We've heard it all before.
Media scoundrels hype fear. So do drug companies. Doing so boosts sales.
On January 11, The New York Times headlined "Flu Season Deaths Reach
Epidemic Level but May Be at Peak, CDC Says."
Winter is flu season. It's commonplace every year. Some years are
worse than others. Cold, low humidity, indoor crowding, lower light levels
adversely affecting the immune system, and other seasonal factors increase
Most often, flu symptoms are annoying and temporarily debilitating.
Deaths and serious complications are less commonplace. Some alleged flu
or pneumonia-related fatalities are wrongly reported. People aren't told
what they need to know.
According to the Mayo Clinic, common flu symptoms include fever
of 100.4 or higher, chills, blocked or runny nose, dry cough, sore throat,
muscle aches, extreme fatigue, loss of appetite, and headache.
Mayo Clinic’s Dr. James Steckelberg says flu "make(s) you feel awful,
but if you're basically healthy and you're not pregnant, take care of
yourself at home rather than going to your doctor."
Steckelberg recommends taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuphofen
(Advil, Motrin) to reduce fever and muscle aches. Drink clear fluids.
Water, broth or sports drinks work fine. Get plenty of rest and sleep.
Vitamin C and D, natural herbal remedies, zinc and other important
trace minerals, as well as healthy living are effective ways to avoid
illness or limit its effects when it strikes.
Rest and patience usually bring relief in two or three days. Some
commonly recommended treatment options are best avoided.
Gilead Sciences developed Tamiflu. Bush Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld headed the company. He was a major shareholder.
In October 2005, Pentagon commanders ordered all US military personnel
worldwide vaccinated against Avian Flu (H5N1). Headlines hyped fear.
Rumsfeld budgeted over $1 billion to stockpile Oseltamivir. Consumers
call it Tamiflu. Bush asked Congress for another $2 billion.
Rumsfeld's conflict of interest was suppressed. It later leaked
out. It hardly mattered. Gilead's share price increased over 700% in weeks.
Dr. Joseph Mercola calls Tamiflu ineffective and dangerous. According
to FDA documents, 12 Japanese children, aged one to 16, died after taking
Dozens of "neuropsychiatric events" were reported. They included
delirium, abnormal behavior and hallucinations. Multiple instances of
severe skin reactions were discovered.
All drugs have side effects. Some pose greater dangers than others.
On January 11, Natural News headlined "Flu epidemic strikes millions
of Americans already vaccinated against the flu."
CDC officials calls the current outbreak the worst in a decade.
It urged everyone to get flu vaccines.
"But here's the dirty little secret the vaccine industry doesn't
want you to know," said Natural News. "Most people getting the flu right
now are the same (ones) who were vaccinated with the flu shot."
CDC officials don't explain. Doing so would blow their cover. They
quietly admit what everyone needs to know. Millions take annual flu shots
without knowing their dangerous ingredients.
Flu and other vaccines contain harmful stabilizers, neutralizers,
carrying agents, and preservatives.
They include 25 micrograms of mercury (thimerosal). It's a known
neurotoxin. One microgram is considered toxic.
NIH says "mercury and all of its compounds are toxic. Exposure to
excessive levels can permanently damage or fatally injure the brain and
"Exposures to very small amounts" can also cause "allergic reactions,
neurological damage and death." Flu and other vaccines are linked to autism.
Vaccines contain aluminum hydroxide and phosphate. They're linked
to various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease.
The Office of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
reports x-ray evidence of pulmonary fibrosis among workers studied.
It says patients undergoing long-term kidney dialysis develop speech
disorders, dementia, or convulsions.
Vaccines contain formaldehyde. It's a known carcinogen according
to the National Cancer Institute.
It's linked to upper respiratory tract problems. It effects lymphatic
and hematopoietic systems (relating to human blood cells).
Other disturbing ingredients include:
gelatin, polysorbate 80 and resin; they cause
severe allergic reactions;
ammonium sulfate; it's a suspected gastrointestinal,
liver, and respiratory toxicant and neurotoxicant;
sorbitol; it's a suspected gastrointestinal and
phenoxyethanol (antifreeze); it's a suspected
developmental and reproductive toxicant;
beta-propiolactone; it's a known carcinogen and
suspected gastrointestinal, liver, respiratory, skin and sense organ toxicant;
gentamycin; it's an antibiotic;
triton X100; it's a strong detergent;
animal tissues and fluids; they include potentially
contaminated horse blood, rabbit brain, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick
embryo, chicken egg, duck egg, pig blood, and porcine (pig) protein/tissue;
calf and fetal bovine serum;
macerated cancer cells;
diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue; and/or
other ingredients varying by producer.
Contrary to popular advice, flu shots and other vaccines are dangerous.
Independent experts urge avoiding them.
Dr. Viera Scheibner is one of the world's most respected scientists,
scholars, and vaccine experts. Her work revealed vaccine pseudo-science.
It's fraught with inconsistencies and false conclusions, she says.
She calls "vaccinators the snake oil salesmen of our time."
The vaccine industrial complex is "an illness industry." It causes
a "pandemic (of) degenerative diseases (and) behavioral problems."
"Ever since the turn of the (last) century, medical journals published
dozens and dozens of articles demonstrating that injecting vaccines (can)
cause anaphylaxis, meaning harmful, inappropriate immunological responses,
which is also called sensitization."
"(This) increase(s) susceptibility to the disease which the vaccine
is supposed to prevent, and to a host of related and other unrelated infections."
"We see it in vaccinated children within days, within two or three
(Most of them) develop runny noses, ear infections, pneumonitis,
"It is only a matter of degrees, which indicates immuno-suppression,
(not immunity). It indicates the opposite."
"So I never use the word immunization because that is false advertising.
It implies that vaccines immunize, which they don't. The correct term
is either vaccination or sensitization."
In addition, "Vaccines (can) damage internal organs, particularly
the pancreas," so everyone vaccinated, including for seasonal flu, is
vulnerable to contracting severe "autoimmune diseases like diabetes,"
Addison's Disease, Arthritis, Asthma, Guillian-Barre Syndrome, Hepatitis,
Lou Gehrig's Disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoporosis, Polio,
and dozens of others.
Some kill. Others cause lifetime disability and pain. It's because
autoimmune diseases happen when the "body attacks itself." More accurately,
it's attacked by unhealthy living, stress, and harmful ingestible substances.
Gary Null is perhaps America's leading health and nutrition expert.
He's a foremost advocate of alternative medicine and natural healing.
He's an author, award-winning journalist, as well as Progressive
Radio Network founder and executive producer. It's the leading online
alternative media source. It hosts this writer's Progressive Radio News
Null calls flu shots and other vaccines a "dark inferno." Most people
have no idea what they're taking or the potential harm it causes. Removing
dangerous contaminants from vaccines is impossible.
Minute amounts cause trouble. Vaccines are "genetic experiments."
They're able to "caus(e) mass cellular destruction." The old saying goes
what you don't know may harm or kill you.
Toxins can trigger "a pandemic of vaccine disease." Numerous later
in life illnesses reflect it. Governments complicit with business sacrifice
human health for profits. Politicians betray their public trust.
Whether this year's flu hysteria is real or hype matters less than
how people respond. Everyone's responsible for their own well-being.
Dangerous toxins masquerade as protective drugs. Producer profits
matter most. Good health depends on avoiding what causes more harm than
good. It's not rocket science. It's as simple as doing the right thing.
