1. New flu shot is bad news for seniors

    'High-dose' flu shot is low in benefits, high in risk

    If you're my age, you know exactly where you were 50 years ago today and just what you were doing.

    I'm not going to make you relive those awful moments when President Kennedy was killed; there's plenty of that on TV today if you want it.

    I will point out that, half a century later, we remain the freest people on earth -- even if we're not as free as we were on Nov. 21, 1963. And I'm going to honor what's left of our freedom the only way I know how: by keeping up the fight for YOUR freedom.

    Watch out, seniors -- there's a new push to pressure you into a dangerous vaccine you don't want or need.

    It's the flu shot, of course, which is bad enough on its own. But this year, the Big Push is for a new version of the shot aimed at seniors -- a frightening high-dose vaccine with four times the antigens of the standard flu shot.

    Your doctor will claim a new study shows it's more effective in seniors than the regular flu shot -- and then he'll ask you to roll up your sleeve as he gets the needle ready.

    Keep your sleeve down and tell him where to stick that needle -- because the new study REALLY proves that both shots are 100 percent worthless.

    Despite the fearmongering, flu isn't the big threat it's been made out to be. Don't get a shot, and you probably won't get the flu -- because even in a "bad" year, only between 2 percent and 3 percent of the unvaccinated get sick (being government numbers, I'd bet even that's a wild exaggeration).

    The regular shot brings that number all the way down to... well... just under 2 percent, or 1.83 percent to be exact, according to the study. And the new high-dose shot brings it down to 1.43 percent.

    In other words, the absolute difference between the high-dose shot, the regular shot and no shot at all is roughly 1 percent, give or take.

    That's not a benefit. That's a statistical blip.

    You're actually about six times more likely to suffer one or more of the side effects of the high-dose shot than you are to get the flu -- and those side effects are almost flu anyway: fever, headache, pain, malaise and more.

    I'd say you're better off just taking your chances with the flu, but you don't even have to go that far because there are simple, safe and PROVEN ways to beat the flu without a shot.

    Start with good hygiene and a strong immune system powered by vitamin D -- because the sunshine vitamin alone is proven to be 800 percent more effective than the shot at preventing flu.

    It'll also help you avoid the common cold, something no shot in the world can do.

  2. The ugly truth about flu shots

    The failure of the flu shot

    You know the score on flu shots: They don't work, and they pack big risks to boot -- like the fact that they can actually cause you to get a more severe and even DEADLY strain of the flu, as I told you just a couple weeks back.

    But I'm sure you also know more than a few people who haven't seen the light on this yet -- including some folks who believe that anyone who doesn't roll up his sleeve for a flu shot is wearing a tinfoil hat.

    Well, it's time to show them you're wearing a thinking cap instead -- time to reveal the truth about flu shots in a way even a child could understand.

    It's a damning image created by my friends and colleagues at NorthStar Nutritionals that shows in a few dozen words just how woefully ineffective the shot REALLY is -- and this isn't something they concocted out of thin air.

    Nope... every piece of information in this graphic is based on government numbers and published mainstream research!

    For example, last year's "moderately effective" (according to the government) flu shot was found to have a 59 percent protection rate, which the CDC rounds up to 60 percent in its push for vaccinations.

    But that doesn't mean the shot protects 60 percent of the people who get it (which, in my book, isn't much to brag about anyway -- that's barely better than a coin toss).

    No, only 2.7 percent of those who DIDN'T get vaccinated got the flu last year -- and the 59 percent comes out of that.

    In other words, the REAL protection rate is a measly 1.5 percent.

    You can take a look at the graphic right here on the NorthStar Blog. Better yet, email it to all your friends and print it out and tack it to your bulletin board -- because you won't find a more effective way to the fight flu shot propaganda machine than this one simple image.

  7. Flu shot didn't work

    Remember all that talk of how important the flu shot is? I hope you didn't give in to the hype and get one -- because the shot didn't work at all in seniors.
  8. The ethics of the flu shot

    Flu shots don’t prevent transmission of flu – and a medical ethicist who claims you need a shot to protect those around you is full of serum.
