FluMist Intranasal®: In 2003, the FDA approved a flu vaccine nasal spray “for healthy children and adolescents, ages 5-17, and healthy adults, ages 18-49.” According to Dr. Aaron Miller, the Society’s Chief Medical Officer, FluMist—which is a live, weakened vaccine—is not recommended for use by people with MS, and should specifically be avoided by any person with MS who is on an immune suppressive medication.
We currently have no safety data for FluMist in MS. However, we do know that live-virus vaccines are more likely than de-activated-virus vaccines to cause an increase in disease activity in people with MS, particularly in anyone whose immune system is suppressed. In addition, a person taking an immunosuppressive medication is more susceptible to developing an infection with the vaccine strain of the virus—an infection that may be particularly severe because the person’s immune system is suppressed.
The Harvard team does not know whether the vaccine causes MS in those prone to the disease or speeds up MS in those destined to have it.
The vaccine -In addition to the cancerous cells, formaldehyde (yes the preservative used for corpses) is included in the mix, along with thimerasol (mercury), and an oil-based “adjuvant” know as MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concern- squalene and gp120. It is manufactured by the Chiron Pharmaceutical Company. What is of concern is, immune adjuvants in a number of studies have shown to be a cause of devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus. Immunization against it was associated with a three-fold increase in the incidence of MS within three years following vaccination.”
According to Dr. Meryl Nass, there are only three vaccines in existence using an approved squalene adjuvant. None of the three are approved for use in the U. S. Novartis’s proprietary squalene adjuvant for their H1N1 vaccine is MF59. Glaxo’s is ASO3. MF59 has yet to be approved by the FDA for use in any U. S. vaccine, despite its history of use in other countries.
Squalene also can set off autoimmunity and is associated with multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease,” according to Dr. Russell Blaylock, a prominent American neurosurgeon.
Many British experts also are worried about Squalene, going so far as to call the upcoming trials of the swine flu vaccine a “guinea-pig trials.”
Still, the vaccine is considered experimental, not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and could have unknown risks; that’s why it is being tested on small groups of people around the country first.
Alfonso’s concerns center around a health alert in the Daily Mail in London, England, where it was reported that there have been two leaked letters revealing a link between swine flu vaccine and a lethal nerve disorder.
Guillain-Barre syndrome is an acute inflammatory disorder and is an incurable autoimmune disorder that ravages the protective sheathing of the nerves, affecting the peripheral nervous system, brain and the spinal cord. An acute infectious process usually triggers it.
“I will not have the swine flu jab because of the risk,” said a Florida neurologist who asked that his name not be used in this story. “But if any of my patients ask me directly, I will also recommend they not take the proposed three-shot cocktail.” Another worry about the vaccine is the use of component oil called Squalene, and it’s known side effects.
Squalene adjuvants are a key ingredient in a whole new generation of vaccines intended for mass immunization around the globe. Squalene is not just a molecule found in a knee or elbow joint - it is found throughout the entire nervous system and the brain.
Flu H1N1 Vaccine 2009 Side Affects
A further major source of toxicity in the case of the flu vaccines are the adjuvants, substances added in order to boost the immunogenicity of the vaccines. There is a large literature on the toxicities of adjuvants. Most flu vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a deadly preservative 50 times more toxic than mercury itself . At high enough doses, it can cause long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions. Also associated with mercury poisoning are autism, attention deficit disorder, multiple sclerosis, and speech and language deficiencies. The Institute of Medicine has warned that infants, children, and pregnant women should not be injected with thimerosal, yet the majority of the flu shots contain 25 micrograms of it.
According to a recent review in a science and business pharmaceutical publication , most newer adjuvants including MF59, ISCOMS, QS21, AS02, and AS04 have substantially higher local reactogenicity and systemic toxicity than alum.
(1) the adjuvants are added to increase inflammation and immune response in the system, and (2) the adjuvants are significantly detrimental to the overall welfare of the organisms, according to the neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., an expert in this field. His research suggests the vaccinations may cause; neurological damage, including encephalitis, nerve damage, multiple sclerosis, and SSPE
