Lumber Liquidators has made headlines recently, but it’s not because of some mega clearance sale or feel-good promotion. Rather, they were selling flooring that contained a toxic chemical known to jeopardize people’s health — formaldehyde.
Worse, they were making false claims about this, saying that the Chinese-made laminate flooring they were supplying fell within state and federal formaldehyde limits. In reality, the flooring exceeded state and federal formaldehyde standards by as much as a whopping 1,300 percent.(1)
This caused an uproar among concerned citizens, ultimately resulting in a series of class action suits across the country.
The news has been worrisome for many; after 60 Minutes aired information about the cancer-causing chemicals found in the flooring, Lumber Liquidators stock fell dramatically — 25 percent.(2)
Forget flooring: What about the formaldehyde in our vaccines?
While the fact that Lumber Liquidators has come under pressure for this, there seems to be a greater issue at hand.
So here’s the big (and obvious) question: Where’s this same sense of urgency and concern when it comes to vaccines? After all, they also contain formaldehyde. Doctors and even ordinary trying-to-be-funny folks like Jimmy Kimmel advocate getting them. Sure, go ahead and jab children’s arms with the cancer-causing chemical. But put it in flooring? For shame! Now that’s grounds for legal action and widespread media coverage.
See the shift in attitudes when it comes to formaldehyde and vaccines? But flooring, well, we better get the legal pros and camera crews in on that issue. If it’s in floors, it’s a health danger. If it’s injected directly into our children’s arms, then it’s perfectly fine.
Some people or organizations simply turn a blind eye when it comes to the health dangers of vaccines.
FDA pushes formaldehyde in vaccines, says it occurs in our bodies naturally anyway
For example, the FDA states that use of formaldehyde in vaccines is nothing to fear, stating on their website the following in an attempt to allay public fears:
Formaldehyde is diluted during the vaccine manufacturing process, but residual quantities of formaldehyde may be found in some current vaccines. The amount of formaldehyde present in some vaccines is so small compared to the concentration that occurs naturally in the body that it does not pose a safety concern.(3)
Words like “diluted” and statements that try to draw parallels between something that occurs naturally in our bodies and what’s found in vaccines are sad attempts to pull the wool over people’s eyes. We know better.
Yet the site goes on, heavily pushing the concept that, because formaldehyde exists in our bodies already, the lab-made concoctions must also be alright:
Formaldehyde is also produced naturally in the human body as a part of normal functions of the body to produce energy and build the basic materials needed for important life processes. This includes making amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins that the body needs.(3)
Despite those who say vaccines do no harm, many people know better
It’s as if the FDA is saying, in a roundabout yet blatant pro-vaccine manner, that our bodies actually need vaccines. Just give it more of what it already has, right? Again, we know better.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services knows better too. In their Report on Carcinogens, they’ve listed formaldehyde as a chemical ingredient that is “known to be a human carcinogen.”(4) [emphasis in original]
Those who have personally experienced, or witnessed a loved one encounter, health problems as a result of getting vaccines, know better too. For example, vaccines have been shown to produce horrible, life-changing effects in many people.
Not too long after getting a shot, there have been instances where a child or adult went from being a healthy person to one with severe skin swelling on various parts of their body, including the eyes, legs and arms, as these pictures clearly demonstrate. And that’s the least of it: Many people are well aware of the fact that even death has been the sad consequence of many vaccinations.
But let’s focus on flooring, shall we?
