So WHO Declares A Swine Flu (H1N1) Pandemic

It's amazing who much press this is getting. First the virus is Swine Flu now they want to call it H1N1. Let's start with the first issue in the 70's "Swine Flu" was present and coincidentally more people died from the vaccine than the virus. History is extremely important and within reason we can make assumptions on the future. Currently the Parental Consent Act, HR 2218 serves as a model for states and a requirement for the federal government: no parent shall be coerced into allowing the medication of their child if they are not willing to have the child so treated and no federal monies may be used for such screening or treatments. Parents who do not wish to have their children medicated must be protected from child abuse of neglect actions by schools and other agencies. Now slow down and think technology is progressing yet we as a nation are getting sicker. As a drug corporation the obligation as a company to shareholders is to make money. If a cure is found there is no reoccurring revenue hence the reason cures never seem to come about. Upton Sinclair explains it best with this famous quote: "It is DIFFICULT to get a man to understand when his SALARY depends on UPON HIS NOT UNDERSTANDING IT."

We have to ask do they not understand or are they protecting the company and its shareholders. Could you imagine what would happen if everyone knew about a cure for cancer. That would be wonderful for mankind however, bad for business. If you are an objective person with no agenda the answers are not hard to find.

Our bodies are perfect for fighting any and all diseases provided we do one thing. The single most important thing we can do is eat real food. Let's define real food in a day and age were a burger is thought to be food. Real food consists of any consumable items that help and support our bodies natural abilities to prevent and cure sickness. With that being said when foods are genetically modified aka (GMO) we never know as consumers what is happening to the nutritional values of the foods. Hence we never know what effect these foods have had on our bodies. Stop and think we have pesticides for food if it kills bugs what is it slowly doing to our bodies.

Now let’s get back to the “Swine Flu” and pending legislation we need to monitor closely:

HR 2218 - Parental Consent Act
HR 6635 - Genetically Engineered Food Right To Know Act
HR 6636 - The Genetically Engineered Safety Act
HR 6637 - The Genetically Engineered Technology Farmer Protection Act
HR 7120 - Science Free Speech Act
A2933 - To Restrict Free Speech About Nutrition
S324 - Mother's Act
S1941 - To Restrict Free Speech About Nutrition

All of these center around two things food and vaccines and coincidentally we have a global pandemic. Take a look at tuberculosis death numbers compared to Swine Flu and ask why it does not get coverage. When reading these understand that there is not going to be media about this their focus is on Octomom and stories of that nature. Whenever politics gets involved with health there is a problem. If they can not figure out how to balance a budget why focus on our choices of health and nutrition. We all as citizens want a chance at good nutrition and clean drinking water. If you choose to smoke you have a choice, if you choose to eat poorly it is your choice and these bills center around either removing or giving choices. The last thing for older people growing up as a kid do you ever remember so many drug commericals on TV. Grandma use to get the castrol oil or iodine and after tasting or feeling the burn we would be ok.
