Ingredients in the Swine Flu H1N1 Vaccine; Resources, Risks and Dangers

READ my published Associated Content Article here

A trusted friend of mine who happens to work for a chiropractor sent me an email that disturbed me and piqued my interest into researching vaccines. In the email she stated that her employer wrote and asked for the list of ingredients in the H1N1 vaccine and received a list that was surprising to say the least.


In addition to the viral and bacterial RNA or DNA that is part of the vaccines, here are the fillers:

  • aluminum hydroxide
  • aluminum phosphate
  • ammonium sulfate
  • amphotericin B
  • animal tissues: (pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg, calf (bovine) serum
  • betapropiolactone
  • fetal bovine serum
  • formaldehyde
  • formalin
  • gelatin
  • glycerol
  • human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
  • hydrolyzed gelatin
  • MSG (monosodium glutamate)
  • Neomycin
  • Neomycin sulfate
  • Phenol red indidcator  /
  • Phenoxyethanol (antifreeze) /
  • potassium diphosphate  and monophosphate
  • Polymyxin B
  • Polysorbate 20 and 80
  • Porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
  • Residual MRC5 proteins
  • Sorbitol sucrose
  • Thimerosal (mercury)
  • tri(n)butylphospate
  • VERO cells (a continuous line of monkey kidney cells washed sheep red blood cells)

Risks of the Swine flu vaccine;,ac4bf459

thimerosal, squalene, and cancerous animal cells are far from the only concerns.  Among other potentially dangerous chemicals and substances often found in influenza vaccines are formaldehyde, antibiotics, and even ethylene glycol, known as anti-freeze. Various health experts have varying opinions about the effects of all of these additives, but many doctors still warn against them.

Another cause for concern surfaced in the United Kingdom when the government’s Health Protection Agency sent a letter to senior neurologists warning that the new swine flu vaccine is linked to the deadly nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), the Daily Mail reported in an article entitled “Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America.” The risk of contracting the paralysis-inducing illness was reportedly eight times greater in those who received the infamous government swine flu vaccine of 1976, which killed more people than the actual virus. The leaked letter warned recipients to keep an eye open for GBS and report it immediately.

Many vaccine opponents go much further than highlighting the potential risks, with some making unsubstantiated claims that it will be used as a tool for mass depopulation or eugenics. Some point to anecdotal evidence like comments by Obama’s science czar, who called for drastic population reduction methods in a book called Ecoscience. But what is certain is that the vaccine carries risks — a lot of them according to experts.

The people who seem totally convinced about the inoculations’ safety and efficacy — or who are at least downplaying the potential risks and side effects — appear to be mostly government bureaucrats or people with vested interests. Virtually every medicinal product carries some risk, and these vaccines are no different. To say otherwise is disingenuous.

What is important is that the population be educated about the potential complications and then decide with their families and healthcare providers what approach they would like to take, taking into consideration the risks of the vaccine and of the swine flu. It should be an individual decision without bureaucratic interference or propaganda.

Is the Flu Shot Safe?
The flu vaccine has been available in America sine 1945. The purpose of this vaccine is to help your body build immunity against harmful organisms that make you sick. Your body, however, is equipped to do this naturally.

The mucous membranes, the vehicle by which most disease-causing organisms enter the body, has a defense system of its own called the IgA immune system. Disease-causing organisms kick the IgA immune system into action to fight off the invaders. When a vaccine is injected into the body, the IgA immune system is skipped over and your body’s immune system is jolted into action.

Your body’s immune system being prodded into action this way is unnatural. Do you realize what is in a vaccine? It could contain either killed or live viruses, thimerasol, antifreeze, formaldehyde, carbolic acid, Neomycin and/or streptomycin.

Thimerasol, a preservative that is 50 times more toxic than regular mercury, is suspected of causing some children to become autistic. Other disorders associated with this drug are attention deficit disorder, multiple sclerosis, as well as speech and language deficiencies.

None of us want antifreeze or formaldehyde injected into our bodies. Carbolic acid is a clear and sweet-smelling liquid that is poisonous if touched or swallowed. Neomycin and streptomycin are antibiotics.

According to the news we are in danger of a swine flu pandemic. Everyone is being urged to get a flue shot. A pandemic is a widespread epidemic that affects people in many different countries. What are the symptoms of the swine flu? Should we run to be vaccinated?

Symptoms of the swine flu are the same as symptoms of the regular flu – fever, headache, achy joints, runny nose and/or sore throat, lethargy, no appetite, vomiting and/or diarrhea. So how do you know if you have the swine flu? The only way to know for sure is by laboratory verification. It is impossible to diagnosis yourself.

In 1976, a massive swine flu vaccination campaign took place. Only 1 person died from the swine flu, the vaccine killed 25. Hundreds more were crippled. The government was sued for a total of $1.3 billion dollars. Now the vaccine makers and federal officials have been made immune from lawsuits. So if the vaccine has detrimental effects on you or your children, you won’t be paid a single cent.

The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act of 2006 – the DHHS Secretary is allowed to make the manufacturers of vaccines and drugs used in combating a declared public health emergency immune from liability. Since they have no fear of being sued for billions of dollars, they have no incentive to test vaccines and ensure they are safe.

You can protect yourself from catching the flu without subjecting yourself to a flu shot.
1) Get plenty of sleep.
2) Don’t stuff your face with junk food. In other words, avoid sugar
and processed foods as much as possible.
3) Exercise will naturally strengthen your body’s immune system.
4) Wash your hands with soap and water to loosen and remove
germs that you have unknowingly picked up.

If you would happen to catch the flu, don’t panic. Get plenty of rest and drink lots of liquids (my favorite when I don’t feel well is hot tea). Chicken noodle soup has been scientifically proven to help one get better. The steam from a hot bowl of it helps clear up congestion. Added spices such as garlic and pepper thin mucous to make breathing easier.

You can receive these benefits from store bought chicken noodle soup, but homemade is still the best.

I have never had a flu shot and have only had the flu once during my 43 years. I do not plan on getting a flu shot now. Should you run to be vaccinated? That is a decision you need to make for yourself, just please investigate first and make it an informed one. The new swine flu vaccine has not been thoroughly tested for safety. Those taking this vaccine are being used as guinea pigs. I don’t know about you, but I have no desire to be a guinea pig.

What do Vaccines Typically Contain?

The main ingredient in a vaccine is either killed viruses or live ones that have been ‘attenuated’ (weakened & made less harmful).

Flu vaccines can also contain a number of chemical toxins, including ethylene glycol (antifreeze), formaldehyde, phenol (carbolic acid) and even antibiotics like Neomycin and streptomycin.

In addition to the viruses & other additives, many vaccines also contain immune adjuvants like aluminum & squalene.

The purpose of an immune adjuvant is to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to the vaccination. Adjuvants cause your immune system to overreact to the introduction of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.

Adjuvants allow a reduction in the amount of vaccine required per dose, and the number of doses given per individual. Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns: exactly the goal of government & the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make $-millions from their vaccines!!

Will There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?


The U.S. & U.K. government have contracts with several drug companies to develop & produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis & GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines. The adjuvant? Squalene.

Is Squalene Benign?

Oil-based vaccination adjuvants like squalene have been proved to generate concentrated, unremitting immune responses over long periods of time.

A 2000 study published in the American Journal of Pathology demonstrated a single injection into rats triggered “chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation,” also known as rheumatoid arthritis.

What Does Squalene Do to Humans?

Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. Squalene in olive oil, entering your body thru ingestion, is beneficial thanks to its antioxidant properties.

The difference between “good” & “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry. It incites your immune system to attack ALL the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant!!

Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule WHEREVER IT FINDS IT … including places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to your nervous system.

Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene!

‘MF59’ (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets.


We are experiencing the most dangerous revolution in the world history: the revolution of the State against the man. We are experiencing the worst idolatry of all the time: the deification of the state.

New Vaccines On “Fast Track” To Cause More Harm Than Good

September 3rd, 2009 | Author: Blake Pertuset

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on June 11 that they had raised the pandemic level of the swine flu from phase 5 to 6.  Phase 6 is the highest level on their scale which reflects the rate at which a virus is spread, not how severe it is.  Recently, more information on this has come to light.  On August 6, the WHO’s website released a statement in which they confirmed that “mock-up” vaccines have been circulating in an effort to speed up the process of approving “fast track” manufacturing and distribution of vaccines.  What this means is that people who were lining up for flu vaccinations were instead receiving the actual flu itself, though it was a strain that hadn’t circulated in humans for some time.  The real purpose for this was to ensure that the virus was widespread enough to approve new vaccines for use before any testing was able to be conducted.   In fact, the WHO itself stated that “Time constraints mean that clinical data at the time when pandemic vaccines are first administered will inevitably be limited. Further testing of safety and effectiveness will need to take place after administration of the vaccine has begun.”  GlaxoSmithKline, who is the manufacturer of the vaccines, has said on record that “Clinical trials will be limited, due to the need to provide the vaccine to governments as quickly as possible. Additional studies will therefore be required and conducted after the vaccine is made available.”  This really boils down to the fact that anyone and everyone who gets the vaccine for swine flu is, by definition, a test subject.  This new vaccine has been labeled a “strain change” rather than an entirely new one, which will require much less information on its safety to be submitted before approval.  In the US, manufacturers are allowed to submit safety data as it becomes available when using the same process to make a vaccine rather than before it is released.

Vaccines are intended to build resistance and immunity to harmful organisms that cause illness and disease, but your body’s immune system is already designed to do this.  The difference is that your immune system will fight off any foreign objects as they enter your body through normal means such as mucous membranes.  When these organisms are introduced via atypical avenues, the body’s immune system will essentially switch into overdrive mode to seek and destroy the object wherever it can be found.  Enter squalene, an oil molecule found naturally in the body with antioxidant properties that can normally be found through the nervous system, and brain.  Squalene is being used as an adjuvant, or additive, to the swine flu vaccine so that less of the vaccine itself is required, thus allowing more individual doses to be made available.  The problem therein is that once introduced in an abnormal fashion, your immune system will begin to attack all the squalene in your body, not just what is introduced via the vaccine.  This raises many alarms, because there is now great potential for damage to be done to the nervous system as the naturally stored squalene is under fire.  This can cause effects like many other auto-immune diseases in which the body basically begins to attack itself.

On July 29, a letter from the UK’s Health Protection Agency that was intended to reach about 600 neurologists was leaked.  This letter was intended to warn these doctors of a potential increase in Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which can be triggered by the swine flu vaccine.  GBS is a brain disorder that often causes paralysis and inability to breath, thereby making it lethal in many cases.  500 cases of GBS were detected during the US swine flu pandemic of 1976.  During that outbreak more people died from the vaccine and its side effects than from the flu itself, and the US government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to the families of those affected.  The 1976 vaccine was pulled after 10 weeks, once the link between it and GBS became so apparent and the payouts continued to grow exponentially.

The WHO, along with many health officials and vaccine manufacturers have been working since 2007 on this plan of distributing both disease and vaccine, primarily due to the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) act.  For the many that are unfamiliar with this act, it was designed to protect health officials and vaccine manufacturers from any legal recourse due to vaccinations or drugs.  It states that unless a person can prove that a drug or vaccine manufacturer deliberately and willfully caused harm by their product, no legal action can be taken against them.  Considering the amounts that were paid in 1976 it’s no wonder that they would wish to protect themselves in future endeavors of this magnitude; especially when this vaccine contains ingredients from formaldehyde, antifreeze, and thimerosal (mercury).

This information is intended solely to inform those who need to be informed, as you’re not likely to see these facts on the numerous swine flu and vaccine related reports on the evening news.  Once these vaccines are produced they will first be required for school children, followed by the elderly and health care workers.  Another staggering fact is that half of the health workers in Hong Kong have already refused to be vaccinated over concerns of its effectiveness, and worry of potential side effects.

New Vaccines Contain Various Poisons

August 4th, 2009 | Author: Blake Pertuset

The US governmeny has commissioned two pharmaceutical companies to fast track a vaccine for the swine flu, and have designated young children as the first in line to receive them.  The problem with any forced vaccine is just that, it’s a forced vaccine.  Vaccines are primarily dead or weakened viruses, with the intent of getting your body ready to fight off the real thing.  The difference is that vaccines include a plethora of other chemical agents, and ingredients designed to make the body go over the top in searching out and destroying any viruses.  Flu vaccines alone contain ingredients also present in antifreeze and formaldehyde.  The additive in these swine flu vaccines that seems to be causing the most stir is squalene.  Squalene has not been approved for this use in the US, and actually caused rheumatoid arthritis when injected into rats.  The real problem is that squalene occurs naturally in the body, and when it’s used in a vaccine it will cause the body to seek it out where ever it may be hiding, and destroy it.  This can lead to all sorts of other long term problems.  Maybe Alec Baldwin was right.  Maybe it’s time to move to France.

Health Care Provider seeking Swine Flu (H1N1) guidance

Thought I would post (with permission, of course) an email exchange from earlier this week. (The title of this post is the subject line of the Email.)

Marge,So sorry to bother you again.
My husband and I are both health care providers, and both actually on the “front line” in emergency medicine. We also both work in emergency management. As such, we are both considered in the “high risk” group for both seasonal flu and H1N1. We also have 3 children, ages 17, 12 and 2 who will be considered in the “high risk” group for H1N1.

Because the peak for H1N1 is predicted for October, and the vaccine will be available in limited quantities in mid to late October, I am sincerely concerned about protecting my family.

I’ve attempted research in this area and have come across many essential oils for the prevention of H1N1 – Ravensara, Ravintsara, Cinnamon, Lavendar, Clove, etc., but am not sure the best way to use them to protect my family (diffuser, massage, inhaler,etc.). I have read that rubbing Ravensara on the soles of the feet every morning and evening will afford some protection, but am concerned about using it on the 2 year old and using it long term. I am also not sure of the safest oils to use to protect my 2 year old.

I have purchased Ravensara, Ravintsara, Thyme Linalol, Eucalyptus smithii, and the Flu Foil and Germ Beater blends, but any guidance you could give in their use, use of any additional oils or therapy, and duration of use would be greatly appreciated.

-”Because I suspect others might be pondering the use of Essential Oils to protect themselves and their families against the promised H1N1 epidemic, I thought sharing my comments in public might be appropriate.
First… as a health care provider, I’m sure you know that I can neither give advice, nor even suggest that the essential oils we make available could have any possible therapeutic benefits. To do so would leave me open to the FDA charging me with selling “unregistered drugs”…

having said that.

For the two year old I would definitely use the ravINTsara, not ravensara.. What I would do for your whole family (I’ve seen case studies where this was used in schools and the absenteeism rate plummeted)… I’d blend ravintsara into aloe vera gel…as high as a 10% dilution… 5% for the 2 year old, and use that as “hand cream” three times a day.

For the whole family… I would diffuse Flu Foil… or even use inhalers on a regular basis (ie, every hour or so, for you and your hubbie…or between patients.) I’d reserve the Euc Smithii for ‘cold symptoms’… it’s the best decongestant for the little one…and effective for all of you… best by diffusion, or a drop on the pillow case.

I’d use the Germbeater as a room spray, or occasionally diffuse it… keeping in mind that it is truly aimed at bacteria, rather than viruses..virii?? specifically.”

Ravintsara, Ravensara, Palma Rosa, Eucalyptus and Lavender are the oils used in Nature’s Gift FLU FOIL, but you could very well make your own blend by purchasing the separate oils.

And as for the Germbeater blend that includes the following essential oils:

Lemon Myrtle, touched with Tea Tree and Lemon scented Tea Tree, Ravensara for its antiviral potential, Cedarwood, Pine, Lemon Eucalyptus for molds and spores, and the powerfully germ killing Cinnamon Bark. This is not a blend to use on the skin, it will burn, and contains a known sensitizer. It is designed for the diffuser, or to be diluted into a room and countertop spray.


“The thyme linalol would be a gentle and safe antibacterial for the little one, as well as the whole family. I suspect that, had you not already purchased it, you might find Thyme Thujanol a bit more effective, but you have the linalol on hand, so I would go with that.

I’d look at alternating the ravensara and ravintsara for the older members of the family…either by diffusion, or, as mentioned, in the Aloe gel… it is my personal belief that it would be a more effective anti viral than the antibacterial soaps you probably use in your practices.

I’d think about diffusing flu foil and germ beater alternately…

and I’d look at using one oil or blend for 3 or 4 days, then alternate with another… ie, perhaps ravensara for 3 days, then flu foil, then back again. I think switching off is better than always using the same oils.

hope some of this helps… you and yours are most definitely on the front lines and more at risk than the general population. GOOD LUCK… and I hope to hear come winter that you all made it through ‘flu season’ unscathed!!!

as you can tell, I’m not much on the theory that the oils should be applied to the soles of the feet OH..and neither cinnamon nor cloves should be used topically. We have them both in our germbeater spice blend… but I’d not use them other than in a room spray or a blend for diffusion.

hope all of this helps.

I would LOVE to post your question and my rambling answer on our blog with your permission…”

This is such good advice. I am a second grade teacher and my principal will not let me use any oils in my classroom. I was hoping to be able to diffuse some blends. He is afraid someone will have a reaction and even if it’s not caused by an essential oil blend a parent might think it is and sue us. So, I can only use them on myself.
I am going to order the Ravintsara Oil. I didn’t realize it was better than the ravensara. Thanks again for your help!
