There are serious concerns being raised regarding contamination in vaccines, especially in light of the fact that many vaccines are now made in China.
Most childhood vaccines are now made in Chinese vaccine manufacturing facilities (Bolen Report, 2017). Unfortunately, foreign pharmaceutical companies are not subject to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quality control regulations.
China has a history of producing tainted and/or toxic products.
For example, in 2008, an estimated 300,000 infants fell victim to contaminated infant formulas made in China. Six of the infants died. Four years after that, Chinese baby formulas were found to contain dangerous levels of mercury and were forced to recall six months’ worth of production. Then one month after that, China authorities discovered more shipments of contaminated infant formula, this time poisoned with a cancer-causing toxin aflatoxin, a carcinogenic substance produced by fungus or mold. It was found in “excessive” amounts (The New York Times, 2012).
In 2007, a nationwide inspection of China’s food industry uncovered 23,000 cases of tainted or expired food (NPR, 2007a). Then in 2012, when Rendezvous explored the issue of food safety in China they described it as “a mess” (The New York Times, 2012).
It gets worse…
Other products from China are found to be contaminated or toxic such as: toothpaste (containing antifreeze); toys (containing lead); mini-blinds (containing lead); pet food (contaminated with melamine, a chemical used to make plastic products); laminate wood flooring (containing high levels of formaldehyde); candy, pickles, crackers and seafood (tainted with formaldehyde, illegal dyes and industrial wax) (NPR, 2007b).
In 2007 alone the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission recalled 338 products from China (NPR, 2007b).
Already there are problems reported with vaccines from China.A series of news reports coming out of China reveal that thousands of doses of improperly stored and expired vaccines for children are being sold (Cáceres, 2016).
Moreover, there is new research evidence to suggest that contamination in vaccines is a problem. In a new study, Italian researchers Gatti and Montanari (2016) used sensitive new technologies to examine vaccines. These scientists examined 44 samples of 30 different vaccines and found dangerous contaminants in 43 of the 44 samples tested. They found single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and toxic metals including lead, tungsten, gold, platinum, silver, bismuth, chromium, aluminum, bromine, silicon, titanium, stainless steel, and tungsten.
The bad news…
Injecting toxins/ contaminates into the body can have direct effects including destruction of tissue, particularly nervous tissue. However, an inflammatory-based secondary response from injecting contaminates into the body can have even greater detrimental effect.
The brain possesses its own innate immune system and it can sense peripheral innate immune responses. When the peripheral immune system is activated by the presence of injected contaminants, the brain’s immune system can potentially be activated. Microglia, which constitute the main innate immunity effector cells, become activated. Microglia then release proinflammatory signals including cytokines and chemokines (Reis et al., 2015).
If the activation and inflammation are sustained, the brain’s immune system can become in effect “derailed” and healthy brain tissue can be destroyed as “collateral damage”. This is the very issue found in children with autism spectrum disorder (Rodriguez and Kern, 2011).
With one in six children in the United States having a neurodevelopmental disorder already, we already have a problem.
Can we stand to put our children at an even greater risk by injecting them with contaminated vaccines made in China?
