Background: Aluminium salts are the most common adjuvants in infant vaccines. The aluminium content of a vaccine is provided by the manufacturer and is indicated on the patient information leaflet. There is no independent verification, for example by the European Medicines Agency, of the aluminium content of infant vaccines.
Methods: We have measured the aluminium content of thirteen infant vaccines using microwave-assisted acid and peroxide digestion followed by transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry. Our data are compared with manufacturer’s data using full statistical analyses including Bayesian methods.
Results: We found that only three vaccines contained the amount of aluminium indicated by the manufacturer. Six vaccines contained a statistically significant (P < 0.05) greater quantity while four vaccines contained a statistically significant (P < 0.05) lower quantity. The range of content for any single vaccine varied considerably, for example, from 0.172 to 0.602 mg/vaccine for Havrix.
Conclusions: The data have raised specific questions about the significance of the aluminium content of vaccines and identified areas of extremely limited information. Since aluminium is a known toxin in humans and specifically a neurotoxin, its content in vaccines should be accurate and independently monitored to ensure both efficacy and safety.
Pregnant women here in NZ are being encouraged to take vaccines into their bodies, many containing the hazardous material mercury aka thimerasol, not to mention aluminum & other toxic substances, when they’ve not been tested on children or the unborn (ask to see the inserts &/or ask for the research that says it’s safe). It has all been okayed by the powers that be. Time to do your own thorough research folks. Babies’ brains are yet undeveloped in the womb. Why take the risk?

Dr. William Thompson used to work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US. The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older, but Dr Thompson admits he would never give his pregnant wife a flu shot because many contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing adjuvant that he warns can be linked to toxic effects and “autism-like-features.”
You can watch a video here, uploaded by the Autism Media Channel, of Dr. Thompson speaking very clearly about his concerns. The question is – why is this not in the mainstream media? The notion that a CDC official would make this statement is very interesting.
Dr. Thompson has co-authored papers on the subject that have shown up in the New England Journal of Medicine, one, for instance, titled, “Early Thimerosal Exposure and Neuropsychological Outcomes at 7 to 10 Years.” This paper was published in 2007.He has said, specifically:
“I don’t know why they still give it to pregnant women . . . That’s the last person I would give mercury to.”
He also states that:
“. . .tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism. . . There is biologic plausibility to say that thimersol is causing autism-like features.”
(NaturalHealth365) Aluminum in vaccines has long been suspected as one of the probable causes of autism. Now new research out of Keele University and Kings College Hospital in the UK is substantiating this suspicion. The researchers found significant amounts of aluminum in the brains of deceased persons who had been diagnosed with autism during their lifetime.
The records show that boys are 4.5 times more likely to have autism than girls.
The evidence is clear: Autistic individuals have high levels of aluminum in their brain
In past studies of the link between autism and the aluminum in vaccines, the researchers mainly tested hair, urine and blood samples for aluminum levels. For the current study, the researchers sought to test the brain tissue of deceased persons who had been diagnosed within the autism spectrum.
For this study, the brain tissue of 5 persons ranging in age from 15 to 50 was tested. The amounts of aluminum were found to be extraordinarily high as compared with people not diagnosed with autism. Abnormal amounts of aluminum were found in the cells of the vasculature, meninges and white and gray matter of all subjects tested.
And, this research was published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.
Babies injected with up to 500 times the amount of aluminum considered “safe” by the CDC
Health professionals and parents alike have railed against the addition of aluminum as an adjuvant (delivery mechanism) in vaccines for many years. The so-called “safe amount” of aluminum exposure for adult humans is 25 mcg, and just 10 mcg for infants.
Gulf war syndrome, which affects returning military veterans of the Persian Gulf War, is a cascade of conditions and symptoms including fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, rashes, night sweats, and other ills. Research scientist Dr. Vera Scheibner maintains that lupus, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and other life-threatening diseases can also result.
Over 250,000 of the 697,000 US veterans who served in the Persian Gulf are afflicted with the condition.
Gulf war syndrome linked to a toxic vaccine ingredient
Squalene was used as an adjuvant in compulsory anthrax vaccinations given to servicemen during the Gulf War. Adjuvants are substances added to vaccines to create a stronger immune response to the vaccine. The anthrax vaccines used an oil-in-water emulsion of squalene known as MF59.
