“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
– Marcia Angell, M.D., F.A.C.P.- First female editor-in-chief of NEJM and one of Time Magazine’s 25 most influential Americans of 1997
Health and wellness is a very passionate subject for me, which is why I am going to be temporarily shifting gears from what I had originally intended on covering. The physical body is the vessel where the spiritual alchemy that this blog ultimately focuses on takes place. If we are in a state of physical toxicity and disease, we will more than likely not be so concerned with achieving connection with the Higher Self- we will be concerned with surviving. For this reason (and many others) you should probably not get a flu shot, and you definitely should not give it to your children.
I know, you may be saying to yourself; “What? Is he on that whole Jenny McCarthy vaccine conspiracy bandwagon? It’s people like that who are getting the rest of us sick.”
Quick question for those who wholeheartedly buy into that marketing campaign (and make no mistake, vaccinations are a billion-dollar BUSINESS): If you truly believe the flu shot is so effective, then why would it matter if others weren’t vaccinated as long as you were? Doesn’t the flu shot protect you from those disease carriers?
While I could go on for quite an extended amount of time about the “cult of vaccination” and the petrochemical/pharmaceutical/agri-science companies behind it and how their representatives go back and forth between these select corporations, government regulatory bodies (CDC, FDA, USDA), and academia, I will save that for another time. For now, let’s just look at some news headlines:
Flu vaccine protects against wrong strain, US health officials warn- London Guardian
Why scientists GUESSED wrong on this year’s flu vaccine- Washington Post
Mutated flu strain makes flu shot less effective- News 10
CDC Warning: flu viruses mutate and evade current vaccine- NBC News
From reading these headlines you would think that this mutation of flu viruses was some sort of new and scary phenomenon. However this is not remotely true. James F. Bach, M.D. stated in his co-authored book, Prescription for Natural Cures:
“The influenza viruses mutate constantly, changing their structure just enough so that it is more difficult to build up immunity to them.”
In fact there are over 300 documented strains of the influenza virus. Dr. Edward Group, founder of the Global Healing Center in Austin, Texas remarked that it was impossible to develop a truly effective flu shot because the virus replicates so often. He is not alone in this claim. The Cochrane Collaboration, an independent medical research group consisting of some of the world’s top health professionals found that with so many strains of the virus, the likelihood of a vaccine produced nearly a year before it is released to the public matching the current virus strain is virtually zero.
This group found looking at 50 studies involving more than 70,000 people, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, that under “ideal conditions”– the highly unlikely possibility that the vaccine matched the virus perfectly- 33 people needed to be vaccinated to avoid one flu attack. Under “average conditions” with only partial matching of the virus- 100 people would need to be vaccinated to avoid one case of influenza. The conclusion was that at best, the flu shots may be effective against only 10 percent of all circulating influenza viruses.
Of course it should be re-stated that this was an independent study. An independent review of 247 vaccine studies found that all those paid for by the vaccine manufacturer worked, while almost none with independent funding did so. I should probably mention that the CDC has had numerous, well-documented conflicts of interest when it comes to vaccine manufacturers and should not under any measure be considered an independent organization.
One more word about mutations- the vaccine manufacturers are now creating what are known as trivalent and quadrivalent strains in the shots. That is to say they are mixing multiple strains of the flu together. This could create an atmosphere for potential mutations, especially if a live virus was “accidentally” used. Folks may remember the former head of the EU who came out a while back, stating that Baxter Drugs, a U.S. based company, did just that- sending over vaccinations containing live H1N1 viruses. Other vaccines tainted with live avian flu viruses in the Czech Republic as well as Bayer’s tainted vaccines containing HIV have also been documented.
This segways nicely into the second reason why you should not get a flu shot- what is in the shot itself. Most flu vaccinations contain a list of ingredients that have been shown can cause sterility in males as well as causing reproductive complications in females. There are also scientifically proven endocrine disruptors as well as antibiotics, which could be aiding in the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
A major ingredient in the flu shot is thimerosal- a mercury compound patented by the pharmaceutical giant, Eli-Lily and Co. While it was removed from the MMR vaccine in the U.S. after a rash of bad publicity linking it to autism in children, it is still very much in the majority of flu vaccines. It should be noted that flu vaccines are being promoted for children as young as 6 months, as the CDC openly states that more children are getting vaccinated for the flu than ever before.
For those who do not know, mercury is a toxic metal. The level of mercury in a flu shot is 3.5 times above the EPA’s guidelines for what is the maximum level of mercury exposure deemed safe. In a 6 year old, this turns into 12.2 times the safe level. In a 6 month old infant it is 16.2ing e times the safe limit. And as pregnant mothers are now being encouraged to get a flu shot, this gives their fetus in utero 250 times what is safe.
The linking of childhood autism to vaccines in general and thimerosol in specific has been a hot topic for a while. This has been re-ignited when it came out this summer that a CDC scientist in the immunization branch, William Thompson admitted to being told by the organization to “cook numbers” in a study done into the vaccine-autism link. This story went largely unreported in the mainstream media, but that is not surprising given the amount of pharmaceutical ads on sees on TV. Meanwhile the degenerative neurological disorder, Guillain–Barré syndrome is an admitted possible side-effect of vaccination by the manufacturers and the CDC.
Mercury bio-accumulates in humans, meaning it is absorbed and remains in the system until it is flushed out in some form of detoxification program. Think about the amount of this chemical that is accumulating in your system if you get a flu-shot once a year for 20 years. Coupled with aluminum, another preservative in most flu shots, this can be very dangerous. Aluminum acts as an adjuvant to the mercury- accelerating its neuro-toxic process in the body by an order of incredible magnitude, literally frying neurons in the brain. This quite possibly could be one reason why diseases like Alzheimer’s are on the rise.
The National Toxicology Program admit in their own documents:
“Thimerosal was found to cross the blood-brain and placenta barriers.”
The “…hazards of thimerosal include neurotoxicity and nephrotoxicity.” (This means brain and kidney toxicity.)
Formaldehyde, a chemical used to preserve dead things is also another ingredient in most flu shots. This “pickling” chemical is highly toxic to the nervous system and is known to cause blindness, brain damage and seizures. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services admits that formaldehyde causes myeloid leukemia, and rare cancers including sinonasal and nasopharyngeal cancer. You can see this for yourself on the National Toxicology Program website.
Monosodium Glutamate, or “MSG”, a known “excito-toxin”, is in some of these shots as well. Excitotoxins cause brain neurons to be overexcited to the point of death. MSG is better known as a food additive, known to cause migraine headaches and endocrine system damage.
The following are PDF documents of a flu vaccine insert, a comprehensive list put out by the CDC of various vaccines and their ingredients, and a study done by a prominent neuroscientist concerning aluminum toxicity.
Another ingredient specifically in the Fluvax flu vaccine is madin-darby canine kidney cell proteins. Folks reading this may or may not be aware of the monkey cells that were used in the polio vaccines starting in the 50s and 60s. It was declassified several decades later by the CDC that these cells contained what is known as the SV40 virus, which is a known cause of specific types of cancer.
There are many ethical questions that arise with the injection of animal RNA and DNA into humans, as well as ethical questions of how these cells are being acquired. Viruses are known to “break into” RNA and DNA of humans and animals and cause mutations at the genetic level. This is cause for concern with those concerned about maintaining “purity” in the physical body. Alchemically speaking, there is a lot to be said about the implications of injecting heavy metals and animal DNA and RNA into the human genome, but I will save this for another time, for now, “just the facts”…
The simple fact is that while the concept of gaining immunity to a pathogen through exposure when healthy is a natural thing, however injecting a pathogen, dead or alive is not. Up to 80% of a person’s immune system is located in their digestive system, while the rest is in the mucous membranes of the respiratory system. There are multiple filters that anything needs to go through here before they reach the interior of one’s system. Viruses, bacteria, toxic chemicals all go through this process. If we did not have this protective barrier, we would not last one day on this planet. However, when you inject something directly into the bloodstream, it completely bypasses your actual immune system.
Dr. Edward Group stated:
“(Immunization) technology was never meant to be injected into the body. Your immune system doesn’t work that way. The way your immune system works is you breathe (the pathogen) in (or digest it) and then the way that your receptors react with your white blood cells and your neutrophils- they react with an antigen to develop an antibody… When you shoot anything inside you via needle; nothing like that ever happens in nature, so your immune system freaks out. It causes an immune response and it’s harder for your body to develop an antibody. You have a lot of side-effects and the flu vaccine can lower your immune response causing susceptibility to bacterial infections, pneumonia, etc…”
The history of vaccines is an interesting one, and the vaccine industry’s claim to have greatly reduced or eradicated certain diseases is a dubious one that has a hard time standing in the face of serious investigation. I will be delving into this aspect a bit more extensively in the future as well, but for now let’s just say that the advancements of things like running water, waste management, proper hygiene and nutrition have far more to do with disease prevention than injecting a “dead” virus incased in toxic sludge into your bloodstream.
When humanity attempts to “improve” upon nature through bypassing Her Laws, he experiences the illusion of short-term gains in exchange for the reality of long-term suffering. I realize this is a loaded statement that could inspire a book and hours of debate, but until then, I’ll quote naturopath Dr. Judith Boice:
“In jettisoning the wisdom of classical medicine, the conventional medical system has lost invaluable resources. Gone is the knowledge of supporting the body and working with the healing power innate in the human body. Largely gone is a true understanding of investing in health as a means of prevention. Unfortunately, the big guns of conventional medicine have provided people with a false sense of security. Many people assume that they can continue to eat lifeless food, avoid exercise, smoke, and drink to excess, then be ‘saved’ from illness later in life by the wonders of modern medicine… Such ‘miracles’ exact as many payments as they offer rewards, and the borrowing margin is the health and vitality of our bodies.”
I have done my best to provide a good deal of documentation for this posting, and I encourage folks to do their own research as well. In the end, people will make up their own mind as to what to believe and not to believe. All I’m suggesting is taking a second look and being open to the fact that what you believe to be true might be wrong. I will be adding a list of natural alternatives to vaccination that I use myself in part 2 of this posting. In the meantime, take care and stay healthy.
