Why Won't Healthcare Workers Take The Swine Flu Vaccine?

Can vaccinations actually fuel pandemics? According to a study released August 26, 2009 by the British Medical Journal, more than half of Hong Kong's healthcare workers surveyed said they would refuse the H1N1 shot, which is not yet available, because they are afraid of side effects and doubt how safe and effective it will be.

More importantly, the study suggested the trend would be repeated worldwide.

"The truth is that vaccines aren't effective, generally carry dangerous side effects, and in many cases actually fuel the spread of pandemics," said Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a Harvard University trained medical researcher who also holds a Master's Degree in Public Health. "The fact is that most healthcare workers know this, and they don't trust that any swine flu vaccine will do anything but cause more problems and potential harm to the patients they care for."

In Dr. Horowitz's view, vaccines do more harm than good, and are little more than a way for the pharmaceutical companies to profit from epidemics and side effects.

"In April, 2009, the swine flu scare placed the world at high alert thanks to gads of suspicious publicity," Dr. Horowitz said. "Anglo-American officials and Reuters News Service first claimed this was a rapidly spreading combination of the world's scariest flu's swine, avian and Spanish flu viruses. They were all said to be rolled up in this never-before-seen Mexican pathogen."

The scare, however, seemed to have less substance than volume, as the thousands of U.S. deaths that were predicted never happened, Dr. Horowitz added. 

"The H1N1 swine flu shot is more of a drug than a vaccine given the list of toxic chemical ingredients causing side effects including Guillain-Barre syndrome, a deadly paralyzing disorder widespread after the 1976 swine flu vaccination campaign." Dr. Horowitz continued.

"Vaccines are an aberration, and the medical profession and pharmaceutical companies have been playing fast and loose with explaining how vaccines immunize people," he said. "Classic immunology draws an important distinction between the terms 'immunize' and 'vaccinate.' By casually substituting 'immunization' for 'vaccination,' the pharmaceutical machine mystifies the masses. More accurately, vaccinations cause hyper-sensitizations.

Simply put white blood cell body guards begin to attack far more than desired. Myriad auto-immune diseases and childhood injuries result from vaccinations. However, pseudo-scientists and ignorant health officials confuse this matter with the 'immunization' misnomer. Similarly, they repeat the myth that vaccines, not improvements in hygiene and nutrition, caused the great reduction, or alleged elimination, of deadly human diseases." 

Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz is an internationally known authority in the overlapping fields of public health, behavioral science, emerging diseases, and natural healing. He is also a Harvard University trained medical researcher and expert in public health.

Dr. Horowitz researched the history and effectiveness of vaccines following his mother's death from the 1976 swine flu vaccine. He believes when vaccine risks are considered, doctors and parents can make more informed decisions. He has authored sixteen books including the bestseller Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, and the co-founder of Healthy World Organization
