Flu Shot


Do you know what’s in a flu shot? Every year people are urged to get a flu shot. According to the media, the medical establishment and the government, we are facing a possible flu epidemic. They claim that the flu shot is safe and that it saves lives. Let’s take a closer look at these statements…

Most people suffering from fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles think they have the flu. They usually don’t. Instead, they have an “influenza-like illness” (ILI) associated with many other “germs”. In one study, the CDC found that only 13.4% of people who had flu symptoms actually had the flu. The remaining had an ILI. 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 2003. That year the number of flu deaths in children jumped to 90.

The flu shot typically contains mercury—a neurotoxin that damages brain and nerve cells. There are 25 micrograms of mercury per dose in most flu shots. That number is five times the maximum amount judged safe by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for a 110 lb. person. In 1999 government agencies called for the removal of mercury in vaccines. However, many vaccines are still permitted to have unsafe levels of mercury. Some of this year’s flu vaccines still contain mercury.

No one knows the long-term consequences of repeated influenza vaccinations—it’s never been tested (same with all vaccines). The cleansing or detoxifying aspect of illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating) may be why getting colds, flu and infections diseases 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 revealed that “a history of common colds or of influenza was associated with a decreased risk of stomach, colon, rectum and ovarian cancer.”
