Next Generation GMO Influenza Vaccine Coming Soon

It might seem as if I’ve been on an anti-flu-shot rant for the past few posts. There’s a lot to learn about this government-led public-health push to give everyone flu shots, and I’m not even going to go into who profits from it. I’m more concerned with our health: yours, mine, and our collective wellbeing. Knowledge is power.

A few more unpleasant tidbits to share with you about the influenza vaccine before I leave you to make your own decisions.

Would you like a worm virus and some caterpillar DNA with that flu shot?caterpillar dna in influenza vaccine

According to the Alliance for Natural Health: “The government is also eyeing cutting-edge vaccine research. A new generation of vaccines will be using viral DNA to quickly churn out key proteins to elicit a protective immune response. Protein Sciences of Meriden, CT, has already applied to the FDA for approval to sell a vaccine made by genetically engineering flu genes into a worm virus, which then infects cells from caterpillar ovaries to produce the necessary proteins to make vaccine.”

If I learned anything from hearing Jeffrey Smith of the Institute for Reliable Technology speak at the seminal Seeds of Doubt Conference in Boulder last summer and watching his terrifying documentary, Genetic Roulette (free through October 17th!), about the Genetically Modified foods at every level of our food supply chain, it’s that DNA does not cross species in nature. Humans do not mate with insects and combine DNA in the natural world. Only in the GMO laboratories of companies like Monsanto does it sound like a good idea to extract active DNA from a bug and insert it into something humans or other mammals will eat, or in the case of the flu shot, inject at the behest of their government.

Smith points out that while scientists know how to extract a strand of DNA, insert it into something else to manifest the desired trait, they don’t know how to turn it off afterward. When this alien DNA is ingested, it can merge with the bacteria in your stomach and digestive tract and continue to replicate. In rats, we’re seeing scary tumors from GMO feed. In mice fed GMO feed we see increasing rates of infertility with each successive generation, until the final generation is completely infertile and becomes truly the final generation.

The flu shot is causing more adverse effects each year.

The Center for Disease Control’s Seasonal Flu Summary for the 2012-2013 flu season warns that last year there was an increase in febrile seizures in children under two after being given the influenza vaccination. Still, the document continues to say there will be no change in vaccine recommendations.

You can’t sue a vaccine manufacturer.

The U.S. government created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, a “vaccine court,” to field complaints against vaccine manufacturers due to adverse effects. This court shields vaccine manufacturers from having to make big, public payouts to people harmed by vaccines by collecting a surcharge from every vaccine sold and using this fund to make payouts .

Mercury in the Flu Shot

While concerned parents have lobbied successfully to remove mercury (thimerosal) from routine childhood vaccinations, no one is mentioning that the widely-advised flu shot still contains thimerosal.flu shot

Mercury poisoning has been linked to harm in the nervous system, heart, lungs, kidneys, and immune system. It can cause mental dysfunction in growing children and dementia and malaise in adults. Some believe thimerosal in vaccines is linked to autism. No amount of mercury is considered safe.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), thimerosal is not the only non-medicinal additive in our vaccines. Vaccines may contain any or all of the following:

Type of Ingredient Examples Purpose
Preservatives Thimerosal (only in multi-dose vials of flu vaccine) To prevent contamination
Adjuvants Aluminum salts To help stimulate the body’s response to the antigens
Stabilizers Sugars, gelatin To keep the vaccine potent during transportation and storage
Residual cell culture materials Egg protein To grow enough of the virus or bacteria to make the vaccine
Residual inactivating ingredients Formaldehyde To kill viruses or inactivate toxins during the manufacturing process
Residual antibiotics Penicillin, sulfa drugs To prevent contamination by bacteria during the vaccine manufacturing process

You can request a thimerosal-free version of the flu vaccine; it will come in a single-use rather than a multi-use vial.

Here is the CDC’s table of what exactly is in each version of the influenza vaccine, so that you can check to see if there are any ingredients you might already know you’re sensitive to, like polysorbate 80, a chemical surfectant an emulsifier that we test for with the MRT because it can trigger reactions in many people, before agreeing to be injected.

Avoid the flu… and flu shots!

I was pleased today to see Dr. Mercola’s advice for avoiding the flu… and the flu vaccination. I’ve been agonizing over whether to get a flu shot this year.

He suggests that the flu may be caused by a vitamin D deficiency since “flu season” comes during the winter months when sunlight is scarce. He recommends taking vitamin D supplements of levels up to

Here are the other “secrets” Dr. Mercola uses to keep the flu (and other illnesses) at bay:

Another useful supplement you could try, should you come down with a case of the flu, is olive leaf extract, which you can find in most any health food store.

Olive leaf extract has been found to be a potent broad-spectrum antiviral agent, active against all viruses tested, including numerous strains of influenza and para-influenza viruses.

Personally, I have found homeopathic Oscillococcinum to be quite effective against flu symptoms, and always keep some in my supplement drawer.
