On Monday April 27th, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its pandemic alert level to four on its six-level threat scale, which means they've determined that the virus is capable of human-to- 1 human transmission.

It h aas noticeable subplot - preparing you for draconian measures to combat a future pandemic as well as forcing you to accept the idea of mandatory vaccinations.

WHO and CDC Pandemic Preparedness Seriously Broken The pandemic warning system has failed as it simply doesn't exist, even in North America and c nd Europe. To improve the system, massive new investments in surveillance, scientiﬁ a regul a o y t r infrastructure, basic public health, and global access to common sense interventions like vitamin D optimization are required. According to the Washington Post, the CDC did not learn about the outbreak until six days a er Mexico had begun to impose emergency measures. There should be no excuses. The paradox of this u a at h t ne a ccur at el y p edi ct ed. S x y s a swine ﬂ p ni c is th , w i le to al ly u xpe ct ed, it w s a r i ear go, Science ear f , e o me i e u dedicated a major story to evidence that "a er y s o st abi lity th N r th A ri can sw n ﬂ vir u s has jumped onto an evolutionary fas rack" . However, maybe this is precisely what public health authorities desire. This is NOT the First Swine Flu Panic My guess is that you can expect to see a lot of panic over this issue in the near future. But the key is rst e e ubl to remain calm -- this isn't the ﬁ tim th p ic h b a e bout sw n ﬂ. Te l a tim as een w r n d a i e u h st e was in 1976, right before I entered medical school and I remember it very clearly. It resulted in the massive swine ﬂ v e am u acci n c p a i g n. Do you happen to recall the result of this massive campaign? led y i s h Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been ﬁ b v ct im w o h suﬀered ad paralysis from the vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for 25 deaths. However, several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barré Syndrome a er th y w re e e injected with the swine ﬂ v e ven h al th 2 y -o d e d u a p apl egi cs. u acci n .

More People Died From the Swine Flu Vaccine than Swine Flu! cu It is very diﬃl t to forecast a pandemic, and a rash response can be extremely damaging. As of Monday April 27, the worldwide total number of conﬁ e d c rm a 2, ccor d n to W O, ases w s 8 a i g H rm y e e r i o which included 40 cases in the U.S., conﬁ e d b th C nt ers fo D sease C nt rol . B d ut oes that truly warrant the feverish news headlines? To put things into perspective, malaria kills 3,000 people EVERY DAY, and it's considered "a health problem"... But of course, there are no fancy vaccines for malaria that can rake in billions of dollars in a short amount of time. u pi e i oul One Australian news source, for example, states that even a mild swine ﬂ e d m c c d lead to 3 the deaths of 1.4 million people and would reduce economic growth by nearly $5 trillion dollars. u on' now Give me a break, if this doesn't sound like the outlandish cries of the pandemic bird-ﬂ I d t k what does. Do you remember when President Bush said two million Americans would die as a result u of the bird ﬂ ? o an rue oax, In 2005, in 2006, 2007, and again in 2008, those fears were exposed as li le m r e th a c l h designed to instill fear, and line the pocketbooks of various individuals and industry. I became so u a i at r convinced by the evidence AGAINST the possibility of a bird ﬂ p nde m c th I w ot e a N w Y r k e o Times bestselling book, The Bird Flu Hoax, all about the massive fraud involved with the epidemic that never happened.. What is the Swine Flu? u ont us Regular swine ﬂ is a c agi o respi rat o y r u disease, caused by a type-A inﬂe nza v rus thi at ect i s he ur , ( 1 1 aﬀ s p g . T c rent st rai n A H N ) , is a n w e variation of an H1N1 virus -- which causes u ut r um seasonal ﬂ o b eaks in h a ns -- th a so at l contains genetic material of bird and pig versions u of the ﬂ. Interestingly enough, this version has never before been seen in neither human nor animal, which I will discuss a bit later. This does sound bad. But not so fast. There are a few reasons to not rush to conclusions that this is the deadly pandemic we've been told would occur in the near future (as if anyone could predict it without having some sort of inside knowledge). Why a True Bird- or Swine Flu Pandemic is HIGHLY Unlikely While in my opinion it is highly likely factory farming is responsible for producing this viral strain, I believe there is still no cause for concern. u re You may not know this, but all H1N1 ﬂ' s a descendants of the 1918 pandemic strain. The u a r a ot o reason why the ﬂ shot m y o m y n w r k, however, from year to year, is due to mutations. Therefore, there's no vaccine available for this u , nd at r , i current hybrid ﬂ strai n a n u al ly th s is feedi n th fear th m llio o p opl e w ll d e b o e g e at i ns f e i i ef r a vaccine can be made. However, let me remind you of one very important fact here. u a i at i et e Just a couple of months ago, scientists concluded that the 1918 ﬂ p nde m c th k lled b w en 5 0- f 8 o s h l e o 100 million people worldwide in a ma er o 1 m nt h -- w i ch a l th se w r st c s r ase scenari o a e u built upon -- was NOT due to the ﬂ itsel f ! 4 Instead, they discovered the real culprit was strep infections. u t h a ow People with inﬂe nza o en ge w t is kn n as a " su i nfe ct i o " w ha ba t eri al a ent . In19 i t per n it c g 18 appears to have been Streptococcus pneumoniae. u s g o e e Since strep is much easier to treat than the ﬂ u i n m de rn m di ci n , a n w p nde m c w ul d lik y e a i o el be much less dire than it was in the early 20th century, the researchers concluded. Others, such as evolutionary biologist Paul Ewald, claim that a pandemic of this sort simply cannot 5 happen, because in order for it to occur, the world has to change. Not the virus itself, but the world. In a previous interview for Esquire magazine, in which he discusses the possibility of a bird ﬂ u pandemic, he states: "They think that if a virus mutates, it's an evolutionary event. Well, the virus is mutating because that is what viruses and other pathogens do. But evolution is not just random mutation. It is random mutation coupled p e dvant age am ng d ﬀ with natural selection; it is a ba le for com e titiv a o i erent strai ns gener ated by rando m mutation. u e t um For bird ﬂ to evol v in o a h a n p ande m c, the strai n that ﬁd a hom inhu a n i t y has to be a strai n t h is i ns e m at both highly virulent and highly transmissible. Deadliness has to translate somehow into popularity; H5N1 has n a i mo um to ﬁ d a w y to k ll or im bi lize its h a n h osts, a still ﬁd other host s to i n ct. U al l y t h doesn't nd n fe su at happen." s, nd e vol t n f Ewald goes on to explain that evolution in general is all about trade-oﬀ a in th e u io o et e i nd i i . infections the trade-oﬀis b w en v rul enc e a trans m ssi b lity u r i e u rn to m nde i What this means is that in order for a "bird ﬂ" o "sw n ﬂ" tot u i n a hu an pa m c , it hs a n n nvi e at ot e to ﬁd a e ronm nt th favor s b h d adl y v rul enc e a e i f i nd ase o trans m ssi on. People living in squalor on the Western Front at the end of World War I generated such an environment, from which the epidemic of 1918 could arise. Likewise, crowded chicken farms, slaughterhouses, and jam-packed markets of eastern Asia provide u a ogen th b h k lls another such environment, and that environment gave rise to the bird ﬂ -- a p t h at ot i and spreads, in birds, but not in humans. Says Ewald: "We know that H5N1 is well adapted to birds. We also know that it has a hard time becoming a virus that can move from person to person. It has a hard time without our doing anything. But we can make it harder. We can make sure it has no human population in which to evolve transmissibility. There is no need to rely on the mass extermination of chickens. There is no need to stockpile vaccines for everyone. By vaccinating just the people most at risk -- the people who work with chickens and the caregivers -- we can h oes prevent it from becoming transmissible among humans. Then it doesn't ma er w at it d in chi ckens . " Please remember that, despite the fantastic headlines and projections of MILLIONS of deaths, the u i i e H5N1 bird ﬂ v rus k lled a m re 257 people worldwide since late 2003. As unfortunate as those deaths v ear p are, 257 deaths worldwide from any disease, over the course of ﬁe y s, si m l y d ot ons oes n c titu e t n, l ne an emergency worthy of much a ent io let a o fear ! v ear a Honestly, your risk of being killed by a lightning strike in the last ﬁ e y s w s a , 00 bout 2 3 u percent higher than your risk of contracting and dying from the bird ﬂ . I'm not kidding! In just 6 one year (2004), more than 1,170 people died from lighting strikes, worldwide. 7 rm i e u ses are re ea So please, as the numbers of conﬁ e d sw n ﬂ c a l sed, kep a l e el had a n do t le e v e d n' t fear run away with your brains. g o r ess D nger ous ? So is the Swine Flu Ge in M r e o L a On Sunday, April 26, The Independent reported that more than 1,000 people had contracted the swine u i e ﬂ v rus in M xi co, but by the a ern 8 at e a oon th sam d y, M xi can P esi d nt C l d ron d cl a e r e a e e red th at more than two-thirds of the 1,300 thought to have contracted the disease had been given a clean bill of health and sent home. 9 rm Additionally, the number of actual conﬁ e d c ppe e w an a ases a ars to b far lo e r th repor ted in m ny media outlets, leading me to believe that many reporters are interchanging the terms "suspected rm cases" and "conﬁ e d c ases. " Interestingly Mexico is the ONLY country in the world where someone has actually died from this u e ases in recent d ys, seven o w i ch h disease.Mexico has reported 152 fatalities in ﬂ- lik c a f h ave been rm s i e u n o t t conﬁ e d a sw n ﬂ.

About 2,000 people have been hospitalized with symptoms. rm By contrast, the United States has had 64 conﬁ e d c v s li a n d no deaths from ases, ﬁe ho pi t a z t i o s an rst i e e S US Citizens. On April 29th CNN reported the ﬁ sw n fat al ity in th U , however this was actually a child from Mexico that died in Texas. According to the World Health Organization's Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response site; as of April 27, there are: • rm 64 laboratory conﬁ e d c . . e s ases in U S -- 0 d at h (reported by CDC as of April 29) • rm 26 conﬁ e d c e e s ases in M xi co -- 7 d at h • rm 6 conﬁ e d c a e s ases in C nada -- 0 d at h • rm 1 conﬁ e d c pa e s ase in S i n -- 0 d at h Additionally, nearly all suspected new cases have been reported as mild. Personally, I am highly skeptical. It simply doesn't add up to a real pandemic. But it does raise serious questions about where this brand new, never before seen virus came from, especially since it cannot be contracted from eating pork products, and has never before been seen in u u r pigs, and contains traits from the bird ﬂ -- and which, so far, only seems to respond to Tamiﬂ. A e we just that lucky, or... what? Your Fear Will Make Some People VERY Rich in Today's Crumbling Economy n l nal st st a According to the Associated Press at least one ﬁanc i a a y e im t es u to $p i n o 388 m llio w r th o f u e e t r Tamiﬂ sal es in th n ar fu u e -- and that's without a pandemic outbreak. 10 More than half a dozen pharmaceutical companies, including Gilead Sciences Inc., Roche, u e nd e GlaxoSmithKline and other companies with a stake in ﬂ treat m nt s a d t ect io h n, ave seen a ri se f a nd i el in their shares in a ma er o d ys, a w ll lik y see revenue b e i e u t oosts if th sw n ﬂ ou break continues to spread.

More serious symptoms included convulsions, delirium or delusions, and 14 deaths in children and teens as a result of neuropsychiatric problems and brain infections (which led Japan to ban Tamiﬂ u for children in 2007). And that's for a drug that, when used as directed, only reduces the duration of u p m y a inﬂe nza sym t o s b 1 to 1 ½ d ys, a i g e ﬃ l ta ccor d n to th o cia da . o e at i ﬂu IGH But making ma ers w r se, som p ient s w th in enza are at H E R r isk f o se c r condar y ba t eri al u n infections when on Tamiﬂ. A d secondary bacterial infections, as I mentioned earlier, was likely the REAL cause of the mass fatalities during the 1918 pandemic! Where did This Mysterious New Animal-Human Flu Strain Come From? Alongside the fear-mongering headlines, I've also seen increasing numbers of reports questioning the true nature of this virus. And rightfully so. Could a mixed animal-human mutant like this occur naturally? And if not, who made it, and how was it released? n ct al Not one to dabble too deep in conspiracy theories, I don't have to strain very hard to ﬁd a u fact s to support the notion that this may not be a natural mutation, and that those who stand to gain have the wherewithal to pull oﬀsuc h a st u .nt Just last month I reported on the story that the American pharmaceutical company Baxter was under u i investigation for distributing the deadly avian ﬂ v rus to 1 d ﬀ unt r f 8 i erent co r ies as pa t o a se asonal u acci n shi p e nt . C ech repor ters w re p obi n to see if it m y h ﬂ v e m z e r g a ave b a f e erat e een p r t o a d l ib p a i s a em t to st art a p nde m c; a suc h a "m st ake" w ul d b v rtu ly im ossi b e u r th secur i ty i o e i al p l nde e protocols of that virus. The H5N1 virus on its own is not very airborne. However, when combined with seasonal ﬂ v rus es, u i ect oul e ot i e , i l gi which are more easily spread, the eﬀ c d b a p ent , a rbor ne , d adl y b o o cal w apon. If e u nd u se this batch of live bird ﬂ a seasonal ﬂ vir u s ha r e e bl ul ve sul d ached t h pu i c, it co d ha re t ed i n dire consequences. There is a name for this mixing of viruses; it's called "reassortment," and it is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created in the lab. Some scientists say the most recent global outbreak -- the u a y i 1977 Russian ﬂ -- w s started b a v rus c nd bor r reat ed a leaked from a la at o y. Another example of the less sterling integrity of Big Pharma is the case of Bayer, who sold millions of g e e s n, at me nd dollars worth of an injectable blood-clo in m di ci n to A i a L in A ri can, a som E ope an e ur countries in the mid-1980s, even though they knew it was tainted with the AIDS virus. So while it is morally unthinkable that a drug company would knowingly contaminate ﬂ v e u acci n s u i s e i - r i e u rt t p o with a deadly ﬂ v rus suc h a th b rd o sw n ﬂ, it is ce ainly no im s s i ble. It hs alr e a ady happened more than once. But there seems to be no repercussions or hard feelings when industry oversteps the boundaries of morality and integrity and enters the arena of obscenity. Because, lo and behold, which company has o l ng i H r been chosen to head up eﬀr ts, a o w th W O, to p oduc e a v e gai s e e acci n a n t th M xi can sw n i e u ﬂ? Baxter! Despite the fact that ink has barely dried on the investigative reports from their should-be- 11 criminal "mistake" against humanity. According to other sources, a top scientist for the United Nations, who has examined the outbreak 12 of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa, as well as HIV/AIDS victims, has concluded that the current u i swine ﬂ v rus p ossesses c i ertai n trans m ssi o "vect o s" th suggest th n w st rai n h b n r at e e as een genetically-manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon. u i The UN expert believes that Ebola, HIV/AIDS, and the current A-H1N1 swine ﬂ v rus a e b o o cal r i l gi warfare agents. In addition, Army criminal investigators are looking into the possibility that disease samples are missing from biolabs at Fort Detrick -- the same Army research lab from which the 2001 anthrax strain was released, according to a recent article in the Fredrick News Post. In February, the top 13 biodefense lab halted all its research into Ebola, anthrax, plague, and other diseases known as "select e i i p at e agents," a er th y d scovered v rus sam l es th w ren' t listed in its in r nd i ht ave b vent o y a m g h een switched with something else. Factory Farming Maybe Source of Swine Flu Another theory as to the cause of Swine Flu might be factory farming. In the United States, pigs e or el f w travel coast to coast. They can be bred in North Carolina, fa ene d in th c n b t o Io a , and slaughtered in California. While this may reduce short-term costs for the pork industry, the highly contagious nature of u e aps m de fu th r in ect io b th stresses o trans por t) n eds to b diseases like inﬂe nza (p rh a r e f us y e f e e considered when calculating the true cost of long-distance live animal transport. n o an , 00 ni a The majority of U.S. pig farms now conﬁe m r e th 5 0 a m l s e i r f , 00 ach. W th a g oup o 5 0 animals, if a novel virus shows up it will have more opportunity to replicate and potentially spread than in a group of 100 pigs on a small farm. u i With massive concentrations of farm animals within which to mutate, these new swine ﬂ v rus es in North America seem to be on an evolutionary fast track, jumping and reassorting between species at an unprecedented rate.

In February, the pre-publication and preliminary ﬁdi n jo n c led Nature Precedings published a paper on this concern, stating : 15 u The dramatic rise of oseltamivir [Tamiﬂ] resistance in the H1N1 serotype in the 2007/2008 season and the x g f 2 ﬁ i n o H 74Y in the 2 008/ 2 as g di i ual 009 season h rai sed conc erns regardi n in v d s at ri sk for seasona l u e e e i 5 1 u inﬂe nz a, as w l l as d ve l opm nt of si m lar resi stanc e in the H N serot ype [bird ﬂ] . Previously, oseltamivir resistance produced changes in H1N1 and H3N2 at multiple positions in treated patients. In contrast, the recently reported resistance involved patients who had not recently taken oseltamivir.

Unfortunately, those prospects won't stop the governments of the world from mandating the vaccine -- a scenario I hope we can all avoid. How to Protect Yourself Without Dangerous Drugs and Vaccinations u a i r reat ed, a For now, my point is that there are always going to be threats of ﬂ p nde m cs, real o c nd there will always be potentially toxic vaccines that are peddled as the solution. But you can break free of that whole drug-solution trap by following some natural health principles. u I have not caught a ﬂ in o o e nd ou an voi ver tw d cade s, a y c a d it to w th e g c t , y o, i out g in va ci na ed b following these simple guidelines, which will keep your immune system in optimal working order so that you're far less likely to acquire the infection to begin with. • Optimize your vitamin D levels. As I've previously reported, optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D ci el e RUE c p i t b n th seasonal ity o th ﬂ -- not the ﬂ v rus itsel f. deﬁ enc y is lik y th T ul r ehi d e f e u u i This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take. I would STRONGLY urge you to have your vitamin D level monitored to conﬁ y r e rm our level s a e th rape ut ic at 50-70 ng.ml and done by a reliable vitamin D lab like Lab Corp. For those of you in the US we hope to launch a vitamin D testing service through Lab Corp that allows you to have your vitamin D levels checked at your local blood drawing facility, and relatively er i y ne 009. inexpensively. We hope to oﬀ th s servi ce b Ju 2 u e p m nd ave n b If you are coming down with ﬂ lik sym t o s a h n i i ou an ot een o v tam n D y c take d oses of 50,000 units a day for three days to treat the acute infection. Some researchers like Dr. Cannell, believe the dose could even be as high as 1000 units per pound of body weight for three days. • Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system g g ﬀ almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to ﬁht in o viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice. • Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're g e u e re ec t y tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to ﬁht th ﬂ.

Yu c a r e ewmy exercise guidelines for some great tips on how to get started. • Take a good source of animal based omega-3 fats like Krill Oil. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils that are trans fats and in processed foods as it will seriously damage your immune response. • Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to. • Eat Garlic Regularly. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use. However, if you are allergic or don't enjoy garlic it would be best to avoid as it will likely cause more harm than good. • Avoid Hospitals and Vaccines In this particular case, I'd also recommend you stay away from hospitals unless you're having an emergency, as hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to this new bug. Vaccines will not be available for six months at the minimum but when available they will ect e nd an ri pl g a si e u be ineﬀ iv a c lead to c p in p r al y s lik G i lla n B ré S i - ar e s s i yndr om ju t a it d d in the 70s.
