Recently by Dr. David Brownstein: Mandated Flu Vaccines: A Whole Lotta Nonsense

My last blog post dealt with the nonsense of mandating flu vaccinations for medical personnel. I showed you that the flu vaccine is not effective at preventing the flu nor does it minimize complications from the flu. The Cochrane group is an independent medical research group designed to help physicians put evidence into practice. The latest article by the Cochrane group is titled, “Are Neuraminidase inhibiters effective for preventing and treating influenza in healthy adults and children?” (1)

This article analyzes whether it is wise to use anti-viral medications to treat a patient who already has the flu.

Tamiflu is the most commonly prescribed anti-viral medication for treating the symptoms of the flu. You would think that Tamiflu must work well as it is widely prescribed by conventional doctors.
