Why Didn’t Flu Shots Work?
The facts of these two great articles are from Dr Mercola’s website. They provide evidence concerning the new so called “vaccine against the swine flue”.
The ingredients, the dangers and many opinions from scientists…
“The United States is set to receive as many as 600 million doses of swine flu vaccine, enough for 300 million Americans. Health care workers are one of four “top priority” groups that stand to receive the swine flu vaccine first (the other three are pregnant women, children with chronic health conditions, and adults with chronic health conditions), under the premise that they will be more likely to be exposed to the virus and need to stay healthy to provide care.
Well, the fact that less than half of nearly 400 hospital workers questioned planned to accept the swine flu shot is very telling, though not surprising considering the majority of health care workers also refuse the seasonal flu shot. The most common reason given for refusal, and rightfully so, was potential side effects, followed by questions about the vaccine’s efficacy.
Even among a focus group of 85 people, very few said they would get vaccinated in the event of a pandemic. Again, many noted the risks involved in using newly developed vaccines that are rushed to market as a primary concern. Many also believed, correctly I might add, that they could protect themselves through their own behavior, including:
Staying away from crowded places and sick people
Eating well to maintain their immune system
These sentiments are right on, as it is the health of your immune system, which is primarily controlled by your lifestyle habits, that will keep you healthy during a flu outbreak. A vaccine is not the answer, and in fact can cause many other health problems.
Fortunately, this site, and many others seeking to shed light on this deceptive manipulation about the swine flu, are making a huge impact and people are refusing to believe the government propaganda.
Vaccine safety advocates everywhere are beginning to make a serious dent. According to a recent Fox News poll, the majority of people in the U.S. now believe the swine flu vaccine may be deadlier than the actual virus.
Why the Swine Flu Vaccine is a Disaster Waiting to Happen
Count yourself lucky that you still have a choice about whether or not to receive a swine flu vaccine … as I would no sooner choose to get this shot than I would run through a field full of landmines.
For starters, the swine flu vaccine contains dangerous additives such as mercury and squalene, which has been linked to the development of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Further, senior neurologists sent a confidential letter to the UK government warning that the swine flu vaccine has been linked to a deadly nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). GBS attacks the lining of your nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.
German lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has also come out about even more potential health risks associated with the swine flu vaccine. According to Dr. Wodarg, the swine flu vaccine contains animal cancer cells, and there’s no data indicating whether or not this may cause an allergic reaction when injected.
It also raises questions about the risk of contracting cancer.
Likewise, Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, believes the side effects of the vaccine can be far worse than the actual swine flu virus, which typically causes only mild symptoms, requiring just a few days in bed.
Swine Flu is Typically NOT Serious
Media reports sensationalizing the “death toll” that could come from the swine flu are just that: sensationalized.
As you may already know, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) consistently claim the seasonal flu kills about 36,000 Americans each year. After investigating that figure, it has been found to be a gross exaggeration based on flawed data compilation, but still, the swine flu has claimed FAR fewer lives than the seasonal flu in any given year, and no draconian measures have ever been taken to curtail the seasonal flu.
Dr. Wodarg told the German press that the widespread fear of the pandemic was an “orchestration,” stating:
“It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry. Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. On the contrary, if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak.”
Before you accept a vaccination, or allow your child to receive one, it’s always wise to examine the benefits versus the risks. In the case of swine flu, most often the symptoms are mild and resolve on their own. But no one yet knows what side effects could come from taking the swine flu vaccine.
Fortunately, for now the vaccine is still voluntary but there has been talk that it may become mandatory. For a great review of why mandatory vaccinations are unconstitutional and illegal, I recommend the book “Horrors of Vaccination Exposed and Illustrated; Petition to the President to Abolish Compulsory Vaccination in the Army and Navy,” by Charles M. Higgins.
Written in 1920, the book is now in the public domain and can be read and downloaded for free by clicking this link. It discusses the dangers of vaccinations, the cover-ups of vaccine deaths, and explains your constitutional rights and the medical trends that are stripping those rights away, and is every bit as relevant today as it was when it was first written.
If you prefer a hardcopy version, you can also purchase the book, as it has recently been republished.
Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed
According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall. [i]
This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk.
In Australia, where the winter season has begun, Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than regular seasonal flu. “Most people, including children, will experience very mild symptoms and recover without any medical intervention,” she said.[ii]
Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as many children in the coming year as regular influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six regular flu deaths seen among children in an average year in Australia.[iii]
“Cure the Disease, Kill the Patient”
Less than 100 children in the U.S. die each year from seasonal flu viruses.[iv] If we use Australia’s math, a very rough estimate would be another 100 children could potentially die of swine flu in the United States in the coming year.
If children are the first target group in the U.S. per Sebelius, that means we’re about to inject around 75 million children with a fast tracked vaccine containing novel adjuvants, including dangerous squalene, to prevent perhaps 100 deaths.
I’m not overlooking the tragedy of the loss of even one child to an illness like the H1N1 flu virus. But there can be no argument that unnecessary mass injection of millions of children with a vaccine containing an adjuvant known to cause a host of debilitating autoimmune diseases is a reckless, dangerous plan.
Why are Vaccinations Dangerous?
The presumed intent of a vaccination is to help you build immunity to potentially harmful organisms that cause illness and disease. However, your body’s immune system is already designed to do this in response to organisms which invade your body naturally.
Most disease-causing organisms enter your body through the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth, pulmonary system or your digestive tract – not through an injection.
These mucous membranes have their own immune system, called the IgA immune system. It is a different system from the one activated when a vaccine is injected into your body.
Your IgA immune system is your body’s first line of defense. Its job is to fight off invading organisms at their entry points, reducing or even eliminating the need for activation of your body’s immune system.
When a virus is injected into your body in a vaccine, and especially when combined with an immune adjuvant like squalene, your IgA immune system is bypassed and your body’s immune system kicks into high gear in response to the vaccination.
Injecting organisms into your body to provoke immunity is contrary to nature, and vaccination carries enormous potential to do serious damage to your health.
And as if Vaccines Weren’t Dangerous Enough on Their Own …
… imagine them turbocharged.
The main ingredient in a vaccine is either killed viruses or live ones that have been attenuated (weakened and made less harmful).
Flu vaccines can also contain a number of chemical toxins, including ethylene glycol (antifreeze), formaldehyde, phenol (carbolic acid) and even antibiotics like Neomycin and streptomycin.
In addition to the viruses and other additives, many vaccines also contain immune adjuvants like aluminum and squalene.
The purpose of an immune adjuvant added to a vaccine is to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to the vaccination. Adjuvants cause your immune system to overreact to the introduction of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.
Adjuvants are supposed to get the job done faster (but certainly not more safely), which reduces the amount of vaccine required per dose, and the number of doses given per individual.
Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns. Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of government and the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions from their vaccines.
Will There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?
The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.
The adjuvant? Squalene.
According to Meryl Nass, M.D., an authority on the anthrax vaccine,
“A novel feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster production of desired vaccine quantities.”[v]
Novartis’s proprietary squalene adjuvant for their H1N1 vaccine is MF59. Glaxo’s is ASO3. MF59 has yet to be approved by the FDA for use in any U.S. vaccine, despite its history of use in other countries.
Per Dr. Nass, there are only three vaccines in existence using an approved squalene adjuvant. None of the three are approved for use in the U.S.
What Squalene Does to Rats
Oil-based vaccination adjuvants like squalene have been proved to generate concentrated, unremitting immune responses over long periods of time.[vi]
A 2000 study published in the American Journal of Pathology demonstrated a single injection of the adjuvant squalene into rats triggered “chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation,” also known as rheumatoid arthritis.[vii]
The researchers concluded the study raised questions about the role of adjuvants in chronic inflammatory diseases.
What Squalene Does to Humans
Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.
The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.
Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.[viii]
Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene.[ix] MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets.[x]
The Department of Defense made every attempt to deny that squalene was indeed an added contaminant in the anthrax vaccine administered to Persian Gulf war military personnel – deployed and non-deployed – as well as participants in the more recent Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP).
However, the FDA discovered the presence of squalene in certain lots of AVIP product. A test was developed to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients, and a clear link was established between the contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who had been injected with the vaccine containing squalene.
A study conducted at Tulane Medical School and published in the February 2000 issue of Experimental Molecular Pathology included these stunning statistics:
“ … the substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%) GWS patients immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had antibodies to squalene.
In contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum antibodies to squalene.”[xi]
According to Dr. Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., a retired principle research scientist for the government of Australia:
“… this adjuvant [squalene] contributed to the cascade of reactions called “Gulf War Syndrome,” documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War.
The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, Sjorgren’s syndrome, chronic diarrhoea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.”[xii]
Post Vaccination Follow-Up Might as Well Be Non-Existent
There is virtually no science to support the safety of vaccine injections on your long-term health or the health of your children. Follow-up studies last on average about two weeks, and look only for glaring injuries and illnesses.
Autoimmune disorders like those seen in Gulf War Syndrome frequently take years to diagnose due to the vagueness of early symptoms. Complaints like headaches, fatigue and chronic aches and pains are symptoms of many different illnesses and diseases.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for vaccine purveyors and proponents to look seriously at the long-term health consequences of their vaccination campaigns.

[xii]Adverse Effects of Adjuvants in Vaccines, by Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., 2000
Some of them such cobalt, copper, manganese are required in small amounts but generally accumulation of Heavy Metals as a whole can lead to a number of serious illnesses because of their extremely toxic effects. There are some heavy metals which have no known vital or beneficial effect on organisms such as mercury , lead, cadmium, aluminum, arsenic etc.
There are hundreds of sources of these metals and if someone realize them he will assume that he cannot touch or eat a wide range of materials or foods correspondingly.
It’s not exactly like that of course. There are indeed sources which are extremely dangerous. Some of them are amalgam fillings (the black fillings in our teeth which contain mercury), batteries (contain mercury), plastic (bags etc), several pesticides (contain mercury), smoke or tobacco (contains nickel, aluminum), fishes such swordfish or tuna from the atlantic or seafood from coastal waters, birth control pills (elevate cooper levels in the body), pencils (contain lead), processed food which may contain each one of the above, several kinds of toothpastes, cosmetics even the polluted air we breath. And thousands more…
As for the sideffects there are much more and can vary. Very few of them are: Headache, allergies, dyslexia, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, numbness, blindness, hypothyroid, cardiovascular disease, immune suppression, mental problems, chronic fatigue, memory loss, liver dysfunction, schizophrenia, coordination loss, psychosis, weight loss, thymus, insomnia, constipation, sexual activity problems, cancer, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, hepatitis, anorexia, tremors, high cholesterol, damage to nerve cells, nerve fiber degeneration, dizziness, autism, migraines, high blood pressure, muscle pain, weakness, hyperactivity, stoke, arthritis even sudden infant death syndrome.
Heavy metals have a very low dissolve rate. All the above are a reality. A reality which can be dealt with according to our knowledge. Of course it’s not always up to us.
It is extremely unlikely for someone to be completely free of heavy metals. The most common I would say is mercury (a leak from amalgam feelings) but there are and more unique situations of toxic effects to nickel (even to coins).
1. Remove the soonest possible the amalgam feelings from your teeth (if you have any).If your dentist still uses it then change your dentist. Be sure that during the removal an air-extractor is used (because of the leak). It would be good to prefere a dental clinic which offers a modern equipment of discarding these toxic substances.
In cases which there is only one feeling or all the feelings are of the same quality and company, there is still danger since something metallic enters our mouth (spoons, forks etc) because the same results occur.
A leak can also take place while a breach is created due to chewing or the wrong shift of a tooth towards the feeling (eg a wisdom-tooth).
2. Seek for the right examination and find out the levels of heavy metals in your organism from a specialist. Avoid someone who will claim that “you are overreacting”. Inform your dentist with this: Safe Removal of Amalgam Fillings
Also inform your doctor how to diagnose heavy metals easily.

3. Definitely avoid wrong nutrition (fishes from the Atlantic Ocean such as swordfish and tuna) bad habbits such as smoking.
5. Watch very carefully whatever you buy. Prefer cosmetics, shampoos, perfumes, toothpastes from pharmacies or stores with healthy products. Don’t use pesticides!
Read also these excellent pages:
7. There is a plethora of herbs, homeopathic medicine and others (generally known as heavy metal chelators) which help in the detoxication of heavy metals such as selenium, B vitamins, Zinc etc.
Οι πηγές τους είναι εκατοντάδες και αν κανείς τις δει αναλυτικά μπορεί να θεωρήσει ότι δεν μπορεί να αγγίζει ή να τρώει σχεδόν τίποτα!
Δεν είναι βέβαια ακριβώς έτσι. Υπάρχουν πράγματι πηγές που είναι εξαιρετικά βλαβερές όπως τα μαύρα από αμάλγαμα σφραγίσματα στα δόντια μας (περιέχουν υδράργυρο), οι μπαταρίες (περιέχουν υδράργυρο εννοείται κατά τη διαρροή), διάφορα εντομοκτόνα (περιέχουν υδράργυρο), ο καπνός (περιέχει νικέλιο, αλουμίνιο), ειδικά είδη ψαριών του ατλαντικού όπως ο ξιφίας και ο τόνος (μπορεί να περιέχουν υδράργυρο), τα αντισυλληπτικά χάπια (ανεβάζουν τα επίπεδα χαλκού), τα μολύβια (περιέχουν μόλυβδο), το πλαστικό (σακούλες κλπ), το επεξεργασμένο φαγητό που μπορεί να περιέχει καθένα από τα παραπάνω, διαφόρων ειδών οδοντόπαστες ή καλλυντικά ακόμη και ο αέρας που αναπνέουμε λόγω της μόλυνσης. Ανάλογα βέβαια με το μέρος στο οποίο ζούμε.
Όσο για τις παρενέργειες είναι πολύ περισσότερες και μπορεί να ποικίλλουν. Πολύ λίγες από αυτές είναι: Πονοκέφαλος, αλλεργίες, δυσλεξία, κατάθλιψη, τύφλωση, υποθυρεοειδισμός, χρόνια κόπωση, απώλεια μνήμης, μουδιάσματα, δυσλειτουργία στο συκώτι, σχιζοφρένεια, επικύνδινη απώλεια βάρους, θυμός, καρκίνος, δυσκοιλιότητα, ηπατίτιδα, Πάρκινσον, ανοσοκαταστολή, απώλεια ισορροπίας, ψύχωση, αποσύνθεση μυϊκού ιστού, πρόωρο γήρας, ναυτία, μείωση της σεξουαλικής δραστηριότητας, δυσλειτουργία στην πέψη, ανορεξία, υψηλή χοληστερόλη, ζημιά σε νευρικα κύτταρα, ζάλη, μυοπάθεια, Σκλήρυνση Κατά Πλάκας, διαβήτης, αυτισμός, υπερκινητικότητα, ημικρανίες, πίεση, εγκεφαλικό, πόνος στα κόκαλα, αρθρίτιδα… έως και ξαφνικό θάνατο!
Τα βαρέα μέταλλα έχουν πολύ μικρό βαθμό διαλυτότητας.
Τα παραπάνω είναι μια πραγματικότητα. Έχοντας τη σωστή αντιμετώπιση όμως μπορούμε να την αντιμετωπίσουμε στο μέτρο πάντα που μας αναλογεί. Είναι από εξαιρετικά σπάνιο έως απίθανο κάποιος να μην έχει προσβληθεί περισσότερο ή λιγότερο από κάποιο τέτοιου είδους μέταλλο. Το πιο διαδεδομένο είναι ο υδράργυρος(διαρροή από τα σφραγίσματα στα δόντια) όμως υπάρχουν και πιο εξειδικευμένες περιπτώσεις τοξικών αντιδράσεων στο νικέλιο (ακόμα και στα νομίσματα).
1. Αφαιρέστε το συντομότερο τα μαύρα σφραγίσματα από τα δόντια. Αν ο γιατρός σας τα χρησιμοποιεί ακόμα αλάξτε οδοντίατρο. Να είστε σίγουροι κατά την αφαίρεση ότι χρησιμοποιείται απορροφητήρας και απομονωτήρας ενώ καλό είναι να υποστηρίξετε το ιατρείο που διαθέτει σύγχρονο εξοπλισμό αποβολής των τοξικών ουσιών. Προσοχή!!! Είναι ΛΑΘΟΣ ότι κατά τη διάρκεια που είναι στο στόμα μας τα σφραγίσματα δεν είναι επικύνδινα επειδή δεν υπάρχει διαρροή!!!
Όσοι ισχυρίζονται κάτι τέτοιο, ακόμα και γιατροί, ΔΕΝ ΓΝΩΡΙΖΟΥΝ!
Σε περίπτωση που υπάρχουν πολλά τέτοια σφραγίσματα (πάνω από ένα) τότε επειδή αυτά είναι συνήθως διαφορετικής περιεκτικότητας στο μέταλλο δημιουργούνται μέσα στο στόμα δυο σημεία με διαφορετικό δυναμικό. Διαφορετικό δυναμικό σημαίνει εξίσωσή του μέσω κίνησης φορτίων. Αυτό επιτυγχάνεται μέσω του σάλιου, που είναι αγώγιμο υλικό. Δημιουργείται λοιπόν ροή φορτίου άρα και μικρό ρεύμα. Έχουμε ουσιαστικά μια μπαταρία στο στόμα(!!!) και αποδεδειγμένα διαρροή λόγω της μετακίνησης των φορτίων.
Σε περίπτωση που υπάρχει ένα σφράγισμα υπάρχει κίνδυνος αφού κάτι μεταλλικό στο στόμα (όπως πιρούνι, κουτάλι κλπ) δημιουργεί τα ίδια αποτελέσματα.
Διαρροή μπορεί να υπάρξει και κατά τη δημιουργία ρήγματος λόγω της μάσησης ή της λάθος μετακίνησης κάποιου δοντιού προς τα συγκεκριμένα σημεία (πχ κάποιου φρονιμήτη).
2. Eπιδιώξτε την κατάλληλη εξέταση των επιπέδων των μετάλλων αυτών από ειδικό και όχι από κάποιον που δεν γνωρίζει πως θα ψάξει και σας συμβουλεύει “να μην είστε υπερβολικοί”.
3. Αποφύγετε τις λάθος τροφές (ψάρια ατλαντικού όπως ο ξιφίας, ο τόνος) τις κακές συνήθειες όπως το κάπνισμα.
4. Ανακυκλώστε προϊόντα που είναι ιδιαίτερα τοξικά και για το περιβάλλον (όπως οι μπαταρίες) – μην έρχεστε σε επαφή.
5. Δείτε προσεκτικά τι αγοράζετε. Προτιμάτε καλλυντικά, σαμπουάν, αρώματα, οδοντόπαστες από φαρμακεία και μαγαζιά με υγιεινά προϊόντα.
6. Υπαρχει πληθώρα βοτάνων, ομοιοπαθητικών και γενικότερα ουσιών που βοηθούν στην αποτοξίνωση από βαριά μέταλλα όπως το σελήνιο, η σειρά βιταμινών Β και πολλά άλλα.
Many facts come to surface lately concerning Vitamin D. Since summer is coming I thought I should remind you what’s important in my opinion concerning MS and Vitamin D.
1. If you have MS the best and SAFEST way to get your vitamin D is through Vitamin D supplements. Prefer to find it in a dry form tablet and DON’T USE any fish liver products because they may be contaminated by heavy metals. For Dr Klenner protocol we suggest Vitamin D3 (Cholecalsiferol) – 2000 – 5000IUs daily (dosage may be increased at doctor’s suggestion). Don’t listen to the RDAs spouted by the public health agencies. They are not nearly enough to keep you healthy. It is said that to prevent the flu, children need 2,000 IU a day of vitamin D, while adults need 5,000 IU to 10,000 IU
2. Exposure to sunlight causes vitamin D to be produced in your skin. But only a portion of the solar spectrum, known as ultraviolet (UVB), that has this effect. Other parts of the solar spectrum can have very different and even harmful effects. UVA can cause cancerous mutations, and can also break down the vitamin D formed in your skin after outdoor UVB exposure.
Exposure to sunlight for patients with MS IS NOT A WISE WAY TO GET YOUR VITAMIN D. If you are sure you can tolerate exposing to the sun don’t expose yourself more than 20 minutes be SURE the temperature is not very high and it’s early in the morning. Recent studies have also shown that after Vitamin D is synthesised in your skin it takes up to 48 hours to enter the bloodstream. This means that washing all over your body with soap will destroy your vitamin D after sun exposure.
Not many people are not going to bathe for two full day, however you really only need to use soap underneath your arms and your groin area, so this is not a major hygiene issue. You’ll just want to avoid soaping up the larger areas of your body that were exposed to the sun.
3. Use ONLY NATURAL SUNSCREENS with non toxic ingredients. Don’t forget that the main protection is not in the skin but INSIDE THE BODY. For example before you expose yourself to sunlight have 2 grams of Vitamin C. This is a very good antioxidant way to stay protected.
4. Flue: Vitamin D levels in your blood fall to their lowest point during flu seasons. If you have low vitamin D, you will not be protected by your body’s own antibiotics (antimicrobial peptides), which are released by vitamin D. This means that a person with a low vitamin D level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections.
Unfortunately, conventional medicine’s answer to preventing the flu is the flu shot. What they don’t tell you is that flu shots don’t work.
A recent study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu appeared to have no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons. And no studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly, yet this is one of the key groups to which they’re pushed
5. Don’t forget that recent studies show a strong correlation between Vitamin D and MS. It is essential for maintaining normal calcium and phosphorus metabolism. By promoting calcium absorption, vitamin D helps to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization.
