Tetanus Shot and Why you Shouldn’t get it

My argument is a simple one; an argument that is constructed of facts. Please keep in mind as the CDC clearly indicates, I must disclaim that the information used and that I am about to share, is strictly for health reporting and/or analysis only and in no way have I or will I identity or try to identify participants listed in the data. Now that that’s out of the way, let us get started.

Tetanus is an anaerobic bacteria which simply means that it cannot survive in oxygenated environments. So if you had a wound, an opened wound that was bleeding, you wouldn’t have to worry about tetanus. Rust or “rusty,” has nothing to do with tetanus; with that being said, if you were to get cut on something metal whether it was rusty or not, it doesn’t automatically mean tetanus bacteria is on the metal nor is it present. Tetanus is usually found in a mix of manure and/or dirt. It is very unlikely that you will find tetanus on a clean knife, razor, or even a nail. Even if there was a deep puncture wound that didn’t bleed, caused by an object that knowingly had tetanus bacteria on it,  you literally can NOT vaccinate against a bacteria infection AFTER the exposure to the tetanus bacteria. It would take weeks for your body to produce enough antibodies to begin to build somewhat of an immunity. The vaccine theory makes no sense considering a vaccine would NOT be an instant tetanus killer. It takes two weeks for the body to peak its antibodies in response to something like this, and weeks more to continue to build antibodies and memory B cells. If we truly wanted to take tetanus as an honest concern, and somehow pretend that tetanus exposure is as dangerous as the CDC and WHO hypes it up to be, then as previously explained the ONLY thing that would help aside from allowing the wound itself to bleed (remember how tetanus can’t survive in oxygen), and cleaning the wound with soap and water, we could then apply hydrogen peroxide, colloidal silver, or some other form of oxygenated healing therapy. But if none of what I just said was plausible, then the concern would be so grand that it would demand an anti-toxin NOT a vaccine. There is no one true “tetanus vaccine” on the market. Emergency room protocol would consist of the Tetanus Immune Globulin or the TiG Shot, antibiotics, and of course a DTaP or a TD vaccination. Everything is wrong in that situation except for the antibiotics and depending on the doctor, an anticonvulsant for the muscle spasms that the tetanus produces as it works on your CNS. The issue with the TiG shot is the fact that it only works on localized tetanus and NOT generalized tetanus otherwise at first glance an anti-toxin doesn’t seem so bad. Generalized tetanus results from the bacteria reaching and being disbursed throughout one’s central nervous system. Localized tetanus consists of only the wound and surrounding area. Also, the TiG is considered an anti-toxin, which at first glance seems okay considering that it does grant passive immunity short-term thus resulting in a reduction of symptoms… so in theory it should be okay right? I cannot fully draw a conclusion as the name brand “BayTet” does not provide an ingredient list of what goes into the TiG shot (if you get your hands on it, contact me). Considering that it takes weeks for the body to build antibodies and memory cells to such bacteria, why would anything be good to inject via the muscle? Here are some statistics straight from the horse’s mouth. According to the CDC, 660,515.5 times more people per year die from Tetanus vaccines then from tetanus toxiod poisoning. So let me put it to you this way; you are 660,515.15 times more likely to die from the vaccine than you are tetanus. According to the CDC, out of the 233 people from 2001 to 2008 who contracted the tetanus bacteria only 26 of those people actually died from the bacteria. That averages four deaths from tetanus per year; with that being said, the average deaths per year from the vaccine was 2,642,062.7!  This isn’t hard to figure out in regards to what is more dangerous. So I am easily able to conclude that it is safer to contract tetanus then it is to be vaccinated. I’ve inserted screenshots of the CDC’s results as shown below.
