Many people believe that the two most popular Antiviral drugs on the market, Tamiflu (Oseltamivir) and Relenza (Zanamivir) are safe treatments that may save their lives.
Due to the recent H1N1 "swine flu" scare, these drugs are being pushed harder than ever on the population. Many trust that it will save their lives.

However, this is not always the case, and you may expierence suffering or even death as a result of these treatments.

This is backed by real science and is not a theory or opinion, this is a Warning about the facts.

Both of these drugs are known as Neuraminidase inhibitors, and if you care I shall explain how it works. The goal of the chemical compound is to block the virus from reproducing by attacking it's neuraminidase protein, thus preventing the virus from escaping the host cell and infecting other cells.

These act against both Influenza A and B according to my sources.

They are being passed off as "highly effective" treatments for those whom contract influenza although this could not be further from the truth according to the evidence and research.

Do Antivirals cure the H1N1"Swine Flu"?

No- Antivirals like Tamiflu and Relenza do not cure anything, it is used to SLOW DOWN the development of the disease. You will not be cured, as this is only a treatment that slows down the virus.

Do Antivirals replace vaccines?
No- They are not vaccines.

Can Antivirals prevent Influenza infection?
Maybe. Both chemical compounds are known to have prophylactic qualities.

Dangers of Antivirals.

1) Relenza (Zanamivir)

Taken orally or inhaled, inhaled has the strongest effects.

Adverse side effects:

"Some patients have had bronchospasm (wheezing) or serious breathing problems when they used RELENZA. Many but not all of these patients had previous asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. RELENZA has not been shown to shorten the duration of influenza in people with these diseases. Because of the risk of side effects and because it has not been shown to help them, RELENZA is not recommended for people with chronic respiratory disease such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."

"Some patients have had breathing problems while taking RELENZA. This can be very serious and need treatment right away. Most of the patients who had this problem had asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but some did not. If you have trouble breathing or have wheezing after your dose of RELENZA, stop taking RELENZA and get medical attention.

In studies, the most common side effects with RELENZA have been headaches; diarrhea; nausea; vomiting; nasal irritation; bronchitis; cough; sinusitis; ear, nose, and throat infections; and dizziness. Other side effects that have been reported, but were not as common, include rashes and allergic reactions, some of which were severe."

GlaxoSmithKline is the pharma corp marketing Relenza.

Relenza has fewer side effects than Tamiflu therefore it appears much safer.
No influenza strains are known to have a resistance to Relenza, as it is rarely used.

2) Tamiflu (Oseltamivir)
Made by Roche. Oral tablet.

Beware, some strains of influenza are resistant to Tamiflu.

Adverse side effects:

"Common adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with oseltamivir therapy (occurring in over 1% of clinical trial participants) include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and headache. "

"Rare ADRs include: hepatitis and elevated liver enzymes, rash, allergic reactions including anaphylaxis, and Stevens-Johnson syndrome.[4][5] Various other ADRs have been reported in postmarketing surveillance including: toxic epidermal necrolysis, cardiac arrhythmia, seizure, confusion, aggravation of diabetes, and haemorrhagic colitis."

"There are concerns that oseltamivir may cause dangerous psychological, neuropsychiatric side effects including self harm in some users. These dangerous side effects occur more commonly in children than in adults.[13] This stems from cases in Japan, where the drug is most heavily prescribed, consuming 60% of the world's production[14]. Concern has focused on teenagers, but problems have also been reported in children and adults. [15]

In March 2007, Japan's Health Ministry warned that oseltamivir should not be given to those aged 10 to 19.[16] The Ministry had previously decided, in May 2004, to change the literature accompanying oseltamivir to include neurological and psychological disorders as possible adverse effects, including: impaired consciousness, abnormal behavior, and hallucinations.[14]

According to Japan's Health Ministry, between 2004 and March 2007,fifteen people aged 10 to 19 have been injured or killed by jumps or fallen from buildings after taking oseltamivir,and one 17-year-old died after he jumped in front of a truck"

Not only is it extremely dangerous to take, but it is prone to Tamiflu resistant Influenza strains as well due to its widespread use. Over 50million people have taken Tamiflu.

And for a more detailed explanation of Tamiflu's associated most dangerous adverse side effects.

"Hepatitis (plural hepatitides) implies injury to the liver characterized by the presence of inflammatory cells in the tissue of the organ."

"Anaphylaxis is an acute systemic (multi-system) and severe type I hypersensitivity allergic reaction in humans"

"Anaphylactic shock can lead to death in a matter of minutes if left untreated."
"An estimated 1.24% to 16.8% of the population of the United States is considered "at risk" for having an anaphylactic reaction if they are exposed to one or more allergens, especially penicillin and insect stings."

3)Steven-Johnson Syndrome
"Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a life-threatening condition affecting the skin in which cell death causes the epidermis to separate from the dermis."
"SJS proper (with less than 10% of body surface area involved) has the mortality rate of around 5%."
"Other outcomes include organ damage/failure, cornea scratching and blindness."

4)Toxic epidermal necrolysis
"Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), also known as Lyell's syndrome, is a life-threatening dermatological condition that is frequently induced by a reaction to medications.[1] It is characterized by the detachment of the top layer of skin (the epidermis) from the lower layers of the skin (the dermis) all over the body."
"There is broad agreement in medical literature that TEN can be considered a more severe form of Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and debate whether it falls on a spectrum of disease that includes erythema multiforme.[2][3] Some authors consider that there is an overlap between the two syndromes (usually between 10% and 30% of skin detachment).
The incidence is between 0.4 and 1.2 cases per million each year"
"The mortality for toxic epidermal necrolysis is 30-40 per cent"

5)Cardiac arrhythmia
"Cardiac arrhythmia (also dysrhythmia) is a term for any of a large and heterogeneous group of conditions in which there is abnormal electrical activity in the heart. The heart beat may be too fast or too slow, and may be regular or irregular.
Some arrhythmias are life-threatening medical emergencies that can result in cardiac arrest and sudden death."

6)haemorrhagic (bleeding) colitis
"Colitis is a chronic digestive disease characterized by inflammation of the colon.
Colitis is one of a group of conditions which are inflammatory and auto-immune, affecting the tissue that lines the gastrointestinal system (the large and small intestine). "

You have been Warned. If you take these chemical compounds you are playing Russian Roulette with your life. Be safe, be smart, be careful!

Have a look at Bioshield II and find out that -even if the drugs harm you- you cannot do anything about it, not sue not claim, nothing.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Bioshield II.

The bastards put everything in place for a nice pandemic, testing ground, bulk profit and mass killings all in one.

I have to admit. They are very very sly. Whenever I broach this coversation, give the facts and figures etc, even to my close friends...they look at me as if I am some nutjob. "The government is out to get me" type of scenario.

Really pisses me off. How the hell do we get past that then?! That instant reaction that people have against conspiricists and the such like?
