Is Bird Flu Only For Bird Brains? ~ Toni Reita ND

Is Bird Flu meant just for Bird Brains?

Perhaps these facts, easily verifiable even if links may change, may further ruffle a few feathers.  Truth exists irrespective of what we believe.

Separating the hype and scare tactics from the facts is crucial in evaluating the true potential for an Avian Flu pandemic..... or maybe that should be called a Planned-emic?

How is pandemic influenza different from seasonal or avian influenza?

Seasonal influenza  generally occurs yearly from November through April, peaking in January and February.  Viruses need to have a warm environment in which to thrive.  You will not get the flu if you are used to living outside in a cold environment, as an extreme example, or keep your room temperatures low in the winter.  These times frames are consistent with more time spent indoors, with warmer temperatures and a poorer air quality.

You can not  "catch"  the flu if you have a robust immune system.  I have never had the flu.

"The Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  states,  "Every year in the United States, on average, 36,000 people die from flu."   Everyone seems to parrot off these numbers as fact.  Year after year, just 36,000 deaths, never more and never less.  Nothing is that static in nature.

But are these numbers accurate?  Hidden within their own statistics is a much different picture.

The CDC has 4 categories of deaths due to influenza.
Here are the statistics for 2002 (most years are similar)

Influenza due to identified influenza virus 99 deaths
Influenza with pneumonia, influenza virus identified 38 deaths
Influenza with other respiratory manifestations, influenza identified 59 deaths
Influenza with other manifestations, influenza identified  2 deaths

That's 99 total influenza deaths for 2002 or 198 influenza plus other diseases deaths for 2002.  Is that even close to the widely accepted and reported yearly 36,000 deaths due to flu?

The CDC also lists the number of people who die from something that is loosely called influenza but was not actually identified as such.  Doctors who don't test to see if the patient died from influenza but think that influenza was the cause.  Do you find that these numbers are irresponsible and irrelevant?  Does it sound like they needed something for the death certificate and thought influenza might fit the ticket.

Here are those numbers for 2002:

Influenza virus not identified: 628
Influenza with pneumonia, virus not identified: 291
Influenza with other respiratory manifestations, influenza not identified: 323
Influenza with other manifestations, influenza not identified:  14

Total unconfirmed but  "suspected"   influenza deaths for 2002 was 1,256.

Combing these numbers still doesn't begin to approach the mythical 36,000 annual influenza deaths.   Most of the confirmed influenza and suspected influenza deaths occurred in the ages between 80-94.

Statistics are magical, they can be massaged to  "prove" almost anything.

How does the CDC extrapolate 198 confirmed influenza deaths in 2002, into it's above mentioned statement of some 36,000 yearly flu deaths?

Your guess is as good as theirs.

In order to massage 198 deaths into 36,000 deaths, the CDC uses magical math and exaggerates by about 182 times the true numbers.

Some health professionals may attempt to justify the numbers by claiming that influenza leads to pneumonia, subsequent diseases and eventual death.  But this is a broad misstatement and not factual.  Obviously not everyone with influenza gets pneumonia.

The American Lung Association claims that pneumonia has more than 30 causes, only one of which is the influenza virus, doesn't that means that there are at least 29 other possible causes?

A CDC spokesman, Mr. Curtis Allen told Insight Magazine

"There are a couple problems with determining the number of deaths related to the flu because most people don't die from influenza - they die from "omplications" of influenza - so the numbers of deaths are based on mathematical formulas.  We don't know exactly how many people get the flu each year because it's not a reportable disease  and most physicians don't do the test  [nasal swab] to indicate whether the symptoms are caused by influenza."

So that magical math  "36,000 deaths nationwide"   starts with a factual  "we don't know"   and grows into from  "complications"  which is often Big Pharma speak for pharmaceutical , and results in a computer generated, gross misrepresentation, wild-pulled-from-the-sky-guess, created out of thin air "..... garbage in, garbage out, rather than an actual number.

Pandemic Flu - Can occur at any time during the year and is the result of a new influenza strain to which there is no developed viral immunity and for which a "protective"  vaccine has yet to be created.  It rapidly spreads from person to person  (not from pig to person, chicken to person, seal to person, whale to person, horse to person or cat to person)  until large geographical regions are infected.

Before a Pandemic can occur there must be sustained person to person transmission of the infection.   All confirmed cases of Avian flu have occurred via animal to human transmission.  With only one case of potential human to human transmission and my personal guess on that was that the poultry worker took home an infected chicken which infected another family member, but to admit that would cause him to be fired.

There is no substantiated evidence that  "sooner or later"  the H5N1 strain, or any other strain, will mutate into a strain that can be easily passed between humans.  That's as irresponsible and scientifically unsupported as saying "sooner or later"  humans are bound to grow wings so they can avoid standing in long lines at the airport!

There have been three flu pandemics in the 1900s:

   *   The Spanish Flu in 1918 which killed 55,000 in the U.S.
   *   The Asian Flu in 1957 which killed 69,800 in the U.S.
   *   The Hong Kong Flu in 1969 which resulted in 33,800 deaths in the U.S.

There is substantial data supporting that all of these pandemics were vaccine induced.  And of course the actual numbers for influenza deaths without other complications would be much significantly lower as in the CDC's recent examples.

Avian Flu infects birds.  Millions of poultry and other foul have been slaughtered because of it.  Could his really be about commerce?

The death rate from H5N1 infection is highly overstated.  According to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization  (FAQ),  the avian influenza virus is easier to destroy than other influenza viruses.

It appears that it is very sensitive to detergents  i.e., soap  which destroy the outer fat-containing layer of the virus.  This layer is needed to enter cells of animals and, therefore, destroys the infectivity.  So wash your hands before touching your face always, but especially if you happen to work on a Industrial poultry farm.

How many confirmed deaths from Human  "Bird Flu"  have been reported to date?

"Although avian influenza A viruses usually do not infect humans, more than 600 confirmed cases   (not deaths)  of human infection with avian influenza viruses have been reported since 1997.  Human infections with avian influenza A viruses detected since 1997 have not resulted in sustained human to human transmission."   excerpted from:  CDC Report

Also included in above link is CDC recommendations for Prevention of Avian Influenza A Virus Infections of Humans.  "Persons who work with poultry or respond to avian influenza outbreaks among poultry and are therefore potentially exposed to infected or potentially infected poultry are advised to follow recommended biosecurity and infection control practices including careful attention to  hand hygiene, "

Do you work with industrial poultry or respond to avian influenza outbreaks among industrial poultry factories?   Reported by the World Health Organization from Dec 26, 1997 to October 24, 2005 there were 121 confirmed H5N1 infections with 62 deaths, for an apparent death rate of 52 percent.  So all of this fear mongering for 62 world wide deaths in almost a six year period?

Recent Internet World Stats  (Usage and Population Statistics),  the population of Asia is 3,622,994,130.  If you divide 65 alleged deaths of "bird flu"  into the total population of 3,622,994,130 that is about  ONE DEATH FOR EVERY 54 MILLION PEOPLE.

Pandemic or Propagqnda?  Any Why?  Qui Bono?

Using those same numbers it would be similar to a epidemic of "bird flu"  in the united States with only 5-6 deaths.

Is that rational?  Is that responsible or mere speculation?  Could there be some behind the scenes agendas?  Qui bono?

To see who might benefit, follow the money.

To add another comparative perspective.

   *  According to American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, each year in the US skateboarding injuries cause about 50,000 visits to emergency departments.

   *  In addition, more than 1500 children need to be hospitalized for head injuries or disabilities that frequently result in loss of vision, hearing or speech, as well as changes in thinking and behavior.

So there are 50,000 skateboard emergency room visits yearly  and a potential for 5-6 bird flu deaths.   Which do you consider to be more probable, dangerous or risky?  Skateboarding accidents or "catching"  bird flu and dying from it?

What are the symptoms of bird flu in humans?

According to  (WHO)  World Health Organization  the symptoms of avian influenza (Type H5N1) are:

     *  Fever
     *  Sore throat
     *  Cough
     *  possibly, viral pneumonia

According to the  (CDC)  Centers for Disease Control who give the following  symptoms for avian flu:

     *  Fever
     *  Cough
     *  Sore throat and muscle aches

Do you find these symptoms alarmingly vague and non specific?  Are they the same symptoms for seasonal influenza?

Is it reasonable that there has been debate on potential mandatory vaccines, martial law and quarantines for these symptoms?

Slaughtering thousands of marketable and edible poultry for these symptoms?  What does that do to the supply and demand of chicken, raise or lower prices>

A healthy person can have a temperature over 100 degrees on a hot day and not have influenza.

A cough can be triggered from allergies, asthma, pollution, bronchitis, pneumonia, chemtrails, medications, pesticides, smoking, dust, pet dander, mold, a cold or dozens of other imbalances, since it didn't define what type of cough, dry, chronic, acute, productive etc would be associated with bird flu.

Muscle aches can also be from numerous other reasons other than Avian flu.

Is There a tested, and proven safe, Avian Flu Vaccine Available?
If there were would you want to risk your life taking it?

The CDC states:  "Yearly, adults can average one to three and children three to six influenza like illnesses  (ILIs).  The vaccine does not prevent influenza like illnesses caused by infectious agents other than influenza  [strains found in the shot],  and many persons vaccinated against influenza will still get the flu."  Translated that means a vaccine can ONLY have the potential to be effective against a particular strain and there are over 800 strains, and you might still get the flu.

My research indicates that among the conditions associated with
or that can be triggered by vaccinations are:

Don't take my word, do your own research.

     *  The disease the vaccine was manufactured to prevent, ie rabies, influenza, hepatitis etc.
     *  autism
     *  skin allergies
     *  bladder infections
     *  auto immune disorders
     *  ADD
     *  heart attacks
     *  cancer
     *  thyroid disease
     *  Addison's disease
     *  diabetes
     *  leukemia
     *  lymphoma
     *  immunological disorders
     *  sensitivity to pollen or allergens

George Starr White M D   "Take the profit out of the manufacture and administration of serums and vaccines and they would soon be condemned even by those who are now using them"

Dr Jean Dodds DVM a world expert in canine vaccine reactions.  "In veterinary medicine, evidence implicating vaccines in triggering immune-mediated and other chronic disorders vaccinosis is compelling.  Recent vaccinations with single or combination modified live virus vaccines are increasingly recognized contributors to immune mediated blood disease, bone marrow failure, and organ dysfunction."

Dr Richard Pitcairm  "Giving a vaccine to a dog with cancer is like pouring gasoline on a fire.  I believe the attitudes and feelings people now have about vaccinations are the same ones people used to have about bleedings.  The prominent doctors, all the most important authorities, agreed that the bleedings were absolutely beneficial.  Anyone who dared to question that assumption was ridiculed.  Now we look back on that practice with amazement...I trust we will be doing the same thing someday when we look back on the practice of vaccination."

Vaccines are very beneficial to the bottom lines of the companies that manufacture them and the physicians that dispense them.

It wouldn't be a challenge to write volumes on this Fowl hoax perpetuated at our peril.  Dr. Sherri J. Tenpenny states   "Learn the truth behind the so called bird flu pandemic!  The powers that be used the exact same tactics back in 1976 when President Ford asked every man woman and child to roll up their sleeves and get their shot of protection against the Swine Flu hoax!"

Dr Lorraine Day, a former orthopedic surgeon and department head at a major university, now shuns the modern medical system and Big Pharma in particular states:  "ALL VACCINES ARE POISON"

"Vaccines contain decomposed protein such as that which is taken from pustules on sick animals or putrefied eggs mixed with deadly drugs such as carbolic acid  (phenol),  mercury, formaldehyde  (formalin), etc.   Decomposed proteins can cause botulism, salmonella or other types of body poisoning.  It's no wonder people drop dead after the shots.

All doctors who know the subject know and admit that all vaccines are highly toxic, and the after effects are unpredictable.   No doctor, laboratory technician or scientist can possibly determine the reaction the vaccine will have on each individual.  It is impossible to know, in advance, the toleration point for poison which each person has.   Therefore it is a deadly gamble, like Russian roulette, as to whether the vaccine will cause instant death  (and that sometimes happens), paralysis a few hours later, or cancer, heart trouble or TB a few years later, or kidney disease, liver damage, insanity  (post vaccinal encephalitis inflammation of the brain caused by vaccines)  or some other chronic disease somewhere along the way.   Vaccine is even worse than Russian roulette because that kills only a few and they are usually other crooks, while vaccination kills thousands of innocent and trusting people.

DRUGS CANNOT CURE..     All chemicals and drugs are inert, foreign substances which act as irritants when taken internally.  They do not have power to act in the body or cure anything.  The only reason why they seem to cause some changes which people like to believe are curative is that the internal defense system tries to eject this unwanted foreign matter, and that sets up a reverse action to remedy the harm done by the drugs or chemicals.  This taxes the bodily reserves and delays healing.  In the case of some drugs it makes healing impossible."

What are the results of the Avian Flu hysteria and who benefits  (Qui bono)?

     *  Political psy op conditioning the world for a pandemic or perhaps a Medically made epidemic
     *  A significant amount of the food supply has been destroyed in undeveloped countries, controlling food markets
     *  obscene power grabs, loss of personal freedom, invoking emergency powers
     *  military or deployed response teams with forced quarantines and mandatory vaccinations
     *  millions in grants and tax incentives to develop new pharmaceuticals/vaccines with forced consumers
     *  Citizens world wide who feel terror, chaos and insecurity are a bit more obedient
     *  Built up acceptance of the  "inevitability"  of Avian Flu with forced vaccinations & quarantine
     *  Desensitize Americans to allowing the US military to illegally perform police actions on US soil, oops don't they do that now?
     *  Biodefense/Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development act that exempts Big Pharma from liability, exempts Freedom of Information Act and acts in      secrecy with full protection.

Pretty easy to make up different scenarios of who might benefit, use your own imagination.

Who loses?  The citizens of the world, particularly united States citizens.

Ruls For Separating Facts From Media Propaganda

     *  If the title, or articles, ends with a question mark it's pure speculation and allows the author to crank up his wildest imagination in developing a scenario to cause fear and panic.
     *  Speculative terms such as  "could"  "sooner or later"  "inevitability"  or other  "what ifs"  indicate speculation and the author can choose any outcome or leave it to the reader to use their own vivid imaginations.

     *  If the title, or substance of the article, is highly inflammatory, using words such as  "mysterious" "dangerous" "suspected" "world wide" "millions of deaths."  Ask yourself if this is designed to whip up fear or to give factual information.

Research the, possibilities and agendas yourself.  Time consuming but rewarding.  And always ask Qui Bono?  Who benefits from you believing something?

In summary, and in my opinion, based on the numbers, statistics and facts provided by the CDC, UN and WHO, the transmission mechanisms, based on the species barrier limitation of transmission, based on the current factual 1 death in 54 million persons, the statistically probability of there being a naturally occurring Avian Influenza pandemic are impossible.

The most effective way to avoid Avian Flu contamination is to throw out the TV and newspaper and use your gray matter for personal research.
