Swine Flu Pandemic? Swine Flu Cases Falling Across the UK

"Across the UK the number of new cases of swine-flu are falling. Department of Health figures show that in the past week there were 5,000 infections in England - compared to over 100,000 at the start of the month."

BBC News, Friday, 28 August 2009 06:54 UK

Is this what the WHO and the CDC mean by a pandemic?

I am not trying to be glib about swine flu, or any influenza. I understand that the flu, swine, avian, or whatever variety of flu I contracted many times over the course of my life in Canada, can kill some people. Flu complications may bring my brief visit to this planet to an end some day but I have difficulty seeing why people around the world have been whipped into a panic over this specific flu, billions of dollars invested, testing of the safety and efficacy of vaccines rushed ... and possibly compromised ... based on available rate of infection and death information to date. And their previous track record at pandemic prediction ... the 1976 swine flu "pandemic" for example ... is not that great.

The figures below are taken from the Public Health Agency of Canada web site and indicate the number of people that have died from Swine Flu (H1N1) across Canada:

Every death is a tragedy for that person and those that know and love them. But the figures above, for an estimated population of 33,760,560 according to Statistics Canada's daily estimate, and like the UK information from the BBC above, are not what I think of when I think of a pandemic. The flu does kill significant numbers of people every year. In New Brunswick where I live we have been exposed to the Swine Flu already. A number of cadets visiting nearby Base Gagetown this summer contracted Swine Flu. They all survived. And New Brunswick has not, to date, recorded a single death, (yes, thankfully), but this humble, ignorant, non medical person has a hard time seeing the information to date as justifying the panic, the billions of dollars spent around the planet on vaccines, and their rush into production, with possible compromises to the safety and efficacy of the vaccines.

But what do I know. I am just a humble parent. And they are intelligent, well informed public health authorities who know better. If the WHO, the CDC and the Public Health Agency of Canada say there is a Swine Flu pandemic then I guess there must be a Swine Flu pandemic.

Someone has made a great deal of money. Guess who? All paid for with tax dollars too. Never believed the whole pandemic thing for a minute. I am sorry most people don't know a scam when they see one.

It has been said our movement for Autism Advocacy will not gain traction until we make economic impact. I say we start with the word Mercury... Second most neurotoxic substance on earth. It should be locked up not in or on our fish, light bulbs, Cars, or Vaccines. Poison Mercury Boycott...#PMB How much longer... We have waited 66 years for answers

H1N1 is a man-made virus that was released onto the world by the very corporation that manufactures the vaccine. There is billions to be made in injecting us with a squaline infested immune system train wrecker.

If you take the swine flu shot yo are doomed for life.

I have the cure for Autism. Quit subjecting your children to vaccinations from Big Pharma. When you inject a chemical toxin that contains mercury as a preservative what the hell do you expect?

Here is a fact for you. You do not find Autism in the Amish. Why? They do not allow their bodies to be injected with the toxic soup known as vaccinations.
