(NaturalNews) A teenage Virginia athlete is in a wheel chair now after suffering Guillain-Barre Syndrome within hours after receiving an H1N1 swine flu vaccine shot. 14-year-old Jordan McFarland developed severe headaches, muscle spasms and weakness in his legs after being injected. He will need "extensive physical therapy" to recovery, reports MSNBC. Plus, he'll need the help of a walker for four to six weeks.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is the name given to anyone who exhibits a particular set of neurological symptoms including muscle weakness and muscle spasms. GBS is now increasingly occurring following H1N1 vaccine injections. It was diagnosed in thousands of patients following the 1976 swine flu vaccine scare, and it appears to be recurring here in 2009 as the swine flu vaccine makes it into more widespread distribution.

Health authorities, however, remain adamant that H1N1 vaccines are never the cause of GBS, and that such diagnoses are "pure coincidence." This blatantly unscientific P.R. tactic is designed to dismiss any and all concerns over the neurological side effects of H1N1 vaccines by simply denying they exist. To date, the CDC has received reports of five additional people being diagnosed with GBS following swine flu vaccinations, but it dismisses them all as coincidence. "It's much less than we'd expect," says CDC official Dr. Claudia J. Vellozzi. (Which is sort of interesting all by itself, because it reveals that the CDC expects a lot more people to get GBS following vaccine injections...)

At the same time, part of the reason the CDC isn't receiving many reports on neurological disorders caused by H1N1 vaccines is because they participated in a massive media brainwashing event that prepped the population to dismiss all side effects by pre-announcing the bizarre idea that "side effects experienced after vaccine injections are not related to vaccines."

This was an organized, nationwide media brainwashing campaign engineered by the CDC, FDA and drug companies. It sought to pre-program health consumers to automatically dismiss serious side effects that appeared in the hours after receiving swine flu vaccine injections.

The campaign worked. In fact, even the GBS of this young man, Jordan McFarland, wasn't submitted to the CDC. It only came to light when his step-mother submitted details to MSNBC.com's reader reporting tool. In other words, this was citizen journalism at work, where a parent submitted information directly to the media.

For this to occur is exceedingly rare. Most parents would simply wait for their doctor to submit such information to health authorities, not knowing that submitting reports of vaccine-related side effects remains voluntary in modern medicine.

No requirement to report vaccine side effects

You read that right: There is no requirement that doctors send reports of vaccine side effects to any health authority at all. And that raises the question: So how do they really know how many people are suffering neurological side effects from the H1N1 vaccines?

The answer? They don't. Nobody knows.

And that's the way the drug companies (and the CDC) would like to keep it. Because reports of neurological disorders tend to (understandably) freak people out and make them more cautious about receiving swine flu vaccines -- especially given how mild swine flu is in the first place. As drug companies well know, the best way to sell more vaccines is to pretend the side effects don't exist at all. That has become the standard operating procedure of the vaccine industry: Deny, deny, deny. Bury the truth and pretend it doesn't exist. Keep the vaccines flowing and keep consumers guessing. Declare all vaccines to be perfectly safe with zero side effects, and widen the target consumer base to include children and pregnant women. This is the mantra of the vaccine industry.

Consider this: If teen boys wound up in the hospital after taking a dietary supplement, the FDA and media would have gone crazy over the report. The FDA would have issued public warnings and perhaps even confiscated the products from the supplement manufacturer. Or if these kinds of symptoms were being reported after people take medicinal herbs, you'd see a similar media frenzy as accusations of the dangers of the herbs appeared all over the 'net. But somehow when the medicine is a vaccine -- a vaccine that has NEVER been tested in a scientific clinical trial -- the drug industry gets a free pass! All side effects are dismissed. All the people hospitalized, paralyzed or killed are simply forgotten and written off as unimportant.

This is the state of the vaccine industry today: It is corrupt, highly dishonest industry that poses a clear and present danger to the health of the People. And yet absolutely nothing is being done to protect the people from unsafe vaccines. No clinical trials are being done. No cautions are being advised. All concerns are simply dismissed out of hand, with absolutely no intelligent scrutiny or investigation.

No questions allowed

That's really what the vaccine industry has become today: A cabal of "untouchables." You can't question vaccines without being derided as a quack. You can't demand vaccine clinical trials without being labeled a "non-believer." Vaccines have become the cult of modern medicine. You're supposed to simply line up, drink your Kool-Aid take your vaccine shot, obey all directives (do what you're told) and above all stop asking questions!

But here at NaturalNews, we refuse to stop asking questions. In fact, we have more questions all the time, like why is a healthy young boy suddenly in a wheel chair within hours after receiving a swine flu vaccine shot?

Why have no placebo-controlled clinical trials ever been conducted on ANY flu vaccine?

Why do we even need a shot for H1N1 when the epidemic is so mild that it has only killed a fraction of the number of people who normally die from seasonal flu?

Why did the FDA grant approval for four H1N1 vaccines all on the same day, without any scientific testing at all?

Why are people so easily brainwashed / scared into taking vaccine shots when all they really need is vitamin D?

And for that matter, why does there continue to be a media blackout on the use of vitamin D to prevent swine flu infections?

These are the questions we should be asking, but these are the questions considered "off limits" by health authorities and the complicit mainstream media. At least MSNBC had the guts to print this story about 14-year-old Jordan McFarland. Most media outlets would have simply canned the story right from the start.
