    Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurolog

    Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America | Mail Online

    A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

    The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

    It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

    GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

    The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications.

    The whole rush to judgment on the swine flu has cause a panic, and those on the left are responsible for this fiasco.

    This wasn't the first indication that this would be a problem. Everyone already knew that the flu shot would cause a minuscule risk of Guillain-Barre, because that's what all flu shots do. It's not specific to the 2009 H1N1 shot. It's about a 1/100,000 chance of getting it, and even if you get it, there's a 95% chance that you'll recover.

    All vaccines come with risks attached.
    The risks are miniscule; I strongly dislike fearmongers who exaggerate risks in an effort to convince people not to get vaccinated, under the guise of "warning" them.
    To what purpose do you do this?
    We are all far, far better off in a world where everybody gets all of their vaccines.

    CDC: 76 Kids Dead Of Swine Flu As Cases Rise - Health News Story - WSB Atlanta

    Health officials said Friday that 76 U.S. children have died of swine flu, including 19 new reports in the past week -- more evidence the new virus is unusually dangerous for the young.
    I love this part

    The CDC doesn't have an exact count of all swine flu deaths and hospitalizations, but existing reports suggest more than 600 have died and more than 9,000 have been hospitalized. Health officials believe millions of Americans have caught the virus.
    I find that mind boggling.... the supposed lead on this pandemic has no clue on how many have been sick or died of the pandemic....

    But that brings me to the point of posting this information. There are risks in everything we jab in our bodies to protect us from something. The Swine flu vaccine is no different in its manufacturing than the seasonal flue jab which has been given to millions over the last many years without many complications.

    What is sure, is that those groups who normally do not die of the seasonal flu are the hardest hit with swine flu deaths. 19 children reported in a week, in a system that is not geared to acutely keep track on the problem.. mind boggling. And we barely started flu season.

    I was just reading an article about this the other day, Pete. They said the world health agencies stopped counting on purpose. Blew my mind. They said why, but I forget the reason cuz it seemed so dumb to me.

    I believe the reason was it was officially a pandemic and hence no need to count, since the counting was only done to see if the technical aspects of announcing a pandemic were met.. yea a lame excuse. Over here we count every death and sick person still.

    This is ridiculous. The risks of dying from GBS that you get from the vaccine are *tiny* compared to the risks of dying from swine flu.

    Wow, way to trot out the partisan hackery. And it only took one post.

    Never miss a chance to tell us how much better Europe is than the US, eh?

    Common sense tells me that the reason we don't have a precise count is because it's incredibly difficult to distinguish swine flu deaths from regular flu deaths from deaths due to a combination of things. I very much doubt the counts in Europe are that much more precise, regardless of what they tell you.

    And the biggest thing with GBS is just neuron damage. Sure GBS isn't just mercury attacking peoples nerves? Something that has proven to be in swine shot vaccines.
