I really wanted to try and get a grip on this whole thing. I'll try to present an argument that I think few will find argument with for all of us here at 12.160Mhz.
I going to present information from the mainstream media, specifically CBS and the CDC and the results are simply amazing. I know, why would I use their stats, right? Well, because, their stats tell the truth, surprisingly. Unfortunately the truth is spread out over a great number of pages and most people just don't access them.
The CDC site is comprehensive and I'm not using that word lightly. There's a lot of information on a lot of other information. I'll use information gleaned from other qualified authors and all of the information presented will be from credible and verifiable sources with links listed at the end of this article.
I like to look at factual evidence. Quotes are often good if the person making the quote has earned sufficient verifiable credentials through both experience and achievement over the course of their adult participation within society, wouldn't you agree?
Factual data is also helpful in a discussion, it establishes a foundation beyond reproach.
I believe I will prove, beyond any doubt, that it's all just obfuscation of data for profit. I think I will prove that all flu and pneumonia vaccines are not worth using but what's more, they won't necessarily protect you. I'll prove that most people are not dying from the flu and I'll also prove what they are dying from, and they're common viruses though some are rarely heard of and none can be vaccinated for, and all of my assumptions are based almost wholly on the CDC, with links provided.
Let's begin by looking at a typical flu season:
There can be between 150 and 200 different infectious pathogens—adenovirus
, (1) [there are 3 types of parainfluenza] the very common coronavirus
(2) [and there are 4-5 different strains of coronavirus] and, of course, pneumonia
—that produce flu-like symptoms. There is bocavirus
(3), which is responsible for bronchitis and pneumonia in young children and is the 4th leading virus. Incidently, boca is derived from the words bo
vine and ca
nine, referring to the two known hosts for other members of this genus; the bovine parvovirus which infects cattle, and the minute virus of canines which infects dogs, and there's metapneumovirus
(4), responsible for more than 5 percent
of all flu-related illnesses. You've never heard of syncytial
(5) virus, have you? It's responsible for bronchopneumonia and bronchiolitis, in children, especially in infants. Then there's Empyema
. The incidence of Empyema [not Emphysema
] has been increasing this century. But what's worse, they ALL
produce flu-like symptoms and they occur most frequently during the 'flu season,' right now in fact. Each of them can lead to death. None of them are affected by flu vaccinations. None.
Let's look at current statistics:
I found current statistics for as recently as October 10th 2009 and I realize today is the 30th but we'll accept them as the most current available. The statistics I've seen in print, the words, "1,000 flu deaths in US
" are the most recent that I've seen and using a standard search engine, the one most of us use, I found 1.5 million hits and those words appear in USA Today
combined with the word "surpass" and in Google
, The Guardian
and CBS News
, all combined with the word "widespread." All from today. (6) Over 1,000 deaths, in print
On the CDCs own web site, today, the following appears: "The percentage of deaths for 2009 H1N1 flu in the United States varies by age group. From August 30, 2009 through October 10, 2009, states reported 292 laboratory-confirmed 2009 H1N1 deaths to CDC." (7) Under 300 deaths, in print
Do you think 700 more people died in 15 days to give us that 1,000 figure, when in 45 days we found only 292 deaths? I don't. That couldn't be anyway, that 1,000 figure was thrown around before today. So is it 1,000 or is it 300 or is it another figure all together? I'm uncertain. If it's less than 300 as the CDC says that's only 6 deaths per state, unacceptable, but hardly worth a special flu shot. Getting in the car is far more dangerous and we never get immunized before driving. Let's take a look at a CBS investigation.
The recent CBS Investigative Report, published on October 21, is a great example of solid mainstream reporting, but you didn't hear about it did you? After the CDC refused to honor CBS’s Freedom of Information request to receive flu infection data for each individual state, the network performed independent outreach to all fifty states to get their statistics. Their report contradicts dramatically the CDC’s public relations blitz. For example, in California, among the approximate 13,000 flu-like cases, 86 percent tested negative for any flu strain. In Florida, out of 8,853 cases, 83 percent were negative. In Georgia 97.6% were negative and Alaska 99% were negative for flu among all reported flu-like cases. If the infectious-rate ratios obtained by CBS are accurate, the CDC’s figures are significantly reduced and agree with earlier predictions that the H1N1 virus will be simply an unwelcomed annoyance. (8)
So let's say it's immaterial how many people actually died but that it may even have been as many as 2,000 people that have died, just for arguments sake. (For those of you that refuse to cheat it's still 1,000, or is it 300?
Let's examine Percentages and the Illness:
The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion according to the Public Health Agency of Canada Advice to health care providers posted the following data for April, 2009. One hundred and twenty  cases of Severe Respiratory Illness with thirteen  deaths were reported and confirmed in Mexico. (9) The clinical symptoms include high fever, headache, ocular pain, shortness of breath and extreme fatigue. Rapid progression of symptoms to severe respiratory distress occurred in about 5 days. A high proportion requiring mechanical ventilation was reported. The same pathogen has not been identified in all cases. To date influenza A/H1N1 and B, and one parainfluenza strain have both been detected but for many cases, no pathogen has yet been identified. *Flu vaccines, take note, do not work for Parainfluenza.
That tells us that the death rate might be 10% of all those who become ill, unless some of those deaths were attributable to parainfluenza in which case the number would drop sharply as each death represents almost 1 full percentage point. So for those 13 deaths the correct figure for overall deaths from flu, based on these numbers, could be anywhere from 0% flu to 100% flu since they all might be parainfluenza virus deaths and not flu, or they all might not be parainfluenza deaths and they might be from the flu, and anywhere in between, right? We didn't do that well with percentages here did we, so let's just assume, for the mere benefit of the doubt like above, giving everyone around us our gracious confidence, that the death rate is actually 10%. Just remember, there is no vaccine for Parainfluenza and there are three basic types. (10)
Let's examine overall National statistics:
I don't know about you but I hear that 36,000 magic figure frequently. Seems to be the number bandied about most often by friends, neighbors and the media, can we agree on that?
If we take the combined figure of flu and pneumonia deaths for the period of 2001 we are left believing that 62,034 people died from influenza according to the CDC. The actual figures determined by Peter Doshi, then at Harvard University, are 61,777 died from pneumonia and only 257 from flu. Even more amazing, among those 257 cases only 18 were confirmed positive for influenza. A separate study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics for the flu periods between 1979 through 2002 revealed the true range of flu deaths were between 257 and 3,006, for an average of 1,348 per year. (11)
In the US, for example, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that about 36,000 people die from the flu each year. (12) But the real number is just a few hundred - maybe one or 2 percent of the reported numbers. Most of the other people died from pneumonia or empyema, and perhaps even from other serious complications but not from the flu. A vaccination wouldn't have protected ANY of them from being counted among the dead. It wouldn't have helped them, and it didn't, they died.
How is that?
As the New York Times reports, the system used by the CDC is complex, imprecise and totally anonymous. CDC officials examine and determine the average number of pneumonia deaths for a given year and then any deaths exceeding that average are attributed to the flu. It isn't an exact science apparently. They don't even know for sure they're flu deaths. They only measure excess deaths above the norm or average for pneumonia and attribute them to flu. In fact, in 2002, the city health officials of the State of New York estimated 2,500 flu virus deaths when the actual number of cases were two and the previous year there were none according to city health records. A vaccination wouldn't have protected these 2500 people either because they likely died from pneumonia, empyema, parainfluenza or another serious complication from an infectious pathogen other than the flu, but not from any actual flu viruses. (13)
National statistics are just as hard to understand as examining percentages and illness, aren't they? However, with a keen eye for detail one can easily ascertain that perhaps there's more going on here than meets the eye? And there seems to be consensus that deaths actually attributed to the flu as a result of the averaging method for pneumonia used by the CDC to determine flu deaths are actually disproportionately attributed to the flu and in all likelihood pneumonia, empyema, parainfluenza and other infections caused by a wide variety of possible infectious pathogens are responsible for these deaths and vaccination wouldn't have prevented them.
Specific Data On H1N1:
Since I've primarily used the CDC so far, let's refer to their data once again. The H1N1 virus has been explained to me as a new mutation of the flu virus and a new virus to humans. I understand that it's also been referred to as the Swine Flu.
Dr. Keigi Fukuda, representing the CDC said, "Let me see if I can get all these right, but the influenza vaccine, which is an inactivated flu vaccine, contains-- always contains 3 viruses, or has contained 3 viruses in the past several years, so it's a trivalent vaccine, and it contains viruses similar to the influenza-H3N2, H1N1
and B viruses, which were in circulation. And so this year's vaccine is no exception, and the viruses which are contained in the vaccine this year are similar to the viruses which are circulating worldwide right now, and so the coverage is pretty good."
Now I don't know about you, but I thought the H1N1 was a new virus. The interview with Dr. Fukuda from the CDCs own web site, posted there now, is a Telebriefing Transcript dated January 7th, 2003. OK, so it's not a new virus. That has nothing to do with our perceptions anyway, right?
Specific Data On The Flu:
From the CDCs own web site titled, 'Questions And Answers Regarding Estimating Deaths From Seasonal Influenza' we get the following quote, which is OUTRAGEOUS
, but honest.
"Statistical modeling was used to estimate how many flu-related deaths occurred among people whose underlying cause of death on their death certificate was listed as a respiratory or circulatory disease.
This means that the estimated flu deaths were taken from the deaths of people who died from respiratory or circulatory diseases only, not the flu. None of these people died from the flu, but, "because so many people died from respiratory and circulatory diseases we estimated that some of them also had the flu." [emphasis mine] What's worse, the flu shot, any and all flu shots, would not have protected them. They didn't die from the flu.
Vaccines In General:
No, I won't mention the fiasco in which Ford lost the presidency, the one where 100s of cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome were contracted and 25 people died while many were critically harmed for life. The vaccine that was quietly terminated. I'm sure by now you can see where this is going. I'm not saying don't get vaccinated. I won't say that.
Dr. Anthony Morris, Dr. John Chriss, and Dr. BG Young, in a paper titled, "Occurrence of Measles in Previously Vaccinated Individuals" concluded that "By the (US) government's own admission, there has been a 41% failure rate in persons who were previously vaccinated against the (measles) virus.
Again, Dr. Anthony Morris, who is also a distinguished virologist and former Chief Vaccine Officer at the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA), states that “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza
” and that “The producers of these vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.
I haven't cited these quotes. They appear frequently enough on the internet that I believe them to be accurate although there are people out there, many of them, that read them and manage to find a way to disparage them. I'm not sure how.
Media Reporting And Flu Deaths:
The sad truth about media reporting is that everyone is focused on the wrong aspects of the argument. What we need to investigate is this, "How many cases of respiratory illness did we have last year that were never reported, deaths from parainfluenza, deaths from pneumonia and deaths from empyema. How are those same deaths being reported this year?"
Oddly enough, I don't remember hearing about any deaths last year from the various death types the CDC uses to determine the number of flu cases. Remember, they don't measure flu cases they measure pneumonia, parainfluenza, empyema and circulatory diseases and average them. The people that die above the average are termed to have the flu. We don't know which flu unless they're specifically tested. It could be any one of the several that generally infect us each year. But it also might just as easily not be the flu at all and since the test is for respiratory and circulatory diseases and the flu is estimated from those we'll never know unless a specific test is done.
We are being told that the people that have died this year died from the Swine Flu (which really means pneumonia, parainfluenza, circulatory diseases and empyema since that's what they measure and collect the data on to average
) and just as many people probably died last year. They just didn't report about people that died of respiratory and circulatory diseases last year. I never heard reports before. Now they report on deaths attributed to respiratory and circulatory illnesses, the ones they average to estimate flu deaths. So we have a pandemic.
Dr. Tom Jefferson, head of vaccine studies at the prestigious international Cochrane Database Collaboration, after reviewing hundreds of influenza studies and statistical analyses, has said the WHO’s and CDC’s “performance is not very good.” And in an ITN News interview last month, Jefferson called the swine flu pandemic a “juggernaut they [the WHO, government agencies and vaccine makers] created.” For the 1992-1993 season, the prediction was off by 84 percent. For the 1994-1995 season, it was off 43 percent for the primary strain and off 87 percent and 76 percent for two other strains. The Laboratory Center for Disease Control’s study comparing vaccine strains with the strains appearing during the 1997-1998 season found the match was off by 84 percent. Again Dr. Jefferson in a Der Spiegel interview remarked, and this is the key, “there are some people who make predictions year after year, and they get worse and worse. None of them so far have come about, and these people are still there making these predictions. For example, what happened with the bird flu, which was supposed to kill us all?.... Swine flu could have even stayed unnoticed if it had been caused by some unknown virus rather than an influenza virus… An influenza vaccine is not working for the majority of influenza-like illnesses because it is only designed to combat influenza viruses. For that reason, the vaccine changes nothing when it comes to the heightened mortality rate during the winter months
” from other infectious pathogens, pneumonia, empyema, parainfluenza and circulatory infections.
The media also makes statements like, "2 schools closed with 35% of students home with flu." I have to ask, how do they know all of those kids are home with any illness at all? Perhaps a fair percentage are home to prevent themselves from becoming ill from contact with others, since they've managed to scare the bejeesus out of many Americans? The fact remains, they just don't know how many of these kids have the flu, pneumonia, parainfluenza, empyema, or one of many other viruses caused by common infectious pathogens that circulate this time of year. The media doesn't seem to help much, really. It appears as though they're complicit, doesn't it? You would really wish everyone was like CBS, all of the time, with everything, but certainly with the flu, pandemics, epidemics and surely when it comes to vaccines. And by delving deep into the CDCs own pages, we miraculously find the truth.
What's It All Mean?
I think it's all a great big hoax to make money, but you go ahead and make your own decision. The revolving door between the large Pharmaceutical companies is well known and there's no need documenting it here. While it's more than disconcerting to think that officials we should trust with our lives might be stretching the truth, they are. And it's more than disconcerting, it's criminal. If you get a flu shot it's just as likely that you're going to die as if you didn't get a flu shot. The H1N1 Swine Flu flu shot doesn't prevent the 3 types of parainfluenza, it doesn't prevent empyema (15), it won't prevent pneumonia, and it won't prevent any of the other viruses mentioned at the very beginning of this post. It also won't prevent any other flu viruses. What's worse, a flu shot won't prevent any of the viruses people are really dying from and that's the real shame.
Americans have the strongest desire I may have ever witnessed to believe in and put faith in powerful people. It's a driving desire, one that often causes blind faith. That's apparent in the thousands of people, and especially in the women and children, the pregnant women vaccinating themselves and their unborn children, the people lining up like sheep. It's apparent in the actions of people even when presented with factual evidence. And it's not some great conspiracy either, it's US politics and the US corporate world joined at the wallet.
The flu shot won't help you, it's worthless, and for most Americans it probably won't hurt most
of you, either. But for some
it will spell heartbreak. Americans fail to perform due diligence. Americans want to believe. And they do.
The evidence is out there. I've presented mine, primarily from the CDC.
