15. Public health authorities have cried wolf every flu
season to get the public to line up for flu shots. Health
authorities repeatedly publish the bogus 36,000 annual
flu-related deaths figure to scare the public into getting
flu shots. But that figure is based on the combined deaths
from pneumonia in the elderly and the flu. Maybe just
5000–6000 or so flu-related deaths occur annually,
mostly among individuals with compromised immune
systems, the hospitalized, individuals with autoimmune
disease or other health problems. As stated above, the
swine flu in full force has only resulted in ~500–600
deaths in the first six months in circulation and it is far
more dreaded by public health authorities than the
seasonal flu. The Centers for Disease Control issues a According to data provided by the Centers for Disease
