Swine flu cover up?

Throughout this year, the end of which is fast approaching, dire warnings about the magnitude and severity of the swine flu/H1N1 virus swept repeatedly across the United States and much of the world.  The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology last summer  raised the specter that the H1N1 flu strain could infect nearly one half the population of the entire United States. 

In typical knee-jerk fashion, Congress rushed to spend billions of taxpayer dollars to combat the looming catastrophe — appropriating close to $8 billion to fight the H1N1 flu virus this season.  The federal government already has spent nearly $6.5 billion purchasing and distributing doses of swine flu/H1N1 vaccine.  Tens of millions of doses of the vaccine that was specially developed and rushed through production to meet the perceived threat, were shipped to facilities in all parts of the country — where many millions now sit unused and unwanted.  One news network reported recently that perhaps as many as 250 million doses of swine flu vaccine may wind up being thrown away by the end of the flu season early next year. 

However, if one attempts to find out exactly what is happening to all that vaccine, one meets a brick wall.  How many doses have actually been administered?  What is the cost per dose?  How many doses are actually stockpiled by the federal government and by the states?  Repeated calls to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) yielded no meaningful information in answer to queries such as these; Internet searches for specifics were similarly unproductive.  These questions are relevant for the taxpayers of this country who have been footing the bill for the government’s efforts to meet the threat that it defined, but which now appears not to have materialized.  Yet answers are as hard to come by as a Christmas creche on a town square.

The CDC, which earlier this year appeared eager to offer information and opinion highlighting the impending swine flu catastrophe, is now strangely silent when probed about what has happened to all that medicine it said was essential and which it claimed we absolutely had to buy.  An organization which prides itself on the ability to define, track and defend against all manner of diseases and other threats to Americans’ health, now is unable to answer basic questions about what has happened to billions of dollars worth of vaccines that it said were needed immediately if not sooner.

Could it be the Obama Administration doesn’t want the American public — the taxpayers who pay for Washington’s spendthrift ways — to know how much money has been wasted already in this effort, and how much will be wasted in the near future on unused and unwanted flu vaccine? 

This is the same government that is pressuring Congress to rush through legislation that would give it effective control of virtually the entire American health care system.  Accurate information on the degree to which it miscalculated and overreacted to one season’s flu problem, wouldn’t help that agenda right now, would it?

Posting this one again. This man is funny as heck!

Dr. Shiv Chopra, featured in this interview, who says that this swine flu campaign is a hoax and that no flu vaccination has ever worked, has a Masters and a PhD in Microbiology, did a postdoc in Immuno-chemistry, worked for a drug company on vaccines, then worked for the equivalent of the FDA in Canada for thirty five years, including twenty years on vaccines?

Expert Explains the Flu Vaccine Deception and the Swine Flu Hoax

Dr. Shiv Chopra was a drug company insider, and also worked for what is now Health Canada — the Canadian equivalent of the FDA. He is uniquely qualified to explain why no flu vaccine has ever worked, and that swine flu and avian flu are nothing more than hoaxes.

Mercury and Autism
http://safeminds.org/mercury/history.html

Excerpt:

There is much evidence that autism is triggered by a toxic overload which adversely affects organs throughout the body, including the brain. Research indicates that several toxins and biological agents could be contributing to a toxic overload causing autism, including but not limited to:

* ethylmercury in vaccines
* methylmercury and other forms of mercury in the environment
* organic pesticides
* bisphenol A in plastics
* aluminum hydroxide (used in vaccines to stimulate an immune response)
* certain viruses

SafeMinds has also focused on the link between autism and vaccines. There is substantial evidence that in a substantial portion of autism cases, vaccines are the final trigger to toxic overload. SafeMinds has long maintained that the high-mercury vaccines has contributed to autism, and there is growing evidence that the low-mercury and no-mercury vaccines may also contribute to a synergistic toxicity leading to autism.

Generation Rescue: Science: Battling Misinformation
http://www.generationrescue.org/misinformation.html

Excerpt:

Battling Misinformation
As you can see for yourself in our Published Studies section, there is a growing body of published science pointing incontrovertibly to several truths:
• Neurological Disorders (NDs) in children are growing at a rate well in excess of population growth and are not the result of better diagnosis or widening diagnostic criteria.
• Children with NDs exhibit much higher levels of toxicity in their bodies.
• The ingredients in vaccines are neurotoxic and are capable of creating many of the medical issues children with NDs are suffering from.
And, yet, the popular press is constantly spreading the same tired myths about autism and other NDs. Namely:
• There is no known cause and no known cure
• The link between vaccines and NDs has been disproven
• Recovered children are almost never acknowledged despite their growing numbers

Gee, this must be just coincidence. I hope some “smart people” can convince all of the parent of these children to not be vaccinated so more of them can die.

A new study of a vaccine against rotavirus infection among African newborns shows the drug is highly effective against the disease, which can cause major gastrointestinal distress and death in babies and young children.

Last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that a vaccine be given to infants to prevent severe complications from rotavirus, which can cause potentially fatal diarrhea and dehydration. Malnourished babies or those infected with the AIDS virus are most at risk. Rotavirus kills a half million children worldwide each year, 230,000 of them in six of seven African countries with high rates of rotavirus infection.

A study, commissioned by the WHO and released Wednesday that evaluates the vaccine’s effectiveness, prompted the health agency to recommend the vaccine for all infants.

Researchers with PATH – a global non-profit group specializing in vaccine research – found the vaccine called Rotarix reduced severe complications among groups of children in South Africa and Malawi by an average of 60 percent.

Study senior author Kathleen Neuzil of the Seattle, Washington-based non-profit is delighted with the results.

“This is very exciting. This is not a vaccine that needs to be developed,” she said. “This is a vaccine that we have now that is used in many parts of the world and, again, has the potential to save millions of lives over the next 10 years or so. And rarely do you have interventions with that kind of impact.”

Two vaccines, including Rotarix, are widely available in the developed world, preventing severe complications in about 95 percent of the rotavirus cases in the developed countries.

In the South African study, 3,100 infants in South Africa were vaccinated with Rotarix. Of these, 77 percent of them experienced mild complications compared to children who did not receive the vaccine.

Researchers in Malawi enrolled 1,700 infants and the vaccine reduced the frequency of severe rotavirus complications by 50 percent.

Not that anyone needs a college education to figure out the many things wrong with much mainstream medicine and big agribiz, of course. Have a good one! Do some more homework! Auf wiedersehen.
