(CBS) If you’ve been diagnosed “probable” or “presumed” 2009 H1N1 or “swine flu” in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all. That’s according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation.
…When CDC did not provide us with the material, we filed a Freedom of Information request with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). More than two months later, the request has not been fulfilled. We also asked CDC for state-by-state test results prior to halting of testing and tracking, but CDC was again, initially, unresponsive.
While we waited for CDC to provide the data, which it eventually did, we asked all 50 states for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 prior to the halt of individual testing and counting in July. The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico.
In most states the percentages ranged from 83 to 98 percent NOT BEING H1N1 or influenza.
The Happy Holistic: This is just another example of a pattern of deception and outright propaganda by the CDC in conjunction with HHS to hype this so-called “Swine Flu” epidemic. While the government has spent $6.4 Billion on this vaccine and untold millions to push its acceptance, the FDA and FTC is harassing doctors such as Andrew Weil for promoting healthy alternatives. This amounts to a campaign to embolden the powers of the federal health bureaucracy and the bottom line of Big Pharma.
