Swine Flu Cases Vastly Mis-Over-Estimated

Seems likely at this point that the majority of fall illness is just people over-reacting to common colds. Funny how fear-mongering can plant the seeds of social collapse. CBS broke the story earlier this week. The CBC has admitted that the numbers are far lower than what is being reported in the media.

Here's the CBS report:

As a father to two little girls, this whole shabang has really been bothering me- I find it difficult to know what to do about getting my daughters vaccinated or not. I personally don't want to get them vaccinated, but at the same time, just from the media side, they never get tired of reporting how "1000 kids" have already died of H1N1. I take it you yourself don't suggest that I get the vaccine?

It truly depends on the individual. If one of your baby girls has asthma, or is insulin resistant/hyperglycemic, she is at higher risk of complications. There is the chance that your family could get vaccinated still get the flu. The vaccines don't cover 100% of strains and the flu virus is notorious for evolving faster than they can manufacture new vaccines. If your girls are strong wild young things, they might benefit from getting the flu and hence being forever immune to H1N1 threats---even though the threat might not come again until they are 80 years old. So in other words, it is beyond me to say what you should do, but I do believe that the fear and hype are overblown, and that healthy humans have been surviving flu since our beginning.

As for the worries about the toxic additives in the vaccines, those are real and serious concerns. Girls age 5-21 are at the highest risk of developing auto-immune disease after having vaccines. There are other risks that are poo-pooed by the CDC, but for which the science is just beginning. There is a real risk, and there is also imagined and hyped risk. If you do decide to vaccinate, it is reasonable to avoid multiple vaccinations in short time periods, and to support the body's self-cleaning process in between. Make them eat their veggies!! =-]

"social collapse?"

When did we have a "social collapse?" Granted, I just got up and haven't read the news yet, but I must ask - NOW who's overstating things?

I'm just talking about seeds, my friend. When you have school closures based on people being afraid to send their children to school, and then parents can't go to work, you have seeds. It's especially silly when it turns out that most of them don't have the flu at all.
