Swine Flu Vaccine Concerns

What is the Swine Flu? We know that it spreads among people easily and is affecting younger people disproportionately. We also know that a number of people, many with underlying health conditions, have died from this virus.

This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and avian genes and human genes. Scientists call this a “quadruple reassortant” virus.

With a swine flu vaccine expected to be ready in October, the debate over mass vaccination of children has been rapidly growing. The panic which occurred over the swine flu might soon be even more dangerous than the virus itself. The infected persons are shunned as if they have the plague. We are bombarded with new information about
the number of deaths every day and millions from “slim” state budgets have been transferred to the accounts of pharmaceutical companies which produce the vaccine for the “lethal” flu.

In addition, according to information from alternative media, the U.S. government has given immunity to Baxter, the main manufacturer of Tamiflu. According to this document, the company will not be held responsible if the swine flu shot harms someone. Is there something they are not telling us?

While that video may be entertaining to view, the subject matter is definitely nothing to be taken lightly. If the big pharmaceutical companies have their way, we could be forced to be vaccinated to avoid being shunned in society. We need to arm ourselves with more information - the kind of information that the big pharma companies keep suppressing from the public by convincing the governments that what they have are the "only safe choice" there is. But that's not the complete truth. We know there are risks with these "approved" drugs and vaccines. But how can we decide if those risks are truly worth it if no one wants to look at and weigh those risks against any possible risks of using alternative medicines such as herbal products?

Before you decide on vaccinating yourself or members of your family against this new strain of influenza with a vaccine that has not yet proven its worth, please take the time to read this article found on the Natural News website. We have natural health choices. The article can explain them all to you.
