How Do Aluminum Adjuvants Work?

Over the years the chemical compound of aluminum, has been used in a wide variety of vaccines to act as stimulant when injected into the human body. It should be noted, that aluminum is a non-essential metal when it comes to human function. That is why Dr. Christopher Exley, a funded researcher at the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute, has written an article to raise awareness of aluminum adjuvants.

It goes without saying that many people do not know of all the ingredients used in vaccinations or what they actually do, which is why, knowledge on such a topic is vital to the safety of patients.

Often, doctors will tell patients very little about the possible side effects of vaccines because even they do not really know what could happen. Did you know vaccine manufactures are protected by trade secrets and they don’t have to reveal all the ingredients in a vaccine? This means your trusted doctor may not have all the answers to your questions or even know what he is about to inject into your body. Situations like this, can make patients wary of getting even the flu shot.

Aluminum adjuvants are used to excite the immune system when injected in a vaccine, this is so that your body can react to the injection. However, aluminum adjuvants have been linked to various adverse reactions. which raises the question: why are they still being used?

In Exley’s article “The immunobiology of aluminum adjuvants: how do they really work,” he identifies ‘the many ways that aluminum chemistry contributes to the wide and versatile armory of its adjuvants, such that future research might be guided towards a fuller understanding of their role in human vaccinations.’ In laymen terms, the use of aluminum adjuvants have yet to undergo intense clinical studies and continued use of them could pose serious health risks. Understanding the neurotoxicity of the aluminum adjuvants, is the key issue at hand because numerous studies and cases have noted many ill-effects using this added ingredient.

Until recently, the lack of research regarding aluminum was alarming; however, current efforts, may raise awareness of adverse reactions, which can help guide clinicians and chemical engineers to revise these practices in manufactured vaccines.

Just like the many disclaimers we read about on drugs, the user may experience specific reactions, ‘as individuals, will not all respond in an identical manner, either in the short or long term, to injection of aluminum into our tissue.’

Three Women Suffer from Primary Ovarian Failure Following HPV Vaccination

Funded CMSRI researchers conducted a study, after three women developed secondary amenorrhea and primary ovarian failure following HPV vaccinations. Lucija Tomljenovic and Yehuda Shoenfeld found links to the development of their conditions and the adjuvants found in HPV vaccinations.

The researchers partnered with Serena Colafrancesco and Carlo Perricone to fully investigate the issue. All three women suffered from secondary amenorrhea, which is the absence of a menstrual cycle.

Their problem was not resolved using hormone replacement therapies. The researchers found auto-immune antibodies in two of the patients, anti-ovarian and anti-thyroid respectively, suggesting that the HPV vaccine triggered an autoimmune response. However, all three patients experienced common post-vaccination symptoms including:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Arthralgia
  • A range of cognitive and psychiatric disturbances

The researchers concluded that evidence of adjuvants in the HPV vaccine could trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition, as they saw with the amenorrhea.

In recent news, a new syndrome, called autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), or Shoenfeld’s syndrome, has been making its way into the medical field.

ASIA involves immune-mediated conditions that appear following a chronic stimulation of the immune system, by agents with adjuvant characteristics.

The post-vaccination autoimmune responses are a major concern regarding ASIA. HPV vaccines and others are known for their use of aluminum adjuvants, which are neurotoxins. These adjuvants are creating correlations between adverse reactions, as these cases suggest. Two of the patients who were studied were sisters who both developed primary ovarian failure. The sisters, 13 years old and 14 years old, received three HPV vaccinations with worsening side effects, including irregular periods, thereafter, resulting in a total absence of their menstrual cycles.

The third woman began the administration of the HPV vaccine at the age of 21 and developed irregular menstrual cycles. The patient underwent therapy, but by the age of 23, she suffered from amenorrhea and Medroxy-progesterone. Estradiol therapy was attempted but it did not improve her clinical condition.

Tomljenovic and Shoenfeld ruled out all other possible causes for the three patients diagnosed with primary ovarian failure (POF). They concluded that the HPV vaccination was the root of the adverse reactions because the patients were all clinically healthy before they were vaccinated.

Among the startling statistics regarding POF, it only affects one percent of women under 40 years old and 0.01 percent of women under the age of 20. It is an important cause of infertility and psychological stress. The results can have significant consequences for these women’s future health and their prospects of motherhood. The origins of POF have been widely debated and the evidence found in this case strongly supports its association with toxic adjuvants entering the body and negatively manipulating autoimmune responses.

French Parliament Investigates HPV Vaccination Campaigns

A three hour debate in Paris concerning the safety, efficacy and necessity of HPV vaccines in French cervical cancer prevention programs was presented to the French Parliament, French Senate, health authorities, medical professionals and the public in May. This discussion was the first time a western government has called experts to testify about the adverse reactions to vaccines.

The debate was spurred by an open letter to the French Minister of Health calling for investigative action towards various aspects of HPV vaccination campaigns. The letter was signed by more than 200 medical professionals, confirming their agreement about safety concerns regarding the vaccines.

CMSRI funded researchers from around the world were in attendance at the debate to weigh in on this hot topic. They shed light on various issues to the discussion board about aluminum adjuvants and human papillomavirus, also known as HPV.

A member of the European Parliament opened the meeting with a speech that stated research findings and the actions necessary to protect the public health. Michele Rivasi opened with – Vaccines are unnecessary, dangerous to many and certainly a huge drain on public health funds.

Rivasi mentioned CMSRI advisory board members and funded researchers during her opening speech by highlighting the findings from Christopher Shaw, Lucija Tomljenovic, Stephanie Seneff, Yeduda Shoenfeld, Chris Exley, and Romain Gherardi – blaming the toxicity of aluminum salts used as adjuvants in vaccines cause adverse reactions.

The injection of aluminum salts could be the source of the unexplained “increase in the number of pathologies reported because they migrate through the body until they reach and accumulate in the brain.  In certain predisposed individuals, very serious adverse effects have been observed following vaccination: death, convulsions, fainting, autistic disorders, Guillain-Barre syndrome, transverse myelitis, facial paralysis, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases, pulmonary embolisms, macrophagic myofasciitis, pancreatitis and others.”

After Rivasi continued with other statements, she urged the need of extensive research before the parliament continues to vaccinate. Finishing with – research before consent, you can’t unvaccinate.

The discussion led to four round tables where CMSRI researchers presented their findings to the French Parliament and others, making the open forum history. The open conversation in Paris is paving the way for other countries to examine the risks vaccines pose on health.

Vaccines: Showing Signs of Problems in People and Animals

The mission at Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute has always been specifically geared to address emerging health threats, including those posed by vaccines. The biological and genetic reactivity of vaccine additives like mercury preservatives, aluminum adjuvants and other toxic agents can have negative affects when administered to children; now there may be some relating evidence with animals and vaccinations.

Drawing on stronger evidence that vaccines induce adverse reactions, injections given to both people and animals are showing signs of negative health effects.

Just like humans, household pets are usually recommended to be vaccinated for various diseases, but could these injections be damaging to their overall health? Over $28 billion were spent by pet owners just on veterinary bills in one year, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). In relation to this data, the AVMA found that 84 percent of dog owners had their dogs vaccinated that same year.

A Colorado-based veterinarian, Dr. Brad Hines, believes vets do over-vaccinate for some diseases. While caring for a dog diagnosed with immune mediated hemolytic anemia, otherwise known as IMHA, he says vaccinations play a role in the development of the disease, but the hard part is proving the association. IMHA causes an animal’s immune system to attack red blood cells, and the odds of surviving the disease are dismal.

In an article by Dr. Wendy Brooks, she says that IMHA has no apparent cause, but in some cases, something triggers the reactions. Drugs most commonly implicated include penicillins, trimethoprim-sulfa, and methimazole; these drugs could induce a reaction that will stimulate the immune system in seeking out proteins that resemble the drug, ultimately attacking the red blood cells. Without adequate controlled research, the causal factors cannot be precisely determined.

Hines does support the use of vaccinations, however, making clear not to over-vaccinate.

A veterinarian based in California, Dr. W.Jean Dodds, has spent years researching animal vaccinations and says there is a close association with vaccinations and certain illnesses. In an article written by Dodds, titled “Changing Vaccine Protocol,” she points out research findings showing that 38 dogs for every 10,000 were adversely affected by vaccines. She also reveals that certain factors raise a dog’s risk of negative reactions, including multiple vaccines given at the same time with increased risks for small breeds.

Dodds says the dosage amounts of vaccines given to small dogs and large dogs should be different because of the diverse proportions of breeds. She notes that other countries use smaller dosages which work just as well, if not better for the animal.

Another safety consideration promoted by veterinarians for pet health that pediatricians have not heeded is the removal of the mercury based preservative, Thimerosal, from pet vaccines. Thimerosal is still contained in most flu shots, which are recommended during pregnancy, at 6 months of age, and every year throughout life. The decision to remove mercury from pet vaccines was made 10 years before the recommendation was made by the American Academy of Pediatrics to remove mercury from most, but not all pediatric vaccines.

However, Dr. Jeff Fankhauser of the Colorado Veterinarian Medicine Association says the risks of vaccinating animals are small compared to the consequences of not vaccinating them, adding that vaccines are essential to keep pets healthy. No scientific evidence was provided for this assertion, but this belief is shared by many veterinarians. Like Fankhauser, many medical doctors are still standing by the recommended vaccine schedule for children as well, but the trends of vaccination are changing as parents learn more about vaccines.

Other animals are displaying adverse effects from vaccines other than just the common household pet.

A relatively new post-vaccine syndrome called Autoimmune Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants, also known as ASIA, is being found in commercialized sheep. This syndrome has developed from vaccine ingredients that trigger disease. The sheep that were injected showed symptoms of extreme cachexia, poor wool coat, redness of the skin, atrophy of muscular masses and generalized weakness.

Horses are one of the most heavily and frequently vaccinated domesticated animals and can suffer from adverse reactions. Health issues in horses linked to adverse vaccine reactions have included fever and nasal discharge, temporary blindness, muscle weakness and laminitis just to name a few.

Evidence and supporting research outlining adverse reactions to vaccines continues to be collected and is showing similar data between people and animals.

Research on mice, rats and primates administered age and weight adjusted vaccines or vaccine ingredients have revealed significant neurological, cognitive, social, motor and immune system impairments compared to saline control groups. The loss of motor neurons and other brain abnormalities have been observed. Many of these deficits resemble features of autism, autoimmune diseases, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities and chronic illnesses that have affected increasing numbers of children over the past three decades. No evidence has emerged that unvaccinated or undomesticated animals are suffering similar adverse health effects.

How Metallomics is Supporting the Mission of Dwoskin Family Foundation in Discovering Root Causes of Autism

Scientists from the Health Science Library and La Belle Vie Research Laboratory in Tokyo, Japan, used metallomics to understand the roles metals play in people with autism.

For the study, hair samples from 1,967 children aged 0-15 were used to identify 26 trace elements.  Some of these elements included zinc, magnesium, and calcium (Metal Group 1), as well as aluminum, cadmium, and lead (Metal Group 2).

What the study found was that children with deficiencies of Metal Group 1 accounted for 1,000+ of the study’s participants and that children with high burdens of Metal Group 2 accounted for about 600 participants. Read more

Researcher for Dwoskin Family Foundation Helps Expose Aluminum’s Detrimental Long-Term Side Effects

Dr. Christopher Shaw was recently mentioned in an article that covered a new post-vaccine syndrome called Autoimmune Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA).

At the 3rd International Symposium on Vaccines, it was announced that a world registry would be created for ASIA.

According to the article on ASIA by Green Med Info, ASIA’s diagnostic criteria includes “weakness, anxiety, rashes, chronic fatigue, sleep disorders and the onset of a range of autoimmune diseases from Systemic Lupus Erythematosis to Rheumatoid Arthritis.” These side-effects, linked to vaccines containing aluminum, typically occur years after exposure to aluminum and other toxic adjuvants.
