I'm sorry. Your article doesn't make sense in the details. I actually agree with one part about some viruses being important to human health for "cleaning out" the system - or at least I think that we've adapted to have a use for them. However, I limit that to Noroviruses since our body doesn't develop immunity to them.

A detail that should make your spidey senses tingle - how do you think a person would survive well with vomiting, diarrhea, if they drink little and consume nothing else? Shouldn't that trigger you to realize that you'd become severely dehydrated? That a parent following that would have a good chance of having a dead child? How is it that this doesn't trigger an alert in your head that the person writing this either doesn't have a clue, or is actively promoting things that will kill you or a loved one?

See, this is what really pisses most poeple off here that do lengthy investigations and post data. I only posted snippets from the ENTIRE 50 page article found at the link above. READ THE WHOLE DAMN ARTICLE AND EDUCATE YOURSELF!!! See some people here go out of their way to research and re-research there findings and then post here. Other people here only want to read tidbits and FEEL like they are informed and intelligent. Bullocks, wake up and read the whole thing!!!!!!!!

With all the news about the WHO looking into one respected geneticists claims that the No Bueno Flu originated in a lab, I wanted to stop for a second and point out that a few of us were posting that fact close to a month ago. (That CDC researchers and other insiders were seeing some indications of a man-made origin).

Regardless of what the WHO decides to feed the press I've reached my own conclusion.

It looks like the ATS thread beat the media by a huge margin on this one.

Ok its been 2 weeks + now since this broke on the news and based on all the previous posts and the time lag between infection and hospitisation/death we should start finding out soon how dangerous this wave is. I believe we in the northern hemisphere should be 'relatively' safe for the next few months due to it being summer here but down south we will get a taster of what it will be like here in 5 months or so.

Figures still all over the place so will be difficult to tell though.

See this map for instance www.h1n1.name...

It's showing NZ as having 175 cases suspected/confirmed.

Mycoplasma has nothing to do with this, right?

Wow, since we are on a Conspiracy site......

I have two pet rats, little girls. We are fighting very hard to overcome Myco!!

Every rat not born in sterile environment, from a sterile mom, usually C-Section, is infected with Myco.

If this flu reacts at all with the same Mycoplasma.... Rats would spread the plague, again. Easily.

Interesting..


Prepare for 'excess deaths', ban travel, postpone Euro elections.
A secret battle plan to tackle swine flu is warning Britain must be ready for a wave of "excess" deaths.
And the plans, shown to the Cabinet's emergency Cobra committee yesterday, reveal that doctors are looking at 437 possible cases - seven times the official confirmed number of 68.....

Thailand confirms first two flu cases






Thailand yesterday confirmed its first two cases of influenza type A (H1N1) in patients who had returned from Mexico, becoming the 31st country to be hit by the virus so far.





"There were two confirmed cases of type A (H1N1), both of them contracted in Mexico," he said. "These persons are now well, not sick, without fever. They are now in a normal condition after undergoing a five-day antiviral regimen. The patients have fully recovered and returned home."





The Health Ministry no longer needs to send samples to the US for confirmation.

The fact that half of the severe cases have no fever like all other flu really bothers me. I can't understand why

I've been watching the obits in a regional Iowa newspaper for possible flu cases. Today two obits are for women in their mid 50's who died of a brief or sudden illness. Another obit is too new to have details but the woman was 48. There were also two men, both aged 56, one who died after a brief illness, and one who died while planting corn. There were 15 obits in total. Source: Cedar Rapids Gazette

When you are young and sick, your parents decide when to get you medical help. By the time you reach middle age, you decide for yourself. When my mom was 50 back in 1974, she caught the flu from other family members. She woke up sick at about 6:30 A.M. She became more and more ill as the day wore on. Against her protestations, my dad took her to the hospital in mid-afternoon. By 6:30 P.M., she had been given the wrong med and she died.

As usual, sorry if I'm late with the information


www.google.com...

MEXICO CITY (AP) — With swine flu still spreading, the U.N. health agency is warning countries to limit their use of antiviral drugs to only high-risk patients to ensure adequate supplies in case the virus should mutate and become more dangerous.

The global outbreak appears mild, but skittishness is evident. Not long after Switzerland lifted its advisory against travel to Mexico and the United States on Tuesday, the Japanese national women's soccer team canceled a tour to North America, where most swine flu cases have been reported.



The World Health Organization said Tuesday that antiviral drugs should be given to only patients most at risk.

Its comments appeared aimed at European countries, which have been using antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu and Relenza much more aggressively than the U.S. and Mexico, administering them whenever possible in an attempt to contain the virus before it spreads more widely.

Officials from EU and Latin American nations, including Mexico, were meeting in Prague on Wednesday to discuss ways of combating the threat.

That article seems kinda strange. THey say they raised to level 5.

Thanks for that info novacs4me. That is kind of scary as I am also in Iowa. I hope that soon the PTB will start giving us the true numbers.... but I doubt they ever will.
