    Default What's in Vaccines

    Deadly Vaccines And The Harm To The Ummah

    Anonymous writes "[Note by Taliban Online team: This email was sent to us by a brother who has a great concern for the Ummah Masha'Allah. He has also made a huge effort to inform us on important articles when they apear on the Internet, may Allah reward him, Ameen. Please forward this information, as it is very urgent.]

    The use of Vaccinations is one of the most miss-understood and effective methods of incapacitating and killing Muslims.
    When you read this email in its entirety, Inshallah you will know that dealing with this issue is not much different than dealing with the issue of Muslims being attacked by bullets and bombs.

    ------------------------------------------------

    The main difference is that we have, for our entire lives, been conditioned by the Kuffar and ignorant Muslims, to believe the many lies and deceptions regarding modern 'medicine'.

    We have become defenseless victims.
    With your assistance we will, Inshallah, change that.

    My job is not easy and often frustrating.
    I have spent hundreds of hours researching this issue and yet I realize that due to 'fear' conditioning and dissinformation, few of my brothers and sisters in Islam will be willing to learn about the truth about Vaccines. Without this knowledge many Muslims will die unnecessarily.

    We are told in the Qur'an to seek knowledge, the meaning refers to the worldly life as well as the Religion (Dunya and Deen).

    Allah (swt) says in the Qur'an, the approximate translation of the meaning is:
    When a bad or evil person comes to you with information VERIFY it to avoid fitna or problems.
    Certainly these New World Order Elites who own the Pharmaceutical companies and also run America
    are, to say the least, evil and are not to be trusted.

    The sad and frustrating reality is that 99% of all Muslims blindly trust their lives (for Medicines and Vaccines) to these same evil people that are murdering Muslims world wide.

    Vaccines are dangerous and the US Government is extremely deceptive about the Vaccination information that it puts out.

    Look at this for accurate information: http://www.mercola.com/2001/aug/18/vaccine_myths.htm
    Most Vaccines are very dangerous and do not offer protection.
    Look at this example regarding the Polio Vaccination: http://www.nccn.net/~wwithin/polio.htm

    The Smallpox vaccine does Not Prevent Smallpox but actually Increases it. Look at
    this: http://www.mercola.com/2000/dec/31/s...x_vaccine2.htm

    The US government intends to Vaccinate everyone in the USA. There are about 5 to 8 million Muslims in
    America. Conservative studies show it is likely that for every Million vaccinated 250 will die from the vaccine. (That is 2,000 Muslim deaths). Other studies show that an even greater number will die.

    A substantial number of Muslims may receive permanent injury such as perpetual illness from a weakened immune system, epileptic seizures and
    Autism (Permanent Brain Damage).

    Autism is already an Epidemic due to Vaccinations. Please look at this:
    http://www.mercola.com/2001/mar/3/autism_epidemic.htm
    Also: http://www.whale.to/vaccines/damage.html
    One child or infant from every 250 could become Autistic.
    If, for example, there are 3 million Muslim children and babies in the US, 12,000 could become Autistic. Estimates of brain damage to a lesser degree, may include approximately 1 from
    each hundred which would be 30, 000 Muslim children in America.

    After vaccinations are given, it is no accident that other drugs such as antibiotics are prescribed.
    When a person is exposed to post Vaccination; antibiotics, other drugs and specific chemical
    substances often dangerous symptoms and permanent disabilities occur.

    The US government has a history of INTENTIONALLY and SECRETLY
    placing dangerous ingredients inside Vaccines.
    They put a monkey virus that contributed to AIDS in Hepatitis B Vaccine,this targetted black Americans and Africans. http://www.boydgraves.com/

    Many millions have died. The dangers increased when the vaccinated people were intentionally exposed to additional drugs.

    The so called AIDS 'remedies such as AZT, Chemotherapy and others which are supposed to cure the Patient have actually caused Millions to die.

    Look at this, Genocide in a vaccine: http://www.all.org/issues/rini002.htm And This:
    http://216.239.39.100/search?q=cache...hl=en&ie=UTF-8

    A dangerous Hormone was secretly mixed with tetanus toxoid vaccine. This Hormone causes sterility and killed developing fetuses.

    Tetanus shots are usually given to high or medium risk groups such as males who may be exposed
    at their work places and farms, to puncture wound injuries that may cause Tetanus.

    The vast majority of Women are not at risk from Tetanus however Women between 15 and 45
    years old were secretly targeted for sterilization and the murder of their developing fetuses.
    Without consent recipients were sterilized; those who were pregnant lost their babies.
    Despite repeated accusations, the Manufacturer continued to lie about the Hormone until presented with lab reports proving that the killer substance was present in the Vaccine.

    The targeted women were given up to 3 or 4 times the normal frequency and dosage for a tetanus shot. These extra shots and dosages were 'necessary' so that the hormones
    would effectively sterilize the woman and if she was pregnant, kill her unborn Baby.

    The Hormone caused bleeding (miscarriages) and allergies. Fetusses were murdered in the womb.
    Here is the Proof: http://thinktwice.com/birthcon.htm and Here: http://www.afgen.com/populate.html

    May Allah (swt) Inspire us to Protect our sisters in Islam and their unborn Children, Amen.

    Monsanto, one of the biggest chemical producing companies in America, sold a chemical to the
    Philippines to be used at Banana plantations for the purpose of killing Nematodes.
    In a law suit filed in America, it was admitted that although the manufactures new that the
    chemical caused sterility they did not properly inform the farmers.
    The use of this insecticide caused 16,000 men to become permanently sterile.
    The majority of the victims (About 10,000) were Muslims. They received only about
    1,200 dollars each as compensation for being PERMANENTLY STERILIZED.

    The enemies of Islam are very happy about their ability to use chemicals and vaccines to exterminate present and future
    generations of Muslims. Knowledge can be an effective and valuable weapon.
    With your help, Inshallah, we can inform the Ummah and stop this needless death and suffering.

    Muslims in Mindanao Philippines were INTENTIONALLY MURDERED by the SMALLPOX VACCINE.
    The deaths were CAUSED by the Vaccine.
    Some of the Muslims in Mindanao, by their faith in Allah (swt), were saved them from
    death because (some of them) refused to use the Vaccine.

    Here is the proof, please read the article:
    http://www.mercola.com/1999/sep/26/w...at_success.htm

    Before 9/11 the Taliban, May Allah (swt) protect them, due to lack of knowledge, allowed Oral Polio Vaccine to be given to Afghani children. We have no way to know how many thousands became Autistic and how many were killed.
    Look Here re the dangers: http://home.sprynet.com/%7Egyrene/didyou~1.htm
    and Here: http://www.vaccineinfo.net/

    America is run by the heads of Banks and Corporations. The Drug Industry is
    the largest industry in the World and has great influence and power over the US Govt.

    Look Here: http://www.mercola.com/2001/feb/24/drug_industry.htm
    Both President Bush and his father are Involved with these corporations. The
    Elite New World Order Crusader Bosses are among the owners of major Pharmaceutical
    companies. They are currently and intentionally targeting people especially Muslims, just as the US weapons industry has done, for death and destruction.
    Some of the same people who manufacture weapons that kill Muslims are also heavily
    involved in the Manufacturing of Vaccines.

    The Government and Drug Industry continue to use fear tactics to pursued people into taking Vaccinations.
    They lie about the 'advantages' of Vaccines and hide the dangers of Vaccinations.Vaccines and
    the additional substances mixed in with them, are being used as an effective
    weapon against Muslims. Many Vaccines have Aluminum, formaldehyde and Thermasol a preservant that contains 49.6% Mercury.
    Look here: http://thinktwice.com/mercury.htm
    Mercury is among the most toxic substances known to man, it causes brain damage. Smallpox vaccine is known to contain Thermasol.

    Many vaccines contain fluids and or blood from pigs and monkeys.
    http://www.whale.to/vaccines/ingredients.html
    Many vaccines contain gelatin from cows and pigs as well as human aborted fetal baby tissue.
    I have a specific list of these Vaccines including the haram ingredients, the Vaccine names, the manufactures names and phone numbers.

    Vaccines are being used to weaken Muslims with the specific intention to dominate us and keep us unable to FIGHT in JIHAD.

    In World War 2, Prescot Bush, the current president Bush's Grand father, advised Adolph Hitler and funded him through Union Bank. Hitler used drugs to weaken and control his enemies. I
    have documented proof of everything that I am writing to you in this letter and more.
    Upon your request I will send it to you.

    There is a limited number of Islamic news outlets and the majority of them are run by Muslims that are afraid to post articles that will displease the Kuffar. I know, by your work, that you are not among those Muslims that fear the Kuffar, that is why your help is needed!

    Time is running out, I am humbly requesting that
    you post a few of the articles I sent you regarding the smallpox Vaccination. Please
    include the links found on this email so that your readers can investigate further.

    Many of our brothers and sister's lives are at stake, especially the very young, the old and the weak.

    Is it not a Jihad when the Kuffar attack us with guns, bombs, germ warfare, Chemicals and or deadly Vaccines?

    We must, at least, inform our brothers and sisters so that they can make an educated decision regarding Vaccine usage, not one that is based on fear without knowledge perpetrated by the enemies of Islam.

    The urgency of this matter cannot be ignored and I do not wish to be responsible to Allah (swt) for not
    informing my fellow Muslims of this real and present danger.

    My intention is that you present this information on your site and ask your readers to pass it on to all Islamic sites, groups, family, friends, co-workers etc.

    With your web site Inshallah, thousands of Muslims will be saved.

    You are welcome to edit this article as you like and place it on your site.

    Allahoakbar!

    I Love You For Allah (swt).

    Jazakalakhair!"

    Question Have you vaccinated your children?

    Assalamu 'Alaikum Everyone

    I have done a lot of research on the matter of vaccination/immunization and I have come up with my own conclusions about the subject. I am very curious to know if any of you have or have not vaccinated your children and why/why not. Have you yourself been vaccinated and does that play a role in your decision? Even if you don't have children yet, when you do, do you plan on immunizing them??? Before I tell you what I have found (and decided) I'm curious to hear from all of you.

    Salaam

    Don't have any kids but iA in the future I would definitely immunise them, if you're talking about the MMR vaccine then the evidence for it being linked to autism is pretty paltry, and has been disproved in many journals. The scare about in the 80s has meant that there was a mumps epidemic in 16-25 yr olds a couple of years ago, which put a lot of males a risk of infertility. And there was a rise in measles cases, some of which were fatal, despite the disease being virtually eradicated before that.

    But yeah, thats about the only one I know about. Are there issues with other vaccinations?

    I was vaccinated as a child, but of course that was my parents decision. I have children and with the first couple I had them vaccinated because I was under the interpretation that it was the right thing to do. But later on I did some research in to vaccinations and I was very distrubed by what I found, so I decided not to have any more of my children vaccinated. To me vaccinations can do more harm in the future then good, everything happens per Allahs decree thats where I put my trust.

    Sis Nur what was it that you found in your research that disturbed you? Was it related to an Islamic point of view or a medical one? (or both..?)

    Would choosing not to have one's children vaccinated be a viable option for those living in "third world" nations?

    As far as I know, there is nothing wrong religiously/Islamically with vaccinations. It's similar to medicine: we are encouraged (even obligated when it is necessary for life) to use medicine to heal ourselves.

    As fas as being safe or effective, there is controversy. Personally I was vaccinated as a child and I did vaccinate my kids. I felt like that's almost like the default thing to do with kids in America nowadays. (Not a very good excuse, I know. But it's difficult to question every single thing that you do or is recommended you do. Often you just trust the ones who know, in this case the medical professionals.)

    I know there was some article in the Al-Jumuah magainze a few yrs. back about it. I knew there was controversy about vaccines, but only heard the pro-vaccine side. I didn't really hear the entire other side of the story until recently. These site have some info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaccination and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaccine_controversy

    There are also some apparently good books I haven't read yet about it, too.

    Honestly I'm still undecided about the whole issue. What do others think?

    May Allah guide us to that which is safest.

    I would say both, from the Islamic point of view it is haram to put anything inside of your body that will knowingly bring harm to you, things that are filthy, or animals that have not been killed properly.

    Medically because of the ingredients in vaccinations, they can lead to other health problems later in life. Some of the things that are in these vaccines are: formaldehyde, mercury, acetone, aluminium phosphate these are considered toxins, but we're given them to our children. There are impurities such as pig blood, pus, calf serum, you also get injected with a portion of that disease, so your body can fight it off thats how you develope an immunity to it.

    It's been four years since I had my last child, so I don't know if anything has changed or not, but when my childs doctor gave me a list of the ingredients in these vaccinations I was disgusted. I was also told by my childs doctor that after a child reaches a certain age they are no longer subseptable to certain diseases so if they were'nt immunized against them, they no longer need the shot.

    One of the great things about breast feeding your baby is that mother's milk contains all necessary nutrients for the baby and provides the baby with immunity against various infections, of course I believe that the mother should be in good health for the milk to actually benefit the child. They are always going to tell you that immunizing your child is the best thing for them but is it really? I suppose it is a matter of opinion.

    You sure about this? As far as I know vaccines are produced in controlled environments so the cartridges can't pick up any impurities. Why would there be blood or pus in the environment where vaccines were produced anyway? Or is it that those are components of the vaccine?

    And yeah, they work by giving the body a little of the antigen that causes a particular disease to provoke a host response (B lymphocytes produce the particular antibody).

    As far as I know, the antigen can be from humans, but even if it is from an animal, it's not part of it - it's an organism in it's own right. It can be live or attenuated etc, so it's not even always the actual organism that causes the disease - it can even be a protein from its capsule, like with the hepatitis C vaccine.

    The response provoked is very low level, but it means that if the body encouters the disease again, it will have its secondary response which is a lot more effective against the disease. The disease can't be produced the second time round, because the body's ready for it. Like how you can't get chicken pox twice (but without all the spots and itching). The vaccine isn't something which will 'knowingly bring harm to you', but it will protect you, inshaAllah, later in life.

    One of the great things about breast feeding your baby is that mother's milk contains all necessary nutrients for the baby and provides the baby with immunity against various infections, of course I believe that the mother should be in good health for the milk to actually benefit the child.
    A mother's immunity to some diseases is passed on, but I think it only lasts for the first 6 months of life (?). Even so, it's important that the mother has been vaccinated, or the baby will still be vulnerable.

    I kid you not! Like I said this was four years ago, I don't know what their doing with them now. I asked my babies doctor to give me a list of ingredients in the vaccines, and those were some of them. And this list was not something she handwrote, it was from the actual vaccine.

    I had both my sons vaccinated but I did miss a few of them and despite I didn't think it was a HUGE deal their doctors disagreed.

    Even now with Daliyah who has only had her before her 6 months shots done, she hasn't had any done since. She's fine. She has had her round of flus though but I think that's normal for children that age. I also know of kids that age that have gotten their vacinations done yet they still got sick. And these days vacinations cost a lot of money, they're not cheap anymore and Im trying to wonder if it's good or not if it's worth it or not.
    Patience & Understanding is the key to happiness. Is it not time to remember & trust in Allah?

    Default Juvenile Diabetes And Vaccination:

    JUVENILE DIABETES AND VACCINATION:
    NEW EVIDENCE FOR A CONNECTION
    http://www.909shot.com/Diseases/juvenilediabetes.htm

    In the fall of 1997, the Centers for Disease Control confirmed that the number of Americans living with diabetes has skyrocketed in the past 40 years with a record sixfold increase in this chronic disease since 1958. It is estimated that nearly 16 million Americans are suffering with diabetes and 5 million more may have it but not know it.

    Over the past four decades, intensive national mass vaccination campaigns have dramatically increased vaccination rates among American children who now are getting 34 doses of 10 different viral and bacterial vaccines before they enter kindergarten. Recent published data in the medical literature suggest increasing numbers of childhood vaccines may be playing a role in the big jump in the number of cases of juvenile diabetes.

    What is diabetes?

    The most frequent kind of diabetes is diabetes mellitus, a chronic degenerative disease caused when the pancreas either fails to produce a protein hormone called insulin or the body's cells are resistant to the action of insulin. Without insulin, the body cannot process and use glucose, a blood sugar which is a chief source of energy for living organisms and is found in certain foods like fruit. If the body's cells have become resistant to insulin, glucose cannot be moved from the blood to cells in order to be transformed into energy.

    There are two types of diabetes mellitus: Type I, called insulin-dependent juvenile diabetes, and Type II, called adult-onset diabetes.

    Type I Diabetes - Type I diabetes, also called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), occurs mostly in children and young adults. Five to 10 percent of those diagnosed with diabetes are Type I diabetics. In Type I diabetes, the body cannot produce insulin. This causes glucose to build up in the bloodstream and be secreted from the body in the urine, leaving the body to starve for energy because the body's cells cannot get the necessary nourishment provided by glucose. Symptoms include excessive thirst, hunger, urination, dehydration and often weight loss. Insulin injections must be taken daily to keep blood glucose levels stable.

    Type II Diabetes - Type II diabetes occurs primarily in middle age and makes up 90 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. The pancreas still produces insulin in Type II diabetes but the body's cells are resistant to the action of insulin and glucose is not absorbed properly by the cells. Obesity and a family history of diabetes are risk factors for Type II diabetes. Exercise, weight control, diet restrictions and medication can be used to control Type II diabetes in many cases. Temporary insulin injections may also be given.

    Chronic Disease and High Medical Costs - Diabetes (Type I and Type II) is a chronic disease that can become progressively debilitating for the individual as time goes on. When uncontrolled or inadequately controlled, diabetes leads to blindness, loss of hearing, heart and kidney disease, strokes, cataracts, nerve damage, paralysis of the intestinal tract, gangrene requiring amputation of limbs and death.

    There have been estimates that some 125 million people worldwide have diabetes and that this number is expected to double by the year 2025. According to the CDC, nearly 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in the US every year, with about 6 percent of the US population now thought to have the disease.

    Diabetes is the nation's seventh leading cause of death and kills or is a co-factor in the deaths of some 200,000 Americans every year. The leading cause of acquired blindness, diabetes contributes to about 24,000 new cases of acquired blindness in the US every year. Half of all amputations performed in the US are caused by diabetes, which means that about 54,000 amputations are diabetes-related. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and the need for dialysis and kidney transplants. Between 1980 and 1994, diabetes rose 33 percent among black Americans and 11 percent among white Americans.

    Costs to cope with the growing epidemic of diabetes are high. In 1992, it was estimated that diabetes cost the US $85 billion for medical treatment and an additional $47 billion for lost work time, disability payments and premature death.

    Old Reports, New Evidence of Vaccine Connection - Doctors started making reports in the medical literature as early as 1949 that some children injected with pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine (now part of the DPT or DTaP shot) were having trouble maintaining normal glucose levels in their blood. Lab research has confirmed that pertussis vaccine can cause diabetes in mice.

    As diabetes research progressed in the 1960's, 70's and 80's, there were observations that viral infections may be a co-factor in causing diabetes. The introduction of live virus vaccines, such as live MMR vaccine which is made from weakened forms of the live measles, mumps and rubella viruses, has raised questions about whether live vaccine virus could by a co-factor in causing chronic diseases such as diabetes.

    One virus, the rubella virus, has already been shown to be associated with diabetes. Babies infected with the rubella virus in their mother's womb, who are born with congenitally acquired rubella syndrome, often develop Type I diabetes. One 1980 study concluded that rubella virus can infect pancreatic islet cells and that the infection can severely reduce levels of secreted insulin. Another study in the 1980's demonstrated that, after live rubella vaccination, the rubella virus can persist in the body of a vaccinated person for many years.

    Like rubella, mumps disease has been strongly associated with the development of Type 1 diabetes. Like the rubella virus, the mumps virus can infect pancreatic islet cells. And like the live rubella vaccine, there are persistent reports in the medical literature that some children develop diabetes after receiving live mumps vaccine.

    An accumulation of scientific research today suggests that Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmunity is created when the immune system malfunctions and attacks its own body. Genetic predisposition and environmental factors (such as a viral infection) are thought to be co-factors in the development of autoimmune disease, including diabetes.

    Because a vaccine artificially manipulates the immune system in order to make it act as if it has recovered from and is immune to a particular disease, some scientists are investigating whether vaccination can be a co-factor in the development of autoimmune diseases like diabetes. This research is particularly important for individuals who may have a genetic predisposition to autoimmunity, such as those with a family history of autoimmune disease.

    New Evidence of Vaccine-Associated Increases in Diabetes - Evidence of a vaccination-diabetes connection has been strengthened since 1996 by the epidemiologic investigation of J. Barthelow Classen, M.D., a former researcher at the National Institutes of Health and the founder and CEO of Classen Immunotherapies, Inc.. Dr. Classen is developing ways to prevent autoimmune disease and maintains that one reason there is a growing epidemic of diabetes in the world is because vaccines given to children at two months and older can induce immune-mediated diabetes.

    Classen has analyzed mass vaccination and disease incidence data from foreign countries, which keep better records of diabetes incidence than the U.S., as well as has conducted basic science research experiments on mice and rats to support his argument. Beginning with lab experiments, he demonstrated that 8 week old rats and mice injected with DPT vaccine had a higher incidence of diabetes than those who were not injected with DPT vaccine at 8 weeks old. Then he searched for evidence in existing epidemiological data on human populations to suggest that injecting two month old babies with vaccines causes an increased incidence in diabetes.

    In the May 24, 1996 New Zealand Medical Journal, Dr. Classen reported that there was a 60 percent increase in Type I diabetes (juvenile diabetes) following a massive campaign in New Zealand from 1988 to 1991 to vaccinate babies six weeks of age or older with hepatitis B vaccine. His analysis of a group of 100,000 New Zealand children prospectively followed since 1982 showed that the incidence of diabetes before the hepatitis B vaccination program began in 1988 was 11.2 cases per 100,000 children per year while the incidence of diabetes following the hepatitis B vaccination campaign was 18.2 cases per 100,000 children per year.

    More Vaccines Equal More Diabetes - In the October 22, 1997 Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, Classen presented more data further substantiating his findings of a vaccine-diabetes connection. He reported that the incidence of diabetes in Finland was stable in children under 4 years of age until the government made several changes in its childhood vaccination schedule. In 1974, 130,000 children aged 3 months to 4 years were enrolled in a vaccine experimental trial and injected with Hib vaccine or meningococcal vaccine. Then, in 1976, the pertussis vaccine used in Finland was made stronger by adding a second strain of bacteria. During the years 1977 to 1979, there was a 64 percent increase in the incidence of Type 1 diabetes in Finland compared to the years 1970 to 1976.

    In 1982, another vaccine was added to the childhood vaccination schedule in Finland. Children aged 14 months to six years were given the live MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine. This was followed by the injection of 114,000 Finnish children aged 3 months and older with another experimental Hib vaccine. In 1988, Finland recommended that all babies be injected with the Hib vaccine.

    The introduction of these new vaccines in Finland were followed by a 62 percent rise in the incidence of diabetes in the 0 to 4 year old age group and a 19 percent rise of diabetes in the 5 to 9 year old age group between the years 1980 and 1982 and 1987 and 1989. Classen concluded:

    "The net effect was the addition of three new vaccines to the 0-4 year old age group and a 147 percent increase in the incidence of IDDM [insulin dependent diabetes mellitus] , the addition of one new vaccine to the 5-9 year olds and a rise in the incidence of diabetes of 40 percent, and no new vaccines added to the 10 to 14 year olds and a rise in the incidence of IDDM by only 8 percent between the intervals 1970-1976 and 1990-1992. The rise in IDDM in the different age groups correlated with the number of vaccines given."

    Biological Mechanism Described - Classen says that when infants are given vaccines at two months of age and older, some infants may already have a sub-clinical inflammation of insulin secreting cells due to exposure to diabetes-inducing viruses carried by the mother such as coxsackievirus B infections. When babies with this sub-clinical inflammation are injected with vaccines, the existing inflammation is made worse by the release of interferon and causes an autoimmune state leading to immune mediated Type 1 diabetes later in childhood. Classen's data shows there can be a 1 to 4 year latency between the time the vaccines are given and Type 1 diabetes appears.

    Classen, whose company has developed pediatric immunization methods to prevent diabetes, believes that Type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune disorders can be prevented by vaccinating babies immediately after birth. He points to a much lower incidence of Type 1 diabetes in children in Sweden who were given BCG vaccine at birth compared to Swedish children who were given BCG vaccine at two months of age, data which correlates with experiments he conducted on mice and rodents he injected with BCG vaccine at birth and two weeks of age. He also points to data from other countries such as Ireland and Switzerland to make his case for vaccination at birth. Classen maintains that when vaccines are given at birth, the infant's body releases interferon which protects the child from being colonized with diabetes-inducing viruses carried by the mother.

    Vaccine Trials Flawed - Whether vaccination at birth will prevent vaccine-associated autoimmunity such as diabetes is not as clear as Classen's analysis of compelling data suggesting vaccines can be a co-factor in the development of Type I diabetes in children. Without large, well designed case controlled studies, his proposed solution to vaccinate at birth cannot be confirmed.

    In the meantime, Classen is critical of past and current vaccine trials used by drug companies and the FDA to license vaccines and used by the CDC to make mass vaccination policies. In conclusion, he said:

    "The results indicate that previous vaccine trials are flawed because they are not designed to detect associations between vaccination and autoimmune diseases, such as IDDM. Prospective clinical trials are needed to further evaluate the effect of vaccines on IDDM."

    NVIC Calls For Government Funding of Independent Researchers - Although more than $1 billion dollars is appropriated by Congress to federal health agencies every year to develop, purchase and promote the mass use of vaccines by American children, none of that money is used to fund independent vaccine researchers to investigate vaccine-associated health problems like diabetes. In fact, reputable researchers outside of government like Dr. Classen, who want to do vaccine adverse event research, are not given government grants to do that kind of research.

    The National Vaccine Information Center maintains that there is an inherent conflict of interest in allowing the same health officials in federal agencies responsible for researching, developing, regulating, making national policy for and promoting vaccines to also be in control of monitoring vaccine reactions and evaluating health problems associated with vaccines. There is a similar conflict of interest in relying solely on scientific data supplied by drug companies, who make and sell vaccines for a profit, to license vaccines safe for use by the public without corroborating independent scientific data about the vaccine's safety.

    "Health officials in federal agencies have no accountability to anyone when it comes to setting priorities for how our tax dollars are used when it comes to vaccine research," said NVIC president and co-founder Barbara Loe Fisher. "They can choose to do whatever they want to do with the money they get from Congress. And they choose to ignore the mounting evidence that vaccines are playing a role in the current epidemic of chronic disease, such as diabetes, in our society. Instead, our tax money is used to create more vaccines to add to the mandatory vaccination schedule for our children. There have never been and there are no plans to fund large independent studies to back-up the scientific validity of the government's current vaccine policies and independently confirm they are safe."

    Default WHO raises swine flu alert level

    World Health Organization on Wednesday raised its alert level for the fast-spreading swine flu to its next-to-highest notch, signaling a global pandemic could be imminent.<o>

    </o> The move came after the virus spread to at least 10 U.S. states from coast to coast and swept deeper into Europe.

    WHO has confirmed human cases of swine flu in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Britain, Israel, New Zealand and Spain.
    <o></o>
    Germany and Austria became the latest countries to report infections. Germany reported four cases on Wednesday, Austria one.

    Default The Swine Flu Pandemic – Fact or Fiction?

    Critical Alert: The Swine Flu Pandemic – Fact or Fiction?

    American health officials declared a public health emergency as cases of swine flu were confirmed in the U.S. Health officials across the world fear this could be the leading edge of a global pandemic emerging from Mexico, where seven people are confirmed dead as a result of the new virus.

    On Wednesday April 29th, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its pandemic alert level to five on its six-level threat scale,1 which means they've determined that the virus is capable of human-to-human transmission. The initial outbreaks across North America reveal an infection already traveling at higher velocity than did the last official pandemic strain, the 1968 Hong Kong flu.

    Phase 5 had never been declared since the warning system was introduced in 2005 in response to the avian influenza crisis. Phase 6 means a pandemic is under way.

    Several nations have imposed travel bans, or made plans to quarantine air travelers2 that present symptoms of the swine flu despite the fact that WHO now openly states it is not possible to contain the spread of this infection and recommends mitigation measures, not restricting travel or closing borders.

    Just What is a Pandemic Anyway?

    A pandemic does not necessarily mean what you think it does, it is NOT black-plague carts being hauled through the streets piled high with dead bodies. Nor does it mean flesh eating zombies wandering the streets feeding on the living. All a pandemic means is that a new infectious disease is spreading throughout the world.

    By definition, a "pandemic" is an epidemic that is geographically widespread. Fear-mongers are always careful to add the innuendo that millions of people could and probably will die, as in the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 that killed about 20 million people worldwide.
    How does the death of even a few hundred equate to 20 million?




    Much Fear Mongering Being Promoted


    I suspect you have likely been alarmed by the media's coverage of the swine flu scare. It has a noticeable subplot - preparing you for draconian measures to combat a future pandemic as well as forcing you to accept the idea of mandatory vaccinations.

    On April 27, Time magazine published an article which discusses how dozens died and hundreds were injured from vaccines as a result of the 1976 swine flu fiasco, when the Ford administration attempted to use the infection of soldiers at Fort Dix as a pretext for a mass vaccination of the entire country.

    Despite acknowledging that the 1976 farce was an example of “how not to handle a flu outbreak”, the article still introduces the notion that officials “may soon have to consider whether to institute draconian measures to combat the disease”.

    Fear has become so widespread that Egypt has ordered the slaughter of the country's 300,000 pigs, even though no cases have been reported there.

    Fortunately some respectable journalists recognize this and are seeking to spread a voice of reason to the fear that is being promoted in the majority of the media

    This is NOT the First Swine Flu Panic

    My guess is that you can expect to see a lot of panic over this issue in the near future. But the key is to remain calm -- this isn't the first time the public has been warned about swine flu. The last time was in 1976, right before I entered medical school and I remember it very clearly. It resulted in the massive swine flu vaccine campaign.

    Do you happen to recall the result of this massive campaign?

    Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for 25 deaths.

    However, several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barré Syndrome after they were injected with the swine flu vaccine. Even healthy 20-year-olds ended up as paraplegics.

    And the swine flu pandemic itself? It never materialized.

    More People Died From the Swine Flu Vaccine than Swine Flu!

    It is very difficult to forecast a pandemic, and a rash response can be extremely damaging.

    To put things into perspective, malaria kills 3,000 people EVERY DAY, and it's considered "a health problem"... But of course, there are no fancy vaccines for malaria that can rake in billions of dollars in a short amount of time.

    One Australian news source,3 for example, states that even a mild swine flu epidemic could lead to the deaths of 1.4 million people and would reduce economic growth by nearly $5 trillion dollars.

    Give me a break, if this doesn't sound like the outlandish cries of the pandemic bird-flu I don't know what does. Do you remember when President Bush said two million Americans would die as a result of the bird flu?

    In 2005, in 2006, 2007, and again in 2008, those fears were exposed as little more than a cruel hoax, designed to instill fear, and line the pocketbooks of various individuals and industry. I became so convinced by the evidence AGAINST the possibility of a bird flu pandemic that I wrote a New York Times bestselling book, The Bird Flu Hoax, all about the massive fraud involved with the epidemic that never happened..





    What is the Swine Flu?

    Regular swine flu is a contagious respiratory disease, caused by a type-A influenza virus that affects pigs. The current strain, A(H1N1), is a new variation of an H1N1 virus -- which causes seasonal flu outbreaks in humans -- that also contains genetic material of bird and pig versions of the flu.

    Symptoms include:
    • Fever of more than 100
    • Coughing
    • Runny nose and/or sore throat
    • Joint aches
    • Severe headache
    • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
    • Lethargy
    • Lack of appetite


    Interestingly enough, this version has never before been seen in neither human nor animal, which I will discuss a bit later.

    This does sound bad. But not so fast. There are a few reasons to not rush to conclusions that this is the deadly pandemic we've been told would occur in the near future (as if anyone could predict it without having some sort of inside knowledge).

    Current State of Swine Flu Spread

    As of May 1, 2009, 11 countries have officially reported 363 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection and only ten deaths in the ENTIRE world from this illness. At this time ALL of the deaths are from people born in Mexico.

    Why Mexico? Well overcrowding, poor nutrition and overall poor immunity, all of which are indigenous to Mexico will radically increase your risk of death from almost any infection.

    Interestingly there are no official reports of just who these people are that died. Are they elderly or infirm people, are they already chronically ill? Are they under 5 years old? Or perhaps someone who could just as easily be killed by the common cold or a slip and fall? These are important questions that have not been answered.

    The number of fatalities, and suspected and confirmed cases across the world change depending on the source, so your best bet -- if you want the latest numbers -- is to use Google Maps' Swine Flu Tracker. There is also an experimental version for Mexico.

    But "officially' the most recent numbers according to the World Health Organization's Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response site are:



    *The United States has had 141 confirmed cases, and one death BUT no deaths from US Citizens. On April 29th CNN reported the first swine fatality in the US, however this was actually a child from Mexico that died in Texas.

    It is important to note that nearly all suspected new cases have been reported as mild.

    Personally, I am highly skeptical. It simply doesn't add up to a real pandemic.

    But it does raise serious questions about where this brand new, never before seen virus came from, especially since it cannot be contracted from eating pork products, and has never before been seen in pigs, and contains traits from the bird flu -- and which, so far, only seems to respond to Tamiflu. Are we just that lucky, or... what?

    Your Fear Will Make Some People VERY Rich in Today's Crumbling Economy

    Tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate) is approved for treatment of uncomplicated influenza A and B in children 1 year of age or older. It is also approved for prevention of influenza in people 13 years or older. It’s part of a group of anti-influenza drugs called neuraminidase inhibitors, which work by blocking a viral enzyme that helps the influenza virus to invade cells in your respiratory tract.

    According to the Associated Press at least one financial analyst estimates up to $388 million worth of Tamiflu sales in the near future10 -- and that's without a pandemic outbreak.

    More than half a dozen pharmaceutical companies, including Gilead Sciences Inc., Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and other companies with a stake in flu treatments and detection, have seen a rise in their shares in a matter of days, and will likely see revenue boosts if the swine flu outbreak continues to spread.

    Swine flue is extremely convenient for governments that would have very soon have to dispose of billions of dollars of Tamiflu stock, which they bought to counter avian flu, or H5N1. The US government ordered 20 million doses, costing $2 billion, in October, 2005, and around that time the UK government ordered 14.6 million doses. Tamiflu’s manufacturer, Roche, has confirmed that the shelf life of its anti-viral is three years.

    As soon as Homeland Security declared a health emergency, 25 percent -- about 12 million doses -- of Tamiflu and Relenza treatment courses were released from the nation's stockpile. However, beware that the declaration also allows unapproved tests and drugs to be administered to children. Many health- and government officials are more than willing to take that chance with your life, and the life of your child. But are you?

    Tamiflu Loaded With Side Effects, Including Death and Can Only Reduce Symptoms by 36 Hours at BEST

    Please realize that Tamiflu is NOT a safe drug Serious side effects include convulsions, delirium or delusions, and 14 deaths in children and teens as a result of neuropsychiatric problems and brain infections Japan actually banned Tamiflu for children in 2007.

    Remember, Tamiflu went through some rough times not too long ago, as the dangers of this drug came to light when, in 2007, the FDA finally began investigating some 1,800 adverse event reports related to the drug.
    Additionally common side effects of Tamiflu include:
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Headache
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Cough
    All in all, the very symptoms you're trying to avoid.

    Additionally, Tamiflu has been reported to be ineffective against seasonal flu outbreaks, and may not be sufficient to combat an epidemic or pandemic.

    But making matters worse, some patients with influenza are at HIGHER risk for secondary bacterial infections when on Tamiflu. And secondary bacterial infections, as I mentioned earlier, was likely the REAL cause of the mass fatalities during the 1918 pandemic!

    But here’s the real kicker.

    When Tamiflu is used as directed (twice daily for 5 days) it can ONLY reduce the duration of your influenza symptoms by 1 to 1 ½ days, according to the official data.

    Why on earth would anyone want to take a drug that has a chance of killing you, was banned in Japan, is loaded with side effects that mimic the flu itself, costs over $100, and AT BEST can only provide 36 hours of SYMPTOM relief. Just doesn't make any sense.

    Should You Accept a Flu Vaccine -- Just to be Safe?



    Watch the video above to see ridiculous 1976 commercials promoting Swine Flu shots.

    As stated in the New York Times14 and elsewhere, flu experts have no idea whether the current seasonal flu vaccine would offer any protection whatsoever against this exotic mutant, and it will take months to create a new one.

    But let me tell you, getting vaccinated now would not only offer no protection and potentially cause great harm, it would most likely be loaded with toxic mercury which is used as a preservative in most flu vaccines..
    I've written extensively about the numerous dangers (and ineffectiveness) of flu vaccines, and why I do not recommend them to anyone. So no matter what you hear -- even if it comes from your doctor -- don't get a regular flu shot. They rarely work against seasonal flu...and certainly can't offer protection against a never-before- seen strain.

    Currently, the antiviral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza are the only drugs that appear effective against the (human flu) H1N1 virus, and I strongly believe taking Tamiflu to protect yourself against this new virus could be a serious mistake -- for all the reasons I already mentioned above.

    But in addition to the dangerous side effects of Tamiflu, there is also growing evidence of resistance against the drug. In February, the pre-publication and preliminary findings journal called Nature Precedings published a paper on this concern, stating15:

    The dramatic rise of oseltamivir [Tamiflu] resistance in the H1N1 serotype in the 2007/2008 season and the fixing of H274Y in the 2008/2009 season has raised concerns regarding individuals at risk for seasonal influenza, as well as development of similar resistance in the H5N1 serotype [bird flu].
    Previously, oseltamivir resistance produced changes in H1N1 and H3N2 at multiple positions in treated patients. In contrast, the recently reported resistance involved patients who had not recently taken oseltamivir.

    It's one more reason not to bother with this potentially dangerous drug.
    And, once a specific swine flu drug is created, you can be sure that it has not had the time to be tested in clinical trials to determine safety and effectiveness, which puts us right back where I started this article -- with a potential repeat of the last dangerous swine flu vaccine, which destroyed the lives of hundreds of people.

    Topping the whole mess off, of course, is the fact that if the new vaccine turns out to be a killer, the pharmaceutical companies responsible are immune from lawsuits -- something I've also warned about before on numerous occasions.

    Unfortunately, those prospects won't stop the governments of the world from mandating the vaccine -- a scenario I hope we can all avoid.

    How to Protect Yourself Without Dangerous Drugs and Vaccinations

    For now, my point is that there are always going to be threats of flu pandemics, real or created, and there will always be potentially toxic vaccines that are peddled as the solution. But you can break free of that whole drug-solution trap by following some natural health principles.
    I have not caught a flu in over two decades, and you can avoid it too, without getting vaccinated, by following these simple guidelines, which will keep your immune system in optimal working order so that you're far less likely to acquire the infection to begin with. This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take. I would STRONGLY urge you to have your vitamin D level monitored to confirm your levels are therapeutic at 50-70 ng.ml and done by a reliable vitamin D lab like Lab Corp.

    For those of you in the US we hope to launch a vitamin D testing service through Lab Corp that allows you to have your vitamin D levels checked at your local blood drawing facility, and relatively inexpensively. We hope to offer this service by June 2009.

    If you are coming down with flu like symptoms and have not been on vitamin D you can take doses of 50,000 units a day for three days to treat the acute infection. Some researchers like Dr. Cannell, believe the dose could even be as high as 1000 units per pound of body weight for three days.

    However, most of Dr. Cannell's work was with seasonal and not pandemic flu. If your body has never been exposed to the antigens there is chance that the vitamin D might not work. However the best bet is to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D around 60 ng/ml.

    BUT to keep this in perspective the regular flu, not the swine flu, has killed 13,000 in the US since January. But there is strong support that these types of figures are grossly exaggerated to increase vaccine sales. However, the fact remains that the regular flu at this point in time is FAR more dangerous than the swine flu and were you worried about the regular flu before the media started talking this up?

    ·Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.

    ·Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu. Be sure to check out my article Guide to a Good Night's Sleep for some great tips to help you get quality rest.

    ·Have Effective Tools to Address Stress . We all face some stress every day, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.

    If you feel that stress is taking a toll on your health, consider using an energy psychology tool such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is remarkably effective in relieving stress associated with all kinds of events, from work to family to trauma. You can check out my free, 25-page EFT manual for some guidelines on how to perform EFT.

    ·Exercise. When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads. You can review my exercise guidelines for some great tips on how to get started.

    ·Take a good source of animal based omega-3 fats like Krill Oil. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils that are trans fats and in processed foods as it will seriously damage your immune response.

    ·Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.

    ·Eat Garlic Regularly. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use. However, if you are allergic or don't enjoy garlic it would be best to avoid as it will likely cause more harm than good.
    • Avoid Hospitals and VaccinesIn this particular case, I'd also recommend you stay away from hospitals unless you're having an emergency, as hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to this new bug. Vaccines will not be available for six months at the minimum but when available they will be ineffective and can lead to crippling paralysis like Guillain-Barré Syndrome just as it did in the 70s.
    Factory Farming Maybe Source of Swine Flu

    Another theory as to the cause of Swine Flu might be factory farming. In the United States, pigs travel coast to coast. They can be bred in North Carolina, fattened in the corn belt of Iowa, and slaughtered in California.
    While this may reduce short-term costs for the pork industry, the highly contagious nature of diseases like influenza (perhaps made further infectious by the stresses of transport) needs to be considered when calculating the true cost of long-distance live animal transport.

    The majority of U.S. pig farms now confine more than 5,000 animals each. With a group of 5,000 animals, if a novel virus shows up it will have more opportunity to replicate and potentially spread than in a group of 100 pigs on a small farm.

    With massive concentrations of farm animals within which to mutate, these new swine flu viruses in North America seem to be on an evolutionary fast track, jumping and reassorting between species at an unprecedented rate.

    Why a True Bird- or Swine Flu Pandemic is HIGHLY Unlikely

    While in my opinion it is highly likely factory farming is responsible for producing this viral strain, I believe there is still no cause for concern.
    You may not know this, but all H1N1 flu's are descendants of the 1918 pandemic strain. The reason why the flu shot may or may not work, however, from year to year, is due to mutations. Therefore, there's no vaccine available for this current hybrid flu strain, and naturally, this is feeding the fear that millions of people will die before a vaccine can be made.

    However, let me remind you of one very important fact here.
    Just a couple of months ago, scientists concluded that the 1918 flu pandemic that killed between 50-100 million people worldwide in a matter of 18 months -- which all these worst case scenarios are built upon -- was NOT due to the flu itself!4

    Instead, they discovered the real culprit was strep infections.
    People with influenza often get what is known as a "superinfection" with a bacterial agent. In 1918 it appears to have been Streptococcus pneumoniae.

    Since strep is much easier to treat than the flu using modern medicine, a new pandemic would likely be much less dire than it was in the early 20th century, the researchers concluded.

    Others, such as evolutionary biologist Paul Ewald,5 claim that a pandemic of this sort simply cannot happen, because in order for it to occur, the world has to change. Not the virus itself, but the world.

    In a previous interview for Esquire magazine, in which he discusses the possibility of a bird flu pandemic, he states:

    "They think that if a virus mutates, it's an evolutionary event. Well, the virus is mutating because that is what viruses and other pathogens do. But evolution is not just random mutation. It is random mutation coupled with natural selection; it is a battle for competitive advantage among different strains generated by random mutation.

    For bird flu to evolve into a human pandemic, the strain that finds a home in humanity has to be a strain that is both highly virulent and highly transmissible. Deadliness has to translate somehow into popularity; H5N1 has to find a way to kill or immobilize its human hosts, and still find other hosts to infect. Usually that doesn't happen."

    Ewald goes on to explain that evolution in general is all about trade-offs, and in the evolution of infections the trade-off is between virulence and transmissibility.

    What this means is that in order for a "bird flu" or "swine flu" to turn into a human pandemic, it has to find an environment that favors both deadly virulence and ease of transmission.

    People living in squalor on the Western Front at the end of World War I generated such an environment, from which the epidemic of 1918 could arise.

    Likewise, crowded chicken farms, slaughterhouses, and jam-packed markets of eastern Asia provide another such environment, and that environment gave rise to the bird flu -- a pathogen that both kills and spreads, in birds, but not in humans.

    Says Ewald:

    "We know that H5N1 is well adapted to birds. We also know that it has a hard time becoming a virus that can move from person to person. It has a hard time without our doing anything. But we can make it harder. We can make sure it has no human population in which to evolve transmissibility. There is no need to rely on the mass extermination of chickens. There is no need to stockpile vaccines for everyone.

    By vaccinating just the people most at risk -- the people who work with chickens and the caregivers -- we can prevent it from becoming transmissible among humans. Then it doesn't matter what it does in chickens."

    Please remember that, despite the fantastic headlines and projections of MILLIONS of deaths, the H5N1 bird flu virus killed a mere 257 people worldwide since late 2003. As unfortunate as those deaths are, 257 deaths worldwide from any disease, over the course of five years, simply does not constitute an emergency worthy of much attention, let alone fear!

    Honestly, your risk of being killed by a lightning strike in the last five years was about 2,300 percent higher than your risk of contracting and dying from the bird flu.6 I'm not kidding! In just one year (2004), more than 1,170 people died from lighting strikes, worldwide.7

    So please, as the numbers of confirmed swine flu cases are released, keep a level head and don't let fear run away with your brains.

    Where did This Mysterious New Animal-Human Flu Strain Come From?

    Alongside the fear-mongering headlines, I've also seen increasing numbers of reports questioning the true nature of this virus. And rightfully so.

    Could a mixed animal-human mutant like this occur naturally? And if not, who made it, and how was it released?

    Not one to dabble too deep in conspiracy theories, I don't have to strain very hard to find actual facts to support the notion that this may not be a natural mutation, and that those who stand to gain have the wherewithal to pull off such a stunt.

    Just last month I reported on the story that the American pharmaceutical company Baxter was under investigation for distributing the deadly avian flu virus to 18 different countries as part of a seasonal flu vaccine shipment. Czech reporters were probing to see if it may have been part of a deliberate attempt to start a pandemic; as such a "mistake" would be virtually impossible under the security protocols of that virus.

    The H5N1 virus on its own is not very airborne. However, when combined with seasonal flu viruses, which are more easily spread, the effect could be a potent, airborne, deadly, biological weapon. If this batch of live bird flu and seasonal flu viruses had reached the public, it could have resulted in dire consequences.

    There is a name for this mixing of viruses; it's called "reassortment," and it is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created in the lab. Some scientists say the most recent global outbreak -- the 1977 Russian flu -- was started by a virus created and leaked from a laboratory.

    Another example of the less sterling integrity of Big Pharma is the case of Bayer, who sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, even though they knew it was tainted with the AIDS virus.
    So while it is morally unthinkable that a drug company would knowingly contaminate flu vaccines with a deadly flu virus such as the bird- or swine flu, it is certainly not impossible. It has already happened more than once.
    But there seems to be no repercussions or hard feelings when industry oversteps the boundaries of morality and integrity and enters the arena of obscenity. Because, lo and behold, which company has been chosen to head up efforts, along with WHO, to produce a vaccine against the Mexican swine flu?

    Baxter!11 Despite the fact that ink has barely dried on the investigative reports from their should-be-criminal "mistake" against humanity.

    According to other sources,12 a top scientist for the United Nations, who has examined the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa, as well as HIV/AIDS victims, has concluded that the current swine flu virus possesses certain transmission "vectors" that suggest the new strain has been genetically-manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon.

    The UN expert believes that Ebola, HIV/AIDS, and the current A-H1N1 swine flu virus are biological warfare agents.

    In addition, Army criminal investigators are looking into the possibility that disease samples are missing from biolabs at Fort Detrick -- the same Army research lab from which the 2001 anthrax strain was released, according to a recent article in the Fredrick News Post.13 In February, the top biodefense lab halted all its research into Ebola, anthrax, plague, and other diseases known as "select agents," after they discovered virus samples that weren't listed in its inventory and might have been switched with something else.

    This strain of swine influenza thats been cultured in a laboratory is something thats not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world, so this is actually a new strain of influenza thats been identified, said Dr. John Carlo, Dallas Co. Medical Director

    Swine flu panic is spreading in Mexico and soldiers are patrolling the streets after it was confirmed that human to human transmission is occurring and that the virus is a brand new strain which is seemingly affecting young, healthy people the worst. Questions about the source of the outbreak are also being asked after a public health official said that the virus was cultured in a laboratory.

    As a primary example, consider the CIAs secret war against Cuba and Fidel Castro. The CIA used chemical agents and toxins then stockpiled at Fort Detrick against Cuba and Fidel Castro.

    In 1975, the Church Committee revealed a CIA memorandum listing deadly chemical agents and toxins then stockpiled at Fort Detrick. These included anthrax, encephalitis, tuberculosis, lethal snake venom, shellfish toxin, and half a dozen lethal food poisons, some of which, the committee learned, had been shipped in the early 1960s to Congo and to Cuba in unsuccessful CIA attempts to assassinate Patrice Lumumba and Fidel Castro, write Ellen Ray and William H.

    Default Flu drugs inappropriate for healthy adults

    Flu drugs inappropriate for healthy adults: study
    <o>
    <o>Sat Aug 22, 2009
    <o>
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The flu drugs Tamiflu and Relenza may not be worthwhile to treat seasonal influenza in healthy adults, British researchers reported on Friday.

    <o>"Recommending the use of antiviral drugs for the treatment of people presenting with symptoms is unlikely to be the most appropriate course of action," wrote Jane Burch of the University of York and colleagues.

    <o>Their study, published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases, supports an advisory from the World Health Organization that says healthy patients who get H1N1swine flu without suffering complications do not need to be treated with antivirals.

    <o>Tamiflu, made by Switzerland's Roche under license from Gilead Sciences Inc., is a pill that can both treat and prevent influenza A viruses of all kinds. Zanamivir, made by GlaxoSmithKline under license from Australia's Biota and sold under the brand name Relenza, is an inhaled drug in the same class.

    <o>WHO strongly recommends both drugs for pregnant women, patients with underlying medical conditions and children under 5, as they are at increased risk of more severe illness.

    <o>Burch's team reviewed many different published studies on Tamiflu and Relenza. "We present the results for healthy adults and people at-risk of influenza-related complications," they wrote.

    <o>Both drugs shaved about half a day, on average, off the time patients were ill, they found. Influenza usually affects people for about a week.

    <o>The drugs worked a little better in people who have a high risk of complications, such as patients with diabetes or asthma, with Relenza cutting sickness by almost a day and Tamiflu by three-quarters of a day, on average.

    <o>This suggests the drugs should be reserved for people who need them the most, the researchers concluded.

    <o>Many countries have stockpiled both drugs. H1N1 swine flu has been declared a pandemic and is circulating globally. U.S. health officials said on Friday it was worsening in Japan, getting better in Britain and was still widely active in the United States.

    <o>Flu is rare in all three countries in August.

    <o>Global manufacturers do not expect to have vaccines ready until the end of September or October at the soonest.<o>

    Default Children given Swine flu vaccine 'hit by sudden sleep syndrome'

    New concerns over swine flu jab after children given it 'hit by sudden sleep syndrome'

    By Jo Macfarlane - 23rd April 2011

    A swine flu vaccine which has been given to thousands of children in Britain may cause the sleep disorder narcolepsy.

    Symptoms include excessive daytime sleepiness and nodding off suddenly without warning.

    All packets of the vaccine Pandemrix will have to carry a warning about the risk following a ruling by the EU regulator, the European Medicines Agency (EMA).


    The EMA, which is currently investigating the effects of the vaccine, has also told doctors to weigh up the potential risks before injecting children against the deadly H1N1 virus.

    There have been seven reported cases of narcolepsy in the UK linked to the GlaxoSmithKline vaccine – four of them children.

    The condition can also cause temporary muscle paralysis, hallucinations and problems concentrating.

    Caroline Hadfield, of Frome, Somerset, believes her five-year-old son Joshua contracted narcolepsy after being vaccinated with Pandemrix last January.

    Within weeks of having the jab, Joshua began sleeping 18 hours a day and Mrs Hadfield says his personality completely changed.

    Mrs Hadfield, 40, said: ‘I believe this link will eventually be confirmed. I’m very angry about it.

    I researched the vaccine carefully before agreeing to let Joshua have it and thought I was protecting him. Now he’s saddled with this for life.

    ‘There should have been more testing before it was rolled out and it should have been destroyed at the first suggestion of any problems.’

    Pandemrix is the main vaccine used in this country to protect against H1N1. It was introduced in the swine flu pandemic of 2009. It has been given to six million people and the Government recommended all children under the age of five should have the immunisation during the initial outbreak.

    Pandemrix is still being used as the virus remains in circulation, and doses from the Government’s stockpile were rolled out this winter after supplies of the seasonal flu vaccine ran low.

    Children were not included in the list of at-risk groups who automatically received the vaccine during the 2010/11 winter, but many parents elected to pay privately for their youngsters to have the vaccine because of a large number of severe swine flu cases in under-fives.

    Narcolepsy is a rare condition which affects just 30,000 people in the UK, including 400 children.

    The EMA investigation was launched in August last year after a surge in cases of narcolepsy on the Continent following swine flu vaccination campaigns. In France,
    25 cases were reported, including 11 in children under the age of 16.

    Experts in Finland revealed last month that children who had the vaccination were nine times more likely to develop narcolepsy.

    And in Sweden research found the risk was four times greater.

    The same effect has not been witnessed in adults given the injection.

    The EMA has now ruled that leaflets in Pandemrix boxes must include the words: ‘Preliminary reports from epidemiological studies in two countries have indicated a four to nine-fold increase of narcolepsy in vaccinated as compared with unvaccinated children and adolescents – corresponding to an absolute risk increase of about three to four additional cases in 100,000 vaccinated subjects.’

    The label updates are intended as an ‘interim measure’ until the investigation is completed in July, the EMA said.

    A spokesman for GlaxoSmithKline said 247 cases of narcolepsy had been reported worldwide.

    He added: ‘Further information must be gathered on a potential likelihood of a causal relationship between Pandemrix and narcolepsy before any conclusions can be drawn. GSK is committed to patient safety.’

    A Department of Health spokeswoman said: ‘Flu vaccines have an excellent safety record.’
