The U.S Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine as “the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.” This advice applies to everyone 6 months of age and older, CDC stressing that you “should get a flu vaccine as soon as [they] are available.”
With such promotion of the vaccine, it’s easy to fool yourself thinking that the vaccine will protect you from all flu-like illnesses this year. Unfortunately, this is not true. A new study has exposed that “60% effective” flu shot as 98.5% useless.
Below are 3 reasons why flu vaccines are both useless and harmful:
1. Flu Vaccines Will Not Protect You From Flu
Every year the CDC recommends flu vaccine manufacturers to put in three viral strains they guess might be the most common infections for the flu season. However, there are thousands of flu virus possibilities every winter you may come in contact with. If the flu shot you received do not contain the viral strains you come in contact with, essentially you have no more immunity over it then others who may not have received the jab. This makes the chances of you being protected very unlikely. A new study in The Lancet Infectious Diseases reveals that the flu vaccine prevents lab confirmed type A or type B influenza in only 1.5 out of every 100 vaccinated adults, but the media reports it to be “60 percent effective!”
The researchers’ own conclusion are as follows:
2. Flu shot contains neurotoxic mercury
The culprit for this toxicity is Thimerosal, a common additive and preservative that contains mercury. There are no proven safe amounts of mercury in the human body and yet even vaccines that label themselves as “mercury-free” may contain traces of mercury up to 300ppb. To put things in perspective, anything over 200 ppb is considered toxic. There are many proven ill effects of mercury on the human body. The WHO writes:
- Mercury is considered by WHO as one of the top ten chemicals or groups of chemicals of major public health concern.
- Mercury may have toxic effects on the nervous, digestive, and immune systems, and on lungs, kidneys, skin and eyes.
- Exposure to mercury – even small amounts – may cause serious health problems, and is a threat to the development of the child in utero and early in life.
3. The flu vaccine contains Glyphosate – a toxic herbicide ingredient
According to an independent study (means no pharmaceutical/vaccine companies were involved with the funding), multiple samples of many common vaccines were contaminated with glyphosate. Glyphosate is an herbal pesticide found in weed killers and the chemical has been linked to diseases such as autism, IBD and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The WHO acknowledge the chemical as “probably carcinogenic.”
Flu vaccines have time to time shown to have very minimal and limited measurable benefits for children, adults and seniors. Are you willing to accept the risks for a 1.5% benefit?
The video above is an interview conducted by Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of NVIC interviewing a profile who developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after getting a seasonal flu vaccine in 2008 and today is permanently disabled with total body paralysis.
With growing controversies surrounding vaccinations in general, it shines a light on the topic that it’s is imperative for families to make well-informed decisions about flu vaccines. Let’s ask us, is it really worth it to get a jab on a yearly basis?
How to naturally prevent the flu
Avoiding the flu and flu-like illness during the flu season doesn’t require a flu vaccine. Below are few simple guidelines and natural remedies that will help you boost the immune system, efficiently fight the virus and even prevent from infection.
1. Optimise Vitamin D levels
Vitamin D is one of the best-proven ways to avoid infection of all kinds. One of the most effective methods of absorbing vitamin D is from natural sunlight. But if you do not get enough sunlight on a day-to-day basis, you may even consider taking an oral vitamin D3 supplement. It is recommended that the therapeutic range for vitamin D is anywhere between 50 to 70ng/ml.
Exercise leads to increased blood circulation and blood flow, which in turn allows the components of your immune system to circulate better. This increases the chances of your immune system detecting and fighting and illness before it spreads. Exercise has been proven to be an effective, natural antidepressant and in fact, it has been featured as one of the seven things you can do to transform your life immediately.
3. Use Natural Antibiotics
If you fall sick, it helps to boost your immune system with natural antibiotics. A good recommendation is oregano oil. It has been proven to be more effective than prescription antibiotics. Other examples are garlic and colloidal silver. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, they are free from side-effects and your body won’t develop resistance.
4. Chiropractic care
Regular chiropractic care helps to both prevent and fight any sort of infections. Chiropractic adjustments work because it boosts your immune system and helps you fight stress naturally.
The controversy surrounding the use of vaccines (flu and non-flu) is very delicate. The decision whether to receive or reject vaccines should be made according to the law of your state and/or region that affects you. Please discuss with your family practitioner if in doubt. This article is written with the sole purpose of educating the public about flu vaccines specifically. If a paediatrician or a doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your family unless you agree to be vaccinated, I highly encourage you to find another doctor. At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they’re starting to adopt a more individualised approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of patients.
So stay informed, discuss with your doctor and make the right decision.
