Did you Know?

  • 1 shot can contain multiple antigens.
  • If a vaccine series is started, there are requirements for when the booster shots must be given, or schools may not consider the immunization complete.
  • Titers can be drawn prior to immunization to determine if vaccination is necessary, but may not be accepted as proof of immunity in all states.

If I gave my child the toxins contained in vaccines to eat, I would be arrested for child endangerment. Why is the government allowed to give them those same toxins which, in conjunction with live viruses, overwhelms the immune system causing damage to a young body and brain? This is an ineffective delivery method for developing immunity, as well. We BREATHE in viruses and our immune system recognizes them that way.
The same dose of Hep-B vaccine is given to 10-pound babies and 6-pound babies in the hospital. How does this make sense?!?
The more I discover, the more I want these people arrested! Both in government and the pharmaceutical companies. They’ve known the issues since 2000 and chosen to hide the facts while protecting their own families!

Uh, you already do give them most of the “toxins”. There is aluminum in almost every food you eat, even organically grown. There is more formaldehyde in an apple or egg than the vaccine schedule. There are no fetal cells in vaccines – the 2 fetal lines used to obtain the 2 viruses are from the 1960s. Vaccines are not 100% safe. Some people shouldn’t be vaccinated. But most people can be.

And before you ask: yes, I am fully vaccinated, as are my 2 daughters. Even HPV (their choice – I didn’t decide for them).

When food and various toxins are taken orally, they pass through the gastrointestinal tract, where it is broken down and filtered by the liver and kidneys and then excreted. These chemical toxins are not as harmful to a child’s immune system when they are ingested as it is when they are injected into their muscle or bloodstream. Some of these chemicals have been known to pass the blood/brain barrier which makes them very dangerous.

Yes, but eating something isn’t the same as injecting it into your body. It’s in different form. Your body processes it differently. Learn the facts and educate yourself first!

Aluminum in vaccines -which is injected- is not the same as injesting aluminum. Very little aluminum is aborted through the gut. Furthermore, vaccines contain polysorbate 80- an imulsufier. Polysorbate 80 is also used in chemo drugs to get them to cross the blood brain barrier. Therefore aluminum in vaccines – which in the case of infants is always above the ‘safe limit’ of aluminum set by the FDA (5 micro grams per kilogram of body weight per day) crosses the blood brain barrier without restrictions. The situation is not present with food.

You should look at the ingredient lists for MMR II, some hep B, some polio, all chicken pox, all hep A vaccines. They all show the human cell lines from fetal tissue. In addition, the CDC website will tell you that vaccines in general may contain human DNA.

Yes, Melissa, I have done extensive research and I have found the same information. I think parents need to start reading and researching instead of believing everything they are told.
