The take homehere is that we need to strengthen our immune systems with Vitamin D whichhappens to be commonly deficient throughout the northern lands like
The argument ofthe writer is anti vaccine, which has merit for another reason. Flu vaccines are of doubtful value at best aswe are dealing with a virus and it is apparent few actually benefit. In the meantime we have a commercialinfrastructure beating the drum to sell their yearly fix that have a commercialinterest in having us get the vaccine every year.
As the writerobserves, this is hardly a wise strategy in terms of a robust immune system.
I go a littlefurther. Immunity prospers with broadexposure to the whole range of available pathogens. Today we have effectively a global populationand no creditable pandemic that lasts at all. Thus boosting immunity with vitamin D is a sound strategy to tackle theoccasional flu. If all have highimmunity, then any pathogen is bound to die out.
I personallytake 2000 mgs per day of vitamin D.
Swine flu pandemic outbreaksweeping through
even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year Britain

(NaturalNews) A swine flupandemic is sweeping through
Britaindespite the fact that 70 percent of 's over-65 population wasvaccinated against swine flu last year. This year, that number is nearly thesame -- 68.5% -- but flu vaccine proponents insist that until everyone isvaccinated, the flu will continue to infect people. Britain
What these vaccine advocatesabsolutely will not admit, however, is how many of those whoare sick with the flu this year also got vaccinated last year. This little detail is left out of everymainstream media report on vaccines and the flu.They simply refuse to mention this all-important number, leaving readers toleap to the incorrect conclusion that only those who were not vaccinated get sick with the flu.
Mostinfected patients werepreviously vaccinated
That assumption is false. Infact, of the 450 critical care beds in
that are now occupiedby flu patients, I haveno doubt that most of those infected patients arepeople who received flu vaccines inthe past. England
Such statistics are nevermade available to the public or the press, of course. To release such statisticswould expose the Great Lie of the vaccine industry: That flu vaccines simply don't work on 99 percent of people!
In fact, the people who aremost susceptible to catching the flu are precisely the very same people who getvaccinated. Why is that? Because vaccines weakenthe immune system inthe long run,leaving you more vulnerable to future infections. They deny your immune systemthe opportunity to practice its own adaptive response to invadingmicroorganisms or viruses,thereby causing your immune system to atrophy in the same way that awheelchair-bound person will experience leg muscle atrophy.
The immune system is a lot like a muscle: Use it or loseit!
But flu vaccinesprovide weakened viruses to the immune system (along with otherpreservative chemicals that can be extremely dangerous to neurological health).It's sort of like working out your muscles at the gymbut having your trainer do all the heavy lifting for you. Obviously you're notgoing to have very strong muscles in the end because your body won't need toinvoke a very strong adaptive response.
The same is true withvaccines and the flu: If your body is exposed to weakened flu viruses yearafter year, it gets lazy and weak, and when it one day comes into contact witha full-strength virus circulatingin the wild, it's not in good enough shape to handle the challenge.
At the same time this isgoing on, a person who is vitamin D deficient will also have an alarmingly weak immunesystem response because vitamin D activates the immune system to do its job. Inpeople with extremely low vitamin D levels, even vaccines containing weakenedviruses won't solicit an antibody response. But instead of testing patients for vitamin Ddeficiency and prescribing that with the vaccine, conventionalmedical doctors andcontagious disease authorities robotically urge everyone to just "get multiplevaccine shots" as if following one failed vaccine with yet another failedvaccine will somehow make them both work.
That's idiotic, of course.And the other idiotic thing about all this is that if people had sufficient levels of vitamin D circulating in their blood, they wouldn't need seasonal flu vaccines inthe first place! That's because a strong, healthy immune system with lots ofcirculating vitamin D is universally effective at halting ALL seasonal flustrains, with near 100% success in those with vitamin D levels between 50 - 70(ng/dL).
The three mainreasons behind
's flu pandemic Britain
So the real reason
is suffering a swine flu pandemicright now is actually three-fold: Britain
#1) It's winter in theNorthern Hemisphere, and
is so far north (of the equator) that the people living there aren't currentlygenerating any vitamin D whatsoever. This makes virtually the entireBritish population ridiculouslyvitamin D deficient throughout the winter. Britain
#2) The majority of the British population has been subjected to flu vaccinesin previous years, weakening theirimmune systems and making them more vulnerable to this year's flu strains.
#3) The flu strain itself is so successful in the wild precisely because somany Britons walk around in chronic states of immune suppression (from vitaminD deficiency, chronic stress, poor dietary habits and so on). This creates a"viral breeding ground" which encourages more rapid virus mutationsthat make vaccines obsolete anyway.
The questionyou are not allowed to ask vaccine quacks
The vaccine-pushing quack medical communitybelieves that if they could magically convince 100 percent of the people to getvaccinated, they would have this problem licked. In their own minds, they haveunscientifically convinced themselves that a vaccine equals automatic and fullprotection against a flu virus.
And yet even they won't dare ask this simple question: Of all the people sickfrom the flu who are right now lying in Britain's hospital beds, what percentage were vaccinated against the flu last year or this year?
The answer to that question will expose the outright fraud of the vaccineindustry because the answer is a very large number. No one in the medicalindustry dares ask that question, of course, because they realize that delvinginto the actual re-infection rate of flu vaccine recipientswould expose their quackery and fraud, causing yet more people to lose faith invaccines which are, after all, sold based entirely on misplaced faith andclever propaganda.
The flu vaccine propaganda, of course, demandsthat people never be allowed to collide with the scientific facts about howmany people who are vaccinated against the flu still catch the flu anyway. (The flu re-infection rate.) That's why you will NEVER see anhonest answer to this question released by hospitals, vaccine companies orvaccine-pushing doctors.
Keep taking your flu jabs, everybody. But don't ask whether they actually work,because that question isn't allowed to be asked in the cult of medicine thatdominates the sick-care landscape around the world today.
We wouldn't want actual science to interfere with a really profitable con jobnow, would we?
