Life in a brave new COVID-19 world #2

Hayo van der Woude, Mullumbimby

For evidence-based medicine, don’t look beyond Italy, where flu-vaccinated people died at a higher rate from COVID-19.

So the NRL players are, in my opinion, wrongly advised by the PM, and medical fraternity, to take the shots. I believe that these vaccines usually contain serious toxins.

Before ScoMo and today’s doctors were born, we had implicit faith in government and medicine.

Then laissez-faire capitalism saw corporate pharmaceutical giants become globalised, setting the agenda for governments and world governing bodies.

If Australia is any indication, it’s a very profitable business model. Health evolved into a mammoth sickness industry, where customers hardly need to show ID or use a bankcard. Natural health modalities are squeezed out.

This is a system the majority of us have been conditioned to trust, by sheer power of money and influence. Call it mind control, advertising, or political spin.

We need solid evidence for COVID-19 solutions. But Big Pharma is not required to prove that vaccines work.

    Your comments indicate why it’s not a good idea for people to accept advice from amateurs like you and me, Hayo. Scientists would not jump to a conclusion on the basis of one set of data like this (which you don’t incidentally cite). This simple correlation is not enough ‘evidence’ on which to bars advice. They would look at the size and source of the sample, comparative data from other countries and the range of variables – eg is it mainly the older and/ or immune threatened population of Italy that got flu vaccination, the same group more vulnerable to lethal COVID19 complications.

    I don’t know, but in the absence of the expertise to interpret the exhaustive research that goes into these questions I’d hesitate to conclude that vaccines are ‘full of toxins’.

    Not required to provide proof of safety and efficacy for vaccines? Call me mind-controlled but that I don’t believe. And for some reason we don’t apply the same ‘evidence-based medicine’ standards to alternative therapies.

    There’s lots of evidence of toxins in vaccines and lots of people have had their health adversely affected by vaccinations.

    Beyond the mercury-based preservative thimerosal, a known neurotoxin that has been linked to many serious health conditions including autism, vaccines are rife with other often questionable components, such as:

    Egg protein
    Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
    Polysorbate 80
    Aborted human fetal tissue

    If Flu vaccination would fix Covid-19. they would use flu-vaccinations.
    Is that not logical?
    That is why in each country there is a race among scientists to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

    Brad, my point was about the evidence trail and deductive process that led to what seemed to be the conclusion that people in Italy died from COVID19 in greater numbers because of toxins they received in the influenza vaccine. It wasn’t a desire to unleash another Byron style onslaught of the general vaccination debate because I’m sure you’re right.

    Look, I’d rather take my chances with those microscopic nasties that cause things like smallpox, polio, tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria etc than let anyone put one of those substances you list in my body, especially gelatin or egg protein! And behind all this is a fundamental question that is never addressed: should we indeed be fighting these diseases?

    After all viruses and bacteria are just trying to exist and reproduce like the rest of us and who knows what eradication will do to our biodiversity.

    Historically, we probably owe a great debt of gratitude to our pathogenic friends who have ensured that population has been kept in check with the added bonus of those remaining honing our immune strength. Despite this, since a first inquisitive ancestor attempted to manipulate this robust system by
    experimenting with our plant life, we have waged an unfair fight against these maligned and misunderstood creatures.

    For a period of history, nature had a significant victory when polio terrorised the western world. Scientists now theorise that it was the significant post-war lifting of living and hygiene standards that robbed children of the immunity that their third-world counterparts (those that survived) inherited. Short lived, this was quickly crushed underfoot by the likes of Salk and Sabin. And the warmongers continue – Australia’s Ian Frazer is decimating the human papilloma viruses that cause cervical cancer.

    The lesson in all this? If we are all prepared to toughen up – live in poverty and squalor, fight disease on a level playing field and realise that pain, disability, reduced life expectancy and high levels of infant mortality are in the long-term interests of the population – we’ll be fine. And those big Pharma bastards, as well as the complementary brigade making dubious claims, will go broke!

    The flu vaccine is not for Covid19. Its use must be optional. I have been adversely affected by previous flu vaccines. Very different from whooping cough, tetanus, diphthera, polio, smallpox. Big Pharma have a lot to answer to.
