COMPOSITION OF VACCINES
Vaccines come from fertilized eggs that act as miniature incubators. Many vaccines have preservatives and trace amounts of antibiotics. Are we over vaccinating our children? Could this be the cause of the rapid rise in autism, which now hits one out of 50 of our male children? Should our elderly who have very little immunity be given more viruses to fight off?
WHAT’S IN YOUR VACCINATION
The safety and effectiveness of vaccines is daily questioned by the public. Should we take another look at the negative effects of vaccination? Many of these questions can be answered by understanding vaccine composition and how vaccines are manufactured.
CHICKEN LABS-- SOURCE FOR VACCINES
Vaccines come from fertilized eggs that act as miniature incubators. Viruses are injected into the fluid around the chicken embryo. The virus then multiplies, is extracted, killed, and blended into vaccines.
Drug company manufactures have their own chicken industry labs at secure Amish farms in Pennsylvania. Thousands of roosters and hens are isolated for months with one mission—to fertilize enough eggs to supply all our vaccines.
A hen lays an egg every day whether it is fertilized or not. One rooster takes care of about 15 hens. After nine months, when the hands the longer can lay optimal eggs, they are discharged from their government service and euthanized.

HOW VACCINES ARE MADE
Unlike medications as penicillin or aspirin, vaccines are very complex to manufacture. Since they cannot reproduce on their own, living cells are required. The living cells generally come from a chicken embryo and occasionally from animal cells (in chicken pox vaccine) that are grown in culture.
The culture on which the cells grow, are generally from the human fetal diploid cells. Since 1961, the human cell culture, called W-38, has come from the lung cells of a three-month gestation female fetus.
Another human diploid cell culture, MRC-5, is used for vaccine production in England. This culture came from lung cells from a 14-week-old male fetus. Both the American and English fetuses were intentionally aborted, and their tissues have become the cell cultures from the dead fetuses.
WHY USE THE SAME CULTURES ALMOST 50 YEARS?
The drug companies while developing a rubella vaccine, obtained a wild strain rubella virus from an infected mother and an abortion was performed. This virus known as RA27 is also grown in human fetal diploid cells. Scientists tried to use cells from other animals other than humans to make this vaccine, but the vaccines proved to be unsafe and less effective than when grown in the 50-year-old W. I- 38 cells.
Hundreds of millions doses of vaccine have been used from just these two cell cultures over and over again in American and English laboratories since 1961. Currently they are used for all vaccines except the rabies vaccine.
Only these two strains now represent the biological system in which viruses are grown. These cells cannot form a complete organism and therefore cannot constitute a potential human being. These cells, however, keep reproducing themselves. There is no need to abort more fetuses to keep the culture supply abundant. All viruses are collected from these cultures and then processed to produce vaccines.
Vaccines are very difficult to produce and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Most of the research is done in academic labs and paid for by drug companies or government grants.
VACCINE CLINICAL TRIALS
Scientists must first isolate the particular virus and figure out how it causes the disease. Then they develop a vaccine, from a live virus, weakened virus, or inactivated virus.
The initial study is on 100 very healthy adults with low risk complications. If the vaccine is found to be safe and produces an immune response that will play out the disease the study then proceeds to faze 2.
In phase 2, a few hundred people are chosen as target audiences. Again the vaccine must cause the desired immune response to continue the approval testing.
Phase 3, the final phase, includes up to 10,000 people in various lifestyles and geographic locations. They must prove that the vaccine works on people of all types in all environments.
Finally, the FDA reviews the data, and gives the final okay. A board of vaccine experts is then selected (by paid drug consultants?). They advised the CDC, review the data, and approve the vaccine. In the end, the board of experts makes the decision on who should get the vaccine, when they should get it, and what dose should be available.
Allergic reactions occur from any components in the vaccination and can cause death. The components of the vaccine most responsible for allergic reaction are: animal proteins, antibiotics, preservatives as thimerosal, and gelatin vaccine stabilizers.
The animal protein allergen causing reactions is prepared from embryonic chicken eggs. Since the flu vaccine virus is grown in live eggs, people with severe egg allergies should not receive the influenza flu virus vaccine.
Many vaccines have preservatives and trace amounts of antibiotics. Thimerosal is still found in the meningococcal vaccine and the Japanese encephalitis vaccine, along with others. Traditionally, Thimerosal was used in vaccine vials as a disinfectant. Recently this has been abandoned because the chemical has caused bad reactions. The disinfectant is currently used in small traces only in influenza vaccines. Drug manufacturers are discontinuing the multidose vaccine vials.
Allergic reactions may also occur from antibiotics present in the vaccines. The measles vaccine contains trace amounts of neomycin and other antibiotics.
There are other allergens in vaccines that may cause reactions. To make vaccines more potent, adjuncts are added. These are a mixture of saponin, and lipid A or derivatives as interleukin 12. Other than the vaccines, there are many other allergic components. As vaccines leave the manufacturing plant they must remain stable to be effective. As the vaccines get bounced on trucks the vaccine can weaken. Small amounts of these adjunct chemicals are added as stabilizers to keep the vaccine potent.
There is today a great deal of concern about the safety of vaccinations. Recent evidence has shown viral mutations in the laboratory, with the formation of new viruses, as the retrovirus found to cause chronic fatigue syndrome. Suggestion that autism may also have a viral component, adds to the concerns of many Americans.
Some of the 41 vaccines could be prepared in cell cultures other than human diploid cell cultures. When the original vaccines were developed, these new culture cells were not available. There is also no guarantee that vaccines grown in these alternative cell lines would be any safer or more effective. There is concern on whether the 50-year-old human exploit cultures that have been used over and over, might no longer be safe nor effective.
Are we over vaccinating our children? Could this be the cause of the rapid rise in autism, which now hits one out of 50 of our male children? Should our elderly who have very little immunity be given more viruses to fight off? Evidence has shown a risk of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases in over vaccinated patients. One study showed that if a patient gets a flu shot for five years in a row, he is ten times more likely to get Alzheimer’s.
Should we take another look at the negative effects of vaccination?
