During this time of year, you will begin to see popular drugstore chains and even grocery stores promoting "Flu Shots Available Here" and other forms of communication to lure you into receiving an unnecessary procedure. We do not promote the flu shot ever, and as you can see, the current flu shot contains ingredients we never recommend. For a safe alternative, we suggest, Agrisept-L, which is sourced from lemon extract.
Here are some more reasons why our team #SMH:
Do You Know What’s in a Flu Shot?
Every year people are urged to get the flu shot. According to the media, the medical establishment and the government, we are facing a possible flu epidemic, the shot is safe and it saves lives. Let’s take a closer look at these statements.
How many people really get the flu?
Most people suffering from fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles think they have the flu. They do not. Instead they have an “influenza-like illness” (ILI) associated with many different “germs” such as rhinoviruses, respiratory syncytial virus [RSV], adenoviruses, parainfluenza viruses,
Legionella spp., Chlamydia pneumonia, Mycoplasma pneumonia and Steptococcus pneumonia but NOT the flu virus.
In one study, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that only 17.1% of people who had flu symptoms actually had the flu. The remaining had an ILI. Why, if most flu-like illness is not associated with the flu virus, do we even need a flu shot?
Is the flu shot effective?
According to Sherri Tenpenny, DO, vaccine researcher, “The fact that the flu shots are ineffective in every age group hardly seems to matter to those who continually promote their use. Multiple studies published in highly reputable publications have documented that flu shots are
ineffective in all ages.”
How many people die from the flu?
You may have heard the flu kills about 36,000 Americans every year. That is simply not true. Government statistics lump flu and pneumonia deaths together, but flu deaths are only a small fraction of the total. For example, in 2002 when the flu plus pneumonia deaths were reported at
over 60,000, only 753 were flu deaths. In 2001 the total number of flu deaths was 267.
Does this justify giving a poorly tested and dangerous vaccine to millions of people?
The CDC states: “Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom seasonal influenza infection was likely a contributor to the cause of death, but not necessarily the primary cause of death. Only a small proportion of deaths are estimated to be influenza-related; only 8.5% of all pneumonia and influenza deaths and only 2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths were influenza-related.”
-Flu shots contain mercury – a neurotoxin that damages brain and nerve cells
There are 25 micrograms of mercury per dose in many flu shots; five times the maximum amount judged sage by the CDC for a 110 lb. person. “More than 75% of Americans said a pregnant woman or a child should not get a mercury-laden flu shot,” said Lisa Handley of PutChildrenFirst.org whose son became autistic after a flu shot. This year’s flu vaccines still contain mercury in multi-dose vials.
Nobody really knows what this mixture of chemicals and microorganisms does in our bodies.
The Flu shot is linked to Alzheimer’s; according to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world’s leading immunogeneticist, the chances of getting Alzheimer’s is ten times higher if an individual has
had five consecutive flu shots. Dr. Fudenberg states that mercury in the shot causes the brain damage.
Dangerous and useless during pregnancy
Vaccinating mothers does not reduce respiratory illness in their newborns or infants. “Maternal influenza vaccination did not significantly affect infant outpatient and inpatient visits for acute respiratory illness.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics states “mercury in all of its forms is toxic to the fetus and children.” Yet pediatricians who tell pregnant women not to eat tuna to avoid mercury still recommend the mercury-laden flu shot even though mercury injected into the mother is able to cross the placental barrier and enter the fetus.
Flu shot for children?
In 1999, 25 children died from the flu in the entire United States. In 2000 that number decreased to 19, to 13 in 2001 and to 12 in 2002. The CDC began to push for flu shots for kids in 200. That year the number of flu deaths in children jumped to 90.
Shot damages the immune system
No one knows the long-term consequences of repeated influenza vaccinations – it’s never been tested (same with all vaccines). Repeated vaccination at a young age increases the risk of influenza in older age. This is possibly due to overall weakening of the immune system. However,
natural flu infection strengthens the immune system.
The Flu Shot Is Not Completely Tested
It is not known if flu vaccines can cause cancer, mutations, sterility, reproductive problems or fetal harm when given during pregnancy. It is also not known if flu vaccine is excreted in human milk.
Does the flu shot save lives among the elderly?
Even though immunization rates in those over 65 have increased 50% in the past 20 years researchers found no decline in flu-related deaths. Researchers report that studies “substantially” overestimate the vaccine’s benefit.
No Effect On Complications
A review of 50 reports that included 70,000 participants found that flu vaccination had no effect on hospital admissions or complication rates. The vaccine caused harm and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. “There is no evidence that they [flu vaccines] affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission….”
The Benefits of Symptoms
Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” recognized the role symptoms play in the larger picture of health when he wrote, “Diseases are crises of purification, of toxic elimination. Symptoms are the natural defenses of the body. We call them disease, but in fact they are the cure of diseases.”
For example, flu sufferers who took aspirin or acetaminophen were sick 3.5 days longer than people who did not take the drugs.
The cleansing or detoxifying aspect of illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating) may be why getting colds, flu and infectious disease has been associated with a decreased risk of cancer.
Researchers found that those who had febrile infectious childhood diseases have less cancer as adults, while another study revealed that “a history of common colds or influenza was associated with a decreased risk of stomach, colon, rectum and ovarian cancer.”
Don’t let fear tactics dictate your healthcare decisions. Make an informed choice!
Mercury (thimerosal)-One of the most poisonous substances known. Has an affinity for the brain, gut, liver, bone marrow and kidneys. Minute amounts can cause nerve damage. Symptoms of mercury toxicity are similar to those of autism.
Formaldehyde (formalin)-Major component of embalming fluid; poisonous if ingested. Probable carcinogen; suspected gastrointestinal, liver, immune system, nerve, reproductive system and respiratory poison. Linked to leukemia, and brain, colon, sinus, nasopharynx and lymphatic
Gentamicin sulfate & polymyxin b (antibiotics)-Allergic reactions can range from mild to life-threatening.*
Chicken embryos-The flu vaccine is made with fluids from chick embryos inoculated with specific type(s) of influenza virus. People who are allergic to these products (egg or chicken) or to any of the other ingredients in a vaccine can become seriously ill from the vaccination.
Sodium phosphate-Symptoms may include vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, blood chemistry effects, heart disturbances and central nervous system effects; inflammation and pain on prolonged contact, especially with moist skin.
Gelatin-Produced from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, demineralized cattle bones and pork skin. Allergic reactions have been reported.*
Polysorbate 80-Known to cause cancer in animals.
Neomycin sulfate (antibiotic)-Interferes with Vitamin B6 absorption. An error in the uptake of B6 can cause a rare form of epilepsy and mental retardation. Allergic reactions can be mild to life-threatening.*
Monosodium glutamate (msg/glutamate/glutamic acid)-May have mutagenic, teratogenic (developmental malformation and monstrosities) and reproductive effects. A neurotoxin. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe.*
Sodium deoxycholate-Promotes tumors and damages DNA.
Octoxynol-10 (triton x-100) / octoxynol-9 (polyethylene glycol-p-isooctylphenyl ether; octylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol)-Spermicide (kills sperm). Can cause chills, confusion, dizziness, fever, lightheadedness, muscle aches, peeling of the skin. Causes severe eye irritation. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or in contact with skin. Toxicology traces of ethylene oxide or dioxane, which are probable human carcinogens. Manufacturer’s website,
Calbiochem.com, states: FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR HUMAN OR DRUG USE.
Beta propiolactone-Known to cause cancer. Suspected respiratory, gastrointestinal, liver, skin and sense organ poison. NOTE: Vaccine should not be administered to anyone with known systemic hypersentivity to any component of the vaccine.
*It is almost impossible to know in advance of exposure if a child or adult has an allergy.
