Anaphylactic children: Canaries in the mine shaft of public health

We were warned in 1913. Now millions suffer lifelong, vaccine-induced allergies from the complications of injected, cross-reacting proteins by VacLib

Rita Hoffman of Canada is the mother of a vaccine-damaged child whose condition is described as "anaphylaxis"—a hyper-sensitive state that is epidemic among children who, according to Hoffman, " every day of their lives under threat of death from everyday, normally harmless substances."

After three years of gathering information, Hoffman found that it has been known since 1913 that the injection of alien proteins can cause anaphylaxis. In fact, French physiologist Charles Robert Richet won a Nobel Prize in 1913 when he coined the term "anaphylaxis" to describe the sometimes fatal reaction of a sensitized individual to a second injection of an antigen.

Richet’s Nobel Prize-winning research paved the way to understanding how hay fever, asthma and other allergic reactions can be triggered when the body is injected with foreign substances. His work also helped physicians to explain cases of sudden death that had previously been unexplainable.

"All [injected] proteins, without exception, produce anaphylaxis: One had seen this with all sera, milks, organic extracts whatsoever, all vegetable extracts, microbial protein toxins, yeast cells, dead microbial bodies. It would be of more interest now to find a protein which does not produce anaphylaxis than to find one that does," Richet observed.

But the vaccine industry has chosen to ignore this work and has convinced governments to inject children with more and more foreign proteins by "recommending" ever-increasing numbers of vaccines to be administered to them.

Hoffman quoted Health Canada as stating, "It is estimated that 600,000 Canadians (two percent of the population) may be affected by life-threatening allergies, and the numbers are increasing, especially among children."

Edda West of Canada’s Vaccine Risk Awareness Network reported in the group’s Winter/Spring, 2006 newsletter the heartwrenching case of an 18-month old who received six vaccines in four shots during one visit to the "doctor." By the time all four injections had been administered, the little boy "was salivating, pointing to his neck and playing with his tongue—then his eyes started to roll back at which point she [the nurse] injected him with epinephrine."

The epinephrine was administered to address the anaphylactic shock the innocent little toddler experienced as an immediate and direct result of being injected with four live-virus vaccines.

Absent a miracle and the successful outcome of intense nutritional, homeopathic and chelation therapies, this little boy will spend the rest of his life one allergic response away from death.

If we apply the two-percent figure to Americans, we can estimate that nearly 6 million are afflicted with "life-threatening allergies."

Reuters reported March 31, 2005, that "allergies such as hay fever are reaching epidemic proportions in Europe" and "Around one-third of the European population has some kind of allergy while one in two children in Britain will have allergies by 2015."

Further, the skin condition eczema afflicts between two and five million Canadians. According to a Toronto Star article from May 5, 2005, "Experts report its incidence has tripled since 1970."

One of the strangest allergy "epidemics" in the vaccination-obsessed western world is the number of people allergic to peanuts—rates that are not being noticed in certain countries where peanuts are consumed in quantities ranging from zero to lots. Hoffman’s research allowed her to make the following statement: "It appears that countries that introduced the Hib [haemophilus influenza type B] vaccination in their infant schedules have high rates of peanut allergy regardless of consumption."

Deeper research into the Hib vaccine gives us clues as to why this vaccine could be cross-reacting with peanuts. It is known that foods of the same molecular weight can cause cross reactions in allergic persons. In January, 2002, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology published a list of foods that are cross-reactive with latex (allergy to latex, particularly among highly-vaccinated medical professionals, is increasing). The list includes banana, avocado, chestnut, kiwi and celery. "The immune system recognizes the ‘cross-reactive’ protein, symptoms manifest and an adverse reaction occurs. An active immune system may not distinguish the difference between the similar looking proteins so an allergy to one member of the food family may result in the person being allergic to all the members of the same group," the academy observed.

A study in 2001 revealed that "[n]atural rubber [latex] vial closures released allergenic latex proteins into the tested solutions in direct contact during storage in sufficient quantities to elicit positive intradermal skin reactions in some individuals with L.A. [latex allergy]."

Following this line of biochemical logic, Hoffman researched the molecular weights of ingredients in childhood vaccines and some of the foods most commonly associated with childhood allergies. (see chart below).

This area of research should have begun circa 1913, but cannot be found in the medical literature. With what we do know about anaphylaxis and cross-reactive proteins, we can now follow Hoffman’s model by identifying the molecular weights of foreign proteins comprising vaccines and check them against the molecular weights of the foods we eat to predict allergenic responses.

Hoffman spent three years researching medical literature to prove her thesis in this groundbreaking, 4,600-word article that contains 68 references. The article is available in its entirety at

Molecular weight of proteins in Vaccines

Hib: 50, 49, 43, 37, 20, 16, kDa

Diphtheria: 50, 27 kDa

Tetanus: 50 kDa

Neisseria meningitis: 50 kDa

Molecular weight of food proteins commonly associated with allergies

Peanut: 50, 43, 20, 16 kDa

Almond: 50, 37 kDa

Soybean: 50, 16.5 kDa

Cashew: 50 kDa

Mango: 49 kDa

(kDa= "kilodalton")

(The 50 kDa proteins in the Diphtheria, Tetanus and Neisseria meningitis vaccines are also used as carrier proteins for the Hib vaccine)
