Old Flu Jab Debunking Garners New Coverage
No Value in Any Influenza Vaccine: Cochrane Collaboration Study ... This study is damning of the entire pharmaceutical industry and its minions, the drug testing industry and the medical system that relies on and promotes them. Influenza vaccines produce no benefit and cause serious harm. – Gaia Health
Dominant Social Theme: Big Pharma looks out for us.
Free-Market Analysis: Gaia Health is reporting on a 2010 study published in the Cochrane Collaboration Library that concluded the so-called influenza vaccine is ineffective and that studies regarding flu vaccines generally are flawed.
The study cited harm from such vaccines that went unreported and found that studies showing benefits received more coverage in prestigious journals if they came from mainstream facilities. Further, "the only ones showing benefit were industry-funded."
While the study is from 2010 and seems to have received extensive coverage when it was released, we note that certain reports of the time seem to downplay ramifications or seem to ignore obvious conclusions.
Gaia Health's re-reporting sparked an additional 150-plus cites on Google, including one from Planet.Infowars.com (beta) initially posted at nomorefakenews.com. In "The Vaccine Empire Collapsed," Jon Rappoport writes:
You may not have heard the explosion, but it happened.
A review from The Cochrane Collaboration, a widely respected research-analysis team, went over all the evidence, and entered its conclusion:
In healthy adults, no flu vaccine delivers protection from the flu.
It doesn't protect against transmission of flu viruses from person to person, either.
So all the promotion and all the pandering and all the scare tactics and all the "expert medical opinion" and all the media coverage...useless, worthless, and irrelevant.
Billions of dollars of financed lies about flu vaccines were just that: lies.
It gets worse, because the entire theory about how and why vaccines work is sitting on a razor's edge, ready to fall into the abyss of discarded fairy tales.
In this Internet era, the debunkery of elite dominant themes proceeds apace. Older reports add their weight to new ones and patterns emerge about elite manipulation. What seemed possible once becomes an increasing probability. There is no off switch for what we call the Internet Reformation.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield, about whom we have written many times over several years, was vilified for suggesting that autism might be linked to diseases of the gut that were in turn caused by various kinds of vaccines.
Wakefield lost his medical license and was pilloried in thousands of mainstream articles and videos posted on the 'Net. But when we check the Internet for cites regarding Wakefield, we find over 5,000 of them, including a press conference held by Wakefield on October 4, 2012 La Crosse, WI.
Wakefield had arrived in La Crosse to confront one of his chief accusers, British journalist Brian Deer who, according to the Examiner, had arrived at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse to speak as part of a lecture series in Life Sciences.
We believe Deer has over the years distorted certain facts to put Dr. Wakefield in a bad light. He was confronted about some of his reporting according to the Examiner article as follows:
A statement that was read aloud to Deer asked, "Dr. Peter Fletcher, former Chief Scientific Officer in the UK, supports the position of Dr. Wakefield. What is your opinion on this?" Deer responded that Dr. Fletcher was never Chief Scientific Officer in the UK. Dr. Fletcher, however, is in fact the former Chief Scientific Officer for the Department of Health in the UK.
In other words, once again, Deer made a statement that fact-checking didn't bear out. The Examiner article also reported that Dr. Wakefield had wanted to speak formally at La Crosse but that the University hadn't allowed it. Here's an additional excerpt:
Dr. Andrew Wakefield also came to La Crosse on October 4, but was not allowed to speak at the University. Before Deer's talk, Wakefield held an outdoor press conference at Myrick Park, near the campus where he talked about the autism epidemic and how the medical community has failed to recognize or treat the overwhelming health problems that affect increasing numbers of children ...
When a local doctor brought up studies that show no link and claimed that Wakefield's work had never been duplicated, Wakefield disagreed and offered to debate him about it. Wakefield said that if you talk with doctors privately, they will admit that something is wrong and that they are concerned but, publicly, they know that talking about autism as an epidemic invites speculation on the cause and that leads to the controversial link to vaccines, something most doctors are not willing to do.
Dr. Wakefield would have presented his side but La Crosse would not allow him on campus to talk. Instead the students were given only Deer's controversial claims. In her opening remarks and before an audience of hundreds of UWL students, Professor of Immunology Bernadette Taylor said, "There is no debate... This University did not invite a debate on that issue." The University of WI-La Crosse's stance was clear.
Conclusion: In another era, the debate over the harmful effects of vaccines would have been squelched. But the Internet is like a large echo chamber. Even the littlest report may reverberate if it is credible and sensible. And unfortunately, the reports regarding vaccines' damages seem credible indeed.

"One concern is the incentive given to receive a flu shot. CVS is giving a 20% off shopping spree when you get a shot. People still believe getting a flu shot will prevent the flu, when at best it may shorten flu symptoms by a day or two."
No, it won't shorten it, but it might GIVE you the flu or *something* :(
because lots of toxic stuff in those shots, remember...
"I wonder what the incentive will be to propagate any new vaccines. Watch out!"
Their incentive--is the same: $$$(greed) and disease(populace). Yes, the incautious ought certainly to be wary--and look such seeming gift horses in the mouth!

Danny B, thank you for the link. I always enjoy your input and most links are very good. But I have to disagree on this one.
I took care of my parents the last 5 years or so of their life. Cooking their meals and taking it to them each day was one of my tasks. And they were typical of their peers. Their main staples were pinto beans, turnip and mustard greens and cornbread made from locally stone ground corn meal if they could get it. Or plain old meat and veggies, mostly home grown. Never drank much sugary drinks. A few cups of coffee a day, but mostly water.
But like most elderly, they were scared into getting that flu shot each year. They started to develop Alzheimers like symtoms, later than most though. It was much more than just the dementia that used to be common in the elderly. It was very strange. All their life they always feared becoming mentally unstable or being on life support before their passing. To them, that would be a fate worse than death. And when they did start behaving strange and looking at me like I was a stranger, I could see in their eyes, they knew they were living their worst fear. They gave up and did not live long afterwards.
AARP supported Obamacare. Nuff said on them. I blame the flu shots.

You are most welcome to post my comments as you see fit. Should you be interested to further your own education, I recommend reading the book 'World Without Cancer' by G. Edward Griffin (Click to view link). You will come to understand why Big Pharma has added those specific ingredients in the vaccines. Notice also that there are no 'organic', no 'MSG added', options when it comes to vaccines. All are provided to you by Big Pharma, and they have an agenda.
While on the site, do yourself a favour and get a copy of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island', also by Griffin. 'The Creature' will explain why today, sovereign nations are bankrupt. Like our healthcare, it is more than incompetence. Again, there is an agenda.
Unfortunately the picture is far worse than those 5 ingredients I mentioned might have one believe. I didn't even include the ingredient Squalene, an adjuvant in many vaccines. In an earlier post the 'Ol' Grey Ghost' shares his health issues since The Gulf War. The book entitled 'Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment that's Killing our Soldiers and Why GIs Are Only the First Victims', by Gary Marsumoto explains the link between Gulf War Syndrome and the adjuvant Squalene. Caveat Emptor!
If you want further bad news (and who doesn't:) about vaccines, look into the work of Dr. Sherri Tenpenny about 'Cell Line Technology'. This will curl your toes.
Thank you for your interest and comments.

@ Bluebird Re: Alzheimers.
There are indications that Alzheimer's is closely related to diabetes. It is even sometimes referred to as type III diabetes.

While serving in Uncle Sam's army, I started to have a great deal of muscle pain and, on occasion, my muscles would just refuse to work. It kept getting worse and I was sent to a number of specialist to see what the problem was.
I had some of the signs and symptoms of Mutiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, Guillen-Barre, Alzheimer's, and host of other neurological, muscular, and cognitive disorders but never enough of any individual disease to be diagnosed with only one. Some even thought I had "caught" Persian Gulf Syndrome from another affected service member.
In the end, the Army medical corps branded me with the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia Syndrome and I was medically retired. I am often asked if I can trace everything back to a singular incident at the beginning and I answer, "Yes, it began with a flu shot." I have refused to get a flu shot ever since...

"Even if vaccines do what they are supposed to the reality is that they are far too toxic because of the ingredients contained in them. Here is a partial list of some of the common ingredients (and their effects) found in various vaccines, including the influenza vaccines:

Wow. Brilliant, persuasive!
May I have permission to *repost* this elsewhere on the Internet--there are sites where your crystal-clear thinking would be invaluable to some [presently] *very* confused folks.
Thanks, in advance.

Even if vaccines do what they are supposed to the reality is that they are far too toxic because of the ingredients contained in them. Here is a partial list of some of the common ingredients (and their effects) found in various vaccines, including the influenza vaccines:
Note: Not all ingredients are found in all vaccines.
•Formaldehyde: The US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) allows no more than 0.016 ppm (parts per million) of formaldehyde in the air of new buildings (off-gassing). The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) states that formaldehyde is 'immediately dangerous to life and health at 20 ppm'. So how do our flu vaccines rate? They range from 25 to 100 mcg (micrograms) per dose which equates to 50 to 200 ppm per dose. The Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) describe formaldehyde as carcinogenic, mutagenic and possibly teratogenic.
•Gelatin: There is a strong relationship between systemic allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, and the presence of gelatin. Allergic cross reactions also occur to gelatin containing foods. Is it possible that the epidemic of allergies, asthma and food allergies in children may be related to gelatin in vaccines?
•MSG: Neurotoxin (excitotoxin).
•Polysorbate 80 (Tween 80): It can cause anaphylactic reactions and has been linked to infertility in animal studies (yes, it's in the Gardasil vaccine). It has also been used to facilitate the passage of drugs across the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB). Does Polysorbate 80 facilitate the passage of other ingredients in the vaccine, such as mercury, to cross the BBB?
•Thimerosal: Thimerosal (mercury) is a known neurotoxin (excitotoxin). Many multi-dose vaccines still contain mercury at a dose of 25 mcg per shot. Mercury is considered by toxicologists to be one of the most poisonous naturally occurring substances on the earth.
•Triton X-100 (Oxtoxynol-10): This chemical is an immunotoxin and a known mitochondrial disruptor. Interestingly, autism and other neurodegenerative diseases are now being labeled as mitochondrial disorders.
Remember: One can NEVER unvaccinate.

I think I've had the flu twice in my life and never do i get the flu vaccine. When I have gotten the flu, home remedy's really do work. The use of a Neti pot really cuts down on the time you have the flu too.. and a cold for that matter..

Isn't this great news! I think causing autism is just the tip of the iceberg on vacines. A similar ailment is affecting the elderly that years ago was unheard of. Alzheimers. Of course the elderly are the other group targeted by flu shots. And what about the huge number of children with cancer? I could go on and on with my suspicions, but as long as the "benefits" are shot down, perhaps vacines will crash and burn for good. It couldn't happen to a more deserving, evil scheme directed at mankind!

The problems with the MMR vaccination are well known too.
The whole vaccination scam is falling apart.
On a more practical note, there is a way to protect your child from vaccinations.
This info came from a doctor. When the doctor vaccinates your child in the leg, you hold tightly to the leg on both sides of the vaccination site. As soon as the doctor turns away, you twist in opposite directions with both hands. This torsional force forces the vaccine to be ejected from the leg muscle.
On a different but, related topic, the internet is making it MUCH more difficult to get away with a lie;

The Benghazi incident was supposed to be believable long enough to drag us into war. It didn't matter if it was proved to be untrue eventually. Like WMD in Iraq, this lie was supposed to hold up for at least a few months. I believe that it was "tweets" that provided the "undoing".
