Flu and Anti-Health Statements

Over the past four years or so I have experienced a number of events having to do with using my intellectual material, found on my web sites, without recognition and without request. I am aware that the person responsible for this activity has done the same to several other people I know.

A couple of months age I experienced a scathing attack that is defamatory, by this person, who is basically engaged in an SEO operation, backed by an organization that refuses to disclose any information about its principals or its operation. I do know that they maintain some 500 or so web sites of various quality. I have read - as well - some comments about this organization using backlinks unknown to web site owners.

I do not know this person's motives, or those of his handlers, because I do not know him, except by his activities.

Currently we have been fed a story regarding "swine flu" by the mainstream media. We are hearing that a drug known to be harmful and a cause of death is what should be used for this "new flu". Here at Natural Health News we published the Tamiflu information originally in 2005, and reposted with updates this past May 1.

Now read this report on Tamiflu. One does have to wonder exactly what Mike Adam's mission is... and you have to be the judge.

According to Mike Adams, “Technically speaking, there is zero credible scientific evidence that Tamiflu works to treat swine flu infections.” But in the same page he goes on to say, “Take Tamiflu if you can get it. It's a very effective antiviral drug. If I were infected with swine flu and offered some Tamiflu, I'd take it, too.” Adams excuses the dangers saying, “I'm not against Tamiflu. It's a very effective anti-viral drug, thanks to the fact that it's derived from a natural anti-viral herb. Tamiflu is derived from a Traditional Chinese Medicine herb called star anise.” First of all Japanese star anise contains anisatin, which can cause severe inflammation of the kidneys, urinary tract and digestive organs. Secondly, in 2005, there was a temporary shortage of star anise due to its use in making Tamiflu. Late in that year, a way was found of making shikimic acid artificially. A drug company named Roche now derives some of the raw material it needs from fermenting E. coli bacteria!"

With this kind of mis-information I do have to wonder what kind of a health advocate you find in the "Health Ranger".

Perhaps you too might ask exactly what are his motives. And remember Adams is not a person with a background in health, medicine, or pharmacology. While he may have an interest in health, his mission and activities are still a deep and dark secret.

Tamiflu is not an effective drug based on the facts we have obtained and also from adverse reports. It is a drug that has now been proven to be 100% resistant to any effective activity against a virus.

If you take the time to read about Tamiflu in the posts on Natural Health News or from other credible resources - not sensationalists - you will find very similar information.

Thank you. I saw that article by Mike Adams and almost couldn't believe it. He's been known to get a bit carried away, to put it delicately, but the obvious inconsistency in that article is just stunning.

Wonder if he'll follow up with some clarification...

In any event, while I've found some articles on Natural News to be useful, the quality is so variable and the quantity of articles so large that I sometimes wonder if it's worth the effort to try to sort through the info over there to find the gems. If they would just exercise some consistent standards, it would be helpful to their readers and would ultimately boost the credibility of the site.

On the other hand, I sometimes wonder if many readers are capable of discernment. Natural News seems to be successful, so a large contingent of people must either be very gullible, don't care about accuracy, or are incapable of discernment (not that the foregoing are mutually exclusive).

Nor is Natural News singular. Mercola is another one who often provides really good information but intersperses it with some really spurious and/or poorly thought-through stuff.

Maybe it's just about money.
