Food Ingredients in Vaccines – Hidden Proprietary Information

“Another Nasty Side Effect from Vaccinations: A Lifetime Fear of Dying from Eating.” By Barbara F. Gregory, September 24, 2009. (original source of this article: here)

Unless you have children in school, you might be unaware of the epidemic of severe and fatal food allergies. Imagine having a child in a town where fishing is a passion and your child has a fatal fish allergy. Just smelling fish cooking is enough to send this child to the emergency room. An epipen isn’t enough. I nearly cried as a friend told me about her fear for her child. Every time the telephone rings her first thought is: “Is my child all right?”

Here are the food allergy statistics from FAAN:

Food allergy is a growing health concern in the U.S.

More than 12 million Americans suffer from food allergy. [3.9%]

About 3.1 million children in the U.S. have food allergies.

One out of every 25 Americans has a food allergy.

One in every 17 children under the age of 3 has a food allergy.

Eight foods account for 90 percent of all reactions in the United States: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, etc.), wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.

Severe reactions result in more than 50,000 emergency room visits each year.

Food allergy is the leading cause of anaphylaxis outside of the hospital setting in the U.S.

It’s estimated that 150 people die each year from severe food allergy reactions.

Most individuals who have had a reaction ate a food they thought was safe.

A government study has shown that food allergy rates in children increased 18 percent from 1997 to 2007.

Scientists don’t know why the incidence of food allergy is increasing.

Even trace amounts of a food allergen can cause a reaction.

There is no cure for food allergy. (1)

It seems that food allergies are becoming so common that they are just accepted as a part of modern life. But food allergies are a recent phenomenon. The first case of food allergy (milk) was published in 1901.(2) First case of nut allergy -1920.(3) Sesame allergy 1950. (4) First case of Brazil nut anaphylaxis in the UK – 1983. (5) First known case of lupin allergy” 1994 (6)

Our allergy would have us believe that food allergies are a side effect of being too clean. (7) This so-called “Hygiene theory” has been printed so many times now it isn’t even questioned in medical circles. And our medical community has no idea why our “clean” bodies suddenly start reacting to foods. According to the The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Food Allergies: the IgE antibodies that cause food allergies can just happen to be appear out of the ether:

“A baby can be born allergic, or a heretofore unafflicted adult can develop an allergy out of the blue.“(8)

Food Allergies for Dummies disagrees:

“A virgin immune system has no reason to launch an all-out attack on a harmless food. It has to be properly sensitized to the food first (through an initial exposure).”(9)

So what is going on with our scientific research and food allergies? How come we can have all that fancy medical equipment and so many people have studied allergies and nobody has a clue where these food allergies are coming from? Why do they have sesame allergies in Israel but no peanut allergies? They eat peanuts. They’re clean, too. Why does the Hispanic population of the United States have a lower incidence of food allergies? They’re living in the same “overly clean” country as the rest of us. Why have food allergies increased substantially in the last 6-7 years? Did we suddenly get “cleaner”?

My only claim to having any kind of learned abilities compared to these highly trained physicians and scientists who have studied food allergies is I can read and write, add and subtract, and I actually looked at the ample data available. It doesn’t take a medical degree to see the connection between vaccines and food allergies.

I read the package inserts for vaccines. The first vaccine given to children, Hepatitis B(10), contains casein. It is often given before the baby leaves the hospital.(11) Casein allergy usually appears in children in the first few months of life. (12) The same company that manufactures the Hepatitis B vaccine (13) also sells baby formula.(14) Gee, what a coincidence!

One of the next vaccines given to children at two months of age is the Pneumococcal conjugate (PCV7) (15). The package insert states “Each serotype is grown in soy peptone broth. Soy?  Soy allergy is most common in infants and is usually noticed by 3 months of age. (16) Does the same manufacturer of this vaccine also make infant formula? Yep. (17) (18)

Highly refined food oils are a trade secret ingredient in vaccines. They can be mixed together. Patents for vaccine adjuvants list the oils used. (19)

8. The pharmaceutical emulsion of claim 1, wherein the oil phase further comprises almond oil; babassu oil; borage oil; black currant seed oil; canola oil; castor oil; coconut oil; corn oil; cottonseed oil; emu oil; evening primrose oil; flax seed oil; grapeseed oil; groundnut oil; mustard seed oil; olive oil; palm oil; palm kernel oil; peanut oil; rapeseed oil; safflower oil; sesame oil; shark liver oil; soybean oil; sunflower oil; hydrogenated castor oil; hydrogenated coconut oil; hydrogenated palm oil; hydrogenated soybean oil; hydrogenated vegetable oil; a mixture of hydrogenated cottonseed oil and hydrogenated castor oil; partially hydrogenated soybean oil; a mixture of partially hydrogenated soybean oil and partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil; glyceryl trioleate; glyceryl trilinoleate; glyceryl trilinolenate; a polyunsaturated fatty acid triglyceride containing oil; or a mixture thereof. (20) (patent source here)

Foods are also used in the culture medium.

In contrast, complex media will use extracts of a variety of things, including left-over animal parts (cow brains and hearts), yeast (from brewing) or digests of plants or animal slurries (peptones are one example of this category). The exact composition of these extracts is often unknown. The sources of these extracts often take advantage of waste products from other industries to save money…. (21)

“Vegetables preferably used are of leaf and root types e.g. various cabbages, beets, rutabaga, carrot, pumpkin, spinach, beet, watermelon, melon, peanut, artichoke, eggplant, pepper sweet, asparagus, and tomato. Fruits to be preferably used are apples, pears, kiwi, plums, citrus, apricots, grapes/raisins, mango, guava, bananas, biwa, cornel, fig, cherry plum, quince, peach, pomegranate, avocado, pineapple, date, papaya. Berries preferably include raspberry, bilberry, guelder rose, dog rose, ash berry (red and black), currant (red, black, and white), sea-buckthorn berries, gooseberry, schizandra, blackberry, cowberry, bird cherry, cranberry, sweet cherry, cherry, and strawberry. Preferred herbs and their roots are ginseng, celery, parsley, dill, dandelion, nettle, ginseng, and spinach. Preferred high protein products are offals including spleen, kidney, heart, liver, brains, maw, and stomach as well as mushrooms, sea products (fish, mussel, plankton for example), eggs or nuts. Preferred products of beekeeping are propolis, honey, royal jelly, and pollen of flower. (22)

“An adjuvant is a vaccine component that boosts the immune response to the vaccine. The adjuvant effects of aluminum were discovered in 1926. Aluminum adjuvants are used in vaccines such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-containing vaccines, Haemophilus influenzae type b, and pneumococcal vaccines, but they are not used in the live, viral vaccines, such as measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, or rotavirus. (23)

There is plenty of evidence that injections cause allergies. (24) (25) (26) (27) Injections have been used to create allergies in test animals. Any food protein remaining in the vaccine from the culture medium or diluent oils when injected along with an adjuvant can cause a food allergy.(28)

So my question to you is: If the medicine in our country is so highly advanced and there is plenty of evidence connecting vaccines to food allergies, why are we being told that

“Scientists don’t know why the incidence of food allergy is increasing.” (1)

The evidence is elementary…. but since the “Dummies” book and the “Idiots” books don’t know what causes food allergies… maybe I should write a new book… The Incomplete Food Allergy Book for Really Really Stupid People because we are really, really stupid if we continue to listen to the medical lies being fed to us daily about vaccine safety.
