I still fill as though theres a connection between Xenotransplantation and the swine flu showing up in humans in Mexico City. Rafael Valdes of the Children's Hospital of Mexico in Mexico City has been doing this since 2001 when he transplanted pig cells into 12 children to try and cure diabetic children. He did this as a rogue doctor becuase the rest of the world warned against this due to swine flu type viruses could jump from human to pig pig to human. They perform these Xenotransplantations without rejection from the human host by altering the white blood cells of the human so the white blood cells do not attack the foriegn pig tissue introduced in there body. There by allowing the pig cells with natural pig diseases to enter and mix with human cells. This current out break I believe shows that this has now happened and humans could now become suspetable to all pig diseases if or when they catch this new swine flu for the new dna change which would occur would unlock all the diseases pigs carry to every human infected with the new h1n1 virus creating a unimaginable health crisis.

Heres a youtube video if you fast forward to around 4 minutes you will find the section speaking about my theroy above.
Xenografts -- Alternative Transplants
Heres a link to Campaign for Responsible Transplantation (CRT) memo talking about Rafael Valdes and his rogue Xenotransplantations.

Found this article posted 34 mins ago :

Swine flu: the worst is yet to come in autumn, warns Alan Johnson

EXCERPT :
Doctors are being warned to prepare for a second, "much worse" wave of swine flu hitting Britain in the autumn, the Health Secretary has disclosed.

EXCERPT :

He said that previous pandemics had been characterised by a "second phase"

"This is a new virus, it has never been seen before," he told the BBC.

"People talk about Sars and bird flu, and that was never the subject of a WHO alert, and we are now at stage five of an alert.

"Our evidence from all previous pandemics is you get two phases. So you get a first wave which is often very mild and then you get a much more serious wave that comes along in the autumn and the winter.

"So we have to not just deal with this outbreak now but prepare perhaps for a second phase further down the line."

The virus will sustain itself, adapt and survive during the warm months and return.

We could have an entire summer involving a state of emergency.

Another rather sobering article , this time from the Telegraph, exploring the parallels of 1918 to this new virus and what we can potentially expect. Some interesting insights from scientists included :

Swine Flu : How Afraid Should we Be ?

EXCERPT:

Pandemics are the viral equivalent of perfect storms. In order to trigger an event on the scale of 1918, three things have to happen. First, a new influenza virus – one against which people have no or few antibodies – has to emerge from a “hidden” animal reservoir. Second, the virus has to make people sick. Both these conditions have already been met by the new H1N1 sub-type from Mexico. The third thing that needs to happen is that the virus must be able to spread efficiently between people, preferably via a cough, sneeze or handshake.

EXCERPT:

And then, as now, the first cases occurred in the spring, a highly unusual time of year for an outbreak in the northern hemisphere.
The last observation is particularly worrying and explains why scientists have been advising governments to activate their pandemic plans now, rather than waiting for the WHO to declare a level-six alert – the formal signal that a pandemic has started.

EXCERPT:

Once epidemiologists have a better handle on the true level of infections in Mexico and whether the deaths reported so far are due to H1N1 and not some other strain of flu, or even bacterial pneumonias, we will also be in a better position to gauge the attack rate and in which direction the virus is evolving. There is even a possibility that Mexican H1N1 could recombine with H5N1 when it reaches south-east Asia, thus becoming both highly transmissible and highly pathogenic, a combination that surely would be a formula for “Armageddon”.

That's my thinking too. You sound entirely convinced though , can I ask why you are so sure ? Just curious

It is the definition of a pandemic. The virus literally has to stop and sustain itself within the human population, as a pathogen, it must adapt to us.

So they do acknowledge that there is a possibility that H5N1 and H1N1 can mutate together?.... disturbing thought.

Notice who is most effected.

Children. Majority of cases are within the child or adolescent population. The adult population is vitally untouched.

Ask yourself why.

He HX,

I feel i have lived through the Yellowstone disaster and the finacial collapse that destroyed the world as we know it (??) alongside you and i must say that this gives me somewhat of a reassuance that once again we meet in an ATS Big Threat talking about certain doom.....

Ain't live great!!!

Thanks for the suggestion on The Stand, i had it lying around here somewere and i spend a most enjoyable evening watching this masterpiece.

No need for the "sorry" 'cause if we are really gonna go down this i wish it to be ATS style with lots of info and a humorous sidenote....keep 'm coming!!

Peace

Ps: Star for the post and sorry for the typos..(as always, i will not correct them)

This is something that has me greatly concerned. This is absolutely unusual in every read I have done on this from all sorts of sources, one of the most curious things about this virus.

What are your thoughts on this?

Patient Zero was a child.

I am no expert of viruses or their genetic make up, but I do not believe a virus can mutate with a certain genetic could and attack a certain age group. Therefore, conspiracy view point, population control and possible reduction.

If the adults naturally die and a significant percentage of children cannot replace them, who does? No one.

The film, and fantastic novel, Children of Men. The plot is simple, the world population is rapidly reducing. Why?

No children.

Are you and your sources convinced "This is the big one" ?
With all the 1918 parallels - the 3 conditions being met, the age groups being targetted, it beginning out of season etc....it seems like it is.

Is it almost a given that when it stops it WILL adapt to us and therefore return more aggressively ...and lethally ? Or is it equally possible it will get weaker ?

Has there ever been a similar virus outbreak that shared these SAME parallels with 1918 but FAILED to adapt well so became weaker rather than stronger ?
