Here’s an actual headline making the rounds right now: CDC: Healthier life habits help stop spread of colds, flu
Gee… YA THINK?!?!?
What would we do without those geniuses at the CDC?
Maybe next week they’ll send out a bulletin reminding Americans that we should continue to breathe as much as possible.
This earth-shattering CDC bulletin is just basic common-sense hygiene: Wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and stay home when you’re sick.
They’re also telling folks to clean up germy surfaces, keep dirty hands away from your eyes, and get a decent amount of sleep.
This is hardly cutting-edge medicine. You learned most of this stuff back in kindergarten!
But believe it or not, this really IS a major breakthrough for the vaccine peddlers of mainstream medicine – because they’ve actually DISMISSED these very same common-sense steps before!
They’ve been pushing the myth that the ONLY way to protect against the flu is to get a flu shot – and they’ve gone to such ridiculous lengths that they’ve actually claimed hygiene is meaningless.
Back in 2012, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases was horrified by a survey that found many people felt hand-washing other forms of common-sense cleanliness could prevent flu.
Can’t have that, when there are vaccines to sell – so the researchers actually dismissed good hygiene as “magical thinking.”
“The idea that you are not going to spread the flu by washing your hands has never been proven,” Dr. Marc Siegel of NYU told HealthDay News at the time.
The agency called him a “flu expert.”
Maybe it’s time for this “expert” to go back to school – because a study last year found that increased hand-washing cut the risk of infections such as flu and stomach bugs by between 15 percent and 25 percent.
Looks to me like it’s time to believe in magic… because it’s certainly more effective than the flu shot, which has an absolute protection rate of less than 2 percent!
Along with some common-sense good hygiene, you can cast another “magic spell” by boosting your immune system the natural way.
Vitamin D, for example, is 800 percent more effective than the flu shot – and unlike the vaccine, it can also slash your risk of getting the common cold.
And if you DO happen to get sick anyway, don’t stress it… and don’t turn to Tamiflu.
You can beat the flu with “flower power!”
