Vaccines

  1. Young and old alike can skip the flu shot

    Another flu shot myth crumbles

    I've been called a heartless crank (and worse) for trying to stand between you and your flu shots -- especially for my position that babies and seniors in particular should avoid the shot at all costs.

    Well, looks like I'm not the only "heartless crank" around anymore -- because a new editorial in Scientific American looks at the evidence for flu shots in the very young and very old and finds exactly what I've been saying all along: There is no evidence!

    One study often quoted finds that vaccinated seniors are 44 percent less likely to die during flu season. That sounds great -- until you see the part not quoted so often... because the study also found that vaccinated seniors are 61 percent MORE likely to die before flu season even starts.

    Another major study found absolutely no reduction in flu deaths among seniors in Italy as vaccination rates there climbed in the 1980s.

    And if the evidence is thin for seniors, it's positively invisible for babies -- with a major review earlier this year finding that flu shots in the under-twos are no better than placebos.

    The Scientific American article isn't perfect... they still seem to think everyone else might get at least some small benefit. But it's a lot smaller that most people realize -- with one major review last year confirming that the absolute reduction in flu risk is just 1.5 percent.

    That's it.

    You're better off getting back to basics, because good hygiene and a strong immune system will beat the flu every time -- and they come with none of the risks of the vaccine.

  2. Flu shots forced on healthcare workers

    Doctors and nurses told to get flu shots -- or get lost

    Don't want a flu shot? Tough luck -- especially if you're a doctor or nurse in Colorado.

    Across the country, healthcare workers are being told to get vaccinated or get another job. In Colorado, right now, some doctors and nurses are being threatened with pink slips if they don't get the shot by the end of the year.

    There's a law in the "Centennial State" that requires 60 percent of healthcare workers to get flu shots this year -- and it's supposed to be 100 percent within a couple of years.

    But hospitals aren't even waiting for that law to kick in. They're pushing for 100 percent compliance right now -- and threatening to sack anyone who doesn't play ball.

    Trouble is, despite the laws -- and despite the hospital rules -- many doctors and nurses are still refusing to get the shot. And why would they? If the public at large knew what these people know, no one would ever get vaccinated.

    Flu shots are useless at best and dangerous at worst. Studies have shown they do little to cut the risk of flu, especially in healthy people. Meanwhile, flu shots over the years have been responsible for everything from nerve disorders to narcolepsy.

    Healthcare workers know this better than anyone since they not only read the studies, but also see the real-world results every day. So they're not getting the shot -- and you shouldn't either.

    But forget all that.

    Even if flu shots were absolutely perfect, no one should be forced into getting them. Last I checked, we were still a free country -- on paper anyway.

    In reality, looks like we're anything but.

    Folks, the time to act is now. If you don't stand up for the rights of healthcare workers to NOT get vaccinated, you may lose the right yourself in the not-too-distant future.

  3. Safe Gardasil? Don't bet on it!

    A new study claims the HPV vaccine Gardasil is safe -- but it ignores thousands of reports of serious problems on file with the feds.
  4. How the flu shot can give you the flu

    For years, docs have claimed that flu shots don't cause flu -- but a new study finds that people who were vaccinated had a higher risk of swine flu.
  5. New flu panic over seals

    Forget swine flu and bird flu -- get ready for seal flu. The inside scoop on the next big flu panic.
  6. Virginia is for mandates

    Parents have spoken loud and clear: They don't want dangerous HPV vaccinations forced on their daughters. Even the most ardent pro-vaccine moms and dads have been refusing Merck's Gardasil shot, and I say good for them.
  7. Last desperate push for flu shots

    If you need the flu shot to avoid the flu, how come no one's getting sick?
  8. New risks linked to swine flu vaccine

    Remember how "safe" the untested and rushed-to-market swine flu shot was supposed to be? Turns out not so much -- just as I told you from day one.
  9. Don't trust new Gardasil 'study'

    You'd have to be on the Merck payroll to believe the company's dangerous HPV vaccine is actually safe. And sure enough, the latest study to make that claim was funded by none other than Merck itself.
  10. Get ready for FORCED vaccine experiments!

    Kiss whatever freedom you have left goodbye, folks -- because when it comes to vaccines, you're getting yours... or else!
