Two Types of People Who Should Never Get the Flu Shot

(Joseph Mercola, D.O., Ph.D) Flu season is creeping up on us again and there are widespread calls to get your annual flu shot, despite the fact that, year after year, this strategy turns out to have an abysmal rate of effectiveness across the board. One group that consistently turns out to draw the short end of the stick when it comes to influenza vaccine failures is the elderly.

Sunscreen Fraud: Consumer Reports’ Recommends Sunscreens That Seep Poison Into Your Bloodstream

(Dr. Joe Mercola) While there are instances where sunscreen may be prudent, these products are widely overused and contribute to widespread vitamin D deficiency.

Farmed Salmon — Contaminated with Toxic Flame Retardants

(Dr. Mercola) Fish are an important part of the ecosystem and the human diet. Unfortunately, overfishing has depleted many fish stocks, and the proposed solution — fish farming — is creating far more problems than it solves. Not only are fish farms polluting the aquatic environment and spreading disease to wild fish, farmed fish are also an inferior food source, in part by providing fewer healthy nutrients; and in part by containing more toxins, which readily accumulate in fat.

Sugar Coated – How the Sugar Industry Managed to Dupe the World for Decades

(Dr. Mercola) Thousands of studies spanning many decades show excess sugar damages your health,1 yet the sugar industry successfully buried the evidence and misdirected the public with manipulated science. According to the sugar industry, sugar is a harmless source of energy and may even be an important part of a healthy “balanced” diet.
