Interesting, isn't it? In the rest of this article, you'll discover even more insider stuff about the topic - and it is simple and easy to follow. Bird Flu Pandemic: Fact or Fiction?
Just the word, pandemic, now creates visions of death and misery like something out of the Black or Bubonic Plague era. "Bring out the dead" they yelled, as oxen pulled wood wheeled carts laden with the dead and dying. Tamiflu selling for $170 a shot on E-bay and a vaccine shortage is almost guaranteed. HEPA masks selling like hotcakes at inflated prices. Are the doomsday prophets working overtime or is this a legitimate global risk? They say history repeats itself. Two children in Hong Kong in 1999 infected with bird flu but they recover. Eighteen in Hong Kong in 1997 infected with bird flu. Six died. The Russian Flu strikes in 1977, goes global but the majority of the infected are children and young adults. The death rate was not high. The Swine Flu scare in 1976 starts with infected soldiers in New Jersey. It does not go global, it did not even spread yet the scare causes 40 million Americans to get vaccinated. Many suffer debilitating side affects from the vaccinations. The 1968 Hong Kong Flu goes global hitting the elderly the hardest and killing approximately 1 million people. The 1957 Asian Flu Pandemic also went global again hitting the elderly and killing approximately 2 million. The 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic was the bad boy infecting up to 30 percent of the world population and killing an estimated 40 million worldwide. Some interesting questions have arisen concerning the Spanish Flu and vaccinations in general. The flu virus wasn't identified until 1933 by British scientists. How did they know it was that virus? Or even a virus at all? The Spanish Flu reportedly infected most individuals between the age of 15 and 35. It is estimated that 99% of those infected were under the age of 65. Not the young, old, and infirm? That sounds odd. Did we unwittingly create the Spanish Flu Pandemic? The 1976 Swine Flu scare started with soldiers in New Jersey. The Spanish Flu was said to be spread by troop movement during WWI. In the early 1900s soldiers were given 14 to 25 inoculations and vaccinations. What age were these soldiers, and what age did the Spanish Flu infect? The same vaccines were used world wide to vaccinate against the diseases that the soldiers were spreading. With vaccinations being an immune system suppressant, and the interactions of these other vaccinations probably being unknown, one can only wonder what kind of toxic soup was being injected into the arms of millions.
