The Truth About Swine Flu

I seldom write anything that launches a grenade from the get go, but this time I refuse to pull any punches on the Truth and I will spare no one in my criticism of what I believe is unethical propaganda intended deliberately to unsettle the souls of men and propagate a culture of fear.

What is being told to all of you about the so-called swine flu epidemic in Mexico is far from the truth, and it has been inflated out of proportion to paralyze you into addictive news watching for the sake of selling disinformation.

Every year, the common, regular, season flu kills 36,000 Americans. That is only within the borders of our own country, and the numbers are even higher for many other nations of the world. Do the media ever tell people not to travel when the regular flu strikes, or to close the schools down when a kid sneezes more than three times? No.

The simple facts of life and death never sell press, so it is only now that something unusual and uncommon comes along that the panic button is being pushed for the sake of commercialism. The only thing really all that unusual about swine flu is the way it was originally transmitted. As a disease that originated in pigs, it made an interspecies jump to human beings. This is not the only disease in human history to have originated in another species, but since it is the most recent, it provides a great sales pitch for scary information.

Even the facts that are being reported in the media are being grossly distorted.

Did you know that in Mexico there have only been 26 cases of swine flu confirmed in a laboratory? Did you know that in the United State there have been 64? Why is the Mexican media not telling its citizens to avoid the United States then? Because the Mexican media is not driven by greed and distortion the way our own press is.

None of the 152 deaths attributed to the swine flu epidemic in Mexico have actually been confirmed as swine flu. This is not to say that some of them were not caused by the disease, but there is no absolute proof yet.

Swine flu is also just as easy to treat as normal flu. Although there is no vaccine against it yet, any over the counter flu treatment, standard anti-viral flu treatments can minimize its impact on the body just like they can regular flu.

You have a greater chance of being injured by a drunk driver or struck by lightning in your own home town than you do of catching the swine flu in Mexico.

You also have a greater chance of going brain dead by believing everything that the bottom feeders in the media misrepresent as truth than you do of dying in Cabo San Lucas from having a good time.

Book a villa in Cabo San Lucas today, and take a permanent vacation from panic and ignorance in the mind-expanding comforts of true luxury and natural beauty.
