1976 Swine Flu Fiasco
DeJa Vu All Over Again
In 1976, the government declared a Swine Flu epidemic and vaccinated 30 million people. The vaccination campaign was halted because more people were killed from the vaccine than from the Swine Flu.
Vaccinations Halted Because of Adverse Effects
The Swine Flu vaccine caused an adverse side effect in 500 people called Guillain Barre Syndrome, a neurological disorder causing paralysis. 25 people died as a result of respiratory failure from Guillan Barre Paralysis.

Vaccine Injury Litigation - Law Was Changed
The 1976 Swine Flu vaccination program was canceled amid a flurry of vaccine injury lawsuits. Since then, the law was changed making vaccine manufacturers immune from litigation. Don't expect litigation to protect you this time.
Be Prepared for the Swine Flu by Watching this Important Video
Mike Wallace of CBS does a "60 MINUTES" documentary on the swine flu epidemics of 1976 in the U.S. It went on air only once and was never shown again.

Fear Mongering Media Hype
Don't fall for the fear mongering hype this time. "Dr. Marc Siegel, a practicing internist and associate professor of medicine at the New York University School of Medicine ... isn't buying into the scare scenario. 'If anything is contagious right now, it's judgment clouded by fear,' Siegel said."
Fast Tracking New Vaccines Means Very Little Testing of New Materials
There are billions of dollars at stake for several vaccine manufactures racing to be the first to produce a Swine Flu Vaccine using novel techniques and materials. The Fast Track program means very little safety testing.
Immune Adjuvants in Vaccines
One of the contenders, Novartis makes a vaccine containing immune adjuvants, that are associated with devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus. In addition, many of these vaccine companies have been involved in various past vaccine scandals (link). Where are the peer reviewed publications in the medical literature showing Swine Flu Vaccine to be safe? Don't hold your breathe.
How to Avoid the Flu?
Fortify your immune system with Vitamin D and Vitamin C, maintain hydration with plenty of fluids, avoid sugar and processed foods. Avoid food additives such as aspartame and MSG. Avoid GMO foods (corn and soy products) and avoid trans fats (processed vegetable oils). Eat an organic diet high in live (raw) vegetarian foods.

"The 1976 swine flu outbreak, also known as the swine flu fiasco, or the swine flu debacle, was a strain of H1N1 influenza virus that appeared in 1976. Infections were only detected from January 19 to February 9, and were not found outside Fort Dix. The outbreak is most remembered for the mass immunization that it prompted in the United States. The strain itself killed one person and hospitalized 13. However, side-effects from the vaccine caused 25 deaths."
"On February 15, 1976, an army recruit at Fort Dix said he felt tired and weak. He died the next day and four of his fellow soldiers were later hospitalized. Two weeks after his death, health officials announced that swine flu was the cause of death and that this strain of flu appeared to be closely related to the strain involved in the 1918 flu pandemic. Alarmed public-health officials decided that action must be taken to head off another major pandemic, and they urged President Gerald Ford that every person in the U.S. be vaccinated for the disease. The vaccination program was plagued by delays and public relations problems, but about 24% of the population had been vaccinated by the time the program was canceled. Only one person, the Fort Dix army recruit, died from the flu."
"There were reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing neuromuscular disorder, affecting some people who had received swine flu immunizations. This syndrome is a rare side-effect of modern influenza vaccines, with an incidence of about one case per million vaccinations. As a result, Di Justo writes that "the public refused to trust a government-operated health program that killed old people and crippled young people." In total, less than 33 percent of the population had been immunized by the end of 1976. The National Influenza Immunization Program was effectively halted on December 16."
"Overall, about 500 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), resulting in death from severe pulmonary complications for 25 people, were probably caused by an immunopathological reaction to the 1976 vaccine. Other influenza vaccines have not been linked to Guillain-Barré syndrome, though caution is advised for certain individuals, particularly those with a history of GBS."

Government Propaganda in Swine Flu Scare Causes Many Deaths
Below is the full transcript of the 1979 broadcast from the CBS investigative news program 60 Minutes on government propaganda around the 1976 swine flu scare.The program was aired on Sunday, November 4, 1979. Only one person was killed by the actual flu, while hundreds filed claims of death of their loved ones from the massive vaccine campaign which was mounted. Key sections are highlighted in bold.

Swine Flu 1976
MIKE WALLACE: The flu season is upon us. Which type will we worry about this year, and what kind of shots will we be told to take? Remember the swine flu scare of 1976? That was the year the U.S. government told us all that swine flu could turn out to be a killer that could spread across the nation, and Washington decided that every man, woman and child in the nation should get a shot to prevent a nation-wide outbreak, a pandemic.
Well 46 million of us obediently took the shot, and now 4,000 Americans are claiming damages from Uncle Sam amounting to three and a half billion dollars because of what happened when they took that shot. By far the greatest number of the claims - two thirds of them are for neurological damage, or even death, allegedly triggered by the flu shot.
Swine flu: Vaccine risks and dangers July 7, 3:30 PM
According to the CDC, approximately 36,000 people die each year in the U.S. from the regular flu. That averages to about 100 people a day. The total number of confirmed mortalities in the U.S. from the swine flu since the virus was identified in March is less than 200, less than the number of people who die in two days from the regular flu. Yet don't be surprised if you soon start to see propaganda for mandatory vaccination, starting with our children. Mandatory vaccines bring billions of dollars to big pharma and more control for politicians.
Swine flu: Pandemic of fear. Is it like avian flu which netted Donald Rumsfeld $5 million?
How much can we trust government when huge profits are at stake? How much influence do the lobbyists of the huge pharmaceuticals have over our elected representatives? Is there a possibility that the government might even have had a hand in the creation of both the avian flu and swine flu? These are questions that warrant media and public attention as this current wave of fear spreads.
Some experts publicly claimed that the avian flu was not a threat and was being used as hype. As one newspaper stated, "Dr. Marc Siegel, a practicing internist and associate professor of medicine at the New York University School of Medicine ... isn't buying into the scare scenario. 'If anything is contagious right now, it's judgment clouded by fear,' Siegel said." Notice the many similarities in all of this between the avian flu and swine flu.

Fast Tracking of Experimental Vaccines With Novel Adjuvants
Whenever the CDC declares a public health emergency, that declaration allows the Food and Drug Administration to permit emergency use authorization for drug companies to fast track creation of experimental drugs and vaccines that do not have to be tested as thoroughly as vaccines that go through the normal FDA licensing process17. In this case, Congress responded to the public health emergency declaration by giving a group of drug companies one billion dollars18 to fast track experimental swine flu vaccines that may include whole live19, killed or genetically engineered human and animal influenza viruses, chemicals, and potentially reactive oil based adjuvants that manipulate the immune system to boost the vaccine’s potency20,21,22.

Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu Tuesday, July 7, 2009 By: Dr. Russell Blaylock
Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.
