Flu Shot: Safety or Health Risk? – Interview with Dr. Peter Lind

The news of a flu epidemic almost took America by a storm that appears to be fading as quickly as it had surged up and was spreading Peter Lindacross the United States. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Dr. Thomas Frieden was quoted yesterday by ABC News telling that flu cases have waned in recent weeks but that flu is unpredictable and the virus can make a comeback before the season ends. While this maybe a sigh of some relief for most people, there are questions raised by health professionals and medical scientists – in and outside the United States – about the effectiveness of the flu vaccines currently offered for prevention and/or minimization of flu. Around the beginning of winter, a story in The Independent informed about the concerns of scientists over the flu vaccine’s over-promotion, calling the vaccine “over-hyped” and claiming that is not as effective against flu as it is being promoted by its proponents.

In the United States, at the same time, some health professionals are actively alerting the public against rushing themselves for a flu shot without looking at its health risks. Dr. Peter Lind, a medical doctor practicing in Salem, Oregon, not only questioned the efficacy of the flu shot but called it a health risk in his recent article in The Washington Times. Dr. Lind is here with us to talk about flu epidemic – as the news sources calls it – the flu vaccine, and public health.

Ernest: Dr. Lind, first I’d like to ask you whether flu really is that deadly an epidemic as the sensational headlines in some mainstream media sources currently present it to be.

Peter Lind: The headlines for the flu are always the same: “It’s hitting early and hard in some areas.” This is the headlines every year and this will continue hereafter. Have you ever noticed that all the major news agencies always report the same news? Read the book Propaganda, written in 1928. This is the game plan and is being followed in the medical/pharmacological/news ?elds. “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”—Edward Bernays, Propaganda.

Ernest: What exactly is the flu vaccine made of and how it is supposed to work in preventing flu?

Peter Lind: Here is the list of ingredients from the CDC website:

Vaccines contain ingredients, called antigens, which cause the body to develop immunity. Vaccines also contain very small amounts of other ingredients—all of which play necessary roles either in making the vaccine, or in ensuring that the vaccine is safe and effective. These types of ingredients are listed below.

Preservatives, e.g., Thimerosal: to prevent contamination

Adjuvants, e.g., Aluminum salts: to help stimulate the body’s response to the antigens

Stabilizer, e.g., Sugars, gelatin: to keep the vaccine potent during transportation and storage

Residual cell culture material, e.g., egg protein: to grow enough of the virus or bacteria to make the vaccine

Residual inactivating ingredient, e.g., Formaldehyde: to kill viruses or inactivate toxins during the manufacturing process

Residual antibiotic, e.g., Penicillin, sulfa drugs: to prevent contamination by bacteria during the vaccine manufacturing process

Ernest: We read in media reports that flu vaccine is failing to prevent to flu in at least some young people including children. So the question definitely is whether it’s worth taking if it cannot guarantee against flu.

Peter Lind: Flu vaccines are made months before “the virus” is cultured; so it’s a best guestimate. But then, read this from a FLULAVAL vaccine box. (In?uenza Virus Vaccine) under “indications and usage: “This indication is based on immune response elicited by FLULAVAL, there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in in?uenza disease after vaccination with

FLULAVAL 2011-2012 formula”.

I have many journal references that prove this point. People who get the ?u shot get the ?u. The problem isn’t about chasing an ever-mutating virus; it’s about improving the host immunity. Have you ever heard anyone talk about the natural ways to improve your immune system? You have to speak about the neuro-immuno-endocrine systems. The human body is a vast, complicated network.

Ernest: And flu vaccine can do harm to one’s health as well, right?

Peter Lind: Some serious reactions to the ?u vaccine include:

Life-threatening allergies to various ingredients; Guillain-Barre Syndrome (a severe paralytic disease that is fatal in about 1 in 20 cases); Encephalitis (brain in?ammation); Neurological disorders; Thrombocytopenia (a serious blood disorder). The thing is that many of the toxins, (mercury, aluminum…) are bio-accumulating. You’re going to show up with immune and neurological problems many years from now.

Ernest: So you confirm that flu shots can even be life-threatening?

Peter Lind: Here’s what Dr Richard Blaylock, a neurosurgeon who writes a lot about neurotoxins, says: “Flu vaccines contain mercury in the form of thimerosal (ethylmercury), a brain toxin, which accumulates in the brain and other organs. It’s incorporated into the brain for a lifetime. After ?ve or 10 years of ?u shots, enough mercury accumulates in the brain that every single study agrees is neurotoxic. Mercury is extremely toxic to the brain even in very small concentrations, and there are thousands of studies that prove it. The changes that we see in the brain associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are all easily produced by mercury in these doses.

Does it make any sense to get a ?u shot?

Ernest: Media in America has been stressing taking the flu shots but we rarely see the risks associated with flu shots mentioned in these reports. Do you believe it’s an ethical obligation of the media outlets to tell about the risks involved in taking a flu shot or any vaccine at all?

Peter Lind: I don’t think ethics and media are related. Yes they should; but who will fund their enterprises? Do you watch the evening news? You’ll get an earful of the latest drugs for things you never knew existed. Physicians should know better. Pharmaceutical companies should know better. Biotech companies should know better. The world is driven by money.

Ernest: Being a doctor, do you personally take a flu shot?

Peter Lind: You’re kidding. Health is an on-going journey. There are so many things to do to improve health. I tell as many people as I can the serious dangers both in acute reactions to the vaccine and the

chronic problems. If people really knew about vaccines, we would not have this discussion. Read the book Vaccination IS Not Immunization, by Dr Tim O’Shea. Study, learn, ask questions. My point is that people spend more time picking out TV shows than they do about their health. Then they believe what they are told. Sad!

Ernest: Many of my friends have no faith in flu shots and they remain fairly healthy or have just mild non-threatening flu. What would you recommend to such folks who are not big fans of vaccination?

Peter Lind: I spend my day clinically helping people that have no hope, that are on lots of medications and don’t know why, have multiple conditions, are getting worse every passing year. You can’t take vitamin C, throw your body parts around in a gym, take Airborne, or drink Green tea and think you’re healthy. People may have good intentions but I will tell you, people are sicker, younger now than ever before. You have to do much more than that to get healthy and stay healthy. I don’t want to be an alarmist but we are getting deeper and deeper in trouble. One out of three people will develop diabetes. Insane! One out of two people will die from a stroke or heart attack. Unbelievable! In the early 1900’s, they didn’t even know what a myocardial infarction was. One out of 88 children has autism. This was unheard of 30 years ago. Now what are we going to do… national health care. That will fix it.

One more thing. The majority of people are sheep being led into slaughter. It’s so sad. People put their trust in the system and the system is chewing them up. Soon you will look around and everybody

will have some condition. This shouldn’t be so.

Ernest: In your personal opinion, do you see any corporate interest backing the scary news reports of flu pandemics?

Peter Lind: Cent percent yes.

Ernest: In closing, what is the best strategy to combat communicable diseases like flu or other viral or bacterial infections?

Peter Lind: Alright, here are 5 Steps to Avoiding the Flu:

1. 3 months ago, start a morning smoothie regime. Load it up with immune boosting superfoods. Do it every day within 30 minutes of waking up.

2. 6 months ago. Expose yourself to as much sunlight as possible without burning. Supplement with D3 4000 IU’s a day.

3. Stay aerobically ?t. Move at least 40 minutes a day 5-6 days a week.

4. Keep your Body Mass Index below 25. Fat cells love to absorb toxins. Toxins love to suppress immunity.

5. Say no to people. The stress of taking on too much in this world and not taking (or making) time for yourself each and every day to decompress diminishes immunity.

BONUS: Stay away from negative people and people who don’t respect health

Ernest: Thank you very much Dr. Lind for taking time for telling us about this important topic
