Formaldehyde is finally listed as cancer-causing by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in its 12th Report on Carcinogens, which includes 240 listings.

This report neglects to mention 30 vaccines that contain formaldehyde, ranging from DTaP (diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis), DT (diphtheria-tetanus), and influenza (flu) to Hib (haemophilus B), HepA&B (hepatitis A&B), IPV (inactivated polio) and meningococcal.

Is formaldehyde the reason many vaccine package inserts state:

* no studies on cancer-causing potential;

* no evaluation for cancer-causing


* no animal reproduction studies?

Scientific expertise for the Report on Carcinogens came from Centers for Disease Control, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

For our children’s sake, could government scientists assess the safety of all vaccine ingredients like aluminum, fetal bovine serum, monosodium glutamate (MSG), phenol, sucrose, thimerosal (49.6 percent mercury) and yeast?

Parents deserve safety research of each vaccine ingredient, singly, combined in one vaccine and cumulatively in nine possible injected vaccines.

Could questionable ingredients, like formaldehyde, be the reason 11,938 (67.36 percent) of Oak Parkers voted for full vaccine ingredient disclosure in the Nov. 2, 2010 advisory referendum?
