Profit Driven Swine Flu Propaganda

This article is part three in a six-part series. Be sure to read part two at http://www.naturalnews.com/027301_s...

Public health officials now say they have quit keeping tabs on swine flu deaths because it is too difficult. A more likely explanation is that fear mongering would be impossible if they continued to announce the low rates of swine flu deaths and vaccine profits would take a nose dive.

"It's absurd to panic about swine flu, especially since it won't cause severe disease in many people," says Juan Gérvas, Honorary Professor, Public Health, School of Medicine, Autonomous University in Madrid, Spain, in the September 21, 2009 paper titled, "In the Face of Swine Flu, Common Sense and Science," on the Healthy Skepticism website.

"The current WHO messages, which are increasing fear of swine flu is a form of disease mongering," he warns.

"We need a health policy of common sense and self-control," Professor Gérvas advises.

"The present messages by Governments, the WHO and the media focusing on the worst case scenario and the detailed description of each death is the completely wrong approach," he says.

On July 21, 2009, Spiegel Online interviewed epidemiologist, Dr Tom Jefferson, who has worked for the Cochrane Collaboration, an international team of scientists, for 15 years.

"Sometimes you get the feeling that there is whole industry almost waiting for a pandemic to occur," Jefferson said.

He then listed the WHO, public health officials, virologists and the pharmaceutical companies. "They've built this machine around the impending pandemic," he said. "And there's a lot of money involved, and influence, and careers, and entire institutions!"

"And all it took was one of these influenza viruses to mutate to start the machine grinding," Jefferson pointed out.

"It's true that influenza viruses are unpredictable, so it does call for a certain degree of caution," he advised.

"But one of the extraordinary features of this influenza -- and the whole influenza saga," he said, "is that there are some people who make predictions year after year, and they get worse and worse."

"None of them so far have come about, and these people are still there making these predictions," he pointed out.

"For example," he asked, "what happened with the bird flu, which was supposed to kill us all?"

"Nothing," he said. "But that doesn't stop these people from always making their predictions."
