H1N1 Swine Flu is now front page news every hour and I'm receiving numerous calls every day from concerned people looking for ways to protect themselves. 

The medical community, news media and government all seem to have differing, sometimes conflicting views on H1n1 swine flu.

In this issue, get medical perspectives on common questions and concerns.  Ultimately, an H1N1 (or any) vaccine is your personal choice, make it an informed one!

H1N1 revealed even while the H1N1 Swine Flu debate rages on ... in the news media & government ...

As always, %FirstName% I welcome your comments and inquiries. Healthy Regards,

The H1N1 Swine Flu Rages ... In The News Media

Worldwide, according to CDC and WHO data, far fewer people have died form H1N1 than any seasonal flu in the past.

The debate to have or not have the H1N1 vaccine continues unabated in the workplace, in the home and even in medical circles.  It is interesting to note that the government position remains clear ... all citizens need the vaccine and news media is reinforcing that perception by reporting on H1N1 hourly. 

"Human beings, the potentially highest form of life expression on this planet have built the vast pharmaceutical industry for the central purpose of poisoning the lowest form of life on the planet--germs! One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemicals over nutrition."-- Dr. Richard Murray ...

So, what are we as responsible individuals to think?

Of course the H1N1 swine flu should not be taken lightly as it has specifically been identified as a contributing factor in a number of deaths. 

Reported incidents of death from H1N1 need perspective though.  Long before H1N1 appeared, influenza was claiming thousands of lives every year which did not happen to make for hourly news reports or urgent government action!  But that was then ...

When the World Health Organization declared H1N1 a potential killer flu pandemic,  it kicked off a firestorm of fear that continues today, but what is the observed reality vs. regular flu? 

  • Mar. 2003 - Canadian Medical Association Journal - Before H1N1 appeared on the scene, a US study (JAMA 2002;289[2]:179-86), funded by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), estimate that 36 000 Americans are dying from influenza-related complications each year. (the W.H.O. estimate 250k to 500k deaths globally)
  • Mar. 2003 - The estimates are "similar in Canada," says Dr. Theresa Tam, chief of respiratory disease with the Centre for Infectious Disease Prevention and Control and Health Canada estimates up to 2,500 influenza related deaths annually
  • Summer 2009 - Many AU/NZ doctor's declined to offer flu shots because they could not get malpractice insurance whereas the US government either has or will pass legal exemptions favoring doctors, and of course the pharmaceutical companies.
  •  23 Oct 2009  Ontario Ministry reported 88% of all deaths had underlying chronic medical conditions ...” (e.g. obesity, asthma or smoking related)
  • Nov. 2, 2009 - the Public Health Agency of Canada reported 101 deaths (nationally) related to the H1N1 virus this year.
  • Nov. 5, 2009 Infectious disease expert Dr. Neil Rau has said he believes the disease has likely peaked in most locations. (on Canada AM)

Spring 2009 - The Scare: "... thousands to die in the worst flu pandemic in decades!"

August 2009 - The Hype: Amid ongoing media reports and government posturing on the H1N1 flu pandemic, officials were stating that the ability to get ahead of the flu by making available the rushed to market vaccines was urgent and essential for every citizen.

November 2009 - The Reality: Actual deaths are very rare, H1N1 vaccines are limited in supply, distribution and availability poor  ... what happened to the deadly pandemic forecasts? 

  • Today, H1N1 fears are being fed by hourly media broadcasts of breaking news yet last year, flu killed thousands with little media attention.
  • Current scientific research indicates the current H1N1 strain is mild for most and lacks certain gene components considered essential to it becoming a mass killer. 
  • The vast majority of actual H1N1 deaths have been linked to pre-existing chronic conditions involving obesity, asthma  & respiratory complications of smoking.

There are credible, low cost ways to naturally build a strong, healthy immune system that defends against all forms of disease yet no government agency promotes them.  In fact, Canada's Bill C-6 seeks to limit or remove many natural health options currently available.

Who benefits from the flu pandemic?

With hundreds of millions of dollars at stake, H1N1 is big business for both government and pharmaceutical companies.

Hello, I'm from the government and I'm here to protect you.

" ... Parliament began passing laws to make the untested vaccine compulsory throughout the British Empire. Other countries of Europe followed suit. Once the economic implications of compulsory vaccinations were realized, few dared to disagree. Then, as now, the media were controlled by the vaccine manufacturers and the government, who stood to make huge money from the sale of these spurious vaccines."... Dr. Tim O'Shea
