3 Filthy Truths About Vaccines and Cancer

Vaccines have not been tested for causing cancer.

Parents, if biological material was used to create a vaccine and it caused cancer when injected into hamsters, would you want that vaccine injected into your child?

Of course not!

But, that is exactly what happened to over 98 million Americans – and likely many more! Let me explain.

In the 1950s the poliovirus was cultured on monkey kidney cells to produce polio and adenovirus vaccines. A cancer-causing virus called SV40 was discovered, however, that fact was covered up and silenced.

That is important because, to my knowledge, that congressional information hasn’t been made available to the general public until now. I’m making available some snippets of the cover-up and its relevance to you, especially if you received a polio vaccine during the 1950s and ‘60s. Before that information is revealed, you must know…


Filthy Truth #1 – Vaccines are NOT Tested for Cancer-Causing Capabilities

Parents want peace of mind. They want to know their children are safe, and they want to trust their doctors. But, more parents are doing the opposite. Why?

I suspect that many parents are getting savvy to the potential inherent problems in vaccines. They’re educating themselves more on vaccine adverse reactions. Most parents know a child or have a friend with a child on the autistic spectrum. Here’s a relevant example.

We’ve all gone grocery shopping.

You know if you look at the product label, you get a general idea of what is contained in the product. That is how you find most of the nasty ingredients in processed foods. Vaccines are not quite the same, plus there’s a deceptive catch.

By law, doctors only have to give parents the vaccine information sheets. Parents, you want to request, read, and keep the vaccine product inserts! You can find them located here: http://vactruth.com/vaccine-inserts/

Do a search for the term “carcinogenesis,” literally ‘cancer creation’, on the product insert for any vaccine. You’ll see the following common phrase regarding most vaccines, “This vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility.” (Emphasis mine)

Personally, this should be the legal loophole at law for parents exempting their children from vaccinations. If a product manufacturer cannot guarantee that a product won’t make a person infertile, cause cancer or malformations, then parents have every right to protect themselves and their children from such life-long risks.

Can you imagine the horrified look on parents’ faces when they discover vaccines haven’t been tested for cancer causing capabilities? Maybe parents would ask more demanding questions and require better explanations from their pediatricians.


Filthy Truth #2 – Cancer Virus Contaminates Vaccine

Vaccines were never as safe as moms and dads were—or are—led to believe!

Here’s why.

In order to make the vaccine in the 1950s, the poliovirus was cultured on monkey kidney cells. Researchers discovered the cells were contaminated with a virus called SV40.

Contamination of vaccines became so well known in scientific circles, ‘radical vaccine enthusiast’ and vaccine patent holder Dr. Paul Offit reluctantly admits,

The polio vaccine used in the late 1950s and early 1960s was contaminated with a monkey virus called simian virus 40 (SV40) present in monkey kidney cells used to grow the vaccine. Recently, investigators found SV40 DNA in biopsy specimens obtained from patients with cancers such as mesothelioma (lung), osteosarcoma (bone) and non-Hodgkins lymphoma (lymph nodes)… Taken together, these findings do not support the hypothesis that SV40 virus contained in polio vaccines administered before 1963 cause cancers. In addition, available evidence suggests that SV40 virus is likely be transmitted to people by a mechanism other than vaccines.” http://www.chop.edu/service/vaccine-education-center/hot-topics/sv40.html

Dr. Offit also forgot to mention SV40 infections also are found in the brain of autistic children. Hmmmm. Read about it here: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/13550281003685839

There is very good reason for people like Dr. Paul Offit to downplay the contamination of vaccines.

Bernice Eddy, who at the time was a scientist at the Division of Biologics Standards (DBS), discovered a major problem. Page 500 of the Executive Reorganization and Government Research of the Committee on Government Operations United States Senate, Ninety-Second Congress, Second Session. April 20, 21; and May 3, 4, 1972, states,

“The next and only serious vaccine crisis that has occurred since the polio episode was the realization in mid-1961 that a monkey virus later shown to cause tumors in hamsters was contaminating both polio and adenovirus vaccines. The virus, known as SV40, was entering the vaccines and, just as in the polio case was surviving the formalin [form of formaldehyde] treatment.

There were several states by which the full extent of the SV40 problem became known. First was the discovery in 1959-1960 by a DBS [Division of Biologics Standards] scientist, once again Bernice Eddy, that an unknown agent in the monkey kidney cells used to produce polio and adenovirus vaccines would cause tumors when the cells were injected into hamsters.” (Emphasis mine)

How does the above information play with your—or anyone’s—sense of integrity? What about trusting federal health agencies, their research, and data? What will be revealed next is shocking.


Filthy Truth #3 – Contamination is Hidden from Parents

In my opinion what happened next is borderline criminal: The information was suppressed.

Rather than admitting to the problem and taking measures to correct it, those in high places of science and trust allowed contaminated vaccines to be injected into millions of unwitting and helpless women and children.

Page 502 of the same congressional document states,

“In 1954 Eddy, as a polio control officer, found live virus in supposedly killed polio vaccine; in 1955 she was relieved of her duties as polio control officer…After her discoveries concerning the SV40 virus, her staff and animal space were reduced and she was demoted from head of a section to head of a unit.”

Page 505,

“…even when the contaminating virus was found to be oncogenic [cancer causing] in hamsters, the DBS [Division of Biologics Standards] and its expert advisory committee decided to leave existing stocks on the market rather than risk eroding public confidence by a recall.” (Emphasis mine)


“There has been a tendency on the part of certain higher government circles to play down any open discussion of problems associated with vaccines…”

Government officials knew parents definitely would reconsider injecting biological agents, especially vaccines, into their children so they perpetrated a BIG lie that became buried in the annals of vaccine history, which they probably thought they could hide forever. Unfortunately, the SV40 cover-up may not be the only ‘sleeping dog’ story in vaccinology. There just may be some interesting factual stories regarding how some influenza strains either came into being or became so potent.



I think parents want one thing: Assurance of scientific information to have peace of mind. They want to know their children are safe—and they want to trust their doctors, especially pediatricians. But, more parents are doing the opposite. Why? I suspect many parents not only are getting savvy to the potential problems with vaccines, but also know of serious health problems from children of neighbors and friends who suffer adverse vaccine reactions, which scares them.

Parents definitely ought to look at vaccines with a skeptical eye. They must read and keep the vaccine product inserts. If you’re not comfortable getting your child vaccinated, exempt your child. You have every legal right to do that.

Given the unethical happenings surrounding some of the above information, I suspect that it just may be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all vaccines and carcinogenicity.
