The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwide marched against Monsanto in a global protest. There...ane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

The Food You Eat Controls Potency of Viral Infections

Poor nutrition leads to mutations that create more dangerous forms of the influenza virus and may contribute to newly virulent outbreaks of viral epidemics ranging from the common cold to AIDS and Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

Deficiencies of selenium allowed the human influenza virus to mutate into more virulent forms in mice, and a similar mutation is likely to occur in people.

Once the mutations have occurred, even mice with normal nutrition are more susceptible to the newly virulent strain.

Poor nutritional status may contribute to the emergence of new viral strains and might promote epidemics.

In the study, groups of mice with normal and selenium-deficient diets were exposed to Influenza A Bangkok, a mild strain of human influenza virus. Although investigators had expected the malnourished mice to be sicker than the well-fed ones, they confirmed that the virus also mutated to a greater degree in these mice.

Selenium, which is found in meat, is a component of an antioxidant enzyme that helps the body fight off infections. Most people in developed countries would not need to supplement their diet to maintain adequate levels of the mineral.

The study focused on the flu virus, which hospitalizes more than 100,000 people each year in the United States alone. The research also confirmed earlier studies into the causes of mutations of a virus, Coxsackie B3, linked to a heart disease known as Keshan disease.

The disease, once found in China among children and women of childbearing age with diets low in selenium, was largely eradicated by dietary supplements.

DR. MERCOLA'S COMMENT:

Most people are stuck in a belief system that puts most of the responsibility for illness on these big bad infectious bacteria and viruses.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Even Louis Pasteur, on his deathbed, realized that it was not the infectious agents, but the terrain in which they worked, which was responsible for their ability to produce illness.

The most significant contribution to one's biological terrain would be the foods that you eat. This is one of the reasons why one should seriously consider implementing the optimal health food choice program. The program eliminates sugars and most grains that break down to sugar. It is these sugars that serve as fuel for the growth of pathogens that will cause illness.

As the above study suggests, other factors are involved. Selenium is a major player for viral infections. As the first link below shows, selenium is a potent inhibitor of viral replication and is an important part of effective natural regimens for control of hepatitis C infections.

However, one must be aware that medical science is at a very rudimentary stage of its understanding of nutrition and it interaction with human physiology. There are likely dozens, if not hundreds, of other micronutrients and factors that are responsible for decreasing the risk of infection when one eats natural unprocessed whole foods.

And if you think a flu shot is a good option for preventing the flu, you have not read Chet Day's excellent summary on that issue below.
