The cold season is upon us, and with it comes flu season as well. Making things worse is the global swine flu outbreak.
But should you really be scared of the swine flu virus? Should you get a swine flu vaccine?
According to a recent CNN report, the U.S. will acquire as much as 600 million doses of the swine flu vaccine, which is enough for around 300 million people, with the priority groups being pregnant women, children over six months of age with chronic illnesses, adults with chronic health conditions such as asthma and obesity, and health workers.
Has America forgotten about the 1976 swine flu outbreak? A mass vaccination program was ordered by the Ford government, which resulted in the deaths of 30 people who took an untested swine flu shot while hundreds were paralyzed due to a deadly nerve disease known as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), which attacks nerve linings to cause paralysis and impaired breathing, Dr. Joseph Mercola explains.
And by the way, NO swine flu pandemic materialized back then and the current versions of the swine flu vaccine will also not have any safety studies, Dr. Mercola points out.
The British government has sent a confidential letter (which was leaked to The Daily Mail) to senior neurologists asking them to be on alert for possible GBS cases due to the release of several versions of the swine flu vaccine.
It comes as no surprise that the letter refers to the use of the swine flu vaccine in the U.S. in 1976.
The swine flu vaccine, like other vaccines, is made by using the dead viruses or live ones that have been weakened to become less harmful.
Many vaccines also use immune adjuvants, which cause your immune system to overreact to the entry of the virus you’re being vaccinated against in your body.
At least two drug companies – Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline – are using squalene as the immune adjuvant in their versions of the swine flu shot.
Novartis’ is using a squalene adjuvant known as MF59, an unapproved adjuvant which was also an ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines for soldiers who served in the Gulf War. MF59 has been linked to the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), the devastating autoimmune disease suffered by Gulf War veterans who took the anthrax shots.
GWS symptoms due to squalene adjuvant include aphthous ulcer, arthritis, chronic diarrhea, fatigue and headaches, dizziness, fibromyalgia, memory loss, mood changes, multiple sclerosis, neuropsychiatric problems, rashes, skin lesions, photosensitive rashes and systemic lupus, among others.
Are you and your family willing to become lab rats for the swine flu vaccine?
Curiously, the swine flu vaccines will be released in the country at around the same time that the International Vaccine Conference will be held.
If you have any questions about the swine flu vaccine or want to learn how to beat swine flu, join Mercola in Reston, Virginia (which is near Washington, DC) on October 2-4 as he shares the best and latest anti-swine flu strategies live at the event.
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn everything you can about the vaccine controversy. It is relatively inexpensive to attend this highly-recommended event. There is only room for 1,000 so book your seat now because the seats are going quickly.
