I live in Australia, and my choices are Infanrix Hexa and Pediacel. You recommend the Pediacel because it has less aluminum, which you said is 330 mg as opposed to Hexa's 850. Here's where I get confused: I looked at the official product info for both and it says
1.5 mg aluminum phosphate
Adsorbed on aluminum hydroxide, hydrated 0.5 milligrams
Adsorbed on aluminum phosphate, .32 milligrams
It looks like Hexa has less aluminum. Can you explain? Many thanks!
Thank you so much for your prompt reply! It means so much to me.
Just to clarify, the raw aluminium content of Hexa is 850 mg? On the product info, the quantity of aluminium compounds is .82 mg, which seems like less to me -- but then I don't really know how to read these things.
Many thanks again.
you are confusing micrograms and milligrams. There are 850 micrograms (or 820, not sure which), which is equal to 0.85 milligrams. Doesn't matter which one you use. This compares to only 330 micrograms (0.33 milligrams) in the other kind
