What's the REAL Story About the Flu Vaccine?
We analyze memes here at The Daily Bell, the dominant social themes an evident and obvious power elite purvey to ensure that society keeps progressing toward what seems to be a goal of world government.
A good example of a subdominant social theme is this article posted at MarketWatch, entitled, "What would wipe out the flu?" It's a subdominant social theme because it is part of a larger dominant theme that might be condensed into the phrase, "Modern Western medicine can cure anything and you need to obey the governments purveying it."
In this editorial I want to examine why the flu vaccine is probably not a great idea and why the mainstream media keeps on fraudulently peddling this meme. Because it IS fraudulent. There are plenty of reputable studies that show the "flu jab" is not only worthless but apparently harmful.
But articles like this one keep circulating because the powers-that-be want to maintain the idea in the public mind that vaccinations are usually necessary – and more and more of them. Here's an excerpt from the article.
What would wipe out the flu? Experts say more shots could sharply decrease outbreaks. Despite a decades-long public healthy campaign, just over 40% of Americans get the flu shots — a number that hasn't budged in years. But research suggests that if twice as many people get them annually, the flu could be all but eradicated.
Doctors and scientists say an 80% vaccination rate is the magic number for flu immunizations, that if reached could significantly reduce outbreaks – or even wipe out the virus entirely. Studies have shown that when the flu vaccination rate in a community hits or surpasses that threshold, flu cases have dropped off sharply or disappeared altogether.
That hope for more widespread vaccinations is driving National Influenza Vaccination Week, which begins Monday and is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control. "When you get high levels of immunity, there's less transmission because the bug can't find the next susceptible person," says the CDC's Dr. Carolyn Bridges.
Health professionals, as a result, are increasingly encouraging people – especially the young and healthy – to get flu shots not just for the individual benefit of being less likely to get sick, but as an altruistic gesture to benefit society as a whole. See Investing in a better flu shot
"If enough people get vaccinated, you also protect the community," says William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist and chair of the Vanderbilt Medical Center's department of preventive medicine in Nashville, Tenn. "I always like to put in a very personal way: You don't want to bring influenza home to your grandparents or to a young child."
The 80% effect is noteworthy: Studies of nursing home residents have shown that reaching that vaccination rate threshold significantly decreases flu outbreaks even in such a susceptible population. "If it were higher than that, it has even more of an effect," Schaffner says.
This little excerpt has many "tags" in it that we can identify as contributing to an elite meme ... especially the necessity for public health officials to push vaccines on the widest number of people for their own good. We need to remember that assertions about efficacy are not necessarily reality.
Many vaccines, for instance, do not seem to go through double blind testing, most often because the science is said to be supposedly settled. Apparently, the initial polio vaccines, for instance, were not subject to double blind tests. In time it was discovered use of the live virus vaccine was, in fact, causing polio in a segment of the population not otherwise exposed. Even when double blind tests are applied, the results may be fudged. See here:
In other cases, we find that when double blind tests ARE conducted, the results do not support the idea that vaccines in general are as effective, or safe, as they are made out to be. This is especially noteworthy when it comes to the MarketWatch article we're analyzing today.
If you read the article in its entirety, you find that no study is presented to support the contention that flu shots suppress or otherwise provide the internal disease-fighting resources to resist the flu. Here's an excerpt from an article that appeared recently at Natural News and, in fact, tells us exactly the opposite.
University study: Flu vaccine effectiveness claims are wildly exaggerated ... It is once again the season of influenza, and the push is on to "get your flu shot." But does this hallmark of Western medicine really provide the protection health experts claim it does? A recent study out of the University of Minnesota (UM) suggests not, having found that the two groups most at risk from developing serious complications from the flu, seniors and children, derive little or no benefit from getting flu shots.
Michael Osterholm from the UM Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy analyzed more than 12,000 peer-reviewed studies, documents, transcripts, and notes dating back to the 1930s, and found that there was very little solid evidence that the flu shot provides any real protection for most people. As it turns out, those at highest risk of suffering from the flu are least likely to derive any benefit from flu shots, especially because flu strains are constantly morphing and becoming more virulent.
"We found that current influenza vaccine protection is substantially lower than for most routine recommended vaccines and is suboptimal," said Osterholm about the findings. "We believe the current influenza vaccine will continue to have a role in reducing influenza morbidity until more effective interventions are available, but we can no longer accept the status quo regarding vaccine research and development."
You see? How do we integrate these two positions? The MarketWatch article tells us that "experts" believe flu jabs are important in preserving our health. The research shows otherwise.
In fact, given the presence of mercury and other hazardous substances often contained in the formulas, vaccines might be considered dangerous. This has led to the controversy over whether or not a cocktail of vaccines actually promotes or causes autism, the syndrome in which a child's ability to communicate and socially interact shuts down and behavior is affected.
We've written about this for nearly half a decade now, ever since the Internet began to make the truth about vaccines available. There are many stories circulating on the Internet from parents who state that their children received a cocktail of vaccines and then quickly began to exhibit autistic behavior. Nonetheless, this firsthand testimony is essentially disregarded by medical "experts" who continue to deny the obvious.
This is surely a hallmark of elite memes purveyed in the elite media. The statements, disproved or not, are repeated over and over again as if mere repetition can somehow define the truth. These dominant social themes – and subdominant social themes – are then disseminated via think tanks, universities and the mainstream media, all of which are seemingly controlled at various choke points by those who are involved, one way or another, in the expansion of world government.
The MarketWatch article concludes as follows: "If those marketing messages aren't enough, some flu shot advocates may resort to scare tactics: 'If we have lots of people who are unvaccinated, that should put a chill through our spine because they're hazardous not just to ourselves but to their neighbors.' "
This is the old "herd immunity" argument that makes vaccines such a helpful tool for those who want to convince us of the eminence and effectiveness of big government healthcare.
In this case we have a "treatment" that needs to be distributed as widely as possible "to save lives." This is a perfect meme for those who spread the message that government force is not only acceptable but necessary.
In fact, the next step when it comes to vaccines will be for the state to mandate their use. Of course, this is already a de facto reality, as in many countries children are required to receive vaccines before they are allowed to attend school.
It would certainly seem that some vaccines are effective in some cases. But the evidence is that they are certainly not proven effective in ALL cases because vaccines do not always seem to be subject to rigorous research protocols. Additionally, a minority of the population suffers from horrible effects of vaccines, including autism.
You won't find any of this in the MarketWatch article. The studies referred to are never cited. There IS a recent study that shows flu jabs are not effective. And there is other evidence that vaccines generally are dangerous to a minority population and that for the most part they are not rigorously tested before dissemination.
I should add I am not coming out as a supporter of "double blind" tests. As rigorous as these may be, they cannot control for all factors in real life. Many drugs are subject to double blind tests and later withdrawn anyway because of vicious additional health impacts. (Although these are often referred to as "side effects," in reality they are simply additional effects that have not been publicized.)
The entire paradigm of Western medical health in which plants are turned into chemicals for patent purposes needs to be reexamined and publicly questioned. This is happening, in fact, whether or not the establishment participates. In the West, many millions, even tens of millions, seek treatments and healthcare support that circumvents mainstream allopathic medicine. For instance, acupuncture, homeopathy and naturopathy are becoming increasingly popular.
The important story when it comes to this MarketWatch article is the feedback that followed. I checked today and yesterday and could hardly find a positive note in response to the story. In this era of what we call the Internet Reformation, elite memes are continually challenged and there is little that can be done to stop the information already disseminated. That's the REAL story.

Agree something is fishy about this vaccination culture. Look into the MMR and Chicken pox vaccination for kids. Did you know it is sourced from aborted fetus cells. 1) This is hidden and not disclosed. 2) Simple logic says DNA from a fetus has unique access to the DNA of the child injected and no study has been done to measure this risk. 3) Two promenate doctors point out that this is potentially the cause for Autism (google it). 4) The change points for autism spikes (there are two main ones) exactly corrilate to the release of these vaccinations. Autism only became comin in remote areas in Africa after they started to get these vaccination.
There is a death culture afoot: Abortion, injecting kids with aborted cells, Obamacare death panals, the entire liberal agenda which is anti-life if you look into it... We live in dangerous times.

Great article! As a person who is on Medicare, I can tell you that health insurance companies, and doctors, are really pushing the flu vaccine big time to seniors. I haven't had a shot in 15 years and I haven't had the flu. It's criminal the way the flu shot is forced on the population, particularly seniors. Just this week, I had a heated conversation with my primary care doctor's office, because they insist on calling me, repeatedly, to remind me to get a flu shot. The message is automated, and so, of course, I had to call them back, to tell them to stop calling me. They tried to insist that I was on their automated list for phone calls and there was no way they could take me off the list. They lectured me on how they are just looking out for my well being, to which I stated that I didn't need them looking out for me.
I like your comment, "This is the old "herd immunity" argument that makes vaccines such a helpful tool for those who want to convince us of the eminence and effectiveness of big government healthcare."

Damn; too early and did not spell check. if want a clean version of previous early morning ramblings, just let me know.
Final thought on flu article by Mr. Wile. Having worked with WHO and other such agencies, they push government or big program health care.
Changing the paradigm, changing the approach from institutional care to more focus on self-care, doctoring yourself care, allowing people/individuals to try alternative approaches, as he suggested toward the end of his article, getting government out of the nanny role over health care, is a major step forward toward improved health.
Downside is, the shadow group seeking eugenics solutions to supposed over population do not, will not and are not supporting this paradigm, not now, not ever. They have other goals in mind, selfish hidden agendas that, since conqueroring and ruling classes since way-back-when, they see themselves as demigods, and the rest as fodder, resources for their benefit.

Objective article on prevailing paradigm for use of flu vacinne; thanks.
Troubling to me is how dominant this flu theme is, not only in USA, but as part of aid programs for use in Africa. Similarly, the current AID treatment for Africa is a managed care model costly $25,000 per patient annually, which is absolutely rediculous, but done. Meanwhile, addressing AIDS should be a $100 issue by addressing the underlying pathogenics behind the majority of illness/diseases codified or defined as AIDS.
Back to flu shots. Studies have come out and proven that that taking of vitamin D3 in doses 3-5,oooIUs daily has greater effacacy than any fly shot, that coupling this with broad spectrum mineral supplementation would literally eliminate flu outbreaks or reduce their spreading dynamics. Why? Strengthened immune system capacity of individuals to identify and destroy any bacteria or virus, in the main, encountered. But this 'program' reduces the cost of illness and disease to a 'few dollars' of self treatment, prevention and higher quality of life versus the prevailing model of visit doctor, get worthless drugs that treat symptoms and ignore the nutrtional component necessary to good health and healthy living.
For example, it has been shown that of the 600-900 major illnesses and diseases out there that they are not 'genetic' but due to nutritional deficiencies, accumulating over months, even years and manifesting as X, Y, and Z or allergies, arthritis, or ringing ears; or worse, MS, cancer or heart disease. Truth? most if not all versions of the six identifed illnesses just named and the majority of childhood and adult on-set illness and disease can be treated, reversed and prevented for the individual in the future by acknowledging that a strong body based on the full range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids taken daily, acknowledging that even a 'sound' diet can not longer provide this full spectrum, would do more to eliminate flus and other illness than all the drugs in the world, sold at too high prices.
For example, an individual could send me a single requested sheet of their current health status, based on inquires I would request, and in the vast majority of cases, I could develop a simple strategy for treatment, reversing and then future prevention of X, Y, and Z for that particular individual and the self evident truth and validity of this would be shown clear within as little as two week, and progressively over 30, 60 and 90 days. Then a program for continued healthy living designed and, this is key, habituated, to allow them to live a higher quality of life, with levels of energy and well being than heretofore experienced.
BUT this, implies, this requires that the individual awaken to this doctor yourself mentality, take responsibility and no long depend on a nutritional ignorant doctor or medical system, but integrate the prevailing system as but one part of a three or four legged stool for taking responsibility for their own health.
The flu is but D3 away to 'bye-bye.' AIDS could be brought under control with the introduction of selenium into the daily lives of any group in Africa and some additional immune system supports, at 1/1000th of the managed care model now used around Africa. MS is curable, most cancers addressable, heart related health factors definitely nutritinally resolvable. And don't forget physician-cased deaths is not the #1 cause of human death today. Hell, even altheimer's Disease is physician-caused, sadly too, as the Bell curve of Baby Boomers head into their 60's and do not realize, are not told that it is addressable in the main, demonstrable reversal in the condition in weeks, with a targeted nutritional program to do this!
Strange and disappointingly ignorant, if not sinister model of mis-guided health models being used out there treating illness and disease as if it takes 'a village' of heath professionals, huge institutions and tons of money to help you live as a victim of bad health.
And don't get me started on cut, burn and drug model used in cancer, that any oncologist surveued would NOT do if THEY get cancer. Or on the spreading of MRSA in hospitals and causing large numbers of deaths and MRSA issues in schools. And one little herb, known to the special few, 500mgs kills MRSA literally once swallowed, but your doctor, your health care practicianer does not have a clue.
Flu? Something that is out there and can be addressed individually, resulting in a public health miracle, but not using flu shots and worthless programs for lying and misguiding people as if they are too dumb to know better.

I have not had a flu shot since 1987, and I have not had the flu since 1987. Really.
And not only did I get the flu back in 1987, within 3 days of getting the shot, but it was accompanied by an epic strep throat and very high fever that sent me to the hospital.
To avoid winter bugs I follow just a couple of ironclad rules, much like people traveling abroad use to avoid intestinal bugs (No water, no ice, no raw veggies, etc). These are:
1) Always wash hands when I get home, first thing in the door, no matter what.
2) Always wash hands before eating. Do not eat with my hands, esp if I have not washed them.
3) Do not touch my mouth, eyes or nose with unwashed hands.
4) AVoid crowded areas and airplanes to the extent possible.
Influenza is transmitted mostly by hand, not by fomites (sneezing) so keep this in mind. Common cold viruses
are more likely to be transmitted in a sneeze.
Additionally, I have read of studies that claim an immuno-strengthening effect of influenza--IF you survive it, and most people do.
As far as the social question of mandatory vaccination goes, i.e. forcing people to be vaccinated against their will, if the influenza vaccine really is protective, then those who are vaccinated have nothing to fear from the unvaccinated. So, there is no real reason to mass vaccinate anyone.
Also-herd immunity cannot be conceptually applied to influenza because presently the annual vaccines are based on antigenic components of the viral membrane that change every year. There is no "permanent epitope" or antigenic component of the influenza virus that is stable enough to be used as a vaccine antigen. If there was influenza would have been eradicated years ago. At the molecular level, each year's new influenza virus is an antigenically new creation.
Indeed, naturally occurring influenza has been demonstrated many times to arise in rural settings in east Asia, where domestic water fowl, pigs and human beings live in close proximity. In intermediate animal hosts the virus is benign.
The science of the origin and transmission of influenza is quite well established. If the annual flu shot ritual is examined in a rational light, according to what we actually know about this virus, then the 'shot' itself seems to have less and less to actually do with influenza, and more and more to do with other agendas... ..

As a person in his mid-80s (age), I suppose that I am "elderly"; that might classify me as being at risk. However, I don't recall getting flu since I was in my early 50s (age). Nor do I recall getting any flu vaccine for that long. My feeling is that catching flu and having flu vaccine injected somewhat go together.
Of course, I haven't ingested much sugar or ice water for about thirty years, so that may have kept my good bugs alive to fight the flu bugs. In any event, it seems to me that the "western" medical/health" system is primarily a money making activity for those who benefit from the "snake oil" cures which that system promotes.
One might think that sincere "health" professionals (and there are some) would be more concerned with getting their friends and neighbors out of the sickness culture and into a culture of personal health. But as is observed, there's a herd mentality at work here.

Report: Vioxx linked to thousands of deaths
Newspaper cites government study on recalled pain drug
Merck & Co.'s Vioxx has been used by millions of people around the world for treatment of arthritis and other painful conditions.
Click to view link staff and news service reports
Merck & Co.'s arthritis drug Vioxx may have led to more than 27,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths before it was pulled from the market last week, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing an unreleased study by government regulators.
Last week, Merck abruptly recalled Vioxx, an arthritis treatment and one of the company's top-selling drugs, after an internal study showed that patients taking the drug were more likely to suffer a cardiac event than those taking a placebo.
The Journal's report, citing a study by the Food and Drug Administration, said that from Vioxx's approval in 1999 through 2003, an estimated 27,785 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths would have been avoided if Celebrex, a competing drug made by Pfizer Inc., had been used instead of Vioxx.
The article said the figures were projections based on findings from an analysis of a database of patients of Kaiser Permanente, a large health-maintenance organization.
No comment was immediately available from the FDA or Merck.
Analysts said Merck is now confronting the possibility of multiple lawsuits in connection with the recall.
The FDA study has not been released to the public, but a copy has been requested by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who is investigating how the FDA handles safety concerns, the Journal said.
The study drew on data from about 1.4 million Kaiser patients, who had taken one of the painkillers called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. That included 40,405 patients who had taken Celebrex and 26,748 who had taken Vioxx, the Journal said.
A Merck spokesman told the Journal that the company could not comment on the full study, 'as we have not yet had the opportunity to review it."
Other pain relievers may cause problems
At the same time, scientists and European regulators are now questioning the safety of other pain relievers like Vioxx, saying these medications also might raise the risk of heart attack and stroke.
On Wednesday, the European Medicines Agency in London announced it would review drugs similar to Vioxx. And researchers writing in the New England Journal of Medicine voiced their concerns as well with such drugs as Pfizer's popular Celebrex.
The medical journal published two reports on the issue Wednesday on the Internet, ahead of their planned publication, because of their public health importance.
Studies done five years ago when Celebrex and Vioxx were approved suggest that the same mechanism that inhibits inflammation and makes the drugs easier on the stomach than traditional painkillers also blocks a substance that prevents heart problems, according to Dr. Garret FitzGerald, a University of Pennsylvania cardiologist who led the studies, which were designed by him but funded by the drug companies.
'I believe this is a class effect,' meaning that the problem also applies to Celebrex and Pfizer's newer, similar drug, Bextra, which remain on the market.
He called on the FDA to change its advice to patients and doctors to reflect the new safety concerns. In a separate report also released by the medical journal, Dr. Eric Topol of the Cleveland Clinic chastises the FDA for not requiring Merck to do studies investigating heart problems with Vioxx when hints of them first appeared years ago.
Pfizer's medical director, Dr. Gail Cawkwell, insisted that its drugs are safe.
'The data for Celebrex is robust and exceeds, in the length of patients in studies and in the size of studies, the data Vioxx has,' she said.
Spare the stomach, risk the heart?
She called FitzGerald's contention 'an interesting theory,' but said, 'there is no evidence' of increased risk of heart problems among the 75 million Americans who have taken Celebrex. Long-term studies are not yet available on Bextra, which was approved in 2001.
FDA officials did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.
When Merck voluntarily withdrew Vioxx, FDA officials said heart problems were unique to that drug and that the mechanism underlying them wasn't known.
But FitzGerald and colleagues published two studies in 1999 and another in 2001 suggesting that by selectively blocking one of the two substances called prostaglandins that lead to inflammation, these so-called COX-2 inhibitors were sparing the stomach at the expense of the heart.
'There's a good prostaglandin and a bad prostaglandin as far as the heart is concerned,' he explained.
Suppressing both, as older painkillers like aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDS do, helps the heart. But shutting down just the 'good' one raises the risk of high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries and clotting, he reports.
The studies will be published in the Oct. 21 print edition of the medical journal.

Good article. The 'flu-shot's is in fact harmful, and in fact does not live up to the propaganda that touts its efficasy.
After years of my own research, and more than a decade of having to deal with my severe psoriatic arthritis, and IBS [chronic auto-immune disorder] it is my humble opinion that, the ony people that think western medicine gets top-ratings are people profiting from the drug-industry and people that have never had to deal with being very ill.
You do not need a flu-shot. For those of you that worry about getting the flu, try vitamin D3 therapy. As always, buy "Whole-Food-Vitamins" as they contain all the necessary constituents and not simply an isolated-extract.
