Are the New Flu Shots Toxic Enough?

Just when I was researching a particular new ingredient, called Squalene,  in the new swine flu shots, this article from Dr. Sherri Tenpenny was published.  The Squalene additive was tested as an experimental vaccine on U.S. soldiers and was found by Tulane University researchers to be a primary cause of Gulf War Syndrome, a spectrum of neurological and immune disorders. So now vaccine makers and the CDC are adding this to the new flu shots aimed at pregnant women, babies and the elderly– and everyone in between. This has prompted me to entitle this post Are the New Flu Shots Toxic Enough?

Be prepared to be shocked and shaken with the contents of this article. Here are Dr. Tenpenny’s well documented findings in the form of questions everyone should be asking.

What is in the regular flu shot?

What we have come to know as the seasonal flu shot is made from:

Egg proteins: including avian contaminated viruses

Gelatin: known to cause allergic reactions and anaphylaxis usually associated with sensitivity to egg or gelatin (anaphylaxis is a rapidly progressing, life-threatening allergic reaction)

Polysorbate 80, (trademarked at Tween 80): a preservative that can cause severe allergic reactions including anaphylaxis.

Formaldehyde: a known carcinogen.

The shot also contains Triton X100 (a strong detergent), table sugar, resin that is known to cause allergic reactions, and an antibiotic (Gentamycin). Multi-dose vials also contain thimerosal, a preservative made with mercury, a known neurotoxin. Infants and children are most at risk for neurological damage from mercury because their nervous systems are still developing. Neurological dysfunctions are also common in adults who have ingested mercury.

Do flu shots work?

The flu shot does not work for babies. In a review of 51 studies involving more than 294,000 children, it was found there was “no evidence that injecting children 6 to 24 months of age with a flu shot was any more effective than a placebo. In children over the age of 2 years, it was effective only 33% of the time in preventing the flu. (“Vaccines for preventing influenza in health children”, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2008)

The flu shot does not work in children with asthma. In a study of 800 children with asthma in which one half were vaccinated and the other half were not, the two groups were compared with respect to clinic visits, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations for asthma. The researchers concluded that no evidence was provided that the influenza vaccine prevented pediatric asthma exacerbations (Christly, C. et al, “Effectiveness of influenza vaccine for the prevention of asthma exacerbations.” Arch Dis Child, August, 2004, 734-5)

“The inactivated flu vaccine, Flumist, does not prevent influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially the ones with asthma…In fact, children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than children who do not get the vaccine.” (The American Thoracic Society’s International Conference, May 15-20, 2009, San Diego)

Adults are also not protected by flu vaccine. In a review of 48 reports including more than 66,000 adults, “Vaccination of healthy adults only reduced risk of influenza by 6%, and reduced the number of missed work days by less than one day (0.16). It did not change the number of people needing to go to a hospital or take time off work.” (“Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults,” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2006)

Although the hype is that the elderly must be protected, in a review of 64 studies in 98 flu seasons, for elderly living in nursing homes, flu shots were non-significant for preventing the flu. For elderly living in the community, vaccines were not significantly effective against influenza, ILI or pneumonia. (“Vaccines for preventing influenza in the elderly,” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2006)

What about the new “Swine Flu” shot?

A new report from a World Health Organization advisory group predicts that global production of vaccine for the novel H1N1 influenza virus could be as much as 4.9 billion doses a year, far higher than previous estimates. The new H1N1 (” swine flu”) vaccine is being made by the pharmaceutical company Novartis. It will contain MF59, a potentially debilitating adjuvant.

MF-59 is oil-based and composed of squalene, Tween 80 and Span85. All oil adjuvants injected into rats were found to be toxic. All rats injected developed a disease similar to multiple sclerosis which left them crippled and dragging their paralyzed hindquarters across their cages. (Kenney, RT. Edleman, R. “Survey of human-use adjuvants,” Expert Review of Vaccines, 2003 p171)

Squalene causes severe arthritis (3 on a scale of 4). Squalene in humans at 10-20 parts per billion leads to severe immune responses, such as autoimmune arthritis and lupus. (Matsumoto, Gary. Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That’s Killing Our Soldiers and Why GI’s Are Only the First Victims of this Vaccine, New York: Basic Books. P54)

Federal health officials will probably recommend that most Americans get three flu shots this fall: one regular flu shot and two doses of any vaccine made against the new swine flu strain. ( Washington Post, Wednesday, May 6)

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is talking to school superintendents around the country, urging them to spend the summer planning what to do if the government decides it needs their buildings for mass vaccinations and the vaccinations of children first. ( CBS News, June 12)

Is mandatory vaccination possible?

In 1946, the U.S. Public Health Service was established and Executive Order 9708 was signed, listing the communicable diseases where quarantines could be used. Between 1946 and 2003, cholera, diphtheria, TB, typhoid, small pox, yellow fever, and viral hemorrhagic fevers were added to the list. In April, 2003, SARS was also added through Executive Order 13295.

In January, 2003, Project BioShield was introduced during Bush’s State of the Union Address. This created permanent and indefinite funding authority to develop “medical countermeasures”. The National Institute of Health was authorized to speed approval of drugs and vaccines. Emergency approval of a “fast tracked” drug and vaccine can be given without the regular course of safety testing.

In April, 2005, Executive Order 13295 added “Influenza caused by novel or re-emergent influenza viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic.” Under this order, the president gave the secretary of HHS the power to quarantine, at his or her discretion.

The secretary of HHS has the power to arrange for the “apprehension and examination of persons reasonably thought to be infected.” A cough or a fever could put a person at risk for being quarantined for an extended period of time without recourse.

December 17, 2006, Division E: The Public readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act was added as an addendum to Defense Appropriations Bill HR 2863 at 11:20 on Saturday night, long after House Committee members had signed off on the bill and gone home for the holidays. Section (b)(1) states that the secretary of HHS can make a determination that a “disease, health condition or threat” constitutes a public health emergency. He or she may then recommend “the manufacture, testing, development, administration, or use of one or more covered counter measures…” A covered countermeasure is defined as a “pandemic product, vaccine or drug.”

Division E also provides complete liability protection for all drugs, vaccines or biological products deemed a “covered counter measure” and used for an outbreak of any kind. Complete liability protection has been given to drug companies for any product used for any public health emergency declared by the secretary of HHS. This means that pharmaceutical companies are now protected from all accountability, unless “criminal intent to do harm” can be proven by the injured party. They are protected from liability even if they know the drug will be harmful.

What can I do about all this?

Here are a few of Dr. Tenpenny’s suggestions. You can add your own ideas to this list once you let your mind wrap itself around this issue.

Give this information to everyone you know and love. Contact local first responders (EMTs, paramedics, fireman, etc). Tell them what will be in the flu shots and that they will be the first ones to get them. Tell local police and discuss your concerns about mandatory vaccination. Contact local city council members about your desire to preserve your liberties. You will need their support to maintain your right to refuse vaccination.

Write an article for your local community newspapers. Samples will be posted soon on Go to A PDF of their oath for easy printing will be posted on Dr. Tenpenny’s site. Connect with other activist organizations, such as those supporting 2nd amendment issues, the environment and animal rights. Help spread the word about their passion and get them involved with yours.

  1. What we need to counter the flu is a campaign to get everyone’s vitamin D levels up into the optimal range. Most people are deficient, especially in the winter, and that’s precisely why colds and flu run rampant in the winter. This approach would also be HUGELY CHEAPER and probably MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE !

  4. Hi guys!! We need to make more people aware of the truth of Swine Flu vaccines.

    I’ve created this little pamphlet with the help of good old ‘copy-paste’ and Photoshop today. It looks really good once its all printed out (front and back), and I’ve left a blank spot (the red rectangle at the bottom) where you can add something else if you wish. I had a lot of fun putting that little sheep logo together.

    The two images are high quality PNG files and the whole thing is easy to print. I hope this will help awaken the mass and bring some awareness. I intend to give some around town whenever I can.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Here is a slightly different version of page one, what I did is that I’ve added 2 quotes in the red rectangle. Feel free to print out this one if you like it, or add whatever you want in the original picture that I’ve linked earlier.

    • Pamphlet is great. I get such anger directed at me and vicious put downs that everything I say needs to be sourced impeccably. Do you have a reference page that each point can be taken back to? My message is lost in the anger & my only resource is validating all sources of information.

      • Validating? Yes, you need some references as there are many already. But the reference request coming from most in the system is a trick to get you to do their work for them or shut up, but that then leads to discrediting the references– no matter the credentionals. It is part of the trained MO. Some time I just say “You got the same google as I do”.

  5. I’ve been researching vaccines for 10 years – a passion. I just read and saved your bottom pamphlet with the quotations in the red box.
    My input? I’d reather spread the word about ALL of the vaccine ingredients and the aluminum and the risk of Alzheimers – to make people think… and spend less room on the “what can we do” section. A few people will be motivated to actually do something… but many more might spread the word about what the risks of personal harm might be. In a perfect world, it would also make them wonder about all of the other vaccines. Wish we had a pamphlet like this that would spread the word about it all.
    Thank you for making this.

    Also, Call me dumb… but I’m not sure how to fold this… the layout seems like the front page should be on the left – so that when you fold it like an accordion, the next article is in the middle… last one on the back. (but I’m not technical!) :o)
