The Flu Ups Your Risk of This Disease by 12%

Dear Reader, 

The pressure is on!  

Everywhere from your local pharmacy to doctor, they’re all urging you to get the flu vaccine.  

Now, I’m all for mainstream medicine that works. 

But the flu vaccine has a very spotty record (on GOOD years it is 50 percent effective)!  

However, the flu is nothing to sneeze at — it can be a very serious disease. And new study shows that a complication from it could lead to many problems later on…  

I’m talking about heart disease. 

A new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pulled data from more than 80,000 adults who are hospitalized with flu from 2010 to 2018. The study was published in the Annuals of Internal Medicine. 

The study team found that serious heart disease (including heart attack) occurs in almost 12 percent of people with the flu.   

The most common heart event was heart failure. The researchers even found that 5 percent of people with flu (who go to the hospital) also have trouble with their heart.   

If this is sounding eerily familiar, it’s because COVID-19 also tends to cause problems with hearts in those who are not entirely healthy.  

Take this as a sign that you should try to get yourself as healthy as possible to fight any infection that might be headed your way.  

Here is a good place to start taking better care of your heart.  

Dr. Scott’s Good Heart Health Program:  

  • Exercise: Exercise not only reduces inflammation but is great for the heart (and the brain). You don’t have to be too crazy, just get out and move your body around just a little every day.  
  • Eat Colorful Foods: This means getting enough vegetables in your diet. If you can’t stand veggies, you can “cheat” by getting your veggies and other superfoods in a powered form. I take one every day by mixing it into yogurt and some berries.  
  • Avoid Vegetable Oils: Vegetable oils, especially trans fatty acids, are like setting off tiny bombs in your blood stream which increase inflammation.   
  • Fish Oil: One of the most powerful anti-inflammatories is fish oil. It works inside your body to keep inflammatory proteins low.  
  • Curcumin: This extract from turmeric is great at helping the body modulate inflammation. Unless you get a ton of this in your food, you should think about supplementing.  

P.S. Like I said, I’m for any mainstream treatment – that works. Which is why you won’t find me rushing out to support the flu shot anytime soon. In fact, even the mainstream has ADMITTED the ugly truth about the flu shot. Read about it here.
