  1. Swine flu and volcanic ash

    Leave a Comment

    Here I go again being slightly controversial. I’ve been looking at some reader feedback to articles on swine flu and the volcanic ash scenario – all in the broadsheets I might add. It’s interesting what people think and write. Many are cynical about swine flu – it’s set to return this autumn and this has made people question whether a) it’s about getting rid of all the unused vaccines sitting going to waste, or b) is it being used as a method of population control (yes I did write that) or c) GSK and the government have our best interests at heart. There are people that think the vaccine has some seriously nasty stuff in it, which will slowly break down your immune system, and I’m not just talking about mercury. But as I said these are not my thoughts but the British general public. The H1N1 vaccination certainly divided us into those who took it without question and those who’d quite frankly prefer to tightrope walk across the Niagra falls with a small pony on their back.

    The volcanic ash situation is similar, so called “experts” are divided as to whether all these flights actually needed to be cancelled or was it used as another way to assess Britain’s security when no one could come in and out of the UK for a while. Again these are not my personal thoughts, just thought you folk out there who read my blog would like to know how some of the population are exercising their freedom of speech!

    For those  asking for some harder hitting news on the swine flu fiasco – he’s what Mike Adams of NaturalNews has to say. (These are US stats by the way!):

     The great swine flu hoax of 2009 is now falling apart at the seams as one country after another unloads hundreds of millions of doses of unused swine flu vaccines. No informed person wants the injection anymore, and the entire fear-based campaign to promote the vaccines has now been exposed as outright quackery and propaganda.

    Even doctors are now calling the pandemic a complete hoax. As reported on FoxNews, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a leading health authority in Europe, says that drug companies “organized a ‘campaign of panic’ to put pressure on the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare a pandemic. He believes it is ‘one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century,’ and he has called for an inquiry.” (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933…)

    H1N1  swine flu was never dangerous, and it never should have been escalated to a level-six pandemic in the first place. It was all a big marketing scam whose purpose was to simply sell vaccines
    And it worked!  Big Pharma made out with billions of dollars in profits for a useless vaccine that’s now being dumped by the truck load. These vaccines were, of course, paid for with taxpayer dollars, making the Great Swine Flu Hoax of 2009 nothing more than an elaborate financial scam whose goal was to transfer wealth from the People to the shareholders of Big Pharma.

    In just the fourth quarter of 2009, GlaxoSmithKline shipped $1.4 billion worth of vaccines. (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUS…)

    That’s $1.4 billion worth of taxpayer dollars, by the way. Dollars that could have been spent on nutrition or real health education. $1.4 billion worth of free vitamin D supplements would have done far more to protect public health than vaccines could ever hope to accomplish.

    I’m writing this blog from my sick bed. I have swine flu. I’ve been well all year but the mad socialising I’ve done in the last few weeks had left me tired and then….. bang… down I went -between 2 and 4pm on sunday i went from well to really sick, really fast.

    I have to tell you its really really awful – at least it is for me, pounding headache and pains so bad in your body you dont want to live, vomiting and high fever. Yesterday afternoon i thought i was dying and called the doctor who reluctantly came out and gloved up. She told me if my temperature went any higher I’d be admitted to hospital. I have to say being on my own i got scared. Last night i found myself on the bathroom floor vomiting and sleeping in turn. I heard strange animal sounds and to my horror realised they were coming from me. When you’re too ill to look after yourself you need someone to tell you what to do. I texted a girlfriend and she said get in a cold bath – which I did. I think this bought my temperature down quite a bit. I’ve lost a stone in two days which is quite worrying.

    I’ve been told to stay off work for five days, which for the first time I will do. Despite all this, I’m in bed this morning, my temperature is normal. I feel shattered and exhausted like a tsunami has powered through my body, but I seem to be on the mend. Luckily my immune system seems to be fighting it off, and no I didnt take tamiflu nor would i have had the vaccine.

    Gulp…. here I go again. Perhaps I should go into politics and leave the nutrition behind! Sometimes they overlap and this is one of those times. People generally fall into three categories with regards this particularly explosive topic – yes please, not on your life, or I don’t really care. Guess which category I’m in! I would rather take my chances with my immune system than have some half tested drug with god knows what in it (conspiracy theorists among you do some googling!). For those who are not going to be injected by your GP who is getting £5.25 bonus for every jab they do, I’d steer clear of crowds if you can, wash your hands as often as can – take a strong multivitamin with a good dose of vitamin D, vitamin C and garlic and trust your immune system to cope with whatever horrors we have to face. If you are undecided do some research, look at the figures, find out what’s happening in the US where the vaccine is now compulsory in one or two states. Just remember where the US leads, we follow on pretty much everything. Politics and controversy over… back to nutrition.
