Proof that European H1N1 Vaccines Contain Mercury, Squalene and TWEEN 80

“The vaccine market is booming,” says Bruce Carlson, spokesperson at market research firm Kalorama, which publishes an annual survey of the vaccine industry. “It’s an enormous growth area for pharmaceuticals at a time when other areas are not doing so well.” mercola.com

The Different Shots

In the first part of this blog I will reveal the manufacturers that dispense their H1N1 vaccines to Eurhttps://1phil4everyill.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=2631&action=edit&message=1ope and what kind of toxic substances are in them. Secondly, I will home in on those substances and expand on the nature of their respective toxicities.

"Flu-pandemic - that's how we keep a lid on flu" (liberal translation, the original is punny)

As I was browsing the internet searching for official Dutch information on the H1N1 flu circus, the website called grieppandemie.nl caught my eye:

The “Veiligheid van het vaccin” (Safety of the vaccine) section, translates to:

Safety of the Vaccine

The vaccines that are currently being deployed have been developed over the last couple of years for the purpose of protecting against a variant of the virus that is now causing the flu-pandemic. The active component of the vaccine responsible for working specifically against this flu, the so-called antigen, has to be adapted. These adapted vaccines have to satisfy strict safety requirements for registration before they can be deployed.

The registration procedures for the new vaccins Foceteria and Pandemrix are currently pending with the European Medicines Agency (EMEA). The EMEA is an institute of the European Union, that oversees the safety of new medications. To this end, it demands high standards of safety requirements. grieppandemie.nl

So the EMEA is the agency to turn to in finding out what is in vaccines destined for member states of the EU. In addition to the Focetria (Novartis) and Pandemrix (GlaxoSmithKline) vaccines already approved for Europe, the EMEA also recommends another, supposedly adjuvant-free, vaccine called Celvapan from Baxter:

The EMEA writes:

The European Medicines Agency has recommended to the European Commission that an additional vaccine against influenza A(H1N1) (‘swine flu’), Celvapan from Baxter, be granted a marketing authorisation. Adoption of an authorisation decision by the European Commission is expected shortly.
This recommendation follows the authorisation of Focetria, from Novartis, and Pandemrix, from GlaxoSmithKline, by the European Commission on 29 September 2009.
As for Focetria and Pandemrix, this recommendation will allow the manufacturer to replace the flu virus strain in the current ‘mock-up’ vaccine with the A(H1N1)v strain causing the current pandemic.
Celvapan is a non-adjuvanted vaccine. This means that it does not contain ‘adjuvants’ to enhance the immune response. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) is currently recommending a two-dose vaccination schedule, at an interval of three weeks, for adults, including pregnant women, and for children from six months of age. Clinical trials in adults and in children are ongoing, and more results will become available from mid-October 2009 onwards.

Let’s first find out what’s in these first two vaccines, Focetria and Pandemrix, that have already been approved for use in Europe. Since it is emphasized in the above EMEA website excerpt that Celvapan contains no adjuvants, it is suggested that the other two do.

The Different Poisons

In the second section of this blog I indicate the nature of the toxicity (read: health risks) of the substances referenced in the previous section.

Mercury (Thimerosal or Thiomersal)

This part is an updated loose adaptation of a section of a previous blog of mine, called Toxic Mercury – Evidence of a Strong Poison.

What is this stuff?

Thiomersal (INN) (C9H9HgNaO2S), or sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate, commonly known in the United States as thimerosal, is an organomercury compound (approximately 49% mercury by weight) used as an antiseptic and antifungal agent.It was invented and patented by Morris Kharasch. The pharmaceutical corporation Eli Lilly and Company gave it the trade name Merthiolate and it has been used as a preservative in vaccines, immunoglobulin preparations, skin test antigens, antivenins, ophthalmic and nasal products, and tattoo inks. The compound is being phased out from routine childhood vaccines in the United States, the European Union, and a few other countries.[1]
Wikipedia (Thimerosal)

Here are two quotes from the CDC and the National Academies stating that thimerosal in vaccines is basically all fine and dandy:


“Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative used in some vaccines and other products since the 1930s. No harmful effects have been reported from thimerosal at doses used in vaccines, except for minor reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site. However, in July 1999, the Public Health Service (PHS) agencies, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure. Today, with the exception of some influenza (flu) vaccines, none of the vaccines used in the U.S. to protect preschool children against 12 infectious diseases contain thimerosal as a preservative.” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention“Based on a thorough review of clinical and epidemiological studies, neither the mercury-based vaccine thimerosal nor the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine are associated with autism… Five large epidemiological studies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Denmark, and Sweden since 2001 consistently provided evidence that there is no association between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism… ” National Academies press release about the IOM report “Immunization Safety Review: Vaccines and Autism,” May 18, 2004

Regarding the first quote, if “no harmful effects have been reported from thimerosal at doses used in vaccines” then, while reading the next sentence, why promote the push to eliminate it from vaccines? The quote of and by itself by its mere formulation is oxymoronic and therefore suspicion raising.

Here’s a Material Safety Data Sheet of thimerosal:

Primary Physical and Health Hazards: Skin Permeable. Toxic. Mutagen. Irritant (eyes).
Allergen. Nervous System and Reproductive Effects.Caution Statement: Thimerosal may enter the body through the skin, is toxic, alters genetic material, may be irritating to the eyes, and causes allergic reactions. Effects of exposure may include numbness of extremities, fetal changes, decreased offspring survival, and lung tissue changes.Routes of Entry: Inhalation and skin absorption.Effects of Overexposure: Topical allergic dermatitis has been reported. Thimerosal contains
mercury. Mercury poisoning may occur and topical hypersensitivity reactions may be seen. Early signs
of mercury poisoning in adults are nervous system effects, including narrowing of the visual field and
numbness in the extremities. Exposure to mercury in utero and in children may cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment. Based on animal data, may be irritating to the eyes.putchildrenfirst.org

Here’s a reference by a manufacturer of thimerosal (Sigma and Aldrich), given in the below picture, that provides it with T+,N hazard coding.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Source: nomercury.org

So what’s the meaning of these codes? The pictograms and hazard codes page indicates that T+ stands for “Extremely toxic” and N stands for “Dangerous for the environment.” Does that sound like stuff you want to have injected straight into your system?

Here is a portion of the abstract of a new peer-reviewed scientific study investigating thimerosal neurotoxicity. It states quite clearly that thimerosal induces autism-like neurotoxicity:

Thimerosal-induced cellular damage as evidenced by concentration- and time-dependent mitochondrial damage, reduced oxidative-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death in the in vitro human neuronal and fetal model systems studied. Thimerosal at low nanomolar (nM) concentrations induced significant cellular toxicity in human neuronal and fetal cells. Thimerosal-induced cytoxicity is similar to that observed in AD pathophysiologic studies. Thimerosal was found to be significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds examined.informaworld.com

Now compare this new find with the embarrassing position the CDC still maintains:

Recent estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring network found that about 1 in 150 children have an ASD. This estimate is higher than estimates from the early 1990s. Some people believe increased exposure to thimerosal (from the addition of important new vaccines recommended for children) explains the higher prevalence in recent years. However, evidence from several studies examining trends in vaccine use and changes in autism frequency does not support such an association. Furthermore, a scientific review* by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) concluded that “the evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism.” CDC supports the IOM conclusion. cdc.gov

Somebody better tell the CDC that thimerosal in vaccines is bad news after all. I doubt if they care to listen though.

In reference to the above new study one may argue that the study is an in vitro study and that to have a more accurate reflection of reality one should consider an in vivo study. In vitro here means direct application of mercury to the brain tissues examined. In vivo means here that the mercury is administered through needle into the bloodstream (of a living person). It depends on the strength of the blood-brain barrier whether or not this mercury will actually reach and affect the brain.

So the practical difference between an in vitro experiment and an in vivo experiment in this case is the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which if working to satisfaction should be able to obstruct thimerosal present in the blood from reaching the brain and so prevent it from doing damage.

This assumption however is obviously unjustified if and when the BBB is not working properly and as such is incapable of blocking mercury from entering the brain. So when is the BBB compromised? For one, the BBB is not fully functional in infants. Other reasons are given by Dr Blaylock:

Therefore, for the many people who have an impaired BBB, exposure to intramuscularly or intravenously administered thimerosal does make them vulnerable to develop autism-like disorders or symptoms.

For a more detailed narrative on how mercury and mercurial compounds cause brain inflammation that may trigger Autism-like symptoms please read the Appendix of Toxic Mercury.


What is this stuff?

Squalene is a natural organic compound originally obtained for commercial purposes primarily from shark liver oil, though botanic sources (primarily vegetable oils) are used as well, including amaranth seed, rice bran, wheat germ, and olives. All higher organisms produce squalene, including humans. It is a hydrocarbon and a triterpene. Squalene is a natural and vital part of the synthesis of cholesterol, steroid hormones, and vitamin D in the human body.[1] Squalene is used in cosmetics, and more recently as an immunologic adjuvant in vaccines.
Wikipedia (Squalene)

Looks pretty benign, no? Well, that seems to be the case if you consume it through regular channels, that is by eating or drinking it. The situation changes unfortunately when you have the stuff injected straight into your system. Now the substance suddenly is being perceived far from benign. You see when injected, squalene is then registered by your immune system as a foreign substance, i.e. something that should not be there. As a consequence, an immune response is triggered, meaning that your immune system will proceed with attacking squalene.

Unfortunately for you, squalene is not just present in the blood after you’ve received the flu shot. Squalene is also built-in into various nervous tissues across your body, including brain. So when your immune system attacks squalene it will also start attacking those bodily structures that have squalene incorporated in them as building blocks. That is, your own immune system becomes your own enemy. This is the essence of an autoimmune disease like for instance Gulf War Syndrome:

Data published in the February 2000 and August 2002 issues of Experimental and Molecular Pathology strongly suggests that Gulf War Syndrome is caused by a vaccine contaminated with squalene.

The August 2002 article is entitled “Antibodies to Squalene in Recipients of Anthrax Vaccine” (Exp. Mol. Pathol. 73,19-27 (2002)).Gulf War Syndrome, or GWS, is the term which has been applied to the multi-symptom rheumatic disorder experienced by many veterans of the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf war. A similar disorder appeared in 1990-1991-era personnel who were never deployed to the Persian Gulf theater of operations and also in other military personnel, including participants in the Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program, or AVIP, which was inaugurated in 1997. No data has ever suggested that the disorder experienced by the deployed 1990-1991 soldiers is different from the disorder experienced by the other groups of patients, but the other cases have not been considered to be cases of GWS.

Squalene was found by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in five lots of the AVIP anthrax vaccine. The discovery of serum anti-squalene antibodies and the development of a test to detect these antibodies has made it possible to see that links appear to exist between the contaminated AVIP vaccine lots, the illness experienced by post-1997 vaccine recipients, the illness experienced by non-deployed 1990-1991-era patients, and the illness in deployed 1990-1991-era patients that has been referred to as GWS.

The data establishing these links is presented in the peer-reviewed February 2000 and August 2002 articles. The published findings (1) strongly suggest that the GWS-like illness being reported by all of the various patient groups is the same illness, (2) strongly suggest that the contaminated vaccine caused the illness in the AVIP group, and (3) further suggest that squalene contamination of one or more 1990-1991-era vaccines accounts for the GWS cases from that era.autoimmune.com

Here’s the abstract of a scientific study which shows that Gulf War era troops suffering from GWS, whether or not they were deployed in the actual Gulf War, almost all had antibodies to squalene:

Antibodies to squalene in Gulf War syndrome.

Asa PB, Cao Y, Garry RF.Department of Microbiology, Tulane Medical School, 1430 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana, 70112, USA. PMBA@aol.comGulf War Syndrome (GWS) is a multisystemic illness afflicting many Gulf War-era veterans. The molecular pathological basis for GWS has not been established. We sought to determine whether the presence of antibodies to squalene correlates with the presence of signs and symptoms of GWS. Participants in this blinded cohort study were individuals immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm during 1990-1991. They included 144 Gulf War-era veterans or military employees (58 in the blinded study), 48 blood donors, 40 systemic lupus erythematosus patients, 34 silicone breast implant recipients, and 30 chronic fatigue syndrome patients. Serum antibodies to squalene were measured. In our small cohort, the substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%) GWS patients immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had antibodies to squalene. In contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum antibodies to squalene.

Also see a host of references to various scientific studies that link squalene to autoimmune disease:

Polysorbate 80 (TWEEN 80)

What is this stuff?

Polysorbate 80

Polysorbate 80 (commercially also known as Tween® 80) is a nonionic detergent and emulsifier derived from sorbitol and oleic acid, and is often used in foods, especially pickles. Polysorbate 80 is a viscous water soluble yellow liquid. The hydrophilic groups in this compound are polyethers which are polymers of ethylene oxide.Polysorbate 80 is often used in ice cream to prevent milk proteins from completely coating the fat droplets. This allows them to join together in chains and nets, to hold air in the mixture, and provide a firmer texture, holding its shape as the ice cream melts.
Other names

Polyoxyethylene sorbitan monooleate

Can it do harm? Yes it can!:

Polysorbate 80 in medical products and nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.

Coors EA, Seybold H, Merk HF, Mahler V.Department of Dermatology, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany.Polyoxyethylene-sorbitan-20-monooleate (also known as polysorbate 80 and Tween 80) is a solubilizing agent ubiquitously used in nutritives, creams, ointments, lotions, and multiple medical preparations (e.g., vitamin oils, vaccines, and anticancer agents) and as an additive in tablets. Whereas its relevance as a contact allergen has declined during the past decades, it is of current relevance as a “hidden” inductor of anaphylactoid reactions. OBJECTIVE: To identify polysorbate 80 (generally believed to be an inert vehicle) as an inductor of a severe anaphylactoid reaction. METHODS: Skin prick testing, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, IgE immunoblotting, and flow cytometric detection of basophil activation were performed in controls and in a patient with a medical history of anaphylactic shock due to intravenous administration of a multivitamin product during pregnancy. RESULTS: Polysorbate 80 was identified as the causative agent for the anaphylactoid reaction of nonimmunologic origin in the patient. Polysorbate specific IgE antibodies were not identified in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunoblot examinations, confirming the nonimmunologic nature of the anaphylactoid reaction. CONCLUSIONS: Polysorbate 80 is a ubiquitously used solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.

Here’s a link to a Wikipedia page that carries a description of anaphylactic shock.

In addition to the risk of inducing anaphylactic shock, it has been demonstrated by a 1993 Slovakian study that TWEEN 80 damages fertility in rats:

Delayed effects of neonatal exposure to Tween 80 on female reproductive organs in rats.

Gajdová M, Jakubovsky J, Války J.Institute of Preventive and Clinical Medicine, Limbová, Bratislava.Neonatal female rats were injected ip (0.1 ml/rat) with Tween 80 in 1, 5 or 10% aqueous solution on days 4-7 after birth. Treatment with Tween 80 accelerated maturation, prolonged the oestrus cycle, and induced persistent vaginal oestrus. The relative weight of the uterus and ovaries was decreased relative to the untreated controls. Squamous cell metaplasia of the epithelial lining of the uterus and cytological changes in the uterus were indicative of chronic oestrogenic stimulation. Ovaries were without corpora lutea, and had degenerative follicles. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov (pubmed)

  1. Well, I guess we know now why the German military and government are going to receive doses without the soft-kill ingredients, like Sqaulene and Thimerosol.

    The U.S. government says its doses do not contain any adjuvants like Sqaulene. Does anybody now if thie is true? Does the American vaccine contain Thimerosol? Tween 80?

  4. The fact that thirmerosol is being pulled from vaccines is not itself an indicator, necessarily, that harm has been recongised, but the precautionary principle is being followed, which is what we want to see happen. It may be the case that there has been evidence of the harm of the mercury which has been covered, but the removal of mercury vaccines is not such evidence and is simply a responsible, precautionary safety step. Mercury is always known to be toxic, so even if there were no studies to show its vaccine toxicity, it still makes sense to leave it out. However it seems there is evidence to indicate there may be harmful effects. There may be a coverup of the mercury problem, still, and there still may be harmful effects of it, certainly mercury should not be in there given its well known toxicity, we should not be taking these risks. Squalene as well is a dangerous risk and well as formaldahyde, and TWEEN 80. I hear the authorities wondering why people dont want the vaccine. Could it be maybe, just maybe that they contain poisons. How can these companies be trusted when they play games with peoples health and behave in such an arrogant way as to expose people to these possibly harmful substances?

  5. I don’t recall where I downloaded the document from, but I have a copy of the congressional record from May 21, 2003 showing there was an investigation regarding the link between autism and thimerosol. Some of the studies use the FDA’s own data. so there is no doubt THEY KNOW how harmful this stuff is.

  7. Guys, don’t take it. They developed the virus in american government labs, they released it on PURPOSE! Ever wondered why they made vaccine before the virus even appeared? This virus was destroyed back in 1918, and now doctors recreated it, made it more immune and sent it to 18 labs all over the world. Why? A(H1N1) contains viral code fragments from : Human influenza, Bird Flu from North America, Swine flu from Europe and Swine flu from Asia. How did that happen? Oh and by the way, check out this link :

  8. If all these excipients are so harmful for adult individuals, what might happen to the foetus ? I am pregnant in my 5th month and I am having twins. The gynecologists in Creece started to insist on having the vaccine when a woman is pregnant. But if squalene or Thimerosal or Tween 80 does so harm in the completed cells and tissues of an adult, how harm can it posiibly provoke to the under development organism of the foetus ? Probably the placenta protects the foetus from all these influences but….
    And although the technology of the H1N1 vaccines is very similar to those for the seasonal influenza, are there scientific data for the influence of influenza vaccines to pregnant women ?

  9. Thiomersal/ Phenylmercuric acetate etc- we’ve used these for years and years up until the early 1990s when unit dose injections were introduced due to concerns about HIV, hep c etc from using the same vial with 20 or more people. All the Aldrich chemical reagents have toxic warnings on them because every substance, including water, is toxic in a sufficient dose.
    Poisonous mercury refers to Mercury chloride, mercury inorganic salts and the vapour of mercury (used by hat makers to bend felt in olden times- hence the phrase “As mad as a hatter”. They do accumulate in the body and brain. Organic mercurials don’t as they are rapidly excreted due to the high water solubility. They are also inert chemically.

    Squalene- its one of the many new agents being developed to stimulate Toll Like recpetors of the innate immune system to get a bigger immune reaction to the vaccine. Most vaccines have, up until recently, been very poor vaccines because when you administer them by injection you give them by an unnnatural route eg swine flu is transmitted through lungs. Squalene, bile acids and a few others are particularly good at causing aimmune reactions. Toll Like receptors , like most receptors, were discovered in the Fruit Fly first ( drosophila) which Sarah Payne ridiculed in her election campaign in the USA Vice Presidential election. In fact, we know so much more about drugs and receptors because of drosophila and many of the drugs we take for blood pressure are based on drosophila receptors e.g. betablockers act through G proteins whose pathway was discovered in drosophila mutant , Son of Sevenless. We have similar receptors because at one point we shared a similar ancestor to flies and we inherited lots of their gene units ( but evolved them for our own purposes)

    Tween 80- we use these all the time- the 80 refers to a polymer length and the product we all use is called Washing -Up liquid/Fairy liquid. Tweens are pharmaceutical wetting agents and their soapy character keeps the vaccine in suspension when you make up the vial with water. Many laxatives are tween based .

    While I guess we’re lucky the swine flu seems to be mild, pandemic flus, swine flus and birdflus can be expected as almost yearly occurances due to the high population of the world- birdflu might be more dangerous.
    I think we better get use to vaccines

    • Who are you?; some kind of P.R. spokesperson for the vaccine industry?

      Thanks for the background information Yuki, you can give historical anecdotes and say how commonplace all these adjuvants are until the cows come home but that does not diminish their toxic potential one iota.

      The fact remains, vaccines are loaded with so much poisons that it boggles the mind when any rational mind decides to take them. I guess brainwashing goes a long way.

  10. p.s.- my nephew has developed dystonia overnight also but without getting a single vaccination, although I do suspect myself it might be related to Lyme disease as his brother was diagnosed with Lymes one month prior. But like Desiree dystonia has just suddenly come upon him, first as a weak wrist, then a backpain and now complete collapse and invalidity- we’re talking less than a year and progress from stable to wheelchair in the last 2-3 weeks only.
    Guillian barre, Dystonia, Type I diabetes may very well be related to evolution and the fact we all have slight differences in things like our Toll Like receptors. For example, its been shown that mice engineered with a MYD88 mutation in their T cell receptors develop type I diabetes when exposed to lipopolysaccarides from bacteria killed off in their guts deliberately by antibiotics. Its thought the MYD88 mutation introduced enhances the Toll-Like receptor 5 pathway to activate T-cells in the veins draining the pancrease and causing them to recognise the nearest thing i.e. the pancreas , as their target.
    This maybe the basis for a lot of reactions and maybe vaccine adjuvants cause similar effects in the one in a million people whose evolution has given them a slight mutation in a toll-like recptor but unfortunately this kind of thing will happen anyhow eventually as their fate without ever getting a vaccine – think of it: in 1918 3.6 % of people exposed to that swine flu died…….died. That is 1 in 33 people at a time when travel was unheard of and the population was 1.5 billion ( and only 500 million were even exposed)
    This is the future folks- climate cycles, flu pandemics of variable lethality. We have to embrace technology to survive or else our sheer numbers will cause our extinction . Get use to vaccines

    • Of course there will be people who fall ill to all kinds of ailments that are not due to vaccines. Vaccines are not the only source of disease (unfortunately). In order to establish a plausible causal relationship between vaccines and the incidence of some disease you always have to subtract the normal ‘background’ incidence of that disease. But even if you have done that, you are still left with an ‘unexplainable’ percentage of people who have gotten sick after taking vaccinations. The fact remains that vaccines do cause disease.

      It probably shocks you but have you ever given it some thought as to how strong the human immune system is when it’s working properly? We do not need all this toxic vaccine garbage. It is much better to work to strengthen our own immune system in order to prevent getting sick.

      You bring up evolution. Here’s an evolutionary quirk for you to ponder. With all this technological intervention into human evolution, do you think it to be good or bad if we artificially intervene in the collective health of people? Suppose that vaccination works, which is something I would not concede but for the sake of argument say it does. Do you think it will be beneficial for humanity collectively if we intervene in the natural course of human evolution by artificially giving the weak the protection of the strong? Have you given it thought what would happen to the vitality of the human collective if we would see survival of the strongest AND the, chemically enhanced, weakest?

      Do you think that this fashionable addiction to invasive and artificial health intervening technology is worth the risks? Do you think humanity is really spiritually mature enough to intervene in its course of evolution and to play God?

      Do you really think that the first and foremost priority of Big Pharma rather than making profit is to aid in the protection of humanity? Do you think that Big Pharma wants to see us all running around in good health and never in need of medical care, or are you perhaps open to the possibility that they much rather have you sick and keep on buying their medications?

      I think we need to grow up spiritually before we can even begin to think about playing God.

  11. Hi Phil,

    Yep- I too wonder is it a good thing for us to interfere with Evolution or, to rephrase it, is Evolution taking us along for a ride and we stupidly think we are in charge of our own destiny? In 1918 we had about 1.5 billion peopla and average life expectancy was low, maybe 50. Now, “something” has happened and our population growth is huge – 6 billion people soon to be 9 billion. Is there an upper limit to our population size before we start affecting the planet. In my country, Ireland, it rained all last week and major parts of our country were flooded and major parts of our farming lands. How long would our food supply last if this type of freak weather were to spread reducing our ability to grow crops worldwide ? I think we are already seeing the signs of our tinkering with evolution and nature.

    But did you ever think of why people are said to be living longer or have an increased life expectancy compared to our grandfathers generation who were slim, ate healthy fresh food and got lots of exercise in- all the stuff we don’t do and no longer are? Its simply because less children die at birth or in childhood, mainly because of vaccination.

    Say we looked at 10 people in a fictitious family (grandparents, parents,kids and kids grown to adulthood) in 1900 and the ages they died at: 90, 85, 79, 0,1,2,0,3,75,76. Average age of death is 41 even though half the people are well over 70 because most of the kids died in childbirth or of some simple illness like measles.

    Now lets say we have a family of ten in the year 2000 complete with Burgers, french fries, takeaways etc. They die as follows: 79,76,82,83,55,44,19,10,75,81. Their average age of death (or life expectancy) is 60 years of age and yet among the individuals they didn’t really live longer, just managed not to die in vast numbers at birth or in childhood. We haven’t really extended death so much as stopped kids and babies dying of now preventable illnesses- that’s what vaccines do- they stop kids (mainly ) dying in childhood. I know the figures are bull that I made up and my “family” is hardly likely but this is just a quick attempt to get my point across about the power of vaccines and medicine. Take the developing world- there are plenty of old men and women living to great ages but their life expectancy is low because most of their kids die off.

    Now to your point about “weakness” and weakening our stock by letting the weak live. In the 1920s there were an estimated 1 million children dying of measles worldwide each year. Firstly, does anyone need to die of measles to strenghten our stock ? You could argue that nowadays we’d have great hospital care to help children survive measles and more than likely this is what does happen in unvaccinated kids who do get very sick . But during the decade of the 1920s this figure for measles deaths dropped dramatically. This is years before a vaccine was found. Why ? They think it relates to the fashionable idea ( with no scientific basis) adopted by parents of giving kids Cod Liver Oil daily- for some nutritional reason it appears to have provided better bolstering of kids immunity. By your arguement they were wrong to do this.

    One of the questions you are not asking is why are our governments so intent on forcing people to vaccinate and vaccinate especially for these pandemics ? The answer could be, as you say, because big Pharma tells them what to do which I think is probably true ( Along with the banks and big companies in general who dictate to our politicians what to do). I do agree these people run our countries by and large and not our politicians. But, I will give you the real reason why these vaccines are now being practically forced on people- our healthcare systems cannot cope with too much serious illness !! Its a fact.

    A few weeks ago in my country Ireland we had 10 people seriously ill in intensive care beds with swine flu. We have a population of around 4 million and about 100 intensive care beds in our collection of hospitals.That meant we had 10 % of our intensive care reserve gone already.I know of one man who was 1 and a half months in intensive care. Now imagine if everyone refused the vaccine and say, 60 more people got so ill with swine flu they needed intensive care- we’d have 40 beds left only. That means if you were in a serious car accident, or your father needed his aortic aneursym repaired, or your son got meningitis there would be serious doubt as to weather they’d get the care they need if they needed ICU simply because everyone refused the vaccine that would have prevented the swine flu , maybe influenced by your posts. What you say has consequences and people are naturally suspictious of new ideas. Are you sure you’ve thought it true. Do the figures for your country or city- count the number of intensive care beds and then say to yourself- if even half of these were occupied by people with swineflu what would be my chances of surviving serious routine surgery be without an ICU bed available ? You’re not tinking of that

    I’m not sure I’d qualify as big pharma. I’m an unemployed pharmacist alright but I’m mainly out of work caring for an invalided parent ( Meaning I had to give up work). I admire the fact you atleast listened to me and didn’t simply block my post. I have no illusions about big Pharma though- for example, a local division of a pharma company called a press conference over the summer announcing a huge donation of HIV meds to Africa. The next week they privately cancelled this donation due to the economic downturn- in otherwords it was a publicity stunt. I would hold the view that there are people in the world with treatable illnesses like asthma, living short lives because these companies need to keep up their prices artificially. For example- the Philipines. They are close to japan and have a high incidence of asthma. Big Pharma has no interest in selling inhalers there because they are afraid Japanese companies will source the cheaper product in the Philipines and thus they’ll lose the lucrative Japanese high price market for asthma- how is this modern medicine helping man ?????????? What gives them the right

    But I do think you’re wrong to stir up fear about the vaccines for swineflu and, indirectly, all future pandemics. The reason they had to put thiomersal in is simple- they had to maximise production and speed. Its faster to make one vial with 10 doses than 10 single syringes and to allow 10 doses be withdrawn at intervals they needed a microbial preservative to kill off any bacteria that might contaminate the product. This would be serious as you could get a bad live infection directly introduced into your system. Thiomersal is the gold standard because they basically used it for years until the 1980s when the switch to unit / single dose products was instigated. The seasonal flu vaccine is generally a single dose product because we really only need to give it to old people, far less than the entire world population which needs to be vaccinated now.

    One final thought- evolution and the “fittest”. In my country most of the 14 people who died have cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease of our people.The basic disease involves a faulty sodium ion pump in lots of cells of the body, people with CF have no sodium pumps while carriers of the gene have a reduced number but are otherwise healthy.It is thought the reason we have so much CF here is that we suffered from epidemics of thyphoid regularly in our past. The salmonella bacteria release a toxin in our guts and activate our sodium pumps to lose ions and water as diarrhoe. You eventually die of dehydration. It is believed, in that past environment of thyphoid epidemics, those who carried the CF gene survived better than those who were normal because they didn’t have as many sodium pumps releasing ions and water- they were the fittest then but now they are the weakest as we now have proper clean water supplies and thyphoid is gone. So, you should have a think about what constitutes the “fittest”. Some of the people you think have poor genetics may one day have some mutation that makes their descendants survive when yours die out!

  16. It is a good thing that there are no H1N1 outbreaks these days. It created a lot of scare back then. ‘
