Aluminum in vaccines shown to cause neurological damage

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

baby-crying(NaturalHealth365) Aluminum is not natural to the human body, and the known ‘safe limit’ is only 25 mcg.  So, with this in mind, why are vaccine makers allowed to deliver nearly 5,000 mcg of aluminum into the delicate systems of newborn babies by the age of 18 months?

Aluminum’s stated function in vaccines is as an “adjuvant” to assist in the vaccine’s ability to have long-term effects in the body. While ingested aluminum can be expelled (fairly rapidly), the injectable type of aluminum used in vaccines stays in the body much longer. It has also been found to impact the nervous system in many harmful ways.

Aluminum linked to cognitive problems and motor functioning deficits

Researchers looking into this matter injected correlating amounts of aluminum into the bodies of mice to see what would occur. The mice quickly showed negative health effects including behavioral changes and deficits in motor functioning. They also showed cognitive problems directly related to being injected with aluminum.

When the mice were autopsied, major damage to the motor neurons in their brains and nervous systems were observed. These kinds of damages are precursors to conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease down the road.

When the researchers published these findings, they expected a strong reaction and positive action to be taken by both the FDA and vaccine companies. However, they were met with total silence.

The FDA and big pharma show a disturbing pattern of stonewalling and ignoring evidence

When approached directly with the findings of Dr. Shaw’s study, the FDA’s disturbing reply was that they didn’t believe his paper brought to light a need for additional research. (Can you believe this?!)

Dr. Shaw explains how it all unfolded here:

Aluminum toxicity has already been linked with the autism epidemic. A 2013 University of British Columbia study found a strong correlation between autism rates in young children and those who received aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines.

The U.S. government knows about aluminum toxicity, yet continues to push childhood vaccination programs. Despite skyrocketing autism rates and demonstrated issues with aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines, these shots are still being promoted and injected in our nation’s future generation when they are at their most vulnerable.

Babies receive nearly 5,000 mcg of aluminum by 18 months old

Again, the “safe” level of injectable aluminum is 25 mcg or less, and only 10 mcg for premature babies and those with kidney conditions. Yet newborns are routinely given a Hepatitis B injection immediately after birth, exposing them 250 mcg of aluminum their first day.

Babies then receive a second Hep B shot a month later. At two months old, an extremely large round of vaccines is given. It is estimated that the total amount of aluminum infants receive at just two months ranges from around 300 mcg to 1,225 mcg.

There are more vaccines given at ages four and six months, and the shots continue. Some estimates put the total amount of aluminum exposure by 18 months close to 5,000 mcg.

Bottom line: The injection of toxic aluminum has to stop. Our nation’s health, well being and future depend on it.

    The life sciences industry covers the pharmaceutical industry supply chain like manufacturers, wholesale distributors and dispensers to see they comply with global standards. If this is what life sciences is about we can forget about health.

    Another unknown thorn in the fight against the vaccine industry is a little know fact. It is called lyophilization, which means freeze-drying-this is considered a solution for sensitive therapeutic molecules, particularly protein, peptide and vaccine products to overcome physical and chemical instability.

    This is used for stability, shelf life and bioactivity. It had a market valued at 1.97 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach 2.66 billion soon. A typical lyophilzation formulation contains the active ingredient and a variety of other things including bulking agents, mannitol, disaccharides, glycerol, histidine and other materials.

    There are possible risks associated with this procedure. The biggest one-it is destined to make this industry more profitable and in turn will make the vaccine industry more powerful.

    The market for government sponsored vaccine research is significant, there are fifteen hundred active clinical studies being funded by the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies to find solutions for infectious diseases, global viral epidemics and bio-threats.

    This means vaccine development for-THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. They may turn out to be the biggest supporters of the vaccine industry.

    You cite Shaw’s review article in 2013 where he mentions the autism/aluminum connection. Nevison tracked autism trends with trends in use of aluminum in adjuvants, as well as to the use of glyphosate (Round-up pesticide) in an open access article in 2014 (

    However, we do not need adjuvants to get aluminum directly into the hypodermal fluids (where it can freely circulate in ionic form, as well as combined with proteins as in adjuvants). It is in the air, water and soil around us, and crops growing anywhere in the U.S. and in developing/developed nations. It is the predominant metal of industry.

    It can get into the hypodermal fluid without crossing any cell membrane through Peyer’s patches in the gut (if polio virus can do so, so can all toxins), gingiva (viruses & bacteria can use this route), eyes (next to eyeball through the leaky orbital ligaments), and thus to the brain. In addition to these routes, research shows that the olfactory nerve in the nose is another route for toxins to travel.

    Thus, you do not need to have a cut or damaged epithelia for it to get inside the body. Its molecular weight (26) is within the same weight as readily transported sodium, magnesium, and potassium, and pretty much most of the biological chemical elements. These can all get into sweat and sebacious glands via the pores in our skin as well, despite those pores being created as exit-only routes from the hypodermis. Water is heavier than ionic aluminum and its gets under the skin without crossing any cell membrane. So it can carry aluminum into our interior easily.

    It is odd that the link you give to the FDA’s call for comments (on proposed actions in 2003 to label aluminum content in all vaccines) only states storage places in bone, thus making it difficult to test for aluminum in infants and newborns (whose support structures are mostly cartilage). Hypodermal fluid would have been very easy to test with simple mass spectrograms.

    I am always amazed at the determination of physicans to think only of bodily fluids found in urine and blood when there is a whole, HUGE compartment found in interstitial fluid, which travels everywhere in the body, outside of any vessel. Not everything in that fluid makes it into blood vessels because there is some level of filtration that occurs at the endothelial level. So the assumption that blood composition reflects what is present in all tissues is flawed, at best.

    There was a big symposium in Europe about 6 years ago which pretty much concluded that aluminum was responsible for Alzheimer’s. It seems that the European medical establishment is more sensitive to toxins than the one in the U.S.

    However, in my searches on the Alzheimer’s links, I found evidence that suggests that people who suffered early trauma are the most likely to suffer any kind of dementia in their later years. Severe negative emotion can cause damage to the brain (excessive high electrical charge carried by neurons with variable trigger levels?), and those damaged pathways would be easily affected by too much metal in the brain as well as other events correlated with age.
