I have researched the "flu shot" sham for over a decade and can state with complete confidence and unlimited evidence, NO ONE needs this toxic "vaccination".

 

Flu Shot Protection and Flu Protection Protocol Introduction

    

The whole "flu shot" campaign is one gigantic and deadly scam.

 

"We have found that clinically normal individuals aged 60-65 who receive influenza vaccine three or four times during a five-year period, will five years later have an incidence of Alzheimer's disease 10-fold greater than age-matched individuals who did not receive it."  Doctor H. Hugh Fudenburg, MD, Note and CDC cannot figure out where Alzheimer's is coming from. Right!  90% of our seniors are getting the "flu vaccine" toxin.

 

"That's [a Canadian] 16 total deaths among a pediatric population of 7.86 million, the majority of whom -- 60 percent or more -- remained unvaccinated. By comparison, during the same four-year time span, the identical U.S. pediatric group had 553 flu-associated deaths. Compared on a per capita basis, the U.S. exhibits a stunning 3.2 times death rate over Canada.”   Canada Virtually Eliminates Flu Deaths, Note so all we have to do to improve our flu performance and save a BUNCH of lives and money is STOP with the toxic NEEDLES

 

Note Alzheimer's is but a marker for the legions of health problems caused by the "seasonal flu vaccination". Just ask yourself this one simple question. Why is 25 mcg of the PROVEN extremely neurodegenerative mercury AND the proven abortifactant "H1N1 vaccine" being injected into 200 million US Citizens EACH YEAR, to include pregnant women and six month old babies? Canada shows stopping the insane "flu vaccination" will save TONS of lives and money.

     

If you but take a little time the following will be demonstrated.

  

  • The CDC has CONTINUOUSLY overstated the mortality of seasonal influenza often by over 100 fold. They are NOW saying they have no idea how many die from the seasonal flu. We know it is less than 700/year for MOST years, perhaps MUCH less if based on serological results. Honest figures from the UK imply about 300/year die in the USA from influenza

        

    Deaths Due to Respiratory Causes in the UK, 2009 Cause of Death

    Total Deaths

    % of Total

    Pneumonia

    28,152

    40.8

    Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease (mainly bronchitis)

    25,688

    37.2

    Other

    15,103

    21.9

    Influenza

    31

    0.04

    Total

    68,974

    100

    Source: UK Office of National Statistics

  • The CDC has presented a model of the seasonal flu that it totally at odds with the evidence. The CDC is pretending they do not know what is causing the flu. They KNOW. At all levels the "Seasonal Flu" information given us by HHS is egregiously incorrect.

  • 86% of the time during "flu season" when you come down with "flu symptoms" it is NOT from the influenza A or B virus but by some other 200 or so virus inhabiting your body.

  • The "flu vaccine" only sometimes, in theory, "protects" against influenza A and B viruses. Thus even in theory the "flu vaccine" cannot "protect" you from 86% of flu episodes.

  • Honest examination of "flu vaccine" testing has found the "seasonal flu vaccine" to be completely and  totally WORTHLESS when corrected for testing biases. Honest independent testing shows "benefits" negative or too low to measure with any confidence

  • The "seasonal flu" and more importantly all viral flu is caused primarily by the seasonal low in our vitamin D levels. Thus the "cure" for seasonal flu and all viral flu is sunshine and vitamin D.

  • Almost all forms of the "flu vaccination" contain the extremely neurodegenerative mercury most often 25 mcg. All forms include the exceedingly toxic IMO "H1N1 vaccine"

Hi Louis,

 

I was pleasantly surprised to read this:

http://metronews.ca/health/222947/flu-shot-program-misses-under-2s-study/

 

It turns out Ontario, at least, does have a low child flu vaccination rate. 

 

I don't know if our low vaccination rate is the reason for our low pediatric death rate.  I did try to verify that Canada had a low pediatric death rate but the trail went cold.  Age of Autism said they used flu-watch (government of Canada) site, but I could not locate the numbers.  If anyone does locate the original numbers, I would appreciate the link smile.gif  

 

There are a couple of caveats:

 

1.  There has been some talk that death rates from the flu in the USA have been manipulated.  If this is the case, then we cannot say Canada has lower death rates than the USA from the flu, as how the 2 countries define the flu might differ (is the USA using secondary infection in its statistics while Canada is not?  That sort of thing).

 

2.  Canada has universal health care.  Perhaps Canadians are more likely to seek health care, period, when they are sick?  Canada's infant and child mortality rate are lower than the USA's - it is not surprising the flu mortality rate is lower as well.

 

In any event, do not get me wrong Louis, I think the flu shot for the majority of the population is bollocks.  I simply put forth the above for contemplation..


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Yes Kathy there is ALWAYS doubt. But we must take the information we have in hand and make decisions.

 

All the information I have tells me the risk to reward for the "flu shot" is off the chart. Say like 100,000 to 1 against taking the shot.

 

And being 73 I sure consider Alzheimer's a much bigger threat than a silly cold.

 

"We have found that clinically normal individuals aged 60-65 who receive influenza vaccine three or four times during a five-year period, will five years later have an incidence of Alzheimer's disease 10-fold greater than age-matched individuals who did not receive it."  Doctor H.

Yes this is certainly true. Too bad the CDC lied all those years about 36,000/year dying from the "seasonal flu". Canada's health care system does not seem as corrupted as is our Rockefeller controlled HHS. You guys are LUCKY.

Speaking of children of the "seasonal flu"

 

Young Children

 

"Before the CDC advocated vaccinating children under the age of five, the number of children dying from the flu was very low, and on the decline. Then, in 2003, just after children aged five and under started getting vaccinated, the number of flu deaths skyrocketed.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

 

Pediatric Flu Deaths by Year Made WORSE by Flu Vaccine

  

  • 1999 -- - 29 deaths
  • 2000 -- - 19 deaths
  • 2001 -- - 13 deaths
  • 2002 -- - 12 deaths
  • 2003 -- - 90 deaths (Year of mass vaccinations of children under age 5 years)
  • 2006 ---- 78 deaths
  • 2007 -----88 deaths
  • 2008 –---116 deaths (40.9% vaccinated at age 6 months to 23 months)

 

Note IMO this holds for ALL “vaccination”

 

For the CDC to recommend young children receive a "vaccination" that has not been independently tested nor registered on a non-emergency basis for young children is IMO criminal. Given the recent history of pediatric flu "vaccination" the CDC is already criminal.

 

Looking at these figures can ANYONE deny the CDC is a CRIMINAL organization?

"For many years, we've been told that there's little we can do to prevent Alzheimer's disease"

 

IMO we could END the Alzheimer's epidemic by simply outlawing the "Flu Shot".

 

IMO most say well over 80% of Alzheimer's  is primarily CAUSED by our wonderful "Flu Shot".

There are hundreds if not thousands of things we can do to prevent Alzheimer's. First do no harm.

 

“Alzheimer’s disease is a disease of the nervous system. There is strong evidence that long term exposure to Electromagnetic Fields is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.” BioInitiative Working Group

 

“Vitamin K deficiency may contribute to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease.” Allison

 

“In autopsies of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s damage due to brain infarcts or mini strokes indicated these infarcts or interrupted blood flow in the brain may play a role in Alzheimer’s.” Doctor David Snowden University of Kentucky, Note "vaccination" certainly produces interrupted blood flow to the brain

 

“Vitamin K2 can bring about significant reductions in serum cholesterol, can prevent and possibly ameliorate Alzheimer’s and may be effective in addressing some forms of cancer. And recent studies indicate that vitamin K2 (and especially MK-7) is more bioavailable and effective than vitamin K1.” Howard & Payne

 

“Several human diseases are inflammatory in nature, including asthma, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, tendonitis, bursitis, laryngitis, gingivitis, gastritis, otitis, celiac disease (gluten intolerance), diverticulitis (infection of the diverticula in the colon), and inflammatory bowel disease. Additionally, a number of chronic diseases have inflammatory components, such as atherosclerosis, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and perhaps even Alzheimer's disease.” Victoria J. Drake, PhD

 

“The fluoride/aluminum association is of particular importance as it relates to Alzheimer's Disease. Aluminum by itself is not readily absorbed by the body. However, in the presence of fluoride ions, the fluoride ions combine with the aluminum to form aluminum fluoride, which is absorbed by the body. In the body, the aluminum eventually combines with oxygen to form aluminum oxide or alumina (53). Alumina is the compound of aluminum that is found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease.” Ronsivalli, LJ, "Addenda to Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies", Note I don't think things can be clearer than this. So if you want to produce Alzheimer's just feed the old people water with fluoride put in it and "vaccinate" the hell out of them. Know any country where this is being done?

 

 “Old lab rats fed a diet supplemented with a compound from berries and grapes called pterostilbene performed better in mental challenges than their un-supplemented counterparts, The results indicated that in aging rats, pterostilbene was effective in reversing the decline in cognitive function that occurs naturally with age, and that precedes diseases such as Alzheimer's. The results also showed an improvement in the working memory of the animals.  Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, 56(3):636-641, 2008

 

“A common cause of memory loss is insufficient supply of necessary nutrients to the brain. If the blood is "thick" with cholesterol and triglycerides, the amount of nutrient-rich blood that can pass through the blood brain barrier decreases. Malnourishment of the brain can occur, especially if the condition is chronic in nature. Deficiencies in amino acids and B vitamins, especially Vitamins B6 and B12, are other modifiable causes of dementia. Deficiency of Vitamin B12 produces pseudo-AD symptoms. ” Doctor Michael Lam MD

 

“Levels of antioxidants Vitamin A, E, and the carotenoids (including beta-carotene) are also low in people with dementia and AD. These nutrients act as free radical scavengers, a deficiency of which may expose the brain cells to increased oxidative damage. Long term longitudinal studies in Switzerland spanning 22 years, from 1971 to 1993, and involving 442 subjects aged 65 to 94, have shown that higher ascorbic acid and beta-carotene plasma levels are associated with better performance in terms of memory and recall. ”  Doctor Michael Lam MD

 

“Over-Medication and Drug Interaction: The average person aged 65 is likely to be taking between 8 and 10 different prescription and / or over-the-counter drugs. Drug interactions, coupled with a nutrient poor diet, often results mental symptomatology in addition to physical problems. Chronic alcohol abuse can lead to symptoms closely resembling Alzheimer’s disease. Solutions: Cut down the number of medications as much as possible.”   Doctor Michael Lam MD 

 

“Nattokinase was found to degrade three different forms of fibrils: A-beta-40 fibrils, linked to Alzheimer’s; insulin fibrils, linked to diabetic complications and prion peptide fibrils, responsible for prion diseases." Ruei-Lin Hsu et al

 

"People with Parkinson's disease are more likely to be vitamin D deficient than healthy adults of the same age or patients with Alzheimer's disease. According to a study of 300 people from the Southeast United States, 55% of patients with Parkinson's disease had insufficient levels of vitamin D, compared to 36% and 41% for healthy people and patients with Alzheimer's disease." Marian Evatt et al, Emory University School of Medicine

 

"Are we defectively designed so that we cannot be happy or concentrate or remember things without pills? Is depression a Prozac deficiency? Is ADHD a Ritalin deficiency? Is Alzheimer's an Aricept deficiency? I think not. " Doctor Mark Hyman MD

 

"An increased plasma homocysteine level is an independent risk factor for the development of dementia and Alzheimer's disease." NEJM 2002

 

"Alzheimer's disease was more than twice as common among the women with the highest levels of homocysteine than among those with the lowest, and the risk for any kind of dementia was 70 per cent higher.  This opens the possibility for future preventive treatment at a very early stage."     Doctor Dimitri Zylberstein University of Gothenburg

 

"Curcumin and vitamin D3 may help the immune system clear protein plaques linked to Alzheimer's."  Journal of Alzheimer's Disease

 

"Alzheimer's disease was more than twice as common among the women with the highest homocysteine levels as those with the lowest and the risk for any type of dementia was 70% higher."   Doctor Dimitri Zylberstein University of Gothenburg

 

"Recent research shows blueberries can be a great ally in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Blueberries limit brain injury caused by ischemic stroke. Blueberries work by protecting the brain against oxidative damage and inflammation. The two main causes behind mental decline.”   Doctor Al Sears MD

 

“In a Swedish study each increase in blood B12 levels by a single tiny unit -– called a "picomole" -- led to a 2 percent dip in Alzheimer's risk, according to the study in Neurology. What's more, the researchers found that every micromolar rise in the inflammation marker homocysteine upped Alzheimer's risk by 16 percent."   Doctor William Douglass MD, Note homocysteine is HUGE and is prevented in part by vitamin B12

You know Germany's RKI is pretty vax crazy (just check out the suggested schedule - I say suggested as vaccines are by no means mandatory for going to daycare, school or working as health care professional). Yet they only recommend flu shots for immunocompromised and elderly people, not for every single human being out there. ANd people don't drop like flies from the flu, strangely enough ;) The whole Alzheimer thing is very worrisome... My parents are sheeple when it comes to whatever their doc says and yearly get the thimerosal=version of the flu shot, not even knowing which brand. :(

All of these are first thought, and not fully formed ideas…but here goes.

 

The idea that vaccines may contribute to alzheimers does make some sense.  I know there is a controversy about whether or not aluminum causes alzheimers.  A quick look at some mainstream sites yesterday was not reassuring.  Most say there is evidence aluminum is a concern, but then go on to say the evidence is not causal.  I am going to cherry-pick some wording from this article, but the whole thing is very wishy-washy to me:

 

http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/site/scripts/documents_info.php?documentID=99

 

 "number of environmental factors have been put forward as possible contributory causes of Alzheimer's disease in some people. Among these is aluminium. There is circumstantial evidence linking this metal with Alzheimer's disease, but no causal relationship has yet been proved. As evidence for other causes continues to grow, a possible link with aluminium seems increasingly unlikely."

 

and

 

"It has proved extremely difficult to devise studies to resolve this problem one way or another. Alzheimer's is a common disease with multiple causes, while aluminium is widespread in the environment, and there are no methods that allow us to measure an individual's 'body burden' or lifetime exposure to this element."

 
I also thought this article was interesting:
 
I am left with the idea that some scientists do think aluminum and alzheimers do go together, they simply have not or cannot prove it.
 
So, if alzeheimers is linked to aluminum, and vaccine have aluminum in them, I do wonder if vaccines may contribute to alzheimers. 
 
I suspect minimizing aluminum is a good idea. The question is if the benefits of the flu vaccines outweigh the aluminum issue - and my suspicion is "no."  
 
Another question is if drugs injected into the body are worse those those injested - I suspect yes (things are meant to be injested) but I am open to being proved right or wrong.  
 
Lastly, we know vaccines can be implicated in rare cases in neurological issues (seizures, brain damage, autism).  Alzheimers is a neurological issue. 

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

just cause i'm the kind who does this, alzheimer's is not a brain disease and it is not caused by EMF or other such things.

 

 

it's looking very much like Type III diabetes.

as for the 'flu shot, a saying involving a dead and rotting corpse applies here (only i don't see why it should be mine).

No kidding! Just this week at the health food store, which is an annual event I hear, people come in to get flu ease/remedy supplements because they, "just got a free flu shot and now they have the flu." Then, an RN 'in the know' buys up Wellness Formula (no idea who makes this) because, 'people are getting their flu shots and she doesn't want to catch it when they come back in!'

Louis, 

Since you seem to think that low vitamin D is cause for everything, how do you explain people who work all day outside with no sunsheild, and who eat plenty of vitamin D getting sick? I live in a farming community- believe me, these people are getting enough vitamin d.

I'm not Louis, LOL, but I would venture a guess that pesticides have a lot to do with it.

people still get sick.  vitD isn't a panacea - but if you have optimal levels of vitD in your system (which means your body shuts off production once the tank is full), you won't be hit as hard and you'll be able to shake it off faster.  if you don't have enough vitD, you're going to get sick worse, take far longer to recover, and are more prone to the worse side effects.

Just want to say this sounds amazing! Hope your twins are sticking in there by the way. :) 

 

Can we extend this to debate about the incidence of major diseases in Africa (lots vit D there) compared to say Iceland?

I suppose we could - but let's face it:  Vit. levels are only one component of health.  Iceland has more food availability, better sanitation, access to good medical care, etc..

 

Much more useful would be comparing like with like -  if Vit. D levels affect level of health among nurses aged 30-50 in the USA, for example.

Or I suppose could compare health in CA, FL with northern parts of the US in the winter months. :)

That would be more useful.

 

This is somewhat OT - but Vit. D is brought up a lot - it would be interesting to see what the body of evidence says about it.  I am sure I saw skeptic blog recently that was trying to debunk Vit. D claims.  It would be an interesting topic for health and healing.

 Since most people who are out in the sun slather themselves with suncreen - just comparing this would not tell us anything at all - not to mention that health is much more than one's vitamin d level.

All the information I have tells me the risk to reward for the "flu shot" is off the chart. Say like 100,000 to 1 against taking the shot.

 

And being 73 I sure consider Alzheimer's a much bigger threat than a silly cold.

 

"We have found that clinically normal individuals aged 60-65 who receive influenza vaccine three or four times during a five-year period, will five years later have an incidence of Alzheimer's disease 10-fold greater than age-matched individuals who did not receive it."  Doctor H. Hugh Fudenburg, MD, Note and CDC cannot figure out where Alzheimer's is coming from. Right!  90% of our seniors are getting the "flu vaccine" toxin.

The flu isn't just some "silly cold"!    Here's a helpful link so we can take the information and make decisions. http://health.howstuffworks.com/diseases-conditions/infectious/question744.htm

 

Who's Hugh?  Is that new data?  Is it published somewhere? Please do share.

I really dont think this is the case. I think there are loads and loads of farmers and people who work outside for a living that, like my DH, are "too busy" to bother with sunscreen. I know at least 20 guys who work outside and not a one of them wears sunscreen, despite their wives constantly nagging them to. 

 

I think most moms who take kids outside slather them in sunscreen, but as far as the people who spend the majority of their days outdoors- no, I really dont think thats the case.

If we could control for the variables, sure. I live in one of the sunniest parts of Australia, averaging 11+ hours of "bright sunshine" during the summer months, according to the government meteorology site. It goes down to an average of 5-6 hours so called "bright sunlight" in winter, but even then we'd be hard pressed to find the sun as winter is when we get the majority of our precipitation for the year. Everyone is either under an umbrella, indoors, or layered in fleece sweaters. My point is, even though we live in a very temperate climate, with heaps of sun for the majority of the year, we also experience a definite dip in sunshine levels in winter and corresponding lack of natural vit D--and a vigorous flu season as well. Australian media was going on about us being vitamin D deficient which must sound absurd to foreigners hearing it.

 

I think my old city in northern Canada actually gets more sun during the winter than we do here in Australia. Of course, the latitude difference means its substantially weaker, but it's a case of having bright winter sun at 53 degrees north or sun MIA at 32 degrees south. Hmm.
