Most seasonal flu vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a deadly preservative that is 50 times more toxic than regular mercury. Most of the swine flu vaccines will also contain thimerosal, although they will reportedly make a limited number of doses available that are thimerosal-free (meaning 1 mcg or less).
If taken in high enough doses, thimerosal can result in long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions.
Disorders associated with mercury poisoning include:
• Attention deficit disorder
• Multiple sclerosis
• Speech and language deficiencies
It can also predispose adults to neurological problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
The Institute of Medicine has warned that infants, children, and pregnant women should not be injected with thimerosal, and yet the majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of it, and this year you and your children may be exposed to as many as FOUR flu shots in quick succession.
Meanwhile, the EPA “safe” level of mercury is only 0.1 mcg/kg per day.
But an overdose on thimerosal is not the only concern when it comes to flu vaccines. Other toxic substances found in various flu vaccines include:
• Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
• Triton X100 (detergent)
• Formaldehyde – a known cancer causing agent
• Resin and gelatin - known to cause allergic reactions
• Neomycin and streptomycin (antibiotics)
• Phenol (carbolic acid)
• Aluminum -- a neurotoxin linked to Alzheimer’s disease
• Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™) – which can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis
Many of the swine flu vaccines being manufactured will also contain dangerous adjuvants -- additives designed to generate a stronger immune response to the vaccine.
Novartis, for example, announced it is using the adjuvant MF59® in its swine flu vaccine. The MF59® adjuvant is oil-based and contains Tween80, Span85, and squalene. In studies of oil-based adjuvants in rats, the animals were rendered crippled and paralyzed, and squalene brought on severe arthritis symptoms.
In human studies, 10 to 20 ppb (parts per billion) of squalene had a severe immune system impact and caused the development of autoimmune disorders.
I recently posted an in-depth report on squalene. If you haven’t read this article, I suggest you do so now. It contains crucial information about the health risks associated with injections of vaccines containing squalene.
But despite all the existing evidence, the World Health Organization (WHO) is actually promoting and encouraging the use of oil-based adjuvants such as squalene. In a July 13 WHO swine flu pandemic briefing note, they state:
“In view of the anticipated limited vaccine availability at global level and the potential need to protect against "drifted" strains of virus, SAGE recommended that promoting production and use of vaccines such as those that are formulated with oil-in-water adjuvants and live attenuated influenza vaccines was important.”
Translation: WHO is now specifically recommending the production and use of vaccines containing oil-based adjuvants.
Also on July 13, HHS Secretary Sebelius committed another $884 million -- in addition to the $1 billion committed in May -- to purchase two key ingredients of the H1N1 vaccines under development, namely:
• The antigen (the active ingredient or organism)
• The adjuvant
Novartis, whose vaccine contains the squalene adjuvant MF59, will receive $690 million of the $884 million. So it stands to reason that the H1N1 vaccines will almost certainly contain squalene.
With Legal Recourse Removed, Freedom of Choice is Imperative
If you live in the US you can sign the petition to tell your congress person that you are STRONGLY opposed to forced vaccination. As long as the pandemic swine flu vaccine is not turned into a mandatory vaccine, you can elect to not take part in this mass experiment where you have no legal recourse should something go wrong.
Freedom of choice in this matter is of major importance!
I also urge you to visit the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) and join the fight against mandatory vaccination. You can also read about a proposed self-shielding/self-quarantine bill and send a message to your local legislator from the National Solutions web site.
