The Flu Shot Scam- Part 1 (The Reuters Report on Flu Study)

On September 20, 2011| Reuters published a story about a flu shot study that the CDC used to change policy on the influenza vaccination age.

Below is a video explaining why this is a flawed and misleading study.

 

 

Additional Information:

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) investigated the role of vitamin D in protection against the flu. The agency began a study in 2008 on the role of vitamin D in severe seasonal influenza.

While the study started out focused on seasonal flu, the agency has adapted the study to the swine flu virus as well. Most people do not realize that vitamin D, unlike flu shots, is a proven method to keep yourself from catching an infectious disease.

Dr. John Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council, first introduced the hypothesis that influenza is merely a symptom of vitamin D deficiency in the paper Epidemic Influenza and Vitamin D, published in the journal Epidemiology and Infection three years ago, followed up with another study published in the Virology Journal in 2008. The findings were confirmed by another study -- the largest and most nationally representative of its kind to date -- that involved about 19,000 Americans. It found that people with the lowest blood vitamin D levels reported having significantly more recent colds or cases of the flu.

The lead author Dr. Adit Ginde stated: "The findings of our study support an important role for vitamin D in prevention of common respiratory infections, such as colds and the flu. Individuals with common lung diseases, such as asthma or emphysema, may be particularly susceptible to respiratory infections from vitamin D deficiency."

A brand new study also found that vitamin D can reduce both the incidence and the severity of viral respiratory tract infections such as the flu. Among people with vitamin D levels of 38 ng/ml or higher, only 16.6 percent developed viral infections, compared to 45 percent of those with lower vitamin D levels.

Canada Also Changed its Flu Vaccination Policy. You may remember back in the spring of 2009, just when the swine flu hysteria was building, that a Canadian study revealed people who had received a regular, seasonal flu shot were twice as likely to catch swine flu. Then again, you may not have heard this before. The United States media pretty much ignored the findings and continued to recommend that vaccinations for both seasonal and H1N1 flu.

In certain Canadian provinces however, the study was compelling enough for them to suspend seasonal flu shots for anyone under 65, and further studies were recommended to find out what was really going on.

Well, several epidemiologic investigations were conducted over the summer of 2009, and the results are now in. The finding? Seasonal flu shot DID increase the risk of catching swine flu, but only certain parts of Canada acted proactively to suspend seasonal flu shots in some areas, while the United States continued on full force. Shockingly the US Public Health Service has COMPLETLEY ignored these findings and the flu shot that was given in the US was combined with H1N1, which based on the findings above, will actually INCREASE the risk of flu and its complications.

You can begin to appreciate that the government is partnering with the drug companies to increase their profits rather than performing their mandated role to police them and protect your health.

Over the last four (4) years, Canada has had a grand total of 16 "flu-associated" fatalities for their pediatric age category -- which includes everybody under the age of 18.

This included all H1N1 and seasonal cases. Three-quarters (3/4) of these deaths had severe and chronic underlying health conditions which rendered then severely weekened before contracting the flu.

That's 16 total deaths among a pediatric population of 7.86 million, the majority of whom -- 60 percent or more -- remained unvaccinated against the flu.
