Avian Flu: The bad news first
Well, it's flu season again. Only this time, we hear everyone talking about avian flu...the Super flu which is expected to wreck havoc across our land in the not so distant months.
So what is avian flu? Avian flu is bird flu. Yes, you read that right, "Avian flu is bird flu." And why might that be such bad news?
If you pursue the news much, you will read that the deadliest disease in history is widely regarded as the Spanish Flu epidemic which killed 40 million people in just months. Scientists now believe the epidemic was an avian flu pandemic. In other words, the virus came from birds - it is believed - and a virus similar to this one -called the "H5N1" (a form of avian flu virus). Its origins? Most scientists agree it originated in Asia, as this one.
Flu comes every season. It comes in one of two forms, Type A or Type B influenza. Type A is the more potent of these kinds of flu, and avian flu is Type A. These strains kill.
The current avian flu bug is infecting and spreading throughout the poultry industry in Asia. Why so often in Asia? Simply put...and here is a key to understanding how to deal with avian flu - poultry farms are absolutely filthy. The stench from such farms, especially those throughout Asia, can be detected a mile away. Those farms are packed with animals which are weak with compromised, weakened, immune systems.
Let these two phrases sink in together: avian flu and weakened immune systems. Whether we are dealing with the aftermath of the horrible conditions and weakened immune systems of millions who survived World War I or the horrible conditions of Asian and European poultry farms and their millions of animals with weakened immune systems, the key to this potential pandemic is "weakened immune systems and avian flu".
Because of the rapid spread and highly dangerous nature of the avian flu to birds, millions of flocks have been destroyed throughout the afflicted countries. However, that is simply not working because migratory birds are carrying the avian flu to distant lands, thus spreading its contagion. Interestingly, the migratory birds are not dying like the chickens. Why? Because their immune systems are much stronger, we are told by scientists.
Let that one sink in too: avian flu is not killing those animals so readily which have strong immune systems. Hum...avian flu and immune systems...Could be we have something here.
Incidentally, there have been only about a hundred deaths from avian flu worldwide. It is almost impossible for avian flu to make the transition from bird to human easily.
Avian Flu: Now for the really bad news
Of course, as soon as there is the slightest danger -avian flu or otherwise -our government jumps into high gear to infect every one of us, if possible, with its antiviral drug program against the slightest hint of avian flu. To date, everyone of the influenza drugs have proven worthless...or worse, against avian flu or any other kind of flu.
Note this statement from the former Chief Vaccine Control at the Federal Food and Drug Administration:
There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far
developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack
of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they
are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.
--Dr. J. Anthony Morris
I wonder if this will apply to the alleged avian flu "antidote". Note: The last few decades have seen a dramatic shift in fatalities from seasonal flu (some of which are avian flu).
Researchers now know the increase in the population does NOT account for the doubling of the seasonal average death toll from flu (avian flu or otherwise). Less than 20,000 were dying per year for decades. But, since the advent of the flu shot, averages of over 40,000 people per year have been dying.
One suggestion is a combination of two factors: the continued impairment of the immune system of the average American as witnessed by the multitude of epidemic diseases among us (not present in appreciable amounts in previous decades). The second factor follows below... (like the second Horseman of the Apocalypse).
Let's see...one thing we do know about flu vaccines. They are not proven to work... No, two things we know...Yes, yes. They can kill. Just as surely as the avian flu can kill.
Many authorities believe the flu shot actually weakens the immune system...ah, there it is again...the immune system weakened.
Why is that? Let's see. The ingredients in the flu vaccine (remember this when dealing with the avian flu) include:
" Formaldehyde, you know...embalming fluid known to cause cancer.
" Aluminum, the very metal related to Alzheimer's disease, cancers of numerous types and traumatic seizures.
" Carbolic Acid: a terribly caustic poison.
" Ethylene Glycol: You will definitely need this fluid this winter, but please only use it as anti-freeze for your car, as it was designed to be used originally.
" Mercury: This is present in the vaccine ingredient called thimerosol. This is a known medical crippler and killer. It kills brain cells and immune cells and is linked to childhood brain and nervous diseases because of its use in VACCINES.
" Vaccines for use in avian flu are grown on virus strains developed from pus-laden animal tissue mixed with the above mentioned deadly chemicals.

Is it any wonder the drug companies involved sought to be legally protected from law suits by those who might use these drugs against avian flu?
Forgive my skepticism, but I have seen from the inside of the medical/drug establishment, the fanatical zeal to make money as a first priority... Been there, opposed that. Avian flu treatment will not be any different.
Don't count on the Hippocratic Oath to protect you from avian flu. There is big money in these drugs. Billions. And it is always suspicious when a drug company seeks lawsuit immunity (hum, appropriate wording here) BEFORE THE FACT (before its use against avian flu!)
Avian Flu: Now for the good news (finally).
Avian flu was not in view when this following statement was made. However, read it carefully with avian flu in mind.
In Congressional testimony concerning the potential of bio-terrorism attack upon the United States, Dr. H. Reginald McDaniel stated,
In instances of unusual, epidemic, or virulent infectious agent exposure,
glyconutrient supplementation has been found effective for enhancing
general immune functions and defense. When supplied at higher levels
than available in nature, sugars needed for cellular synthesis can take
innate defense systems to a much higher level that are effective against
In other words, if we were attacked by an enemy with bio weapons -such as avian flu- we could find protection with glyconutrition. This is a powerful, non-prescriptive antidote possibility against avian flu.
Glyconutrition enhances the immune system's natural defenses so powerfully that cancers, flu, and other UNDER ACTIVE IMMUNE DISORDERS can be stopped. The evidence is already in place. There is no guesswork here. Avian flu is flu, Type A, precisely the kind of flu glyconutrition is designed to offset.
Glyconutrition is effective - presumably against avian flu too - and has no side effects. It is a food substance, proven to be vital for human survival. There are no less than four Nobel Prizes to substantiate the presence and human need for glyconutrition.
There is an abundance of evidence showing its effectiveness against all kinds of disease, including flu. It doesn't attack the flu directly. It strengthens the immune defenses - killer T cells and others - and they kill the tumors, flu, herpes simplex, shingles, strep, TB, bacterial infections, cancers, parasitic diseases... Quite a list of killers thus killed.
Guess what I am going to take to protect my family this year against avian flu...if it develops?
