(NaturalHealth365) At no other time in history have so many vaccines been required within the United States vaccination schedule. According to statistics at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 10 million vaccines – many of which contain aluminum (a known neurotoxin) – are given to infants every year. But, there are many underreported statistics that are quite disturbing.
For example, the National Vaccine Information Center reports that nearly $3.6 billion has been awarded to children and parents for vaccine injuries to date – making it clear that adverse effects are a reality. In light of these facts, it has never been more important to examine the safety and effectiveness of vaccines in order to make an informed decision about your health.
Discover the suppressed truth about vaccine safety on the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman and noted vaccine safety activist Barbara Loe Fisher – as we uncover the shocking truths about our current vaccination schedule. Knowing that there are hundreds of new vaccines under development (right now), it has never been more important to get the whole story. Don’t miss this important show.
Aluminum used as an adjuvant in vaccines can have dire physical and psychological consequences
Simply put: aluminum – which is routinely added to vaccines in order to ‘stimulate’ the body’s immune response to the antigen – is a neurotoxin. There is no good reason to ever have any amount of this destructive substance in the body. And, we currently put this chemical element in vaccines for hepatitis A and B, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis), and HPV (Gardasil) – among others.
According to a study published in Current Medical Chemistry, children up to 6 months of age receive 14.7 to 49 times more aluminum from vaccines than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration safety limits allow.
While mainstream medicine continues to insist aluminum in vaccines is “safe,” independent scientific research is telling a very different tale.
Experts say that aluminum adjuvants can travel from the injection site to the brain, where they enter neurons and glial cells. This gives them the potential to induce serious immunological disorders, including problems with autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications. Chronic immune activation in the brain is a major cause of brain dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
One study, in the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics, noted that aluminum is now being implicated as interfering with cellular and metabolic processes in the nervous system. In addition, aluminum interferes with the body’s ability to excrete toxins such as mercury – while impairing the synthesis of glutathione, a major antioxidant and detoxifier. Most people are seriously misinformed about the dangers – which is why I think the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour is so important for all of us.
Know the health risks BEFORE you vaccinate
Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of NVIC, notes that “vaccination is a medical intervention performed on a healthy person that has the inherent ability to result in the injury or death of that healthy person.”
Before deciding whether or not to vaccinate your child, Fisher maintains it is essential to know the risks of the disease and vaccine, your child’s current health status, and whether your child has any history of adverse reactions, allergies, immune system reactions or neurological problems.
Fisher advises keeping a written record of exactly which vaccines your child received, including the manufacturer’s name and vaccine lot number.
And, any vaccine reaction symptoms should be reported to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Possible symptoms include pronounced swelling, redness, hardness or heat at the site of the injection; rashes or hives; shock; collapse; extreme sleepiness; weakness; paralysis; loss of eye contact; social withdrawal; head banging or repetitive movements such as flapping or rocking; and high fever.
All serious, dramatic changes in physical, mental or emotional behavior should be written down and described in detail, Fisher notes. Bottom line: we all need the facts to make an informed decision about our health.

This week’s guest: Barbara Loe Fisher, one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on vaccine safety
Discover the truth about vaccines safety and effectiveness – Sun. Sept. 3
Barbara Loe Fisher, advocate, consumer representative and author, is a respected leader of a national grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in public health policies. The co-author of the book “DPT: A Shot in the Dark” and author of “The Consumer’s Guide to Childhood Vaccines,” and “Vaccines, Autism and Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic,” Fisher is a video commentator for the NVIC Newsletter.
In addition, she has worked with Congress to include vaccine safety provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and has led demonstrations at both the CDC and the White House. She has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time and Newsweek, and has the distinction of debating more doctors on the subject of vaccination than any other American. Her interest in vaccine safety reform dates back to 1980, when her oldest son suffered a convulsion, collapse and brain inflammation within hours of his fourth DPT shot and was left with multiple learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder.
