Infected Monkey Kidney Cells: Why Vaccines are Not Vegan

Infected Monkey Kidney Cells: Why Vaccines are Not Vegan

Smallpox, Polio and DTaP and soon the Ebola vaccines contain infected monkey kidney cells. Are you vegan? Have you considered what you are injecting as well as what you are ingesting? 

Simian Virus 40/ SV40  was the 40th virus found in rhesus monkey kidney cells when these cells were used to make the polio vaccine. This virus contaminated both the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV) created by Dr. Jonas Salk and the Oral or “Live” Polio Vaccine (OPV) created by Dr. Albert Sabin.

In 1961, SV40 was discovered by Dr. Bernice Eddy of the National Institute of Health, Division of Biologics when she took the material used to grow polio vaccines and injected it into hamsters. Tumors grew in the hamsters. Her discovery was subsequently validated by Drs. Maurice Hilliman and Benjamin Sweet of Merck.

Upon the discovery that SV40 was an animal carcinogen that had found its way into the polio vaccines, a new federal law was passed in 1961 that required that no vaccines contain this virus. However, this law did not require that SV40 contaminated vaccines be thrown away or that the contaminated seed material (used to make all polio vaccines for the next four decades) be discarded. As a result, known SV40 contaminated vaccines were injected into children up until 1963. In addition, it has been alleged that there have been SV40-contaminated batches of oral polio vaccine administered to some children until the end of the 1990’s. 

Polio vaccine once contaminated with SV40 now contains infected African green monkey kidney cells

By 1960, the Salk polio vaccine had been injected into nearly 100 million American children and adults. It’s estimated that up to 30 percent of those vaccines were contaminated because they contained the live virus SV40. Federal testing of the vaccines followed but was performed inadequately (on purpose) for just 14 days – obviously not long enough to detect the deadly virus that lay dormant in tens of millions of children. In the years that followed, the incidence of pediatric cancer skyrocketed. Do the math. Pediatric cancer continued to climb throughout the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Cancer is now the number one killer of children in the U.S.

Natural News recently highlighted how the ACAM2000 smallpox vaccine is grown and cultured in African Green Monkey kidney (vero) cells.

The vaccine insert label contained the following warning:

Vaccine WARNINGS related to the vaccine using African Green Monkey kidney cells

Not surprisingly, this vaccine is known to cause extremely serious and even deadly side effects at a shockingly high rate. Here’s the WARNING box from the vaccine insert sheet, linked above:


See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning

Myocarditis and pericarditis (suspect cases observed at a rate of 5.7 per 1000 primary vaccinees (95% CI: 1.9-13.3)), encephalitis, encephalomyelitis, encephalopathy, progressive vaccinia, generalized vaccinia, severe vaccinial skin infections, erythema multiforme major (including STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME), eczema vaccinatum resulting in permanent sequelae or death, ocular complications, blindness and fetal death, have occurred following either primary vaccination or revaccination with live vaccinia virus smallpox vaccines. These risks are increased in certain individuals and may result in severe disability, permanent neurological sequelae and/or death [see Warnings and Precautions (5)].”

The aforementioned page on the CDC website states that other vaccines contain African Green Monkey kidney cells, including the polio vaccine (IPOL by Sanofi Pasteur), DTaP-IPV (Kinrix) and DTaP-HepB-IPV (Pediarix).
