Study: Vaccinated People Twice As Likely To Get Flu

Study reveals that vaccinated people are twice as likely to get the flu

A new study has found that vaccinated individuals are twice as likely to get the flu compared to their unvaccinated counterparts. 

According to immunologists, obese Americans who received the flu shot showed a bigger risk in developing the flu than the rest of the unvaccinated population.

Lewrockwell.com reports: A striking study shows flu vaccination did increase antibody titers (concentration) among healthy and obese individuals, but that failed to protect obese individuals from the flu.  In fact, obese vaccinated individuals were twice as likely to get the flu compared to healthy vaccinated individuals.  Given over 100 million Americans elect to get a flu shot annually and a third of the adult population is obese, vaccination programs appear to be counterproductive.

Immunologists identified an impaired T-cell response as the cause of the problem.  The study was published in the International Journal of Obesity.

“This finding challenges the current standard blood tests being used to indicate whether a person has enough protection against influenza or not,” said a commentary by the publisher of the study. The lead researcher for the study said: “Alternative approaches may be needed to protect obese adults from both seasonal and pandemic influenza virus infections.”

A paper published in the journal Medical Hypotheses in 1999 suggests such an alternative.  Deficiencies of zinc, a trace mineral, and glutathione (glu-ta-thy-on), an internally produced enzymatic antioxidant, as well as nitric oxide, a transient arterial gas, can lead to an impaired cellular immune response.

Nitric oxide is activated with the consumption of amino acids (arginine, citrulline), resveratrol and garlic.  Glutathione is a sulfur-bearing antioxidant that is activated by vitamin C and resveratrol.

Provision of supplemental vitamins A, B6, C, E, zinc and selenium are proposed to rectify the abnormal T-cell response.  Zinc also serves as a mimic of insulin among diabetics who are likely overweight and prone to weak immunity.

Nitric oxide and the trace mineral selenium help to release zinc from a binding protein (metallothionein) that inhibits its bioavailability.

    Anyone comes at me with a loaded needle and syringe, i will defend myself.

    I don’t believe that is what this study says. What I read is that vaccinated obese people get flu twice as frequently as vaccinated healthy people.

      You are correct. Your News Wire is mostly fake/altered news. Only major dolts take what they publish seriously.

    There is no cold vaccine because there are too many strains to protect against. How is the flu any different? Not only do vaccines make no sense, period, but there is also no logic behind a flu vaccine, either.

    Then we get case after case, the people who ask to have these toxins shot up are getting sick and spreading the diseases they were supposed to be magically immunized from.

    Knowing this, why do we continue to listen to these allopathic freaks?

      You can’t be serious. How is the flu any different? Because there are relatively few strains of the flu virus compared to the more than 250 strains of the common cold virus. You need to read more…and try reading actual books.

      Here’s something else you do not know – the Spanish Flu killed 50 million people. Do you hate humanity?
