Doctors commonly recommend the flu vaccine. Even employers and pharmacies are promoting and pushing the vaccine for each year. The question, though, that should be asked is: “Do they work?’ Unfortunately, at least in the case of last year’s (2014) vaccine, the answer may have been “No.”
The CDC admitted that the 2014 vaccine did not work. Gary Franchi writes,
“For the first time we can remember, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are going on the record, saying the flu vaccine won’t work this year. The warning comes just before the busiest part of flu season, in January and February. Unfortunately, there won’t be any refund for any of the patients or insurance companies who spent money on flu shots earlier this fall.
“But don’t worry. Just when you thought perhaps the CDC could boost their credibility, they found a way to put a sales pitch on the end of their warning. The CDC says if you do come down with the flu, there’s a cure. It’s just going to cost more money. Money that will end up profiting pharmaceutical giants, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche. CDC officials are urging doctors to prescribe two specific antiviral medications for any patients who come in with flu symptoms.”
So, unfortunately, the CDC screws up and then wants us to pay for it. The question remains, are any of the flu vaccines usuable and safe? That is questionable. If the vaccines even work, are the other health concerns of these vaccines justified by that health benefit such as mercury contamination? Mike Adams again writes,
“Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)
“The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found in this flu shot was higher than anything we’ve ever tested, including tuna and ocean fish which are known for high mercury contamination.
“In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we’ve ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally. As my previous research into foods has already documented, mercury consumed orally is easily blocked by eating common foods like strawberries or peanut butter, both of which bind with and capture about 90% of dietary mercury.”
Unfortunately, there seems to be a pattern for CDC and other government health agencies to make recommendations that line the pockets of the corporations lobbying them for favors, and these recommendations come at our expense. Do your research and be informed.
