Vitamin D is the solution

"New research suggests that influenza is also a disease triggered by vitamin D deficiency. Influenza virus exists in the population year-round, but influenza epidemics are seasonal and occur only in the winter (in northern latitudes), when vitamin D blood levels are at their nadir. Vitamin D-expressed genes instruct macrophages, the front-line defenders in the innate immune system, to make antimicrobial peptides, which are like antibiotics (Science 2006;311:1770–1773). These peptides attack and destroy influenza virus particles, and in human carriers keep it at bay. (Neutrophils and natural killer cells in the innate immune system and epithelial cells lining the respiratory tract also synthesize these virucidal peptides.) Other vitamin D-expressed genes rein in macrophages fighting an infection to keep them from overreacting and releasing too many inflammatory agents (cytokines) that can damage infected tissue. In the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, which killed 50 million people, of which 500,000 were Americans, young healthy adults (as happened to my 22-year-old grandmother) would wake up in the morning feeling well, start drowning in their own inflammation as the day wore on, and be dead by midnight. Autopsies showed complete destruction of the epithelial cells lining the respiratory tract due, as researchers now know, to a macrophage-induced overly severe inflammatory reaction to the virus. These flu victims were attacked and killed by their own immune system, something researchers have found vitamin D can prevent (Epidemiol Infect 2006;134:1129–1140)."


Agree about D-3.

Spanish flu may have been a WMD.

Anybody ever watch the movie Awakenings?
Deals with the 1917-1928 epidemic of encephalitis lethargica which many believe was a result of the Spanish Flu...EL is a central nervous system disorder. Very interesting to research with regard the the Spanish Flu pandemeic and the vaccine related to it.

I saw a documentary on PBS a couple of years back

I think it was called Influenza 1918. After watching that doc and knowing what governments have admitted to doing, I have new suspicions. In the documentary, There are a couple of red flags. They say the flu outbreak that killed so many started during WWI. Since chemical weapons were all the rage at that time, it's not a far leap to imagine them using a biological weapon. I'm not saying they engineered it, of course, but a controlled release wouldn't be out of the question. They also said that in America, the outbreak traced back to an Army base in Kansas. Now if it came over from Europe on a boat, how did it get to and kill several guys on an army base in Kansas. People traveled primarily by train and boat and car at that time. They said this flu took you down fast. Also the eugenics movement was in full force at that time and well laced into the government so reducing the population was always on the table by various means.

Anyway, I just have my suspicions.

Please tell me why this is funny

This propaganda only sickens me.

Case in point: That "14-year-old Carly Christenson, who died yesterday at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota." Well, she dutifully took her blasted flu shot this year. It either lowered her immune system or gave he the flu itself.

And people don't die of the flu. People die of pneumonia that the flu developed into or they die of dehydration.

I hate vaccine propaganda geared to sell more vaccines.

I think it is funny because

I think it is funny because it is blatant yellow journalism to scare us all into getting a shot.
