Flu Paranoia Season is Here

Posted in category Medical Establishment

The flu paranoia season is upon us, and, as usual, the government-medical complex is ramping up its fear mongering over … the flu. Coughing, sneezing, sore throat, diarrhea, fever, and other simple stuff has been elevated to life-and-death status. When I was a child, no one thought much about the flu – no one wanted to be sick, but if you got the flu you did your best to plow through it and get over it. Sure, the flu can kill some folks whose immune systems are not prepared for the onslaught, as can many other minor seemingly minor events, but healthy people also die falling off of porches and ladders in an unexpected manner.

I wrote about this issue at great length during the 2009-2010 scare campaign, pointing out that the whole crusade – first the swine flu, and then the seasonal flu – was driven by special interests (Big Pharma rent-seeking) and government control (growing federal power/bureaucracy and promoting collective health as superseding the individual). Additionally, the whole campaign was undergirded by scientific misinformation (studies promoted and funded by the beneficiaries of flu shots) and media acceptance of the falsehoods and folly.

Back in August, when the flu shot fear mongers began to flaunt the propaganda, USA Today produced this article: “CDC: Don’t Skip This Year’s Flu Shot.” “Don’t skip” points to the fact that after the swine flu hysteria fail of the 2009-2010 season, a declared pandemic that was nothing more than a spit in the wind, the general public caught on to the dog-and-pony show. Overall, in spite of those folks who still live their lives on sounds bites from the government-media propaganda machine, many people began to reject the nonsense, and therefore they spurned the flu shot. The government did not expect that after all of its purposeful misinformation and spin, people would “skip” the all-important flu shot because they began to question the hype. The perfidious pandemic and its propaganda promotion quickly became a bust, a flop, a non-pandemic.

For the 2011-2012 flu season, the flu shot promoters will have to line up a better campaign to overcome the skepticism and brush-off from much of the general public. The article from USA Today notes that the CDC says it is not okay to skip your flu shot this year.

“All people aged 6 months and older should be vaccinated,” said Dr. Carolyn Bridges, an associate director for adult immunization at the CDC‘s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

Protection wanes over the course of a year, so “even people who got a flu vaccine last year should get one again to make sure they are optimally protected,” she said.

Since at least August, all of the drug stores – Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid – have had advertisements plastered all over their stores and outdoor signs, luring people in for flu shot bargains.

Dr. David Brownstein, from the Center for Holistic Medicine in West Bloomfield, Michigan, has published a blog – “Should You Get a Flu Shot?” Dr. Brownstein points out the various studies showing that flu shots are not effective, but he really adds value when he tells you why you should not get a flu shot.

Before you vaccinate for the flu, you should understand what is in the vaccine. The flu shot contains a mixture of egg proteins including bird contaminant viruses. It also contains polysorbate 80 (associated with infertility in animals), formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), Triton X100 (detergent), sucrose (sugar), and thimerisol (50% mercury by weight). The multi-dose flu vaccines still contain mercury which is the third most toxic item known to mankind. You should not ingest or inject any mercury containing products. Looking at this cornucopia of toxic ingredients should make it clear that it is best to avoid injecting the flu vaccine in any living being. 

Flulaval, the most commonly prescribed flu vaccine on the market, contains 25ug of mercury per dose along with formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde, as stated above, is a known carcinogen. In fact, this dose of thimerosol exceeds the EPA’s safety limit of mercury exposure by over 250 times. Mercury is a known neurotoxin and is the third-most toxic element known to mankind. Injecting mercury into any living being should be outlawed.

Yet public health officials, who have their own interests to move forward, keep repeating that the benefits of the flu shot (not getting the flu for a few days?) outweighs any potential risk (destroying your body and/or brain due to nerve cell damage, neurological damage, immune function impairment, damaged DNA etc). I would expect that any reasonable human being blessed with a head upon his shoulders can understand that this is a twisted rationale, and only someone with some very heavy skin in the profit-and-power game would dare to make such a pronouncement.

    I need some help. I have a 12 yr old daughter. My ex, her father is insisting that she get the flu shot. He just had a baby and his wife won’t let her go to their house if she doesn’t. I told them that I do not agree with the flu shot. My daughter does not agree either. We found the homeopathic Influenzinum and my daughter said that was the only thing she would do. She has taken the first dose and will take the second in a month. Now her dad says it’s not good enough and wants her to take the shot now or she can’t go with them. He says that the flu virus used is not any good in Influenzinum because it is diluted. It is only the molecular structure of the original molecule that remains. Wouldn’t it be the same as the flu virus being killed in the vaccine?
    My daughter feels pressured. He says the shot at CVS doesn’t have Thimerosal in it but that is not the only reason I don’t agree with the flu vaccine. Do you know where I could find info to back Influenzinum, and now that she has already taken it, should she get the shot right after she has done the Influenzinum? Please help!!

    And apparently b/c the scare tactics AREN’T working, health care organizations nationwide have starting requiring all employees to get a flu shot or lose their jobs. No joke, no exaggeration. The one I work for says that anyone who has not complied w/the order to get a flu shot (or who has an exemption approved by the selfsame organization) wil be considered to have voluntarily quit their job as of January 1. Other healthcare systems have done this in other places and I can find no record of anyone who has successfully fought this.

    Sorry to hear about your predicament. Maybe you should just try and tell your ex-husband that you and your daughter have made a decision and that, if he doesn’t like it, he can just wait until late November (after flu season). By then, you’ll also be vindicated because nobody will have gotten ill and so you’ll also be able to make fun of him for his pompous hysterics!


    I know what you mean: my girlfriend was bullied into taking it at a hospital where she works – although I’ve never heard that it is literally mandatory before. If employees want to avoid this poisonous potion, I have heard that you can claim you have religious objections to it.


    Do you think that there’s a significant possibility that the reason the media and government have been pushing this on people the past decade or so is because of a grander sterilization/de-population agenda? Alex Jones has been theorizing this for a few years and, since one of the molecules in this poison is associated with infertility, that definitely matches up with the hypothesis. A loved one of mine had a sudden and mysterious miscarriage (the obstetrician was literally befuddled and said he saw no cause for it at all) and, for that and other reasons, I do believe that Alex Jones’s theory of a large and conspiratorial de-population/sterilization agenda has a lot of merit.

    I ran across this great photograph that sums up my feelings about vaccines.


    In case the link doesn’t show up, it’s a photograph taken in a CVS store of a skeleton holding up a sign pushing flu shots. Although I’m sure they simply intended to play off Halloween, the association between a skeleton and vaccines is just too perfect to ignore.

    Dave, thanks for the thoughts. We were in fact offered a medical (allergic) or religious exemption, but merely claiming your religion does not allow it is not sufficient. You need to provide details of what that religion is and the name of your religious leader (which to me sounds pretty damn invasive) and then the healthcare systeme decides if it’s legitimate or not….really, it is just unbelievable. The thing I fear most about it is that once this succeeds here, other local healthcare systems will surely follow along. Once THEY follow along, soon we will be requiring teachers, janitors, school lunch ladies, check-out personnel in stores, and in short EVERYONE to get a shot for the same bogus reasons the healthcare systems are using–”to protect our patients/clients/customers/whatever.”

    You’ve gotta spell out your entire religion for the bureaucrats just to even have a CHANCE that they’ll grant you a stay of execution from their lethal injection?

    Man, those loop holes are never as effective as you hope they are.

    Just unbelievable how shamelessly evil the government is.

    I had to get the MMR for work (I never had the mumps) and I got sick for 24 hours. The nurse told me the virus is dead but the ingredients in the vaccine are what make people sick. And I was sick.

    I pretty much agree with the assessment of flu vaccines for all of the reasons you list, and refuse to get one for myself.
    However, I fear that Dr. Brownstein damages his credibility when he states that mercury is the “third-most toxic item known to mankind”. Since I can think of at least a dozen substances that would be 100% fatal were 25mg to be injected, that must mean that 25mg of mercury is 100% fatal. We would not be having this discussion were that the case.
    He may have meant to say something different, in which case he should choose his words more carefully.

    Stewart, the articles says 25ug of mercury. This is not 25mg. No good in either case, but without actually looking it up, I’d guess that an actual injection of 25mg mercury might kill you or leave you brain-dead.
