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?

The High Risks of Vitamin K Shot for Your Newborn Baby

The High Risks of Vitamin K Shot for Your Newborn Baby

It has been standard practice in the US and most western countries since 1944 to welcome babies into the world by subjecting them to a variety of medical interventions, one of which is a jab with a syringe full of vitamin K.

This injection is routinely done to almost all newborns, unless you, as a parent, refuse to consent. A needle stick can be a terrible assault to a baby’s suddenly overloaded sensory system, which is trying to adjust to the outside world.

According to Vitamin K expert Dr. Cees Vermeer PhD, vitamin K offered orally is a better option for your infant than injection.

Doctors Against Mandated Flu Vaccines

Doctors Against Mandated Flu Vaccines

Mainstream news media sources (which are heavily funded by Big Pharma) would like everyone to believe that those in the medical field are united in their support of vaccines. However, there are many doctors and healthcare officials questioning the safety and efficacy of vaccines today.

This is especially true regarding the issue of mandatory flu vaccinations for healthcare workers. Doctors, nurses, and others are increasingly speaking out against mandatory flu vaccinations, especially in Canada.

A recent report in the Vancouver Sun quoted an emergency room doctor, Dr. Derrick Moore, as stating that he and 10 nurses refused to comply with mandatory flu vaccinations for healthcare workers at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital in Victoria B.C. According to the Vancouver Sun, Dr. Moore stated that the health authorities in Canada were unable to pick on him and the nurses because of “strength in numbers” and the impact it would have on emergency room staffing if they were fired. He stated he believed doctors and nurses across Canada were refusing the mandatory flu vaccine.

Earlier this week, three medical doctors wrote an editorial in the Toronto Star opposing mandatory flu vaccinations for healthcare workers. They stated that the evidence of the benefits of the flu vaccine is not nearly strong enough to justify taking away a doctor’s choice to make the decision on whether or not they vaccinate themselves.

Thousands Sue for Damages Against Cholesterol Drugs as Big Pharma Defends Billion Dollar Industry

Thousands Sue for Damages Against Cholesterol Drugs as Big Pharma Defends Billion Dollar Industry

The $100 billion dollar cholesterol-lowering statin drug industry is under attack, as thousands of Americans are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers cholesterol-lowering drugs such as Lipitor. Research continues to confirm just how dangerous these drugs are, with yet another study published recently linking increased statin drug use to type 2 diabetes. Since the study was published by the American Diabetes Association, these known risks to cholesterol-lowering drugs can no longer be denied or defended, and the lawsuits are pouring in at a rapid pace. Most of the lawsuits at this point are from women who have suffered with diabetes as a result of taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, but lawsuits over breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, liver damage and others may soon follow now that it is generally known how dangerous these drugs are.

According to statistics supplied by various law firms, there were 464 claims filed against Lipitor as of April 15, 2014, which increased to 703 by May 15, and then to 846 by June 16. As of mid-July 2014 over 959 claims have been filed for damages due to Lipitor alone. There are also many claims currently filed against Crestor, the next nearest competitor to Lipitor, and undoubtedly other similar drugs now sold under generic labels. These lawsuits now number well over 1,000, and are increasing at a rapid pace. Yet, this news is largely blacked out of the mainstream media.

700 Lipitor and Diabetes Lawsuit Claims Filed Against Pfizer

700 Lipitor and Diabetes Lawsuit Claims Filed Against Pfizer

Before its patent expired, Lipitor was the best-selling drug of all time. Lipitor, the drug that artificially lowers cholesterol, outsold almost all other drugs combined during the height of its run, before the patent ran out allowing generics to enter the market. The FDA did not issue warnings about the dangerous side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs until after Lipitor’s patent expired.

The information here comes from an attorney, as attorneys across the nation see the economic opportunities now to sue Pfizer for damage done to millions of peoples’ health.

1 in 3 veterans polled say they are on 10 different medications.
