- Nov 2, 2002Some info on what's in the flu vaccine:
"But that shot at your doctor's office contains much more than
just flu strains. The vaccine is prepared with chicken embryo
fluid, inoculated with the living flu strains. The fluid is then
treated with formaldehyde to inactivate the virus. Thimerosal,
a mercury derivative, is injected to help preserve the mixture.
Ethylene glycol (better known as antifreeze) and another chemical
called phenol are added to disinfect. And because animal cells
are used for this process, animal viruses are sometimes introduced
into the vaccine, undetected. This has happened as recently as 1995.
Now ask yourself: If you were intending to purchase a dietary
supplement, and the label offered this warning: "May contain
traces of formaldehyde, thimerosal, phenol, ethylene glycol,
and animal cells," would you buy it?
