They’ll say just about ANYTHING to get you to have your vaccinations.
They’ll promise you the sun, the moon, the stars, and a coupon for 20 percent off toilet paper via that 50-foot receipt they print out at the CVS after you cough up your copay.
Let me tell you what they’re REALLY after…
Because it’s not better health.
It’s BIGGER profits, of course!
You see, vaccines have slowly and quietly turned into a cash cow for the drug industry and all of its partners, including medical clinics and even the chain pharmacies that now practically beg you to get your shots there.
Think about THAT next time they ask you to roll up your sleeve!
And don’t forget about it when they make all these wild promises about what a vaccine can do, either – including the latest claim about the shingles shot.
This one may just be the most absurd yet!
The SHINGLES vaccine’s latest sales pitch
They’re REALLY pushing hard on the shingles vaccine, and if the idea of avoiding this incredibly painful and absolutely debilitating condition isn’t enough to get you on board, they’ve just cooked up another reason.
Supposedly, the vaccine will cut your risk of a stroke, especially in folks between 66 and 79.
The new study claims the shot will reduce the risk of:
• Ischemic stroke by about 18 percent
• Hemorrhagic stroke by 12 percent
Now, I’m not going to tell you whether or not to get the shingles vaccine.
That’s a decision for you to make, based on sound science and your own risk factors – and without mainstream fear-mongering.
But I will tell you this: Don’t get the shingles vaccine because you think it’ll cut the risk of stroke.
Because odds are, it WON’T.
First off, this study was done on the vaccine that was popular a couple of years ago… but ISN’T used in most cases anymore.
That’s right, friends; they talked this thing up like the perfect shot for shingles prevention… and just like that, poof. It was replaced by newer and better (and, likely, more profitable) version.
Any extra “benefit” found in the study applies to THAT shot, not the current one since it wasn’t in the study.
And second, c’mon… this just reeks of nonsense. Shingles itself can increase the risk of stroke, therefore NOT getting shingles will also cut that risk!
There’s nothing controversial about that.
The REAL debate is over the best way to prevent shingles, and whether any benefit from the vaccine is worth any risks or side effects.
Since it takes decades to fully reveal the risks of something as permanent as a vaccine, all I can say is the jury’s still out.
Whether you choose to vaccinate or not, arm your immune system with good sleep, low stress and plenty of vitamin C.
In addition, vitamin B12 can protect the nerves, which are not only key targets of the disease but also where an outbreak is likely to start.
If you happen to get sick anyway, talk to a doctor about intravenous C, which has shown to cut pain and fatigue and even clear out the infection itself… in some cases, in a matter of days!
