This is an article originally found on http://healthtip.hacres.com/index.php/2013/01/15/myth-vaccinations-prevent-sickness/, and I am reposting it here because it is very applicable in the current “vaccinate everything that moves” craze.
Recent news reports say that the flu vaccine for the winter of 2012-2013 is “outstandingly protective” with only a 60% potential of protecting one from the flu if they receive the vaccine. If their numbers are accurate, is it worth the potential harm the vaccine can do for such limited protection?
Neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock addresses this issue in a very interesting article in the January 2013 issue of his monthlyBlaylock Report, titled “Six Medical Myths That Can Threaten Your Life.”
I want to share some of the highlights from Myth #4 of Dr. Blaylock’s report titled “Vaccines Prevent Sickness.” Dr. Blaylock begins the article by talking about the long lines of people in some places waiting to get their flu shots. The article continues with him telling us that these poor people were standing for hours to receive something more dangerous than the flu: “a flu vaccine.”
He then goes on to say the ingredients in these vaccines “can harm the brain and lead to brain deterioration.”
Dr. Blaylock states the reason the vaccines damage the brain is because many of these vaccines “contain a full dose of mercury as well as brain-damaging aluminum.”He continues, “. . . in the vast majority of people, the flu vaccine doesn’t work. And for some it increases their risk of becoming seriously ill . . . There is no evidence any flu vaccine is effective.”
The article tells of a study in theAnnals of Internal Medicinethat looked at the death rates from flu before the flu vaccine program and after. It found that, despite massive inoculations of the elderly, incidence of flu deaths had not changed.
Then Dr. Blaylock turns his attention to the children: “A study of childhood vaccines found the same thing… many of the vaccines themselves are dangerous. The Hib vaccine . . . can actually make it more likely that your child will develop meningitis . . . The pertussis vaccine (DTaP and DPT) are associated with high incidence of brain injury, including seizures.”
“Studies have shown that the damage can continue for years,” writes Dr. Blaylock, “and explains the 600 percent increase in autism since the early 1980’s. If we include all developmental problems of the brain (learning, memory, behavior, and language problems) the numbers are much higher. “
The above information from Dr. Blaylock only reinforces we at Hallelujah Acres have been sharing in these Health Tips for many years: vaccines are dangerous. In December 2008, for example, I shared some excerpts from Dr. Dan Chestnut’s book “Lying With Authority”regarding vaccinations and brain inflammation. Here is some of what he writes in his book . . .
Vaccinations and Brain Inflammation
“A large number of studies have shown that when you vaccinate an animal, inflammatory chemicals increase dramatically in the brain. This creates immune system stimulation. The main immune cells in the brain are called microglia. After a vaccination, they become activated and move around rapidly as if signaled to fight an invading enemy. In so doing, a number of very harmful chemicals are releasedincluding glutamates, cytokines, and free radicals . . .
“The end result is days or weeks of brain inflammation resembling a virus infection(with symptoms) such as restlessness, irritability, insomnia, fatigue, and brain fog. A second phase ofdepression can occur. It has been shown that these symptoms are due to high levels of inflammatory chemicals coming from the microglia activity . . . This puts the immune system of the brain at high alert and the brain is far more likely to erupt into even more over-activity if other stimulations occur.
“Why vaccines cause this is due to a combination of factors:adjuvants in the vaccine, such as aluminum, MSG, and mercury, which make the immune system react more intensely. Studies have shown that the adjuvants from a single vaccine can cause immune over-activation for as long as two years. This is very destructive to the brain and can lead to cell deathand even shrinkage of the brain while symptoms can include depression, seizures, autism, and other brain dysfunction.
Should Adults Receive Annual Flu Shots?
Dr. Chestnut continues, “It is estimated that a flu vaccine injection yearly for five years running increases the chance for Alzheimer’s by at least 1000%.Flu vaccine can also cause anxiety and depression preceded by brain inflammation especially in the elderly who have high suicide rates.
“In spite of these known risks with vaccines, there is an all-out campaign by public health officials and doctors to vaccinate elderly people, not only with the flu vaccine, but with a growing number of new vaccines. Many people report that flu shots give them the flu. In fact, people die from flu vaccine. When the elderly die after getting a flu shot, especially if months later, it is rarely blamed on the flu vaccine. Deaths and disability from flu vaccine far exceed deaths from the flu . . .
“Flu vaccines are only effective in 30% to 40% of people who take themand even that is questionable. There has never been strong evidence of fewer hospitalizations or decreased death rate from taking flu vaccines. This is another example of fact distortion by authority in the effort to sell more flu vaccine.
Flu vaccine during pregnancy can dramatically increase the risk for autism and schizophrenia.Most flu vaccines contain mercury (thimerosal) and aluminum and could contain viral fragments. It could cause multiple side effects in the brain including paralysis, hearing loss, vertigo, and brain irritability.
“Flu vaccine over-stimulates the immune system, especially the brain. In fact, it can suppress immunity for weeks after receiving the vaccine. In people who die from flu vaccine, and there certainly are a number every year, the actual cause of death has often been reported as due to some other type of disease, but in reality, their immune systems have been depressed, allowing other diseases to become more deadly.”
Should Children Receive Annual Flu Shots?
Here is what Dr. Chestnut has to say about the value of flu shots for children:
“If children receive flu vaccine, it can be even more deadlybecause children are more sensitive to mercury and to the effects of depressed immunity. Flu vaccine in children causes an increased incidence in asthma by 200%. This has caused sudden memory loss in children and adults immediately after receiving flu vaccine . . .
“Very young babiesare at extremely high risk because their brains are immature; blood brain barriers are ‘leaky’ and more sensitive to toxins. In the first two years of life, infants may receive 22 vaccines with as many as nine shots in one office visit. Many doctors feel this is criminal . . .
“Nasal flu vaccines are even worsebecause they introduce a live virus into the nasal mucous membranes only a few inches from the brain where viruses can potentially travel upward via the olfactory (smell) nerves . . .
Vaccines and Autism“The evidence is overwhelming,” says Dr. Chestnut, “Thimerosal and possibly other ingredients (in flu vaccines) can cause autism.” He writes further:
“On February 25, 2008 an announcement came that even the Court of Federal Claims (the vaccine court) agrees . . . a family was awarded compensation from (the) government (Dept. of Health & Human Services via US Assistant Attorney General Peter Keisler) in the case of a little 18-month-old girl who immediately began a downhill neurologic horror shortly after receiving vaccines for 9 diseases in one visit to the doctor’s office. Two of the vaccines contained thimerosal.
“It was autism and much more, labeled by experts as regressive encephalopathy triggered by thimerosal in the vaccines. The child is permanently brain damaged. I saw nothing in the major media about this case. Rather strange isn’t it? The evidence has been there for decades. Thus far, 2000 people have received over $2 billion in compensation (our tax money) for thimerosal vaccine injuries.
“Their little girl’s case was profound and obvious. The more common scenario is the thousands who may have various types of brain damage which are not so severe and not so obvious: the ones which come on more slowly, several months or years later like ‘mild autism’ or ‘mild ADHD’ or some mixture of mental or behavioral abnormalities.
“What a lot of people don’t understand . . . is that there can be several factors at work, not just mercury. Mercury is a deadly toxin but other factors can render it even more deadly . . . We never know which wicked mixtures [of toxic substances in vaccines] in combination may be producing neurologic disease . . . Medical ‘authorities’ would have you believe that certain diseases are clear-cut single events, black and white. The truth is that there are grey zones of disease which are hard to categorize.
“Vaccines aren’t just prone to produce autism; they have the potential to produce a variety of brain damage syndromes, mild to severe, depending on several factors embodied within the genetic + nutritional + environmental variables. Cleverly worded distortions in official press releases illustrate simply more ways that ‘lying with authority’ can fool you.”

Vaccines and Mumps
In a very interesting report, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) reveals that an astounding97% of children affected by a mumps outbreak in 2009 had already been vaccinated for the condition with the MMR vaccine. The report suggests that unvaccinated individuals actually had the highest levels of immune protection during the outbreak.
The Bible says:
“The life of the flesh is in the blood”(Leviticus 17:11)
The truth of that Biblical statement was clearly confirmed when the first President of these United States, George Washington, had his blood drained from his body. Called “bloodletting” by the medical doctors of that day, it was in an effort to arrest what appeared to be a viral infection. This bloodletting caused his death!
The Bible also tells us…
“Keep [protect] thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)
May I take the liberty to expand on that thought by saying, “Keep [protect] thy body with all diligence; for it is the sustainer of life.”
George Washington’s blood was not‘protected’but rather drained from his body, causing death. Fortunately, we no longer believe in bloodletting. In its place, we have a more insidious means of destroying life, it is called vaccinations. And just as we need to ‘protect’ our heart from toxic thoughts, we need to ‘protect’ our blood and our children’s blood from the toxic substances found in vaccines.
It may surprise you to learn that vaccines can contain many toxic substances including but not limited to:
- Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
- Phenol (a disinfectant dye)
- Benzethonium chloride (a disinfectant)
- Formaldehyde (a preservative and disinfectant)
- Aluminum (another known neuro-toxin)
Never forget, vaccine manufacturers want to sell more vaccines because that is how they make their money. Unfortunately, there is a revolving door between the policymakers who determine the vaccine schedule and the pharmaceutical companies who make the vaccines.
Some years ago, Rhonda and this editor spent the afternoon with a young couple who had been following The Hallelujah Diet for many years. They have 4 children, ages 1 to 9. Mother went through each of the 4 pregnancies on The Hallelujah Diet with no complications.
Each child was born easily, nursed for at least the first year, and none of them have ever had more than a runny nose or slight fever during teething. Their skin is beautiful, their dispositions great, they are each lean but not skinny, extremely smart, full of energy, but well controlled and disciplined. They are also being home-schooled. None of them had every received a vaccination.
Might their numbers increase!
And for those working in the health care industry, there are new concerns; some hospitals require employees to receive a flu shot or be fired.
A Fox News article entitledIndiana Hospital Fires 8 Workers Who Refused Flu Shot, reports that “Flu shots are now mandatory for anyone who regularly enters the hospital including all medical staff, paid employees, students, vendors and volunteers.”
Though the staff “had the option under the new policy of filing medical or religious exemptions from the vaccination, [four employees] hired an attorney to write their exemptions, (and) the hospital rejected their exemption applications.” Their only option was to allow the toxic vaccination that could bring serious harm to their bodies or lose their job.
“Joyce Gingerich, who was fired from her job as an oncology nurse in IU for refusing to get a flu shot, said: ‘I knew that I could not compromise my personal belief system for a job.’ She had worked at the hospital since 1987.
And so it goes. Under the new Affordable Care Act, don’t be surprised if in the future senior citizens who refuse to get the flu vaccine lose their Social Security checks, Medicare coverage, driver’s licenses, and more.
Oh for the good ol’ days when America was the “Land of the free and the home of the brave.”
That’s it for this time. Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high, we will return for another issue of the Hallelujah Acres Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share this Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
