What you really need to know about the flu shot

What you really need to know about the flu shot

As many of you know, I have been giving health talks in the community at various schools, businesses and Mommy and Me classes about protecting yourself from the flu using whole food nutrition. With the pressure to vaccinate growing stronger each day, it is important to be educated about the inherent dangers of the flu vaccination and the toxic substances it contains. In the end of the day, we need to be our own advocates, and arming ourselves with education in the face of pressure and hysteria will help us remain healthy and vital through the coming season.

Ingredients in the Flu Shot

Mercury (thimerosal)
One of the most poisonous substances known. Has an affinity for the brain, gut, liver, bone marrow and kidneys. Minute amounts can cause nerve damage. Symptoms of mercury toxicity are similar to those of autism.

Formaldehyde (formalin)
Major component of embalming fluid; poisonous if ingested. Probable carcinogen;suspected gastrointestinal, liver, immune system, nerve, reproductive system and respiratory poison. Linked to leukemia, and brain, colon, sinus, nasopharynx and lymphatic cancers.

Gentamicin Sulfate & Polymyxin b (antibiotics) 
Allergic reactions can range from mild to life-threatening.*

Chicken embryos
The flu vaccine is made with fluids from chick embryos inoculated with specific type(s) of influenza virus. People who are allergic to these products (egg or chicken) or to any of the other ingredients in a vaccine can become seriously ill from the vaccination.

Sodium Phosphate
Symptoms may include vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, blood chemistry effects, heart disturbances and central nervous system effects. May cause inflammation and pain on prolonged contact, especially with moist skin.

Produced from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, demineralized cattle bones and pork skin. Allergic reactions have been reported.*

Polysorbate 80
Known to cause cancer in animals.

Neomycin Sulfate (antibiotic) 
Interferes with Vitamin B6 absorption. An error in the uptake of B6 can cause a rare form of epilepsy and mental retardation. Allergic reactions can be mild to life-threatening.*

Monosodium glutamate (msg/glutamate/glutamic acid)
Being studied for mutagenic, teratogenic (developmental malformation and monstrosities) and reproductive effects. A neurotoxin. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe.*

Sodium Deoxycholate
Promotes tumors and damages DNA.

Octoxynol-10 (triton® x-100)/ octoxynol-9 (polyethylene glycol-p-isooctylphenyl ether; octylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol)
Spermicide (kills sperm). Can cause chills confusion, dizziness, fever, lightheadedness,muscle aches, peeling of the skin. Causes severe eye irritation. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or in contact with skin. Toxicology not fully investigated. May contain traces of ethylene oxide or dioxane, which are probable human carcinogens.

Beta Propiolactone

Known to cause cancer. Suspected respiratory, gastrointestinal, liver, skin and sense organ poison.
