Health authorities in the United States and around the world are ramping up to wage an absolute war on the swine flu in the fall. While some are wondering why such massive preparations are needed for a disease that has only killed a few hundred people, others are wondering if government authorities know more than they are telling us.
As the WHO and the CDC continue to make stunning proclamations about the seriousness of the swine flu, the U.S. government is pulling out all the stops in order to get prepared. According to the Department of Defense, even the U.S. military plans to "assist" civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 swine flu virus this fall.
Just how does the U.S. military plan to "assist" civilian authorities? Will they be involved with vaccinations? After all, the World Health Organization is recommending mandatory swine flu vaccinations be administered in almost 200 different countries.
And it looks like a swine flu vaccine will be available in the fall - tested or not.
Vaccine manufacturers apparently plan to rely on a U.S. emergency declaration to use experimental additives made by GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis in their swine flu vaccines that many health experts are describing as potentially very dangerous.
But governments around the world seem to be ignoring any potential danger to rushing a vaccine out. In fact, the U.S. government is looking for several thousand volunteers to start rolling up their sleeves for the first swine flu shot trials.
And in a misguided effort to vaccinate as many people as possible before the winter begins, many European governments are saying that they will "fast-track" the testing of a swine flu vaccine.
But is rushing an experimental vaccine out to the public wise?
If you think that it should be rushed out, perhaps you should read "The Truth About The Flu Shot" by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny:
The reality is that vaccines are not nearly as safe as they are portrayed to be.
And the Washington Post has confirmed that the swine flu vaccine WILL contain mercury.
It is being recommended that kids get FOUR flu shots this fall. Are you certain that it is healthy for your kids to be shot full of mercury? If not, perhaps you should do some serious research.
In any event, health authorities around the world are clearly extremely concerned about this swine flu pandemic.
According to new estimates from the CDC, hundreds of thousands of Americans could die from the H1N1 swine flu over the next 2 years.
The World Health Organization is saying that the H1N1 pandemic is gaining speed. In fact, the WHO is estimating that 2 billion people will get the "swine flu" over the next 2 years.
That is approximately one-third of the people on earth.
Some cities are taking their preparations to bizarre extremes.
For example, the Exeter City Council says that it is actually considering using the catacombs under the city to store the corpses of deceased swine flu victims if the pandemic worsens.
Now, are there rational things that the average person can do to prepare for this fall and winter?
Some health experts are now claiming that Vitamin D is a "major weapon" against the swine flu. In fact, if you do some research there are a number of things you can do to boost your immune system, and there are a number of natural ways to fight the swine flu if you do end up catching it.
But perhaps the biggest danger is what will happen if this virus seriously mutates. For example, scientists are now starting to wonder what will happen when the H1N1 flu encounters the H5N1 flu.
Will it create a super flu?
Will it create a flu that is easily transmissible like H1N1 but that is super deadly like H5N1?
Nobody actually knows.
Make sure that you and your family are prepared for whatever happens.
