swine flu vaccine’s dirty lil' secret exposed

my online american friend shared with us on FB this article "Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed". i totally agreed with him: work on your immune system to avoid any flu virus :P

According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall.

This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk.

In Australia, where the winter season has begun, Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than regular seasonal flu. "Most people, including children, will experience very mild symptoms and recover without any medical intervention," she said.

Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as many children in the coming year as regular influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six regular flu deaths seen among children in an average year in Australia.

this article is by dr mercola excerpts from here.

dr mercola gave some guidelines for us to prevent or eliminate our risk of contracting the flu. i am placing it here as a self reminder as well.

educate yourself about influenza strains, vaccination risks, and the public health laws in your state that may require you or your children to undergo either mandatory vaccination or quarantine.

take care of your health to reduce or eliminate your risk of contracting the flu. the key is to keep your immune system strong by following these guidelines:

  • eliminate sugar and processed foods from your diet. sugar consumption has an immediate, debilitating effect on your immune system.

  • take a high quality source of animal-based omega 3 fats like krill oil.

  • exercise. your immune system needs good circulation in order to perform at its best for you.

  • optimize your vitamin d levels. vitamin d deficiency is the likely cause of seasonal flu viruses. getting an optimal level of vitamin d will help you fight infections of all kinds.

  • deal with stress effectively. if you feel overwhelmed by stress, your body will not have the reserves it needs to fight infection.

  • wash your hands. but not with an antibacterial soap. use a pure, chemical-free soap.
