Off the Reservation: Swine Flu Hoax


It seems the World Health Organization (WHO) is reluctant to answer the question posed by its eponymous acronym. Specifically, who are the special advisors to the organization that made the determination that H1N1 was a pandemic best prevented by the use of mass vaccinations? Less than one year ago, the world was introduced to the Swine Flu. The headlines and reports of Swine Flu (the pork industry lobbied to curtail the colloquial reference to pigs by insisting the media refer to it by its clinical name, H1N1) gripped the world.

Thus far, the only thing that wound up going viral was panic.

For months I have confided to friends and colleagues that I believed H1N1 to be one of the greatest public hoaxes ever propagated by the pharmaceutical industry. Publicly, however, I lacked the courage to go on the offensive and commit this belief to writing. The conflict surrounding vaccinations and public health is a highly charged and emotional issue, one that invites vitriolic criticism depending upon which side of the fence your flag is planted. Even questioning physicians about the efficacy of required vaccinations invites ridicule and alienation. Parents look at you with disdain if you speak up against vaccinations as though your child is Typhoid Mary. This is because they’re getting advice (rightfully so) from physicians who are getting their information from the American Medical Association (AMA), which is inexorably linked to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This is the same FDA that will prevent potentially lifesaving drugs from entering the country while railroading approval for a vaccination that hasn’t undergone any scrutiny because the WHO tells them it’s safe and necessary to do so. The disconnect between public health policy and approved treatments for disease in this country is astounding.

The FDA allows Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) to promote growth of milk production in cows. When these hormones, still present in the milk consumed by our children, contribute to premature puberty, obesity and unusual tumor growth, the FDA grants approvals for drugs that combat these diseases instead of eliminating the cause. Quite the closed loop—a closed and extremely profitable loop constructed, engineered and hand-delivered through the revolving door by FDA executives that come from the pharmaceutical industry.

As it turns out the FDA, WHO and AMA have one thing in common. They are directly backed and funded by pharmaceutical companies. The same pharmaceutical companies that have generated billions of dollars in revenue from the production of H1N1 vaccinations that the world didn’t need. H1N1 is said to have contributed to the deaths of 14,000 people worldwide since its sudden and much-heralded appearance. A minimum of 250,000 died due to the normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill influenza virus (flu) in the same time period. Compare that to a study published in the AMA’s own journal that states, “Overall in 1994, we estimated that 106,000 deaths were caused by Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) in the United States, which could account for 4.6 percent of the recorded deaths from all causes.” Excluded from this study were drugs given in error, or “non-compliance.” The study concludes by saying that ADR ranks “fourth, after heart disease, cancer, and stroke as a leading cause of death.” This study is available on the AMA website, which boasts sponsors such as Pristiq Desvenlafaxine, Onglyza (saxagliptin), MultaQ (dronedarone), and Novartis.

Do the math. FDA-approved drugs, administered properly, made by the pharmaceutical industry in America and promoted by the AMA, kill seven times more people in the United States alone than H1N1 kills worldwide. FDA-approved drugs also kill seven times more people in the United States than illegal drugs.

The only true pandemic is the conscience-eating virus that has attacked the executives behind every faceless alphabet directory of medical oversight committee that feeds from Big Pharma’s trough.
