I'm hoping that the majority of people on this site will have the fortitude to do the research about H1N1. The pharmaceutical companies have so much to gain (billions!!!$$$$) if we all do as we're told...... This is from today on 'NaturalNews'- "The propaganda push for flu vaccines has reached a level of absurdity that's just begging to be made fun of. Today, a flu vaccine story appearing in Reuters claimed that injecting pregnant women with flu shots would increase the birth weight of their babies by half a pound. That same story claimed flu shots are so healthy for pregnant women that they also prevent premature births.
It even quotes a team of experts who claim that injecting an expectant mother with a flu shot would reduce the hospitalization of her infants, explaining: "Flu vaccine given to women during pregnancy is 85 percent effective in preventing hospitalization in their infants under 6 months of age."
This conclusion was derived from a study of pregnant women in Bangladesh, by the way, and it didn't even use randomized, placebo-controlled study protocols, meaning the conclusions of the study are highly unreliable (more vaccine quackery).
Speaking of bizarre claims, another Reuters report appearing this week claims that statin drugs prevent flu deaths!
How was this "science" conducted? There wasn't even a clinical trial at all. Researchers simply checked the medical records of people who died from seasonal flu infections and found that 3.2% of the patients who weren't taking statin drugs died from flu complications while only 2.1% of the patients who were taking statin drugs died. Since 2.1% is roughly 50% less than 3.2%, they leaped to the conclusion that "statin drugs prevent flu deaths by 50 percent!""
My Family Dr. is on fire about the propaganda surrounding H1N1. He pretty much agreed with your information but added that there is an ingredient called, Squimous? Not sure if I'm spelling it right. He said it was used in the Anthrax vaccine that created horrible problems for the Gulf War veterans. They are still fighting the affects of the vaccine. My Dr. said that our government is being terribly irresponsible allowing this ingredient to be in the vaccine. He told me as a pregnant woman, I have no business taking the vaccine and that I need to protect the life inside of me. He also said there is mercury in the vaccine as well, which is highly controversial because of possible autism triggers. Plus, if you're a vegan, like I am, there is egg in all flu vaccines anyway, so I never partake. Just wanted to add more information for people who are questioning getting the vaccine.
I am not getting the vaccine. I am very responsible when it comes to my health and I don't just accept all the information that is fed to me by doctors as truth. I went to see a doctor a couple of weeks ago to check on a cold I had. She told me that it was strep throat and wanted to give me antibiotics. She didn't do a swab, I didn't even have any strep throat symptoms, just swollen glands in my neck. I told her I didn't want the antibiotic and I would come back if it got worse. I took l-lysine (amino acid that will boost your body's antibodies to fight a virus), and did essential oil inhalations with lavendar and tea tree which are both excellent for fighting viruses and killing bacteria. Steam inhalations with essential oils are generally safe and don't produce side effects, but you should know what you're doing. I have studied aromatherapy, so I'm on the up and up. Now I also take a very small dose of oil of oregano (wild oregano essential oil from Turkey) suspended in an olive oil base to ward of any bugs. I believe in its power and I am positive that it will get me through this season of flus and colds. It is nature's antibitoic, anti-viral and anti-pain. It's potent! A little goes a long way. It's been studied minimally but like most natural products, real human based studies have not been conducted because it can't be regulated and money can't be made off of it, by big drug companies. It's an ancient remedy though and all you have to do is do a simple search and you will find testimonials that prove its effectiveness. For swine flu though, l-lysine and oil of oregano will be enough for me anyway. Check out www.earthclinic.com. Excellent natural health community.
