Babies Suffer High Rates of Aluminum Post Vaccination
A Brazilian study published last year in the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology points out the high rates of aluminum found in babies under six months old. Many vaccines that are currently recommended contain aluminum and/or mercury – toxic substances that have been shown to affect brain function.
Dr. Jose Dorea of the University of Brasília and Dr. Rejane Marques of the Federal University of Rondônia, authors of the study, observed high levels of aluminum and mercury in babies following vaccination against Hepatitis B and diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis. These levels are far higher than those potentially resulting from environmental factors like breast-feeding by the mother, and the toxins tend to stay in the infant’s body for a longer period of time.
The impact of this high dosage of toxic substances early in a child’s life has not been studied, and indeed, Drs. Dorea and Marquez admit they do not know what affect such exposure will have on the children’s development and learning ability. But this is a question that all parents must keep in mind as they consider how best to safeguard their child’s health.
