Really, what’s next about the Swine Flu?

From MSNBC this week- http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32863511/ns/health-swine_flu/
Swine flu deaths show this flu is different. H1N1 virus ‘looks like avian flu on steroids,’ expert says.

The last sentence of the article which notes the difference in the veracity of H1N1 in attacking patient lungs, is this little tidbit:

Ruiz-Palacios also said the new virus can be found in the urine and feces of patients, something that may affect how it spreads.

The effect that may affect how it spreads, is the fact that we all go to the bathroom.  Everyone of us. 

Public bathrooms are notorious for filth, but even the cleanest restrooms of the fancy Vegas hotels are laden with invisible germs.  I mean, how do you go to the bathroom without touching the door and then maybe the stall? 

Sanitized for your protection, my ass.

The episode from the Soprano’s comes to mind about Paulie Walnuts Gualtieri shoelaces. “Even if you keep your shoes tied, and your laces aren’t dragging through urine….then Silvio eating his lunch- SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!” So I can’t stand touchin fuckin’ shoelaces.”  something like that anyways.

Charles Gerba, Ph.D., co-author of “The Germ Freak’s Guide to Outwitting Colds and Flu,” suggests some of her advice seems panicky, like the suggestion to exit a public restroom stall immediately after flushing, since “fecal matter” can fly 20 feet into the air when flushed (“Better to Flush and Rush than Feel the Gush”).http://www.amazon.com/Germ-Freaks-Guide-Outwitting-Colds/dp/0757303277

I am going to be moving a little faster out of the stall.

How about touching the sink handles after the person in front of you just took a crap.  Or the soap dispenser?  Back out the door? 

Don’t even get me started on the grocery stores or restaurant menus.

Aw piss on it.  I’ve got a good immune system and I am sure as hell not going to make it all day without going to the the bathroom and I am not the boy in the bubble.   

Cheers to hoping our body’s immune systems don’t go ape shit and kill us, because I am not getting a seasonal or a Swine Flu Shot- EVER. Piss on that.

btw for whatever it’s worth- In a 2007 University of Florida study, people who took a 450-milligram green-tea supplement twice a day for 3 months had a third fewer days of cold symptoms. Try Immune Guard ($30 for 60 pills, www.immune-guard.us).

unclesamwarPardon me, but wake the fu(k up.  We are at war and the Obama Administration is busy signing tobacco legislation giving the government control over yet another industry.  Arggh.

In an interview broadcast on Monday evening by CBS, Mr. Obama said: “This administration – and our military – is fully prepared for any contingencies.” 

The North Korean regime said last week that it could fire a missile toward Hawaii on or shortly after July 4, which is U.S. Independence Day. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/barackobama/5600854/Barack-Obama-US-fully-prepared-for-North-Korea-missile-launch.html

Unacceptable fireworks, to say the least.  North Korea test-fired a similar long-range missile on July 4, 2000 but it failed just seconds after liftoff.

The Homeland Security Advisory System is designed to guide our protective measures when specific information to a particular sector or geographic region is received.  It remains at high or orange with two more levels to go until the shit would really hit the fan. Don’t you feel secure?  http://www.dhs.gov/xinfoshare/programs/Copy_of_press_release_0046.shtm  Meanwhile a flu pandemic has been declared by WHO .

What does it take to raise the threat level in the U.S.? North Korea is ready to launch a missile toward Hawaii or Alaska, Iran is out of control, Swine Flu is spreading with the UK Telegraph reporting half the population could be infected and yet,  our threat level remains the same.  This isn’t Halloween and Orange should not be the flavor of the day for American’s safety.

22 June 2009 07:00 GMT, the breakdown of the number of laboratory-confirmed cases is given in the following table and map from http://www.pandemicflu.gov/ updated today shows more than 52,000 cases with nearly half of them occurring in the U.S.  http://sharing.govdelivery.com/bulletins/GD/USHHS-7BCC3.  A report from Canada has the total confirmed cases at 6,457. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/23/content_11586485.htm

Borders open, business as usual for most except in Hawaii where the deployment of Theatre High Altitude Area Defense- http://www.army-technology.com/projects/thaad/  weaponry for “support” in case of a North Korean launch, is somewhere out to sea.  Yeah, that’s business as usual. No reason for a threat level increase?

THAAD weapons, coupled with a radar system nearby, are designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.  Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), formerly Theater High Altitude Area Defense, is a United States Army project to develop a system to shoot down short- and medium-range ballistic missiles using a hit-to-kill approach. The missile carries no warhead but relies on the kinetic energy of the impact. THAAD was designed to hit Scuds and similar weapons, but also has a limited capability against ICBMs. http://chrisabraham.com/2009/06/21/links-for-2009-06-21/ What if North Korea’s missile has a nuclear war head on it?  One might shoot it down, but does the nuclear warhead explode anyways killing millions in radio active poison?

Ground-based defenses in the state of Alaska are also ready, Mr Gates said in The Telegraph article.  Meanwhile, a US navy destroyer, the John S. McCain, has been tracking a North Korean ship that has been previously linked to illicit missile-related cargo, according to US defense officials. 

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said about North Korea last week, “We will be continuing to do everything we can to really put pressure on their military capability”, and “if there are miscalculations, they will be by the other side, he emphasized:”I think that’s why we are concerned about the North Korea provocations, that at some point they might, in fact, do something intentionally or unintentionally that sparks a larger crisis.””That is why,” he added, “we have repeatedly condemned the actions that they’ve taken as being irresponsible, provocative, but also dangerous.”http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/06/22/nearly-60-years-after-the-war-north-korea-still-playing-danger/

Well thanks for condemning the actions of a rogue government.  I feel so much better. And O- say it isn’t so, ” The Obama administration cut funding for missile interceptors scheduled to be deployed. Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the ranking member of the Committee’s Strategic Forces Subcommittee, offered an amendment to restore $120 million in funding to allow the Department of Defense to continue fielding 44 interceptors and complete construction of Missile Field 2 in Alaska.” http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/under-the-radar-dems-inexplicably-block-missile-defense/

Denied by House Democrats.

What am I doing about it?  Assuming there are no miscalculations and there is enough money to blast North Korea’s weapon- we are praying, drinking, swimming….enjoying the freedoms afforded to me that so many have died for.  Smoke ’em while you got em. 

Oh yeah, we’re washing our hands to avoid the flu- as if it matters.

Injection

More than likely we are seeing reduction in the A/H1N1 Swine Flu exposure rate among children because school’s out for summer recess in most parts of the U.S.   By September children will begin returning to the classroom and the cesspool of germs. Schoolchildren could be first in line for swine flu vaccine this fall- and schools are being put on notice that they might be turned into shot clinics.   

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is urging school superintendents around the country to spend the summer preparing for that possibility, if the government goes ahead with mass vaccinations, “If you think about vaccinating kids, schools are the logical place,” Sebelius told The Associated Press. 

In taking away more parental rights, it is the government making choices, not the parents choice in taking the child to the doctor.

The Obama Administration’s Propaganda and PR Team is preparing an all out “trust your government and health officials campaign,” asking American’s to get not one, not two, but three flu shots.  Lest we forget how many people trusted the government in the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that infected vaccinated recruits at Ft Dix?

Recent Department of Veterans Affairs Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans’ Illnesses Scientific Findings and Recommendations validated concerns that “studies have indicated that the current anthrax vaccine is associated with high rates of acute adverse reactions.” in a report The Anthrax Vaccine: A Dilemma for Homeland Security by  Lt. Col. Thomas Rempfer, USAF – The Journal of the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security – Wednesday June 17, 2009. Past problems with the Department of Defense anthrax vaccine currently impact Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services policy going so far as to explore the probability, “and the troubling possibility that the 2001 anthrax letter attacks were a deliberate and successful effort to sustain a program that federal investigators determined was on the verge of failing.” http://www.hsaj.org/?fullarticle=5.2.3  Trust the government vaccine policy?

The public would not be as keen to line up it’s children at a military installation for a shot; but if a shot is administered at school, certainly it must be safe.  Hardly.  “Do not take seasonal flu vaccine if you are told that it could help prevent this brand new Swine Flu variant. It won’t do a thing to prevent this flu. What it will do is serve up new genetic material to the Swine Flu…” warns Dr. Patricia Doyle, PhD http://www.rense.com/general85/vacc.htm

Scientists hardly know the efficacy rates or potential for side effects and vaccine manufacturers are largely protected from lawsuits.  We have seen time and time again with numerous reports linking the alarming increase in autism to 1 out of 150 children, with little remediation.  http://www.fightingautism.org/idea/autism.php

Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which was established by Congress in 1986. Under this program, a no- fault compensation program gives vaccine manufacturers broad liability protection, while at the same time assuring adequate compensation for those injured by vaccines.  http://oversight.house.gov/documents/20041018110107-30762.pdf By offering compensation, aren’t manufacturers admitting by default, that vaccines can cause injury?

Two weeks ago, a case of rare polio was been detected in a four-and-a-half-year-old boy in Upper Assam’s Dibrugarh district in India after receiving the Polio vaccine.  http://www.telegraphindia.com/1090610/jsp/northeast/story_11086301.jsp 

“A vaccine-derived poliovirus is a rare strain, genetically changed from the one contained in oral polio vaccine. The oral polio vaccine contains a weakened version of poliovirus that activates an immune response in the body and prevents the infectious viral disease from affecting the central nervous system and causing paralysis. In very rare instances, the virus in the vaccine can mutate into a form that can paralyze and has the capacity for sustained circulation.”

Sustained circulation? Genetically changed?  Caused by the Polio vaccine?

 It is expected that the novel influenza virus A(H1N1) will have sustained circulation for sometime and continue spread in the human population, and most likely in the pig population too according to http://www.promedmail.org/pls/otn/f?p=2400:1001:3239379255573737::NO::F2400_P1001_BACK_PAGE,F2400_P1001_PUB_MAIL_ID:1000,77985. Will we see a resurgence for a sustained of Polio next? What kind of genetic changes could we expect/H1N1 to mutate into on its own, let along with individuals who got vaccinated?

Swine influenza is not a food-borne zoonosis. Moreover, there is no evidence suggesting that this novel virus behaves in a different way from the other swine influenza viruses and spreads to humans via food containing pork or pork products. With regard to infection of pigs via feeding, account should be taken of the intra-species feeding ban. This is also supported by the initial data on experimental infection of piglets that have become available in recent weeks, indicating infection of only the respiratory tract and no other tissues and absence of detectable viraemia. 

Only in the respiratory tract of pigs?  Only?  Noting the ban in the intra-species feeding, perhaps now would be a good time to become a vegetarian as we humans are intra- species meat eaters. If the virus is only in the respiratory tract would it be fair to say it is being transmitted via airborne not only in pigs but perhaps in humans as well? 

Every day during the school year, more than 30 million children receive free or reduced-price lunches under the federal National School Lunch Program, and 10 million get breakfast under the National School Breakfast Program. Pork is included in many of the meals served through those important programs. http://www.porkmag.com/news_editorial.asp?pgID=768&ed_id=7604

Line the children up, give them a swine flu shot, feed them bacon for breakfast, trust the government, Obama and your local school system. 

Hardly.

Mexico US Absolut Ads 

A/H1N1 Swine Flu supposedly is a chance result of an accidental mutation between avian, human and swine flu viruses in a host animal- that animal being humans.  Putting aside the chance that A/H1N1 virus is a man made virus, could global warming be the cause?  There is no Absolut answer- so far.

A/H1N1 Swine Flu so far attacks, subsides and then mutates, does a reassortment dance and then becomes more deadly —all the while infecting humans.

In a report titled, “Avian Influenza Virus Glycoproteins Restrict Virus Replication and Spread through Human Airway Epithelium at Temperatures of the Proximal Airways“…. blah, blah, blah says the report and this: 

Avian influenza viruses are adapted for growth at 40°C, the temperature of the avian enteric tract. However, the human proximal airways, the likely site of initial inoculation by influenza viruses, are maintained at a cooler temperature (32°C), suggesting that zoonotic transmission may be limited by temperature differences between the two hosts. Using an in vitro model of human ciliated airway epithelium, we show that avian influenza viruses grow well at 37°C, a temperature reflective of distal airways, but are restricted for infection at 32°C.  http://www.plospathogens.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.ppat.1000424

Avian influenza viruses grow well at 37°C, but are restricted for infection at 32°C- .  Would it be fair to say that Avian Flu viruses like it hot, hot, hot to spread, but when the temps begin to drop, so do the numbers of cases?  

The Mexican data show cases of pneumonia – a proxy measure for severe flu – soared in April, mainly in Mexico City. April temperatures there range between 11° and 26 °C, climbing higher than the summer average in London, UK. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17100-warm-weather-may-not-halt-swine-flu.html

April and May when the virus first appeared in Mexico City shows an average temperature of Mexico City at 79 degrees F.  In June as we see  decline in the number of reported cases, we also sees a decline in the average temperature to 76 degrees F in Mexico City.http://www.mexico-vacation-rebate.com/mexico_city_weather.html  Could a few degrees colder help kill H1N1?

Look to the Northern Hemisphere where Summer has finally appeared- we see an increase in flu reported illnesses.  In the southern hemisphere the standard, seasonal flu season is just beginning.

Are these countries giving a hint of what is coming to the U.S. this fall and winter?  

” The JTF-HD CONPLAN 5003-08 has been revised to incorporate new guidance and procedures contained in USPACOM CONPLAN 5003-08, published 23 Apr 2008.  Primary changes include adopting the six-phase concept, aligning the document to the new JOPES format, and, clearly delineating the supported and supporting command relationships for clarity of responsibilities of each participating response organization.  This revision also includes changes that have been promulgated through the US Federal Government’s National Response Framework (NRF), which clearly defines the role and responsibilities of the Federal Coordinating Official (FCO), the Defense Coordinating Official (DCO), and, the State Coordinating Official (SCO) in the National Incident Management System (NIMS) that is used to manage the Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA).”  http://www1.apan-info.net/Plans/ConceptPlan5003/tabid/2054/Default.aspx

But American troops may also be called on to respond at home, to quell domestic disturbances. The US military has long had so-called Garden Plot plans to respond to civil disturbances. Under the Insurrection Act, Federal troops have been deployed ten times from 1957 [in Little Rock] to 1992 [in Los Angeles]. United States Northern Command [USNORTHCOM], responsible for Homeland Security operations, has developed Concept Plan (CONPLAN) 2502 Civil Disturbance Operations.

The US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Department of Homeland Security promulgated the “Guidance on Allocating and Targeting Pandemic Influenza Vaccine” in July 2008. Vaccine will be allocated and administered according to tiers. The highest priority Tier 1 consists of 24 million Americans, including 700,000 deployed military forces. Another 1.5 million national security personnel are among the 15 million Americans in Tier 2.  http://sitrep.globalsecurity.org/articles/090506329-military-implications-of-pande.htm

The population clock at http://www.census.gov/population/www/popclockus.html 306 million people; most of who are not in the Top Tiers and will not be entitled to quick vaccine access; if in fact, the unproven vaccine works in the first place.  Funny how it is the tax payer who foots the bill, is last on the list.

Rain, shine, cold or hotter than hell, you and I are at the bottom of the list of tiers to receive any kind of vaccine.  Seeing as it is Baxter Pharmaceutical  who has announced it has begun to mass produce a vaccine, I’ll pass based on past history of malfeasance. 

I am going to lay in the sun, tan like George Hamilton, suck down a few Absolut martini’s, wash my hands more than usual; turn up the Ipod from lawn mower noise pollution, and as Joe Biden advised quite sometime ago- stay off the subways to avoid the H1N1 Flu.

I can’t believe I am thinking that its 6 months until winter.  Apparently the A/H1N1 flu doesn’t like the cold weather either.

“Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095016/quotes  All hail God, Jesus, Mohamed, Allah, the Pharaoh’s, Mother Nature, whom, whatever and Buddha too, as Baxter International Inc. (BAX) has launched full-scale production of a vaccine for the A/H1N1 flu virus that could be  ready for use as early as July.  http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090612-714016.html 

We’re talking two weeks until projected availability! So much for clinical testing or knowing if it works. Novartis has announced it is ready to rock and roll of on it’s own vaccine.  Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical and a host of other pharma companies apparently have our ass covered to resist our exposure to the latest supposed freak of nature, Influenza A/H1N1.  Others can be found here at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/vaccine-for-pandemic-h1n1-swine-flu-scientists-roll-up-sleeves/

The creator must love us humans and especially the scientists at Baxter, but in the most humble offering of advise- wake the frig up.  No way on God’s green earth could a company, not only a company with a laboratory 50 miles away from the Swine Flu ground zero outbreak, with a history of malfeasance develop a vaccine within days of receiving the “seed virus” from WHO, be ready to ramp up production of a vaccine against the H1N1 Swine Flu, and save the world from a potential catastrophic proportion of millions of sick and dead.

I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night.  The virus is allegedly a brand new strain that is targeting young and  healthy people.  The Main Stream Media would have us believe it is a never before seen intercontinental mixture of human, avian and pig viruses from America, Europe and Asia but the leading scientists of the world are calling bullshit, proving that this has been around for perhaps more than 15 years.

Various sources are reporting this new undetected virus that has occurred basically is a freak of nature that is now spreading across the world infecting thousands via human to human contact,  and glory be the pharmaceutical companies are ready with a vaccine within days of WHO announcing a Pandemic.  Oh, get a F*%)!ng grip on reality. 

How long has the AIDS virus been around?  Scientists have had years to study it;  “HIV mutates rapidly, and in the vast majority of people these antibodies cannot completely neutralize the many mutant versions of the virus present in any single person” http://www.iavi.org/research-development/Pages/is-an-AIDS-vaccine-possible.aspx  Mutant versions?  The reassortment of H1N1 and its mutations are all over the map from Gen Bank.

Some licensed vaccines, called live-attenuated vaccines, use a crippled but living version of the targeted pathogen—or disease-causing organism—to teach the immune system what it must attack to prevent infection. Such vaccines, however, cannot be developed against HIV because of concern that the crippled HIV might revert to its disease-causing form. But live-attenuated SIV vaccines have proven effective in protecting rhesus macaques from infection with SIV, providing a proof of concept for an AIDS vaccine.

SIV is the simian immunodeficiency virus- originated with monkeys and mutated to humans.  Bird Flu, Avian Flu, Swine Flu, Hong Kong Flu, Russian Flu- is it all the business of monkeying around with human lives.

First off, a virus is for all intents and purposes not a living thing so tell me how you are going to kill it?  You aren’t and neither is Baxter, Novartis, or Obama. 

You might put faith in Obama to fix everything from the auto and banking industry to health care reform, but why is he so confident in a plan for mass inoculations at this stage is when there is little proof they would be effective?

Baxter is supposed to follows a BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) protocol to prevent cross-contamination of materials. “It was a combination of just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure,” said Baxter’s director of global bioscience communications Christopher Bona, ” when samples of H5N1 from Baxter’s Austrian labs contaminated batches of the less harmful H3N2 seasonal flu virus that it was supplying to European nations.

This is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.

In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, Asian and Latin American markets, knowingly exposing thousands, most of them children, to the live HIV virus. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States. http://swine-flu-virus.com/alert-potentially-deadly-swine-flu-spreading-throughout-the-u-s.html

In The U.S. we have two vaccine committees, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/BloodVaccinesandOtherBiologics/VaccinesandRelatedBiologicalProductsAdvisoryCommittee/default.htm) & ACIP ( http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/ACIP/default.htm): The Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices.  How many of the people on these committees have ties to the pharmaceutical industry while they pick, choose and approve waivers eliminating liability? 

Since 9-11 our economy has been focused on terrorism risk management, now we turn to pandemic risk management- how convenient for Obama’s health care reforms and pharmaceutical companies profits.  The latest report from the Markle Task Force urges the President and Congress to take swift action to ensure that policy makers have the best information available to confront a stark set of 21st century national security challenges. http://www.markle.org/resources/national_security/

Thanks be to the Gods in White Coats.

Now that The World Health Organization has issued a full pandemic threat,  I find my antennae tuning in to the rapid manufacture and issuance of drugs, vaccines and potential for mass inoculations. 

Drug makers have obtained the new influenza A H1N1 seed virus in the past two weeks, enabling them to begin the production process by growing the virus in eggs.  http://www.reuters.com/article/mergersNews/idUSWLA645920090611 

Swiss pharmaceuticals company Novartis AG http://www.novartis.com/  said today, it has produced a first batch of experimental swine flu vaccine.  The vaccine hasn’t yet been tested and cannot be used in humans yet. It was made in cells, rather than grown in eggs as is usually the case with vaccines, the company said. http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=476980&publicationSubCategoryId=200  Damn, that was fast and they didn’t have to use eggs solving a potential problem for those with egg allergens.

Not to be outdone, Sinovac Biotech Company,http://www.sinovac.com/ a vaccine-focused biotech company in China, started efforts to manufacture A/H1N1 influenza vaccine for human use on Monday, after it received the flu strain samples from the WHO, reported Beijing News Tuesday. There are another 10 Chinese drug companies that will obtain the flu strain samples “NYMCX-179A” from the WHO this week. http://english.people.com.cn/90001/90782/90880/6675151.html

It can take five or six months to come up with an entirely novel influenza vaccine,” says John Sterling, Editor in Chief of GEN- Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News. “There is a great deal of hope that biotech and pharma companies might be able to have something ready sooner.” http://www.genengnews.com/articles/chitem.aspx?aid=2938  In just two weeks he has been proven wrong,  as as scientists around the world are accelerating their efforts to develop a vaccine against the H1N1 influenza virus (Swine flu) as rapidly as possible.  

Chan from WHO said she would recommend that vaccine manufacturers proceed with mass production of an inoculation against the new swine flu strain as soon as they finish production of seasonal vaccine, which she estimated would be complete in about two weeks.  HHS spokesman Bill Hall said Thursday that no decision has been made on full-scale production because there is no need yet to make that decision….. The agency awarded a contract several weeks ago to five manufacturers to develop an H1N1 antigen. The companies are producing pilot lots. Clinical testing will take place over the summer, Hall said.  At the end of the summer, HHS will decide whether to go into production. http://entertainment.wagerweb.com/wtf/who-swine-flu-at-stage-6-and-unstoppable-11967.html 

 Dr. Rambaut says”…the increased detection of mildly deleterious mutations resulting from intensive epidemic surveillance; such mutations would more typically be eliminated and escape detection mutations could be adaptations to the new host species….http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vnfv/ncurrent/pdf/nature08182.pdf  and at his blog http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/groups/influenza/ 

Andrew Rambaut, PhD, of the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Evolutionary Biology says “These pages exist to enable the rapid dissemination of results resulting from the analysis of genetic data from the ongoing Influenza A/H1N1 outbreak attributed to swine flu. All data used, unless otherwise specified, was made available by GISAID –http://platform.gisaid.org/dante-cms/live/struktur.jdante?aid=1131 or NCBI http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/  and can be obtained directly from these sites. It is also reviewed at http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/jun1109rambau.html

Citing the world’s best scientists and research- clearly virus mutations can escape detection, have multiple reassortment, have been around for years and contrary to the Pork Industry claims- eight genomic segments of the novel H1N1 have been circulating in swine populations for a number of years, up to 17 years.  How they got there,only God knows- at least so far.

More importantly, how could WHO, the CDC, NATO, IMF, WB, Department of HHS, and any other agency order an H1N1 antigen or a vaccine when the scientists are still studying the viruses genetic make up and its mutations? Drug makers just got a virus seed two weeks ago, yet clinical studies will take place in the U.S. this summer?  What about the criteria for safety, potency and quality?  Will these anticipated clinical testings take place on animals before the initiation of human clinical trials?

Are you willing to stand in line for an untested vaccine against H1N1?  Maybe they will develop an oral one that can be mailed via the post office while you are in isolation or quarantine.

One year ago, a new technology predicted that significant outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus would occur within 6 to 12 months…Would- not Could!  The predictions, made by Replikins, were based on correlations of flu virus specimen and Pub Med documentation of major outbreaks during the past 90 years.” Naturally Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical trials.  Other H1N1 vaccine programs covered in the GEN article include those at Medicago, VaxInnate, NanoBio, Vaxart, Pulmatrix, and Purdue University.  Novavax plans to create a virus-like particle-based (VLP) vaccine against the H1N1 strain, which obviates the need for a live virus seed for manufacturing. The VLPs contain the proteins that make the virus’ outer shell and the surface proteins, without the RNA required for replication. props to  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152456.php

How could these companies have known?  How much money are they about to make?  How much more money is Obama going seek for a vaccine?  Will the vaccine kill more people than the virus as in the previous Swine Flu scare?

Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “things could possibly be very different in the fall, especially if things change in the southern hemisphere, and we need to start preparing now in order to be ready for a possible H1N1 immunization campaign starting in late September,” she said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/12/content_11528978.htm .

This year’s seasonal flu shot http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/general/news/feb1309selection-br.html changed one of the three strains used in flu vaccines, keeping the influenza A/H1N1 and A/H3N2 variants used in this year’s vaccine, both of which are labeled Brisbane strains. The influenza B component of this year’s flu vaccine was from the Yamagata lineage.  This was decided in February prior to the H1N1 outbreak; how sure are they months later that this year’s annual flu shot will not do more harm than good or encourage viral mutations?

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/”>http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/ has the flu surveillance report.

Over at the Virology blog http://www.virology.ws/2009/06/09/influenza-virus-toilet/ the author spotted the words ‘Kills Flu Virus’ on a bottle of Clorox toilet bowl cleaner. 

Some idiot is going to drink this to prevent the flu; just like they will stand in line to get a flu shot.

How do we cure the H1N1 Swine Flu?

Mycologist Paul Stamets lists 6 ways the mycelium fungus can help save the universe: cleaning polluted soil, making insecticides, treating smallpox and even curing the flu!  http://www.ted.com/index.php/speakers/paul_stamets.htmlRead more.

As swine flu cases approach 20,000 worldwide the number is significantly lower than reported cases of death from the seasonal flu.  Yet, “Pharmaceutical companies are ready to begin making a swine flu vaccine – but as the virus constantly mutates, questions abound: How much should be produced? How will it be distributed? Who should get it?”  reports http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/05/14/health/main5013643.shtml?source=RSSattr=HOME_5013643.  Will you ask for the one manufactured by Baxter Pharma?

America’s North Shore blog clearly shows and increase in the number of cases- to the tune of 700 more cases per day. http://northshorejournal.org/is-swine-flu-or-novel-h1n1-in-decline-in-the-us

David Fedson, a vaccines expert and former professor of medicine at the University of Virginia. “If we don’t invest in an H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine, then possibly we could have a reappearance of this virus in a mild, moderate, or catastrophic form and we would have absolutely nothing.” 

Exxxxcccuuuuse me? Where is the hope for an aids vaccine or even an antibiotic against staph infections- due to an increase in MRSA; which because of drug resistance are much harder to treat?  These world wide death tolls and infection rates are staggering. 

The latest statistics on the world epidemic of AIDS & HIV were published by UNAIDSEstimateEstimate Range Range/WHO in July 2008, and refer to the end of 2007.

  Estimate Range
People living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 33.0 million 30.3-36.1 million
Adults living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 30.8 million 28.2-34.0 million
Women living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 15.5 million 14.2-16.9 million
Children living with HIV/AIDS in 2007 2.0 million 1.9-2.3 million
People newly infected with HIV in 2007 2.7 million 2.2-3.2 million
Children newly infected with HIV in 2007 0.37 million 0.33-0.41 million
AIDS deaths in 2007 2.0 million 1.8-2.3 million
Child AIDS deaths in 2007 0.27 million 0.25-0.29 million

More than 25 million people have died of AIDS since 1981. sourced from http://www.avert.org/worldstats.htm

According to the world Health Organization, the number of people diagnosed with cancer will rise to 26.4 million of which 17 million will die, triple the number of today’s patients. http://news.ert.gr/en/23084-triplasiazontai-ta-krousmata-karkinou-mexri-to-2030.htm

Cholera can be treated in nearly 99% of cases http://diarrhea.emedtv.com/cholera/cholera-cure.html yet in Zimbabwe alone the number of cholera cases has climbed to 100,000 with 4,283 deaths according to The Red Cross http://www.ifrc.org/docs/news/pr09/2709.asp.  Clean water is the first step to prevention but the Red Cross has decreased funding.  2007 IRS filing http://www.redcross.org/www-files/Documents/pdf/corppubs/ARC_990_2008.pdf shows revenue of a staggering $31.8 Billion. 

Still funding goes to vaccines for the unknown, the new H1N1 Swine Flu.  While H1N1 is a new variable what happens if it merges with the more deadly Avian Flu.  Can it merge with Aids? 

I am ready to order some mushroom soup, crab stuffed mushrooms, mushroom quiche, beef stroganoff with mushrooms; but I will pass on the mushroom sorbet.  Man’s got to draw the line somewhere.  Instead give me the double fried cheesecake, topped with strawberries and loads of whipped cream.  If the shrooms don’t boost my immune system at least when they roll my sorry ass into a casket- from whatever illness there is no cure from, I will have died one fat happy mother Fred.

People before profits?  Just add the automatic 20% tip charge please.

The CDC has this to say on a cure and prevention besides determining that this new H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human  – http://www.cdc.gov/H1N1flu/qa.htm.
