Amount of Aluminum in Infant Vaccines ‘Akin to a Lottery,’ Researchers Say

A new study led by Christopher Exley, Ph.D. found the aluminum content in infant vaccines is largely unmonitored and sometimes exceeds the amount listed on the product insert. Exley’s team also released a study showing a strong link between aluminum exposure and a type of Alzheimer’s disease.

Imagine You Are An Aluminum Atom: Discussions With Mr. Aluminum

Professor Christopher Exley is a firm believer that science is only useful when it is properly communicated. Scientific papers are difficult vehicles for the wider communication of science and thus he has always endeavored to tell the story of his scientific research as widely as possible through myriad blogs, presentations, and interviews.

University Shuts Down World-Renowned Aluminum Expert’s Research After Big Pharma Sets Up Shop on Campus

Officials at Keele University in the UK have disabled world-renowned aluminum expert Christopher Exley’s website and prevented him from receiving any philanthropic/charitable funding to support his research in the bioinorganic chemistry of aluminum and neurodegenerative disease — essentially the group’s main research theme over the past 29 years.

Corrigendum to “Acute exposure and chronic retention of aluminum in three vaccine schedules and effects of genetic and environmental variation”

The Yuan Lab has developed Gn pig models representing HGM as healthy (HHGM) and unhealthy (UHGM). They found that vaccinated UHMG pigs had higher viral shedding titres and more severe clinical signs compared to HHGM pigs after virulent HRV challenge. In another study, they found that Lactobacillus partially prevented intestinal injury caused by HRV, ameliorating rotavirus diarrhea. Such studies clearly demonstrate the protective nature of commensal flora and that differences in immune responses and clinical disease are due to the influence of microbial differences.

Aluminum Content of Pediatric Vaccines ‘Absurdly High,’ New Book Says

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.

Impact of catch-up vaccination on aluminum exposure due to new laws and post social distancing

Delay or catch-up vaccination due to COVID19 social distancing should be done judiciously if at all, to minimize aluminum toxicity.

New Safety Concerns Raised About the Quantities of Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines

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.

Acute exposure and chronic retention of aluminum in three vaccine schedules and effects of genetic and environmental variation

The CDC vaccine schedule results in a high degree of chronic aluminum toxicity in the first seven months of life.

Institutional Inertia: Is Enough Being Done to Protect Children from Aluminum Toxicity?

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.”

Myalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome following immunization: macrophagic myofasciitis and animal studies support linkage to aluminum adjuvant persistency and diffusion in the immune system

We present epidemiological, clinical and experimental evidence that Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) constitutes a major type of adverse effect of vaccines, especially those containing poorly degradable particulate aluminum adjuvants.

Scientist Replies to Aluminum Industry’s and Medical Industry’s False and Misleading Claims of Aluminum Safety 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.

Dietary Aluminum

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)

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

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 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, […]

Aluminum and Mercury Synergy: A “Perfect Storm”

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?

Aluminum Sulfate – Material Safety Data Sheet

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 […]

New Animal Study Reveals Aluminum Adjuvants Can Impair Social Behavior

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.

Immunoexcitotoxicity as the central mechanism of etiopathology and treatment of autism spectrum disorders: a possible role of fluoride and aluminum

Fluoride and aluminum, alone or in combination, can produce the condition of “immunoexcitotoxicity” that leads to the pathological changes seen in autism. 

Reconsideration of the immunotherapeutic pediatric safe dose levels of aluminum

The levels of aluminum present in individual vaccines and in the modern vaccine schedule as a whole are problematically high.

Synergism in aluminum and mercury neurotoxicity

Aluminum and mercury sulfates may contribute to neurodegeneration and progressive age-related functional decline such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Regulators Remain Indifferent to Unsafe Levels of Aluminum in Vaccines

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.

Combined subchronic toxicity of aluminum (III), titanium (IV) and silicon (IV) oxide nanoparticles and its alleviation with a complex of bioprotectors

Aluminum nanoparticles are toxic on their own and in combination with other metal nanoparticles.

High Aluminum Found in Autism Brain Tissue

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).

Subcutaneous injections of aluminum at vaccine adjuvant levels activate innate immune genes in mouse brain that are homologous with biomarkers of autism

Aluminum adjuvants promote brain inflammation, and males appear to be more susceptible to aluminum’s toxic effects.
