Flu season is upon us. It’s time to decide if you or your children will receive a flu shot this year. After all, 23,607- 35,000 people die from the flu each year, right? You don’t want to be included in this year’s statistics! But are those numbers accurate?
The CDC Morbidity and Weekly Report dated October 24, 2014, released information about a flu outbreak that occurred 8 months prior to publication. The article titled, Influenza Outbreak in a Vaccinated Population – USS Ardent, February 2014, details the outbreak and the means used to stop the spread of infection.
Fall and winter is flu season and many Americans respond to this threat with an annual flu shot. Posters on drug store walls and entryways ask, “Have you had your flu shot yet?” There is a clear expectation in the message, that every person should comply. Last year, 135 million doses of flu vaccine were distributed. Although this represents only 14% of our population, this is indeed a large number. Flu vaccines are big business.
There is a consistent misnomer among the mainstream consensus that vaccines are healthy. If flu shots are effective, one could argue that the end result is healthy, but there is nothing healthy about the vaccine itself. In 2014, the ingredients include thimerosal (mercury), aluminum salts, sugars, gelatin, egg protein, formaldehyde, and neomycin. Nobody in their right mind can argue that allowing these toxins into the body is actually “healthy.” The idea is that the damage the vaccine may do is outweighed by the illness it prevents.
I think it’s possible that vaccines have their place.On the other hand, I also believe that a very healthy person is at a much greater risk from vaccine injury than any disease. But I am under the radical assumption that when the body is fed properly, and not over burdened with toxins, the body is not susceptible to pathogens. I also believe in the crazy notion that illness including HIV, cancer, and almost every other disease are curable through natural means. I understand that this sounds crazy to most people.
