LOS ANGELES, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aluminum has been recognized as a neurotoxic ingredient by leading researchers and scientists across the globe. So why do babies in the U.S. receive up to 4,925 micrograms (mcg) of aluminum within the first 18 months, and an additional 170 to 625 mcg by the age of 6 through routine vaccinations? Aluminum has been used as a vaccine adjuvant (a substance that enhances the body's immune response) since the 1920's but has only been tested one time, on two rabbits. Their remains have since disappeared.
Injecting Aluminum, a new documentary by French journalist Marie-Ange Poyet, investigates the history of aluminum in vaccines and its potentially devastating effects on the human body. Injecting Aluminum was released this week on DVD and on Streaming platforms by Cinema Libre Studio.
SYNOPSIS: In the early 90s, a mysterious muscular disease with symptoms that included severe muscle and joint pain began to surface among patients in France. Doctors in Paris discovered that these patients had developed a new disease called Macrophagic Myofascitis, or MMF, which occurs when the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant from a vaccine remains embedded in the muscle tissue.
What the pharmaceutical companies don't reveal is that the aluminum adjuvant was never rigorously tested before going on the market and there are alternative, much less toxic, adjuvants available.
Featuring interviews with patients, doctors, scientists, and influential politicians, Injecting Aluminum examines aluminum's devastating effects on the human body and calls into question the public health policies around aluminum in vaccines.
Directed by Marie-Ange Poyet, Injecting Aluminum features groundbreaking interviews with leading aluminum specialists such as "Mr. Aluminum", Dr. Christopher Exley, PhD in the Ecotoxicology of Aluminum, Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld, founder of the leading Centre for Autoimmune Diseases at the Sheba Medical Center, Dr. Romain Gherardi, the Director of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, and Dr. Jérôme Authier, neurologist and head of the Center of Reference of neuromuscular diseases of the Henri Mondor Hospital in Créteil, France.
Injecting Aluminum has a running time of 90 minutes, and is not rated.
