(NaturalNews) More than 100 Americans will be deliberately infected with live influenza viruses this year as part of a devious government medical experiment designed to help the pharmaceutical industry develop new flu vaccines. The Associated Press (AP) reports that the experiment, which is taking place at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland, will involve injecting live viruses into the noses of human guinea pigs, who will then receive $3,000 in compensation for their participation.
Ignorant about the vital role that nutrition, rest, hydration and exposure to natural sunlight play in building a strong immune system where the flu is unable to take hold, government scientists are attempting to identify previously unrecognized targets inside the body that might respond more positively to future generations of vaccines. These conventional quacks admit that they have no idea how the immune system even works to prevent the flu, so they are once again taking the vaccine approach to preventing disease.
"It may sound bizarre, but the rare type of research is a step in the quest for better flu vaccines," admits AP Medical Writer Lauran Neergaard about the ridiculous endeavor. "It turns out that how the body fends off influenza remains something of a mystery."
A mystery to the medical-industrial complex, perhaps, but not to all those forward-thinking doctors and naturopaths out there who understand human physiology and the function of the human immune system in warding off and preventing disease. In the case of the flu, a robust immune system supported by flu-fighting "superfoods" -- and specifically high levels of vitamin D -- is already capable of blocking the flu virus
without a vaccine.
A 2012 study on vitamin D published in the peer-reviewed online journal PLOS ONE
found that the prohormone, which is naturally produced by the body in response to sunlight exposure, regulates the levels of T cells responsible for killing the flu
virus. An international research team determined that maintaining high levels of vitamin D naturally stimulates the increased production of both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, which are known to destroy the flu virus
"We observed that elevated serum 25(OH)D3 and 1,25(OH)2D3 levels in summer were associated with a higher number of peripheral CD4+ and CD8+ T cells," wrote the authors in their paper, which is cited by the same government agency currently injecting millions of viral fragments into healthy people's bodies.
Government ignores flu-preventing benefits of vitamin D because vaccines are far more profitable
It should be noted that the Vitamin D Council has compiled extensive scientific research on vitamin D's role in preventing and mitigating disease, including its role in thwarting the influenza virus. This information is freely available and thoroughly debunks the farcical claim that modern science still has no idea how a robust immune system naturally thwarts infectious diseases like the flu.
But as most of our readers probably well know, vitamin D, which is freely obtained from the sun during the summertime and can be purchased very inexpensively in the form of supplemental vitamin D3 during the wintertime, does not generate the same types of profits that flu vaccines do. Because of this, millions of taxpayer dollars will be wasted trying to develop the next generation of flu vaccines to replace the existing failed flu vaccines.
"To enhance the body's immune system, vitamin D... [p]roduces cathelicidin and defensins -- [t]hese proteins have antiviral effects to combat viruses," explains the Vitamin D
Council. Vitamin D also "[r]educes inflammation -- [a]s a result, body temperature does not rise as much, and the lining of the lungs is less disturbed. This makes it harder for bacteria to give rise to pneumonia."
