- The CDC states that aluminum in vaccines as gels or salts are added as adjuvants to help the vaccine stimulate a better immune response, in order to be more effective. Without this ingredient, more doses of a vaccine might be required to provide adequate protection, according to the AAP.
- Aluminum is a toxic metal and one to which we are already routinely exposed through food, air, and water, given its natural occurrence in the earth’s crust.
- It poisonous to the nervous system. High levels of this metal are associated with insomnia or sleep difficulties, nervousness, emotional instability, memory loss, headaches and impaired intellect.
- It can stop the body’s ability to digest and make use of calcium, phosphorus and fluoride which then prevents bone growth and reduces bone density.
- It can also cause conditions which actually force calcium out of the bones, such as in fibromyalgia.
- It also brings on weakness and deformation in the bone structure with crippling effects.
- Toxicity can also result in aching muscles, speech problems, anemia, digestive problems, lowered liver function, colic and impaired kidney function.
- Its neurotoxicity is increased by intake of other metallic ions such as arsenic, cadmium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury or other toxic metals.
- A low intake of zinc and magnesium contributes to retention of many heavy metals as well as a higher sensitivity to their effects.
- While most in mainstream medicine insist it poses no problems, many independent researchers are suspicious of aluminum’s supposed safety.
- The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a nonprofit founded in 1982 to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education, highlights on its website the shocking lack of scientific evidence that injected aluminum is safe.
- Parents need to be aware that the amount of this ingredient that babies and young children are exposed to via vaccines has risen substantially in recent years.
Scientific Papers About Aluminum In Vaccines
- According to medical research journalist Neil Z. Miller, “Vaccines containing aluminum were added to the childhood immunization schedule when some vaccines containing mercury were removed. Prior to the mercury phase-out (pre-2000), babies received 3,925 mcg of aluminum by 18 months of age. After pneumococcal and hepatitis A vaccines were added to the schedule, babies began receiving 4,925 mcg of aluminum during the same age period—a 25% increase.”

- “Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants: Are They Safe?” Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw state:
“Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. There is also a concerning scarcity of data on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of these compounds. In spite of this, the notion that aluminum in vaccines is safe appears to be widely accepted. Experimental research, however, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In particular, aluminum in adjuvant form carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications and may thus have profound and widespread adverse health consequences. In our opinion, the possibility that vaccine benefits may have been overrated and the risk of potential adverse effects underestimated, has not been rigorously evaluated in the medical and scientific community.”
