From commercials, to TV shows and bill boards, you can't miss the rush to propagandize flu vaccines for pregnant mothers, children and the elderly every fall. Not only does the CDC admit flu shots don't work, but there is absolutely no evidence that any influenza vaccine prevents the flu any more than a placebo. Here are five myths to be aware of before deciding to submit yourself or your loved one to flu vaccines.
One study led by researchers at the School of Public Health and the University of Georgia, explored the determinants of trust in flu vaccines among adults, including trust in its efficacy and in the vaccine production process. The authors stressed the utmost importance of enhancing trust in the flu vaccine and vaccine process which appears to being failing specific demographics.
Trust is failing because of lack of scientific governance not science itself. More vaccine skeptics are challenging how research is prioritized and funded, how trials are designed and evidence collected and analyzed, which studies get published, and how scientific evidence is used to inform policy decisions. The critics charge scientific institutions with bias say, having financial interests that work against the public interest and it's working against the pharmaceutical industrial complex as millions now continue to reject the flu vaccine.
Influenza vaccination coverage in the United States remains below national targets and racial/ethnic differences persist according to a study in Vaccine.
An overwhelming majority of pregnant women who visit the doctor's office are now refusing the flu vaccine over fears it will harm their fetus and their fears are now scientifically justified. More than 90% of all expecting mothers will now say no to the flu vaccine due to fear of miscarriage and delivery of toxic byproducts to their unborn child.
In 2011, Dr. Alessandro Bertoucci who analyzed the practices of 256 physicians treating more than 600,000 patients, reported that a staggering 91% of pregnant women are declining influenza vaccines due to fears of miscarriage and suspected toxins in the vaccine itself.
A study published in the Human and Experimental Toxicology journal found a direct statistical correlation between higher vaccine doses and infant mortality rates. It showed a 4250% increase in fetal deaths according to Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data when comparing three consecutive influenza seasons. It was a confirmation that many anti-vaccine advocates have long awaited and further establishes and adds to preliminary evidence that vaccinations are toxic poisons having no place in the human body.
While the CDC states on its website that "low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site," the journal BioMed Research International now provides direct evidence that the CDC's safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article's lead author, Brian Hooker, PhD.
What most people do not realize is although the FDA gave a two year deadline to remove thimerosal from vaccines after the deadly neurotoxin was banned in 1999, they continue to appear in 60 percent of vaccine formulations to this day.
Factually, Thimerosal is a mercury-containing compound that is a known human carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen and immune-system disruptor at levels below 1 part-per-million, and a compound to which some humans can have an anaphylactic shock reaction. It is also a recognized reproductive and fetal toxin with no established toxicologically safe level of exposure for humans.
MYTH 1: THE FLU SHOT IS VERY EFFECTIVE
Statistically, you are less likely to get the flu if you haven’t had a flu vaccine. A BCTV reporter in Vancouver, commenting on the overload in BC emergency rooms, said that out of 32 people who had received a flu shot, 30 got the flu. There is no single virus that causes the flu and there is no single flu vaccine that protects against all strains. A report highlighted by the alternative media is a remarkable study published in the Cochrane Library which found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations and also noted that the vast majority of trials were inadequate. Scientists take an educated guess as to what three of over 300 different flu viruses they expect to have the greatest virulence in the upcoming year. The vaccine is then formulated from these three viruses.
The proportion of Influenza Like Illnesses (ILI) caused by influenza viruses varies by year, and even varies within a specific year over the course of the winter. Flu strains are only active less than 15% of the time. When you get the flu vaccine, your body produces antibodies to three specific strains of the virus. So you basically have a three out of 300 chance (one percent) of being vaccinated for the proper viral strain. Additionally, the viruses are always adapting and may change form by the time you are exposed.
MYTH 2: THE FLU SHOT HAS A HIGH SUCCESS RATE
The CDC's has extremely biased, unscientific, and disproportionately inaccurate statements claiming that flu vaccine effectiveness reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60% among the overall population. There is little if any support scientific documentation supporting these numbers. A Rice University study predicted that this fall's flu vaccine will likely have the same reduced efficacy against the dominant circulating strain of influenza A as the vaccine given in 2016 and 2017 due to viral mutations related to vaccine production in eggs. The Rice method, known as pEpitope is a more accurate predictor of vaccine efficacy than long-relied-upon ferret tests, particularly for data gathered in the past decade. The pEpitope method accounts for 77 percent of what impacts efficacy of the vaccine in humans. Rice's John W. Cox Professor in Biochemical and Genetic Engineering stated "Our study found that...mutations halved the efficacy of flu vaccines in the past two seasons, and we expect they will lower the efficacy of the next vaccine in a similar manner." Full efficacy data for the 2017-2018 flu season are still being compiled, but pEpitope has predicted it will be around 19 percent against H3N2, the type of influenza A that infected most people in the U.S. in each of the past two years. This is a pretty big under-achievement, considering that the average reaction to placebo injections of distilled water is 30%.
The Washington Post says the “public health community [has] overstated the risk of flu-related death.” Yes, people die from the flu, but not the average, healthy individual. Even among the elderly, the risk of death from the flu is 1 in 1000. The Cochrane Library study found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations and also noted that the vast majority of trials were inadequate.
The authors found that vaccines administered parenterally, that is, outside the digestive tract, usually meaning by injection, reduced influenza-like symptoms by 4%. This review includes 15 out of 36 trials funded by industry (four had no funding declaration). An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in light of this finding.
MYTH 3: THE FLU SHOT IS SAFE
Hugh Fudenberg MD, who is the world’s leading immunogeneticist, says that if a person had 5 flu vaccinations between 1970 and 1980 he/she is 10 times more likely to get Alzheimer’s Disease than if he/she had only one or two shots. Fudenberg said that this was because of the aluminum and mercury, which almost every flu vaccine contains. The gradual accumulation of aluminum and mercury in the brain leads to cognitive dysfunction. The flu vaccine has also been linked with other serious health conditions such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, vascular disorders, and narcolepsy. According to Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD), numerous scientific studies and extensive peer-reviewed scientific and medical papers have all concluded that Thimerosal poses a significant health risk. Thimerosal manufacturers also acknowledge that the preservative can cause mild to severe mental retardation in children. Thimerosal is still found in up to 60 percent of flu vaccines.
MYTH 4: THERE ARE NO HARMFUL INGREDIENTS
Flu vaccines consist primarily of 3 categories of ingredients. First there are viruses and cultured bacteria. The second ingredient is the way in which they can be cultivated. This includes aborted human fetal cells, foreign proteins and viruses, chick embryos, pig blood, monkey kidney tissue, cowpox pus, and calf serum, antibiotics like Streptomycin and all of these get injected straight into your bloodstream. The flu shot also contains neutralizers, stabilizers, carrying agents and preservatives such as mercury, aluminum and many other toxic agents! Formaldehyde is something that is used for embalming the dead and is known to cause cancer. There is no amount of formaldehyde considered safe when injected into a living organism. Thimerosal is only one of many toxic ingredients that appear in vaccines. There are plenty of others including but not limited to: neomycin (immunotoxin), polymyxin (neurotoxin), gentamicin sulfate (nephrotoxin), monosodium glutamate (neurotoxin, excitotoxin), sodium deoxycholate (immunotoxin), hydrocortisone (myelin degenerator), octoxynol 10 (immunotoxin), polysorbate 80 (sterile agent), and beta-propiolactone (carcinogen), polyethylene glycol (system toxin). Keep in mind, this is just a small list of a dozen toxic excipients in vaccine formulations.
MYTH 5: VACCINES WORK
1) Vaccines contain many chemicals and heavy metals, like mercury and aluminum, which are in-themselves immuno-suppressing. Mercury actually causes changes in the lymphocyte activity and decreases lymphocyte viability.
2) Vaccines contain foreign tissues and foreign DNA/RNA which act to suppress the immune system via graft-vs-host rejection phenomena.
3) Vaccines alter our t-cell helper/suppressor ratios...just like those seen with AIDS. This ratio is a key indicator of a proper functioning immune system.
4) Vaccines alter the metabolic activity of PMNs and reduce their chemotaxic abilities. PMNs are our body’s defenses against pathogenic bacteria and viruses.
5) Vaccines suppress our immunity merely buy over-taxing our immune system with foreign material, heavy metals, pathogens and viruses. The heavy metals slow down our immune system, while the viruses set up shop to grow and divide. It is like being chained and handcuffed before swimming.
6) Vaccines clog our lymphatic system and lymph nodes with large protein molecules which have not been adequately broken down by our digestive processes, since vaccines by pass digestion with injections. This is why vaccines are linked to allergies, because they contain large proteins which as circulating immune complexes (CICs) or "klinkers" which cause our body to become allergic.
7) Vaccines deplete our body of vital immune-enhancing nutrients, like vitamin C, A and zinc, which are needed for a strong immune system. It is nutrients like these that primes our immune system, feeds the white blood cells and macrophages and allows them to function optimally.
8) Vaccines are neurotoxic and slow the level of nervous transmission, and communications to the brain and other tissues. Now we know that some lymphocytes communicate directly with the brain through a complex set of neurotransmitters. Altering these factors will also depress our immunity.
Nature's Flu Shot
There is not much value in a flu vaccine because it does not work with the body to facilitate prevention or healing--it works against it. Nature has the ultimate flu shot with pure, ultra immune boosting power that a vaccine can never match. This recipe stimulates the immune system to such an extent, that people often report results within as little as three hours.
8 Fresh Lemons 2 Fresh Oranges
2 Cups Pineapple Juice
2 Tbsp. Ground Ginger
1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar 1/2 tsp. Ground Tumeric
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
2 Tbsp. Raw Honey
1 bulb Garlic (can increase to 2 if tolerated)
Blend all ingredients and store in a glass jar. This recipe works exceptionally well if you start taking it just as you start to feel symptoms. At that point, take 1 cup 3 times per day until symptoms resolve.
