We’ve all know someone it’s happened to.
Maybe that someone was even you.
You dutifully rolled up your sleeve and let them give you a flu shot. And then you ended up sicker than you’ve ever been before.
The mainstream insists that it’s all just a big coincidence. And maybe it is… sometimes.
But it turns out there’s another reason it can happen.
The shot is NOT as effective as they’ve led folks to believe. And the latest research reveals how one group of Americans, in particular, ISN’T getting much protection at all.
This isn’t a small group of people, either. These days, it’s practically everyone.
How the shot could be letting you down
Carrying around a few extra pounds? Well, new research finds you’re likely NOT getting the flu-blocking benefits they’ve touted.
Scientists first noticed during the 2009 pandemic that overweight and obese people were routinely coming in with flu DESPITE having the shot. And many of these folks were far sicker than everyone else who caught the bug.
The new study reveals why. It turns out that in heftier folks, the virus can get deeper into the lungs, where it can grow and spread faster.
Now, you don’t just have the flu. You have it, BAD.
And the bad news doesn’t end there either. There’s so much virus… so deep in your lungs… that it starts coming out in your breath in higher levels, too. In other words, it puts those around you at risk also.
With two-thirds of us now overweight or obese, that means the flu shot is failing the overwhelming majority of Americans. It is giving them less protection than they think they’re getting.
And that hurts in two ways:
- Directly: You’re more prone to the virus, more likely to get sick, and more likely to spread it.
- Indirectly: You THINK you’re protected, so you may not take other precautions – further increasing your risk. And increasing the risk of those you could spread it too.
Get REAL and LASTING flu protection
I won’t say this means never get the flu shot. That’s for you to decide, and you alone, with no pressure from me or anyone else one way or another.
But no matter which option you chose, shot or not, don’t stop there.
Give yourself REAL and LASTING protection that works at any age and weight with the help of natural immune-boosting, virus-crushing super-nutrients such as vitamins C and D.
And if you feel yourself getting sick, consider taking Echinacea and elderberry. The combo has been proven to be as good as flu drugs but without the awful side effects.
Like anything else, they work best when taken early. So go ahead and buy the pair now – they’re often sold as a combo in a single syrup – so you have the flu fighters on hand if you ever need them. Then be sure to take them at the very first sign of trouble.
