Regular Flu Vaccine Actually INCREASES Risk of Swine Flu

In September 2009, news stories reported that researchers in Canada had found an increased risk of pandemic H1N1 (pH1N1) influenza in people who had previously been vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

In a school outbreak of pH1N1 in spring 2009, people with cough and fever were found to have received prior seasonal flu vaccination more often than those without.

Several public health agencies in Canada therefore undertook four additional studies during the summer of 2009 to investigate further. Taken together, the four studies included approximately 2,700 people with and without pH1N1.

The first of the studies found the seasonal vaccine to be associated with an increased risk of approximately 68 percent for pH1N1 disease.

The further 3 studies similarly found between 1.4 and 1.5 times increased likelihood of pH1N1 illness in people who had received the seasonal vaccine compared to those who had not.

WHO Finally Admits They Screwed up on Swine Flu

In related news, the World Health Organization (WHO) has admitted that it made mistakes in its response to H1N1 swine flu.

WHO influenza expert Keiji Fukuda conceded that the six-phase system for declaring a pandemic was confusing, and resulted in widespread panic about an illness which proved to be even less deadly than the similarly overhyped bird flu.

Critics have pointed out WHO's links to the pharmaceutical industry. Many drug companies made huge profits when governments bought enormous stockpiles of H1N1 vaccine, much of which has gone unused.

Answers wanted over flu vaccine problems

Health consumers say they need answers from health authorities to restore confidence in vaccination.

Hundreds of children in WA suffered fever, vomiting and convulsions after receiving the flu vaccine.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has tested the batches of vaccine from WA and found there was nothing abnormal about them.

Further tests are planned and in the meantime a ban on vaccinating children under the age of five remains.

Maxine Drake from the WA Health Consumers Council says the lack of information could permanently deter some parents from vaccinating their children.

"People will want valid plausible explanations and they will want openness and honesty about what has happened here," she said.

"Nobody will benefit from the Government or the public health experts cajoling and in a way intimidating people back into vaccination it has to be done by reinstating people's confidence through good science and good explanation.

"I think that the vaccination rates will likely dip until we can get a good explanation and help people to feel confident again.

The WA Health Department is urging parents to weigh up the risks of vaccination sensibly.

Risks vs benefits

Those with compromised immune systems may need to exercise caution. I am in favour of vaccinations generally, but if there is an increased risk of us getting sick we need to exercise caution.

Such problems are of more concern to those of us with chronic diseases - we are at risk of dying through their mistakes.

U.S. has 71 million unused flu vaccine doses

(Reuters) - The United States still has 71 million doses of H1N1 swine flu vaccine that have not been used, but it is not yet time to throw them out, the federal government said on Monday.

States and other providers should hang on to the vaccine and continue to offer them to people until drug companies can start distributing seasonal vaccine for the coming influenza season in the autumn, said Health and Human Services Department spokesman Bill Hall.

Senator Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance committee, released a letter on Monday that he sent to HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius asking her how much vaccine was left over and when it would expire.

H1N1 swine flu is still technically causing a pandemic and health officials say anyone who has not been vaccinated should still try, in case it causes a third wave of serious disease.

Health experts consider swine flu likely to join the mix of seasonal flu viruses and it will be included in the seasonal flu vaccine for 2010-2011, which will also contain two other flu strains.

When the H1N1 virus started spreading in April, HHS and its agencies, along with commercial flu vaccine makers, rushed to formulate and make a vaccine.

Influenza vaccines are made using old and unwieldy methods that require incubating the virus in chicken eggs, and the process always takes months.

Vaccine started rolling out in October and the U.S. eventually ordered 229 million doses from its five licensed makers -- Novartis, AstraZeneca unit MedImmune, Sanofi Aventis, GlaxoSmithKline and Australian vaccine maker CSL.

Sebelius said last month that 162 million doses were produced and distributed, but only 90 million actually got into people's arms or noses.

VARYING SHELF LIFE

"Depending on the vaccine manufacturer, the shelf life of the H1N1 vaccines range from 18 weeks to 18 months, with some due to expire on June 30, 2010," Grassley wrote in his letter to Sebelius.

"I understand that it is not uncommon for some seasonal flu vaccines to be discarded each year, but the H1N1 vaccines were paid for with taxpayer dollars," he added, asking: "How many doses of vaccine are due to expire on June 30, 2010?"

Hall said the department would respond to Grassley.

"There are approximately 71 million doses, held by states, the distributor or the manufacturers, that remain unused, and have varying expiration dates, some as long as early 2011," Hall said by e-mail.

"We have asked states to hold on to any vaccine that has not expired, in case we continue to have regional upticks in disease, another wave, or another early start to the flu season. We are holding onto that vaccine (and advising states and vaccinators to hold onto theirs) until there is sufficient seasonal vaccine (which includes coverage for the 2009 H1N1 virus) to replace it."

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that H1N1 has killed at least 12,000 Americans and put more than 265,000 in hospital. People with chronic diseases such as asthma or diabetes, pregnant women and children were at highest risk.

Grassley also asked Sebelius whether HHS would try to increase distribution of seasonal flu vaccines.

Swine flu vaccines going to waste

New research suggests a large percentage of the free swine flu vaccine is being thrown away.

Researchers from Sydney University and from within the New South Wales Health Department surveyed 300 general practices in Sydney's south-west.

The survey showed 42 per cent of the overall doses were thrown away.

The letter goes on to say that if similar wastage occurred nationally, more than 7.5 million of the 19 million doses available could be wasted.

They say the use of 10-millilitre multi-dose vials could be to blame, because the vials have to be thrown away within 24 hours of being pierced.

The researchers say multi-dose vials are an inefficient method of presenting pandemic influenza vaccines for general practice use.

They say their study only covers the first month of the free vaccination program, so the results could vary.

The research is published in the letters section of today's issue of the Medical Journal of Australia.

Seaweed may halt swine flu spread

Tasmanian scientists have discovered a compound occuring naturally in seaweed which could be the key to beating swine flu.

The compound is found in seaweed off Tasmania's east coast and is considered a natural defence against marine viruses and toxins.

Scientists at a private laboratory near Hobart have tested the compound against several viruses and say it profoundly inhibits the H1N1 virus.

Dr Helen Fitton says viruses use receptors to get into cells, but this process is stopped in the presence of the seaweed compound.

"The virus is unable to use its receptor to get into the cell," she said.

Marinova Laboratories CEO Paul Garrott says he is anticipating immediate commercial interest and expects the compound will be used in nasal sprays, hand washes and tablets.

"This whole class of fucoidan compounds have been shown to have very profound antiviral activities against a range of influenza strains, against a range of other viruses and coated viruses - we mentioned HIV, we mentioned the herpes simplex virus."

Finland suspends H1N1 vaccines after children suffer narcolepsy from vaccinations

(NaturalNews) Shortly after Australia banned flu vaccines in children due to an alarming increase in vomiting, fevers and seizures caused by the vaccines (http://www.naturalnews.com/029586_A...), Finland has now suspended H1N1 vaccines due to increased reports of narcolepsy in children and teens. Narcolepsy is a nervous system disorder characterized by extreme fatigue and daytime sleepiness. It indicates a serious malfunction of the brain and nervous system.

Finland is now reporting that narcolepsy is appearing in children immediately following vaccination with H1N1 vaccines. So far, six children are confirmed of suffering the neurological side effect and nine more are in the process of being confirmed, reports The Epoch Times (http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/con...).

The Finland National Institute for Health (THL) said in a press release that the cause of the narcolepsy may be the vaccine, and they are investigating further.

Sweden's Medical Products Agency, meanwhile, launched a similar investigation on August 19 to try to determine the cause of post-vaccination narcolepsy also found in children there. The vaccines appear to be causing a pattern of neurological disorders affecting children and teens across the planet.

The harm caused by flu vaccines

H1N1 swine flu vaccines and seasonal flu vaccines have been linked to seizures and other neurological disorders, and they have resulted in some children and teens being paralyzed or even killed. At the same time, there is no scientific evidence whatsoever that seasonal flu vaccines are even safe or effective -- they've never been subjected to double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, which are considered the "gold standard" of scientific investigation.

There's no real evidence that seasonal flu vaccines work at all, in fact. Most of the people who get sick every winter, it turns out, are the very people who got vaccinated. That's because vaccines actually weaken the immune system and cause increased risk of future infections. A study published in the journal PLoS revealed that seasonal flu vaccination actually increases the risk of H1N1 swine flu infections ("Does Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Increase the Risk of Illness with the 2009 A/H1N1 Pandemic Virus?" Viboud C, Simonsen L (2010) PLoS Med 7(4): e1000259).

Also see: http://www.naturalnews.com/028538_s...

Rather than protecting the public, seasonal flu vaccines and H1N1 swine flu vaccines actually leave them more vulnerable to future infections. That simple fact, combined with the increasing reports of neurological side effects being linked to vaccines, should raise serious questions about the reasoning behind any mass-vaccination program.

When it comes to vaccines, children seem to suffer more than adults. It is the children who are winding up in hospitals, convulsing with seizures or suffering narcolepsy. The saddest part of this is that these children could be very effectively protected from seasonal flu with vitamin D, but the medical industry isn't recommending vitamin D for children.

Vaccines remain the prescription for everyone; even as children around the world are suffering the consequences.

Flu rates skyrocket 700%

THE number of flu cases in Brisbane is seven times higher than it was in December 2009, experts say.

An extended flu season means that people are getting sick in the middle of summer when many of us don't expect it.

According to Queensland Health, 338 people have contracted the virus this December as opposed to just 47 last year.

Dr Richard Kidd from the Australian Medical Association said that people who caught the virus in previous years have a better chance of avoiding it.

''It's because we didn't get a peak (in cases) earlier in the year like we normally do, so we're having an extended season now,'' he said.

''A lot of people will catch the flu if they don't have really good immunity from catching it in years before.

''The real message is that people should have their flu shots each year, because the influenzas do change.''

People are advised to get booster shots of the flu vaccine, particularly the elderly and those with chronic conditions.

Dr Kidd says anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms should see a doctor within 36 hours and is hopeful this extended flu season will taper off soon.

Swine flu pandemic outbreak sweeping through Britain even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year

(NaturalNews) A swine flu pandemic is sweeping through Britain despite the fact that 70 percent of Britain's over-65 population was vaccinated against swine flu last year. This year, that number is nearly the same -- 68.5% -- but flu vaccine proponents insist that until everyone is vaccinated, the flu will continue to infect people.

What these vaccine advocates absolutely will not admit, however, is how many of those who are sick with the flu this year also got vaccinated last year. This little detail is left out of every mainstream media report on vaccines and the flu. They simply refuse to mention this all-important number, leaving readers to leap to the incorrect conclusion that only those who were not vaccinated get sick with the flu.

Most infected patients were previously vaccinated

That assumption is false. In fact, of the 450 critical care beds in England that are now occupied by flu patients, I have no doubt that most of those infected patients are people who received flu vaccines in the past.

Such statistics are never made available to the public or the press, of course. To release such statistics would expose the Great Lie of the vaccine industry: That flu vaccines simply don't work on 99 percent of people!

In fact, the people who are most susceptible to catching the flu are precisely the very same people who get vaccinated. Why is that? Because vaccines weaken the immune system in the long run, leaving you more vulnerable to future infections. They deny your immune system the opportunity to practice its own adaptive response to invading microorganisms or viruses, thereby causing your immune system to atrophy in the same way that a wheelchair-bound person will experience leg muscle atrophy.

The immune system is a lot like a muscle: Use it or lose it!

But flu vaccines provide weakened viruses to the immune system (along with other preservative chemicals that can be extremely dangerous to neurological health). It's sort of like working out your muscles at the gym but having your trainer do all the heavy lifting for you. Obviously you're not going to have very strong muscles in the end because your body won't need to invoke a very strong adaptive response.

The same is true with vaccines and the flu: If your body is exposed to weakened flu viruses year after year, it gets lazy and weak, and when it one day comes into contact with a full-strength virus circulating in the wild, it's not in good enough shape to handle the challenge.

Vitamin D deficiency is widespread in Britain

At the same time this is going on, a person who is vitamin D deficient will also have an alarmingly weak immune system response because vitamin D activates the immune system to do its job. In people with extremely low vitamin D levels, even vaccines containing weakened viruses won't solicit an antibody response. But instead of testing patients for vitamin D deficiency and prescribing that with the vaccine, conventional medical doctors and contagious disease authorities robotically urge everyone to just "get multiple vaccine shots" as if following one failed vaccine with yet another failed vaccine will somehow make them both work.

That's idiotic, of course. And the other idiotic thing about all this is that if people had sufficient levels of vitamin D circulating in their blood, they wouldn't need seasonal flu vaccines in the first place! That's because a strong, healthy immune system with lots of circulating vitamin D is universally effective at halting ALL seasonal flu strains, with near 100% success in those with vitamin D levels between 50 - 70 (ng/dL).

The three main reasons behind Britain's flu pandemic

So the real reason Britain is suffering a swine flu pandemic right now is actually three-fold:

#1) It's winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and Britain is so far north (of the equator) that the people living there aren't currently generating any vitamin D whatsoever. This makes virtually the entire British population ridiculously vitamin D deficient throughout the winter.

#2) The majority of the British population has been subjected to flu vaccines in previous years, weakening their immune systems and making them more vulnerable to this year's flu strains.

#3) The flu strain itself is so successful in the wild precisely because so many Britons walk around in chronic states of immune suppression (from vitamin D deficiency, chronic stress, poor dietary habits and so on). This creates a "viral breeding ground" which encourages more rapid virus mutations that make vaccines obsolete anyway.

The question you are not allowed to ask vaccine quacks

The vaccine-pushing quack medical community believes that if they could magically convince 100 percent of the people to get vaccinated, they would have this problem licked. In their own minds, they have unscientifically convinced themselves that a vaccine equals automatic and full protection against a flu virus.

And yet even they won't dare ask this simple question: Of all the people sick from the flu who are right now lying in Britain's hospital beds, what percentage were vaccinated against the flu last year or this year?

The answer to that question will expose the outright fraud of the vaccine industry because the answer is a very large number. No one in the medical industry dares ask that question, of course, because they realize that delving into the actual re-infection rate of flu vaccine recipients would expose their quackery and fraud, causing yet more people to lose faith in vaccines which are, after all, sold based entirely on misplaced faith and clever propaganda.

The flu vaccine propaganda, of course, demands that people never be allowed to collide with the scientific facts about how many people who are vaccinated against the flu still catch the flu anyway. (The flu re-infection rate.) That's why you will NEVER see an honest answer to this question released by hospitals, vaccine companies or vaccine-pushing doctors.

Keep taking your flu jabs, everybody. But don't ask whether they actually work, because that question isn't allowed to be asked in the cult of medicine that dominates the sick-care landscape around the world today.

We wouldn't want actual science to interfere with a really profitable con job now, would we?

UK blames healthy people for causing flu vaccine shortage

(NaturalNews) After months of hyping up the flu scare across the UK, the mad rush of citizens seeking to buy the vaccine has caused a severe shortage. UK hospitals and clinics have run out of the vaccine, and now a prominent doctor from the Royal College of GPs has publicly urged UK authorities to outlaw the purchasing of vaccines by 'healthy people' because they don't really need the vaccine anyway.

Yep. Seriously. As reported by The Telegraph, 'Dr Gerada said that allowing those who could afford it to buy the jab had upset the 'delicate balance' of availability and contributed to shortages, leading to general concern about who should and should not have the vaccine.'

So let me get this straight. As long as the vaccine supply was widely available (lots of shots to sell!), the big flu scare was being used to get everybody to buy as many vaccines as possible: Healthy people, pregnant women, children, senior citizens, you name it. But now, as supplies have run out precisely because of the scare mongering pushed by the vaccine industry, they admit that healthy people really don't need the vaccine anyway!

So what about all those healthy people who already followed orders and enriched Big Pharma by getting the flu shot even though they didn't really need it? Now they're actually being blamed for the vaccine shortage!

As reported in The Telegraph, 'Dr Gerada said healthy individuals who had paid to have the jab on a private patient basis at pharmacies shared some of the blame for the shortages.'

Vaccine industry blames people who buy vaccines

Squeeze yourself to stop the laughter, folks, because it doesn't get any funnier than this. The vaccine industry -- which created the vaccine shortage by floating scare stories about the flu -- is now blaming healthy people who bought the vaccine for 'causing the shortage!'

But of course, if you don't buy the vaccine shot, then you're derided as 'a danger to public health' because you haven't been immunized. So you run out to buy the shot in order to comply with all the flu shot propaganda being pushed out by the industry. Then you get blamed for causing the vaccine shortage by the same nincompoops who told you to go buy the shot in the first place!

So now -- get this -- these vaccine experts are actually pushing to create a law that would criminalize healthy people buying flu vaccines! So the very act that you were urged to do six months ago (go out and buy a vaccine shot) will now turn you into a criminal!

Folks, it doesn't get any more hilarious than this. The vaccine industry is just tripping over its own lies and contradictions, worse than a stuttering Senator caught with another man's hands down his pants in a public restroom.

This law criminalizing vaccine purchases, of course, will only last as long as the vaccines are in short supply. As soon as there's a plentiful supply back in stock, guess what? The law will be repealed and they'll return to their 'everybody go get a flu shot' insanity that caused this mess in the first place.

Stop buying vaccines, for God's sake!

For the moment, however, the message from UK health authorities is very clear: Don't get vaccinated! Also from The Telegraph:

Tricia Cresswell, the deputy medical director at NHS North East, asked those not at risk to stop trying to obtain the vaccine. 'We would urge the worried well -- those who are not at risk -- not to contact their GP or pharmacy. There are others who need the vaccine more than they do.'

So if you're in the 'worried well' group -- meaning that you're healthy but just 'afraid' of the flu -- then you don't need a flu shot!

It's astonishing that they finally publicly admit all this, right out in the open. It's what I've been saying all along, of course: A healthy person, armed with vitamin D and other nutrients, can stave off exposure to influenza using the power of their own immune system. They don't need flu shots!

But the flu pimps have been pushing 'flu shots for everyone!' regardless of health status. That was being done to sell more flu vaccines, of course. It never had anything to do with actual medical science, because as you can see right now, that quack science falls apart as soon as they run out of vaccines.

It's fascinating that all it took was one vaccine shortage for the truth to come out: Healthy people don't need vaccines, even according to the vaccine experts!

I would also argue that even unhealthy people don't need vaccines, either. What they need is nutrition from real foods, superfoods and nutritional supplements. Because beating the flu only requires the activation of the human immune system. And that requires real nutrition.

So the question for everybody in the UK today is this: Should you do what you were told six months ago, or should you do what you're being told today? I suppose for those people who actually follow government orders, it may be quite bewildering to figure out what marching orders you're supposed to follow on any particular day, given how often government demands are nonsensical and contradictory.

It's so much easier to just think for yourself.

Grandmother dies from swine flu soon after receiving swine flu vaccine

(NaturalNews) A 68-year-old UK grandmother named Eleanor Carruthers has died from the swine flu. Importantly, she was given the swine flu vaccine shot several months ago and was told the shot would offer her absolute protection from the flu.

Her daughter, Carole, was quoted in a Dailymail article saying, "'What we don't understand is that mum had the vaccine in October, because she was in an at risk group."

Carol goes on to explain how doctors assured her the vaccine would offer her mom bulletproof protection against the flu: "I had been ill at New Year, and asked the doctors whether I should keep away from mum, but they said the vaccine would protect her from flu." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...)

What Carole was not told, of course, is that she was lied to about the flu vaccine. Flu vaccines are not 100% effective at protecting people from the flu. They're not even 50% effective. In fact, a critical analysis of available data reveals that the flu vaccine is effective in only 1 out of 100 people. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_v...)

Carole was also not told that doctors lie about the effectiveness of flu vaccines and make outrageous claims of protection which are entirely unsubstantiated by the scientific data. This exaggeration of the benefits of flu vaccines is also repeated through advertising and promotional literature, much of which implies a "100% protection" promise for flu vaccines -- even though such a claim is actually fraudulent.

Spreading the vaccine propaganda

The NHS flat-out lies to the public, claiming flu vaccines offer 70 to 80 percent effectiveness. This lie, of course, is critical for the ongoing acceptance of flu vaccines by the public. If any other product was marketed with the same level of deception, regulatory authorities would seek criminal punishment for those responsible. But in the realm of flu vaccines, lies are openly tolerated by regulators in order to push the vaccine agenda.

NaturalNews has long warned people that receiving a flu vaccine shot actually causes an increase in the risk of contracting the flu. Furthermore, most of the people who contract the flu in any given year are the same people who routinely get vaccinated!

Meanwhile, the real solution for flu protection -- nutrition -- is entirely dismissed by health authorities. They refuse to tell people that vitamin D offers highly effective protection against the flu, especially when strengthened by other immune-boosting nutrients such as zinc (http://www.naturalnews.com/027385_V...).

The dirty little secret of the flu vaccine industry

The flu "re-infection rate" for people who were already vaccinated against the flu is intentionally not reported by flu vaccine makers, governments or health professionals because if this number were reported, the flu vaccine fraud would be obvious to everyone, and flu vaccine purchases would plummet. In order to prevent this information from getting out, governments and health care providers all agree to pretend the flu vaccine really works, even while ignoring the deaths of innocent vaccine victims such as Eleanor Carruthers.

It's a classic "The Emperor Has No Clothes" fairy tale, and all the doctors, WHO authorities and government bureaucrats all pretend they can see the Emperor's fine clothes even though he's actually walking around in his underwear.

In the UK, various strains of influenza have killed 112 people in the last four months. It is not known how many of those 112 people were vaccinated. That statistic, it seems, will never be released by health authorities.

It is the "dirty little secret" of the flu vaccine industry -- an industry based entirely on medical quackery and marketing fraud.

http://www.naturalnews.com/031010_swine ... ities.html

[comment - you'll decide whether to have the flu shot or not. Although we are in an at risk category recommended to take it, my doctor hasn't suggested it. Perhaps she is one of the doctors who thought I'd already be dead thus making it unnecessary?]

Free vaccinations after whooping cough outbreak in Perth

A worrying outbreak in whooping cough has forced the state government to offer free vaccinations for parents of newborn babies in a bid to prevent the infection spreading.

Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, can cause severe health problems in young babies, including pneumonia, seizures and has the potential to cause permanent disability or death.

Whooping cough epidemics occur every few years with the last severe outbreak in 2004 and with infection rates on the rise, 2011 is shaping up as another outbreak year.

Advertisement: Story continues below Health Minister Kim Hames said he hoped the introduction of the free vaccine would reduce infection rates in young children across the state, with children under six months of age the most vulnerable.

"Australian research has shown that about 50 per cent of babies who catch whooping cough get it from a family member, most usually a parent," he said.

Dr Hames said adults with whooping cough show milder symptoms than infants, and may not even know they have the infection before it is passed on to a child.

The vaccines are available from maternity hospitals and community health immunisation centres until June 30, 2011.

http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/free- ... 19uly.html

[comment - our daughter is immunised, was given antibiotics and still has whooping cough 5 weeks later. She now just has to ride it out. I am glad she is vaccinated against the traditional diseases, but shows the answer is not just vaccines]

Flu scare fails as public opposes new mega h1n1-loaded vaccine

(NaturalNews) Flu shots have become a product similar to soft drinks or candy bars in the United States. With your local pharmacy advertising flu shots on television and boasting bargain prices, flu shots have become embedded into the mind of the consumer as just another purchase. A purchase that at one time they thought could be beneficial to them, preventing the next wave of the dreary flu that was approaching in a few short months. In light of multiple scientific findings surfacing in the top stories of media outlets worldwide, however, the public is now reconsidering the routine flu shot purchase. So much so that last year Statistics Canada reported that 60% of Canadians and 80% of Americans refused the H1N1 vaccination. The very same H1N1 vaccination that is now coupled with the regular seasonal flu shot.

For Good Reason

It is no coincidence that the public is suspicious over the safety of the flu vaccinations. Organizations around the world have been speaking out against the H1N1 vaccine, linking it to a deadly autoimmune condition known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Even the mainstream media was forced to report on the association between the vaccine and GBS, with the Times Online offering warning that the vaccine had a 'death link'. Neurologists around the world were even warned about the safety of the vaccine by Professor Elizabeth Miller, head of the immunization department for UK's Health Protection Agency.

"The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use," she wrote in a letter to neurologists.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) also issued a warning regarding the H1N1 swine flu vaccine: "Given the uncertainties in the available information and as with seasonal flu vaccines, a slightly elevated risk of GBS following H1N1 vaccines cannot be ruled out. Epidemiological studies are ongoing to further assess this possible association."

Despite prominent professors and organizations proclaiming the H1N1 was unsafe for use, The Department of Health was quick to defend the shot: "Appropriate trials to assess safety and immune responses have been carried out on vaccines very similar to the swine flu vaccine. The vaccines have been shown to have a good safety profile."

Government Admits Link to Guillain-Barre Syndrome

The Department of Health would soon be biting its tongue, as The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) prepared to release vital information regarding the shot. In 2010, in the month of October, the MHRA issued a statement that would confirm what the alternative media had been reporting for months -- the H1N1 vaccine can lead to a deadly autoimmune disease.

Unfortunately by this point countless people have been injected with the H1N1 vaccination. On the flip side, however, 60% of the public surveyed were either not going to get the shot in 2010, or were unsure. A study from Consumer Reports found that 30% of respondents were unsure if they were going to receive the 2010 flu vaccine, and an additional 30% said they were definitely not receiving the shot. This means, assuming the poll was conducted properly to reflect the entire population, around 60% of the population is questioning the effectiveness of the season flu vaccine.

In the UK, among the swine flu pandemic that began late 2010 and into early 2011, the preventative abilities of the vaccine came into question. Despite the fact that 70% of the over-65 population was vaccinated against the swine flu in 2009, and 68.5% in 2010, the virus was voraciously spreading throughout the population of Britain. One such elderly woman received the swine flu vaccination in 2010, only to die from the swine flu months later. Eleanor Carruthers was a 68-year-old grandmother who lived in the UK. Eleanor received the swine flu vaccine under the impression that it would protect her from the flu, which is what her daughter Carole thought as well.

Carol was unsure how her mother had died after being vaccinated against the flu: "'What we don't understand is that mum had the vaccine in October, because she was in an at risk group."

Eleanor was one of the many elderly UK citizens who had been vaccinated against the flu, raising the question as to what percentage of other swine flu victims had received the flu shot before the UK swine flu pandemic. This information has never been released, though various influenza strains have killed over 100 people in the UK over the last four months. With the extreme reactions that go along with the swine flu vaccine, one would assume that there would at least be guaranteed immunity. This is simply not true, however, as unfortunate cases such as the tragic death of Eleanor Carruthers have shown.

With all of the evidence piling up, the question is simple: why would anyone receive the flu vaccine? Quite simply, the answer is fear. The swine flu 'pandemic' scare led to an initial panic, and vaccines were rushed out to the general public in a hasty act of medical irresponsibility. In reality, vitamin D is 800% more effective at preventing the flu than vaccinations. It is important to always do your research before receiving any vaccination or drug of any kind.

Flu vaccine causing infant seizures; FDA to investigate

(NaturalNews) The Sanofi-Aventis flu vaccine known as "Fluzone" is causing febrile seizures in children, the FDA revealed yesterday. According to the FDA, 42 cases of seizures have been reported in children receiving the Fluzone vaccine. Most of the children suffering seizures are under the age of two.

The FDA went out of its way to claim that even though these children suffered seizures, they're all fine now. "All children recovered and no lasting effects have been seen," the FDA said. Can you imagine them making such a statement about an herb that was found to cause seizures? This is a case where the FDA has clearly put itself in the position of defending the safety of the vaccine and downplaying the risk that it sends children into convulsions.

Nearly all the reported seizures occurred within 24 hours after the children received the Fluzone vaccine. This, according to vaccine apologists, is mere "coincidence."

It is well established that only 1% - 10% of vaccine side effects are ever reported to the FDA. This means that potentially thousands of children have suffered seizures due to this flu vaccine.

Not surprisingly, the maker of the vaccine claims there's no proof that the vaccine caused any seizures at all. "At this point no correlation between influenza vaccine and febrile seizures has been established," said Sanofi-Aventis. "Adverse events after vaccination may be causally related to vaccine or may be coincidental."

Both the drug maker and the FDA take the position that "vaccines are safe until proven dangerous." This is the opposite of what commonsense precaution would require: That vaccines should be proven safe before being injected into the bodies of children.

And yet, as NaturalNews has reported many times, flu vaccines are never tested in randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled studies because the flu industry is unwilling to subject vaccines to actual scientific scrutiny. All flu vaccines are approved by the FDA without adequate safety testing, and then side effects (seizures, etc.) are "monitored" by the FDA to see if anything goes wrong. As the side effects reports begin to pour in, the FDA simply downplays those reports and claims no "causal link has been established."

This is how America's children are turned into medical experiments by the vaccine industry.

Study: If you had swine flu, you now have super immunity

(NaturalNews) U.K. researchers have made an interesting discovery concerning swine flu. According to their report, which was published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, people who have had the H1N1 influenza virus and recovered now have a type of "super immunity" that is able to fend off many different flu viruses, they say.

Dr. Patrick Wilson and his team, composed of researchers from Emory University, Harvard University, Columbia University, and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), observed a group of nine patients that had developed swine flu during the 2009 pandemic to see how their bodies responded to the infection. They also noticed that, contrary to what occurs following the contraction of normal seasonal flu strains, swine flu patients generated a host of powerful antibodies capable of fighting off many other forms of flu.

"The surprise was that such a very different influenza strain, as opposed to the most common strains, could lead us to something so widely applicable," explained the report, which focused on developing a way to create a "universal" flu vaccine from these antibodies.

Researchers also observed that these powerful antibodies attached themselves to the surface of the virus through a "stem-like region," which they say varies little among flu strains. For this reason, scientists suspect that the unique antibodies can help protect the body from many different forms of flu.

The team is planing to conduct a follow-up study on people who were vaccinated against swine flu but did not get sick to see if they inherited the same boosted immunity. However, it is unclear from the report whether or not the recent study patients had been vaccinated against swine flu prior to contracting the illness.
