What’s Really in the DTaP?

What’s Really in the DTaP?

DTaP (Daptacel)
aluminum phosphate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, 2-Phenoxyethanol,
Stainer-Scholte medium, modified Mueller’s growth medium, modified
Mueller-Miller casamino acid medium (without beef heart infusion),
dimethyl 1-beta-cyclodextrin, ammonium sulfate

The Material Safety Data Sheet for polysorbate 80 says it “may cause adverse reproductive effects.”  I’m sure the 12% of women in this country who struggle with infertility have something to say about that, along with every woman who has suffered ovarian failure and early menopause after the Gardasil vaccine.

Material Safety Data Sheet – POLYSORBATE 80 MSDS

Formaldehyde: usually formaldehyde is used as a resin, like for holding cheap-ass particle board furniture together. In vaccines it’s used to kill antigens to inactivate them. In 2011 the National Toxicology Program declared formaldehyde to be a known human carcinogen.

Material Safety Data Sheet – Ammonium sulfate MSDS
Section 3: Hazards Identification
Potential Acute Health Effects:
Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation.
Potential Chronic Health Effects:
DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. Repeated or prolonged exposure is not known to aggravate medical condition.
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.
Section 11: Toxicological Information
Other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation.
Special Remarks on Toxicity to Animals:
Lowest Published Lethal Dose/Conc: LDL [Domestic animal – Goat, Sheep) – Route: Oral; Dose: 3500 mg/kg
Special Remarks on Chronic Effects on Humans:
It may be a possible mutagen. It has been tested for mutagenicity, but so far tests have been inconclusive or test information
has not been made available.
Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: Causes skin irritation. Eyes: Causes eye irritation. Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract
irritation. Ingestion: When ingested, its osmolarity can draw water from the body into the bowel, acting as a laxative. However,
if enough is absorbed systemically it may produce Ammonia poisoning. Symptoms may include gastrointestinal (digestive)
tract irritation with nausea, vomiting, hypermotility, diarrhea. May also affect eyes (Mydriasis), behavior/central nervous system
(somnolence, tremor, convulsions, muscle contraction or spasticity), and respiratory system (respiratory stimulation, dyspnea).
Also, with ingestion of large doses of Ammonium Sulfate arises the possibility of sufficient absorption to produce diuresis, an
excessive discharge of urine, and kidney damage (renal tubular disorder, abnormal renal function). Chronic Potential Health
Effects: One Russian occupational standard study discussed chronic exposure effects which may include cardiac contraction,
neurotoxicity, and hypertension. This has not been confirmed in other ammonium sulfate exposed workers.
