Cold and Flu Season


 

It's easy to tell when 'cold and flu season' is here, just look at the numerous signs prominently displayed at local drugstores, urgent-care clinics, even supermarkets, offering quick, inexpensive (and often free) flu shots to protect you and your family from the dreaded seasonal flu. Things that are advertised the most are often the largest waste of your hard-earned money. Does this apply to the heavily advertised flu shot? Does your immune system really need the 'assistance' of the annual "flu shot" to battle the flu?

Join me today on LivingFuelTV for an information-packed, must-see HealthAlert. We'll explore what exactly is a flu shot, how it "works" and we'll investigate how effective was last year's flu shot. You'll also learn many of the troubling ingredients in the vaccination.

We urge you to educate yourself before making the decision to get a flu shot.

Glance into a local family practitioner’s office today and you’re likely to see a fluorescently lit waiting room lined with weary, achy, sniffling, coughing flu sufferers. Our remarkable immune systems are under attack by the annual flu bug. So what’s the difference between those that contract the flu and those that remain well? Are we to believe the media, pharmaceutical companies, drug store advertisements, and government agencies that tell us that the flu vaccine is a must to protect you and your family?

 
Inconvenient facts about the Flu Shot

Did you know that during the 2012-2013 flu season, the flu vaccine's effectiveness was found to be just 56 percent across all age groups reviewed by the CDC —in essence, the statistical equivalent of a coin toss. In seniors, aged 65 and over, the US flu vaccines were onlynine percent effective.

The 'gold standard' of independent scientific evaluation and analysis, the Cochrane Database Review, has issued no less than five reports between 2006 and 2010, all of which decimate the myth that flu vaccinations are “the most effective flu prevention method” available.

In average conditions, when a flu vaccine at least partially matches the circulating virus, 100 people need to be vaccinated in order to avoid just ONE set of influenza symptoms, according to Cochrane’s findings.

Flu Shot or Not?


Remember, most deaths attributed to influenza are actually due to bacterial pneumonia, and these days, bacterial pneumonia can be effectively treated with advanced medical care and therapies like respirators and parenteral antibiotics.

Also, it is important to remember that only about 20 percent of all influenza-like illness that occurs every year is actually associated with influenza viruses because many types of respiratory illnesses with flu-like symptoms can be mistaken for influenza.  About 80 percent of cases of suspected influenza sent to the CDC for analysis lab test negative for type A or type B influenza.
