FluMist... Know The Risks!
Given this is a fairly new product, I wanted to provide for readers a few comments from those who have studied issues surrounding FluMist...
Particularly interesting are these articles (Dr. Sherri Tenpenny) outlining the risks, politics, and financial implications of this new vaccine - for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated!

Note also what the CDC website states regarding this product - I quote:
"Updated: March 01, 2005
So...this product does not contain mercury (and as such, you would think it would be the safest one out there)... yet it should not be given to those under 5 or those over 49, not to pregnant women and only to "the healthy"... hum... am I just the only one who sees something very "odd" here... all you "other folks"... infants, pregnant women, the elderly, the sick... guess you can just line up for that toxic mercury laced shot... that "regular flu shot"... Incompetence at the CDC, in my opinion, is alive and well and to me... this certainly speaks VOLUMES as far as the "safety" of this new nasal spray product.
For a whole lot more on whether or not the influenza vaccine is even "effective" and the myth that "vaccines save lives"... take a look at this very revealing article: http://www.vaccination.inoz.com/vacprotect2.html.
Note that in these charts, death rates had gone down by 90%+ long before the vaccine was ever introduced! Note also that for those things for which there was no vaccines, the trend was virtually the same... so... do vaccines really save lives and "provide protection"... I think the jury is still very much out on that and that more and more are finding that vaccines are actually counter-productive... doing more damage than good!
The simple fact is that each year, the CDC must guess as to which 2 or 3 stains (of a possible 16,000+ strains) will "hit". Given the "expertise" at the CDC, personally, I just don't believe they are competent enough to even begin to make the proper assessment on this issue. For a whole lot more on that issue of "competence" and indeed, integrity, at the CDC, read "Book 3" posted on this website. Before you believe what the CDC states on its website... take a look at what it says "behind closed doors" by going to Reports!
... and remember this critical... most revealing quote:
"Perhaps the most important thing that I took away from the last meeting was that those of us who deal with vaccines have really very little applicable background with metals and toxicological research." [Dr. Martin Myers, Director of the National Vaccine Program Office, Department of Health and Human Services, National Vaccine Program Office Workshop on Aluminum In Vaccines, Caribe Hilton International Hotel, San Juan, Puerto Rico, May 11th - 12th, 2000, p. 1, transcripts provided by Eberlin Reporting Service, 14208 Piccadilly Road, Silver Spring, MD, 20906, (301) 460-8369), full transcript is posted under my Reports link].
Personally, I have concerns about this vaccine having direct access to the brain via the olfactory system. For that reason alone, I personally, would never take such a product - especially given I know that vaccine studies are usually no longer than 30 days and given viruses themselves are now very much linked to mental illness (more on that in "Book 3"! Via the olfactory system, Flumist can bypass the blood brain barrier and give a "direct hit" to the brain... question is... are you willing to take "that direct shot to your brain"? especially since the olfactory bulb is but one of only two parts of the brain known to continue to develop new cells through most of a person's life (the other being the hippocampus - something very much "hit in Alzheimer's" ) and given it is believed these parts of the brain that continue to develop new cells may be where we get new stem cells for the brain... and keeping in mind that the sense of smell is tied to much more than "just smell"... it is tied to imagination, memory, sense of self, and a whole lot more in the human brain... For a whole lot more on these issues... again... read "Book 3"!
Thanks, but... no thanks!
