The CDC Has Been Purposely Mixing H1N1 Swine Flu And H5N1 Bird Flu To See What Will Happen

CDC Has Been Purposely Mixing H1N1 Swine Flu And H5N1 Bird FluIn a move that can only be described as incredibly reckless, scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control have been conducting experiments in which they infect ferrets with both the H1N1 swine virus and the H5N1 bird flu virus to see if they will "reassort" and create a new hybrid flu virus.  The rationale for these reckless experiments is that scientists want to know if a combination of H1N1 and H5N1 could become a "super flu" that would be both easily transmissible from human to human and highly fatal at the same time.  Considering the fact that the World Health Organization says that over half of the people who have contracted H5N1 have died, the prospect of such a "super flu" developing is more than a little frightening.  Of course scientists tell us that experiments such as this one are "perfectly safe", but the truth is that we all know that sometimes these experimental viruses do get out.  If a lab-created H5N1/H1N1 hybrid does get out, what would that mean for humanity? 

Well, the potential for a combination of H5N1 and H1N1 to start spreading is real enough that the World Health Organization issued an official press release about it a couple weeks ago.  The press release contained an ominous warning about the possibility that the H5N1 bird flu virus could combine with the H1N1 swine flu virus, thus "producing a flu virus that is as deadly as the former and as contagious as the latter."

So if a flu virus as contagious as H1N1 and as fatal as H5N1 started circulating, what would that mean?

Well, hundreds of millions around the world have reportedly contracted the H1N1 swine flu already.

About half of those who contract the H5N1 bird flu virus die.

Combine those statistics together and you get the recipe for a nightmare pandemic.

In fact, one of the top infectious disease experts in the entire world says that if such a hybrid virus begins to circulate, he will immediately retire and lock himself in a containment lab.

Yi Guan is one of the top virologists at Hong Kong University.  In 2003 he helped isolate the SARS virus.  In a shocking interview with Science Insider, he described what it could mean for the world if H1N1 and H5N1 were to recombine.... 

Q: It depends on further mutations?

Y.G.: It depends on mutations and whether the virus further reassorts with other viruses—like H5N1. That could be a super nightmare for the whole world.

Q: You’re talking about the Armageddon virus?

Y.G.: The chance is very, very low that these two viruses will mix together, but we cannot rule out the possibility. Now, H5N1 is in more than 60 countries. It’s a panzootic, present everywhere except North America.

Q: If the nightmare comes true?

Y.G.: If that happens, I will retire immediately and lock myself in the P3 lab. H5N1 kills half the people it infects. Even if you inject yourself with a vaccine, it may be too late. Maybe in just a couple hours it takes your life.

But now instead of waiting for a recombination to occur naturally, scientists at the CDC are conducting experiments to see if they can make it happen. 

So what if they do make it happen?

Can they guarantee that it will never, ever get out?

We all know how well those guarantees have worked in the past.

Even if by some miracle they are able to successfully contain it, what would keep someone from using it as a military weapon in the future?

What would keep someone from releasing it in an area targeted for population reduction?

The truth is that once a supervirus like this is created, it becomes a perpetual danger to humanity.  We would have to rely on the competency and morality of our scientists and politicians to keep this from getting out.

The truth is that scientists at the CDC should not be conducting experiments with H5N1 and H1N1 to see what might happen. 

But they are.

Let us just hope that they do not create a monster.

H5N1 And H1N1 In The Same Family In Vietnam?

H5N1 bird flu plus H1N1 swine flu in VietnamThere is a disturbing new report out of Vietnam that appears to indicate that one family there has tested positive for both the H5N1 bird flu and the H1N1 swine flu.  According to the report, poultry belonging to the family has also tested positive for the H5N1 bird flu.  H5N1 has been circulating in Vietnam for several years, and now H1N1 has gotten a strong foothold there.  Some infectious disease experts are now concerned that Vietnam could become the type of "fertile breeding ground" where we could actually see a reassortment or recombination where the H5N1 bird flu virus and the H1N1 swine flu virus combine to form a completely new strain.   In fact, one of the top virologists in the world said that if such a reassortment happens, he will "retire immediately and lock myself in the P3 lab."  Why would he be so concerned?  It is because such a recombination could potentially create a "super strain" of the flu that would be as fatal as H5N1 but as easily transmissible as H1N1.  If such a strain developed we could really be looking at a doomsday scenario.

That is why it is so important to keep a close eye on this situation in Vietnam.  This could potentially become very dangerous very quickly.

A translation from the disturbing new report from Vietnam is posted below....

More and anxiety on the basis of when Dr. Nguyen Tran Hien, Director of Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology PRIVATE announce the result of epidemiological investigations deaths due to bird flu recently in Dien Bien. Male patients age 23 in the city of Dien Bien death from respiratory failure due to severe viral pneumonia was confirmed by test results: The patient died from H5N1.

When investigating the epidemiology of close contact with patients, medical experts are concerned when they discovered the children of influenza A/H1N1 infected patients. Meanwhile, the Forum chickens living in the cousin has test results positive for H5N1 virus.

----

If any of you hear of any other reports about H5N1 and H1N1 being found together please let us know.  The potential for a recombination between the two is so real that the WHO even put out a press release about it recently.  This will definitely be something to watch for in the coming days.

NIH Report Notes Similarity Of New York City H1N1 Swine Flu Deaths With 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic

H1N1 Swine Flu PandemicNIH Report Notes Similarity Of New York City H1N1 Swine Flu Deaths With 1918 Spanish Flu PandemicA shocking new report from the National Institutes For Health has noted the similarity between H1N1 swine flu deaths in New York City and deaths caused by the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. The scientists involved in this research examined autopsy reports, hospital records and other clinical data from 34 patients who died from the H1N1 swine flu between May 15th and July 9th, 2009.  All but two of the H1N1 deaths discussed in the report occurred within New York City. What the report found was that the H1N1 swine flu virus had attacked the protective cells that lined the respiratory system of these patients. That caused these patients to be much more susceptible to bacterial infections. According to the report, this is consistent with what happened to victims of the flu during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.  This new research is all the more disturbing considering the fact that many reports of similar H1N1 swine flu symptoms are now pouring in from all over the globe.

While some observers have been speculating on a link between the H1N1 swine flu and the 1918 Spanish flu for some time now, the truth is that this report is the first scientific research to openly come out and publicly declare a link between the two. The NIH report puts it this way....

In fatal cases of 2009 H1N1 influenza, the virus can damage cells throughout the respiratory airway, much like the viruses that caused the 1918 and 1957 influenza pandemics

We had previously reported on new research which shows that most victims of the 1918 Spanish flu actually died from bacterial pneumonia.  Now, this new report clearly states that these H1N1 swine flu victims in New York City experienced a similar attack on their respiratory systems which led to bacterial infections in many cases....

A microscopic examination of tissues throughout the airways revealed that the virus caused damage primarily to the upper airway—the trachea and bronchial tubes—but tissue damage in the lower airway, including deep in the lungs, was present as well. Evidence of secondary bacterial infection was seen in more than half of the victims.

Not only that, but the damage to the lungs of these New York City H1N1 victims sounds very comparable to the damage to the lungs of victims of the 1918 Spanish flu and to the damage to the lungs of patients in Ukraine....

The researchers examined tissue samples from the 34 deceased individuals to assess how 2009 H1N1 influenza virus damaged various parts of the respiratory system. “We saw a spectrum of damage to tissue in both the upper and lower respiratory tracts,” says Dr. Taubenberger. In all cases, the uppermost regions of the respiratory tract—the trachea and bronchial tubes—were inflamed, with severe damage in some cases. In 18 cases, evidence of damage lower down in the finer branches of the bronchial tubes, or bronchioles, was noted. In 25 cases, the researchers found damage to the small globular air sacs, or alveoli, of the lungs.

At the end of the report, one of the key doctors involved in the research makes it clear that the respiratory system damage found in the New York City H1N1 patients was consistent with patterns seen during the 1918 and 1957 flu pandemics that killed millions....

“This pattern of pathology in the airway tissues is similar to that reported in autopsy findings of victims of both the 1918 and 1957 influenza pandemics,” notes Dr. Taubenberger.

This report in incredibly sobering - especially considering what has been going on in Ukraine.

In Ukraine, hundreds of people have been dying of severe respiratory disease.  What has apparently been happening is that the H1N1 swine flu has been viciously attacking the protective cells lining the respiratory system, thus allowing bacterial infections to ravage the lungs.  Temperatures inside the lungs of some patients in Ukraine have reached as high as 135 degrees Fahrenheit, and as some of these victims near death their lungs begin to literally disintegrate and turn black as charcoal.

Ukrainian Professor Viktor Bachinsky recently described what symptoms he is seeing in patients with this virus....

"The virus, which causes death, is very aggressive, it does not strike the trachea, but immediately gets into the lungs and causes heavy swelling and solid hemorrhage. Mixed types of parainfluenza and influenza A/N1N1 lead to this state. This is a very toxic strain, which has not yet answered to the treatment of the Ministry of Health."

In Ukraine this H1N1 swine flu virus is causing the total destruction of the lungs of its victims.  Recombinomics recently posted a translation of an official announcement by the Ukraine Ministry of Health that graphically describes what is happening to these patients....

The symptoms are observed at different stages of disease - a fever with a temperature over 38 C, cough, respiratory disorders. When cough was characterized by negligible allocation phlegm or dry unproductive cough with blotches of blood. All the patients come to hospital on average by 3-7 days of onset, were in serious condition. Period of time from onset to death averaged from 4 to 7 days. In all patients during a hospital for signs of respiratory insufficiency of various degrees, which quickly rose and manifested accelerated respiration rate, shortness of breath and effectiveness of independent breathing. X-ray studies were performed on 1-2 day hospitalization. Most patients experienced a double-headed particles of lower lung lesion, followed by a trend towards total destruction.

It has been a truly frightening situation over there.

One doctor in Western Ukraine was quoted as saying the following about what the lungs of  people who have died there look like....

"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal.  They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying."

Now similar reports are coming in from Russia, China, Brazil, France and Norway.  There have even been reports of similar H1N1 symptoms in Iowa and Utah.

So what is causing the H1N1 virus to do this to some people?

Well, many health authorities are claiming that the "D225G" change in the receptor binding domain for the H1N1 influenza is associated with both bleeding in the lungs and a low reaction to the H1N1 swine flu vaccine.

For more about this H1N1 mutation, please check out our previous article on the matter.  The reality is that this D225G mutation does seem to be linked with more aggressive behavior by the virus.  It does seem to produce symptoms that are similar to what victims of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic experienced.

So will this outbreak of H1N1 become as bad as the 1918 Spanish flu?

Let us hope not.

The 1918 Spanish flu is estimated to have killed between 50 and 100 million people worldwide.  If that happened today, the consequences would be unimaginable.

30 Dead As Mystery Flu Plague Ravages Saratov, Russia

Flu Plague In Saratov, RussiaH1N1 Swine Flu Mutation From Ukraine Spreading In RussiaDer Spiegel is reporting that 30 deaths being blamed on the H1N1 swine flu have created panic among the citizens of Saratov, Russia.  According to the report, many believe that the symptoms that victims are experiencing in Saratov are similar to what H1N1 flu victims in Ukraine have been experiencing for weeks.  However, it is important to note that additional confirmation will be needed before any conclusions can be reached about what is happening in Saratov.  But the fact that Der Spiegel is openly reporting on the situation in Saratov is an indication that this is about to break into the international media.  There are clues in the Der Spiegel article that this outbreak in Russia is causing the same kind of respiratory problems that we have seen in Ukraine.  That is consistent with the conclusions that we reached about this new H1N1 mutation in our last article - "Research Reveals Most Victims Of 1918 Spanish Flu Died From Bacterial Pneumonia – Just Like Victims Dying From The New H1N1 Swine Flu Mutation In Ukraine".  You see, apparently what this new H1N1 mutation does is that it destroys the protective cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs, thus allowing the bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat to invade the lungs.  That is why so many are confusing this new H1N1 mutation with the pneumonic plague. 

A translation of a large section of this new report from Der Spiegel is posted below.....

Plague Panic In Russia Province

By Benjamin Bidder, Moscow

Schools are closed, the bishop has masses read - 30 deaths because of the swine flu have triggered panic in a Russian Volga city. Conspiracy theories make the rounds, the authorities are concealing the truth about how bad things are: the plague is here.

The telephone of the editor-in-chief of the “New Newspaper” rings again in the Volga city Saratow. Again Alexander Burmistrow has an excited caller on the other end. “We constantly get calls of anxious citizens”, says the journalist. There are many reports of strange vehicles, which drive along roads of the city. They are heavy tankers, report an informant. They sprayed a liquid - perhaps against the swine flu? Or perhaps against something worse?

Fear has seized the 800,000 inhabitants of the city Saratow. Fear of the epidemic: above all, however, fear of the fact that the authorities are hiding the truth from them. They are afraid that a worse illness than the swine flu is causing the deaths: the plague.

Schools remain closed, people avoid groups, business, concerts. In the evening at 8 o'clock the streets have been swept empty. The governor Itapow visited for the TV a pharmacy, before the television cameras he got his flu medication. He has already been vaccinated, announces the provincial prince. If however the normal citizens go into the pharmacy, there are no medicines for them. The vaccine remains scarce. Then public health authorities in the middle of the week announced 466 confirmed cases of swine flu. And 30 deaths, mostly young people, without any illnesses. Many women are among them.

The mobile phone network breaks down

Rumors spread like fires. The city is to be put under quarantine. The Air Force is to carry out missions to disinfect the city from air. And Iwan P., 22, medical student, types doomladen lines into its blog: “The results of the autopsy, which died from the swine flu in Sarantwo, resemble the descriptions in the medical literature of the results of the autopsy of patient that died of the lung plague.” Has the black death gone over into Saratow?

Concern turns to panic. The mobile phone network breaks down because thousands of people want to speak to dcotors and authorities at the same time. The public health authorities register huge quantities of calls. The hospitals are overcrowded, in the health centers queues form. Advice makes the round; use only boiled water and only for brushing your teeth. And hundreds of citizens write president Dmitrij Medwedew: “The enormous number of deaths among young people with the diagnosis “pneumonia" worries us” says the letter.

The statements of the authorities sounds furious. “Criminal” says the boss of federal public health authorities in Moscow, Gennadi Onischenko, about the procedures in the Volga city. It is obviously a conspiracy. “What the goals are I do not know, and I want it also to know”, storms Russia highest physician. It is “a deliberate provocation”, Onischenko tells the newspaper “Iswestia”.

-----

If any of you see any more reports about what is going on in Saratov, please alert us.  The reality is that reports like these are very disturbing.  If this new H1N1 mutation is becoming more like the 1918 Spanish flu, then that would be a very ominous development.

The 1918 Spanish flu pandemic killed tens of millions of people around the globe.  Today the total population of the world is much larger.  If this current version of H1N1 does become a major worldwide pandemic, the death toll could be staggering.  Let us all hope that the worst case scenario does not come to pass.

Research Reveals Most Victims Of 1918 Spanish Flu Died From Bacterial Pneumonia – Just Like Victims Dying From The New H1N1 Swine Flu Mutation In Ukraine

Most Victims Of 1918 Spanish Flu Died From Bacterial Pneumonia1918 Spanish Flu H1N1 Mutation In UkraineA common misperception is that most people who died during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic actually died from the flu itself.  But according to high level scientific research done over the past few years, most of the people who died from the 1918 Spanish flu actually died from bacterial pneumonia that was caused when bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat invaded the lungs along a pathway created when the 1918 Spanish flu virus destroyed the cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs.  This explains what is going on in Ukraine.  Over the past several weeks, there have been rumors that the pneumonic plague was on the loose in Ukraine.  But that is not the case.  What apparently is happening is that the H1N1 swine flu has mutated and is acting more like the 1918 Spanish flu (which was also an H1N1 flu).  This new H1N1 mutation is directly attacking the respiratory system of its victims.  This attack on the respiratory system is destroying the protective cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs, thus allowing the bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat to invade the lungs.  As victims near death, temperatures inside the lungs have gotten as high as 135 degrees Fahrenheit, and doctors on the ground in Ukraine have said that the lungs of these victims become "as black as charcoal".

If this new H1N1 mutation is acting just like the 1918 Spanish flu, that is a great cause for concern because the 1918 Spanish flu killed between 50 and 100 million people around the globe during the early part of the last century.

But according to the most recent research, the 1918 Spanish flu did indeed act much like the H1N1 mutation that is spreading in Ukraine and elsewhere.

According to a report entitled "Bacterial Pneumonia Caused Most Deaths in 1918 Influenza Pandemic" from the National Institutes of Health, research shows that most people did not die from the flu itself during the 1918 pandemic.....

Jeffery Taubenberger, M.D., Ph.D., examined lung tissue samples from 58 soldiers who died of influenza at various U. S. military bases in 1918 and 1919. The samples, preserved in paraffin blocks, were re-cut and stained to allow microscopic evaluation. Examination revealed a spectrum of tissue damage "ranging from changes characteristic of the primary viral pneumonia and evidence of tissue repair to evidence of severe, acute, secondary bacterial pneumonia," says Dr. Taubenberger. In most cases, he adds, the predominant disease at the time of death appeared to have been bacterial pneumonia. There also was evidence that the virus destroyed the cells lining the bronchial tubes, including cells with protective hair-like projections, or cilia. This loss made other kinds of cells throughout the entire respiratory tract — including cells deep in the lungs — vulnerable to attack by bacteria that migrated down the newly created pathway from the nose and throat.

According to another report entitled "Predominant role of bacterial pneumonia as a cause of death in pandemic influenza: implications for pandemic influenza preparedness", examination of samples from victims of the 1918 flu clearly revealed that bacterial pneumonia was involved in most of the deaths.....

The postmortem samples we examined from people who died of influenza during 1918-1919 uniformly exhibited severe changes indicative of bacterial pneumonia. Bacteriologic and histopathologic results from published autopsy series clearly and consistently implicated secondary bacterial pneumonia caused by common upper respiratory-tract bacteria in most influenza fatalities.

This explains why there was so much confusion during the initial stages of the current Ukraine pandemic.  There were some reports that H1N1 was killing people.  There were other reports that it was the pneumonic plague.  Others were reporting that it was just an unusual number of cases of pneumonia. 

Well, it turns out that what most likely is going on is that the H1N1 swine flu mutation in Ukraine is behaving in a very similar manner to the 1918 Spanish flu.   It is attacking the protective cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs, therefore allowing the bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat to invade the lungs and cause massive destruction.

Unfortunately that makes things more complicated.

You see, it has been admitted that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine will "probably" not be effective at all against this new H1N1 mutation detected in Ukraine.

In addition, once someone has contracted the mutant version of H1N1, it will not only be a matter of treating that virus - treatment will also be required to fight the bacteria invading the lungs.

Meanwhile, California officials have just announced that nearly 800 people in California were hospitalized with the H1N1 swine flu last week alone, the largest one week number of hospitalizations since swine flu cases began escalating this fall.

While some mainstream media outlets are heralding that the worst of the H1N1 swine flu is over, the truth is that we may only be entering the next chapter.  Let us all hope that this new H1N1 mutation does not develop into a major world flu pandemic like the 1918 Spanish flu did.

Tests Confirm The Swine Flu Vaccine Will Probably Not Work Against The Dangerous New H1N1 Mutation Spreading In Ukraine, Norway, Brazil, China And France

H1N1 Flu MutationH1N1 Mutation Similar To 1918 Spanish FluWill the H1N1 swine flu vaccine be effective against the dangerous new H1N1 mutation that has been confirmed in Ukraine, Norway, Brazil, China and France?  According to the New York Times, Britain’s national medical laboratory reported on Friday that it has been determined that one H1N1 sample from Ukraine with the new H1N1 mutation had changed so much that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine "probably would not protect against it well".  This means that it is likely that tens of millions of people around the world are being shot up with a vaccine that will simply offer them no protection against this virulent new strain of H1N1.  If the vaccine will not do any good, then what is going to stop the spread of this potentially very dangerous new strain which is rapidly drawing comparisons to the 1918 Spanish flu?

That is a great question.  For weeks, Ukraine has been gripped by a national health crisis as nearly 2 million people have reported becoming sick with a flu-like illness.  After an unexplainable delay, the WHO finally came out and confirmed that an H1N1 mutation had been confirmed in Ukraine.  The "D225G" H1N1 mutation has also now been found in fatal or severe cases in Brazil, Norway and China.

In addition, it has just come out that this dangerous new H1N1 swine flu mutation has shown up in two dead patients in France.

France's Health Surveillance Institute is saying the following about this H1N1  mutation.....

"The mutation could increase the ability of the virus to affect the respiratory tracts and, in particular, the lung tissue."

So far the WHO appears to be at a loss to explain how the same mutation has been showing up in so many diverse places around the globe.

At this point the WHO says that it is "not sure" how dangerous this new H1N1 mutation is.  In fact, the WHO has not yet even made a formal announcement regarding the fact that tests seem to indicate that the vaccine will fail against H1N1 with the D225G mutation.  Recombinomics recently posted some very sharp comments about the WHO's seeming negligence.....

However, even though this change is drawing additional attention daily, WHO has taken a position that the vaccine failure against H1N1 with this D225G is not worthy of an announcement.

This mindset is significant cause for concern and is hazardous to the world's health.

The truth is that this mutation is a very significant development and needs to be addressed.

In Ukraine, this new strain of H1N1 has reportedly been striking directly for the respiratory systems of its victims.  Doctors on the ground in Ukraine have reported that this virus causes massive hemorrhaging in the lungs.  As the lungs rapidly fill up with blood, temperatures inside the lungs can reach temperatures of up to 135 degrees Fahrenheit.  As the victims near death, the lungs turn as black as charcoal and literally begin to disintegrate.

One doctor in western Ukraine was quoted as saying the following about what this virus is doing to victims.....

"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal.  They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying."

These frightening deaths are causing an increasing number of medical experts to comment on just how similar this new strain of the H1N1 swine flu seems to be to the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.  The 1918 Spanish flu was also from the H1N1 family, and it also caused massive destruction and hemorrhaging in the respiratory systems of its victims.

In any event, the H1N1 situation around the globe is rapidly becoming more serious.....

Next door to Ukraine, approximately 1.5 million cases of acute respiratory illness and H1N1 flu have been reported in Belarus.

The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that H1N1 swine flu deaths in Europe are doubling every two weeks.

In fact, the WHO just announced that the global number of confirmed H1N1 deaths jumped by more than 1,000 in just one week.

In the U.S., this past week witnessed a record number of pediatric deaths from the H1N1 swine flu.

The last seven days has also seen a record number of H1N1 swine flu deaths in the U.K.

Things have gotten so bad in Romania that it was decided that schools should close for seven days due to a severe outbreak of the H1N1 swine flu virus.

Now there are fears that the dangerous new H1N1 mutation spreading elsewhere on the globe has already reached the heartland of the United States.

Commenting on a serious spike in H1N1 swine flu deaths in Iowa, Dr. Gregory Schmunk told KCCI news that what doctors there are seeing in H1N1 patients "is very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them."

That sounds frighteningly similar to what is happening in Ukraine.

While many mainstream media outlets around the world have been heralding pronouncements that the worst of the H1N1 swine flu is over, the truth is that this pandemic may just be getting started.

In the United States this comes at a time when the U.S. economy is literally falling apart, and the last things anyone needs is a major flu pandemic.  A flu outbreak that comes anywhere close to matching the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic could tip the U.S. economy into a full blown depression. 

Let us all hope that H1N1 does not continue to get worse.  If it does, we could all be looking at a very grim 2010.

Troubling Reports Out Of Iowa And North Carolina Raise Fears That Deadly H1N1 Swine Flu Mutations Have Already Reached The United States

H1N1 swine flu mutationH1N1 flu mutation alertNew reports from Iowa and North Carolina are raising concerns that the deadly H1N1 swine flu mutations that have been confirmed by the WHO in Ukraine, Norway and elsewhere have already reached the United States.  In Iowa, a report that doctors are seeing "very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them" in H1N1 patients is creating concerns among health experts that the deadly Ukraine H1N1 has already spread there.  In addition, a report of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 swine flu in North Carolina is raising questions about the ability of medical authorities to combat H1N1 if thousands of people do start dying.  If deadly H1N1 swine flu mutations have already reached the United States, what does that mean?  Doctors in Ukraine have been reporting that victims of H1N1 there are experiencing violent hemorrhaging in their lungs. As the patients near death, their lungs reportedly become as "black as charcoal" and literally begin to disintegrate.  Will this start happening soon inside the U.S.?

The news report causing the most concern today is the one about H1N1 patients in Iowa.  Commenting on a dramatic spike in H1N1 deaths in Iowa, Dr. Gregory Schmunk told KCCI news that what doctors there are seeing "is very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them."

Hemorrhagic lungs that are filled with blood?

That sounds precisely like what is taking place in Ukraine.

Last week, the WHO confirmed that an H1N1 mutation had been discovered in Ukraine. This H1N1 mutation involved a receptor binding domain change, and it is apparently causing the H1N1 virus to become much more virulent.

Just like the new report in Iowa, many victims of H1N1 in Ukraine have been experiencing violent hemorrhaging in the lungs.  Temperatures inside the lungs of patients in Ukraine have been reported to be as high as 135 degrees Fahrenheit.  As the patient near death, the lungs turn to mush and literally become as black as charcoal.

In fact, one doctor in Western Ukraine was quoted as saying the following about what is happening to the lungs of these patients.....

"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal. They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying."

If that wasn't bad enough, the WHO has now confirmed that the same H1N1 mutation has shown up in Norway.

Norway's Institute of Public Health has released a statement in which they announced that this mutation "could possibly...cause more severe disease" because it apparently infects tissue deeper in the airway than usual.

Not only that, but today Hong Kong's Department of Health has confirmed that it has found the same mutation in a H1N1 flu virus sample as the one detected in Norway recently.

Hong Kong is on the other side of the world from Ukraine and Norway. 

What in the world is going on?

Nobody knows for sure, but the truth is that the increasing similarities between the current H1N1 outbreak and the 1918 "Spanish flu" outbreak are becoming too striking to ignore.

Firstly, both the current outbreak and the 1918 Spanish flu are from the H1N1 family.

Secondly, both the current outbreak and the 1918 Spanish flu have the same mutation that is currently being reported in Ukraine, Norway and Hong Kong.

Thirdly, the hemorrhagic deaths that victims are experiencing in Ukraine closely mirror the kind of deaths experienced by victims of the 1918 Spanish flu.  Just consider the following description of 1918 Spanish flu deaths from Wikipedia.....

"One of the most striking of the complications was hemorrhage from mucous membranes, especially from the nose, stomach, and intestine. Bleeding from the ears and petechial hemorrhages in the skin also occurred."  The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung."

You would think this stunning information would be so important that the mainstream media would be all over it, but sadly that is not the case.  Instead they seem intent on covering the opening of the "New Moon" movie and whatever Barack Obama had for breakfast this morning.

But not only is the mutation discussed above a tremendous concern, but now there are confirmed reports that Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 is spreading.

Recently a Tamiflu-resistant strain of the H1N1 swine flu was reported to have been discovered in Wales, and now a Tamiflu-resistant cluster of the H1N1 swine flu has been reported in North Carolina.

However, medical authorities don't seem overly concerned.  Dr. Alicia Frye, epidemiologist in the CDC's flu division, said in a prepared statement that "at this time we don't have any information that should raise concerns for the general population."

If the best drugs medical authorities have will soon not work against H1N1, perhaps the public should be concerned.

Meanwhile the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention has announced that swine flu deaths in Europe are doubling every two weeks.

Swine flu deaths in Europe are doubling every two weeks?

Perhaps the mainstream media should start paying attention to this.

Posted below is one of the very few mainstream media video reports we have about the "black lung" flu that is ravaging Ukraine.....

All of this is happening at a time when environmental extremists are pushing the "overpopulation" myth harder than ever.  In fact, the United Nations Population Fund has just released its annual State of the World Population Report in which it openly calls for reducing world population growth as a way to combat climate change.  The reality is that if a deadly H1N1 mutation did kill tens of millions, many very sick environmental extremists would actually applaud.  Increasingly, many in the environmental community are viewing humanity itself as a "disease" that needs to be eradicated for the good of the earth.

Talk about a dangerous belief system.

If you have any additional intel on the spread of H1N1 mutations around the world please let us know.  As always, we invite your questions and comments.....

Confirmed! H1N1 Swine Flu Mutation Detected In Norway – Is The Virulent Ukraine Strain Spreading?

H1N1 mutationH1N1 Swine Flu Mutation In NorwayIs the mutant Ukraine H1N1 swine flu strain showing up in dead and dying patients in Norway?  That is what some recent tests appear to indicate.  Yesterday we posted an article about how the WHO has now confirmed that the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated in Ukraine.  So has this more virulent strain of the H1N1 swine flu now spread to other countries in Europe?

Well, Recombinomics has posted a translation of a report out of Norway that seems to indicate that it has..... 

Laboratory tests from 70 patients are examined, of which eight patients have died. Total is the mutation found in five of the patients. Two of them are dead, while the other three have been hospitalized with serious illness in intensive care units.

The new mutated virus thrives further down the respiratory system than the original. It shuts down the lungs of patients, which means more severe disease than the original virus, which first affects the throat and upper respiratory tract.

In their analysis of this report, Recombinomics stated that it seems very likely that the exact same mutation that has shown up in Ukraine is now showing up in Norway.....

The above translation suggests that D225G has been found in the lungs of dead and dying patients in Norway. An investigation into the excessive H1N1 deaths in Norway had been ordered and a news conference has been called to discuss the "mutation". The description sounds like the D225G found in fatal cases in Ukraine.

In fact, in an official statement, the WHO has confirmed that a mutation of the H1N1 swine flu has been detected in Norway....

"The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has informed WHO of a mutation detected in three H1N1 viruses."

In fact, the WHO now says that a similar mutation has been observed in Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico, Ukraine, and the United States.

Norway's Institute of Public Health says that this mutation "could possibly...cause more severe disease" because it apparently infects tissue deeper in the airway than usual.

So if this mutant form of the H1N1 swine flu virus has gotten out should we all be concerned?

Well, after reading reports from those on the ground in Ukraine, perhaps we should all be extremely concerned....

For example, Ukrainian Professor Viktor Bachinsky recently described what he is seeing in victims of this mutant flu....

"The virus, which causes death, is very aggressive, it does not strike the trachea, but immediately gets into the lungs and causes heavy swelling and solid hemorrhage. Mixed types of parainfluenza and influenza A/N1N1 lead to this state. This is a very toxic strain, which has not yet answered to the treatment of the Ministry of Health."

The reality is that this mutant H1N1 swine flu virus totally destroys the lungs of its victims.  Recombinomics recently posted a translation of an official announcement by the Ukraine Ministry of Health that graphically described how horrible this flu actually is....

The symptoms are observed at different stages of disease - a fever with a temperature over 38 C, cough, respiratory disorders. When cough was characterized by negligible allocation phlegm or dry unproductive cough with blotches of blood. All the patients come to hospital on average by 3-7 days of onset, were in serious condition. Period of time from onset to death averaged from 4 to 7 days. In all patients during a hospital for signs of respiratory insufficiency of various degrees, which quickly rose and manifested accelerated respiration rate, shortness of breath and effectiveness of independent breathing. X-ray studies were performed on 1-2 day hospitalization. Most patients experienced a double-headed particles of lower lung lesion, followed by a trend towards total destruction.

In fact, it is being reported that the temperature inside the lungs of the victims of this flu reaches temperatures of between 130 and 135 degrees Fahrenheit as the virus quickly turns the lungs of the victims to mush.

One doctor in Western Ukraine was quoted as saying the following about what the lungs of  people who have died from this flu look like....

"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal.  They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying."

This frightening thing is that these reports sound chillingly similar to descriptions of how people died from the Spanish flu back in 1918.  That horrific flu outbreak killed somewhere between 50 and 100 million people worldwide, and it is regarded as the worst flu pandemic in modern times.  

Read the following description of the 1918 Spanish flu from Wikipedia and compare it to the reports above.  Does it not sound similar to what is now happening in Ukraine?.... 

"One of the most striking of the complications was hemorrhage from mucous membranes, especially from the nose, stomach, and intestine. Bleeding from the ears and petechial hemorrhages in the skin also occurred."

The truth is that the similarities are too striking to ignore.  The Spanish flu was also an "H1N1" flu.  It also killed people by destroying the lungs and filling them with blood just like the current mutant strain in Ukraine is doing.  Just check out how Wikipedia describes the horrific deaths that were caused by the 1918 Spanish flu....

The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung.

If this mutant strain even kills a small fraction of the people that the Spanish flu killed then this will almost certainly be the biggest news story of 2010.

In fact, there are disturbing indications that this mutant flu is already spreading.....

*It has been reported that almost 17 percent of the population of Norway has now contracted the flu.  Considering the reports from Norway at the beginning of this article, that is a very sobering statistic.

*There has just been a very sudden surge in swine flu deaths in Ontario, Canada.  In fact, there is one report that 24 residents of Ontario recently died from the flu in just a 72 hour period.

*It has also been reported that there are nearly a quarter of a million people seriously ill with the H1N1 swine flu in Belarus, and there are unconfirmed reports that patients in Belarus are dying the exact same kind of horrible deaths from the H1N1 swine flu that we are seeing in Ukraine.

*In addition, a national H1N1 swine flu pandemic has been officially declared by the Health Ministry in Bulgaria. Symptoms of the H1N1 swine flu in Bulgaria include temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius, severe pain in the bones and muscles, coughing, and the quick development of pneumonia.

*Also, in a very disturbing development, a Tamiflu resistant strain of the H1N1 swine flu has now shown up in Wales.

What is unfortunate about this news is that it is going to cause a bunch more people to run out and get injected with the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, even though it is not known if the vaccine will do any good at all against this new strain and even though reports of adverse reactions to the vaccine are pouring in from all over the world.  If you doubt this, please refer to the recent article posted on our sister site entitled "An Avalanche Of Reports Of Adverse Reactions To The H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine – And Yet World Health Authorities Continue To Insist That It Is Safe"

If you have any additional information on H1N1 swine flu mutations around the globe please let us know.  As always, we welcome your comments....

WHO Confirms That The H1N1 Swine Flu Has Mutated In Ukraine – But That We Should Not Worry

H1N1 Swine FluUkraine H1N1 FluThe WHO has officially released the sequences taken from the test patients in Ukraine, and the findings have shown that the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated.  However, the WHO is also saying that this is not a "large" mutation and that everyone should still run out and take the H1N1 swine flu vaccine.  Meanwhile, over 1.5 million people in Ukraine have reported catching this flu and the death toll there continues to rise rapidly.  If this Ukraine flu is not a big concern as the WHO claims, then why is it turning the lungs of victims black and raising internal temperatures inside of the lungs of victims to over 130 degrees Fahrenheit?

Recombinomics recently did a really good job of breaking down the science of this H1N1 mutation in Ukraine.....

Included in the sequences from 10 isolates were four HA sequences with the receptor binding domain change, D225G, which was found in the one throat and three lung samples. The change was not found in isolates from nasopharyngeal washes, suggesting D225G may lead to high concentrations of H1N1 in patient's lungs. The high concentration of virus leads to a cytokine storm that destroys the lungs in a few days.

As additional demographic information regarding the samples was released, Recombinomics released an update stating that it seems as though the mutant H1N1 swine flu on the loose in Ukraine is indeed more aggressive and is a serious cause for concern.....

The patient data associated with the 10 Ukraine isolates sequenced by Mill Hill and deposited at GISAID has been updated with demographic information, suggesting that the samples were from 10 individuals and four of the samples were from deceased patients.  These are the same four samples that have D225G (see list below).  This association suggests that swine H1N1 with D225G is more aggressive and is cause for concern.

But in an official statement, the WHO insists that there is no reason to be overly concerned by this mutation and that everyone should still run out and get injected with the H1N1 swine flu vaccine.....

Preliminary genetic sequencing shows that the virus is similar to the virus used for production of the pandemic influenza vaccine, reconfirming the vaccine's efficacy at this time.

So just what in the world is going on here?  The reality is that the lungs of the victims of this flu in Ukraine are turning as black as charcoal and are almost completely disintegrating as the victims near death.

But the WHO says that we should not be concerned about an H1N1 mutation that causes that?

Meanwhile, reports are coming in of people dying with similar symptoms in a hospital in Bialystok in the northeast section of Poland.

Is this an indication that the mutant H1N1 flu virus has spread beyond the borders of Ukraine?

In any event, an H1N1 flu which destroys lungs and turns them as "black as charcoal" as the Russia Today video report below describes should be a serious cause for concern for all of us no matter what the WHO says.....

At the same time, there are many environmental extremists who would actually cheer if a mutant H1N1 flu virus killed millions of people across the globe.  To learn about the radical population control agenda of the environmental extremist elite, we encourage you to read our recent article: "One Less Child? Environmental Extremists Warn That Overpopulation Is Causing Climate Change And Will Ultimately Destroy The Earth".

Finally! The Western Mainstream Media Reports On The Mystery Flu Plague In Ukraine As The Death Toll Reaches 299

Ukraine mystery flu pandemicUkraine mutant H1N1 swine flu mystery outbreakSome western mainstream media outlets are finally reporting on the mystery flu plague in Ukraine as the death toll there has now reached 299.  In fact, one newspaper in the U.K. is even linking the outbreak in Ukraine to the 1918 Spanish flu that killed between 50 and 100 million people across the globe in the early portion of the last century.  Reports from medical personnel on the ground in Ukraine continue to be very disturbing.  In fact, one doctor is reporting that the virus is turning the lungs of patients "as black as charcoal" and that the situation there is "terrifying".

The truth is that all major mainstream media outlets should have been reporting on the mystery outbeak in Ukraine over a week ago.  Incredibly disturbing reports have been coming out of Ukraine for quite some time now, and those reports have pretty much only been covered by a handful of alternative news sites such as this one.

But now fortunately a few outlets in the western mainstream media are picking up this story.  For example, The Daily Mail ran a story on Sunday that featured this headline:  "British scientists testing Ukrainian 'super flu' that has killed 189 people".

In their article, the Daily mail credits an unnamed doctor in western Ukraine with the following very disturbing quotes.....

"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal."

"They look like they have been burned. It's terrifying."

You would think quotes like that would make front page headlines around the world.

But the western media is asleep at the switch.

The Daily Mail also reports that Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk has written a letter to the EU asking them to take quick action to combat this outbreak before it spreads to other nations.....

"The character of this threat demands that rapid action be undertaken at the European Union level."

In fact, the Daily Mail reported in their article that Russia, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Romania are performing "health checks" on all Ukrainians who are coming across the borders into their countries.

Does all of this not sound like earth shattering news?

But CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, The New York Times and The Washington Post are all completely ignoring this vitally important news story.

No wonder the mainstream media is quickly becoming irrelevant and many newspapers are going out of business.

What kind of "sources" are they waiting for?

The Daily Mail quotes the President of Ukraine himself, Viktor Yushchenko, as making the following three statements about the mystery flu plague in Ukraine..... 

"People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century."  

"Unlike similar epidemics in other countries, three causes of serious viral infections came together simultaneously in Ukraine: two seasonal flus and the Californian flu."

"Virologists conclude that this combination of infections may produce an even more aggressive new virus as a result of mutation."

When the president of a nation starts making statements like those above, perhaps the mainstream media should wake up and start covering what could be the most important news story in the world.

Just what in the world is going on?

Virus samples taken from patients in Ukraine by the WHO are being tested at the Medical Research council labs in Mill Hill North London.

But apparently they do not want to tell us what is going on either.

Another major U.K. news source, Daily Express, quotes a spokesman as saying the following about the testing of the samples.....

"We do not have a time scale for the results of the tests, although some preliminary results have been obtained. I cannot tell you what they are."

"We did not have enough of the virus samples so we will have to grow some more before we can come to a conclusive decision about its nature."

What in the world?  They have some "preliminary results" but they cannot tell us what they are?

The Daily Express is calling it a "plague worse than swine flu" and the WHO "cannot" tell us anything about what we are facing.

Something does not smell right. 

Meanwhile, disturbing new reports are coming in from Poland that airplanes carrying out aerosol spraying have been flying in the middle of the night.  In addition, reports are coming out of Austria of similar spraying taking place there

So why are those reports troubling?  Well, because there were reports of airplanes carrying out aerosol spraying in Ukraine about the time when this new outbreak began there.

So what in the world is going on?

Nobody knows for sure, and the mainstream media is being incredibly negligent by ignoring this story.

1.25 Million Contract Mystery Flu In Ukraine As Flu Cases Spike In Russia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Serbia, Norway, India And Canada

Ukraine mystery H1N1 flu destroying the lungsSwine Flu Panic In Ukraine, Belarus, Bulgaria, SerbiaThe latest numbers out of Ukraine indicate that 1.25 million people have now contracted what is being called "the mystery flu". Over 65,000 of those have required hospitalization and 239 are officially reported to be dead. As the situation in Ukraine continues to become more dire, many health experts continue to be absolutely perplexed as to why the WHO continues to refuse to release the sequences from the samples taken from patients in Ukraine well over a week ago.  Meanwhile, there has been a dramatic spike in flu cases in neighboring countries such as Russia, Belarus and Bulgaria.  In addition, a dramatic increase in flu cases is being reported in Serbia, Norway, India and Canada.  In many of these nations there are reports of the flu virus absolutely disintegrating the lungs of patients just like it is doing in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Professor Viktor Bachinsky recently commented on the behavior of this mystery flu, and his assessment of this virus is very sobering..... 

"The virus, which causes death, is very aggressive, it does not strike the trachea, but immediately gets into the lungs and causes heavy swelling and solid hemorrhage. Mixed types of parainfluenza and influenza A/N1N1 lead to this state. This is a very toxic strain, which has not yet answered to the treatment of the Ministry of Health."

So what in the world is going on there?

Hopefully world health authorities will have some answers for us soon.

Meanwhile flu cases across the globe continue to spike.....

*Thirty-five patients with "swine flu-like symptoms" have died in the last 45 days at just one hospital in India, and not one of them tested positive for the H1N1 swine flu.

*It is being reported that almost 17 percent of the population of Norway has contracted the flu.

*A sudden spike in H1N1 deaths over the past week in Canada is raising concerns that the pandemic virus is taking a far greater toll on Canadians during the "second wave" of this crisis.

*Russian Chief Public Health Official Gennady Onishchenko recently announced that most Russian regions are on the verge of a major flu epidemic.

*It is being reported that there are nearly a quarter of a million people seriously ill with the flu in Belarus, and indications are that patients there are dying the same kind of deaths that we are seeing in Ukraine.

*Serbia's health ministry has proclaimed an H1N1 swine flu epidemic in that nation, as flu panic causes a surge of garlic sales at Belgrade's produce markets.

*A national swine flu epidemic has been declared by the Health Ministry in Bulgaria.  Symptoms there include temperatures over 40C, severe pains in the bones and muscles, coughing, and the quick development of pneumonia.

But all of this has barely made a peep in the U.S. media.  Is the U.S. media so incredibly self-centered that they consider these outbreaks unimportant, or has someone made a decision to keep these developments quiet for now?

In any event, a lot of people are getting sick and a lot of people are starting to die.  Whatever this mystery flu is, it is quickly filling up the lungs of its victims before ultimately shredding them.  People are dying absolutely horrifying deaths from this "hemorrhagic flu".

If you have any intel about the situation in Ukraine or anywhere else please feel free to post a comment below.  Since the U.S. media is being so silent about all of this, it is absolutely vital that we all work together to get this information out.

Could we be on the verge of one of the plagues of the last days?  Only time will tell.  For more on how Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes, we encourage you to visit our new website: The Last Days.

Has The H1N1 Swine Flu Virus Mutated To Become More Like The 1918 Spanish Flu? Dying Patients In Ukraine Are Experiencing The Total Destruction Of Their Lungs

Has The H1N1 Swine Flu Virus Mutated To Become More Like The 1918 Spanish FluDying Patients In Ukraine Are Experiencing The Total Destruction Of Their LungsHas the H1N1 swine flu virus in Ukraine mutated to become more like the 1918 Spanish flu that killed 50 to 100 million people across the globe?  Just like the current H1N1 swine flu virus sweeping the globe, the 1918 Spanish flu was a virus strain of subtype H1N1.  Just like the current H1N1 swine flu virus, most of the victims of the Spanish flu were healthy young adults.  Now news has come out that the patients that are dying in Ukraine are experiencing the total destruction of their lungs - just like the 1918 Spanish flu.

Recombinomics has posted a translation from an announcement by the Ukraine Ministry of Health that describes what is happening to these patients and how their lungs are being absolutely destroyed by this virus:

The symptoms are observed at different stages of disease - a fever with a temperature over 38 C, cough, respiratory disorders. When cough was characterized by negligible allocation phlegm or dry unproductive cough with blotches of blood. All the patients come to hospital on average by 3-7 days of onset, were in serious condition. Period of time from onset to death averaged from 4 to 7 days. In all patients during a hospital for signs of respiratory insufficiency of various degrees, which quickly rose and manifested accelerated respiration rate, shortness of breath and effectiveness of independent breathing. X-ray studies were performed on 1-2 day hospitalization. Most patients experienced a double-headed particles of lower lung lesion, followed by a trend towards total destruction.

Reports such as this, along with the fact that the WHO has not released the sequences from the samples taken from patients in Ukraine is leading Recombinomics and others to fear that the H1N1 swine flu virus has indeed mutated and become more like the 1918 Spanish flu.

In fact, infectious disease expert Dr. Donald Lau claims that the odds of the Ukrainian pandemic virus being the exact same H1N1 virus that is infecting the rest of the world are extremely low: "The statistical probability of this being the same H1N1 virus are infinitesimally small."

In any event, the situation in Ukraine is quickly becoming worse.  As we reported yesterday, almost 1 million people in Ukraine have now reported flu-like symptoms.  In addition, 6 health care workers have died and more than 2000 other health care workers are now seriously ill in Ukraine with flu-like symptoms.

But what is most striking is how incredibly similar the virus ravaging Ukraine is to the 1918 Spanish flu.  Recent reports from Ukraine indicate that victims of the virus have been bleeding from every orifice.  Now consider the following description of the 1918 Spanish flu from Wikipedia:

"One of the most striking of the complications was hemorrhage from mucous membranes, especially from the nose, stomach, and intestine. Bleeding from the ears and petechial hemorrhages in the skin also occurred."

Not only that, but pneumonia has been so prominent in Ukraine that it led many to speculate that it was actually pneumonic plague that was killing people there.  In addition, one of the most prominent features of the virus in Ukraine is that it causes massive hemorrhaging and destruction in the lungs.

Considering that, check out how Wikipedia describes the deaths that were caused by the 1918 Spanish flu

The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung.

So has the H1N1 swine flu virus mutated to become more similar to the 1918 Spanish flu?  If not, it sure is acting a whole lot like the 1918 Spanish flu.

And that would be really, really bad news.  The 1918 Spanish flu killed approximately 3 percent of the world's population.  Tens of millions of people died. 

Nearly a hundred years later, humanity circulates around the globe so much faster thanks to our amazing advances in transportation.  Therefore, a truly horrific virus could spread to virtually every corner of the globe in record time.

In addition, if the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated, it is likely that the swine flu vaccine will not do an ounce of good to fight the mutated virus.  Instead, many natural health experts are warning that taking the H1N1 swine flu vaccine will fry your immune system and make it even more likely that you will catch the next virus to come along.

Not only that, but reports of adverse reactions to the swine flu vaccine are quickly coming in from all over the globe.  In particular, pregnant women who have taken the vaccine (remember they were pushed to the front of the line for the vaccine) are reporting absolutely horrific miscarriage stories.

This whole thing is quickly becoming a total worldwide health disaster.  If you have any additional intel that you think that we should be made aware of please be sure to leave a comment below.

Russia, Belarus And Bulgaria On The Verge Of A Flu Epidemic As Cases In Ukraine Near 1 Million

Ukraine Flu Epidemic Lungs Filled With BloodUkraine H1N1 Swine Flu EpidemicLast week, samples from patients who had died were sent by the WHO to facilities in the U.K. for analysis.  The delay of the release of these results is raising concerns that either the H1N1 swine flu has mutated or that the epidemic in Ukraine is being caused by something else entirely.  This comes at a time when the number of patients in Ukraine reporting flu-like symptoms has reached almost a million, and as reports come out that Russia, Belarus and Bulgaria are also on the verge of a major flu epidemic.

The situation in Ukraine seem to get more dire by the day, and things don't appear to be any better now that the latest numbers from Ukraine have been released. At this point, 969,247 people are reported to be sick with flu-like symptoms, 48,972 people have been hospitalized, and 155 people have died.  The severity of the outbreak in Ukraine compared to what is happening in the rest of the world has many health experts speculating that either the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated or that another disease such as pneumonic plague is involved.

But now many of Ukraine's neighbors are reporting that they are on the verge of a "flu epidemic" themselves....

*Russian Chief Public Health Official Gennady Onishchenko said on Friday that most Russian regions are on the verge of a flu epidemic.

*In recent weeks, the Belarusian capital of Minsk has seen an estimated 10 deaths from pneumonia that was preceded by flu-like symptoms.

*A national swine flu epidemic has been declared by the Health Ministry in Bulgaria on the grounds that the number of people that have contracted the H1N1 swine flu has reached 210 per 10,000.

Disturbing reports are even beginning to surface in western Europe.  In Austria, special army units based in Korneuburg, the exact same place where Baxter has its facilities, have been conducting pandemic emergency exercises and quarantining patients in hospitals.  Are they expecting something to happen?

The latest video update on the situation in Ukraine from Russia Today is posted below.....

The release of the genetic sequences from the patient samples in Ukraine is now way overdue, and the fact that the WHO is delaying the release of this information is increasing pandemic concerns.  Are they trying to hide something?  Are they hoping not to panic the public?

The reality is that if the samples show that the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated, people all over the globe need to know as quickly as possible.  Any needless delay about a change in the disease could cause thousands of preventable deaths.

In any event, the events in Ukraine during the past week have certainly been the most alarming since the H1N1 swine flu virus surfaced last spring.  To hear of large numbers of victims dying with lungs that had been filled with blood and that looked like they had almost melted is more than a little disturbing.  Hopefully the WHO can get us some honest answers as quickly as possible.

Mutant H1N1 Swine Flu Or Pneumonic Plague? Number Of People In Ukraine With Mystery Illness Almost Doubles In Two Days To Nearly Half A Million!

Ukraine pnumonic plague or H1N1 swine fluUkraine PandemicThe pandemic situation in Ukraine has rapidly gotten worse.  In fact, the number of people in Ukraine who have contracted serious respiratory illness has almost doubled in two days to nearly half a million.  The number of confirmed deaths is 81, although there are some sources that suggest that the number of deaths is actually much higher.  While some mainstream media outlets still refuse to consider the possibility that the outbreak in Ukraine is anything other than the H1N1 strain that is found in other areas of the world, the reality is that the hemorrhagic nature of the respiratory disease in Ukraine has many health experts speculating either that the H1N1 swine flu virus has mutated in that region or that what is happening in Ukraine is an outbreak of pneumonic plague.

For those health experts that believe that the outbreak in Ukraine is primarily being caused by the H1N1 virus, the fact that the cases in Ukraine appear to be clustered is raising concerns that the H1N1 swine flu virus could now have mutated into a more virulent form.  Recombinomics is quoting an earlier report about some of these patients in Ukraine to show just how severely the virus is affecting patients in that region..... 

All the six dead young people had symptoms of severe hemmorhagic pneumonia. The disease starts slowly, with temperature rising to 37.2 - 37.3 degrees, slight cough and pain in joints. Nasal catarrh developed at the end of the second or third day. Autopsy revealed that the lungs were soaked with blood, the oblast chief specialist said.

Recombinomics is also reporting that the severe respiratory disease cases in Ukraine "are clearly hemorrhagic disease that fills lungs with blood and produces bleeding at all orifices, which are stark reminders of 1918 pandemic cases which were also linked to a swine H1N1."

A disease which fills the lungs with blood and produces bleeding at all orifices?

Yikes!

It is funny how this outbreak in Ukraine is increasingly being compared to the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.

Perhaps it was not a good idea for scientists to dig up and reconstruct the Spanish flu virus back in 1998.  You see, in February 1998 Johan Hultin recovered samples of the 1918 Spanish flu virus from the frozen corpse of an Alaskan woman buried for decades in the permafrost near Brevig Mission, Alaska.

Was it really such a grand idea to bring back a flu virus that killed approximately 50 million people across the globe in 1918?

Could this virus, or a similar virus, be causing the problems that we are currently seeing in Ukraine?

Perhaps it is not the flu at all.  In fact, there are some health experts that are claiming that what we are seeing in Ukraine right now is an outbreak of the pneumonic plague.

From the very beginning of the outbreak, many Ukrainians were buying into the rumor that Ukraine has been infected with pneumonic plague by their neighbor Russia.  Now it seems very unlikely that Russia is involved, but the rumors that pneumonic plague is involved will not go away.  The following are quotes from one international website.....

"In Ukraine over the past week about 1500 people have already died. As noted by some doctors, the reason - pneumonic plague. High temperatures from the first day, a burning sensation in the chest, the desire to drink cold and nausea - all of these symptoms are frightening. People die within few days."

"Odessa and the region is already infected, most likely, is mutated pneumonic plague , - said one of the doctors of private clinics in Odessa."

"I have met with friends from the western Ukraine, the doctors say that the lungs of the dead were black. And that, perhaps this is not influenza but pneumonic plague."

Not only that, but on Steve Quayle's website, one eyewitness reportedly from Romania is insisting that the mystery illness in Ukraine is the pneumonic plague, and that it has already spread to Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary.....

It is quite possible that what they are really dealing with is the Pnumonic Plague or black death. There are outbreaks all over Romania now, however they will not give any details on the infection and are still insisting that it is all swine flu. My bravo sierra detector is going off big time. What I am seeing here in Romania and getting reports of in Ukraine, poland, Bulgaria, and Hungary is afast moving disease. If is is the black death, you should be concerned, when the black death wiped out 25% of Europe it took 4 years before the plague subsided. It is virulent however it does NOT burn itself out quickly. Sounds like I need some thieves oil.

It is still early and details are sketchy, but the Romanian authorities and the press here are definitely covering something up.

Whatever is going on over in Ukraine, it sounds like it is extremely serious.  Up until now, the whole swine flu crisis has mostly been a bunch of hype.  The H1N1 swine flu has been a mild flu bug that has been killing far less people than the normal seasonal flu does. 

However, this situation in Ukraine may represent something else entirely.  For the number of cases to double in just two days is extremely alarming.

The following video report from Russia Today posted below is one of the few mainstream video reports out there that we currently have about the situation in Ukraine.....
 

This is definitely a situation that we all need to keep a close eye on.  If any of you have any additional intel about what is going on in Ukraine, please leave a comment below.

The Most Important News

H1N1 Swine Flu Or Something Far Worse? The Debate Over What The Heck Is Going On In Ukraine Rages On

Ukraine H1N1 Swine Fluquestion markAt this hour a team of experts from the World Health Organization is on the ground in Ukraine, but the search for solid answers about what in the world is going on there has not made much progress.  Some sources are insisting that it is just the same old H1N1 swine flu that is found in the rest of the world.  Others are speculating that the H1N1 swine flu there has mutated into a much deadlier form.  Other sources are absolutely convinced that the H1N1 swine flu simply could not produce the kind of deaths that are being seen right now in Ukraine. 

The latest government numbers tell us that over a quarter of a million Ukrainians have developed flu-like symptoms, over 15,000 have been hospitalized, 235 are in intensive care and 70 people have died.

Of those 70 deaths, 22 have tested positive for the swine flu, although Bloomberg is reporting that authorities are saying that it is "difficult to tell" whether the pandemic H1N1 virus is responsible for all the cases.

Observers have noted that the death rate does seem to be substantially higher than in other European nations, so some are speculating that the H1N1 swine flu may have mutated into a more virulent form in that region.

The World Health Organization team of experts plans to collect samples from patients in the Ukraine and send them to the WHO’s center in London for diagnosis.  Preliminary data from that analysis should be available in a few days.

Meanwhile, a retired biochemist quoted over on the Urban Survival website is extremely skeptical that the carnage in the Ukraine is being caused by the H1N1 swine flu.....

What scares the **** out of me is that the bleeding in the lungs is exactly what killed a lot of folks in the 1918-19 pandemic. See the great book "The Great Influenza: The story of the deadliest pandemic in history ." People would literally fall dead walking across the street. The bleeding out of the lungs was most likely the result of a "cytokine storm" that so increased the vascular permeability in the air sacks that blood filled the lungs. The reason why the mortality in the 1918-1919 pandemic was concentrated in the 18-25 yo cohort was that they had the most active immune systems.

Now I've NO conjecture as to who may have let this loose or why. But I do know that the technology is widespread to replicate the 1918-1919 virus that killed 2-4 million Americans and about 50 million world wide. And folks only traveled by ship in 1918. And there is NO vaccine for this flu type.

Hopefully we will know in a couple of weeks the sequences of the 8 RNA pieces in the Ukraine virus. I'll bet the farm that it is a replicant of the "Spanish Flu." If so, the odds are totally infinitesimal that this was NOT a deliberate bioweapon release.

I note that long haul truckers will simply go home and park their rigs if this flu reaches the USA. And exactly what reason do we have to suppose that it will be confined to Ukraine? The average city has 3 days of food. Connect the dots... please...............

Other early reports indicated that the H1N1 swine flu had been ruled out as the cause for at least some of the deaths in Ukraine.

So just what in the world IS going on over there?

Hopefully the WHO will have some honest answers for us over the next few days.  If the number of deaths starts climbing into the hundreds or thousands we may have a truly serious problem on our hands. 

Up until now, the H1N1 swine flu "pandemic" has mostly been a bunch of hype.  World health authorities tell us that about 500,000 people die from the regular seasonal flu around the world each year, and yet only about 5,700 have died from the H1N1 swine flu worldwide so far.

Hardly something to be worried about.

But if the H1N1 swine flu mutates, or if this outbreak in Ukraine is something else entirely, then we may have something real to worry ourselves about.

Swine Flu? Typhus? Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever? Pneumonic Plague? Panic Explodes As A Mystery Illness Rips Through Ukraine

UkraineUkraine Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever Bird FluTonight the nation of Ukraine is in an absolute state of panic as a mystery illness rips through that country.  Some reports are claiming that this mystery illness is a more virulent form of the H1N1 swine flu.  Other reports are linking the mystery illness with typhus, ebola hemorrhagic fever or even the pneumonic plague.  What all the media reports do agree on is that an epidemic is devastating Ukraine tonight and that a wave of panic is sweeping over that nation.

The following is a list of many of the most recent reports that we have received regarding this outbreak.  Hopefully there will be additional reports that will clarify the situation in Ukraine over the next 24 hours.....

*One report says that this mystery illness begins as an ordinary bout of the flu, but after a week the symptoms get far worse.  The report says that approximately 40,000 Ukrainians have contracted the disease and that about 30 people there have died of it so far.

*Ukraine Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has ordered schools and cinemas closed and has banned public gatherings for three weeks to contain the spread of the mystery virus amid growing panic over several dozen unexplained deaths in the western areas of the country.

*The Kyiv Post is reporting that Ukraine’s Health Ministry has not yet determined whether the recent deaths are related to the H1N1 swine flu virus, but they have admitted to sending more than 1,200 doses of Tamiflu to western Ukraine.

*The World Health Organization has announced that it is sending a team of experts to the Ukraine to investigate reports of severe H1N1 disease there.

*Recombinomics is reporting that four doctors have died of the flu in Ukraine's Ternopol and Lvov regions.

*There is a report that the temperature inside of the lungs of those dying from this illness reached up to 55 degrees Celsius (over 130 degrees Fahrenheit).  In other words, their lungs virtually melted and filled with blood. 

*Rumors that the mystery illness could be connected to typhus or ebola hemorrhagic fever are circulating in Ukraine.

*One international media report claims that the Ukraine Ministry of Health has not established the exact diagnosis of the epidemic disease in the western regions of Ukraine yet, but that pneumonic plague is suspected.

*Meanwhile, a second man has died of pneumonic plague in a remote part of northwest China where a city of more than 10,000 people has been sealed off.  Could this be linked to the outbreak in Ukraine?

The following Russia Today video report contains some of the basic information that is known about the situation in Ukraine.....

If you have any additional information about what is happening in Ukraine please leave a comment below.  Whatever the illness there turns out to be, it sounds VERY serious and it seems to be spreading very fast.  Let us all hope that this is not the beginning of a nightmare.

Dr. Leonard Horowitz Rips Apart ABC’s Dr. Oz And Exposes The Truth Behind The H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Fraud

Dr. Leonard Horowitz Swine Flu Vaccine SafetyDr. Oz Swine Flu Vaccine FraudMany Americans watch corporate-funded shills like ABC's Doctor Oz tell them that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine is perfectly safe and then run out and allow themselves and their families to be injected with a dangerous mixture of ingredients that is so toxic that it does not even deserve to be called a "vaccine". In case you do not know about what is in these "vaccines", you need to read an earlier article that we published entitled "In Case You Were Wondering Why We Don’t Want To Take Your Swine Flu Vaccines". The reality is that the big financial interests that own or have financial ties to ABC and the other big mainstream media outlets are the same big financial interests that own or have financial ties to the big pharmaceutical companies that are producing the swine flu vaccines. Do you actually think that the corporate owners that are making massive profits off of the vaccines are going to allow doctors to go on the television networks that they own and tell the American people that the vaccines are bad for them?

Fortunately, there are independent doctors like Dr. Leonard Horowitz and Dr. Sherri Tenpenny who are providing the American people with the other side of the vaccine safety debate.  In the videos that you will view in this post, Dr. Horowitz rips apart ABC's Dr. Oz and exposes the truth behind the H1N1 swine flu vaccine fraud.  After you watch these videos you will not be so eager to run out and get your family shot up with toxic sewage.

Part 1 of the 3 part YouTube video series by Dr. Horowitz is posted at the top of this article.  Parts 2 and 3 are posted below.  After you have watched these videos, we would love to hear your opinions about them in the comments section below.

Part 3:

The truth is that you are NOT going to hear a balanced debate about swine flu vaccine safety on network television.  The big pharmaceutical corporations buy millions upon millions upon millions of dollars worth of advertising on network television.  Do you think that the networks are going to stick it to their biggest advertisers?  In addition, as you saw in the videos above, the very same big money interests that control network television are very often the very same big money interests that own the big pharmaceutical companies.

You cannot just blindly rely on the television to make your decisions for you.  Do your own research and make the best decisions for yourself and your family that you can.

Do Not Take The H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Until You Read These Tragic Real Life Vaccine Horror Stories

H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Horror StoriesSwine Flu Vaccine DangerMillions of Americans are lining up to take the H1N1 swine flu vaccine with no idea about the horrible things that could happen to them.  In this article you will read tragic real life vaccine horror stories from people who have personally experienced devastating vaccine side effects.  Each of the accounts that you will read below were unsolicited.  When we started this site, we began posting stories about the dangers of vaccines, and when people came across our articles they wanted to share their own painful experiences with vaccines.  If the American people knew of the tragic stories of the thousands upon thousands of people whose lives have been devastated by vaccines they would not be so eager to line up to take them.  The following are some of those stories.....

Ann:

My friend was diagnosed w/GBS today. She had the H1N1 vaccine on Tuesday. She woke up friday morn. with one side of her face paralized, now almost her whole face is paralized. She is starting blood and plasma transfusions tonight. She will be transferred to Barnes hospital soon for more extensive testing. To those who laugh at the severity of this strange, unknown sickness and vaccine I hope you stay informed and not ignorant.

Carrie:

I am a healthcare employee…..the only vaccine offered to employees was the live vaccine. I decided to get it and be the “guinea pig” instead of my toddler. Received the nasal spray on Tuesday, woke up Wednesday with a sore throat and stuffy nose, Thursday had a terrible chest congestion/cough with fever and splitting headache, Friday all symptoms were worse and I couldn’t breathe! I was diagnosed on Friday with H1N1 and pneumonia….. good thing I got the vaccine, huh?

Martha:

I too have taken the flu vaccine on Sept. 16th 2009 and have had reaction to the shot that was different yet very scary and the symptoms seem to change regularly. Of course, I was a perfectly healthy woman of 56 when administered and have had the flu and strange symptoms since. I contacted the community center where the shot was taken and have been told that it was not the shot as others had the same lot but no reaction. My symtoms were high fever, and not being able to walk from dizziness for 2 weeks. Then received the flu that has had me down for another 2 weeks. If anyone else has had these symptoms, I would appreciate a email. I now have pain in my feet and legs that seems to get worse daily.

Svetlana:

I have a friend who took the flu shot in 2001 I believe, and after, started to display neurological problems in his body, like loosing muscle control all over. Since then, he has been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) disease. He is unable to talk or do anything for himself, even to swallow, so he is fed through a tube in his stomach. His wife is taking care of him. It is terrible what happened to my friend, he also was fit and healthy all of his life. None of us are taking the flu shot. We have been spared from it, by the grace of God.

John:

In 1976 my grandmother received a flu shot and developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome as a result of the flu shot and died.

Eugenia:

I have two children who have autism spectrum disorders because of the mercury and other toxic agents put into vaccinations that I didn’t realize till too late. To force someone to take this especially when they have a health issue is ludicrous!!

Christian:

1977 I was ORDERED to get the swine flu shot. I got it. The next day (after I got it) we were ordered to NOT get it. My muscles in my calves were showing spasms. Of course the military doctors were saying too soon to be caused by the shot.

Yeah/Right!

Dolores:

I do recall that when swine-flu vaccine was administered in the 70’s, a friend of mine, 28-yrs old, in good health and no known physical disorder of any kind at the time, but as soon as she recd the swine-vaccine, within a month or so, developed breast cancer and underwent surgery. Thanks be to God, we (my husband and children) were fearful of that vaccine and prayed most heartily for God’s powerful help and protection. Yes, I am very scared of this dreadful vaccine as it may kill us instead of healing people. Jesus have mercy on us and drive all the dark forces hovering around the world, destroying God’s creation.

Sandra:

I know a woman whose baby stopped breathing and turned blue several times and had to be rushed to emergency in the 24 hours following the second series of shots (4 months old). Several years later, the identical thing happened to her second baby after vaccination. She still didn’t connect it. That’s how deeply brainwashed our society has become by the high priests of the religion of modern medicine. Every year our population becomes weaker and the instances of autoimmune disease and autism are skyrocketing at an alarming rate.

Parent of Adem:

In January of 2001, my 22 year old son had a flu shot. Within a week he was in a coma and totally paralyzed – Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)- see http://www.adem.org/. After 2-1/2 months in ICU and an additional 4-1/2 months in rehab, he was able to come home. Today he plays quad rugby and lives in a fully handicap accessible house – all because of an extremely rare reaction to a flu shot. What’s happening in response to the swine flu is frightening.

Jack:

Back in the 70’s I was at the peak of health and stamina (college years). I got the SWINE FLU vaccination.

Within a couple days I was virtually paralyzed with my leg, arm, stomach, neck, and chest muscles in so much pain I could barely move. That lasted for over 1 week. It was the worst pain I’ve been in my entire life (and that includes later having my arm literally torn open (~150 stitches), a broken neck, and a broken back).

It took over a month to slowly improve back to normal functonality, while remaining in considerable pain for a great deal of that time.

Jill:

A friend took her son to get his 2 year check up and refused MMR due to vaccine risk concerns. She was delaying and would get them separately. The MD insisted she give him the seasonal flu shot because the flu was going to be bad that year (it was 2003 I believe). She complied, not having done any research on the flu shot. Her son developed fever that night, had diarrhea and illness for three weeks, stopped walking and talking. Six months later he was crawling around the house banging his head on the wall and crying all day. She could barely complete a sentence because she was so devastated. An investigation confirmed vaccine induced Autism. I will never give the flu shot to my kids after seeing what it has done to my friend and her only child.

If the tragic stories that people have posted on our site are not enough to persuade you to avoid the swine flu vaccine, perhaps what happened to NFL cheerleader Desiree Jennings will cause you to stop and think. Taking the seasonal flu vaccine this year changed her life forever.....

The truth is that these vaccines are not as safe as government officials insist that they are.  Thanks to the Congress, you will not be able to sue vaccine manufacturers if something goes wrong.  Do not blindly trust the health of your family to corrupt government bureaucrats or to the talking heads on television.  Do your own research and make an informed decision.  It is about time that we all started thinking for ourselves.
