Break it Down


The Ingredients

Time To Do The Research!
There’s some basic information that every parent should know about the safety of vaccines. The facts provided below will hopefully help to jumpstart your journey into dissecting the myths surrounding vaccine culture. So, take a deep breath and let’s dive in! First, you need to know what vaccines are made out of.

Below is the ingredient and excipient list from the FDA. Read it. Read it all.

Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary

Excipients Included In U.S. Vaccines, by Vaccine

In addition to weakened or killed antigens (viruses or bacteria), vaccines contain very small amounts of other ingredients-excipients or media. Some excipients are added to a vaccine for a specific purpose.

These include: Preservatives, to prevent contamination. For example, thimerosal. Adjuvants, to help stimulate a stronger immune response. For example, aluminum salts. Stabilizers, to keep the vaccine potent during transportation and storage. For example, sugars or gelatin. Others are residual trace amounts of materials that were used during the manufacturing process and removed.

These can include: Cell culture materials, used to grow the vaccine antigens. For example, egg protein, various culture media. Inactivating ingredients, used to kill viruses or inactivate toxins. For example, formaldehyde. Antibiotics, used to prevent contamination by bacteria. For example, neomycin.

The following table lists substances, other than active ingredients (i.e., antigens), shown in the manufacturers’ package insert (PI) as being contained in the final formulation of each vaccine.

Note: Substances used in the manufacture of a vaccine but not listed as contained in the final product (e.g., culture media) can be found in each PI, but are not shown on this table. Each PI, which can be found on the FDA’s website (see below) contains a description of that vaccine’s manufacturing process, including the amount and purpose of each substance. In most PIs, this information is found in Section 11: “Description.” All information was extracted from manufacturers’ package inserts. If in doubt about whether a PI has been updated since this table was prepared, check the FDA’s website at:

Let’s take a closer look at some of the ingredients.

Fetal Cell Lines

Anytime you see MRC-5 or WI-38, know that those are aborted fetal cell lines used to grow the viruses in vaccines.

If you are pro-life, you should have a really big problem with this information.

If you are pro-choice, you should still have a really big problem with this and here’s why:

There have never been any long-term safety studies on injecting foreign human DNA!

However, according to the study below, human DNA cell fragments, like the ones found in vaccines, are able to actually attach to their host, mutating their genetic material.

Formaldehyde is used to kill the virus or inactivate the bacteria in vaccines. In 2011, the U.S. National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as “known to be a human carcinogen.” (1) This means that formaldehyde is cancer-causing.

Animal Products

Newsflash: Vaccines aren’t vegan. They actually couldn’t be more un-vegan if they tried. With monkey kidney cells, calf bovine serum, egg protein, casein, chick embryo cell cultures, and the list continues, animal products abound in our vaccines.

Vegan or not, this information should still be cause for alarm. Mostly because once again, there have never been any long-term safety studies on injecting animal DNA into our bodies.

 Heavy Metals

Thimerosal (which is a fancy word for mercury) and aluminum are both found in vaccines. Whilst mercury was removed from most immunizations in 2001 as a precautionary measure, it still remains in the multi-dose vial flu shots, potentially exposing children to this heavy metal annually.


Aluminum is the other heavy metal found in vaccines. It is a common adjuvant, used to stimulate a more powerful/prolonged immune system response. It is also highly neurotoxic.

>>> Professor Chris Exley has spent his entire life studying aluminum and its effect on humans and the environment. Please watch this clip of him breaking down the dangers of this metal. <<<

Additionally, there have been countless peer-reviewed studies demonstrating, not only the neurotoxicity of aluminum but also linking this heavy metal to numerous chronic health issues. Below is a small sampling:

The 80’s

Next, we need to examine how the pediatric vaccine schedule has changed over time. In the 1980’s, the schedule consisted of about 24 doses of vaccines. Now there are 72-74 doses depending on what brands are being used. The number of doses has almost TRIPLED.

Were people walking around dropping dead

from “vaccine-preventable” disease in the 1980’s?


 No, They Were NOT!

Then what was the catalyst for the explosion in the pediatric schedule?


 The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).


This act signed into law on November 14th, 1986 stripped the pharmaceutical companies from any and all liability pertaining to pediatric vaccine injury. Parents can no longer sue the vaccine manufacturers directly should their child suffer an adverse reaction to a vaccine.


Why did this happen?


In the early 1980’s, vaccine manufacturers were paying out so much money in litigation for vaccine injury that they threatened to stop making vaccines altogether. This freaked out our government and the 1986 Act was born.


Initially, the NCVIA seemed like a good thing as it also set up the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) as well as the special claims court that deals with vaccine injury cases. The NCVIA also helped establish the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System or VAERS which is our national vaccine injury database. So, a lot of good came from this act as well.


However, by giving the pharmaceutical companies legal immunity and leaving them without any incentive to ensure product safety, the vaccine schedule exploded.


To date, the VICP has paid out almost $4 billion to victims of vaccine injury, even though 2 out of every 3 claims for compensation are denied. (3)


But vaccine injury is only “1 in a million,” right?


We always hear the phrase that vaccine injury is rare. This is not true. Vaccine injury isn’t rare, only rarely reported. The report listed below was funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and orchestrated by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.



Less than 1%…

If 99% of injuries are never recorded,

how will we ever know the true scope of vaccine injury?

Now we need to talk about vaccine safety.


The slogan, “vaccines are safe and effective” has been permanently etched into our societal consciousness.

We are told that the only way to stay safe and healthy is by getting as many vaccines as possible. We are told that without vaccines, we would all die. We are told to ignore our gut instinct and are encouraged to “listen to the doctors” because vaccines save lives.


Sometimes in life, we are given wrong information.


  1. Vaccines have numerous potential side effects known as adverse reactions. The VAERS database houses these reports (even though less than 1% are reported) and I encourage every new parent to scour this database in order to understand the true potential outcomes of vaccination.


The best way to access the VAERS information is through This is the search engine designed by the National Vaccine Information Center which is another amazing source of information.



  1. There has never been a single, cumulative safety study for all 72 recommended doses.


Read that again. There is no study that looks at the potential effects of the CDC’s recommended schedule despite all of the available information they have through the Vaccine Safety Datalink. This would not be a hard process. The CDC could simply “run some numbers” with all of the data from the VSD but they refuse to do so. 


  1. This one is really important!


There has never been a “vaccinated vs. unvaccinated” study that looks at the health outcomes of both populations. The CDC refuses to do this extremely important data-gathering because they deem the act of withholding vaccines from children to be unethical.


*Insert eye roll*


There was a small study done that looked at the health outcomes of unvaccinated vs vaccinated homeschooled children across 4 different states. The outcome was exactly what we would expect.


The vaccinated children had less acute illness but more chronic illness, including allergies, ear infections and neurodevelopment disorders (NDD). This study was retracted from the original publishing journal but the data can still be found here.


    The findings should make everyone pause. We clearly need a large-scale study of the health outcomes in “vaccinated vs. unvaccinated” children and we needed it yesterday.


    1. The next thing you should know about vaccine safety is that there are no true, inert placebos used during clinical trials.




    The gold-standard for safety testing is performing a double-blind, placebo-controlled study where one group receives the vaccine, with the control group receiving a saline injection. That way, the safety of the vaccine could be accurately assessed. We learn about this kind of testing in middle school. Vaccine manufacturers don’t seem to know about this method, however because it never happens.


    Vaccines are tested for safety against other vaccines, (usually NUMEROUS other vaccines) or an adjuvant such as the neurotoxin, aluminum. You can fact-check this by going through every vaccine insert where they list the placebos used during clinical trials.


    Interesting. So there has never been any gold standard safety testing, yet the CDC, FDA and our local pediatricians all continue to tell us that they are extremely safe.



    1. Section 13.1 in every vaccine insert needs to be read by new parents. You can find all of the available inserts online HERE


    This section states something along the lines of “[This vaccine] has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or impairment of fertility.”


    Simply put, this statement means that vaccines COULD cause cancer, they COULD mutate your genetic information and they COULD impair your ability to have a child, but the vaccine manufacturers don’t know because the appropriate tests have never been run.


    This was shocking to me.



    How can all of our regulatory agencies continue to belabor the idea that vaccines are safe when they haven’t even been tested for carcinogenesis, the ability to cause cancer? Interestingly enough, the average age a child in the United States is diagnosed with cancer is age 6. The bulk of our 72 vaccine doses are administered before the child is 5 years old, but I digress.  


    1. There was an amazing whitepaper put out by the nonprofit ICAN, which details everything I just laid out and much, much more. Please read it. It is one of the most important documents regarding vaccine safety of our time. 


    Additionally, the website is another great resource that explores the lack of vaccine safety and the industry corruption.

    I leave you with this one piece of advice. Buy and read these 4 books. They will allow you to make an informed decision about vaccination for your child by giving you the necessary science-driven tools.


    1. Dissolving Illusions by Suzanne Humphries M.D. and Roman Bystrianyk
    2. Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies by Neil Z. Miller
    3. Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness by Thomas Cowan M.D.
    4. How to End the Autism Epidemic by J.B. Handley


    I don’t envy you if you are just beginning your journey. It’s a tough road to navigate. You are left to scrutinize science, misinformation, societal pressure and emotional content all whilst dealing with the modern-day juggling act of parenthood.


    It’s a hard road but one that is worth the struggle. When you reach the end and are able to make an educated decision, my hope is that you will help enlighten other parents seeking out vaccine information as well.


    Remember, delaying vaccination until you are 100% confident in your decision is always the best route to take. You can choose to vaccinate at a later time but can never truly “unvaccinate” your child.
