Ok now this flu is supposed to be a new strain, deadly mixture of human, avian, and three swine strains right.
Remember my previous post i asked you to remember that the little boy that died in Texas died because his lungs were filled with fluid, well that's
what the victims in Mexico are dying from, severe pnuemonia believed to be caused by swine flu.
They say the other odd thing about this flu is that it effects young healthy people, the human flu usually kills infants and the elderly with weak
Now read about the 1918 pandemic commonly referred to as the "Spanish Flu"
"Most of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise
weakened patients. The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920"
"The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing
massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung."
"In others, the flu caused frequent loss of bowel control and the victim would die from losing critical intestinal lining and blood loss,"
There was referrence made to the victims in Mexico having extreme vomiting and diarhea.
"Among the conclusions of this research is that the virus kills via a cytokine storm (overreaction of the body's immune system) which explains its
unusually severe nature and the concentrated age profile of its victims. The strong immune systems of young adults ravaged the body, whereas the
weaker immune systems of children and middle-aged adults caused fewer deaths."
It uses your own immune system against you ?!
The pandemic of 1918 was caused by Influenza type A strain, subtype H1N1.
The similarities are just a little too much for me. Are we really being hit with a new super flu with many different strains combined in it, or is
this just the same "Spanish Flu" from 1918 ?
"Scientists have used tissue samples from frozen victims to reproduce the virus for study. Given the strain's extreme virulence there has been
controversy regarding the wisdom of such research."
They've been reproducing the virus
