Achoo! One Sneeze Infects 150 People in Five Minutes

New research reveals that a single sneeze in a busy commuter area propels millions of germs onto hand rails, seats and other common surfaces found in a commuter environment. Within minutes, that one sneeze can deposit enough germs to infect 150 people.

But that's only if those 150 people have weak immune systems, of course. That's a fact the conventional medical community fails to point out. Germs don't cause infectious disease nearly as much as suppressed immune systems do.

When a human being has adequate levels of vitamin D in their blood (and almost no Westerners do), they're virtually immune to common infectious diseases. Zinc also helps tremendously because it causes the nasal passages to physically block airborne germs from latching on to tissues and replicating.

If 150 people are present in the immediate environment following a sneeze, the 100 or so who actually get sick will be the 100 with the weakest immune systems.

What causes weakened immune systems? Acidic diets (sugars, processed foods, etc.), pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise and other lifestyle factors.

According to conventional medicine, however, the answer to solving the airborne germ problem is not to teach people how to have healthy immune systems but rather to vaccine them all! Of course, this strategy is virtually useless, since Winter flu germs mutate constantly, and this year's flu shot is only effective against LAST year's flu.

That's why most of the people getting flu shots are the very same people catching the flu every year. And yet, amazingly, this is the very reason they tell themselves they need to keep getting flu shots: "Because I keep catching the flu!" Crazy circular logic, huh?

Flu shots are modern medicine's quackery. There's no way to even determine if they work. If you get a flu shot and don't catch a flu, the doctor says, "Good thing you got that flu shot. It worked!" On the other hand, if you get the flu shot and then catch a flu, the doctor says, "Good thing you got the flu shots, or it could have been worse!"

In other words, it's all just stupid circular logic that's indicative of a cult-like belief in flu shots rather than anything resembling honest science. I've looked at the "science" behind flu shots. You know what the hard numbers reveal? They prevent the flu in about one percent of those receiving the shots. That's 1 out of 100, folks. You'd have better odds at the craps table in Vegas.

Quite a scam they've got going, though.
