From the Epoch Times – not mentioning evolution and mobile carriers, but otherwise on the money re overblown fear of swine flu:

Quote:
According to World Health Organization’s (WHO) global statistics, 2,185 people have died from the H1N1 virus, while another 209,438 are confirmed to have caught it, as of Aug. 23.

What this also means is that 207,253 people recovered from the virus—a recovery rate of 99.99 percent. Bear in mind that all of these recoveries were before an official vaccine for the H1N1 virus was released. The common, seasonal flu kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people each year, globally, while causing severe illness in between 3 million and 5 million people, according to the WHO.

It is recommended that you read the above paragraph 30 times to deprogram yourself of the media’s over-sensationalized reporting on the H1N1 virus.

What the world has seemingly forgotten is that the H1N1 virus is not entirely a new disease. It surfaced back in 1976 and was followed by the same concerns. Back then, the U.S. government launched a mass vaccination campaign, which aimed at inoculating every U.S. citizen. It was soon found that among the many side effects of the vaccine was the deadly Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Ultimately, the H1N1 vaccine of 1976 killed more people than the virus itself, while the fears surrounding the virus never became a reality. More than 40 million people were vaccinated before the vaccine was discontinued. All that was left was a hefty stack of lawsuits from families without mothers and fathers due to the vaccine.

What’s Not to Fear About the H1N1 Virus?
