What to really think about the Swine Flu!


Unless you are hiding under a rock or living in the wilderness without contact with anybody and therefore, clearly not reading this, it’s highly unlikely that you haven’t been subject to the next fear mongering pandemic called SWINE FLU sweeping across the nation and the world.  It’s inescapable; even as hard as I may try to not listen to the talk, the news and what not, I can’t seem to get away from this imminent ‘death threat’ lurking just south of the border. 

After the 20 plus emails I got with urgent headings informing me of the Swine Flu and how to protect myself from it or just to instill a little fear in me, I recieved the above picture from a friend, with the caption…. “Don’t do this”.  I had to laugh as we are so vulnerable to the fear that the media creates and we forget the real facts.  Which is why you should DEFINITELY read this article by Dr. Mercola to clear up some of the propoganda…  Critical Alert: The Swine Flu Pandemic – Fact or Fiction?

It’s really worth a look, it’s a little on the long side, but even if you don’t have time to read the whole thing, just look over the highlighted topics… it’s a little more realistic take on the actual state of our nation in regards to this pandemic.  Some interesting topics…

What is a Pandemic?

“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.Who is dying?”   Click here to read more

Should I get a vaccine? **you’ll be surprised to read that the possibility of death is probably higher from the vaccine than the actual flu**

Interestingly enough… this is not the first Swine Flu “The last time was in 1976”

Who is dying?

“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.”

Who is benefitting from a pandemic oubreak?

“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. “

So, while I encourage you to get all the information you can summon up before you make any rash decisions, I strongly suggest reading this article… the above snippets, are merely just that and they are taken out of context, but they are thoughts worth pondering!

Tamiflu & Flu Vaccines…

Of special importance is the section on the flu vaccine and tamiflu… he has a whole bunch of well backed up evidence informing you of the pros and cons (but mostly cons) of taking flu medicines and getting a vaccine… Wouldn’t you rather know what you’re getting yourself into before you just take somebodies word for it?

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

“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.”

Just be smart and protect yourself!

Be smart and keep yourself in optimal health; you can do this by simply washing your hands, eating well, staying away from sugar and processed foods, get your vitamins, eat lots of garlic and if you feel tired… sleep!  And… most obviously keep your distance from sick people… it’s the number one way to contract an illness…  and last but certainly not least, try to resist kissing any pigs in the meanwhile!

Here’s to your health and wellbeing!
