In a recent article titled “Flu vaccine statistics don’t add up” authored by J L Craig, BSN, PhD, influenza statistics are taken to task for glaring misinterpretation by none other than the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC. So what else is new? (http://www.bclocalnews.com/opinion…)
Citing statistics published in a recent Lancet article (thelancet.com/journals) that flu shots prevent flu in only 1.5 out of 100 adults, the CDC considers that proof that flu vaccines work and are 60 percent effective. Hold the phone! What are they smoking? What happened to the 98.5 percent of those who were vaccinated for flu and for whom it supposedly did nothing, according to the mega analysis?
This short but enlightening article about how CDC and probably other government health agencies mess with vaccine statistics ought to make parents of children—and everyone—wonder about the spin put out by the feds and Big Pharma as to the demographics, facts, and studies regarding vaccine safety and efficacy.
Here’s where we caught them either with their knickers down or their hands in the cookie jar. But this most likely is not the first time, and probably won’t be the last. It’s probably their standard MO—modus operandi. Now do you believe them?
