Last year’s scare about a swine flu “pandemic” was driven by the World Health Organization. It has recently come to light that scientists responsible for the alert had financial ties to the companies that made the vaccine. read the full story:

The Council of Europe member states will launch an inquiry in January 2010 on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent of the pharma‘s industry’s influence on WHO. The Health Committee of the EU Parliament has unanimously passed a resolution calling for the inquiry. The step is a long-overdue move to public transparency of a “Golden Triangle” of drug corruption between WHO, the pharma industry and academic scientists that has permanently damaged the lives of millions and even caused death.
The parliament motion was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, former SPD Member of the German Bundestag and now chairman of the Health Committee of PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe). Wodarg is a medical doctor and epidemiologist, a specialist in lung disease and environmental medicine, who considers the current “pandemic” Swine Flu campaign of the WHO to be “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the Century.”
The text of the resolution just passed by a sufficient number in the Council of Europe Parliament says among other things, “In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines. The “bird-flu”-campaign (2005/06) combined with the “swine-flu”-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.”
The Parliamentary inquiry will look into the issue of „falsified pandemic“ that was declared by WHO in June 2009 on the advice of its group of academic experts, SAGE, many of whose members have been documented to have intense financial ties to the same pharmaceutical giants such as GlaxoSmithKline, Roche, Novartis, who benefit from the production of drugs and untested H1N1 vaccines. They will investigate the influence of the pharma industry in creation of a worldwide campaign against the so-called H5N1 “Avian Flu” and H1N1 Swine Flu. The inquiry will be given “urgent” priority in the general assembly of the parliament.
In his official statement to the Committee, Wodarg criticized the influence of the pharma industry on scientists and officials of WHO, stating that it has led to the situation where “unnecessarily millions of healthy people are exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines,” and that, for a flu strain that is “vastly less harmful” than all previous flu epidemics.
Wodarg says the role of the WHO and its the pandemic emergency declaration in June needs to be the special focus of the European Parliamentary inquiry. For the first time, the WHO criteria for a pandemic was changed in April 2009 as the first Mexico cases were reported, to make not the actual risk of a disease but the number of cases of the disease basis to declare “Pandemic.” By classifying the swine flu as pandemic, nations were compelled to implement pandemic plans and also the purchase swine flu vaccines. Because WHO is not subject to any parliamentary control, Wodarg argues it is necessary for governments to insist on accountability. The inquiry will also to look at the role of the two critical agencies in Germany issuing guidelines on the pandemic, the Paul-Ehrlich and the Robert-Koch Institute.

I receive Dr. Mercola’s free health newsletter regularly by email. Before you take any flu vaccine you MUST read this: Critical Alert: The Swine Flu Pandemic – Fact or Fiction?
And Fred Burks has this to say:
The swine flu was first announced less than a week ago, yet people around the world are in a panic. People with a simple cough or cold are now wondering if they might die. Indonesia just banned all imports of pork, when there is zero evidence that the flu comes from pigs. There are many important facts not being adequately reported in the media.
Thanks to the extensive network of careful researchers of which I’m a part (including most of you), I can recommend two summaries that are very powerful for understanding the deeper aspects of what’s going on. The first is an article I composed, putting together the best, most reliable information on the subject. Check it out at:
As a teaser, the CDC recommends Tamiflu for prevention and treatment of swine flu, as they did with the avian flu several years ago. Yet did you know that at the height of the avian flu scare, researchers reviewed 51 randomized controlled trials of the drug? Tamiflu was found to be useless against the avian flu and many other flus. And did you know that Donald Rumsfeld made $5 million on sales of the drug at the time? And what about Japan’s ban on Tamiflu for teenagers as a result of the 17 teenagers who died as a result of side effects? You can verify all of this at the links to major media sources provided.
I’m in an age group that is supposed to be at increased risk from influenza, but I refuse to join the annual stampede to get the latest version of the flu shot. Why? Because I believe the shots to be dangerous and to do more harm than good. This is not an uninformed position. I rely upon scientific evidence, of which there is plenty, reported by credible sources. You owe it to yourself and you family to do your own research and make up your own mind. A recent article on Dr. Mercola’s website titled, The Case Against Tamiflu, is a good place to start. Among other things, the article says, “For most people, the flu shot does not prevent illness, but actually does just the opposite — it weakens your immune system and makes you more predisposed to the illness. They’re also loaded with neurotoxic substances like mercury and aluminum.”
