Surprise: Flu Vaccine Prevents Heart Attacks and Strokes; New Study on Flu Vaccine Supports Dr. Hanan Polansky’s Microcompetition Theory

An article published on October 28 on the website said that the flu shot could lower the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or other serious heart complication (1). The CBCD explains the relationship between Microcompetition Theory, the flu shot, heart attacks, and stroke.

Why would the flu shot decrease the risk of a heart attack or stroke? Dr. Hanan Polansky’s Theory of Microcompetition, which describes how fragments of foreign DNA (such as those found in viruses) cause most major diseases, answers this question.

A study published on October 23, 2013 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that the flu virus is associated with both heart attacks and strokes. “…acute influenza infection is an independent risk factor for fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events… Several observational studies support a potential association between the proximity of an acute respiratory infection and an increased risk of acute cardiac and cerebrovascular events (2).”

The researchers found that “those who had the influenza vaccine were 36 percent less likely to have a life-threatening heart attack, stroke, or heart failure within a year of being vaccinated, compared with those who received a placebo. Of those who received the placebo, 4.7 percent had a heart event compared with 2.9 percent who received a flu shot (1).”

The flu shot prevents infection with certain strains of the flu virus. No virus, no foreign DNA. No foreign DNA, no Microcompetition. No Microcompetition, no starved genes…and cells work as they should. Thus, there is a reduced risk of heart attack and/or stroke.

The CBCD explains: According to the Theory of Microcompetition with Foreign DNA, foreign DNA fragments, called N-boxes, cause most major diseases. When the foreign N-boxes belong to a virus, microcompetition between the viral DNA and the human DNA can lead to disease even when the virus is latent or the viral DNA is broken into pieces and cannot express proteins.

The CBCD is happy to see a new study from JAMA that is consistent with the Microcompetition with Foreign DNA Theory proposed by Dr. Hanan Polansky (3).

The CBCD is a research center recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. The mission of the CBCD is to advance the research on the biology of chronic diseases, and to accelerate the discovery of treatments.

The CBCD published the “Purple” book by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky’s highly acclaimed scientific theory on the relationship between foreign DNA and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky’s book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.
