Title: Swine Flu: Aporkalypse Now
Post by: jodi f. on May 02, 2009, 09:11:33 AM
My husband Scott, who is a teacher at Bakersfield College, just received this email message from a colleague. It's a letter to this colleague from one of his friends. I think it's helpful to have information from this close to the source.

Steve, we just spoke with our daughter, Katherine.  She is a biologist
at a level 3 biological warfare lab in New Mexico.  Her lab is doing
research on the swine flu virus because the government is just
throwing money at the problem.  She says that the flu is a level 2
virus; basically just a flu.

She says that the scientific community is dumbfounded by the panic
responses.  She says that our government is a major contributor to the
panic, rather than calming public fears.  There is so much money being
throw at the biological labs that the scientists are taking it and
doing the research because it is very profitable to study such a
simple virus.

Her recommendation is that people should wash their hands thoroughly
(20 seconds); and stay home if they are sick.

I hope you can forward this information to the BC community and Public
Health Department as a means to introduce facts into the current
emotional situation.

Thanks Jodi for your information. I also read the article about swine flu written by Dr. Mercola in early May. He explained why this swine flu pandemic is highly unlikely and the causes of this flu.

It's extremely important to wash your hands thoroughly! This is something that we should do everyday, not just wait until when you have flu. :)

Enjoy reading!

Andrew Bosworth, Ph.D., believes the Swine Flu danger is greatly exaggerated--even a hoax. He says:

"The alarm has been sounded. Politicians, pharmaceutical executives and media conglomerates would have us believe that a 1918-style pandemic is a real threat. The 1918 pandemic, however, evolved out of conditions unique to World War I, for four specific reasons."

Read his reasons here:

At the the end of his article is a link to his recent book entitled Biotech Empire.  This book, too, appears very interesting, published less than a year ago.

 "This book examines the politics of bio-technologies: genetically-mofified foods, cloning, bovine growth hormones, corn ethanol, disease mongering, anti-depressants, sex technologies, eugenics, robotocs, neuromarketing, biometric surveillance and other topics. The book consists of essays written from a libertarian and populist perspective."

Very interesting article below questions the basis of the swine flu histeria. Is it a natural pandemic or created pandemonium?

Here is a very informative video just released by Dr. Mercola. What to do if you are forced to take the flu shot. in the 4th video he gives good preventative measures.

I am so grateful for you posting that information regarding the Swine Flu.  The level of fear out there regarding this flu is easily contagious!  I am glad to have some knowledgeable information and be able to put this sickness in perspective.
Thanks again.

Here is a new study questioning whether vaccinations for flu have any positive effect:
