Historically, flu samples collected around the world went to the CDC for genetic analysis, for use in developing treatments and vaccines. The CDC did
NOT share the genetic information with other nations, just with its Big Pharma partners.
So in 2007, Indonesia stopped sharing its flu samples - demanding fair access, transparency, and benefits-sharing. Indonesia is a hot spot for bird
flu viruses, but it took 4 years for the issues to be resolved.
In April 2011, Indonesia signed an agreement with the World Health Organization (WHO) to share viruses in return for access to the vaccines that are
developed from those viruses. The flu samples were shared.
THEN THINGS REALLY STARTED POPPING
Several research teams around the world started working with Indonesia's flu samples, and quickly determined that the mutant strains were close to
becoming airborne; by most accounts, the feared pandemic would soon become a reality.
On Aug. 29, 2011, the Food and Agriculture Organization sounded a mutation alarm - a new strain of the virus, dubbed H5N1-184.108.40.206, had surfaced in
wild and domestic bird populations in Vietnam.
* Mutant H5N1 strains appeared in Vietnam and China - and continue to surface in Indonesia
* Fouchier presented his "airborne H5N1" research at a flu conference, and said he planned to publish. Other labs, some in the USA including the CDC
also created airborne strains, but did NOT publish financially significant details.
NOTE: Open access publishing means
every flu scientist in the world would be on the same page, working with the same, accurate information - no
one would have a "competitive edge" - and Big Pharma would lose its stranglehold monopoly on "public health," previously protected by the
* Big Pharma's PR machine went into high gear. The campaign highlighted the dangers of accidental release, the potential for purposeful dispersion by
a "disgruntled employee" and bioterrorism The only goal was to prevent flu scientists' open access to scientific information through professional
publication, and protect Big Pharma's monopoly.
NOTE: On-salary scientists routinely create chemicals, compounds and biological products that are dangerous to public health - for their
Industrial corporations routinely
release chemicals, compounds and biological products that are dangerous to public
health into the environment, and
in consumer products. The only real difference is, salaried scientists are constrained by confidentiality
agreements, and do not expect their work to be published to benefit the public.
* The World Economic Forum (WEF) highjacked the chronic disease NCD Pandemic summit, claiming, "It's not a health issue, it's an economic issue."
According to the WEF, the NCD Pandemic will cost $47 Trillion by 2020.
So how is the NCD Pandemic related to flu pandemics?
Flu pandemics trigger chronic disease pandemics.
The media focuses on flu fatalities, but authorities know the deaths are just the tip of the iceberg. Flu infections cause inflammation; inflammation
triggers chronic disease and accelerates its progression; survivors don't die, but huge numbers face ongoing debilitation, disability and early
retirement; children born of infected mothers may have a variety of long-term health problems, depending on when they were infected during
development. Flu does NOT change peoples' DNA, but many of the adverse health effects are transmissible over several generations - the resulting
genetic diseases and "predispositions" appear
to be genetic, but are in fact "epigenetic" - epigenetic changes revert back to normal
if the causes are removed.
In short, long-term chronic disease pandemics follow flu pandemics, and can span generations. The world already
is in the middle of a chronic
disease NCD Pandemic; the social, cultural and economic costs already
Governments worry about the fatality rates from pandemic flu - but they're scared right poopless about the chronic disease burden, and the costs of
caring for survivors.
Global corporations want the "depopulation" effects of a flu pandemic - but don't want the costs of maintaining survivors to cut into their profits,
block corporate tax benefits or inhibit future bail-outs. So Big Pharma is fighting to kill "Open Access" science, while the WEF is strong-arming all
our nations in the same ways the IMF and World Bank control 'developing' nations - by focusing on the economics, demanding "anti"-social policies and
free rein to run the world according to "competitive" capitalist principles.
If the worlds' best scientists shared information openly and did their best with it, cooperatively, they might
solve the problems we face. But
as things stand, the scientific information that could save humanity is privately owned by Big Pharma: privately owned, and protected for profit -
even the information that could save humanity.
