The Flu Vaccine Myth

I would love to say I wrote one of the best article out there on the myth of flu vaccines, but I would be lying, as it already exists. This article written by Croft Woodruff for Alive Magazine back in April of 2000 is a stellar piece of work and the research holds boldly true today. If you would like to check out the original article, and the juicy links provided on-line, you can by following the highlighted link to the original article: The Flu Vaccine Myth by author Croft Woodruff Statistically, you’d be more likely to avoid the flu if you took nothing at all. So why are we subjected to the flu vaccine media blitz each year? In Vancouver, a BCTV reporter, commenting on the current flu epidemic that is overloading BC hospital emergency wards, claimed that of 32 people who were vaccinated, 30 caught the flu. Immediately, the news anchor intoned “It is not too late to get your flu shot. The vaccine is 70 percent effective.” [BCTV News Hour, January 11/00] How does a 93.75 percent failure rate for the vaccine translate into a 70 percent effectiveness? Here is a vaccine with a success rate of 6.25 percent. This is an amazing under-achievement, since the average placebo response to distilled water injections is 30 percent–even to cure chronic low back pain. How can any drug company manufacture a drug which has nearly five times less of a positive response than virtually nothing at all? How does such a questionable treatment get past federal health regulators? According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world’s leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals), if an individual has had five flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) her chances of getting Alzheimer’s Disease is 10 times higher than if she had one, two or no shots. When asked why this was so, Fudenberg said it was due to the mercury and aluminum that is in every flu shot (and most childhood shots). The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. Is this why the number of those suffering from Alzheimer’s is expected to quadruple? Creating herd immunity through mass vaccinations seems to be justified in the name of sacrificing a few for the greater good of the majority. It means people are expendable. Some would call this premeditated murder. This was what the Nuremburg Trials were about after World War II. People cannot and must not be medicated or subjected to experimentation against their will. It also flies totally in the face of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Vaccines consist of mainly three categories of ingredients. The first are cultured bacteria and viruses. The second ingredient is the medium in which they are cultivated. This may be chick embryo, chicken or duck egg protein, pig or horse blood, dog kidney tissue, monkey kidney tissue, calf serum, rabbit brain tissue, aborted human fetal cells or cowpox pus. These foreign proteins are injected directly into the bloodstream. They are not subject to the stomach’s hydrochloric acid. The enzymes of digestion are absorbed into the blood and carried directly to the liver. Like insect stings or snake bites, these foreign proteins and other toxic byproducts have the potential for a mild to severe or fatal reaction. Vaccines also contain stabilizers, neutralizers, carrying agents and preservatives such as formaldehyde, mercury and aluminum. As noted previously, mercury and aluminum are neurological poisons-they accumulate in the brain. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen and is used to embalm the dead. There is no safe level of formaldehyde injected into a living organism. Life After Vaccines Sweden banned the pertussis vaccine in 1979, considering it both dangerous and ineffective –infant mortality dropped afterward. Sweden now maintains one of the lowest incidence of infant mortality in the world. In 1975, Japan raised the age of the pertussis vaccine to two years of age considering it a danger in infancy. Since that time, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) has largely disappeared. Nations with voluntary vaccine programs such as Canada and the United Kingdom have lower infant mortality rates than the US. Before the 1960s and the move to mandatory mass childhood vaccinations, the US had the second best infant mortality rate in the world. Forty years of mass immunizations later, with a childhood series of more than 34 vaccine mixtures prior to entering 1st grade, the US has dropped to number 24. Why does the wealthiest nation in the world, with all its vaunted health technology and medical know-how, have such a dismal record for infant mortality? Every year in the US, 12,000 to 14,000 reports of adverse reactions associated with vaccinations–including hospitalizations, permanent brain damage and death–are reported to the Food and Drug Administration. Any drug on the market with a fraction of this record would be recalled in short order. Recent Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine campaigns in the US have coincided with a 200 per cent rise in the incidence of autism. Hepatitis B vaccine alone has been responsible for 25,000 reports of adverse reactions including optic neuritis, brain damage, paralytic polio and sudden death. There is not an insurance underwriter who will offer liability coverage for drug companies in the event any of their vaccines cause death or disability to the recipient. One would think this should give cause to reflect on the value of official assurances of vaccine safety. Indeed, the US government assumed liability for vaccine damage because the manufacturers could not get insurance. Since 1987, over a billion US dollars have been paid out to compensate only 10 percent of the claimants. The current effort to make vaccines compulsory world wide will be a license to print money for the vaccine producers and an iatrogenic health disaster of the first magnitude. Health professionals and others in work situations requiring compulsory vaccines are faced with hard choices. If there is a family history of allergy or anaphylactic reaction, they may be able to apply for exemption on medical grounds. Otherwise, you take your chances with vaccine roulette.

    Against all odds, we found a pediatrician in California who supported our decision to by-pass immunizations. Later we learned how to get waivers so that he could attend school. Our son had occasional sniffles and sore throats, all of which responded to homeopathy, herbs, acupuncture, massage, and other modalities. (My husband practices acupuncture and TCM, and I practice massage and cranio-sacral therapy.)

    When our son was in his early 20s he traveled to South America. It was then that he had his first and only vaccination (which we treated with a nosode). At that point his immune system was well established, and there was virtually no reaction except for localized itching and swelling similar to that of a mosquito bite.

    What are the statistics for Sweden and Japan for autism, ADHD, and ADD? With vaccinations, I think that the allopathic toxico-molecular “health” industry has built itself an empire. And with rampant fluoridation, I feel certain that the U.S. has become a nation of sheep – dyslexic sheep.

    Excellent points. Also, don’t forget, that some parents are comforted by our ability to immunize their child with the equivalent homeopathic remedies, which are highly safe and effective. All the modalities you have employed are brilliant ways to help the general immune system, but it is also valid to use these specifics for the more specific immune protection to specific pathogens.
