New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines

Written by Dr. David Brownstein


Italian researchers recently studied the safety of vaccines in current use. (1) They examined 44 types of vaccines to check for physical contamination.  Although the vaccines were obtained from two countries (France and Italy), the same vaccine companies that supply the U.S. were used in this study. Using an electron scanning microscope equipped with an X-ray microprobe, the researchers examined the vaccines to detect the presence of inorganic particulate contaminants.

Inorganic, foreign bodies were found in all the human-use vaccines. In fact, the scientists claim that the foreign bodies they found were not declared in the package insert from the manufacturer. In other words, the Big Pharma manufacturer of a vaccine either does not know that its product is contaminated or hid that data from the package insert.

The authors stated,

“The quantity of foreign bodies detected and, in some cases, their unusual chemical compositions baffled us. The inorganic particles identified are neither biocompatible nor biodegradable, that means that they are bio persistent and can induce effects that can become evident either immediately close to injection time or after a certain time from administration. It is important to remember that particles are bodies foreign to the organism and they behave as such.  For that reason, they induce an inflammatory reaction.”

Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil, the flu vaccine, as well as in the meningitis vaccine. Other vaccines were found to be contaminated with stainless steel, iron, chromium, and the heavy metal nickel. GlaxoSmithKline’s Fluarix vaccine for children was found to contain 11 different metals.

Once these foreign substances are injected into the body, they can stay around the injection site and can cause swelling and granulomas. However, they can also be carried by the blood to distant areas of the body as well. Since these particles cannot be degraded, they can induce a chronic inflammatory state such as an arthritic or autoimmune disorder. Furthermore, the scientists state, “It is only the obvious that similar quantities of these foreign bodies can have a more serious impact on very small organisms like those of children.”

The authors further stated:

“The contamination found in the vaccines was “…similar to those found in…cases of environmental contamination caused by different pollution sources. In most circumstances, the combinations of {foreign bodies} is very odd…and look like the result of the random formation occurring, for example, when waste is burnt. In any case, whatever their origin, they should not be present in any injectable medicament, let alone in vaccines, more in particular those meant for infants.”

Vaccines have become the most profitable business for Big Pharma, which carries no liability for vaccines since President Reagan signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986. This provided complete immunity for any and all problems related to vaccines. Why we would give Big Pharma complete immunity from their products is beyond me. Since Big Pharma has no liability concerns with their vaccine products, what incentive do they have to make vaccines safer?

Folks, for many years, I have been writing to you about the problems with vaccines. We hear the mantra from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the other Powers-That-Be that vaccines are safe. How safe can they be when they are contaminated with foreign bodies?

The FDA states, “FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness, quality, and security of human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products, and medical devices.”

I think we need  to investigate whether vaccines are truly safe or not and, more importantly, how to make them safer. There should be zero tolerance for injecting known carcinogens (e.g., formaldehyde), neurotoxins (e.g., aluminum, mercury) and now foreign bodies into any living being.

Do we need to ensure that our vaccines are safe?  Yes.  Who can argue with that?
