Learning to read the ingredient lists on processed foods can leave us shaking our heads in confusion because of the number of chemical sounding terms. In our classes we focus on synthetic and inorganic elements added to our food which make it sound nutritious. Even more disturbing is the ingredient list on the box of vaccinations. These ingredients are injected into our children’s bodies. A lack of scientific literacy combined with a lack of full disclosure from the medical profession may be at the root of the problem.

Because cells from aborted fetuses are labeled “diploid cells” in the ingredients lists of vaccines that contain them, the reality of their origin can become obscured by technical language. Diploid simply means a cell that contains a nucleus with two complete sets of chromosomes, one contributed by each parent. If the more common term “aborted fetus cells” was used and if medical professionals considered it their ethical responsibility to inform patients that they might be unknowingly violating their own religious principles, injecting vaccines into our children and ourselves would likely be much harder to promote.

If vegans are upset when they unknowingly eat food containing animal protein, would folks with strong abortion concerns have moral angst when they discovered the vaccines they were injecting pass through aborted fetal tissue? At the least, everyone should agree that people have a right to know what ingredients are being injected into their bodies.

Aborted fetal tissue turns out to be just the tip of the iceberg. In addition, material from animal cells (monkey kidney cells, Cocker Spaniel kidney cells, etc.)  is extracted for things like oral vaccines such as polio. Unfortunately, as in the case of oral polio, latent monkey viruses were also passed on to humans as part of the vaccine. For example, the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) in the polio vaccine is now suspected in more than half of the 55,000 cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma according to the British medical journal, Lancet. The virus in the monkey was not active, but somehow became turned on when injected into humans and was the cause of this cancer.

It’s important that parents do their due diligence by reading the ingredient lists on vaccines in the same way they are now reading food labels. The problem with vaccine ingredients, of course, is not just one of morality, but toxicology. The fact that aluminum, mercury or formaldehyde, are still being used in them should be reason alone to question their safety. It isn’t a question of being pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine. It is a question of safety. Vaccines are not tested like other drugs. They are considered biologics and are “immune” from any significant animal or human testing.

For more information on issues every parent should have access to, see the last chapter in my book, There’s An Elephant in the Room–Exposing Hidden Truths in the Science of Health. It pays to make an informed decision–the health of our children depends upon it.
