You know about the big ones; that is, the reasons why people die. The number one cause of death in the U.S. is heart disease. This affects both men and women.
According to a report in MarketWatch.com, over 611,000 fell prey to heart disease in 2015.
Cancer ranks number two with a number just above half a million. But there are other comparisons of interest, especially when it comes to the media attention if death is caused by a predator, i.e. sharks, bears or snakes, as compared to death by vaccinations.
Looking at these statistics brings a whole new light to your decision-making.
“The number of deaths that occur annually following routine vaccination is far greater than the number of people that die from sharks, alligators, bears, snakes and spiders combined, it turns out… poison-filled injection are associated with at least 5,000 deaths annually, according to data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).
“The International Medical Council on Vaccination (IMCV) estimates that about 3,900 of these 5,000 reported deaths, or 78%, are directly caused by vaccines.
“Recognizing that VAERS data constitutes as little as 10% of actual injury and death cases, the annual death rate from vaccines swells to about 39,000, a figure leaps and bounds ahead of the handful of deaths caused by sharks and other aggressive animals every year.
“You are more than 200 times more likely to suffer mortality following a government-recommended shot, in other words, than you are dying from a bear, shark, alligator or any of the other aforementioned animals.”
What choice would you make? Camping on the Appalachian Trail, or another rugged mountain wilderness where bears, snakes and spiders reside? Swimming in an ocean front with the sharks? Or visiting the health center at Walgreens with the sign, “Get your flu shot today!”
