Vaccination Liberation - Information

Brief Overview:
Flu Deaths are only a small percentage of the frequently stated 36,000
deaths per year associated with the flu. The 36,000 is a combined figure for
both flu and pneumonia. Flu deaths alone are typically 1 to 4 % of the
combined total of 36,000.
There are an estimated average of 1250 deaths associated with the flu each
year in the USA [1250/36,000= 3.5%].

There is long term, large population evidence that the flu vaccine does NOT
save lives in those over 65. Graphs

The flu vaccine is NOT effective in any age group at preventing the flu.

It is never safe to inject decaying matter mixed with poisons into the
human body. See the adverse effects
section.

Deaths from flu and pneumonia
declined by about 90 percent of the
year 1900 rates before the widespread
use of flu vaccine. This demonstrates
with certainly that the major
preventive of flu deaths (and flu
incidence) is sanitation and
nutrition. The fact that no further
declines have occured in the death rate
for combined flu and pneumonia deaths
tells us that the ONLY preventive for flu deaths and flu incidence is the
lifestyle elements which make a healthy life. Further improvements to
health as regards the flu will have to come by renewed efforts regarding
sanitation and nutrition. This is especially true for the area of nutrition as the
real cause of the flu is the body's need to eliminate the by-products of
difficult to digest foods or food combinations. The severity of flu is similar to
all other 'contageous' diseases in that the amount of toxic material in the
body and the amount of available nutritional support elements (I.E. Vitamin
C) are the main items which determine severity or success of the cleansing
process which we call the 'symptoms of the flu.'

Note:
Using some figures from the census bureau, I calculate that from 1980 to
2000 the elderly population (over 65) grew about 1.4 times (increased 40%)
while flu vaccinations have risen by over 3 times (20% to 66%) in this age
group. As you can see from the next quote, deaths have increased over 200
percent

Influenza-related deaths can result from pneumonia and from exacerbations
of cardiopulmonary conditions and other chronic diseases. Deaths of adults
aged >65 years account for >90% of deaths attributed to pneumonia and
influenza. In one study, approximately 19,000 influenza-associated
pulmonary and circulatory deaths per influenza season occurred during
1976--1990, compared with approximately 36,000 deaths during 1990--
1999. Estimated rates of influenza-associated pulmonary and circulatory
deaths/100,000 persons were 0.4--0.6 among persons aged 0--49 years,
7.5 among persons aged 50--64 years, and 98.3 among persons aged >65
years. In the United States, the number of influenza-associated deaths has
increased in part because the number of older persons is increasing,
particularly persons aged >85 years. In addition, influenza seasons in which
influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominate are associated with higher
mortality; influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominated in 90% of influenza
seasons during 1990--1999, compared with 57% of influenza seasons during
1976--1990.

Source of above: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/professionals/diagnosis/ According
to CBS News Healthwatch, "But between 1976 and 1999, the number of U.S.
adults 85 and older doubled. And the researchers found that this age group
was 16 times more likely to die of flu-related causes than people ages 65 to
69."
- - - Now what does that have to do with a vaccine? Over half the over 65
population dies, of all causes, between ages 65 and 85. In the 5 years of age
between 85-90, 42 percent (a bit less than half) of those who start at 85 will
be dead before age 90.

Graph of life expectancy for year 2003.

Summary
The number of over age 65 population went up 40%.
The number of over age 85 population doubled.
The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia almost doubled.
And all that while the percentage of flu vaccinated in this age group
went up 330%, thats 3 and 1/3 times. [20 % in 1980 were
vaccinated against influenza and now 65-67 % of the over age 65
age group are vaccinated against influenza.]

Yes, this year's flu vaccine contains mercury. [2006-2007] And again
[2007-2008]
http://www.putchildrenfirst.org/flu.html
"PutChildrenFirst commissioned a survey by Zogby International of more
than 9,000 Americans regarding their views of mercury in flu shots."
"- 76% of respondents are unaware that most flu shots contain mercury."
"- 77% believe mercury should not be an ingredient in flu shots given to
pregnant women and children."
"* More than 90% of this year's [2006-2007] flu vaccine supply will
contain 25 micrograms of mercury, ..."

2007-2008 Thimerosal-free and Thimerosal-containing vaccines
It appears that a significant portion of the 132 million flu vaccines in 2007-
2008 season will contain thimerosal but an exact calculation was not found.

See http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/qa/vaxsupply.htm
"...as many as 132 million doses of influenza vaccine will be available from
currently licensed manufacturers in the U.S. for use during the 2007-08
influenza season."
"...sanofi pasteur is projecting that 10 million to 12 million doses of
thimerosal-free vaccine in pre-filled syringes or vials ..." [mostly in 0.25 mL
syringes]
"MedImmune is projecting up to 7 million doses of the thimerosal free nasal
vaccine, FluMist, ..."
Also CSL Biotherapy, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline are producing
preservative-free vaccines this season.

Yes, last year's flu vaccine contains mercury. [2005-2006] and [2006-

FLU Vaccine Ingredients depend upon the manufacturer
FluVirin, FluShield, FluZone, FluMist, Etc, Etc.

• All are made using egg or chicken protein
• Influenza viruses (most! are inactivated)
• Neomycin, polymyxin, gentamycin - antibiotics
• Thimerosal [mercury] - a harmful preservative
• Betapropiolactone - a disinfectant
• Nonoxynol - used to kill or stop growth of STDs
• Octoxinol 9 - a vaginal spermicide
• Formaldehyde - embalming fluid used to kill viruses

Ingredient and associated risk list for the Fluzone vaccine:

1. Chick Embryo - this can be problematic for those allergic to eggs or
egg products
2. Formaldehyde - (Embalming Fluid) Formaldehyde has been classified
as a human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by the
International Agency for Research on Cancer and as a probable human
carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency). Research
studies of workers exposed to formaldehyde have suggested an
association between formaldehyde exposure and cancers of the nasal
sinuses, nasopharynx, and brain, and possibly leukemia
3. Octoxinol-9 - This is a spermacide (kills sperm) Chills; confusion;
dizziness; fever; lightheadedness; muscle aches; sunburn-like skin
rash that is followed by peeling of the skin
4. Triton X-100 - Harmful if swallowed. Causes severe eye irritation.
May be harmful if inhaled or in contact with skin. Toxicology not fully
investigated. The product may contain traces of ethylene oxide or
dioxane, which are probable human carcinogens.
5. Gelatin- Made from the boiled bones, skins and tendons of animals.
6. Thimerisol (mercury derivative) - Several cases of acute mercury
poisoning from thimerosal-containing products were found in the
medical literature with total doses of thimerosal ranging from
approximately 3 mg/kg (Your vaccine contains 25 ug per 5mL dose) to
several hundred mg/kg These studies reported local necrosis, acute
hemolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, acute renal tubular
necrosis, and central nervous system injury including obtundation,
coma, and death
7. Sodium Phosphate - Phosphates are slowly and incompletely
absorbed when ingested, and seldom result in systemic effects. Such
effects, however, have occurred Symptoms may include vomiting,
lethargy, diarrhea, blood chemistry effects, heart disturbances and
central nervous system effects. The toxicity of phosphates is because
of their ability to sequester calcium. Irritant due to its acidic nature.
May cause inflammation and pain on prolonged contact, especially with
moist skin. May sequester calcium and cause calcium phosphate
deposits in the kidneys.
8. Sodium Chloride(Salt) - Very large doses can cause vomiting,
diarrhea, and prostration. Dehydration and congestion occur in most
internal organs. Hypertonic salt solutions can produce violent
inflammatory reactions in the gastrointestinal tract. May irritate
damaged skin; absorption can occur with effects similar to those via
ingestion.

Flu Shots and Alzheimer's
Many people have asked me to reprint the flu shot information.
Here it is from our Oct 2000 newsletter:

"According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading
immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times
(nearly 850 papers in peer review journals), if an individual
has had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980
(the years studied), his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's
Disease is ten times higher than if they had one, two or no
shots. (1)

I asked Dr. Fudenberg why this was so and he said it was due
to the mercury that is in every flu shot (and many childhood
shots). The gradual mercury buildup in the brain causes
cognitive dysfunction.

Is that why Alzheimer's is expected to quadruple? (2)

Conference, Arlington, VA September, 1997. Quoted with

Prevention
Scientists who do not stand to gain financially from the flu
vaccine (or other commercial interventions) are proposing a
hypothesis that should have been studied decades ago. By
examining the historic record of influenza outbreaks several
scientists-including Dr. Scott Dowell, director of the Global
Disease Protection Program at the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention in Atlanta, are focusing on sunshine. Most
people don't get enough sunshine this time of year and are
therefore deficient in vitamin D.

Vitamin D isn't the only substance being kicked around as a
seasonal stimulus candidate. The CDC's Scott Dowell favors
melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone whose production is
tied to the daily light-dark cycle. Preliminary research suggests
that the hormone might help regulate the body's immune
response. "I don't know where it's going to lead," he concedes.

Treatment
Homeopathy
From: "Some history of the treatment of epidemics with
Homeopathy"
by Julian Winston,
To see whole article, see http://www.whale.to/v/winston.html
Perhaps the most recent use of homeopathy in a major
epidemic was during the Influenza Pandemic of 1918. The
Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy, May, 1921,
had a long article about the use of homeopathy in the flu
epidemic. Dr. T A McCann, from Dayton, Ohio reported that
24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had a mortality rate
of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically
had a mortality rate of 1.05%. This last figure was supported
by Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia (Hahnemann College)
who collected 26,795 cases of flu treated with homeopathy
with the above result.

The most common remedy used was Gelsemium, with
occasional cases needing Bryonia and Eupatorium reported.
Dr. Herbert A. Roberts from Derby, CT, said that 30 physicians
in Connecticut responded to his request for data. They
reported 6,602 cases with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%.
Dr. Roberts was working as a physician on a troop ship during
WWI. He had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe. He
reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received
homeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way."

Flu Shot Proven To Be Ineffective....Again.
http://sayingnotovaccines.blogspot.com/
[Studies showing that healthy people die at a slower rate than
unhealthy people have been used to make false claims that
the flu vaccine saves many more lives than flu and pneumonia
deaths combined.]
[Vaccines cause Influenza Like Illness (ILI) but by not counting
illness that occur right after vaccination, a false claim can be
made that the vaccine prevents some clinically confirmed
influenza cases.]

The fact that the flu shots are ineffective in every age group
hardly seems to matter to those who continually promote their
use.

• Flu Shots for Toddlers Not Backed By Evidence, Major Study
Says
http://www.cfah.org/hbns/getDocument.cfm?documentID=12
11

Only a few studies of the vaccine have been conducted in
children under 2 years old, and findings suggest that the
injection is no better than a placebo at preventing influenza.
Moreover, only one tiny study has looked specifically at the
safety of flu shots in toddlers.

The Cochrane review [The Cochrane Collaboration, an
international organization that evaluates medical research.]
comprised 51 studies of influenza vaccines — including 17
papers translated from Russian for the first time — involving
more than 250,000 healthy youngsters under age 16.

Yet only a fraction of these studies focused on children
younger than 2. Two efficacy studies involving about 1,000
toddlers indicate that flu shots containing inactivated virus —
the only vaccine approved for this age group — are no more
effective at preventing the flu than placebo.

• EFFECTIVENESS OF FLU SHOTS WILDLY OVERESTIMATED

In 2000 the Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
launched a $38 million (annually) universal influenza
immunization program for Ontario, Canada. Its objective was
to decrease the seasonal impact of influenza on emergency
department (ED) visits and to decrease the number and
severity of influenza cases. A review of the efficacy of this
program published in the Canadian Journal of Emergency
Medicine found that the percentage of acute upper respiratory
illnesses seeking emergency medical help is very low - "only
4.4% and of these influenza accounted for only 0.34%".
Conclusion: “Based on this study, a universal influenza
immunization campaign is unlikely to affect ED volume.” (6)

Mass influenza vaccination in Ontario: Is it worthwhile?
The actual proportion of influenza A and B cases among ILI
cases is not well known, but the few available studies indicate
a modest proportion of probably less than 10%...
Only a small percentage of reported cases of "Influenza-Like
Illnesses" (ILI) are actually laboratory cofirmed as influenza
virus - somewhere between 10-15%. The rest, 85% or more of
ILI's are other identified as other viruses, RSV, rhinovirus,
adenovirus, etc.

Time for the Flu Vaccine? Think Again
The flu vaccine gets the most-useless-vaccine-of-all-time
award. Now the CDC is recommending the vaccine for children
under two years old and all adults over 50. Don't fall for it.
... Regardless of vaccination status, 99 percent of the elderly
recover from the flu without being hospitalized.

Four other studies among nursing home patients have
demonstrated a vaccine efficacy at 0%, 2%, 8% and 9% even
when the vaccine virus is "essentially identical" to that causing
the outbreak. To justify the government's recommendation
that all elderly persons receive flu shots, they make the claim
that even though the vaccine does not prevent the flu very
well, it is highly effective in preventing the severe
consequences of infection in at risk groups as measured by the
reduction in pneumonia, hospitalisation and death. [Alan
Hampson, Media Release, 5/3/99] The actual fact is that
according to a Medicare Influenza Vaccine Demonstration
Project, Medicare payments were significantly higher for those
who had been vaccinated.

The influenza epidemic that hit North America so strongly in
January 2000 was the worst in 5 years.
Of interest is the fact that a large percentage of the elderly
that contracted the flu did so despite having had their flu
shots. One nursing home in Toronto recorded 32 cases of the
flu; of those who became ill, 31 had been vaccinated against
the flu the month before.

• Dr Greene.com - - study of 793 children shows no decrease...

Earlier studies have strongly suggested that the vaccine
dramatically prevents ear infections. An unpublished, yet
news-making, study of 793 children aged 6 to 24 months,
presented at the May 2002 meeting of the Pediatric Academic
Societies, reports no decrease in ear infections, doctor's visits,
ER visits, antibiotic prescriptions, ill family members, or missed
work, school, or daycare in those that received the vaccine.

Aventis Pasteur Inc.
Swiftwater PA 18370 USA

"...is a sterile suspension prepared from influenza viruses propagated in
chicken embryos. The virus-containing fluids are harvested and inactivated
with formaldehyde. Influenza virus is concentrated and purified in a linear
sucrose density gradient solution using a continuous flow centrifuge. The
virus is then chemically disrupted using Polyethylene Glycol p-Isooctylphenyl
Ether (Triton r X-100 - A registered trademark of Rohm and Haas, Co.)
producing a "split-antigen." The split-antigen is then further purified by
chemical means and suspended in sodium phosphate-buffered isotonic
sodium chloride solution. Fluzone has been standardized according to USPHS
requirements for the 2002-2003 influenza season and is formulated to
contain 45 micrograms (µg) hemagglutinin (HA) per 0.5 mL dose, in the
recommended ratio of 15 µg HA each, representative of the following three
prototype strains: A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1), A/Panama/2007/99
(H3N2) (an A/Moscow/10/99-like strain) and B/Hong Kong/1434/2002 (a
B/Hong Kong/330/2001-like strain). 1 Gelatin 0.05% is added as a stabilizer.
Fluzone is supplied in two unit dose preservative-free presentations
distinguished by a pink syringe plunger rod: a 0.25 mL prefilled syringe (for
pediatric use) and a 0.5 mL prefilled syringe; both are formulated without
preservatives but contain a trace amount of thimerosal [(contains 49.6%
mercury),(<=0.5 µg Hg/0.25 mL dose) (<=1.0 µg Hg/0.5 mL dose)] from
the manufacturing process. Fluzone is also supplied in two other
presentations: a 0.5 mL prefilled syringe and 5 mL vial of vaccine, of which
both contain the preservative thimerosal [(mercury containing compound),
25 µg mercury/0.5 mL dose]. Fluzone, after shaking syringe/vial well, is
essentially clear and slightly opalescent in color. ANTIBIOTICS ARE NOT
USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF FLUZONE."

"Among persons aged >=65 years, influenza vaccination levels increased
from 33% in 1989 to 66% in 1999, surpassing the Healthy People 2000 goal
of 60%. "

"Influenza A viruses are further categorized into subtypes based on two
surface antigens: hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N). Influenza B
viruses are not categorized into subtypes. Both influenza A and B viruses are
further separated into groups based on antigenic characteristics. New
influenza virus variants result from frequent antigenic change (i.e., antigenic
drift), resulting from point mutations that occur during viral replication.
Influenza B viruses undergo antigenic drift less rapidly than influenza A
viruses. Since 1977, influenza A (H1N1) viruses, influenza A (H3N2) viruses,
and influenza B viruses have been in global circulation. A person's immunity
to the surface antigens, especially hemagglutinin, reduces the likelihood of
infection and the severity of disease if infection occurs. However, antibody
against one influenza virus type or subtype confers little or no protection
against another virus type or subtype. Furthermore, antibody to one
antigenic variant of influenza virus might not protect against a new antigenic
variant of the same type or subtype. The frequent development of antigenic
variants through antigenic drift is the virologic basis for seasonal epidemics
and the reason for the possible incorporation of >=1 new strains in each
year's influenza vaccine." "Influenza-related deaths can result from
pneumonia as well as from exacerbations of cardiopulmonary conditions and
other chronic diseases. In studies of influenza epidemics occurring from
1972-1973 through 1994-1995, excess deaths (ie, the number of influenza-
related deaths above a projected baseline of expected deaths) occurred
during 19 of 23 influenza epidemics. During those 19 influenza seasons,
estimated rates of influenza-associated deaths ranged from approximately
30 to >150 deaths/100,000 persons aged >=65 years. Older adults account
for >90% of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza. From 1972-1973
through 1994-1995, >20,000 influenza-associated deaths were estimated to
occur during each 11 different US epidemics, and >40,000 influenza-
associated deaths were estimated for each of 6 of these 11 epidemics. In the
US, pneumonia and influenza deaths might be increasing in part because the
number of older persons is increasing."

[Note: deaths per 100,000 in the >65 age group have increased after 1980.]

"SAFETY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF FLUZONE (SUBVIRION) IN INFANTS
BELOW THE AGE OF 6 MONTHS HAVE NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED."

"The majority of influenza vaccine distributed in the US contains thimerosal,
a mercury-containing compound, as a preservative. Thimerosal has been
used in US vaccines since the 1930s." [read rest on pg 4-5]

"CONTRAINDICATIONS
INFLUENZA VIRUS IS PROPAGATED IN EGGS FOR THE PREPARATION OF
INFLUENZA VIRUS VACCINE. THEREFORE, FLUZONE SHOULD NOT BE
ADMINISTERED TO ANYONE WITH A HISTORY OF HYPERSENSITIVITY
(ALLERGY), ESPECIALLY ANAPHYLACTIC REACTIONS, TO EGGS OR EGG
PRODUCTS. IT IS ALSO A CONTRAINDICATION TO ADMINISTER FLUZONE
TO INDIVIDUALS KNOWN TO BE SENSITIVE TO THIMEROSAL. EPINEPHRINE
INJECTION (1:1000) MUST BE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE SHOULD AN ACUTE
ANAPHYLACTIC REACTION OCCUR DUE TO ANY COMPONENT OF FLUZONE.

Fluzone should not be administered to patients with acute respiratory or
other active infections or illnesses. Immunization should be delayed in a
patient with an active neurologic disorder, but should be considered when
the disease process has been stabilized.

WARNINGS
Fluzone should not be administered to individuals who have a prior history of
Guillain-BarrT syndrome (GBS). If Fluzone is administered to
immunosuppressed persons, the expected antibody response may not be
obtained. As with any vaccine, vaccination with Fluzone may not protect
100% of susceptible individuals."
"Since the likelihood of febrile convulsions is greater in children 6 months
through 35 months of age, special care should be taken in weighing relative
risks and benefits of vaccination.

Prior to an injection of any vaccine, all known precautions should be taken to
prevent adverse reactions. This includes a review of the patient's history
with respect to possible sensitivity to the vaccine or similar vaccine, to
possible sensitivity to dry natural latex rubber, previous immunization
history, current health status (see CONTRAINDICATIONS and WARNINGS
sections) and a knowledge of the current literature concerning the use of the
vaccine under consideration. Special care should be taken to prevent
injection into a blood vessel."

"Systemic Reactions
Fever, malaise, myalgia, and other systemic symptoms can occur following
vaccination and most often affect persons who have had no exposure to the
influenza virus antigens in the vaccine (e.g., young children).1,14 These
reactions begin 6 to 12 hours after vaccination and can persist for 1-2 days.
Recent placebo-controlled trials demonstrate that among older persons and
healthy young adults, administration of split-virus vaccine is not associated
with higher rates of systemic symptoms (e.g., fever, malaise, myalgia, and
headache) when compared with placebo injections. 1Immediate -
presumably allergic - reactions (e.g., hives, angioedema, allergic asthma,
and systemic anaphylaxis) rarely occur after influenza vaccination. These
reactions probably result from hypersensitivity to certain vaccine
components; the majority of reactions likely are caused by residual egg
protein. Although current influenza vaccines contain only a limited quantity
of egg protein, this protein can induce immediate hypersensitivity reactions
among persons who have severe egg allergy. Persons who have experienced
hives, have had swelling of the lips or tongue, or have experienced acute
respiratory distress or collapse after eating eggs should consult a physician
for appropriate evaluation to help determine if vaccine should be
administered. Persons who have documented immunoglobulin E (IgE)--
mediated hypersensitivity to eggs--including those who have had
occupational asthma or other allergic responses to egg protein--also might
be at increased risk for allergic reactions to influenza vaccine, and
consultation with a physician should be considered. Protocols have been
published for safely administering influenza vaccine to persons with egg
allergies. 1,15 [.. continues on with GBS, etc]

By Kristine Severyn, R.Ph., Ph.D.

Although influenza is associated with more disease, hospitalization, and
death in "at risk" populations, no adequate controlled studies exist which
prove that influenza vaccine reduces the incidence of influenza in these
groups.

Past studies by NH Arden, et al, of type A(H3N2) influenza vaccine in nursing
home patients yielded an average of only 27 percent efficacy with four
studies demonstrating vaccine efficacy at 0, 2, 8 and 9 percent. Poor vaccine
efficacy can even occur when the vaccine virus is "essentially identical" to
that virus which is causing the outbreak. For influenza B vaccine, studies
conducted by Arden range from 0 percent to 36 percent effective, averaging
21 percent.

Considering that more than 90 percent of pneumonia and influenza deaths
occur in persons 65 years of age or older, but that about 65 percent of all
deaths (from any cause) occur in this age group anyway, it is nearly
impossible to prove if flu shots significantly increase life expectancy in the
elderly. Indeed one study of elderly Medicare patients in Ohio and
Pennsylvania, published in Options for the Control of Influenza II, showed
"no demonstrated effect of influenza vaccine in preventing death or limiting
the length of hospital stay."

Instead of being an effective prevention, evidence indicates that flu shots
may be useless. Although endorsed and funded by federal and state
governments the shots seem only to benefit the companies that make them,
public health bureaucrats who promote them, and medical personnel who
administer them.

The lack of worth of the flu vaccine is shown in a nutshell. The combined
number of deaths from pneumonia and influenza declined greatly from 1900
to 1950 and continued to decline slowly until 1979 and thereafter begin to
rise until the year 2000 experiended the same rate of combined deaths from

• Annual Flu Deaths:
The Big Lie
By Neil Z. Miller
http://thinktwice.com/flu_lie.htm

The following edited information is from the Maine (US) Lung Association website.
There was an excellent graph at http://mainelung.org/learn_with_us/lhi2/fluG2.html, now
archived at http://www.vaclib.org/sites/fluG2.html

which shows for the years 1979-1998, combined pneumonia and influenza deaths:
US population 65-74 (graph shows about 60 deaths per 100,000)
US population 75-84 (graph shows about 200-250 deaths per 100,000)
US population 85 and up, (graph shows about 750 up to 1150 (in 1988),
back to over 1000 deaths per 100,000)

"Over the past twenty years, age specific death rates for pneumonia and influenza have increased
in the older adult populations (65+ years), and decreased in the childhood population (0-14
years), and have remained relatively constant in other population subgroups.

The national data indicate a significant rise in the age specific pneumonia and influenza death
rates among people 85 years and older.

"Source: NCHS, 2000a,b; NCHS 1999. Rates are age adjusted to the 1940 US population.

Nationally, death rates from pneumonia and influenza have remained relatively constant since
the 1980s (approximately 12-13 deaths per 100,000 population). ..." [for a population of 280
million X 12/100k = 33,600 deaths. (combined flu & pneumonia)]

In the time period that death rates from flu increased in the older sub-population, the
following pro vaccine -short course- thoughtfuly informs us that the vaccination rates also
increased!

http://www.nursingceu.com/NCEU/courses/influenza/
influenza.html (short course)
Each year, influenza has a mortality cost of over 20,000 lives, particularly in patients over 65
with chronic co-morbidities. Fortunately, vaccination levels have risen dramatically since 1987
(33% to 65% ).

[Fortunately, in what way, for whom? Could it be the vaccines are worthless??? ] See our section
below on graphs and scroll down for a table and links to better estimates (by the CDC) of the
actual number of deaths associated with the flu versus the much larger number of flu and
pneumonia combined.

2000: The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), a branch of the CDC knew that "Over
the past twenty years, age specific death rates for pneumonia and influenza have increased in the
older adult populations..." at the same time as flu vaccination rates also increased. (A)

In October of 2002, this information was posted at: http://www.vaclib.org/basic/fluindex.htm .

February 2005: Study conducted by NIH funded by National Vaccine Program published
showing flu vaccine is worthless in preventing deaths amoung elderly. (B)

Still the NIH and CDC continue to recommend a worthless procedure.
A $Billion still buys a lot of ignor-ance of vaccine facts.

(B)The following quotes are from http://www.nelh.nhs.uk/hth/flu_vaccine.asp
"The article was based on a modelling study (2) to investigate trends in winter deaths associated
with the flu during a time period when vaccination coverage among the elderly had increased.
The research found that there was no relationship between increased vaccination coverage and
declining mortality among any age group."

Where does the evidence come from?
Dr Lone Simonsen and colleagues at the National Institute of Health, Bethesda MD, and the
Entropy Institute, Boston, USA conducted the study. The research was funded by the Unmet
Needs programme from the National Vaccine Program Office, Washington DC.
[See also http://pubs.ama-assn.org/media/2005a/0214.dtl#flu1]

"The coverage of flu vaccination increased from 16% to 65% over the study period." [1968-
2001]

Reference: February 15, 2005:
(2) " Simonsen L, Reichert TA, Viboud C, Blackwelder WC, Taylor RJ, Miller MA. Impact of
influenza vaccination on seasonal mortality in the US elderly population. Archives of Internal
Medicine 2005,165:265-272."

Reference:
* Actually, in 2005 the CDC has a $2,114,000,000 (2+ billion) budget for "Immunization." See
http://www.hhs.gov/budget/06budget/cdc.html
[2005] "CDC's total program level includes $1.6 billion in mandatory VFC funding, and $265
million in Public Health Service evaluation transfers."
For Influenza Funding alone, the proposed budget for 2006 includes $197 million for CDC and
VFC (Vaccines for Children) plus another $439 million for HHS Influenza Funding program
activities. A total of $636,000,000.

This is not to mention the portion of the bioterrorism preparedness program which is devoted in
some way to vaccines.

The BioElectric Shield Company has been dedicated to helping create a more balanced and peaceful
world one person at a time since 1990.

In the 1980’s, when Dr. Charles Brown, DABCN, (Diplomate American College of Chiropractic
Neurologists), the inventor of the Shield, became aware that a certain group of his patients exhibited
consistent symptoms of stress and a slower rate of healing that the rest of his patient population. This
group of patients all worked long hours in front of CRT computer screens for many hours a day, and
usually 6 days a week. He began researching the effects of electromagnetic radiation in the literature, and
found there were many associated health effects. He wanted to help these patients, and hoped that he
could come up with a low-tech, high effect product.

In 1989, he had a series of waking dream that
showed him a specific pattern of crystals. Each
of 3 dreams clarified the placement of the
crystals. He showed the patterns to an individual
who can see energy and she confirmed that the
pattern produced several positive effects. She
explained that the Shield interacts with a
person’s energy field (aura) to strengthen and
balance it. Effectively it created a cocoon of
energy that deflects away energies that are
not compatible. In addition, the Shield acts to
balance the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies of the aura.

A series of studies was conducted to investigate the possible protection from EMF's wearing this kind of
device. Happily the studies were consistent in showing that people remained strong when exposed to
these frequencies. Without the shield, most people showed measurable weakening in the presence of both
EMF’s and stress. Of interest to us was that these same effects were noted when people IMAGINED
stress in their lives. It seems obvious that how we think and what we are exposed to physically both have
an energy impact on us. The Shield addresses energy issues-stabilizing a person's energy in adverse
conditions. See “How the Shield Works” for more information.

Since that time, we have sold tens of thousands of Shields and had feedback from more people than we
could possibly list. Here are just a few of the testimonials we have gotten back from Shield wearers.

Dr. David Getoff was one of the earliest practitioners to begin wearing a Shield and doing his own testing
with patients with very good results (video).

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make the BioElectric Shield available worldwide. In doing so, we feel we are part of the
solution to the health crisis that is, in part, caused by exposure to electromagnetic radiation and well as
exposure to massive amounts of stress, from situations and other people’s energy.

We also want to bring more peace, balance and joy to the world - and the Shield offers a vibration of
peace, love, and balance in a world filled with fear and uncertainty. Selling a Shield may seem like a
small thing in the scheme of things, but each Shield helps one more person find a greater sense of ease,
balance and protection, allowing them to focus on living their dreams

To enhance your sense of well-being, (In addition to the Shield, ) we offer other products that provide
health and wellness benefits on many levels.

By working together we can, and are, accomplishing miracles.

Charles W. Brown, D.C., D.A.B.C.N.

Dr. Brown graduated in 1979 w ith honors from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He
is a Di plomate of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and a Di plomate of
the A merican B oard o f Chiropractic Neu rologists. He al so i s cer tified i n Ap plied
Kinesiology. Dr. Brown has had his own radio show "Health Tips". Additionally, he
has t aught an atomy at B oston Un iversity an d t he New E ngland I nstitute o f M assage

He invented the BioElectric Shield, Conditioning Yourself for Peak Performance (a DVD of series of
Peak Performance Postures with Declarations) and Dr. Brown’s Dust and Allergy Air Filters, as well as
Dr. Brown’s Dust and Allergy Anti-Microbial, Anti-Viral Spray. He is presently working on other
inventions.

Dr. Brown’s experience of the Shield is that it has helped him move deeper into spiritual realms, quantum
energy, and creative meditative spaces. It has always been his desire to help others, and he is grateful that
the Shield is helping so many people worldwide.

Virginia Bonta Brown, M.S., O.T.R.

As child, I always wanted others feel better. As a teenager, I volunteered as a
Candy Striper at the local hospital, wheeling around a cart of gifts to patients’
rooms. The hospital setting didn’t really draw me, so summers were spend
teaching tennis to kids at a wonderful camp in Vermont. With the idea of
becoming a psychologist, I received a B.S. degree from Hollins College in

BioElectricShield.com | About the Shield | Shield Products | In the Media | Contact
psychology and worked with drug addicts for a year. Called by the practicality of Occupational Therapy, I
received an M.S. degree in Occupational Therapy from Boston University in 1974

For the next 16 years, working with ADD, ADHD, autistic and other special needs children was my
passion. Because of my specialty in Sensory Integration Dysfunction (a technique based on neurology), I
met Anne Shumway Cook, RPT, PhD, a brilliant PT, with a PhD in neurophysiology. We created special
therapy techniques for children with vestibular (balance and position in space) dysfunction while she
worked with the Vestibular Treatment Center at Good Samaritan, and while I managed the therapy
services of the Children's Program at this same hospital in Portland, Oregon. A fun project at that time
also included collaborating with a team of other therapists to create a therapy in the public schools manual
for OT, PT and Adapted PT procedures. It included goals and treatment plans which has served as a
model for nearly every school district in the United States. There was nothing quite so satisfying as
seeing a child move from frustration to joy as they began to master their coordination and perceptual
skills.

For the next seven years, I shifted my focus. Married to Dr. Charles Brown, we decided that I’d begin to
work with him in his Pain and Allergy Clinic, first in Boston and then in Billings, Montana. During this
time I began to hear people talk about how thoroughly stressed out they were by their job environment.
Their neck and shoulders hurt from sitting in front of computer screens. They were fatigued and
overloaded dealing with deadlines and other stressed out people! They wanted to be sheltered from the
“storm” of life. Though conversation, myofascial deep tissue and cranio-sacral therapy helped them, the
stress never disappeared. It was our patients who really let us know that something that managed their
environment and their energy would be a wonderful miracle in their lives.

What could we do to help them? I became an OT so I could help children and adults accomplish whatever
it was that they wanted to do. When my husband, Dr. Brown, invented the Shield, initially I felt I was
abandoning my patients. Running the company meant I didn’t spend as much time in the clinic. But then
I saw what the Shield was accomplishing with people. They got Shields and their lives began to improve.
People told me they felt less overwhelmed, didn’t get the headaches in front of the computer, were less
affected by other people’s energy and enjoyed life more. I began noticing the same thing!

In 2000, we received a request for a customized shield for a child with ADD/ADHD. After it was
designed, our consultant told us that she could create a special shield that would help any person with
these symptoms. Read more about the ADD/ADHD Shield.

When we started the company in 1990, I was still seeing patients nearly full time. I was wearing the
Shield and began to notice something different about my own life. At the clinic, I noticed my energy was
very steady all day. Instead of being exhausted at the end of the day, particularly when I had treated
particularly needy patients, I was pleasantly tired and content. I noticed I was more detached from the
patient’s problem. In other words, I didn’t allow it to tire me. Instead I became more compassionate and
intuitive about what they needed to help them. I was able to hear my Guides more clearly as they helped
me help them. As I wore it during meditation, I felt myself go deeper into a space of Unity of all things,
from people to mountains to stars.

Over the years, I’ve spoken with many, many people, from all walks of life. Because they consistently
tell me how much it’s helped them, I become more committed each year to offer this to as many people
as possible. It is my belief that the Shield is a gift from the Divine, and that those who wear it will be
helped on earth to accomplish their own mission, with greater health and greater compassion. For this
reason, it is my desire to provide the blessing of the BioElectric Shield to as many people as possible.

Carolyn (Workinger) Nau:

I joined the BioElectric Shield Company in January 1994 when the shipping and order
department consisted of one computer and a card table. With my help, the company
grew to what it is today. From 1994 to 2000 I traveled and did approximately 100 trade
shows, talking to people, muscle testing and really finding out how much difference the
Shield makes in people’s lives.

An empath and natural intuitive, I have personally found the Shield to be one of my most important and
valued possessions, as it assists me in not taking on everyone else’s stuff. That ability has also been
invaluable when I talk to and connect with clients in person, over the phone or even via email. I am
frequently able to “tune in” and help advise on the best Shield choice for an individual.

I felt a strong pull to move to California and reluctantly left the company in 2000. While in California I
met the love of my life, David Nau. After being married on the pier in Capitola, we relocated to
Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he’d accepted a job as design director of an award winning exhibit firm.
David is an artist and designer, and has taken all the newest photos of the Shields. They are the most
beautiful and accurate images we have ever had!
Through the magic of the internet I was able to return to working with the company in January 2008. I
love how things have changed to allow me to live where I want and work from home. I am fully involved
and even more excited about the Shield’s benefits and the need for people to be strengthened and
protected. I am thrilled to be back and loving connecting with old and new customers. It’s great to pick up
the phone and have someone say, “Wow, I remember you. You sold me a Shield in Vegas in 1999”

How did I get started making Energy Necklaces? It's not every day that going to a trade show can totally
change your life. It did mine. I must have been ready for a drastic change. I just didn't know it. I guess
I’ve just always been a natural Quester.

Quite by chance, I went to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee. The show is an entire convention
center filled with beads, baubles and semi-precious stones. I looked over my purchases at the end of the
first day and realized I didn't have enough of some for earrings. So I went back with a friend who
normally is the voice of reason. I thought if I got carried away she’d help me stop. Joke was on me.

I was unable to resist all those incredible goodies. My friend turned out to be a very bad influence, she’d
find fabulous things and hold semi-precious and even precious stones in front of me saying "Have you
seen this?". How can a woman resist all that beauty? I can’t! I couldn't. I walked out with a suitcase full
of beads and stones. The only problem was, I didn’t even know how to make jewelry.

I spent the summer taking classes, reading books, practicing jewelry making. Immediately people were
stopping me in the street asking about the jewelry I was wearing. It finally dawned on me that just maybe
I was meant to design and share my creations. Thus Bold Bodacious Jewelry was born.

I still laugh about this whole process. Obviously the Universe or someone was guiding me. Looking back
it should have been obvious that I was buying enough to start a business. But at the time, it just felt like
the right thing to do. Not a conscious plan. Sometimes following your gut can change your life.

In the fall of 2008, I felt a pull to examine how various gemstones could enhance the protective and
healing effects of the BioElectric Shield. I also wanted to wear great jewelry and my gold and diamond
Shied at the same time, so I created something new so I could do that. After making a few “Shield energy
necklaces”, I was convinced that not only was my jewelry beautiful and fun to wear, it had additional
healing qualities as well. Since then I’ve been immersed in studying stones and their properties, paying
particular attention to the magical transformation that happens when stones are combined. Much like the
Shield, the combined properties of the stones in my jewelry are more powerful than the same combination
of stones loose in your hand. To view gem properties and styles to complement your shield, please visit
