Welcome to KnowYourThyroid.
Today, I have an article on the mercury in flu shots. This article
was posted by Dr. Brownstein, who is always looking out for our health. FYI: there is a mercury free flu shot. Great news for those who are required by their jobs to get the flu shot but don’t want risk adding more mercury to their bodies.
Flu Vaccine Contains Toxic Levels of Mercury
My colleague Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, tested the flu vaccine for its mercury content.(1) Using state-of-the-art ICP-MS, Adams documented that mercury in the Flulaval vaccine was extremely high at 51 parts per million–25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water as set by the Environmental Protection Agency. (2)
Adams reported that the mercury levels in the flu vaccine were higher than anything he has ever tested, including tuna and other ocean fish.
Keep in mind that an injection of the flu vaccine guarantees that 100% of the mercury in it is absorbed since it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract.
Mercury is one of the most poisonous substances known to mankind. For over twenty years, I have been testing nearly every patient seen in my office for heavy metal contamination. Unfortunately, mercury toxicity is alive and well in our modern world. I have found that over 80% of my patients, both healthy and sick, have mercury toxicity.
The most common sources for mercury are from mercury fillings in the teeth and the ingestion of fish. It is amazing to me that the U.S. Government can place limits on the amount of fish a pregnant woman can eat but still tell her to get a flu shot even though it is contaminated with high levels of mercury.
There are zero studies showing the flu shot is safe or effective for pregnant women. Zero. In fact, in the package insert of the Flulaval vaccine it states, “Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children.” And, of course, the flu vaccine is recommended for children even though there are no studies showing it is efficacious or safe in children.
Folks, over the years I have written to you about the inadequacy of the flu vaccine. Not only does it fail to prevent the flu, it contains toxic substances such as mercury. Toxic substances like mercury should never be injected in any living being.
My advice: Just say “no” to the flu vaccine.
