A UN (United
Nations) report leaked to The Observer claims that
swine flu could "kill millions" of people in poor nations and cause
a total breakdown of society unless wealthy nations come up with
US$1.5 billion to pay for pandemic vaccines and anti-viral drugs.
It warns that the fragile economies of
developing nations could be completely destroyed by the breakdown of
social services, infrastructure and medical care.
The report specifically says:
"Countries where health services are
overburdened by diseases, such as HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and
malaria, will have great difficulty managing the surge of cases.
And if the electricity and water sectors are not able to
maintain services, this will have serious implications for the
ability of the health sector to function...
If suppliers of fuel, food,
telecommunications, finance or transport services have not
developed plans as to how they would continue to deliver their
services, the consequences could be significantly intensified."
This UN report identifies 75 countries
that remain vulnerable to this chaos scenario:
The only way to prevent the possible
collapse of these nations, the report says, is for this $1.5 billion
to be spent on vaccines and anti-viral drugs.
There is no mention in the report of teaching the citizens of poor
nations how to use their own local indigenous medicine, or how to
get more vitamin D from sunlight, or even how to boost their immune
system health through dietary changes.
The suggestions of the entire report
come down to just two things: Vaccines and anti-viral drugs.
United Nations (UN) medical scam
So what's the real story behind all this? All be blunt: In my
opinion, this report is just another
Big Pharma scam.
It's designed to scare people into
sending even more money to the drug companies to buy their drugs and
vaccines. The threat of the "complete collapse" of these poorer
nations is designed to leverage first-world fear to motivate these
nations to spend more money on precisely the things that make the
pharmaceutical industry wealthy.
There's no doubt that the citizens of poor nations need help
improving their health, but that should be accomplished through
education and the use of local medicinal plants, not through the
chemical intervention of greedy corporations from first-world
nations. The last thing the people of poor nations need is yet
another imperialist band of profit-minded corporations telling them
to get injected.
Haven't we already learned what happens when drug companies are
allowed to exploit the people of poor nations?
Pfizer, for example, exploited the children of
Nigeria to run illegal drug experiments. This cost the
drug company $75 million in a class action settlement, and it
cemented the company's reputation as an evil killer in the minds of
It's obvious to the leaders of such nations that drug companies have
no interest in actually helping their people; they're only
interested in exploiting them for profit. This UN scare story is
just another first-world tactic to funnel yet more money to the drug
companies who will only harm the populations of poor nations.
It's not enough to vaccinate all the people in wealthy nations, you
see. The drug companies have realized they'll make more money if
they can sell even more vaccines and anti-viral drugs to people
outside the countries where such pharmaceuticals can be readily
afforded. But because poor nations can't afford to pay Big Pharma's
monopoly prices for these items, the only way to collect on the
vaccinations of the world's poor is to make sure wealthy nations
front the cash.
That's the real point behind this UN
scare report, in my view.
nations are at greater risk
But the UN has it all wrong in the first place. If H1N1 becomes a
raging pandemic, it's not the poor nations of the world that are
most at risk: It's first-world nations like the United States.
For several reasons:
People in the U.S. work indoors
and are more
vitamin D deficiency than people in poorer
nations. Thus, they are far more vulnerable to pandemic
People in the U.S. have largely
indigenous medicine, so when the vaccines and
anti-virals run out, they have no other options. People in
poor nations, on the other hand, generally have local
knowledge about medicinal, anti-viral plants and medicines.
As a highly complex, specialized
society, the U.S. is far more susceptible to cascading
collapse than poor nations that aren't very far removed from
their agrarian ways. In many ways, poor nations can't really
"collapse" because they're already operating at a very basic
level. The U.S., on the other hand, has a long way to fall.
Of course, first-world nations think
their medical technology will save everyone.
But this is a dangerous and wild
assumption that completely ignores two important facts:
Fact #1) There aren't enough
hospital beds in countries like the U.S. to treat even 5% of
the population during a pandemic.
Fact #2) All the vaccines and
anti-viral drugs relied on by first-world nations can be
rendered utterly useless virtually overnight if the virus
mutates to a resistant form.
Essentially, first-world nations are
highly arrogant about their western medicine, and they tend to think
that "poor" nations are helpless without vaccines and
But the reality is often the opposite:
Poor nations in South America, for example, are sitting on a huge
medicine chest of natural anti-viral plants growing across the
continent, and the locals still remember how to use those medicines.
Brazil, in particular, has
enough natural medicine to treat not only its entire
population, but the population of the entire South American
continent if they chose to harvest and prepare those
Peru is in a similarly
advantageous situation, as is Bolivia.
It is only the reliance on western
pharmaceuticals that makes these nations vulnerable during a
Any nation that ignores its own natural
medicines and chooses to rely on the patented, monopoly-priced
vaccines and drugs from Big Pharma is setting itself up for
disaster. Indeed, the chaos scenarios described by the UN may come
true, but only if poor nations abandon their roots and surrender
their medical sovereignty to western pharmaceutical companies.
The smartest thing any nation can do about swine flu right now is to
run public service announcements teaching their populations about
vitamin D, healthy dietary habits and immune-boosting herbal
medicine. That's the way to protect the people of the world from any
pandemic. Chemical intervention offers no long-term solutions
because it doesn't provide true immunity. It only sets people up for
a far worse future infection that wreaks even more havoc on peoples'
vaccine-compromised immune systems.
Make no mistake:
The mass vaccination of the
populations in poor nations is just another form of medical
imperialism designed to make those nations dependent on
first-world pharmaceutical products.
The same kind of games are played with
finance, agricultural products (GM seeds) and consumer products,
too. Drug companies want to expand their markets into poor nations.
They want to compromise the immune
systems of an entire generation, creating future repeat business
from these people who will need more advanced (and expensive)
medical procedures that eventually stem from the long-term side

helping them do it by donating - or investing - millions of dollars for global

Big Pharma to scare up another
billion customers for Big Pharma.
