Vaccine: Contamination by Pathogens

Your physician may have read the recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine which had pictures of a man with Eczema Vaccinatum from a Smallpox vaccination. The risks of vaccination must be examined carefully in the context of the risk of dying of the disease. In many cases, there are more prudent alternatives.

Images in Clinical Medicine: Eczema Vaccinatum — A Timely Reminder

A.E. Moses and R. Cohen-Poradosu, New England Journal of Medicine, 28 Mar 2002

Most people have never read articles in the leading journals on contamination of vaccines. It is bad enough that a vaccine may kill or disable you in its own right. It is quite another thing when improperly prepared vaccines gratuitously create morbidity and mortality. Benjamin McRearden has pulled together a compelling review of the literature in his paper:

What Is Coming Through That Needle? The Problem of Pathogenic Vaccine Contamination by Benjamin McRearden.

Some excerpts:

“In conclusion, most commercially available bovine sera are contaminated with BVDV (bovine viral diarrhea) and, although there is no evidence that the virus is infectious, bovine sera should be screened for this virus…for the development or production of vaccine.” Yanagi M, Bukh J, Emerson SU, Purcell RH. Contamination of commercially available fetal bovine sera with bovine viral diarrhea virus genomes: implications for the study of hepatitis C virus in cell cultures. J Infect Dis 1996 Dec;174(6):1324-7.

“A study describes an outbreak of disease among goats due to a vaccine contaminated with a bovine pestivirus; oddly, these animals experienced reproductive failure and lesions to the central nervous system. So, can these disease symptoms in varied organs and tissues also occur in humans when they carry this virus short or long-term?” Loken T, Krogsrud J, Bjerkas I. Outbreaks of border disease in goats induced by a pestivirus-contaminated orf vaccine, with virus transmission to sheep and cattle. J Comp Pathol 1991 Feb;104(2):195-209.

“Because many medical-use biological products (including vaccines) are now being cultured or produced on what is called “continuous” cell lines (i.e., these are cell cultures consisting of “immortal” or cancerous types of cells because they have no limits on how many times they can divide), there is concern that viral contamination of these cell lines with a pathogen like bovine viral diarrhea virus, could spread cancer-promoting material into the human recipient.”

Since typical lab tests will never detect these latent viruses or carcinogenic activity until it is too late, it is essential to use more sophisticated approaches to protect yourself.
