Aspirin kills 400% more people than H1N1 swine flu
Friday, November 20, 2009 by Mike Adams
(NaturalNews) The CDC now reports that nearly 4,000 Americans have
been killed by H1N1 swine flu. This number is supposed to sound big and
scary, motivating millions of people to go out and pay good money to be
injected with untested, unproven H1N1 vaccines. But let's put the
number in perspective: Did you know that more than four times as many people are killed each year by common NSAID painkillers like aspirin?
The July 1998 issue of The American Journal of Medicine explains it as follows:
calculations estimate that approximately 107,000 patients are
hospitalized annually for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug
(NSAID)-related gastrointestinal (GI) complications and at least 16,500
NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis patients alone." (Singh Gurkirpal, MD, “Recent Considerations in Nonsteroidal
Anti-Inflammatory Drug Gastropathy”, The American Journal of Medicine,
July 27, 1998, p. 31S)
So for every person the CDC claims was killed by H1N1 swine flu this year, common painkillers like aspirin have killed four!
Yet you don't see the CDC, FDA, WHO or mainstream media running around
screaming about the extreme dangers of aspirin, do you? All those
deaths apparently don't matter. Only swine flu deaths lead to hysteria.
According to death statistics tables available on the 'net, you are ten times more likely to die in a car accident this year than be killed by swine flu.
100,000 Americans die every year from adverse reactions to FDA-approved
prescription drugs. That's twenty-five times the number of people
killed by H1N1 swine flu (even if you believe the CDC's numbers). So
where's the big warning about the dangers of prescription drugs? Why
isn't the CDC warning Americans about an "epidemic of dangerous drugs"
that poses a far greater threat to your health?
The answer, of
course, is that health authorities want to push people to buy vaccines
that are about to become worthless (they're only good before swine flu
fizzles out). And the only way to sell more vaccines to people who
don't need them is to hype up a bunch of scare stories by citing bold
statistics that make H1N1 swine flu seem really, really dangerous.
But the flu is no more dangerous than aspirin. In fact, H1N1 swine flu may be safer than aspirin.
Here's another quote from the New England Journal of Medicine:
has been estimated conservatively that 16,500 NSAID-related deaths
occur among patients with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis every
year in the United States. This figure is similar to the number of
deaths from the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and considerably
greater than the number of deaths from multiple myeloma, asthma,
cervical cancer, or Hodgkin’s disease. If deaths from gastrointestinal
toxic effects from NSAIDs were tabulated separately in the National
Vital Statistics reports, these effects would constitute the 15th most
common cause of death in the United States. Yet these toxic effects
remain mainly a “silent epidemic,” with many physicians and most
patients unaware of the magnitude of the problem. Furthermore the
mortality statistics do not include deaths ascribed to the use of
over-the-counter NSAIDS." (Wolfe M. MD, Lichtenstein D. MD, and Singh
Gurkirpal, MD, “Gastrointestinal Toxicity of Nonsteroidal
Anti-inflammatory Drugs”, The New England Journal of Medicine, June 17,
1999, Vol. 340, No. 24, pp. 1888-1889.)
Did you catch that?
The 16,500 figure for deaths each year doesn't even include
over-the-counter painkiller drugs! If you add in those numbers, you're
probably looking at something closer to 40,000 Americans kills each
year by these drugs. And that makes these drugs 1000% more deadly than swine flu (because 40,000 is ten times greater than 4,000).
Swine flu vs. seasonal flu
Also according to CDC statistics, swine flu is only approximately one-tenth as dangerous as regular seasonal flu. That's because the CDC maintains that seasonal flu kills 36,000 Americans each year (a figure that I've already pointed out is highly suspect, but that's what they claim).
even seasonal flu is nothing to get all worked up over. Unless you're
in a state of terrible health with a compromised immune system, obesity
and asthma, beating seasonal flu is a no-brainer: Just nourish your
body with vitamin D, zinc, superfoods and natural health supplements
and let your built-in immune technology do its job. Your immune system
has already saved your life countless times. It knows how to do it if
you give it the right nutrition.
There are lots of things that are far more dangerous than swine flu and yet are openly sold to consumers. Over 400,000 Americans die each year from smoking
and yet you can buy cigarettes at Walgreens, Wal-Mart and CVS
pharmacies. That means statistically, these pharmacies knowingly sell a
product that kills 400 times as many people as swine flu has
this year. Where's the alarm about the epidemic of tobacco-related
deaths? Nowhere. Not a word from the CDC or WHO.
pharmacies really cared about your health, why do they openly sell a
product that causes cancer and heart disease? Think about it...
They're just trying to sell you something that will harm you
The fact is, pharmacies will sell anything that makes money:
Tobacco, processed junk food, and of course H1N1 vaccines. If they
could make money selling influenza, they'd sell that, too. To the
pharmaceutical retailers, it doesn't matter how many people die from
the products they sell. They're just in business to sell anything that
turns a profit, regardless of the consequences to public health.
And the vaccine industry is similarly motivated to sell you false ideas that make money.
By selling you on the concept that swine flu is extremely dangerous,
they can manipulate you into buying yet more harmful stuff they're
hawking at pharmacies... like H1N1 vaccines. And they're counting on
the fact that the American people won't do the math (or can't).
people have a very poor understanding of risk, and the vaccine industry
is counting on precisely that risk assessment ineptitude to push its
dangerous vaccines. If people knew that they are 40 times more likely
to be struck by lightning than to have their life saved by a swine flu
vaccine, very few would line up to be injected with one. But they don't
grasp the difference between numbers that are very far apart such as
10^2 versus 10^5. To many people, those factors are "about the same"
and it's worth getting injected with a vaccine "just in case."
why I've always stated a simple truth that still holds true today:
People who seek out vaccine shots are the same kind of people who
regularly play the lotto. Both decisions demonstrate a complete lack of
understanding risk vs. reward. In fact, if you get a swine flu vaccine
injection on the same day you buy a lotto ticket, you have a greater chance of buying a winning lotto ticket than being saved by the swine flu vaccine.
Playing the lotto is actually smarter
than getting a swine flu vaccine shot. Plus, the lotto ticket won't
potentially cause neurological damage that puts you in a coma or causes
the spontaneous abortion of your baby -- both of which have been
happening to people after receiving H1N1 vaccine shots. http://www.naturalnews.com/027548_swine_flu_vaccines_death_risk.html
