Hydrolyzed collagen, like gelatin, is made from animal by-products, including skin, bones, and connective tissue. It is possible that consumption of hydrolyzed collagen risks contraction of Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with support from the TSE (Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy) Advisory Committee, has since 1997 been monitoring the potential risk of transmitting animal diseases, especially bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). The FDA study concluded: "...steps such as heat, alkaline treatment, and filtration could be effective in reducing the level of contaminating TSE agents; however, scientific evidence is insufficient at this time to demonstrate that these treatments would effectively remove the BSE infectious agent if present in the source material."
Sorbitol is a sugar substitute. It may be listed under the inactive ingredients listed for some foods and products. Its INS number and E number is 420.
Sorbitol is referred to as a nutritive sweetener because it provides dietary energy: 2.6 kilocalories (11 kilojoules) per gram versus the average 4 kilocalories (17 kilojoules) for carbohydrates. It is often used in diet foods (including diet drinks and ice cream), mints, cough syrups, and sugar-free chewing gum
Monosodium glutamate (MSG), also known as sodium glutamate, is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant naturally occurring non-essential amino acids.[
Sodium is a chemical element with the symbol Na (from Latin: natrium) and atomic number 11. It is a soft, silver-white, highly reactive metal and is a member of the alkali metals; its only stable isotope is 23Na. The free metal does not occur in nature, but instead must be prepared from its compounds
Inhalation of dust may irritate nose and throat. Ingestion may injure mouth, throat, and gastrointestinal tract, resulting in nausea, vomiting, cramps and diarrhea; pain and burning in mouth may occur. Contact with eyes produces local irritation; can lead to chronic damage. Contact with skin produces local irritation; repeated or prolonged contact can lead to dermatitis. (USCG, 1999)
The chemical compound potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chlorine. In its pure state, it is odorless and has a white or colorless vitreous crystal appearance
Human serum albumin is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma. It is produced in the liver. Albumin constitutes about half of the blood serum protein. It is soluble and monomeric.
Albumin transports hormones, fatty acids, and other compounds, buffers pH, and maintains osmotic pressure, among other functions.
Albumin is synthesized in the liver as preproalbumin, which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The product, proalbumin, is in turn cleaved in the Golgi vesicles to produce the secreted albumin.
Sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste resembling that of washing soda (sodium carbonate). The natural mineral form is nahcolite. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. It is among the food additives encoded by European Union, identified by the initials E 500. Since it has long been known and is widely used, the salt has many related names such as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda
Monopotassium phosphate, MKP, (also potassium dihydrogen phosphate, KDP, or monobasic potassium phosphate), KH2PO4, is a soluble salt of potassium and the dihydrogen phosphate ion which is used as a fertilizer, a food additive and a fungicide.
Neomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic found in many topical medications such as creams, ointments, and eyedrops. The discovery of neomycin dates back to 1949. It was discovered in the lab of Selman Waksman, who was later awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and medicine in 1951. Neomycin belongs to aminoglycoside class of antibiotics that contain two or more aminosugars connected by glycosidic bonds. Due to the inherent oto- and nephrotoxicity of these substances, systemic use has declined, as safer alternatives have become available.
Fetal bovine serum is a by-product of the meat industry. Fetal bovine serum, as with the vast majority of animal serum used in cell culture, is produced from blood collected at commercial slaughterhouses from cattle bred to supply meat destined for human consumption.
The first stage of the production process for fetal bovine serum is the harvesting of blood from the bovine fetus after the fetus is removed from the slaughtered cow. The blood is collected aseptically into a sterile container or blood bag and then allowed to clot. The normal method of collection is cardiac puncture, wherein a needle is inserted into the heart.
MRC-5 cell line and Human diploid fibroblast cell culture-WI-38:
Came from lung cells from a female fetus of 3-months gestation and MRC-5 was developed from lung cells from a 14-week-old male fetus. Both fetuses were intentionally aborted, but neither was aborted for the purpose of obtaining diploid cells.123. The fetal tissues that eventually became WI-38 and the MRC-5 cell cultures were removed from fetuses that were dead. The cellular biologists who made the cell cultures did not induce the abortions. These cell lines are used to make the MMR, chickenpox (varicella), shingles, polio, pentacel (DTaP, polio, Hib), and Hepatitis A vaccines.
Also its well documented that Doctors themselves do not vaccinate there children...
GP Jayne Donegan
LONDON doctor Jayne Donegan, 42, has gone from being an enthusiastic supporter of the vaccination programme to a GP who will no longer vaccinate at all. Dr Donegan has two children, Antonia, seven, and Pandora, nine. She says:
"Last year a newsletter produced by the Committee on Safety of Medicines and the Medicines Control Agency was sent to all GPs and hospitals. It said that an independent committee had reviewed all the available evidence on whether the MMR jab is linked to autism and Crohn’s disease.
‘They concluded that it was impossible to prove or refute the suggested associations between MMR vaccine and autism or inflammatory bowel disease — and went on to say that the information available did not support or give cause for concern about the safety of the MMR vaccine.
‘This does not make any sense. If they were unable to refute the claims, they cannot then go on and say there is no cause for concern.
‘The Department of Health insists the MMR vaccine doesn’t cause autism, but every GP knows that when you give a vaccine, a child can get a high fever, suffer inconsolable crying or uncontrolled screaming, which are signs of encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain).
‘If a child had encephalitis from any other cause — such as measles— and had a change in personality, the doctors would say that the encephalitis was to blame.
‘Although they see so many people suffering from a mild form of vaccine encephalitis, they say it definitely doesn’t cause personality changes, and definitely not autism.
‘Are they saying that vaccine encephalitis is different from any other sort? And if so, how?
‘People might worry about the reappearance of measles, which is the most serious of the three diseases, if we don’t vaccinate.
‘According to government figures, deaths from measles had decreased by 95pc before the first vaccine was introduced in 1968. The decline was steady, indicating that the disease was dying out naturally. Diseases do die out on their own.
‘Deaths from measles had gone from 1,145 in 1941 to 100 in 1967. The figures have continued to decrease, but not at any greater speed. So what caused the decrease in the first place?
‘Better public health has had the greatest effect. The Victorians did a tremendous amount to improve our living conditions.
‘The Victorians took sewage out of the streets and rivers, built railways which brought fresh fruit and vegetables to the towns, and knocked down slums.
‘The slums were replaced, bylaw, with cleaner, better-ventilated houses. infectious diseases could no longer thrive in the improved conditions, and better diet meant stronger immune systems.
‘I believe vaccines weaken the Immune system. In 1994, the British Medical Journal wrote that it was well known among immunologists that auto-immune disease such as asthma, eczema and diabetes are the price we pay for eradicating infectious diseases.
‘The author said that our immune system had matured and developed purely because of catching the diseases we are trying to eradicate.
‘In my opinion, normal childhood diseases are basically good for us. They teach our immune system what is "us" and what is foreign.
‘All our childhood diseases were killers when they first came along. They wiped out thousands because we had no natural immunity against them. Diseases infect us and, in turn, strengthen our immune system.
‘I vaccinated both my children with the MMR jab, but this was before I started my research into the problems associated with it.
‘Knowing what I know now, I would not vaccinate my children and run the risk of them getting diabetes, asthma, eczema, becoming more susceptible to meningitis and ending up chronically disabled.’

As an introductory comment, virtually all of the world's religions, in their origins, have taught the importance of maintaining cleanliness and purity of the human body. Although it is an accepted practice to maintain a separation between matters of science and religion, in issues surrounding childhood immunizations there is sufficient overlap to justify mention of the religious aspect.
The most basic long-term concern with current childhood vaccines, one as yet largely theoretical, is that the introduction of foreign genetic material, especially in the forms of live-virus vaccines, into the system of the child may bring about genetic changes. These in turn may bring about disease-creating situations due to the presence of alien, incompatible genetic elements in the child. Research in this area being in its infancy, we have a long way to go before such a theory can be proven scientifically, but the concept does have roots in folklore from the earliest dawn of human history as well as in religious faiths.
It is true that there may be situations where extreme measures may be justified to preserve life and health as the lesser of two evils. The basic question, therefore, is whether the benefits of current childhood vaccines outweigh the harm, or whether the reverse is true.
As to the benefits of vaccines, polio has been eliminated from the Western Hemisphere; smallpox may have been eliminated worldwide, although there are disturbing reports that it still to be found in parts of the Far East.
However, vaccine proponents would have us believe that vaccines have been largely responsible for controlling virtually all of the former epidemics of killer diseases in the U.S.A. With the exceptions cited above, the facts do not bear this out. According to the records of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, from 1911 to 1935 the 4 leading causes of death from infectious diseases in the USA were diptheria, scarlet fever, whooping cough (pertussis) and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95%, BEFORE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF MASS IMMUNIZATION PROGRAMS. (1) By far the greatest factors in this decline were sanitation through public health measures, improved nutrition, and better housing with less crowded conditions.
It should be pointed out that today's children receive up to 35 vaccines before school age, whereas today's senior citizens received only one, the smallpox vaccine. Most infants have been receiving up to 15 doses of mercury-containing vaccines by the time they are 6 months old. It is almost inconceivable that these heavy burdens of foreign immunologic materials, introduced into the immature systems of children, could fail to bring about disruptions and adverse reactions in these in these systems. It is reasonable to ask ourselves, therefore, what is known about these reactions.
A small but growing minority of physicians and scientists are becoming aware that safety testings for the various vaccines have been woefully inadequate. As one of many examples, in 1994, a special committee of the National Academy of Sciences published a comprehensive review of the vaccine safety of the hepatitis B vaccine. When the committee investigated 5 possible and plausible adverse effects, they were unable to come to any conclusion for 4 of them because, to their dismay, they found that relevant safety research had not been done.
The clear implication of this and other revelations (2) concerning a general deficiency of safety testing in the vaccine field is that
adverse reactions may be taking place on a large scale without being recognized as to their true nature.
There is a school of thought that the so-called minor childhood illnesses of former times, including measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox, which entered the body through the mucous membranes, served a necessary and positive purpose in challenging and strengthening the immune systems of these membranes. (3) In contrast, the respective vaccines of these diseases are injected by needle directly into the system of the child, thereby bypassing the mucosal immune system. As a result, mucosal immunity remains relatively weak and stunted in many children, one complication of which may be the rapid increase in asthma now seen, both in frequency and severity.
It is true that in former times there were occasional serious complications from these childhood diseases, but most of these could be eliminated by nutrition, homeopathy, and other simple means, if these approaches were made widely available. No one wants to see serious complications from diseases in our children, but the vaccine route may in time prove to be the worst possible choice that could have been made, as concerns these minor childhood diseases.
Perhaps the greatest concern with vaccines today rests with the possible casual relation with the growing epidemic of childhood autism, developmental delay, and attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder, (ADHD). Regarding the latter, a recent report stated that ADHD had increased from 900,000 in 1991 to nearly 5 million today. Regarding autism, a recent statistical survey mandated by the California state legislature found an increase of 273% in California in the past 10 years. Reports from education departments in a number of states, reporting on the rapidly increasing needs of classrooms for developmentally delayed children, reflect comparable increases throughout the nation. (4)
At present, primary suspicion for this epidemic of neurobehavioral disorders rests with the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine. Although scientific evidence has not yet reached the standards of proof, one pioneer researcher in this area, Dr. Vijendra Singh with the University of Michigan, has published a report of a study in which he found that a large majority of autistic children tested had antibodies to brain tissue, in the form of antibodies to myelin basic protein. He also found a strong correlation between myelin basic protein antibodies and antibodies to measles, mumps, and rubella (almost all of the children had been immunized with MMR, and none had had these diseases). (5) This study confirms the results of a similar study published in The Lancet in 1998 by Dr. Andrew Wakefield of the Royal Free hospital in London, showing a link between MMR vaccination and Crohn's disease of the bowel and autism. (6)
If the MMR vaccine were causing an autoimmune reaction involving the brains of autistic children, what would be the mechanism? Although research in this area is in its infancy, as previously mentioned, we do know some things. Both the measles and mumps fractions of the MMR vaccine are cultured in chick embryo tissue. As purely genetic material, viruses are highly susceptible to the process of "jumping genes," in which they may incorporate genetic material from the tissues in which they are cultured (7-8). Once this genetic material of chick origin is introduced into the child, it may set in motion an immunologic battleground, a process that the work of Dr. Singh would tend to confirm.
A similar process may have taken place with the oral (Sabin) polio vaccine, which is cultured in monkey kidneys. Years ago Dr. John Martin, then serving as the director of the viral oncology branch within the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, reported to his supervisors that he found foreign DNA in contemporary polio vaccines. He later learned that a simian (Monkey) cytomegalic virus had been found in all of the eleven African green monkeys imported for production of the polio vaccine. (9) After leaving the FDA he took a position as professor of pathology with the University of Southern California. There he tested blood samples from patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, and other nervous disorders. This work led to his discovery of unique cell-destroying viruses that were not recognized by the immune system. Termed "stealth viruses," the viruses were able to cause persistent infections because they were missing genes which, if evoked, would express immunity. (10-11)
In March 1995 Dr. Martin communicated to FDA officials that some stealth viruses clearly originated from African green monkey simian cytomegalic viruses, a type of herpes virus that may also infect humans. Dr. Martin asked the FDA to help him investigate the prevalence of this infection in the general population and in polio vaccine lots. His request was denied. (9)
Long overdue, on June 17, 1999 U.S. government officials voted to withdraw their recommendation for the use of the live polio vaccine and to recommend "exclusive" use of the inactivated (Salk) polio vaccine. (Parenthetically, the Salk vaccine is free of the danger of herpes virus contamination.)
In summary, it is possible that either the MMR or the oral polio vaccines, by mechanisms described above, may induce a process of encephalitis or brain inflammation, which may be highly prevalent but as yet rarely recognized for its true nature.
As another basic concept, it is highly pertinent that many of today's children are second-generation vaccinees, that is, they are born to mothers previously vaccinated with the measles, mumps and rubella vaccines. It is possible that the reaction rates in the
second-generation vaccinees may be happening on a much larger scale due to previous sensitization of the mothers from their vaccines, this sensitization in turn being transmitted to the fetus during pregnancy. (12) If this process is taking place, something we cannot know until appropriate research is done, one shudders to think of the unfathomable consequences, should the process be continued into yet another, a third generation.
Time may prove that vaccine programs went awry when they deviated from the most basic of all medical ethics, the right of a patient to accept or reject a medical therapy, or the right of parents to accept or reject vaccines for their children. Freedom-of-choice provides a system of checks and balances now lacking. At the very least, this would provide the parents with power to compel better safety screening of the vaccines. The remedy? Parents should be allowed the right of informed consent, or the right to accept or reject vaccines for their children based on full and uncensored disclosure of pros and cons.
Today we have a system in which vaccine production by the pharmaceutical companies is largely self-regulated. Of course these companies are interested in profits from their products which, in itself, is not wrong. However, when arbitrary decisions in the mandating of vaccines are made by the government bureaucracies, which are highly partisan to the pharmaceuticals, with no recourse open to parents, we have all the potential ingredients for a tragedy of historical proportions.
and it goes on, so no i will let my childrens immune systems do their job and be a bad parent
