Have Vaccines been tested for safety?

Have Vaccines been tested for safety?
1 out of 35 vaccine ingredients has been tested. Only 2 of 36 shots have been studied for Autism. The 48 shot vaccine schedule has never been studied.
Pertussis-  According the research of the last 50 years, the vaccine is safe.  But what test showed it was safe?
It's called the Mouse Weight Gain Test.  "Researchers" would vaccinate mice at their stomachs.  If the mice continue to gain weight and don't die right away, it's considered safe. I wish I could make this stuff up.

And if you haven't heard, adults should get the shot because it will protect the young.  In 2012, Australia stopped this adult vaccine program all together because there was no proof that it was protecting the young.

Whether vaccines can, and do, cause severe, irreparable damage is not up for debate. The U.S. government’s table of recognized vaccine injuries includes anaphylaxis, a severe, whole-body reaction to vaccine ingredients; encephalopathy, brain damage; brachial neuritis, a degree of loss of sensation to the shoulders, arms, hands, and chest, which can be accompanied by chronic pain, lasting years; chronic arthritis; Thrombocytopenic purpura, a loss of blood platelets resulting in “increased tendency to bleed”, an autoimmune disorder caused by the production of antibodies against platelet antigens - See more at: http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2014/11/18/the-greater-harm-by-shawn-siegel/#sthash.T19VYWED.dpuf

Bad CDC testing-
-the main studies quoted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) used to disprove the connection between vaccines and autism is the Danish study showing an increase in autism rates after thimerosol was removed from vaccines. However what was NOT reported in the study was that at the same time as the mercury was removed for vaccines, the Danish government mandated reporting of autism and offered free clinics and increased services for those with autism. And, suspiciously, the lead author on that study who has worked closely with the CDC recently absconded with $2 million in research grants. The Danish police are searching for him.
-Conflicts of interest are the norm in the vaccine industry. Members and Chairs of the FDA and CDC vaccine advisory committees own stock in drug companies that make vaccines; individuals on both advisory committees own patents for vaccines under consideration or affected by the decisions these committees make. The CDC grants conflict-of-interest waivers to every member of their advisory committee a year at a time, allowing full participation in the discussions leading up to a vote by every member whether or not they have a financial stake in the decision

Are vaccines safe?
-It has been found that the maximum exposure from these vaccines in the first six months of life is 187.5 micrograms of mercury -- far exceeding limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to the EPA, the "safe" daily level of mercury exposure for a five kilogram, two-month-old infant is 0.5 micrograms or 0.1 micrograms per kg. But these limits are set for methyl mercury primarily from fish, not for ethyl mercury from vaccines. The typical two-month vaccination schedule for a baby includes DTP, Hib, and HepB. Combined, these vaccines contain 62.5 micrograms of mercury.
-The only time the data was analyzed correctly looking at completely vaccinated cohort of children getting vaccines containing thimerosal versus children who had received vaccines without thimerosal was by the CDC’s Thomas Verstraten in 1999, which found associations between exposure to vaccines and a host of adverse neurological disorders including ADD/ADHD, speech and language delays, neurodevelopmental delays in general and autism. http://www.safeminds.org/research/library/GenerationZeroPowerPoint.pdf
-U.S. military personnel may be even worse off: “…four letters from the FDA/Public Health Service…clearly reveal that the anthrax vaccine was approved for marketing without the manufacturer performing a single controlled clinical trial.” Clinical trials are, of course, absolutely critical to determining the safety and effectiveness of any pharmaceutical product. Military personnel have been, and continue to be, unwitting subjects in unethical experiments.
-After critically analyzing literally ten’s of thousands of pages of the vaccine medical literature, Dr. Viera Scheibner concluded that “there is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects.”76 Dr. Classen has stated, “My data proves that the studies used to support immunization are so flawed that it is impossible to say if immunization provides a net benefit to anyone or to society in general. This question can only be determined by proper studies that have never been performed. The flaw of previous studies is that there was no long-term follow up and chronic toxicity was not looked at. The American Society of Microbiology has promoted my research...
-According to Dr. P M Bhargava, the BCG vaccine for tuberculosis has been extensively tested in India as long back as 1961 and found to be totally ineffective (in fact tuberculosis in the vaccinated group was found to be more than in the control group!). The OPV is causing polio in tens of thousands of Indian children. The Hep-B vaccine introduced into the UPI recently is not meant for children at all, it is a vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease that should be targeted only at promiscuous adults. The tetanus vaccine contains both aluminum and mercury besides the tetanus toxoid. The doctors themselves avoid giving the DPT to their children and relatives as per a survey amongst US health care professionals.
-Doctor Ajay Gambhir, a very senior member of the IAP, too supports extensive screening of children before administering any vaccine. According to him children suffering from any illness, with any family history of autoimmune illnesses, any past reactions from vaccines, should not be administered vaccines. According to him the parents of children need to be told that they have the choice not to vaccinate.

Mercury Poisoning symptoms?
-Recent peer-reviewed scientific/medical studies by Nataf et al. (2006) and by Geier and Geier (2006) leave little doubt that many autistic children are indeed mercury poisoned. These studies utilized urinary porphyrin profile analysis (UPPA) to assess the body-burden and magnitude of physiological effects of mercury in children.
-Mercury poisoning and autism have nearly identical symptoms, and a single day’s vaccination regimen may inject 41 times the level of mercury known to cause harm. California’s autism rate has mushroomed 1000% over the past 20 years, with dramatic increases following the introduction of the MMR vaccine in the early 1980’s. England had dramatic autism increases beginning in the 1990’s, following the introduction of the MMR vaccine there. Some infants receive 100 times the EPA’s maximum allowable amount of mercury through vaccines.
-In January, 2000, the Journal of Adverse Drug Reactions reported that the MMR vaccine was not adequately tested and should not have been licensed. Further reinforcing the suspected vaccine-autism connection is the fact that many physicians using a systematic mercury-detoxification regimen with autistic patients have seen dramatic improvements in the health and behavior of their patients.
-Los Angeles Times, Merck & Co., the makers of several vaccines, knew in 1991 that the cumulative amount of mercury in vaccines given to infants by six months of age was about 87 times the level then thought to be safe
-"However, in 2001, the vaccine was found to cause a serious, frequently fatal, multisystemic illness, called yellow fever vaccine–associated viscerotropic disease (YEL-AVD), which resembles the illness it was designed to prevent."

Mercury in the body
- study of children with developmental delay found that 75 of 91 patients with autism and inflamed bowels had live measles virus detected in samples of their intestinal tissues. Only 7 of the 70 normal patients (or controls) were found to have the measles virus in their gut. Vaccine measles strains have been isolated from the spinal fluid of autistic children. http://www.jpands.org/vol9no2/bradstreet.pdf
-A case control study of 221 children with autism and 18 controls found that after a DMSA challenge test, vaccinated autistic children had THREE times the level of mercury in their urine compared to controls
Biopsy samples found 22,000 times the level of mercury in people with heart failure from unknown causes compared to controls whose heart failure was caused by virus, heart attacks, or high blood pressure
-Research proves that even very low levels of exposure have adverse effects on language, attention, and memory, making children less able to think and learn. When you read this list of symptoms, it is easy for even the layperson to correlate that this environmental toxin has caused havoc with our children’s development starting in the late 80’s when the numbers of vaccines containing thimerosal and the epidemic of developmental disorders began to increase
-Monkey studies have shown that the mercury in thimerosal does indeed cross the blood brain barrier and results in significant deposition of inorganic mercury in the brain. Research has documented that inorganic mercury becomes trapped in the brain (the estimated half-life is over 700 days).
-A review by Dr. Paul G. King has proven otherwise, showing that ethylmercury is first metabolized by the body into toxic methylmercury, which is then metabolized into inorganic mercury.
The abstract from that study states the following:
"In the rat study, which Dr. King cites, the lab rats were raised for the purpose of this study and had no reported mercury levels in their blood before the experiment.
There were three groups in the study:
1. A test group of Thimerosal-(ethylymercury)-treated rats;
2. A test group of methylmercury-chloride-treated rats; and
3. A control group of rats treated with a 'water' placebo.
At the end of the experiment, as expected, the water-treated control group had no reported levels of mercury in their blood or organs.
The group treated with methylmercury chloride (which vaccine purveyors routinely "sound bite" as the harmful organic mercury as compared to the "safe" Thimerosal, ethylmercury), as expected, had both methylmercury and inorganic mercury in their blood and organs."

And goes on to conclude:
"In layman's terms, these studies, as brought to light by Dr. King, establish that ethylmercury (Thimerosal), a "supposedly harmless" compound of mercury according to the vaccine establishment, is converted in the rat and apparently in the human infant into "methylmercury" which, the establishment admits is a harmful form of mercury. It is then further reduced to the long-term most harmful, "inorganic mercury" that bioaccumulates in the tissues and organs.
Based on these findings, we can conclude that injecting the Thimerosal (ethylmercury), found in flu shots, into pregnant women (exposing the in utero fetus to mercury [see Table I on page 15 of Dr. King's posting

5) "There is no mercury in vaccines. It has all been phased out."

Oh, but it hasn't! In fact, it's still regularly added to the influenza vaccine, and is active in other vaccines, hidden under other titles.
The FDA themselves have gone on to say the following:

"While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines," right on its "Thimerosal in Vaccines" page which can be found here:
6) "The mercury is vaccines is good for you, since it produces an immune response."
There are absolutely no studies that show that mercury, a toxic substance, is good for you. In fact, just the opposite is true. The study cited in the post above goes on to say:

"The antibacterial activity of thimerosal (sodium ethyl mercury thiosalicylate) is attributed to the ethyl mercury cation that dissociates from the thimerosal molecule. By 1999, expanding recommendations for infant vaccination meant that US children who received a complete series of vaccines that contained thimerosal potentially received up to 187.5 μg of ethyl mercury during the first 6 months of life.1-3 This cumulative exposure could exceed the US Environmental Protection Agency's recommended safe intake level, estimated in 1997 to be no more than 0.1 μg of mercury per kg of body weight per day.4 This observation led to a recommendation by the American Academy of Pediatrics that thimerosal be removed from all vaccines that are administered to infants in the United States."

Yet, it has not been removed. The EPA themselves acknowledge the toxic effects of mercury:


-When, at two months, a baby gets its first big round of shots, the total dose of aluminum could vary from 295 mcg (if a non-aluminum HIB and the lowest-aluminum brand of DTaP are used) we know a healthy baby could handle, a 12-pound, two-month-old baby could safely receive at least 30 mcg of aluminum per day. A 22-pound one-year-old could receive at least 50 mcg safely.  FDA requires, that all injectable solutions be limited to 25 mcg; The baby gets 295 mcg but can only handle 30 mcg safely per day.  So what happen when the baby receives 265mcg more than what is safe? No one has measured the levels of aluminum absorption by the bloodstream when it is injected into the skin and muscle of infants, or the levels of excretion from the body via urination. All of the FDA and AAP documents that I've read state that aluminum might be a problem, but that they haven't studied it yet, so we should limit the amount of aluminum included in injectable solutions. But, again, no one is talking about the levels of aluminum in vaccines.

 -Several years ago, some suspected cases of aluminum toxicity resulted in various neurologic and degenerative problems. The Cochrane Collaboration, a group that studies health-care issues around the world, wanted to look at a very large study group to see if there was a real correlation between neurologic problems and the aluminum in vaccines. They investigated all the reported side effects of one aluminum-containing vaccine, DTP (no longer used), and looked for any evidence that such vaccines caused more side effects than non-aluminum vaccines.
-They looked at the effects of only one standard aluminum-containing vaccine, rather than the effects of all four being administered at once. They didn't study aluminum metabolism itself. They didn't test aluminum levels in children after vaccination, nor did they explore whether or not the amount of aluminum in vaccines builds up in the brain or bone tissues. They looked only for evidence of external symptoms of aluminum toxicity, not internal effects. Nor did they do their own research; instead, they reviewed all available studies conducted by other investigators. Despite all this, the Cochrane Collaboration study essentially closed the book on investigating aluminum toxicity from vaccines, without really having opened it in the first place.
-several animal studies involving aluminum and/or aluminum-containing vaccines that did show neurologic harm. Not only did aluminum build up in the brain and cause damage, but some of the damage looked similar to what is seen in the brains of Alzheimer's patients.
