Babies that follow the recommended immunization schedule receive nearly
5000mcg (5mg!) of aluminum by 18 months of age. (Since some shot dates are
variable, babies may receive up to 1,4 75mcg of aluminum at their 12-month
or 15-month checkups!) Source: Product inserts and the CDC' s immunization
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World
Health Organization (WHO) are aware that aluminum is dangerous. For example,
in June 2000, Dr. Tom Verstraeten, CDC epidemiologist, made the following
comment to a group of concerned scientists: "The results [for aluminum] were
almost identical to ethylmercury because the amount of aluminum [in
vaccines] goes along almost exactly with the mercury." He was referring to a
landmark study that found "statistically significant relationships" between
both aluminum and mercury in vaccines and neuro-developmental delays. Dr.
John Clements, WHO vaccine advisor, provided another telling statement:
"Aluminum is not perceived, I believe, by the public as a dangerous metal.
Therefore, we are in a much more comfortable wicket in terms of defending
its presence in vaccines. " p. 206
The FDA is also aware that aluminum is dangerous. In a critical document on
drug evaluation, the following statement is made:
"Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function,
including premature neonates, who receive [injections] of aluminum at
greater than 4 to 5mcg per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate
aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity.
Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates. " -FDA document
This means that for a 6 pound baby, 1 l-14mcg would be toxic. The
hepatitis B vaccine given at birth contains 250mcg of aluminum-20 times
higher than safety levels! Babies weigh about 12 pounds (5.5kg) at two
months of age when they receive l,225mcg of aluminum from their vaccines-50
times higher than safety levels!
Of course, healthy babies without impaired kidney function may be able
to handle more aluminum. However, no one knows how much more because such
studies were never conducted. In addition, babies are not screened for
kidney strength prior to vaccination. Therefore, it's impossible to know
ahead of time which babies will succumb to aluminum poisoning. Instead,
parents are expected to play Russian Roulette with their children (see
table). Aluminum-free vaccines are a safer alternative. p207
