal ulcers.
- Nonspecific conjunctivitis
Conjunctival epithelial defects
Eyelid itching and swelling
Vaccine Ingredient: Neomycin Sulfate
We can only speculate about what damage this causes when injected directly into the blood of infants. It interferes with vitamin B-6 absorption, which is the cause of a rare form of epilepsy, and mental retardation. Adult patients given neomycin as an antibiotic are typically placed under close clinical observation (e.g. hospitalized), so that intensive care intervention is immediately available. Neurotoxicity has been reported, along with nephrotoxicity, and permanent bilateral auditory ototoxicity. Sometimes vestibular toxicity is present in patients with normal renal function when treated with higher or longer doses than recommended.
Vaccine Ingredient: Tri(n)butylphosphate
This is yet another carcinogen. This is a kidney toxicant and a neurotoxicant. It is more hazardous than most chemicals in 2 out of 3 ranking systems. It is on at least 1 federal regulatory list.
Vaccine Ingredient: Polymyxin B
This is another antibiotic. Injection of this is generally avoided by doctors (except in the case of vaccines) due to “severe pain at injection sites, particularly in infants and children”.
Known side effects:
- Facial flushing
- Dizziness progressing to ataxia
- Peripheral paresthesias (circumoral and stocking-glove)
- Signs of meningeal irritation with intrathecal administration
Vaccine Ingredient: Polysorbate 20 / 80 Emulsifier
This is a known skin and sense organ toxin. It is verified as a cancer agent in animals.
Vaccine Ingredient: Sorbitol (Sweetener)
Diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy may be related to excess sorbitol in the cells of the eyes and nerves, leading to blindness. This is another suspected carcinogen. Sorbitol is a gastrointestinal and liver toxicant.
Vaccine Ingredient: Polyribosylribitol
This is an experimental artificial sweetener. The experimentation is ongoing in children, without the knowledge or consent of their parents.
Vaccine Ingredient: Beta-Propiolactone
Documented as a verified carcinogen. It is a gastrointestinal and liver toxicant, respiratory toxicant, skin toxicant, and sense organ toxicant. It is more hazardous than most chemicals earning a 3 out of 3 in ranking systems. It appears on at least 5 federal regulatory lists. It is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds to humans.
Vaccine Ingredient: Amphotericin B
This can cause irreversible kidney damage, and liver dysfunction. It has been known to produce severe histamine (allergic) reactions. There are several reports of anemia and cardiac failure. It is used to treat fungal infections. Other side effects include blood clots, blood defects, kidney problems, nausea, and fever. When used on the skin, allergic reactions can occur.
Vaccine Ingredients: Animal Organ Tissue and Animal Blood
Animal cell lines are used to culture the viruses in vaccines, so animal tissues and impurities are included in the formulation that is injected. Animal tissues are unusable and toxic to the body except for when their protein materials are digested to form amino acids through normal food consumption. There is no digestion process for injections. Injections may also contain many types of animal viruses (see the Animal Viruses section). Animals used include monkey (kidney), cow (heart), calf (serum), chicken (embryo and egg), duck (egg), pig (blood), sheep (blood), dog (kidney), horse (blood), rabbit (brain), and guinea pig.
Vaccine Ingredient: Large Foreign Proteins
In addition to the animal tissue impurities, there are large proteins that are deliberately included, and used for such purposes as adjuvants (substances that aggravate an immune response using their inherent toxicity). Egg albumin and gelatin (or gelatine, obtained from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, demineralized cattle bones and pork skin) are in several vaccines. Casein (a milk protein) is in the triple antigen (DPT) vaccine. When injected, these normally harmless proteins are toxic to the body. Hence the immune system “response”. The immune system is intentionally stressed by this invasion to produce an unnatural sensitization to all of the ingredients. This explains why bizarre allergies such as lactose intolerance, along with egg and nut allergies have suddenly become common in recent history.
Vaccine Ingredient: Latex
Latex is included in the hepatitis B vaccine, which is routinely given to health workers. The high occurrence of latex allergies among nurses is due to their sensitization to latex through the large amount that is injected into them. These vaccines produce a panicked immune response. The nurses will suffer with this allergy permanently. Such allergic reactions can be life-threatening. The hepatitis B vaccine is now routinely given to newborn babies in many countries, including Australia and the United States.
Vaccine Ingredient: Animal Viruses
Some of these can be particularly alien to the human body. The most frequently documented and publicized example is the monkey virus SV40. The virus is harmless in monkeys, but it stimulates rare cancers when injected into humans to produce brain cancer, bone (multiple myeloma), lungs (mesothelioma), and lymphoid tissue (lymphoma). Monkey virus SV40 has only appeared in people born in the last 20 years (The Journal of Infectious Diseases, Sept. 1999), long after the manufacturer claimed to have “cleaned up” the polio vaccines where it was initially found. Such cases include the late Alexander Horwin, whose parents tested negative for SV40. Therefore, recent cases cannot just be blamed on inheritance from parents who received the vaccine. Manufacturers are secretly including the virus again.
Vaccine Ingredient: Human Viruses
The live viruses found in some vaccines are frequently said to be killed, inactivated, or attenuated. This is a myth. The main method used to inactivate viruses is treatment with formaldehyde. Its effectiveness is limited and temporary. Once the brew is injected into the body, the formaldehyde is broken down: potentially releasing the virus in its original state. It is documented in orthodox medical literature that the “crippled” viruses can revert to their former virulence.
The viruses and bacteria included in vaccines are claimed to be in very small volume. However, these quantities are high enough for the diseases to occur in some people. Most of the diseases that people are vaccinated against no longer occur in the Western world, and only ever result from the vaccines. When they do occur, the vaccine-induced cases are always more severe than normal infections of the same pathogens, and these cases are sometimes fatal. Deaths have been reported in the British medical journal, Lancet, from vaccine-induced yellow fever. A susceptible person may succumb to infection when exposed to only a minute dose, especially when it is injected directly into the bloodstream. Conversely, there are other cases in which a healthy person will not succumb, even when exposed to large doses environmentally. It is not the pathogens, but the interaction methods between pathogens and hosts which causes diseases to appear, and ultimately determines their severity.
Most disease symptoms are the visible signs of a body’s attempts to defend itself against infections. With disease injections, many important defenses in the digestion path and mucous membranes are bypassed.
Vaccine Ingredient: Mycoplasma
These are microscopic organisms lacking rigid cell walls and they are considered to be the smallest free-moving organisms. Many are pathogenic, and one species is the cause of mycoplasma pneumonia which interestingly, is noted to occur only “in children and young adults”, according to Mosby’s Medical Dictionary. This is not simply in vaccines by accident. It is deliberately added as an adjuvant (to increase the immune system’s allergic response) to the vaccine.
Vaccine Ingredient: Genetically-Engineered Yeast
This is in the hepatitis B vaccine. Given the controversy over the ingestion of genetically modified foods, how much more dangerous could the direct injection of them be?
Vaccine Ingredient: Foreign DNA
DNA is used from such organisms as animals, viruses, fungi, and bacteria. It has been documented that injecting foreign DNA can cause it, or a portion of it, to be incorporated into the recipient’s DNA. The horrendous long-term multi-generational implications defy the imagination.
The human body has never experienced such a direct invasion as this before. We hope that you consider this list, and the side effects of vaccines, before giving your child vaccinations. We have strong reasons to believe that overall, the risks of horrible and long-term side effects far outweigh the risks of the diseases which vaccines are supposed to prevent.
Human blood is supposed to be, and traditionally was, remarkably sterile. There were few bacteria or organisms present in the bloodstream. With vaccines now being so prevalent, this is no longer the case. Contrary to what we have been told, they weaken the immune system dramatically instead of strengthening it. In the United States, the hepatitis B vaccine is given to a child on the day of his birth, often weakening his immune system for his lifetime. His small body is just becoming accustomed to the germs around him for the first time, and he needs the strong immune system that he was given to remain intact.
