No flu vaccine had significant effect in reducing risk of complications of influenza among healthy adults; widespread manipulation of data; exposure to mercury. No evidence of vaccine efficacy. Widespread manipulation of the conclusions in vaccine manufacturer-funded studies. In children under the age of two, the effectiveness of the vaccine was similar to placebo.

Kaiser Health Foundation study: Medicare enrollees in higher-spending regions receive more care than those in lower-spending regions but do not have better health outcomes or satisfaction with care. (Dr. Fuhrman notes: "a third of medical spending is devoted to services that don't improve health or the quality of care, and may make things worse")

Fuhrman: viral infections can cause serious, even fatal disease that don't occur when deficiency is not present. Multiple micronutrients including lutein, lycopene, folate, bioflavonoids, riboflavin, zinc, selenium, and other micronutrients have immune modulating function.

Beck MA. Antioxidants and viral infections: host immune response and viral pathogenicity. J Am Coll Nutr. 2001;20(5 Suppl):384S-388S; discussion 396S-397S. Abstract

Not only is the host affected by the nutritional deficiency, but the invading pathogen is as well. The level of nutrition of the host can directly influence the genetic makeup of the virus, altering its virulence.

Micronutrient deficiencies are prevalent in many HIV-infected populations, and numerous studies have reported that these deficiencies impair immune responses, weaken epithelial integrity, and are associated with accelerated HIV disease progression. A nutritionally competent immune system prevents viral genetic mutations that would allow the virus to evade the host's defenses. Inadequate nutritional status may increase the risk of vertical HIV transmission by influencing maternal and child factors for transmission.

Separate comments from Dr. Fuhrman: Transmission of AIDS virus reduced, and even made improbable when the host's nutrition is excellent. We can enable our body to have control over viral replication, and to prohibit the virus from transforming to evade capture

Angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) treat high blood pressure. Meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials found that ARBs significantly increased (8%) risk of new diagnosis of any cancer, and 25% increased risk of lung cancer. Also, increased rates of sudden cardiac death, death from heart attack and death from stroke.
