GULF WAR CORRELATION (from above link)
In science, a correlation does not prove causation. A correlation, however, is grounds to investigate causation, which has led to some troubling data.
After the first Gulf War, many U.S. and British military personnel said they became sick after receiving anthrax immunizations. Scientists at Tulane University Medical School developed an assay showing a correlation between illness and antibodies to squalene. Although this data did not prove conclusively that Gulf War troops were injected with squalene, the data indicated that injection was the only way to develop these antibodies; the implication being that troops had been injected with a squalene-based adjuvant. This coincided with the fact that at the time, U.S. Army scientists had developed several new and theoretically improved anthrax vaccines that provided more immunity than the licensed vaccine; and did so in less time and with fewer shots. All these new anthrax vaccines contained squalene. I interviewed dozens of Gulf War veterans whose mysterious undiagnosable illnesses were later diagnosed by civilian physicians as autoimmune. Of the sick Gulf War veterans tested by Tulane's scientists, 95% had antibodies to squalene. Tulane's data showed another correlation, and this one concerned them even more. Veterans who never deployed to the Gulf had developed chronic and debilitating illnesses too - 100% of sick,non-deployed veterans tested by Tulane had anti-squalene antibodies. When Tulane tested healthy veterans, they found that 0% had the antibodies; that's zero percent.  Formation of Cysts from Squalene Adjuvant?
In 1998, active duty military personnel deploying to an AOR (Area of Responsibility), which included Saudi Arabia and South Korea, were injected with anthrax vaccine. Many personnel reported sickness after their immunizations, which were later determined by FDA testing to contain trace quantities of squalene. The Department of Defense and the FDA stated that these quantities were too small to harm anyone and that the nanogram quantities of squalene in the vaccine probably came from the eggs in which germs for vaccines are grown. There was a problem with this explanation. Viruses are grown in eggs; bacteria are not. Anthrax is a bacteria. Then the DOD and FDA suggested the squalene came from the bacteria itself. However, scientists had analyzed Bacillus anthracis and proven that it does not produce squalene. DOD then offered a third explanation: the oils in human skin contain squalene; someone's hands must've contaminated the vaccine. The problem with that explanation was that vaccine workers wear gloves and hats and booties. The other problem is that oil and water don't mix. Nevertheless, trace quantities of squalene had been emulsified in millions of vaccine doses. It wasn't found smeared on the exterior of glass ware. It was in the vaccine. Special detergents must be added to an oil to break it down sufficiently to mix it with water. What DOD and the FDA left out of their explanations was this. In 1998, the DOD, FDA and NIH formed a Special Working Group to accelerate the development of the Army's new anthrax vaccine containing squalene. Also that year, NIH scientists published data, which indicated, they said, that animals can become "tolerized" to squalene with micro-dosages. Coincidentally, nanogram doses of squalene, parts per billion, appeared in the military's anthrax vaccine supply that same year, in 1998.  Formation of Cysts from Squalene Adjuvant?
Military personnel injected with anthrax vaccine containing squalene have been reporting that they developed cysts, appearing all over their bodies. Among the first to report this were Air Force personnel at Dover Air Force Based in Delaware, which had received at least four lots of anthrax vaccine containing squalene. One fellow developed cysts all over his body, including his pericardium. Another fellow developed them on his spinal cord. These cysts were similar to those in British civilians injected with the flu vaccine containing mineral oil, because they were "sterile" - they were not associated with viral or bacterial infection.

TWO LAST CORRELATIONS
Department of Defense and Health and Human Services regulations permit the administration of experimental drugs and vaccines to U.S. military personnel without informed consent. In contravention of the principles memorialized in the Nuremberg Code, the administration of Invesigational New Drugs (INDs) can be done covertly, in clinical trials that are classified. This is stated in unclassified documents issued by the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services.  Formation of Cysts from Squalene Adjuvant?
Since the early 1950s, U.S. military scientists - working in cooperation with scientists with the NIH, FDA, and U.S. Public Health Service - have been testing cyst-producing oil-based vaccine adjuvants on U.S. military personnel.  Formation of Cysts from Squalene Adjuvant?
I discuss the British findings, briefly, in Chapter Twelve, pg 250. A highly regarded British laboratory, Scientific Analyses Ltd. (SAL Ltd.) in Manchester, tested samples of British-made anthrax vaccine for the Granada Television network and found a thirty-six parts per billion concentration of squalene in two lots of the British vaccine. That is a fairly close match for the concentration found in one of the five lots confirmed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to contain squalene. Lot #FAV 043, according to the FDA, contained forty parts per billion. What is also noteworthy is the specific test used by SAL Ltd. to detect squalene in anthrax vaccine: flame ionization/gas chromatography. This is the same test used by the FDA. Interestingly, a laboratory the U.S. Army sub-contracted to test the vaccine, SRI, used a much less sensitive analysis called liquid chromatography, which would have been incapable of finding squalene in the concentrations present in either the U.S. or British anthrax vaccines. SRI has a long business association with the Department of Defense and an unanswered question is whether SRI deliberately chose to use a test that would invariably fail to find low concentrations squalene in the vaccine and thus allow the U.S. Department of Defense to declare its anthrax vaccine squalene-free, which it did.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, which is part of the United Nations, scientists from the organization are developing vaccines specifically to damage fertility as a method of contraception. A suggested ingredient for the vaccine is tween 80 (polysorbate 80): “In a preferred embodiment the vaccine comprises oil, preferably a biodegradable oil such as squalene oil. Typically, the vaccine is prepared using an adjuvant concentrate which contains lecithin in squalene oil. The aqueous solution glycoprotein is typically a phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) solution, and additionally preferably contains Tween 80.” (Fertility Impairing Vaccine And Methods of Use’ This application claims the benefit of U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/070,375, filed January 2,1998, U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/071,406, filed January 15,1998.) Exploring Vaccines
Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That's Killing Our Soldiers and Why GIs Are Only the First Victims By Gary Matsumoto
1. Many new vaccines feature recombinant DNA. One piece of a deadly germ is inserted or spliced into other organisms, creating bio-engineered microbial molecules. To prompt the body to create antibodies to these recombinants, scientists have created deadly oil-based vaccine additives called adjuvants. Oil-based adjuvants cause extreme inflammation and animals injected with them always develop painful, incurable auto-immune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus.
2. Since Gulf War I, the military has been secretly putting an oil-based adjuvant called SQUALENE into certain experimental lots of military vaccines. Just like lab animals, thousands of soldiers given SQUALENE- laced vaccines have developed disabling auto-immune diseases. Independent researchers have found SQUALENE antibodies in these sick soldiers. In 2005, the military admitted that 1,200 military personnel who received anthrax vaccine before going to Iraq recently developed serious illnesses, including memory loss and chronic fatigue.
3. The military and federal health agencies have long kept their SQUALENE experiments on U.S. military troops secret because they know that oil-based adjuvants wreak havoc with immune function, causing the body to attack itself. Matsumoto documents how federal and military officials have often been caught lying about the SQUALENE in military vaccines.
4. Matsumoto warns that the National Institutes of Health has funded production of new vaccines for flu, human papilloma virus, malaria, HIV and herpes that also contain SQUALENE. The federal government has been running human clinical tests on these new commercial vaccines and test subjects have not been properly informed of the grave health dangers. Researchers have even found SQUALENE in some of the older vaccines containing tetanus and diphtheria toxoids. Should we wonder why auto-immune diseases like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are now rampant?
5. The Bush administration is funding development of new bio-warfare vaccines that will also contain oil- based SQUALENE adjuvants like MF59 or MPL. Because federal officials know that these vaccines may cause disability or death, legislation to protect vaccine makers from lawsuits is expected to be passed by Congress before the end of 2005.* If you become chronically ill from these vaccines, tough luck!

…Our demonstration that an autoadjuvant can trigger chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation may give clues to the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis, and it raises new questions concerning the role of endogenous molecules with adjuvant properties in chronic inflammatory diseases.
