Return of the Swine Flu Pandemic

by Jeff Cordeiro

Return of the Swine Flu PandemicIn spite of our last Swine Flu Pandemic scare being much ado about nothing, the sequel is ready for a big holiday release. The governments spent one billion additional dollars for vaccines that have been “fast-tracked” and our children have been targeted.

Fast-tracking means the new vaccines have not been tested as thoroughly as vaccines which move through the normal licensing process. 

In other words, a fast-tracked vaccine will be available for use long before it is proven safe.

According to CDC recommendations, school children who have never had a flu shot may need four flu shots this fall – two doses of the seasonal flu vaccine, and another two for the swine flu. Everyone else should expect to receive three shots.

Keep in mind that the flu shots that you will be given are vaccines for flu strains the medical community believes will be the most problematic. The theory is that, by exposing your body to a weakened version of these strains, your body can create the appropriate anti-bodies before being exposed to the real thing. 

Unfortunately, the experts' "best guesses" only cover a few of the potentially thousands of strains of influenza. If you are exposed to one of the strains not covered by your flu shots, your body will have to attempt to create anti-bodies to fight that strain as well, with an immune system that has already been taxed by the multiple flu shots it has been exposed to.

All this wouldn’t be so horrifying if the cure wasn’t worse than the potential illness it is meant to prevent but such may not be the case. This is not just my opinion. 

Here’s a video clip of an interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on MSNBC:

Here is an excerpt from an article by Dr. Mercola:

Flu Shots Simply Don’t Work

Because addressing the potential side effects of these untested swine flu vaccines is not the only problem here. Numerous studies have shown that flu shots simply do not work. Why would this case be any different? For example:

  • According to the 2006 Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 51 separate studies concluded the flu vaccine worked no better than a placebo in 260,000 children ranging in age from six months to 23 months.
  • A study published in the October 2008 Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine found flu vaccines in young children have made no difference in the number of flu-related doctor and hospital visits.
  • As reported in a 2004 publication of the Archives of Disease in Childhood, a study of 800 children with asthma concluded those receiving a flu vaccine had a significantly increased risk of asthma-related doctor and emergency room visits.
  • A more recent study released at the 2009 American Thoracic Society International Conference showed children with asthma who received FluMist had a 3-fold increased risk for hospitalization.

And not only are vaccines ineffective in preventing flu in your children, they are equally useless for adults, including the elderly.

  • According to the 2007 Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, studies of over 65,000 healthy adults concluded vaccinations reduced the risk of flu by only six percent, and reduced missed work days by less than a single day. Vaccinations did not reduce the number of people who sought medical help or took time off from work.
  • The 2006 Cochrane Database also includes a review of 64 vaccination studies of the elderly across nearly 100 flu seasons. The studies showed flu vaccines were ineffective in preventing the flu in either nursing home patients or elderly living in the community.
  • A study published in the Lancet last year found that influenza vaccination was NOT associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia in older people. This supports a study done five years ago, published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
  • Research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also confirms that there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza and pneumonia, despite the fact that vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15 percent in 1980 to 65 percent now.

Last year, researchers with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institutes of Health published this conclusion in the Lancet Infectious Diseases:

“We conclude that frailty selection bias and use of non-specific endpoints such as all-cause mortality have led cohort studies to greatly exaggerate vaccine benefits.”

Flu Vaccines Pose Significant Health Risks to Your Children

Most flu vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a deadly preservative that is 50 times more toxic than regular mercury. If taken in high enough doses, it can result in long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions.

Disorders associated with mercury poisoning include autism, attention deficit disorder, multiple sclerosis, and speech and language deficiencies.

The Institute of Medicine has warned that infants, children, and pregnant women should not be injected with thimerosal, and yet the majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of it.

It has been calculated that, by age two, American children have received 237 micrograms of mercury from vaccines alone, which far exceeds the current EPA “safe” level of 0.1 mcg/kg per day.

Toxic substances found in various flu and other vaccines include:

  • Ethylene glycol (antifreeze) 
  • Neomycin and streptomycin (antibiotics) 
  • Resin and gelatin - known to cause allergic reactions 
  • Formaldehyde – a known cancer causing agent 
  • Aluminum -- a neurotoxin linked to Alzheimer’s disease 
  • Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™) – which can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis 
  • Triton X100 (detergent)

Here is a video clip by Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center ( reporting that, by the summer of 2009, Gardasil (another fast-tracked vaccine) had already caused more than 15,000 reports of vaccine reactions, including more than 3,000 injuries and 48 deaths.

To be fair, there are just as many voices out there stating that vaccines have nearly eradicated diseases like the measles, small pox and the mumps – which is almost true. The vaccinations have nearly eliminated known cases of these diseases. However, the viruses are still around and who knows how they’ve mutated?

The more medicines we throw at viruses, the tougher the viruses become. The more we rely on medicines to fight viruses for us, the weaker our immune systems become. So, you have to weigh the pluses against the minuses.

One side claims that you are trading vaccinations to eliminate deadly diseases and it is true that diseases like the mumps and measles were, at one time, the causes of a great many deaths. However, I had both diseases as a child and I’m still alive and kicking and healthier than most I might add.

The other side claims that you are trading the very small risk of catching a disease very few people now get to remove the possibility of increasing the chances of getting Autism (1 in 167 children are now diagnosed with Autism).

Have vaccinations saved lives? Most certainly. Have vaccinations been the cause of some deaths? Yes. Do vaccinations cause Autism? It depends on who is quoting the data and how you interpret it. 

However, if you are going to believe the medical community when they state that mercury (see how mercury damages the brain) is dangerous and that a certain level is accepted as safe, then anything that exceeds that level must be considered unsafe. Therefore, most vaccinations are not safe. You can't have it both ways.

If you are concerned about mercury, you probably know to be concerned about certain types of fish too but did you know mercury may also be found in high fructose corn syrup? This is the sweetener that Americans get about 10% of their calories from. Click here for more on this.

As always, I hope you found this article beneficial and thought-provoking. I invite you to do your own research and draw your own conclusions.
