Today's British Medical Journal features an editorial on the bird flu in which
they state the following: The lack of sustained human-to-human transmission
suggests that this AH5N1 avian virus does not currently have the capacity
to cause a human pandemic.
While they do go on to say the virus could mutate with a influenza A virus
and has the potential to acquire the means for rapid human to human transmission,
it does NOT have this ability now. All the preparation and
fear being created in the media is about a theoretical speculation.
I am a former Boy Scout and fully believe in being prepared, but this is nothing
even close to following recommendations made by experts to New Orleans that
if implemented would have saved 1,000 lives, 500,000 homes and well over $100
billion from Hurricane Katrina.
No, this is all about creating fear and panic to benefit the drug companies.
Now, I am still not opposed to being prepared for this potential bird flu pandemic.
It is POSSIBLE it might materialize. But if it did, there is no way that the
flu vaccine or Tamiflu will mitigate its damage. No way!
If you want to know how to truly strengthen your immune system so will laugh
when the flu bug or nearly any other infectious agent seeks to infect you, then
start following the
Total Health Program or read the quick
tips I posted last year.
