July 25, Salt Lake City, Deseret News: It's safe to vaccinate kids — studies find autism risks are linked to genetics instead

July 24, 2014, Washington Times: EDITORIAL: More Kennedy snake-oil medicine

July 24, 2014, WFMZ, Allentown, PA: Life Lessons Detecting autism earlier

Salt Lake City, Deseret News:

Hu cited a plethora of studies that have ruled vaccinations do not cause autism, and chastised celebrity parents like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Jenny McCarthy for crusading against vaccination.

There are two fraudulent claims here: There is no link, and autism is genetic.  Good luck with proving either is true.

Washington Times

RFK Jr.'s crusade to ban vaccines...

It's hard to move on after this first outright lie.  No one is reading and reporting on what's IN KENNEDY'S BOOK.  They're just spreading lies about it.  It's unbelievable how scared these people are about the truth getting out.

WFMZ Allentown, PA 

The average age of diagnosis for a child with autism is five-and-a-half. Experts say that's way too late.

VIDEO: "The American Academy of Pediatrics is now recommending that all children be screened for autism TWICE before age two"

MY POSTED COMMENT:
It's hard to understand how this story rates as "news."  SEVEN YEARS AGO, in 2007, the AAP first called for screening children twice for autism by age two.

SEE NBC News story:

The only thing that has changed is that back in 2007, the autism rate was one in every 150 children and today it's one in every 68.  The one thing the AAP has never called for is finding the cause and stopping the epidemic.  In another seven years we can only imagine what the autism rate will be.

Abstract

"Tissue damage caused by six different adjuvants incorporated in a Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae vaccine was compared in swine. The adjuvants compared were four mineral oil compounds, one peanut oil compound and aluminum hydroxide. Inoculations were given in the neck, quadriceps and semitendinosus muscles..."

@Lawrence,

Here's a link you may want to peruse:

http://www.drpalevsky.com/articles_pages/346_Peanut_Oil_in_Vaccines_Since%20the_1960s.asp

SNIP:

"There is adequate scientific evidence that peanut oil has been used in vaccines since the 1960's. If current vaccine package inserts do not contain the specific evidence that peanut oil, or peanut meal, is contained within the final vaccine product, it does not mean that peanut antigen is not in the final vaccine product. Vaccine manufacturers use different growth media on which to manufacture the vaccines. They do not report, and I believe are not required to report, the exact ingredients in all of the growth media. Therefore, we may not know whether peanut antigen is used in the vaccine manufacturing process just by reading through the package inserts. Our lack of knowledge about it does not mean it isn’t knowledge waiting to be discovered. And, it may, or may not, have anything to do with an attempt to purposely hide the information that peanut antigen is present in vaccines.

Nonetheless, I do believe it is a screw-up on the part of the FDA, CDC, and all other agencies in charge of reviewing vaccine constituents prior to licensing, to turn their heads away from the role vaccine food antigens play in contributing to the significant rise in food allergies in the pediatric and adult populations, and thus the rise in chronic disease.

The tetanus portion of any DaPT, tdaP, Dt, Td or Tt vaccine is grown on a Fenton-Latham medium derived from bovine casein, which can still remain as an antigen in the final vaccine product (http://us.gsk.com/products/assets/us_pediarix.pdf). Children receive 6 of these vaccines by the time they are 11 years old, and then as adults once every 10 years. Milk allergies and sensitivities have been exponentially on the rise, and these sensitivities are found to contribute to the inflammatory symptoms found in children and adults with many different chronic illnesses such as chronic otitis media, eczema, asthma, autism, and even bipolar disease and schizophrenia (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21176030, http://www.schres-journal.com/article/S0920-9964(09)00621-5/abstract).

Another source of casein that is potentially injected into the body is from the Menactra vaccine. Casein hydrolysate is used to make the Mueller-Hinton agar, which is the growth medium for the manufacturing of the Menactra vaccine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mueller-Hinton_agar).

The MMR is one of a few vaccines that contains egg protein, (http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/m/mmr_ii/mmr_ii_pi.pdf), and despite a recent study claiming that it is safe to give the MMR to children with egg allergies, children who are allergic or sensitive to eggs still have significant inflammatory reactions after the injection of the MMR. The lack of an anaphylactic response in children who ingest egg protein after they've been sensitized by an injection of egg protein in the MMR, does not mean they lack a reaction to, or lack the development of inflammatory symptoms as a result of the injection and ingestion of egg protein.

The Prevnar vaccine contains soy protein, and we've seen a large rise in allergies and sensitivities to soy protein in the population. (http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM201669.pdf)."

Here's another:

http://vactruth.com/2010/07/15/non-disclosed-hyper-allergenic-vaccine-adjuvant/

SNIP:

..."What peanuts have in common with vaccines is something that very few healthcare consumers and medical doctors may be aware of: Peanut oil is a hidden and non-stated ingredient in the manufacture of children’s vaccines. This was brought to light in a 2010 court case wherein parents were accused of Shaken Baby Syndrome; had their child taken from them and placed in foster care for almost eight months; and Harold E. Buttram, MD, presented corroborating medical information to the court regarding the anaphylactic reaction the six-month old baby boy experienced resulting in tremendous swelling and pressure of the brain..."

SNIP:

..."As part of his researched testimony, Doctor Buttram chronicled the use of peanut oil in vaccines, which proves rather interesting. After penicillin was invented (1945) researchers found that the kidneys excreted it within 3 hours thereby rendering it ineffective. In order to prolong penicillin’s action it was mixed with 4 to 4.8 percent beeswax and peanut oil. As a result, penicillin was slowly released as the body metabolized the oil. To further extend penicillin’s effects, penicillin with aluminum monostearate was added to make a solution suspended in peanut oil that kept blood levels of penicillin up to 24 to 26 hours. In 1964 Merck produced the adjuvant 65-4 that contained up to 65 percent peanut oil plus Arlasel A, aluminum stearate, and other ingredients with 13-fold higher levels of antibodies than previous vaccines. During the 1970s and 1980s peanut oil became a common practice and ingredient in vaccines. Coincidentally, peanut allergies began rising exponentially in children as more vaccines were administered. Heather Fraser in her 2010 book, The History of the Peanut Allergy Epidemic, documents this:..."

So, yes, the use of peanut oil(s) and other oils is a well known documented fact re: the manufacturing process of certain vaccines.

@ jenny .. @ lawrence .. @ barbaraj

@ Jenny

Thanks much for the site listing "oils" as vaccine ingredients. I am not surprised that so many patents listing various "oils" as an ingredient were applied for .. however .. I am surprised that apparently NONE were licensed for vaccines that are used in the USA today.

@ Lawrence

I have responded twice to your question that I CANNOT specify a vaccine that has peanut oil listed as an ingredient. How many times are you going to ask that I name a vaccine that has listed peanut oil as an ingredient?

Jeepers .. I AGREE WITH YOU .. VACCINES DO NOT LIST PEANUT OIL AS AN INGREDIENT.

@ barbaraj

"I don't think they call it peanut oil..I may be wrong, I think it's referred to as..adjuvant 65-4..

From Heather Frazier's book "The History of the Peanut Allergy" .. chapter 5 ..

"In 1964, the NYT announced that pharmaceutical giant Merck had begun to use a new vaccine ingredient that promised to extend immunity against influenza, polio and other illnesses. This new ingredient patented just four days earlier was called Adjuvant 65-4. It contained up to 65% peanut oil as well as Arlacel A, aluminum stearate and other ingredients."

"In 1966, Merck introduced this novel peanut oil additive to the public in a flu vaccine."

Eventually, Adjuvant 65-4 was not licensed for use in the USA .. though Jenny's site clearly indicates many tried to patent similar oil adjuvants.

In all honesty .. whether peanut oil is .. or .. is not listed as an ingredient in vaccines .. does not change the historical .. scientific fact .. the only mechanism implicated in mass allergy .. from serum sickness to penicillin .. is injection. Which would explain why the dramatic increase in peanut allergies corresponded with the swift, identical alterations to the pediatric vaccination schedules in Canada, the UK, the US, Australia and many other western countries that occurred simultaneously between the late 1980s and early 1990s ... while countries that did not follow them .. such as .. China, Japan, India, Siberia and Russia .. had no peanut allergies to speak of.

As Heather states in her book ..

"whether the smoking gun was a cross-reactive HIB protein, peanut oil, adjuvants and toxins within the novel five-vaccine-in-one-shot, it makes little difference. There were so few candidates of functional causation that could touch just children and just in the west that by its very absence from the plethora of research on the peanut allergy, injection was the most obvious suspect. One simply cannot argue with ER records, eyewitness accounts and cohort studies that all pointed to a specific moment around 1990, when peanut and other food allergies to children suddenly escalated"

And so .. it does not matter if peanut oil is listed as an ingredient or not ... the fact remains .. peanut allergies are too closely linked with vaccines for the vaccines to be given the usual free pass .. "correlation does not equal causation"

Again .. Lawrence .. I CANNOT NAME A SINGLE VACCINE THAT LISTS PEANUT OIL AS AN INGREDIENT.

@Lawrence "Patents are taken out to protect intellectual property but in no way waive the requirements that specific ingredients must be included on all labels."

If the patents for vaccine adjuvants and mediums do not require specifics, (oils only apparently require to be defined as being of vegetative or animal origin), then it seems logical to assume the same protocol applies to listed vaccine ingredients. In other words, peanut oil can be listed as vegetable oil in a list of vaccine ingredients.

As for the argument "just because a patent was issued does not mean that any particular process was utilized(either in the past or today)", it would also seem illogical for vaccine manufacturers to apply for a patent if they did not intend to incorporate the product.

The patents I linked to were compiled in 1996 and peanut oil is included in Patent 5569457, described as a method of stimulating antibody formation. Whether or not this process is still used today is irrelevant to your argument. If peanut oil in vaccines caused dangerous allergies in children, then that is a matter for the public interest. If vaccine manufacturers have now discontinued using peanut oil, then that too should be information supplied within the public domain. Why all the secrecy?

Lawrence

@Bob - vaccines are classified as a "biological product"

http://www.fda.gov/regulatoryinformation/guidances/ucm258946.htm

With the specific language included here:

Section 351(i) (as amended by the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009, title VII of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Pub. L. No. 111-148, § 7002 (2010)) provides that:

The term "biological product" means a virus, therapeutic serum, toxin, antitoxin, vaccine, blood, blood component or derivative, allergenic product, protein (except any chemically synthesized polypeptide), or analogous product, or arsphenamine or derivative of arsphenamine (or any other trivalent organic arsenic compound), applicable to the prevention, treatment, or cure of a disease or condition of human beings.

Therefore, there is no reason to include a separate section for the correct labeling of vaccine ingredients (the requirements to list any and all ingredients) since they are already included by the virtue of their classification.

Also, the SNS (Strategic National Stockpile): http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/stockpile/stockpile.htm is an stockpile of treatments, drugs, etc. to be distributed to the public, free of charge, in the event of emergency. Any labeling differentials with the SNS would be for specific lots only and have no effect on labeling for general public use.

And to address the patent issue - just because a patent was issued does not mean that any particular process was utilized(either in the past or today). Patents are taken out to protect intellectual property but in no way waive the requirements that specific ingredients must be included on all labels.

Again, please show where "peanut oil" is used in the manufacturing process by any vaccine today.

Jenny Allan

The following url links to a list of patents for vaccine ingredients such as adjuvants and mediums:-
http://barbfeick.com/vaccinations/allergy/609-adjuvant_patents.htm

Most of the patents for vaccine adjuvants, including Patent EP0315153, A vaccine in the form of an oil-in-water type emulsion, state:-
"The oil may be any vegetable oil, fish oil, animal oil or synthetically prepared oil." This COULD include peanut oil since it is a vegetable derived oil, but not necessarily.

However, the patent for a method of stimulating antibody formation, Patent 5569457, is stated to include some or all of the following:-
"corn oil, cottonseed oil, peanut oil, olive oil, coconut oil, fish liver oils"

@ Lawrence

"@Bob - you (and others) have made the claim that vaccines contain peanut oil....it is up to you to provide the evidence that they in fact do, in the face of all of the evidence that they do not"

First of all .. I want to thank you for the link .. and ..
I agree the claim that vaccines contain peanut oil cannot be verified .. as peanut oil is NOT listed as such on vaccines as far as I can determine.

Having said that .. I am still not sure if your claim .. "Regulations are abundantly clear that all ingredients must be listed".

According to your link .. the following was included:

(6) The statement: "`Rx only'" for prescription biologicals.

Sec. 610.68 Exceptions or alternatives to labeling requirements for biological products held by the Strategic National Stockpile.

(a) The appropriate FDA Center Director may grant an exception or alternative to any provision listed in paragraph (f) of this section and not explicitly required by statute, for specified lots, batches, or other units of a biological product, if the Center Director determines that compliance with such labeling requirement could adversely affect the safety, effectiveness, or availability of such product that is or will be included in the Strategic National Stockpile.

That sounds like "biological products" can get an "exception". Is their a difference between "prescription biologicals" and "vaccines" .. and .. more importantly .. would vaccines qualify for an "exemption" as a "biological product"?

In any event, your link made absolutely no mention of vaccines .. the regulations listed were limited to what they identified as "products". I would have preferred to see a link specifically regulating vaccines .. so .. if you have one .. I would greatly appreciate your forwarding it.



Lawrence

@Bob - you (and others) have made the claim that vaccines contain peanut oil....it is up to you to provide the evidence that they in fact do, in the face of all of the evidence that they do not.

Regulations are abundantly clear that all ingredients must be listed:

Salt Lake City, Deseret News: "It's safe to vaccinate kids — studies find autism risks are linked to genetics instead"

Is that so?? Do they think we all fell off the potato wagon yesterday? the pro vaxxers must be getting desperate, who in their right mind would believe that 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys with autism, a once rare condition that is now skyrocketng, is all genetic. I hope they keep going with this it makes themselves look incredibly foolish.

barbaraj

Jeanette Bishop, Thanks for your suggestions, and you are right, his health is most important. He chose a college nearby hoping that he could avoid the issue by not living on campus.

BoB Moffitt

@ Lawrence

You are correct .. I cannot name a specific vaccine that lists peanut oil as an ingredient .. but .. that really is no fault of my own .. because .. as I understand it .. vaccine manufacturers do not have to disclose all vaccine ingredients to consumers .. do they?

Is that statement true or not?

If so .. can you give me a good reason why parents ought not be allowed to know the ingredients in vaccines recommended and approved by public health officials?

barbaraj

I don't think they call it peanut oil..I may be wrong, I think it's referred to as..adjuvant 65-4..
there was some "recent" history concerning the newer vaccines, such as the dtap and flu vaccines not eliciting an equal response as whole cell vaccines had enjoyed..so they compared adjuvants, an aqueous one, and a peanut oil one..the peanut oil increased the potency of the vaccines...so as I remember..and I'm not betting any bank on this..but they hid under cover of 65-4

Jeannette Bishop

@barbaraj,

I hope your son's personal health choices are respected and supported.

In case this helps, I'm hearing that for many college educations have become over-priced (they have outpaced general inflation by 9 times). My understanding is that with the essentially guaranteed income through grants and student loans, colleges have not had to stay competitive in the quality of education they offer, and many students have graduated without marketable skills, some with the equivalent of a mortgage in debt. There is also an increase in online learning options from what I understand. I'm aware of some who recommend alternative tracks for getting skill training and getting into the workforce quickly.

This is one guy who does:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXpwAOHJsxg

Not saying I recommend your son change plans (I don't have enough experience with this to advise anybody effectively--I'm just trying myself to figure out what options are out there for one of my daughters), but if they put his back against the wall, so to speak, over a vaccination he doesn't think he should get, maybe the above might help him not over-weigh the value of the education he hopes to get against the value of the health he will certainly need to thrive.

Lawrence

@Bob - care to provide the actual information that "peanut oil" has been, was ever, or is currently being used in vaccines?

barbaraj

I've done just fine with religious exemption in my state. I can't tell the truth, the truth is that five of my kids have been harmed by vaccine. For this reason I have prayed to protect them and God has clearly availed to me the right to exclude them from further harm. Now ..my eighteen year old son is to go into his college "health office" next week to "apply" for this religious exemption. Everything is in place, stellar AP scores, scholarships, grants, but this one confrontation may take it all away. Maybe we are among the genetically unfit for vaccination group, if there is such a thing, yet that doesn't matter, it doesn't matter that he has tachycardia since vaccine, arthritis since vaccine, and that he has had more vaccines because of the schedule than his older sibs,it doesn't matter that he has wild high titers to measles, because he has no titers to mumps they want to jab him again. It doesn't matter that he was bent over in gastro pain or that he couldn't walk right after his mmr for four months. None of his true physical side effects count in this crazy vaccine war. He is afraid, and so am I. If they "win" he could very well wind up disabled .

BoB Moffitt

From Salt Lake City news .. the following quote:

"Today’s fad is to blame pesticides, and tomorrow’s could be to blame peanut butter in plastic jars. With each claim will come unwarranted hysterical reactions that are not based on solid scientific findings, but instead by a public hungry for conclusive answers where none yet exist, and a media more than happy to stoke speculation," Dan Arel wrote at Salon."

Ah yes .. another odd epidemic .. peanut allergies .. in today's generation that were all but non-existent in all previous .. less vaccinated .. generations. It must be "genetics" .. no?

Not to worry .. Mr. Arel is on the case .. calmly assuring his readers that any speculation the peanut allergy epidemic is caused by "plastic jars" is not based on "science".

Perhaps Mr. Arel can take a moment or two and inform his readers if the possibility of injecting vaccines containing "peanut oil" as an adjuvant is also not based on "science"?

Twyla

I'm wondering whether their strategy is backfiring - bringing more attention to RFK's book, which maybe a lot of people wouldn't even have noticed.
