Of course, 1/2 of doctors in the UK
are refusing to take the fascist swine flu shot, but why?
Perhaps it has something to do with this study showing the entire charade of flu vaccines to be a bunch of horse shat.
Not only are they completely - totally - ineffective, further studies show they could be potentially damaging.
Nonetheless, in 2004, Jackson and three colleagues set out to determine whether the mortality difference between the vaccinated and the
unvaccinated might be caused by a phenomenon known as the “healthy user effect.” They hypothesized that on average, people who get vaccinated are
simply healthier than those who don’t, and thus less liable to die over the short term. People who don’t get vaccinated may be bedridden or
otherwise too sick to go get a shot. They may also be more likely to succumb to flu or any other illness, because they are generally older and sicker.
To test their thesis, Jackson and her colleagues combed through eight years of medical data on more than 72,000 people 65 and older. They looked at
who got flu shots and who didn’t. Then they examined which group’s members were more likely to die of any cause when it was not flu season.
Jackson’s findings showed that outside of flu season, the baseline risk of death among people who did not get vaccinated was approximately 60
percent higher than among those who did, lending support to the hypothesis that on average, healthy people chose to get the vaccine, while the
“frail elderly” didn’t or couldn’t. In fact, the healthy-user effect explained the entire benefit that other researchers were attributing to
flu vaccine, suggesting that the vaccine itself might not reduce mortality at all. Jackson’s papers “are beautiful,” says Lone Simonsen, who is
a professor of global health at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C., and an internationally recognized expert in influenza and vaccine
epidemiology. “They are classic studies in epidemiology, they are so carefully done.”
The results were also so unexpected that many experts simply refused to believe them. Jackson’s papers were turned down for publication in the
top-ranked medical journals. One flu expert who reviewed her studies for the Journal of the American Medical Association wrote, “To accept these
results would be to say that the earth is flat!” When the papers were finally published in 2006, in the less prominent International Journal of
Epidemiology, they were largely ignored by doctors and public-health officials. “The answer I got,” says Jackson, “was not the right
more at link of course.
