Swine flu vaccinations (H1N1 vaccines)
The new pandemic vaccines against H1N1 contain very problematic materials such as thimerosal and squalen.
Thimerosal is a mercury compound which is used to conserve vaccines as it is already effective in very small doses. Thimerosal has a strong neurotoxic effect, i.e. it can damage the nervous system. Thimerosal is particularly problematic during the embryonic and fetal phase and during the first years after the child is born. Thimerosal is suspected of triggering autism, Asperger Syndrome and other neurological developmental complications.
The only lapidary comment the European Medication Agency provided was that there is no connection between neurological developmental complications and thiomersal in vaccines. However, the development of mercury free vaccines should be pursued, also for ecological reasons. EMEA emphasized that the advantage of vaccinations far outweighs the theoretical risks of thimerosal.
Thiomersal was banned as a hand disinfection agent decades ago due to its neurotoxicity, but ist use in vaccines poses no danger, according to EMEA ?
Part of the swine flu vaccines also contain thimerosal. This is the target group of the vaccination:
- Medical staff
- Pregnant women!!!
- Babies older than 6 months who have chronic diseases
- Healthy adults between the ages of 15 and 49
- Healthy children
- Healthy adults between the ages of 50 and 64
- Healthy adults older than 65
Primarily pregnant women and babies will be especially affected by the neurotoxic effect of thimerosal.
Mercury from thimerosal is metabolized in ethyl mercury and even though the half life of ethyl mercury is 7-10 days and thus relatively short, mercury that has penetrated the brain is virtually impossible to remove again.
Because humans ingest mercury through the food chain – mainly consumption of fish – in terms of the imperative to minimize it is even more important that vaccines do not add toxic and carcinogenic mercury.

Squalen is a new kind of compound which is used in Novartis’s and GlaxoSmithKline’s H1N1 vaccines to increase the effect. Squalen magnifies the immune response and at the same time reduces the amount of the viral antigen which is required for the vaccination. It makes it possible to produce more vaccines. The name Novartis uses for the additive is MF59, Glaxo refers to it as AS03.
Squalene and animal experiments
A trial published in 2000 in the American Journal of Pathology showed that one single injection of Squalene in rats caused chronic inflammation of the joints in rats, also referred to as rheumatoid arthritis. (Carlson, B.C. et al.: The endogenous adjuvant squalene can induce a chronic T-cell mediated arthritis in rats. American Journal of Pathology 2000, 156: 2057- 2065 )
Squalene in humans
Squalene is an interim product in the biosynthesis of cholesterol and appears mainly in the nerve system and in the brain in the human organism. Injecting Squalene into the body sometimes triggers an auto immunological reaction, whereby the immune system recognizes squalene, which is produced naturally in the body, as being “foreign“ matter, and destroys it. In the meantime research on auto-immune processes treats it as a given that hydrocarbon, as also represented by squalene, can result in an increased antibody formation of the B-lymphocyte system and also to a greater immune reaction of the T-cell system. (O'Hagan D.T.: MF59 is a safe and potent vaccine adjuvant that enhances protection against influenza virus infection. Expert Rev Vaccines. 2007 Oct;6(5):699-710.). These uncontrollable immune responses conceal an immense danger of auto-immunity and thus of auto-immune diseases (M. Satoh et.al.: Induction of lupus autoantibodies by adjuvants. J Autoimmun. 2003 Aug;21(1):1-9.).
The assumption is that the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS)) was caused by an anthrax vaccine which contained Squalene (MF 59). In 100% of GWS patients who were vaccinated for the first Gulf war one finds antibodies against squalene. Gulf war veterans who did not show any symptoms of GWS also do not have any antibodies (0%) against squalene. (Pamela B. Asa,1 Yan Cao, and Robert F. Garry:Antibodies to Squalene in Gulf War Syndrome Experimental and Molecular Pathology 68, 55–64 (2000)doi:10.1006/exmp.1999.2295)
GWS symptoms include the following: fatigue, rashes, headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, swelling of the lymph nodes, diarrhea, loss of memory, auto-immune diseases and neurological diseases.
Furthermore in this context it is more than alarming that the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis was significantly higher in military personnel that had participated in the Gulf war and for this reason had received multiple vaccinations with squalene. (Horner, R.D. et al.: Occurrence of amyotrophic lateral sklerosis among Gulf war veterans. Neurology, 2003 Sep 23;61(6):742-9.)
You can find yet another confirmation in the manual "Infection and Autoimmunity" (Yehuda Shoenfeld and Noel R. Rose (Ed): Infection and Autoimmunity. Elsevier 2005, ISBN: 978-0-444-51271-0) on page 87 "Induction of Autoimmunity by Adjuvant Hydrocarbons" by K.M. Kelly et.al.(Kelly, K.M., et.al.: Induction of Autoimmunity by Adjuvant Hydrocarbons in: Yehuda Shoenfeld and Noel R. Rose (Ed): Infection and Autoimmunity. , Elsevier 2005, ISBN: 978-0-444-51271-0 pp.87-104 ):
More recently, it has become clear that other hydrocarbons, notably the mineral oil Bayol F and the endogenous hydrocarbon Squalen, also can induce lupus-like disease in mice. ... The induction of murine lupus by immunological adjuvants is significant for two reasons. First, it provides a model for the interaction of environmental triggers with the genetic background in systemic autoimmunity and secondly, it raises the possibility that adjuvant hydrocarbons might trigger autoimmune disease in susceptible humans.
What is interesting in this context is to what extent auto-immune diseases occurred in the 39,000 recipients of the vaccine FLUAD which contains Squalen. However, there has never been a follow-up study (which is, perhaps, no coincidence).
