GlaxoSmithKline’s Rotarix and Merck’s RotaTeq – are contaminated with pig virus DNA

Vaccine Contamination: A Threat To Human Health
by Barbara Loe Fisher

In the past few months, the American public has been informed that two infant diarrhea vaccines – GlaxoSmithKline’s Rotarix and Merck’s RotaTeq – are contaminated with pig virus DNA. But there’s a difference between the two vaccines: Rotarix contains parts of a pig virus that does not make pigs sick while Merck’s RotaTeq contains parts of a pig virus that kills baby pigs.

How many mothers know that, when Merck’s diarrhea vaccine is squirted into the mouths of their two month old babies, they are swallowing parts of a pig virus that suppresses the immune systems of baby pigs so badly, they waste away and suffer respiratory, kidney, reproductive and brain damage before dying?

Do Doctors, Legislators or Reporters Know?

And how many doctors and nurses making babies swallow rotavirus vaccines know that? And how many members of Congress, who are responsible for oversight of federal health agencies charged with ensuring vaccine safety, know that?

And how many mainstream media outlets are not covering this important story, a story that broke on March 22, 2010, when the FDA recommended temporary suspension of Rotarix vaccine because of contamination with parts of a non-lethal pig virus, only to withdraw the recommendation after a meeting on May 7th, when it was revealed that RotaTeq vaccine is contaminated with DNA from a pig virus that is lethal?

DNA Can Infect Human Cells

Why should we care about vaccines being contaminated with foreign DNA from deadly animal viruses? Because it is a well known fact that DNA from animal viruses can infect human cells and change human DNA to cause disease in humans.

NVIC & Dr. Mercola Call For RotaTeq Vaccine Recall

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) joins with holistic health pioneer Dr. Joseph Mercola in calling for Merck to voluntarily recall its live rotavirus vaccine – RotaTeq – which is contaminated with parts of a lethal virus that infects pigs, – porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2) – and publicly pledge to clean-up the vaccine.

On May 7th GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) publicly pledged to re-formulate its rotavirus vaccine, Rotarix, by removing DNA from a non-lethal pig virus (PCV1). RotaTeq is contaminated with DNA from both PCV1 and PCV2. PCV2 is an aggressive virus that causes immune suppression, wasting disease and death in baby pigs.

Babies Swallow DNA From Lethal Pig Virus

“Responsible corporations voluntarily recall contaminated foods and drugs that could possibly compromise safety,” said NVIC Co- Founder & President Barbara Loe Fisher. “When RotaTeq is squirted into the mouths of babies, how many doctors or parents know those babies are swallowing DNA from a virus that can injure and kill baby pigs?”

Dangerous to Assume Safety

“No company marketing a product found to be contaminated should be given a free pass,” said Dr. Joseph Mercola. “It is always dangerous to assume safety. Vaccines contaminated with viral DNA that could evolve and infect humans cannot, and should not be assumed to be safe,” said Dr. Mercola.
