Will you be giving your family the H1N1 vaccine? We won’t.
It’s been confirmed that the H1N1 vaccine, and in fact, most flu seasonal flu vaccines, contain Thimerosal and/ or mercury. Check out this chart from the Institute for Vaccine Safety /John’s Hopkins Bloomberg School for Public Health: Thimerosal Content in Some US Licensed Vaccines
Yes, it’s a small amount of mercury, but why inject mercury into your child at all? Mercury is considered toxic. Many people concerned about their health spend good money and a lot of time trying to remove the mercury from their brain and other tissues. Mercury poisoning is one of the possible factors in autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis. Other possible health problems from mercury include thyroid problems, Alzheimer’s Disease, kidney problems, future infertility and various immune system disorders. Here is a link to Dr. Mercola’s article on mercury toxicity and detoxification. Mercury Toxicity and Systemic Elimination Agents
Outside of the mercury controversy is the question of the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine. It is an unproven, and poorly tested vaccine. Pharmaceutical companies rushed to manufacture the H1N1 vaccine at the request of the US. Government in order to protect against a pandemic which may never happen. Do you remember the Swine Flu pandemic of 1976? Probably not, because despite the warnings of the CDC and general panic within the US health care system there WAS NO pandemic – no massive death toll. Although many people died or became ill because of the flu shot they received.
You can avoid getting the H1N1 flu simply by taking Vitamin D3. Dr Mayer Eisenstein suggests taking 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 for three days at the first sign of flu. His complete flu protocol suggestions can be found on his website Homefirst Health Services.
