So, you will not be surprised to know that I went digging a bit about this Swine Flu "pandemic" and how it might have got itself into the news....
Roche Laboratories Inc issued two press releases in 2008, both regarding Tamiflu, their 'cure.'
|09-23-2008||ROCHE ANNOUNCES TAMIFLU® ANTIVIRAL FLU MEDICATION IN AMPLE SUPPLY FOR 2008-2009 FLU SEASON|
|06-26-2008||ROCHE INTRODUCES PROGRAM TO FACILITATE CORPORATE PANDEMIC STOCKPILING OF TAMIFLU®|
If you are naive enough to believe that the swine flu is anything approaching a pandemic and that there is no corporate interest behind the panic, stop it. Just stop.
The current world-wide economic 'crisis' has affected all business sectors. Any good business finds a way to increase its sales. Roche simply took advantage of a failing, desperate media, fielded a 'story' that would have the calculated benefit of increasing sales of a product that the company had stockpiled.
In the next HOUR, thousands and thousands will die from AIDS and starvation. In the next hour, internationally, one or two people may succumb to pre-existing conditions that MAY have been agrivated by the flu.
This is NOT a pandemic. This is a sales tactic for Roche.
It simply makes me furious the way that 80% of the western world sticks its barely educated head into the sand, does no reasearch (which the internet is very good for) and believes anything the media serves up as news. What an absolute abdication.
