Study on Flu Vaccines: Claims of Benefits Greatly Exaggerated

It should not be a surprise that people can buy a flu shot at the local supermarket while picking up a quart of milk and chocolate chip cookies. In fact, most foods sold there, along with the majority of cleaning products, cosmetics and other popular items, can impair immune function making one more vulnerable to the flu and other infections.

A new analysis of vaccines against influenza, based on a comprehensive review of data published from 1967 to 2012, has found that claims of benefit have been significantly exaggerated. The report was done by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

The authors found that the evidence for “consistent high-level protection is elusive.” While vaccination was found to provide only modest protection in young healthy adults, they stated that evidence for protection in adults 65 years of age and older, the primary target of flu campaigns, is lacking.”

Reporting on the new study, the British Medical Journal received several letters from practitioners. One English physician stated that, “the vaccine is ‘good enough’ to be worth using as it is…it is not so good enough for us not to be looking for a better vaccine.” An American physician said that, “Vaccines are Big Pharma’s sacred-cash cow. As such, vaccines enjoy the hype and hoopla of media, with no real scrutiny. It’s curious that there is no attention paid to the fact that the exponential growth of vaccines parallels the exponential growth of allergies, autism, cancer, and autoimmune diseases.”
