Experts downgrade worst case swine flu scenarios

Comments Off

As many countries are downgrading H1N1 to a mild flu, when is the US going stop it’s fear mongering and follow suite? Finland did this months ago, Australia had only around 6% of the predicted deaths from H1N1, The UK had predicted 65,000 death, then downgraded that to 19,000 and now it says around 1,000 will die. So why is the United States still hyping up the “pandemic death toll” talk still? I would guess MONEY for their pharmaceutical buddies. Because we have learned most wealthy western counties are signing secret contracts with the pharmaceuticals that’s what the hype is about over here still. We don’t know a lot about the contracts because guess what? They’re secret, but we do know they exist in France and Poland because it was leaked.


Experts curb worst case swine flu scenarios

The 2009 swine flu pandemic may turn out to be the weakest in history. It is spreading more slowly than expected and the latest figures show a flattening, or even a dip, in new infections. It is mild in most people but severe in a few and, while it readily infects children, it appears to spare the elderly. With the vaccine being rolled out – more than four million doses have already been delivered – its impact should be further curbed.

So far in the UK, 154 people have died from the virus, around half of whom were under 45. In addition, 1,431 were admitted to hospital with swine flu last week. But in comparison with previous pandemics – or even seasonal flu epidemics – this is a relatively low toll.

In July, shortly after the World Health Organisation declared the first flu pandemic for 40 years, Britain’s Chief Medical Officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, published a worst-case scenario suggesting the country should plan for up to 65,000 deaths.

That planning assumption has since been revised downwards twice, as further information about the behaviour of the virus has become available. In September the “worst case” was cut to 19,000 deaths, and in October it was cut again to 1,000 deaths. This compares with an average annual toll of 4,000 to 8,000 deaths from seasonal winter flu. In the last epidemic in 1999-2000, there were 21,000 deaths.

Previous pandemics have had higher death tolls. In 1918 Spanish H1N1 flu claimed an estimated 230,000 lives in Britain and up to 40 million worldwide.

In 1957-58, Asian H2N2 flu caused 1.5 to 2 million deaths worldwide and 33,000 in Britain. That was followed a decade later by Hong Kong H3N2 flu in 1968-69 which caused an estimated one million deaths worldwide of which 30,000 were in Britain.

So far, 2009 “novel H1N1” flu has caused 6,394 deaths worldwide, of which 154 have been in the UK.

Doctors say the key difference with seasonal winter flu is that it does not normally kill the young. Swine flu is worst among the under-fives, as happened in all three 20th century pandemics. The hospitalisation rate for the under-fives is four times higher than in older age groups. Pregnant women are also vulnerable. Experts say that even if the death toll from swine flu turns out to be significantly lower than in previous pandemics, it may feel worse.

Dr Steven Field, chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said: “I thought the original predictions for the number of deaths were incredibly high given the mildness of the illness we were seeing. Hospitals are coming under pressure but because the care is so good fewer people are dying.”

Dr Laurence Buckman, chairman of the British Medical Association’s GPs committee said: “The original government masterplan was for a maximum of 250,000 dead. But that was based on avian flu. It became clear that swine flu did not pose the same risk and slowly it has become clearer that it poses less and less risk. Compared with those earlier assumptions it is looking pretty tame.”

Proof H1N1 was Planned Pandemic With 100% Certainty Exposed

Comments Off

I have suspicioned this for some time now since the WHO (World Health Organization)  declared this a pandemic in the very early spring and later moved this to a level 6 so they could take control on how it was handled mostly worldwide. The WHO is even dictating how this is handled here in the US. If you listen to doctors they say this H1N1 is milder than regular seasonal flu and even though one death is bad we have far more deaths annually from regular seasonal flu (36,000 in US and 500,000 worldwide) and most rational people that know this wonder …….why the national emergency. I know this is going to sound crazy to a lot of people, but I believe this has every thing to do with control and world government through the WHO and United Nations. A trial balloon so to speak.

IBM Internal Document Outlines Knowledge of Planned Pandemic With 100% Certainty

IBM Internal Document Outlines Knowledge of Planned Pandemic With 100% Certainty

“Services & Global Procurement pan IOT Europe, Pandemic Plan Overview,”an official inter-departmental document was distributed to upper-level management of IBM, France in 2006. Disclosed in this secret document was the prediction of a “planned” pandemic described as having a “100% chance of occurring within the next 5 years.” The document also describes “quarantines”and operational procedures to be taken upon the official announcements of the “pandemic”by the World Health Organization. The foreknowledge of such an event could not exist, unless the pandemic was a planned event.

Certainly, this document is the “smoking gun” which demonstrates the current bird/swine flu “pandemic”is an orchestrated event leading to mass vaccinations sponsored by the WHO and UN.

This single document definitively proves there is international, corporate collusion behind the “bird/swine flu pandemic”and the intentional plan to create disease on a worldwide scale.

As evidenced by this document (see below), IBM’s primary concerns are focused on maintaining their workforce, even under an official quarantine, and the continuation of sales and services to their clients.

IBM is considered to be one of the most powerful corporations in the world.

IBM worked closely with the Nazis in their mass extermination eugenics program. IBM’s machines and punch cards were used at all stages of the Nazi extermination program. According to author Edwin Black, IBM was involved in virtually every aspect of the Third Reich’s operations.

IBM, the Rockefellers, the Carnegie Institution and other globalist foundations were intimately involved in Germany’s eugenics program. In Mein Kampf, published in 1924, Hitler quoted American eugenic ideology and openly displayed a thorough knowledge of American eugenics. “There is today one state,” wrote Hitler, “in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception [of immigration] are noticeable. Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the United States.”

Without Vaccine, Australia Shrugs Off Swine Flu without a H1N1 vaccine

Comments Off

Well to those of us who are keeping up with the truth about H1N1  were watching for the figures when they came in from Australia which being in the southern hemisphere just finished their flu season and has summer coming. Whereas here in the United States it is being hyped up more than anywhere else in the world. Even the UK just recently reduced their predicted deaths from H1N1 by 2/3 and Finland has downgraded the “pandemic” from a level 6 to a milder level because it is not as serious as is being hyped up in North America. I suspect there is a reason for this hyped up “emergency” that just isn’t there.

Without Vaccine, Australia Shrugs Off Swine Flu.

With no vaccine available for H1N1 flu, Australia recently ended its 2009 “Flu Season” (their Winter in our Summer), with 186 flu-associated fatalities of 36,991 Aussies confirmed having H1N1. (Instead of the predicted 3,000 deaths from H1N1)

The Australia 2009 stats for regular ‘seasonal flu’ are not final yet, but their Health Dept literature cites annual flu-associated mortality historically has been between 2,500 and 3,000  in spite of universal  vaccination programs for regular flu long being established.  A logical review of these results strongly suggests next year Australia should initiate a “flu vaccination holiday,” promote vitamin D supplements, long known to be effective for preventing Wintertime flu disease, and then compare the outcomes.

Pertinently, experts have also stated that H1N1 was probably already in Australia for their 2008 flu season, but not tested for (which is the nature of the testing world; a great percentage of “flu” cases being presumptive, never tested).  In light of Australia clearly showing the pussycat nature of H1N1, can somebody explain why America’s media willfully ignores the news from Australia? However, despite the derelict media, I would think U.S. Health Generals would certainly be up on Flu news from Down Under, and certainly from Canada right next door.

Canadian front page news on flu vaccinations has transfixed Canada health authorities, prompting official suspension of regular flu vaccination programs until further notice. This comes from a sweeping study of Canada by research Doctors Danuta Skowronski of the British Columbia Centre of Disease Control and Gaston De Serres of Laval University in Quebec concluding Canadians receiving flu vaccinations have twice the risk of coming down with the flu, compared to those who do not take the shot.
In a bizarre five-hour worldwide teleconference held by the World Health Organization October 4 on the Skowronski/De Serres Study, U.S. doctors offered the opinion that the Canadian doctors’ flu vaccination study was certainly wrong and must have used flawed study parameters, though the U.S. doctors admittedly could not identify anything specific.  To paraphrase the U.S. attitude: ‘Damn the vaccination studies, flu speed ahead!’ (Let’s make that money by selling the vaccines to every American.)

In view of all this, America wakes up Sunday, Oct. 25 to headlines of President Obama proclaiming Saturday that H1N1 Flu is now under a National Health Emergency. Perhaps, Obama’s rhetoric is no coincidence as it is well known most Americans have been rejecting their invitations to show up for their shots.  And maybe, American mothers and fathers realize there are indeed catastrophic risks associated with vaccinations, particularly since CDC says their kids should be marched in for shots, regardless of CDC admitting the shots contain full amounts of mercury preservative.  And, I am not making this up: CDC astonishingly insists that the mercury in vaccines brings no risk whatsoever to kids. (Even though the H1N1 vaccine has 25,000 times more mercury in it that is safe in food. What sense does that make?)

Three related conclusions come to mind:

(1) My hat is off to the public, thinking for themselves.  Huraah!!

(2) Obama’s health advisor Harry Varmus, NIAID chief Tony Fauci, HHS Secretary Sebelius, CDC Director Thomas Frieden, CDC Commander Anne Schuchat are so zealously dedicated to Herd Control of Americans they willfully ignore the honest, financially independent, most available information on Planet Earth: Australia’s just ended Flu Season, and the study in Canada by Doctors Skowronski and De Serres (and other studies that reinforce their conclusion). U.S. health officials promoting unwarranted epidemic fears and manipulation of H1N1 flu deserve permanent mail room duty on the international space station – at best.

(3) President Obama illustrates perfectly the medically-ignorant political animal, craving to be seen as a Medical Hero in the national spotlight, while willfully ignoring abundant proof of brain damage and other permanent disabilities to millions of children by vaccines’ mercury and other toxic ingredients cavalierly injected in such as the H1N1 vaccine.

Government May Block Websites During Pandemic Emergency…WHY?


Well here we have another excuse for government control and takeover of something else…..using Obama’s  “emergency” declaration on a H1N1 pandmenic. I have to ask again….why an emergency in the United States and no where else in the world? As a matter of fact Finland has downgraded H1N1 from a level 6, Australia’s death toll from an already peaked flu season was around 150 instead of the predicted 3,000 and the UK has lowered their death toll from H1N1 by 2/3, then said the number of deaths could be even lower than anticipated. So what’s going on here in America? In late-July, the CDC advised US states to stop testing for H1N1 flu and the CDC stopped counting individual cases of “swine flu.”   The rationale touted for this was that is was a waste of resources testing for H1N1 flu when the US government had already established that there was an epidemic. But was there really, or were they aiming to conceal the truth in order to be able to mislead the public to legitimize the H1N1 vaccine program, and hype the phoney crisis to aid in the push for a World Government since the “pandemic” is worldwide ? I’m  sure in time we’ll see what Obama is up to later and we may not like it. It’s bound to be more government control somehow, but they need another excuse and this time it’s H1N1, that admittedly is highly contagious, but even more milder than regular seasonal flu. We have 1,000 deaths so far in the US from H1N1 and seasonal flu claims 36,000, so where’s the fire? By blocking websites, the truth may not be able to get out anymore……..maybe that is why they won’t an excuse to block websites ?

Government May Block Websites During Pandemic  Emergency…WHY?

Securities exchanges have a sound network back-up if a severe pandemic keeps people home and clogging the Internet, but the Homeland Security Department has done little planning, Congressional investigators said on Monday.

The department does not even have a plan to start work on the issue, the General Accountability Office said.

But the Homeland Security Department accused the GAO of having unrealistic expectations of how the Internet could be managed if millions began to telework from home at the same time as bored or sick schoolchildren were playing online, sucking up valuable bandwidth.

Experts have for years pointed to the potential problem of Internet access during a severe pandemic, which would be a unique kind of emergency. It would be global, affecting many areas at once, and would last for weeks or months, unlike a disaster such as a hurricane or earthquake.

H1N1 swine flu has been declared a pandemic but is considered a moderate one. Health experts say a worse one — or a worsening of this one (In Australia where flu season if over, the H1N1 virus didn’t mutate into something worse) — could result in 40 percent absentee rates at work and school at any given time and closed offices, transportation links and other gathering places.


UPDATE: CBS Reveals that Swine Flu Cases Seriously Overestimated

Comments Off

Well this is no surprise when you considered the World Health Organization has told the CDC to consider everything the H1N1 (swine flu) without even testing for it.

CBS Reveals that Swine Flu Cases Seriously Overestimated

Before beginning their investigation, CBS News asked the CDC for state-by-state test results prior to their halting of testing and tracking. The CDC did not initially respond so CBS went to all 50 states directly, asking for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 prior to the halt of individual testing and counting in July. What did they find? CBS reported:

“The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico.”

Part two here:                           Part Three here:

As you can see from this CBS News graphic, not only are most cases of suspected flu-like illnesses not H1N1, they’re not even the flu but more likely some type of cold or upper respiratory infection.

President Obama declares national emergency over swine flu pandemic, but why?

Comments Off

Obama needs a distraction from his looming defeat on Health Care. Obama is up to something by doing this. There is no emergency here in the US. We have an estimated 1,000 deaths from swine flu and 36,000 annually from seasonal flu. “Many millions” of Americans have had swine flu so far, according to an estimate<  that CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden gave Friday. The government doesn’t test everyone to confirm swine flu so it doesn’t have an exact count. (So how can he say with confidence that one million have had the swine flu? He can’t)
So any figure we hear is a guess. By the directors own words…”we don’t test everyone”. There is no emergency….there is some other reason for doing this…NO other country worldwide has declared an emergency, as a matter of fact Finland has downgraded the H1N1 virus because it is mild worldwide including America. This is more insanity. Strange Obama waited until late Friday to do this. Well not really…..That’s the traditional day when the White House slips stories into the press they want to “soften.” They don’t want lots of flack, and the weekend gives them some cover.

President Obama declares national emergency over swine flu pandemic, but why?

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency and empowered his health secretary to suspend federal requirements and speed treatment for thousands of infected people.

The declaration that Obama signed late Friday authorized Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to bypass federal rules so health officials can respond more quickly to the outbreak, which has killed more than 1,000 people in the United States.

The goal is to remove bureaucratic roadblocks and make it easier for sick people to seek treatment and medical providers to provide it immediately. That could mean fewer hurdles involving Medicare, Medicaid or health privacy regulations.

“As a nation, we have prepared at all levels of government, and as individuals and communities, taking unprecedented steps to counter the emerging pandemic,” Obama wrote in the declaration, which theWhite House announced Saturday.

He said the pandemic keeps evolving, the rates of illness are rising rapidly in many areas and there’s a potential “to overburden health care resources.”

Because of vaccine production delays, the government has backed off initial, optimistic estimates that as many as 120 million doses would be available by mid-October. As of Wednesday, only 11 million doses had been shipped to health departments, doctor’s offices and other providers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionofficials said.

Swine flu is more widespread now than it’s ever been. Health authorities say almost 100 children have died from the flu, known as H1N1, and 46 states now have widespread flu activity.(But let’s keep this in perspective…36,000 die annually from seasonal flu in the United States alone… where’s the fire?)

Worldwide, more than 5,000 people have reportedly died from swine flu since it emerged this year and developed into a global epidemic, the World Health Organization said Friday.(Again let’s keep this in perspective……world wide 500,000 die annually from seasonal flu…….5,000 deaths is 1% of that total…..So I ask again…….Where’s the fire?)(The Fire is for Control….by declaring a level 6 pandemic the WHO controls how this “pandemic” is handled worldwide and this includes the United States.Of course allowing this (UN control)  is an act of treason.) Since most countries have stopped counting individual swine flu cases, the figure is considered an underestimate.(Or maybe overestimated as well.)

NFL cheerleader suffers brain damage after getting flu shot


Here’s the sad story of one of the 30,000 people the CDC admits will be maimed or killed by swine flu (H1N1) vaccines this year, in this case it was the seasonal flu shot she got. This may be a rare side effect, but this girl was healthy and had no idea this would happen. I think I’d rather have the flu personally and be back to myself in a week or less.

Here’s some interesting statistics on the flu shot: The Truth about the Flu Shot

FDA Approved H1N1 Vaccines Contain Ingredients Known to Cause Cancer and Death

NFL cheerleader suffers brain damage after getting flu shot

Flowing long brown hair, a beautiful face and adoring husband are features that describe Desiree Jennings and her life. However, her life today is changed forever –for the worse–from where it existed only a few short weeks ago. Less than a month ago, Desiree was a Redskins footaball team cheerleader, marathon runner and energetic fast-moving athlete. Today, Desiree has seizures, speaks in a painfully halted manner that is often incoherent and has neurological damage that is irreperable.The culprit: the flu shot.

Desiree, 25, was diagnosed by her therapist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD as having dystonia, a brain disorder which causes body jerks, and abnormal or repetitive movements because the muscles in her body are continously contracting. She had no prior health issues and had decided to take the flu shot to prevent herself from getting sick. Though health officials assert that Desiree’s case is rare, it is clear that not only the recent H1N1 vaccine is a cause for concern, but the common flu shot should alert people to make a careful consideration when getting the shot which is often available for free.

Every year in this country 5 to 20 percent of the population gets the flu, more than 30,000 people die from the flu and 200,000 are hospitalized.

Flu shots are highly recommended for:

  • people that are 50 or older
  • children ages 6 months to 5 years
  • pregnant women
  • healthcare workers
  • people with chronic medical conditions, like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, dialysis patients, respiratory diseases, heart disease, AIDS, and high blood pressure.
  • people who live with others who are at risk for flu-related complications.

When Desiree became ill after getting the shot, she and her husband notified authorities of her condition and requested an investigation be done to see if the batch of flu vaccine was tainted. Authorities told the Jennings and FOX 5 news in DC that the batch was not tainted. However her case of dystonia is still attributed to the shot and there is no answer as to why Desiree was stricken with dystonia after getting her flu shot.

Canada delays seasonal flu shots amid concerns

Comments Off

TORONTO, Oct. 6 (UPI) — Annual flu shots have been delayed in much of Canada because of an unpublished study suggesting the shots increase one’s likelihood of contracting swine flu.

Twelve of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories have put off the flu shots for most people until after H1N1 inoculations are done, probably by year’s end, The Wall Street Journal reported in Wednesday’s editions.

Researchers from the British Columbia Center for Disease Control, the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion and Laval University in Quebec co-authored the study. They say it has yet to be reviewed for publication in a journal, but won’t say which.

Few people have seen the study’s data and some remain skeptical of its conclusion, the Journal said. Perry Kendall, provincial health officer for British Columbia, said the study “wasn’t something we felt we could ignore.”

British Columbia decided to limit seasonal-flu shots to people age 65 and older until after the H1N1 vaccinations.

Kendall, who said he has seen the data and has spoken with the study’s co-authors, said the study suggests people vaccinated against seasonal flu are twice as likely to contract the swine flu.

“Why would you want to run the risk of doubling people’s risk of getting H1N1?” Kendall said.

Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said told reporters recently there is no “real explanation technically or scientifically” for a link between the seasonal flu shot and a greater chance of contracting H1N1.

Another Reason To Homeschool Your Children?

Did you know? Mandatory swine flu vaccinations for school children may be implemented in your state come fall 2009. (Can they do that? Is it Constitutional?)

Apparently, that’s what the federal government would like to see happen.  On the website for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, ( it was announced that the federal government is committed to “developing a national response framework and action plan” to prepare for a more serious outbreak of the swine flu in the fall.

Although the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website does not state that the vaccinations will be “mandatory”, it does say that the federal government is “partnering” with state and local governments in this effort. That’s primarily because the federal government inherently does not have any Constitutional authority to mandate that school children receive any vaccinations.  That authority is a power that is left to the States and to the people pursuant to the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  Over time, however, the people in most states have allowed their elected officials to implement state laws that do mandate vaccinations for school children.  According to the Congressional Research Service, in a report released in 2005, every state has a law requiring children to be vaccinated before they enrolled in a public or a private school.  The report indicates that, generally, states use the federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s schedule of immunizations as a guide, and require children to be vaccinated against a number of diseases.

While most states’ laws do provide for parents to exempt their children from mandatory vaccinations, the exemptions are very limited.  The Congressional Research Service report also notes that, at least in 2005, there “did not appear to be any regulations regarding the implementation of a mandatory vaccination program at the federal level during a public health emergency.”  It remains to be seen whether Congress will enact legislation, unconstitutional or not, that may change that situation.

For now, at least, it would appear that the federal government is relying on a more familiar technique to accomplish its goals.  It is, once again, dangling federal tax dollars in front of state officials to get the states to do its bidding. The Health and Human Services Department website notes that the federal government will make available to the states “preparedness grants worth a total of $350 million” so the states can “step up” their “preparedness efforts.”

It is also highly interesting for parents to note that the Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, also indicated in news reports that “no final decision has been made on whether to vaccinate Americans” yet because it “depends largely on studies with experimental batches…[of the vaccine] to see if they’re safe and seem to work…”  (Emphasis added).

Not to worry, though.  She hopes that “all goes well”. If it does, she added, the federal government would buy the vaccine from manufacturers and share it among the states to get it to the “targeted population as soon as possible.”  Whom did she say was first in line for the vaccine?  School children, of course, would be first.  In fact, the federal government’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan said, “Schools are natural places” to offer those vaccines.

As can be seen, some questions remain to be answered in this scenario, not the least of which is, “Will the vaccines be safe for your child?”  It’s hard to find the answer to that question, although the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Inc. has on its website, some things to ponder. The website contains a “Fact Sheet on Mandatory Vaccines”.  Among the facts cited there are:

“The Centers for Disease Control admits that the reported number of adverse effects of vaccines is probably only 10% of actual adverse effects;”

Rampant conflicts of interest in the approval process has been the subject of several Congressional hearings, and a recent Congressional report concluded that the pharmaceutical industry has indeed exerted undue influence on mandatory vaccine legislation toward its own financial interests;”

“The vaccine approval process has also been contaminated by flawed or incomplete clinical trials, and government officials have chosen to ignore negative results;” and

Mandatory vaccines violate the medical ethic of informed consent. A case could also be made that mandates for vaccines by school districts and legislatures is the de facto practice of medicine without a license.

Aside from the controversies surrounding the possibility of adverse side effects, the efficacy of the vaccine, and whether or not parents actually will be provided with sufficient information to offer informed consent, parents need to consider whether they will have any ability to consent, at all, before their children are required to receive the vaccine.

Before this fall, parents need to ask, “Is my state mandating that my child obtain the swine flu vaccine as a prerequisite to attending school?  After all, the states already require children to receive other vaccinations as a prerequisite to attending school.  Will the swine flu become just another one of the vaccinations already required?

An even better question to ask is, “Will the State be compelled to require children to receive the swine flu vaccine as a condition of the State receiving its share of the $350 million dollars that the federal government is providing to the States for swine flu preparedness?”  That is the preferred method, to date, when the federal government wants to mandate the implementation of its will. Why wouldn’t the federal government utilize that same method when it comes to dictating what vaccinations your child will receive?

If the federal government does make such a deal with the States as a means to achieving its goal of having children vaccinated, what is a concerned parent to do?  If a child cannot attend school, public or private, (private schools also already must comply with State imposed vaccination laws), without receiving the swine flu vaccination, and the parent objects to the child receiving the swine flu vaccine out of concern for possible adverse effects, the parent then either risks the child’s health, or risks the possibility of having the child be considered truant. Or, is there another solution?  The answer to that is yes. At that point, the parent can choose to homeschool.  Most state laws regarding vaccination only apply to children upon entrance to public and private school. They do not require children who are homeschooled to obtain those vaccinations. That’s because the purpose of vaccination of the population in public and private school is to stop the spread of the disease in that community where the children congregate in large numbers, and where it is more difficult to control the spread of germs and to maintain a clean environment.

The purpose of the vaccination no longer exists, however, at least not anywhere near to the same extent, when children are educated at home. Their numbers are smaller and their environment is easier to maintain in a relatively germ free manner. While normally homeschooled children are not recluses, in the midst of an epidemic there is no need to fear that they will either get, or spread, the infectious disease because the parents can regulate their contact with other children. Nor is there any need to fear that their education will suffer when their education takes place in the home in any case.  Their parents likely will remain highly motivated to keep the children from exposure during the outbreak, while at the same time to continue their educational routine unabated.

While there are many diverse reasons why parents homeschool, and while it is still uncertain at this time whether swine flu vaccinations will become mandatory, come this fall, there may be one more very good reason why parents may choose to homeschool.

SWINE FLU:There is no solid evidence indicating that H1N1 will meet dire projections

Comments Off

More news from Dr. Sherri Tenpenny’s website on the real swine flu going around, not the hype in mainstream media.

There is no solid evidence indicating that H1N1 will meet dire projections.

By Michael Fumento
The Philadelphia Inquirer

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology issued an alarming report on swine flu last week. A typical front-page article about it began, “Swine flu could infect half the U.S. population this fall and winter, hospitalizing up to 1.8 million people and causing as many as 90,000 deaths.”

But the council’s “plausible scenario” involving those alarming figures is based on three main assumptions, and all three are highly suspect.

First, the report says that “based on past pandemics,” a sharp increase in infections “is likely … starting in September and peaking in October.” That’s important, because the first shipments of vaccine aren’t expected until mid-October.

The problem is that swine flu isn’t comparable to those past pandemics. As I wrote in June, it’s only called a pandemic because the World Health Organization changed its definition of the term so that “enormous numbers of deaths and illness” are no longer required.(to call it a pandemic and go to level 6)

Furthermore, true pandemics have been severe because the viruses involved were alien to our immune systems. But H1N1 virus, of which swine flu is a variety, “has been circulating every year since 1977,” noted Peter Palese of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, a member of the president’s council. It’s consistently part of the seasonal-flu vaccine. The swine flu variety is different in some ways, but this is “something our immune systems have seen before,” Palese said.

In fact, older people seem especially protected, apparently from exposure to a strain that circulated before 1957. That helps explain why swine flu disproportionately afflicts younger people.(older people have been exposed to it more than once in their lifetime)

Palese, who is none too happy with the council’s report, calls an October peak “highly hypothetical.” James Chin, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and former WHO epidemiologist, is even more skeptical.Just six weeks from now, about a quarter of the U.S. population will have to have been infected, or close to an average of two million infections per day,” he noted. It took almost five months for the flu to reach an estimated two million infections.
