When I first started writing this blog in 2009, the hysteria over Swine Flu had just started to gain momentum.
A number of my early posts tackled the topic of the Swine Flu and specifically warned people not to get the vaccine as it was clearly a media induced frenzy purposefully designed to rake in billions in profit for the pharmaceutical industry.
Medical experts agreed with Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, Head of Health of the Council of Europe and an eminent epidemiologist, calling the Swine Flu “a false pandemic to sell vaccines” as well as ”one of the greatest medical scandals of the century”.
In one of those early posts, I wrote about the strong anecdotal link between miscarriages and stillbirths and the Swine Flu vaccine. The internet was abuzz at that time with women claiming to have miscarried within hours of receiving the vaccine and these reports were sweeping pregnancy and baby forums across the web.
Now, science has confirmed what women already knew by observation – getting the Swine Flu (H1N1) vaccine when you are pregnant is dangerous for the fetus in many cases causing spontaneous abortion.
The study, published online September 27, 2012 by the Journal of Human and Experimental Toxicology, examined three flu seasons, starting in 2008/2009 to see if the addition of the Swine Flu vaccine in 2009/2010 did indeed cause an increase in fetal death.
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database was searched for reports of miscarriage and stillbirth following administration of the flu vaccines to pregnant women. The researchers found nothing short of a huge spike in miscarriages and stillbirth during the 2009/2010 Swine Flu “Pandemic”.
During the 2008/2009 flu season, the unadjusted miscarriage/stillbirth report rates were 6.8 cases per million pregnant women vaccinated with the regular flu vaccine. This rate skyrocketed to 77.8 cases when the H1N1 shot was added to the mix in 2009/2010 – an increase of over 10 times!
Remember too that many thousands of women likely never even reported a miscarriage after receiving the Swine Flu (H1N1) vaccine. The VAERS database is notorious for underreporting adverse vaccine events as many doctors either don’t submit the information to the database when a patient reports a problem or the patient never reports the event to the doctor in the first place.
As a result, the reality is that these numbers are likely far higher than even this study reports.
The researchers did indeed conclude that the “pandemic” Swine Flu vaccine caused a synergistic toxicity with the regular flu vaccine by issuing the following statement:
“Thus, a synergistic fetal toxicity likely resulted from the administration of both the pandemic (A-H1N1) and seasonal influenza vaccines during the 2009/2010 season.”
What’s The Point?
So what’s the point of revisiting the past and spotlighting this study that highlights the link between the Swine Flu vaccine and miscarriage and stillbirth?
It is very important to spotlight this study because women who are pregnant or will be soon potentially during the coming flu season need to know that the H1N1 vaccine is now included as part of the regular seasonal flu vaccine. Pregnant women who choose to get the flu shot this year will get H1N1 in the same jab! This is very scary given the results of this newly published study.
Secondly, this study shows that it is foolish to wait for “the science” to confirm what people have already figured out by observation. Anecdotal evidence is very valuable in our toxic world and if there is a buzz going on about something like the Swine Flu vaccine causing miscarriage, it would be wise to heed it!
If you want to live a healthy life, you had better start honing your powers of observation and plain old common sense. Anecdotal evidence is crucial in our modern, chemical soup world and waiting for “the science” to come in is a very dangerous proposition indeed!
