Italian scientists find unexpected contaminants in all pediatric vaccines, including lead, stainless steel, tungsten, iron, and chromium


New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines: Micro- and Nanocontamination


Dr. Antonietta M. Gatti, Stefano Montanari. International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, January 2017.


Scientists found contaminants in all vaccines that are not listed on the label of the vaccines. “The analyses carried out show that in all samples checked vaccines contain non biocompatible and bio-persistent foreign bodies which are not declared by the Producers, against which the body reacts in any case. This new investigation represents a new quality control that can be adopted to assess the safety of a vaccine. Our hypothesis is that this contamination is unintentional, since it is probably due to polluted components or procedures of industrial processes (e.g. filtrations) used to produce vaccines, not investigated and not detected by the Producers. If our hypothesis is actually the case, a close inspection of the working places and the full knowledge of the whole procedure of vaccine preparation would probably allow to eliminate the problem.”
