A patient walks into a doctor's office. He's sick. He's coughing. He has a fever.
His muscles ache. The doctor says, "You have the flu. Did you get your flu shot
"No," the patient says.
The doctor gives him a stern look. "Well, you should have. See? You're sick now.
The vaccine would have prevented that."
Again, even by conventional standards, the odds are very high the vaccine would
have made no difference at all. Because the odds are very high this patient doesn't
have an influenza virus.
Overwhelmingly, doctors diagnose the flu with a casual eyeball glance. The patient
has a familiar cluster of symptoms? It's flu season? Okay, it's the flu. Period.
With an ongoing blizzard of psyop-marketing, people accept "flu" and react emotionally
to the propaganda about it.
Another branch of that propaganda is delivered to frighten Americans into getting
a flu shot: the CDC persistently claims that, every year in the US, 36,000 people
die of the flu. We've all read and heard that figure, over and over.
It's a "necessary" statistic for the CDC. They need to promote it. They need to
convince the population that seasonal flu is dangerous.
The American people don't understand that it's a lie, a grossly manufactured delusion
that bears no resemblance to reality.
In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (online) published another shocking
report by Peter Doshi, which spelled out the delusion, and created tremors throughout
the halls of the CDC.
Here is a quote from Doshi's report:
"[According to CDC statistics], 'influenza and pneumonia' took 62,034 lives in 2001---61,777
of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was
the flu virus positively identified."
You see, the CDC has created one category that combines flu and pneumonia deaths.
Why do they do this? Because they disingenuously assume that the pneumonia deaths
are complications stemming from the flu.
This is an absurd assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes.
But even worse, in all the flu and pneumonia deaths, only 18 revealed the presence
of an influenza virus.
Therefore, the CDC could not say, with assurance, that more than 18 people died
of influenza in 2001. Not 36,000 deaths. 18 deaths.
Doshi continues his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: "Between 1979
and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to
3006)." These figures refer to flu separated out from pneumonia.
This death toll is obviously far lower than the parroted 36,000 figure. However,
when you add the sensible condition that lab tests have to actually find the flu
virus in patients, the numbers of flu deaths plummet even further.
In other words, it's all promotion and hype.
