New DVD shines light on toxic aluminium adjuvants

Injecting Aluminium  a new documentary by French journalist Marie-Ange Poyet, investigates the history of aluminum in vaccines and its potentially devastating effects on the human body.

SYNOPSIS: In the early 90s, a mysterious muscular disease with symptoms that included severe muscle and joint pain began to surface among multiple patients in France. A team of doctors in Paris discovered that these patients had developed a new disease called Macrophagic Myofascitis, or MMF, which occurs when the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant from a vaccine remains embedded in the muscle  tissue.

It is great to see such important documentaries being made and distributed. My interest in injectable aluminium began when I started to research the story of cervical cancer and the development of the HPV vaccines. This HPV vaccination program has never been shown to prevent a single case of cervical cancer yet it continues to be rolled out to teenagers all over the world and is associated with thousands of adverse events and hundreds of deaths. The full extent of the current damage is not known as few adverse effects are reported.  There are 225 mcgs of Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate per shot of Gardasil with the recommendation being 3 doses. Both Gardasil and Cervarix use the newer aluminium adjuvants which cause a stronger immune response than other such adjuvants. It is important to have an understanding of how aluminium affects the human body in order to understand the considerable health carnage that follows the administration of HPV vaccines.

This film explains the true horror of what is happening to our young people in this crazy, dangerous age of vaccines. It begins with the story of a sufferer of Macrophagic Myofasciitis MMF, a muscle disease first identified in 1993. It’s a rare muscle disease characterized by microscopic lesions found in muscle tissue. The disease is highly associated with Aluminium Hydroxide found in many vaccines including Gardasil and the Hepatitis B shot.

We’re introduced to a young woman who describes her debilitating symptoms: extreme tiredness, pains in her legs, chronic sciatica, pain in her lumbar region at times so bad she can’t stand to be touched. Her muscles, she described as feeling ‘like they had been torn’. From her shoulders the extreme discomfort spreads all the way down to her fingers. As I listened to her story I had no problem relating it to those of the girls whose experiences are recorded in my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed .

Jasmine recalls her ordeal after her Gardasil vaccination:

 Following my first injection I experienced almost immediate ‘crawling’ sensations on my legs, which at the time, I figured was just a lack of magnesium. It wasn’t too bad, and the discomfort mostly went away; however, after the second injection it came back — tenfold. As a result, I had three years of chronic muscular/nerve pain that impacted everything from my relationship (due to the depression and insomnia that I developed) to my ability to study and enjoy life. I also became addicted to taking Panadol and Nurofen every single night for those following years, as it was the only thing that helped.

The stories in Injectable Aluminium are unfortunately so familiar. Young people forced to give up their careers, leave study, change life plans and all united by one factor. Like the featured young woman they had been vaccinated and despite consulting with numerous GP’s, neurologists, osteopaths and undergoing MRI’s, CT’s and blood work there was little help and no clear diagnosis. In this case the woman was advised to seek help at Henri Mondor Hospital in Créteil, France. Once there, she had a biopsy of her deltoid muscle revealing she had MMF. She also found out that her vaccinations with hepatitis B, diptheria, tetanus and polio had allegedly triggered her pathology.

Her case was identical to another patient, a nurse who had also complained of extreme body pain and had an unusual lesion filled with macrophages – cells of the immune system that engulf and digest foreign substances. The tissues of this muscle fragment were found to contain aluminium. In animal studies it has been found that some of these macrophages containing aluminium are being found in brain tissue and in the lymphatic system. On examining their many patients’ histories the researchers at the Henri Mondor Hospital were unable to find a history of recent aluminium exposure but what they did discover was that 100% of their patients with MMF had been vaccinated in the recent months or years. It was not known how long this post vaccination granuloma condition would last. 

At the time of these interviews there were 335 patients being treated at the hospital with the total number of their patients being 600. The doctor interviewed estimated that there may be around 10,000 cases of MMF in France. There is no register for recording how many people suffer this disease. MMF is not recognised in France and therefore there is no income support and no compensation. Neither is there any sign of funding becoming available for more research into the debilitating condition. Not that this is surprising in light of the profit motive inherent in the vaccine industry.

Professor Chris Exley is interviewed on all things aluminium. Exley has been researching the subject for 30 years and says that he is not ‘anti aluminium’ but that it has never been demonstrated to be safe. Exley speaks about the history of the metal and explains that although it is abundant in the earth’s crust we have only been using it for 130 years. It was called ‘the metal of the future’ and formed the basis of much of our cookware in the 20th century. In relation to aluminium in vaccines, Exley asks: ‘How many experts did they consult before using the adjuvant?’ How would they know it was safe. He wonders how they could know the answer to this when he as an expert doesn’t even know.

This is very serious for according to the World Health organisation the vaccine industry will be worth 100 billion dollars per year by 2025. Aluminum adjuvants are used in many vaccines: HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-containing vaccines, Haemophilus influenzae type b, and pneumococcal vaccines.

More important facts were gleaned from this expose called Injecting Aluminium.

The aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. It is the vaccine itself that is subject to an approval process. In the US, infants receive 16 shots containing aluminium by 18 months of age. And yet we haven’t done safety tests on these adjuvants.

Aluminium causes the body to turn against itself. This is what we are seeing in many of the girls who have had their lives severely affected after their Gardasil shots. One of the severe adverse events is premature ovarian failure in young teenage girls. POF occurs due to the destruction by aluminium of the maturation process of the eggs in the ovaries. Shockingly this condition is underreported at the present time because many girls are on the contraceptive pill but once they stop the damage will be obvious. This is very serious, more infertility and loads of heartache to follow.

In the words of Dr. Christopher Exley, PHd in Ecotoxicology of Aluminum, University of Stirling : This film brings the human experience of a severely debilitating disease caused by aluminum adjuvants to life and, of equal importance, to the notice of the general public. Watch and understand one of the significant downsides of living in the aluminum age.

Easy to learn breathing technique: A life saver

It was encouraging to read Heart’s Gas Boost  by Lucie van den Berg in the Herald Sun October 16, 2017. Survivors of cardiac arrest are to take part in a ‘world -first’ trial where they will have their blood levels of carbon dioxide increased in an attempt to lessen damage to the brain.  The increased levels of the gas achieved by the use of a ventilator will result in greater perfusion of the brain minimising the risk of  neurological damage after the cardiac event. This occurs because a higher level of CO2 contributes to a greater unloading of oxygen in the form of oxyhaemoglobin to the tissues. This mode of action is known as the Bohr effect referring to the observation that increases in the carbon dioxide partial pressure of blood or decreases in blood pH result in a lower affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen. Thus more oxygen is made available to body organs and tissues, in this instance, the brain.

An understanding of this process forms the very basis of the Buteyko Breathing Method developed by Professor Konstantin Buteyko in Russia back in 1952. In his chapter on Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko, in everything you need to know to take control of your asthma: asthma-free naturally author Patrick McKeown describes the doctor as a ‘simple yet extraordinary man (who) devoted his life to studying the human organism and made one of the most profound discoveries in the history of medicine.’ Buteyko was suffering from hypertension and wondered if his habit of over breathing might be the cause of his intractable condition. He began experimenting on himself, reducing his inhalations and found that his headaches and the pain in his kidney ceased. A research of the available studies at the time confirmed his discovery that deep breathing and the exhalation of too much carbon dioxide decreased the amount of oxygen going to vital organs.

The Buteyko Institute Method is scientifically based on the standard medical principles of respiration, the normalisation of breathing, and the Bohr Effect. The Buteyko exercises train people to breathe through their noses, reduce their breathing to normal levels, keep their mouths closed and thus retain a higher proportion of the CO2 produced by the body. This results in immediate improvement in asthma, sleep apnoea, snoring, emphysema, COAD, COPD, sinusitis, hay fever, rhinitis, blocked nose, allergies, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, panic and anxiety conditions, and many other respiratory problems.

The news of this world-first trial to reduce brain damage after cardiac arrest is heartening. It can also be seen as an endorsement of the Buteyko method of breathing and its ability to improve the health of sufferers of many common conditions.

I have been learning the Buteyko method of breathing for the last three months and would attest to its value in increasing my quality of life. After five years of insomnia and plenty of money spent on the latest sleep cure including around $2000 for a mandibular splint I finally sleep through the night. A sleep study had revealed that I had sleep apnoea, only mild, but my lived experience was awful all the same. Each night as bedtime neared I would switch off the wi-fi, turn off the TV, read a book and later dim the lights hoping that such sleep hygiene measures would result in the release of melatonin and ensure a good night’s rest. To no avail, I could not stop the cycle of poor sleep accompanied by frequent, sudden snorting and the sleep anxiety and daily tiredness that followed.

Neither my  GP nor my sleep physician suggested that I try a natural therapy called Buteyko. In my desperate research to help my condition I came across the Buteyko breathing method which claimed to be the answer to sleep apnoea, snoring, asthma, nasal problems and anxiety.  After reading many articles and books on the method I tried to teach myself but had little success. That was until I enrolled in a course run by Paul O’Connell, Breathing Course Conductor & Practitioner Trainer. The Buteyko Institute Method is taught by practitioners registered with the Buteyko Institute of Breathing & Health (BIBH). The course consists of 5 sessions of 90 minutes duration run over consecutive days. The lectures are accompanied by breathing reconditioning where the emphasis to breathe only through the nose is stressed along with the importance of a reduction in the minute volume of air inhaled thus increasing the level of CO2 in the lungs thereby improving the oxygen uptake in the cells and tissues of the body.
Buteyko has been taught in Australia for over 20 years where it was first used successfully for asthma but is now also being taught for relief of sleep apnoea. Results of a 2012 survey of Buteyko Institute Practitioners suggests that this method of breathing retraining might prove to be an alternative method of treating sleep apnoea to the CPAP machine and that further studies are needed. The survey  found that:

Over 95% of clients with sleep apnoea had improved sleep and approximately 8o% of clients had been able to cease use of their CPAP machine or oral appliances. 

This in encouraging as is the use of this method for retraining the breathing of asthmatics. The results of the first clinical trial in Australia held in Brisbane into the effects of the Buteyko Method of Breathing for  asthmatics showed that those taking part were able to reduce their bronchodilator medication by 96%, their steroid medication by 49%, and their asthma symptoms by 71%.

As with any new skill, breathing retraining requires practice and an overall vigilance of how you are breathing throughout the day. If done properly this reduced breathing will also be how you breathe when  asleep. This was exciting news to me. How I longed for sleep as I remembered it before it was disturbed by who knows, but probably a very disturbing life event.

Paul O’Connell, Director of Buteyko Health & Breathing explained that the course involved learning to reduce our intake of air and that we only need about 4-5 litres of air a minute but a lot of us are inclined to be far more greedy and inhale a hearty 14 litres. Surprisingly snoring is thought to be the body’s mechanism to have us slow our breathing and retain some valuable carbon dioxide. The physiology is really interesting and if this fairly simple adjustment to one’s life can restore health, well that is fantastic news.

Our breathing practice consisted of inhaling through our nose and holding our breath until we felt the first signs of being uncomfortable – of air hunger. I remember my first attempt at this and my result was a very poor 23 seconds. This measurement is called the Control Pause and represents the level of CO2 in the lungs. Over the 5 day course this improved to where I could hold my breath reasonably comfortably for 46 seconds and am pleased to say that I have continued my practice and my controls have improved to over 100 seconds and up to 2 minutes along with improvements in my sleep and general feeling of wellbeing.

There are many  benefits to our health from experiencing higher levels of CO2. As you learn to breathe smaller volumes of air that result in higher level of carbon dioxide there is an increase in body temperature and in saliva levels. Both are signs that the circulation is improving along with a boost to the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a feeling of calmness and well being.

In his book Breathless Sleep…no more, former sleep apnoea sufferer Paul Rodriguez discusses the importance of awareness in our ability to breathe well:

Awareness, or mindfulness, of our breathing is essential. Recognising how every day emotional and stressful states affect the volume and rate of breathing is essential to achieving a state of relaxation.

Other important principles of the Buteyko Institute Method may involve changes to diet and being aware that eating too much causes us to deepen our breathing. The best way to encourage healing is to avoid processed foods and concentrate on fresh fruit, vegetables and nuts if possible. Other lifestyles changes include sleeping on your left side if you can and always with your mouth closed which can be facilitated by lightly taping your mouth. And of course the importance of exercise and how this helps build up our levels of carbon dioxide contributing to the feeling of contentment.

I look forward to going to bed now confident that my sleep will not be punctuated by frequents awakenings and adrenaline surges. Apart from wanting a good night’s sleep, sleep apnoea is associated with hypertension, vascular and cardiovascular disease so it is best to find a cure and a natural one at that.

It is such a simple way to treat sleep apnoea but one largely ignored by medical practitioners. This is despite some very positive media stories such as the 2005 A Current Affair which aired a story concerning the case studies of sleep apnoea sufferers being taught by Paul O’Connell in Melbourne who were successfully able to give up their CPAP machines after retraining their breathing using the Buteyko Method. But it is no surprise that medical research remains fixated on high-tech solutions  – there is much money to be made by selling mandibular splints and CPAP machines. Maybe Buteyko owes its neglect to its simplicity for it is hard to believe at first that this method will work. We are so accustomed to the  technological quick fixes.

No this is not a treatment your average general practitioner or sleep physician is likely to recommend and especially now that the Australian government is scrapping rebates for natural therapies. Therapies which include the Alexander technique, aromatherapy, Bowen therapy, Buteyko, Feldenkrais, herbalism, homoeopathy, iridology, kinesiology, naturopathy, pilates, reflexology, Rolfing, shiatsu, tai chi, and yoga will no longer attract a rebate which although small was a sign that the community was recognising the health benefits of alternative therapies.

On October 13 the Australian Government announced its reforms to the private health insurance system which included dropping the rebates for various natural modalities.  These non medical treatments are  popular with around 14 million Australians using complementary therapies with private health insurance covering an average rebate of $30 per session.  The scrapping of the rebates followed the review of the Australian Government Rebate on Natural Therapies for Private Health Insurance. The purpose of the Review was to make sure that the therapies were ‘underpinned by a credible evidence base that demonstrates their clinical efficacy, cost-effectiveness and safety and quality.’

The 2015 review found that for Alexander technique, Buteyko, massage therapy, tai chi, and yoga there was evidence, which was graded as low to moderate quality, that these natural therapies may improve certain health outcomes for a limited number of clinical conditions. However, in most cases the quality of the overall body of evidence was not sufficient to enable definite conclusions to be drawn about the clinical effectiveness of the therapies.

But all is not lost. There are financial reasons for the Austin hospital trial into the effects of increasing the CO2 levels of cardiac arrest patients. It costs $120,000 to care for a patient who is admitted to intensive care post cardiac arrest. So the hope is that the trial will result in a better outcome for the patient and the health budget. Would it be too much to ask that similar sensible rearrangements might be made to other conditions that cost the public purse far too much, such as subsidised medications for asthma?

But I live in a dream world. It must be the effects of higher levels of CO2.

ABC’s Media Watch bullies Northern Rivers newspaper into changing its headline

 

The Northern Star has been in the business of bringing news to the people of the Northern Rivers since 1876. It’s about us  page informs that it focuses strongly on readers, with stories told through the eyes, ears and mouths of local people. And that’s what it did when it ran ‘Teen left in wheelchair after Gardasil HPV vaccine ‘reaction’. However the story about teenager Olivia Odey now has a new headline ‘Teen’s nightmare battle with mystery illness’.

Some Background:

Olivia Odey became ill three years ago complaining of joint pain, along with tingling and numbness. She also suffered light sensitivity and heart palpitations. The young teenager couldn’t stand up and needed a wheelchair to get around. After 8 months of seeking help from our medical system which as usual in the case of vaccine injury was devoid of any clues, Olivia upon referral to a specialised pain doctor was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome and central neural sensitisation syndrome. Reporter  Alina Rylkor described the syndrome as ‘Her nervous system interpreted signals sent through her body as pain messages.’ After months of rehabilitation and pain management the teenager has now recovered.  Odey believes that her ill-health began shortly after she was given her Gardasil shot. “I definitely think there was a link, but there’s no way to prove it, Odey told The Northern Star, ” acknowledging that her reality was denied by her doctors.

This week Media Watch upheld the censorship that has seen the media continually ignore the suffering of thousands of girls and now boys who have become ill with similar symptoms to those experienced by Olivia. The Northern Star was doing its job of informing the public that all is not well in regard to Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix.

Media Watch‘s segment was called Northern Star HPV headline wrong.   Presenter Paul Barry called the headline ‘scary and damaging’. The story of HPV vaccines is very scary and there’s plenty of damage but I don’t think that is what Barry meant. For that we have to fast forward to the statements made by Melbourne University virologist Dr David Hawkes who was asked his opinion of The Northern Star headline. It puts people at risk. Because what it does it puts them off vaccinations. It’s actually hurting our healthcare system,” said Hawkes.

We should not be surprised by the virologist’s position – that’s his job and the way he sees the world but I am surprised and alarmed at  the heavy handedness of Media Watch who approached The Northern Star with its criticism resulting in the paper agreeing to change the headline of the story to ‘Teen’s nightmare battle with mystery illness’.

How does the program get away with this? And why did The Northern Star agree? I wasn’t alone in my fury at what Media Watch had done. A comment from Jenna Finch from the Media Watch website summed it up:

Do some further research on HPV adverse events and you will see it’s not fabricated. Look at Colombia High Court’s recent decision and what’s going on in Denmark. A little broader view in this story would have restored my faith in your program but I’m back to realising you are simply a government puppet.

Dr Judy Wilyman author A critical analysis of the Australian Government’s rationale for its vaccination policy.’ puts out a rallying cry to us all that we cannot ignore:

It is time for all Australians to get involved in the vaccination debate as mandatory vaccination is now being forced on many adults in employment situations. The government has also implemented the Adult Immunisation Register to monitor and enforce adult compliance with the recommended schedule of 16 plus vaccines.   

Don’t expect Media Watch to cover this though.

Before HPV there was common sense

The idea that a virus could cause cervical cancer is a relatively new one. In 1977  German virologist Harald zur Hausen claimed that the human papilloma virus – HPV known for causing warts could also cause cervical cancer. From then on all common sense flew out the window.

Why and how the focus changed from an understanding of cervical cancer as a disease associated with social and environmental conditions  to a cancer caused by a virus is addressed in Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed along with the disastrous ramifications for the health of young girls and boys who, in the wake of a scare campaign, are now injected with HPV vaccines.

In my book I explain why I became interested in this story of cervical cancer which stemmed from my diagnosis of cervical dysplasia in the 1980s. This was around the time that the story about a virus was causing the cancer was making the news. With the rates of cancer skyrocketing in the second half of the 20th century the world was concerned about the causes of cancer and in this case cancer of the cervix.  People wanted answers, they wanted to know the cause. Most of all they wanted a cure.

I often wonder about the ability of the scientific community to have most of the world believing that viruses, and not lifestyle and environmental changes, are the cause of these horrid cancers. But that is what has happened in the case of cervical cancer.

Numerous theories as to the cause(s) of cervical cancer have come and gone over the decades. There were the early nineteenth century physicians who claimed that ‘sexual excesses and immorality’ were involved, for it was thought that the disease was found in larger numbers among poorer, city women than amongst married and financially more secure women living in rural areas (Löwy, 2011, p. 140). Domenico Rigoni-Stern, an Italian surgeon, followed this dubious line of reasoning and claimed that cervical cancer rarely occurred in nuns (p. 140). This theory was later discounted when a study revealed that in fact religious sisters were subject to the disease too, and that, contrary to prevailing opinion, women in long-term relationships also developed cervical cancer. Further research by British physician J.C.W. Lever found that “single women bear a proportion of 5.83 per cent, married women 86.6 per cent, and widows 7.5 per cent,” of cases of cancer of the womb. With the notion that sexual excesses and/or immorality were the cause of the disease discredited, researchers began to suspect that a “chronic irritation” or an underlying inflammatory process could be the missing link. In the case of cancer of the uterus it was proposed that the trauma of childbirth itself could be a risk factor. Such speculation might explain why there was more cervical cancer among women of low socioeconomic status than among women of means. Poorer women tended to have more children, lived harsher lives and possibly received less medical care, as well as missing out on much-needed rest and recovery time after the birth of their children (Löwy, 2011, p. 143).

I believe these early researchers were on the right track when they proposed that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were in some way implicated in the disease process. British psychologist, author and researcher Susan Quilliam documented these lifestyle factors that might increase the chance of becoming ill with cervical cancer in her 1989 book Positive Smear. Quilliam stressed the importance of a balanced diet and claimed that deficiencies in vitamin C, beta carotene and folic acid were common in women with cervical precancerous cells. Quilliam strongly emphasised the importance of a healthy environment, good hygiene and excellent nutrition as prerequisites for good health and resistance to disease (1989, pp. 96–98). When discussing the causes of cervical cancer, she doesn’t shy away from a conversation about the contraceptive pill and how it has a negative effect on natural immunity as well as a propensity to lessen the body’s ability to use folic acid (p. 99). Regrettably, since Quilliam’s 1989 book, the pendulum has swung back to regarding cervical cancer as a disease associated with sexual activity. HPV is now seen as the main culprit and any discussion that there may be other factors that lead to this disease is silenced in the mainstream media. To the extent that Harald zur Hausen’s claim that HPV was the cause of the disease was welcomed by the scientific community even though other institutions such as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) were wary and stated: “Although evidence for an association between cervical cancer and sexual activity has been available for over a century, the causal role of a sexually transmitted infectious agent has not yet been proven” (IARC, 1989).

Despite this lack of consensus, in 1989, Professor Ian Frazer and Dr Jian Zhou from the University of Queensland in Australia received funding from CSL Ltd, formerly known as the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories to begin work on a vaccine which “would prevent carcinogenic changes believed to result from HPV infections”.  And what has followed is a disaster for over 73000 girls and boys around the world who have suffered shocking adverse events following their vaccination with HPV vaccines for a disease they are extremely unlikely to ever get.

In the interests of this generation of teenagers about to be vaccinated with these fast-tracked HPV vaccines we need to bring back some commonsense. For that I commend the work of Peter Duesberg and the findings presented in a paper published in Molecular Cytogenetics (2013) of which Peter Duesberg is one of six authors which found that the changes seen in cervical cells are caused by exposure to carcinogens such as cigarette smoke. According to the authors, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.

Indeed  recent research from Egypt puts the HPV causation into further jeopardy. Thabet et al. found that HPV wasn’t the main cause of pre-invasive and invasive cervical cancer among patients in the Delta Region, Egypt. They report the existence of HPV in 39.5% of premalignant lesions and 33.3% in malignant cervical lesions.

Let’s face it. HPV is a very common wart virus. Over 80 percent of us are affected at some stage in our lives. Most of this infection is cleared by the body within two years. Only around 1 percent of the world’s women develop cervical cancer.

This is a cancer much like others in that it is caused by social conditions and environmental factors and other influences such as ageing.

A comprehensive evaluation of the overall impact of aluminum on human health is overdue

A decade since the launch of the vaccine a book questions the claim it prevents cancer,’ wrote Carolyn Moynihan as she began her review of my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed published in August in MercatorNet. Her review was fair with her concluding paragraph:
Lobato concludes her book with an appeal to the media to do their job and give the public the fuller story about the HPV vaccine. You may not agree with her version of the story at all points, but she has shown Big Media some of the things they could be airing in the interests of informed debate.
A month later MercatorNet has published another piece presenting ‘expert’ evidence given by Professor Silvia Carlos an expert on infectious diseases in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the University of Navarre, Spain. One of the issues that they discuss with Professor Silvia Carlos concerns the safety of aluminium in the HPV vaccine. It is vital that we understand this issue as Gardasil contains 225 micrograms of amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate per dose. The purpose and mechanism of the aluminium as an adjuvent is explained by Exley, C., Siesjö, P. & Eriksson as owing to the homogeneity and generally weak immunogenicity of recombinant antigens, the inclusion of adjuvants is often necessary for the induction of robust immune responses and effective immunisation. In other words the human papilloma virus-like particles made by DNA recombination technology are not strong enough to bring about an immune response so aluminium which enhances the body’s immune response is added.
Silvia Carlos claims that the amount of aluminium in the vaccines is low and quotes the CDC, Centres for Disease Control and Prevention which says that aluminium has been safely used in vaccines for over 70 years.
However Canadian researchers Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw state in their paper Aluminium Adjuvants: Are they safe?  
Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. They state that:

Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin. Experimental research clearly shows that aluminium adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In addition: the use of adjuvants in human vaccinations has been linked to adverse effects often classified under Autoimmune (or autoinflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants . Combined with the relatively low cost of hydrated colloidal aluminium salts and their ease of inclusion as effective adjuvants within clinically approved vaccine formulations, the continued use of ABA (aluminium based adjuvants) in human vaccinations is likely to continue. Aluminum adjuvants are also used in vaccines such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-containing vaccines, and Haemophilus influenzae type b and pneumococcal vaccines.

Canadian researchers Tomljenovic and Shaw state that unlike dietary aluminium which usually is rapidly cleared from the body, aluminium that is used in vaccines such as Gardasil ‘is designed to provide a long-lasting cellular exposure’. They explain that while the aluminium that is contained in vaccine facilitates an immune response against antigens it can make its way into the central nervous system. ‘It is not really a matter of much debate that aluminium in various forms can be neurotoxic.’

The authors of a study called Vaccines, adjuvants and autoimmunity have found that Vaccines and autoimmunity are linked fields. They report that: Vaccines are able to elicit the immune system towards an autoimmune reaction. It is vital that we understand the part that vaccines such as Gardasil play in the development of  autoimmune diseases for they are increasing all over the globe and currently affect one in five Americans. In the study the immunologists have reviewed cases of ‘vaccine-induced immunity’ explaining the process as Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants. Adjuvants are added to vaccines in order to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies but in some people they cause immune reactions and symptoms that manifest as autoimmune disease. The latest HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 contains 500 micrograms of (AAHS) which is given as two or three shots.

The safety of our teenagers is at stake. They are being injected all over the world with Gardasil which has 225 micrograms per dose and in Australia next year will be given Gardasil 9 containing 500 micrograms per dose. Tomljenovic and Shaw call for a comprehensive evaluation of the overall impact of aluminum on human health which they stress is overdue. In the meantime the HPV vaccination programs should be ceased. There is zero scientific evidence that HPV vaccines have been proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer in any country (Dr Sin Hang Lee).
