Vaccine Fillers and Ingredients
In addition to the viral and bacterial RNA or DNA that is part of the vaccines, vaccine fillers and ingredients include:
aluminum hydroxide
aluminum phosphate
ammonium sulfate
amphotericin B
animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
dog kidney, monkey kidney,
chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg
calf (bovine) serum
fetal bovine serum
human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
hydrolized gelatin
monosodium glutamate (MSG)
neomycin sulfate
phenol red indicator
phenoxyethanol (antifreeze)
potassium diphosphate
potassium monophosphate
polymyxin B
polysorbate 20
polysorbate 80
porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
residual MRC5 proteins
thimerosal (mercury)
VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells
washed sheep red blood cells.

Do you provaxers even know what this stuff is????

I take huge issue with this. I want to see the whole schedule. In humans.

Thimerosal is still used in the manufacturing of vaccines, so there are still trace amounts in some vaccines, and most flu vaccines do contain full amounts.

In the "Vaccine Safety Manual" he mentions one that still has it, I think it's the one produced by GlaxoSmithCline.

I think part of this issue surrounds the fact that while the body may excrete Hg, this doesn't address the overall body burden and the damage done during the process (which I think MV already stated). The inflammatory component involved in vaccination has a tendency to alter host response on several levels.

I think the exposure routes are significant, because host response (ie. chemical reactions etc...) will vary depending on this factor.

"While I understand that thimerosal wasn't completely removed overnight, the number of children receiving doses of it would have dropped dramatically."

Yes, but then they started getting it on the day of their birth via the Hep B vaccine which only recently (within the past 2.5 years I believe) had it removed.

And welcome to the board Jenifer!

I did not have to have any but what's in the Rhogam shot that some pregnant mother's get?

I remember that Canadian study as having some big problems.

Prenatal exposure to a drug is not the same as infant exposure to the drug.

Large population studies won't necessarily spot small sub groups.

Look, this is the picture I think you are missing.

Imagine a cluster of brain cancer cases in a particular office building in a particular city. In order to figure out what is going on, scientists would study the people who work in that office building. They would look at what parts of the building the brain cancer cases worked in. What exposures they had that other people didn't have. What characteristics that group showed that other people didn't show.

The vaccine autism studies, on the other hand, are like going to another city, studying a broad cross-section of office workers and saying "see, there is no increase in brain cancer, working in offices is safe."

I've never seen a mainstream study yet which took the problems the parents have spotted seriously. All of the studies are DESIGNED to dismiss these problems, to miss them to overlook them.

It would be quite easy to figure out if prenatal exposure is a problem. Just ask a few hundred parents of newly diagnosed kids if they had flu shots during pregnancy. If a high percentage did...then it is worth looking into this as a possible trigger. The fact that AFTER a huge concern has been raised about thimerosal exposure, the CDC recommends flu shots to pregnant women and doesn't recommend avoiding the thimerosal containing version is to me a sign of insanity.

But I don't think we are getting any where with this discussion, I'm going to have to drop out. I've got other stuff I have to get to, sorry!

I haven't read this lately and don't remember where it came from but I remember it being interesting reading. I have read conflicting data on this issue. But since it's not clear exactly when the thimerosal was not in vaccines, since it still is...I don't know what any of it is supposed to prove.
