Donald Miller MD, a cardiac surgeon and professor of surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, recommends that people take vitamin D INSTEAD of taking the flu vaccine. Miller says that seventy percent (70%) of medical doctors chose not to take the vaccine. Influenza is a sign of immune system dysfunction-not a vaccine deficiency- and vitamin D helps support the body in warding off viruses. Some health officials have overstated the risk of flu stating that 36,000 people will die of the virus each year. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that only 1,138 deaths each year that are actually attributed to the influenze virus and perhaps those individuals had low levels of vitamin D as most flu occurs during the winter months. Evidence is also lacking that children benefit from these vaccines and in fact most act simply as a placebo. There is also the risk of harm from vaccine additives such as the preservative thymersol, which is a mercury based additive.
