Anyone who heard yesterday’s edition ofwill know that I have made a firm, personal, decision not to accept the swine flu vaccination. Although my reasons are a matter of personal choice, I believe that they are based upon logic:
- My Serrapeptase Adventure has freed me from the ‘toxic cocktail’ of prescription medication, so it makes little sense to me to accept a vaccination that is not compulsory
- I am not convinced that the risk of swine flu is significant enough, to merit unnecessary medical intervention
- I am concerned about the potentially negative impact of some of the individual ingredients, listed in the vaccines offered in the UK
- I am most concerned that it will not be possible to determine the long-term effects of this vaccination until it has been in long-term use, but there are a growing number of reports of negative reactions among people who have been vaccinated
- Since I do not have any means to independently evaluate all the available scientific data, I have decided that I will not take a vaccine, the benefits of which are at least as uncertain as the risks
As always, I will continue to be happy to learn, if any conclusive evidence becomes available, but I am as certain as I can be that the choice I must make is to vaccinate or to stay healthy. It is an easy choice for me to make. I choose health every time.
The National Pandemic Swine Flu Service in England closed yesterday (February 10th, 2010), due to a drop in cases and in the use of the service. At last! Less hype next time, please…
