Urgent alert: Seasonal flu shot raises risk of H1N1 swine flu

biohazardBy Mike Adams

Evidence is now emerging that people who receive the seasonal flu shot are at increased risk of contracting H1N1 swine flu. This is based on new research coming out of Canada. It means that the seasonal flu shot vaccines could be making the swine flu pandemic worse! 

(Natural News)  To hear it from the vaccine makers, their vaccines are perfectly safe and have no side effects. A person can receive an unlimited number of vaccines (10, 100 or even 1000) and have absolutely no ill effects, they claim. This is the quack science mythology upon which mass vaccination policies are currently based. But new evidence is emerging that people receiving a seasonal flu shot are made more susceptible to H1N1 swine flu as a result.

CBC News in Canada is now reporting disturbing findings you need to know about: “Four Canadian studies involved about 2,000 people, health officials told CBC News. Researchers found people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus.”

The story doesn’t cite the percentage increase in H1N1 virus risk, but it’s apparently enough to give pause to many doctors and infectious disease experts. “We don’t know with this year’s flu shot how it interacts with the pandemic flu shot, so it’s a worry,” said Dr. Michael Gardam in the CBC News article quoted below. He’s the director of infectious diseases prevention and control at the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion.

The upshot of all this is that Canadian health officials are now scratching their heads, wondering whether the seasonal flu vaccines will actually make the H1N1 pandemic worse!

It’s fascinating that this data is coming out of Canada, not the U.S. In the United States, the mainstream media has engaged in a virtual blackout of any information that questions the safety of vaccines, even while openly pushing outrageous lies about the swine flu vaccine (http://www.naturalnews.com/027055_s…).

Vaccines weaken your immune system

What this information reveals is further evidence that flu shots damage or weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to subsequent infections. Flu shots don’t even work to reduce your risk of getting the flu that they’re targeting! Most people who get the flu are the very same people who routinely receive flu shots.

This will hold true with H1N1 swine flu as well: The people getting the swine flu virus will be primarily those who routinely receive flu vaccinations.

You know why? Because a flu shot trains your immune system to be lazy. It exposes your immune technology to an artificially weakened virus, resulting in a lazy adaptive response from your immune technology. In much the same way that your leg muscles atrophy if you stop walking, your immune system begins to weaken if you don’t exercise it. And this leads to an increased risk of being unable to defend against future exposure to infectious disease, which is exactly what we’re seeing with this Canadian study.

Vaccines are the quackery of modern medicine. They not only don’t work to protect people from the diseases they target; they also increase the risk of being infected with other diseases. And that doesn’t even include the ways in which vaccine ingredients (adjuvants or preservatives) can cause permanent damage to your nervous system.

If vaccines strengthen the immune system (as vaccine makers imply), then why do people who take such vaccines end up at higher risk of future infections? The only rational explanation for this is that vaccines compromise immune function. And if that’s true, then why should anyone take them in the first place?

Vitamin D makes flu shot vaccines obsolete

We could do away with vaccines almost entirely by giving people vitamin D supplements instead. Seasonal flu is no match for healthy levels of vitamin D in the blood, and with the addition of a few immune-supporting nutrients (like vitamin C, zinc, and omega-3 oils), the days of people getting sick from the seasonal flu would be all but over.

People who have adequate levels of vitamin D in their blood rarely get sick from seasonal flu. The flu primarily strikes those who are nutritionally deficient in one or more key immune system nutrients.

But rather than teach patients how to correct those deficiencies, the entire industry of western medicine would much rather poke a hole in your arm, inject you with chemicals, charge you forty bucks and keep you in the dark about the nutrients that would have protected you better in the first place. That’s modern medicine for you: Consumer ignorance plus chemical intervention. It’s a great recipe for making money, but it’s a terrible recipe for protecting public health.

That’s why I say just say no to ALL vaccines. They harm you far more than they help, and they’re based on the most absurd medical quackery you can imagine. As is common throughout the pharmaceutical industry, most of the “evidence” supporting the efficacy of vaccines was fabricated by drug companies. There is absolutely no evidence anywhere in the world that says vaccines protect you from seasonal flu better than vitamin D and immune-boosting nutrients. There’s not even any trustworthy evidence that seasonal flu shots reduce your long-term risk of being infected with the flu.

But now there is evidence that receiving a seasonal flu shot may increase your risk of contracting H1N1 swine flu, and that’s something to carefully consider if you value your health (or your life).

    Not surprising, is it?

    Between healthcare reform and this, the pharmaceutical industry execs must be kickin’ up their heels.

  2. and we just got regular flu shots……habit I guess. At least we all take Vit D!!

  3. I’ve thought about this for a long time.
    I have chronic repiratory diseases (which i refuse to follow the medical establishment into having an acronym for every goddam twitch or lack of wood and calling it something ‘catchy’) and I’ve gotten flu shots every year for quite some time. Fortunately, I’ve not cotracted any infections sinc starting them as I believe one more would kill me. I believe your theory and think that the oly reason I don’t get the flu anymore is because i’ve built up my own immunity from the multitudes of infections I’ve fought off. To be truthful, I’m concerned about stopping the flu shots and taking any chances.
    I have no doubt that the pharmaceutical coompanies would take a 50/50 chance on a drug if there were enough money in it but in this case I just have to go on with the program. Their just as bad as the tobacco industry.

    • well, I support your decision, Peter, to take care of yourself the best way you deem fit. I trust you consult with experts YOU trust.

      I’m glad I don’t take shots anymore. Last two times were tetanus shots – for work injuries. But even that last one, I said, this is enough. I have enough tetanus to last me a lifetime now. Those are 10-year shots! and I had two within just a few years of each other.

      But these flu vaccines seem like a scam to me… and a dangerous one at that, based on all the material I’ve read about them.

      especially after they pulled the same exact scam back in 1976 – when only 1 person died of the swine flu but something like 300 died from the vaccine and hundreds of others got EB syndrome… some getting completely paralyzed.

      and then for these drug dealing scumbags to get Congress to pass a law making them immune from civil liability for using their product which they also got the government and media to tell everyone we need… well, that speaks volumes.

      I don’t trust Big Pharma. But, much in life is a risk and you gotta follow your instincts sometimes.

      • Rady,
        Since I wrote that response in Sept I got my yearly flu shot in the first week in Oct.
        The day after I got the shot I developed night sweats and nausea. After 3 days I had a fever of 103.5.
        I NEVER get fevers. My wife finally forced me to the dr. after the third day of fever. She had to pretty much haul me on her shoulder as I didn’t have the strength to walk on my own. I stayed in the hospital for two days, diagnosed with a staph infection. After I got home I developed an acute bronchitis attack which is just now breaking up.
        Now I question if I’ll ever get so much as a yearly flu shot again.
        I believe that the pharmaceutical companies have physicians as snowed as we are.
        Who are we supposed to trust when our lives are virtually on the line with every medical decision we make?

        • Peter – so glad you’ve recovered from this!

          hope you get some sun; and fresh vegies and fruit into you…

          I’ve been drinking massive amounts of superfood juice – it knocked out a cold that was coming on; and – much to my delight – when I got a cold sore it went away in just a few days, instead of the normal ballooning that used to last 7-10 days.

          I think much of Natural News website articles – especially the ones saying which foods are good for which ailments.

          Hell, Western medicine is getting a bad rap from several quarters – this latest swine flu vaccine scam really exposes what a fraud it has become.

  4. Aftrer reading the article by Mike Adams, I have made the decision to NOT get a seasonal flu shot or the H1N1 swine flu vaccination!! I will increase the dosage on the vitamin D that I take and will continue with the vit. C, omega 3 and add zinc to my daily supplements. I also take calcium, B-12 and garlic. What is a healthy level of vitamin D I should take on a daily basis? Thank you for all the wonderful info!!!

  5. More than 300,000 people will DIE because of the false info on coto2.

    Horrible/misleading advice.

    *DEFINITELY* get your flu shot this year!

    • There are different kinds of flu, and different kinds of vaccines- and YES some are dangerous!

      See: Swine Flu Pandemic-What’s wrong with the vaccines?


    • First of all, Alice, this article is from Mike Adams of Natural News.com, not COTO2. It is only reprint here. Secondly, it is not at all false information. If you have been paying any attention at all to coverage of this subject, you should be aware that the flu vaccine is more lethal than the flu itself. In fact, the flu has caused very few deaths and the so-called “pandemic” isn’t even an epidemic, let alone a pandemic. If you want to know what a pandemic is, look into the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919, which killed tens of millions of people around the world.

      This so-called “swine flu pandemic” has been completely manufactured by our own government. The flu itself is a an admitted laboratory creation, a cross between human, bird and swine flu strains that could not possibly have occurred in nature.

      As for the vaccine for the H1N1 virus, it has already caused deaths and if you think 300,000 deaths from the flu is bad, wait until they force everyone to get this “vaccine,” which is a death shot. Our government’s allegiance is not to the people, but to the international banking cartel that has ruled the world from behind the scenes for over a century. It is their stated goal to wipe out up to 90% of the human race and this phony “pandemic” and the bioweapon they’re calling a “vaccine” are the means to that end. If you don’t believe me, just start Googling everything I’ve said and find out for yourself. We have. That’s how we all know about it. Do you really think we’re just making this stuff up? For what purpose?

    • Alice, politely..and it will be hard to be polite!
      ! we do NOT have 300,000 readers..yet.
      we present the view that pharma media etc know and will not or are too controlled to tell you.
      By all means get the shot..we need less fools in the world
      Fools that blindly trust the powers that be(corrupt to the core) are how the world has gotten to be the mess it is!
      We all choose to be educated and share our info

    • Megan 'Verb' Kargher

      perhaps you would like your personal vaccine supplied by baxter
      after all you are not a ferret right alice

  6. > I have enough tetanus to last me a lifetime now.
    > Those are 10-year shots! and I had two within just
    > a few years of each other.

    If your entire lifetime is 20 years?

    Beside you can’t “stock up” on tetanus shots.
    (Get many of them… and then never need 1 the rest of your life.)

    Do you just make up false info????

    By spreading false info… you are causing COUNTLESS people to not get their tetanus shots as needed.


    • The tetanus vaccine is not unduly risky- at least for adults. Refusing all vaccines is probably foolhardy, but refusing the new Swine Flu vaccines which have been rushed to market and use dangerous additives, is a reasonable choice.

    • there is only fact in my comment, Alice. I made conclusions for myself, which you may disagree with (and which, like Laudyms said, may be foolhardy), but I didn’t make anything up.

      And, in fact, I am at liberty to change my beliefs if new information requires such a change.

    Mefloquine may have severe and permanent adverse side-effects. It is known to cause severe depression, anxiety, paranoia, aggression, nightmares, insomnia, seizures, birth defects, peripheral motor-sensory neuropathy,[2] vestibular (balance) damage and central nervous system problems. For a complete list of adverse physical and psychological effects — including suicidal ideation — see the most recent product information. Central nervous system events occur in up to 25% of people taking Lariam, such as dizziness, headache, insomnia, and vivid dreams.[citation needed] In 2002 the word “suicide” was added to the official product label, though proof of causation has not been established. Since 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA has required that patients be screened before mefloquine is prescribed. The latest Consumer Medication Guide to Lariam has more complete information.

    Amiodarone [Wyeth] – a class action lawsuit was filed in New Jersey that accuses the drug makers of promoting amiodarone for common heart ailments in an effort to boost profit. patients and their families accuse the drug makers of a nearly 20-year scheme to push doctors to prescribe the drug for unapproved uses while concealing and downplaying the risks by collusion with the FDA

    Paxil [Glaxo] According to FDA data, at least 110 American kids have killed themselves while taking antidepressants during the past decade. Controversial antidepressant drug Paxil and suicide links and risks have been making headlines as mounting pressure from critics and Congress has been put on the FDA to publicly disclose reports associating antidepressant medications to increased risk of suicide among children. The FDA withheld an internal finding showing Paxil and suicide occurs twice as often as kids on sugar pills, as well as other antidepressant medications, at the start of 2004.

    In June 2004, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer filed a lawsuit accusing GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) of burying several studies that indicated Paxil was ineffective in the treatment of children and adolescents and may increase suicidal thoughts. The lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court, also accuses Glaxo officials of misrepresenting data on the prescribing of Paxil to children. He was subsequently ousted by Glaxo/FBI set up sting to rid him of pursuing his primary objective.

    Approximately 70,000 people die in the US alone each year due to medications and suicide by people on medications.

    One in one thousand will die from the vaccine. That’s about 30,500 in the US alone. Alice must work for Baxter.

  8. coto crew rocks. all of you. but Patrick – that was phenomenal on such short notice.

  9. This from Linn Cohen-Cole… a speech by Dr. Shiv Chopra from Sept. 12, 2009 in Montreal, Canada… English starts at about 1:12 of the first of six videos:

  10. Odds are Patrick, Alice won’t reply to your excellent rebuttal to her advert for Big Pharma’s death shot.

    just in case Alice is out of wonderland again, thought Doc mercola, AND yet another Honest Doctors info may make her day..red pill alice?

  12. http://educate-yourself.org/cn/poisoningamerica05oct09.shtml

    Alice, come out from the mirror:-)
    if you didn’t like our page, you will have heaps of fun with this one.

  13. For the serious information seekers, This! is a very interesting page.

    . The findings in this report indicate that, as during previous influenza pandemics, bacterial pneumonia is contributing to deaths associated with pandemic H1N1 and that histopathologic methods can be used to identify bacterial coinfections after death.

    the irritating thing is it IS a push to add pnuemonia vaccines to the loooong list…
    I have this wonder about..how many had been given pnuemonia vacc?
    the golden staph etc strains are also noteworthy mentions.

    why??? in a BIG way!
    were NO Female and or pregnant , and aborted autopsies used?
    IF? they were really worth their pay and title…wouldn,t you be doing autopsy and Correcting the cause of death?? and seeing just how and why? the other 50% were affected
    ( the female over 50% of the human race! no small part)
    Rather reminds me about the Patient who goes in for surgery, and dies of staph, it’s called “complications of/after surgery” Misleading cause of Death is listed as the initial , and not the possibly true killer, the aquired infection!!

    The other mention of needing a dead patient! to be able to be sure of test results..
    now that…is NOT encouraging news.
    Obesity, diabetes,asthma? no info..
    also notice,
    In this day and age, how come so few, seemed to have any medical history available by now? incomplete..

    They can run spy programs to work out our colour preference for our undies on Yahoo etc for chrissake!
    yet they cannot?
    correlate a data base of stats on under 5,000 worldwide?
    WTF are they doing towards REAL tracking and comprehensive investigating, if this small number is not used fast! how many more useless billions shall we spend?
    and most enraging is some idiot somewhere in a lab, accidentally..hmm? or Intentionally brewed this nasty little pile of slop up.
    what pschycopathy, or greed, enables such twisted rationale????????
    medicare or Soc sec no is a clear tracking method, medical visit and scripts, very informing, are listed for reason of payment…It is how they track serial doctor shoppers for ephedrine and other Prescribed drug abuse.

  14. I forgot to add this snippet…the full text should be read.

    The findings in this report are subject to at least three limitations. First, not all potential bacterial pathogens (e.g., Legionella species) were evaluated. Second, the analysis of patient characteristics was based on limited patient information. Because medical records and death certificates generally were not available, no conclusion could be drawn about whether the cause of death was influenza, bacterial infection, or both. Third, because assessments of bacterial coinfections were conducted at autopsy, inadequate sampling, collection of specimens from unaffected portions of the lung, or prolonged illness and treatment before death might have prevented identification of bacteria.

    out F/N rageous! and criminal!
    add Gardasil that has had many issues combined with ??whatever vaccine they wanted to trial on children????
    this is truly truly as bad as what Nazis did to their captives.
    Arkansas will or should be a pariah worldwide!
    Personal, parental and Nuremberg, and religious ethics all disregarded?
    Stick this on twitter and all over the place! Shame the evil bastards!!!!

  16. On September 10, 2009 I received a seasonal flu shot.. On septembrt 11th my Parkinson’s disease was exacerbated to the extent that it went from molderate to changing my life relative to mobility. It has been a difficult period for me.
