Flu vaccine causing infant seizures; FDA to investigate
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) The Sanofi-Aventis flu vaccine known as "Fluzone" is causing febrile seizures
in children, the FDA revealed yesterday. According to the FDA, 42 cases of seizures have been reported in children receiving the Fluzone vaccine. Most of the children suffering seizures are under the age of two.
The FDA went out of its way to claim that even though these children suffered seizures, they're all fine now. "All children recovered and no lasting effects have been seen," the FDA said. Can you imagine them making such a statement about an herb
that was found to cause seizures
? This is a case where the FDA
has clearly put itself in the position of defending the safety of the vaccine
and downplaying the risk that it sends children
Nearly all the reported seizures occurred within 24 hours after the children received the Fluzone vaccine. This, according to vaccine apologists, is mere "coincidence."
It is well established that only 1% - 10% of vaccine side effects
are ever reported to the FDA
. This means that potentially thousands of children
have suffered seizures due to this flu vaccine
Not surprisingly, the maker of the vaccine claims there's no proof that the vaccine caused any seizures at all. "At this point no correlation between influenza vaccine and febrile seizures has been established," said Sanofi-Aventis
. "Adverse events after vaccination may be causally related to vaccine or may be coincidental."
Both the drug maker and the FDA take the position that "vaccines
are safe until proven dangerous." This is the opposite of what commonsense precaution would require: That vaccines should be proven safe before being injected into the bodies of children
And yet, as NaturalNews
has reported many times, flu
vaccines are never tested in randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled studies because the flu
industry is unwilling to subject vaccines to actual scientific scrutiny. All flu vaccines are approved by the FDA without adequate safety testing
, and then side effects (seizures, etc.) are "monitored" by the FDA to see if anything goes wrong. As the side effects reports begin to pour in, the FDA simply downplays those reports and claims no "causal link has been established."
This is how America's children are turned into medical experiments by the vaccine industry.
