With flu cases in this city up tenfold from last year, the mayor of Boston declared a public health emergency on the 9th of January. Right behind them the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that influenza has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with 7.3% of deaths last week caused by pneumonia and the flu.
AMERICANS are highly distracted. They won't recall the efficacy of the flu vaccine from year to year. That's why Sanjay Gupta can go on the news and remind us that his 30% estimate (likely an overestimate) of how well the flu vaccine works is not like past years, the good old days in which the vaccine was 60-70% effective, and not bat an eye
Governor Kate Brown of Oregon signed House Bill 2220 on May 6, 2019 which will allow dentists in that state to administer vaccinations
Fresh fetal tissue is "absolutely essential" for new vaccine research and development, scientist tells congressional hearing
Licorice has a rich and ancient history of use as a medicine, being rooted in Indian, Chinese, Greek and Egyptian traditions, alike. Technically a legume, related to beans and peas, its sweetness results from the presence of glycyrrhizin, a compound 30-50 times sweeter than sugar. This compound is what gave licorice its name, which derives from the Greek word γλυκύρριζα (glukurrhiza), meaning "sweet” (gluku) "root" (rrhiza)

The flu shot does not discriminate: children, the elderly, and everyone in between can suffer detrimental effects from this dangerous vaccine
The pharmaceutical industry is now the most distrusted and poorly regarded industry in the U.S. A mere 27% have a “totally positive” view of the drug industry, while 58% have a “totally negative” view
When people or their loved ones are vaccine-injured, many begin to unravel the unscrupulous world of pharmaceutical influence on our media, government agency leaders and lawmakers. Connecting the dots is a horrifying and enlightening experience, exposing facts to which the general public generally remains oblivious. These revelations weigh heavily when someone makes the decision to permanently change into an “ex-vaxxer.”
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that tens of thousands of people die annually from the flu, but what the public isn’t told is that these numbers come from controversial models that may greatly overestimate, which happens to align with the CDC’s stated aim of using fear marketing to increase demand for flu vaccines.
As more prominent vaccine advocacy organizations are pushing for greater mandatory vaccination laws, a BMJ article asks if these groups are really providing the public with independent information
Last Wednesday the Colorado Board of Health approved a plan that would mandate 90 percent of workers in the health care setting receive flu shots, and would be phased in within 3 years. While the decision sparked a major debate regarding civil rights at the state Capitol, little attention was paid to the question of whether flu shots are effective or not.
The HELP Committee met yesterday to consider what is driving preventable disease outbreaks, but ignored evidence that infectious diseases routinely break out in highly vaccinated communities
For half a century, the medical establishment, including the pharmaceutical industry, has had near zero tolerance towards criticism against its unequivocal failures and medical catastrophes
With flu season rapidly approaching, recommendations for preventatives are everywhere but many are not backed up by science. Can you guess the top five? (Hint: vaccination is not one of them!)
Flu vaccines, according to the best scientific evidence available today, will only work against 10% of the circulating viruses that cause the symptoms of seasonal epidemic influenza. So, do the theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms?
It’s widely known that drinking cranberry juice is helpful for urinary tract infections, but have you ever wondered why this is so? Folk remedies are increasingly validated by science, and so it is that cranberries really are great for infections—and that’s the just the beginning of the storied benefits of this tart, little berry
Similar to the general public, nurses are increasingly refusing dangerous and often ineffective flu shots
Research shows that colostrum may be nature's safe and healthy alternative to flu vaccines.
What can Waldorf School Communities Do in the Face of Vaccine Mandates?
The Flu Vaccine Does Nothing: Listen to the Science, Not the Media
As a country and a society, we’ve never been anywhere close to “herd immunity” through vaccination, but where are all the epidemics? That doesn’t keep vaccine makers from using herd immunity as a weapon to guilt and scare parents. Why are we allowing “mythology to trump science”?
