According to the organization ‘Children & Asthma in America’ there are at least 7 million children in the USA who suffer from the debilitating illness asthma. After carrying out a landmark survey researching the current state of asthma and asthma management among children in the United States, ‘Children & Asthma in America’ revealed that a massive 1 in 10 children suffer from the disease.

Many people are unaware that certain childhood vaccines contain yeast. Yeast is a substance which can cause breathing problems and asthma in any child who as a yeast allergy. One of the vaccines containing yeast is the Hib vaccine which is said to protect a child from Haemophilus Influenzae type B infection. This is a serious bacterial infection that can cause meningitis, pneumonia, swelling of the throat and other disease complications, Another vaccine containing yeast is the Hep B vaccine which is said to protect a child from the Hepatitis type B infection. Hepatitis B can cause inflammation (swelling) of the liver and significant liver damage. The first Hep B vaccine is given to babies in the USA at birth and the first Hib vaccine at 8 weeks.
Pharmacist Heidi White wrote a paper in 1999 linking the Hib vaccination to asthma. She explained how different studies in rats, mice, and guinea pigs supported this. She wrote:
“A nasal Hib vaccine has been shown to stimulate Th1 and Th2 cells in mice. If the Th2 side of the immune system is over stimulated, then this can increase the risk of asthma and allergy.”

She finished her article by adding that at that time no human studies had been carried out to support her theory.
