The Ultimate Gamble: Do Childhood Vaccines Result in Genetic Hybridization from Alien Human and Animal DNA Contents?
Genetic Exchanges in the World around Us
Barbara McClintock, the 1983 Nobel laureate “Corn Lady,” was the first to discover genetic mobility in the so-called jumping genes in the 1930s. For over 50 years she pursued solitary research with corn, uncovering some of nature’s innermost secrets about life.
McClintock studied maize, a form of Indian corn where distribution of red Indian corn, where distribution of red kernels and yellow kernels is genetically determined. What she perceived was that some of the genes were moving from one place to another on the cell’s chromosomes (the floating threads on which genes are lined up like beads on a string). Then she saw patterns in the movements, with sharply differing results in the colored kernels, and realized that some genes, once moved into position, switched other genes on or off. It followed that, while most genes were workers, others were controllers or managers of genes. 
According to an article in World Medicine, 1971, (2) scientists at the University of Geneva made the startling discovery that biological substances entering directly into the blood stream may truly become a part of us and even a part of our genetic material. The article stated in part:
When Japanese bacteriologists discovered that bacteria of one species transferred their own highly specific antibiotic resistance to bacteria of an entirely different species, they seemed to hit on a unique if not startling phenomenon. Dr. Maurice Stroun and Dr. Philippe Anker, with colleagues in the Department of Plant Physiology at the University of Geneva, have now accumulated a wealth of evidence that the transfer of genetic information is not confined to bacteria but also can occur between bacteria and higher plants and animals.
“The Geneva scientists are convinced that normal animal and plant cells also shed DNA and that this DNA is also taken up by other cells in the organism. If they are right, the consequences to virtually every aspect of a cell’s metabolism would be considerable. The growth and development, diseases, and even the evolution of an organism would be affected. 
“Dr. Stroun and his colleagues did most of their research on plants but have now turned to animals. In their latest set of experiments they used the isolated auricles of frogs’ hearts. 
There is no question about the results. They found a high percentage of RNA-DNA (ribonucleic-deoxyribonucleic) hybridization between bacterial DNA extracted from bacteria of the same species as that used in the experiment and titrated RNA extracted from auricles which has been dipped in the bacterial suspension. (DNA, the characteristic nucleic acid of the nucleus in all cells, is the fundamental substance which carries the genetic code within the cells of the body).
“Since we know that no bacteria got into the frog auricles, we can only conclude that the bacterial DNA must have been exuded from the bacteria and absorbed by the animal cells,” says Stroun.
“This transfer phenomenon, or transcession, as Dr. Anker called it, is very probably a general one, otherwise, he and Dr. Stroun would hardly have succeeded first go, in getting bacterial RNA synthesized by animal tissues…
“The implications of this work on transcession are enormous, for the Geneva work suggests that this phenomenon is going on the whole time – even in our own bodies…Could, for example, the heart damage that can follow after rheumatic fever and similar bacterial infections be the result of the body’s immunological system reacting to its own cells producing an alien RNA?” 
As purely genetic material, it would be expected that viruses are more prone to the process of “jumping genes” than other microorganisms. The following publication tends to support this hypothesis: In a study of 24 passages of a nuclear polyhedrosis virus through cell cultures, there were both insertions and deletions in the virus, appearing to suggest that the virus both donated genetic material to and received genetic material from the cells in which it was cultured, therefore suggesting that similar viral exchanges take place in the human system.
As another possible complication of viral infections (presumably also viral vaccines), similarities have been found between certain viral proteins and proteins related to myelin sheaths of the brain and nervous system. As a result of this protein mimicry between viral proteins and homologous areas of the nervous system, immunological cross reactions may take place resulting in post-infectious or post-vaccinal encephalitis, myelitis, or neuritis. These viruses include measles, Epstein-Barr, influenza A and B, and others causing upper respiratory infections.
Following this line of thought one step further, in an article entitled, “Vaccination and autoimmunity -‘vaccinosis’: a dangerous liaison?,” the authors pointed to the potential problem of “molecular mimicry” in vaccines, in which a structural similarity existing between some viral antigen and a self-antigen could, by bringing about a slight modification of the antigenic character of tissues, cause it to appear foreign to the immune system and thus a fair target for antibody production and potential autoimmunity. 
The Work of Howard B Urnovitz
Urnovitz and his colleagues have been studying the implications of vaccines in cancer, Persian Gulf War Syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and AIDS. Urnovitz, who holds doctorates in Immunology and Microbiology from the University of Michigan where he studied vaccines, has become one of the most vocal proponents for scientists to become aware of vaccine-associated genetic mutations. 
His work in this area has supported the concepts that:
- Our bodies have a “genetic memory” of foreign substances it encounters, including vaccines.
- There is a limit on how much foreign material our bodies can handle before genetic damage occurs and/or progresses into a chronic illness.
- Each person has their own unique genetic blueprint which responds to foreign substances differently.
Comment: Although Urnovitz did not elaborate further on the subject of “genetic memory,” his reference to it can be interpreted as an inference that the genetic blueprints we inherit from our parents are influenced and potentially changed in adaptation to environmental exposures throughout our lifetimes.
Perhaps Urnovitz and colleagues are best known for the work they have published on the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), where they found evidence of genetic alterations in human chromosome 22q11.2, a known genetic “hot spot” for mutations, which appear to have a role in the pathogenesis of GWS. . Evenmore striking is that when they sequenced their findings, many enteroviral–similar segments were found suggesting that this may have played a role in causing the changes in 22q11.2. Most Gulf War veterans received the oral polio virus vaccine, which is an enterovirus. Since the polio vaccine was originally cultured in monkey kidneys, known to be contaminated with simian (monkey) cytomegalic virus (CMV), the veterans would have also received the CMV contaminant.
Increasing Incidence of Childhood Autism and Related disorders
In a sense, modern America might be likened onto a tree on which the leaves remain green even while the roots are dying, the roots of course referring to the ominous physical and mental health trends taking place among American children, with one-in-six children being afflicted with a developmental disorder (autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, allergies, and asthma. [9-10] It is questionable whether any nation or society can long continue to thrive or even survive with the current rate of health attrition taking place among our children, unless it is reversed.
Ongoing Mass (Herd) Immunizations – Are They Necessary?
Vaccine proponents would have us believe that mass vaccine programs have been largely responsible for controlling virtually all of the former epidemics of killer childhood diseases in industrial nations. In my opinion, with the possible exception of the polio vaccine, the facts do not bear this out. According to the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious disease in the U.S.A. were diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), scarlet fever, and measles. Yet, by 1945 the combined death rates from these four causes had declined by 95 percent, before implementation of mass vaccine programs . Other sources provide much the same information [12-14].
Furthermore, according to a report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, July 30, 1999, improvements in sanitation, water quality, hygiene, and the introduction of antibiotics have been the most important factors in control of infectious disease in the past century. Although vaccines were mentioned, they were not included among the major factors 
Five Autism-Free Zones in a Sea of Autism, Showing Indisputable Epidemiologic Evidence of a Vaccine-Autism Causal Relationship.
A telephone survey commissioned by the nonprofit group Generation Rescue compared vaccinated with unvaccinated boys in nine counties of Oregon and California . The survey included nearly 12,000 households with children ranging in ages from 4 to 17 years, including more than 17,000 boys among whom 991 were described as completely unvaccinated. In the 4 to 11 year bracket, the survey found that, compared with unvaccinated boys, vaccinated boys were 155% more likely to have a neurological disorder, 224% more likely to have ADHD, and 61% more likely to have autism. For the older boys in the 11-17 year bracket, the results were even more pronounced with 158% more likely to have a neurological disorder, 317% more likely to have ADHD, and with 112% more likely to have autism. 
In addition to the Generation Rescue Survey, there are three autism-free oases in the United States. Most publicized are Amish communities, mainly studied in Ohio and Pennsylvania .The Amish are unique in their living styles in largely self-sustaining communities. They grow their own food. Although they have no specific prohibitions against medical care, very rarely do they vaccinate their children. In local medical centers available to the Amish, most centers reported that they had never seen an Amish autistic child. The only Amish children that were seen as a rule were those with congenital disorders such as fragile X. The one autistic Amish child that was discovered during the surveys was taken to a medical office for an ear infection where the child was incidentally vaccinated, probably without the mother’s consent.
The second is the Florida-based medical practice of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet. While treating several thousand autistic children in his practice, Bradstreet has observed that “there is virtually no autism in home-schooling families who decline to vaccinate for religious reasons” 
The third, the “Homefirst Health Services” located in Chicago, has a virtual absence of autism among the several thousand patients that were delivered at home by the medical practice, and remained non-vaccinated according to the wishes of the parents .
Clusters of autistic children have also been found among parents with occupational exposures to chemicals prior to conception , and in children exposed prenatally to organochlorine pesticides .
For those who have not already investigated vaccine contents, the following adjuvants and ingredients have been documented:
- Acetone (solvent used in fingernail polish remover)
- Aluminum hydroxide
- Aluminum phosphate
- Aluminum sulfate
- Amphotericin B
- Animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
- Dog kidney, monkey kidney
- Chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg
- Calf (bovine) serum
- Fetal bovine serum
- Human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
- Hydrolyzed gelatin
- Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
- Neomycin (antibiotic)
- Neomycin sulfate
- Phenol red indicator
- phenoxyethanol (antifreeze)
- potassium diphosphate
- potassium monophosphate
- polymyxin B
- polysorbate 20
- polysorbate 80
- porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
- residual MRC5 proteins
- streptomycin (antibiotic)
- thimerosal (mercury)
- tri(n)butylphosphate (neurotoxin)
- VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells
- Washed sheep red blood cells
Aluminum, a neurotoxin, is associated with Alzheimer’s disease and seizures.
Formaldehyde is a known cancer-causing agent commonly used to embalm corpses.
Glycerin, a tri-atomic alcohol extracted from natural fats which are putrified and decomposed, has known toxic effects including kidney, liver, and lung damage, dieresis, pronounced local tissue damage, gastrointestinal damage, death.
Neomycin and streptomycin (antibiotics) are known to case allergic reactions.
Phenol (carbolic acid is a deadly poison, a common disinfectant and dye.)
Phenyethanol is known to depress the central nervous system and may cause vomiting and diarrhea. (FDA)
Thimerosal (a mercury derivative) is a toxic heavy metal that is not easily eliminated from the body. Metal toxicity can result in brain injury and autoimmune disease.
Oil adjuvants are known to cause hypersensitivity reactions, cysts, and adjuvant arthritis.
In 2000, Congress strongly recommended that the pharmaceutical companies take the thimerosal out of vaccines (It was not mandated, simply recommended). The drug companies were not told to take the existing lots off the market. The recommendation only applied to new product lines…
Consumer goods are recalled, redesigned, or required to display warning danger labels when they contain toxic ingredients or cause accidents. When cancer causing agents are found in foods, the foods are often banned and/or a warning label must be displayed on the packages. Vaccines have a different (much lower) standard for safety.

Combinations of Toxic Chemicals Bring Exponential Increases in Toxicity
It is universally recognized among toxicologists that combinations of toxic chemicals may bring exponential increases in toxicity; that is, two toxic chemicals in combination will bring a ten-fold or even a hundred-fold increase in toxicity. [21-24]
A classical example of this principle was the Schubert study  in which it was found that the amount of lead and the amount of mercury, when each was given separately, would be lethal for one percent of rats tested, would become lethal for one hundred percent of rats tested when combined.
In vaccines this principle would apply at least to mercury and aluminum, both of which are potent neurotoxins.
Vaccines and Subdural (Brain) Hemorrhages
The best evidence to date on this issue comes from the observations of ophthalmologist Horace Gardner who, based on an article from a Japanese neurosurgeon reporting that clusters of nontraumatic brain hemorrhages tended to occur around ages 7 to 10 months in Japan , Gardner astutely noted that there was a distinct age difference between nontraumatic brain hemorrhages in Japan and in the United States of America, where most nontraumatic brain hemorrhages tend to occur during the first six months of life.
The explanation, according to Dr. Gardner, was that Japanese do not begin their childhood vaccine programs until seven months, whereas in the United States they are administered during the first six months, starting within 24 hours of birth with the Hepatitis B vaccine: . In essence these observations can potentially be transformed into a gargantuan epidemiologic study involving the childhood populations of Japan and the United States that, by present indications, could prove beyond a doubt that vaccines are the primary cause of subdural hemorrhages now being misdiagnosed as SBS, NAI, and others.
Study Shows Link between Numbers of Vaccines Administered and Infant Mortality Rates (IMRs)
The study entitled Infant mortality rates regressed against number of vaccine doses routinely given. Is there a biochemical or synergistic toxicity? was conducted by Neil Z. Miller and Gary S. Goldman and published in the reputable Human and Experimental Toxicology Journal, which is indexed by the Nat’l Library of Medicine. 
This shocking new study published in a prestigious medical journal has found a direct statistical link between higher vaccine doses and infant mortality rates in the developed world, suggesting that the increasing number of inoculations being forced upon children by medical authorities, particularly in the United States which administers the highest number of vaccines and also has the highest number of infant deaths is, in fact, having an over-all detrimental impact on health.
Why the MMR Vaccine-Autism Relationship?
A number of years ago at an Autism Research Institute (ARI) conference, the founding director of the institute, Dr. Bernard Rimland, announced that approximately two thirds of families bringing their autistic children to ARI referral doctors reported that the child had become autistic following the MMR vaccine. After returning home and electronically checking medical records, the writer of these lines found the same MMR-autism relationship in his own patients.
Dr. Hanan Polansky from the Center for the Biology of chronic Disease (CBCD), author of the highly acclaimed book entitled, Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and Chronic Disease, explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases without damaging (mutating) the human DNA. Part of the explanation may also be in the fact that viruses are inherently immunosuppressive in contrast to bacterial infections, which stimulate the immune system, as reflected by the fact that viral infections tend to lower white blood cell counts in contrast to bacterial infections which raise white blood cell counts. The measles virus is especially potent in this regard, being powerfully suppressive to cellular immunity. [28-30] This powerful MMR (viral) immuno-suppression, along with toxic effects of mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde, in effect paralyzes the body’s own immune defenses, thus allowing genetic hybridization to take place.
It has been demonstrated that a sharp and persisting rise in childhood autism commenced following the 1978 introduction of the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella) in the U.S.A,  a time when mercury-laced Hepatitis B and Hemophilus influenza type b vaccines were also introduced. In a bulletin sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, January, 2004 entitled AUTISM A.L.A.R.M., it was announced that 1 in 6 American children were diagnosed with a learning disability and/or significant behavioral disorder. As described and documented by Dr. Kenneth Bock, approximately one-third of America’s children are afflicted by the 4-A disorders: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, Allergies.  It is entirely possible or even probable, based on present knowledge, that each of these conditions is associated with underlying genetic changes.
Of all the benefits provided by God and nature for the human species, human genetics must be considered the greatest and most indispensable. Are we a nation of people incapable of recognizing imminent danger signs in the health, welfare, and genetics of our children, and in recognizing these dangers to take corrective actions in their behalf? I think we are capable of taking such actions, but time may be running out. At some unknown future time this process will reach a point-of-no-return in terms of vaccine-induced genetic hybridization that will become incompatible with human reproduction. Mass extinctions are already taking place in plant and animal species, largely due to human encroachments and interventions.  Are we soon to follow suit? [34-36]
