Common Vaccine Ingredients

I thought I'd do a post about some of the common ingredients that many vaccinations share. I know that often people are unaware that these exist in vaccines or if they have read the ingredient list, may not know what each ingredient is and the side effects associated. 

First is Formaldehyde & Formalin (an aqueous solution of formaldehyde that is 37% by weight)
This is found in many vaccines. Here is a list of vaccines I found that had them in it: 

Anthrax (Biothrax) 
DT (Sanofi) 
DTaP (Daptacel)
DTaP (Infanrix) 
DTaP (Tripedia) 
DTaP-IPV (Kinrix)
DTaP-HepB-IPV (Pediarix) 
DTap-IPV/Hib (Pentacel) 
Hib (ActHIB) 
Hib (Hiberix) 
Hib/Hep B (Comvax) 
Hep A (Vaqta)
Hep B (Recombivax) 
Hep A/Hep B (Twinvax) 
Influenza (Fluarix) 
Influenza (Flulaval) 
Influenza (Fluzone, standard, high dose & intradermal) 
Japanese Encephalitis (Ixiaro) 
Menigococcal (MCV4 - Menactra)
Menigococcal (MCV4 - Menveo) 
Polio (IPV- Ipol) 
TD (Decavac) 
TD (Tenivac) 
TD (Mass Biologics) 
Tdap (Adacel)
Tdap (Boostrix) 

Here is a description of Formaldehyde/Formalin: 

What is formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable gas or liquid that has a pungent, suffocating odor. It is a volatile organic compound, which is an organic compound that easily becomes a vapor or gas. It is also naturally produced in small, harmless amounts in the human body. The chemical symbol for formaldehyde is CH2O.

Formaldehyde is released into the air by burning wood, kerosene, or natural gas; from automobiles; and from cigarettes and other tobacco products. It is found in the air at home, at work, and outdoors, especially in smog. It is also found in some foods.

Formaldehyde is used as a tissue preservative in medical laboratories, and as an embalming fluid in mortuaries. It is also used as a preservative in some foods, and as an antibacterial ingredient in cosmetics, household antiseptics, medicines, dishwashing liquids, fabric softeners, carpet cleaners, lacquers, and wood products. It is used as a preservative in some paints, paper coatings, and cosmetics; in the permanent press coating on fabrics; in carpets; and in some foam insulation materials.

Formaldehyde is used industrially in the manufacturing of other chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, latex rubber, photographic film, and preservatives; in glues and adhesives for pressed wood products such as particle board and plywood; in leather tanning; and as an industrial fungicide, germicide, and disinfectant.
How might I be exposed to formaldehyde?

You can be exposed to formaldehyde by breathing it or absorbing it through your skin. You can be exposed by breathing indoor or outdoor air that contains it, especially smog. You can also be exposed by smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products, breathing cigarette and other tobacco smoke, or breathing smoke from gas cookers and open fireplaces.

You can be exposed to formaldehyde at home if you use unvented gas or kerosene heaters indoors. You can be exposed by using household products such as construction materials, latex paints, fingernail polish, cosmetics, disinfectants, glues, lacquers, manufactured pressed wood products, fiberglass, new carpets, permanent press fabrics, paper products, and some cleaners.

You can be exposed to formaldehyde at work if you work in a hospital, laboratory, mortuary, or chemical plant. You can be exposed to higher amounts of formaldehyde if you are a doctor, nurse, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacist, pathologist, embalmer, clothing or furniture factory worker, or teacher or student working in a laboratory with preserved specimens.
How can formaldehyde affect my health?

Formaldehyde is listed as a human carcinogen in the Twelfth Report on Carcinogens published by the National Toxicology Program because it causes cancer of the throat, nose, and blood. Drinking large amounts of formaldehyde can cause coma and death due to respiratory failure. Drinking formaldehyde can also cause convulsions, intense pain in the mouth and stomach, nausea, vomiting, signs of shock, vertigo, stupor, and diarrhea. Direct contact of the eyes with formaldehyde can cause permanent eye damage or loss of vision.

Exposure to high levels of formaldehyde can cause a build-up of fluid in the lungs, severe shortness of breath, bronchitis, and rapid heart rate. Continued exposure can also cause severe allergic reactions of the skin and eyes, skin allergies and rashes, and asthma-like allergies with coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and a drop in body temperature.

Exposure to low levels of formaldehyde can irritate and burn the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. In women, exposure can cause menstrual disorders. People with asthma may be more sensitive to exposure to formaldehyde.

Next up is Thimerosal. Found in these following vaccines: 

DT (Sanofi) 
DTaP (Tripedia) 
Influenza (Fluzone: Standard, High Dose & Intradermal) 
Meningococcal (MPSV4*Menomune) - Multi-Dose 

Here is a description of Thimerosal: 

Thiomersal is very toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and in contact with skin (EC hazard symbol T+), with a danger of cumulative effects. It is also very toxic to aquatic organisms and may cause long-term adverse effects in aquatic environments (EC hazard symbol N).[10] In the body, it is metabolized or degraded to ethylmercury (C2H5Hg+) andthiosalicylate.[4

On July 7, 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) issued with the US Public Health Service (USPHS) a joint statement alerting clinicians and the public of concern about Thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative used in some vaccines. The reason for the warning is that Thimerosal contains related mercury compound called ethyl mercury. Mercury is a toxic metal that can cause immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions.

The Food and Drug Administration suggested that some infants, depending on which vaccines they receive and the timing of those vaccines, may be exposed to levels of ethyl mercury that could build up to exceed one of the federal guidelines established for the intake of methyl mercury. Symptoms of mercury toxicity in young children are extremely similar to those of autism.

This can explain the recent increase in the numbers of children diagnosed with autism since the early 1990's. The numerous amount of children diagnosed with autism seems to directly correlate with the recommendation of both the hepatitis B and HIB vaccine to infants in the early 1990s. Autism is a neurological disorder that is characterized by impairments in language, cognitive and social development.
