    Default "swine flu parties"

    LONDON, England (CNN) -- Health experts are warning parents against holding "swine flu parties" in the hope of infecting their children with the H1N1 virus.

    Talk of swine flu parties has emerged on Internet forums. The idea is that exposing a child to the H1N1 virus while it remains relatively mild will give the child immunity if the virus returns in a more virulent form later on.

    The idea is an extension of chicken pox and measles parties that were once a popular way of exposing children to those diseases so that they might acquire resistance to subsequent infections.

    But health officials have been quick to condemn the idea. Speaking at a conference, Dr Richard Jarvis, chairman of the British Medical Association's public health committee, said "I have heard of reports of people throwing swine flu parties. I don't think it is a good idea.

    "I would not want it myself. It is quite a mild virus, but people still get ill and there is a risk of mortality."

    Last month, Richard Besser, the acting head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also warned against deliberately exposing people to the virus.

    While it's not clear if any swine flu parties have been held, Justine Roberts, the founder of Web site mumsnet, today told BBC Radio 4 that some people have been discussing the idea.

    "We have heard of people saying 'can we come round to your house when you get it?" she said.

    "There's definitely a prevailing view that it might be better to get it now and some people are not despairing if there is a case in their school."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    why would they want people to develop natural immunities?! If they did that then who would the drug companies sell all that tamiflu to?
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Fkn eh b. Better to get the virus and build immunity to it than be injected with their stupid vaccines.
    Funny. I've not had the flu in about 10 years. Not since I stopped getting their fucking flu shots. Go figure.

    yep. As much as possible we should try to let our bodies do their own thing. Our bodies, when working properly are a marvel...seriously.

    All this crap they want us to take has the potential to do a great deal more harm than good.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    We discussed this at work yesterday. It does have it's risks and you dont know what viruses your children can get allergic reactions to. What is scaring people into doing it is the rememberance that in 1918 it came mild at first, the mutated into a more destructive strain.

    the bbc are reporting that over 100,000 people could be infected with swine flu every day in the near future and vaccine stocks won't be ready until the end of august maybe christmas...the swne flu party seems like a semi intelligent idea.

    Uh-huh. So while there is no evidence that this has actually happened, why not print the story anyway? Now that's just good journalism, right there.

    In my line of work, I've been encouraged to get the flu shot. With the different climates I travel in, it's easy to get sick. For instance, in the winter, I leave Iowa and will head for California. It might be 35 when I leave, stop in Wyoming it's near zero excluding windchill. Stop in Nevada, it's in the 40's-50's, hit California (depending on if in the north or south) it's 50-70. Then we head back, through the same weather.

    Toss in having to chain up, going over the mountains, then we're rolling around on the ground. Not once have I gotten sick. So, last year I got a flu shot, at the behest of my mom. I got so sick over a 2-week time span, I was fucking miserable. I ended up getting a naaaaaaasty upper respiratory infection.

    Up until then, I hadn't had more than a cold for 8 years.

    I swore, never again.

    And this story comes up time and time again my friend. We should all remember, a vaccine is a best guess mix of projected diseases. It is poison, admittedly on a supposed smaller scale, but it is a mix of shit. I leave it up to the tin-foilers to say why, but at the very least, I will not be taking any man-made poisons in the near future that do not have a surgeon general's warning.

    It should read "This will give you lung cancer idiot, have fun" - that I can live with.

    It should not read "Can cause diabetes, cancer, insanity, skin rashes, hallucinations, heart seizure, dizziness, gonorhrea, dry throat, a fondness for abba tunes, loss of limbs or motor function, brain damage, memory loss, nausea, weirdness, excessive hair growth, bad hairstyles, obsessive behaviour, inability to drive tractors, a love of otters, stretch marks, excema,
    ulcers, vertigo, blood clots, a blatant misunderstanding of what commas are for, a fondness for Sandra Bullock movies, the shits, red dick, blue dick, lost dick, spotted dick, an impulsive desire to salute everything, bad corduroys, sea-sickness and a compulsion to masturbate in fast food restaurants."

    The first is on the side of my pack of Marlboros.

    The second is on the side of a pack of aspirin.

    Ten Things You're Not Supposed to Know about the Swine Flu Vaccine
    by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

    Let's not beat around the bush on this issue: The swine flu vaccines now being prepared for mass injection into infants, children, teens and adults have never been tested and won't be tested before the injections begin. In Europe, where flu vaccines are typically tested on hundreds (or thousands) of people before being unleashed on the masses, the European Medicines Agency is allowing companies to skip the testing process entirely.

    And yet, amazingly, people are lining up to take the vaccine, absent any safety testing whatsoever. When the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. announced a swine flu vaccine trial beginning in early August, it was inundated with phone calls and emails from people desperate to play the role of human guinea pigs. The power of fear to herd sheeple into vaccine injections is simply amazing...

    Back in Europe, of course, everybody gets to be a guinea pig since no testing will be done on the vaccine at all. Even worse, the European vaccines will be using adjuvants -- chemicals used to multiply the potency of the active ingredients in vaccines.

    Notably, there is absolutely no safety data on the use of adjuvants in infants and expectant mothers -- the two groups being most aggressively targeted by the swine flu vaccine pushers. The leads us to the disturbing conclusion that the swine flu vaccine could be a modern medical disaster. It's untested and un-tried. Its ingredients are potentially quite dangerous, and the adjuvants being used in the European vaccines are suspected of causing neurological disorders.

    Paralyzed by vaccines
    I probably don't need to remind you that in 1976, a failed swine flu vaccine caused irreparable damage to the nervous systems of hundreds of people, paralyzing many. Medical doctors gave the problem a name, of course, to make it sound like they knew what they were talking about: Guillain-Barre syndrome. (Notably, they never called it "Toxic Vaccine Syndrome" because that would be too informative.)

    But the fact remains that doctors never knew how the vaccines caused these severe problems, and if the same event played out today, all the doctors and vaccine pushers would undoubtedly deny any link between the vaccines and paralysis altogether. (That's what's happening today with the debate over vaccines and autism: Complete denial.)

    In fact, there are a whole lot of things you'll never be told by health authorities about the upcoming swine flu vaccine. For your amusement, I've written down the ten most obvious ones and published them below.

    Ten things you're not supposed to know about the swine flu vaccine
    (At least, not by anyone in authority...)

    #1 - The vaccine production was "rushed" and the vaccine has never been tested on humans. Do you like to play guinea pig for Big Pharma? If so, line up for your swine flu vaccine this fall...

    #2 - Swine flu vaccines contain dangerous adjuvants that cause an inflammatory response in the body. This is why they are suspected of causing autism and other neurological disorders.

    #3 - The swine flu vaccine could actually increase your risk of death from swine flu by altering (or suppressing) your immune system response. There is zero evidence that even seasonal flu shots offer any meaningful protection for people who take the jabs. Vaccines are the snake oil of modern medicine.

    #4 - Doctors still don't know why the 1976 swine flu vaccines paralyzed so many people. And that means they really have no clue whether the upcoming vaccine might cause the same devastating side effects. (And they're not testing it, either...)

    #5 - Even if the swine flu vaccine kills you, the drug companies aren't responsible. The U.S. government has granted drug companies complete immunity against vaccine product liability. Thanks to that blanket immunity, drug companies have no incentive to make safe vaccines, because they only get paid based on quantity, not safety (zero liability).

    #6 - No swine flu vaccine works as well as vitamin D to protect you from influenza. That's an inconvenient scientific fact that the U.S. government, the FDA and Big Pharma hope the people never realize.

    #7 - Even if the swine flu vaccine actually works, mathematically speaking if everyone else around you gets the vaccine, you don't need one! (Because it can't spread through the population you hang with.) So even if you believe in the vaccine, all you need to do is encourage your friends to go get vaccinated...

    #8 - Drug companies are making billions of dollars from the production of swine flu vaccines. That money comes out of your pocket -- even if you don't get the jab -- because it's all paid by the taxpayers.

    #9 - When people start dying in larger numbers from the swine flu, rest assured that many of them will be the very people who got the swine flu vaccine. Doctors will explain this away with their typical Big Pharma logic: "The number saved is far greater than the number lost." Of course, the number "saved" is entirely fictional... imaginary... and exists only in their own warped heads.

    #10 - The swine flu vaccine centers that will crop up all over the world in the coming months aren't completely useless: They will provide an easy way to identify large groups of really stupid people. (Too bad there isn't some sort of blue dye that we could tag 'em with for future reference...)

    The lottery, they say, is a tax on people who can't do math. Similarly, flu vaccines are a tax on people who don't understand health.

    good list.

    It's amazing how influential pharmaceutical companies have become...people go apeshit at the idea of taking shrooms or smoking pot because "oh my god...those are DRUGS! Drugs are DANGEROUS!!" But they'll line up to swallow, inject, or snort anything the drug dealers on TV tell them will help them sleep, get an erection, prevent pregnancy, prevent heartburn, sickness, unhappiness, depression, anxiety or anything else.
    Stay out of it, dude.
