According to Skeptical Raptor, 125 mcg = 1,250 mcg
After a series of completely pointless ad hominem attacks, Skeptical Raptor really sticks his foot in his mouth. while trying (but failing) to critique “Reconsideration of the immunotherapeutic pediatric safe dose levels of aluminum”
According to Skeptical Raptor, 125 micrograms is now equivalent to 1,250 micrograms. Let’s read:
Checking our paper, the maximum limit per vaccine is 1,250. But I’m only a multiple degreed scientist, so clearly I cannot be relied upon for elementary things like multiplication. So we go to the source (CFR 21CFR610.15):
Now, because I’m only a scientist, and milligrams to micrograms conversion may somehow confuse me, let’s ask The Google:
He? then goes on to calculate the totals that an infant could get at 4,225 micrograms in the first year of life.
Nice blog, but that’s wrong.
Our paper was analyzed and reviewed by other scientists, and our math show the expected annual dose to be 4,925 micrograms.
Not a big difference. He’s not thinking for himself, he’s not looking at the schedule. Or he’s not checking his math.
Skeptical Raptor completely ignores the findings of our analysis. Because toxic dose levels are to be done per kg per day, i.e., mcg/kg/day, it was elementary to calculate, given body weight distribution curves for the population, the acute dose levels expressed correctly as mcg/kg/day. For the first two months, the CDC schedule causes exposure to acute toxicity. On make-up days, 5, 7 and as high as 9 vaccines can be given at once.
Before they do another make-up day, pediatricians should add up the micrograms of aluminum, and divide by the child’s weight (in kg), and call FDA and ask if that it a toxic dose. Demand answers.
SR Makes the Same Food More than Vaccines Fallacy as Another Flawed Thinker
SR claims then that more aluminum goes into the body from breast milk and air than from vaccines.
Yet only 0.03% of aluminum from food or water that passes through the gut is actually absorbed and metabolically available.
The other flawed thinker who ignores this reality, and ignores the importance of acute toxicity of aluminum, is Paul Offit.
Thanks to Skeptical Raptor, All Forms of Aluminum are Now Magically The Same
Then SR makes this incomprehensibly incorrect claim:
“All aluminum is the same, whether from vaccines or pure breast milk from an organically fed mom. I tires of these arguments from science deniers that try to claim that one molecule has some ridiculous difference than another.”
This is why we don’t rely on Skeptical Raptor for anything.
Once Skeptical Raptor wrote his blog, all forms of aluminum, such as aluminum hydroxide, aluminum chloride, aluminum lactate, aluminum phosphate, and aluminum nitrate are magically became biologically identical and now have identical toxicity. This study was also immediately proven wrong:
“Three major forms of aluminum adjuvants with substantially different physical and chemical properties have been described: aluminum phosphate (AlPO(4)), aluminum hydroxide (AlOH) and amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (AAHS)…” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/6256541_Effect_of_Alternative_Aluminum_Adjuvants_on_the_Absorption_and_Immunogenicity_of_HPV16_L1_VLPs_in_Mice
If Skeptical Raptor is this wrong on one of the most important vaccine additives, was else is he wrong about?
A billion times more importantly: If HHS/ATSDR/FDA can be so wrong about aluminum pediatric dosing of aluminum, what else have they been wrong about?
BTW, I’m not “Anti-vaccine” as Skeptical Raptor needs me to be. I am for safer means of artificial immunization. And I, not SR, nor anyone else, speaks for me.
I am Vaccine Risk Aware and refuse to deny vaccine injury, because to deny vaccine injury is both cruel and unscientific.
