Presented in the simplistic, antagonistic, vacuum in the middle way the media presents all material
*The authority wearing the white coat, with his stethoscope prop says, ‘vaccines are wonderful’
(Don't believe my prop comment, check many of the vaccine promoting images- middle age male- father/grandfather figure- white coat or stethescope prop- the photos are staged for maximum appeal)
*The so called anti-vaxxers wearing their tin foil hats say- there are problems, risks, that they don’t want to expose their precious babies to.
The anti-vaxxers are often presented via the blonde bimbo Jenny McCarthy- She doesn't speak for them, she speaks for herself, but sadly that is generally what is presented- It informs the readers that people who question vaccines are dumb, uneducated, ill informed because they get their news from a hollywood bimbo
*Then there are the terrified children:
|No concern for them- Just fear. To the point of terror- Look at that child's face.|
Today, I want to look at the vaccine issue in combination with the Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals or EDC''s as part of my Chemical Manipulation of Humanity Series
Not my headline- Could Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals in Vaccines Cause Autism?
My headline- Could Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Vaccines create disease/disorders, not limited to Autism? To which I would have to answer- Yes!
I would answer yes for the obvious fact that vaccines contain several endocrine disrupting chemicals: EDC's- Mercury, Aluminum, Formaldehyde, probably others, but, I will address just these three Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in combination with one another in more then one of the multitude of vaccines children are injected with
Let’s read some of the linked article?
“Environmental "triggers," including endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), is an area in which autism organizations are seeking to encourage further research and it continues to be under-studied as a mechanism of autism causality.
So how should we study a potential link between EDCs and autism?
Perhaps this is too obvious, but why not examine what most normally developing children who are later diagnosed with autism have in common? Why not study the EDCs in childhood vaccines?
That's right, most vaccines contain aluminum adjuvants used to increase immune response, and aluminum is an endocrine-disrupting chemical. Like it or not, vaccines are likely the largest source of one-time exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in early infant development.
In addition, some vaccines still contain mercury as a preservative, and mercury is also a known EDC as well as a developmental neurotoxin. The seasonal influenza vaccine contains as much as 25 mcg of mercury, exceeding federal safety guidelines established by the EPA.
There is a long list of research demonstrating mercury's effect as an endocrine-disrupting chemical, as referenced in the paper authored by Dr. Tan of the EPA in March 2009 (Tan, Shirlee W., Meiller, Jesse C. and Mahaffey, Kathryn R., "The endocrine effects of mercury in humans and wildlife," Critical Reviews in Toxicology,39:3,228-269).
The start of the autism epidemic correlates closely with the phased introduction of the Hib vaccine plus the HepB vaccine in the late 1980's/early 1990's. At that time, both the Hib and the HepB contained high amounts of mercury and aluminum which significantly increased the exposure to infants to both of these toxic chemicals at a far earlier age than ever before (HepB: at birth and then 1-2, 4, and 6 months; Hib: 2, 4, and 6 months).
Although mercury has been reduced or removed in some vaccines since 2003, mercury is still a component in most flu vaccines. The number of infant vaccines with aluminum-based adjuvants administered by 18 months of age has increased by 54% since 2000, and the amount of aluminum administered has increased by 23%.
In an article for Mothering Magazine, Dr. Bob Sears warned about the aluminum content found in infant vaccines:
"In other words, a newborn who gets a Hepatitis B injection on day one of life would receive 250 mcg of aluminum. This would be repeated at one month with the next Hep B shot. When, at two months, a baby gets its first big round of shots, the total dose of aluminum could vary from 295 mcg (if a non-aluminum HIB and the lowest-aluminum brand of DTaP are used) to a whopping 1225 mcg (if the Hep B vaccine is given along with the brands with the highest aluminum contents). These doses are repeated at four and six months. With most subsequent rounds of shots, a child would continue to get some aluminum throughout the first two years. But the FDA recommends that premature babies, and anyone with impaired kidney function, receive no more than 10 to 25 mcg of injected aluminum at any one time."So, within months of your child's birth he or she could be injected with aluminum totalling 295 micrograms to quantities as high as 1225 mcgs- Considering it is the small quantities of EDC's that make the poison - what appears to be a tiny quantity of aluminum can wreak havoc for one tiny baby and one developing brain- Don't you think?
Recall? : The Low Dose Makes the Poison- EDC's & the Chemical Manipulation of Humanity
Interestingly, Dr. Karp also refers to how slightly elevated levels of testosterone in fetuses have been linked to autism, and that autism-type disorders are four to nine times more common in boys. So there you have it, aluminum and mercury are both endocrine disrupters, as well as neurotoxins, and both can be particularly toxic when exposed to testosterone.Yes, aluminum and mercury are both endocrine disruptors. And they are often combined with formaldehyde, another EDC, into an injectable endocrine disrupting formula. Of course aluminum, mercury and formaldehyde alone aren’t the only problems in this cocktail of toxins. In fact the cocktail of chemicals may exacerbate the very problem caused by these chemicals. So let's talk synergy- we have to consider what happens when the aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde cocktail injected into your child’s body mixes it up with all the other EDC’s your child is exposed to on a daily basis-
Fluoride, another EDC works with aluminum against humanity-
It seems fluoride works synergisticly with aluminum to make the harmful affects of aluminum worse- Thimerasol and aluminum also work together to make more mercury available to destroy your healthy brain and body‘aluminum at levels found in vaccines dramatically enhanced the toxicity of thimerosal and mercury cation thereby decreasing the level of mercury required to have the toxic effects."
Many U.S. licensed children's vaccines contain aluminum, including:
DTaP (diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis) vaccine
Hepatitis B vaccines
Hepatitis A vaccines
Some Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b) conjugate vaccines
Human Papillomavirus vaccine
Prevnar (Pneumococcal) vaccine
Tdap (tetanus-diptheria-acellular pertussis) adolescent vaccine
In June, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) issued a report reviewing the Centers for Disease Control's Immunization Safety Office Draft Research Agenda. The NVAC report identified critical gaps in vaccine safety research and made sweeping recommendations -- one of those critical gaps -- data on simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines.
There is a growing recognition that even small amounts of endocrine-disrupting chemicals can have a deleterious affect on the development of the fetus, infants and young children. It is logical that we include the EDCs used in vaccines, along with other neurotoxins, and consider, as Dr. Karp suggests, the "cumulative stress" these chemicals might create.
The author of the HuffPo piece only addresses the autism aspect of endocrine disrupting chemicals in vaccines- From what I have read thus far- Autism, a neurological disorder, is not the only problem that needs addressing regarding the use of multiple endocrine disrupting chemicals in a vaccine stew, of questionable value, particularly when one considers the entire spectrum of diseases, brought on by our repeated exposure to Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

Also: regarding aluminum content in childhood vaccines (Canada)
The only adjuvants (allegedly) used in CHILDHOOD vaccines in Canada are aluminum salts (aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, or potassium aluminum sulfate.)
Caveat: 'No vaccine contains animal or human cells, or human blood or serum"
That's false: Rotavirus vaccines in Canada and the US ,likely elsewhere, contain Porcine DNA- that's Pig DNA in plain language -WHO
That has been previously covered here at the blog
And if you think that animal contamination, pig in this case, is a first?
Think again- SV-40 in the polio vaccine- That is simian virus
