Could vitamin D work better than influenza vaccine?

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its flu message on its website on Oct 19 to promote use of influenza vaccine and get ready for the 2010-2011 flu season.

In the meantime, some medical researchers suggest people should take high doses of vitamin D in winter to have additional protection because flu vaccine is not as effective as thought.

The CDC said right now flu activity is low, but everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated even if they received a seasonal or 2009 H1N1 vaccine last year.

According to the agency, the influenza vaccine for 2010 to 2011 season has been updated to include three flu viruses including H1N1, which media reports have said will not be a pandemic in the near future to say the least.

Children, pregnant women, elderly people and those whose immunity such as HIV, cancer patients has been compromised are considered at high risk for flu complications.

At, the first message that shows up on the website is for pregnant women. It says "Protect Yourself and Your Baby Get A flu shot." also reminds consumers that other measures like washing hands need to be taken to prevent influenza.

One important preventative measure, taking vitamin D3 to boost innate immunity against influenza, was not mentioned on both and Recent evidence is convincing that taking high doses of vitamin D can highly effectively prevent flu including H1N1 the swine flu.

Lapinsky S.E. in April, 2010 published a study in Critical Care Medicine saying that pregnant women and immunosupressed patients are at increased risk of severe A (H1N1) influenza.

To respond to Lapinsky's findings, Dr. William B. Grant, PhD, Sunlight, Nutrition, and Health Research Center (SUNARC) in San Francisco, CA and John J. Cannell, MD, The Vitamin D Council in San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 commented in the journal that the risk of influenza is linked to low serum vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D helps make antimicrobial peptides, which can prevent influenza viruses including H1N1. The role of vitamin D in innate immunity has been known for some time now, even though many people may not have heard of it.

Dr. Cannell said in his newsletter issued last year that two physicians, one in Wisconsin and the other in Georgia reported their observations that taking high doses of vitamin D in winter protected against H1N1 virus effectively.

According to Drs. Grant and Cannell, a Japanese trial has already demonstrated in a trial that children who took 1,200 IU per day of vitamin D3 and no additional vitamin D3 had their risk of influenza reduced by 64 percent.

One needs to know the efficacy of influenza vaccine to appreciate the protective effect of vitamin D reported in the Japanese study. Often, the effectiveness of influenza vaccine is likely no better than what vitamin D3 can provide as shown in the Japanese study.

High levels of serum vitamin D can help prevent other bacterial and viral infections, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases as well as adverse pregnancy outcomes in addition to influenza and pneumonia, Dr. Grant and dr. Cannell said in their comment.

Drs. Grant and Cannell said in their comment "pregnant women should be encouraged to increase their serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels to 40 to 80 ng/mL through supplementation with several thousand international units per day of vitamin D3 or solar ultraviolet-B when the sun is high enough that one’s shadow is shorter than one’s height."

It is generally advisable that no matter a person gets influenza vaccine or not, he should make sure to maintain sufficient levels of vitamin D to protect seasonal flu and H1N1 in any flu season. This is necessary because in most cases influenza vaccine does not work as effectively as thought.

CSU student dies from meningitis, another remains hospitalized- BOTH WERE VACCINATED!

**One Student died and another is hospitalized by Meningitis and both were vaccinated. Go figure. I know there are 3 types of meningitis but this just underscores how futile it is to try and 'protect' everyone.**

A CSU student died early this morning from bacterial meningitis, and another student remains hospitalized in critical condition with a suspected infection, university and public health officials said.

Colorado State University sophomore Christina Adame, 23, originally of Evans, fell ill about 11 pm on Tuesday and died several hours later, CSU officials said. Adame lived off campus and worked part-time in the business office and reception area of the university's Veterinary Teaching Hospital, university officials said.

"This is a very sad tragedy at CSU," said university spokesman Brad Bohlander. "Our condolences and thoughts go out to Christina's family in this difficult time."

The second student, Zachary Ratzlaff, remains hospitalized in intensive care at Poudre Valley Hospital, officials said. He lives in Corbett Hall, an on-campus dormitory. Jane Viste, a spokeswoman for the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, said Ratzlaff appeared to be less ill than Adame had been.

"I know that everyone at the university is really pulling for him to make a complete recovery," Bohlander said.

Health officials say Adame was killed by bacterial meningitis, and are investigating whether that's what sickened Ratzlaff. CSU officials said they are trying to determine what connection there was, if any, between the two, and are planning to give antibiotics as a prophylactic as a precaution to people who may have been in contact with them.

Health officials have scheduled a 4:30 p.m. press conference to discuss the situation.

Ratzlaff's floormates said he got sick very fast last night, first complaining of a stiff neck, and then a bad headache and tension all over his body.

"Oh my gosh, I'm really scared," said Angela Wood, who lives on the same floor. "Everyone hangs out together."

Wood and several other floormates said they planned to check with university health officials to see if they should be checked for an infection.

Viste said the two students had both been vaccinated for meningitis, but that the vaccine doesn't protect against every strain.

"There are many, many strains of it. This particular vaccine doesn't cover every strain," she said.

University officials said they are also making extra efforts to clean and sanitize the living and working areas of the two students. At Corbett this afternoon, CSU workers carried out a bed and frame from the wing where Ratzlaff lives.

Experts admit swine flu jab 'may cause' deadly nerve disease.

**Keep in mind that this years seasonal Flu Vaccine has the H1N1 virus strain in it, so it should be susceptible to the same issues because the governments have stressed that they are manufactured the same way.**

Health chiefs have for the first time acknowledged that the swine flu jab may be linked to an increased risk of developing a deadly nerve condition.

Experts are examining a pos­sible association between the controversial jab and Guillain-Barre Syndrome, according to a report from official watchdog the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Previously, the Government has always stressed there is no evidence to link the paralysing condition to the H1N1 vaccine.

After The Mail on Sunday revealed in August 2009 that doctors were being asked to monitor cases of GBS during the swine flu pandemic, a letter from the Health Protection Agency’s chief executive Justin McCracken stated: ‘There is no evidence to suggest an increased risk of GBS from the vaccines being developed to fight the current pandemic.’

Now the MHRA’s newly published report suggests the Government’s position has changed.

It says: ‘Given the uncer­tainties in the available information and as with seasonal flu vaccines, a slightly elevated risk of GBS following H1N1 vaccines cannot be ruled out. Epidemiological studies are ongoing to further assess this possible association.’

It is not known precisely what causes GBS but the condition attacks the lining of the nerves, leaving them unable to transmit signals to muscles effectively.

It can cause partial paralysis and mostly affects the hands and feet – but it can be fatal.

CA Whooping Cough 'Epidemic'- 2 out of 3 infected were fully vaccinated!

**This story is even worse than our previous numbers reported here Q&A on whooping cough: Have vaccinated people still gotten sick?. 2 out of 3 were fully vaccinated against the Whooping Cough and still came down with it. What does that tell you?**

Vaccinated People Getting Whooping Cough In SD

SAN DIEGO — A KPBS investigation has raised questions about how effective the whooping cough vaccine is in preventing people from getting sick. Nearly two out of three people diagnosed with whooping cough in San Diego County this year, were fully immunized.

California is in the midst of the worst whooping cough epidemic in 50 years. Thirty six hundred people in the state have been diagnosed with the disease. Eight babies have died since January.

KPBS examined data from San Diego County’s Health and Human Services Agency. Of the 332 confirmed cases of whooping cough in the county so far this year, 197 of the people who got sick were up to date with their immunizations. That's nearly 2 out of 3 cases.

Dean Sidelinger is the county’s deputy health officer.

“It’s a little higher then we expected, but certainly we do still feel the vaccine provides protection and it’s an important health tool to try and prevent this disease.”

Research in the Netherlands suggests the bacterium which causes whooping cough, or pertussis, may be mutating and contributing to whooping cough outbreaks worldwide.

Consumer Reports Flu Poll: Approximately Three Out of 10 Health Care Workers 'Living in a Bubble,' Not Getting Flu Vaccine

**Make SURE YOU get your Flu shot, but your doctor probably isn't going to follow that advice. Medical Professionals, traditionally, have hovered around the 40% mark for getting their flu shots. This is no surprise as they know that they 1) don't work and 2) have real health risks associated with them and 3) the flu is not that bad.**

YONKERS, N.Y., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new Consumer Reports Health poll reveals a disconcerting proportion of "at risk" groups who will not get the flu vaccine this year. Of most concern, only 40% of Americans in the "work risk" category—meaning those who care for young children and those who work in residential nursing homes, hospitals, and other health care environments—said they would definitely get the vaccine this year, which combines the seasonal and the 2009 H1N1 (swine) flus, while 28% said they would definitely not get the vaccine.

"It's troubling to hear that people caring for young children, including infants, and the elderly are not planning on getting the vaccine. These health care workers are among the most likely to catch the disease and spread it to individuals in their care. And it's no secret that small children and the elderly are at high risk for complications and even death," said Orly Avitzur, M.D., medical adviser, Consumer Reports Health. Poll highlights and guidance for flu and other vaccines are available online at

Tetanus Vaccine: Sterilization Agent in disguise?

**I noticed a couple of recent articles written about the Tetanus vaccine being used for sterilization and I figured I would point out that it is, in fact, being used for that purpose. See the below two articles, one from Yemen and the other from the Philippines, to see the concerns raised by parents and health professionals. Then take a look at the admission from a former health official associated with the sterilization campaign in 1996 in the Philippines.**

Group brands tetanus vaccines as contraceptives; DOH denies allegations
Davao City, Philippines (13 October) -- A group consisting of medical practitioners, local public servants, and advocates for natural family planning has alleged that the recent tetanus toxoid (TT) vaccination order of the Department of Health and the Department of Education is a form of birth control.

Judge Jesus Quitain, representing the Archdiocese of Davao, questioned DepEd's memorandum order that provides free tetanus toxoid vaccination to 14 year old and above females in all public schools.

The order also indicated the deadline for the submission of the list of female students to be subjected for vaccination last August 23, 2010.

"If the main purpose of the vaccination is for anti-tetanus, then why did they limit it to only 14 year and above females when even males are actually more prone to tetanus infection?" he said.

Former population control official affirms Philippine vaccine scandal

A former official with the Philippine government’s population control organization has released an official medical report affirming that Filipina women were injected with sterilizing agents without their knowledge or consent.

Antonio (Sonny) de los Reyes served from 1978 to 1982 in a number of Pilipino population control agencies. He was in Toronto recently to attend meetings of a Catholic charismatic prayer group.

Mr. De los Reyes, 52, served as executive director of the Commission on Population, the body coordinating the Philippine government’s population policy. He was forced out after criticizing the government for targeting the poor in its population control efforts.

Although reinstated in 1986, De los Reyes refused to go back to his old position and instead devoted his life to speaking out against anti-population schemes. Today, de los Reyes is national president of the Council of Philippine Laity. The council came to international attention when it uncovered evidence of a widespread sterilization program aimed at young Filipina women.

Advertised as a national vaccination effort, the program involved the lacing of anti-tetanus toxoids with a sterilizing chemical known as HCG. Thousands of Filipino women between the ages of 15 and 45 were inoculated by the tainted vaccines. Only through the efforts of Catholic church organizations was the tainted vaccine brought to public attention.

Mr. de los Reyes said government officials at first denied the accusations and later suggested the presence of the sterilizing agent in the vaccine was an accident.

4 children come down with Pollio, 3 of them were Vaccinated Multiple Times!

4 New Cases of Polio Detected (75% of which was in children who received the vaccine)

**Interesting that this story strikes fear into everyone reporting how many new cases of Polio are occurring and they are focusing on these 4 children in particular. If you read the entire news report, you will notice that 3 of the 4 kids were vaccinated against Polio upwards of 7 times. 7 times these poor kids were vaccinated for Polio and still got Polio, with one of them having the onset of Paralysis!!! If you also notice the fine print in the article, it says this particular town had not had a reported case of Polio in 10 years, now with the drive to vaccinate, they magically get Polio cases. Remember, Oral Polio vaccine virus is shed by the vaccinated for weeks after the immunization. These kids and the dozens of other cases are obviously victims of vaccine polio virus and not the wild type. This is becoming common as the drive to vaccinate against polio continues to be the only incidence of the disease. Its a shame that the other poor unvaccinated girl had to get Polio because everyone around her is being injected with it.**

KARACHI: Health authorities on Saturday said four new cases of polio had been detected in the country, two in Sindh and one each in Punjab and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata).

The latest victims of the dreaded disease — a boy and three girls of between 12 and 42 months — took this year’s tally of polio cases to 78.

Five of the cases have been reported from Punjab, eight from Sindh, 17 from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, seven from Balochistan and 41 from Fata.

The national manager of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation, Dr Altaf A. Bosan, said the new cases were confirmed by the National Institute of Health, Islamabad, on Friday.

He added that new cases were largely being reported from districts that had compromised on the quality of immunisation work. The floods and the subsequent movement of people could also be cited as major reasons for the increase in the number of polio cases.

Officials told Dawn that the new cases were detected in Ghotki and Sukkur districts in Sindh, Mianwali district in Punjab, and Mohmand Agency in Fata.

They said Mianwali last reported a polio case 10 years ago and Sukkur four years back. However, Ghotki has had eight cases this year and Mohmand four cases.

According to them, the number of districts where polio cases have been detected this year has risen to 27.

The sources said that Zar Mohammad, a 36-month-old boy living in the Afghan Camp in Essakhel tehsil of Punjab, had the onset of paralysis on Sept 21. According to his father, the boy was administered anti-polio drops seven times.

Asma, a 42-month-old girl of Khangarh tehsil in Ghotki district, had the onset of the disease on Sept 20. She was also immunised against polio seven times.

A 36-month-old resident of Rohri tehsil of Sukkur district, Azizan, was reported to be suffering from the disease on Sept 26. She was also administered anti-polio drops several times.

Nazia, a 12-month-old girl belonging to Safi area of Mohmand Agency, had the onset of the disease on Aug 25. The child did not receive a single dose of polio vaccine, said the sources.

MSNBC: Hundreds of Thousands of Ukrainians Refuse Vaccines!

Rumors of Western plot, death of teen cause families to reject shots

KIEV, Ukraine — A widespread scare about vaccine side effects in Ukraine has led to a sharp drop in immunizations that could result in disease outbreaks spreading beyond the former Soviet republic, international and local health officials say.

Hundreds of thousands of fearful Ukrainians have refused vaccines for diseases such as diphtheria, mumps, polio, hepatitis B, tuberculosis, whooping cough and others this year, according to official estimates. Authorities have canceled a U.N.-backed measles and rubella vaccination campaign funded by U.S. philanthropist Ted Turner, and will have to collect and incinerate nearly 9 million unused doses in coming months.

This is not an unusual story but it does show, at the end, the sad reality that his son is going to be all alone soon with no one to take care of him. Keep in mind, this is an Autism story from the 70s when Autism was a rare disease. Think of how many of these stories are going to be popping up soon with the epidemic of Autism ravaging this world. Who is going to take care of these people? Stories like this are the reason why I am so moved to try and inform as many people as possible about the risks associated with vaccination. It just tears families apart when something like this happens and it is a regretful situation.**

STEPPING inside Ivor Needs' cottage, I'm met by the most remarkable sight – every perpendicular surface in the entire building seems to be covered in letters.

Not single letters. Great piles of them – everywhere you look. Many have the distinctive stamp of the Palace of Westminster. Others are clearly from 10 Downing Street.

Letters from MPs ranging down the decades from Tony Ben to Kerry McCarthy stand shoulder to shoulder with piles of freedom of information requests, affidavits and tribunal minutes.

The 78-year-old Bristolian almost seems lost among this vision of decades of bureaucratic battling. As he looks upon the scene he shakes his head, and with sad eyes cast to the ground, shrugs his shoulders: "It's flamin' unbelievable, isn't it?"
