Default H1n1...

Can't stand all the hype on H1N1....everyone is in near panic over this and it's a shame that the government went about this way, to make things worst is now they are temporarly running out of the vaccine!


I bet you the big pharma company's are all laughing there way to the bank on this one!!

Its a pharm company bailout IMO. They set the stage back in spring time. Got everyone scared. Then totally took advantage of people. Now saying there is a shortage so people freak out and want it.

The CBS investigative report included state-by-state test results that revealed some VERY different facts from what the US Centers for Disease Control has been telling the American public.
The CBS report found that H1N1 flu cases are NOT AT ALL as prevalent as feared. A CBS article even states:

"If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn't have H1N1 flu.

In fact, you probably didn't have the flu at all.

The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico."

In most states the percentages ranged from 83 to 98 percent NOT BEING H1N1 or influenza.

As you can see from this CBS News graphic, not only are most cases of suspected flu-like illnesses not H1N1 influenza, they're not influenza at all, but rather some type of cold or upper respiratory infection that looks like influenza but is caused by another type of virus or bacteria!

Quite... a friend of mine called the student office to tell them he had missed classes in the morning because he wasn't feeling well but was going to the evening classes as he was feeling better he told her that he felt some pain in his neck, had a sore throat, the day before and a head ache in the morning, but felt better... he had no other symptoms.... The person he spoke to spent the better part of 10min trying to convince him not to come to school because he could have H1N1...

He was glad to have the day off from school and watch naruto all day!

There is nothing to say that it is necessairly lethal either. It can be treated just like any other flu. Its fear mongering imo but we should be vigilant.

Yes. Sneeze in your sleeve not your hand. Clean you hands often. Avoid touching your face with your hands. I wipe the bar, DBs and station at my gym prior to using it each time. Ill just be extra precautionary and stay on the fence in regards to the vaccination.


Heck I was in Mexico in August, no swine flu here.......

Agree with the comments on the hype. Distrust big pharm companies also. But...also lump CBS and other news stations in with everything else I distrust. The majority of flu tests are rapid flu tests, screening tests like for strep throat, and the majority of the people treated do not get viral cultures or PCR testing to determine the bug.

If the report is talking about rapid flu results, there is anywhere from 30-70% false negatives on the rapid flu test. Not very sensitive at all, but all we have.

From anectdotal experience, this year has been one of the worst for flu-like symptoms/illnesses seen in clinics. Most all survive, but it's a nasty year for the virus, whatever it is.

Be aware, too, that the multi-dose vaccine bottles contain thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative that was linked to autism. Then the gov't said it wasn't associated. Alternative practitioners have a different opinion, and different study results.

Imo, the best thing to do is stay healthy in mind and spirit, turn the TV off, and go to the gym
