“Here come the fear mongers…just in time for the flu vaccine marketing season…. Fear is used to persuade Americans to roll up their sleeves and hand over their children to be vaccinated. Years ago, people developed resistance the old fashioned way: By getting the flu. And then when that type of flu came around again years or decades later, they either didn’t get sick or had only a mild case. The vaccine marketeers want to take that away from our population. What will that make us? Vaccine dependent, of course.” – Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center
Three important reasons to avoid the flu shot:
- The flu shot contains formaldehyde, gelatin and traces of chicken cells.
- The flu shot contains viral contaminants that have been linked to cancer.
- You can get the flu shot – and all the risks that go with it – and still get the flu!

Another good reason to avoid the shot: to avoid Alzheimer’s DiseaseAccording to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world’s leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our time (over 850 papers in peer reviewed journals), if an individual has five consecutive flu shots their chance of getting Alzheimer’s is ten times higher!

Flu hysteria is on the way (again)
Reports claim that “Influenza kills 30,000 to 40,000 Americans every year.” (3) That is simply not the case. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the number of people who die of the flu are a fraction of that. Here is what the CDC says:
In 2002: 753 died of the flu (4)
In 2001: 267 died of the flu (5)
In 2000: 2,175 died of the flu (6)
In 1999: 1,685 died of the flu (7)
Flu shot does not save lives
The ads say “The flu shot saves lives,” but research reveals it’s not so. The flu vaccine isn’t preventing death in the elderly, the “high risk group” that is told to get a flu shot to reduce mortality, according to a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine. (8) Although immunization rates in those over 65 have increased 50% in the past 20 years, there has been no decline in flu-related deaths. In addition to ineffectiveness, the flu shot’s typical ingredients include aluminum (associated with Alzheimer’s and seizures), mercury (linked to brain damage, ADHD and autism) and phenol (a carcinogen).
In fact, mortality rates for those over 85 between 1968 and 2001 showed no change as well. The authors add: “Studies substantially overestimate vaccination benefit”; a diplomatic way of saying it’s useless.
