Vaccines are a potent cocktail of ingredients that most people take
without thought or hesitation. I am thankful that my wife started the
research that eventually lead us to the decision to no longer vaccinate
our children. As such, I thought some would benefit from our findings
and help you understand why we don’t vaccinate. Here is a list of some
common ingredients found in vaccinations:
Found in: DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), Biothrax (anthrax),
DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), IPOL (polio), Tripedia (tetanus)
While it is safe to assume everyone knows that formaldehyde is a bad
thing, I thought it necessary to back it up with a list of the dangers.
Studies have shown that short term exposure to the chemical produced
burning sensations in the eyes, nose, and throat; wheezing; nausea.
Research has also been done that suggests it is linked to cancer in
nasal sinuses, nasopharnyx, brain and possibly leukemia. In 1987, the
EPA classified it as a possible human carcinogen.
Found in: DTaP, DPT, Energix-B (hepatitis B), FluShield (influenza, flu
shot), HiB Titer (influenza), Menomune (meningococcal), Rabbies
vaccine, Recombivax (hepatitis B), Tripedia
Thimerosal is used as a preservative in most vaccines. The major
concern with its use is the high concentration of mercury, which has
been linked to mental disorders. Several alarming studies showed a
significant increased odds ratio for autism, mental retardation, speech
disorder, personality disorders, and thinking abnormality in children
who received thimerosal-contained vaccines as opposed to those who did
not. This is a huge controversy in the medical world, as other research
suggests there is not a link between the two. It is also interesting to
note that ethylene glycol, also known as anti-freeze, is a major
component of the chemical makeup of thimerosal.
Found in: Dryvax (smallpox), Imovax (rabbies), NYVAC (smallpox), Pneumovax (streptococcus), Typhim Vi (typhoid)
Also known as carbolic acid, it is often used in weed killers and
disinfectants. In some cases, it can be used to clean wounds. However,
it is considered extremely toxic if digested.
Human Diploid Cells
Found in: Biavax (Rubella), Havrix (hepatitis a), Imovax, MMR, M-R-vax,
ProQuad (MMR), RotaShield (rotavirus), Varivax (chicken pox)
This is more of an ethical concern than a health concern. Basically, a
human diploid cell is one in which two chromosomes (one from each
parent) are present. The bad news is that some pharmaceutical companies
are extracting these from aborted fetuses such as the WI-38 and the
It is also alarming to note that in 1986, Congress passed the National
Childhood Vaccine Act which set up a fund to reimburse parents who lost
their children due to vaccinations and effectively shielded
pharmaceutical companies from being sued. I can’t imagine the guilt of
losing my child because I let someone inject them with micro-doses of
We also see a rise in super virus strands such as the
ever-evolving flu virus. The U.S. Center for Disease control has noted
that the flu vaccine has become increasingly ineffective. This is
because the flu viral strands are adapting, becoming stronger. I
personally attribute this to the mass inoculations that people often
take without regard.
My whole point is that I want you to make informed decisions. I would
question every thing the doctor prescribes so that you can make an
educated decision about what you allow in your body and your childrens’
