Biblically Unclean Foods Found in Flu Vaccines - samanth celera


Flu shot ingredients include such toxins as aborted fetal tissues along with animal tissues and fluids from scripturally unclean beasts.


For those striving to keep a biblically clean diet, it may come as a surprise to many that flu vaccines contain ingredients that break the commandment outlined in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14 regarding ritually clean and unclean food.

Animals such as swine, shellfish, certain types of fowl and insects have been defined as scripturally unclean according to the bible in Levicitus chapter 11 and Deuteronomy chapter 14. Land animals, such as monkeys, pigs, rabbits, and camels do not "chew the cud" or "divide the hoof"; therefore, are not fit for consumption, and are classified as unclean. The digestive system of many of these animals allow high levels of toxins to accumulate in the animal's system.

Known Toxins and Other Ingredients in the Flu Vaccine

The flu shot contains dead influenza viruses; however, since there are many flu viruses in existence, pharmaceutical companies choose three main ingredients for the flu shot. Preservatives are added to the vaccine in order to ensure longevity; these preservatives include a mercury known as thimerosal, aluminum hydroxide and phosphate, and formaldehyde.

Other ingredients include a detergent called triton X100, phenoxyethanol, or antifreeze, and other toxins such as ammonium sulfate, beta-propiolactone, and macerated cancer cells. These ingredients cause illness in the human body, damaging internal organs such as the pancreas, kidneys, and liver.

Along with the above-mentioned toxins, animals tissues and fluids are also added to the flu shot. These animals tissues come from unclean animals such as horse blood, rabbit brain, dog and monkey kidneys, pig blood and pig tissue or protein. These unclean animals contain within their tissues toxins from parasites they ingest, which causes disease in humans.

Do Flu Vaccines Contain Aborted Fetal Tissues?

When manufacturing live viruses, it is necessary to use live cells from either animals or humans, as viruses cannot reproduce on their own. Vaccine manufacturers will use, and have used, human cells in order to grow live viruses, mainly due to the fact that using animal cells carries its own dangers to humans.

Diploid cells from aborted fetuses is among the ingredients found in flu vaccines. Diploid cells are batches of human cells grown in a laboratory. These cells can be used for long periods of time, and have proven effective in cultivating live viruses.

There are two different strains of human diploid cells which were retrieved from aborted human fetuses. These strains have been used to develop vaccines for over 35 years. The first strain is called WI-38, and was developed in 1961 in the United States. The cells were taken from the lungs of a female fetus, aborted at 3 months of age. The other strain that has been in use for years is called MRC-5. This baby was aborted in the United Kingdom in 1966 at 14 months gestation. The cells from this aborted fetus' lungs were removed.

Because these cells can reproduce themselves, these same strains have been used many times over to prepare millions of vaccines each year. As well as flu vaccines, they can be found in other vaccines such as rubella and hepatis A.

Natural Alternatives to Flu Shots

Avoiding the flu, according to doctors and other experts, can be accomplished without getting a flu shot. The following are some simple steps to take to minimize one's chances of catching the flu during flu season:

  • Maintain a healthy diet. Avoid processed foods, foods high in sugar, and fast foods. To build a strong immune system, incorporate foods rich in nutrients, such as vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains.
  • Be sure to get the recommended amount of sleep each night. Sleep deprivation contributes to a weakened immune system.
  • Exercise on a regular basis. Incorporate an exercise regimen that includes a good cardio workout.
  • Drink plenty of pure water.
  • Incorporate vitamins and minerals into your diet that help to build the immune system, such as vitamin C, zinc, and probiotics.
  • Include whole food supplements such as garlic, ginger, elderberry and goldenseal. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as cod liver oil, have shown to be beneficial in building and maintaining a strong immune system.

Public health officials urge people to get a flu shot each year. It is just as important, however, to understand what ingredients are used in the flu shot to determine if it is an appropriate alternative. Maintaining good health will optimize one's chances of avoiding the flu or minimizing symptoms if the virus invades the body, and is a good alternative for many.
