Part 2 of 3 in a discussion of the immune system. This episode focuses on debunking the flu shot and talking about what really makes you sick and how to be well.

The flu shot has mercury (mercury-free versions are loaded with aluminum) both of which are neurotoxins. Problem is that flu vaccination is terrible at actually predicting the flu strains out there on any given "flu season."

The Cochrane Database Review, has issued no less than five reports between 2006 and 2010, all of which debunk the myth that flu vaccinations are "the most effective flu prevention method" available. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin. 

Efficacy and effectiveness of influenza vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Lancet Infect Dis. 2012 Jan;12(1):36-44. doi: 10.1016/S1473-3099(11)70295-X. Epub 2011 Oct 25. 

Don’t get the flu shot if you already have the flu! It does not treat the flu.
