CDC annual flu death lie

[2010 Jan] Sir Liamís Skeleton: the UK Department of Health Fabricates Flu Deaths to Boost Vaccination By John Stone

"Every year in the United States, on average.......approximately 36,000 people die from flu."  CDC October 6, 2004 http://www.cdc.gov/flu/keyfacts.htm

Number of flu deaths 753 (2002) CDC    http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr52/nvsr52_13.pdf

Every year, just prior to the impending "flu season," the CDC and their acquiescent media pawns terrorize the American public with false claims regarding annual flu deaths. The CDC boldly asserts that 36,000 people die every year from the flu. Such scare tactics are calculated to increase flu vaccine sales. However, according to the CDC's own official records documented in National Vital Statistics Reports, only a few hundred people die from influenza (flu) on an average year. And many of these deaths occur in people with preexisting conditions, weakened immune systems, and the elderly. Annual Flu Deaths: The Big Lie By Neil Z. Miller

Some flu vaccine fearmongering[2009 Oct] Government Launches Deceptive Swine Flu Propaganda Blitz To Counter Growing Criticism from Scientific and Medical Community by Richard Gale & Gary Null   If we take the combined figure of flu and pneumonia deaths for the period of 2001, and add a bit of spin to the figures, we are left believing that 62,034 people died from influenza. The actual figures determined by Peter Doshi, then at Harvard University, are 61,777 died from pneumonia and only 257 from flu. Even more amazing, among those 257 cases only 18 were confirmed positive for influenza. A separate study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics for the flu periods between 1979 through 2002 revealed the true range of flu deaths were between 257 and 3006, for an average of 1,348 per year.
