There seems to be a lot of confusion and controversy surrounding the topic of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. Here is my opinion: don’t get vaccinated. I’m not. This is a flu virus. The human immune system is set up to adapt to new strains of viruses all of the time. This is how it learns. Statistics show no increase in yearly deaths related to the influenza virus worldwide; we are at the normal average calculated over the last 20 years. Other studies show that flu vaccines don’t even work. Media has blown the death toll numbers out of proportion. Of the 3,600 deaths being reported, only 257 are listed on the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s website as having tested positive for the virus whereas the rest were deaths related to pneumonia, a bacterial complication.
To me, the risks involved in getting the flu shot far outweigh any potential (not even proven) benefit.
New studies out of China have found that the Indigo plant, from which 3 Chinese herbs (Qing Dai, Da Qing Ye and Ban Lan Gen) are derived, has been effective in treating the swine flu. These herbs have been known for some time in Chinese Medicine to be antiviral agents.
Here is a website with a good summary of reasons not to get vaccinated: http://www.chronogram.com/issue/2009/11/Whole+Living/What-the-F?page=1
I was sent the links to the following series of youtube videos. I imagine being Dr. Null, knowing all that information, would be somewhat frustrating.
