The case against Flu Vaccines

Natural Wealth, Natural Health

March 13, 2017


Today I feel like railing against flu shots.


Personally, I would never get one.


There are two reasons for this


For one, there’s mounting evidence that

regular flu shots just aren’t that effective.


In fact, during the 2014 – 2015 flu season, the flu

vaccine had an abysmal 18 percent effectiveness

rate, according to the US Center for Disease

Control (CDC).


In the 2015 – 2016 flu season, the CDC said it

was 59 percent.


And while that’s way better than 18 percent, it’s far from

iron-clad protection.


The second reason I would never get a flu shot is

because studies show that annual flu shots lessens your

protection from certain flu strains in later years.


Data from Canada and Hong Kong during 2009 – 2010

showed that people who were inoculated with a seasonal

flu vaccine in 2008 had twice the risk of getting the infamous

“swine flu” than those who never received a flu shot.


And ABC News reported at that time that yearly flu shots may

actually set you up for less broad protection than if you

get, and recover, from the flu itself.


Here’s something else: Research in the journal “Clinical

Infectious Diseases” found that vaccine-induced protection

against influenza was greatest among those not vaccinated

*at all* during the prior 5 five years.


In other words, the long-term effects of getting an annual

flu shot are completely unknown, but it appears the strategy

of submitting to annual flu shots may be backfiring, leaving

those who have been vaccinated every year less protected than

those don’t get vaccinated at all.


And of course there has been no shortage of reports that flu

shots are toxic and can cause severe problems in people with

compromised immune systems.


The main concern along these lines is that they contain thimerosal,

which is 49 percent mercury by weight.


But mercury isn’t the only toxic substance in typical flu vaccines.


They usually also contain:


– Aluminum, a neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer’s

– Triton X-100, a detergent

– Ethylene glycol, which is antifreeze

– and several more proven poisons


So, in the face of all of the pro-vaccine propaganda we here in

the U.S. are being bombarded with, we would be wise to consider

implementing some common sense measures to reducing our

chances of coming down with the flu (whether you opt for a

vaccine or not).


These include:


– Getting plenty of vitamin D3, either through sunshine, a safe tanning

bed, or oral supplementation


– Avoiding sugar and simple carbohydrates


– Exercising


– Sleeping enough (8 to 9 hours nightly)


– Washing your hands regularly


– Avoiding emotional stress, or dealing with it constructively


Well, that’s it for today.


Until tomorrow,
