More Shocking Vaccine News: Common Vaccines Contaminated with Glyphosate!

Folks, I have written about the problems with vaccines in previous blog posts.  Now, a new serious contamination problem with our vaccines has been identified.

Researcher Anthony Samsel has published five peer-reviewed articles on the herbicide Glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup®). 

A yet-to-be published sixth paper found various commonly-used vaccines contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate.

Yes, you read that correctly:  Our vaccines are contaminated with an herbicide that the World Health Organization characterized as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

How can this happen?  That answer is easy.  Many vaccines contain animal byproducts such as gelatin, bovine casein, bovine serum, bovine calf serum, or chicken egg protein.  The animals from which these products come from are fed grains sprayed with glyphosate.  It does not take a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that these animals, fed glyphosate in their diet, would contain glyphosate in their byproducts. 

Samsel sent a letter to Congress that stated, “I have run numerous groups of vaccines and identified several vectors of contamination.  These include the excipient gelatins, egg protein and or similar substrates used to grow vaccines. I have found gelatins and egg proteins contaminated with Glyphosate-based herbicides from animals fed a glyphosate contaminated diet. This contamination carries into

thousands of consumer products i.e. vitamins, protein powders, wine, beer and other

consumables which use gelatins as part of the product or in fining and processing.”


What did Samsel hear back?  He heard nothing.  In other words, our do-nothing Congress, so far, has failed to respond. 

In his letter to Congress, Samsel also stated that Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid.  It bioaccumulates and is found in all tissue types, particularly the bone and marrow of animals fed a diet contaminated with Glyphosate residues.


You can see Dr. Samsel talk about his research here:

The following vaccines were found to be contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate:  MMR, Varicella (chicken pox), Zostavax (shingles), Proquad (MMR, rubella, varicella),  Fluzone Quad (flu vaccine) and Hepatitis B (B Energix-B).  Multiple vaccines from different manufactures were found to be contaminated.

Folks, this is a big deal.  Injecting a vaccine contaminated with a known herbicide that is “probably carcinogenic to humans” should be prohibited.  We need a Congressional investigation into our vaccines.  

We keep hearing the mantra that vaccines are safe.  Injecting a vaccine containing an herbicide is safe?

Give me a break!

It is time to call your Congressmen and women and tell them to investigate this matter.
I can assure you that it is not safe to inject a known neurotoxin such as mercury or aluminum.  Nor is it safe to inject a known carcinogen such as formaldehyde. 

Guess what? 

It is not safe to inject an herbicide that is a probable human carcinogen.

    Thank you for the educational and worrisome article. As a parent of young children and seeing on the news parents going to jail because their child died on meningitis, I have to make the decision every year to vaccinate or not vaccinate my children.

    I do not want to but the school and “doctors” are making it difficult for us in our resistance. I am going to the Health Department today to sign the waiver for my son’s Hap A and B vaccines and have to go over a 30 “education” prior to be allowed to receive and sign the waiver.

    Do you have any advice for parents like me? I will read more on the website that you have advised to Anne in the other comment here. If it really comes down to a case, that could be preventable with a vaccine, according to the “pro-vaccine world”, I will be responsible for a possible dead of my child? This is where my knowledge and argumentation are not deep enough to understand the real risks of the diseases and their preventions and how to protect my family from it and from the system.

    I am terrified of what we are doing to our children (food, lifestyle, body-mind connection) and how restrict we are in our system, that only seems to care sometimes only on the surface and it’s not true to it’s intentions. It should really be called “Sick System” and not “Health System”.

    You will all be happy to know that I am part of a lawsuit in California to sue Governor Jerry Brown, and Senator Richard Pan,
    along with many others who have signed into law the mandatory vaccination bill in this state. This bill takes away the religious belief exemption and only allows for a medical exemption which is extremely hard to get. We are hoping to make a difference with this criminal suit, that they willfully and knowingly acted with malice, and perjured their oaths of office to support and defend the California and U.S. Constitutions and Bill of Rights by forcing these “vaccines” on every school-aged child which are full of poisons like Formaldehyde, Aluminum Phosphate, Mercury, etc. We believe it is a criminal conspiracy between the Defendant legislators, certain Pharma companies and the CDC to poison the California population by implementing this bill and giving their constituents no choice to opt out and receive public schooling which we have all paid for with our taxes. This is just the beginning of the government taking away our freedoms and Everyone needs to get involved in their own states in order to prevent them following California’s lead.

    I’ve now seen several articles exposing the greater dangers of the secret “inert ingredients” which glyphosate is mixed with from the manufacturer. The articles said these substances are orders of magnitude more toxic than glyphosate! I.e., when anything is contaminated by glyphosate it’s also probably contaminated by these other toxics. This is the unrecognized elephant in the room of this controversy. The Feds collect info what these ingredients are but they’re trade secrets & exempted from labeling or other disclosure.

    Another vector of our contamination is via cotton, which is used all around us from clothing to “sterile” gauze to paper.

    To Anne, according to Dr. Judy Mikovits, no new born should ever be given vaccines till At least they are over 3 yrs. old. And then still its probably not safe. I had Dr. Judy over at my home to talk on thedangers of vaccines & cancer. Look her up , she has one hell of a story to tell. All the Best.

    We are swimming in a sea of round up! I am a farmer in the U.P. who raises hay and livestock, I learned recently that after being soaked in glyphosphate for the last 18 years or so, glyphosphate from all of the Midwest corn and soybean fields is being picked up in the rain clouds by the process of evapotranspiration, then deposited in the forests and farms in the rain :>( there is an organic farmer in remote rural Maine (who has no nearby neighbors who use round up) he tested his hay and found glyphosphate residue in it (Artilce in the summer edition of the Maine organic Farmer and Gardener)! So even those of us who choose not to spray this poison are affected by it!

    Based on the evidence of the last 15 years, I don’t believe any help from Congress will be forthcoming. Their ‘investigations’ have proven fruitless. Agency heads refuse to provide records, response time is merely extended. and re-extended. Agency heads are cited in contempt of court, nothing happens. The ‘rules’ are applied to us, government exempts its own. Vaccines are a ‘cash cow’ not only for big pharma, but for all those inside trader Congress members heavily invested in same. When, in the great District of Corruption, dollars are pitted against operating on principle, the dollars win hands down every time.

    It’s obviously time for an approach which falls outside of typical systemic protocols, and one involving great numbers of people. The trick is in coordinating them to act – or not, as in the manner of civil disobedience espoused by Thoreau. If all those in California in disagreement with the legal mandate stopped sending their children to school, the individual school districts would lose their state and federal per-child per-diem dollars…resulting in a far greater impact on the districts than is generally thought. In response, the state would be taking a lot of heat from their own ‘defunded’ districts. The strategy places the governing agencies at odds with one another, an entirely different ballgame than merely using the media to discredit and vilify parental vocal opposition.

    Our farmers here in Australia are spraying Roundup on their wheat crops just prior to harvest so that as the plant begins to die (as a result of the ANTI = BIOTIC) the moisture content of the grain reduces evenly throughout the field. The grain moisture content must be below 12% to be accepted for delivery to storages. This process has several advantages from the farmers point of view. 1. The spray rig/equipment is already part of farm equipment. ie. Economic and timely application
    2. Reduced risk of grain rejection at point of delivery. ie. No costly artificial grain drying or return transport costs(in some cases can amount to hundreds of road miles!)
    3. Because the plant and most other weeds present in the crop have already already begun to die, the harvester is more effecient. ie. Through put is increased because of reduced moisture.
    4. The crop residue readily breaks down after harvest reducing the need for additional cultivating of the soil.
    5. The farmer is convinced that he is farming sustainably because of using less fuel and leaving crop residue on the ground surface.
    We must ONLY BUY CERTIFIED ORGANIC if we are to help eliminate this curse!!
    Don’t blame the farmer! The same people that convince Gov., show figures and demonstrate to farmers how this can increase their profitability. Their methods & finance is “bottomless”. Why? Because it is provided by the taxpayer via the Gov.!

    Dr B, what advice would you give to a new mom who was told of her 5-day old infant – “great, growing well – next week SHOTS.”

    My 3 kids are grown and my daughter just gave birth. I’ve become cynical of “establishment doctors” and Rx drugs and vaccines in recent years – but vaccine safety is NOT what she wants to hear right about now, especially after I did it to the 3 of them.

    Since she will be using family/home daycare for at least a few years – would delaying the public-school required vaccines for a year or more be better than giving shots to a 2-week old, 6.5-lb baby?

      Look at and do your research. Then you can make a good decision.

    Thank you Dr. Brownstein for keeping us up to date on what goes in these shots and for suggesting
    we do something to stop the madness. The whole medical establishment is making less sense.
    Trying to prevent something with a shot that contains a harmful substance is crazy.
    How about doing an article on where the medications are coming from? I recently took
    a blood pressure medication from a different company and had a bad reaction after taking
    the same drug for years. Could it be that importing drugs from china, india and mexico
    be making a difference in the quality and mix of the so called same drug? Maybe its time
    to bring the manufacturing of American medications including these shots back to
    America to keep a tight eye on what we are taking?

    Gelatin and such from pasture raised livestock should be OK. For that matter, purchasing pasture raised meat is a good idea for nutritional, environmental and food security reasons. If you live where grass grows well try to find a nearby farmer or farm co-op to buy from. Raised correctly, grass fed beef is amazing. I’m convinced that part of the reason we’ve seen such a rise in autism is from nutritional deficiencies deriving from the jihad against red meat and the poor health of feedlot cattle. Zinc, etc.

    Given the apparent cluelessness of the Medical Industrial Complex on nutrition I’d expect them to use the cheapest materials available in medicines, which would be gelatin etc from factory farm livestock raised on taxpayer subsidized GMO corn.

    The saddest thing about this is that glyphosate may be down the list of the stuff worthy of concern in these vaccines. It is likely only present in very minute amounts that may not be that significant. This might be like worrying about someone drinking themselves to death with plastic bottles of booze with BPA 🙂

    It’s an outright mockery! When, WHEN are we the people going to take back the reins of control.
    The government is suppose to exist for the benefit of the people, remember: “of, by and for the people!”
    The entire system of lobbying is near criminal in itself, and only serves the interests of big corporation &
    Big Pharma. Disgraceful! They have blood on their hands!!!

    Oh, I am using Great Lakes gelatine for my daughter with CFS as the doctor suggested it for its glycine component. Should I stop??.
    But wouldn’t we be getting glyphosate in so many products … Where does this madness stop!
    Groan. After 8 years of watching her with CFS it almost gives me PTSD to read these things as I try to guide her through this. Every time we try an avenue we discover all the negatives. It’s like a little piece of me dies inside each time I hear I Amy be giving her something that is detrimental.

    Good afternoon Dr. Brownstein,

    I am currently taking two products which I thought were good for me, but after reading this article, maybe they are not. I am taking Cholacol, from Standard Process, which has Bovine Bile salts to help with low acid productions for digestion. I am also taking Collagen Hydrolysate from Great Lakes Gelatin for Joint Care, etc. Maybe these are not safe as well?
    Thank you for all your great articles and advice.
