February 5, 2018 - Flu Vaccine Fails 99% in New Cochrane Review -
"For over 20 years, I have been writing and lecturing about how the flu vaccine fails nearly all who get it. I have written about the failure of the flu vaccine in past blog posts and in my newsletter, Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health.
Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers in more than 130 countries who strive to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of (interest). They do not take Big Pharma money. Therefore, their studies deserve attention when they are released.
On February 1, 2018, the Cochrane group released its latest findings on the flu vaccine. [i] The scientists studied randomized, controlled trials comparing the flu vaccine with placebo or no intervention. They included 52 clinical trials of over 80,000 people assessing the safety and effectiveness of flu vaccines in healthy adults. The studies were conducted between 1969 and 2009.
The authors found that flu vaccines probably reduced influenzas in healthy adults from 2.3% without vaccination to 0.9% with.
That means that the difference between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated is 1.4% or 0.014. Therefore, 71 people would need to be treated with the flu vaccine to prevent one case (1/1.4%). In other words, the flu vaccine did nothing for 70 out of 71 who received it. That means this study found the flu vaccine failed 99% (71/72).
There was more bad news for the flu vaccine in this study. The flu vaccine is touted as decreasing the risk of hospitalizations from the flu. I’m not sure how that happens since the vaccine has never been shown to be very effective against preventing the flu. In this study they found the risk of hospitalization in those that received the flu vaccine declined from 14.7% to 14.1%. That is a 0.6% decline. That means the flu vaccine fails over 99% (165/166) in preventing hospitalizations. Furthermore, the independent researchers found the flu vaccine “…may lead to little or no small reduction in days off work.” To make matter worse, the flu vaccine was shown to cause an increase in fever from 1.5% to 2.3%. Oy vey.
Why would anyone get a flu vaccine when it fails 99% who receive it?
Why would any physician prescribe a therapy, which is associated with serious adverse effects, that fails 99% who receive it?
Why are health care workers forced to receive a flu vaccine when it is consistently shown to fail nearly 99% who get them? And, there is not a single well-done study showing that vaccinating health care workers with the flu vaccine protects against the spread of flu.
Folks, the flu vaccine is a disaster. I can understand why President Trump does not get the flu shot. I cannot understand why anyone would allow themselves to be injected with a failed flu vaccine."

I have never gotten a flu shot and I don't get the flu. Instead I induce a sweat a couple times a week (presently with a hot bath).

Comment after Dr. B's new article:
Thank you so very much Dr. B!
I wish I had the funds necessary to launch a mass-media educational campaign featuring you and all that you share here!
1st reference link to the Google Patents page has “Legal Events” listed at the very bottom that may be worth looking into.
God Bless You All The Way Dr. B!
March 26, 2018 - "The Failure of the Flu Vaccine" By: Carolyn Dean MD ND
"How To Build A Better Flu Vaccine is the title of an article on one of the many news sites on the Internet. My answer is – please don’t bother. In my blog Flu Vaccines Don’t Work I reported that the effectiveness of the flu vaccine was somewhere between 4-6%! In fact, every year the flu vaccine turns out to be less and less effective.
Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting the outcome to change. How many decades have drug company scientists tried to perfect the flu vaccine and failed every time?
On top of the vaccine not working, we’re also given false information. If you Google '2017-2018 flu season' you are hit with scary headlines that tell you to be very afraid of the flu, to get vaccinated, and to take antiviral medications. The fear instilled by the media who think they are 'warning the public' is enough to make you sick because they have no real solutions!
Other headlines claim that this season’s flu shots are less effective than usual. I’ve found reports claiming anywhere from 17-36% effectiveness, which is an impossibly wide margin. I think the effectiveness is likely only 4-6% as I mentioned earlier. After all, I don’t think all the people that get the flu have blood tests to determine which strain it is. I don’t think they are interviewed to see if they already had the flu shot. Are they differentiating viral flu infection from bacterial lung infection, which can be more deadly. Also, the elderly and the very young are going to be more susceptible to complications and some may die. But it’s quite impossible to say that the flu vaccine could have prevented those deaths.
Of course, my thoughts about preventing the flu turn to boosting the structure and function of your body, including your immune system. Instead of repeating all that information here, you can read my blog Cold & Flu Strategies to see what I recommend from my Future Health Now Encyclopedia.

Comment at Dr. Brownstein's Blog:
I think this is possibly the best article on this subject matter to date, Dr. B!
Taking the CDC’s own statement and analyzing it line by line is an excellent example of critical thinking and the right use of mental forces! Now if only every American could do the same kind of thinking (what a concept)! The power of reasoning plus access to the right data can make a difference. Thank you for sharing both these “gifts” with us!

Using Bicarbonate Against the Swine Flu
June 22, 2018 -
"Flu season is now officially over but here’s something that will affect hospital workers in the fall. In Nov 2017 I wrote that 'Flu Vaccines Don’t Work' but in spite of them not being able to prevent the flu 'More Hospitals Requiring Influenza Vaccine for Workers.' Let that sink in for a while and then follow the lack of logic in allopathetic medicine, which claims it practices science-based medicine.
The science behind flu vaccines not working is presented in my Nov 2017 blog. They can’t work because 'the method of culturing influenza viruses inactivates them' and the author of that study admits that 'flu vaccine propaganda is largely false, describing how the goal of flu shot immunization has still not been achieved.' ..."
