It’s October and, like clockwork, the pro-flu shot propaganda is heating up as the temperatures outside begin to drop.
This week, while the TV was on in the other room, I heard an advertisement for free flu shots at a local pharmacy. Of course the shots are not “free.” They are subsidized by the government, which means they’re just another massive wealth transfer to Big Pharma.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is publishing its annual promotional materials. And now the scaremongering propaganda comes from the CDC through the Association of Health Care Journalists.
“Flu experts” from orthodox medicine held a webinar this week with the propaganda media to tout the dangers that would arise from a flu pandemic “that could cause widespread disruption and death” because “the country is ill-prepared for a pandemic flu.”
Of course what they mean is that it’s a shame that so many drugs are made outside the U.S., except for a couple made in Puerto Rico, and that “Any kind of disruption from a pandemic elsewhere, particularly in India or China, would have a rapid impact on U.S. health care,” according to Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.
So the answer is, of course, get yourself a flu shot so you won’t catch the flu because there’s mass danger that everyone will die in a flu pandemic.
Every year the medical establishment, led by the CDC, predict a flu pandemic. And when it fails to materialize, the medical establishment creates another scare and another, all in the hopes of encouraging people to take more drugs.
Never mind that the last actual “pandemic” (CDC’s words, not mine) touted by the CDC occurred in 2009 and resulted in a grand total of 14,286 deaths worldwide, according to the European Centre for Disease Control — and it was likely less than a third of that. Regardless, that’s an amazingly small number out of a worldwide population of 7.42 billion. Especially when you consider that every year in the U.S. alone, there are 12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries; 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals and 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines. That’s 225,000 iatrogenic (induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures) deaths per year, or 2.25 million per decade.
