How you can greatly cut your chance of getting the flu (vitamin D just twice a month)


Fact: People who are low on vitamin D have weak immune systems


The group with >38 ng of vitamin D was 2X less likely to get a viral infection (from the previous reference)

Nice graph from "More Viral Infections if vitamin D deficient- June 2010"


Fact: People who are obese are very low on vitamin D (vicious cycle)


Vaccine Problems


800 IU vitamin D is much better than a vaccine, and 2000 IU vitamin D is far better

Mercola UK Govt decides children should not have flu vaccine Jan 17, 2011


Suite 101 Jan 22, 2011

“According to the Cochrane Foundation, over 200 viruses cause influenza and flu-like symptoms such as headaches, runny nose, aches and pains, fever, and coughs. They rarely lead to serious illness or death, and providing a single flu vaccine to protect against these viruses is impossible.

The Cochrane study found that in the highly unlikely scenario of the vaccine matching the predominant flu strains circulating that season, one in a hundred people who got the flu shot developed flu symptoms compared to two in a hundred who did not. Hardly a ringing endorsement for the benefits of the vaccine!”

Not good enough results from the 75 studies to make a recommendation for the vaccine


The following graph from Cochrane shows that vaccinating more people does NOT decrease the rate of flu attacks.

If more vaccination decreased flu attacks, the data from around the world would have followed the (added) pink line.
Many observers comment that the flu vaccine is not much better than a placebo.

Natural News A scientific look at flu season vaccines Sept 2010.

“Flu season shots, you see, simply don't work on 99 out of 100 people”.
“In other words, you would have to vaccinate 100 people to reduce the number of people showing influenza symptoms by just one.
The vaccine makes no difference at all for ninety-nine percent of the people vaccinated!”


Influenza vaccines only prevent the flu in 1.5 out of 100 adults (not 60% as you've been told). Natural News Oct 2011

During the past decade, the US govt has increased the categories of people who are supposed to get a Flu shot.
