“Flu Vaccine Facts”
With the return of flu season, it is time to update pertinent data. In short, flu vaccines do not work in 99 out of 100 people. My recent articles on the hidden epidemic of adverse drug reactions revealed that only a small percentage of medications are effective and FDA approved drugs cause over 130,000 deaths annually. The current flu season is due to the H1N1 virus (swine flu) and we must rely on evidence-based medicine (reliable scientific studies) to evaluate its effectiveness or necessity. We can not continue to be misled by “scare tactics” or false claims that a flu vaccination will provide you with 100% protection. As far as I can determine, there are no statistically validated, independent, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies (RCTs) proving the over all effectiveness of the flu vaccines. That is the first red flag. So, we are primarily left with the conclusions of so-called studies performed by the same people who manufacture and sell the vaccines.
