Hmmmmm let me just go over the facts...
Millions of people infected with swine flu... check.
500 deaths world wide to swine flu... check.
--500? Recheck your facts buddy. www.cdc.gov...
Same amount affected each year by seasonal flu... check.
--Wrong, infection rate is 10 fold seasonal flu
100,000+ deaths world wide to seasonal flu... wait a minute...
-Flu season just begun buddy, those are year long numbers, we still have the highest infectious months ahead. We will far surpass 100,000+ deaths world wide (I'm pretty sure we are a lot closer to that number now than the WHO would like to admit)
Why has oprah never decided to hype the seasonal flu? It's been killing exponentially larger amounts of people, year after year, decade after decade. Yet no oprah show. No hours upon hours of daily media coverage.. WTF???
-Oprah doesnt hype seasonal flu because we have all been exposed to seasonal flu champ. Almost none of us have antibodies against this new strain, but what do I know, I'm just a microbiologist right?
Maybe it's cause "swine flu" is such a catchy name.
--No actually its not 'swine flu' at all, its H1N1.
Alright, well I am going to take a potentially lethal vaccination now, which could give me the flu itself (purpose defeated). OR, the swine flu could mutate, making all vaccines based on other versions pointless (purpose defeated)...
--If it was potentially lethal, which would've been exhibited in the multiple animal studies performed pre-release, the vaccine never would have been given the green light.
0.0005% chance to die from swine flu, and thats only one a "1,000,000" infected calculation. The actual number is in the multiple millions. In fact, they have quit testing specifically for swine flu ALL TOGETHER. That's how big a non issue is.
--I don't know where you got this number from but its completely, and utterly wrong.
Now to wrap up this entire fluffy cake.
--Please, wrap it up with more PROPAGANDA! please
No mass produced, and mass used vaccination has been as safe as 0.0005%, and keep in mind that was an extremely low estimate.
--Vaccines pretty much are that safe, H1N1 might not be AS safe, but is still well in the green of the safe-o-meter.
Let's not even begin to mention the fact that this is a rushed vaccine, without proper, thorough testing.
--Ummm, thorough testing has been performed. See previous point.
So you go try your luck, i'll pray I don't fall into that 0.0005%.
