The Problematic Ingredients Series

We’ve graduated some of the most amazing parents, leaders, and activists and
created an exciting community.


Problematic Ingredients – Aluminum

Aluminum is the 3rd most common element on the planet yet no known form of life uses it for its metabolic process. Why is that and why is it used as an adjuvant in vaccines? You may be surprised to learn the effects of this ingredient on the body and the ramifications it has on the brain.


Problematic Ingredients – Mercury

Mercury has been used as a preservative in vaccines since the 1920s. The argument is made that there is more mercury in tuna fish than in a vaccine, therefore, the mercury in vaccines is harmless, but is this true? In this module you will learn the truth about the neurotoxicity of BOTH environmental mercury and the mercury in vaccines.


Problematic Ingredients – Adjuvants

An adjuvant is “a substance which accelerates, prolongs and enhances the quality of a specific immune [antibody] response when incorporated into a vaccine formulation.” Since the turn of the 20th century, when they were first used in the production of diphtheria anti-toxin, many chemicals have been investigated and introduced as adjuvants in vaccines, and more are being developed. What are the reasons for adjuvant use, and what side effects might they have?


Problematic Ingredients – Chemicals

The list “Polysorbate 80, Borax, Formaldehyde, Gelatin, Latex, B-propiolactone, Triton X100, Ethylene oxide, Sodium deoxycholate” sounds like the ingredients of something you might find under the kitchen sink. However, these are some of the most toxic of the over 200 chemicals found in vaccines today. We discuss the chemistry and potential side effects of these ingredients.


Problematic Ingredients – Foreign Proteins

Vaccines contain not only the surface antigens from pathogens for which they are intended to provide immunity, but other animal, human and viral protein and cellular components, including fetal and tumor cells. This module explains the different types of foreign biological matter found in vaccines, and some of the potential problems arising from their use.
