Vaccines Cause Allergies – Dr. Dave Mihalovic

By Dr. Dave Mihalovic   Prevent June 8, 2012

‘Recent evidence indicates that routine childhood vaccinations contribute to the emergence of chronic allergic problems such as eczema, ear infections, and asthma. A growing number of scientists and physicians maintain that most standard vaccinations permanently disturb the developing immune system, setting the stage for hypersensitive reactions to foods and other common substances. In fact, childhood illnesses such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough may actually reduce the risk of allergy, says Konrad Kail, N.D.

Vaccines clog our lymphatic system and lymph nodes with large protein molecules which have not been adequately broken down by our digestive processes, since vaccines bypass digestion with injections. This is why vaccines are linked to allergies, because they contain large proteins which as circulating immune complexes (CICs) or “klinkers” which cause our body to become allergic.’


City Kids Are More Likely To Have Food Allergies: Here’s The True Cause

Dr. Dave Mihalovic June 8, 2012

A recent study published in the latest issue of Clinical Pediatrics has found that children living in urban centers have a much higher prevalence of food allergies than those living in rural areas. It’s the first study to map children’s food allergies by geographical location in the United States. In particular, kids in big cities were found to be more than twice as likely to have peanut allergies compared to rural communities. The study humorously found a correlation between higher population density and greater likelihood of food allergies; however the actual cause is another story.

If the assumptions made in this study were correct, namely that higher population density increases the chance of food allergies, then it would be reasonable to infer that nations with the highest population densities (who have the most densely populated cities) would also have the highest rates of food allergies. However countries such as Singapore, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Taiwan and South Korea, some of the most densely populated areas of the world suffer no greater food allergy rates by ratio than do Americans–in fact they are less.

Author of the study, Ruchi Gupta, M.D., an assistant professor of pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a physician stated “this shows that environment has an impact on developing food allergies. Similar trends have been seen for related conditions like asthma. The big question is — what in the environment is triggering them? A better understanding of environmental factors will help us with prevention efforts.”

I would agree that the environment is partially responsible for the impact of food allergies on children. However, there is one very important cause of food allergies that was conveniently neglected from the study…

Vaccines Cause Allergies

Recent evidence indicates that routine childhood vaccinations contribute to the emergence of chronic allergic problems such as eczema, ear infections, and asthma. A growing number of scientists and physicians maintain that most standard vaccinations permanently disturb the developing immune system, setting the stage for hypersensitive reactions to foods and other common substances. In fact, childhood illnesses such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough may actually reduce the risk of allergy, says Konrad Kail, N.D.

Vaccines clog our lymphatic system and lymph nodes with large protein molecules which have not been adequately broken down by our digestive processes, since vaccines by pass digestion with injections. This is why vaccines are linked to allergies, because they contain large proteins which as circulating immune complexes (CICs) or “klinkers” which cause our body to become allergic.

Approximately 20 percent of children may outgrow their allergies, but with the increased frequency of recommended vaccines before the age of 3, severe allergic reactions will likely increase.

Egg is the second most common food allergy in early childhood. Approx 1.5 to 3.2 percent of all children under 3 have an egg allergy. It is fast becoming a recognized fact that those with an egg allergy should consult their doctor before receiving a vaccination. This is because occasionally vaccines are grown in cell cultures of chick embryo’s and may cause a reaction. An example of this is the MMR.

One of the first vaccines given to children, DTaP10, contains casein. Casein allergy coincidently appears in children in the first few months of life. Another vaccine given to children at two months of age is the Pneumococcal conjugate (PCV7). Each serotype for this vaccine is grown in soy peptone broth. A soy allergy is most common in infants and is usually noticed by 3 months of age…coincidence?

Injections have been used to create allergies in test animals. Any food protein remaining in the vaccine from the culture medium or diluent oils when injected along with an adjuvant can cause a food allergy.

City Kids Are More Likely To Be Vaccinated

Gupta’s study included 38,465 children, 18 years and under, who comprised a representative sample of U.S. households. The key findings:

  • In urban centers, 9.8 percent of children have food allergies, compared to 6.2 percent in rural communities, almost a 3.5 percent difference.
  • Peanut allergies are twice as prevalent in urban centers as in rural communities, with 2.8 percent of children having the allergy in urban centers compared to 1.3 percent in rural communities. Shellfish allergies are more than double the prevalence in urban versus rural areas; 2.4 percent of children have shellfish allergies in urban centers compared to 0.8 percent in rural communities.
  • Food allergies are equally severe regardless of where a child lives, the study found. Nearly 40 percent of food-allergic children in the study had already experienced a severe, life-threatening reaction to food.
  • The states with the highest overall prevalence of food allergies are Nevada, Florida, Georgia, Alaska, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

The study controlled for household income, race, ethnicity, gender and age. It tracked food allergy prevalence in urban centers, metropolitan cities, urban outskirts, suburban areas, small towns and rural areas. However, it did not track children’s diet, exposure to pollutants in the home or vaccination rates.

Coincidently, and with the exception of Alaska and New Jersey, the states found to have the highest overall prevalence of food allergies also have the highest compliance rates for vaccination, especially Florida, Georgia, Delaware, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

According to the World Health Organization, urban children are more likely to receive the measles and DTP3 (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis) vaccines than children in rural and poorer areas.

Infectious disease specialist Dr. Jonathan Maynard said that vaccinations are better enforced in city populations. “There has always been more control and enforcement of vaccination policies in city networks as opposed to rural and much of that has to do with regulating bodies and their enhanced ability to enforce public cooperation,” he stated. Dr. Maynard also proclaimed that compliance to specific vaccines can be up to 30% higher in urban children than those in rural areas.

As more and more vaccines are added to the vaccine schedule, a worrying increase of children suffering from severe food allergies is occurring. Vaccines are causing a nation of sick children. This not only financially benefits the pharmaceutical industry but has opened the door for a whole new industry promoting allergy free foods supported by big pharma themselves.

There is indeed an environmental connection to allergies and pollutants are certainly a factor in their development. However, vaccinations have far more to do with allergy rates than population density itself. I would be very interested if Ruchi Gupta would proceed with a follow-up to his study and integrate vaccines, medications and toxic foods that children are exposed to on a regular basis. I think he would find out very quickly that population density is the least of our problems.

    My 6 year old child received “routine” vaccinations up until she was 2 years old. By this time, she had received 20 doses. I noticed that she had a stuffy nose in the hospital, but it didn’t occur to me that this could be a reaction to the Hep B vaccine until recently. She was exclusively breast fed until 6 months of age and showed no sign of environmental or food allergies until I stopped breastfeeding her at 17 months. She now has what I would consider chronic sinusitis. How can I detox her body?

  2. Donna Brickey says:

    My daughter received a flu shot on Oct. 15, 2013 and had a seizure on Oct. 19,2013 She has never had a seizure before. Catscan and blood work showed no problems. She is 19 years old. We are now waiting for appt with a Neurologist in 3 weeks. They have put her on antiseizure meds, that I don’t really agree with. I am interested in your views, if the shot could have caused this. She has had flu shots in the past and no problems. Looking for help!

  3. Barb says:

    Yes, vaccines are the direct cause of many food allergies. The Pharmaceutical companies can “self affirm” GRAS ingredients. Basically this means that they do a study, have some of their “experts” review the study then they are free to use an ingredient in vaccines with no disclosure. The study never gets published or submitted to the government. The ingredients are protected trade secrets. You can read patents on line to see that every food oil known to man can be used in the vaccine adjuvant. The FDA, the pharmacists, and doctors do not know what is in the vaccines. And it is only the final culture medium that is on the package insert. Up until then every food known to man can be used. Patents on line make interesting reading. And historically there were no records of food allergies until after vaccines were being used.

  4. Caitlin says:

    my 4 year old daughter Maggie has a servere allergy to peanuts was this perhaps caused by immunisations?

  5. Laura says:

    My daughter’s multiple food allergies began when she was about 2 1/2 years old and has suffered from varying degrees of eczema since then. She began to outgrow the allergies by the time she was 8 yrs old. Although they didn’t completely disappear, her condition was much better and things looked promising.

    When she was 9 I took her to get a flu shot (mist), she had gone without one for approximately 5 years. Around the time of the shot her eczema abruptly flared up and she developed a new allergy to wheat. That year she was constantly getting sick and her eczema was hard to control. I asked the doctor if the flu vaccine could have triggered new allergies and she said no.

    Then, I took her to get the shot again this year in January. That same month not only did she develop more food allergies and worsening eczema, she also started having problems with her ears where filtering out competing sounds was difficult and her ears were becoming sensitive to high pitch sounds. Now we are in March and her ear pain has become progressively worse. She’s been diagnosed with hyperacusis and will be starting therapy for it shortly. I don’t think these are coincidences. I only hope she will have another opportunity to grow out of the allergies. As for the flu shot, she was so much healthier before getting them; I will not be making that mistake again.

    • Nicholas says:

      thanks laura…for sharing your daughter’s problem as now i got few answers for my mysterious food allergy which started 4 yrs back…i remember that was the first time i took flu shot and after few months of it i started getting allergies when ever i used to consume milk or any dairy products plus i also developed allergy to chicken. without knowing the cause for all this i was having flu shot every year. even the doctors i showed up to had no idea that how i developed this.
      so laura if u’ll be able to find a complete cure for your daughter please let me also know it….i get severe itching,hives which stays for almost an hour,breathlessness at night.i use antihistamine to control the situation but this allergies worsen during winters.

      • Michelle Madsen says:

        Nicholas – have you been bitten by any ticks? You may have been and not know it. Get checked for Lyme AND co-infections, specifically Babesia and also get tested for Alpha-gal allergy transmitted by ticks as well. associated with dairy intolerance.

  6. Laurene says:

    The fact that nobody has EVER thought to carry out a study of Vaccinated versus unvaccinated children speaks volumes. In my view, like everthing in life, follow the money and you will have the answer.

    My daughter is not vaccinated. A very hard decision for a parent, however compared to her peers she is the model of good health. Her childcare centre has a huge whiteboard in the kitchen with photos of children and details of what they can and cannot eat, and the severity of their allergy, such as “Life Threatening seek immediate medical attention” Epipens are now standard kit for many many children.

  7. Denise says:

    I was required to get a flu shot in Nov 2012. Within 2 weeks of receiving the shot, I was no longer able to eat eggs. Doing so caused extreme gastric cramping, sweats, blurred vision and my body feeling “wiped out” for about 3 hours. I was able to eat eggs in baked goods with no side effects. The following year, under the advice of 3 vaccination nurses and an employee health representative, I was advised that if I was able to eat eggs in baked goods, that I was cleared for the flu vaccine. Within 15 minutes, I was being wheeled to the ER with limb numbness, elevated heart rate, tightening in the chest and throat. I was given steroids, Benadryl and anti nausea medicine. After I was cleared to leave, I went home and slept for 3 hours. Since then, I have become sensitive to eggs in baked goods as well. I have seen an allergist and my blood tests as well as skin pricks have all come back negative for egg allergy. How is this possible?

    • Zana says:

      Denise, I am so glad you wrote that down. I have the same problems with eggs and paprika for 15 years after being vaccinated against TB (2 shots). Till now I did not find anyone with the same problems and the doctors have no idea what is wrong with me.

  8. Meredith says:

    This then explains why when I was in school, in the 80’s and 90’s there were no “peanut free zones” for kids to eat at. We didnt carry Epi pens in our backpacks…we didnt worry about allergies. Nothing in the grocery store had to label that it was manufactored in a place that also processes peanuts etc. As more vaccines have been added more and more of our children now “have something”. I was vaccinated a child. I am 36 years old and not allergic to anything and do not have a “diagnosis” if you will. Lucky? Maybe so…. However, I have 5 children. Their ages ate 16, 9, 4, 3 and 2. The oldest 2 each got all scheduled vaccinations…I started to question things with our 3rd child who after his 2 and 3 month shots suddenly could no longer drink the formula he was on. He couldnt do soy either. We had to buy awful smelling formula and add dark Karo Syrup to get him to drink it. I then wised up and decided vaccinations were no good. He hasnt had one since and my youngest two have had none. I also breastfed the youngest two. I believe that because I stopped the vaccinations with my son after 3 months that is the ONLY reason he is damage free today. I also was amazed at the difference in just how many vaccinations my second child got versus my oldest in just a 7 year time span!!!!!! And now it is even more than that. If you are on the fence on this one, don’t do it. It isnt worth the damage, whether seen or unseen.

  9. Michael S. T. says:

    I’m really glad I stumbled about this website. As a victim myself, I was mandated as a U.S. Army Soldier, at age 32 to take a mandatory flu shot in 2009. I didn’t think much of it, but within about 30 minutes, developed severe fatigue, throat swelling, fever, itching, and tightness in my jaw, causing hard clicking. I hadn’t had the flu since I was about 12. I now have severe allergies and have been hospitalized numerous times for anaphylaxis; I had never had any issues prior to the mandatory flu vaccine. I have since become a bit less sensitive, but must still carry an Epi pen wherever I go, along with allergy meds. I have also since have very vocal in my story, and wonder why the pharmacies spend so much $ with signs, commercials, billboards, and other ads pushing for flu shots. Not only do they make $ with the shot, they also make $ if people become allergic to the shot, because that’s where allergy medicine is acquired.

  10. Arthur Schiller says:

    There was a statement on the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America’s web page (with a link to a study showing) that children who were vaccinated for measles were three times more likely to have allergies, but that link is now gone. Hmm.
    Paul Offit says it would be “unethical” to compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children in a study. Just how is obtaining medical records (stripped of their personally-identifying information) for the purpose of a medical study “unethical?”

  11. Sam says:

    My daughter is 3 and has undergone all usual vaccinations. She always had skin issues and was fairly sick early on in life. When she was one her doctors recommended allergy testing. Eventually they concluded she was allergic to almost every known allergn. She can’t eat wheat, eggs, milk, dairy of any kind, nuts ( tree or peanuts), soy and fish. She was also diagnosed with extreme excema. We have dealt with this diagnosis for years and have always asked why. We have never received and answer. I never even considered vaccines as a possible reasons, my older child has received them all with no consequences. I am just curious if I am missing a connection between her allergies and her vaccinations.

  12. Nancy says:

    I have a 21 year old going to study abroad in Panama in January 2016. She is unvaccinated (except for Tetanus). We are able to waive some of the vaccines but others like: Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Hep A, and TB are high suggested since these are disease prevalent to the area. Can anyone tell me if they have older children or have themselves gotten these shots and have you experienced reactions. She will also receive a script for Malaria in the event she contracts this disease, she will already have the medication. As a mom, I have so many worries. Any advice would be appreciated. Note: we also practice homeopathy but not sure of a remedy to take at the same time of getting vaccines.

  13. Quinn says:

    In the fall of 2014 I received a flu shot. I had had flu vaccines previously without problems. Four days later I began to develop an extremely itchy rash which eventually covered my entire body, except for my face. I was on prednisone for several months, but finally found help with acupuncture and homeopathic remedies. Today the rash is fairly controlled, and appears to come out when I eat certain foods. This was never the case before this flu vaccine. I am now very hesitant about vaccines. I have never been south and would like to take a trip to Carribean or Mexico, but am concerned about the Hep vaccines. Any thoughts??

  14. Normina says:

    When I was still studying in college,our school conducted a Hepatitis B vaccination program for all of the students in the campus & I was one of the students who had the complete dose of hepatitis vaccine. Since I was a child I never had an allergy to any kinds of foods. But since I had the hepatitis B vaccine I started to have an allergy to chicken, egg and some sea foods…which really bothers me. I need some further explanation why I had this allergy & what should be the best thing to do to detoxify myself from this vaccine?

    Wishing your response..

  15. Rani Beg says:

    I have 3 children and I haven’t vaccinated any of them and none of them have allergies. The nurses and doctors look at me as if I’m crazy but I’ve seen the differences in my family. My nephew’s been given all his shots and he’s allergic to dairy, eggs, nuts, wheat, soya, legumes, fish, bananas, dust and heaven knows what else. I feel sorry for him because he can’t have any of the normal food like biscuits or cakes, sandwiches etc. especially at childrens’ parties. His mum had to stop having the things he was allergic to while she was breastfeeding him until she became too weak and had to give it up. I tell everyone I know not to jab their kids just yet, let them develop their own immunity. I may sound uneducated in this area but I actually grew these cultures in the lab while studying Biomedical Science at uni and I wasn’t very comfortable with it then. I don’t get the idea how you can get immune to a disease which has been put directly inside you? It doesn’t make sense.
