I invited Joe to become a poster on my blog, and he has responded with his first post below. I frankly do not know a thing about the flu shot, and probably not much about the other stuff Joe will blog about from time to time, but I offer it to you as he sent it, and as usual, you can decide for yourself.
WHAT'S IN IT?
You can call me stupid, ignorant, old and foolish, but being a 67 year old diabetic I read and check the ingredient label on everything I take, may it be food, oral medicine, or a flu shot. How many ask to see the ingredient label, before taking a flu shot? If you did, would you know the meaning of ingredients listed and what they do? This old fool does and it should be something we should all know!
Here are some of the ingredients I have found on flu shot labels, which I would bet few, even medical professionals have even read the ingredients.
Some Flu shots contain now and in the past the following
Dead influenza viruses - which are the major flu shot ingredients, are grown in chicken eggs. Are you allergic to eggs?
Aluminum - a neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease (it is used as an additive to promote antibody response)
Triton X-100 - a detergent
Phenol - (also known as carbolic acid (this is used as a disinfectant, dye)
Ethylene glycol - (antifreeze)
Betapropiolactone - a disinfectant
Nonoxynol - used to kill or stop growth of STDs
Octoxinol 9 - a vaginal spermicidal
Sodium phosphate - clear colorless crystals, used chiefly in the manufacture of dyes, fertilizers, detergents, and pharmaceuticals
Thimerosal - a mercury disinfectant/preservative) can result in brain injury and autoimmune disease. Some flu shots contain as much as 25 mcg of mercury per dose. This means that it may contain more than 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit for mercury.
Neomycin and Streptomycin - (used as antibiotics) have caused allergic reaction in some people.
Formaldehyde - a known cancer-causing agent
Squalene MF59 - incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body. Ingested squalene has a completely different effect on the body than injected squalene. When molecules of squalene enter the body through an injection, even at concentrations as small as 10 to 20 parts per billion, it can lead to self-destructive immune responses, such as autoimmune arthritis and lupus. Most people will never equate these conditions being caused by a flu shot.
Some of you may try to equate a Flu Shot to some of the medical break-through vaccines of the past. The adjunct ingredients they now put into flu shot vaccines is something far different than what they use to put into vaccines. I’m not for or against flu shots. I’m for taking care of my body. Ultimately, we are all held accountable for what we do with our bodies!
It is your right to take the flu shot or not, and that is A-Ok for you don’t need any ones approval to do so. The same should hold true if you don’t want to take a flu shot. What should be of most concern to all of us is that the government is moving towards making this mandatory, required by law, and if they do we will have lost another one of our freedoms of choice.
