Is the Flu Shot Really Healthy?

When thinking about flu shots, we randomly assume they are healthy, but does it improve or destruct the human body? Some feel that it is necessary for a healthy lifestyle while others argue it can be as harmful as poison. Does it sound outrageous? Yes. Is there truth to it? Most definitely. Flu shots claim to be free of mercury, however, states that claim is false. Some organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control even state that the mercury used in vaccines is not a harmful substance. However, in Japan, mercury has been proven to cause birth defects and has even killed a group of slaves in a mercury mine long ago. When pregnant, expect to be pressured into taking different types of vaccines, but little do you know, even the slightest bit of mercury in a pregnant women can diminish the child's brain development. The Centers for Disease Control in Simpson wood, Georgia, held a secret meeting at which harmful substances in the vaccines have been approved and "swept under the rug". At the meeting Dr. John Clements from the World Health Organization had said "that will have to be with thimerosal containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe.” This proves that even the different organizations are not completely sure how safe the vaccine is and therefore refuse to have themselves or their family members take it. Dr.William Weil from the American Academy of Pediatrics has declared "…the number of dose related relationships [between mercury and autism] are linear and statistically significant." From this statements we can assume that he too agrees with Dr.Clements decision. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control have stated that they will remove the mercury in the vaccines "as a precaution". However, Afluria CSL, Flulaval, FluVirin, and Fluzone are all vaccines containing 25 micro-grams of mercury. Later, they expressed that taking the substance out will cause harm to thousands of people because having to start all over with the vaccine manufacturing will be a hassle. Due to this, people are pointing the fingers at a new experimental vaccine which is highly suspected to have caused narcolepsy in 800 children throughout Europe. People have been causing quote a riot about this and after all of that, it has even been said by several sources that getting the flu shot does not completely keep out the flu and it is still possible to get the flu even with the shot. This defeats the entire purpose and leaves people with their flu shot money back in the bank.

Others have a different take on this entire situation and believe that in order to be healthy and keep the flu far away, you must take the flu shot. The Centers of Disease Control agree with this statement and believe that anyone six months or older should get the flu shot in order to avoid influenza. They also expressed that the new flu shot will prevent H1N1 flu virus. According to "The Flu Shot: Everything You Need To Know." The Flu Shot: Everything You Need To Know. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Apr. 2016. " doctors claim that one of the most common way of dying is influenza. For this reason, people are lining up to get the flu shot without hesitation. "Is the Flu Vaccine a Good Idea for Your Family?" KidsHealth - the Web's Most Visited Site about Children's Health. The Nemours Foundation, n.d. Web. 12 Apr. 2016. is also another source which supports the flu shot. It claims that the vaccine completely protects all kids and adults from the flu which can last a long painful time and does not have long lasting affects on the body other than keeping the virus out.
Looking at it from my perspective, the flu shot is the worst and pointless idea. It does somewhat protect the body from the flu and can let us off the hook in that aspect, but it has more permanent affects on not only the person receiving the flu shot, but possibly the baby of a pregnant women as well. Researching more about this topic brought to my attention that the results of the flu shot are not worth getting. If a person gets the flu shot, they are ignoring the flu but coming face to face to other conditions more serious. The government wants to keep such a thing a secret from the rest of society because it would be too much trouble to have to end the vaccination all together. Many jobs will be lost and a massive amount of money will be sacrificed. Flu shots have been proven by many organizations to contain mercury in them. Mercury is an extremely harmful substance that will slowly tear the body and its immune system down. Many people have died from this chemical and many more to come until the government decides to stop using this chemical in their vaccines. Until then, my morals and opinion on this topic will not change.
