Vaccines and their Ingredients What are we putting into our children?

31 Jul


Vaccines What are we really putting into our children? Do we know? I mean really know? Or are we just “following the rules”?

Most people think they MUST put vaccines on our children because we have to if we want them to go to school. Other people believe in them for “protection against viruses”. But do we really know what is going on and what is put in these vaccines? I had no idea about this, all I knew was that it had side effects of fever, diarrhea, runny nose, excessive sleeping, child irritability and change in behavior, swelling of the injected area and redness of the injected area. This was always my entire life led to believe was a “normal reaction” to the vaccine. Why is that normal? None of this is normal. Our parents didn’t know the difference but now I’m here to open your eyes. It is definitely too late for us but not for our babies and children. If you have already given your baby/child vaccines well what is done is done but it’s not too late unless they got them all already. I must admit I did start my son on some of the vaccines but now that I am aware of what is in them he will never get one again! How will I do that? Well there are places in your city where you can go to do this. It is a “Religious Exemption From Immunization” form. Go to an Immunization Clinic and tell them you want this form. They will ask you questions and tell you all the “terrible things that can happen to a child that is not vaccinated” just say “I am aware and due to my religion I do not wish for my child to be vaccinated” I say this in advance before you see the ingredients after my explanation. Try and see a holistic pediatrician in your area to care for your child. You only get one opportunity in each child’s life to do this if you choose too. Make sure you get 3 copies of this form, one for your keeping, one for your pediatrician and one for the school/day care. What do you do to maintain a healthy child with no immunization? Keep a healthy diet is crucial especially now with all the GMO’s, hormones, pesticides and antibiotics put into foods. Especially the mystery meat we get at a convenient fast food restaurant. If you believe in chiropractic go get adjusted to keep your spine in line so it boosts your immunity and you stay healthy. If you need a reference or information about this go to if you are in the area they may help you, if not go to a chiropractor that does the same thing. Another good source of knowledge is from There is a video clip there that if you order it, it will show you a lot more information about vaccines and different scenarios and you can make your decision then. I hope you find this research helpful for the health of your children. If we share knowledge then our eyes are open and we are able to make healthy decisions on our own instead of just “following the rules”. My husband’s friend has a little girl and one day he took her in for a regular vaccine. She was a normal healthy little girl. When she got the vaccine (it will stay anonymous) within 24 hours he saw his precious little girl change right in front of him to a child with autism. Now I’m not saying that vaccines cause autism. What I am saying is that if your child has a gene that if triggered by a certain chemical or ingredient in a vaccine then that can cause the child’s genetic make up to change and turn autistic or have addhd or anything else. The problem is that you don’t know until it’s too late. So it is really up to you and what you think after reading this information if you want to take the risk or not. At least if you choose to move forward with this you are well aware of what you are putting into your child, so God forbid if anything goes wrong you fully understand why. Maybe with this knowledge there will be lass children with cancer by the age of 2 and any other diseases that are caused by poison.   Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary Excipients Included in U.S. Vaccines, by Vaccine   This table includes not only vaccine ingredients (e.g., adjuvants and preservatives), but also substances used during the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media, that are removed from the final product and present only in trace quantities. In addition to the substances listed, most vaccines contain Sodium Chloride (table salt).   Last Updated September 2013 All reasonable efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of this information, but manufacturers may change product contents before that information is reflected here.  If in doubt, check the manufacturer’s package insert.

Product Possible Ingredients*
2-Phenoxyethanol 2-Phenoxyethanol is a glycol either used as a preservative in vaccines
 Aluminum Aluminum is used in vaccines as an adjuvant, which helps the vaccine work more quickly and more powerfully.
 Bovine casein A casein is a family of phosphoproteins commonly found in mammalian milk. 80% of the proteins in cow’s milk are casein.Bovine serum       Bovine “[s]erum is the centrifuged fluid component of either clotted or defibrinated whole blood. Bovine serum comes from blood taken from domestic cattle. Serum from other animals is also collected and processed but bovine serum is processed in the greatest volume.””Bovine serum is a by-product of the meat industry. Bovine blood may be taken at the time of slaughter, from adult cattle, calves, very young calves or (when cows that are slaughtered are subsequently found to be pregnant) from bovine fetuses. It is also obtained from what are called ‘donor’ animals, which give blood more than once.   Blood is available from bovine fetuses only because a proportion of female animals that are slaughtered for meat for human consumption are found (often unexpectedly) to be pregnant.   Blood is available from very young calves because calves, especially males from dairy breeds, are often slaughtered soon, but not necessarily immediately, after birth because raising them will not be economically beneficial. Older animals are, of course, slaughtered for meat.   Only donor cattle are raised for the purpose of blood donation. Donor cattle are invariably kept in specialized, controlled herds. Blood is taken from these animals in a very similar way to that used for human blood donation.       Irrespective of whether blood is taken at slaughter or from donors, the age of the animal is an important consideration because it impacts the characteristics of the serum.   Bovine serum is categorised according to the age of the animal from which the blood was collected as follows:

  • ‘Fetal bovine serum’ comes from fetuses
  • ‘Newborn calf serum’ comes from calves less than three weeks old
  • ‘Calf serum’ comes from calves aged between three weeks and 12 months
  • ‘Adult bovine serum’ comes from cattle older than 12 months

Serum processed from donor blood is termed ‘donor bovine serum’. Donor animals can be up to three years old.”
