The Truth about the Swine Flu (and vaccines in general)

I assimilated this information from an article by Dr. Russell Blaylock and a parallel interview that Dr. Mercola did with him. (You can find both here.) Then I added additional related information from the head of the National Vaccine Information Center and from Congressman Ron Paul.

Dr. Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. For the past 25 years he has practiced neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice. He recently retired from both practices to devote full time to nutritional studies and research.

The interview with Dr. Blaylock was 40 minutes long, but SO informative! I figured most people wouldn’t watch it and that I wouldn’t watch it again or read through the technical information in his article again, so I just took really detailed notes.  I also organized the information in a way that made better sense to my brain.

I hope this information serves you!

Science is saying that there’s been much ado about nothing.

As stated by virologists – the scientists who study viruses – the swine flu virus is no more a danger than the seasonal virus that visits each year.  It actually seems to be much weaker!

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) itself, in its materials, says the swine flu is a mild, seasonal flu. The death rate is actually lower than the past two seasons of flu, even in the pediatric age group.  It appears to have a lower communicability than previous flu viruses.

But aren’t there people dying from this swine flu?

What is little understood by the general public is that the only reason people die from the flu is that they have either an immune suppressing chronic illness (such as diabetes), direct immune dysfunction, dietary deficiencies of critical immune-supporting nutrients, chronic pulmonary disease, heart disease or cancer.

A study by the CDC found that 32% of children dying from H1N1 flu had asthma, when the incidence of asthma in the general population was 8%. Two thirds of the children who died had neurological disorders, such as seizures and cerebral palsy.

So, the vast majority (about 90%) of children who are dying have one of a number of chronic health conditions.  Yet the media gives us the impression that perfectly healthy children are dying. Keep in mind that the number of flu-related deaths among children was lower this year than the previous two years.

So, rest assured that if you or your child don’t have any chronic degenerative disease and lead a healthy lifestyle, the risk of suffering any significant complication is virtually non-existent.

The government’s stats are highly inflated.

The government recently put out a statistic saying that 90,000 people would die of the flu.  But Dr. Blaylock ran the numbers based on what we’ve seen so far, and the worst projection is actually only 5,000.

Here’s a quote from Congressman Ron Paul on the recent swine flu scare.  You can watch the full 3 minute, 52 second video here.

Looks like our government is getting us pretty upset and concerned about the swine flu.  This is interesting to me, not only for political reasons, but also as a physician.

It makes me think back to 1976, the first year I served in the Congress.  We had a vote on the swine flu.  We had a panic, and they said it was going to sweep the nation. They rapidly came up with some flu shots and the government was going to inoculate everyone and save the world from this disaster.  I remember there were two votes against it: myself and Larry McDonald, another physician.

It turned out that our instincts were correct. Not only did we object because we didn’t think the government should be in the medical business and making these medical decisions, but the flu came and the flu went and one person died — EXCEPT for those individuals who died from getting the flu vaccine. Over 25 people died just from getting the vaccine and many got ill from it until finally they had to suspend the whole program.

Here we are once again, the swine flu coming up, and everybody is panicking.  This is not to downplay the seriousness.  Some people have died; some people might die yet.  We have had no deaths in this country.  There are 7 or 8 cases up in New York. None have even been hospitalized.  Yet, it’s practically like we’ve been attacked by nuclear weapons.  I mean, press conferences over the weekend, prime item for the Department of Homeland Security?! Now, how did the Department of Homeland Security get into the medical business?  It is just totally, totally out of control …

. . . Does a bigger government solve these problems?  They usually make it much worse.  All I am asking people to do is to step back and think for a minute rather than rushing and panicking.

The government is creating fear in order to push mandatory vaccination.

Homeland Security and FEMA are pushing for forced vaccinations.  But the medical experts, virologists and epidemiologists are calling for calm and resorting to voluntary vaccination only. The former have links with the vaccine manufacturers via political contacts.  So, behind the push to vaccinate the entire population are the pharmaceutical makers of the vaccines.  They are working in conjunction with the government to make the vaccine mandatory.

The drug companies are preparing at least 4 billion doses of this vaccine worldwide.  A great deal of money will be made by the manufacturers should forced vaccinations be mandated. The drug companies are using the leverage of the government to confiscate the income.

Dr. Russell Blaylock says, “It is obvious that the government is using scare tactics” to promote vaccine use in the United States and that the pharmaceutical makers of vaccines are in bed with these officials. The public should be outraged.”

What the government is doing is morally reprehensible.

People have a false impression of vaccines.

People think vaccines are a sterile, purified solution to prevent infection and give them immunity. What they are not aware of is that there are many negative by-products and preservatives in those vials. The contamination issue far exceeds any other issue, because not only are YOU infected, but it’s passed on to your children and grandchildren.

We saw this with the SV-40 contamination of the polio virus.  We’re now seeing this in 2nd and 3rd generations.  It’s producing brain, lung, and ovarian tumors.  This is being kept completely away from the public, but is discussed widely in medical literature.

Vaccines are the most abnormal way to produce immunity in a person. It does not replicate natural infection.  You get a completely different immune reaction than you would normally.  This immune reaction can be very destructive.  It’s a long term reaction that could go on for years, producing smoldering brain inflammation, loss of memory, loss of coordination.  This is being completely ignored by the pharmaceutical companies, but is well documented in medical literature.

Additionally, many vaccinations, like MMR and HIB are powerful immune suppressants.  So, if a child gets an MMR or HIB shot and then is exposed to the flu virus, it increases their chances of dying from the flu.  Parents are typically not told this explicitly.

Most doctors only have half the story.

This is not something physicians are taught in medical school.  Doctors get their information about vaccines from the vaccine manufacturers and from their societies, like the American Academy of Pediatrics.  However, a number of investigations have shown that a large percentage of the people on the vaccine board and the AAP are receiving money from the vaccine manufactures. So, the physicians are not getting accurate information.  And most are not digging into the scientific literature to find out the rest of the story.

Reasons to avoid the Swine Flu vaccine (and most vaccines for that matter)

1) The vaccines are not effective. Strong evidence from 51 different well-conducted studies show that children under age 2 get absolutely no protection from the flu vaccine whatsoever. They did a 30 year study on adults and found it did not reduce hospitalizations or death at all. That’s 0%.   Yet, people are still being told to get the vaccine to reduce hospitalizations and death.

2) Use of vaccines have serious consequences. Many are heavily contaminated with a number of stealth-type viruses, adjuvant, and preservatives.

a. Stealth-type virus. According to a number of studies, vaccine contamination is widespread, with vaccines containing pestivirus, mycoplasma, viral fragments, DNA fragments and bacterial components, all of which can produce chronic systemic disorders, cancer, neurologic diseases and even slow brain degeneration. The neurological world has seen an explosion of vaccine-related disorders. Medical professionals in closed meeting discuss this extensively, but they don’t let the public know about it. They’re afraid that if the public knew these vaccines were contaminated and could cause degenerative brain disease and cancer even a decade or two decades later, they would not be so quick to take them.

b. Adjuvants. The oil-based adjuvant, Squalene, is being considered for use in this flu virus. But ALL oil-based adjuvants are associated with auto-immune diseases, such as an MS-like neurological syndrome, rheumatoid joint disease and especially Lupus. There has been a paralleled explosion of auto-immune diseases in the American public and the British, where the most concentrated vaccine programs are carried out.

It is important to note that there were three studies addressing the issue of the safety of Squalene.  They all said it was perfectly safe.  But a closer look reveals that two were published by pharmaceutical companies; the other was published by the Department of Defense.  ALL of the independent studies showed that Squalene is dangerous when injected into the muscle.  So, we see again and again that the pharmaceutical industries are not above faking studies.

c. Preservatives.

Mercury. The seasonal flu vaccine that they are giving with the other two swine flu vaccines will have mercury as a preservative. Mercury has been shown, even in very low concentrations, to produce slow degeneration in the brain.  The fact that they will be giving this to infants, pregnant women, and the elderly is terrifying.  As mercury accumulates in the brain, it’s converted to ionic mercury, which is the most destructive and difficult to remove from the brain.  So, it stays for decades, if not a lifetime. Most poisons are toxic in measurements of parts-per-million.  Mercury, however, is toxic at parts-per-billion.  To illustrate, this would be the equivalent of one grain of salt in an entire swimming pool.  It doesn’t take much to cause significant damage. It’s not like arsenic where you ingest it and drop dead.  It causes interference in cell function, particularly in the brain. Can cause subtle problems like language or behavioral problems.  Or it can cause full blown autism.

Aluminum. Just about EVERY vaccine contains aluminum, which has been shown to accumulate in the brain in a lifetime, producing brain inflammation. Aluminum is associated with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease.  In regards to Lou Gehrig’s disease (100% fatal), vaccination increases the incident of ALS in soldiers who are taking the Anthrax vaccine 200%!

3)  The Swine Flu vaccine is being fast-tracked. This means the vaccine manufacturers are not using the safety precautions they normally use (which are not tremendously good in the first place). Since they don’t have as much of the antigen (the actual flu virus) to put in the vaccine, they are massively increasing the adjuvant component.

They have done 5 safety studies, however NONE of these studies are using vaccine which contain ANY adjuvant whatsoever!!!  (See details at When the vaccine is released it WILL have adjuvant in it.

This is the exact same bait-and-switch they did in 1976 that produced the disaster we saw.  They tested one vaccine and gave a different one during the mass vaccinations. Over 500 people were paralyzed with Guillain Barre disorder. The actual incidence was much higher, because it was not a reportable disease. And over 300 people died, which is also a very low figure.  We’ll see a lot more Guillain Barre paralysis. Infants will die; pregnant women will have babies who have a high risk of developing autism and schitsophrenia. (Immunization during pregnancy can drastically increase these conditions in offspring.)

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was asked, “Do you have any experience using these adjuvants in children?”  He said, “No, we don’t have any data.”  In other words, millions of children will be guinea pigs to see what these adjuvants will do.

He was asked, “Do you know what will happen when you mix these viruses in these three vaccines that you’re planning to give?”  He said, “No, we don’t have any idea.”

Then he was asked,” Two of the big studies are being done by major pharmaceutical companies. Are you planning on looking at the safety data from the number one supplier of the vaccine?”  His answer was, “No, they have their own, very complicated internal examining system.  We’ll just let them do it.”

There are a lot of unknowns that they admit. (See Nature Vol 460/30 July 2009, p 562 for the interview.)

This quote from Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center (, sums it up well.  You can watch the full 10 minute video here.

If the government can let vaccine manufacturers fast-track Gardisil vaccine, but can’t compel the drug companies that makes the vaccine or doctors who give the vaccine (who are shielded from liability), to report each and every death and serious injury that follows vaccination, why should we believe anything government health officials tell us about the safety of vaccines?  Why should we believe that the experimental swine flu vaccines being fast-tracked with only a few weeks of study in healthy children and adults are going to be safe?  And that all vaccine reactions will be reported to the government and then properly followed up? It is far more likely that when children get swine flu vaccines in schools and then get really sick or even die (like the Gardisil girls), all those bad health outcomes will be written off as a “coincidence” by health officials if any reports are made to the government at all… This is not the way to run a national vaccine program…

Now, today, we have swine flu vaccines that are being rushed to market with even less testing than the fast-tracked Gardisil vaccine had with the justification that there is a public health emergency.  What public health emergency?!?  As everyone knows by now the swine flu is no more serious than the garden variety influenza that goes around every year.

What to do if you are forced to get a flu vaccine (or any other vaccine):

1.    Place a cold compress on the site of the injection immediately after the injection and continue this as often as possible for at least two days. This will prevent a lot of the hyper-immune reaction that causes fever, listlessness, etc. This will prevent the systemic activation of the brains’ immune cell.  So, the simple cold pack will highly protect the brain. If symptoms of fever, irritability, fatigue or flu-like symptoms reoccur — continue the cold compresses until they abate. A cold shower or bath will also help.

2.    Vitamin D3 reduces excess immune over-reaction. Vitamin D3 is perfectly safe and will help your body to produce antimicrobial peptides, which kill viruses, bacteria and fungi. Studies have directly correlated the risk of dying from infection to the blood level of vitamin D3.  If you increase D3, your risk of dying from these infections and risk of developing an autoimmune disease or severe brain disease falls significantly.

a.    All Children (even small children)—5,000 IU a day for two weeks after vaccine then 2,000 IU a day thereafter
b.    Adults — 20,000 IU a day after vaccine for two weeks then 10,000 IU a day thereafter
c.    Take 500 mg to 1000 mg of calcium citrate a day for adults and 250 mg a day for children under age 12 years.

3.    Take fish oils — I recommend the Norwegian fish oil made by Carlson Labs — it has the correct balance of EPA and DHA to reduce the cytokine storm. The dose is one tablespoon a day — if severe symptoms develop — two tablespoons a day until well and then switch to one tablespoon a day. Children — one teaspoon a day.

4.    Curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid as a mixture — the first two must be mixed with extra virgin olive in one teaspoon. Take the mix three times a day (500 mg of each). This will dramatically reduce inflammation in the body.

5.    Vitamin E (natural form) 400 IU a day (high in gamma-E)

6.    Vitamin C 1000 mg four times a day

7.    Astaxanthin 4 mg a day

8.    Zinc 20 mg a day for one week then 5 mg a day

9.    Avoid all immune stimulating supplements (mushroom extracts, whey protein) except beta-glucan — it has been shown to reduce inflammation, microglial activation and has a reduced risk of aggravating autoimmunity, while increasing antiviral cellular immunity.

10.    Take a multivitamin/mineral daily (one without iron — Extend Core)

11.    Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules three times a day

12.    Avoid all mercury-containing seafood

13.    Avoid omega-6 oils (corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils)

14.    Blenderize parsley and celery and drink 8 ounces twice a day

15.    Take Jatoba tea extract (add 20 drops in on cup of tea) one day before the vaccine and the twice a day thereafter. (you can get it at It is inexpensive.

  1. Thank you for this! It is terrifying to think this vaccine could be forced upon us with the threat of taking our children away if we refuse. Most importantly, God can protect us from harm should we be forced.

  2. I was reading your blog and I being in the healthfield am curious as to where you got your information? Is it researched based ? From a legitimate study? Is it double blinded for non-biased data? I find some of the information posted to be a little off base. For starters as for as I know, no one is forcing any one to get a flu vaccine or any vaccine for that matter. I think that the information should be evidence based research if you are going to post material like this so your readers will make an educated decision not information based on people’s certain beliefs.

    1. Hi Amy,

      Thanks for taking the time to ask questions and for posting your concerns. I appreciate your willingness to challenge an opposing viewpoint. We need more discussion on these kinds of topics!

      I am not a medical expert; just a wife and mother with a particular interest in health and medicine. I enjoy reading up on these topics from people who ARE experts and posting my findings here on my blog.

      At the very start of this post, I wrote: “I assimilated this information from an article by Dr. Russell Blaylock and a parallel interview that Dr. Mercola did with him. (You can find both here.) Then I added additional related information from the head of the National Vaccine Information Center and from Congressman Ron Paul.”

      So, the post is pretty much word-for-word from Dr. Joseph Mercola’s interview of Dr. Russell Blaylock. I rearranged the order, but the words are direct quotes of the two doctors. The quotes from Ron Paul and the head of the National Vaccine Information Center are also direct quotes. I linked to the sources in all cases. All are videos that you can watch for yourself. I believe that on Dr. Mercola’s site he links to some of the studies in question.

      As for the forced flu vaccines, the doctors were saying that there is a push going on right now to mandate the vaccines. It’s not in effect yet. I hope that as people get more information they will keep it from happening. That’s why I am passing this information along.

      I hope that helps clear up any concerns that you or other readers might have. I know vaccinations are a very touchy subject and I for one can get pretty fired up about them. Ultimately, though, we are entitled to our varied beliefs.

      Kind Regards, Erika
