Flu Shots Harm Your Health-part 1

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Every year at this time we are bombarded and badgered by mainstream medicine about flu shots.  I have written several articles on these topics, so I hesitate to bring you yet another series on the flu shot.  Since they don’t give up trying to shoot you up with this poison, I take it as my duty to continue to inform those who haven’t heard the alternatives available.  The next two articles were actually written by my oldest daughter as an English composition essay.  I couldn’t have written it any better, so I’m just going to present it in a two part series. 

A study of vaccinations in infants and of Infant Mortality Rates published in Human and Experimental Toxicology has shown that vaccines are linked to high infant mortality rates – the more vaccinations infants receive, the more infants will die (Miller). With this knowledge, what parents would willingly allow a child to receive unnecessary vaccinations that have the potential to harm the child? The answer, quite simply, is none. This is especially true if there is a natural preventative with nearly the same or a greater success rate as the artificially produced vaccine. Such is the case with the influenza vaccine. The influenza vaccine is unnecessary for people of any age because the industry falsely portrays information to the public about the vaccine’s creation, effectiveness, and necessity; the flu shot industry also attempts to conceal studies proving vitamin D a highly effective alternative to an influenza vaccine.

Every year, medical doctors and pharmacies urge people to receive flu vaccines. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season.” The theory behind this statement is that when a person receives a flu vaccine, the body becomes acquainted with that particular strain of the influenza virus. If the body would ever encounter that same virus again, it would be able to quickly respond and destroy the virus before it has a chance to cause sickness. This process is also supposed to greatly reduce the chances of the flu spreading from person to person. Therefore in theory, if everyone receives the vaccine, the virus has no chance of spreading, a concept known as herd immunity. However, this theory of immunization has a few major holes that not even the best of conjectures can fill in without solid proof, something that studies have not yet been able to provide.

The concept behind flu vaccines seems simple enough, but a deeper look at how the flu vaccine is created reveals a different story. In order to produce the flu vaccine, officials must first determine which strains of the flu virus to use in the vaccination. So in January or February, these officials will travel to Asia to test for influenza (“Flu Vaccine Exposed”). The strains that seem to be the most common are the ones that the officials record and bring back to the United States to include in the vaccinations. Because those certain strains of influenza were widespread in Asia, officials assume that the same strains of influenza will reach the United States later that year around October. However, they have no way of knowing for certain which strains will make it to the United States, or if the strains will mutate into something new before reaching the country. Essentially, the basis for producing influenza vaccinations is guesswork. And although scientists do guess correctly some years, the majority of years the strains of influenza virus in the vaccination do not match the strains circulating throughout the United States.

Because this process is not very accurate, the efficacy (effectiveness) of the vaccine is low. According to the CDC, “A randomized study looking at the 2007-2008 influenza season found … inactivated vaccine (flu shot) protected 7 out of 10 people from influenza illness.” However, in 2010 The Cochrane Collaboration, “a widely respected research-analysis team,” reviewed 50 previous studies conducted on the efficacy of influenza vaccines, some dating back to 1996 all the way up to 2010 (Rappoport). The findings were devastating to the flu vaccine industry, and therefore well-hidden from the public. Only recently, on October 5, 2012, were the study and findings published.

The major conclusion the Cochrane study cites is that “vaccines administered parenterally, that is, outside the digestive tract – which generally means by injection – reduced influenza-like symptoms by only 12%” (Stevenson). This statement alone negates the CDC’s single study that states a protection rate of 70%. The Cochrane study also found that “… industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies…” (Stevenson). The influenza vaccine industry conducts its own studies, but other public, unbiased sources conduct studies as well. When all these studies were juxtaposed and analyzed, it became apparent that the studies performed by the industry itself were the studies that received publication and recognition in prestigious journals. Studies funded and performed by independent sources were “significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines” and therefore were not published (Stevenson). In the words of the Cochrane study report authors, “… there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions…” (Stevenson).

The conclusion of this essay will be printed in two weeks.  It will continue to prove that the flu shot has no redeeming value for your health.  Their research is manipulated and simply made up to fit the premise that shots keep the flu away.  It isn’t true, and never has been.  Don’t let them feed you that line of malarkey, and ruin your good health.
