Antivaccine lies–peanut oil and vaccines

The lying liars who lie, also known as antivaccine websites, have one goal in mind: say anything about anything that makes it appear that vaccines are dangerous, repeat it over and over, and then hope that other websites pick it up. Eventually, some people will think it’s a fact, and when you Google this “fact,” there will be so many websites that repeat the same lie (and some innocently, without really critically analyzing it), even a somewhat impartial observer will think that it’s the TRUTH.

About as close as peanuts will come to vaccines.
About as close as peanuts will come to vaccines.

Now, they can’t make obnoxiously obvious lies, because there are lines that one can’t cross before everyone can see it’s a lie or the product of insanity. If an antivaccine website says that aliens from Klingon manufacture the vaccines so that humans will grow a ridge on their forehead, well that would be ridiculous. Cool, but ridiculous. Yes, I know there would be some small number of people who say, “I knew it!” 

Every so often, unfortunately, these lying liars who lie are able to move their lies ever so slightly mainstream, and all of a sudden those of us who are pro-science (pro-vaccine) have to deal with it. One vaccine lying group uses 50-60 year old data from a study of vaccine adjuvants, which examined the usefulness of peanut oil and other compounds as adjuvants (a substance that enhances the immune response to an antigen), then claims that somehow the FDA/CDC/Big Pharma is hiding the fact that peanut oil is in vaccines, and is causing all of the claimed problems from vaccines. 

Another gang of vaccine liars claimed that “what peanuts have in common with vaccines is something that very few healthcare consumers and medical doctors may be aware of: Peanut oil is a hidden and non-stated ingredient in the manufacture of children’s vaccines.” And these fabricators of vaccine myths then state that Shaken Baby Syndrome, a form of child abuse where one or both parents will shake a baby so hard that she suffers trauma and death, is actually not abuse but results from the peanut oil in the vaccine.

Take a breath here. These vaccines liars think that it’s not child abuse, not a violent murderous act, but really the parents are innocent, it’s all about the vaccines, and the peanut oil hiding in the vaccine. If you want any more evidence that vaccine deniers don’t care about children, only about their antivaccine cause, here it is. I don’t want to debunk this myth, because I’ve got to assume that anyone with more than a handful of neurons firing in their brain would see this for the vile lie that it is.

But if you need more in formation, Orac himself should dissuade anyone, even a marginally intelligent antivaccination pusher, from accepting this lie. Any reasonable person would get sick knowing a violent murderer might get away with that murder using the “vaccines really did it” defense.

Back to peanuts.

Like I mentioned, sometimes these lies leak out into the mainstream science community unintentionally. Recently, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), a professional medical organization of allergists and immunologists, posted a question and answer about peanuts and vaccines in their “Ask an Expert” section (which is a really cool idea of the AAAAI).  The question, which appeared to come from a physician, simply asked:

Are you aware of any vaccines that contain peanut oil as an excipient (editor’s note: also known as an adjuvant)? I have a patient who insists that some vaccines contain peanut oil and that is why the prevalence of peanut allergy has continued to rise.

The expert who answered, Phil Lieberman MD, seemed to be unaware of just how crazy the vaccine deniers can be. Dr. Lieberman gave a kind of nuanced response, and those of us who’ve been doing this for awhile know if you give a subtle response, the antivaccination forces will use it as “proof.” The expert wrote:

The issue of peanut antigen in vaccines, at least according to my assessment of the reading material available, is similar to the issue of adverse effects of mercury in vaccines. It seems to be fueled by consumer message boards and consumer-oriented websites. These websites and consumer message boards, as best I can tell, claim that small amounts of peanut allergen contaminate vaccines and are not listed as an ingredient in the package insert. I personally have not been able to find any confirmation in the medical literature of contamination of vaccines by peanut antigen.

For your interest, I have copied below several links to consumer websites and message boards that discuss this issue. However, as previously noted, I am not aware of any documentation in the medical literature of the contamination of vaccines by peanut antigen.

There’s several problems with his response:

  1. To a science person, yes the peanut lie is right up there with mercury (actually thiomersal). The problem is, to the antivaccination gangs, comparing peanut oil in vaccines to mercury in vaccines kind of proves their point. If I were them, I’d quote that sentence out of context and post it to every vaccine lying forum on the internet.
  2. The expert failed to actually go find out if peanut oil could conceivably in the ingredient list of vaccines. Because vaccine refusers, using the Argument from Ignorance logical fallacy, will claim that if you can’t “prove” there’s no peanut oil in vaccines, then there must be peanut oil in vaccines.
  3. Then Dr. Lieberman lists five websites from irresponsible vaccine liars to show who’s been pushing this particular myth. Why give them credibility by linking from a credible and scientific AAAAI website.

Now, maybe I’m more used to the full-throated scientific support that is necessary to contradict most lies of the antivaccination crowd. But Dr. Lieberman’s response was just a tad weak, and could conceivably be used by the vaccine deniers as I mentioned.

Lucky for us, one of the more vocal (and much kinder than I would ever be) pro-science writers, Karen Ernst, somehow used her secret connections in the pro-vaccine conspiracy (which means she called real physicians to find out if she could get involved with the peanut oil manufactroversy) to append a reply to Dr. Lieberman. Here are the key points she made:

  1. This myth is based on 50 year old studies to find better adjuvants for vaccines. I assume that it didn’t work or the risk of peanut allergy, well know since peanuts became a food source, was so high that the risks outweighed any benefits.
  2. The Code of Federal Regulations, the written law that regulates every US government entity, including the FDA, makes it plainly clear–ALL ingredients in pharmaceutical and medical products must be made public in the product labeling. Not doing so, according to FDA regulations, can be a criminal act, but it will at least result in fines and other penalties. The unbending culture of closely and tightly regulated ingredients, and making public any change, is ingrained deeply into the DNA of every single employee of pharmaceutical companies. I can see where Big Pharma bends rules on labeling and advertising, and I am fully aware of the unethical marketing practices, but in manufacturing, that just isn’t going to happen. It is beyond delusional if anyone thinks this can or will intentionally happen. No one is going to risk prison for their Big Pharma overlords. Let me put this as clear as I can–if an ingredient is listed on the package insert, it’s there. If it isn’t in the package insert, it isn’t there.
  3. The CDC states very clearly that  “aluminum gels or aluminum salts are the only vaccine adjuvants currently licensed for use in the United States”–short of inventing a circuitous chain of conspiracies and paid-off shills, there is just no evidence, none, that support any claim that there is peanut oil in vaccines.

When this peanut oil issue was brought to my attention yesterday, I thought “this is a joke, right?” Because it must be.

I then thought that I’m going about this all wrong. It takes so little work to invent a lie, and so much work to refute it, I’m on the wrong side of the vaccine discussion. With my background in science, I’d be a much better cherry picker than these lunatics at the various vaccine liars websites. And I could write out a whole bunch of scientific nonsense, using the best principles of pseudoscience, to make up fecal-based antivaccine propaganda. I could get rich. I could be the next Andrew Wakefield. I could be the famous* Skeptical Raptor who changed his mind about vaccines.

    Have you heard of Dr. William Thompson? He is the CDC whistleblower who confirmed by evidence the CDC demanded be destroyed that the CDC is aware that the MMR is linked to autism in African American children. Where was that story on major media? Where was the story of the million man march where this was the primary concern for African Americans? Speaking about lying liars that lie, you’re defending the biggest and best of them who are indeed causing and doing child abuse that is permanent and severe. I believe those against vaccines have either been injured or saw those they love injured by vaccines. All this is no different than the days when big tobacco had doctors, reports, and people like you saying there was no link between smoking and lung cancer.

      ADJUVANT 65-4 was patented by Merck and contained more than 60% peanut oil.

      • Yup 50 years ago. Big Pharma patents a lot of shit just in case. And in this case, they never used it.

    Well, first off, you’ve confused adjuvants and excipients, so you’ve lost credibility there. Second, you make statements of fact without referencing your sources. So really, you’re no better than those you’re ranting against, it’s just that they have a different opinion than yours.

    • No opinions here. Just scientific evidence dumbass. The difference between the two is ridiculous minor, but since you have no fucking evidence, you have to go for picking on the minor shit. Wow. Are you so proud to be that ignorant and delusional?

    I’m sorry ,but in all this blabbing on, has anyone thought of a good reason peanut allergies have continued to rise in conjunction with the vaccine schedule that also continues to rise? There is peanut oils in vaccines. plain and simple
    http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/allergies/vaccines-and-the-peanut-allergy-epidemic/

    If we are calling names, I have to call this author how I see them. A sheep. you call me a liar? You are nothing but a follower to the herd. A blind herd. And you my pal are just like most people….most people cannot think for them selves. they need to be told by mainstream media and reseachers what to believe. Mainstream media and researchers that are owned and paid by big pharma to report on “news” and studies.

    • Autism rates have increased as organic food sales have. And that’s the failure of attempting to conflate causation with correlation.

      You’re lack of critical thinking skills has allowed you to see sheep, when there is merely a skeptic. I don’t follow anything, except scientific evidence. And there isn’t one molecule of peanut oil in vaccines. Of course, if you’re going to use, as your source, an unreliable, unreviewed website, be my guest. Ignorance must make you happy.

      • AH
      • Chris Sky

        yea except the USA is the only country where Autism is an epidemic and we give the MOST vaccines..

        consequently USA is number for childhood

        1)autism
        2) diabetes
        3) add
        4) obesity
        5) food allergies
        6)asthma

        and after spending more on “healthcare” than any other country the USA falls to 34th in infant mortality rate (children dying before their first birthday)

        the only difference between the USA with Autism rates of less than 1 in 80 vs say Sweden (who gives less than 1/4 of the vaccines) and has an autism rate of GREATER than 1 in 1000
        ad doesn’t come close to any other of those childhood conditions SO COMMON in US children!

        but it’s NOT the vacccines…. because there are sooo many other contributing factors to children under 1 year of age 😀

        pro vaccine people are the same a pro global warming people.
        ignorant, uninformed, unable to think for them self, and compeltely insane.

    No peanut oil PRESENTLY in vaccines. But it came into being in the 1960s. See the ny times sept 18, 1964 for a discussion of this. None of us remember anyone with a peanut allergy growing up, now it is everywhere. Some suspect the additive was associated by the body with the germ vaccinated against and might have even passed such association genetically. Like any other thing there may or may not be a link. But people are often called crazy without really knowing. For years the same scientists told people margarine was better than butter, but now they love butter. They are getting ready to change the advisory on cholesterol as well , as they told people it was best not too eat too much . Sodium is going too. Science gives us lots of answers than reverses them. I am not anti-vaccine. But I believe the sheer number of vaccines might be leading to some changes in the immune system. Perhaps it needs to fight some things naturally to develop certain things who knows. Also why dont you look at the mystery rash cases in thousands of students across hundreds of schools in 32 plus states. In some schools it was just the 6th graders, in others just the 4th graders. Then of course we get those spontaneous case of a dozen girls getting Tourettes symptoms. There is something we do not know.

    • LMAO. Love your anecdotes. I think I’ll print it out and make paper airplanes out of it.

      • ctblizzard

        Dude it is easy to laugh at people. Take a minute and think to yourself. Growing up did you ever remember hundreds of schools closed for mystery rashes in students? Why don’t you just look it up. Back when they hit our state and my daughter had it, I sent some info to one of the town’s health directors who was studying the rash in their school. People had articles from over 30 states, yet the CDC downplayed it. Even went so far as to say all the kids made it up in their heads. Really!!!. I know it existed because my daughter had it, and hundreds of kids (mainly girls) in our state had it. Someone saved all the article titles for just one school system in my state. Scroll to the bottom and read scrolling up. Does this sound normal to you? Then google mystery rash schools. A bunch of people looked into this In one school there was a new mandatory 3 shot hep b vaccine that had to be taken before entry to the school that year. In another all the kids with rashes had taken shots at the same doc. I am not anti-vaccine but like I said things need to be looked at, and at times you cannot completely trust the Govt. Here is the link to start at the bottom and scroll up. Most if not all the links are dead but you can research this case or any of them on google.. For chronological order start at the bottom.. http://www.shastalake.com/clinic/salem.html

  • Bobsbride2

    Maybe no peanut oil present, but that’s not the least of concerns. Yum, let them inject your child with the common vaccines that contain formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, Fenton medium, Vero (monkey kidney) cells, aluminum, Stainer-Scholte liquid medium, human diploid lung cells from aborted fetus, human DNA, animal DNA, all still ending up in various trace amounts in your vaccines when completed. Find this hard to believe this is in your child’s vaccines? Check it out at the CDC site:

    http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf.

    Your child would be better off eating these ingredients, because the GI system is a natural filter. But instead, they are injecting this toxic filth into the blood system of your child via highly vascular muscle tissue.

    Check into the actual effectiveness rates of most common vaccines. They’re not as high as you think. Why else do you think they’ve increased the number of vaccinations needed in the past 40 years? They don’t work as effectively as once thought. Just like the start of vaccine history, with the early small pox and cow pox vaccinations, we are still practicing quack science that doesn’t work and uses fear-mongering and misinformation as its greatest tool.

    Being angry with the messenger is counterproductive to knowledge and change. Put your energy into researching both sides of the issue.

  • JenniferC

    My kid has a peanut allergy and would have swelled up at the first exposure to peanut oil via vaccine if that lie were true. The truth is, my kids have a genetic disposition to asthma and allergy and my peanut allergy kid was exposed in vitro as a result of my own consumption of peanut foods, and later via breastmilk (as was evidenced by a persistent case of eczema which only resolved when I eliminated peanuts from my own diet). I would like to find out why peanut allergy is on the rise, but I would like to avoid bad information presented by biased antivax charlatans.

    • I think there’s several things I should mention about peanut allergies:

      1. There has not been an increase in the rate. There has been an increase in the belief that it’s dangerous, which it isn’t.
      2. Mothers who consume peanuts during pregnancy have a much lower risk of children who develop peanut allergies. Of course, this isn’t zero risk, but it makes immunological sense.
      3. Eczema is a broad term used to describe numerous skin conditions, many of which are unrelated to allergic reactions. In fact, some may be related to autoimmune reactions. I don’t think peanuts would have anything to do with it. Acute peanut allergy expresses itself in typical allergic reaction which would have many signs, not just one.

      Like gluten sensitivity (a condition so rare, that I laugh anytime someone talks about it), peanut allergy has been overstated. Don’t blame yourself for eating peanuts during pregnancy, it almost assuredly didn’t cause anything. And I personally don’t think your skin condition is related to peanuts, absent other symptoms. It might have exacerbated a prior condition, but I doubt it caused it. I bet if you tried peanut butter again, nothing will happen.

      I’d be sad if I had to give up peanut butter. Salted peanuts. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

      • JenniferC

        I didn’t have eczema my baby did while she was nursing, that cleared up after we learned about her peanut allergy and I stopped eating peanut products. It wasn’t a big deal although I thought I couldn’t live without peanuts something about my attitude changed after watching my daughter react. Peanut allergies are on the rise, verified. My daughter has had reactions after eating peanut products, lest I be making it up, her allergy was subsequently confirmed by blood test and skin prick test. The parents who are acting like it is dangerous do so because they fear their kid will have a fatal reaction, one that is not stopped by the epipen injection, benadryl or steroids.

        How do you have the right to give someone you don’t know personal medical advice that could potentially be harmful? Are you claiming to be a scientific know-it-all or a ubiquitous god?

        My son, now 15 mos, had terrible full-body eczema, which emerged just after his first vaccine, which was the Dtap, at 6 mos of age. I suspected food allergies but my family, full of know-it-all doctors, laughed at me. My cousin, a dermatologist, said it wasn’t allergies and don’t bother checking. But they all agreed the eczema was severe. My mother-in-law, a doctor, thought it could be psoriasis.

        Thankfully I ignored them and took my son to a pediatrician who also thought I was crazy, but agreed to blood tests. They returned with high responses to dairy, egg whites and yolks, wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts except almonds. So he sent us to an allergist.

        While waiting for that appointment, I stopped nursing and cut all those foods from my son’s diet. By the time we saw the allergist, the eczema had disappeared. He told me there was no need to test as my son ‘clearly had no allergies.’ He couldn’t understand that we resolved the eczema without steroids.

        I pushed him for a skin test anyway, and there was again a very high response for all foods mentioned. If my son even touches yogurt, he breaks out in hives. The allergist signed us on the national peanut registry and sent us home with two Epi-pens and a return appointment in
        a year.

        Thankfully, cutting these foods out also cleared his insomnia. His entire life he screamed for hours to go to sleep at night and then would wake every hour and a half and be unable to get back to sleep. By cutting out the foods, he sleeps 12 hrs solid.

        I do not blame the Dtap explicitly because he always had a small patch of eczema on his face and he always had the irritability and insomnia. However, it may have greatly aggravated the situation.

        He did not get another vaccine until the Hib at 9 mos old. Three days after receiving it, he had projectile vomit, then suddenly broke out in full body hives, started breathing heavily, and spiked a fever. He did not ingest any allergenic foods and he was not sick. He had never done this before or since. I read statements by allergists that there can be an autoimmune response that causes hives, three days after the vaccine.

        You might think yourself smart, but I assure you are not an all-seeing eyeball. Your medical advice could be very harmful. Please adopt some humility. My biggest issue with those who take science as their religion, as you appear to, is how egotistically dogmatic they can be.

        Recognize this:

        1) nobody knows a child like the parents. Do not look down on parental instinct. This English teacher was laughed at by 6 doctors, 4 in her family, and was right.

        2) When you sound so egotistical, no one wants to listen.

    • multilis

      100 years ago allergies including allergies to peanut butter were extremely rare. Now they are are extremely common. Similar story wish asthma. Why the difference?

      Lots of theories. Vaccines having something that boosts immune response to *anything* (eg aluminum) is obviously a risk factor.

      As far as breast milk goes… recent study shows that helpful bacteria in breast milk helps baby be healthier and switch to solid food sooner. At same time you will find claims that absolutely no down side to pasteurizing milk… when obvious that cows milk also has “healthy bacteria” in it. So a person who buys/sells a share of milk from single cow (where disease risk is not great compared to mixing milk from thousands of cows) may end up with fines/jail in canada.

      matter of not properly looking at both sides of issue, 100 years ago it was openly said by leading scientists that vaccines may increase risk of allergies and was a tradeoff of risks.

      … if it was all genetic then we would expect similar percent of people with asthma 100 years ago… rather than huge soaring in rates in 1980s at same time that vacination rates soared. In last 30 years smog has been reduced, yet asthma has increased.

      Aluminum is not needed in a vaccine… it is something that makes vaccines *cheaper* by meaning less of main ingredient by boosting immune response to *anything*. perhaps we would be better off with fewer vaccines but none of them having generic boosters…. not really possible to find a study on that, just as it is not possible to find honest study on helpful bacteria in cows milk, you only can indirectly infer from how breast milk is better for babies because of the helpful bacteria.

      • ctblizzard

        The author calls people liars without knowing the truth. Peanut oil WAS used in vaccines. I posted info above, I will post a link to an abstract. It started in the 1960s, Its use was discontinued perhaps later . But the immune system associated the peanut oil with the reaction to the infectious agent, and perhaps this was genetically transferred from generation to generation. Maybe , maybe not, but Peanut oil was used. There are also NIH papers on it as well. here is a link to a 1964 article nytimes http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=9405E6DA113BE13ABC4152DFBF66838F679EDE

            You sound like an incredible jerk man, and here is why. First off I am not anti-vaccine. Both I and everyone I know has had all of them. I mentioned that. Second, you post stuff that calls into question whether peanut oil was in vaccines (“since you cant prove its not, then it must be” ) from your vaunted forum cut and paste. So I post that MERCK got a patent for peanut oil being used in vaccines and you say its a lame ass link. What is your problem? I even went so far as to say that I was not sure if the peanut oil in the vaccines was problematic or not but that things should be reviewed. You complain about peoples tone to you but when people post info that are not even anti-vaccine you get all toxic

            • SerenaJoy

              I am in favor of scheduled vaccinations and I am concerned about peanut allergies– but as a matter of logic, just because a study was done in 1967 or a patent was obtained it doesn’t mean that peanut oil is currently in vaccines. The ingredient lists are mandatory.

          • ctblizzard

            MERCK’s ADJUNVANT 65-4 an official us patent can eb found and it’s 60% peanut oil .

            it’s not hard to verify… unless of course you dont’ WANT to verify it , because it will prove you are a fool! 😀

    • Chris Sky

      becaues you got VACCINATED with Merck’s ADJUVANT 65-4 as a child which was 60% peanut oil! it’s patented and was hailed as a “medical miracle” yet people still are brainwashed to “believe” there was never peanuts in vaccines 😀

      that’s the ultimate in brainwashed… when ther eis literally a PATENT on the product, and people still denying it exists 😀

      • SerenaJoy

        The existence of a patent for a product which is obviously not in use doesn’t prove use. I am not allergic to peanuts and my other children are not allergic to peanuts. Just the one who is allergic to peanuts and who was first exposed if not in utero then via my breast milk because I ate peanut butter at the time.

        • Chris Sky

          REALLY… so how about the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE proving that NOT ONLY was “Adjuvant 65” made with Peanut oil… it was put into FLU VACCINES, and then in THIS STUDY added to CHILDRENS VACCINES and actually INJECTED INTO THE KIDS! 😉

          nice try though.. here’s the PEER REVIEWED PUBLISHED MEDICAL JOURNAL proving 1) peanut oil in vaccines 2) that they were indeed in widespread use, and injected into children’s vaccines as well 😉

            Here is a quote from the above blog.

            “One vaccine lying group uses 50-60 year old data from a study of vaccine adjuvants, which examined the usefulness of peanut oil and other compounds as adjuvants (a substance that enhances the immune response to an antigen), then claims that somehow the FDA/CDC/Big Pharma is hiding the fact that peanut oil is in vaccines, and is causing all of the claimed problems from vaccines.”

            Calm yourself down. My kids are vaccinated against diseases which might have killed them before age 5 only 60-70 years ago. My peanut allergic kid was already allergic before her first vaccination. My kids will continue receiving their scheduled vaccinations and I will receive my flu shot and age-appropriate boosters. You do you– and if you want to deny your kids potentially life saving vaccines that is your right but only as far as the public schoolhouse door. You don’t have the right to allow your children to be disease vectors to those with compromised immune systems who cannot be vaccinated.

              how is it a “lie” when there is 1) a patent for adjuvant 65 which is peanut oil based.
              2) linked ot a medical study that praises the effectivenesss of adjuvant 65 and talks about it’s widepsread use in influenza vaccine and then describes how it is now being injected into chidlren and mentally retarded peopl.e

              but it’s a “lie” because this blog said so!
              the patent is “fake”
              and the studies published in medical journals “never happend” because it’s a “lie” right?!

              is that your final answer?! 😀 now look in the mirror and try to keep a straight face.

            • SerenaJoy

              Even if everything you allege were true and peanut oil was “widely used” in vaccines during the 1960s, it hasn’t been used in recent decades. So the argument is irrelevant.

            • Chris Sky

              that’s also a lie.. after 1973 when the first instance of peanut allergies started surfacing and studies started showing the connection the BIG PHARMA used their influence to change the laws.. they not longer have to list all the ingredients in the vaccine as “formula” is considered INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY protected by US PATENTS!

              and wouldn’t ya know it… a family who was charged in court with “SIDS” when their child died from brain swellling hired an expert to test their vaccines and wouldnt’ ya know it.. they found “traces” of “peanut protein” in the vaccine, which was determined by the courts to be the cause of the child’s death and the parents WON.

              so 1) no they dont’ have to tell you what’s in vaccines

              2) court has already proven there is STILL traces of peanut protein in vaccines 😉

              i suggest you look at this article explaining vaccine “Intellectual Property Rights” specifically how they can “protect” the “formula” of their “Adjuvants” (aka peanut oil!) furthermore… keep reading to the part where it akcnolwedges that MANY vaccines use “technology that is 30 years old” in production 😉

              The CDC website has plenty of information that demonstrates how much you have lied in the comment thread, or cited to other lies. But I already know you don’t believe the CDC so it is pointless. I find the CDC more credible than any of your propaganda. The mission of the CDC is to control disease and study factors affecting public health. My peanut allergic child has had all of her scheduled vaccinations and has not experienced any adverse reactions so I am satisfied her vaccines do not contain peanut oil. She was briefly allergic to eggs and outgrew that, her physicians always noted whether a vaccine used eggs in production and she never experienced a problem. The anti-vaccine movement is a sad example of mass hysteria and you are a part of that.

              Vaccine ingredients:

              Measles outbreaks 2014-15. A majority of the patients were not vaccinated. A significant number of patients were of unknown vaccination status. Of those who were vaccinated, most had not received all three scheduled doses.

              the PRIVATELY FUNDED CDC is more “Credible” than peer reviewed, published medical journals 😀 😀 😀 😀 D:D 😀 i love it. next you can cite Monsanto to tell me how “roundup” is a healthy pesticide 😀

              CDC, WHO, FDA… all privately funded… all made to give a false sense of security and legitmacy.

              you know the CDC, WHO, and FDA all approved countless drugs that killed millions… think of VIOX.. FDA approved for “safety” that killed over 500,000 people 😀

              but yup.. the CDC, FDA, WHO all have “your health interests” and not their bottom line in mind 😀

            • SerenaJoy

              CDC is a federal agency of the U.S. Government. You have proven yourself to be a repeat liar I have no reason to respond further to any additional comments you may make as I believe you are either completely dishonest or sincerely & passionately convinced that the lies you tell are true. Either way you are not credible.

            • Chris Sky

              the CDC .a FEDERAL AGENCY… meanwhile the CDC gets 100% of it’s funding from the PRIVATE NON RELATED NON FEDERAL CORPORATION called
              “THE CDC FOUNDATION” 😉 (A Georgia PRIVATE CORPORATION)

              BIG DIFFERENCE, sweetheart! 😀

              BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG DIFFERENCE!

              read the actual description of where the CDC get ALL it’s funding (hence who CONTROLS what it says and does!)

              “The CDC Foundation[34] operates independently from CDC as a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the State of Georgia. The creation of the Foundation was authorized by section 399F of the Public Health Service Act to support the mission of CDC in partnership with the private sector, including organizations, foundations, businesses, educational groups, and individuals.”

            • SerenaJoy

              I looked at your links. The foundation is a charitable entity doing amazing public works and you could donate to it, anyone could donate if they look at the projects and see public health as worthwhile. Corporations often donate to non profits it does not mean automatically that there is sinister motive or intent. The CDC is a taxpayer funded federal agency. I am not trying to convince you of facts which are objectively verifiable– you have the disadvantage of having to rely upon propaganda and hysteria which is unconvincing.

            • Chris Sky

              THE CDC foundation is the PRIMARY FUNDING SOURCE for the CDC and it’s “MEMBERS” are GLAXO SMITH KLEIN, NOVARTIS, and MERCK

              so you’re literally gonna sit there and say there is “NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST” when the vacccines manufacturers are FUNDING the research at the FEDERAL AGENCY that’s supposed to be MONITORING the big pharma companies?!

              are you telling me you’re that ignorant and niave?!

              that’s literaly the SAME as MERK, NOVARTIS, or GSK doing their “own” studies on their own vaccines to tell you they are safe! 😀

              for the ignorant.. it works like this
              CDC FOUNDATION : “hey we just got 10 million dollar DONATION for research from GSK, MERK and NOVARTIS!”

              CDC federal agency scientist: “I have some reserach that could show a link between vaccines and allergies.. i need 1 million dollars.:

              CDC federal agency scientist 2: “I have some research that could show NO link between vaccines and allergies… I need 5 million dollars, plus 1 million for “expenses”

              CDC Foudation. Scientist 2.. no proble,… here’s 6 million dollars… Scientist 1.. sorry, our Funding PArtners don’t believe your research is in THEIR BEST INTEREST! no funding for you !:D

              and THATS how it works!

              the vaccine companies pay a FEW MILLION to FUND AND CONTROL the “Watchdog” federal agency to investigate their own products, and tell you it’s safe!

              so they spend a FEW MILLION to protect the HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS in profit!

              and if you think they FUND THE CDC so they can “help” and not so they can CONTROL THE INITITIAVE THE RESEARCH and THE MESSAGE…

              well Serena Joy you are a special kind of stupid. 😀

              99.9999% of people can see a conflict of interest when the vaccine manufacturers are funding the research that’s supposed to prove the safety of their vaccine!

              lol you REALLY think the billion dollar vaccine manufacturer would give 1 red cent to a CDC scientist who wasn’t going to do a “Favorable” report on their products?! like REALLY REALLY!?

              but nope… that’s just “Hysterical Propaganda” we can TOTALLY TRUST Novartis, MERCK and GSK to fund their own reserach to tell us our products are SAFE

              congratulations.. you’re officially BEYOND help.. thankfuly anybody with a brain reading this will understand 1000%

              CDC (the actual Federal Agency) is not to be CONFUSED (which is EXACTLY what they are trying to do) with it’s PARENT, PRIVATE, FUNDING SOURCE

              incorproated in Georgia as a PRIVATE CORPORATION

              called “The CDC FOUNDATION”

              http://www.cdcfoundation.org/

              “The CDC foundation: Helping the CDC do MORE, FASTER (controlling funding and controlling research!)

              our mission:
              “The CDC foundation helps the CDC do more, faster, by FORGING EFFECTIVE PARTNERSHIPS between the CDC and “OTHERS” (PRIVATE BIG PHARMA CORPORATIONS!) to fight threats to health and safety.”

              now please tell me that a a “federal agency” that exists only through “private funding” from Big Pharma is really going to get funding or a green light on any research that will hurt Big Pharmas income? 😀

              and please dont’ tell me theres no diifference between the “CDC” and the “CDC FOUNDATION” because 1 is a government agency.. the other is a PRIVATE CORPORATION that controls the Federal Agency!

              (like the “Federal Reserve Bank” is about as “Federal” as “Federal Express”)

              a little bit of truth and facts.

              from the “CDC FOUNDATION” (private corp) website
              under the section “WHO ARE WE”

              “OUR STORY”
              Resources and Flexibility for CDC

              The CDC Foundation helps CDC pursue innovative ideas that need SUPPORT from OUTSIDE PARTNERS (Big Pharma). The support needed is MOST OFTEN FUNDING….” 😀 (nuf said.)

              wait.. this is the BEST PART!:

              Added VALUE for Our Partners (Big Pharma)

              Partnering with the CDC Foundation offers benefits BEYOND the value of a typical charitable donation. Businesses, philanthropies and organizations find that working with the CDC Foundation:

              Accelerates and expands important public health initiatives that align with their mission and work. (read that again… ACCELERATES INITIATIVES THAT ALLIGN WITH THEIR MISSION AND WORK!.. .like making billions of dollars!)
              Creates mutually beneficial collaborations with world-renowned CDC scientists (direct CONFLICT OF INTEREST right here!.. imagine a CDC scientist find something that his private funding “partner” doesn’t like. i wonder if we would EVER hear about it?!?)
              Simplifies the process of partnering with a complex federal agency

              … When PRIVATE COMPANIES are OPEN PARTNERS with the government agency that’s supposed to be monitoring them… if you don’t think there’s a HUGE conflict of interest (your interests and safety) in the name of PROFITS…. well it’s not me being a “liar”… it’s just you being incredibly naive and ignorant.

            • Chris Sky

              pps: why don’t you have a look at the list of “PRIVATE FUNDING PARTNERS” from the CDC Foundation (a private corporation not to be confused with the CDC, a federal agency) whose “partners” FUND AND CONTROL the “Federal Agency” known as the CDC 😉

              http://www.cdcfoundation.org/what/partners#category-299

              here.. i’ll list some of the most IMPORTANT “partners” who fund the “vaccine research” at the CDC Federal Agency.

              MERK
              NOVARTIS VACCINES
              GLAXOSMITH KLEIN

              … and now you’re gonna sit there and try to tell me I’m “stupid” for thinking that the companies who make billions of dollars off vacccines and FUND the CDC are going to give money and a “green light” to research that could hurt their profits?! you think they “Donate” to the CDC to make their products “safer” 😀

              if you’re still in denial after this.. you should check your self into a mental hospital because you need help! I can understand that you have been fooled… because they go to great lengths to confuse and trick people… but when the evidence is in black and white in front of your face… there’s no more head in the sand!

            • John Smith

              Chris, look up Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, for some validation to your comments. You may already be aware of his story but you would have found it anywhere other than mainstream media. It was posted to CNN but they removed it over 20 times.

            • Chris Sky

              ps: it’s your vaccinated children (many with live virus vectors) that pose the BIGGEST threat to the immune compromised! everybody knows that recently vaccinated children are the most contagious 😀 or did you misss the recent MEASLES OUTBREAK where the majority of children had been vaccinated?! but im sure there was just somethign wrong with that “particular vaccine”
              and the Flu vaccine is SO EFFECTIVE you need it each year, and tens of millions of VACCINATED people STILL get the flu each year 😀

              great “logic” i can tell you’re a very smart person who does all your own research and doens’t just do what she’s told blindly like an idiot…

            • SerenaJoy

              It is too bad that you don’t value the overabundant scientific research that resulted in the current vaccine schedule. The reason there are new flu vaccines each year is because there are a multitude of different flu strains and the annual vaccine can only address 1-4 of the most likely strains to affect a region. That is also the reason some people get sick with a flu virus during a year they received a vaccine– they were not vaccinated against the strain of virus that they contracted. Your argument about recently vaccinated children shedding virus is hysterical nonsense.

            • Chris Sky

              so in other words.. you’re injecting a vaccines with absolutely NO EVIDENCE that you will be protected from the “right strain of flu” acknowledging there are at least 4 different ones floating around each year… so EVEN IF YOU BELEIVE a vaccines is “100% effective” (which we know they are not) you’re still only getting a MAXIMUM flu protection of “25%” 😀 …. but lets inject poison into my body EACH YEAR.. because formadlhude, aluminum, presevatives and unkonwn countless toxins are “Good” for you… to provide a 1 in 4 chance of not getting a cold 😀 “vaccine logic!”

            • John Smith

              Serena, you’re only seeing one side of the story. Look up Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, who produced evidence that the CDC is destroyed evidence that autism is directly linked to the MMR vaccine in African American children. If it’s linked to African Americans, rest assured it’s linked to other races as well. People are very passionate about this but just look and see that there is other evidence being hidden from you. That should also scare you because you’re trusting wholeheartedly lying liars that lie. We are all just a dollar bill to big pharma and the fat cat shareholders.

            • SerenaJoy

              http://www.snopes.com/medical/disease/cdcwhistleblower.asp
              False. Spreading false disinformation with the intent to frighten new parents & with the effect of increasing risks of potentially deadly childhood illness is a kind of an evil which you are perpetuating.

        • kimsaria

          But if you took thalidomide it would not have affected you… or even made you feel better… but then affected your child negatively.

          So there is a correlation between medicating the parent with the exacerbated reaction being illustrated in the offspring. There are many more examples of this that are just as clear as the thalidomide example.

          I’m not saying it is so here. But it is definitely a possibility.

    • Disqus considered this spam, and I almost deleted it. But I’ll allow you to embarrass yourself.

      Do you know what Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle medium is? I do. It’s a growth media made of water, salts, amino acids, and glucose. It’s how we grow cells. Do you know what synthetic Asparagine is? Since all amino acids, whether “synthetic” or “natural” are the exact equivalent chemical, it doesn’t matter.

      Do you know what most of this stuff does? Do you what is left behind when the vaccine is made? No, I thought not. You’re one of those people who, because they are so uneducated, look at complex words and assume they are something, when they are nothing.

      And more typical of someone who thinks that anything on the internet must be true, you completely and utterly ignore the facts about Jonas Salk and mineral oil. In the early 1950’s, they didn’t know how to safely give the polio vaccine to children, because, it was the fucking 1950’s, where medicine was ancient. It was never tested in children because another brilliant scientists convinced Salk to try another path because they hypothesized that mineral oil would be dangerous.

      Seriously. Get an education. You’re ignorant.
