MORE SIDE EFFECTS OF FLU SHOTS
I have been warning people about the crazy SIDE EFFECTS OF THE FLU SHOT since I started practice in early 1992. Unfortunately, these side effects have been blown off and pooh poohed by much of the medical community as rare and unimportant. Besides fun things like ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, we can add yet another side effect to the list. How would you like to have narcolepsy for the rest of your life? What is narcolepsy? According to a popular online encyclopedia,
The crazy thing about Narcolepsy is that it tends to be associated with a group of three other things besides the EDS. These include "Cataplexy" (a compete loss of muscle tone triggered by various emotional events), "Sleep Paralysis" (a total loss of muscular control and strength that occurs in the transition between wakefulness and sleep or visa versa), and Hallucinations (these might be better classified as extremely vivid night terrors). Thanks to flu shots made by GLAXOSMITHKLINE and given for the H1N1 Swine Flu in 2009, at least 800 European children have been diagnosed with Narcolepsy --- particularly in Sweden. GSK's Chief Medical Officer / Vaccine Division said that their company is, "absolutely committed to getting to the bottom of this" while denying the vaccine was the cause of the problem. EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE is such a wonderful thing, isn't it?
Teams of scientists working independently from each in Sweden, Finland, and Ireland have published studies that show Narcolepsy rates were 7 to 13 times higher in vaccinated children than unactivated children. This increases the incidence of contracting Narcolepsy from about one in every 2,000 children to as many as one in every 140 children. What is life like for a child with Narcolepsy? Let me just say that thoughts of suicide are a common.
Many cannot function in school anymore, and those who do go to school, cannot get by without taking a host of drugs (RITALIN -- a legalized form of Meth, sleeping pills, ANTI-DEPRESSANTS, etc). They fall asleep at the drop of a hat --- anywhere. They have night terrors caused by the persistent hallucinations. They have a total loss of muscle control (weakness / collapse) brought on by laughter, having fun, being sad, or other intense, every-day, emotional responses. And the kicker is that there is no cure --- it's forever.
I am not going to lie to you --- the flu is a bummer. And these Flu Pandemics have the potential to be severe (the Swine Flu Pandemic of 1918 killed between 20 and 100 million people, depending on whose statistics you believe -- HERE). Just realize that with modern medicine, the threat of dying of a Flu Pandemic is small --- particularly in America (HERE). The threat of the accumulative neurotoxic effects of decades of flu shots is not (HERE).
