The flu vaccine may have a strange problem that US scientists can’t fix

Getting a flu shot every year? More may not be better
If you’ve been diligent about getting your flu shot every year, you may not want to read this. But a growing body of evidence indicates that more may not always be better.
The evidence, which is confounding some researchers, suggests that getting flu shots repeatedly can gradually reduce the effectiveness of the vaccines under some circumstances.
That finding is worrying public health officials in the US, who have been urging everyone to get a flu shot each year — and who still believe an annual vaccination is better than skipping the vaccines altogether.

The flu vaccine may have a strange problem that US scientists can’t fix
researchers are concerned about what appears to be a troubling trend: Repeated vaccinations against the flu might make the newest shot less effective than the last, Helen Branswell reports at Stat.
When researchers followed 328 households during the 2010-2011 flu season, they found — much to their surprise — that the only people who really seemed to benefit from immunization were the ones who hadn’t gotten a flu shot the year before. These “unexpected findings … require further study,” the researchers wrote, in 2013.
A larger and more robust study, published last year in Clinical Infectious Diseases, added more evidence that the 2013 study was onto something important. Researchers followed more than 7,000 people for eight yearly flu seasons, and they learned people got the strongest protection against the flu only when they were vaccinated for the current season — and at no other time during the previous five years.

Woman dies of sepsis after getting flu shot; CDC claims it as flu death, urges public to get vaccinated
(NaturalNews) A Wisconsin radiology technician who was recently forced by her employer to get a flu shot died just days later after contracting sepsis, according to reports. Katie McQuestion, a 26-year-old from Kenosha, reportedly took the jab in compliance with her hospital’s demands, resulting in a rapid progression from good health to severe illness to gruesome death.
Almost immediately after getting a flu shot, Katie began to feel ill with the flu, she initially reported to her loved ones. The otherwise healthy, spry young woman who had no previous medical conditions suddenly developed flu-like symptoms during a trip out to shop for dresses with her mother on December 29. Katie was engaged to be married.
“She was the picture of health,” stated the girl’s mother, who wished to remain anonymous, to ABC News. “No 29-year-old should have to bury his wife,” she added in reference to McQuestion’s fiancee.
Katie told her mother flu shot made her sicker than she had ever been
One day after visiting the dress shop, Katie was sent home from work because her condition was worsening. On the following day, New Year’s Eve, Katie’s mother went to pick up a prescription for her, which didn’t help any as Katie’s health declined ever-further.

NaturalNews: The FDA finally starts to address baby rice’s arsenic problem: reduces amount of brain-damaging

The FDA finally starts to address baby rice’s arsenic problem: reduces amount of brain-damaging ingredient, but won’t ban it
(NaturalNews) For the first time, the FDA is proposing to take action on widespread contamination of infant rice cereals with arsenic, according to draft rules released for public comment on April 1. But critics charge that the rules – which would leave arsenic levels in nearly all products unchanged – do not go far enough.
Arsenic is a naturally occurring chemical element that is lethal in high quantities (and has historically been used as a poison for both humans and animals). In lower concentrations, particularly in its inorganic form, it has been implicated as a carcinogen. Research reviewed by the FDA also shows that inorganic arsenic can cause decreased cognitive ability and learning performance among children, and that exposure during pregnancy can lead to worse pregnancy outcomes.

The Beneficial Childhood Illnesses & The Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex: A Deadly Fairy Tale

The Beneficial Childhood Illnesses
Measles, mumps, chickenpox, and rubella ALL have positive health benefits unlike the vaccine. The CDC knows this as does pharma, they also know people are waking up so they are amping up the fear and the propaganda against anyone who dares to question vaccines. Measles along with the other childhood diseases are a big deal because they build the immune system. Check out the following information which is just the tip of the iceberg! These minor illnesses of childhood build and prime the immune system for much worse things! Seek out the childhood diseases, have them, and be immune for life!

New Generation of Vaccine Adjuvants: Worst Ever?
All vaccine adjuvants are, by definition, toxic. Their function is to stimulate the immune system, that is, to initiate a response to a toxic agent. So, a new generation of adjuvants is being promoted as less toxic than any that have come before, while at the same time doing an even better job of priming the immune system so it will react to weak antigens. This leads to the question of how an adjuvant can be both safer than previous adjuvants and also more capable of agitating the stronger immune system response required to promote antibody creation to weaker antigens.
These new adjuvants are made from outer membrane vesicles (OMVs). A vesicle is a cavity, or sac. In a bacterium, OMVs are sacs that protrude from the exterior—membrane—of its body to protect itself in hostile environments. An OMV’s function is to be toxic.
Recombinant DNA technology is used to engineer bacteria so that they make OMVs to be used as antigens or adjuvants, which are then processed and added to vaccines. All of these products that are grown on the surfaces of microbes have one thing in common: they are proteoliposomes:
A proteoliposome is a liposome with one or more proteins inserted.
A liposome is a minute spherical sac of phospholipid molecules enclosing a water droplet.
A phospholipid is a type of lipid.
A lipid is a fatty acid. That is, a lipid is a fat.

The problem with these statements is that they are not supported by the evidence. When we look at the actual data, we see that although many people did die from whooping cough in the early part of the 1900s, by the time the vaccine had been introduced the death rate in the United States had declined by more than 90 percent. Using the source that was referenced to make the statement in the Pediatrics paper, we see that the decline in deaths from the peak was approximately 92 percent before the introduction of the DTP vaccine. [4]
Medical history books, almost uniformly extol the virtues of vaccination. Upon reading these books, one is left with the impression that during the 1800s and into the 1900s, there were rampant plagues that killed countless scores of people and that, because of vaccines, this is no longer the case. This is certainly what we believed growing up, and most people we talk to have a similar impression. It generally permeates society as an established fact.
It is difficult to underestimate the contribution of immunization to our well-being. It has been estimated that, were it not for childhood vaccinations against diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, smallpox, and rubella, as well as protection afforded by vaccines against tetanus, cholera, yellow fever, polio, influenza, hepatitis B, bacterial pneumonia, and rabies, childhood death rates would probably hover in the range of 20 to 50%. Indeed, in countries where vaccination is not practiced, the death rates among infants and young children remain at that level. [1]

The Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex: A Deadly Fairy Tale
It has been a particularly bad month for the pharmaceutical industrial complex in its ongoing litigations in American courts. Among the main pharmaceutical headlines, Merck’s Gardasil vaccine for HPV, now being widely administered to pre-teens, was found to be linked to amyltrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease; following a $1.4 billion fine in promoting one of its blockbuster drugs Zyprexa off-label, deceptive correspondence was uncovered by Eli Lilly gaming the system again by promoting another one of its drugs, Cymbalta, off-label for fibromyalgia; AstraZeneca was fined $160 million for scamming the Medicaid system in Kentucky after being fined $215 million for ripping off Alabama; Glaxo lost a Pennsylvania trial for failing to warn doctors and pregnant women of the dangers of its antidepressant drug Paxil related to birth defects; and Pfizer scored a record-breaking fine of $2.3 billion for illegally marketing several drugs over the years: Bextra, Zyvox, Geodon and Lyrica. These kinds of charges, among the many others, have become a habit for drug makers for the past dozen years.
