Flu Vaccines Revealed As The Greatest Quackery Every Pushed In The History Of Medicine

For those who are faced with this question, so frequently, that you would rather hit a tape recorded answer to deal with such questions, here is an article that is worth printing and handing out or forwarding to patients, family and friends alike. It is an article I came across and stood out far above many others I have read on the topic.

A Review of Four Approved Swine Flu Vaccines’ Ingredients

Posted by: Dr. Mercola
November 05 2009

I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I'm not anti-vaccines, but rather pro vaccine-safety. That means, I strongly believe that we should only inject substances into our bodies, and especially into the bodies of infants and the unborn, that have been rigorously studied and proven safe both short-term and long-term.

As it stands now, we've spent decades injecting materials into the bodies of young and old alike, without sufficient amounts of safety testing of the ingredients, and our society is showing the signs of this neglect.

Neurological dysfunction and disorders such as autism and Alzheimer's have been growing steadily and show no signs of slowing down.

Mercury, in the form of thimerosal, is included in the majority of all flu vaccines as a preservative in multi-dose vials. Thimerosal-free single-dose vials are typically reserved for infants under the age of three, and pregnant women only.

I recently published a long list of studies confirming the health dangers of thimerosal -- proof that those who claim "thimerosal has never been shown to cause any damage" are not telling you the truth. There's plenty of evidence to the contrary, and if you missed that article, I recommend you review it now.

But thimerosal is not the only questionable and potentially dangerous ingredient in flu vaccines.

Adjuvants Explained


In order for a vaccine to be considered effective, your immune response to the vaccine should be to produce antibodies to the live or dead viruses in the vaccine (the antigen). An adjuvant is a substance added to a vaccine to improve your immune response to the antigen. The word comes from the Latin adjuvare, which means "to help."

By adding adjuvants the vaccine can contain less viral antigens, which reduces production costs.

Unfortunately, many of these adjuvants are highly toxic.

There are several types of adjuvants. Some of the most commonly used ones include:

* Aluminium hydroxide
* Aluminium phosphate
* Calcium phosphate

Other adjuvants include oil-based emulsions such as squalene, Squalene has not been licensed by the FDA for use in vaccines distributed in the U.S. yet, although squalene is an adjuvant used in vaccines distributed in Europe and other countries.

GlaxoSmithKline's proprietary formula ASO3™ and Novartis' MF59™ are two examples of squalene adjuvants.

As damaging as the neurotoxin mercury is, it's important to realize that aluminum is also a neurotoxin and aluminum-based adjuvants are estimated to be even MORE toxic than mercury.

GREAT NEWS -- No Squalene Allowed in US Swine Flu Vaccines!


Fortunately, Americans can draw a sigh of relief as it pertains to squalene -- one of the most controversial of the adjuvants -- at least for now.

Although vaccine manufacturers were pushing to be allowed to use squalene in many of the swine flu vaccines, and the US Department of Health and Human Services purchased spent more than $400 million of tax payers' money to stockpile the oil-based adjuvant, their efforts have been unsuccessful so far.

In order to legally allow unlicensed squalene adjuvants to be included in licensed H1N1 vaccines, the US government would have had to issue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

There have been small H1N1clinical trials in which experimental squalene adjuvants were included and tested, which have been reported by various media sources, fueling the questions about its use. But that is different from an FDA licensed vaccine that is made available for general public use.

To date, no EUA has been issued, so the swine flu vaccines licensed for use in the US do NOT contain squalene. However, it is still unclear whether the National Emergency declaration issued by President Obama on October 23, 2009, will cover adding novel adjuvants like squalene, or whether a separate EUA must be issued to allow the use of unlicensed adjuvants.

The best way to confirm the existence of vaccine components is to consult the vaccine product manufacturer inserts. Below, you will find links to the inserts for the four H1N1 vaccines licensed for use in the US.

You may also want to review the transcript of the July 23, 2009 meeting of the FDA Vaccines & Related Biological Products Advisory Committee for more information on the discussion about whether the FDA should issue an EUA and allow unlicensed adjuvants in US vaccines.

Thankfully, so far, the FDA has declined to approve squalene adjuvants for US H1N1 vaccines, but that does not mean that the drug companies will not continue to press for approval in the future.

Beware: European Vaccines May Contain Squalene


Unfortunately, vaccine manufacturers have persuaded countries in Europe and elsewhere to add squalene to seasonal influenza and H1N1 vaccines, so if you live outside the US, you will need to do some further research to determine which vaccines may contain squalene.

A recent article in the English version of the German news source The Local, for example, warns that the German Defense Ministry has ordered a special stock of H1N1 vaccines for their troops that will contain neither mercury nor adjuvants, whereas the general public will be given vaccines containing both.

When checking for squalene, beware that the ingredient called MF59™ is an oil-in-water emulsion of squalene, Tween™80 (polyoxyethylene sorbitan monooleate), and sorbitan trioleate.

MF59 is approved for human use in Europe, but not in the U.S.

Four Swine Flu Vaccines have Gained US FDA Approval


Below I will review the list of ingredients for the four swine flu vaccines that gained U.S. FDA approval on September 15. (As of this writing, GlaxoSmithKline is the only contracted vaccine manufacturer that has not yet gotten their swine flu vaccine approved.)

Please note that there may be additional anti-virals available that are being used to treat swine flu, and/or swine flu vaccines on the market in other countries, but this article only covers the following four vaccines that have received FDA approval for use in the US:

* MedImmune (intranasal spray)
* Novartis
* Sanofi-Pasteur
* CSL

These companies, along with GlaxoSmithKline, have all been awarded contracts by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for development and production of more than 195 million doses of swine flu vaccine.

For more information, warnings and side effects of each ingredient, please follow the hyperlinks provided.

MedImmune

MedImmune, which is a subsidiary of London-based AstraZeneca, offers an intranasal spray that contains live attenuated virus. The package insert for MedImmune's intranasal vaccine can be found here.

Please note that the adverse reaction information for MedImmune's vaccine is based on studies conducted with the seasonal flu version known as FluMist.

Please review the insert for numerous warnings, contraindications, and adverse reactions.

Of special note are the warnings that it should not be administrated to children and adolescents (2-17 years of age) receiving aspirin therapy or aspirin-containing therapy, because of association of Reye's syndrome.

In addition, it's important to realize that safety has not been established in individuals with underlying medical conditions predisposing them to influenza complications.

MedImmune's vaccine also should not be administered to any individual with asthma, or children under the age of 5 with recurring wheezing because of the potential for increased risk of wheezing post vaccination.

Lastly, please note that some viruses contained in this and other intranasal vaccines CAN spread from the vaccinated person to others. Hence, if a person has a compromised immune system, he or she could be placed at risk of infection from people who have been vaccinated. The ease of transmission appears to vary from strain to strain.

Dosing Instructions for MedImmune Intranasal Spray vaccine:

* Children 0-2 years: Not approved
* Children 2-9 years: 2 doses, 0.2 ml each, approximately one month apart
* Children and adults between the ages of 10-49 years: 1 dose, 0.2 ml
* Adults 50-65: Not approved, as FluMist was found to have no demonstrable effectiveness in this age group
* Seniors 65 and over: Not approved
* Pregnant women: Not recommended

Ingredients include:

* Live, attenuated virus
* Monosodium glutamate. MSG is a known neurotoxin and excitotoxin.
* Egg proteins
* Sucrose (table sugar)
* Dibasic potassium phosphate
* Monobasic potassium phosphate
* Gentamicin sulfate (antibiotic)

Intranasal vaccines do not contain thimerosal (mercury).

Questionable Efficacy…


According to the insert, FluMist has demonstrated a mere 44.5 percent reduction in influenza rate when looking at all strains, compared to active controls (other flu vaccines).

Novartis

The package insert for Novartis' Influenza A(H1N1) 2009 Monovalent vaccine can be found here.

Again, the adverse reaction information for this swine flu vaccine is based on studies conducted with the seasonal flu vaccine Fluvirin, not the A(H1N1) vaccine itself.

It is worth noting that the safety data for Fluvarin (upon which the safety data for the swine flu vaccine is based), was collected from 29 clinical studies over the past 27 years that included no more than 2,768 adults.

In these studies, the subjects were observed for 30 minutes after vaccination, and were instructed to complete a diary card for the three days following immunization, to collect local and systemic reactions.

So, keep in mind that the "safety data" for this vaccine is based on studying human subjects for FOUR DAYS. Not weeks, months, or years, to see if problems occur down the line.

Please review the insert for numerous warnings, contraindications, and adverse reactions.

Dosing Instructions (intra-muscular injection):

* Children 0-4: Not recommended
* Children 4-9: Two 0.5 ml doses one month apart
* Children 9-17: One 0.5 ml dose
* Adults, 18 and over: One 0.5 ml dose

Ingredients include:

* Inactivated A/California/7/2009(H1N1)v-like virus derived from cell-cultures using dog kidneys. Physorg.com http://www.physorg.com/news175767804.html recently reported that a Swiss authority overseeing medicine and therapeutical products had found bacterial contamination in test batches of the vaccine -- a charge that Novartis has denied.
* Single-dose vials contain 1 mcg of mercury per 0.5 ml dose
* Multi-dose vials contain 25 mcg of mercury per 0.5 ml dose
* Egg proteins
* Polymyxin (antibiotic)
* Neomycin (antibiotic found in many topical medications). Neomycin is in the FDA pregnancy category D. This means that it is known to be harmful to fetuses.
* Beta-propiolactone (a disinfectant). According to the EPA: "No information is available on the chronic (long-term), reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of beta-propiolactone in humans. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified beta-propiolactone as a Group 2B, possible human carcinogen."
* Nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE) (a toxic cleaning agent)

Sanofi-Pasteur

The package insert for Sanofi-Pasteur's Influenza A(H1N1) 2009 Monovalent vaccine can be found here.

The adverse reaction information for Sanofi-Pasteur's vaccine is based on studies conducted with the seasonal flu version known as Fluzone. The safety data for infants under the age of 3 is based on adverse reactions of 19 children, reported within a mere three days of vaccination.
Dr. Mercola on Facebook

Please review the insert for numerous warnings, contraindications, and adverse reactions.

Dosing Instructions (intra-muscular injection):

* Children 0-5 months: Not approved
* Children 6-35 months: two 0.25 ml doses, approximately one month apart
* Children 36 months to 9 years: two 0.5 ml doses, approximately one month apart
* Children 10 years and older: one 0.5 ml dose
* Adults: one 0.5 ml dose

Ingredients include:

* Inactivated A/California/7/2009(H1N1)v-like virus propagated in embryonated chicken eggs
* Prefilled pediatric syringes and single-dose vials are mercury-free
* Multi-dose vials contain 25 mcg of mercury per 0.5 ml dose
* Formaldehyde (up to 100 mcg). Formaldehyde is classifed as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and as a known human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
* Triton-X 100 (Polyethylene glycol P-isooctylphenyl ether) is a toxic detergent
* Sodium phosphate
* Sodium chloride (table salt)
* Gelatin
* Sucrose (table sugar)

CSL Biotherapies, Inc.


The package insert for CSL's Influenza A(H1N1) 2009 Monovalent vaccine can be found here.

The adverse reaction information for CSL's vaccine is based on studies conducted with the seasonal flu version known as Afluria.

Here the safety data is based on adverse reactions reported within 21 days of vaccination. It's also worth noting that the safety assessment studies were done using mercury-containing placebos, which may significantly skew the data as the control group would most likely experience similar side effects of the thimerosal as those receiving the actual vaccine.

Additionally, tucked away on page 10 it states that:

"No controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Afluria have been performed."

Please review the insert for numerous warnings, contraindications, and adverse reactions.

Dosing Instructions (intra-muscular injection):

* Adults only, 18 years and older: one 0.5 ml dose

Ingredients include:

* Inactivated A/California/7/2009(H1N1)v-like virus propagated in embryonated chicken eggs
* Single-dose vials are mercury-free
* Multi-dose vials contain 24.5 mcg of mercury per 0.5 ml dose
* Polymyxin (antibiotic)
* Neomycin (antibiotic found in many topical medications). Neomycin is in the FDA pregnancy category D. This means that it is known to be harmful to fetuses.
* Sodium chloride (table salt)
* Monobasic sodium phosphate
* Dibasic sodium phosphate
* Monobasic potassium phosphate
* Potassium chloride
* Calcium chloride
* Sodium taurodeoxycholate (detergent)
* Egg proteins (ovalbumin)
* Beta-propiolactone (a disinfectant). According to the EPA: "No information is available on the chronic (long-term), reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of beta-propiolactone in humans. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified beta-propiolactone as a Group 2B, possible human carcinogen."

How Effective is the H1N1 Vaccine, Really?

"Specific levels of HI antibody titers post-vaccination with inactivated influenza virus vaccine have not been correlated with protection from influenza virus. In some human studies, antibody titers of 1:40 or greater have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects."

You will find that paragraph in all the vaccine inserts.

What that paragraph says, is that the vaccine only works in half, or less, of those individuals who attain the specified level of seroconversion after vaccination. The FDA defines seroconversion as achieving an antibody titer of 1:40.

This means that if a vaccine was 100 percent effective at achieving this level of seroconversion, it would protect up to 50 percent of the recipients of the vaccine.

But none of the vaccines are 100 percent effective at achieving seroconversion.

CSL's vaccine insert, for example, (see pages 11-12), states that their H1N1 vaccine provides seroconversion for:

* 48.7 percent of people aged 18-65
* 34 percent for seniors, 65 and older

That means that, at best, their vaccine works in one out of every four people! (49 percent of 50 percent).

Which, of course, means that the vaccine does NOT work in three out of every four people…

Final Thoughts

Hopefully, this compilation of data will help you weigh the risks and benefits, to make a more educated decision for yourself and your family.

You can also print out these fact-filled posters that we created. Feel free to share them any way you like around your community, at local stores, offices, and schools.

Lastly, please remember to bookmark the special section of my site devoted to all the latest H1N1 Swine Flu Alerts. It's an excellent go-to source to stay updated on all the new swine flu developments.
A friend sent me an email from Dr. Blaylock, which I have recopied below along with the link to his bio. I have also included the long article from his web site.



His email regarding the swine flu read:



"No one should take this vaccine - it is one of the most dangerous vaccines ever devised. It contains an immune adjuvant called squalene (MF-59) which has been shown to cause severe autoimmune disorders such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. The newsletter for August covers this and it may not be out yet. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf War syndrome, which killed over 10,000 soldiers and caused a 200% increase in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This virus H1N1 kills by causing a "cytokine storm", which means that it causes the body's immune system to overreact and that is why it is killing young people and is a mild disease in the elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems) This vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real possibility of making the lethality of the virus much greater.



One's best protection is vitamin D3...One should take 5000 IU a day now and when the disease begins to spread increase the dose to 15,000 IU a day. Vitamin D3 modulates the immune reaction, reducing the chance of an overreaction and stimulates the body to produce what are called antimicrobial peptides, which are powerful killers of viruses that does not involve immunity. This is dose related, which means the higher the dose of D3 the better the protection. Antioxidants of various kinds also help.



Feel free to spread this around. People need to know to protect themselves.

Dr. Russell Blaylock: Vaccine Maybe More Dangerous Than Flu
http://www.newsmax.com/health/vaccine_swine_flu/2009/07/07/232717.html
Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu

Tuesday, July 7, 2009 9:54 AM

By: Dr. Russell Blaylock

An outbreak of swine flu occurred in Mexico this spring that eventually affected 4,910 Mexican citizens and resulted in 85 deaths. By the time it spread to the United States, the virus caused only mild cases of flu-like illness.

Thanks to air travel and the failure of public health officials to control travel from Mexico, the virus spread worldwide. Despite predictions of massive numbers of deaths and the arrival of doomsday, the virus has remained a relatively mild disease, something we know happens each year with flu epidemics.

Worldwide, there have only been 311 deaths out of 70,893 cases of swine flu. In the United States, 27,717 cases have resulted in 127 deaths. Every death is a tragedy, but such a low death rate should not be the basis of a draconian government policy.

It is helpful to recall that the Centers for Disease Control with the collusion of the media, constantly tell us that 36,000 people die from the flu each year, a figure that has been shown to be a lie. In this case, we are talking about 300 plus deaths for the entire world.

This virus continues to be an enigma for virologists. In the April 30, 2009 issue of Nature, a virologist was quoted as saying,"Where the hell it got all these genes from we don't know." Extensive analysis of the virus found that it contained the original 1918 H1N1 flu virus, the avian flu virus (bird flu), and two new H3N2 virus genes from Eurasia. Debate continues over the possibility that swine flu is a genetically engineered virus.

Naturally, vaccine manufacturers have been in a competitive battle to produce the first vaccine. The main contenders have been Baxter Pharmaceuticals and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, the latter of which recently acquired the scandal-ridden Chiron vaccine company. Both of these companies have had agreements with the World Health Organization to produce a pandemic vaccine.

The Baxter vaccine, called Celvapan, has had fast track approval. It uses a new vero cell technology, which utilizes cultured cells from the African green monkey. This same animal tissue transmits a number of vaccine-contaminating viruses, including the HIV virus.

The Baxter company has been associated with two deadly scandals. The first event occurred in 2006 when hemophiliac components were contaminated with HIV virus and injected in tens of thousands of people, including thousands of children. Baxter continued to release the HIV contaminated vaccine even after the contamination was known.

The second event occurred recently when it was discovered that Baxter had released a seasonal flu vaccine containing the bird flu virus, which would have produced a real world pandemic, to 18 countries. Fortunately, astute lab workers in the Czech Republic discovered the deadly combination and blew the whistle before a worldwide disaster was unleashed.

Despite these two deadly events, WHO maintains an agreement with Baxter Pharmaceuticals to produce the world's pandemic vaccine.

Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.

Animal studies using this adjuvant have found them to be deadly. A study using 14 guinea pigs found that when they were injected with the special adjuvant, only one animal survived. A repeat of the study found the same deadly outcome.

So, what is this deadly ingredient? It is called squalene, a type of oil. The Chiron company, maker of the deadly anthrax vaccine, makes an adjuvant called MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concernqualene and gp120. A number of studies have shown that squalene can trigger all of the above-mentioned autoimmune diseases when injected.

The MF-59 adjuvant has been used in several vaccines. These vaccines, including tetanus and diphtheria, are the same vaccines frequently associated with adverse reactions.

I reviewed a number of studies on this adjuvant and found something quite interesting. Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies, I foundo no surprisehat they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all published in "prestigious" medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases.

Squalene in vaccines has been strongly linked to the Gulf War Syndrome. On August 1991, Anthony Principi, Secretary of Veterans Affairs admitted that soldiers vaccinated with the anthrax vaccine from 1990 to 1991 had an increased risk of 200 percent in developing the deadly disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig's disease. The soldiers also suffered from a number of debilitating and life-shortening diseases, such as polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, transverse myelitis (a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart's inner lining), optic neuritis with blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).

Because squalene, the main ingredient in MF-59, can induce hyperimmune responses and induce autoimmunity, a real danger exists for prolonged activation of the brain's immune cells, the microglia. This type of prolonged activation has been strongly associated with such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS and possibly vaccine-related encephalitis. It has been shown that activation of the systemic immune system, as occurs with vaccination, rapidly activates the brain's microglia at the same time, and this brain inflammation can persist for long periods.

So, how would the gp120 get into the brain? Studies of other immune adjuvants using careful tracer techniques have shown that they routinely enter the brain following vaccination. What most people do not know, even the doctors who recommend the vaccines, is that most such studies by pharmaceutical companies observe the patients for only one to two weeks following vaccinationhese types of reactions may take months or even years to manifest.

It is obvious that the vaccine manufacturers stand to make billions of dollars in profits from this WHO/government-promoted pandemic. Novartis, the maker of the new pandemic vaccine, recently announced that they would not give free vaccines to impoverished nationsverybody pays.

One must keep in mind that once the vaccine is injected, there is little you can do to protect yourselft least by conventional medicine. It will mean a lifetime of crippling illness and early death.

There are much safer ways to protect oneself from this flu virus, such as higher doses of vitamin D3, selective immune enhancement using supplements, and a good diet.

Will Anyone in Their Right Mind Actually Buy Into These Three New Vaccines?

Posted by: Dr. Mercola
November 07 2009

1. AIDS Vaccine

A storm has erupted over the announcement last month that an experimental AIDS vaccine tested in Thailand proved modestly effective. It was billed as a major scientific advance — the long-awaited hard evidence that it is possible to inoculate people against AIDS. But now the trial has been called into question in a way that is overblown and possibly destructive.

2. Anti-Smoking Vaccine

But this isn’t the first time the efficacy and safety of a vaccine has been called into question. The government recently announced that $10 million of stimulus money would be used to fund a phase 3 clinical trial of a promising anti-smoking vaccine produced by Nabi Pharmaceuticals of Rockville, Md. However, another company working on a similar vaccine has not been so successful.

Cytos Biotechnology Ltd. said this week that a trial of its nicotine vaccine had failed to reduce smoking behaviors. The study, which is continuing, involved 200 smokers who were motivated to quit. The researchers found that the vaccine, designed to bind nicotine in the blood and prevent it from reaching the brain, was safe and well tolerated. But apparently it did not stimulate high enough levels of antibodies to produce the desired response.

3. Obesity Vaccine

The moment evidence was found that obesity may be linked to a virus, opportunistic drug company researchers dove into developing an “obesity vaccine.” Now researchers say their obesity vaccine could be ready for market in five years. Searching for genetic clues to the obesity epidemic, in the hopes of developing a vaccine against it, is not the answer.

GSK secret contract binds Government to SILENCE !


Dr Eric Beeth 2009-11-02 18:13:41

Dear all,

I am a Swedish general practioner working in Belgium, and quite involved in this issue, as together with three citizens and another GP we advised the Belgian Government last Friday in court that this is a disguised pharmaceutical trial on human subjects, with real risks involved.

I put in two comments on the story

http://theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article...

below, that are quite relevant in the context that the Swedish Newspapers have seemingly stopped reporting the intermediary results of this disguised pharmaceutical trial.

If you can read French, you will discover at

http://www.lepoint2.com/sons/pdf/vaccin-H1N1%20medias.pdf

that the maker of PandemRix, that is used in Sweden, passed a secret contract, the same in every European country, which specified a "Green List" of what the government MAY communicate (hardly anything!) and the "Red List" of what may absolutely NOT be made public, like intermediary results of the side effects that appear in the studies of the controversial squalene (and thiomersal) adjuvantated PandemRix until they have been sanitized by Glaxo Smith Kline researchers, and published by GSK themselves.

These contracts also confirm what was announced in Sweden in October, that these pandemic vaccines where actually ordered already back in 2006: there was a standing order to foresee a vaccination for large parts of the population IF the WHO would declare a PANDEMIC of degree 6. When the "New-Type" A/H1N1 appeared, and it started spreading to other continents, the WHO changed their definition of grade 6 pandemic by dropping the criteria that it should be highly deadly. Thus, the government discovered that it’s signed standing orders were passed simply to combat a new (designer!) strain of flu that may or may not become more or less lethal than the common Influenza A or B flu.

Experiments & Guinea Pigs

This has allowed GSK to do a large scale tolerance experiment of their specialy formulated AVIAN-flu vaccine "Pre-PandRix" paid for by the governments, where doctors are recruited for a large scale pharmaco-vigilance study, without being paid as researchers, and patients receive government propaganda to sign up "to protect the weak in our society", while de facto subjecting themselves to be guinea pigs in this "H1N1-dry-run" study for the future benefit of registering GSK's AVIAN flu vaccine "Pre-PandRix".

If you are to receive the "Pandremix" against the benign “new-type” H1N1-flu this season, we recommend that you first learn about the possible side effects, as GSK asked their own employees to sign an "informed consent form" before receiving the vaccine: see for ex:

http://www.asanat.org/Declaration_of_Free_and_Informed_Consent.pdf

Best regards,

Dr Beeth www.asanat.org

(See also my other comment over at

http://theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article... )

By the way: Yesterday, Sunday, I appeared on a TV debate show together with an H1N1-veterinarian vaccine developer at GSK who was very proud to announce that 8000 pregnant women had already been vaccinated in Sweden with NO PROBLEM WHAT SO EVER! See middle of this episode:

http://www.rtbf.be/tv/revoir/detail_mise-au-point?uid=38287439668&a...

That is the “GSK-sanitized” version of the truth. What is the real situation in Sweden, and what LONG TERM sicknesses will these women/children develop from the experimental vaccine trial?

Some Pregnant Women Fearful of H1N1 Vaccine

Tuesday September 29, 2009

Would or Will You Get the H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccination During Pregnancy?

Yes, without reservations.Yes. I'm concerned about the safety but the flu scares me more than the vaccine.No, I will not be getting the vaccine.I'm not sure.

An article in Minneapolis Star Tribune reports on how some pregnant women are skeptical of the new H1N1 vaccine. Pregnant women are among the groups strongly advised to get the vaccine, but many women are less than thrilled about the idea of getting the shot, reporting concerns about the safety of the vaccine and possible effects for the unborn baby.

I can definitely see where they are coming from, being someone who was concerned about safety of pretty much everything when I was pregnant. And there's not much research on the safety of any type of flu vaccine during the first trimester, much less thimerosal exposure in the first trimester, although the CDC says that flu vaccination is advisable in any trimester during a pandemic. Still, there are definite risks to catching the flu during pregnancy also -- and pregnant women seem to be at higher risk of having severe complications (including death) from H1N1 flu in particular. As with most cases, all you can really do is weigh the risks and benefits of both courses of action and discuss your concerns with your doctor -- then make an informed choice on how to proceed.

What are your thoughts? Do you plan to get the H1N1 flu vaccine, especially if you are currently pregnant or hope to become pregnant in the near future? Vote here.

I was so ready to get the H1N1 vaccine last week and they were only giving them to pregnant women. I was 6 weeks along and got it and the next day I started cramping and miscarried. I already had two healthy pregnancies and never miscarried or had any problems. My doctors think I am crazy to think it was the H1N1 but if no one looks into this than other women will not know. I am so sorry that I got it.

I also received the H1N1 vaccination on October 22nd, 2009 and went into labor on October 25th, at 16 weeks pregnant and we just heard the heartbeat and everything was fine with my pregnancy on October 16th, 2009, then on October 28th my water broke then on October 29th, I delivered a stillborn baby boy, and no one can tell me why…Everyone wants to say it did not come from the shot but I believe it did. My baby was growing at the correct pace and everyone wants to brush off the vaccination. I say if you have the vaccination and suffer a miscarriage if they are able to perform an autopsy have it done.

(9) Connie says:

I also agree something needs to be done and looked more into with this vaccination because most women are being advised it’s just something that happens, but I also had two healthy children normal pregnancies and when I received this vaccination with my third pregnancy, my baby is gone.

(10) sioux falls, south dakota says:

I received the H1N1 vaccine on October 16th and started experiencing cramping on the 22nd. I was nearly 17 weeks pregnant and gave birth to a stillborn baby boy on the 23rd. Like many of the other women here, the first thing I suspected was the H1N1 vaccine. I immediately asked a nurse at the hospital if that would have anything to do with it. Without hesitation, she told me “absolutely not.” I had reservations about getting the vaccine, but followed the advice of my long trusted family doctor. In a follow up appointment with my doctor 3 days after I lost my baby, I asked him if the vaccine would have had any adverse effects on my baby. He also said that it was not possible. I don’t believe that my doctor was necessarily lying to me, he was simply following the accepted practices and opinions of his field. I do, however, believe that as a nation, we are being lied to. This vaccine is NOT safe during pregnancy. There has not been enough testing done to determine this and there are far too many “coincidences” for this to be anything but a result of a vaccine that was hastily pushed into production and distribution in an effort to stop widespread panic. I have read so many stories in defense of the vaccine that will talk about how common miscarriages are, but I would challenge you to ask ANY health care professional how common second trimester miscarriages are. My baby was doing perfect developmentally and I had felt him move earlier that day. My heart goes out to all of you out there who have had to go through the same heartache and loss that I have had in the last couple of weeks. There is no reason that any woman or family should have to go through this. Get the word out to all of the pregnant women that you know. I know that if I had heard that women had been losing their babies shortly after they received the vaccine, I would have followed my gut and not gotten it myself. Maybe then Wyatt would have had a chance at life.

If you read the novatis or baxter pkg insert available on the web you will find that 1. there is not sufficient testing on pregnant women so they dont know how safe it is….its not recommended for children under 2 is not a fetus a child under 2? there is no conclusion on safety with breastfeeding…..

Md’s just want to scare the hell out of you for the 1% that can get very sick..If folks would just wash hands frequently, stay away from sick contacts as much as possible and take supplements and live a healthy way…you likely can avoid the flu altogether…

SOOOOO Sorry for your losses….my <3 breaks for you all
November 5, 2009 at 4:37 pm
(12) jmstork says:

I think its a fluke that those of you who got the vaccine miscarried shortly after. There are many many pregnant women whose babies are developing normally with no problems yet they still lose the baby. My sister in law is one of these people…she had a normal and perfect pregnancy, but lost her baby at 31 weeks with no explanation of why. I say discuss your concerns with your doctor, do some research, and do what is right for you. I got the H1N1 vaccine…I’m 26 weeks pregnant, and everything is fine. I’m sorry for your losses, but don’t think the vaccine is to blame. I’d much rather get vaccinated than get sick and lose my baby that way.

November 5, 2009 at 6:00 pm
(14) Anastasia says:

To “JMSTORK” I have to say to call these other examples “flukes” is irresponsible.

By my calculations based on the statistics from this page 8 out of the 10 women miscarried following the flu vaccine. That can’t be a fluke.

I am so glad that you were not one of those unfortunate women whose baby was fine one moment and gone the next but I just have to say that to disregard their concern is irresponsible and that’s what their doctors are doing.

The CDC tells us to get vaccinated and for what? Live a wellness lifestyle, eat healthy, exercise, build your immune system and stay away from people with flu symptoms and you’ll stay healthy.

This flu has hit so many people I know, my husband included, and yet my daughter and I have avoided it just fine…. without a vaccine.

Women who are pregnant are told to follow their instincts until they want to tell their doctor “no” about a vaccine, then it’s “You don’t know what’s best for you or your unborn child”. It’s all hogwash!!
November 5, 2009 at 6:13 pm
(15) jmstork says:

I’m not disregarding the other women’s concerns. I too was leary of getting the vaccine until I did research and thoroughly discussed it with my doctors. The vaccine was the best decision for me…and I understand that it’s not for everyone. So there are 8 out of 10 on here who miscarried after having the vaccine, but I bet there are many more pregnant women who were completely fine after being given the vaccine but they just haven’t posted on here. I am terribly sorry to anyone who has lost their child, but I don’t believe that it’s the vaccine that is to blame.

I don’t typically get the flu shot each year, but with what has been going on and since I have small children in school who are exposed to others who may be sick, it was the right choice for me to get vaccinated to protect myself and my unborn child. It’s all a personal choice and I’m tired of people telling me that I was wrong for getting the vaccination…if it’s not for you then that’s fine, but it was what is right for me!

To “JMSTORK”
I think before you start posting your comments, you need to keep in mind what these women have just gone through. Oh, and be sure to THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS you did not experience what these expectant mothers have…. These poor women have lost a CHILD, and your insensitivity isn’t helping. But I would also suggest keeping a very close eye on your pregnancy. Do you recall the “Thalidomide Tragedy” that happened between 1957-61 before it was withdrawn? Those pregnant women thought they were doing everything they could to protect their children and so many of them gave birth to children with deformities. Obviously the medical system has advanced dramatically since 1961, however, looking back at the swine flu of ‘76 and the rush to vaccinate the world then, more people died of the vaccine than those who died of the flu itself. History (sadly) repeats itself, and this H1N1 Vaccine was so rushed that sufficient testing wasn’t done. There are many studies that show vaccines cause irreversible damage. Research the connections of vaccines with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Dystonia, Spinal cord and brain inflammation etc. It’s extremely terrifying what has happened to amazingly wonderful people who were only doing what they felt they needed to, to protect their family & children. Please, just be thankful nothing happened to you or your unborn child, and pray that when that baby is born, he or she is not going to experience any lifelong effects of your choice.
I agree with you, it is very much a personal choice. But in the future do not post comments suggesting the vaccine was NOT to blame for the tragic loss of these women when you cannot possibly know that as fact. You were simply one of the lucky ones.
November 5, 2009 at 7:12 pm
(17) Beth says:

Too many women having miscarriages and still births after vaccines to say it is coincidence. The vaccine makers admit it was not tested on pregnant women. Then why they hell are they saying it’s safe? Vaccine companies are immune from legal liability, cannot be sued, because they and the government know their products are UNSAFE. PREGNANT SHOULD NOT BE GETTING VACCINATED BASED ON THE ENORMOUS READING I HAVE DONE THE PAST MONTH. It’s tragic these women are losing babies, just tragic. NO ONE SHOULD GET THIS UNTESTED VACCINE. NO ONE.
NO ONE IS HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES.
November 5, 2009 at 7:15 pm
(18) ladylove says:

I’m sorry, I need to correct one of my statements made above. The “thalidomide tragedy” was not a vaccine, but rather a drug prescribed to help pregnant women with their morning sickness. I apologize for stating it incorrectly, but I hope this clears up what I was saying. Those women trusted their doctor when they were told it was safe and had no idea what they were putting into their body would harm their baby but so many gave birth to babies with deformities.
November 5, 2009 at 7:17 pm
(19) Kasha says:

It is to be expected that some babies will survive the poisonous vaccine. But until they are all born it is hard to rule out whether they have been harmed. Vaccines have been hugely implicated in the skyrocketing cases of autism. Sometimes this is not known until the child is a few years old.
November 5, 2009 at 7:43 pm
(20) babylove says:

I’m sorry for your losses. We all want to identify patterns and connections when something goes wrong. It’s just in our DNA. I think all written here may or may not be right on — we don’t know enough about vaccines AND it’s a big jump to say that the vaccine caused a miscarriage. Reminder – miscarriages can happen whenever – regardless of past history, etc. Be gentle on yourselves and each other. Every mom is just trying to do what’s best for herself and her kiddos.

(22) undecided says:

I am so sorry for all of your losses! I too have had miscarriages. Right now, I am pregnant and in my first trimester. I am undecided as to whether or not to get this vaccine. I am wondering if any of you know if the vaccine you got contained thimerosal? I was thinking of getting the thimerosal free version but after everything that has been happening, I’m not sure I even want that one!
November 5, 2009 at 9:21 pm
(23) Beth says:

I’ve heard that the thirmasol free vaccine is hard to find and if the doctor says it’s thirmasol free, INSIST on reading the insert label! Many vaccine insert labels clearly read “not safe from pregnant women,” or “untested on pregnant women.” The media is scaring folks into getting this untested vaccine. I would absolutely NOT get it after all the above miscarriages. How very tragic that doctors are not intelligent enough to see the connection.
November 5, 2009 at 9:35 pm

Reading about women in Philipines who had miscarriages after tentanus vaccine. They also become sterile. Surf the internet for this info. Vaccines have been known to cause miscarriages in the past.

(25) Natasha says:

To anyne who is reading this, please, when you go away to research the vaccine for yourself, DO NOT ONLY ASK THE MEDICAL profession. Please try to remember that this would be the equivalent of asking a burglar where the loot is at!

Medical professionals are paid huge bonuses by the pharmaceutical industry from the moment they enter university/med school.

If we were all well and healthy all the time (as my five person family are) how would they earn a living?

That may sound like a ridiculous question, but really, cui bono?
November 5, 2009 at 11:13 pm
(26) Beth says:

For those of you who say you are “fine” after vaccine, that remains to be known until you birth your baby and see if it is autistic. There are 6 or 7 types of flu vaccines out there with varying levels of toxicity, with most inserts saying not safe for pregnant women.
November 5, 2009 at 11:33 pm
(27) Tinkerbell says:

I agree with JMSTORK. What about all the pregnant women who are fine after receiving the flu shot? And to BETH, there are still no hard facts that show autism is caused by vaccines. What you believe is your opinion but it’s not fact.
November 5, 2009 at 11:44 pm
(28) jmstork says:

THANK YOU Tinkerbell! I am in no way being unsympathetic to those who have lost a child, but you can’t state for a fact that it was the vaccine that caused the miscarriages…and I’m not stating for a fact that it wasn’t. I just know that there are plenty of women out there who have gotten the vaccine and are fine.
November 6, 2009 at 12:01 am
(29) Questioning says:

Just because some women don’t experience a miscarriage doesn’t mean it can’t cause a miscarriage for others. The timing of these losses for all these women is too great to dismiss. It is very possible that the vaccine can be a danger to some or many but not all pregnancies. I am 23 weeks pregnant and am not getting vaccinated. I never get vaccinated and never get the flu, i eat well and take vitamins and probiotics. I would rather trust my body and my immune system than to ruin my immune system and my baby’s.

I work directly with autistic adults and have asked their family doctors as well as my own about this information. They were lost for words. They didn’t have any argument to contradict the research either. If you are willing, check it out. However, I know a few women who are too scared to read up on what could possibly happen and they ignore it.
I have asked so many questions regarding this flu vaccine, including “why are they giving it to pregnant women without proper testing?” But my BIGGEST questions is, “Why on earth would the drug companies be given legal immunity if they are SO sure it’s safe?” Again, I really wish for all the mothers easy births and happy, healthy, wonderful new babies!! But if at the time of birth you find there could be problems (neurological being the more predominant) there won’t be anyone to hold responsible for the damage… You can’t turn around and say, “But, the doctor told me it was safe!” The drug companies, government, doctors, nurses etc have LEAGAL IMMUNITY. This is frightening.

There are way too many miscarriages happening just days after vaccine. Think of how many more there must be that haven’t spoken up. Surf the net. Do your own research before trusting this multi-billion dollar industry that takes no legal responsibility for the many injured. These poor women with miscarriages have no legal recourse.

My sympathy goes to all the mothers who lost their babies after getting the H1N1 vaccine. Clearly the vaccine is not for everyone!!! it may work for some people but not for others. i just hope those doctors start to realize this and stop their madness by pushing all pregnant women to getting the vaccine assuring them it is safe when it is not. my wife’s obgyn has recommended the vaccine but when i asked her if it was 100% safe that she could not answer!! The health officials who are in conspiracy with the makers of this vaccine without doubt who made huge profits out of this madness have successfully created fear among people and make us think that without vaccine we will die if we get infected. I think the H1N1 vaccine is even deadlier than the flu itself!! During this challenging and confusing time, we should not forget that there is GOD who is most powerful to protect us from harm. we don’t need vaccines as we have a natural mechanism in our body our immune system to fight any flu viruses. Since we came to Canada in 2001, we didn’t have any flu shots! thankfully we haven’t got flu. We just took care of ourselves, stay calm as fear can weaken our immune system, get enough rest, take vitC, zinc, vitD3, beta glucan supplements, always have hand sanitizers in your pocket, always drink warm water during winter, drink fresh ginger tea with a teaspoon of honey syrup. My wife is now 30 weeks pregnant and will not be taking this vaccine as our gut feel tells us it is NOT SAFE even if doctors are recommending it!!!

How can a doctor say h1n1 vaccine is safe for pregnant women when the vaccine companies admit they never tested it on pregnant women? How can any doctor continue to say it’s safe after so many miscarriages after vaccine?

Beth, in any other situation I would absolutely agree with you and say CALL ALAN PHILLIPS!!! But this is what disturbs me the most about the H1N1 Vaccine- The creators (and doctors, nurses, anyone who administers the vaccine) have LEGAL IMMUNITY! There will be no reparations for any loss or damage to fetus, infant, child, teen, woman or man because there is a LAW stating that no one will be held accountable.
Legal Immunity.
How terrifying is that?

I’m from a town of 2000 in SD, there are several women pregnant and we are all due within a few weeks of each other. Four of us got the H1N1 vaccine 2 weeks ago and one by one each of us started to have preterm contractions. We are all due in Nov and Dec so we are further along than most of the people that lost their babies. There is no way you can tell us that our preterm labor was not caused by the H1N1 vaccine. It may look like a “fluke” to some people when these women are scattered all over the country but we are talking about 4 of us in our small community. My heart goes out to all of you that lost your babies.
November 6, 2009 at 11:50 am

Yes, vaccine companies are immune from lawsuit and irresponsible, because they know their products injure and legislation was past to protect this billion dollar industry. However, I read of a fund available some place for those who are injured from vaccines. Many have been injured recently, worldwide, and not making it to the news. It’s worth talking to a vaccine attorney and DEFINITELY the media needs to be made aware. Ladies call your news stations so other women can be warned, and get a new doctor if he is not smart enough to see the connection.

Stay away from this stuff!!! The H1N1 vaccine is new, and done in a hurry, it makes NO sence to rush out and get it, there is NO WAY the government knows enough about this shot to be able to predict anything about the long term effects of it. Besides, when it merges with another one of the flus it’ll be resistant to the vaccine. This is only the begining, let your body naturally make it’s own defences, and be aware and smart enough to know when to get help!!

Thank you for sharing, ladies. When I heard the vaccine had two ingedients that are being tested in Germany as day-after abortifacents, I wondered what the outcome would be.

The sad thing is that without limited understanding of spontaneous abortion and prenatal health, this issue will probably never be fully researched.

I hope you ladies find the answers to your questions.

That is terrible! Women need to know that even though there was legislation passed so the manufacturers can’t be sued for damages, there is still federal money out there for medical care expenses related to a vaccine injury (not that any amount of money would make up for losing a baby…) according to the CDC’s handout the phone number is 1-888-0275-4772 or http://www.hrsa.gov/countermeasurescomp/default.htm

They also need to be sure and file a report with VAERS The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) so these can be counted an tracked! You can do it yourself, you don’t need a doctor to do it for you. http:.//www.vaers.hhs.gov

(51) NB says:

I’m sorry for the losses that some women have experienced, but you can’t seriously consider the few people that bother to respond to a message board as representing the entire population of pregnant women.

As a nurse, I can tell you that many pregnant women have gotten the H1N1 vaccine and had no problems. Miscarriages do happen, preterm labor happens for no reasons. It is very common that a pregnant woman can be progressing fine with her pregnancy one day, then lose the baby or deliver a preterm baby the next. It happens everyday to thousands of women across the country, vaccine or no vaccine.

No one is mentioning the very real threat that the H1N1 virus is to pregnant women. If you develop respiratory distress and have to be on a ventilator & constantly sedated with multiple drugs, how do you think that affects your baby? How many babies do you think are suffering hypoxic episodes in utero from lack of oxygen because of the mother’s respiratory distress from H1N1? This can lead to permanent, irreversible brain damage in the baby. There are also many babies that are being born prematurely or miscarried from the mom having H1N1. Whether people are realizing it or not, there are also pregnant women that are having to be delivered by c-section because of the severity of their illness and that die before they ever see or hold their baby.

Choosing to do the H1N1 vax if you’re pregnant is a personal decision, but you need to make sure you understand the very real risks on both sides. Unless you live in a bubble and no one in your house works, goes to the grocery store, bank, post office, church, school, visits family, etc., you can’t avoid the risk of contracting H1N1. To think otherwise is just not very smart thinking.

I’m not a vaccine expert, so I don’t know what the risks are to pregnant women from the vaccines. But I’ve seen what happens to pregnant women from H1N1.
November 6, 2009 at 4:56 pm
(52) Anastasia says:

I never claimed that the women posting to this message board represented the entire population of pregnant women who chose to get vaccinated. That would’ve been ludicrous. I also have never claimed that the vaccine is or isn’t the cause of the numerous miscarriages reported on this same message board.

What I said was that to disregard the OBVIOUS coincidence and call it a mere “fluke” was irresponsible and I haven’t read anything posted here yet to discredit that statement.

The women who have had the vaccine and then just hours later had miscarriages have every right to question if the vaccine was responsible; and the fact that their doctors and a lot of people with less education want to automatically dismiss that possibility out of turn is unfair to these women who have just suffered what is arguably one of the most difficult losses faced by a mother.

For the record, I don’t “live in a bubble”, I go to church every Wednesday and Sunday, I go to the bank every single week, I go to the grocery store to buy whole, living foods at least three times a week and my daughter and I have not yet had the flu. My husband even had the flu and my daughter and I still avoided getting it. Why?! Because we have healthy immune systems. Why?! Because we eat right, exercise and take care of our bodies and would never, no matter what a “doctor” told us to do, put the chemicals in vaccines in our bodies.

And why do I avoid vaccines? Because “Big Pharma” has spent more money trying to sell us that crap than to actually test it and perfect it. I’m not buying their bull.
November 6, 2009 at 5:38 pm
(53) Leslie says:

Even if these pregnant women who took this vaccine are still okay, it does NOT mean their babies will be birthed without defects. The chemicals from a vaccine will remain in one’s body forever, potentially causing all sorts of damage down the road.

The vaccine is more dangerous than the flu. Many doctors have admitted this.
November 6, 2009 at 6:06 pm

I recall reading vaccine companies state they never tested vaccine on pregnant women, so how can anyone know it’s safe? It’s quite scarey.

Are you seriously saying that the only people that catch H1N1 are people that don’t eat right, don’t exercise, don’t have healthy immune systems and don’t take care of their bodies? For real? If that’s what you’re saying, you just proved what I said about not following a smart way of thinking. If you actually read about the H1N1, the majority of deaths are in HEALTHY people that should not be at risk from it. I would also say that probably most pregnant women take care of themselves even more than your average person. If your line of thinking is correct, please explain why pregnant women are MORE at risk and have a higher morbidity from H1N1? Why do pregnant women have a much higher fatality rate from it than the general population?

I have a stepchild that doesn’t exercise, doesn’t eat right (except when with us), goes places constantly to which she might be exposed and is fully vaxed except for H1N1 because it’s not available here yet. She hasn’t caught it either. And you even said yourself that your husband had the flu (which most likely was swine flu since that’s the most common flu virus circulating now). I assume he eats the same kind of healthy foods and lives the same kind of healthy lifestyle you & your daughter do and it didn’t work for him. So I guess that disproves your theory about why you & your daughter haven’t caught it. Healthy living and nutritious food certainly play a role in preventing disease or severity of disease, but it does NOT guarantee disease prevention.

Please ladies if you have suffered a miscarriage, side effects due to the H1N1 vaccinations please contact your local newstation, and report and also go to the VAERS- http:vaers.hhs.gov Which is the Vaccine Adverse Event Report System, or call at 1-800-822-7967 and report so this is kept on file.

I’ve read and noticed that those who follow the raw vegan lifestyle rarely get ill. And folks seem to get healed of illnesses by following that vegetable based diet. It’s quite amazing.

To read more about it, surf the net for Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona, founded by Dr. Gabriel Cousins, an MD.

Those who eat really healthy may get ill, but seem to recover more quickly. I had the flu for 3 days, then was fine. My neighbor got the flu and he was well in 3 days.
I think diet can play a role in how fast I recover.

Pumping the body full of chemicals and vaccines with mercury is not healthy. I would rather catch the flu and ride it out, than risk the dire consequences of chemicals in vaccines.

How very sad for the many miscarriages immediately after vaccination.

Swine flu is not the most common flu going around, based on a CBS investigative report that exposed media for hyping up swine flu numbers. Their report revealed up to 3 percent of flu’s were actually swine flu.

so if you miscarry following having the flu, it’s because of the flu, but if you miscarry following having the shot, it can’t be the shot?? Some pregnant women will get the flu and be ok, others won’t. Some pregnant women will get the shot and be ok (so far) and others won’t. But to dismiss these “coincidences” just because the pharmaceutical companies say the vaccine is safe (following 0 research) if absolutely ridiculous and irresponsible.

Ok, so your saying that there a pregnant women dying of H1N1 and are needing to deliver their babies by C-section and never seeing their child. Do you have a link to this? Because I’m fairly certain that would make the news.

Also as for the vegan diet, a friend of mine is vegan, and the ONLY time he gets sick is when he’s sent off on course and has to eat out of mess halls (military). He is unable to fix his own meals, and make sure that it truly a vegan diet.

To those of you who have miscarried, my heart goes out to you. I’ve been there, it sucks, for those of you how have had still births, My heart also goes out to you!!

I don’t trust the vaccine….

We aren’t hearing about mortality/injury/adverse effects because the government certainly isn’t going to let the public know while still trying to vaccinate as many people as possible. It’s awfully suspect that we’re feeling the pain of the money spent to pull us out of the recession and yet the government stands to profit billions from this vaccine.

I got a flu shot in pregnancy, developed incredibly strange symptoms immediately (numb hands, feet and mouth, heart palpitations, sudden weakness in my legs, a bright red face), began bleeding and miscarried by 11 weeks. I had no idea there was mercury in most flu shots but once I found out after the fact, I was assured that I’d had the “mercury free” form. As it turned out, the shot wasn’t completely mercury free and, according to the EPA website, it still had 5,000 times the limit for mercury in drinking water– not to mention a list of other toxins (MSG, formaldehyde, etc.).
I’d had no idea the shots were so dirty. I guess I’d been under the impression they were something like sterile water and a dead virus, that’s it.
The strange symptoms– which I’d been told were “just pregnancy” lasted six months. No one could figure out what was wrong with me, why I couldn’t make stairs, why I felt like I’d been shot with novocaine. I learned later from a book by Jane Hightower that these were all symptoms of mercury exposure. I guess I’m one of those susceptible people. No one in my family is getting the H1N1– no one even gets regular flu shots anymore, we all read labels.

To NB, since you seem to want to make this personal, my husband works long hard hours that wear down his body and, no, he doesn’t eat the same diet that my daughter and I do. He likes a lot of processed foods and takes packaged items in the lunch he packs for himself for work. His choice, he’s a grown man.

You’re the one that started that whole “unless you live in a bubble you’re going to get sick” nonsense so don’t point your finger at me. I didn’t claim that only people who don’t take care of themselves get sick. That is not what I said. So, please, don’t put words in my mouth.

The fact is that my daughter and I get regular chiropractic care, which keeps our nervous system functioning at it’s best and, yes, we eat healthy and take care of our bodies but I’m not saying we never get sick.

I’m saying that with diet, exercise and good “preventative” care my daughter and I can avoid getting sick and on the rare occasion when we do get sick we recover much faster.

Unproven and untested vaccines are crap. They are dangerous and risky; and when something goes wrong no one wants to address the possibility that they’re the problem… which I noticed in your ranting response is the one statement you never addressed… and the point I’ve been trying to make.

Once again, my point is this: all the “doctors” who get challenged by their patients who coincidentally miscarry shortly after getting the vaccine want to immediately discredit the possibility that the vaccine is responsible and that’s wrong. It’s irresponsible to disregard what appears to be quite a lot of “coincidences”. Definitely too many to be called a “fluke”, which, from the beginning, was the point I was trying to make.

But you’re a nurse, I don’t blame you for thinking the way you do. “Big Pharma” wins because they have more money to develop chemicals for us to take than holistic health care supporters and providers have money for research. Nothing will change until the mindset of treating symptoms becomes replaced with a wellness lifestyle.

October - November 2009 swine flu swindle news by Vaccination Information Network (VINE)

The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (BundesAmt fuer Gesundheit - BAG) is faced with a fiasco

HARDLY ANY PIG IS GETTING VACCINATED!
The Swiss people and politicians have gone on strike: Hardly anyone wants to get the swine flu shot! The BAG is heading for a disaster. This is mainly the BAG’s own fault.

By Lorenz Honegger and Beat Kraushaar | Updated at 11:16 | 01.11.2009

http://www.blick.ch/news/schweiz/kein-schwein-laesst-sich-impfen-13...

How the parliamentarians responded.

The head of the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), Thomas Zeltner (61), is likely to swallow hard on reading these figures: 86.4 percent of the Swiss population ignore his advice. They do not want to be vaccinated against the swine flu!

This was the clear result of a representative survey by SonntagsBlick and "il caffè." No less reluctant are the politicians: In a large SonntagsBlick survey 71.6 percent of 116 national and council representatives indicated they would face the threatening H1N1 pandemic without vaccine protection.

Does BAG only have itself to blame for this fiasco - because it pressed on the panic button too early and too vigorously?

To Daniel Koch, the BAG-director for communicable diseases, this poor response is “hardly surprising.” The people could not imagine what a pandemic would feel like. Not yet. The BAG had not invented it. "The flu will come as surely as the ‘Amen’ in the church,” says Koch.

He dismisses criticism of the multi-million dollar information campaign by his office. "It is not an easy task to strike the right balance between playing down and panic-mongering."

It is a rationalization the SP national councillor Simonetta Sommaruga (49) does not accept. "The first information about an impending swine flu epidemic was drastic and undifferentiated,” criticized the consumer protector. "The BAG wanted to give the impression that it has everything under control." It would have been better if the BAG had spoken openly about the uncertainties. Nearly 60 percent of Swiss believe the authorities issued exaggerated warnings that fueled a panic.

At present, everything still appears to be chaotic, unclear and vague: Only on Friday, the Medicines Agency ‘Swissmedic’ released two H1N1 vaccines. Both contain an immune response enhancer (adjuvant), the safety of which is being questioned particularly in Germany. No adjuvant-free vaccine is approved in Switzerland.

Moreover, the mass vaccination comes late, perhaps too late: The first Swiss vaccination will be given in mid-November - weeks or even months after countries like Germany, France, China and Australia launched their vaccination campaigns. Primarily vaccinated are risk groups: pregnant women, the chronically ill, health-care professionals - only in December will it be the rest of the population’s turn. Lost time, during which many thousands of Swiss will become additionally infected with the virus.

With a total of 13 million doses, the BAG has ordered far too much vaccine (Switzerland has a population of almost 8 million - Erwin). Switzerland was in a “privileged position,” concluded BAG-chief Thomas Zeltner solemnly. Fact: Currently, only a fraction of the ordered vaccines is available, 240,000 doses of Novartis' “Focetria” vaccine and 600,000 doses of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) "Pandemrix” vaccine. "We don’t have enough vaccine until mid-November," admits Daniel Koch. GSK had however promised to make weekly deliveries. "It is very important that the
the risk groups are vaccinated" said Koch. How this is supposed to be done is a mystery: in Switzerland, the risk groups alone comprise two million people.

Translated from the German original by Erwin Alber
Nothing was mentioned in all these posts about adverse reactions from vaccines done on pregnant women and the outcome is a baby born with learning disabilities-
I see this all the time!
The regular flushot- many pregnant women think it's OK/think it's SAFE,everyone gets them- Then they find out later that their child is born brain damaged.
How does a homeopath know that its directly connected to vaccines?
You ask "was your baby vaccinated?"
"Were you vaccinated while pregnant?"

The answer may surprize most practicioners-
NO VACCINE IS A SAFE VACCINE!
Vaccines are so toxic they cross the blood brain barrier making it's toxic imprints in the DNA/causing miasmatic jumps within the vital force of the next generation.
Was an Eight-Year-Old's Death Caused by His Flu Shot?

Posted by: Dr. Mercola
November 12 2009

flu
The New York state Department of Health is investigating the unexpected death of an 8-year-old boy on October 11. Reports published since the incident have implied a possible connection between the death and a flu shot the boy received the week before his death.

Stony Brook Hospital would not comment on the case, citing privacy requirements, but did confirm the investigation.

The DOH reported that Stony Brook Hospital has cooperated completely with the investigation, forwarding reports, medical records and fluid samples to Albany.

Times Beacon Record October 21, 2009


Dr. Mercola's Comments:

This is not the first time a young child has mysteriously died after receiving a flu vaccination. Last year a 6-year-old girl from Colorado received the FluMist vaccine and about a week later “became weak with multiple episodes of falling to the ground.”

The girl grew increasingly weak and feverish, was hospitalized and underwent surgery, but eventually died.

This year, flu deaths are being trumpeted across the world, and yet people are also dying and suffering life-altering disabilities shortly after receiving the flu vaccine, whether it be the seasonal- or the H1N1 vaccine.

For example, here are two more recent stories that receive nowhere near the same amount of attention as the flu deaths. In fact, most if not all, are being portrayed as unfortunate coincidences that have nothing to do with the fact they just received a flu shot, and no further investigations are made:

* Five people recently died after getting flu shots in Korea

* A 25-year-old woman suffered irreversible disability after receiving the flu shot

The medical industry ACCEPTS these occasional deaths and disability as collateral damage during mass vaccinations and other drug interventions, or attempts to rule them as “coincidences.”

So what is important to yourself before getting a flu shot or H1N1 vaccine for yourself or your child is: do the benefits outweigh the risks?

And in the case of either flu shot, seasonal or H1N1, I think if you are objective and seriously evaluate all the evidence you’ll find they do not.

Flu Vaccines Have a Dismal Success Rate

If you get a flu shot, you can still get the flu (or flu-like symptoms). This is because it only protects against certain strains, and it’s anyone’s guess which flu viruses will be in your area.

In January or February of each year, health authorities travel to Asia to determine which strains of the flu are currently active. Based on their findings in Asia, they assume that the same strains of viruses will spread to the U.S. by fall.

At this point, U.S. vaccine manufacturers start making that season’s flu vaccine, which will contain the strains found in Asia. However, if the viral strains circulating in the U.S. that season are not identical to those in Asia, the vaccine you receive is a complete dud.

Even the CDC states:

“In some years when vaccine and circulating strains were not well-matched, no vaccine effectiveness can be demonstrated in some studies, even in healthy adults. It is not possible in advance of the influenza season to predict how well the vaccine and circulating strains will be matched, and how that match may affect the degree of vaccine effectiveness.”

Meanwhile, numerous studies are coming to the same conclusion: Flu vaccines DO NOT WORK.

The truth is that:

* Giving young children flu shots appeared to have no impact on flu-related doctor visits or hospitalizations during two recent flu seasons, according to a study published in the October 2008 issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine.
* The flu vaccine is no more effective for children than a placebo, according to a large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.
* No studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly.
* A study published in the Lancet found that influenza vaccination was NOT associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia in older people. This is important because 35,000 of the 36,000 “flu” deaths the government claims happen each year are actually caused by diseases like pneumonia, and NOT the flu.
* 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.

Flu Vaccines Can Have Serious Side Effects

Along with their dismal success rate, flu vaccines do not come without risk. The most common reactions actually resemble the flu-like symptoms the shot is aiming to prevent, including fever, fatigue, painful joints and headache that can last several days.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which occurs most often within two to four weeks of vaccination, has also been associated with the flu vaccine. GBS is a nerve disorder characterized by muscle weakness, unsteady gait, numbness, tingling, pain and sometimes paralysis of one or more limbs or your face. It can also cause death.

Other side effects such as brain and nerve disorders including encephalopathy, optic neuritis, partial facial paralysis, and brachial plexus neuropathy have also been reported (although a “causal” link has not been determined).

Most seasonal flu vaccines also contain dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a deadly preservative that is 50 times more toxic than regular mercury. Most of the swine flu vaccines will also contain thimerosal, although they will reportedly make a limited number of doses available that are thimerosal-free.

If taken in high enough doses, thimerosal can result in long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions.

Disorders associated with mercury poisoning include:

* Autism
* Attention deficit disorder
* Multiple sclerosis
* Speech and language deficiencies

It can also predispose adults to neurological problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

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, and this year you and your children may be exposed to as many as FOUR flu shots in quick succession.

Flu Deaths and Cases are Way Over-Hyped

Why would you take a flu shot -- EVERY YEAR -- that has NEVER been proven to be effective, that can give you the very illness you’re trying to prevent, and has potential long-term side effects that are far worse than the flu itself?

There has been massive misinformation around this topic, which has done an excellent job of instilling fear into the population to convince you to get a shot to stay healthy.

And one of the prime ways they have done this is by drastically overestimating the cases of both flu and swine flu.

CBS News recently went to all 50 states directly, asking for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 prior to the CDC’s halt of individual testing and counting in July.

What did they find? CBS reported:

"The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico."

So not only are most cases of suspected flu-like illnesses not H1N1, they're not even the flu but more likely some type of cold or upper respiratory infection!

Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, was a consumer representative on the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee in 2003, and she asked the head of the influenza branch of the CDC how much of the flu-like illness that occurs in America every year is actually due to the flu.

The answer was about 20 percent, which corresponds more closely with the CBS News data from 2009.

According to the CBS News study, when you come down with chills, fever, cough, runny nose, malaise and all those other "flu-like" symptoms, the illness is likely caused by influenza at most 17 percent of the time and as little as 3 percent! The other 83 to 97 percent of the time it's caused by other viruses or bacteria.

So remember that not every illness that appears to be the flu actually is the flu. In fact, most of the time it's not.

Vaccine Makers are Immune to Lawsuits

Most people don’t realize that over two decades ago the powerful drug lobby carefully manipulated the U.S. Congress to make it impossible for any U.S. citizen to sue vaccine manufacturers. The only option they have is to use National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which is notoriously difficult -- nearly impossible -- to collect on because they rigged the system.

However, this year with the new H1N1 vaccine it is even less likely that you’d be able to sue a vaccine maker.

You see, with the passing of the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (the PREP Act), the DHHS Secretary can invoke almost complete immunity from liability for manufacturers of vaccines and drugs used to combat a declared public health emergency, such as the swine flu.

So ANY product used to fight "an epidemic" is protected under this law, and the government decides what drugs fit the bill.

It is a blatant demonstration of just how powerful the corporate drug interests have become. Indeed, with the largest political lobby in Congress, their influence is so great they have been able to manipulate numerous laws that now insulate them from any responsibility in harming or killing people in their relentless drive to earn profits, without regard to human health or well-being.

There is a Better Way to Prevent the Flu

What is often NOT explained to parents and others considering a flu vaccine is that there are methods far superior to vaccinations to prevent the flu.

Following these simple guidelines will keep your immune system in optimal working order so that you're far less likely to acquire the infection to begin with … and without any risks.

* Optimize your vitamin D levels. This is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu -- not the flu virus itself.

This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take. I would STRONGLY urge you to have your vitamin D level monitored to confirm your levels are therapeutic at 50-70 ng/ml and done by a reliable vitamin D lab like Lab Corp.

For those of you in the U.S., we hope to launch a vitamin D testing service through Lab Corp that allows you to have your vitamin D levels checked at your local blood drawing facility, and relatively inexpensively. We hope to offer this service later this year, but in the meantime you can get your vitamin D levels checked inexpensively by going to this Grassroots Health D*action.

If you are coming down with flu-like symptoms and have not been on vitamin D you can take doses of 50,000 units a day for three days to treat the acute infection. Some researchers like Dr. Cannell, believe the dose could even be as high as 1,000 units per pound of body weight for three days.

However, most of Dr. Cannell's work was with seasonal and not pandemic flu. If your body has never been exposed to the antigens there is chance that the vitamin D might not work. However the best bet is to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D around 60 ng/ml.

* Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.

* Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for you to fight the flu. Be sure to check out my article Guide to a Good Night's Sleep for some great tips to help you get quality rest.

* Have Effective Tools to Address Stress. We all face some stress every day, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.

If you feel that stress is taking a toll on your health, consider using an energy psychology tool such as Meridian Tapping Techniques (MTT), which is remarkably effective in relieving stress associated with all kinds of events, from work to family to trauma.

* Exercise. When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads. You can review my exercise guidelines for some great tips on how to get started.

* Take a Good Source of Animal-Based Omega-3 Fats. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils that are trans fats and in processed foods as it will seriously damage your immune response.

* Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.

* Use Natural Antibiotics. Examples include oil of oregano and garlic. These work like broad-spectrum antibiotics against bacteria, viruses, and protozoa in your body. And unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, they do not appear to lead to resistance.

* Avoid Hospitals and Vaccines. Hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to a new bug. So unless you absolutely have to go to the hospital for a medical emergency, avoid it.

And, keep in mind that virtually all vaccinations will LOWER the effectiveness of your immune system (this is the main job of the vaccine adjuvants), NOT make it stronger!

Finally, if you or your child has received a seasonal or swine flu shot, I strongly recommend you review Dr. Blaylock’s recommendations, which may alleviate some of the associated health risks.
Swine Flu Alert -- Shocking Vaccine Miscarriage Horror Stories

Posted by: Dr. Mercola
November 28 2009

pregnancy, vaccines, flu, flue, influenza, H1N1, hihi, HIHI, miscarriageU.S. health authorities have made pregnant women one of the highest priority groups for getting the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, but is it actually safe for pregnant women and their babies?

In fact, the package inserts for the swine flu vaccines actually say that the safety of these vaccines for pregnant women has not been established. And miscarriage reports from pregnant women who have taken the H1N1 swine flu vaccine are starting to pour in from all over the nation.

The link below contains stories that will shock and anger you. If you are a pregnant mother, please do not take the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. Instead, do everything that you can do to avoid public places and make sure to wash your hands more than you usually would. Research the many great natural ways there are for fighting the flu.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

As a pro-safety drug- and vaccine advocate, I believe it’s imperative to be able to unequivocally prove that a drug or vaccine will cause no harm, AND be able to show that it offers measurable benefit, before releasing it to market. This is especially important when we’re dealing with pregnant women and young children.

Neither is true for the flu vaccine during pregnancy, and even less so for the H1N1 vaccine when given to pregnant women.

Flu vaccine manufacturers clearly indicate that safety and effectiveness of their flu vaccines have not been established for pregnant women and nursing mothers. Ditto for their H1N1 vaccines.

Heartbreaking Stories of Losses After H1N1 Vaccination


The source links above contain personal stories of heartbreak – women who lost their babies just hours or days after getting the H1N1 vaccine this year. Naturally, the standard comeback is that miscarriages are commonplace, and surely have nothing to do with the vaccine. However, to simply dismiss these events as “coincidences” is a serious mistake.

Perhaps some of the 20 women on one of the blogs would have miscarried anyway, but when a number of women have healthy, uneventful pregnancies up until they’re injected with a vaccine, and then suddenly miscarry, it most certainly warrants investigation!

Be Part of the Solution – REPORT All Side Effects to VAERS!


I’m willing to bet that most of these incidents have not been properly reported to the authorities, and this is something everyone needs to be better informed about.

Please know that any time you take a pharmaceutical drug, or are injected with a vaccine of any kind, you need to report any and all side effects to your doctor and insist that he or she report it to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Ask to get a copy of the report to make sure it was done.

Also know that YOU can report it yourself! You don’t have to go via your doctor.

The VAERS web site allows you to fill out an adverse event report on your own.

Unfortunately, since reporting side effects to VAERS is voluntary, only one to 10 percent of all side effects are ever reported!

Yet VAERS can serve a vital function, alerting authorities to significant problems with various drugs and vaccines. We NEED this information, because without it, authorities and drug makers can simply continue to say that a drug or vaccine has been used safely for a number of years, without ever having done any real studies and follow up.

The truth is, we know extremely little about the true safety and effectiveness of most drugs and vaccines on the market.

None of the H1N1 Flu Vaccines Have Ever Been Tested on Pregnant Women


If you are willing to be a guinea pig, then so be it. But I urge you not to be. It’s simply not your responsibility to subject yourself to this type of cruel field testing. Know this: the vaccine manufacturers and the doctors administering the shots are legally protected, should something go wrong. You cannot sue them for damages.

If you read the package inserts, you’ll find that NONE of them have ever been tested for safety and effectiveness in pregnant women and nursing mothers, and none of them are recommended for pregnant women “unless clearly needed.”

(And this is something I’ll get to in a moment…)

You also need to understand that no reproduction studies have been done to determine how these flu vaccines (whether for seasonal- or the H1N1 vaccine) affect future fertility, and whether or how they affect a developing fetus.

So truly, YOU are little more than a test subject; a statistic that may or may not be counted, depending on whether your side effects are properly reported and investigated, should something go awry.

In the US, four H1N1 vaccines have achieved FDA approval, and you can read their package inserts by clicking on the hyperlinks below:

* MedImmune (intranasal spray)
* Novartis
* Sanofi-Pasteur
* CSL Biotherapies, Inc.

For more information about these vaccines, and a quick review of each vaccine’s list of ingredients, please see my previous article A Review of Four Approved Swine Flu Vaccines’ Ingredients.

How Effective is the H1N1 Vaccine, Really?


If you read through the package inserts (hyperlinked above) for the injectable, inactivated flu vaccines, you will find the following paragraph:

"Specific levels of HI antibody titers post-vaccination with inactivated influenza virus vaccine have not been correlated with protection from influenza virus. In some human studies, antibody titers of 1:40 or greater have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects."

What that paragraph explains, is that, to the best of our knowledge, the vaccine only works in half, or less, of those individuals who attain the specified level of seroconversion after vaccination.

The FDA defines seroconversion as achieving an antibody titer of 1:40.

This means that if a vaccine was 100 percent effective at achieving this level of seroconversion, it would protect up to 50 percent of the recipients of the vaccine.

But none of the vaccines are 100 percent effective at achieving seroconversion.

CSL's vaccine insert, for example, (see pages 11-12), states that their H1N1 vaccine provides seroconversion for:

* 48.7 percent of people aged 18-65
* 34 percent for seniors, 65 and older

That means that, at best, their vaccine works in one out of every four people! (49 percent of 50 percent).

Which, of course, means that the vaccine does NOT work in three out of every four people…

Is a 25 percent chance of reaping any sort of benefit worth the risk, especially if you’re pregnant?

Many health officials and doctors say this benefit is worth the risk, and urge pregnant women to get vaccinated with one or both flu vaccines this year. They claim the potential dangers inherent in getting sick with the flu while pregnant is a far more significant than any potential danger from the vaccine.

But is that really true?

How Dangerous is the Flu While Pregnant, and is Flu Vaccination Warranted?

A paper published in the summer 2006 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, titled Influenza Vaccination During Pregnancy: A Critical Assessment of the Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), concludes that the flu vaccine recommendation for pregnant women should be withdrawn as:

a) flu is rarely a complication for pregnant women, and

b) no safety studies have been done

The authors’ state:

“Influenza vaccination during all trimesters of pregnancy is now universally recommended in the United States. We critically reviewed the influenza vaccination policy of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice and the citations that were used to support their recommendations.

The ACIP’s citations and the current literature indicate that influenza infection is rarely a threat to a normal pregnancy.

There is no convincing evidence of the effectiveness of influenza vaccination during this critical period.

… The ACIP policy recommendation of routinely administering influenza vaccine during pregnancy is ill-advised and unsupported by current scientific literature, and it should be withdrawn…”

Interestingly, it explains that the ACIP’s recommendations are based on just TWO scientific papers that support the claim that the flu is more serious during pregnancy than at other times, and points out the multiple flaws with each of these two studies.

The Flaws

Here’s an excerpt explaining the lack of true evidence presented by the first study:

“A British study compared maternal and neonatal outcomes in women infected with the influenza virus during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy with those of pregnant, uninfected controls. Only 11% of the 1,659 pregnant subjects had serological evidence of the illness; none had detectable influenza A-specific IgM.

There was also no evidence for transplacental transmission of the influenza virus, or autoantibody production in influenza-complicated pregnancies. Influenza infection had no significant impact on labor outcomes, health of the newborn, or maternal well-being.

The authors claimed that overall “complications” in pregnant women with influenza infection occurred more frequently than in controls; however, no individual complication achieved statistical significance.

Many of the listed complications appeared to be subjective complaints such as chest pain and “taking medication,” rather than specific diagnoses, and some could have been related to comorbid conditions that the authors failed to address.

While there was only one recorded case of pneumonia during pregnancy, an uncommon but serious complication of influenza, all other “complications” lacked biological plausibility.

When such nonspecific complications were excluded, there were no significant differences between the two groups…”

Another interesting fact brought to light in this paper is that, ironically, some of the “evidence” used to create the recommendation for flu vaccination for pregnant women shows that it may cause more harm than good!

“Munoz et al. also failed to demonstrate effectiveness of influenza vaccination in pregnancy during five influenza seasons (1998-2003). Rates of upper respiratory tract infection did not significantly differ between vaccinated and unvaccinated women.

Paradoxically, the authors found four times as many influenza-like illness-related hospitalizations in vaccinated women (2.8% vs 0.7%), an observation similar to that of Neuzil et al (2.2% vs 0.7%) [the second study used to support the ACIP recommendation].

These observations not only challenge vaccine effectiveness, but also raise concern that vaccination actually carries added risk of influenza-like illness.” [Emphasis mine.]

Lastly, the paper questions the rationale for using a polio vaccine study – which was rejected by the Institute of Medicine on the basis of flawed study design – in support of their decision that flu vaccinations are safe for pregnant women.

The authors called the decision “peculiar.”

Indeed…

Final Thoughts

Hopefully, this information will help you weigh the risks and benefits to make a more educated decision for yourself and your family. No one can, nor should, make this decision for you.

I urge you to continue educating yourself about vaccines before yet another generation is lost to medical arrogance and greed.
