Two New Articles About Mercury in Vaccines Raise Concerns About the Health Effects of Their Ingredients
The issue of whether to take a vaccine, whether to vaccinate children, and if so, which vaccine(s), is highly controversial.
The seasonal flu shot is one of the most controversial vaccines (Gardasil being another) on the market yet we see them being pushed by drug chain, pharmacy chains, and many doctors’ offices.
Being forthcoming, at best the effectiveness of a flu vaccine is a hit and miss proposition. Results from a major British medical journal, the Lancet, published the hit and miss rate for 9 out of 12 years in a study released in 2011. The numbers showed that only the seasonal flu vaccine only prevented the flu in 1.5 people out of 100. Even USA Today reported that after age 65 the flu vaccination had little or no value.
Being transparent I was one who used to get flu vaccines around the 2000’s at the encouragement of my Internist. After I got ill (see About Me), started developing neurological symptoms and learned that drug manufacturers still use mercury (thimerosal) as a preservative, I stopped.
Mercury is highly toxic to the neurological system. Even once when talking with a nurse promoting vaccines at Wal-Mart as to whether mercury was in the flu vaccine and whether it might aggravate my neurological system, even she advised against me taking the vaccine. (Think of that, when having the nurse examine the drug insert and quizzing her, and with her promoting the vaccine, she advised against it.)
Since I stopped getting the vaccination I have not had a single flu bout. And if for some reason I had a serious nausea and vomiting bout, I would first want whatever is bad out. Next I would just call my physician and get a prescription of Phenergan. (One of the biggest adverse reactions to the flu is dehydration.)
The more I research about vaccinations, the more I question the quality control. Because Congress, in creating a “vaccine court” has given pharmaceutical drug companies limited liability in answering for defective products (vaccines), including contaminated ones, what motivation does the drug companies have for the best quality control?
With each injection a tax is paid into the fund for victims (and there will be victims with adverse reactions, including major organ failure and death) the drug companies are absolved from liability.
We can’t expect the FDA to fix the problem. They’re like firemen showing up at a house already burnt down to the ground. It’s been acknowledged for years that the FDA is broken.
With the flu vaccines spotted history, would you be willing to take the shot, whether you or not you have a neurological condition, if you knew that there is more mercury in the vaccine in parts per million than the EPA allows in our water? Or what if other countries don’t allow their flu vaccines to have as excessive amounts per million of mercury as a preservative?
It’s important to read the following two articles. Do your own research about mercury in vaccines (thimerosal) as a preservative. Make an informed choice after you do the research because only you will have to live with the results, whether good, neutral or bad.
And whether you support vaccines or oppose them, don’t you think it is in the public’s interest to have the least contaminated formula or preservatives in the medicine? After all, flu shots containing mercury are being directly injected into humans. Think about it!
EXCLUSIVE: Natural News tests flu vaccine for heavy metals, finds 25,000 times higher mercury level than EPA limit for water
Tuesday, June 03, 2014 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
(NaturalNews) Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)
The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found in this flu shot was higher than anything we’ve ever tested, including tuna and ocean fish which are known for high mercury contamination.
In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we’ve ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally. As my previous research into foods has already documented, mercury consumed orally is easily blocked by eating common foods like strawberries or peanut butter, both of which bind with and capture about 90% of dietary mercury.
Addendum: Now if the EPA and the FDA advised pregnant women not to eat canned tuna because of the mercury within them and the risk to their fetus (which has approximately over 100 times LESS mercury than a flu shot) then why are they now encouraging them and the rest of the population to get mercury containing flu shots? What’s missing here from this picture?
Mercury in influenza vaccines found to be 100 times higher than Australian limit for complementary medicine
Thursday, June 05, 2014 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger Tags: thimerosal, vaccines, Australia (NaturalNews) As Natural News has exhaustively demonstrated this week via ICP-MS laboratory results and vaccine documentation, influenza vaccines manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline still contain 50 ppm mercury.
We find it interesting, therefore, that the Australian government’s limit on mercury in complementary medicines is set at 0.5 ppm, as described in this TGA document:
The document explains that “Incidental metals and non-metals” must be less than 5 ppm total, and mercury in particular must be under 0.5 ppm in order to meet the TGA’s “acceptance criteria.”
Yet influenza vaccines contain 50 ppm mercury — 100 times the Australian government’s limit of 0.5 ppm.
Document discusses need to remove mercury from vaccines
Australia is known globally as an aggressive vaccination-pushing nation which systematically suppresses the speech of anyone who dares question the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
