A friend sent this to me and it is rather shocking. I'm not an alarmist, but I would read this before getting the vaccine, I'm having serious doubts about getting the shot.


Please read this or at least skim it all to the bottom and forward it widely. Help protect your friends and families from being damaged from this. Every person you send it to could be one life you save from a lifetime of pain and suffering.

Also, please don't take my word for any of this but do your own research starting with the links to articles and video interviews from Doctors provided at the bottom of this email. The Doctors in the articles and videos are screaming from rooftops for people to avoid the non-FDA approved ingredient SQUALENE that will be in the swine flu shots as an immune booster. Squalene boosts the immune response of the vaccine so people will only need one shot instead of two, allowing twice as many people to be immunized. Squalene will only be in the shots and not in the nasal swine flu vaccine.

Squalene has been proven to be what caused the Gulf War Syndrome from independent investigations. More on this in a minute but you must avoid this ingredient at all costs.....

Before I say any more, also be aware that this vaccine booster is not being used in any of the swine flu vaccine trials going on currently but will be in the final vaccine given to the masses. Read more about this later in this email....

I have done a lot of reading and listening to concerned doctors about this topic. I'm just passing on what these doctors are saying.

For starters they say don't buy the hype:

Did you know that the swine flu is proving to cause less hospitalizations and less deaths than last years' seasonal flu! It is very, very over-hyped and not a big deal!

Don't buy into the fear campaign.

The doctors (5 male and 3 female) I list at the bottom of this email are begging people to not take the swine flu vaccine. These 8 doctors are just a few of the many concerned doctors.

I'm not even going to talk about the full dose of Thimerosal (50% mercury by weight) that will be in the swine flu vaccine at 250 times the amount of mercury <http://thebirdflupandemic.com/archives/the-swine-flu-vaccine-contains-25000-times-the-amount-of-mercury-that-is-considered-safe> [LINK] <http://thebirdflupandemic.com/archives/the-swine-flu-vaccine-contains-25000-times-the-amount-of-mercury-that-is-considered-safe> that is considered safe if you were to have the mercury in your food or beverage. This alone is reason enough to not have your children take it.

Why are so many doctors telling people to avoid the Swine flu vaccine?

Because the swine flu vaccine will have the booster(adjuvant) SQUALENE which has been proven from independent studies to be what caused Gulf War syndrome from the Anthrax vaccine given to the troops during Gulf War I which the government had to admit had squalene in it after they were sued by the gulf war vets.

Squalene has never been approved by the FDA but is being offered in the swine flu vaccine under "EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATIONS" not requiring the long clinical trials normally necessary.

Squalene has also not been thoroughly tested for safety in Children or Pregnant Women.

The FDA hasn't allowed it be used before because of the very justified concerns about it being too dangerous from animal testing. They're allowing it for the swine flu vaccine because of what they say are the special circumstances of this emergency and the need for a booster. Squalene allows people to gain immunity to the swine flu with only one shot instead of two so that twice as many doses of vaccine will be available.

--25% of the 697,000 US military personnel got Gulf War Syndrome after getting the Anthrax vaccine.

--25% of the troops that never left the U.S.A. but still received the Anthrax Vaccine containing squalene got Gulf War Syndrome!

They didn't get Gulf War syndrome because they were in Iraq ..........

The Gulf War Syndrome sufferers developed symptoms including arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, Sjorgren’s syndrome, chronic diarrhea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.” <http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/08/04/Squalene-The-Swine-Flu-Vaccines-Dirty-Little-Secret-Exposed.aspx#_edn12>

More about Squalene:

Your body has squalene in every cell of your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil <http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2000/01/30/olive-oil-colon-cancer.aspx> and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.

The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body.Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.

After injection of squalene your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.< /font>

Once your immune system creates antibodies to squalene it will attack the human body destroying the squalene in your nervous system and brain for the rest of your life.

Proof Gulf War Vets were damaged from the squalene that was in the Anthrax vaccine:

A test was developed to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients, and a clear link was established between the contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who had been injected with the vaccine containing squalene.

A study conducted at Tulane Medical School and published in the February 2000 issue of Experimental Molecular Pathology included these stunning statistics:

“ … the substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%) GWS patients immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had antibodies to squalene.

In contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum antibodies to squalene.”[xi] <http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles...sed.aspx#_edn11>

Link: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles...et-Exposed.aspx

Their bodies are being attacked daily by the antibodies to squalene and this attack will never stop.

You say:

They're testing the swine flu vaccine....

But they're not testing it with ANY ADJUVANTS(boosters)!

None of the current tests are being done with SQUALENE. NONE. This has been verified by Neurologist Dr. Blaylock.

Here is a quote from Dr. Blaylock on his site:

"There are 5 tests scheduled for safety before mass vaccinations will resume. I looked up on clinicaltrials.gov the actual studies being done. It is instructive to note that the only studies actually being done do not contain any adjuvant (the immune booster) either for babies or adults. Yet, when the mass vaccinations begin, the vaccines will have adjuvant added, possibly squalene."

They're adding this booster to the final product after testing it pre-adjuvant. Plus the first rounds of the swine flu vaccine are coming out now in the form of a nasal vaccine. These nasal vaccines coming out first will NOT have squalene so people will think it's safe after no one gets injured but the shots will have it.

Plus most of the symptoms caused by squalene are long term problems that won't show up immediately but will cause a lifetime of suffering.

DO NOT GET THE SHOTS. It's not worth the risks for a flu that is no worse than the regular seasonal flu......

If you insist on getting the swine flu vaccine get the AstraZeneca nasal vaccine MedImmune because they don't have squalene.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF from any flus or colds:

A majority of the doctors below say to do one thing from new research that has come out the last couple years:

They say to simpl y take 5,000 IU per day of Vitamin D3 for adults and 2000 IU of Vitamin D3 for children which can be bought at the grocery store. The FDA's RDA is way too low say these doctors.

Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. In the winter people get low vitamin D levels because their skin gets less sunshine, and low vitamin D levels are why people get sick more often in the winter. Building up your vitamin D levels has been proven to be more effective than a flu vaccine at preventing the flu!

Dr. Mercola(he runs the #1 most popular health newsletter), Dr. Blaylock(he is a retired neurologist), Dr. Rima Laibow(she runs another popular health newsletter), Dr. Anders Bruun Laursen, Dr. Kent Holtorf, Dr. Nass(she is a vaccine expert), Dr. Sherry Tenpenny(she runs the Vaccine Information Center), and Dr. Leonard Horowitz (author and public health expert) all are screaming from rooftops to stop people from harming themselves from the swine flu vaccine.

Here are links to the research they are passing on to you that has been compiled on the dangers of squalene:

This is scary stuff!! When I got my seasonal flu shot the the Battle Creek VAMC I asked my regular team nurse if the H1N1 vaccine would be available soon, she stated she didn't think it would be available through the VAMC. What does that tell you?? Glad you posted this tagandbag.

I don't know that the vaccine is harmfull. But, I do know swine flu is already making it's way through my community and likewize in most states. Chances are I have already been exposed to it. Chances are the majority of this population will have had it or been exposed before mass vaccinations begin later this month. I see no reason to be vaccinated for something I've allready been exposed to or have gotten. I did have flu symtoms last week. I lived. I'm thinking I'll be okay without the shot.

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.

      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.

      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?

      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?

      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?

      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
