Swine Flu "Indoctrination"

H1N1 has become a hot topic. The media hype has people lining up at flu clinics for hours to get their vaccination shot. With all of the fear-mongering going on, I thought it would be useful to take a look at the swine flu "pandemic" from a different perspective.

To be honest, I find the idea of mass "immunization" very disturbing. It is even more unsettling that so many people are ready to get injected with a vaccine when most of us really have no idea what is in it. Now, I'm not presumptuous enough to tell others what to do. But I do believe in taking personal responsibility for our own health and wellness. To do this we need to ask more questions and become educated about our "health-care" interventions.

Rather than share my personal opinion on this matter, I invite you to review the following links which provide some answers to some excellent questions, such as:
  • What is in the H1N1 flu vaccine? What are "adjuvants"?
  • Is the flu vaccine proven to be effective?
  • Is the Swine Flu really that bad?
  • Are there risks or potential long-term side effects to getting vaccinated?
  • Are there safer alternatives to prevent the flu?
  • Is the media delivering the straight facts about this pandemic?
Several of the articles and interviews I link to are from Dr. Mercola, a medical professional whom I have alot of respect for. Here are the links:

1. Eat a healthy diet including plenty of vegetables and unprocessed whole foods. Also drink plenty of water.

2. Exercise regularly, including brief, intense resistance training sessions and interval training "cardio" workouts.

3. Get enough sleep. This is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.

4. Take your vitamins, especially vitamin D! More and more studies are showing the importance of this amazing vitamin, and few of us get enough of it.

5. Wash your hands frequently.

6. Learn as much as you can about what you put in your body.

I highly recommend you take some time to check out the links above and please share your thoughts on this blog in the comment section below.

Yours in Health,
