Aborted Fetus, Dog Kidneys, Mouse Brains Used to Your Vaccines!!!??? OH, MY!?

As you read this list, understand cell lines and vaccines do become contaminated. This is often hidden under the term “adventitious agents.”
Disgusting Ingredient #1: Cells From Aborted Fetus
Aborted fetal cells, listed on vaccine package inserts as “Human Fetal Diploid Cells.” Two aborted fetal cell lines, WI-38 and MRC-5, have been grown under laboratory conditions since the 1960s.
The cells are used to grow viruses used which are then collected from the cell cultures and processed further to produce the vaccine itself.
Terms to Investigate: PERC6, MRC5, WI-38, HEK-293
Which Vaccines? Adenovirus vaccine, DTaP vaccine, Hep A vaccine, Hep B vaccine, MMR vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #2: Serum From Aborted Calf Fetus Blood
One of the more grotesque methods involved in vaccine manufacturing is the collection of fetal bovine serum. The purpose for serum is providing a nutrient broth for viruses to grow in cells.
How is the blood collected?
According to the Humane Research Australia website:
After slaughter and bleeding of the cow at an abattoir, the mother’s uterus containing the calf fetus is removed during the evisceration process (removal of the mother’s internal organs) and transferred to the blood collection room. A needle is then inserted between the fetus’s ribs directly into its heart and the blood is vacuumed into a sterile collection bag. This process is aimed at minimizing the risk of contamination of the serum with micro-organisms from the fetus and its environment. Only fetuses over the age of three months are used otherwise the heart is considered too small to puncture.
Once collected, the blood is allowed to clot at room temperature and the serum separated through a process known as refrigerated centrifugation. [1]
Terms to Investigate: Fetal Bovine Serum
Which Vaccines? Adenovirus vaccine, MMR vaccine, Rotavirus vaccine, Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #3: Cells From Armyworms
The FDA approved the Flublok vaccine on January 16, 2013.
This new technology is being touted as the wave of the future. It utilizes an insect cell line (expresSF+®) that is derived from cells of the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda.
The vaccine package insert for Flublok also mentions:
Each 0.5 mL dose of Flublok may also contain residual amounts of baculovirus and host cell proteins (≤ 28.5 mcg), baculovirus and cellular DNA (≤ 10 ng) … [2]
Terms to Investigate: insect cell line (expresSF+)
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #4: Cells From Monkey Kidneys
As mentioned above, monkey kidney tissue is used to support the growth of certain viruses used in vaccine production. There remains a huge controversy over using these cells and their role contaminating the polio vaccine in the 1950s.
The story is best told in the Congressional papers of a courageous scientist, Bernice Eddy. The Executive Reorganization and Government Research of the Committee on Government Operations United States Senate, Ninety-Second Congress, Second Session [1972] states on page 500:
The next and only serious vaccine crisis that has occurred since the polio episode was the realization in mid-1961 that a monkey virus later shown to cause tumors in hamsters was contaminating both polio and adenovirus vaccines. The virus, known as SV40, was entering the vaccines and, just as in the polio case were surviving the formalin treatment.
There were several states by which the full extent of the SV40 problem became known. First was the discovery in 1959-1960 by a DBS scientist, once again Bernice Eddy, that an unknown agent in the monkey kidney cells used to produce polio and adenovirus vaccines would cause tumors when the cells were injected into hamsters.
Page 502:
In 1954 Eddy, as a polio control officer, found live virus in supposedly killed polio vaccine; in 1955 she was relieved of her duties as polio control officer … After her discoveries concerning the SV40 virus, her staff and animal space were reduced and she was demoted from head of a section to head of a unit.
Page 505:
… even when the contaminating virus was found to be oncogenic [cancer causing] in hamsters, the DBS [Division of Biologics Standards] and its expert advisory committee decided to leave existing stocks on the market rather than risk eroding public confidence by a recall.
and:
There has been a tendency on the part of certain higher government circles to play down any open discussion of problems associated with vaccines … [3]
Terms to Investigate: Vero (monkey kidney) cell culture, SV40, Bernice Eddy
Which Vaccines? DTaP vaccine, Japanese Encephalitis vaccine, Polio vaccine, Rotavirus vaccine, Vaccinia vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #5: Cells From Dog Kidneys
On November 20, 2012, the FDA approved the seasonal influenza vaccine, Flucelvax, manufactured by Novartis. [4]
This vaccine is mass-produced using the continuous cell line Madin Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) as vaccine cell substrate. [5]
Terms to Investigate: Madin Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK)
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #6: Mouse Brain
Viral vaccines prepared in tissue culture or mouse brain have been used in many Asian countries. According to the CDC website, the inactivated mouse brain-derived JE vaccine used in the United States since 1992 is no longer available. [6]
Of course, with any vaccine, the adverse reactions are rarely tracked and downplayed by medical authorities. However, the injuries from vaccines can be quite serious. [7, 8]
Terms to Investigate: inactivated mouse brain (IMB), suckling mouse brain (SMB), JE virus (Beijing-1), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
Which Vaccines? Japanese encephalitis vaccine, Rabies vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #7: Chicken Embryos
Chickens and their embryos have long been used in the production of vaccines.
These methods were popularized in the 1920s and 1930s by Thomas Rivers and others at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. [9]
Terms to Investigate: Chick embryo
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Yellow fever vaccine

Bee Venom Cures HIV!!!???

Bee Venom Cures HIV!!!???

A new study has shown that bee venom can kill the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have demonstrated that a toxin called melittin found in bee venom can destroy HIV by poking holes in the envelope surrounding the virus, according to a news release sent out by Washington University.

Visit Washington University’s website to read more about the study.

Nanoparticles smaller than HIV were infused with the bee venom toxin, explains U.S. News & World Report. A “protective bumper” was added to the nanoparticle’s surface, allowing it to bounce off normal cells and leave them intact. Normal cells are larger than HIV, so the nanoparticles target HIV, which is so small it fits between the bumpers.

“Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope,” said research instructor Joshua L. Hood, MD, PhD, via the news release. “The melittin forms little pore-like attack complexes and ruptures the envelope, stripping it off the virus.” Adding, “We are attacking an inherent physical property of HIV. Theoretically, there isn’t any way for the virus to adapt to that. The virus has to have a protective coat, a double-layered membrane that covers the virus.”

This revelation can lead to the development of a vaginal gel to prevent the spread of HIV and, it seems, an intravenous treatment to help those already infected. “Our hope is that in places where HIV is running rampant, people could use this gel as a preventive measure to stop the initial infection,” said Hood.

The bee venom HIV study was published on Thursday in the journal Antiviral Therapy, according to U.S. News & World Report.

This study comes on the heels of news that a Mississippi baby with HIV has apparently been cured. The mother was diagnosed with HIV during labor and the baby received a three-drug treatment just 30 hours after birth, before tests confirmed the infant was infected. The child, now 2 years old, has been off medication for about a year and shows no sign of infection.

More than 34 million people are living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, according to amFAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. Of these, 3.3 million are under the age of 15 years old. Each day, almost 7,000 people contract HIV around the globe.

Avondale Man Killed by His Dog!!!???

Avondale Man Killed by His Dog!!!???

Cincinnati police are investigating the death of a man who was mauled by a dog.

Police and EMS crews were called to the 3400 block of Cleveland Court at around 2 a.m. by Ronnel Brown, who said his dog had attacked him and he was about to pass out.

The dog, which authorities called an Alapaha, was put down by police responding to the attack, but Brown, 40, could not be saved.

Neighbors said Brown had raised the dog since it was a pup and had never been a problem for anyone. Brown had two other puppies at his house.

“He would be aggressive towards other dogs maybe, but we never saw him this way really toward our brother. It’s shocking. We are so in shock,” Delisa Brown said.

The incident is being investigated as an accidental death.

“18 MONTH GIRL FINGER TIPS AMPUTATED!!!!????”

Published June 24, 2012 by lenaleansaywhat

A little girl is recovering at a hospital after she apparently stuck her hand into the family fish tank and a piranha bit off the tip of her finger this week at their Maine Township home.
 
The 18-month-old girl was at her home in the Bay Colony residential complex Tuesday night, said Frank Bilecki, a spokesman for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

The parents suddenly heard their daughter start crying and rushed over to find her finger bleeding. They became frantic when they found the child’s fingertip was severed and automatically believed the culprit was their 65-pound family pit bull, said Bilecki.

They called 911 and an ambulance took her to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where a doctor realized this was not the case. 

“He said: ‘This is not a dog bite,’’’ Bilecki said.

Authorities called her father, who was still at the home, and he immediately plunged his hand into the fish bowl, grabbing one of two piranhas.

“He had no fear; these were truly fatherly instincts,’’ Bilecki said. “He grabbed a knife and cut it open and found her fingertip right there.’’

The piece of her finger was taken to the hospital and doctors were trying to re-attach it, but Bilecki did not know if that operation was successful as of Friday afternoon.

“He (father) was so emotional about it they almost had to drive for him,’’ Bilecki said of the sheriff’s officers who helped out.
 
Bilecki said he did not know if the tank, which was close to where the girl was playing, was covered or how the child got access to it.
 
Bilecki said the mother and father are not facing any citations after the incident.

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services was called to make sure there were no “issues,’’ said Bilecki, who added that it was his understanding that there were none.

Sheriff’s police, also, did not show any calls at the home.

“We checked out logs to see if we had any other previous calls and there were none whatsoever,’’ Bilecki said.

“The parents are truly distraught and freaked out by the incident,’’ said Bilecki. “They appear to be good parents in an unfortunate situation.’’

The girl is their only child and no other children live at the home, said Bilecki.

The Shedd Aquarium gets one or two calls a year from pet owners or physicians wanting to know how to treat a piranha bite. But the experts there rarely hear about one of the fish nipping off a fingertip, said George Parsons, director of the Shedd’s fishes department.

Parsons said piranhas, which can be sold legally in Illinois, are wild animals with razor-sharp teeth and powerful jaws that can do major damage.

The most common type of piranha sold in pet shops is the red belly, which can grow up to eight inches long with a mouth the diameter of a shot glass, he said. It’s not clear what type of piranha bit the girl.

Despite their wild instincts, piranhas are typically a shy breed — they tend not to interact with people, Parsons said. As they spend time in tanks, they’re conditioned to know that food always comes from the top, he said.
 
“Anything that disturbs the water from the top they associate with food, and they’ll try and go after it,” he said. “I’m sure it wasn’t a malicious attack, but more of a mistaken instance.”
 
Parsons said piranha owners need to do research on the fish — it’s important to have a large aquarium and use a plastic tong to feed them so there’s no chance of the animal biting someone’s hand. He also recommends a secure top with a lock so people can’t reach into the tank.
