One of my intelligent and well-informed regular readers asked my opinion on a recent health piece on the swine flu vaccine. The article is written by Dr. Russel Blaylock, a prominent neurosurgeon and associate editor of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. His view: The upcoming swine flu vaccine might be more dangerous than the flu itself.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how I feel about the flu vaccine in general: um, useless. Aside from the fact that everyone has had the flu, 99.9999999% survive it, get well and get on with their lives, there is the simple little issue that the data doesn’t support its widespread use. I’ve posted study after study showing the flu vaccines worthlessness. Why will the swine flu vaccine be any different? I even went so far as to point out that this past flu season had the lowest use of flu vaccine in years, and guess what…flu cases were down! Frickin’ duh! Thank goodness people are waking up.
What the heck is the difference with swine flu? Should we be more scared? The government, WHO, and media are certainly trying to freak us out. It’s not like I think there is a conspiracy–I’m definitely not a conspiracy theorist–but there is some vested interest in drumming up a scare. I talk at length about this in my book, The Six Keys to Optimal Health. Think about it: Can governments actually do nothing about an illness outbreak? No, they are ultimately responsible for their people. So that makes sense to me. Will the media ignore it? C’mon–that racket of power and mind manipulation wouldn’t exist without sensationalism. Pharmaceutical companies? Cha-ching. Mainstream medical profession? No new diseases, no new business.
There is no evidence that the swine flu is any worse than the regular flu. Why panic? Doesn’t mean you need the vaccine. And if, in fact, the material that is combined with the vaccine (called the adjuvant), is toxic, then obviously it’s more than useless, it’s dangerous. According to Dr. Blaylock, the adjuvant in the new swine flu vaccine is squalene. When injected, squalene, the doctor states, can trigger autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis (MS). He goes on to point out that squalene is also strongly linked to Gulf War Syndrome, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), transverse myelitis (a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s inner lining), optic neuritis with blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).
So what do I think? Hmm…I don’t know about all that stuff; but it really doesn’t matter to me if it’s filled with ambosia and nectar, I’m not going to take it, and I’m not going to give it to my children. If they start mandating it for schoolchildren–bye, bye school–I’ll homeschool my kids. I’m not giving my family any flu shot crap, period. There David, that’s my opinion.
