My own independent investigation has completely debunked the peanut oil myth, at least for me. I learned a lot in the process.
What is this information with "obvious merit" I'm dismissing?
I did ask and just want to clarify
again, to clarify - the only adjuvant(s) used are?
I'm unclear on what you're arguing; I apologize.
It looks like most vax manufacturers do disclose ingredients: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/b/excipient-table-2.pdf
Are you suspecting that the disclosure is not complete and that there are still hidden ingredients?
Yes that is what I think is possible.
For what it's worth Rrrrrachael I don't believe you are a shill or a blogger or anything like that. I know some here do but I don't. I think you are a very smart lady. I think you research things just like we all do and as we all know each of us here have different interpretations of that research and are impressed and compelled by different evidence. I do have an issue with your tone with people from time to time but I know I'm guilty of that too and I'm trying to work on that. For me I really don't think it's a matter of right or wrong although you may disagree. I think we can all present our evidence and discuss like adults and its really up to the lurkers or people who are engaged in the discussion to weigh all the evidence for themselves and come to their own conclusions. those conclusions may be very different but who cares? Why does that have to be a problem? I understand you feel based on the evidence you have found that peanut oil is definitely not an undisclosed ingredient in vaccines. I am still on the fence honestly. I think while maybe unlikely, it is a possibility. I think you and I also are looking at things from a very different place. Overall you seem to trust our government agencies or the pharmaceutical industry. You do not question their motives as nefarious although you do recognize there are problems with each. I on the other hand have a massive amount of distrust in both based on my own research and personal experiences. Each position is liable to skew the way evidence is weighed. I'm sure you may disagree and claim to be 100 percent objective when it comes to the evidence, but I personally think that level of objectivity is impossible. We are all human beings and FEELINGS INTUITION AND EMOTION are primary driving forces in all of us.
Do you think peanut oil derivatives were EVER hidden, non-stated ingredients in vaccines, or in any other pharmaceutical product?
At what point do you think that pharmaceutical companies stopped using them?
is it possible that the pharmaceutical industry is able to continue using these derivatives without labeling them as such, simply by calling them something else, since they are not necessarily required to listens the original source of the derivatives?
I haven't researched the peanut oil in vaccines issue, but I have to wonder what would be the consequences of them NOT listing it? As a parent of allergic kids, I have to read labels on anything I buy w/ a label (& even stuff w/o a label, which involves calling the company to get information which most of the time, I'm not successful on as they don't know, say they'll have someone call me back & my phone doesn't ring, etc.). Companies are now required to list if food has wheat, dairy & other common allergens in it. But what's the consequence if they don't? I don't see pharma companies going to any lengths to be completely up front just because it does not benefit them. It's very easy for multi billion dollar companies to say, oops, sorry & pay a few million if they get caught than it is for them to help those of us who need it. Not saying for sure that this is happening, just saying that it's why I'm skeptical.
Are you kidding? There are so many loopholes, the pharmaceutical industry can easily drive a truck through them.
Among other things, many pharmaceutical products can be--and are--used off-label.
It seems to me that there are two separate questions for this issue.
1). Have vaccines EVER contained adjuvants (or any other ingredient) derived from peanuts or peanut oil?
2) Do any vaccines currently contain adjuvants (or any other ingredient) derived from ppeanuts or peanut oil?
We also have to remember that vaccines are given to livestock as well as to humans; would the be any possibility of someone with a genetic pdisposition to peanut allergy being affected by eating meat from an animal who'd been given vaccines containing peanut derivatives?
