Formaldehyde in Vaccines

Formaldehyde in Vaccines 
toddler boy and vaccine "Current methods used to inactivate living pathogens in vaccine production involve the use of chemical agents such as formaldehyde or beta-propiolactone to chemically modify the genetic material of the pathogen. However, there is substantial evidence that both of these agents are human and animal carcinogens. 

For example, studies in rats exposed to formaldehyde by inhalation have shown that formaldehyde induces squamous-cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity. Additionally,
 formaldehyde has been shown to be genotoxic in vitro and in vivo. Both genotoxicity and cytotoxicity play an important role in the carcinogenicity of formaldehyde

Although the concentration of formaldehyde in vaccines is typically low (below 0.02%),
this represents up to 50-100 micrograms of formaldehyde per injected dose in many vaccines...Particularly dangerous is the amount of formaldehyde that is injected into infants and small children during the course of multiple vaccinations. While the amount of formaldehyde in each vaccine dose is low, the combined amount can become substantial."  

 

Comment: 

According to Manuel's Web0.02% is 0.2 mg or 200 mcg, making the sum total of formaldehyde in anthrax vaccines even larger and more disconcerting.

 

Vaccines that contain formaldehyde include nearly all pediatric and adult flu shots; all forms of pediatric and adolescent pertussis vaccines (DTaP and the teen version, Tdap); and injectable polio vaccines (IPV) vaccines. Vaccines given under special circumstances also contain formaldehyde: tetanus boosters (dT, DT and TT), Japanese encephalitis vaccine, rabies vaccines and anthrax vaccine (given as six doses).

 

 

 Let's add up the amount of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, is injected into children by the time they are five years of age. Assuming they get all doses of all recommended vaccines on time and according to the 2012 vaccination schedule:

  • Hepatitis b - 3 doses x 15 mcg each
  • DTaP - 5 doses x 100 mcg each
  • Polio (IPV) - 5 doses x 200 mcg each
  • Influenza - 6 doses x 25 mcg each
  • Hepatitis A - 1 dose x 100 mcg each

Total: 1,795 mcg = 1.795 milligrams

 

Through sloppy and negligent math, lawmakers and manufacturers failed to identify that infants received as much as 87.5 micrograms of mercury (thimerosal) by six months of age. Again, through sloppy and negligent math, lawmakers and manufacturers fail to throw up a red flag regarding the large amount of formaldehyde injected into young bodies with developing brains, neurological systems and organs.

I've thought this many times when I read the pro-vax reasoning that toxins are in such small amounts that it is unlikely dangerous. When you add up the amount of toxins of ALL the vaccines given, it is no longer a small amount!
