Think Twice About Flu Shot

Tuesday, 29 November 2011 09:13 AM

Question: My employer is demanding that all employees get the flu shot. Do you recommend that I get it?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claims that 3,000 to 49,000 people die from the flu yearly. I say those numbers are hogwash. Only a few hundred people die yearly from the flu, and most of those people have complicated medical conditions.

Most flu vaccines are preserved with mercury. There is no excuse for injecting any living being with mercury. Furthermore, the flu vaccine is not very effective.

Every vaccine that you take causes inflammation of the brain. It is better to eat a healthy diet, keep vitamin D levels optimized, and supplement with vitamin C.

Some employers are mandating the flu vaccine even though the it has not been shown to be very effective at preventing the flu.

We don’t need our employers or Big Brother mandating that we be injected with a vaccine that is ineffective for the vast majority of people.

Skip the flu vaccine and instead eat well, watch vitamin D levels, and supplement with vitamin C.
