I like most people trust my doctor, and I trust my children’s pediatrician. If I hadn’t she would not have been their doctor for the last 8 years. It wasn’t until my son was sick that I learned there was so much more responsibility to being a mother. They tell you to take, Lamaze class and pick your child’s pediatrician, and more recently will you nurse or bottle feed your child. Eight years ago nursing was just starting to get pushed by doctors as being the best for baby, but if you didn’t nurse it was good to it didn’t make you a bad mother. No one gives you a book on vaccinating your child…or tells you about an alternate vaccine schedule…which I will get into on my next post.
So my husband and I did what most parents do, we received flu shots when our children could not, and when they could we gave them the flu shots offered at our pediatrician. I had heard of Mercury and Mercury poisoning in my few years in medical school, but didn’t realize it was still in shots! For some adults and children, this is no big deal. But do you know that when your child is born the state does a Newborn Screening that looks for Gene Mutations and Genetic Disorders? I didn’t, I also never received a phone call from my children’s pediatrician saying my child’s test came back okay, well her version of “okay”. At the time when my oldest was born, they were only doing a Genetic test for very well known disorders or disorders that can be treated early in life, like Sickle Sell Anemia, Cystic Fibrosis and a few more. They more recently started covering more information, like metabolic genetic disorders (how your body processes food and toxins). They also give very little info on the actual test results itself… No ranges just if its normal or not normal, which again based on your doctor is up for debate on what “Normal” really is.
In my children’s case we believe they have a Genetic Disorder that does not allow them to break down food into their red blood cells properly. Causing the system to not regulate histamine, nutrients and vitamins properly. They most likely received this gene from me as I have had the same symptoms my whole life, or they could have a double whammy and have a double gene mutation if they got it from both my husband and I. So for my kids detoxing the Mercury or any other toxin out of their system is already on overload from daily toxins in the air. To now give them the vaccine will make their immune system go into adrenal fatigue or cause major ADHD symptoms, Autism or even psychosis. This is just one component to why you should be more informed on what effects the flu shot can have on just this one gene mutation, but there is many other that parent doesn’t even know until it to late.
So where do we as parent’s do a better job? KNOW THE FACTS, make an informed decision…don’t just trust your pediatrician! It’s okay to question your doctor, you can’t turn back time and wish you asked the questions!
The flu shot handout the doctor gives us at the END of the appointment is useless by then and they have already had the shot. My doctor would give it to us and just tell me quickly what to watch for, not what was in the shot, or that I could order a Mercury free vaccine or even wait till my son would shake his ongoing caught! Educate yourself on these few important facts!
- The flu shot contains Eggs- Your child could be intolerant or Allergic to Eggs
- Flu shots contain sulfa like drugs to make the vaccine ex. penicillin
- The Flu shots contain numerous Neurotoxin like Polysorbate 80, Aluminum salts, Formaldehyde, Mercury, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG)
- You should be giving your child Probiotics, Vitamin C and very other things in higher doses to bump up their immune system.
- The package insert admits there are NO “controlled trials” for the flu shot.
- The package insert also says “Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children.”
- Do flu shots cause cancer? The honest, scientific answer is that these shots are never tested for that. As the insert readily admits:
“Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”
- “In addition to reports in clinical trials, the following adverse events have been identified during postapproval use of Flulaval…
allergic edema of the mouth
convulsions / seizures
facial or cranial nerve paralysis
- Mercury – Just how much mercury is in the vaccine. It doesn’t seem like much by the way the write it on the insert and box, but if you break it down you will be surprised to learn it is a lot.
This came from VaxTruth and really breaks down how much Mercury is in your system after a flu shot.
There are two kinds of flu shots given. One contains 25 mcg of mercury (in the form of thimerosal with is 50% mercury. There is 50mcg of thimerosal in this flu shot) and is often given as the “regular” flu shot to those with no special circumstances. The other kind of flu shot is labeled “thimerasol-free” (containing less than 3mcg of mercury) and is given to young children and pregnant women.
If we look at “safe” and “unsafe” levels of mercury, per the FDA, we find this:
2 ppb is the maximum amount of mercury that deems water “safe” for drinking
Anything over 200 ppb mercury is considered TOXIC [source – EPA]
After doing some math [you can check my math in the article: Vaccine Ingredients – A Comprehensive Guide], we find this:
There is up to 300 ppb mercury is in the “thimerosal-free” flu vaccine.
There is 25,000 ppb mercury given in the flu shot containing 25 mcg of thimerosal as a preservative.
No matter how you cut it, flu vaccines contain toxic amounts of mercury. So yes, the flu vaccines still DOES contain thimerosal. The claim that there is “no thimerasol” in the flu vaccine is a complete fallacy, which leads to the next myth.
Finally, even if you decide the flu vaccine is not for your children, keep in mind your child is still at risk. The flu vaccines and many others have shedding periods, these shedding periods are especially dangerous for children who have compromised immune systems. Keep track of when your child’s school will do a flu vaccine, The flu vaccine sheds 21-28 days after getting it depending on the brand and patience age. See this chart below (this is from the insert inside the box the vaccine is shipped in)
Please remember I am in no way telling you what you should do or in any way should you take this information as medical guidance. These facts are why my family will not be getting our flu shot.
