Increase your flu risk -- get vaccinated!

Fan of the flu? Well first have your head examined, and then roll up your sleeve and get yourself a flu shot -- because the vaccine can deliver, and deliver big.

I'm not just talking about the notorious "flu-like" side effects that often follow the shot -- side effects that can be as bad as (or worse than) the flu itself.

No, I'm talking about rare and deadly flu, even pneumonia -- because new research proves beyond all doubt that the very flu shot your own doctor is almost certainly pushing on you right now could damage your immune response and expose you to more powerful and more dangerous strains of the flu virus.

Researchers gave pigs a dose of the H1N2 vaccine -- a seasonal flu vaccine -- then exposed them to the H1N1 "swine flu" virus.

The pigs didn't just get sick. Some went on to develop pneumonia, and some even suffered lung damage, and this wasn't ordinary bad luck at work.

Blood tests found the H1N2 shot altered the immune response.

The antibodies that are supposed to attack H1N2 invaders do almost the opposite to the H1N1 -- and in some ways actually helped them to replicate, creating what the researchers call vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease.

In plain talk, I'd call that Flu-Shot Flu -- a flu CAUSED by the shot itself.

The study was on pigs, but we don't need more research to know this is true in humans as well.

We already have it.

During the "pig panic" of 2009-2010, people conned into seasonal flu shots were up to two and a half times more likely to get swine flu -- and when they did get it, they got sicker from it.

You can read more about that fiasco right here.

Throw in the damning fact that the vaccine offers little to no protection against the regular flu, and you'd really have to be certifiable to roll up your sleeve for this shot.

Fortunately, there are much safer and far more effective ways to make sure you don't get the flu, and Douglass Report readers got all the details in this month's issue.
