The Flu Vaccine Is It Really Safe and Effective?
What Is In A Flu Vaccine?
Formaldehyde: a known cancer causing agent Thimerosal: (a mercury derivitive) used as a preservative in the vaccine. Can cause brain injury and autoimmune disease Also this vaccine is propagated on Chicken embryo cells.
The problem with using animal cells is that during serial passage of the virus thru the animal cells, animal RNA and DNA can be transferred from one host to another and undetected animal viruses may also slip past quality control testing procedures as in 1955 thru 1961 with SV40 which stands for Simian Virus#40 (meaning the 40th virus found) which has oncogenic properties (cancer causing) In 1995 a team of Swiss scientist discovered a enzyme, reverse transcriptase (Keep in mind reverse transcriptase copies RNA and DNA and is associated with retroviruses) in MMR vaccines and some influenza vaccines that had been propagated in chicken embryo .
How Effective is the Vaccine?
Flu Vaccine production is a big guessing game. Every year the CDC has to try and predict what virus will infect people in the U.S. the following year. This is something like looking thru a crystal ball. So how accurate is this crystal ball?
In 1992-93 the isolated influenza samples for the predominant virus (influenza A (H3N2) virus) were not similar to that in the vaccine (MMWR 42 752-55)
In 1994-95 influenza season the CDC reported that 43% of isolated influenza samples for the predominant virus were not similar to the vaccine. The same goes for another type A virus (HINI) and the influenza B they also were not similar to that in the vaccine. (MMWR 9/8/95 )
In a 1993 Dutch article on a nursing home for the elderly 50% of the vaccinated population caught the illness compared to the 48% unvaccinated.
Vaccine efficiency in elderly is usually never higher then 52-67%. Other doctors and studies declare it even lower showing a efficiancy rates of 20% or less and if you keep in mind mistakes in production, transport ,and storage this may even cause a further decrease in effectiveness.
How Safe are Flu Vaccines?
We have all heard of the Swine flu vaccine disaster of 1976 that left over 565 cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome paralysis, as well as other neurological problems and many unexplained deaths among recently vaccinated elderly.
Although vaccine manufacturers try to say todays vaccines do not carry the same risk of Guillian Barre Syndrome as with the Swine Flu vaccine, many cases are still occurring after flu vaccines as well as other neurological problems. In the early 80s Dr. John Seal of the national Institute of allergy and Infectious Disease was heard stating that "We have to go on the basis that any and all flu vaccines are capable of causing Guillain- Barre."
Flu vaccine product inserts do state that individuals who have a history of Guillian-Barre syndrome have a substantially greater likelihood of subsequently developing GBS.
In 1970 Rosenberg, G.A. in a article in the New England Journal of Medicine wrote about meningoencephalitis being reported as a result of influenza vaccines. He then goes on to describe a case of a patient in which meningoencephalitis developed 12 days after vaccination with a purified influenza vaccine.
In a article published in the British Medical journal in 1971, Wells warns that influenza vaccines may be complicated by a neurological illness. He also presents cases along with a summary of seven other cases.
Other reactions that have been associated with past influenza vaccines are Fever , Malaise,Myalgia,hives,angiodema, allergic asthma, systemic anaphylaxis,Guillain-Barre Syndrome,encephalopathy, optic neuritis,brachial plexus neuropathy, many diffrent types of paralysis,myletitis polyneuritis(including cases of polyradiculitis, polyradiculomyelitis, and polyganglioradiculitis),Ataxia, respiratory infections,gastro-intestianl problems,eye problems , Allergic thrombocytopenia, disturbed blood pressure,collapse etc.
Pregnant Woman and Flu Vaccine
Even though many doctors recommend flu vaccines for their pregnant patients how safe is it really?
Vaccine product inserts state that it is unknown if influenza vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman nor have their been any studies on animal reproduction so they do not know if it can cause impairment to fertility.
