2-phenoxyethanol is used in a number of vaccines, quite a few which are given to infants and children before they turn one year old.

In this informative sheet on its qualities, it clearly states that:

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that the
chemical is toxic to infants via ingestion, and “can depress the central nervous system and may cause vomiting and diarrhea.”
Combined with chlorphenesin, these two chemicals can cause respiratory depression in infants.7 Since these chemicals are often present in cosmetics and lotions applied to the hands and are easily ingested, caution should be exercised.

Symptoms of a depressed central nervous system: decreased rate of breathing, decreased heart rate, and loss of consciousness possibly leading to coma or death (wikipedia).

Study on breathing changes in infants/ SIDS:

Hmmmm, right?

oh yeah, a page on SIDS and its causes.

Note especially this:

A leading theory is that an infant who appears to be healthy has an underlying defect located in the brain stem. This area in the brain controls heart and lung functions, including heart rate and breathing. SIDS studies indicate some babies have a delay in the development of or an abnormality in the part of the brain involved in breathing and waking. Babies born with this abnormality may be more vulnerable to sudden death.

Yet, there are ZERO studies concerning 2-phenoxyethanol and infants.

speaking of ingredients...polysorbate 80

Problems caused by Polysorbate 80:
• It thumps your immune system.
• It’s hard on fertility and can even make you sterile.
• It whacks your intestines, causing problems such as colitis, leaky gut syndrome, and inflammatory bowel disease.
• Damaged intestines mean you can’t absorb the nutrition you need, which opens another big can of worms.
• And a flaky small intestine also interferes with everything your endocrine system needs to do because most of what your thyroid, adrenals, etc. do, they do in your small intestine. Well, who knew?
• It causes inflammation, the main cause of disease. Heart disease, for one.
• It leads to obesity.
• And causes metabolic syndrome, the beginning of Type 2 Diabetes.

What products contain Polysorbate 80
• The 5-in-1 vaccines Pediacel, Pediatrix and Pentacel
• The Gardasil HPV vaccine which causes all sorts of mayhem, including damaging ovaries, the vagina, and the womb
• Diptheria/tetanus/whooping cough combination vaccines Infantix, Tripedia, Kinrix
• Flu vaccines
• Pneumonia vaccine
• Rotavirus vaccine
• Depo-Provera, not technically a vaccine, but a contraceptive, contains Polysorbate 80.
• And almost surely more

A baby’s immune system and blood/brain barrier are not fully developed, so they can’t really deal with vaccines until after they celebrate their third birthday. Because so many people in power are bought-and-paid-for, though, it’s hard to protect our babies by avoiding vaccines.

Vaccine advocates love to remind you that polysobate 80 is also in most commercial ice cream products, cosmetics and shampoos. Like dish detergent, it is an emulsifier.

Polysorbate 80 is an excipient that is used to stabilize aqueous formulations of medications for parenteral administration, and used as an emulsifier in the manufacture of the popular antiarrhythmic amiodarone.[6] It is also used as an excipient in some European and Canadian influenza vaccines. Influenza vaccines contain 25 μg of polysorbate 80 per dose. It is also used in the culture of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Middlebrook 7H9 broth. It is also used as an emulsifier in the estrogen-regulating drug Estrasorb.
