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.’
