Biochemistry professor Chris Exley’s book, “Imagine You Are an Aluminum Atom,” sheds light on the harmful impact of aluminum on human health, including how its use in vaccines harms children.
A 2011 FDA study that looked at the safety of using aluminum in infant vaccines concluded that “episodic exposures to vaccines that contain aluminum adjuvant continue to be extremely low risk to infants and that the benefits of using vaccines containing aluminum adjuvant outweigh any theoretical concerns.” However, Physicians for Informed Consent recently took another look at the paper and found that a critical math error was made which negates the FDA’s conclusion.
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust. For most of human history, aluminum was not bioavailable; however, it became so in the late 1880s when chemists developed and patented the smelting process that helped turned the metal into the fixture of modern life—and the omnipresent “ecotoxin”—that it is today. Roughly 130 years later, it is no exaggeration to say that aluminum has become an active (albeit unhelpful) “participant in human evolution.”
Scientist Replies to Aluminum Industry’s and Medical Industry’s False and Misleading Claims of Aluminum Safety
Aluminum.org is a pro-aluminum industry website. It even lists an Aluminum Caucus. This month, I decided to look into their list of “myths” about the safety of aluminum product they promote to see if their claims pass the proof-by-Pubmed test.
Aluminum in the food supply comes from natural sources such as water, food additives and aluminum food container and utensil contamination. Certain tea leaves, particularly black tea, contain low levels of aluminum. Intake of aluminum in food additives vary, with dyes, cake mix, processed cheese, baking powder and baking soda among the highest. According to […]
Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate (AAHS) is one of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the PedvaxHIB, Vaqta HepA, and Gardasil Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Studies have found 100% of the intramuscularly injected aluminum vaccine adjuvant is absorbed into the systemic circulation and travels to different sites in the body […]
Aluminum salts are some of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the Pediarix DTaP-HepB-IPV combination vaccine. Recognizing the risks of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, numerous researchers have called for a halt to the use of aluminum salts in vaccines. In one study from France, researchers suggested re-substituting […]
Aluminum Phosphate is one of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the Daptacel DTaP, Pediarix DTaP-HepB-IPV combination vaccine, Twinrix HepA/HepB, Tenivac Td, Mass Biologics Td, and Adacel Tdap. A breakthrough study by scientists from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada demonstrated significant correlations between rates of […]
Used pharmaceutically as an antacid in humans and animals, precipitated aluminum hydroxide is one of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the Infanrix DTaP, Kinrix DTaP-IPV combination vaccine, Pediarix DTaP-HepB-IPV combination vaccine, Havrix Aep A, Engerix-B Hep B, Twinrix HepA/HepB, Ixiaro Japanese Encephalitis, Bexsero Meningococcal, and Boostrix Tdap.

Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth’s crust – a chemical element now recognized as a neurotoxin, especially when the human body reaches its burden, though, according to one of the foremost experts on aluminum, Bioinorganic Chemistry professor Dr. Christopher Exley, said in the Environmental Science Processes & Impacts Journal that, […]
Children’s Health Defense note: When it comes to aluminum and mercury, one plus one does not equal two. The toxicity of mercury alone, and the toxicity of aluminum alone—both of which are concerning enough—are each far below the toxicity that results from exposure to both. Tests of the two metals in combination show that the toxicity levels skyrocket. How long have regulators known this fact?
Section 11 of the MSDS for aluminum sulfate states: “Symptoms may include cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Ingestion also produces a feeling of dryness and puckering of the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat. It may affect behavior/central nervous system and cause ataxia and seizures. High blood concentrations of aluminum may cause aluminum-induced encephalopathy with […]
A breakthrough study by scientists from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada has been published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry demonstrating that significant correlations exist between rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and total aluminum adjuvants given to children through vaccines in several Western countries.
Vaccines are complex laboratory creations designed for one seemingly simple purpose: to stimulate a theoretically protective immune response. However, some vaccines are not as likely to have their intended effect without an “adjuvant” to amplify the vaccinated individual’s response. Aluminum salts are the most common type of vaccine adjuvant in use, despite abundant science establishing aluminum as a neurotoxin.
Scientists have been aware of aluminum’s neurotoxicity for decades. Although aluminum’s apologists have tried to shroud the metal’s risks in manufactured controversy, a growing number of reports by researchers in the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Israel, the U.S. and elsewhere has furnished substantive evidence linking aluminum to neuropathology, including the epidemics of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
