Remember 2009’s exaggerated H1N1 swine flu story?  For weeks, we were barraged with countless news reports with public health “experts” ratcheting up the panic and warning of the coming pandemic.  We were urged to have our families vaccinated with the only real protection, the H1N1 vaccine, or else!

So, here we are three years later and the “dreaded” flu season is upon us.  Major media is presenting only one side of this story.  And absent the fear of the swine flu virus, drug companies are now incentivizing us in more creative ways like offering drug store flu shot gift cards.

As we head into the flu season, we bring you a brief, but vitally important HealthAlert, today on LivingFuelTV.

You may have heard that there is no longer the toxic heavy metal mercury in vaccines, but that is not the case for flu vaccines.  Here is a list of just a few of the ingredients:

  • Mercury or Thimerosal (49% mercury by weight, used to disinfect and preserve the vaccine), mercury is a neurotoxin with a toxicity level one-thousand times the level of lead
  • Formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing agent
  • Aluminum, a neurotoxin suspected as playing a role in Alzheimer’s disease
  • Ethylene Glycol, an antifreeze
  • Carbolic Acid
  • Polysorbate 80
  • Triton X-100, a detergent
  • and a variety of antibiotics

It’s well-documented that vaccines can cause harm.  So, is the benefit worth the risk?  This question is one that you will have to answer for yourself and your family.  First, educate yourself then make an informed decision.

One of the most disturbing news items about the flu vaccine this Fall is the sad story about a woman in Washington D.C. who became very ill soon after receiving this year’s seasonal flu shot. Read this article from NBC in Washington and be sure to watch the video interview with Desiree Jennings and her husband.

Other news concerning the flu vaccine comes to us from Canada. Helen Braswell, Health Journalist for The Canadian Press, wrote:

“Unpublished Canadian data are raising concerns about whether it’s a good idea to get a seasonal flu shot this season.

Drawn from a series of studies from British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario, the data appear to suggest that people who got a seasonal flu shot last year are about twice as likely to catch swine flu as people who didn’t.

A scientific paper has been submitted to a journal and the lead authors – Dr. Danuta Skowronski of the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control and Dr. Gaston De Serres of Laval University – won’t speak to the media. Journals bar would-be authors from discussing their results publicly before they go through peer review.

While few people appear to have actually seen or read the study, the puzzling findings have been a poorly kept secret and many in the public health community in Canada have heard about them.”
