What are the economic interests behind this swine flu epidemic (falsely declared pandemic by WHO) that we hear about over and over?

CDC has recently revised its autism rate to a lower level. We now have 1 person out of 91 (instead of 1 out of 150) affected by this devastating neurological disorder. The newspapers hardly talk about it yet we have a real epidemic. If it were not for the loud voices of a handful of non profit organizations founded by parents affected by autism, the newspapers would never brush the subject. This is a disturbing subject especially if the finger is pointed directly at the pharmaceutical companies.

When the famous avian flu appeared ten year ago the international press flooded us with articles on the issue. An epidemic, the most dangerous of all... a pandemic!

All we could hear about was this terrifying bird disease. Yet the avian flu has only caused about 250 deaths over 10 years; that is 25 deaths a year.

The common flu kills half a million people per year in the world so we have half a million deaths versus 25 deaths a year.

Wait a minute... Wait a minute please! Why was there such a brouhaha? Why was there such a scandal around the avian flu?

Because behind the chicken there was a “Rooster”, a rooster with a big crest.

Its name is the international pharmaceutical company ROCHE (http://www.roche.fr/portal/eipf/france/rochefr/institutionnel) manufacture of Tamiflu sold by millions of doses to Asian countries.

Although the effectiveness of Tamiflu is questionable, the British government ordered 14 million doses to protect its population.

Thanks to the avian flu, ROCHE and RELENZA, the two largest pharmaceutical companies for antiviral sales, have realized millions of dollars in profits.

We had the chickens and now here we go with the pigs! The swine flu worldwide is all the media talk about. I am wondering... If behind the chicken we had a “Rooster” why wouldn’t we have a “Big Pig” behind the pigs?

The North American company, Gilead Sciences http://www.gilead.com/ owns the Tamiflu patent. The main shareholder of Gilead Sciences is, Donald Rumsfeld, Defense Secretary of State for Georges Bush, and to many people the instigator of the Iraq war. Don and the other shareholders from the pharmaceutical companies ROCHE and RELENZA must be jumping up and down with delight, happy with the millions of new Tamiflu sales.

But the real pandemic is the pandemic of money with the enormous profits made by these health mercenaries. I do not argue with the current safety measures being taken by all of the countries around the globe but if the swine flu is the terrible pandemic announced by the media, why don’t we declare this pandemic a world public health problem? Why don’t we authorize the manufacturing of generic drugs to fight it? Why don’t we momentarily get by without the patents of ROCHE http://www.roche.fr/portal/eipf/france/rochefr/institutionnel and RELENZA and distribute generic drugs for free to all of the countries and in particular to the poorest countries? Wouldn’t this be a better solution? Unless this is a big joke and no real threat is looming upon mankind.

There is nothing better than a good case of flu to turn people away from the real problems – like the dramatic increase of autism cases (1 out of 91) officially declared by CDC. Such an increase is certainly not due to better diagnostic tools. Follow the pharmaceutical companies and you will find the culprits one more time...

World Health Organization definition of H1N1 pandemic accurate

Definition of Pandemic

Pandemic: An epidemic (a sudden outbreak) that becomes very widespread and affects a whole region, a continent, or the world.

By contrast:

An epidemic affects more than the expected number of cases of disease occurring in a community or region during a given period of time. A sudden severe outbreak within a region or a group as, for example, AIDS in Africa or AIDS in intravenous drug users.

Definition of a pandemic by WHO

Before May 2009: WHO said that a pandemic is a disease that has to be both highly lethal AND highly contagious.

May 2009 and on: WHO said that a pandemic is a disease that has to be highly contagious. It no longer has to be highly lethal!

We may as well have a pandemic every year.

Thank you Barbara Chan, General director of WHO for making that convenient change at a convenient time to benefit BIG PHARMAS!

Personally, I do not consider the current definition of a pandemic by WHO as accurate...

Cassie, you may want to check WHO's website more carefully.


I don't know why you feel the need to add a "dig", but if you feel more validated, go for it.
I simply defined pandemic. Should I have earned your ire in not defining it according to WHO's definition prior to May, following, May, during May... well, my bottom line is that I defined pandemic... period.

I am not mad at you at all

I am not mad at you at all Cassie and my passionate answer was not directly aimed at you even if you felt that way... I am just sad that so many people don't know about all of the legal and political intricacies around the H1N1/A "pandemic". Peace :)!

A glass of wine...

makes everything rosier! : )


take care Cassie :)!

When a pandemic isn't a pandemic


"The word pandemic refers to how widely dispersed a disease is, not to how severe the disease is," he said

Confusion about the meaning of "pandemic" is understandable, Ozonoff said, considering the definition of the word is "not set in stone."

Until Monday morning, the WHO had a definition on its Web site saying that a pandemic flu causes "enormous numbers of deaths and illness." After a CNN reporter pointed this out, WHO spokeswoman Natalie Boudou called back to say the definition was in error and had been pulled from the WHO Web site.

"It was a mistake, and we apologize for the confusion," she said. "(That definition) was put up a while ago and paints a rather bleak picture and could be very scary."

The correct definition is that "pandemic" indicates outbreaks in at least two of the regions into which WHO divides the world, but has nothing to do with the severity of the illnesses or the number of deaths."

DUHHH! Of course the definition of a pandemic is confusing to everybody if WHO changes it in May this year hoping that nobody will notice their agenda.
