The Other Problem with Vaccines
Every fall we are urged to get flu shots and wash our hands, that's it. One would think we would receive more comprehensive information than these constant reminders? Aside from questions over flu shot effectiveness, the glaring omission of proven preventive measures is a black mark on our health department, healthcare system and medical reportage.
How can those promoting herd immunity ignore "herd" nutrition and ubiquitous environmental toxins? Simple steps like getting Vitamin D when the sun loses its strength in winter and the healthy fats needed for its production or avoiding stress and high glycemic foods (sugar, cereals, breads, pasta, soft drinks, most processed items) would go far in protecting the public from not only flu, but the troubling epidemic of chronic disease.
Contrary to the deeply ingrained "Germ Theory Of Disease," viruses and pathogenic bacteria are opportunists that depend on an acidic low-oxygen cellular terrain to proliferate. Yet the "herd" lives on a highly acid-forming high-glycemic grain-based American diet? The herd is also deficient in pH buffering minerals and antioxidants, and harbors disturbing levels of inflammatory metals and agri-chemicals. Infections, life threatening complications, low mental function, depression, diabetes, as well as cancers, arthritis and most chronic diseases arise from unmet nutritional requirements, wrong nutrition and cumulative toxins.
The paucity of accurate prevention steps, plus the refusal on the part of conventional medical interests to address root causes of disease, plus a reluctance to suggest any idea deemed "alternative" has resulted in an uninformed public that is confused about their health, self-care responsibility and simple remedies. Furthermore, standard healthcare opts for only the most expensive side-effect laden drugs, diagnostics and procedures, and refuses to utilize cheap common sense practices like nutritional correction, vitamins, mineral supplements, probiotics and herbals, and even disparages their effectiveness and those competing professionals that use them! When life hangs in the balance, patients in most US hospitals will die before receiving IV Vitamin C and mineral infusions or hyperbaric oxygen, even though these therapies have proven useful in uncontrollable viral brain swellings, infections and pneumonias elsewhere! If these policies are designed to boost pharmaceutical healthcare's dominance at the expense of public health, we have entered an age of unprecedented immorality.
Remember, NO ONE owns science or should assume the authority to force compulsory medication on any other, regardless of credentials. Vaccines are a multi-billion dollar business, and with that kind of money involved, the credibility of patent holders and proponents must come to question. Today, vaccine detractors are summarily humiliated in the media whenever they question toxic ingredients and the prevalence of autism that has followed their proliferation. Their use in babies and very young children before their nervous systems have been fully myelinated is unsound. Logically, autism could be expected from these insults since it is characterized by chronic brain inflammation that prevents proper development. We are not faulty life-forms. Disease does not just happen.
This is not to condemn all vaccines or drugs, but to detail how attention is diverted from the basic factors that are truly responsible for strong immunity and public health through an illogical silver bullet approach.
America has the dubious honor of having the most expensive, least effective healthcare system of all developed nations according to the World Health Organization, and not from the lack of pills and vaccines. There are broad agricultural and industrial factors undermining our health. To ignore the facts while feeding the pharma-monster will doom this nation. The dream of a perfect techno "world of tomorrow" is dissolving at the hands of monied interests that prefer to control information and politicians in order to perpetuate their dirty businesses like war, fossil energy, chemical GMO agriculture and a failed healthcare monopoly. This effectively suffocates an urgent need to evolve into a peaceful, healthy and sustainable civilization.
Our two party system appears to offer a choice, except the media ignores all third party names. "Shot or mist" is a similar "choice" that eclipses any other ideas by omission. Since both government and the healthcare system are abject failures, the public must at least be aware that these "fences" are designed to control herd-think by limiting choices through a precast premise. That way the game is rigged before anyone comes to the table; so the "house" never loses! 70% of Americans swallow media hook, line and sinker and would probably like to know they are being swindled.
