FLU SHOTS ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE FLU
Although your doctor will probably try to convince you otherwise, many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than from the flu itself. Each year, just after hyping the upcoming flu season as, "THE WORST EVER" (even before it starts), the government's annual campaign for flu vaccinations is kicked off in full force. Flu shot anyone? Let's look at just a few of the reasons that you and your family should not fall prey to this hype.
1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children benefit from flu shots. How do we know this? A systematic 'Cochrane Review' of 51 studies, over a forty year period, involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. Gulp! Same is true for old folks as well (HERE).
2.) Medical journals have published numerous studies revealing that injecting vaccines can actually lead to serious health problems including harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections. This further increases the body’s susceptibility to the very diseases that the vaccine was supposed to protect against.
3.) Ever noticed how within days of getting shots, vaccinated people develop runny noses, pneumonia, ear infections and / or bronchitis? This is because even though Flu Shots do not technically cause "The Flu", they do cause "Flu-like Symptoms" --- which are calculated into Flu Statistics just like The Flu. (SEE YESTERDAY'S BLOG POST)
4.) Its a known fact that FLU VACCINES contain strains of the flu virus along with lots of other "fun" ingredients. Now, think about the impact such a vaccine can have over someone with a suppressed immune system (DYSBIOSIS, for instance)? If you have a disease that is already lowering your body’s ability to fight a virus, taking the flu shot will put your body in danger of getting the full effects of the flu, making you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases. Interesting how the CDC fails to mention these common sense facts. Some of the ingredients contained in Flu Shots are so shocking that it is difficult to comprehend why they are in there in the first place (THIMEROSAL, for instance ---- or Phenol & Ethylene Glycol).
5.) The Flu Vaccine contains both mercury (THIMEROSAL) --- a heavy metal known to be the single most toxic non-radioactive element on the planet, and aluminum ---- an element that is and has been (for a long time) associated with Alzheimer's Disease. The amount of mercury contained in a flu shot is much higher than the FDA's maximum allowable daily exposure limit. Mercury toxicity can cause memory loss, depression, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more serious health problems --- particularly of the Neuro-Degeneratinve sort. In fact, there is ample evidence to believe that flu shots can cause Alzheimer’s Disease as well! One peer-reviewed scientific study shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots (HERE).
6.) The Center for Disease Control appoints a 15-member Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This committee is responsible for deciding who should be vaccinated each year (their goal is always 100% of the population, although rates are falling instead of rising). Another of our government's dirty little secrets, is that almost all the ACIP have a financial interest in immunizations. Hey, read about John Rockefeller's lucrative foray into the vaccine business a century ago. It’s always been all about the money ---- having very little to do with your health and well being (HERE)! The very people pushing these vaccines the hardest stand to make millions (maybe even billions) of dollars. This itself creates a doubt on how effective these flu vaccines really are. If you do not think that Drug Companies will do anything (and I do mean anything) for financial gain, you are suffering from severe delusions. It was not long ago, that I blogged about two such multi-billion dollar fiascos by pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer (SEE HERE). All of this is why there is really no such thing as EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE.
7.) It is a well known fact that the shots are only able to protect against certain strains of the virus, which means that if you come into contact with a different strain you will still get the flu. Targeted vaccines only work against the target. If the CDC guesses wrong (which is more common than not because of increasingly rapid viral mutation patterns), the vaccine is all but 100% ineffective (HERE). Actually I am exaggerating. If you look at YESTERDAY'S BLOG by Ed Yazbak, MD, you see that the actual number is less than 8%.
8.) Does anyone remember the old adage, "Figures Never Lie, but Liars Figure"? This is the only constant when trying to decipher what is actually true about the Flu as well as the Flu Vaccine. How effective is it? Who really knows; but according to the research, not very. How dangerous is the Flu? Unless you are in poor health already, not very. However, if you spent much time listening to the CDC's current wave of "Flu Propaganda", you would think that the Flu was Black Death. My suggestion to you is to do some serious research into this and other vaccines. The choice to be vaccinated (or have your children vaccinated) it yours and yours alone. My advice is to weigh the pros and cons so that you can make an educated decision based on facts instead of fear. For all of our VACCINE POSTS, just follow the link.
