9 Reasons You Should Avoid the Flu Shot

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

flu shot in arm

(NaturalHealth365) You’ve probably noticed the push from doctors – every year – for people to get the flu shot.  And, to be blunt, this is a very bad idea, as you’ll soon see.

For example, there is little evidence that they actually work to any significant degree.  In fact, in 2010, PLoS Medicine published an analysis of Canadian epidemiological studies suggesting that people, who had received a seasonal influenza shot the year before the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic, actually had an increased risk of being infected with the pandemic swine flu.

Looks like the flu shot does more harm than good

While everyone who gets a flu shot is at risk for negative side effects, the elderly and children are the most at risk, since they are the most immune-compromised among us. The Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine reported that children who got the flu shot had no difference in the incidence of flu than those who did not get it.

The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine reports that there has been no difference in deaths from the flu and pneumonia among the elderly, even though there has been a 15 percent increase in vaccinations among the elderly from 1980 to the present.

9 widely unreported reasons why you should avoid this medical procedure

1. Avoiding thimerosal (a mercury-based preservative): To be clear, this is neurotoxic.

That’s right … this horrible ingredient is still being put into “multi-dose vials” of the flu shot.  So, be careful.

Despite the assurances of health authorities that the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in “perfectly safe,” there has never been any proven safe amount of this toxic substance for use in humans.  Ethically speaking, it’s beyond comprehension how any medical authority would support the use of this substance.

2. You don’t want narcolepsy (a sleep disorder) – do you?

Two studies from Finland directly implicate the flu shot in the development of narcolepsy in 800 children. What else would you expect from a substance that contains a known neurotoxin (mercury)?

3. You will shed the virus and give it to others

This is the main danger with the spray mist vaccine. Studies have shown that 80 percent of people who get the flu shot shed the virus for about 7 1/2 days after being vaccinated.  Whether they get sick or not, they are contagious to others during this time.

4. The influenza shot may not be right for this year’s flu

A new batch of immunizations are made every year. However, the companies that make it have to guess which strain of the flu will be going around that year and they make that year’s shot based on their best guess.

If a different strain goes around, the shot will be completely ineffective, while still being toxic. Do you really want to take that chance with your health?

5. Flu shots can promote stronger varieties of the flu – in the future

Studies have shown that the continued use of flu shot can cause the influenza virus to mutate and become stronger and harder to treat. It’s the same thing that’s happening with the overuse of antibiotics.

6. Flu shots can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease

One recent study showed that those who got a flu vaccine shot for three to five years in a row were at a 10 times greater risk for developing Alzheimer’s than those who got fewer or no shots. The neurotoxins in the injection are once again a likely culprit in a devastating side effect of getting this shot.

7. The push to give flu shots is all about money, not health

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is a 15-member panel responsible for deciding who should get immunizations each year. Most of the panel members have financial investments in the pharmaceutical industry.

Naturally, the panel is increasingly recommending that everyone get vaccinated every year, and sometimes even more than once a year. The panel members make money with every shot. Can we really trust their “expert” advice?

8. Flu shots increase the incidence of neonatal deaths

A 2012 study, by Dr. Gary Goldman, showed a 4,250 percent increase in the number of neonatal deaths that year.  This was the same year that guidelines were released that recommended pregnant women get two flu shots.

9. Flu shots contain antibiotics

Does that make sense to you?  Why would you use antibiotics for a flu that’s caused by a virus?

So, getting a flu shot contributes to the overuse of antibiotics that is creating super-strains of bacteria.

And, as a side note, antibiotics tend to kill the beneficial bacteria in your body and make you more prone to getting ill during any flu season.

Here’s the point: Western medicine is completely controlled by pharmaceutical interest.  This means you will never see them promote safer alternatives to the flu shot for disease prevention.

Yet we know – a healthy (organic) diet; vitamin D/K2 and vitamin C supplementation; adequate rest and physical activity plus many other effective (natural) strategies can help you completely avoid the flu – without the need for toxic medications.

Bottom line: Ignorance is not bliss.  Don’t ever take your health for granted and always make an informed decision.
