Here is a very informative interview with Dr Suzanne Humphries, it is only about half an hour long. She brings up some interesting up to date info on the infant immune system. She also goes into aluminum and provides us with a stunning quote from Paul Offit. This one, from the Chop website which was "reviewed by Paul Offit in March 2014".

Quote:
Aluminum quantities fluctuate naturally during normal cellular activity. It is found in all tissues and is also believed to play an important role in the development of a healthy fetus.
You have got to be kidding me. How the heck do they get away with this?

While on the immune system, here is a presentation by Keith Wassung on Natural Immunity vs Synthetic Immunity. It is about 40 minutes long, but well worth the time!

You have got to get a load of his evidence for this:

http://www.chop.edu/service/vaccine-.../aluminum.html

"Aluminum quantities fluctuate naturally during normal cellular activity. It is found in all tissues and is also believed to play an important role in the development of a healthy fetus. This is supported by several findings:

During healthy pregnancies the amount of aluminum in a woman's blood increases.

The amount of aluminum in the blood of the fetus increases between four and a half and six months gestation and again at eight months gestation.

At delivery, the blood of full-term infants contains more aluminum than the mother's, but it decreases shortly after delivery.

The blood of premature infants has more aluminum than that of full-term infants.

The concentrations of aluminum in brain tissue are high during gestation and highest immediately after birth.

The breast milk of moms with premature infants contains more aluminum than that of moms who carried their babies to term."

So…aluminum increases as pregnancy goes along. How is that evidence that aluminum is safe or that extra aluminum is beneficial?? It is not.

Lead levels increase as pregnancy goes along as well.

"Blood lead levels increase during pregnancy, from 24 weeks of gestation until delivery, because of increased gastrointestinal absorption and because of an increase in bone turnover in this period (Hertz-Picciotto et al. 2000; O'Flaherty et al. 1995)"

Perhaps Offitt should pronouce that lead is essential to healthy fetal development? (sarcasm - although if vaccines contained lead, I could see him making the pronouncment).

I really am at a loss, I kind of think they would be in the business of pushing supplements!

Here, take you daily dose of LEAD! It's Dr approved!
