Setting the people up to die: A conspiracy of silence about
swine flu natural remedies

(NaturalNews) It's emblazoned across the front page of USA Today, just
underneath a subhead declaring Michael Jackson was, indeed, killed by a drug
overdose: "Flu could infect half of USA." The article goes on to describe the
predicted number of deaths expected in the U.S. (30,000 - 90,000 Americans) as
well as the actions being taken by the government to protect Americans from the
coming swine flu pandemic.
That advice reads sort of like a comic book of health care advice for
kindergarteners: Wash your hands, cover your mouth if you cough and let "the
grownups" take care of the rest by injecting you with a vaccine. Curiously
absent from all the health
advice being handed out on the
swine flu by the White
House, the CDC, the WHO and
even the FDA is any mention of
Vitamin D or other
natural remedies that offer enormous protections from influenza
The absence of this information from virtually all the advice being handed out
to the American public is increasingly suspicious. If a
pandemic flu is, indeed,
threatening to infect half the U.S. population, and if most of the population is
deficient in a nutrient known to strongly prevent
wouldn't it make good sense to make a few announcements encouraging Americans to
raise their vitamin D levels throughout the coming
It is a well-known medical fact, of course, that influenza always gets worse
during the winter months North of the equator and the summer months South of the
equator (which are really called their "winter" months). This is because as
sunlight hours lessen during the winter, the people living there become vitamin
D deficient and are susceptible to influenza infections of all kinds.
The information resources backing this are easy to find. Even our own
NaturalPedia.com website reveals a large amount of information on natural
defenses against influenza (http://www.naturalpedia.com/influen...).
NaturalNews.com, of course, offers a wealth of articles on Vitamin D (http://www.naturalnews.com/vitamin_...).
In the realm of peer-reviewed medical literature, searching
Google Scholar for
"influenza" and "vitamin D" returns tens of thousands of results (http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q...).
In particular, one study appearing in these search results is entitled Epidemic
influenza and vitamin D. It was published in 2006 in the journal Epidemiology
and Infection (2006, 134:6:1129-1140 Cambridge University Press) and its
abstract reads as follows:
In 1981, R. Edgar Hope-Simpson proposed that a 'seasonal stimulus' intimately
associated with solar
radiation explained the remarkable seasonality of epidemic influenza. Solar
radiation triggers robust seasonal vitamin D production in the skin; vitamin D
deficiency is common in the winter, and activated vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D, a
steroid hormone, has profound effects on human immunity. 1,25(OH)2D acts as an
immune system modulator, preventing excessive expression of inflammatory
cytokines and increasing the 'oxidative burst' potential of macrophages. Perhaps
most importantly, it dramatically stimulates the expression of potent
anti-microbial peptides, which exist in neutrophils, monocytes, natural killer
cells, and in epithelial cells lining the respiratory tract where they play a
major role in protecting the lung from infection. Volunteers inoculated with
live attenuated influenza virus are more likely to develop fever and serological
evidence of an immune response in the winter. Vitamin D deficiency predisposes
children to respiratory infections. Ultraviolet radiation (either from
artificial sources or from sunlight) reduces the incidence of viral respiratory
infections, as does cod liver oil (which contains vitamin D). An interventional
study showed that vitamin D reduces the incidence of respiratory infections in
children. We conclude that vitamin D, or lack of it, may be Hope-Simpson's
Why the silence?
Vitamin D is perhaps the single most powerful nutrient in the known universe for
preventing influenza, and yet the
Obama White House won't dare
utter a word about it to the
even in the face of a potentially devastating global pandemic that could be
largely halted by vitamin D.
It begs the question: Why the silence?
There are really only three possible explanations for why the White House and
U.S. health authorities would refuse to tell the public about vitamin D as a
smart defense against the influenza pandemic:
Reason #1) They don't know about vitamin D. This, of course, is impossible. The
medical literature is saturated with respectable studies demonstrating the
anti-viral and immune
modulating effects of vitamin D. For someone in the field of infectious
disease to be unaware of
vitamin D's protective benefits would be downright laughable. It would be like a
car mechanic not knowing what a fuel filter was.
Reason #2) They do know about vitamin D, and they want to tell people, but they
don't know how or don't have the money. This explanation, too, is ridiculous.
Telling the people the truth about vitamin D is as simple (and as free) as just
calling a White House press conference, inviting a vitamin D expert like Dr.
Michael Holick to say a few words, and putting the message out to the mainstream
media. In 24 hours, all the newspaper headlines across the country could print
headlines like, "White House urges Americans to boost vitamin D before swine flu
strikes." The whole nation could be properly informed about vitamin D in less
than 72 hours.
But that will never happen. And why? Because of reason #3...
Reason #3) They know about vitamin D but they are intentionally withholding
information from the American people In essence, they want to keep the American
people nutritionally illiterate so that they remain "victims" in the coming
influenza crisis. Because of who's involved in this (the White House, FDA, CDC,
WHO and many others), it cannot be called anything other than a
conspiracy of silence
about influenza and vitamin D.
What could be the purpose behind such a conspiracy of silence? Clearly its only
purpose is to maximize profits to the
drug companies and
/ or maximize the number of deaths that occur when the swine flu strikes North
America this coming
But why, you might ask, would these so-called authorities wish to see more
Health care reform via a viral pandemic
To answer that, just look at who is most likely to die from swine flu
infections: The obese... the people who, generally speaking, are placing the
greatest financial burden on the government-funded
health care system.
The coming swine flu pandemic has the potential to do what no politician could
ever get away with: Slash
spending virtually overnight by simply killing off those who burden the
system the most.
Call it Health Care Darwinism if you like. Survival of the fittest married with
an evil plot. Let the most costly health care consumers die in a (planned?)
pandemic, and suddenly your nation is pulled back from the brink of total
The White House just revised its budget numbers this week, by the way.
Government deficit spending for this year is up over 300 percent from last year,
reaching an eye-popping, mind-boggling $1.9 trillion in new
debt in just a single year!
This runaway debt spending is, by any honest calculation, simply unsustainable.
It will destroy America's future, leaving the nation penniless. To save America,
something drastic must be done. Something as drastic as, say, killing off those
who place the greatest cost burdens on the U.S. health care system (which
represents roughly twenty percent of all U.S. government spending).
So how do you really cut costs in America? Recognize that roughly one-fifth of
U.S. government spending goes to support the "disease industry." And the vast
majority of that money is spent taking care of chronically ill individuals who
are typically obese and nutrient deficient. Releasing a bio-engineered influenza
virus into the wild is a sure way to cut health care spending in the long run by
killing those who place the highest burdens on the health care system. While it
costs a fortune to take care of a chronically ill patient for two decades, it
costs a mere pittance to see them die in a hospital emergency room while they
succumb to H1N1 influenza.
Swine flu, it might be said from a cold-hearted evil government point of view,
is a cost-effective and quick way to slash health care spending without needing
to take any responsibility for making such cuts yourself. Let the virus do the
dirty work, killing off the most vulnerable in society and leaving more money
behind for Big
Government to get even bigger. Think governments couldn't do this? Then you
don't know governments well enough.
Now, in defense of the Obama administration, I very much doubt that President
Barack Obama himself would be capable of masterminding such an evil plot to kill
off the American people in a planned influenza pandemic. This is the kind of
thing that usually takes place behind the scenes, where powerful men (far more
powerful than Obama) meet in dark places to plan and plot the future of the
world. If it is in their interests to see the population suffer through a
pandemic, they will make sure one appears at the appropriate time.
It could also be a joint arrangement between powerful corporations and Big
Government. The corporate drug companies want to make money off the vaccine
sales. The government wants to save money by killing off the top recipients of
expensive health care services (who also wouldn't burden Medicare down the road,
either). By working together, they can both get what they want. One pandemic
serves both masters, and it's all funded by taxpayer dollars to boot!
This is still a theory, not proof
I can't prove that such a plot is actually under way, by the way. When
discussing conspiracy theories, I'm always careful to point out that I have no
specific proof that such a nefarious plot actually exists. There is, however,
quite a lot of supporting circumstantial evidence that should raise the eyebrows
of anyone paying attention. For example, there is this training brochure that
recently surfaced (http://www.new-fields.com/ISFC/broc...)
which describes procedures for "conducting morgue operations" and "activating
fatality management operations."
This same document also describes training points that cover:
• Breakdown of public services
• Medical supplies shortages
• Unwillingness to follow government orders
... among other fascinating things. The conference this advertises was held
August 19 - 20 in Washington D.C. by a company called New-Fields that holds,
among other things, an "Iraq Aviation & Defense Summit" (http://www.new-fields.com/iraq_avia...)
featuring senior U.S. military personnel and touting "one to one meetings with
This isn't the first time a company with ties to the U.S. military has been
found to be involved in the swine flu pandemic. My previous article on
the DynCorp / NIH patent link, revealing that a key influenza vaccine patent was
jointly owned by the National Institutes of Health and a high-level private U.S.
military contractor named DynCorp. You can read that article here:
So what does it all mean? Like a lot of things, it just depends what you choose
I don't know if I believe the evil, nefarious conspiracy theory described as a
possibility in this article. But neither do I trust my government (and I sure
don't trust public health officials). So I'm doing exactly what I recommend
everybody else do: Take charge of your own swine flu defenses by boosting your
nutrition and sunlight
exposure. Store some food, water and other basic
just in case. Be prepared to survive and thrive during the coming pandemic,
regardless of what happens around you.
Just because everybody else is planning on becoming a victim of circumstance
doesn't mean you have to. With a little basic planning and some medical common
sense, you can see yourself through this pandemic with ease. No sweat.
