Hepatitis B vaccine in babies and developmental disabilities and arthritis: the HB virus is primarily transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person or by injections with contaminated material (drug using) and poses no risk to infants unless the mother is a carrier. Studies on boys between 0–9 years who received a complete triple series of HB vaccine were found to have more developmental disabilities, and those aged 3–17 years who received HB vaccination during the first month had a 3-times greater risk of ASD than unvaccinated boys. HB has also been linked to several types of arthritis.
Vaccines and diabetes: There is also a suggestion and well established evidence that vaccines create appearance of diabetes in children. Immune stimulation would lead to destruction of pancreas cells producing insulin.
Vaccines and cancer: a type of virus called Simian (SV40) that once was exclusive to monkeys, began showing up in human polio vaccines in 1960. "Because SV40 was not discovered until 1960, no one was aware in the 1950s that polio vaccine could be contaminated," the Center for Disease Ccontrol website explained.
“Soon after its discovery in 1960, SV40 was identified in polio vaccine. It was found in the injected form of the vaccine (IPV). The existing polio vaccine stocks were used until 1963," in the U.S., UK, Australia and the former Soviet Union. The Soviet polio vaccine may even have been contaminated after 1963 - possibly up to the early 1980s, "The vaccine was almost certainly used throughout the Soviet bloc and probably exported to China, Japan and several countries in Africa. That means hundreds of millions could have been exposed to SV40 after 1963," the CDC report said.
Some studies have found SV40 in certain forms of cancer in humans, such as tumors located in the lungs, brain and bone tumors and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Flu vaccines and myopathies. One of the most common ones, Fluval, has a notice it the packaging stating: "There have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Flulaval," and "Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children", or "Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility."
Cases of inflammatory myopathies, also associated with interstitial lung disease, followed the vaccinations of at least H1N1 plus the seasonal trivalent influenza.
What about mercury and vaccines? Mercury in the form of Thimerosal (or Thiomersal), an organic mercury compound used as a preservative in vaccines, has been retracted (almost) completely for fears of causes of neural damage. “In 1999 it was agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure. Today, all routinely recommended pediatric vaccines in the US contain no thimerosal or only trace amounts”(RxList 2014), however some formulations of the inactivated influenza vaccine for children that are older than two years do contain Thimerosal.
