Q. Are there other toxins in vaccines that could cause autism?
Are there additives in the vaccines? Yes. And you should know about them. Vaccines contain the active ingredients that provide immunity. However, there are inactive ingredients that improve potency and prevent contamination. Here is a list of additives and why they are there.
- Preservatives--prevent vaccine contamination with germs (bacteria, fungus): 2-phenoxyethanol, phenol.
- Adjuvants--improve potency/immune response: aluminum salts.
- Additives--prevent vaccine deterioration and sticking to the side of the vial: gelatin, albumin, sucrose, lactose, MSG, glycine.
- Residuals--remains of vaccine production process: formaldehyde, antibiotics (neomycin), egg protein, yeast protein.
Now, after reading the above list, you might be freaking out--aluminum salts? MSG? Formaldehyde? We should point out that only trace amounts of most of these additives are in vaccines. None have been proven harmful in animals or humans in these amounts.19
