There are some things to consider about the so called Swine Flu before you even think about getting vaccinated against it. No, this is not something your doctor will discuss with you. In fact, it is likely you will know next to nothing about what is injected into your bloodstream unless you do your own research. I am not telling you not to get vaccinated, I am telling you to educate yourself before you make such a bold decision about your health. I am no doctor and this article is not to be taken as medical advice!
Richard Gale is a former Senior Research Analyst in the biotechnology and genomic industries. He and Dr. Gary Null write about the widespread media tactic of highlighting the 'scarcity' of the vaccine to frighten people into getting vaccinated as soon as a dose is available for them. The fact remains though, swine flu statistics are not facts, they are guesstimates. Since August nobody tests for swine flu anymore, so even if you just have some fever and sniffles you'll be counted into the swine flu bunch! How is that for sound science? The CDC itself only notes estimates on their website, and no matter how accurate a projection model they make - they cannot tell you anything true, as they themselves state that the flu is unpredictable.
Are you familiar with Dr. J. Anthony Morris, the former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist, US FDA? He is not the first to loose his government job because he put his conscience above profits. I'll quote him:
"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway."What we do know though is that in the case of Britain, the health authorities' original worst-case scenario -- which said as many as 65,000 could die from H1N1 -- has twice been revised down and the prediction is now for around 1,000 deaths, way below the average annual toll of 4,000 to 8,000 deaths from seasonal winter flu. Don't you think that an overestimate of 64,000 people is significant?
"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good."
In Europe skepticism about the validity and safety of the H1N1 vaccine abounds and Polish Health Minister Eva Kopacz sums it up well in addressing the Parliament (you will have to keep up with reading the English subtitles):
