The Swine Flu Scam-Demic

 

I have discussed this topic several times in the past year but due to the falsehoods being spread daily in the media and by our own government the topic requires further review.

 

 

Not sure who this is but clearly they have no fear of Swine Flu! 

If you were to believe the media and follow the lead of our elected officials you might think the sky is falling and we are on the verge of a new plague.

Please do not buy into that propaganda.  The information that we are collectively receiving from the mainstream media in regards to our health is abysmal at best.

The only thing that we are truly at risk for (and I say this only half kidding) is adrenal failure from stress related to the fear mongering that is being perpetuated with each misleading news cast.

Here are some H1N1 Bullet Points:

How Effective is this Vaccine

Long story short and from the manufacturers own literature on pgs 11-12 it states that it will provide (at best) protection against the specific H1N1 strain in 1 out of every 4 people inoculated. So assuming the virus has not mutated and you don't have an adverse reaction to the ingredients you will have a 1in 4 chance of it stopping you from getting sick. You see for a vaccine to be deemed effective you must have a certain number of antibodies develop that target the particular virus.  This process is called "seroconversion"

In regards to seroconversion you will find the following paragraph in flu vaccine inserts.

"Specific levels of HI antibody titers post-vaccination with inactivated influenza virus vaccine have not been correlated with protection from influenza virus. In some human studies, antibody titers of 1:40 or greater have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects."

What this means is that the vaccine only works in about half, or possibly less, of those individuals who attain the stated level of seroconversion after vaccination. For adequate seroconversion the FDA targets an antibody titer of 1:40.

In other words if a vaccine was 100 percent effective at reaching this level of seroconversion, up to 50 percent of the recipients of the vaccine would be protected from the infection.

Having said that we must also mention that no vaccine is 100 percent effective at achieving seroconversion. 

As stated above the H1N1 vaccine will provide the following seroconversion:

  • 48.7 percent of people aged 18-65
  • 34 percent for seniors, 65 and older

Therefore, at best, this vaccine works properly in one out of every four people! (49 percent of 50 percent).

With poor odds like this we must now answer the next question:

What is the Risk of the Vaccine?

From my perspective you can really lump this question into two categories:

1. Mercury Toxicity

2. Adjuvants and Non-Mercury Preservatives

 

Let’s start with the mercury issue because 85% of the injectable flu vaccines will contain between 12 to 25 mcg of mercury.  This happens to be between 3 to 250 times the EPA allowable for a food depending on if the subject is an adult, a child, or an unborn fetus. This would never be allowed for any food yet we are supposed to accept it as safe to mainline into our body.  Oh, and for kids 10 and under they need 2 injections so they get somewhere between 6 to potentially 500 times the EPA allowable for any food substance depending on their body weight.
Now to be fair I do need to state that the kind of mercury tracked in food is metyl-mercury and the kind of mercury in a vaccine is ethyl-mercury.  Advocates for use of mercury in vaccines would have you believe this makes a difference implying that your body can somehow metabolize the ethyl form but not the methyl form. However, from the research I have included in the body of this article you will see this is completely false.
Use of a second innocculation for children under 10 will potentially be eliminated by adding any one of the adjuvants (discussed later in this article)  that currently are stockpiled by our government but not approved for use in the USA yet.  This will only make matters worse in terms of long term health affects.
It is so sad that this topic has been steamrolled and belittled by those in power who could make a positive difference but elect not to for financial gain.  When you have past Directors of the NIH making statements about people permanently damaged due to mercury in vaccinations like the following statement you really need to take pause and ask why the madness is allowed to continue. 
 
"I think that the government or certain public officials in the government have been too quick to dismiss the concerns of these families without studying the population that got sick. I think public health officials have been too quick to dismiss the hypothesis as irrational without sufficient studies of causation."
- Dr. Bernadine Healy, former Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), largest U.S. federal agency responsible for conducting and supporting medical research. Dr. Healy has no known conflicts of interest in the vaccine-autism debate.
 

For the amount of research available on this topic there should not even be a debate.  I will post some key articles below and here is one of my favorites on the topic from Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD.  This is really a great article so take the time necessary to read this one on Mercury and Autism .  Once you click on that link you will have to click on "Articles" then on "Vaccines, Neurodevelopment...This is a great article that will help the reader to see that despite statements to the contrary THERE IS A CAUSAL LINK between increased Mercury / Aluminum in vaccine exposure and Neurological disorders like Autism.

But again the wheels of commerce are well greased and do an incredible job at overlooking big pink elephants in the middle of the room like the overwhelming number of Autism cases that have resulted from our insane vaccination schedule.

You see, the USA has a group called the AICP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) which decided to increase our vaccine schedule from 10 vaccinations for children in 1983 to 36 vaccinations today.  During this same period of time Autism has increased from 1:10,000 to 1:150 which is a 60 times or 6000% increase.

No other nation on the planet approaches this number of vaccinations and no other country has the same incidence of Autistic disorders of the USA either.

Any other industry would be hard pressed to exist with adverse statistics like that looming over their head.  This industry not only survives but thrives due to who is on the payroll and the dollars that are on the table.

In fact the companies that have received the government contracts for this year’s flu and H1N1 vaccines have enjoyed a blockbuster year with profits that are virtually unheard of in our economy today. 

So you might ask what’s so bad about mercury?  Let me share over 20 solid and current studies that answer that question.  Each article is available by clicking on its title.
 

The following list was compiled by Dr. Joe Mercola who encourages sharing the information.  So rather than reproducing this wheel I have gratefully used the following for our collective edification.

Studies CONFIRMING Thimerosal (mercury preservative) as a Health Hazard

You deserve to know the facts, so here’s a compilation of recent studies and research clearly showing that thimerosal DOES HAVE a very real, detrimental impact on health, and that mercury toxicity is a reality in those suffering from the type of neurological damage seen in autistic children.
 


Most of these are from GenerationRescue.org and Fourteenstudies.org’s websites, which are great resources as they provide copies of the full studies so you can review all the evidence for yourself:

1.    Environmental Health Perspectives, August, 2005

Fourteenstudies.org states: “This study demonstrates clearly and unequivocally that ethyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in vaccines, not only ends up in your brain, but leaves double the amount of inorganic mercury as methyl mercury, the kind of mercury found in fish.

This work is groundbreaking because little is known about ethyl mercury, and many health authorities have asserted that the mercury found in vaccines is the "safe kind."

This study also delivers a strong rebuke of the Institute of Medicine's recommendation in 2004 to no longer pursue the mercury-autism connection. Excerpt:

"A recently published IOM review (IOM 2004) appears to have abandoned the earlier recommendation [of studying mercury and autism] as well as back away from the American Academy of Pediatrics goal [of removing mercury from vaccines].

This approach is difficult to understand, given our current limited knowledge of the toxic kinetics and developmental neurotoxicity of thimerosal, a compound that has been (and will continue to be) injected in millions of newborns and infants."

2.    Cell Biology and Toxicology April 9, 2009 [Epub Ahead of Print]

Exerpt: “In conclusion, MT-1 and MT-3 mRNAs but not MT-2 mRNA are easily expressed in the cerebellum rather than in the cerebrum by the injection of low-dose thimerosal. It is thought that the cerebellum is a sensitive organ against thimerosal.

As a result of the present findings, in combination with the brain pathology observed in patients diagnosed with autism, the present study helps to support the possible biological plausibility for how low-dose exposure to mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines may be associated with autism.

3.    Annals of Epidemiology September 2009: 19(9);659

Male infants who received thimerosal-containing hepatitis-B vaccinations had a three-fold risk of developing autism.

4.    Neurotoxicology October 1, 2009

The above findings are confirmed in this study wherein infant primates injected with just ONE dose of thimerosal-containing hepatitis B vaccine manifested significant developmental delays.

5.    Brain Research September 9, 2009 [Epub Ahead of Print]

Study concluded that injecting thimerosal into suckling infant rats, and adult rats, impairs sensitivity to pain, apparently due to activation the endogenous opioid system.

6.    Toxicology & Environmental Chemistry September-October 2008: 90(5);997-1008

Male infants who received thimerosal-containing hepatitis-B vaccinations were nine times as likely to be receiving special education services

7.    Generation Rescue Survey of 9,000 boys, aged 4-17, in California and Oregon, found that vaccinated boys had a 155 percent greater chance of having a neurological disorder than unvaccinated boys. Vaccinated boys were 224 percent more likely to have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and 61 percent more likely to have autism.

For boys in the 11-17 age bracket, the results were even more pronounced. Vaccinated boys were 158 percent more likely to have a neurological disorder, 317 percent more likely to have ADHD, and 112 percent more likely to have autism.

8.    Report to the Legislature on the Principle Findings from The Epidemiology of Autism in California: A Comprehensive Pilot Study by the MIND Institute, October 2002, concluded that the rise in autism cannot be explained by better diagnosis and expanded diagnostic criteria, but rather is a real event, likely propelled by “environmental exposures to substances such as mercury; viral exposures; autoimmune disorders; and childhood vaccinations."

9.    Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology 2006: 214; 99-108

This French study used a new, sophisticated measurement for environmental toxicity by assessing porphyrin levels in autistic children. It provides clear and unequivocal evidence that children with autism spectrum disorders are significantly more toxic than their neurotypical peers.

10. Journal of American Physicians and Surgeon, 2003

Exerpt: "The data from this study, along with emerging epidemiological data showing a link between increasing mercury doses from childhood vaccines and childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, increases the likelihood that mercury is one of the main factors leading to the large increase in the rate of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. It is hoped that removing thimerosal from all childhood vaccines will contribute to a decline in the numbers of new cases of autistic spectrum disorders."

11. Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health 2007: 70; 837-851

This study reviewed the case histories and medical profiles of nine autistic children and concluded that eight of the nine children were mercury toxic and this toxicity manifested itself in a manner consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

12. Neuropediatrics, August 2006

Exerpt: "There was significant difference in blood mercury levels between cases and controls, which persists after adjustment for age, gender and parental occupational status. The geometric mean blood mercury level was also significantly higher in children with inattentive and combined subtypes of ADHD. CONCLUSION: High blood mercury level was associated with ADHD. Whether the relationship is causal requires further studies."

13. International Journal of Toxicology 2003: 22; 277-285

Fourteenstudies.org states: “This recent study demonstrates that the levels of mercury in the birth hair of autistic children were significantly lower than their control peers. While this may at first appear contradictory, it highlights one of the critical insights to understanding mercury poisoning and autistic children: many autistic children are non-excretors of mercury. This means their capacity to excrete mercury is significantly lower than their neurotypical peers and contributes to their condition.”

14. Journal of Pediatrics, May 2000: 136; 679-681

This study measured mercury levels in infants before and after the administration of a Hepatitis B vaccine containing thimerosal and found that a "comparison of pre and post-vaccination mercury levels showed a significant increase in both preterm and term infants after vaccination."

15. Neurotoxicology January 2005: 26; 1-8

Study demonstrates that thimerosal lowers or inhibits your body's ability to produce glutathione, an antioxidant and your body's primary cellular-level defense against mercury.

Excerpt: "Thimerosal-induced cytotoxicity was associated with depletion of intracellular Glutathione in both cell lines...The potential effect of Glutathione or N-acetylcysteine against mercury toxicity warrants further research as possible adjunct therapy to individuals still receiving Thimerosal-containing vaccines."

16. Environmental Health Perspectives, July 2006

Study demonstrates that very low-levels of Thimerosal can contribute to immune system disregulation.

17. Molecular Psychiatry July 2004; 1-13

Study demonstrates how thimerosal inhibits methylation, a central driver of cellular communication and development.

Exerpt: "The potent inhibition of this pathway [methylation] by ethanol, lead, mercury, aluminum, and thimerosal suggests it may be an important target of neurodevelopmental toxins."

18. Molecular Psychiatry September 2004; 1-13

Fouteenstudies.org states: “This work by Columbia University Doctors explores whether genes are important in determining if mercury exposures akin to those in childhood immunizations can disrupt brain development and function.

It is the first known scientific study done specifically on ethlymercury administered in a way similar to the vaccine schedule. Dr. Hornig discussed the study before Congress in September 2004.”

Excerpt: "The premise of our research is that if mercury in vaccines creates risk for neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, genetic differences are likely to contribute to that risk. Earlier studies, however, did not use the form of mercury present in vaccines, known as thimerosal, and did not consider whether intramuscular, repetitive administration during early postnatal development, when the brain and immune systems are still maturing, might intensify toxicity.

Our predictions were confirmed. Using thimerosal dosages and timing that approximated the childhood immunization schedule, our model of postnatal thimerosal neurotoxicity demonstrated that the genes in mice that predict mercury-related immunotoxicity also predicted nuerodevelopmental damage. Features reminiscent of those observed in autism occurred in the mice of the genetically sensitive strain."

19. Toxicological Sciences 2003: 74

Study demonstrates the potent toxicity of thimerosal on brain cells.

20. Autoimmunity Reviews June 2005: 4(5):270-275

Study demonstrates the clear link between ethylmercury [from thimerosal] and autoimmune responses.

21. Congressional Record - Extensions of Remarks by Congressman Dan Burton (R-IN), Committee on Government Reform, May 21, 2003

Fouteenstudies.org states: “This extensive report was prepared by the staff of the Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness and was the result of a three-year investigation. The Committee on Government Reform, chaired by Congressman Dan Burton, initiated the investigation and compiled the testimony of hundreds of researchers and physicians, as well as representatives from the FDA and CDC, who presented to the committee.”

Excerpt: "Mercury is hazardous to humans. Its use in medicinal products is undesirable, unnecessary and should be minimized or eliminated entirely. Manufacturers of vaccines and thimerosal, (an ethlymercury compound used in vaccines), have never conducted adequate testing on the safety of thimerosal. The FDA has never required manufacturers to conduct adequate safety testing on thimerosal and ethlymercury compounds...

Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to this known neurotoxin. Our public health agencies' failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self-protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry."

22.  Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons 2006; 11(1); 8-13


Upon analysis of the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), researchers reported significantly increased odds ratios for autism, speech disorders, mental retardation and thinking abnormalities following vaccination with thimerosal-containing vaccines (DTP and Hib), compared to children who received a vaccine containing half the amount of thimerosal (DTPH).

The American Academy of Pediatrics decided that this study was flawed because it relied on VAERS data, which as a “passive surveillance system” is no intended to be used for proving hypotheses. 

Dr. Mercola finishes this list by stating "I could go on, but by now I’m sure you get the picture.

To say that there is no evidence of link between thimerosal and biological damage is not a simple error or omission. It is an absolute lie, and you deserve better from your health officials."
 

 

I add my support to these comments and encourage everyone to research these findings for themselves. Knowledge is power and no reasonable person can read these studies and not come to the conclusion that we have accepted a lie as the truth and subsequently continue to poison ourselves and play Russian Roulette with our children and ourselves each time we expose them to vaccine related toxins.

 

That was a ton of information so rather than produce an equally long list of articles for the Adjuvants and Non-Mercury Preservatives let me list them and state for the record that most all of them carry inherent risks some of which (particularly aluminum) are worse than what was just listed for mercury.

In addition to Thimerosal (mercury) several types of commonly used adjuvants, additives and preservatives are found in the flu vaccines including the following, this is only a partial list:

  • Aluminium hydroxide
  • Aluminium phosphate
  • Calcium phosphate
  • Live, attenuated, or inactivated (killed) virus
  • Monosodium Glutamate, MSG is a known neurotoxin and excitotoxin.
  • Egg Proteins
  • Sucrose (table sugar)
  • Dibasic potassium phosphate
  • Monobasic potassium phosphate
  • Gentamicin Sulfate (antibiotic)
  • Triton X 100  (a toxic detergent)
  • Formaldehyde  (known carcinogen)
  • Beta-Propriolactone (a disinfectant)

Intranasal vaccines do not contain thimerosal (mercury).

One adjuvant that I mentioned several months ago that has been implicated in disorders such as Gulf War Syndrome is called Squalene.  It is an oil-based emulsion that was anticipated to be used in H1N1 vaccines but after much debate was amazingly not licensed by the FDA for use in the U.S. However, squalene is an adjuvant that is being used in vaccines throughout Europe. Our government has purchased and is storing large quantities of this adjuvant for future use and I suspect they will find reason to make use of it in the near future if they can create enough mass hysteria.

It's important to realize when looking at the list of adjuvants and preservatives that aluminum is also a neurotoxin and is showing the potential to be MORE toxic than mercury.

 

Due to public outcry sometime around 2003 the industry began to remove mercury from many vaccines (90% of flu vaccine still has it). This removal left the pretense that vaccines were now safe. Health agencies failed to inform the public of the many other toxic additives left in vaccines, and aluminum is one of them.

Unlike Mercury, Aluminum by in large has flown under the media radar and most people don’t even know it’s a health risk. Interestingly individuals on vaccine advisory boards are aware of this and have made statements to that fact such as:

“Aluminum is not perceived, I believe, by the public as a dangerous metal. Therefore, we are in a much more comfortable wicket in terms of defending its presence in vaccines,” said Dr. John Clements, WHO vaccine advisor.


Interesting that he said "aluminum is not perceived by the public as a dangerous metal …” he couldn’t claim aluminum is safe, to do so would be a lie.


The risk from using these adjuvants is really in the dramatic and lengthy immune response they generate.  This is by design since creating a strong response raises the likelihood of greater seroconversion but when such a response is turned on without the ability to effectively turn it off we put ourselves at risk for neurological damage.  On this topic Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D., a board-certified neurosurgeon and author states:

“Studies have shown that these adjuvants, from a single vaccine, can cause immune over activation for as long as two years. This means that the brain microglia remain active as well, continuously pouring out destructive chemicals.

 

In fact, one study found that a single injection of an immune activating substance could cause brain immune over activation for over a year. This is very destructive.”

  

 

What is the Risk of not getting the H1N1 Vaccine?

 

Well, as you can read below statistically you have a 99.99% chance of not getting the H1N1 and for the less than 1% who do acquire the infection you have much better odds of being done with it in 3-5 days than ending up in the hospital.  You have far better odds of winning the lottery than ending up in the hospital with H1N1.

 

So, this turns it into a really interesting question because it could just as easily be worded "What is the benefit of not getting the H1N1 vaccine?"

 

Let’s look at the past year statistically.  The CDC tracks this information and makes it available online for all to see. 

The CDC has stated that 36,000 people die every year from influenza and influenza-related complications.  So far, (using their data for the USA as of October 31st, 2009) about 900 deaths and 21,829 cases of pneumonia have occurred for this flu season.

This number is clearly way below the 36,000 figure.   Interestingly, worldwide, numbers from CDC and WHO data show substantially fewer people dead from H1N1 than any seasonal flu in the past. The graph on the CDC site entitled "Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality for 122 US Cities" shows that, up to this point this year's flu mortality is way below that of 2008.

 

Since the countries in the Southern Hemisphere have already gone through their "flu season" we have the ability to learn from their experiences.  There was a study published last month in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) called the (ANZIC Study) that compiled quite a bit of data gathered from hospitalizations in Australia and New Zealand.  Their research from the past year concluded the following:
The proportion of patients who died in the hospital in our study is no higher than that previously reported among patients with seasonal influenza A who were admitted to an ICU."  So even in countries that have already had their "pandemic" they admit to it being no different than years past.

 

Here are the Statistics from the ANZIC Study completed 10/2009

From a population of over 25 million people, 722 were admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with confirmed H1N1 influenza. In total, 856 people were admitted with a flu virus, of those 11.3% were Type A Flu that was not subtyped and 4.3% were the regular seasonal flu.

If people are going to die it is rarely from the flu but from a secondary infection of pneumonia.  In a separate study done here in the USA for the first part of 2009 they also monitored the people admitted with viral pneumonia and here is what they found

Number of People Admitted to the Hospital each Year with Viral Pneumonia

  • 57 people in 2005
  • 33 people in 2006
  • 69 people in 2007
  • 69 people in 2008
  • 37 people in 2009

This shows that for 2009 there were 32 fewer people admitted due to viral pneumonia.  Our media and government agents continue to lead us to believe that large numbers of people are dying from “flu” when in fact, those that have died are mostly related to secondary underlying health problems.

Another statistic to note is that the average individuals actual risk of ending up in the hospital with the flu was 1 in 35,714 this is equal to three thousandths of one percent (0.00285%).  By any standard of measurement this would be considered an incredibly low risk.

Most Children Respond POORLY to Flu Vaccine

Babies respond poorly or not at all to either the seasonal flu vaccine or the H1N1 vaccine.  In a review of 51 studies covering 260,000 children below the age of 2 years it was found that they received no protection at all from the seasonal flu vaccine.

This was again corroborated by a recent study on the new H1N1 vaccine by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.  They found that 75% of young children below age 35 months received no protection from the H1N1 vaccine and that 65% of children between the ages of 3 years and 9 years received no protection from the vaccine.
 
The only way to improve on these numbers would be to add an adjuvant to the vaccine or give two injections as they have now implemented. With two injections the seroconversion comes up to an acceptable level to claim an antiviral protection but then you are dealing with twice the mercury load.   Both of these options will have consequences that only time will reveal.

 Canadian Study shows DOUBLE the Risk of Getting H1N1

This study was just presented for peer review so in all fairness it has not been published yet but it is worth reviewing since it is current information and it showed that people who got the regular flu shot became 2 times more likely to acquire the H1N1 infection.  In addition those who fell into this category ended up having a worse time with fighting the infection.  This was a study of over 12 million people getting the shot.  It will be interesting to see how that one pans out.  

Obesity is a Risk for H1N1 Infection

So far all the research shows that the H1N1 variant virus is mild as far as flu viruses go. Most people (99.99%) who acquire the infection have brief and mild illnesses.

Both this ANZIC study and the American study showed that obese people were admitted 6x more often than those of normal weight.   This has never been discussed by the media but sure should motivate us to stay in shape.

Other contributing factors found in this study were that 32.7% of those admitted to the ICU had asthma or other chronic pulmonary disease, far higher than the general population.

One of the mechanisms by which obesity may be contributing to infection is the fact that it is associated with a high incidence of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, both conditions increase the risk of having a serious infection, even to mild viruses.

 

Pregnancy and Vaccines

 

Pregnant females have been strongly encouraged to receive this H1N1 vaccine.  This has created several legal issues here in the USA since vaccinating those who are pregnant was prohibited in several states. This ruling came out due to research that showed that activating maternal immunity in the manner that occurs with immunization adversely altered fetal brain development.

 

What a horrible concept.  We fear a possible infection that at best we have a 1 in 35,714 chance of getting. This is an infection that the expecting mother has greater than a 99.98% chance of successfully fighting off and would be done with in 5-10 days.  Now due to this vaccination the mother is instead left with a 7-14 times higher risk of delivering a child with Autism or Schizophrenia.  Why would we make such a trade off.  Only fear of the unknown could drive a person to make such a poor decision.

 

Despite that fact States like Washington decided to take their chances and temporarily lift their ban on vaccinating the pregnant individual. Only financial gain could drive a knowing government official to make such a ridiculous decision.   I pray that I am wrong on this point but I anticipate this decision by the Washington State Health Department will prove to be an extremely foolish choice but we will have to wait a year or two to see if this prediction is accurate.

 
 
So What Should I Be Doing To Protect Myself?
 
Well, just by posing this question it feeds into the fear that is so prevalent today.  I really do not want to add to that one bit.  Each of us needs to understand that you are your best resource for staying healthy. 
 
I want people to understand that we have always had viruses and for decades have even had H1N1 strains.  The only reason we are even aware of it now is because the pharmaceutical industry has something to sell us.  The bottom line is that all the hype is about money.
 
I say this because if it was our health that was of concern we would not be standing in long lines creating demand for something that can potentially cause life altering damage to our central nervous system.  Only mass hysteria and fear can supress our common sense so radically as to make us actually buy into making such a poor choice for our health and that of our loved ones.
 
The pharmaceutical industry along with their bought and paid for politicians have seen that large enough numbers of people are leery of putting this poison into themselves so what did they do?  You know the story, "if you tell a lie enough times people will begin to believe it".  They manipulated statistics and continue to avoid the truth.  They have taken this lie and turned up the heat on the fear through the media and created shortages to increase demand. 
 
Please review the literature for yourself and see if you do not come to the same conclusions as I have posed here.  We should not be living in fear because we have all the resources we need for health.
 
Instead of buying into the fear we should be optimizing our immune system by increasing our Vitamin D stores to over 60ng/dl which in study after study has shown to protect us against the flu and all other infections like nothing else has remotely come close to doing.  Our bodies have been engineered to identify and eradicate viruses and bacteria but we need to do our part to allow the process to occur.  I have tested hundreds of local people in our community and have found no one on their initial blood evaluation to have adequate levels of Vitamin D to provide for immune protection.  This is so simple to do.  Do it!
 
In addition we should be losing weight as a nation and eliminating exposure to the myriad of environmental and food borne toxins that suppress our immune function.  Detox your body!
 
We should also be hydrating ourselves with proper water to the tune of 1/2 our body weight in ounces and lastly we should be getting enough sleep to allow our bodies to repair on a daily basis rather than pushing ourselves beyond what our body and mind can handle.
 
Lastly if you do get sick and it happens believe me I have 4 kids so I know,  follow my recommendations from my May 09 article on this topic.  At the end of the article I gave a detailed game plan for supplementation and home care.  
 
I do not make these statements lightly.  I have a family as you can see by the photos.  Most of you know how much I love them and want what is best for them.  I would never make a choice for their health that I thought would negatively affect them for the rest of their lives. 
 
Our health care system which is driven by big pharma and government is not there to promote health.  This type of Scam-Demic should open all of our eyes to that fact.  It is time to take health in our own hands and stop relying on the media for answers.
 
Wishing each of you the very best of health,
