If you know anyone who believes in the flu shot, show them this.

Flu, vaccine loading...

Did you get your flu shot this year?

If you haven’t, you haven’t missed a thing. If you have, chances are it’s not the flu shot that kept you healthy this season. It turns out the flu shot offers no immunity against the flu. Moreover, there is no legitimate scientific evidence that suggests that it would. It is all about marketing and fear tactics, not valid protection.

According to a recent study published in the science journal, PLoS, by the Scripps Research institute, the flu shot s nothing more than a medical hoax, one of the greatest ones in history. (1)

Is the Flu shot really useless? 


Turns out that the production method of the vaccine is nearly useless. It causes viral strains to mutate into non-effective structures that makes them unable to protect you. At one point in time, the influenza vaccine might’ve been somewhat useful. The study explains, however, that its effectiveness has steadily declined over the recent years due to the mutation caused by the egg-based vaccine production process. Despite this, when flu shots appear to be ineffective, some doctors recommend getting vaccinated twice. News flash: the flu shot won’t work better even if you get it multiple times. The first commercial flu vaccine was developed and approved over 70 years ago and is being pushed more and more on the population in recent years. In those recent years, the vaccine has shown a particularly low rate of effectiveness. (1, 2)

Denying the failure to protect you, the vaccine industry still pushes you to get vaccinated claiming that all vaccines work all the time, on all people and they cause no risk but are safe for everyone. (3, 4)

The truth is that nothing can work on all people, at all times, and current flu vaccines seem to not work in most cases. Vaccines can actually expose its recipient to serious risks due to their toxic and unnatural ingredients. According to a government-run VAERS database 144 children were killed by vaccines in 2016. Many claim that some vaccines can cause children to go paralyzed, suffer neurological disorders, go into a coma, or even become autistic as side effects from vaccines. Of course, these vaccine debates and vaccine cases are usually related to children being on a rigorous vaccination regiment getting dozens of shots at ones, rather than people getting their yearly flu vaccines. (5 6, 7, 8, 9)


What does the flu shot actually say?

If you check the ingredients and instruction insert sheet of a flu vaccine, you will find no evidence supporting its usefulness. What you will see is that there have been no controlled trials that adequately demonstrate decreasing your chances of the flu and that it hasn’t been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential. (10, 11)

The CDC claims that the effectiveness of the flu vaccine varies and can reduce your risk by 40 – 60 percent. Considering the large number of flu-related illnesses in the US, they recommend it as an important preventative tool. (12)

What else can I do? 


Whether you get vaccinated or not, washing your hands regularly, covering your face, staying away from sick people, eating a healthy diet filled with greens, vegetables and fruits, getting enough sleeping and exercising regularly can lower your chances of getting sick. If you do get sick, a healthy diet, foods with antiviral and inflammation-reducing properties, such as turmeric and ginger, soothing teas, and rest can help you recover faster. (13, 14)

Consider all factors and make an informed decision that feels the best for you when it comes to the flu shot and protecting yourself against illness.
