The Truth Behind the Flu Vaccine: What your doctor won´t tell you



November is here and so are the beginning of runny noses, sore throats, and Flu Vaccine advertisements. It seems as though vaccines are becoming a hot topic now a days, it is one of the most controversial topics in the healthcare field. As someone who is passionate about health, I wanted to find out the facts for myself, and it amazes me how much information is withheld from general knowledge. I doubt most doctors know what most vaccines consist of, sure the ¨main intentions¨ of a vaccine are good, but unfortunately it isn´t that plain and simple. We can´t just get poked with a needle and all of a sudden have super powers that protect us from all harm. Sadly, that is what is conveyed most of the time, and to the general population who looks to doctors as an all knowing, all perfect being, they will listen to anything they are told and follow orders given. I hope this will encourage you to get both sides of the story and become fully educated about the whole story of the flu vaccine, how it functions, what it does to our bodies, and the hidden and serious risks involved.


1. It Contains Preservatives including Mercury. Flu vaccines contain a preservative called ¨Thimerosal¨, a compound that is 50%. FDA website quotes ¨Over the past several years, because of an increasing awareness of the theoretical potential for neurotoxicity of even low levels of organomercurials and because of the increased number of thimerosal containing vaccines that had been added to the infant immunization schedule, concerns about the use of thimerosal in vaccines and other products have been raised.¨ Supposedly, the FDA is trying to get manufacturers to lower the levels or remove it entirely, but the only way to know if your flu vaccine has this neurotoxin is to first find out the brand and contact the company yourself.

FDA website states: ¨…preservatives may be defined as compounds that kill or prevent the growth of microorganisms, particularly bacteria and fungi. They are used in vaccines to prevent microbial growth in the event that the vaccine is accidentally contaminated.¨It is a law that they require these preservatives. Did you see the word ¨kill¨ microorganisms? That preservative is being injected into our bodies! This preservative may kill harmful fungi, but it does much more than that. Just like preservatives in our food are killing us, these preservatives are no different.

Studies have showed the Mercury accumulates in the brain. Did you ever make the connection that flu vaccines have sky rocketed right along with the rates of Autism and Alzheimers? Both are caused by an imbalance in the brain. A U.S. study found that children who received vaccines containing thimerosal, were more than twice as likely to develop autism than children who did not! According to Tom Verstraeten, an epidemiologist who had analyzed data on the CDC's database, thimerosal appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and other neurological disorders. He offered no cause for correlation for these findings, but held that the statistical evidence linking vaccines and neurological disorders was strong. but In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. As a result, thimerosal was banned in 1980. Mercury poisoning has also been linked to cardiovascular disease, seizures,mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions. That's why the FDA rigorously limits exposure to mercury in foods and drugs, but why allow it in vaccines??…$$$ Unfortunately the flu vaccine isn´t the only one with mercury problems… Some vaccines, such as vaccines for hepatitis B, contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. That's more than 100 times the EPA's upper limit standard when administered to infants.

2. Vaccines OVERLOAD our immune system. I thought vaccines were supposed to ¨prevent¨us from getting sick? Instead, they suppress our immune system so we are more vulnerable to illness. How do they do this? The chemicals, the viruses in the vaccine, and the DNA/RNA from foreign animal tissues all act to suppress our immune system. We are risking a lot here! Our only defense against the millions and millions of germs and pathogens we face every second of the day is our incredible immune system! When this is suppressed, we are in big trouble. This suppression doesn´t just last a few hours, but months at a time, and if an invader pathogen takes hold of our weakened state we can be down and struggling for who knows how long. Read this great article my Dr. Mercola as he goes in depth on this topic.

3. You are only protected against one or two strains of virus. However, there are MILLIONS of flu causing viruses in the world, and if we come face to face with a strain other than the one in the vaccine, the vaccine offers no benefit and it is all up to your now depressed immune system to fight it off.

4. Vaccines can be seen as the root of MANY diseases. "I never saw cancer in an un-vaccinated person."-Dr W B Clarke, circa 1909. Yes, not everybody gets cancer after receiving a vaccine, but their body has been seeded with the ingredients for cancer to grow. It is the environment which allows cancer to grow in the first place, and vaccines create that environment.. It has been known for over 2 centuries now that vaccines clog our lymphatic system. Our lymphatic system is what filters our blood and keeps us ¨clean¨on the insides. When these lymph nodes become clogged it can develop into a very serious problem causing many diseases including cancer. ¨Our lymphatic system is designed to carry our lymphocytes throughout our body and maintain control over our cellular immunity. Therefore, the injection of large molecular sized proteins (foreign tissues in the vaccines) will clog our lymph-nodes and create problems for the lymphatic system. Therefore, it is no mystery that vaccines and lymphatic diseases, like leukemias and lymphomas, are related.¨(Mercola)

5. Much more than a flu virus in the syringe. Each company and brand varies slightly on their ingredient list. Here are some examples of what they contain:

Ingredients: (sources are manufacturers statements.)
FluMist®: (MedImmune) Live attenuated cold adapted virus*, allantoic fluid (egg white), sucrose, potassium phosphate, and monosodium glutamate. Source

FLUARIXTM: (GlaxoSmithKline) Chicken embryos, virus*, sucrose, sodium deoxycholate, formaldehyde, sodium phosphate, sodium chloride, octoxynol-10, Alpha-tocopheryl hydrogen succinate, and polysorbate 80, trace thimerosal (<1.25 mcg mercury per dose). Each dose may contain residual amounts of hydrocortisone, gentamicin sulfate, ovalbumin, formaldehyde and sodium deoxycholate.

Fluzone®: (Aventis-Pasteur) Chicken embryos, virus*, formaldehyde, sucrose, octoxinol-9, sodium phosphate, sodium chloride, Gelatin, thimerosal in the 5mL vials (25 ug mercury/dose), no thimerosal in prefilled syringes.

As you can see, there are many chemicals, preservatives, and toxic substances that are injected into us with each flu vaccination.Here is a great page that goes more in depth into each ingredient and how it is harmful.

In conclusion,  I hope seeing the other side of the flu vaccine will help you make a more informed decision when choosing weather or not to vaccinate yourself and your family. Our immune systems are an incredible tool in fighting disease, and as long as we take care of ourselves through proper nutrition, rest, and exercise, our bodies will take care of any bumps along the way. In my next post I will address the best ways to prepare your body through flu season naturally and effectively.
