First Genetically Engineered Flu Vaccine Now on the Market
Hailed as the Flu Cure Everyone’s Been Waiting For – But It’s Made with GE Insects
So maybe you should keep on waiting. This is a scary development, because there have been no safety studies, and it has no bearing on hospitalizations or sick days lost. Watch out! You’re being played for a fool – so don’t buy the lie.
- To speed up flu vaccine production, the US FDA has approved a new insect-based, genetically engineered flu vaccine, as well as vaccines grown in cultures of dog kidney cells rather than eggs
- This year’s flu vaccine contains a very good match to the circulating strains, yet the reported efficacy of the vaccine is still only slightly over 60 percent
- In a wholly irresponsible move, some “health experts” are now proclaiming the conventional egg-based flu vaccine safe for those with severe egg allergies, and that the benefit of the flu vaccine (which this year has an official efficacy rating of about 60 percent) outweighs the potential risk of lethal anaphylaxis
- According to a recent review of published research, flu vaccines are ineffective at best, and produce neurological complications at worst, while having no effect at all on hospitalizations or working days lost. For infants, inactivated flu vaccine was found to have the same effectiveness as a placebo
