Several months ago I went to my doctor to get blood work done. I never go to the doctor (excluding my yearly paps, gotta keep up with those!). I didn’t have anything wrong with me, I was just curious about my blood work. I wanted to know my levels of everything. So when I finally got to my appointment, I was disappointed to have the good ol’ doc tell me that I should have gotten the blood work done prior to the appointment, and that I should have fasted 12 hours prior to getting my blood drawn.

I had been emailing her about what I wanted tested, about how I had no immediate health concerns but just wanted to see where I was in the scheme of things. Not once had she told me I needed to get the blood work done prior to the appointment or that I needed to fast. My appointment was getting off on the wrong foot. Maybe I should have known this was normal protocol, but like I said, I never go to the doctor, and I didn’t have health insurance for a long time.

The point of this is that she ended our appointment by telling me I was not up to date on my vaccines, and that I should get vaccinated right then and there. I can’t remember all of them, but she was really pressing the tetanus vaccine. I politely declined all vaccines without providing explanation, until she asked me why I wouldn’t want it, in a tone that begged the question, “Are you effing kidding me?”

I told her I was not comfortable injecting mercury and formaldehyde into my blood. She told me I am exposed to more mercury when I eat tuna (which isn’t true, but that’s for another post), and that she was unaware that it had formaldehyde. I left the appointment with a bad taste in my mouth, and thought to myself that the doc should really read up on formaldehyde in vaccines, that shit is carcinogenic (aka causes cancer)!

Turns out, not only does it indeed contain formaldehyde, it also contains polysorbate 80, aluminum and a trace amount of thimerosol (mercury). Babies are frequently given the DTaP vaccine, diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis. So while my doctor wanted me to be injected with all of this and I refused, tiny little babies with undeveloped immune systems are regularly being injected with all of this, and only from this one vaccine!

Babies today receive more vaccines than ever. Not only is this unnecessary, it’s unsafe! In a study published in Epidemiology, they found that 30% of children that received the tetanus vaccine had asmtha or other allergies by age 10, while unvaccinated children had none. This vaccine has also been linked to neurological disorders, suppressed immune system, arthritis, even paralysis.

Autism and Vaccines

I’m sure many of you have at least heard of the link between autism and vaccines. The occurrence of autism is raising at an alarming rate. In 1950, it was roughly 1 in 10,000 and in 2010 it was 110 in 10,000 (some studies report even higher numbers). While I do not believe vaccinations are the only cause of autism, I do firmly believe they contribute.

The first cases of autism were diagnosed in the 1930s, and so was the DTP vaccine. Autism cases soared again with the introduction of the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella, and also the name of a band from my neck of the woods, DC!). But we all know that correlation does not equal causation, so let’s explore further.

In the 80s, babies received, on average, 100 mcg of mercury from vaccines. In the early 90s this increased to 237 mcg, and in the late 90s babies were subject to 275 mcg of mercury. According to Dr. Boyd Haley, a mercury toxicity expert, applying thimerosal to a living tissue will kill the cells. Here is a video conducted by the University of Calgary about how mercury causes brain neuron degeneration.

Here is a video of how a local woman (age 26, not a baby) suffered severe neurological damage after receiving a routine flu shot.

One of the most convincing studies I’ve come across was conducted at the University of Pittsburgh. Laura Hewittson and a team at UPitt administered an age, size and chronologically appropriate vaccination schedule from the 90s to monkeys. These monkeys developed autism symptoms, while their unvaccinated counterparts developed no such symptoms.

What about unvaccinated kiddos? A 2005 study conducted by United Press International studied an Amish community that did not vaccinate their young. Statistically, there should have been 130 cases of autism. There were none.

“I have seen a steady accumulation of evidence that MMR is causing brain damage in some children. The refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history.” – Dr. Peter Fletcher, former medical assessor to the Committee on Safety of Medicines

Remember, there are generally no mandatory vaccinations for children to enter school. Additionally, each state has legal exemptions, including religious and philosophical. Again, I do not support the idea that vaccines are the sole cause of autism. I do not think most people who are against vaccines support this idea. After reading Gut and Psychology Syndrome by neurosurgeon Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, I believe it’s due a myriad of reasons. Poor diet pre-conception, during pregnancy and post birth. Toxic overload in the child. Lack of beneficial gut flora in the intestinal tract. Lack of proper nutrients in the diet. Compromised immune system. All of these contribute to autism. Some children are autistic, some are not, and this depends on a varying set of factors.

Even if a person does support vaccines and considers me nuts for not doing so, let’s be a little objective and just look at common ingredients in majority of vaccines:

  • Formaldehyde – a known carcinogen.

“Several NCI surveys of professionals who are potentially exposed to formaldehyde in their work, such as anatomists and embalmers, have suggested that these individuals are at an increased risk of leukemia and brain cancer compared with the general population.”

  • Polysorbate 80 – also linked to cancer and even infertility. Read more here.
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) – MSG is an excitotoxin that damages the brain and liver. It also also used as a popular food additive. MSG causes neurodegenerative, brain, and endocrine disorders.
  • Aluminum – from the mouth of government itself (I actually used to work with OSHA, not for though!),

” Inhalation or intratracheal injection of aluminum dust caused infections in the respiratory system of the rats and rabbits exposed [NLM 1992]. Interstitial fibrosis with hyalinosis, emphysema, and hemorrhage were noted and reportedly led to the development of bullous emphysema, bronchopneumonia, and hemorrhagic pneumonia”


“There is some evidence that Alzheimer’s disease may be linked to aluminum content in the body.”

  3. I have 4 kids. My oldest 2 were vaccinated until the age of two. Then I stared to notice issues with them, and heard criticism of vaccines. Then I became pregnant. My husband and I researched and prayed, and felt we should not vaccinate our third, or our 4th children. The difference of the struggles in our 2 vaccinated children and our 2 unvaccinated children has been immense. My oldest 2 were sick all the time in the beginning of their lives, my youngest were barely ever sick. My oldest two have speech delays and issues, my youngest 2 have none. One vaccinated child has very bad coordination, he can’t do jumping jacks, pushes up, situps, learning to write was torture for him, and still can be. My unvaccinated children have no coordination issues, I was amazed how quickly the efficiently they learned to use utensils and write. My other vaccinated child has a very hard time coping with transitions, or being told no for very small things, things that never phase my unvaccinated children. Everyday I watch differences in 2 vaccinated children and 2 unvaccainted children and I wish I would have educated myself before allowing my oldest kids to be poisoned. They are all 4 sweet, and kind hearted, and a blessing. But my oldest 2 have struggles my youngest have never dealt with. The only difference in their lives were vaccinations.

      Hi Josh,

      Did you actually read the article I wrote, or any of the studies I actually linked to?

      Because the discredited study you’re referring to is not something I even used in my research. Therefore I’m not really sure why you’re commenting with a link to it.

      Regarding the other article you’re linking to, there is literally no way they know if the outbreak is in an unvaccinated or vaccinated population. That information was NEVER taken into account, so how can these people hold the unvaccinated population at fault for the rise if they don’t even know if the outbreak is occurring in an unvaccinated population? I also suggest you refer to a study I actually did link to, here it is: It illistrates just how ineffective vaccines are.

    • Most likely the increase in the diseases are due to the vaccinations; directly by infecting people and indirectly by weakening their immune systems.

  4. Formaldehyde is naturally occurring; it’s in pears for god’s sake . More scaremongering nonsense.

    If you don’t know the difference between your ethyls and methyls, you shouldn’t be writing about this.
    And with and chemical (oooooooh that scary word, ‘chemical’), the amount absolutely matters. A glass of wine is good for you; drink a ton of it and you’ll die.

    The autism-vaccine link is utter bullshit. It’s been debunked over and over. This is probably the worst article I’ve read on this site, and that’s saying something.

      Arsenic is naturally occurring as well, does that mean it’s safe to inject into the bloodstream of children? That is one of the most inane arguments I’ve ever heard. There is literally no logic. Additionally, do you think the formaldehyde in vaccines is derived from pears? I mean really, come on.

      I’m well aware of the difference between methylmercury and ethylmercury and how they react in the body, though you clearly aren’t.

      “Brain concentrations of total mercury were approximately 3–4 times lower in the thimerosal group than in the methylmercury group, and total mercury cleared more rapidly in the thimerosal group (with a half-life of 24.2 days versus 59.5 days). However, the proportion of inorganic mercury in the brain was much higher in the thimerosal group (21–86% of total mercury) compared to the methylmercury group (6–10%). Brain concentrations of inorganic mercury were approximately twice as high in the thimerosal group compared to the methylmercury group. Inorganic mercury remains in the brain much longer than organic mercury, with an estimated half-life of more than a year. It’s not currently known whether inorganic mercury presents any risk to the developing brain.

      Given these findings, the researchers caution that risk assessments for thimerosal based on studies using blood mercury measurements may not be valid, depending on the design of the study. Further, the observed differences in distribution and breakdown of mercury compounds between exposed groups indicate that methylmercury is not a suitable model for thimerosal toxicity.

      The researchers emphasize, however, that the risks associated with low-level exposures to inorganic mercury in the developing brain are unknown, and they describe other research linking persistent inorganic mercury exposure with increased activation of microglia in the brain, an effect recently reported in children with autism.”

      • Oxygen is good for you too. Inject it and your dead.

        CO2 is an essential life giving gas. Too much and you suffocate.

        Calcium is necessary for health. Too much and your heart contracts and stays that way.

        Most of what is in vaccinations has no business being in the blood or tissues of the body.

        All vaccines are dangerous and damaging to varying degrees. No disease has been stopped via vaccinations; usually the infection rates of the disease they allege to prevent, go up.

  5. Animals are also being harmed with this junk science snake oil. People have reported that their animals have had secures and have died on the way home or shortly thereafter. The vets do the same as the doctors and say there is no connection.
