Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines – What you should know about the safety science

Main cellular targets affected by aluminum and aluminum related diseases Aluminum

Introduction

Aluminum (Al), as AAHS (amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate), aluminum hydroxide, or aluminum phosphate, is used as an adjuvant in a number of inactivated and subunit vaccines in order to provoke an immune response. While aluminum has no purpose in the human body and is a known toxin, there have been no studies to determine a safe level of aluminum, or of most other ingredients, in vaccines. Instead, the allowable amounts of aluminum that are sometimes used as a guideline for safety reviews, refer to allowable amounts of dietary aluminum. An infant (even one who is premature) is injected on day 1 with the Hepatitis B vaccine; a newborn of average birth weight will receive a 17-fold greater amount of aluminum than it would have had the amount been adjusted for body weight. Far from being a harmless adjuvant, aluminum poses serious health consequences for many vaccinees.

Key Points

  •  Aluminum adjuvants are promoted as safe and effective, yet:
    •  Scientists have been aware of aluminum toxicity as early as 1921
    •  The World Health Agency lists aluminum as a cause of neurodevelopmental disorders
  •  Aluminum is particularly dangerous for infants, the elderly, and those with impaired renal function
  •  Individuals involved in vaccine science, including vaccine manufacturers, do not fully understand metals or have knowledge of toxicological research
  •  Aluminum’s mechanism of action is not well understood.
  • Up to .85 mg of aluminum are allowed in each vaccine dose, per the FDA. Scientists do not know how this figure was arrived at.
  •  There have been no studies to determine a safe limit of injected aluminum
  •  Weak studies are used to justify the use of aluminum in vaccines and the vaccine schedule
  •  Aluminum deranges body chemistry.
  • Aluminum:
    • Inhibits over 200 important biologically important functions
    •  Interferes with the body’s use of calcium, magnesium, Vitamin K, and hydrogen
    •  Induces DNA damage
    • Interrupts bone formation resulting in spontaneous fractures
    •  Can accumulate in the body when bypassing the gastrointestinal barrier (as with vaccines), resulting in aluminum overload
    •  Negatively impacts the male reproductive system
  •  Aluminum has been found to cause severe and chronic illness including:
    • Encephalopathy (brain disease), dementia and impaired neurological development, osteopenia (low bone density), and osteomalacia (softening of bones to do impaired bone metabolism)
    • Macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF)
    • Allergy to aluminum
    •  Aluminum induced bone disease
    •  Many autoimmune/inflammatory diseases
    • Autism; aluminum is found in excessive amounts in the brains of autistic individuals
    •  Epilepsy
  •  Concurrent exposure to both aluminum and mercury may have added dangers
