Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
"If presumably safer "attenuated" flu vaccines are supposed to protect against influenza and its sometimes deadly complications, then why do vaccinated mice have up to 100-fold higher levels of flu-associated pathogenic bacteria than non-vaccinated mice?
A concerning new study published in mBio, an open access journal of the American Society of Microbiology, titled, "Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Enhances Colonization of Streptoc...," reveals that live attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIVs) lead to the rapid and sustained overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria in the upper respiratory tract of mice at colonization densities up to 100-fold higher than non-vaccinated mice.
This is the first study of its kind to demonstrate that vaccination with a live attenuated viral vaccine can dramatically alter the colonization behavior of human bacterial pathogens in a manner very similar to that following infection from 'wild-type', i.e. naturally circulating, flu infections.
Influenza infection is well known to contribute to serious health complications, but this is the first time that a vaccine strain of flu has been found to induce similar alterations in disease-linked bacteria."
"In other words, even if the significant increases in bacterial infections did not cause increased morbidity and/or mortality in vaccinated populations, their transmissibility to others would increase due to higher levels and longer duration of carriage of pathogenic bacteria. This is, of course, the primary argument used to pressure the non-vaccinated to succumb to immunization: namely, that the non-vaccinated are somehow more likely to transmit disease than the vaccinated. If this animal study applies to humans, the opposite would be true. LAIV vaccination would both increase the number of bacteria the vaccinated carry, and would prolong their carriage time -- and hence transmissibility -- for 28 days or longer after administration. This is in addition to the fact that even the FluMist live vaccine insert provides ample evidence that the vaccine can infect the recipient with an infectious form of influenza that can be shed to others as long as three weeks after receiving it."
