I have been reading many articles recently concerning the efficacy of the various vaccines. Below are some salient bullet points, and the link to the full article at the bottom. Enjoy
• Only 20 years ago, 32 million doses of influenza vaccine were available in the United States on an annual basis. Today, the total has skyrocketed to 135 million doses.
• The studies that underlie the CDC’s policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims.
• Promoting influenza vaccines is one of the most visible and aggressive public health policies in the United States, says Doshi of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Drug companies and public officials press for widespread vaccination each fall, offering vaccinations in drugstores and supermarkets.
• The main assertion of the CDC that fuels the push for flu vaccinations each year is that influenza comes with a risk of serious complications which can cause death, especially in senior citizens and those suffering from chronic illness. That’s not the case, said Doshi.
• An Australian study that found one in every 110 children under the age of five had convulsions following vaccinations in 2009 for H1N1 influenza
• “The vaccine is completely worthless, and the government knows it.”
• Yet a study by the Cochrane group studied hundreds of thousands of people and found it offered zero protection in the general community.
• A study released in February found that the flu shot was only 9 percent effective in protecting seniors against the 2012-2013 season’s most virulent influenza bug.
• “They also know the studies have shown that the flu vaccine has zero — zero — effectiveness in children under five.”
• Why do drug companies push the flu vaccine? “It’s all about money,” says Dr. Blaylock. “Vaccines are a pharmaceutical company’s dream. They have a product that both the government and the media will help them sell, and since vaccines are protected, they can’t be sued if anyone has a complication.
Until next time,
