I don't know why, if "they" wanted to kill us, they would do it with a shot. LOTS of people don't like to take shots when they really really need them, lots of people would not volunteer for this. Besides I understand "they" can make any type of bacteria or poison into an airborne form.
No makee sense.

Hopefully somebody will be coming up with some antidotes, things we can do to withstand the flu. It causes the lungs to bleed and people smother in their own blood. Something to stem the blood flow? Some vitamin or herb? Maybe comfrey which is a fast healer? I don't know, but it's something we should be prepared for.
Does Korean sour kraut cure avian influenza? Curing sick birds inflected with avian influenza would be the best way to halt the spread of H5N1. South Korean researchers at Seoul National University may just stumbled upon a cure. A traditional Korean cabbage dish called Kimchi may hold the answer. Any veteran who has been to South Korea will tell you that “Kimchi is a spicy hot sour kraut on steroids and best consumed with vast quantities of strong drink.” Kimchi is basically salted Chinese Napa cabbage, garlic, radishes, onions, and carrots in a fish sauce that has been allowed to ferment. In an initial study, South Korean researchers fed Kimchi to 13 chickens infected with avian influenza and after a week 11 of them started to recover. It is interesting to note that in Central Europe sour kraut has been a folk cure for illness for centuries. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has repeatedly stated until further studies are done they caution against claims that Kimchi or sour kraut can cure the “bird flu.” Nevertheless, the researchers claimed that the lactic enzyme found in fermented cabbage seems to possess curative properties in combating the virus in domestic poultry. Due to the internet, word of the study has spread worldwide and the Washington Post ran an article of the study resulting in sales of bottles of Kimchi has jumped by 20% in recent months.

I've heard that extreme doses of vitamin C is the cure. Sorry don't have a source, and don't have the time to search it right now, but will edit later and include a link, hopefully.
The immediate cure........
Don't take the vaccine!

as far as faith, trust and all that go, even reading the bible, you can be in a garage, but that doesnt make you a car. sooo. you can read the bible, go to church, have faith, but from what i understand, not following the bible to the finest details will not make you heaven worthy after weve been struck by bird-flu. or any other pandemic that wipes us out.
You are 100% right. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
You have to believe God sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. It may be hard for some but then thats where faith steps in. Its hard because you can't see Jesus, science hasn't proved him to be real(I think). So you have to have faith.
I don't know if it was accidently found in 96. I will research some more. Here ia a wiki link en.wikipedia.org...

Flu shots are normally given in October or November. For anyone to push flu shots in the "off season" is just stupid -- nobody will get one.
Auctually my daughters school was giving out Flu vaccines in a mist form a month ago FREE for the studendts, parents and siblings and people were lined up to get em.

I bet you are 100% right about that!

pI will tell you this interesting tidbit--my significant other works for a major drug company. I won't name it, but let's call it SmackoKissMine. Anyway, they sent out a notice to all employees requesting them to get a prescription for Relenza and return it to the company. The company will then HOLD that many doses in storage for employees and their families. The notice went out in mid-2007 and then again last month. This company is one that's supposedly working on the H5N1 vaccine. What do they know that would prompt them to do that? It ain't cheap to make and store tens of thousands of doses of Relenza. It gave me the heebie-jeebies.

First of all, I very much doubt that anyone could just go to their doc and get a Rx for Rolenza. I'm pretty sure that this drug has some serious side affects and that no doctor will just give it to you just because your boss told you to get it and bring it to work.
Second: If this woman's SO's company makes the bird flu vaccine then why the heck would they be trying to stockpile antiviral meds made by another company? All they'd care about would be selling their product, i.e. the vaccine.
I really love stories that include 'someone on here said'
