The Truth about Flu Vaccines


“The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease."

The myth here is the unscientific claim that the flu vaccine is safe and effective and "the best way" to protect you against the flu. Nothing could be further from the truth. Numerous studies have shown that the flu vaccine is NOT an effective way to prevent influenza and the real-life experiences of vaccine victims offer a window into the indisputable reality that flu vaccines are NOT without serious risks.

There are 250 new vaccines being developed, with about 100 already in clinical trials. Since 2007, there have been only six giant drug companies making nearly all vaccines. Annual profits now exceed $ 20B.

If you are an obedient and compliant American who blindly accepts without question the vaccine bill of goods from the government/medical establishment, your lifetime vaccine exposure by your 75th birthday will be 141 shots, delivering 169 doses of unsafe, untested, unproven & ineffective poisons. Good luck.

There is no credible evidence that any vaccine has prevented any disease in anyone at any time. All of the epidemics for which drug companies created vaccines were well into their decline or gone before the vaccine was introduced on a mass scale. The real reasons for the decline of the epidemics of smallpox, measles, polio, etc. were improvements in hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, working conditions and clean water delivery. The vaccines came in well after the fact. Then the vaccine makers/conventional medicine wrongly took credit for it. See the book Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, by Suzanne Humphries, MD for details.

Here are Cochrane Database Reviews, which is the gold standard for assessing the effectiveness of common medical interventions, published between 2006 and 2010, completely reducing the claim that flu vaccinations are the best course of action to prevent the flu.

  • A large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews6 in 2006, found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children under two. The studies involved 260,000 children, ages six to 23 months.

  • Two years, later, in 2008, another Cochrane review again concluded that "little evidence is available" that the flu vaccine is effective for children under the age of two.

  • Then later Cochrane published the following bombshell conclusion: "Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.”

  • Last year, Cochrane also reviewed the available evidence with regards to protecting the elderly, and the results were equally bad. The authors concluded that: "The available evidence is of poor quality and provides no guidance regarding the safety, efficacy or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older."

WARNING: 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.

Why Vaccines Are Dangerous?

  • Vaccines can suppress, impair and alter your immune system. Some components in vaccines are neurotoxic and may depress your immune response or cause brain and immune dysfunction, particularly heavy metals such as mercury preservatives and aluminum adjuvants. Vaccines may alter your t-cell function and lead you to become chronically ill. The flu vaccine consists of mercury which is well-known neurotoxin. There's really no debate about whether or not mercury is a neurotoxin. It's a well-established fact that it is. It's also well understood that mercury is particularly damaging to young, developing brains, and this is one of the core concerns about vaccines. If it's unsafe to breathe or ingest mercury, why would it suddenly become harmless when injected directly into your body, bypassing all of your body's natural detoxification pathways? In the U.S there are a few million doses of mercury free single dose vials of influenza vaccine manufactured by drug companies that are supposed to be reserved for infants and pregnant women. However, if you are pregnant or have an infant and want to get a flu shot, be aware that you may have to specifically insist on getting the mercury free single vial version, as many health practitioners and pharmacists are still clueless about the health risks associated with mercury flu shots (thimerosal). A typical dose of thimerosal-containing flu vaccine contains 25 micrograms thimerosal. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the safe limit for human exposure to mercury is 0.1 mcg per kilo of weight per day. Since almost half of the thimerosal is mercury, this means that each flu shot contains just over 12 mcg's of mercury, which would be considered unsafe for anyone weighing less than 120 kilos, or just under 265 pounds.

  • Vaccines can trigger allergies or autoimmune disorders. Vaccines introduce large foreign protein molecules into your body. Your body can respond to these foreign particles in a way that causes an allergic reaction or triggers autoimmunity, especially in persons genetically or biologically vulnerable to allergy and autoimmunity

  • The flu vaccine may also pose an immediate risk to your cardiovascular system due to the fact that they cause an inflammatory response. One 2007 study published in the Annals of Medicine concluded that: "Abnormalities in arterial function and LDL oxidation may persist for at least two weeks after a slight inflammatory reaction induced by influenza vaccination. These could explain in part the earlier reported increase in cardiovascular risk during the first weeks after an acute inflammatory disorder."

Physicians on Vaccinations:

"There is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects."
Viera Scheibner, PhD

"The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are actually changing our genetic code through vaccination...10 years from now we will know that the biggest crime against humanity was vaccines."
Guylaine Lanctot, MD, in Medical Post

“Our main concern is with the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine. One in 3,000 doses causes permanent injury to a child."
James Strain, MD President of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

“There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children gives more harm than good”
Dr. Anthony Morris former chief vaccine control officer, US FDA

The Research Cal-Oregon Project compared vaccinated and unvaccinated children. This was a phone survey which gathered data on 17,674 children in California and Oregon. The results showed:

  • Vaccinated children had 120% more asthma.

  • Vaccinated boys had 317% more ADHD.

  • Vaccinated boys had 185% more neurologic disorders.

  • Vaccinated boys had 146% more autism.

The prestigious peer-reviewed journal Autoimmunity published data by Dr. J. Bart Classen, immunologist and Dr. David Carey Classen, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Utah, proving a causal relationship between the hemophilus (Hib) vaccine and the development of Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes. The study followed over 100,000 children who had been randomized in a large clinical trial to receive the hemophilus vaccine, and over 100,000 unvaccinated children. After seven years, the group receiving four doses of the vaccine had a statistically significant 26% elevated rate of diabetes, or an extra 54 cases/100,000 children, compared to children who did not receive the vaccine. The study showed that almost all of the extra cases of diabetes caused by the vaccine occurred between 3-4 years after vaccination.

Most recently, a University Of Minnesota study published in January found that flu vaccines may not offer as much protection as previously thought. The elderly, in particular, do not appear to receive measureable value from the flu shot, which is the same conclusion reached by several previous studies. Trivalent inactivated influenza vaccines also didn't offer much protection to children over the age of seven.

So, if you're a senior, you're taking a health risk for a theoretical health benefit that can't be confirmed and, if you're a healthy adult, it's a shot in the dark. According to this analysis, at best you'll have up to 59 percent protection if the selected type A and B influenza strains included in the vaccine are exactly those you happen to be exposed to. If not, you'll have no protection at all.

In conclusion I want to say that:

  • Natural immunity is far superior to artificial immunity.

  • Breast milk is the best immune stimulator for the baby during the first year of life and that a great deal of immunological protection is provided to the child for as long as breastfeeding continues.

  • The most diseases contracted by a healthy child, at an appropriate age in childhood, provide important challenges to the immune system enabling it to mature and strengthen, and almost always provide lifelong immunity to the disease.

  • That the vast majority of childhood infections are benign and self-limiting in a healthy, well-nourished, well cared for child with a healthy immune system.

  • Conventional and homoeopathic/naturopathic treatment in the event of illness is safer and more effective than trying to prevent illness through artificial immunity

  • Good health, which starts with a balanced diet that includes important vitamins and minerals, is safer, and more effective at preventing many diseases than artificial immunity.
