A Closer Look at the Flu Shot

flu_shot1It starts in every August and goes thru Spring. Get your flu shot to prevent the flu. Does the flu shot actually prevent the flu? Do you know what is in the flu shot? Were you told these ingredients?

According to Dr. Chad Rohlfsen from Des Moines, providers are supposed to fully inform patients about 4 things when it comes to medical procedures – the nature of the procedure, the benefits, the alternatives and the risks which includes the risk of getting the procedure and the risks of not having the procedure. Continuing the quote, if people were fully informed of all 4 things they would likely not undergo receiving the shot. According to the AMAs own policies, initialing a paragraph that all risk have been explained to me is not acceptable.

First off, you should know that the flu shot that is given out is only for one or two bugs. The manufacturers of the flu shot take a guess as to which strain will be circulating during any given season and then make a vaccine for those bugs. Not all of the bugs will be covered.

Second, each shot that is given from a multi-dose vial contains 25 mcg of mercury. According to EPA standards, a person shouldn’t receive more than 0.1 mcg per kilogram of body weight (2.2 lbs). So following this formula, you would have to weigh at least 550 lbs. to receive this much mercury in one shot. The mercury is used as a preservative and an adjuvant to boost the bodies immune response to the flu injection.

The Iowa Department of Health says that everyone from the age of 6 months and up should get the flu shot. But, according to the insert that comes with the flu shot, recipients should be no younger than four years old as there is evidence of diminished immune response in this age group. Also, there is no dosage recommendation for those under the age of four.

Some other dangers of the flu shot are that studies haven’t been conducted to know whether or not the flu shot will cause fetal harm or if it will affect a woman’s reproduction capacity. It should only be given if the need is readily apparent.

In nursing moms, it’s unknown if the flu shot will be in the milk that the mother produces.

We also hear that especially the elderly population should get the flu shot. But according to the insert, the antibody response is lower in people who are 65 and older. A lower antibody response means that the body isn’t producing antibodies that would normally be seen.

Lets take a closer look at the mercury that is in the shot. Dr. Hugh Fudenberg did a study on the flu shots that were given between 1970 and 1980. According to this study, if you received fives consecutive shots, you were 10 times more likely to get Alzheimer’s. The mercury builds up in the brain and cause cognitive problems.

Dr. Boyd Haley, professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky at Lexington did extensive research relating to mercury toxicity and the brain. His research established a connection between repeated mercury exposure and Alzheimer’s. When an autopsy was done on Alzheimer’s patients it was found that heavy metals from vaccines had accumulated in the brain.Dr. Mayer Eisenstein of Home First Clinics in the suburbs of Chicago, says that the flu shot is the biggest hoax ever perpetuated on the American public. It has never been proven to work and 75% of doctors wont take the shot. Dr. Eisenstein says the best way to prevent the flu is to take lots of Vitamin D3. At least 10,000 IU daily. This may seem like a lot but in reality its only 2 or 3 mcg.

According to a clinical trial done by Mitsuyoshi Urashima at the Division of Molecular Epidemiology in Tokyo, it was found that Vitamin D3 was 800% more effective at preventing the flu than the flu shot. Also revealed in this study was that the intake of Vitamin D3 reduced asthma symptoms.

The 1976 flu shots were a fiasco. More people died from the shots than from the actual flu itself. The 2009 Swine Flu pandemic was the same way, more people died from getting the flu shot than from the swine flu itself.

According to Peter Doshi , who had a report published in the British Medical Journal in December of 2005, only 18 deaths were attributed to the flu. The CDC lumps Flu and pneumonia deaths into one category because they assume if someone dies from pneumonia they got pneumonia after getting the flu. This is simply not true.

Doshi continues that using the CDCs own data, between the years of 1979 and 2001, the average death rate from the flu was 1,348 not the astounding figure of 36,000 deaths.

Using the CDCs own data for years between 1976 & 2002, the death rate from the flu has actually gone up since the wide spread use of the flu vaccine.

Lets take a closer look at some of the other flu shot ingredients –

Nonylphenol – Nonylphenol (NP) is used as antioxidant and plasticizer in some plastic products. After the discovery of its endocrine-disrupting potential, concern over human exposure to this chemical has increased.

Ethoxylate – Ethoxylated fatty alcohols are often converted to the organosulfate. A well known example is sodium laureate sulfate, a foaming agent in shampoos and toothpastes, as well as an industrial detergent.

Polymyxin – a bacteriostatic and bactericidal antibiotic, toxicity is low but there is sometimes damage to kidney and nerve cells.

Neomycin – is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body, Neomycin can harm your kidneys, and this effect is increased when you also use certain other medicines harmful to the kidneys as said by drugs.com.

Beta-propiolactone – According to the EPA No information is available on the chronic (long-term), reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of beta-propiolactone in humans. No information is available on the chronic health effects of beta-propiolactone in humans.

Egg proteins – many people have a high allergy level to eggs, which can vary from a mild reaction to life threatening.

A Final Thought:

If you go into a doctors office and they want you to get a flu shot, carry with you a document that says they will be liable for any and all reactions you may have by receiving the flu shot. 99.9% of doctors will not sign it … WHY …
