Study: Vaccines Found to be Deliberately Formulated with Hundreds of Cancer Genes to Ensure Repeat Business for Big Pharma

Groundbreaking research out of Italy has uncovered shocking new details about the aborted human fetal cell lines that are used in many of today’s childhood vaccines. As reported by Children’s Health Defense (CHD), a group known as Corvelva discovered that the original MRC-5 aborted baby cell line from which vaccines are still made today is derived from the entire human genome of an aborted male baby with “abnormal” genes. As it turns ...
