I started down a different road this morning, eager to tell you all about how the polysorbate 80 in the DTaP is causing the rising sunflower seed allergy. Have you ever felt patronized by a vaccine article when the author tried to empathize with how “scary” the ingredients list must look to laypeople? In my research I had to stop and look up so many things that now you’re instead being treated to a post about everything in the DTaP vaccine, so feel free to enjoy this as much as humanly possible. All ingredients are taken directly from the CDC excipient list, which is still information I’m shocked is even provided to us.
Polysorbate 80: also known as Tween 80, this is an emulsifier used to keep liquids mixed in ice cream, vitamins, and the DTaP, Tdap, Hep A, flu, Gardasil, and meningococcal vaccines. It’s made from oleic acid with the trade name “Extra Olein 99.” Super news! Extra Olein 99 is made from the garbage disposal of wildflowers: sunflower seeds. The great soil cleaners are known to suck lead right out of the dirt, known to store cancer-causing cadmium and copper in the seeds. In fact, women with breast cancer are told not to eat sunflower seed oil because it causes mammary tumors.
