Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret
According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your
children should be the first target for mass swine
flu vaccinations when school starts this fall.[i]
This is a
ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to
mention extremely high risk.
Australia, where the winter season has begun,
Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring
parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than
regular seasonal flu. "Most people, including
children, will experience very mild symptoms and
recover without any medical intervention," she said.[ii]
Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy
predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as
many children in the coming year as regular
influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die
from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six
regular flu deaths seen among children in an average
year in Australia.[iii]
the Disease, Kill the Patient”
than 100 children in the U.S. die each year from
seasonal flu viruses.[iv]
If we use Australia’s math, a very rough estimate
would be another 100 children could potentially die
of swine flu in the United States in the coming
children are the first target group in the U.S. per
Sebelius, that means we’re about to inject around 75
million children with a fast tracked vaccine
containing novel adjuvants, including dangerous
squalene, to prevent perhaps 100 deaths.
overlooking the tragedy of the loss of even one
child to an illness like the H1N1 flu virus. But
there can be no argument that unnecessary mass
injection of millions of children with a vaccine
containing an adjuvant known to cause a host of
debilitating autoimmune diseases is a reckless,
are Vaccinations Dangerous?
presumed intent of a vaccination is to help you
build immunity to potentially harmful organisms that
cause illness and disease. However, your body’s
immune system is already designed to do this in
response to organisms which invade your body
disease-causing organisms enter your body through
the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth, pulmonary
system or your digestive tract – not through an
mucous membranes have their own immune system,
called the IgA immune system. It is a different
system from the one activated when a vaccine is
injected into your body.
immune system is your body’s first line of defense.
Its job is to fight off invading organisms at their
entry points, reducing or even eliminating the need
for activation of your body’s immune system.
virus is injected into your body in a vaccine, and
especially when combined with an immune adjuvant
like squalene, your IgA immune system is bypassed
and your body’s immune system kicks into high gear
in response to the vaccination.
Injecting organisms into your body to
provoke immunity is contrary to nature, and
vaccination carries enormous
potential to do serious damage to your health.

ingredient in a vaccine is either killed viruses or
live ones that have been attenuated (weakened and
made less harmful).
Flu vaccines can also contain a
number of chemical
including ethylene glycol (antifreeze),
formaldehyde, phenol (carbolic acid) and even
antibiotics like Neomycin and streptomycin.
addition to the viruses and other additives, many
vaccines also contain immune adjuvants like aluminum

to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to

are supposed to get the job done faster (but
certainly not more safely), which reduces the amount
of vaccine required per dose, and the number of
doses given per individual.
vaccine required per person means more individual
doses available for mass vaccination campaigns.
Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of
government and the pharmaceutical companies who
stand to make millions from their vaccines.
There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?
U.S. government has contracts with several drug
companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines.
At least two of those companies,
are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.
to Meryl Nass, M.D., an authority on the anthrax
feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by
companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the
addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost
immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of
viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster
production of desired vaccine quantities.”[v]
Novartis’s proprietary squalene adjuvant for their
H1N1 vaccine is MF59. Glaxo’s is ASO3. MF59 has yet
to be approved by the FDA for use in any U.S.

using an approved squalene adjuvant. None of the
three are approved for use in the U.S.
Squalene Does to Rats
vaccination adjuvants like squalene have been proved
to generate concentrated, unremitting immune
responses over long periods of time.[vi]
study published in the American Journal of
Pathology demonstrated a single injection of the
adjuvant squalene into rats triggered “chronic,
immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation,” also
known as rheumatoid arthritis.[vii]
researchers concluded the study raised questions
about the role of adjuvants in chronic inflammatory
Squalene Does to Humans
Your immune system recognizes
squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It
is found throughout your nervous system and brain.
In fact, you can consume
squalene in olive oil
and not only will your immune system recognize it,
you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant
difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the
route by which it enters your body. Injection is an
abnormal route of entry which incites your immune
system to attack all the squalene in your
body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.
immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule
wherever it finds it, including in places where it
occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the
health of your nervous system.[viii]
veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received
anthrax vaccines which contained squalene.[ix]
MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an
unapproved ingredient in
experimental anthrax vaccines
and has since been linked to the devastating
autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War

that squalene was indeed an added contaminant in the
anthrax vaccine administered to Persian Gulf war
military personnel – deployed and non-deployed – as
well as participants in the more recent Anthrax
Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP).
the FDA discovered the presence of squalene in
certain lots of AVIP product. A test was developed
to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients,
and a clear link was established between the
contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who
had been injected with the vaccine containing
conducted at Tulane Medical School and published in
the February 2000 issue of Experimental Molecular
Pathology included these stunning statistics:
“ … the
substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed
GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%)
GWS patients immunized for service in Desert
Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the
same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had
antibodies to squalene.
contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf
veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have
antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with
idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls
had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The
majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum
antibodies to squalene.”[xi]

research scientist for the government of Australia:

the soldiers involved in the Gulf War.

Vaccination Follow-Up Might as Well Be Non-Existent
is virtually no science to support the safety of
vaccine injections on your long-term health or the
health of your children. Follow-up studies last on
average about two weeks, and look only for glaring
injuries and illnesses.

the vagueness of early symptoms. Complaints like
headaches, fatigue and chronic aches and pains are
