The manufacturers Roche and other experts say the analysis is flawed.
Well they would, wouldn't they?
They've been laughing all the way to the bank.
This report doesn't surprise me at all.

I thought it was worth bumping this topic as we're into flu jab season again.
This YouTube video is a cautionary tale from US chiropractor Dr Baker, giving several reasons why the flu jab is a complete scam. He is not entirely correct on a couple of points - he calls thimerosal an 'adjuvant' (a substance which enhances the body's immune response to an antigen) when it's actually used as an antibacterial
; also several of his points are US-specific.
But there is a lot of good information here, with some links to further information. Watch and learn.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it - Terry Pratchett.

I suspect that many of us (like I do ) dowse to ask whether a flu jab would protect us from flu. I have never had a Yes response. I understand that the jab NAY help to protect some with weak immune ststems but so can other available drugs.
