The Case Against Aluminum in Vaccines

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, and scientific evidence shows that it can play a significant role in neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson's disease.

For example, a case study from Keele University in the UK published last year unequivocally showed high levels of aluminum in the brain of an individual exposed to aluminum at work, who later died from Alzheimer's disease.

Most people are not exposed to toxic levels of aluminum at work however. Rather exposure occurs via common products such as antiperspirants, food, aluminum-based household products, and vaccines.

According to some experts, including Dr. David Ayoub, whom I've interviewed on this topic, and Dr. Suzanne Humphries, featured in the video above, aluminum in vaccines may pose very significant health risks.

Dr. Humphries has written one of the best books (Dissolving Illusions) out there documenting the historical framework of why vaccines have been an overhyped miserable failure. The book is loaded with hundreds of references, many of which document the vaccine failures.

The toxicity of aluminum—found in a number of common childhood and adult vaccines—may even exceed the toxicity of mercury in the human body.

"Even if vaccines can prevent some infections, considering what's in them, there's no way they can improve overall health," Dr. Humphries says. "And now they want to give vaccines to pregnant women, which in addition to these animal cells and associated genetic material also have aluminum in them."

Aluminum Is Toxic to All Life Forms

In 2013, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's (CHOP) vaccine education center website stated that:

"Aluminum is considered to be an essential metal with quantities fluctuating naturally during normal cellular activity. It is found in all tissues and is also believed to play an important role in the development of a healthy fetus."

This statement was reviewed by CHOP's Chief of Infectious Diseases—the staunch vaccine advocate and vaccine patent holder Paul Offit, MD, who's also notorious for claiming that an infant can theoretically tolerate 10,000 vaccines at once.

Such claims are in stark contrast to real-life incidents where infants have died after receiving certain vaccines or combinations of vaccines numbering in the single digits. In one recent case, a five-month old baby boy died in his sleep after receiving a second round of eight different vaccines.

Since then, CHOP has revised this ridiculous statement, but still claims that aluminum adjuvants are of no concern, saying that "the aluminum contained in vaccines is similar to that found in a liter of infant formula." The site also says that:

"Given the quantities of aluminum we are exposed to on a daily basis, the quantity of aluminum in vaccines is miniscule. Aluminum-containing vaccines have been used for decades and have been given to over one billion people without problem."

What they fail to note is that eating and injecting aluminum is in no way equivalent. When you ingest aluminum, your body will absorb between 0.2-1.5 percent of it, or roughly one percent, according to Dr. Humphries.

A 2010 study published in Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology also refutes Dr. Offits's and Keith's claims of Safety. Dr. Keith's claim that vaccines do not add significantly to the load of total aluminum is just false, especially because babies' kidneys are not fully functional in the first months of life.

But the first vaccine in the USA, hepatitis B contains 225 mcg of aluminum, which is five times the total exposure of orally absorbed aluminum through the next six months. Premature babies have to deal with this load with even lower kidney function and lots more aluminum that comes from the medications given in the NICU.

When aluminum is injected, your body absorbs 100 percent of it, compared to the miniscule amount of stable silicated aluminum that is swallowed.
