Flu shot hysteria is in full swing. In some ways, the most dangerous flu shot ingredients are the socio-political elements that make up the hysteria: drug company marketing, co-worker bullies, corporate mandates. I can’t tell you how many stories I hear from readers who are bullied and subjected to discrimination at corporate offices. It is utterly appalling.
But there are actual ingredients which are, well, pretty bad. They are disgusting. Here are a few winners.
Formaldehyde: You know, the stuff your science class preserved frogs in. This stuff is also used to maintain (stabilize) your flu vaccine concoction. Formaldehyde is a colorless and flammable substance often used in household cleaning products. You can, as alluded to before, embalm a dead body using it. It has been linked to neurological damage and metabolic acidosis. It can make it difficult for you to breath. Your kidney may take a dive. It has also been classified as a carcinogen for humans, which means it causes cancer.
Otherwise, it’s pretty safe.
Aluminum: This is used as an “adjuvant.” The goal is to stimulate an immune response. Aluminum, however, is a neurotoxin. It has been linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia. Some studies on humans have even shown it to cause nerve death.
Otherwise, solid healthy stuff this aluminum.
Phenol: This is supposed to help stimulate an immune response. It was used by Nazis to exterminate Jews during WW2. It is also used in weed killers to help kill weeds. Reproductive systems, liver, kidneys and even the skin don’t play well with phenol.
This is only a few of the real standout ingredients. Why on earth would anyone want to take this shot? How bad does everyone think the flu is? The flu is a good thing for the body to endure. Stop trying to stop every little thing from affecting you. There is no reason on earth to get this shot other than to appease a few coworkers or family members. Clearly, if you are forced by a company, that’s a different story. But otherwise, pay attention folks. KNOW what the heck you are putting into your body!
