Swine flu vaccine causes girl to fall asleep 30 times a day; vaccine pushers still claim ‘zero side effects’

(NaturalNews) The family of a 15-year-old Australian girl is seeking answers after their daughter developed a severe sleeping disorder following vaccination with Pandemrix, the infamous “swine flu” shot pushed during the 2009 “pandemic.” Australia’sNews.com.au reports that Chloe Glasson now falls asleep suddenly and without warning as many as 30 times a day, regardless of what she is doing, the result of a narcoleptic condition that emerged almost immediately after she was jabbed.

One of at least 100 people to develop narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix, young Chloe recently disappeared for several hours while on a short walk to her grandmother’s house. She reportedly went into a state of “dreamlike autopilot,” during which time she wandered around aimlessly before eventually arriving home safely. But this was not before her frightened parents contacted authorities about their missing child.

“[Our daughter’s life] has been devastated after we followed government advice to have her immunized against the threat of swine flu,” explained Chloe’s mother, Rebecca, to News.com.au. “She has gone from being a bright, outgoing girl to one who cannot go out on her own. She doesn’t doze for more than a couple of hours at a time, but she can have disturbing dreams.”

Chloe also has trouble focusing and staying awake in school. Her parents say she often fades off right in the middle of class, a frequent occurrence that is stunting her ability to learn and keep up with her peers. Chloe’s best hope, her parents say, is treatment with a drug known as sodium oxybate, which costs $23,000 per year.

“I am putting a lot of faith in the treatment,” stated Chloe to the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “While the tablets won’t cure me, they may offer the chance of a more normal life.”

Chloe is currently receiving treatment at the U.K.’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh. Her parents are also hoping to receive the maximum compensation from the U.K. government for damages caused by Pandemrix, which was manufactured by U.K.-based GlaxoSmithKline. This amount would be the U.S. equivalent of $220,000.

“We believe that more than 100 people have developed narcolepsy because of the swine flu vaccine,” stated Matt O’Neill from Narcolepsy U.K., a British charity.

Thousands of children likely damaged by swine flu vaccine fraud

Data released by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) not long after the widespread distribution of Pandemrix, however, reveals the number of affected children to be far higher. As we reported earlier this year, an EMA report found that at least 800 children developed narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix.

Similarly, data compiled by the Helsinki Sleep Clinic in Finland revealed that Pandemrix was associated with an astounding 1,700 percent increase in narcolepsy among children and teenagers under the age of 17. At 5.3 children per 100,000 affected by the vaccine, based on the figures, potentially thousands of children across Europe now have sleeping disorders as a result of being jabbed with Pandemrix.

“The increased risk of narcolepsy after vaccination with ASO3 adjuvanted pandemic A/H1N1 2009 vaccine indicates a causal association, consistent with findings from Finland,” reads the conclusion of a study on Pandemrix and sleep disorders that was published in the British Medical Journal earlier this year.

As for Chloe and the hundreds of other children damaged by Pandemrix, the fact that narcolepsy is a nerve damage-related disease further illustrates the neurotoxic effects of vaccines — effects that, despite being denied by health authorities as even existing, are very real to those who end up suffering from them.

Report: Girl Falls Asleep Up To 30 Times A Day After Getting Flu Shot

EDINBURGH, U.K. (CBS Atlanta) — A 15-year-old girl is reportedly falling asleep up to 30 times a day after getting a flu shot.

Australia’s News Limited reports Chloe Glasson began suffering from narcolepsy four months after being injected with Pandemrix, a vaccine to combat against swine flu, in November 2009. She is one of at least 100 people to suffer from the sleeping disorder after getting vaccinated with Pandemrix.

“She has gone from being a bright, outgoing girl to one who cannot go out on her own,” Rebecca Glasson, Chloe’s mother, told News Limited. “She doesn’t doze for more than a couple of hours at a time, but she can have disturbing dreams.”

Chloe Glasson will begin a new treatment of the specialist drug sodium oxybate at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, U.K., in hopes to get back to a normal sleeping pattern.

“I am putting a lot of faith in the treatment,” Chloe told News Limited. “While the tablets won’t cure me, they may offer the chance of a more normal life.”

GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer behind Pandemrix, said in a statement they are researching how narcolepsy is reportedly triggered for some by the drug.

“Patient safety is our number one priority and we are researching how narcolepsy is triggered and how this vaccine might have interacted with other risk factors in affected individuals,” they told News Limited in a statement. “We hope ongoing research efforts will enable us to provide more answers.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends flu vaccinations for Americans older than 6 months.

Oral cholera vaccine loaded with GMOs to be tested on babies worldwide

(NaturalNews) California-based vaccine manufacturer PaxVax has reportedly submitted an application to begin international trials of a novel oral cholera vaccine that contains live, genetically modified (GM) bacteria. VacTruth.com reports that the new vaccine is set to be tested on more than 1,000 individuals, many of whom are young children, in a three-part clinical trial series to take place throughout Australia.

In a recent application filing with the Australian Government, PaxVax makes plain its intent to administer the live, GM bacteria in both young and old and in every region of the country. Participants will be instructed to literally consume a cocktail of mercury-resistant, GM Shigella flexneri NR1 bacteria derived from the Vibrio cholera bacterial strain, which is recognized as the causative agent of the gastroenteritis disease known as cholera.

According to the filing, the GM cholera strain used in the vaccine has essentially been artificially neutralized to prevent the toxic molecules that would otherwise cause the disease from being produced. The non-active B-subunit of the cholera toxin molecule, in other words, is reportedly still synthesized in the bacteria, but it allegedly no longer holds the capacity to induce either disease or toxicity.

“Multiple steps were required to produce the genetic modifications found in the GMO,” explains the filing.

“Fragments of the Cholera toxin A subunit and haemolysin A genes were cloned into separate plasmids. The gene fragments were then modified in vitro by the deletion of part of the toxin gene and by the insertion of the mer operon. The plasmids were transferred into the V. cholerae, one at a time, and the genetic modifications were incorporated into the bacterial genome by recombination.”

Oral cholera vaccine developed using brain-damaging mercury

To some, this might all sound like positive progress in the eradication of a disease that infects as many as 5 million people around the world annually, among which about 100,000 end up dying. But to those who have been paying attention to recent developments on the GMO front, feeding children and adults untested transgenic bacteria could become a surefire recipe for a public health disaster.

“According to PaxVax’s application for their proposed clinical trial, ‘There have been no credible reports of adverse effects on human health and safety or the environment resulting from any of these releases,'” writes Missy Fluegge for VacTruth.com. “That is pharma-speak for ‘there have been no credible studies to assess the safety and efficacy of this vaccine.'”

This is true of all GMOs currently on the market, none of which have gone through rigorous, long-term safety testing prior to their approval. Nobody knows for sure how these synthetic substances will alter the human genome, especially later on in life, potentially leading to permanent and undesirable changes in human cells, tissue and even DNA.

Then, there is the issue of the new PaxVax oral cholera vaccine having been programmed to grow in the presence of mercury, a known neurotoxin that is still being intentionally added to injectable vaccines. Based on its design, the new vaccine more than likely contains added mercury, which means that it threatens to permanently damage the brains and gastrointestinal tracts of those who end up consuming it.

“If traditional bacteria can’t even grow well in mercury, do you think it is healthy for our children to have mercury in their bodies?” asks Fluegge. “Do our children need another mercury-laden vaccine?”

Pregnant nurse fired after refusing flu shot due to miscarriage fears

A pregnant Pennsylvania nurse has been fired from her job with a health care company after she refused to get a flu shot because she was afraid of miscarrying.

Dreonna Breton was terminated from her job at Horizons Healthcare Services Dec. 17 after she did not comply with a company mandate that requires all employees to receive the influenza vaccine.

The 29-year-old tells WGAL  she has suffered two miscarriages this year, and was worried the vaccine may not be safe for pregnant women.

Breton, who also has a toddler son, says she offered to wear a mask at work as a possible alternative solution.

“I want to give this baby the best shot that I can,” she told WGAL. “There are just things in the flu vaccine that are not known, like how it affects my growing baby.”

Breton’s nurse midwife also wrote a letter to her employer asking Breton be exempt from the shot, but the company denied her request.

Company spokesman Alan Peterson says it’s unconscionable for a health care worker not to be immunized, and pregnant women are more susceptible to the flu.

However, Breton says she stands by her decision.

“I do believe I did the right thing, and the right outcome will happen,” she told WGAL.

Federal officials say the flu causes about 200,000 hospitalizations annually.

Australian Telegraph newspaper endorses medical child abuse: Unvaccinated children should be raised as outcasts

vaccinesBANNER

(NaturalNews) In a new low for even the mainstream media, the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph newspapers in Australia are pushing a campaign of outright medical child abuse they call “NO JAB NO PLAY.” The campaign demands that unvaccinated children be barred from all social contact with other children and condemned to the life of a social outcast where parents are presumably supposed to raise them in cages in dark basements. The paper has launched its horrific, anti-human-rights campaign, “NO JAB NO PLAY” that demands children who are not vaccinated with state-mandated chemicals (which include mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum and other toxins) be denied interaction with other children.

I’m not making this up. The paper, which seems to be run by a band of human rights haters and child abuse proponents, all but admits wanting to turn children into anti-social monsters and psychological criminals — just one of the side effects of forcing children to be raised without healthy social interaction with other children. This is the first time in history that an Australian newspaper has directly called for the medical abuse of children — and seem to be happy about doing so! Is their editor the ghost of Jimmy Saville from the UK?

It’s a new low for even the Telegraph. Click here to see the campaign push by the newspaper.

See the image of the paper’s “No Jab No Play” campaign on the right. This is the actual image taken from the paper’s editorial page where they are pushing this idea of socially condemning all children whose parents do not submit to state-sponsored medical terrorism.

Telegraph caught with huge conflict of interest, taking money from vaccine manufacturers

Oh, and by the way: The Telegraph takes money from vaccine manufacturers while pushing their editorial agenda. Yet it never discloses this in its medical child abuse campaign for mandatory vaccinations. What we have here is a clear conflict of interest with the paper now being caught with its hand in the cookie jar of Big Pharma cash flow.

Here’s one full-page ad the paper ran for Pfizer, a globally-known vaccine manufacturer. There are hundreds more examples of ads from vaccine companies who are financially supporting The Telegraph and essentially paying the salaries of its staff.

Are the Telegraph’s editors vaccine-damaged or just scientifically illiterate?

To justify this medical child abuse against children, the Telegraph engages in an astonishing display of junk science logic that demonstrates the complete illiteracy of the paper’s editors. It says, “Most parents are rightfully fed up with those who put other people’s children at risk.”

So let’s examine that with actual scientific reasoning, shall we? (Something with which the Telegraph is entirely unfamiliar.)

This statement asserts that there are two groups of children: 1) Children who are vaccinated and therefore “protected” from infectious disease, and 2) Children who are unvaccinated and therefore “carriers” of infectious disease and a threat to others.

It further asserts that children from group 2 (“carriers”) can somehow infect children from group 1 (“vaccinated”).

But hold on a second. Wasn’t group 1 (“vaccinated”) supposed to be immune to the disease precisely because they were already vaccinated?

If vaccinations work, then a vaccinated child should be able to strut through even the most snot-nosed, coughing, sneezing, sick group of other children and have no concern whatsoever for catching any disease, right? The vaccine offers them 100% protection, doesn’t it? So why would vaccinated children need to fear unvaccinated carriers?

Here is where the entire myth of vaccination falls completely apart — and where the editors of the Telegraph show just why they are so easily discredited on issues requiring actual scientific reasoning. Vaccines do NOT offer 100% protection. In fact, if you look hard at the numbers for things like flu vaccines, it turns out that vaccines offer, at best, about a 1% protection effect. Flu shots, in other words, are worthless on about 99% of the children who receive them.

Even worse, flu shots always contain neurologically-damaging chemicals, so they risk harm to children’s brains. The flu shot manufacturers could, if they chose, produce “clean” flu shots without methylmercury (a potent brain poison), formaldehyde, aluminum or other adjuvant chemicals, but they choose not to. Thus, every flu shot administered to your child is like playing Russian Roulette with your child’s brain. Sometimes the result is disastrous and the child goes into a seizure. When they emerge from the seizure hours later, they are suddenly autistic, now a victim of permanent brain damage caused by vaccines.

The Telegraph doesn’t seem to mind this idea, however. After all, the paper wants unvaccinated children to be medically abused and live like anti-social monsters, growing up in total isolation and suffering immense developmental harm as a result. It’s no surprise the paper’s editors also don’t mind the fact that what they are pushing causes provable brain damage to children, turning healthy young boys and girls into screaming, moaning, lobotomized human beings who will require a lifetime of social support to keep alive and functioning in society. That’s a good thing, according to the Telegraph. The more lobotomies, the better! After all, somebody’s gotta be left behind with a low enough IQ to subscribe to the paper.

Now, to understand this even further, the real truth about all this is that vaccines weaken the immune system against future infections, and it’s all the non-vaccinated children who are statistically far more naturally immune from infection. Take a sample of 100 sick children anywhere in Australia, and you’ll find that the ones who have the most severe symptoms are the ones who were vaccinated. Every measles outbreak happens among children who were vaccinated against the measles. Flu outbreaks are carried and spread primarily by children who receive flu shots! This is the “inconvenient truth” the vaccine-pushing medical establishment doesn’t want you to know.

In truth, it’s the vaccinated children who are the risky “carriers” of disease, threatening the non-vaccinated children!

Vaccinations are now a weapon against children

But the real upshot of all this is that the Telegraph is now the first newspaper in the world to recommend that vaccines be used as an anti-human-rights weapon against children. By saying no to vaccines as an informed, scientifically literate parent, you might soon be condemning your child to the life of a social outcast… a psychologically-imbalanced misfit. This is medical child abuse at its worst, and it’s openly endorsed by the Australian media.

This no doubt pleases the Telegraph in the same way that destroying the planet Alderaan might please the Grand Moff Tarkin from the Star Wars universe. What’s a few billion lives lost compared to the raw power of total control over the lives of other humans, after all? Medical choice is a terrible, terrible thing, and parents must be denied any choice whatsoever… at gunpoint, if necessary, for their own good!

This is the logic of The Telegraph, a disgusting, anti-human rights, anti-children rag of vaccine quackery and cognitively impaired writers who most likely are vaccine damaged themselves. Perhaps that’s their wish: to pay forward the “gift” of vaccine lobotomization to the next generation of children so that yet more Australians can grow up with sufficient brain damage to actually work for the Telegraph.

I’m just curious what’s next for the Telegraph. Is this “NO JAB NO PLAY” campaign doesn’t fly, will they up their game and recommend that all unvaccinated children be sexually molested, too? What are the limits to the degree of child abuse the Telegraph thinks is justifiable to make sure little children are penetrated with deadly chemical injections? “Sick” doesn’t even begin to describe what’s going on at the Telegraph.

These people are bordering on criminally insane, and if any state-sponsored action is to be taken in all this, I would recommend a police investigation of the Telegraph editors to make sure they aren’t abusing their own children in some sick way in their own homes. They obviously think there’s nothing wrong with abusing children in order to accomplish their goals. Might they also be abusing their own?

Feeding sugar to babies before vaccinations reduces crying, say quacks

baby1s

(NaturalNews) Administering vaccinations to babies is often a source of never-ending frustration for the common quack. Babies dislike having their skin pierced with metal needles, it seems, and their ensuing screaming and thrashing often hinder the procedure. This insolent non-compliance to Big Pharma’s will has prompted several medical researchers to seek out ways to pacify babies before the painful jab. Their latest stroke of genius? Feeding them solutions comprised mostly of sugar – one of the most toxic substances we can put in our bodies.

Sugar before vaccines: Poison before poison

According to a Cochrane Review of 14 studies pertaining to the pain-killing qualities of sugar, babies that are fed sugar solutions prior to receiving an injection cry less than those that drink water. Most of the studies reviewed, including the well-known 2010 study for The Lancet that assessed the use of oral sucrose as analgesic drug for pain in infants, used the infants’ length of crying as a measure of pain. However, some studies – such as those that gave infants sugar-coated pacifiers throughout the vaccination procedure – chose to monitor their facial reactions.

“Giving babies something sweet to taste before injections may stop them from crying for as long,” concluded Dr. Manal Kassab, the review’s lead researcher. “Although we can’t confidently say that sugary solutions reduce needle pain, these results do look promising.”

Despite the Cochrane Review‘s conclusion, feeding infants sugar solutions before vaccinating them is not yet a routine practice among allopaths.

“Generally, doctors recommend that the mother holds the baby and comforts it while they have their immunization. If she is breastfeeding still, she might want to breastfeed her baby at the same time,” said Dr. David Elliman, a researcher at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. “With older children we try to distract them. If you do the usual holding and comforting, I’m not sure how much sucrose would add.”

It is now common for a child to have experienced at least 10 different injections by its second birthday, including immunizations for mumps, measles, and rubella. Such jabs have been linked to innumerable health conditions, including RSV, MMF, and autism.

“Police State” Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status

Word from the Blogginghounds: Vaccines are Not Safe! They Kill.

vaccine-danger

The Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information into a database. [1] This effort has been run in parallel with state vaccine registry implementations.

What is the intention of such programs?

My colleague Leslie Manookian, writer and director of the movie The Greater Good, wrote in a recent article, the “CDC has openly stated that vaccine registries are a tool to identify areas of ‘undervaccination’ so that they can be ‘addressed’ and brought into ‘compliance.’” [2]

I would also add to Leslie’s statement that since the government purchases a large bulk of the vaccines (for example, the Vaccines for Children program), it is in their financial interest to make sure vaccines are consumed regularly.

If you exempt your child from being vaccinated, your refusal is also being tracked and put into the database. If you want to know why this is a big deal, read on.

But first, what does tracking every vaccine you or your children have ever been injected with look like?

Big Plans for You

I want to make this very real for you.

The government collects information on who vaccinates their children and who does not. They know how many children have had their vaccines. They also know how many children have opted out of being vaccinated. They have the data.

The government has big plans and the most outrageous part about this entire scheme is you don’t have a choice – your data is entered. In order to accomplish this task we have to answer 3 basic questions.

1. What data is being tracked?

2. Who has access to the tracked data?

3. What will be done with this data?

Let’s start with the first question of what is being tracked.

Question #1: What Data is Being Tracked?

You’ll be surprised at how much data is being tracked. Some of the data is required while other data sets are optional. Rest assured, what is optional today can become required in short order.

According to the Immunization Information System Functional Standards, 2013 – 2017, the following information will be in their databases: [3]

  • REQUIRED: Patient name: first, middle, last
  • Optional: Patient alias name: first, middle, last
  • Optional: Patient address, phone number
  • Optional: Birthing facility
  • Optional: Patient Social Security number (SSN)
  • REQUIRED: Patient birth date
  • REQUIRED: Patient sex
  • REQUIRED: Patient race
  • REQUIRED: Patient ethnicity
  • Optional: Patient Primary language
  • REQUIRED: Patient birth order
  • Optional: Patient birth registration number
  • REQUIRED: Patient birth State/country
  • Optional: Patient Medicaid number Optional
  • REQUIRED: Mother’s name: First, middle, last, maiden
  • Optional: Mother’s SSN
  • Optional: Father’s name: first, middle, last
  • Optional: Father’s SSN
  • REQUIRED: Vaccine Type
  • REQUIRED: Vaccine Manufacturer
  • Optional: Vaccine dose number
  • Optional: Vaccine expiration date
  • Optional: Vaccine injection site
  • REQUIRED: Vaccination date
  • REQUIRED: Vaccine lot number
  • Optional: Vaccine provider

Do you trust anyone with your personal information? This leads us to the next question …

Question #2: Who Has Access to the Tracked Data?

This is where the language should have you a little concerned because it is extremely vague.

According to the Immunization Information System documentation, data can be provided to “healthcare providers, public health, and other authorized stakeholders.”

It goes on to say schools, child care, and child camps may also have access to the records.

One of the major areas the lawmakers neglected to mention was the power granted to your employer. Consider the fact this past year nurses were actually being fired for not having their flu shot, as reported by Natural News. [4] Imagine if the proper pressure were applied to businesses to meet a government mandate. They would be given access to these records. It’s something for you to chew on.

That brings us to our last question…


  • 7523

vaccine

Question #3: What Will Be Done with This Data?

The Centers for Disease Control’s goal is to get 95% or greater vaccine compliance. How is this accomplished?

In the short term, if your child is not vaccinated or is behind schedule, expect phone calls, emails, and personal visits from local health authorities. One function of the CDC’s Immunization Information System is to “forecast” vaccines due, past due, or coming due.

When these tactics don’t work or are ignored, expect more a more confrontational strategy. Keep in mind what happened on Christmas Eve 2009.

The U.S. Senate passed H.R. 3590. The bill eventually became Public Law No. 111-148, which gives the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorization to create “vaccination squads” in local communities and seek out unvaccinated children. The “vaccine squads” are called the Community Preventive Services Task Force. [5]

Not only will the Task Force be working with the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, but on page 1202 of that law, the most relevant responsibilities are listed as:

“(D) carrying out immunization-promoting strategies for participants or clients of public programs, including assessments of immunization status, referrals to health care providers, education, provision [provide] of on-site immunizations, or incentives for immunization;

“(E) providing for home visits that promote immunization through education, assessments of need, referrals, provision of immunizations, or other services;”

“(F) providing reminders or recalls for immunization providers;”

“(G) conducting assessments of, and providing feedback to, immunization providers;”

“(H) any combination of one or more interventions described in this paragraph; or”

“(I) immunization information systems to allow all States to have electronic databases for immunization records.”

Conclusion

The Public Law exclusively states exactly where the data will come from – the Immunization Information Systems. Can you imagine police or sheriffs escorting the vaccine squad(s) for “non-compliant” parents?

At this point, I really can’t put it past them.

Consequently, once this system is completely operational, the sky is the limit. Big Brother has the capability to track more than just vaccines. You can anticipate finding just about any pharmaceutical drug mandated by the government in this same system.

The question then becomes, who influences the government agencies mandating vaccines?

US health leader warns of human-to-human H7N9 bird flu

china-bird-flu-map-0422-story-top

AFPThere is no evidence that the deadly H7N9 bird flu has yet spread between humans in China but health authorities must be ready for the virus to mutate at any time, a top US virologist has warned.

Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said officials in China had studied more than 1,000 close contacts of confirmed cases and not found any evidence of human-to-human transmission.

“That is powerful evidence because if you had a thousand contacts with someone with the flu you would be pretty sure some of them would have been infected,” Fauci said in an interview with AFP.

Nevertheless, Fauci cautioned that authorities needed to be ready for the possibility of the virus mutating and spreading between humans.

“It’s unpredictable as are all the influenza. One of the things we need to be concerned about is this might gain the capability of going human-to-human which up to this point has not happened and is somewhat encouraging news,” Fauci said.

“But we still need to be very prepared for the eventuality of that happening.”

Researchers are already developing a diagnostic test to identify H7N9, along with a vaccine, with clinical trials due in July or August.

“Work is under way on making a diagnostic test to be able to pick it up quickly,” Fauci said.

“We have already started on an early development of a vaccine as we did with H5N1 years ago… Hopefully, we will never have to use it.”

More than 110 people in mainland China have been confirmed to be infected with H7N9, with 23 deaths, since Beijing announced on March 31 that the virus had been found in humans.

Most of the cases have been located in eastern China, although Taiwan has reported one case. Another case has been found in southern China, while Chinese officials confirmed a further outbreak in the central province of Hunan.

Chinese authorities have identified poultry as the source of the virus and have confirmed that patients became sick from contact with infected live fowl.

A visiting team from the World Health Organization, which wrapped up a week-long visit to China on Wednesday, said there had been no human-to-human transmission but warned H7N9 was “one of the most lethal” influenza viruses ever seen.

Fauci praised Beijing for its handling of the current crisis, contrasting it to the response of the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome in 2002-2003, when China stood accused of covering-up the scale of the crisis.

“It was not the case with SARS in 2003 but the transparency has been excellent,” Fauci said. “I am quite satisfied with the Chinese response.”

Fauci likened the current H7N9 strain of bird flu “in some respects” to the H5N1 bird flu strain of several years ago.

“The similarities are that it is fundamentally a chicken or bird flu that jumps from chicken to humans and is quite severe when it infects humans,” he said.

However, Fauci added: “The difference between H7N9 and H5N1, is that H5N1 kills chickens very rapidly so it is easy to identify where the infected flocks of chickens are. H7N9 doesn’t make the chicken sick, so it has been difficult to pinpoint where the infected chickens are.”

There have been 566 confirmed cases of the H5N1 strain of bird flu, which killed 332 people in the world — a mortality rate of 58 percent, compared to 20 percent for the H7N9 bird flu strain.

The H1N1 “swine flu” pandemic o 2009, which appeared in Mexico at the same time of year as the H7N9, eventually infected 60 million people throughout the world and killed more than 12,000.

The 1918 Spanish flu, which has been called one of the deadliest plagues in human history, had a mortality rate of only two percent.

Flu vaccine linked to high risk of narcolepsy in those under 30: study

Dangers-of-Vaccinations

Children are not the only ones at high risk of developing the chronic neurological disorder narcolepsy in conjunction with the pandemic swine flu vaccine Pandemrix, according to a new study. The latest among several in recent years to link the two, the new paper found that people age 20 and younger have a roughly tripled risk of developing narcolepsy if they get the H1N1 jab, while people 30 and younger have about a doubled risk.

Affirming what Sweden and at least a dozen other countries discovered several years ago, the study determined that for every 100,000 people vaccinated with Pandemrix, which is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, an extra four cases of narcolepsy develop among those 20 and younger. For those between 21-30, an extra two cases per 100,000 were observed, according to Sweden’s Medical Products Agency.

“We’re talking about a horribly debilitating disorder, and that’s too many cases caused by a vaccine of all things,” said Ingemar Persson, author of the study. “The narcolepsy problem came as a total surprise and since it’s such a rare disease it wasn’t something we could have looked into beforehand,” he added, in obvious defense of his country’s mass vaccination program.

But Persson’s study is not the first to pin Pandemrix as a trigger of narcolepsy. Similar research published just a few weeks ago in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) just a few weeks ago concluded that getting the swine flu vaccine increases ones risk of developing narcolepsy by as much as 1,400 percent (http://www.naturalnews.com). Similarly, a review published in the journal PLoS ONE identified a 1,700 percent increased risk of narcolepsy in those vaccinated for swine flu (http://www.naturalnews.com/035501_vaccines_narcolepsy_children.html).

‘We can see that over the whole study period we have 126 cases of those vaccinated getting narcolepsy,” added Persson. “There were 20 cases among those not vaccinated. We’re talking about a threefold increase in risk.”

Reports indicate that both the Swedish and Finnish governments have agreed to provide financial compensation for those injured by Pandemrix, which was the only type of swine flu vaccine administered during the 2009/2010 pandemic. Sweden’s Pharmaceutical Insurance agency is also evaluating whether or not it will provide compensation to 90 additional young adults that developed narcolepsy from the vaccine.

The specific trigger in Pandemrix associated with narcolepsy appears to be AS03, a squalene-based adjuvant that was allegedly added to help boost the immune response produced by the vaccine. According to the data, AS03 and other forms of injectable squalene are extremely high-risk, and are associated with causing autoimmune disorders, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), and various other health conditions.

The truth behind the influenza death rates and the CDC manipulation

flu-deaths-stat-seniors65

(NaturalNews) In the last few weeks there has been significant talk of the so called “flu epidemic” that is sweeping the nation. The majority of what you’re hearing about in the media deals with death rates from the disease. Along with these details comes an assortment of statistical analysis from every big name organization you can think of. However, how accurate are the statistics and what is the truth behind the flu related deaths the media scares us with? (The following information was taken directly from the governmental website for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.)

When people hear about influenza related deaths, they are influenced into thinking that these deaths are directly caused by the flu. However, as stated by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, “Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom seasonal influenza infection was LIKELY a contributor to the cause of death, but NOT necessarily the primary cause of death.” So what does this mean? It means that the flu related deaths are nothing more than speculation. In fact, continuing through the website you can find information regarding how the CDC calculates the number of influenza deaths. “Many seasonal flu-related deaths occur one or two weeks after a person’s initial infection, either because the person may develop a secondary bacterial co-infection (such as bacterial pneumonia) or because seasonal influenza can aggravate an existing chronic illness (such as congestive heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).” Therefore, it seems that the real problem is not focusing on the flu virus. The problem is that people have very weak immune systems and extremely poor health in general. This is part of the reason why as stated on the CDC website, 90 percent of those who die from influenza related disease are over the age of 65. At that point in our lives, our bodies in general are starting to deteriorate so we must make sure we do everything we can to keep them thriving.

Another important fact that can be found on the CDC website is that the CDC does not believe that influenza is the cause of most pneumonia and influenza related deaths. “Only a small proportion of deaths in either of these two categories are estimated to be influenza-related. CDC estimated that only 8.5% of all pneumonia and influenza deaths and only 2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths were influenza-related.” This is a very interesting point that makes you wonder, why is there such an immense amount of publicity about the seriousness of influenza related deaths when the CDC states on their website that about 2.1 percent of respiratory deaths are influenza related?

So what should you take away from this information? Well for one, do not stress about getting the flu. We know stress depresses your immune system and that is definitely not going to help your chances at beating the flu. If you do end up getting the virus, make sure you take care of yourself with proper sleep, liquids and vitamins. Try taking vitamin D3, zinc, vitamin A and selenium among others. All of these have been shown to boost immune response in individuals. Secondly, the problem with this sudden influx of influenza infections is most likely due to our nation’s poor nutritional lifestyles, which create incapable immune systems. Let’s start focusing on creating healthy bodies rather than short cuts to try and “beat” the flu.
