What do Polysorbate 80 and Octoxynol 10 have in common? They both cause infertility and they are both in many vaccines.
According to the California Teratogen Information Service (CTIS) Pregnancy Health Information Line, there are many factors that can cause a man to be infertile and as around half of all infertility cases result from the man, it is important to properly study the causes.
Previous studies have found that radiation and electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and computers have been linked to infertility or sub-fertility as well as chemicals, including heavy metals and solvents, heat and pressure (such as hot baths and tight underwear), environmental pollution, cigarette smoking and sexually transmitted diseases.
But in their summary of different causes of infertility, they forgot one: vaccines.
Fertility has been declining rapidly since the 1950s in all countries of the world and the start of the change coincided with the introduction of the first mass vaccination programs. For instance, in the UK in 1947, a mass DPT vaccine campaign was initiated and in 1958, the first polio and diphtheria vaccines were brought in on a mass scale for all people under 15 years old.
Spermicide in Vaccines
Vaccines contain many ingredients that are potentially damaging to fertility including detergents like triton X-100, also known as octoxynol 10 which is a known spermicide and has been used in experiments to “strip” sperm so that they are no longer capable of fertilizing an egg. In a 1977 study in the Journal of Reproduction and Fertility, triton X-100 was listed in a table of “most potent spermicides” that would produce 100% stripping of human sperm and the dosages needed for such an effect.
Octoxynol 10 (Triton X-100) is contained in vaccines. The data sheet for Fluarix vaccine says:
“FLUARIX (influenza virus vaccine) does not contain thimerosal. Each 0.5-mL dose also contains octoxynol-10 (TRITON® X-100) ≤ 0.085 mg, α-tocopheryl hydrogen succinate ≤ 0.1 mg, and polysorbate 80 (Tween 80) ≤ 0.415 mg.”
It is also in other flu vaccines such as pandemrix and vaxigrip vaccines.
