A study by the American government into the flu shot received little or no attention because the results were not as desired. After tens of years and billions of dollars spent promoting flu shots for the elderly, it turned out that the massive vaccination program did not result in saving lives. The death rate among the elderly even increased considerably.
Increased number of deaths after flue vaccine
The 2005 JAMA study was covered up, but Sharyl Attkisson, a former investigative journalist for CBS, again revealed the investigation in her blog. Sharyl Attkisson says the study emphasizes how these vaccines might kill lives instead of saving them. While the researchers wanted to prove that the pressure on mass flu vaccination would save the world, they were “surprised” that the data did not support their assumption at all. The data actually shows that the number of deaths in the elderly increased after vaccination: 60 percent of people aged 65 and over have an enormously increased risk of death if they get the flu shot.
Sharyl Attkisson writes in her article:“Public health experts long assumed that flu shots were effective in the elderly. But paradoxically, all the studies carried out showed no benefits. Instead of thinking that they, the experts, may be wrong – instead of believing the scientific data – the public health experts assumed that the studies were wrong. After all, flu vaccinations should work, right? ”
Dr. Peter Doshi, a scientist at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, published an article in the British Medical Journal in 2013, in which he claimed that routine flu vaccine recommendation is based on “low-quality studies that do not support claims.” He says there is no evidence that the vaccine reduces the number of deaths among the elderly.
Growing scepticism about flu shots
People are becoming increasingly skeptical about the salutation of the flu vaccine. The degree of doubt is strongly correlated with incidents such as research fraud in the vaccine industry, an industry that makes billions of dollars a year. Often when an article about the dangers of a vaccine comes out, there are people who write to tell about a family member who has been harmed by the vaccine, and the flu vaccine for the elderly in no exception. Their stories are often minimized, but the government pays more compensation for the flu vaccine than any other vaccine. Nevertheless, many elderly people will still get their annual flu shot.
Questions that arise are: do the benefits of getting a flu vaccine outweigh the risks, especially among vulnerable older people? Who benefits if evidence that the vaccine is harmful has been buried? And what would be the motive for inventing proof of damage if none exists? Should the truth not be revealed after careful investigation?
