Why you should avoid taking the seasonal flu vaccine

(NaturalNews) Every year around this time, the vaccine industry, through its vast network of corporate-government health agencies and mass media partners, begins drumming fear into the minds of the public about seasonal flu in order to drive as many people as possible to get vaccinated with a flu shot. And it seems as though every year, more and more evidence also comes to light illustrating precisely why people should not get a flu shot, at least not without carefully considering the serious ramifications of participating in this annual injection ritual.

As you likely have already noticed, it is pretty difficult to go out anywhere in public these days and not come across various signs, banners, and billboards plastered with phrases like, "Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your flu shot" or "Get the shot, not the flu." And yet, no matter how aggressively the vaccine industry tries to push the flu vaccine on the public, it will always remain an unproven, fear-driven, pseudoscientific scam that offers no measurable health benefits.

'Benefits' of flu shot statistically insignificant

Last year, for instance, a study out of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota revealed that, at best, the flu shot has a measly 1.5 percent effectiveness rate -- for every 100 people vaccinated with a flu shot, only 1.5 of them will avoid getting the flu. At worst, the flu shot is entirely useless, as the same study showed that about 97 percent of people who do not get a flu shot also do not get the flu. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

Put another way, flu vaccines are about 98.5 percent ineffective, which means the vast majority of people who get a flu shot are deriving absolutely no health benefit. Again, this is in a best case scenario where potential margins of error are ignored and statistical anomalies are set aside. In all reality, there is actually not a shred of indisputable evidence proving that flu shots are at all effective for preventing the flu in anyone.

36,000 people a year do not die from the flu

And yet the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), eager to dispense 135 million doses of flu vaccine this year, is waging psychological warfare on the public by repeating equally false claims about how hundreds of thousands of people end up in the hospital every year as a result of influenza infection, and that about 36,000 of them die from flu-related complications.

In truth; however, only a few dozen people at most die every year as a direct result of flu infection -- the rest of the deaths lumped into the flu category are actually attributable to pneumonia, which is often a result of a severely compromised immune system. And in some cases, weak immunity caused by the flu shot itself is responsible for deaths blamed on flu infection. (http://www.infowars.com)

Flu shots come with a myriad of potential side effects

Besides their ineffectiveness, flu shots also come with an array of potentially-deadly side effects that health authorities rarely disclose to the public. Such side effects include things like brain damage and dementia -- many flu shots still contain toxic mercury, after all (http://www.naturalnews.com/031870_flu_shots_brain_damage.html) -- seizures (http://www.naturalnews.com/029334_flu_vaccines_seizures.html), and even flu-like symptoms, which defeats the point of even getting a flu shot in the first place.

Vitamin D, 'superfoods' far more effective than flu shots at preventing flu

At the same time, the public is not being told that vitamin D, which is most easily obtained through natural sunlight exposure, is far more effective at preventing the flu than any flu shot ever will be (http://www.naturalnews.com/029760_vitamin_D_influenza.html). Supplementing with immune-boosting "superfoods" like spirulina, garlic, and medicinal mushrooms, while drinking plenty of clean water and getting plenty of rest, will also help you avoid getting the flu far better than a flu shot.
