Have You Had Your Flu Shot?

Summary: Are immunizations and vaccines really the best way to avoid sickness?

A recent conversation with a lady whose son went into convulsions after receiving a vaccination inspired me to make our readers aware of some of the possible dangers of immunization. If nothing else, I would encourage each one to do their own research so that they can use common sense and make informed choices for their families.

At this time of the year, we hear the following statement a lot:
“Have you had your flu shot?”

Flu vaccine was originally marketed to the elderly and those with weakened immune systems, but today is being marketed to everyone. These injections are prepared from the fluids of chicken embryos that are inoculated with the specific type of influenza virus that health officials believe are the most prevalent. Sources indicate that their effectiveness in preventing influenza ranges from 30 to 40%, probably because of the fact that by the time the flu shot is finally administered, the influenza virus has already changed to a form completely unaffected by the vaccine. According to government statistics and testimonies by Dr. Jonas Salk, developer of the original polio vaccine, more polio has been caused in the past four decades by the live vaccine than by the naturally-occurring polio virus.

Flu shots can contain anything from formaldehyde, thimerosol, aluminum, dangerous microorganisms, and ethylene glycol. One of the most toxic materials found on this earth is radioactive plutonium, the second is mercury. Thimerosol is made by taking elemental mercury and converting it to ethyl mercury. When aluminum is added to the vaccine it causes the mercury to be 10,000 times more toxic than the elemental mercury. Mercury is used to sterilize many immunizations.

Formaldehyde is used in inoculations as a disinfectant and preservative. It is a colorless, toxic water-soluble gas also used in embalming fluid. Evidence suggests that those who receive the injection could be contagious for weeks, since they have the live flu virus in their bodies, and could potentially spread germs to the general public. It would appear then, that one of the best ways to avoid the flu is to stay away from people who have recently received a flu shot as well as those who are sick.

A pet owner recently told me that his dog has cancer. He was told that many of the cancers in pets result from the vaccinations that pets receive today. A recent report indicated that the number one killer disease of young children is cancer (in particular leukemia). Could this also be a result of the many vaccines they receive?

On the day of birth, babies are commonly given a hepatitis B shot, which contains 12 micrograms (mcg) of mercury. At four months of age, they are given DPT and HiB injections, which contain a total of 50 mcg of mercury. At six months, they are given hepatitis B and polio immunizations, which contain 62.5 mcg of mercury. At 15 months, needles containing another 50 mcg of mercury are given. Since the blood-brain barrier is not completely developed in infants, the brain and spinal cord take a tremendous beating.i

The above indicates the amount of mercury only, but what about all the other things commonly found in inoculations? On his website, www.mercola.com, Dr. Joseph Mercola lists the following fillers found in these serums(in addition to the viral and bacterial RNA or DNA):

Aluminum hydroxide; aluminum phosphate; ammonium sulfate, amphotericdin B; animal tissues – pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg; calf (bovine) serum; betapropiolactone; fetal bovine serum; formaldehyde; formalin; gelatin; glycerol; human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue); hydrolyzed gelatin; monosodium glutamate (MSG); neomycin; neomycin sulfate; phenol red indicator; phenoxyethanol (antifreeze); potassium diphosphate; potassium monophosphate; ploymyxin B; polysorbate 20; polysorbate 80; procin (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein; residual MRC5 proteins; sorbitol; sucrose; thierosal (mercury); tri-(n)butylphosphate; VERO cells: a continuous line of monkey kidney cells; and washed red-blood cells from sheep.ii

You will find that all immunizations contain substances deemed unclean and unfit for human consumption as per the health laws contained in the Bible. In addition, many of these poisons attack the immune system and weaken it rather than enabling the bodily defenses to ward off the diseases. Our God-given natural immune system is actually a self-healing system. We need to give this system the best chance to work in our favor! Following the natural laws of health will be our biggest protector against many of these diseases.

On July 10, 2006, Health Canada approved the vaccination Gardasil, supposedly the first and only medication designed to prevent cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers, as well as pre-cancerous lesions at these sites and genital warts caused by human papilloma virus types 11, 16 and 18. One hundred thousand doses of the vaccination have been distributed across the country since they became available in pharmacies. This followed a recommendation in January by the Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization that all females between the ages of nine and 13 be vaccinated and that women between the ages of 14 and 26 also be inoculated, even if they are already sexually active.

There seems to be a real push to get this vaccination out but at the same time, a real lack of any scientific evidence to support it. There isn’t any spectacular epidemic happening. Could it be possible that, like many times prior, the pharmaceutical company has launched another money-making venture?

Most people are unaware that the word "pharmaceutical" is derived from the Greek work "pharakeia", which means magic, sorcery, and witchcraft. The symbols of the pharmaceutical companies are extremely meaningful. For example, the winged staff with a serpent wrapped around a pole is the ancient magic wand of the pagan god Hermes…Pharmaceutical companies use their drugs, vaccines, spells and potions to contaminate the blood of an unsuspecting public.iii

Space does not allow us to elaborate on all the potentially life-threatening results of vaccinations. They cause an imbalance in humoral and cellular immunity and violate the body’s God-given way of handling disease through the mucous membranes and white blood cells. Vaccines are powerful drugs. Immunity is something we receive naturally, not from a vaccine. The choice is yours.
