This should motivate you to stay healthy and warm, eat wisely and get plenty of rest this holiday season – INSTEAD of a flu shot!
Why Do We Get The Flu
The presence or absence of “germs,” the temperature outdoors, and/or the people in your environment, have absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you get the flu. The real concern is the health of your immune system.
- That’s exactly what they are trying to do by injecting you with the flu virus! They are attempting to artificially enhance the effectiveness of your immune response.
NOTE: The immune system is only influenced by two variables: stress and nutrition.
A 1994 study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in which 1,838 people over 60 years of age either received a flu shot or a placebo (saline solution). The study concluded that the flu shot resulted in a 50% reduction of the flu.
Here was the ACTUAL outcome of the study:
- 3% of those who were NOT vaccinated got the flu.
- 2% of those who WERE vaccinated got the flu.
Or on the flip side…
- Of those who were NOT vaccinated, 97% remained flu-free.
- Of those who WERE vaccinated, 98% remained flu-free
