In all the smoke and mirrors… shards of truth.
The Natural Solutions Foundation continually updates and expands it coverage of the breaking news, information and disinformation about the forthcoming, supposedly “inevitable pandemic” which is now acknowledged by such luminaries as the head of the CDC to be certain and very rapidly approaching, although whether it will be from Avian Flu or not, what the strain will be if it is, and exactly when and where it will appear are unknowns, at least to the general public. The logical impossibility of these statements is overlooked by frantic members of the public, who are officially advised to avoid complacency (whatever that means) and lay in stocks of food, water and medicines (which insurance companies will not cover if they will supply people for more than 30 days).

Internet Abuzz over Weaponized Avian Flu – http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?p=846
Estimate of Situation 2.1 – http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=794
Estimate of Situation 1 – http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?p=755
The announcement of a new Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA organism across Australia that appears to target healthy adolescents and not only infect, but kill them makes the waffle wording of the CDC’s latest statement particularly ominous. Has MRSA also been weaponized?
Since the causal role of industrial food production practices (including vaccinating birds “against” Avian Flu) is coming under scrutiny as a principle cause of Avian Flu outbreaks, it is relevant to note that antibiotic resistent organisms like Staphylococcus aureus are made that way through the subclinical administration of antibiotics to the animals we eat. The antibiotics they receive, and which we eat, either changed or rendered more toxic, in their eggs, flesh and milk, are given to them to keep them alive in the inhumane and unsanitary conditions in which they live. They are so crowded and poorly nourished that their immune systems collapse from the filth, “food” and stress under which they are reared so that the profit of the “farms” will be increased.
Food and health experts have long warned that the use of sub clinical antibiotics, and the “farming” practices that make them necessary would create plagues of resistant organisms which we had no bullets left to fire at once they made their way into the population. MRSA is only the first of many.
How interesting that MRSA vaccines have been under development for several years. For example, on Feb. 2, 2007, a new company devoted to producing MSRA vaccines was created in the UK. See commercialization items below.
In 2007, Dr. Anthony Fiori presented a lecture refrenced by the CDC called “Introductory Session on Influenza Vaccines” presented to its influential Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in which he noted:
Compared to previous 2 seasons [2004-2005 and 2005-2006 - REL]
â€“ Increase in mean age to 7 years (from 4-5 years in 2004-2006)*
â€“ Increase in proportion with invasive MRSA-associated co-infection
from <5% to 27% -preliminary data L Finelli, R Dhara, CDC- REL]
What he did not note was that the proportion of vaccinated children has been going up along with increased pediatric influenza deaths:
“As of June 22, 2007, CDC has received 67 reports of
influenza-associated pediatric deaths this influenza
â€“ 2005-2006: 45 deaths
â€“ 2004-2005: 46 deaths
â€“ 2003-2004: 153 deaths”.
Dr Fiore did, however, note that MRSA influenza, which presents itself as a bacterial co-infection, is now a significant cause of death in children
Also included in this interesting presentation is the anticipated schedule for revised influenza schedules:
“Potential Time-Frame for Modifying Influenza Vaccination Recommendations
â€¢ 2007-2008: Consider expanding recommendations to include school-age children
â€¢ 2010-2011: Consider expansion of recommendations to include household contacts and caregivers of school-aged children
â€¢ 2012-2013: Consider expansion to universal vaccination”
You might find it instructive to review the section of this presentation following the one cited above in which, despite clear evidence of dangers and deaths in young children receiving Flu Mist vaccine, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to approve it for young children anyway.
If you have no financial interest in vaccines, as the Natural Soluitons Foundation and I do not, you might find the evidcence compelling AWAY from approval. If, on the other hand, you do have a fninanciaql interstes in the sale of vaccines, which is permitted under the FDA/CDC rules, you might have voted as the ACIP members did.
Also, remember that live virus vaccines in general, and inhaled ones like Flu Mist in particular, cause live, infective viruses to be shed for as long as 3 months. Thus, the sibling, friend or relative of a susceptible child, for example, a wheezing baby, can infect, and potentially kill, the child.
The drums beat louder every day and the manipulation of information and statistics continues to build and impel the juggernaut of pandemic panic. You are the primary target of this flood of disinformation. We are here to help you sort through it all; to become prepared in meaningful ways.
Based on our best assessment of information and events, here is our current Intelligence Estimate of Situation, starting with some important notes of interest.
1. It is becoming increasingly clear to us at the Natural Solutions Foundation that whether or not there is a pandemic reality attached to Avian Flu, this opportunity for commercialization and social control has taken on a life of its own in the political establishment. We foresee that the necessity to allow, create or synthesize a pandemic will drive the process in the very near future into a deadly reality. Ask yourself: just how many government and foundation grants to “study” weaponizing the flu, to how many labs around the world, would be necessary before it was certain that one of those engineered bugs would be released, by “accident” or by a disgruntled employee, as with the Anthrax panic of 2001?
2. The inflammatory propaganda designed to panic and intimidate you into accepting whatever comes next once a “Pandemic” is declared consistently fails to differentiate between human cases of Avian Flu and animal cases. That way, the impression is ceaselessly reinforced that the Pandemic is already here, jut not on your block yet. The reality is that no human to human transmission has been demonstrated.
3. Exercises like the one in New Mexico (see below) are taking place in every State. Nearly every State has passed Emergency Medical Powers Acts which make refusing vaccination a felony once the Governor identifies a state of Pandemic. The property of felons, and those who hold strategic assets in a pandemic can be seized/nationalized according to various Homeland Security Directives and Executive Orders cited in our earlier discussions of this issue.
4. Industrial animal rearing practices and genetic engineering are the causes of the Pandemic Avian Flu threat, to whatever extent that threat is real. See Kennedy Shortridge, PhD’s important quote below.
Remembering the distinction between pandemic human Avian Flu and poultry disease would help to bring accuracy and proportion to the reports. Since all headlines uniformly refer to the occurrences by the same term, “Avian Flu”, a casual, hurried or frightened reader will glean the global dangers of this “inevitable pandemic” when, in fact, human cases are still exceedingly rare.
5. Discussions of “Who Lives, Who Dies” and “Necessary Restrictions of liberties” Beginning to Surface. Expect a pounding barrage of items telling you to let others decide your future and restrict your freedoms. Personal freedom and survival will be decided by “Public Health and Emergency organizations” like FEMA. The preparation for this totalitarian culling will begin with articles, meetings and propaganda and then become public policy at the UN level as well as in the US.
See Tucson, AZ Daily Star article below. Becoming aware of the propaganda is important for your survival.
6. 2 Recent Avian Flu Fatalities in Indonesia Reported, First Since July. (For Comparison, 700,000 People Die Annually In US From Cardiac Disease). While we believe that a disseminated, intentional pandemic is highly likely, early alerts devoted to the “Natural Evolution” of this danger are irrational and illogical. However, to the propagandists, making sure that the public stays primed is of importance in softening resistance to control measures and forced vaccination. Two deaths globally in the last 6 weeks is a pretty poor showing for a Pandemic disease which is consistently billed in that fashion. Is this really the next Plague? This indicates to us the careful propaganda push behind these perceptions.
7. Powerful and influential forces are at work to both convince you that the Pandemic is inevitable and to set up the situation so that self-fulfilling prophecy is fulfilled. This August 29, 2008 article is worth repeating: “Scientists funded by the Wellcome Trust are to examine what is preventing the H5N1 avian influenza virus from causing a human pandemic and what mutations are required to realise its deadly potential. The research could hold the key to early identification of a potential influenza pandemic…”
8. Drug-Resistant ‘Superbug’ in Australia Fueling Fear of Epidemic
By Jill Stark, Melbourne Age (Australia), September 8, 2008
“Australia is facing an epidemic of a drug-resistant superbug that attacks healthy teenagers and can be fatal, leading scientists have warned. A summit of 350 international microbiologists will converge on Cairns today to discuss the global health threat posed by resistant staphylococcal infections — also known as MRSA superbugs. Of particular concern is a new virulent form of the flesh-eating bug that can lead to a severe form of pneumonia that causes death in up to 50% of cases.
Unlike hospital-acquired MRSA, which affects mostly elderly patients, the community strain of the bug carries far more toxic genes and can be picked up in communal settings. Similar bugs in the U.S. have led to the deaths of several teenagers and schools being shut and disinfected. Experts at the conference say the bug is on the rise in Australia and patients are presenting to emergency departments with infected boils that can lead to abscesses and gaping wounds.
Associate Professor Keryn Christiansen, director of microbiology at Royal Perth Hospital and co-ordinator of the conference, said antibiotics seemed to have no effect. ‘We’re looking at a major epidemic. These are much more virulent strains of these bugs We’re seeing more people coming to our emergency departments, more people admitted with more severe infections and we’re seeing people die. It’s happening right across Australia,’ she said.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) notes that the drum beats for Pandemic Panic are not sufficiently arousing “Flu Fatigue’ Poses Public Health Threat, WHO Says.” http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601124&sid=at0oOdQTLVE0&refer=home.

1. New Bird Flu Strain Detected In Nigeria
A strain of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza previously not recorded in sub-Saharan Africa has been detected in Nigeria for the first time, FAO [Food and Agriculture Organization- REL] said today. Nigeria has recently reported two new Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza outbreaks in the states of Katsina and Kano.
Laboratory results from Nigeria and an FAO reference laboratory in Italy show that the newly discovered virus strain (H5N1, clade 2, EMA3) is genetically different from the strains that circulated in Nigeria during earlier outbreaks in 2006 and 2007. [Note that previous outbreaks represented zero danger to humans - REL] The new strain has never been reported before in Africa; it is more similar to strains previously identified in Europe (Italy), Asia (Afghanistan) and the Middle East (Iran) in 2007.
â€œIt seems to be unlikely that wild birds have carried the strain to Africa, since the last migration of wild birds from Europe and Central Asia to Africa occurred in September 2007 and this yearâ€™s southerly migration into Africa has not really started yet,â€ Newman said. â€œIt could well be that there are other channels for virus introduction: international trade, for example, or illegal and unreported movement of poultry. This increases the risk of avian influenza spread to other countries in Western Africa….
â€œUncertainty about virus spread and transmission is a major challenge for control campaigns. [Indeed - REL] …. Since the avian influenza epidemic caused by the H5N1 strain started five years ago in Asia, the disease has affected over 60 countries [with virtually no human deaths despite deceptive statistics and media hype - REL]; the vast majority of countries have succeeded to eliminate the virus from poultry. In Nigeria, the virus was first confirmed in February 2006 and infected poultry in 25 states before being contained.” [Note: industrial poultry operations are paid more than market price for birds slaughtered "because" of Avian Flu, real or imagined. Subsistence farmers are paid nothing at all. WHO wants to eliminate backyard flocks totally despite the fact that Avian Flu infections do not occur in outdoor flocks AND almost always occur in previously vaccinated birds. Globalizing and industrializing the food supply is greatly assisted by these economically disastrous culls for peasant farmers which are, at the same time, highly profitable for industrial food producers. - REL]

2. New Mexico Helps Business Community Prepare For Pandemic Flu
About 130 business and health leaders in New Mexico attended â€œEconomic Consequences of Pandemic Influenza along the United States â€“ Mexico Borderâ€ this week as a part of the Stateâ€™s efforts to help organizations mitigate the effects of a pandemic flu. The New Mexico Department of Health partnered with the New Mexico Economic Developmentâ€™s Office of Mexican Affairs to explain how companies can prepare for the impact a pandemic flu could have on their business.
â€œWe are looking for every opportunity to meet with different sectors of our community to make sure New Mexico is prepared for the disruption to services and businesses during a pandemic flu,â€ said Health Secretary Dr. Alfredo Vigil. â€œWe appreciate businesses taking the time to learn about how they can develop plans to ensure minimal disruption to trade and commerce in the region….
‘Business leaders have a responsibility to be part of the solution in dealing with a potential pandemic. We must have measures in place that will prevent disruptions in the supply chain and have a plan to deliver goods and services if the workforce gets sick.’â€ [Perhaps there is another way to interpret this, but we see this as a clear preparatory step for government forces to nationalize supplies and distribution of goods and services when, not if, the pandemic is declared. This possibility is already embodied in various Homeland Security Directives and Executive Orders that allow for the nationalization of assets, resources, transportation and distribution property and systems.

3. American Lung Association Urges Vaccination “Each and Every Year” In Its Influenza Prevention Program
Welcome to Faces of Influenza
[Reading this item, please ask yourself how much of the budget of the American Lung Association derives from the pharmaceutical and vaccine industry. And then ask yourself how the vaccine prevents influenza when the symptoms of the reaction to the vaccine are identical to the flu - a neat "escape hatch for the unpleasant, and unprofitable reality that vaccines frequently cause diseases they are designed to protect against. - REL]
“Welcome to Faces of Influenzaâ€”an educational Web site of the American Lung Association. This site is designed to put a face on influenza in the United States and show firsthand the seriousness of this potentially deadly infectious disease.
This site features special portraits of famous and not so famous Americans, who represent each of the influenza high-risk groupsâ€”persons health officials recommend receive an influenza vaccination, with its “trace” amount of mercury poison, each and every year.
Along with these dramatic portraits are compelling stories about their experience with influenza and the importance of annual immunization.
You will likely see yourself, family members and others among the many Faces of Influenza. You also will come to realize that influenza is not the common cold. It’s serious. Each year, approximately 226,000 Americans are hospitalized with complications from influenza. An average of 36,000 people, it is alleged, die from the virus and its complications. [As previously discussed by the Natural Solutions Foundation, these statistics are highly deceptive since ALL lung related deaths which could potentially, not actually, be associated with flu of ANY type are listed as deaths CAUSED BY influenza. - REL]
4. “Bird Flu – A Virus of Own Hatching” by Michael Greger reinforces Industrial Fowl Production Cause of the Coming Pandemic.
[Note the continuing conflation of human and poultry infection which is described as "rampaging west to Russia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe." despite the lack of a single human case in any of these areas of pandemic flu. -REL]
Kennedy Shortridge, PhD, DSc(Hon), CBiol, FIBiol has issued a critical statement in the introduction to this book:
“Indeed, molecular and genetic evidence suggests that the chicken is not a natural host for influenza. Rather, the domestic duck is the silent intestinal carrier of avian influenza viruses being raised in close proximity to habitation.”
“It is the siting of large-scale chicken production units, particularly in southern China where avian influenza viruses abound, that is the crux of the problem. There, domestic ducks have been raised on rivers, waterways, and, more recently, with the flooded rice crops cultivated each year. The importation of industrial poultry farming into that same region introduced millions of chickensâ€”highly stressed due to intensive production practices and unsanitary conditionsâ€”into this avian influenza virus milieu. The result? An influenza accident waiting to happen. The H5N1 virus signaled its appearance in Hong Kong in 1997, and has since made its way into dozens of countries, infected millions of birds, and threatens to trigger a human catastrophe.”
“Michael Greger has taken on the formidable task of reviewing and synthesizing the many factors contingent upon chicken production that have brought us to the influenza threat the world now faces. Drawing upon scientific literature and media reports at large, Dr. Greger explores the hole we have dug for ourselves with our own unsavory practices.”
“Indeed, while governments and the poultry industry are quick to blame migratory birds as the source of the current H5N1 avian influenza virus, and to view pandemics as natural phenomena analogous to, say, sunspots and earthquakes, in reality, human choices and actions may have hadâ€”and may continue to haveâ€”a pivotal role in the changing ecology. Now that anthropogenic behavior has reached unprecedented levels with a concomitant pronounced zoonotic skew in emerging infectious diseases of humans, H5N1 seems like a cautionary tale of how attempts to exploit nature may backfire. The use of antibiotics as farm meal growth promoters leading to antibiotic-resistance in humans or the feeding of meat or bone meal to cattle leading to mad cow disease are cases in point: profitable in the short term for animal agriculture, but with the potential for unforeseen and disastrous consequences. Intensified, industrial poultry production has given us inexpensive chicken, but at what cost to the animals and at what heightened risk to public health?”
“We have reached a critical point. We must dramatically change animal farming practices for all animals.”
An excerpt from Dr. Greger’s introductory comments: “H5N1 took its first human life in Hong Kong in 1997 and has since rampaged west to Russia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. It remains almost exclusively a disease of birds, [Emphasis added - REL] but as the virus has spread, it has continued to mutate. It has developed greater lethality and enhanced environmental stability, and has begun taking more species under its wing. Influenza viruses donâ€™t typically kill mammals like rodents, but experiments have shown that the latest H5N1 mutants can kill 100% of infected mice, practically dissolving their lungs. The scientific world has never seen anything like it. [This supports the bio-engineered origin of this virus - REL] Weâ€™re facing an unprecedented outbreak of an unpredictable virus….”
“Currently in humans, H5N1 is good at killing, but not at spreading. There are three essential conditions necessary to produce a pandemic. First, a new virus must arise from an animal reservoir, such that humans have no natural immunity to it. Second, the virus must evolve to be capable of killing human beings efficiently. Third, the virus must succeed in jumping efficiently from one human to the next. For the virus, itâ€™s one small step to man, but one giant leap to mankind. So far, conditions one and two have been met in spades. Three strikes and weâ€™re out. If the virus triggers a human pandemic, it will not be peasant farmers in Vietnam dying after handling dead birds or raw poultryâ€”it will be New Yorkers, Parisians, Londoners, and people in every city, township, and village in the world dying after shaking someoneâ€™s hand, touching a doorknob, or simply inhaling in the wrong place at the wrong time….”
[While Dr. Greger does an admirable job of pulling information together, he does not critically analyze the statistical slight of hand which creates the panic perception of a disease which apparently has a very low mortality, despite what appear to be the best efforts of sophisticated scientists. -REL]
5. Lead In To Surrender of Choice for Personal Safety and Liberty Re: Pandemic Flu Beginning.
Arizona Daily Star, Tucson, AZ, September 14, 2008
“In global flu outbreak, who gets saved? “In the event of a global flu outbreak, some government leaders could have higher priority to receive vaccines than infants and toddlers…..The department, which has been preparing for the possibility of a massive pandemic flu outbreak for more than four years now, is adding a new component to its plan â€” input from the public… [What a novel departure! -REL]
If people understand what’s going on, there’s a bigger chance of buy-in, if and when if happens,” said Dr. Michelle McDonald, the department’s chief medical officer.
“There will be three major ethical issues â€” short supplies of critical things, restrictions of freedom (as) places will be closed [including your home as you are "detained" for quarantine or other purposes? - REL], and there will be personal and community interests to balance.” [Early justification for marshal law - REL]…. ‘Many people will be asked to make choices,’ McDonald said.
The worst pandemic flu in the last century was the 1918 “Spanish flu,” which infected between 30 and 40 percent of the population and resulted in more than a half-million deaths in the United States and between 20 million and 100 million deaths worldwide. [Which makes its intentional recreation highly puzzling -REL]
“Is there going to be another pandemic? Yeah, there is absolutely, no question,” said Dr. Bob England, director of the Maricopa County Health Department…. If it gets going, it’s going to go very fast. â€¦ But panic does not have to happen if you communicate well, tell the truth and give people something rational to do.”
6. Avian Flu Found in Togo, West Africa [Note that this item refers to the virus in birds, not in people, but it is written to sound like Avian Flu is among us humans now. Note the misuse of the word "deadly' in the following headline. - REL]
Togo: Recent bird flu outbreak is deadly H5N1
LOME, Togo (AP) â€” Tests performed after the first ever outbreak of bird flu in the West African nation of Togo have confirmed the presence of the virulent H5N1 strain of the virus, state media said Monday.
The virus was detected at a poultry farm housing more than 4,500 birds in the village of Agbata outside the capital, Lome, according to the government.
The presence of the deadly strain raises special concern because it has the potential to infect humans. At least 235 people have died of bird flu worldwide since 2003, according to the World Health Organization.
However, the disease remains hard for humans to catch, with most cases linked to contact with infected birds. But scientists worry the virus could mutate to a form that spreads more easily among people.
Togo state television reported the lab tests were carried out by experts in Ghana and Italy after the outbreak was discovered last week.
The Health Ministry says “precautionary measures have been taken to contain the situation.” [Whatever that means -probably slaughtering backyard flocks and paying nothing, as in Nigeria, but paying above market value for industrial flocks which are killed. - REL]
Commercializing the Pandemic Opportunity [This is but a small sampling of the rush for profit by pharmaceutical companies and others to profit from the predicted, but not yet real, Pandeic Flu (or Pandemic anything else) hysteria.
The gold rush is on!
1. IntefleCSâ„¢ Bio Surveillance
A Pandemic Surveillance program called "IntefleCSâ„¢ Bio Surveillance has been designed for the early detection and effective management of an epidemic or pandemic outbreak of infectious disease. The solution steers consumers and clinicians successfully through the complex healthcare delivery process to ensure that patients are referred to the most appropriate level of care. [Whatever that might mean -REL]” Their website banner repeats the now-familiar harrangue, “No one knows what or when the next pandemic outbreak will be but healthcare services need to be fully prepared.” [The logical absurdity of this does not seem to bother either this company or those who repeat this illogical statement over and over. - REL]
2. Novavax Today Reported that it’s VLP Pandemic Influenza Vaccine, Joined With Innovative Vaccine Preparation, Pas the Potential to Address Aaps in Global Flu Pandemic Preparedness.
Novavax, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVAX) announced today favorable results from the second stage of the Phase I/IIa human clinical trial of its pandemic influenza virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine candidate. The vaccine, [produced in insect cell culture - REL] which does not contain an adjuvant, induced robust neutralizing antibody responses. Novavax’s VLP candidate is directed against the H5N1 A/Indonesia/05/2005 avian influenza strain. Avian influenza emerged in humans in Indonesia in 2005 and has caused 135 documented human cases, 81% of which have been fatal. [As previously discussed, the number of cases mentioned is the number of SYMPTOMATIC cases. Asymptomatic cases, those without any symptoms or mild ones, are totally ignored although there may be thousands of such cases for every one reported, altering the statistics profoundly. This precision would undermine the frantic, and profitable, "media reality" being created. -REL]….
[The point of this commercialization is presented at the end of this article - REL] “These data are also supportive for moving forward with development of another Novavax vaccine candidate: against seasonal influenza. Seasonal influenza causes over 500,000 deaths worldwide and over 36,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, most of which occur in adults 65 years of age and older, a population in which currently licensed vaccines have only modest efficacy.
Novavax has developed a vaccine candidate against seasonal (human) influenza strains. While current seasonal vaccines consist almost entirely of HA, the Novavax VLP contains HA, NA, and M1 with the potential of inducing neutralizing antibody to prevent infection and reduce the severity of influenza illnesses.”
3. New Drugs in the Offing – H5N1 Already Resistant to Current Ones
New drugs to fight bird flu, other influenza epidemics
Researchers at Rutgers University and The University of Texas at Austin have reported a discovery that could help scientists develop drugs to fight the much-feared bird flu and other virulent strains of influenza.
The researchers have determined the three-dimensional structure of a site on an influenza A virus protein that binds to one of its human protein targets, thereby suppressing a person’s natural defenses to the infection and paving the way for the virus to replicate efficiently. This so-called NS1 virus protein is shared by all influenza A viruses isolated from humans â€“ including avian influenza, or bird flu, and the 1918 pandemic influenza virus….
“Our work uncovers an Achilles heel of influenza A viruses that cause human epidemics and high mortality pandemics,” said Montelione, professor of molecular biology and biochemistry. “We have identified the structure of a key target site for drugs that could be developed to effectively combat this disease.”
4. Self Immunize to Find Out if Avian Flu Vaccine Works [Or Might Kill You -REL], Suggests Anonymous Blogger,
“The newly introduced way to prevent avian infection is the bird flu vaccine. [This is factually incorrect - REL] Through years of experimentation, health experts have finally put a solution to our problems [This is factually incorrect. One of the largest studies of an Avian Flu vaccine ever reported is now in progress. St. Louis University has enrolled just 167 people in the trial. -REL]. Although it has been released with great certainty, how are we going to know if the vaccine works? How will we know if the new influenza virus vaccine promises immunity from avian flu contamination? Well, there can only be one way to find out and that is through self-immunization.” [This is bizarre reasoning -REL]
Is The Influenza Virus Vaccine Effective Against Bird Flu
“Among the many tests [What tests? -REL] conducted by several health agencies from all over the globe, the efficacy of the flu vaccine is said to be very successful. About eighty percent of the group tested showed positive results [Antibody production is NOT disease protection - REL]. Although it still needs to be tried and tested by many people, the influenza virus vaccine can probably be our great defense against the killer disease. [It is not a killer disease. It is billed as a killer disease. No one who is talking knows the real statistics: people infected vs. kill rate. All we have is the oft-repeated statistic of people seriously ill vs. kill rate. The difference is massively important. REL] Through this newly crafted ounce of fluid, we can remove our fears of getting infected with the deadly virus. [There is no way to create a vaccine against a virus that does not yet exist. IF the Pandemic Flu virus does not exist, there is no assurance whatsoever that these vaccines provide any measure of protection. Vaccines often cause the diseases they are supposed to protect against. What would the implications of such a chain of events be with the Pandemic Avian Flu? REL] Perhaps in a yearâ€™s time, we can know even more about the effectiveness of the vaccine.” [And perhaps not, perhaps with tragic consequences - REL]
5. Vaxin Gets Funding for Bird Flu Vaccine Experiments
Birmingham News, Birmingham Alabama 09/12/2008
Alabama-based biotech firm Vaxin has received a $995,000 grant from the NIH to conduct experiments on its genetically engineered bird-flu vaccine designed to inoculate in-ovo poultry populations. [This means that eggs used for human consumption would be vaccinated before they are consumed and that chickens hatched from these eggs would already be vaccinated. The health hazards of these process are not characterized or understood. A large percentage of the poultry consumed is already being inoculated with untested vaccines against various diseases including the supposedly dangerous Avian Flu. Please note that only vaccinated flocks develop Avian Flu. -REL] The company’s CEO says it could be possible to vaccinate “70,000 to 80,000 eggs an hour,” because the process can be automated. He also noted that the company is separately developing a human vaccine, and they’re preparing for human trials. Birmingham News (Ala.),

6. MRSA Vaccines under development for several years.
Nabi Biopharmaceuticals and NIAID to Advance PentaStaph Vaccine Research
Collaboration to Focus On Protecting Against Life-Threatening Staphylococcus aureus Infections
ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 9, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nabi Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq:NABI) announced today that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), one of the National Institutes of Health, has entered into a collaboration with Nabi to advance the Company’s promising PentaStaph(tm) vaccine candidate for the prevention and treatment of S. aureus infections in the community and hospital settings. The focus of the collaboration is to conduct pre-clinical toxicology evaluations of two new S. aureus antigens as components of the first-in-class, multivalent vaccine, targeting S. aureus infections. NIAID will fund the pre-clinical toxicology evaluations of the vaccine components manufactured and provided by Nabi. The two novel antigens are designed to protect against two of the most virulent and debilitating toxins produced by the bacteria: Panton-Valentine Leukocidin, found predominantly in community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), and alpha toxin, produced by almost all S. aureus isolates. Pre-clinical toxicology testing of these components will help enable the initiation of Phase 1 clinical trials for these new antigens in early 2009 which is one of the Company’s three development milestones for 2008.
