CBC News The World Health Organization said Friday that 2,837 people have been reported as swine flu fatalities, as H1N1 ebbs and flows in various parts of the world. The death toll is up at least 625 in the last week, from 2,185 published in last week's update from the UN health agency.
Swine Flu Vaccine Disadvantages
The huge hoopla around the swine flu virus a few months ago has barely subsided, but a new controversy has brought the issue back into the public eye again. This time, the hype is about the swine flu vaccine, which reportedly causes alarming side effects, one of which even leads to death. According to medical experts, the vaccine has been directly linked to a neurological disorder – the Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) – which affects neural linings, leading to paralysis, respiratory problems and eventually, death.

By comparison, even though the death rate has fallen 74%, there is a far greater cause of death by measles world wide, yet measles is not considered a pandemic… WHY?????
The United Nations announced in December that world-wide Measles deaths have plummeted by 74 percent worldwide since 2000. The number of people dying from Measles every year has dropped from an estimated 750,000 to 197,000 between 2000 and 2007 mostly due to improvements in routine immunization activities.
How does the H1N1 flu spread?
A: Spread of this H1N1 virus is thought to be happening in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. People may become infected by touching surfaces such as a countertop with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

It is moronic to think that surgical and dust masks and washing ones hands can protect one from contacting the swine flu virus. Anyone that has ever used these masks when doing dusty work, knows that they do not even prevent dust from being inhaled, let alone microscopic viruses. Just because we can’t see the air we breathe, we assume that it is fresh and clean, except when we are consciously aware of pollutants in the air. What we are unaware of is that we are continually breathing in other peoples exhaled air as they are breathing in ours. We are not breathing in “fresh” clean air, we are breathing air that not only contains contaminates, but air that has also been exhaled by others around us, even animals, and as we do that, we are also inhaling microscopic parts of the other person or animal. It’s no different than when you breathe on a piece of glass or cold object and see your breath forming water droplets from the vapor you expelled from your lungs… You are SHARING air…. all the time…..
Sharing air is like someone tasting a piece of fruit and then handing it to you to taste and then you passing it along to another and so on. The cleanest (non human contaminated) air will be after it has been filtered and cleansed by rain or air found in the forest, other than that, it is a collective aerosol soup that we are breathing.
The other thing I find amusing is that people believe that if they wear their mask, and then dispose of it when they get home, that everything is OK. They fail to realize that if the virus was on their mask, it was also on their clothes and on other exposed parts of their body and that they bring it into their house where it mixes with the existing air. Dah!
Our body has an immune system that is well equipped to fight off any natural threat, and if it is healthy, there is no reason to fear becoming ill, unless that illness has something to show us. What the immune system, and your body can’t fight are man made viruses, that have no natural anti-bodies to suppress them from harming the body. This is what this swine flu is all about…
All I hope to do with this post is to make you THINK…. Whether you are aware enough to see that you are being fed mis-information or whether you think that I’m full of bulls**t is your choice…
