Career, Work, and Health

Read my article on "The Pros and Cons of Flu Vaccination."  Here are the cons of flu vaccination:
  • Flu vaccine appeared to actually increase people's risk of getting sick with H1N1, and cause more serious bouts of illness to boot.
  • Natural infection is more beneficial
  • Seasonal flu vaccine may weaken your natural immunity
  • The flu shot covers less than 10 percent of the circulating viruses creating these illness.
  • Some patients developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after getting a seasonal flu shot (see the video)
  • The age-related decline of the immune system affects the body’s response to vaccination
  • Could we vaccinate our kids too early and too much?
  • Each dose flu vaccine contains traces of formaldehyde and 25 micrograms of thimerosal (a mercury containing compound; a preservative).
  • There are known adverse reactions to the flu vaccine
