Is it the Flu Season?

Posted on January 23rd, 2013 by | 2 views

Is it the Flu Season?

Or is it just the season with more stress (emotional and financial), more sugar and more alcoholingestion?

How many people do you know who get the flu shot, and then get flu-like symptoms? Is this a coincidence?

The Flu versus The Flu Shot

What is the difference?

The Flu: Fever, headache, achy all over, fatigue

The Flu Shot: Fever, headache, achy all over, fatigue

Why are flu shots pushed and promoted? Follow the money trail...

"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway."

Dr. J. Anthony Morris, formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Isn't there science to show that vaccines work?

"There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age."

Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice

At least vaccines are safe, right?

"The only wholly safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used."

Dr. James A. Shannon, National Institute of Health (NIH), USA

"If an individual has had five consecutive flu shots, his or her chances of getting Alzheimer's disease is ten times higher than if they had one, two or no shots."

Hugh Fudenberg, M.D. (One of the World's leading immunogeneticists, and 13th most quoted biologist of our era)

The following is a list of ingredients found in flu vaccines:

  • Ethylene Glycol (Antifreeze)
  • Phenol (carbolic acid, also used as a disinfectant and dye)
  • Formaldehyde (a known carcinogen)
  • Aluminum (associated with Alzheimer's disease and seizures)
  • Mercury (thimerosal is ethyl mercury, many times more toxic to humans than the methyl mercury found as an environmental contaminant)
  • Neomycin and streptomycin (antibiotics)

Flu Shot Q&A

Question: What is the flu?

Answer: An acute respiratory infection characterized by sudden onset, fever, chills, headache, myalgia (muscle pain); cough and sore throat are common. It is usually a self-limited disease that lasts from 2 to 7 days.

(From Taber's Medical Dictionary)

Question: Are flu shots guaranteed to prevent getting the flu?

Answer: Various government and industry sources report a 2% to 30% chance of vaccine being effective.

Question: Are health care workers required to et the flu shot each year?

Answer: According to surveys published in the Journal of the AMA, less than a third of hospital workers comply with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations to be vaccinated each year. Doctors are the least compliant of all. The reason most often given for avoiding the shot: Fear of adverse reactions.

What's a person to do to avoid the flu?

Viruses are present all the year round. People "come down" with the flu when resistance is down, when the body's immune response is compromised. The best thing to do is to do the right thing daily, weekly, monthly to keep our immune system in the best possible condition.

Enough exercise, sleep, sunshine, good thoughts and good food go a long way toward making your immune response strong. And, your Central Nervous System is responsible for every aspect of coordinating your immune response. So don't forget to tune up the Master Control of your Immune System with regular Chiropractic checkups!
