IIRC, the flu kills 30,000 people a year in this country. 1,000 deaths in the last 6 months from the pig version and its a crisis? I don't get it.
Exactly. People with compromised immune systems are the most vulnerable to any kind of virus or bacterial infection. Every year different types of influenza viruses circulate throughout the world, that's why last year's vaccine isn't any good this year. The swine version will pass by as the other's have. Remember the West-Nile virus panic a few years ago? Get bitten by a mosquito and you're as good as dead.
The "panic" is spread by people without enough knowledge of how a virus is spread. I'll bet they are the same people who don't follow the basic procedures to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, they probably don't wash their hands after using the toilet either.
As far as the Swine Flu vaccine, I won't take it. My outlook may be a little different, but worth reading about.
Most people don't realize that there are enough germs in the air in the average retail store to wipe out the entire earth's population. It's all about the immune system. You eliminate bacteria and viruses everyday that could kill you without even realizing it.http://www.branchvillefamilychiropracti ... nformation

Found this on the 'net written about the Swine Flu in 1977:http://www.whale.to/vaccine/sf.html
Some of it (I did not read all of it) seems a little "out there" but still interesting.
