The inactivated Flu shot only prevents the flu in just 1.5% of the population - page 3

Ok, I didn't want to hijack the other flu shot thread so...... I came across this meta-analysis from the Lancet, referred to by the NaturalNews website. NaturalNews link here: And the... Read More

    I agree! I often ask my patients if they understand ways they can strengthen their immune systems. Many of them actually do. I'm sure many of them do not read or understand the package inserts though.
    Are you agreeing with your own post? I'm sorry, I'm a little confused there.

    I thought I was replying to olddragger. I'll figure this site out eventually. I'm trying to figure out bookmarking a thread right now:0/

    speaking of percentages and statistics, you have a 100% chance of having mercury injected into your body with a flu shot.

    Sorry, you are 100% wrong.
    Only multi dose vials contain Thimerosal, as a perservative. Single dose packaging does not contain any preservative.

    Research shows that other vaccine adjuvants such as formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide and polysorbate 80 can affect endocrine and nervous systems. There's so much to read in the flu vaccine pkg insert. I'll bet most MDs aren't aware. Need to see more independent studies along with the pharmaceutical corp. studies.

    There are tons of independent studies and yes MDs, NP, and PAs are aware of vaccine ingredients. Why not post some peer-reveiwed scientific studies showing all these potential problems from vaccine additives. CDC - General Questions and Answers about Adjuvants - Vaccine Safety

    "Myth #2: The flu shot contains dangerous ingredients, such as mercury, formaldehyde and antifreeze. (Not exactly, and the ingredients aren’t dangerous.)


    Single dose-shots of the flu vaccine and the flu vaccine nasal sprays do not contain any mercury compounds. The multi-dose flu shot does contain a preservative called thimerosal, which breaks down into 49% ethylmercury and used to prevent bacterial contamination of the vaccine container. Ethylmercury, as I’ve discussed before, is processed differently by the body than methylmercury, the neurotoxin that can build up in the body and is found in fish. (Keep in mind the difference a letter can make in chemistry: methanol is anti-freeze while ethanol is a Chardonnay.) Ethylmercury is made of larger molecules that cannot enter the brain andexits the body within a week.
    There is no danger in receiving a vaccine with thimerosal – they’re given all over the world and it’s been extensively studied, even for cumulative effects on children over several years. And, keep in mind, if you’re just one of those paranoid types, you can easily request and get a flu shot without the preservative.
    Formaldehyde is used in safely small amounts in several flu vaccines (Fluarix, FluLaval, Agriflu and Fluzone) to inactivate the virus so it cannot cause disease. It is not in other influenza vaccines (Afluria, FluMist and Fluvirin). Formaldehyde also occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables even is produced by the human body for a variety of functions, including making amino acids. The amounts of formaldehyde in these vaccines vary from 5 g per dose (Fluarix) to 25 g per dose (FluLaval) to 100 g per dose (Fluzone). For reference, a pear contains about 39 to 60 mg/kg of formaldehyde (1000g = 1mg, so pears contains approximately 39,000 to 60,000 g/kg.) A typical pear weighs about 220g, or 0.22 kg. That means a single pear would contain 0.22 times the 39 to 60 mg/kg, or 8.6 to 13.2 mg (8600 to 13200 g). (Meanwhile, a single dried shiitake mushroom contains 100-406 mg/kg of formaldehyde.)
    The claim of antifreeze being in vaccines comes from the use of octylphenol ethoxylate (Triton X-100) (in Fluzone) or octoxynol-10 (Triton X-100) (in Fluarix) used to inactivate those viruses or to purify other vaccines. Polyethylene glycol by itself is one component of antifreeze but is not antifreeze itself, just as water is a component of antifreeze. But these are not the same as polyethylene glycol and involve the use of Triton X-100 as a splitting agent, which has been shown to be safe. Learn more about specific components of flu vaccines here, but remember, again that ONE LETTER can make a huge difference in what you’re talking about."
