CDC FINALLY Admits to Flu-Shot Failure

leave a comment »

The CDC has just issued one of its most startling confessions ever: The flu shot DOESN’T WORK.

The agency says this year’s dominant strain has mutated to evade the vaccine they’ve been pushing on everyone all season long. More than half the viruses tested by the CDC are strains NOT covered by the shot.

Many of them are a version of the H3N2 strain, which has proven to be deadlier than most in the past.

That’s right, the vaccine is LESS effective, and the flu is MORE deadly.

If you’re tempted to call that the most incompetent and ineffective approach to public health ever, I’ve got news for you.

The CDC isn’t done yet.

They’ve cooked up two pieces of advice, and one’s worse than the other.

First, they’re urging all Americans to get flu shots anyway. Yes, it doesn’t work… but go ahead and roll up your sleeve.

And second, they’re urging Americans to make sure they rush out and get Tamiflu the moment they get sick.

You read that right. Tamiflu — the very drug that’s repeatedly proven to do zip against flu. It’s so futile that a major analysis of 46 studies finds that, at best, Tamiflu will cut a 7-day battle with the flu down to 6.3 days.

And that’s assuming you can even trust those studies — because Roche, the maker of Tamiflu, has been caught red-handed hiding data on this drug.

For all we know, the real numbers might be even worse.

So we have a vaccine that won’t prevent the disease, and a drug proven not to cure it — and the CDC is urging you to take both.

Whatever happened to evidence-based medicine?

Trust the government with your health?

Many drugs just do nothing and even have side effects.

Over and over again, the government has approved drugs with horrible side effects even death.

Trusting the government with your loved ones health is like playing russian roulette.

Public Restroom Bacteria Spreader

leave a comment »

Most of us happily use jet air hand dryers, convinced they are the best way to get our hands dry without having to worry about those gross germs lurking on every surface in a public bathroom.

Turns out nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, every single time you press the button on one of those things it’s like shooting germs out of a cannon.

Researchers at UK’s University of Leeds tested bacterial contamination with the use of paper towels, warm air dryers, and jet air dryers. To get a bacteria reading, researchers covered volunteers’ hands with a bacteria called lactobacilli (don’t worry — it’s not harmful).

And once they hit the “on” button, that bacteria was flying everywhere, being breathed in by everyone within a few feet. And this is healthy bacteria, mind you — imagine what these hand dryers are doing with the nasty waste that’s REALLY on your hands.

Bacterial counts were nearly five times higher with the jet dryer compared to the warm air dryer. But the real winner was the humble paper towel. Jet drying bacteria counts were a staggering 27 times higher than drying your hands the old-fashioned way.

The solution here is simple. Wash your hands with plain old soap and warm water. And skip those high-tech hand dryers and towel dry them instead.

Your health is being sacrificed to save a few dollars.
