You can control which links you post, Winnipeg dummy, or do your past vaccinations cause your hands to type in things that your excuse for a brain doesn't want them to? On average about 50% of your links don't work, and the other 50% are from quack sources, and definitely not peer reviewed.
Your memory is failing again. You seem to have forgotten all those links I posted, which you dismissed as "junk science" without giving any scientific reasons for doing so. Nice try (well pathetic actually), but you fail yet again Winnipeg dummy.

Don't want the flu vaccine, don't get it. No one forces anyone to get the vaccine. It is a choice. But no one shoud be scare tactic into a choice, you're doing the very same thing you accuse your Government of doing! LOL!
For some it's not a very good choice considering if you don't, even though you are healthy, you might have to wear a mask all day.

Regardless of the flu vaccine, do you know how many deaths occurred so far during the 2012/13 flu season? Of those who didn't get the flu vaccine? Maybe you can better explain how to Get plenty of rest, Stay hydrated, Eat whole foods (7-10 servings organic fruit and vegetables),Plenty of Vitamin D!
Wash your hands to Pediatrics??!!!
Why don't you tell us, can't you research? Did the vaccines make you forget things? When I grew up, never got the flu shot, and I got sick a few times, BIG DEAL!

I see you're predictable as well, as all anti vaxxers are. News flash. I never had a flu vaccine but once and why? Because it's a choice! No one forces you to get the vaccine so all your hype is just that; hype with unfounded scare tactics. I already know how many have died from the flu. Clearly you ignore those facts as well as those stats of how many pregnant women and children get the flu vaccine to support your claim. Also, your advice to avoid getting the flu doesn't work. All you're doing is supporting the income to supplements and organic industries.

"forces" means if where I work, I refuse to put chemicals in my body to prevent being sick for a few days means even when I'm not sick, I must wear a face mask all day at work? Doctors at Hospitals and those working for insurance companies will be fired for saying they don't recommend the vaccine. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/pdf/freeresources/upda...

The Government pushes the flu vaccine on pregnant women, they scare them into getting the chemicals. Is autism going down? I would say a great majority are getting the vaccine.

The CDC and all other mainstream organizations actively promote the flu shot for all pregnant women. In fact, the CDC states,“The flu shot is safe for pregnant women.”

Another study found that maternal inflammation during pregnancy increased the risk of autism being diagnosed in the child.
The scientists found that elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) was correlated with childhood autism risk. CRP can be ordered in a blood test. It is a marker of inflammation. Many things can raise CRP levels including infections, injuries and autoimmune conditions. The authors concluded that “…maternal inflammation may have significant role in autism (development).”

Now, let’ go back to the flu vaccine. All vaccines, the flu vaccine included, provoke an inflammatory response in the body. In fact, there are many substances added to vaccines in order to provoke an inflammatory response. The idea is that a robust inflammatory response will provoke the immune system to respond to the vaccine and produce antibodies.

Does the flu vaccine promote inflammation? You bet it does. The flu vaccine was found to cause a significant increase in CRP after vaccination.

Is the flu vaccine effective at preventing the flu? The answer is easy—‘No’.

At best, the flu vaccine is 17% effective at preventing the flu.

Let me sum this up: the flu vaccine contains toxic substances like mercury, provokes inflammation and is not very effective. Should a pregnant woman get a flu vaccine? I think the answer is clear—no. Should anyone ever get a flu vaccine? Well, if it doesn’t work for the vast majority that get it and it contains toxic substances, the answer is clear—no.

Final Thoughts

The Flu vaccine has never been shown to significantly prevent a large percentage of the population from contracting the flu. We waste too much money on ineffective therapies, the flu vaccine being a perfect case in point. We would do better to study natural therapies that augment the functioning of the immune system.

Nice try with the name change. Bummer for 'morons' like you, they can test which strain if any of flu you have.
There are two categories of genes that influence whether a person develops a disease:(1) risk genes and (2) deterministic genes. Researchers have identified Alzheimer's genes in both categories.

Bummer for both your claims.

Many colds are flu-like and morons like friend can't tell the difference. But it has been said that consecutive flu shots lead to alzheimers, and I'm not joining that club.

This would have nothing to do with vaccines or the flu vaccine.
Mothers who actually contracted the flu had a higher risk of autism. The study looked at 97,000 mothers of children born between 1997 and 2003. The flu was linked to a twofold increase while those with fevers longer than a week had a threefold increase of risk.

So the Winnipeg dummy thinks that technical(?) words like "crap", "garbage", "stool", "excrement" and "vomit" constitute valid scientific reasons for dismissing genuine peer reviewed studies as "junk science". Well that just about proves beyond any doubt that his mental capacity is in sharp decline, and hasn't far to go before reaching rock bottom, in other words, him being totally brain dead. It must be something to do with all those 'nasty' vaccinations he had.LOL

False. Insurance companies don't often cover autism, period but many do without having to change laws. They often do cover any illness, including seizures. Another unfounded scare tactic. I also am not the one who get's all my comments deleted. Winnipeg is so we all know who the true troll is. And if I am paid, that would mean Winnipeg is then paid by Wakefield, McCarthy, Mercola and tenpenny.

You must be talking from your rear end again. I don't use pot or dope and have never posted that I do. Are you so afraid of getting the flu since you live in a garbage dump of Nevada that you don't mind putting Mercury and other chemicals in your body? You scared bro? What war? Is that how you measure a person asking them what they did in a war? I had a bro killed in Nam....

Was that the Government study? I'm sick of seeing studies from the CDC. I tend to not believe what the Government says is good for me. it always comes with a money trail. In our country it has an agenda called ObamaCare. When there is no epidemic of the flu, why are we being told to take the needle and smile. What people do not know is that flu vaccines are nearly useless in preventing flu, they will cause the flu, and they often result in nervous system damage that can take years for the body to repair. Other nations chuckle at Americans’ infatuation with the flu vaccine. The joke would indeed be funny, if it weren’t for the damaging effects caused by the vaccine.

Here is a list of the most common side effects of the flu vaccine as stated by the CDC — fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and headache. Sound familiar?

So what are your valid scientific reasons for dismissing genuine peer reviewed studies as "junk science"? We are all waiting with baited breath to hear what you have to say. Sorry I forgot, you're already brain dead, so all we can expect is a few more DUHs.

All he has is some bogus scare of someone who cant read a study well. They must had missed the part
"positive FDG PET findings are not specific for cancer and can also be found in inflammatory and infectious lesions. This can lead to false-positive findings in tumor patients" Our of 269 patients, the study only included 58. What this study Winnipeg 'shared' only shows medical tests are not 100 percent perfect for results and they even state in the study "The identification of pitfalls is crucial for FDG PET/CT". And of course since the source of funding is such a HUGE deal to some, this study didn't even reveal that.

So no, they found no smoking gun for Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The only smoking gun is those just shot down for not being able to read a study and attempting to scare people. And ALLLLLLL those added vaccine since 1975 to 2007 is a bogus scare as well. Next time they should refresh themselves on which and when vaccines contain adjuvants.

Dr Oz refuses to have his kids vaccinated.

http://www.naturalnews.com/035624_Russell_Bla...

Dr. Blaylock adds that there may be many long-term harmful effects of vaccinations, especially on the brain.
These effects include:

A highly stressed immune system unable to combat infections and cancer
The accumulation of free radicals in the body, which can cause “bystander injuries” and immune system dysfunction
Advanced aging and general debilitation
The onset of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, which are now afflicting Americans at ever younger ages

Despite growing scientific evidence of the terrible health effects of overvaccination, pharmaceutical companies and other “big medicine” lobbyists continue to push for many more mandatory vaccinations of children and adults.
