U.S. hit with aggressive early flu season

 
January 6, 2013HEALTH The U.S. has been hit with a particularly aggressive early flu season this year with widespread reports of the illness across the country, hospitalizing 2,257 people and leaving 18 children dead before the end of 2012. And health officials say the numbers haven’t even peaked yet. ‘I think we’re still accelerating,’ Tom Skinner, a Center for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman, told reporters. The latest figures from the CDC show 29 states and New York City reporting high levels of flu activity, up from 16 states and New York City just one week prior. Overall, 41 states reported cases. ‘It’s about five weeks ahead of the average flu season,’ said Lyn Finelli, lead of the surveillance and response team that monitors influenza for the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. ‘We haven’t seen such an early season since 2003 to 2004.’ During that flu season, Joe Lastinger’s daughter Emily, 3, died only five days after coming down with the flu in late January. ‘That was the first really bad season for children in a while,’ said Lastinger, 40. ‘For whatever reason that’s not well understood, it affected her and it killed her.’ In that season, illnesses peaked in early to mid-December, with flu-related pneumonia and deaths peaking in early January. That season was considered a ‘moderately severe’ season for flu, and ended in mid-February. It’s still too early to tell how bad this year’s flu season will get. –Daily Mail
Illinois sees rise in cases: NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) – Emergency rooms are seeing a spike in patients as Illinois experiences one of the biggest flu outbreaks in the nation. The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports the typical flu season peaks in mid- to late-January and carries into late March. But health officials say major cases began appearing as early as Thanksgiving. Mary Anderson is the infection control manager at Edward Hospital. She says the hospital normally sees an average of 200 cases per season. But as of last week the hospital already has seen more than 260 confirmed cases. Officials say getting a flu shot could be the easiest way to avoid the emergency room. They also recommend hashing hands regularly for at least 15 seconds and keeping a distance from others. –WLSAM

    So weaken the immune system with vaccines, how about cutting the length of time in half with elderberry. How about some raw milk and bone broth to boost the immunity? Some Lugols solution to kill any secondary bacterial infections? How about taking time off of work to stay away from being infected (and increase your quality time with family). You can verify everything here on PubMed..also check out Natural News for more information on vaccinations.. Working in Western Medicine has opened my eyes. No I don’t buy into the vaccine thing at all. Just my observations. Peace.

      Alvin,

      Welcome to the Matrix where nothing is real. If you watch this video multiple times with a critical eye, the flaws pop up. “Babies as young as two weeks can be injected with Tamiflu in spite of the natural immunities that all babies are born with.”

      Is pointing out that newborns can be effectively protected by simply keeping them away from public places too simplistic?

      “Tamiflu can be injected within 48 hours of symptoms. Vomiting is a side effect not a typical symptom of flu.”

      “One needs to be aware that for infants the dosage is…”

      And this information to the general public is relevant how? Imagine telling your doctor that he needs to be sure to inject your newborn with the correct dosage. Am I the only one who sees the absurdity in this? It’s like watching the Truman Show.

      Anyone who believes that our government and the drug companies (who were major contributors to the current president’s campaign), care about our health and well-being do not understand the reality which is always about money. During the Prohibition years our government was responsible for more than 10,000 deaths due to the brilliant policy of poisoning the common ingredients used to make boot-leg liquor in an effort to inhibit illegal alcohol production, which could not be taxed, btw.

      Literally tens of thousands of deaths annually are directly, admittedly attributable either to the side effects of drugs, the mis-prescribing by physicians and/or the misreading of prescriptions by pharmacies. Tens of thousands die. Where is the outrage? Is this the new definition of collateral damage?

      And while I’m on this rant…where is the logic and reason in multimillion dollar advertising of drugs to the masses when the masses cannot acquire them other than by a doctor’s script? Remind me again, why do doctors go to med school?

    I agree with Gary. I have turned down the flu shot for seven years and increased my Vitamin D and C. intake. In my profession, I am exposed to all types of viruses,STD’s and other harmful bacteria. For me, hand washing with soap and water is important as well as the cleansing of office furniture with over the counter stuff we all can buy.
    Now, the flu season can be viewed as a kind of biological warfare, the germs, bugs, whatever. A person can die from it and do. Beach and water does wanders as well as alcohol and pine sol, if you can stand the smell, if a person can practice some preventive measures, it could cut down chances of flu in the family, to include the children’s toys.
    We can do a lot to help ourselves……….

      White distilled Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda is what I do use. Did you know that you can clean a surface, then lightly spray with White Distilled Vinegar and then spray with Hydrogen Peroxide and this surface will be 100% bacteria and harmful bug free? Also, washing your hands frequently with a good non chemical soap or chemical “Hand Sanitizer” is a good practice. The chemicals in many over the counter cleaning products are REALLY HARMFUL to yourself, your home and your loved ones.

      Dennis I agree. There was a time at the beginning of my motherhood .. I was knocked out cold by anything and everything. I got wise after moving to a new place I became agreesive in the things you have listed. If someone was sick I hit it with a mist of Diluted Bleach/Water solution until I could get around to cleaning it. Lysol … clean door knobs etc. I have also found that flushing mucus or klenex down the toilet instead of tossing them in the trash or letting them lay around. I suppose a Zip Loc could suffice if your stuck in bed. It worked. I recently found Tea Tree oil and I have to say it works .. I have actually mixed it with Lemon Eucalyptus Oil in an Oil Base and applied it after showering. I have literraly applied the Tea Tree oil directly to my chest and neck with the Lemon Eucalyptus oil under extreme cases and found some improvements. It stinks but helps It is a combination of efforts that truly help..

    Very interesting that they pushed getting a flu shot for the first time I can remember for the entire year. They were available at Walmart and other stores and just about every pharmacy in the US. Now we are seeing a very early season flu. Could this system of vaccination have something to do with it? I don’t know for sure, but I have heard that the flu shots given this year give no immunity for this years flu. Yet, they are still recommending people get this shot! Are you kidding me?!

      No vaccine for the flu is for that year’s flu. They are always for the flu from the year before. That is why I and my family never get the shot. So far we have survived very well. My big fear is that the gov. will make it mandatory. I pray I am wrong.

        Actually, this year’s vaccine matches the flu virus quite well. I have gotten a shot every single year for about 10 years now. Haven’t had the flu since, idk… I was a child, probably. My children, husband, all of us get the flu shot. NO flu. NO other weird illnesses. I try to eat healthy, get my sunshine (vitamin D), and like Bobi ~ I use natural cleaners NOT chemicals. I cook everything i can from scratch and limit packages, boxes and cans. I still believe in modern medicine, but i do my research first. I have often been prescribed meds I refuse to take. And i do refuse some vaccinations (gardasil for my daughters, for instance).

    Being made to go to the doctor after enduring this for about five days … I received a flue nostril swap and a throat swab … was told it was not the flue and the swollen throat was not infected … but my chest was severely inflamed and filled with inflammation …

    I do agree with Kim and Gary. I do not believe in the “flu vaccines” as I became very ill when I would get them many years ago. As far as that goes, I do not believe in Pharmaceuticals, prescription or over the counter. Chemicals – the human body was NOT designed to ingest man made chemicals and we are what we ingest. Over the past year, I have been monitoring the Chem Trails and have found a direct link to a myriad of problems with myself as well as friends, during the massive spraying times…. When they are not spraying for a week or so, everyone is feeling better, then they start in again and we all come down with common symptoms. I believe health care begins in your kitchen and I do as much Organic as I can. The Acidic/Alkaline balance is extremely important as too much acidic food creates sickness. For many years the only ph levels I would worry about were in my fish tanks. Well guess what folks, we have to keep our own ph in check. Well, here I am, rambling on and I guess that is what happens when you are 72 years old and relatively healthy…tend to “ramble on”…. Peace, Love and Blessed Be to all of you……

    The flu has been pretty rampant here in Ohio too. I don’t normally get sick, but I came down with something right before new years. It was probably more from not eating right and not getting enough rest. It only lasted one day and I took care of it the old fashioned way – drank fluids and slept. I also don’t do vaccines. I did a long time ago, when flu vaccines first came out, but found out I got sicker after getting one. Then I started reading all the warnings. Every time a doctor asks me if I want a flu vaccine he gets an adamant “NO”. I won’t let my mother get one either.

    NO WAY do I ever take flu shots even tho’ all the docs have said I should because of heart failure (secondary to an inherited genetic cardiac abnormality) and Multiple Sclerosis! My first MS attack occurred two weeks after a compulsory shot for Mercury-loaded Hep B vaccine (nursing) in 1989.. I now take 10,000 iu Vit D daily..it is FAR more effective than a flu shot and controls.. or rather it has effectively CURED… my Multiple Sclerosis in to the bargain. I also take Methylcobalamin 1000 mcg.. it crosses the blood-brain barrier and repairs damaged nerves but also detoxifies any Mercury I may ingest (and there’s LOTS of Mercury in heavily-mined West Virginia!). ALL my MS lesions have, quite simply, gone.. and my healthy diet and Vitamin D3 keeps me flu-free when everyone else is dropping like flies!

    I don’t take Flu Shots, note the guy says “probably not true” in the dangers of it. 3 years ago they wanted to give me a flu shot when I was having a bad reaction to the chemo and radiation and was hospitalized, my Nutrifils (spelling ?) were gone. I had no resistance and was expected to not make it. I refused the shot, allowed my grandkids to get a hung, and ate decent food. I watched others there get carried out with toe tags. We go nowhere before God says, nowhere. Thoise that died that week had taken the flu shots, so it did them no good.

    Getting a flu shot has never meant you will not get the flu. The shot this year is supposed to be about 70% effective and if you do get the flu it might not be as severe. I used to never get a flu shot but since getting diagnosed with a lung disease I get one every year now. I dont think I’ve ever had the flu. But that was also the case before I started getting them. I am allergic to thimerosal, but as long as i’m not sick when I get the shot I won’t have any issues.

    Several years ago a military doctor set out to find the 1918 flu virus. He went to Alaska and dug up victems from a village that was wiped out from the virus. He succeeded. I fear that someone might have (will) recreated it and let it loose. My husband says I am getting paraniod. I hope he is right. If a flu as deadly as the 1918 strain were to appear today, it would be just as deadly. The thing that made it so deadly was it attacked the age group 15-35. This group is usually spared or at least affected the least.

      Think of medicine in 1918. That’s partly to blame for the staggering number of victims. There was no Tamiflu, we didn’t have over the counter relief like we do now, medicine in itself was still in it’s infancy in the early 20th century. Heck, did we even understand how the flu was transmitted in 1918?

    Andrew Wakfields partner, John Walker-Smith has been exonerated for misconduct in relation to his research which placed doubt on the MMR (measles, mumps, rebeller) vaccine. They basically proved a link between gastro illness, the MMR Vaccine and AUTISM! Apparently if a child has a weakened immune system at the time of vaccination they have a high risk of developmental issues. Wakefield and Walker-Smith were made a scapegoat for the industry so  a scientific research enquiry into the safety of vaccines would not take place. They are brilliant minds thinking outside the square of  society who were humiliated for an amazing achievement. Why discredit them…. Pharmasutical profit margins…. Possibly something more sinister? Leave that one with you… Here’s a link to the article and peer reviewed journal links.
