Definite Mad Cow Risk
From Vaccines

Informed Choice Magazine

"We have a protect the vaccine system in this country." - FDA Committee
Eating meat from infected cows is not the only, or even the most likely way of contracting the human form of Mad Cow Disease (vCJD). It has been known for some time that an even greater risk to humans is posed by the injection of vaccines containing brain and nerve tissue derived from infected cattle - products which are contained in many childhood and adult vaccines.
Despite the fact that alternatives are available, bovine material which may be contaiminated with the prions known to cause BSE in cattle and vCJD in humans, continues to be used in the production of vaccines administered to American children and adults every day.
This risk has been accepted since the late 1980's. In February 1988, The Southwood committee, charged by the British government with investigating the potential for transmission of Mad Cow disease from cows to humans issued a report stating that. "The greatest risk ... would be from parenteral injection of material derived from bovine brain or lymphoid tissue. Medicinal products for injection which are prepared from bovine tissues... might also be capable of transmitting infectious agents."
Many drug companies have claimed that this material was safe because it was sourced from American herds which were free of BSE (though it is known that many vaccine seed-stocks and gelatines actually come from British herds and were sourced in the mid-1980's - the time of greatest risk). We now know that this is not the case and millions of American children and adults may have been placed at risk of death, not only from eating infected meat products, but from the very vaccines which were meant to keep them healthy.
An FDA Committee which met to discuss the issue of potential risk of BSE from vaccines actually talked about revealing the risks to parents and decided that, "We have a protect the vaccine system in this country."
Read the report:
"With an incubation period before symptoms emerge of between 20 and 40 years and a prognosis of almost certain death from prolonged and terrible neurological symptoms, it is essential that we err on the side of caution," states Meryl Dorey, editor of the Australian health magazine, Informed Choice. "Many of the most commonly prescribed medications in use today (such as insulins and many hormone-based drugs) and almost all injected and oral vaccines contain bovine products which have the potential to spread this deadly disease to our children. Parents need to be made aware of this risk and pharmaceutical companies must immediately withdraw all products which contain this material. The FDA does not have a duty to 'protect the vaccine system' as stated above. Rather, they have a sacred duty of care to protect the citizens of this land and to ensure that the drugs and vaccines which they use are as safe and pure as possible."
