Miami Man Contracts Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Nearly Dies After Getting Flu Shot

Vaccine Syringe2 Miami Man Contracts Guillain Barré Syndrome, Nearly Dies After Getting Flu Shot

By Michael Miller
Miami New Times

Excerpts:

Three months ago, Michael Stec could bench-press 275 pounds. Now the 56-year-old struggles to walk, gripping tightly to the parallel bars at Mercy Hospital, his legs buckling underneath him like broken stilts.

“Something is wrong with this flu shot,” he says from his hospital bed, his tracheotomy scar still visible.

Stec, who asked to go by his wife’s maiden name because he works for a government agency that hasn’t authorized him to speak, was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease called Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) November 11 — eight days after receiving the flu shot.

Stec’s diaphragm shut down an hour after he was rushed to Mercy. Doctors cut a hole in his throat and put him on a breathing machine. Then his nervous system went haywire. Several times Isabelle thought he would die.

Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and CVS Pharmacy do warn people of the risk of contracting GBS. But the warning is vaguely written in fine print: “If there is a risk of GBS from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than one or two cases per million people vaccinated.”

The CDC says the minute risk of GBS is worth it.

Stec questions that logic, however. “You can risk getting paralyzed, or you can risk a couple of weeks with the sniffles,” he says. “How can you put this in comparison?”

He believes there are more victims like him than the CDC and Big Pharma admit. “They say the chances are one in a million,” Stec says. “I think there are more and they are hiding the statistics.”

Watch this video from NBC Miami where they interview Michael and his wife. While the doctor minimizes the risk of GBS saying it has never happened with this vaccine and that studies show the risk to be only one in a million, note how Michael found out that GBS was even associated with the flu vaccine: the people in the emergency room at the hospital told him! If someone comes into an ER with these symptoms and they ask you if you had the flu shot recently, do you honestly believe it has never happened before and that the risk is only one out of a million??

Robin Kelman “When I started nursing worked a Neuro floor in a 600 bed hospital and every Fall/Winter we would have several GBS patients in. Several of them initials onset was post Flu vaccinations. One lady had suffered multiple occurrences of various levels of paralysis since 1980. More than enough reason for me to never take a Flu vac!”

Kimberly McMahon My 8 year old daughter got GBS after a flu shot. Never again will I subject my family to the flu shot! Not after seeing my daughter completely paralyzed!

Indiana Coalition for Vaccination Choice Facebook page moderator noticed that the flu vaccine in this story was given at a CVS Pharmacy, so she did a little research:

This is the package insert for the flu vacine being used by two local CVS pharmacies in my area. Take a look at pages 7 and 8. Under the charts demonstrating the most common adverse reactions, you will note that those receiving the drug were compared to a “placebo” group receiving a dose of something containing mercury. Does this sound like good science to you?

By using a “placebo” containing a potent neurotoxin, it appears the systemic reactions to the actual vaccine were pretty much equal to the systemic reactions to the harmless “placebo”. Now that you know the “placebo” contained a potent neurotoxin, how confident are you in these drug trials?

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

Congressman Bill Posey’s strong resolve and demands for transparency were evident as he discussed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s handling of vaccine safety studies which affect “our most precious resource in our nation – our children.” The 30-minute interview, conducted by vaccine industry watchdog, PhD biochemist Brian Hooker, delves into what Posey called “the incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials.”

The Florida legislator, known as “Mr. Accountabililty,” did not mince words when criticizing current and past CDC officials including indicted fraudster Dr. Poul Thorsen; CDC director turned Merck Vaccine President Dr. Julie Gerberding; and the agency’s current spokesperson regarding autism and vaccines, Dr. Coleen Boyle.

Congressman Posey said, “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated.”

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

In an interview with Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, he predicts that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time. Dr. Dalbergue believes that at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill young girls, serves no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

An important new book by a recognized medical research expert describes Big Pharma as akin to the Mafia. In an interview conducted by our colleagues at ANH-Europe, Dr. Peter C. Gøtzsche exposes the flaws of the drug approval system, our reliance on dangerous drugs, and the deadly co-dependence between regulators and industry. Dr. Gøtzsche is co-founder of the highly respected Cochrane Collaboration and Cochrane Reviews, a leading journal of evidence-based medicine. The interview is particularly timely now that the FDA has decided to remove restrictions on the dangerous drug Avandia.

Dr. Gøtzsche’s new book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare, points out that the pharmaceutical industry is allowed to test their own drugs, and thus effectively be their own judge. He calls this a threat to safe medicine and asks for open access to all research data, including raw data, because otherwise, data can be easily suppressed and conclusions manipulated by industry.

Medical Cannabis is a Threat to the Pharmaceutical Industry

Medical Cannabis is a Threat to the Pharmaceutical Industry

Medical marijuana, or cannabis, is legal in 20 US states, where it is used for a variety of medical conditions such as mood disorders, pain disorders, multiple sclerosis, and even cancer. Parents of children with epilepsy met at a news conference to share their dismay that Governor Mark Dayton refuses to legalize medical marijuana. About 85 percent to 95 percent of Americans are in favor of medical cannabis, and nearly 60 percent are in favor of legalizing marijuana. Cannabis shows outstanding promise as a medicinal plant, largely due to its cannabidiol (CBD) content. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body.

Leaders of Teaching Hospitals Have Close Ties to Drug Companies, Study Shows

Leaders of Teaching Hospitals Have Close Ties to Drug Companies, Study Shows

Pharmaceutical company payments to doctors extend far beyond rank-and-file clinicians — and deep into the leadership of America’s teaching hospitals, according to a study published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center examined the boards of the 50 largest drug companies by global sales (excluding three companies that were not publicly traded). The researchers found that 40 percent — 19 companies — had at least one board member who also held a leadership role at an academic medical center. Sixteen of the 17 companies based in the United States had at least one. Several had more than one. All told, the research team found that 41 of the companies’ 2012 board members held leadership positions at academic medical centers. Six of the 41 were pharmaceutical company executives who served on hospital boards of directors or held other leadership posts.

The authors wrote that when academic medical leaders serve on pharmaceutical company boards, it can lead to conflicts not only for individuals, but for the critically important health care institutions they guide.
