Influenza (flu) Information
Are there hidden dangers that our doctors do not know or do not tell us about the antiviral drug, Oseltamivir, widely known by it's brand name, Tamiflu?
Read on to find out things that you may not know about Tamiflu...
Association of spontaneous abortion after flu vaccine containing H1N1pdm09
SAB was associated with influenza vaccination in the preceding 28 days. The association was significant only among women vaccinated in the previous influenza season with pH1N1-containing vaccine. This study does not and cannot establish a causal relationship between repeated influenza vaccination and SAB, but further research is warranted.
Study prompts call to examine flu vaccine and miscarriage
A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu.
275 Injured and 4 Dead from Flu Shot States the First Goverment Vaccine Injury Report of 2017
On September 8, 2017, the federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services concluded their first meeting of 2017.
Quaterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).The current report covers cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths from 11/16/16 through 8/15/17.
332 cases were listed in the report from this time period, specifying the vaccine, the injury or death, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement.
275 of the 332 cases were for injuries due to the flu vaccine, and there were 5 deaths, 4 of them related to the flu vaccine.
Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis After Influenza Vaccination: A Case Report
“Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis developed in a 42-year-old woman within 3 weeks of receiving the seasonal influenza vaccine. She had 80% recovery after 3 months of treatment with methylprednisolone. Although cases of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis after vaccination for influenza are rare, enough of them have occurred that critical care nurses should be aware of the possibility. Early treatment can prevent serious residual signs and symptoms; therefore, correct and quick diagnosis is important. Medical history obtained from patients with central nervous system problems should include history of recent vaccinations.”
CDC Admits Flu Shots Fail Half the Time.
...the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admitted that flu shots don’t prevent influenza most of the time.5 In fact, studies show that a history of seasonal flu shots can even make people more susceptible to getting sick with a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks! But just like with pertussis infections, a lot of people also get and transmit influenza infections without showing any symptoms at all.
Johns Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report On Flu Vaccines
An article on Your Newswire discusses how Peter Doshi from the John Hopkins School of Medicine has issued a SCATHING report on the dangers of flu vaccinations in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that completely demolishes the established ‘scientific’ theory that flu vaccinations are safe and effective.
Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Enhances Colonization of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in Mice
Infection with influenza viruses increases susceptibility to severe lower and upper respiratory tract (LRT and URT, respectively) bacterial infections resulting in complications, such as pneumonia, bacteremia, sinusitis, and acute otitis media (11). Bacterial infections may be a primary cause of mortality associated with influenza virus infection in the absence of preexisting comorbidity (12, 13). Primary influenza virus infection increases acquisition, colonization, and transmission of bacterial pathogens (14), most notably the pneumococcus Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus (11, 15).
Flu vaccine confers10 times the risk of developing alzheimer’s disease
“If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 – 1980 (the years of the study) his / her chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease is 10 times greater than if they had one, two or no shots.” When asked why this is, Dr. Fudenberg stated that, “It is due to the mercury and aluminum buildup that is in every flu shot. The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction.”
Influenza: marketing vaccine by marketing disease
he British Medical Journal:
The CDC pledges “To base all public health decisions on the highest quality scientific data, openly and objectively derived.” But Peter Doshi argues that in the case of influenza vaccinations and their marketing, this is not so
Effectiveness of trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine in influenza-related hospitalization in children: a case-control study.
TIV did not provide any protection against hospitalization in pediatric subjects, especially children with asthma. On the contrary, we found a threefold increased risk of hospitalization in subjects who did get the TIV vaccine.
Increased Risk of Noninfluenza Respiratory Virus Infections Associated With Receipt of Inactivated Influenza Vaccine
We randomized 115 children to trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) or placebo. Over the following 9 months, TIV recipients had an increased risk of virologically-confirmed non-influenza infections (relative risk: 4.40; 95% confidence interval: 1.31-14.8). Being protected against influenza, TIV recipients may lack temporary non-specific immunity that protected against other respiratory viruses.
