Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines
A 2004 article published by the FDA states:
Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function including premature neonates who receive aluminum at greater rates than 4-5 mcg per kilogram of body weight per day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity.
1 Kilogram = ~2.2 Pounds
Aluminum content per vaccine:
Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – 225 mcg per shot
Hepatitis B – 250 mcg
DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, 170 to 625 mcg
Pneumococcus – 125 mcg
Hepatitis A – 250 mcg
HPV – 225 mcg
Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – 330 mcg
Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – 850 mcg
So doing some math — the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA:
8 pound baby: 18 mcg of aluminum
15 pound baby: 34 mcg of aluminum
30 pound toddler: 68 mcg of aluminum
50 pound child: 114 mcg of aluminum
150 pound adult: 341 mcg of aluminum
350 pound adult: 795 mcg of aluminum
Average babies weighing around 12 pounds at their 2 month check up receive 1,225 mcg of aluminum via vaccines.
Keep in mind that according to the CDC, INGESTED aluminum only ABSORBS at a rate of 0.01-5%. Since vaccines bypass the digestive system entirely, they are not filtered out like they would be through digestion and thus absorb at 100%.http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxguides/toxguide-22.pdf
And why do aluminum levels matter? Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic to the body and its organs. Aluminum “can” cause neurological harm. Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidney’s or kidney disorders or in premature babies.
