This is from the Hallelujah Acres newsletter I read this morning. Especially good to know this time of year when doctors and even supermarkets are "advertising" flu shots.

ARE FLU SHOTS SAFE EVEN IF THEY CONTAIN NO MERCURY?
Dr. Blaylock, in the June 2008 issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report, available by subscription only, by calling 1.800.485.4350, was asked the following question:
“My doctor orders flu shots for me supposedly containing no mercury. I have read the vaccine label and there is no mention of thimerosol [mercury]. Do you think this could be true?”
“Answer: While the mercury is dangerous and accumulates in the brain and other tissues and organs, the vaccine itself is dangerous. This is especially true in older individuals. This is because the chronic immune stimulation caused by the vaccine also activates the brain’s immune system, and this can accelerate and increase one’s risk of developing one of the neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease. As I explain in an article appearing in the Journal Medical Veritas, there is compelling evidence that yearly flu vaccines, especially combined with other vaccines being recommended for older people, can trigger depression, anxiety, and even suicide. . . It is also important to appreciate that several large studies have shown just how ineffective the flu vaccine is for preventing the flu, flu complications, or flu-related deaths.”
(EDITORS NOTE: In a previous Blaylock report, Dr. Blaylock reported that if a senior citizen receives a flu shot containing thimerosol (mercury) for 10 consecutive years, they increase their chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 1,000 percent.)
