The TRUTH About Flu Shots! Do They Work?
When the flu epidemic hit the world in 1918 over 40 million people died. Immunization is not the answer and flu vaccines do not work.
Several weeks ago I went to a local store and they were providing flu shots in the lobby. Last week I was in Chicago airport and they were giving shots at the airport. When I was at the store I asked if the shots contained mercury, the nurse assured me they did not. I then asked if I could look at the label. Sure enough each shot contains 25mcg's of mercury. It's amazing the nurse didn't even know what she was injecting. Now with even more uncertainty the Ebola Vaccine is being RUSHED through production and loosely deemed safe for our families.
However in a recent study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu appeared to have zero impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctors visits during two recent flu seasons.
Additionally a Group Health study found that flu shots do not protect elderly people against getting pneumonia, which is the primary cause of death resulting as a complication of the flu. Others have questioned whether there is any mortality benefit with influenza vaccination. Vaccination coverage among the elderly increased from 15% in 1980 to 65% now, but there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza or pneumonia. So basically it doesn't protect against pneumonia nor does it decrease death rates.
Also there is some evidence that flu shots cause Alzheimer's disease. Most likely this is a result of combining mercury with aluminum and formaldehyde. Mercury in vaccines has also been implicated as a cause of Autism. I have warned you for many years about the dangers of mercury and aluminum.
By the way, other serious and adverse reactions to the flu vaccine are joint inflammation and arthritis, anaphylactic shock (and other life threatening allergic reactions) and Guillain-Barre' syndrome a paralytic auto-immune disease, plus an increase in Senile Dementia.
One theory that explains the seasonal nature of flu is that influenza is a vitamin D deficiency disease, I believe this may be a primary factor.
Vitamin D levels in your body fall to their lowest point during flu seasons. Unable to be protected by the body's own antibiotics (auto microbial peptides) that are released by vitamin D, a person with a low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections.
Studies show that children with rickets, a vitamin D-deficient skeletal disorder, suffer from frequent respiratory infections and MS later on in life, and children exposed to sunlight are less likely to get a cold. The increased number of deaths that occur in winter, largely from pneumonia and cardiovascular diseases, are most likely due to vitamin D deficiency. By the way, several years ago I tore a rotator cuff, and then I ended up with a bone spur, when I increased my D and calcium my bone spur basically disappeared in two weeks.
Unfortunately, now, for the first time, flu vaccinations are also being pushed for virtually all children, not just those under 5. I am diametrically opposed to this treatment protocol. Previously, flu vaccines were recommended for children under 5. This year the government is recommending that children over 6 months to 18 years be vaccinated, expanding inoculation to 30 million more school-age children.
Of course, this ridiculous policy ignores the fact that a systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo.
Interestingly enough, back in 2005, The Federal Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that all children between 6 months and 5 years old receive flu shots each year. Now they have expanded their guidelines to include children up to 18 years, which means everyone except those between the ages of 19-49, who are in good health, are urged to get a flu shot.
By the way, a majority of the ACIP members who came up with these guidelines have financial ties to the vaccine industry, and stand to gain personally for every additional person getting a yearly injection. It's actually the only explanation that makes any sense for recommendations as insane as these. It is ridiculous how the pharmaceutical industry is tied to constant "payoff" and "incentive" to promote drug use.
Three reasons to reconsider flu shots:
There are three major reasons why this government pushes to vaccinate 84% of the U.S. population with a yearly flu vaccine, is so incomprehensible.
1. The majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury; an amount considered unsafe for anyone weighing less than 550 pounds! And which groups are most sensitive to the neurological damage that has been associated with mercury, infants, children, and the elderly. I have told you for years that I believe mercury and vaccines are also linked to autism and learning disabilities.
2. No studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly, yet this is one of the key groups in which they are pushed.
3. If you get a flu shot, you can still get the flu (or flu like symptoms). This is because it only protects against certain strains, and it is anyone's guess which flu viruses will be in your area. I have spoken to so many people who have gotten the flu after taking the shot.
So why would you take a flu shot EVERY YEAR that has NEVER been proven to be effective, that can give you the very illness you are trying to prevent, and has potentially long-term side effects that are far worse than the flu itself?
Government and pharmaceutical corporations who are controlled by big banks have done an excellent job of instilling fear into the population so they believe that they must get a shot to stay healthy, but the simple reality is its doing more harm than good. It's ridiculous how many people only get their news from the television, which again is controlled by the big banking, which basically owns the station and the drug companies.
Plus there have been several examples in past years where government health officials have chosen the incorrect influenza strains for that year's vaccine. In 2004, the National Vaccine Information Center described how CDC officials told everyone to line up for a flu shot that didn't even contain the influenza strain causing most of the flu that year. How stupid is that! Let's inject mercury into the population for no reason!
Two thirds of this year's flu vaccine contains a full dose of mercury!
According to Dr. Donald Miller, MD, two thirds of this year's flu vaccine contains 25 micrograms of thimerosal. Thimerosal is 49 percent mercury by weight.
Each dose of these flu vaccines contains more than 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency's safety limit for mercury.
By now, most people are well aware that children and fetuses are most at risk of damage from this neurotoxin, as their brains are still developing. Yet the CDC still recommends that children over 6 months, and pregnant women, receive the flu vaccine every year. This again is a ridiculous toxic recommendation.
In addition to mercury, flu vaccines also contain other toxic or hazardous ingredients like;
- Formaldehyde - a known cancer causing agent
- Aluminum - a neuro-toxin that has been linked to Alzheimer's disease
- Triton X-100 - a detergent
- Phenol (carbolic acid)
- Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
- Various antibiotics: neomycin, gentamicin - which can cause allergic reactions in some people
The Evidence Against Flu Vaccines
For those of you who are still reading and are beyond belief, mad at me and ready to opt out of any future e-mails, I want you to know that there is plenty of scientific evidence available to back up the recommendation to avoid the flu vaccines, if for nothing else, then for the simple reason that they don't work, and don't offer any real benefit to offset their inherent health risks. For example;
A brand new study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu had no impact on the flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons. The researchers concluded that "significant influenza vaccine effectiveness could not be demonstrated for any reason, age, or setting" examined.
A study published in the lancet just two months ago found that influenza vaccination was NOT associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia in older people. This supports a study done five years ago, published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine last month also confirms that there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza and pneumonia, despite the fact that vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15% in 1980 to 65% now.
Last year, researchers with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institutes of Health published this conclusion in the Lancet Infectious Diseases: "We conclude that frailty selection bias and use of non-specific endpoints such as all-cause mortality have led to cohort studies to greatly exaggerate vaccine benefits."
A large-scale systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochran Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006 found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children. The studies involved 260,000 children, age 6 to 23 months.
VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION
Might Influenza be little more than a symptom of vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D, the "sunshine vitamin" may well be one of the most important vitamins there is for disease prevention. Unfortunately it's of the vitamins that a vast majority of people across the world are deficient in due to lack of regular exposure to sunshine. It seems that everyone uses sunscreen to try to avoid the sun.
Published in the journal Epidemiology and Infection in 2006, the hypothesis presented by Dr. John Cannell and colleagues in the paper Epidemic Influenza and Vitamin D actually makes a lot of sense.
They raise the possibility that Influenza is a symptom of vitamin D deficiency!
The vitamin D formed when your skin is exposed to sunlight regulates the expression of more than 2000 genes throughout your body, including ones that influence your immune system to attack and destroy bacteria as viruses. Hence, being overwhelmed by the "flu bug" could signal that your vitamin D levels are too low, allowing the flu virus to overtake your immune system.
Interestingly, last week the American Academy of Pediatrics doubled its recommended dose of vitamin D. Unfortunately I feel this is still a woefully inadequate recommendation as the dose should be TEN times larger. Rather than giving from 200 to 400 units per day, it should have increased to about 2000 units per day.
For most of you reading this it is "vitamin D winter" which means there simply isn't enough sunshine to make significant amounts of vitamin D, so you will need to use oral supplements.
Although supplements are clearly inferior to sunlight, I believe in the value of vitamin D supplements.
For those in the winter with no or very limited exposure to sunshine, 4,000 to 5,000 units per day would seem appropriate for most adults. If you are very heavy you may need to double the dose, and for children the dose can be half that amount. I have been taking 6,000 units with great results, my immune system is up and my shoulder feels great!
By the way, I have never received the flu shot nor have I had the flu in over 30 years. Other helpful secrets are:
1. Avoid sugar, this lowers white blood cells
2. No pork - can cause the flu
3. Take our Healthy Immune Support Kit
4. Exercise regularly
5. Wash your hands throughout the day
6. Don't get stressed out, this elevates Cortisol
7. Avoid coffee, it elevates Cortisol
8. Follow our immune building protocol
