CDC flu advice could turn out to be DEADLY

It's downright maddening.

Lives are on the line -- right now -- but instead of working to PROTECT at-risk Americans and PREVENT more deaths, health officials are working on marketing gimmicks.

They're pushing a flu shot that they've already admitted doesn't work to protect against a strain of the virus that's one of the worst in years.

Here in San Diego, we've had six times the usual number of flu cases and more than triple the number of deaths for this time of year, with the infection already claiming more than a dozen lives.

Around the country, it's the same story. More people are getting sicker earlier in the season.

This is no time to mess around.

Yet that's just what the CDC is doing.

They're using this crisis to sell flu shots, even though the protection rate this year could be as little as 10 percent, making it one of the worst flu vaccines ever.

That's going to DOOM more people to infection and illness!

My outrage doesn't end there, either.

The CDC is also urging doctors to stock up on anti-viral drugs, despite the fact that studies show the meds don't work very well AND come with terrible side effects.

That's not going to save lives -- it'll make patients more miserable than ever!

It's also guaranteed to cause hundreds -- maybe even thousands -- of unnecessary deaths, because every patient who gets a useless shot or a dangerous drug is a patient who ISN'T getting effective protection against the flu.

So, let me step what they won't... and give you a fighting chance against this nasty illness.

If you're a Health Revelations reader, you'll find all the details on my science-backed flu-fighting protocol in this month's edition, just in time for flu season.

But if you haven't had a chance to look it over just yet, let me give you a cheat sheet.

One of the best ways to beat the flu and other viruses is with a powerful natural therapy I take myself called n'acetylcysteine.

Don't worry about trying to pronounce it or even trying to spell it.

It's called NAC for short, and a study found that it can prevent flu infection in older folks even when they've been injected with the actual virus.

I recommend 600 mg twice a day on an empty stomach.

If you get sick anyway, boosting the dose to between 2,000 and 3,000 mg a day will cut the duration and severity.

And given how nasty this year's virus is, consider calling in the big guns right away if you get sick: Visit a holistic medical doctor for intravenous vitamin C to turbocharge your immune system to fight off the infection, ease the symptoms, and cut the risk of complications.
