Are Flu Shots Safe?

Everyone is lining up for the flu shot vaccine, but are they considering the consequences beyond the needle sting? The truth may surprise you.



Sadly this seemingly gross exaggeration is spot on. The typical flu shot contains 25 micrograms of mercury, some dead influenza viruses, formaldehyde, Triton X100 detergent, ethelyne glycol (antifreeze). I don't know about you but last I checked formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, anti freeze in a tiny dose can kill a dog and mercury is something we were told never to play with as a kid.

What may also surprise you is that the shot has a dose of mercury considered toxic to anyone under 275lbs and this is being given to pregnant women and children. No studies have shown that this toxin is safe, yet somehow the companies making these vaccinations are getting away with it.

Patsy Hamilton writes "It is believed that some people cannot shed mercury from their systems and it builds up in their brains causing nerve and brain damage. In addition, some people are allergic to mercury and thimerosal and can experience serious allergic reaction as flu vaccine side effects. Some states have banned mercury from flu shot ingredients intended for use in children and pregnant women. But, while health advocates have petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to ban thimerosal from flu shot ingredients, nothing has been done at this time. Many manufacturers continue to add thimerosal to their flu shot ingredients."

This recent study even showed that the influenza vaccine wasn't even effective at eliminating the flu in children. Also noteworthy is that there hasn't been any noted decrease in flu related death since the vaccination has been used.

Our foods are labeled with a list of ingredients, why aren't we informed about what is in our vaccinations?
