WHO criticised over ties to swine flu vaccine
“THE WORLD Health Organisation (WHO) is being accused by some politicians of exaggerating the dangers of swine flu under pressure from drug companies.
The Council of Europe has alleged that pharmaceutical
companies have forced WHO to declare swine flu, also known as H1N1, a pandemic in order to make massive profits. “False pandemics: a threat to health” will be one of the major themes of the next Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France, to be held from January 25 to 29. The council is a political group of 47 countries.
The assembly is to launch an inquiry on the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on the global flu campaign, focusing especially on the extent of the companies’ influence on WHO. GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and Sanofi-Aventis are among H1N1-vaccine producers. The announcement comes at a time when governments are
trying to get rid of the their stockpiles of the flu vaccines or cut orders because the swine flu pandemic that was
proclaimed by WHO never materialised.”
figures…..i did read about this, but why am i not surprised
Follow the money. Actually when we first started hearing about it there was a (reportedly) extremely high death rate in Mexico, and with the catchy name the press ran with it causing the politicians and drug companies to plot how to exploit the situation. Isn’t it funny how nobody it talking about it now that the vaccine if finally available and the case load is about to explode during the winter months.
