Today I’ll look into the statement “I also know that the ingredients L-Histidine and Polysorbate 80 piggyback the aluminium adjuvant (microsplinters) across the blood/brain barrier where they lodge permanently in the brain tissue. Those ingredients also strip the myelin coating off nerve cells and cause loss to varying degrees of nerve-cell signal transmission. This is what causes loss of sensation in the extremities reported widely.”
part 1 | part 2 | part 3 | part 4 | part 5
The first thing I did was to search and see if there are any references at all online for “adjuvant microsplinters”. I found literally zero pages that had the two words on the same page. Within a few days, I guess this article will be the only one.
Before I get started, there is a misunderstanding here – even if L-Histidine, Polysorbate 80 and the adjuvant were to get through the blood brain barrier together, it would not be the histidine and P80 piggy-backing the adjuvant. It would be the adjuvant and the histidine piggybacking the P80. Polysorbate 80 is a known “key” to the blood-brain barrier door.
I already discussed L-Histidine in general, but this statement specifically states that L-Histidine lodges permanently in brain tissue, strips myelin from nerves and causes loss of sensation. Heavy words. L-Histidine (also known as Histidine) does not do any of this.
First off, it is already in the brain. Histidine is a precuror molecule to histamine, which is a neurotransmitter. You actually need histidine in your brain for it to function.
If your brain doesn’t get histidine, this can cause anxiety.
If you increase the amount of histidine in your brain, it can actually counteract fatigue and make you more alert and quicker at thinking.
To be afraid of having L-Histidine in your brain is like being afraid of having nerves in your brain.
To say that L-Histidine can “strip the myelin off nerve cells” is actually the complete opposite of what it does! “Histidine is a semi-essential amino acid (children should obtain it from food) needed in humans for growth and tissue repair, Histidine is important for maintenance of myelin sheaths that protect nerve cells and is metabolized to the neurotransmitter histamine. Histamines play many roles in immunity, gastric secretion, and sexual functions. Histidine is also required for blood cell manufacture and protects tissues against damage caused by radiation and heavy metals.”
I found a paper from 1973 where rabbits were injected with doses varying from 62-1500 mg/kg, straight into the brain. No side-effects were noted. The histamine content of the brain rose as the histidine was converted, but there were not side-effects.
The equivalent dosages here in a 70kg human are 4.34g to 105g. Straight into the brain. With no side-effects. Gardasil only has 0.78mg of histadine. That’s 134615 times smaller than 105g. The L-Histidine in Gardasil is not dangerous, either to the body, or to the brain.
Polysorbate 80 is also known as Tween-80 (or P80). As already discussed, it is an emulsifier that is commonly used in food. But for this article, we are looking at what effect it has on the brain.
Tween 80 can be used to help deliver drugs to the brain, as it acts kind of like someone carrying a box in through a door – you can imagine them opening the door with a hand, then pushing the door open while backing in with the box. In this case, the door is the blood-brain barrier (BBB), and the box is the drug payload.
The BBB’s “door” is hard to open. Even though P80 can open the door, it still takes a certain concentration of it to do so. That concentration has been measured as 3mg/kg (3mg of P80 per 1kg of body weight)
P80 causes brain-blood barrier disturbance (it opens the door) at a rate of 3mg/kg. In a 70kg human, you would need 210mg. Gardasil contains 0.05mg of P80. That’s 4200 times too small. The P80 in Gardasil is not enough to open the blood brain barrier.
But, let’s assume it somehow got through and is now in the brain itself. What effect does P80 have on the brain?
Most research into P80 and the brain has to do with whatever P80 is helping across the BBB. I could not find anything that was specifically about P80 and not its payload. Even the anti-vax websites all talked about the payload and not P80 itself. And I certainly couldn’t find anything suggesting that Polysorbate 80 had any effect at all on myelin.
Aluminium Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate
The aluminium (Al) in Gardasil is in the form Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate.
A lot of the scare stories I saw on anti-vax websites about the aluminium in Gardasil are about aluminium oxyhydroxide. Aluminium oxyhydroxide and aluminum hydrophosphate are not the same. They don’t act the same. They’re not even the same size!
Aluminium oxyhydroxide particles tend to form clumps about 0.96μm in size, while Aluminium hydrophosphate particles clump at around 1.31μm. The clumps are always globular in shape, never “microsplinter” shaped. See the images here for example.
A comparative study of the ultimate fate of aluminium-based adjuvants found that High loading of aluminium oxyhydroxide in the cytoplasm of THP-1 cells without immediate cytotoxicity might predispose this form of aluminium adjuvant to its subsequent transport throughout the body including access to the brain”. That’s aluminium oxyhydroxide. Not hydrophosphate. They are different adjuvants.
When injections of the various adjuvants were tested, it was found that “Mass spectrometry analyses of digested tissues identified higher aluminium concentrations in the kidneys with the lowest concentration found in the brain. The dissolution of Adju-Phos® however, was found to be more rapid than that for Alhydrogel® with higher Al concentrations noted in the surrounding tissues, probably owing to the amorphous nature of the former”, and “elevated Al concentrations were found in both urine and tissue samples”. In other words, no microsplinters. The hydrophosphate form of adjuvant broken down quite quickly and was dissolved out into surrounding tissues and eventually pissed out.
A paper that I see frequently referenced on anti-vax websites is Biopersistence and Brain Translocation of Aluminum Adjuvants of Vaccines. The article mentions that Alum crystals come in mostly three forms, oxyhydroxide/hydroxyphosphate/phosphate, but writes as if they are all the same. In fact, the first three words of the paper “Aluminum oxyhydroxide (alum)” mean that when he writes “alum”, he is specifically talking about the oxyhydroxide form, not the others.
The idea that aluminium can “lodge permanently in the brain tissue” is true. It’s known to happen even in the absence of vaccines. There is no single average density of aluminium to brain matter, as the amount increases with age.
Too much aluminium in the brain is linked to various conditions, such as Alzheimers (2.98 μg/g) in a case where the aluminium was accumulated over time, or death (0.97 μg/g) when it’s accumulated all at once. It has also been associated with autism (3-8 μg/g). This document has a number of other figures: “Alzheimer’s disease (up to 11.5 μg/g dry wt); dialysis encephalopathy (up to 14.1 μg/g dry wt); congophilic amyloid angiopathy (up to 23.0 μg/g dry wt); and various
aluminium-related encephalopathies (up to 47.4 μg/g dry wt).”
That last document had the phrase “piggy-back” in it, by the way, so I wonder if that’s where the idea of P80 and histidine piggybacking on Al came from? In this case, it says “Under conditions of chronic exposure to aluminium, the selectivity of the blood-brain barrier may not be seriously compromised, and aluminium will gain entry to the brain by piggy-backing upon normal transport mechanisms as well as through more indirect processes such as residual leakiness and fluid phase endocytosis”. “Chronic” is very important there.
It is also known that aluminium can help cause oxidative effects on myelin, so that part is true as well.
But how much aluminium is in the brain already, and how much does a shot of Gardasil add to that?
60 brains were donated to a study on aging. The average Al load of the brains was 1.05 μg/g. As these were all otherwise healthy (apart from the being dead bit) brains of people that died at an advanced age, 1.05 μg/g can be considered the “normal” density of aluminium to brain.
The average human brain weighs about 1.3kg. That means there is about 1.365mg of aluminium in the brain of an aged adult human.
The chemical formula for Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate is AlHO9PS-3. The relative weights of the chemicals are Al=26.981, H=1.007, Oxygen=15.999(*9), Phosphorous=30.973, Sulphur=32.059(*3), so there’s a ratio 26.981:299.129 aluminium to aluminium hydrophosphate sulfate.
There’s 225μg of Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate in Gardasil, which contains 20.29μg of aluminium.
20.29μg is 67.27 times smaller than 1.365. So even if you were to inject the entire Gardasil dose straight into the brain, you would increase the brain’s aluminium content by only 1.49%.
Of course, when you vaccinate yourself, the contents of the vaccine doesn’t just automatically go straight to the brain. It spreads through the blood-stream to the whole of the body before being mostly pissed straight out.
If you divide the weight of the brain into 70kg, you get 53.85. That means that you can expect at most 1/53.85th of the vaccine to get through the blood-brain-barrier (assuming that 100% of the vaccine that ends up knocking at the door gets in). That means the amount of aluminium in the brain goes up by even a smaller amount. Instead of increasing by 20.29μg, we increase by 0.38μg, or 0.027%.
The idea that increasing the existing aluminium load of the brain by 0.027% will suddenly cause it to strip myelin and cause loss of sensation, etc – that’s absurd.
In the next article, I’ll tackle this: “It can and does affect some people to a greater degree by stopping the autonomic nervous system from working properly, leading to respiratory and cardiac system failure and death”
