Dear VRAN Members and Friends,
Now that the annual flu vaccine hysteria has finally subsided, we are told that the current vaccine was only 9 percent effective in protecting older people from the H3N2 which was the strain causing the most illness this flu season. We’ve also received a number of testimonials reporting serious health injuries caused by the flu vaccine. Since 1999, independent researchers have been informing the world of the ineffectiveness of flu vaccines.
Yet another new study has found that the infection risk for flu was nearly the same in vaccinated and unvaccinated participants and that the vaccine didn't seem to protect participants who were exposed to flu in their own household.  "Influenza vaccination seemed to provide little or no protection against flu in the 2010-11 season - the only participants who seemed to benefit from the vaccine were those who hadn't been  vaccinated before."
VRAN has reported extensively on these findings. Do you wonder like we do, what will it take for the public to awaken from this deception and reject the annual flu vaccine ritual?

Ethyl Mercury in Vaccines: Was Hilleman Right? By Dr. F. Edward Yazbak MD, FAAP
Weighing in on the decades long debate on the toxicity of thimerosal in vaccines, Dr. Yazbak compares both old and new research on the issue. He points out that veteran vaccine researcher Maurice Hilleman’s concerns about mercury in vaccines have largely been ignored by vaccine policy makers. He also introduces a new study by Brazilian researchers who are concerned that, a simultaneous exposure to both methylmercuy and ethylmercury, “might result in enhanced neurotoxic effects in developing mammals.” ... read more

Bill Gates Continues ‘God’s Work’, Third World Vacine Workers Shot Dead by Christina England
“It appears that although Bill Gates wants to carry on with what he calls ‘God’s work,’ people living in the third world are beginning to make their feelings abundantly clear. It appears that they don’t want his vaccines or his charity, as more shootings were reported in Nigeria” ... read more
MMR & Autism – A Mothers Journey to Heal Her Child by Cynthia Stark
“It’s been a long journey of education for me. When my son was born, my mom insisted vaccines could cause problems. I’d never heard of this and without any scientific evidence I dismissed it. I thought if I did everything the doctor said, my child would be healthy. I actually considered it child abuse not to vaccinate. When my son reacted badly to each vaccine, I believed the doctor on blind faith without any scientific evidence that this was “normal” ... read more
Rising Numbers of Children with Autism in Ontario prompts Ontario Review
Ontario’s Auditor General will launch an unprecedented review of children’s autism services at a time when huge public interest has focused attention on services for a growing number of children with the neurodevelopmental disorder. Autism rates have climbed steadily to an estimated one in 88 children, who face a range of problems with communication, social interaction and behaviour ... read more
Autism: The race to discover a cure
"Something is causing these mutations, and we really need to consider that environment could be playing a major role in creating them," says Herbert, the Harvard neurologist and author of The Autism Revolution, a book which argues that the condition is a whole-body disorder.
Vaccines linked to a host of chronic illnesses
While the preceding mainstream articles dance around the theories of autism causation, vaccination is never mentioned as a possible “environmental” factor in the etiology of autism. Vaccines are linked not only to autism, but to many chronic conditions that used to be rare in children. The producers of the new documentary The Greater Good, provide a catalogue of over 200 studies that raise serious concerns about vaccine side effects.
Scientific and moral reasons we need an autism cure by Teresa Conrick
“Something is making our children more susceptible to latent and chronic infections which then wreak havoc medically and mentally. In the past two years, studies on children with an autism diagnosis reiterated just how important microbes and pathogens were in the gut of these children: "The latest research, conducted over the past several years, probes the controversial possibility that whatever is amiss in the gut is not just a symptom of autism, but one of the causes" ... read more
HPV Vaccines- Evidence of immense harm, By Heidi Stevenson
The benefit shown in the study was minimal, so small as to be questionable about whether any benefit is provided. 8% of the subjects reported a “serious event”, 32% reported a “medically significant condition”, 9% had spontaneous abortions, and 3% developed chronic conditions! These results were used to show that Cervarix was safe! How much harm must a vaccine do before it’s refused approval? ... read more
Illnesses erased, but vaccine may be giving rise to other diseases
“The department's figures show that for the three years prior to the vaccine's introduction in 2002, Alberta averaged 360 cases annually of invasive pneumococcal disease. Between 2008 and 2010 - by which point the immunization program was well established - there was an average of 387 cases a year" ... read more
Harvard study confirms fluoride reduces children’s IQ by Dr. Joseph Mercola
“A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.” ... read more
Flu shot didn't protect seniors well
Data found that a flu shot cut an older adult's risk of contracting a case of influenza A H3N2 that needed medical care by only nine per cent.  Dr. Michael Osterholm wants public health officials to be more frank with the public about the limitations of the flu vaccine. “What I worry about more than anything is the long-term credibility of science in public health,” he said. “Will people trust us if they don’t think that we’re being honest and forthright with the public data? Are we becoming nothing more than the anti-science people?” ... read more
Alternative flu shot (with adjuvant) used for those 65 & older – ramp up the immune system
Media reports of  an alternate flu vaccine for seniors don’t discuss the potential health risks associated with oil based adjuvants now being used in flu vaccines given to seniors.
Read VRAN’s thorough analysis of the new adjuvanted flu vaccine for seniors
“It certainly contains risky ingredients, the most concerning of which is MF59C.1. This is an adjuvant composed of squalene, polysorbate 80, and sorbitan trioleate in citrate buffer, an oil-in-water emulsion similar to the controversial adjuvant which was added to the GlaxoSmithKline ‘pandemic’ influenza vaccine used in 2009 and 2010" ... read more 
Narcolepsy afflicts European children following pandemic vaccine
"Scientists have published peer-reviewed studies from Sweden, Finland and Ireland showing that the risk of developing narcolepsy after the 2009-2010 vaccination campaign was between seven and 13 times higher for children who had Pandemrix than for their unvaccinated peers. Emmanuel Mignot, one of the world's leading experts on narcolepsy at Stanford University in the United States, says that the evidence is already clearly pointing in one direction. Mignot says, 'There's no doubt in my mind whatsoever that Pandemrix increased the occurrence of narcolepsy onset in children in some countries - and probably in most countries." ... read more
Risk of narcolepsy in children and young people receiving AS03 adjuvanted pandemic A/H1N1 2009 influenza vaccine: retrospective analysis
British Medical Journal news release
The pandemic (Arepanrix) vaccine used in Canada
...increased the narcolepsy risk significantly less than Pandemrix, the vaccine of choice in Finland. The difference between these vaccines is the way their viral components are produced. “Arepanrix has a different swine flu component,” explained Professor Outi Vaarala from THL [Finland National Institute for Health and Welfare] in a conference for narcolepsy experts in Helsinki ... read more
