DOES THE VACCINE MATTER
This hub is a review of a recent The Atlantic November 2009 published an article "Does the Vaccine Matter?" The purpose is to encourage you to go read the article, get the facts and get educated before rushing out for your influenza vaccine.
Shannon Brownlee is an investigative journalist and writer for the British medical journal BMJ.
This comprehensive 3-page
article is a must read for everyone who wants to get the facts and take responsibility for their health.
The biotech industrial complex is like a science-fiction environment. In secrecy, do we know what compounds are bubbling in the laboratories? I even wonder if they know all the components of the agents they are manufacturing. Mixing up so many chemicals produces unknown results.
Nevertheless, our governments and world governments and overseeing bodies continue to promote injecting these mixed disease materials into the bodies of humans and pets.
They believe they are doing
good. They believe they are preventing untold numbers of deaths. I question the
“numbers” and “statistics”. Natural News just came out with the latest reports
that H1N1 numbers are hyped up and kudos to CBS broadcasters for publishing
these facts to the public.
Excerpt from The Atlantic: “The CDC has recommended that some 159 million adults and children receive either a swine flu shot or a dose of MedImmune’s nasal vaccine this year. ”
A month ago, while driving
around town I heard the commercials “SELLING” vaccinations at your local
Wal-Mart. This really sent me over the edge. They are not asking you to see
your doctor, so that you can be monitored and evaluated. Just go get a shot
like it is a candy bar.
The main question to ask yourself, your leaders, your doctor, your government is, “What if everything we think we know about fighting influenza is wrong? What if flu vaccines do not actually protect people from dying—particularly the elderly, who account for 90 percent of deaths from seasonal flu? And what if the expensive antiviral drugs that the government has stockpiled over the past few years also have little, if any, power to reduce the number of people who die or are hospitalized?”
This gets to the heart of the matter. What’s the MATTER? What’s is in the matter? What’s the matter with our thinking?
We know that a belief system directs the way we behave and our actions. Now what if we must re-evaluate our thinking and make a change in course, even if the financial loss of our investments are great? Do you do it? Is money more important than lives and morals?
The problem is that people
are blinded and will not look at the facts in front of their faces. There are
EXPERT scientists and physicians giving warning about the ramifications and
long-term results of vaccination and over-vaccination. Where is the media? Why
are they not covering these experts?
I highly recommend reading the articles bravely posted in The Atlantic. They are thorough and to the point. They provide the history of influenza in the world.
The article gives some historical background to influenza, including the seasonal cycles. Today, seasonal flu is estimated to kill about 36,000 people in the United States each year, and half a million worldwide. They call into question what we categorize as H1N1 or influenza as a labeled disease, since so many other illness have similar symptoms.
The article calls into question our methods of dealing with these types of illnesses.
Is it the Military Tactical Approach of Kill Everything in Your Path? Do they
use MASS HYSTERIA and promote FEAR to get the population to abide by their
methods? Using numbers as scientific fact when they can be manipulated and even
fiction is becoming more commonplace. People are getting wise to these tactics.
The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology 2009 summer predictions warned that swine flu, H1N1 would effect one-third and one-half of the U.S. population and possibly kill 90,000 Americans. The winter season is playing out as quite mild and the numbers do not live up to the predictions.
The death toll has effected mostly individuals with weakened immune systems with chronic asthma, bronchitis, heart disease, auto-immune disease or congenital conditions like cerebral palsy.
These officials attempt to give cause and effect reasoning that appears on the surface to validate their claims. However, those blinders again do not let them see that the natural curve for the rise and fall of an epidemic disease just unexpectedly coincided with the application of vaccination programs throughout history. Many other nations around the world have come to this realization and do not vaccinate their people.
The majority of death occur from secondary infections like pneumonia or bronchitis. Statistical records typical lump all deaths into the one group of influenza without separating out for secondary infection. Then they compare those who have been vaccinated with those who have not been vaccinated.
Now let us study the true numbers of mortality in those populations who receive the flu shot and those who do not. That is also found in The Atlantic article.
Influenza causes only a small minority of all deaths in the U.S., even among senior citizens, and even after adding in the deaths to which flu might have contributed indirectly. When researchers from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases included all deaths from illnesses that flu aggravates, like lung disease or chronic heart failure, they found that flu accounts for, at most, 10 percent of winter deaths among the elderly. So how could flu vaccine possibly reduce total deaths by half? Tom Jefferson, a physician based in Rome and the head of the Vaccines Field at the Cochrane Collaboration, a highly respected international network of researchers who appraise medical evidence, says: “For a vaccine to reduce mortality by 50 percent and up to 90 percent in some studies means it has to prevent deaths not just from influenza, but also from falls, fires, heart disease, strokes, and car accidents. That’s not a vaccine, that’s a miracle.” . . .When researchers crunch the numbers, they typically try to factor out variables that could bias the results, but, as Jefferson remarks, “you can adjust for the confounders you know about, not for the ones you don’t,” and researchers can’t always anticipate what factors are likely to be important to whether a patient dies from flu. There is always the chance that they might miss some critical confounder that renders their results entirely wrong. You will learn about which populations typically take the flu shot and which do not. What are the demographics like lifestyle, education and status in overall health in these two populations that could effect the long-term outcome?

You will begin to ask more questions. You will become more educated on the Vaccine issue. You will make better decisions about your health care. You will wonder how much power and influence the pharmaceutical industries have in your life when you see how much they can profit from producing these vaccines and other drugs. Natural remedies can help to strengthen your immune system, but they cannot make such huge profits or patent these products.
Just read this little bit:
People with weakened immune system, such as older generations, infants, and the chronically ill, do not respond well to vaccines and this is the group that is likely to succumb to a contagious epidemic. While those who have a strong immune system can more likely cope with infection, which results in lifetime immunity.
QUESTIONING WHO GETS THE VACCINE AND WHY?
So we might question whether it is worth giving the vaccine to healthy individuals? Why don't we let them build up their own immunity without imposing any external stimuli? And, it is precarious to impose upon the weakened system of the elderly, very young and chronically ill another disease element to ward off.
WHERE IS THE SCIENCE?
Jefferson puts on the table the need for placebo-controlled trials, studies that would randomly give half the test subjects vaccine and the other half a dummy shot, or placebo. Only such large, well-constructed, randomized trials can show with any precision how effective vaccine really is, and for whom. This appears to be a moral question for those with the 'belief system' that vaccination programs work absolutely to prevent mass deaths and disease. However, without long-term observation and records of vaccination effects we have no real facts.
None of the manufacturers of these vaccines have shown proper scientific method before producing and delivering these vaccines. The general population become
the guinea pigs, a massive experiment, and the negative outcomes may last a life time.
It’s up to you. Become educated. The information is free for everyone on the internet. It’s a new world. Read. Learn. Decide. Get in touch with your intuition. Who is the skeptic now?
An introduction to the world of influenza, the swine flu, and the pros and cons of vaccinations can be found on Homeopathy World Community in the group called Swine Flu Group Articles. There are numerous articles regarding influenza, epidemics, vaccinations, swineflu and health
