Toxins in Vaccines

Which vaccines are toxic?

Which vaccines contain the most toxic ingredients?

The Myth of Toxins in Vaccines

Although you might actually find “answers” to these questions on some anti-vaccine websites, there are of course no toxic ingredients in vaccines.

“Solely the dose determines that a thing is not a poison.”


It sure does sound scary when folks describe all of the ingredients in vaccines though, doesn’t it?

Which vaccines contain aborted fetal tissue and squalene? And why are the other ingredients toxic?

It will likely surprise you to know, despite that some folks show off long lists of vaccine ingredients, the average vaccine only contains a handful of ingredients.

There are no hidden ingredients and none of the listed ingredients are toxic, especially not in the amounts that we get exposed to from vaccines.

What about formaldehyde?

Isn’t formaldehyde listed as a carcinogen?

“Formaldehyde also occurs naturally in the environment. It is produced in small amounts by most living organisms as part of normal metabolic processes.”

National Cancer Institute

Formaldehyde is actually a great example.

Formaldehyde is used in some vaccines to inactive toxins or kill viruses. Only residual amounts are actually left in the final vaccine.

“When the body breaks down formaldehyde, it does not distinguish between formaldehyde from vaccines and that which is naturally produced or environmental.”

FDA Common Ingredients in U.S. Licensed Vaccines

That small amount of residual formaldehyde is not going to cause cancer. It is the long-term exposure to high amounts of formaldehyde, usually inhaled formaldehyde, that is what we are concerned about.

“Carcinogens do not cause cancer at all times, under all circumstances.”

American Cancer Society

While formaldehyde can be a toxin, the formaldehyde in vaccines is not toxic.

Vaccine Ingredients are not Toxic

Extensive lists of all vaccine ingredients are easy to find. They are even included on the vaccine’s package insert.

And like formaldehyde, as you do your research, you will find that none of these ingredients act as toxins.

Vaccines ingredients are safe.

Vaccines are safe.

    Yeah so I guess that all of the mothers/parents speaking out about how their child regressed rapidly post vaccine shots is a myth/hoax/lie too right? And that the billions being paid out to people damaged by the vaccine shots is all fairy tale? And all of the people speaking out about how their child was neurologically damaged by shots that CONTAIN NEUROTOXINS???
