Desiree Jennings, who had been married just 2 years and was training to be an NFL cheerleader and run in a half marathon now struggles to walk, eat, and even speak after a reaction to the seasonal flu vaccine. Desiree received her flu shot in August, and 10 days afterward developed a neurological disorder called Dystonia. This was in reaction to the neurotoxin, mercury, that is very prevalent in the vaccine. Her muscles jerk and contract when she tries to walk forward, and even prevents her from speaking normally. However, she can walk backwards or run just fine, and even speaks normally when running. Truly a shame, and all because of the dangerous ingredients and the fewer regulations that manufacturers must go through.
