    READ THIS BEFORE YOU GET A FLU SHOT OR TAKE ANOTHER PILL:




    By Mary Starrett

    A senior executive with pharma-giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in the U.K. said that fewer than half the patients prescribed some of the most expensive drugs actually got any benefit from them.

    Whoa.

    How come that story didn't make front page news here in the U.S.? It was reported in the U.K. but pulled from a Reuter's stateside news lineup. Must have been an oversight.

    Allen Roses, a GSK vice president admitted something many of us have known in one way or another for sometime; that "the vast majority of drugs- more than 90 per cent- only work in 30 or 50 per cent of the people." The public might be surprised to hear this, especially if they're still visiting M.D.'s and leaving with their hands full of little white slips. Roses, an academic geneticist from Duke University wasn't saying anything his colleagues didn't already know. GSK, one of the most profitable of all the drug companies, has relied, as have the others, on selling as many drugs as they can to the widest group of people. Doctors have typically used the trial and error approach when prescribing for their patients. Try this, then that and see what chemical cocktail "seems" to "work". In what is the typical modus operandi, Western medical practitioners will consider a drug has "worked' if the symptoms are gone. The underlying dis-ease of the organism hasn't been healed, but the outward appearances of the ailment have been masked. Add to this the damage done by drugs on the body's other systems and you have the reason so many people are sick and getting sicker.

    Now that the president has pushed the massive socialist scheme called a "Drug Benefit" it appears the only ones benefiting will be the drug companies.

    We would all do well to listen-really listen- to what Dr. Roses admits concerning the efficacy of drugs. Consider that, according to him, drugs for Alzheimers work in only one out of three patients, cancer drugs are only effective in one in four patients and drugs prescribed for migraines , osteoporosis and arthritis work only half the time.

    With doctors working in concert with pharmaceutical companies, most people who enter a doctor's office rarely leave without pills, scripts for pills or the promise of different pills on the next visit… "if those don't work".

    Ozzy Osbourne, that mumbling, aging rock star who invited America into his home week after week just had surgery for injuries sustained in an accident. No wonder. The addle-brained performer was taking 42 different physician-prescribed drugs at the time of the accident. His daily intake of chemicals included antidepressants, antipsychotics, opiates, tranquilizers and amphetamines. Drugs like Valium, Adderall, Dexedrine and Mysoline got Ozzy through the day. The drugs were prescribed by a physician. While we tend to believe that only celebrities like Ozzy or Rush Limbaugh wind up being "over-served" by their high-dollar doctors, consider that with fewer than ten minutes to spend on each patient, many, if not most physicians simply prescribe something just to move on.

    Take the flu vaccine. You're being encouraged by your doctor, the media and the federal government through all points "sky is falling" flu news bulletins to get a flu shot- a chemical mash including formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury cultivated on chicken embryos. The animal byproducts in vaccines carry the risk of viral contamination. Vaccine companies cannot guarantee the purity of animal cells used in vaccine culture.

    Dr. Sherri Tenpenny cites research done by an immunogeneticist named Hugh Fudenburgh who's been studying the flu vaccines and reports that if someone has five consecutive flu shots his or her chances of getting Alzheimer's disease is ten times higher. FluMist, a live-virus nasal vaccine is being pushed in a $25 million dollar ad campaign. You may have seen the tv commercials for FluMist. Oddly, the very same symptoms the vaccine is supposed to prevent are mentioned as side effects of taking the highly contagious vaccine. The package insert warns recipients to "avoid close contact with immunocompromised individuals for 21 days". The number of those considered "immunocompromised" is huge-people on steroids, cancer drugs, folks with eczema, who've had organ transplants or who have HIV are considered at risk. I think it's safe to say that shooting a foreign substance into your nose can usually elicit a sneezing response…the very response that could serve to spread the LIVE VIRUS that is contained in FluMist.

    Could this be a self-fulfilling prophecy? No wonder they're predicting a worse than usual flu season!

    Fear Factor

    Headlines scream "Flu Bug Worse This Year: Vaccines Limited". For months we've been warned to get our flu shots. The CDC, physicians and the media have been bellowing about the severity of this year's strain and the potential scarcity of the vaccine.

    Brilliant marketing I say- just make people think they can't get something and they'll line up for hours to get a toxic fluid shot into their arms that DOESN"T EVEN CONTAIN THE VIRUS THAT"S GOING AROUND! That's right. This year's vaccine doesn't completely match the virus that's supposedly going to make this a record-breaking flu season.

    Each year between 20,000 and 40,000 people die from "flu-related" illness. These are people who are already immunocompromised. In other words, they're sick already, even if they're not showing symptoms. It is disingenuous to attribute all these deaths to the "flu".

    My recommendation is to sit down with your doctor or pharmacist or the stern tv news anchor -all of whom have been pushing this insane public health policy and ask them to read the list of ingredients in the vaccine vial. Then ask them what sense it makes to introduce these chemicals into the human body when more and more research shows severe damage occurs as a result.

    Ask him. Then roll down your sleeve and go home. Make sure you wash your hands a lot and stay away from people who've had the shots in their arms and up their noses.

    I caught the flu 2 years ago from people who got the flu shot. I have to agree with at least this part of the article and the rest sounds believable.

    The flu shots are a sick joke it isn`t even designed for the type of flu that is going around and the doctors say that it will only give you maybe 20% protection. You can get that just from washing your hands. At my place of work people who have fallin for the BS that you have to get the flu shot have been off work for 2 weeks sicker than if they would have gotten the real flu bug. Do not believe most of the crap that the media tells you, do your homework and find out what will and will not work.

    I work in a hospital so I was offered the shot for free - I turned it down. The one and only time I ever got one was about 10 years ago - an intramuscular shot in my shoulder. I was sick for a week afterwards and had a sore arm for a month.

    I'll take my chances with the flu, thanks.
