Why Flu Shots Are Bad For Your Brain

Each year around this time, there is intense pressure from government, doctors, and local pharmacies encouraging people to get their annual flu shots – especially the very young and old – and this year is no exception.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, renowned neurosurgeon and editor of the Blaylock Wellness Report has some very interesting things to say about these flu shots:

“I’ve never seen anything like it. The incidence of flu across the United States is extremely low – there are virtually no outbreaks – and not a single child has died. Yet, the flu vaccine is being pushed as if it’s the greatest health advance ever discovered.”

Dr. Blaylock then goes on to say “the vaccine is worthless, and the government knows it.” He shares the three reasons the government tells the elderly they should get the flu shots: “secondary pneumonia, hospitalization, and death.” Yet a study by the Cochrane group studied hundreds of thousands of people and found it offered zero protection for those three things.

Dr. Blaylock then turns his attention to the very young:

“The government says that every baby over the age of six months should have a vaccine, and they know it contains a dose of mercury that is toxic to the brain. They also know the studies have shown that the flu vaccine has zero – zero – effectiveness in children.”

“Here’s the bottom line: The vast number of people who get the flu vaccine aren’t going to get any benefit, but they get all of the risks and complications.”

Few people realize that flu vaccines contain mercury, a potent toxin that accumulates in the brain as well as in other organs. Dr. Blayock says mercury is “incorporated into the brain for a lifetime.” And “after five or 10 years of flu shots, enough mercury accumulates in the brain that every single study agrees its neurotoxic.”

“Mercury is extremely toxic to the brain even in very small concentrations . . . . The changes seen in the brain associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are all easily produced by mercury in these doses.”

Dr. Blaylock notes that if a senior citizen receives an annual flu shot for five consecutive years, they increase their potential for Alzheimer’s by 1,000 percent.

Mercury is also a strong immune depressant. Just one flu shot suppresses the immune system’s ability to protect the individual who received the shot for several weeks. Dr. Blaylock says that a person receiving the flu shot “makes people highly susceptible to catching the flu”, rather than protecting them from the flu.

EDITOR’S NOTE – Dr. Blaylock says that flu isn’t a big risk, especially this year. But whether a mild or severe outbreak is expected, a flu shot is NOT the best way to protect one’s self. The best way is through a change in diet and lifestyle which rebuilds the immune system, a diet similar to The Hallelujah Diet.

This editor certainly found this to be true! Before my diet change 36 years ago, most every year I came down with the flu. Since adopting a primarily raw, 100% plant-based diet, and plenty of vegetable juices, I haven’t come down with the flu even once. In fact, I haven’t experienced a cold in the 36-years since making the diet change, either.

Furthermore, I have never received a flu shot, nor would I ever allow flu vaccine to be injected to my body. Why? Because I have done the research and know the potential dangers risks associated with a flu shot.

Instead, I have strengthened my immune system through a healthy diet and lifestyle. I would rather utilize the protection God build into my body than rely on a man-made poison. God’s ways are far above man’s ways as the Bible so clearly tells us:

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile (does harm to) the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.” (I Corinthians 3:16-19)


  1. Any recommendation for those of us who work in healthcare and can be terminated if we do not take the flu shot?

    • A few things we can do to help the body detoxify from vaccines are:

      * Warm soaks in a bath of 1 cup of sea salt and ¼ cup baking soda
      * Supplementing with Bio-Curcumin
      * Supplemental use of magnesium
      * Consuming an abundance of pure water and vegetable juices.

      i am an RN who was told it was mandatory to get the flu vaccine each year. There was a medical exclusion to be filled out by a MD if applicable. I repli

      ed with a letter citing allergy to egg, religious exemption request and the heightened risk for alzheimers since my age is 56. I described my diet and the fact that I don’t even have a MD. I agreed to wear a mask if needed during flu season. My exclusion was granted by employee health. Good luck. I had already made up my mind that I would have to be fired after 26 years if I had to choose.

      stay away from aluminum in products or foods such as deodorants and baking powders. consider chelation therapy if diagnosed along with recovery/strict raw diet.

  3. Thank you for this information. I respect your commitment to health in your body and agree that we should feed our bodies the healthiest foods affordable and available, but I don’t agree with your use of 1 Corinthians 3:16-19 to validate your position. In Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians he is addressing matters of moral conduct. The main one being sexual immorality. Please understand that I’m not trying to take away from the importance of taking care of our physical heath. I agree with that entirely. The reason for my feedback is to address the importance of using Scripture correctly. Too many believers ignorantly misuse scripture to take a stand on a belief or way of life. Let’s understand God’s word in the context in which it is written so that we can clearly know what God wants from us and we can faithfully teach what God wants us to do for others. The following is the crux of what Paul is teaching in 1 Corinthians. But don’t just read it. Read the entire letter Paul wrote to the Corithians.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-20

    “9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    Sexual Immorality

    12 “Everything is permissible for me”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food”—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b] 17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

    18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

    Finally and once again I agree with you that we all, believers and non-believers alike, must take responsibility for our own health. But if we are going to use Scripture to validate our case on something let’s use Scripture in it’s context.

    God Bless

    Could it be that we don’t have flu outbreaks because so many people get flu shots?
