[SaneVax: More than 20 countries around the globe have restricted or banned genetically modified food due to concerns over potential health risks. Why does this concern not extend to genetically modified vaccines? Is it any safer to inject genetically modified compounds than it is to eat them? Despite questions from scientists, medical professionals and consumer advocates, national health authorities refuse to provide documented proof that injecting genetically modified compounds is safe. The solution? Call your elected officials – demand that they force the FDA/CDC to either produce the proof – or remove the offending vaccines until proof of safety is established.]
Toxic Vaccines? CBCD Sends Letter to FDA & CDC on Foreign DNA Fragments in Gardasil and MMR
From CBCD press release
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2012
In a letter sent by the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD), the Center urges the FDA and CDC to investigate the risk associated with foreign DNA fragments in vaccines such as Gardasil and the MMR II and set clear guidelines that will mitigate this risk.
In the letter, the CBCD quoted a news story from CBS News, which declared, “Parents who send their children to private schools in California are much more likely to opt out of immunizations than their public school counterparts.” 
That article went on to note that public health officials are troubled by the fact that the rate of children entering private schools without all of their shots jumped by 10 percent last year. The fact of the matter is that parents are growing more and more concerned that the FDA is allowing certain pharmaceutical giants to play games with the health of their children.
Note the issue of Gardasil.
In its letter, the CBCD mentioned that the FDA knew that Merck’s vaccine contains foreign DNA fragments.
In fact, the FDA says on its website. “Since the early development of Gardasil, FDA and the manufacturer (Merck and Co., Inc.) have known that after purification of the vaccine, small quantities of residual recombinant HPV L1-specific DNA fragments remain in the vaccine. … The presence of DNA fragments is expected in Gardasil … these are not contaminants … The presence of these DNA fragments is expected, is not a risk to vaccine recipients, and is not a safety factor.” 
Gardasil is just one example of a vaccine that contains foreign DNA fragments.
