The Great Bird Flu Hoax

A major new book by world-renowned physician and dietary expert Dr. Joseph Mercola and investigative journalist Pam Killeen called The Great Bird Flu Hoax: The Truth They* Don't Want You to Know About the "Next Big Pandemic is about to be published

*"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country."

Extracted from: Bernays - Propaganda (how the media molds your mind) (1928)
See also: Who They Are...

Having had an opportunity to look at the pre published copy, the true power of the book comes from exposing the HOAX perpetrated by the government, the drug companies, the giant food and agri-businesses, and the mainstream media… A hoax that diverts attention away from the REAL health and societal crises and allows the continued exploitation of the trusting masses.

Dr. Mercola and Killeen expose, in depth, the lack of responsible agriculture, the systematic obliteration of small local farms, inhumane and unethical bird farms and other corporate animal farming**, GMOs and big food corporations, pesticides/herbicides versus organics, and pending Big Pharma legislation, which may actually destroy the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution.

**This video is not easy to watch.

Here is an example of just one from many of their shenanigans:

"The CDC currently says that the regular flu kills 36,000 people in the U.S. every year. But some estimates indicate that through the 1970's and 1980's, there were 20,000 deaths per year from the flu. Now, suddenly, this figure has almost doubled. Why?

Harvard grad student, Peter Doshi, decided to do his own research into the claim that 36,000 people die annually from the flu. He published his letter "Are U.S. flu death figures more PR than science?" at the British Medical Journal. He discovered that, Between 1979 and 2002, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data show an average 1348 flu deaths per year (range 257 to 3006)."

If you're wondering why the CDC would inflate the number of flu deaths, keep in mind that the more people they can frighten into getting their flu shot the greater profits for the vaccine manufacturers. If you believe the CDC's primary intention is to protect public health, you're wrong. Their goal seems more aligned with distorting disease data to convince more people that getting a flu shot makes sense. The CDC has an actual "recipe" for increasing flu shot demands. The ingredients include:

• Concern
• Anxiety
• Fear

The fact is, government organizations like the CDC work hand in hand with businesses to sell products."

Clearest perspective on flu deaths:

"To date, there have been no recorded cases of H5N1 in the U.S. And seasonal flu is a relatively minor problem in the U.S. compared to other illnesses. Each year, approximately 2.4 million Americans die from a variety of different causes. Yet many Americans have been led astray by the media hype. The headlines are preoccupying our minds with the bird flu pandemic at a completely disproportionate level."

Most would not even know about bird flu if it was not for the mass media spin....

"With television ads and newscasters telling us to get ready for a deadly pandemic, many people are now conveniently primed to take drugs such as Tamiflu. Because of the media, people are being conditioned to think that the only solution comes from the government or the corporations."

"Stories about the bird flu are not provided to help you, their intention is to scare you into to buying something."

"While the corporations increase their stranglehold on every media outlet and you are bombarded with stories about theoretical plagues," some very real epidemics are going on with almost no reporting at all. Two-thirds of Americans are overweight, seventy three million have diabetes or pre-diabetes, and eight million will come down with Alzheimer's by 2030 in the U.S. More than 1,300,000 new cancer cases and nearly 600,000 cancer deaths were expected in the United States in 2005, and in early 2005 it was announced that cancer passed heart disease as the top killer of Americans. Clearly, the conventional system of providing health news has not been effective at halting the progress of chronic degenerative diseases in the U.S.

With all of this news about health and nearly daily breakthroughs in medicine, why are so many people still suffering? And why does the United States pay more than $2 trillion dollars a year for "health care,"more than any other country in the world, and yet rank only forty-eighth in the world in life expectancy? Something is desperately wrong with this picture.

One has to ask If prescription drugs are so good, where are all the healthy drug takers?

Since the beginning of the last century, our food supply has changed dramatically, to processed, prepackaged food created and distributed primarily by large corporations. As our food supply has changed, our health has correspondingly deteriorated.

You may wonder just how the corporations have been able to get away with selling you sub-standard food. It's one thing for the media to "sell" these foods with their ads, but what about the supposedly authoritative reports we hear about the modern diet, and the science that is behind them? We're often told that "experts agree" and that "experts support" and that "experts declare" some new health insight.What the viewers should be asking themselves, though, is who funded the research that allows these "experts" to make these claims, and do these "experts" have any financial ties to the products they are promoting?"

One will never hear about the fact that a simple Vitamin C IV, UV blood irradiation and/or Oxidative therapies already can take care of any such pandemics should they occur...

...""Estimates of the environmental burden of disease revealed that, in developing countries, 85–90 percent of these deaths are attributable to the lack of safe water, sanitation and hygiene, i.e., an estimated total of about 700,000 deaths largely preventable if water and sanitation services were improved and basic rules of hygiene observed."

...any efforts to provide developing countries with clean water a "collective failure" and believes millions of lives could be saved if sanitation was improved. According to Dr. Aldis, "Water sources (surface, underground and piped) are regularly subject to bacterial contamination with only about 50 percent of all supplies meeting the national drinking water standards.""

Pandemics are more likely to occur from new pharma schemes then they would occur from natural consequences for example:

In examining the 1976 swine flu fiasco. "We should all be reminded about the side effects of the swine flu vaccine campaign. Several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barré Syndrome after they were injected with this vaccine. Even healthy twenty-year-olds ended up as paraplegics in wheelchairs. Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the swine flu vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for twenty-five deaths. But the swine flu pandemic itself never materialized.

The swine flu episode shows how difficult it is to forecast a pandemic and how damaging a rash response can be.More people died from the vaccine than died from the swine flu itself. See also: The Flu: 1918 And Now.

Investigative journalist Ida Honorof, credited by the Los Angeles Times and other publications with breaking some of the biggest stories of our time, called the political response to the swine flu panic the most brazen, obscene electioneering ploy" ever, adding that it was proposed by the president "and his coterie of scientific hacks, fabricated to cause pure unadulterated panic and guarantee political capital, rammed through without consideration of people's health and lives and approved by a band-wagon Congress" eager to make the nation's "health" a bipartisan concern."

This book finally blasts open all the doors, and when it hits the New York Times bestseller list is will FINALLY force these crucial issues into the mainstream media's spotlight.

Getting this book into everyone's hands can play a crucial role in taking down the perpetrators of these frauds and deceptions, As only a aware public can force a change. To this end Dr. Mercola has included a number of bonuses at The Great Bird Flu Hoax site in the hope to make this book New York Times bestseller list.

In this fascinating and well-researched and fully referenced 240-page hardcover book you'll discover:

How and why the media has deceived you about the bird flu (and why they're not talking about the far more serious threats to your health than any bird flu) ...

The real culprit in the spread of bird flu (hint: it's not the wild or migratory birds that are currently being blamed) ...

Who is really profiting the most from the bird flu panic (you will be quite surprised ... and you will learn why they are intent on misdirecting attention away from true public health issues) ...

How you can protect yourself and your family from any disease -- even the bird flu -- by simply and easily modifying your body's natural defense system ...

Why any bird flu vaccine is virtually guaranteed to fail (after billions of dollars are paid to certain key pharmaceutical giants just to stockpile worthless drugs) ...

How the bird flu scare is similar to previous alarms that never materialized (remember swine flu, Ebola, West Nile virus, SARS, anthrax and 'mad cow' disease?) ...

Find out how major meat and other food producers are using the threat of terrorism to enforce oppressive federal regulations to snuff out their small farm competition (if you allow this to proceed unchecked, you'll lose your ability to obtain truly healthy meat) ...

The devious "bag of tricks" big corporations use to distort the media (you'll see how they manipulate your view of reality so they can control your behavior to make the most profit) ...

The one common risk factor that nearly everyone infected with bird flu has (you probably don't have it, but they don't want you to know this) ...

How new legislation being pushed through by the big drug companies may be the consumer's worst nightmare (and may actually destroy the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution) ...

The MOST devious tricks corporations use to distort the media to manipulate your view of reality in their ongoing attempt to control your behavior for THEIR profit

And much, much more ...

Readers' Comments

From 1970 to 2006 the population of the US has grown by approx. 90 million people therefore it is logical that the rate of flu related deaths would climb. With the exception of a hyperlink to a bogus article you fail to mention the 1918 pandemic that killed millions worldwide. There are several good books covering these topics with science as opposed to the osteopathic hoax presented here.
