There’s been a lot debate about flu shots lately. Ironically, even some health experts warn that protecting yourself and your family from the flu vaccine is more important than protecting yourself from flu.
On the other hand, each year we’re subject to great propaganda by the pharmaceutical industry, medical experts and the mainstream media work, all of whom strongly promote the flu vaccine.
However, we rarely hear about the side effects this vaccine causes or the toxic chemicals it contains.
11 Reasons Why Flu Shots are More Dangerous Than the Flu Itself
1# Flu vaccines contain other dangerous ingredients such as mercury
Although we are repeatedly been told that flu vaccines contain strains of the flu virus, we are never told about the long list of other ingredients such as mercury, a heavy metal known to be extremely dangerous for human health. Mercury toxicity has been linked to depression, memory loss, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory problems, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances and other serious health issues.
2# Makes you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases
Injecting strains of the flu virus can have serious health consequences in people with an already suppressed immune system. The thing is when your body is already fighting a virus or you’re dealing with suppressed immunity, a vaccine is only increasing your risk of contracting influenza with stronger symptoms, or, in the worst case scenario, pneumonia and other contagious diseases.
3# The flu shot actually makes you sick
If you’re a parent, you’ll know that children typically get sick almost immediately after a shot. It’s because the flu virus is introduced into their bodies, and instead of immunizing, the flu shot only sensitizes the body against the virus.
4# Increased risk of narcolepsy
The flu shot has led to onset of narcolepsy – a chronic sleep disorder in several reported cases of children in 12 different countries. The study conducted between October 2009 and December 2011 compared 3.3 million vaccinated Swedes with 2.5 million who were not vaccinated. Surprisingly, the youngest people who took the vaccines were at the highest risk. To be more specific, the risk of narcolepsy was 3 times higher for those under the age of 21.
5# Weakens immunological responses
Injecting vaccines can lead to harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections. This has been confirmed by thousands of medical journal articles. Plus, weak immunological responses only compromise a person’s ability to fight the diseases that the vaccine was supposed to protect against in the first place.
6# Serious neurological disorders
Flu vaccinations have repeatedly been linked to some serious neurological disorders. In 1976 a significant number of those who were vaccinated against flu developed Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), a disorder manifested by permanent nerve damage and even paralysis. Flu vaccines can contain a number of dangerous ingredients including detergent, mercury, formaldehyde, and strains of live flu virus.
7# The flu shot can cause Alzheimer’s disease
Flu vaccines have even been lined to Alzheimer’s disease. According to the finding of a study conducted by Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, a leading immunogeneticist, those who get the flu vaccine regularly are at a 10-time higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Fudenberg ascribes this to the toxic combination of aluminum and mercury in the vaccine. In addition, introducing the flu virus to an elderly person, who already has a suppressed immune system due to old age, will only make that person more vulnerable to illness.
8# Children under the age of 1 are at risk
Children under 1 year are especially susceptible to a neurotoxic breach of the delicate nerve center surrounding the brain and central nervous system. The first round of the flu vaccine is administered at age 6 months. A child under the age of 1 doesn’t have the proper protection to defeat premature damage to the blood barrier in the brain.
9# Vascular disorders
Medical research has linked flu shots to an increased risk of vascular inflammation. The most common symptoms are fever, jaw pain, muscle aches, pain and stiffness in the neck, upper arms, shoulder and hips and headache.
10# Lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots
51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 – 23 months found that the flu vaccine isn’t more effective than a placebo. Moreover, flu shots only protect against certain strains of the virus, which means you can still easily contract flu if you come into contact with a different strain of virus.
11# The very people pushing flu vaccinations are making billions of dollars each year
In August 1999, the Committee on Government Reform instigated an inquiry into Federal vaccine policy. The study focused on possible conflicts of interest on the part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The results showed that many individuals serving on two key advisory committees had financial ties to the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture vaccines. These individuals were often granted waivers to fully participate in the discussions that led to recommendations on vaccine licensing and adding vaccines to the Childhood Immunization Schedule. Taking this into account, you can only wonder how effective these shots really are.
