Wednesday Dec 10, 2008 (foodconsumer.org) -- Flu shots
are officially recognized as ineffective although CDC officials claimed that
even if the drug does not prevent flu, it can relieve its symptoms.

something you might be interested in knowing.
Two-thirds of the flu vaccines made for the 2008–09 flu
season contain thimerosal, which is 49% mercury by weight, according to Dr.
Donald Miller, a cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of
Mercury is a neurotoxin, with a toxicity level 1,000
times that of lead, Dr. Mercola said on his website.
Each flu shot contains 25 micrograms of
mercury, or 50,000 parts per billion -- a level that is 250 times higher than
the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit.
Dr. Mercola cited Dr. Miller as pointing out that the
other substances in flu shots, all of which are known to be harmful to health,
particularly for children, cited in verbatim:
Formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing agent is used to inactivate the virus.
Aluminum, added to promote an antibody response, is a neurotoxin that may play
a role in Alzheimer’s disease.
Triton X-100 (a detergent)
Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
Various antibiotics such as neomycin, streptomycin, and gentamicin that can
cause allergic reactions
Those who are worried about the safety and efficacy of
flu vaccine might consider taking high doses of vitamin D to prevent or even
Dr. John Cannell, founder of Vitamin D Council and his
colleagues published an excellent review in the Feb 25, 2008 issue of Virology
Journal to propose a theory suggesting that flu is caused by lack of vitamin
The theory perfectly explains why flu
occurs in the winter, but not in the summer.
