That Annual Flu Shot Might Be Putting Your Brain at Risk

A new study, published by scientists from Bournemouth University in England and in the journal Surgical Neurology International, shows that brain diseases, including dementia and Alzheimer’s, are affecting people at a younger and younger age. This problem has progressed so quickly that the scientists conducting this investigation believe that environmental factors must —  at least in part — be to blame.

The lead scientist believes that this huge increase in such a short time must mean that more than just aging is at work here. The scientists involved in this study compared the rates of brain diseases from 1989 until 2010 in 21 Western countries. This study found that the average age for the onset of dementia was 10 years earlier than it had been in 1989. Also, deaths from neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, had increased significantly for those between the ages of 55 and 74. For those over the age of 75, the death rate almost doubled.

Although these changes were seen in all 21 countries, the country that fared the worst was the U.S.  In the U.S., the death rates from neurological disease in men older than 74 tripled, and for women, the death rate was five-fold. For the first time, more elderly women in America are dying from neurological diseases than from cancer.

Is it possible that Americans’ exposure to mercury from vaccines play a role in the ever-increasing rates of the early onset of neurological diseases like dementia? Although mercury-containing preservatives, such as Thimerosal, were used in almost all childhood vaccines until 2001, mercury is still one of the ingredients used in adult vaccines, such as the pneumonia vaccine. It’s also found in flu shots, which are given to both children and adults.

The Journal of Alzheimer’s disease published a study in 2010 where researchers reviewed 100 clinical and experimental studies that looked into the effects mercury had human and animal cells. In this review of available studies, scientists found that long term exposure to mercury produced many of the same changes in the brain that are seen in Alzheimer’s, including memory problems, cognitive functions, and general confusion.

    VacHUcine Manufacturers are shielded from liability for their poisonous drugs called vaccines. Vaccination requires informed consent from patients. Forced vaccinations are a violation of the first Amendment to the American Constitution. Americans shouldcarry a card which states that if they are vaccinated without their consent the allopathic quack who performs this will be held criminally and civilly liable for VIOLATION OF THE INTEGRITY OF THE HUMAN BODY.

    Informedconsent violation is the legal method to open the legal door to sue allopathic criminals who are under the misconception that they can hidebehind the Vaccine Compensation Fraud. a 2013 US Supreme Court decisionin a DUI case acknowledged that an accused did not have to submit to providing a blood sample (without a Court Order). Vaccinations are not mandatory in Canada, but many fraudulent allopathic doctors and others routinely wrongly tell people that their children must be vaccinated as apre-condition to entering school. In US many states have half-baked vaccine exemptions but most people are not aware that in most cases exemptions (religious and/or personal) can be invoked.

    It’stime to prosecute, convict and send allopathic doctors to PRISON FOR THEIR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. The First Amendment and the principle of INFORMED CONSENT trumps the criminal Vaccination “Compensation” legislation. The solution is a class-action by injured victims injured by vaccines or ANY OTHER DRUGS taken against allopathic vaccine surgeons.

    Let’s jail just one allopathic doctor for criminal fraud– 10 more doctors will die from fright and not have to commit suicide.-this will send a strong message to Pig Pharma that their days of medical crimes are numbered. These criminals need to be shown legally that they cannot hide under the skirts of Pig Pharma- and the Vaccine Kangaroo Court. the fFirst Amendment will ultimately prevail. New legislation is not the answer- prisons is.

    Whose annual flu shot? I’ve never had one in my (long!) life.

  • This article is the biggest load of misleading crap I’ve ever read. THe first study mentioned NOTHING about vaccines. As for flu shot ingredients, volume is everything. Read people.

    Don’t worry, in another week or two NaturalOn will print an article telling us all how great the flu shot is. I’ve never seen a place that prints more contradictions from story to story than this place.
