Swine Flu Epidemic Dropping off - NewsGrabs Monday, 2 November 2009

Amid all the disastrous swine flu news, here is a different point of view to consider: "I would like to point out that S. and myself published on the effective technology of Washing hands about 3 years back. We also predicted the failure of all the "approved" technologies.

Now! I have good news. The Flu epidemic is OVER folks. It will be a memory before the vaccinations get a chance to work. Within the next 3 weeks the epidemic will be reduced to a mere 15% fraction of its current level. It has already spiked over and is rapidly dropping off. You can get the facts by Google (Key Words: Flu, Map). Once the spike drops it is over folks. The Vaccine wagon has sailed into ineffective status.

The other good news is that despite the fairly high rates of infection mortality has been trivial. Deaths from the Flu have not reached even marginally the levels normal for "seasonal flu." We may still get the "seasonal flu" this winter but I suspect not. Track the deaths for yourself if you want but normally the flu kills between 35,000 and 65,000 a year in the USA. We are no where near on trend for 5,000 dead yet and the epidemic is dropping off."

This quote is from a friend in the US... don't take it as gospel, but start watching for news that would confirm or deny this development.

Swine Flu Update – Epidemic hysteria revisited (PDF)
If someone told you that 98 to 99% of people diagnosed with swine flu actually did not have it, you would probably say they were misguided or had simply lost their senses. However, that is what a 3 month CBS investigation found, just published three days ago, on October 21, 2009. Furthermore, in 86 to 93% of these "probable" or "presumed" swine flu cases, regular seasonal influenza did not cause the symptoms, either. The vast majority of people diagnosed with the swine flu today most likely have a viral syndrome similar to the common cold.

Unfortunately, good news about the swine flu is a topic that people do not want to hear about. That is why it does nothing to generate ratings, sell newspapers, or sell vaccines, and, therefore, is widely ignored. It is also unfortunate that the fear and anxiety created by this campaign undermines people's health, probably having a greater impact on public health than the swine flu, itself. When subjected to chronic stress and anxiety, it is hard for people to get through routine illnesses, and makes it more likely that a routine illness will turn into a severe illness.

Bird flu, influenza and 1918: The case for mutant avian tuberculosis
Traditionally, ''flu'' does not kill. Experts, including Peter Palese of the Mount School of Medicine in Manhattan, remind us that even in 1992, millions in China already had antibodies to H5N1, meaning that they had contracted it and that their immune system had little trouble fending it off.

Dr. Andrew Noymer and Michel Garenne, UC Berkely demographers, reported in 2000 convincing statistics showing that undetected tuberculosis may have been the real killer in the 1918 flu epidemic.

Video: WHO 'spins' pandemic: Does vaccine actually spread the flu?
WHO states it wants to 'spin' the influenza pandemic to maintain political interest so that governments will want to invest in vaccine production and stockpile vaccines.:

19 October 2007
WHO HQ, Geneva, Switzerland - A major risk factor is the underlying assumption that there will in fact be a pandemic. If there is not a pandemic within the next five years, there may be loss of interest and political awareness, and other public health needs may shift investment away from pandemic influenza. Therefore, it is critical to identify the best possible strategy to maintain political commitment.

"The main priorities for WHO for the year 2008 should be to choose the appropriate spin to be placed on the business plan in association with the right marketing strategy. WHO also needs to establish a detailed operational plan and to define financial resources i.e. donors, countries, and other stakeholders."

German doctors refuse to be bullied by authorities into giving "swine flu" jab
Fredrich Hoffmann, the head of Germany's national vaccine commission, has told doctors that they should give the untested "swine flu" jab to their patients no matter what their opinion about it might be, but German doctors are refusing to bow down and be bullied.

Dr Jürgen Seefeldt, a specialist in internal medicine from Paderborn, sent an open letter to the Dr Susanne Stöcker, an official from the German drug regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute, pointing out the reason why her statement in the media that the "swine flu" jab was not risky was an "infamous lie".

Seefeldt systematically lists the dangers of squalene and mercury citing relevant scientific literature. He also notes that these toxic ingredients are not necessary for making a vaccine.

Switzerland restricts use of GlaxoSmithKline swine flu vaccine
The regulatory authority Swissmedic said it had received data on the vaccine for adults, but not for pregnant women and very little data for children.

"For this reason, Swissmedic has not yet authorised the administration of Pandemrix to pregnant women, children under the age of 18 and adults over 60," the regulator said in a statement.

Pandemrix was one of two vaccines approved by European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in September.

More than half of Chinese 'don't want swine flu shot'
But only 30 percent of those polled by the China Daily said they definitely would like to receive the shot. About 15 percent said they would make a decision based on what other people did.

Researchers Link Low-Level Mercury Exposure, Zinc Deficiency and Learning Disorders
Child learning and behavioral disorders are on the rise. Increasingly, diet-related factors like synthetic food dyes, mercury contamination and mineral deficiencies are being linked to these problems.

It has long been known, for example, that mercury may bioaccumulate in the brain if not eliminated from the body, and that mercury is toxic to young, developing brains even at minute levels of exposure. It also has been acknowledged that dietary zinc is an essential mineral for maintaining the metabolic processes required to remove mercury from the body.

Less recognized, however, is evidence that diets including high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and other food additives may also lead to deficiencies in zinc and other trace minerals in humans.

Low Vitamin D Levels Linked to Renal Failure
Low levels of vitamin D may account for nearly 60 percent of the elevated risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in African Americans, according to a report in the December Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN). "Our study adds to previous evidence linking vitamin D deficiency to the progression of kidney disease and the need for dialysis," comments Michal L. Melamed, MD, of Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY). "It also explains a fair amount of the increased risk of ESRD in African Americans."

EU - Poland: Food supplements industry attempts to tackle "borderline" products problem
The Polish Council for Supplements and Nutritional Foods (KRSiO) on 23 October submitted a legislative proposal that amends several provisions of the Food and Nutrition Safety Act regarding the classification of products as medicines vs. food supplements. The move is a last-ditch attempt by the industry to avoid potentially damaging effects of what it says is a flawed transposition of an EU directive specifying which food supplements may be sold in Europe, due to take effect on 1 January 2010.

Putin's Proposed Reform Worries Drug Producers
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has promised to ban pharmaceutical makers from sending representatives to doctors' offices, a practice they spend up to 50 percent of their revenue on and one of the last open channels for companies to promote prescription drugs.

"We should get rid of these so-called pharmaceuticals representatives working in medical institutions," Putin said Oct. 9 at a meeting on the development of the drugs industry. In the past 10 years, Russia has seen the rise of "a clearly abnormal type of interaction" between medicine producers, particularly foreign companies, and parts of the medical community, he said.

It is impermissible to have "pharmaceutical holdings paying specialists to prescribe patients substances produced by these companies," Putin said.

Participatory Medicine as Revolution! Think Critically! Communicate!
To alienate patients from their own decision making is to change them into objects.

Patients, having adopted guidelines of their health care provider and internalized his images, are fearful of freedom. Freedom would require them to eject this image and replace it with autonomy and responsibility.

Patients suffer from duality; the conflict lies in choice between…following prescriptions or having choices; between being spectators or actors.

Journal of Participatory Medicine Launches at Connected Health
Patient engagement and patient empowerment are popular topics, with hundreds of thousands of Google hits, but there's precious little information on how to do them well. A new academic journal being launched this week, the Journal of Participatory Medicine, aims to change that.

Participatory Medicine is a new approach that encourages and expects active patient involvement in all aspects of care. It builds on the work documented at the blog, whose slogan is "Because health professionals can't do it alone." The group's landmark 2007 paper "E-Patients: How They Can Help Us Heal Healthcare" tells many stories of engaged, empowered e-patients who substantially improved their own outcome and the outcomes of others by supplementing or even going beyond what their physicians alone could do.

World Health Organization (WHO) says cell phones can cause brain cancer
The study, which focused on three types of brain cancer and tumors of the parotid gland, found a significant increase in cancer after a decade or more of cell phone use.

When a cell phone tower connects with a cell phone, electromagnetic radiation is created. When the cell phone is held against the ear, this radiation penetrates the brain.

Health study links mobile phone use to four kinds of cancer
The research, which has taken 10 years and cost £20million, found that heavy mobile users suffered up to 50 per cent more tumours. Scientists now say there is a "significantly increased risk" of people developing three different kinds of brain tumour and one of the salivary gland.

Alasdair Philips, of campaign group Powerwatch, said: "Mobile companies hide the figures on how much radiation they give off in the back of manuals.

"But modern phones give out 217 electromagnetic pulses every minute into your head. Primary school children should not have them, secondary school children should be encouraged to text rather than call, and males should not keep them in a pocket because they drastically affect fertility."

This should read 217 electromagnetic pulses per second, because that is the frequency with which "packets" of data are sent, which are then decoded at the receiving end. So we not only have microwaves at a frequency of one or more gigahertz (billions of cycles per second) but a very low frequency component as the on-off frequency of sending packets of information. Apparently it is the low frequency component of cell phone radiation that can interfere with biological processes, making mobile phone technology a great but still not exactly quantified health risk.

Do Terahertz Waves Tear Apart DNA?
… Great things are expected of terahertz waves, the radiation that fills the slot in the electromagnetic spectrum between microwaves and the infrared. Terahertz waves pass through non-conducting materials such as clothes , paper, wood and brick and so cameras sensitive to them can peer inside envelopes, into living rooms and "frisk" people at distance.

Alexandrov and co have created a model to investigate how THz fields interact with double-stranded DNA and what they've found is remarkable. They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.

AstraZeneca Pays $520M To Settle Seroquel Probes
This was predictable. After Lilly and, more recently, Pfizer settled long-running investigations into off-label marketing practices of their various drugs - notably, antipsychotics - it was expected that AstraZeneca would follow suit. And so AstraZeneca has agreed to pay $520 million to settle two federal investigations and two whistleblower lawsuits over its Seroquel antipsychotic.

What's wrong with this picture? To me, it seems like nothing changes. There is no "death penalty" for corporations, so as long as they can make more money from illegal activities than it costs them to settle, they will continue to do so, no matter the rethoric:

An AstraZeneca spokesman says the drugmaker "is committed to strong, effective compliance programs, both in the U.S. and globally, to embed a culture of ethics and integrity in all our business practices. It has been and remains a key goal."

Psychiatric Drugs & Suicides in Sweden 2007
investigation by Janne Larsson
There is no reason to believe that the reporting system for adverse drug events work
better in other countries. The catastrophic state of these "surveillance systems"
makes it possible to keep destructive drugs on the market year after year. All it takes
is for pharmaceutical companies to show that many persons have been exposed to
these drugs, and that almost no adverse event reports have been submitted; the
drugs must be "safe and effective".

This example from Sweden shows that in 338 cases persons committed suicide after
having been prescribed psychiatric drugs – and none of these cases were reported
to the registry for adverse drug events. Instead of Eli Lilly claiming that the drug
Zyprexa was involved in 0 cases of suicide in Sweden 2007, the fact was that the
drug was involved in 52 cases in this subgroup of 338 persons. Instead of Wyeth
claiming the same for Effexor, the fact was that the drug was involved in 41 cases in
this group.

USA: Amgen Pharmaceuticals Sued By 15 States Over Kickbacks
The companies encouraged health care providers to bill third-party payers such as Medicaid for free Aranesp in hopes of taking business away from Johnson & Johnson's Procrit. Amgen also conspired with INN and ASD Healthcare to provide sham consultant agreements, weekend retreats and other services to get them to purchase and prescribe Aranesp.

"Drugs should be prescribed to patients on the basis of need, effectiveness, and safety, not on a corporate giant's promise of an all-expense paid vacation. In an egregious violation of the law, Amgen allegedly bribed medical providers and left taxpayers footing the bill for free drug samples," Cuomo says in a statement.

The Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex: A Deadly Fairy Tale
When we speak of the pharmaceutical industry complex, it does not refer solely to private drug manufacturers. The complex, like a Matrix that holds captive the health of the nation in medical slavery by its own design and manipulation, is a consortium, a spiders' web woven with financial attachments throughout the medical profession. In addition to the pharmaceutical and medical device firms, this complex includes every government health agency...

If any one of us committed manslaughter, we would be behind bars instead of walking a crimson carpet into the offices of our elected officials in the Congress and Senate or past the gates guarded by the nation's Cerberus, Rahm Emmanuel, to lobby the White House. Yet if we are a pharmaceutical executive, or a lobbyist representing a drug company who has collected a litany of charges including medical fraud, criminal salesmanship, gaming the insurance industries, repeated lying to federal officials, and manipulation of data regarding life-threatening adverse effects of drugs that have killed so many people, we can walk away with a fine, a surge in the stock market after a settlement, a financial bonus, and the personal satisfaction in not having to apologize so we can continue business as usual.

US: House Health Care Bill Contains MOTHERS Act
Minus the original bill's prologue about depression in new moms, much of the Act's provisions are in the House bill, but with slightly softened language. Postpartum depression screening is no longer, in essence, mandatory but is now something that "may" be included in a national education campaign for health professionals and the public. The bill also calls for research on the causes and treatments for PPD, studies of differences in PPD between different ethnicities, "[t]he development of improved screening and diagnostic techniques, Clinical research for the development and evaluation of new treatments."

So that ought to make Big Pharma and the Act's proponents happy.

If you'd like to know what the Mothers Act is all about, here are three articles by Evie Pringle.
