What You Should and Shouldn’t Do to Protect Yourself From the Flu Virus
When is the last time you got a flu vaccine? Do you get one every year? This is considered by many to be an extremely unsafe practice. But why is that?
Did you know that around eighty percent of people that receive flu shots get an unsafe dose of mercury. Mercury, is an extremely dangerous substance, so its presence should not be taken lightly. Mercury, especially in children, causes brain damage, and is often linked to causing autism. Vaccine makers note that there products often create an unsafe amount of mercury, but the CDC still continues to recommend people get the shot.
About 80% of these flu vaccines contain Mercury, a dangerous metal. The metal is in a chemical called thimerosal. Thimerosal is a anti-bacterial and anti-fungal that contains high doses of mercury. It is used so companies can send large containers of their drug without having to worry about it becoming contaminated.
But is the mercury in the vaccine enough to cause harm? Yes! A typical 0.5 milliliter flu shot contains 25 micrograms – or 50,000 parts per billion of mercury. The EPA classifies a liquid with 200 parts per billion of mercury as hazardous waste. The limit for drinking water is 2 parts per billion. That is 25,000 times more mercury than we are supposed to drink and we are putting it in our blood streams, so it does not even have a chance of being filtered out.
Hopefully by now you see why flu shots or flu vaccines are not safe. But, it is still important to come up with something to prevent the flu. Some people say to just wash your hands often, but it is obvious you can still get it, due to the majority of time not spent washing your hands.
Doctors, now, are starting to swear by supplements. These supplements boost your immune system, not only preventing all the flu viruses, but many other things like the common cold or other common ailments.
