Setting the people up to die: A conspiracy of silence about swine flu natural remedies ^ | Wednesday, August 26, 2009 | Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Posted on 08/27/2009 1:12:46 PM PDT by Lucky9teen

(NaturalNews) It's emblazoned across the front page of USA Today, just underneath a subhead declaring Michael Jackson was, indeed, killed by a drug overdose: "Flu could infect half of USA." The article goes on to describe the predicted number of deaths expected in the U.S. (30,000 - 90,000 Americans) as well as the actions being taken by the government to protect Americans from the coming swine flu pandemic.

That advice reads sort of like a comic book of health care advice for kindergarteners: Wash your hands, cover your mouth if you cough and let "the grownups" take care of the rest by injecting you with a vaccine. Curiously absent from all the health advice being handed out on the swine flu by the White House, the CDC, the WHO and even the FDA is any mention of Vitamin D or other natural remedies that offer enormous protections from influenza infections.

The absence of this information from virtually all the advice being handed out to the American public is increasingly suspicious. If a pandemic flu is, indeed, threatening to infect half the U.S. population, and if most of the population is deficient in a nutrient known to strongly prevent influenza infections, wouldn't it make good sense to make a few announcements encouraging Americans to raise their vitamin D levels throughout the coming winter?

It is a well-known medical fact, of course, that influenza always gets worse during the winter months North of the equator and the summer months South of the equator (which are really called their "winter" months). This is because as sunlight hours lessen during the winter, the people living there become vitamin D deficient and are susceptible to influenza infections of all kinds.

The information resources backing this are easy to find. Even our own website reveals a large amount of information on natural defenses against influenza (, of course, offers a wealth of articles on Vitamin D (

In the realm of peer-reviewed medical literature, searching Google Scholar for "influenza" and "vitamin D" returns tens of thousands of results ( In particular, one study appearing in these search results is entitled Epidemic influenza and vitamin D. It was published in 2006 in the journal Epidemiology and Infection (2006, 134:6:1129-1140 Cambridge University Press) and its abstract reads as follows:

In 1981, R. Edgar Hope-Simpson proposed that a 'seasonal stimulus' intimately associated with solar radiation explained the remarkable seasonality of epidemic influenza. Solar radiation triggers robust seasonal vitamin D production in the skin; vitamin D deficiency is common in the winter, and activated vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D, a steroid hormone, has profound effects on human immunity. 1,25(OH)2D acts as an immune system modulator, preventing excessive expression of inflammatory cytokines and increasing the 'oxidative burst' potential of macrophages. Perhaps most importantly, it dramatically stimulates the expression of potent anti-microbial peptides, which exist in neutrophils, monocytes, natural killer cells, and in epithelial cells lining the respiratory tract where they play a major role in protecting the lung from infection. Volunteers inoculated with live attenuated influenza virus are more likely to develop fever and serological evidence of an immune response in the winter. Vitamin D deficiency predisposes children to respiratory infections. Ultraviolet radiation (either from artificial sources or from sunlight) reduces the incidence of viral respiratory infections, as does cod liver oil (which contains vitamin D). An interventional study showed that vitamin D reduces the incidence of respiratory infections in children. We conclude that vitamin D, or lack of it, may be Hope-Simpson's 'seasonal stimulus'.


Why the silence? Vitamin D is perhaps the single most powerful nutrient in the known universe for preventing influenza, and yet the Obama White House won't dare utter a word about it to the American people, even in the face of a potentially devastating global pandemic that could be largely halted by vitamin D.

It begs the question: Why the silence?

There are really only three possible explanations for why the White House and U.S. health authorities would refuse to tell the public about vitamin D as a smart defense against the influenza pandemic:

Reason #1) They don't know about vitamin D. This, of course, is impossible. The medical literature is saturated with respectable studies demonstrating the anti-viral and immune modulating effects of vitamin D. For someone in the field of infectious disease to be unaware of vitamin D's protective benefits would be downright laughable. It would be like a car mechanic not knowing what a fuel filter was.

Reason #2) They do know about vitamin D, and they want to tell people, but they don't know how or don't have the money. This explanation, too, is ridiculous. Telling the people the truth about vitamin D is as simple (and as free) as just calling a White House press conference, inviting a vitamin D expert like Dr. Michael Holick to say a few words, and putting the message out to the mainstream media. In 24 hours, all the newspaper headlines across the country could print headlines like, "White House urges Americans to boost vitamin D before swine flu strikes." The whole nation could be properly informed about vitamin D in less than 72 hours.

But that will never happen. And why? Because of reason #3...

Reason #3) They know about vitamin D but they are intentionally withholding information from the American people In essence, they want to keep the American people nutritionally illiterate so that they remain "victims" in the coming influenza crisis. Because of who's involved in this (the White House, FDA, CDC, WHO and many others), it cannot be called anything other than a conspiracy of silence about influenza and vitamin D.

What could be the purpose behind such a conspiracy of silence? Clearly its only purpose is to maximize profits to the drug companies and / or maximize the number of deaths that occur when the swine flu strikes North America this coming winter.

But why, you might ask, would these so-called authorities wish to see more Americans die?

Health care reform via a viral pandemic To answer that, just look at who is most likely to die from swine flu infections: The obese... the people who, generally speaking, are placing the greatest financial burden on the government-funded health care system. The coming swine flu pandemic has the potential to do what no politician could ever get away with: Slash health care spending virtually overnight by simply killing off those who burden the system the most.

Call it Health Care Darwinism if you like. Survival of the fittest married with an evil plot. Let the most costly health care consumers die in a (planned?) pandemic, and suddenly your nation is pulled back from the brink of total financial collapse.

The White House just revised its budget numbers this week, by the way. Government deficit spending for this year is up over 300 percent from last year, reaching an eye-popping, mind-boggling $1.9 trillion in new debt in just a single year! This runaway debt spending is, by any honest calculation, simply unsustainable. It will destroy America's future, leaving the nation penniless. To save America, something drastic must be done. Something as drastic as, say, killing off those who place the greatest cost burdens on the U.S. health care system (which represents roughly twenty percent of all U.S. government spending).

So how do you really cut costs in America? Recognize that roughly one-fifth of U.S. government spending goes to support the "disease industry." And the vast majority of that money is spent taking care of chronically ill individuals who are typically obese and nutrient deficient. Releasing a bio-engineered influenza virus into the wild is a sure way to cut health care spending in the long run by killing those who place the highest burdens on the health care system. While it costs a fortune to take care of a chronically ill patient for two decades, it costs a mere pittance to see them die in a hospital emergency room while they succumb to H1N1 influenza.

Swine flu, it might be said from a cold-hearted evil government point of view, is a cost-effective and quick way to slash health care spending without needing to take any responsibility for making such cuts yourself. Let the virus do the dirty work, killing off the most vulnerable in society and leaving more money behind for Big Government to get even bigger. Think governments couldn't do this? Then you don't know governments well enough.

Now, in defense of the Obama administration, I very much doubt that President Barack Obama himself would be capable of masterminding such an evil plot to kill off the American people in a planned influenza pandemic. This is the kind of thing that usually takes place behind the scenes, where powerful men (far more powerful than Obama) meet in dark places to plan and plot the future of the world. If it is in their interests to see the population suffer through a pandemic, they will make sure one appears at the appropriate time.

It could also be a joint arrangement between powerful corporations and Big Government. The corporate drug companies want to make money off the vaccine sales. The government wants to save money by killing off the top recipients of expensive health care services (who also wouldn't burden Medicare down the road, either). By working together, they can both get what they want. One pandemic serves both masters, and it's all funded by taxpayer dollars to boot!

This is still a theory, not proof I can't prove that such a plot is actually under way, by the way. When discussing conspiracy theories, I'm always careful to point out that I have no specific proof that such a nefarious plot actually exists. There is, however, quite a lot of supporting circumstantial evidence that should raise the eyebrows of anyone paying attention. For example, there is this training brochure that recently surfaced ( which describes procedures for "conducting morgue operations" and "activating fatality management operations."

This same document also describes training points that cover:

• Breakdown of public services • Medical supplies shortages • Unwillingness to follow government orders

... among other fascinating things. The conference this advertises was held August 19 - 20 in Washington D.C. by a company called New-Fields that holds, among other things, an "Iraq Aviation & Defense Summit" ( featuring senior U.S. military personnel and touting "one to one meetings with Iraqi officials."

This isn't the first time a company with ties to the U.S. military has been found to be involved in the swine flu pandemic. My previous article on NaturalNews exposed the DynCorp / NIH patent link, revealing that a key influenza vaccine patent was jointly owned by the National Institutes of Health and a high-level private U.S. military contractor named DynCorp. You can read that article here:

So what does it all mean? Like a lot of things, it just depends what you choose to believe.

I don't know if I believe the evil, nefarious conspiracy theory described as a possibility in this article. But neither do I trust my government (and I sure don't trust public health officials). So I'm doing exactly what I recommend everybody else do: Take charge of your own swine flu defenses by boosting your nutrition and sunlight exposure. Store some food, water and other basic preparedness supplies just in case. Be prepared to survive and thrive during the coming pandemic, regardless of what happens around you.

Just because everybody else is planning on becoming a victim of circumstance doesn't mean you have to. With a little basic planning and some medical common sense, you can see yourself through this pandemic with ease. No sweat.

Read my pandemic preparedness report (if you haven't already) to learn what top five anti-viral products I currently recommend for boosting your defenses against the swine flu:

It's a report that could literally help save your life.

I would like to see some good experimental data regarding vitamin D and influenza.

There have been some small studies that were interesting and a lot of anecdotal information but we need to see a good double blinded study with a large population.

So what are they suggesting people do in this article to prevent influenza? What sort of vitamin D suppliment are they encouraging?

IMO, if you know anyone who still says they are going to accept and take the Swine Flu vaccination? They are not awake yet and do not understand this government and what it is capable of.

My daughter has low vitamin D due to anti-seizure medication stripping it out of her. Because of that, I started doing research into vitamin D.

I decided that all of my family would go on vitamin D supplements after I read information on it. My daughter is on the highest amount.

We’ll see if it helps any this year.

Two groups of crazies that you can expect to hear from in the discussion of any medical issue:

1) Democrats who want your money and to rule your life.

2) “Natural Medicine” Flakes who just want your money.

We are debating whether or not to get it. My 12 year old daughters almost died of respiratory virs (RSV) when they were infants.

One of them has had bad asthma ever since then. She was doing okay for years, and then this past year she just plummetted. She got 4 colds, and each one ended up going to her lungs and she had terrible breathing problems for 2/3 weeks each time.

She is now taking vitamins (D & C), going to start taking a nasal spray and allergy medication regularly, plus her usual asthma medication.

I'm unfamiliar with this particular site but will do look-see (thanks for posting!), but today alone I received three pieces of correspondence regarding vitamin D and swine flu. Here's another article from a site I visit often: Dr. Mercola

Here is a great little book on the 1918 flu out break and natural herbs that can be effective today.

As a bonus, the cover photo is by yours truly!

Beck says that he expects a major “event” to happen. This is probably it. Swine Flu=Gummit to the rescue!

It couldn’t hurt.

So many of our youngsters spend all their time indoors nowadays and do not get enough natural Vitamin D.

Also, our teenage girls are always dieting and dropping Vit. D fortified milk from their daily intake.

Senior citizens are another group who don’t get enough D.

It’s a cheap alternative to the costs of getting the flu.

The stupid part is
for vitamin D the pills
do almost nothing.

All you have to do
is walk in the sun a bit
and your skin makes it.

How to Avoid The H1N1 Swine Flu With Vitamins And Supplements
By mrasey

eHow Community Member

Article Rating: (3 Ratings) Vitamins are actually really effective at treating the flu, including the swine flu.With California declaring a state of emergency due to the recent swine flu outbreak and the CDC announcing the first US deaths due to the H1N1 flu—also known as the swine flu—now is the time to pay extra attention to your health. A strong immune system can prevent the swine flu and you can strengthen your immune system by taking the following vitamins and supplements.

Difficulty: Moderately EasyInstructions
Step 1 Take Vitamin D which improves immunity to H1N1 flu by increasing production of antimicrobial agents in the body. These antimicrobials can fight swine flu and other types of influenza. It’s no coincidence that flu season coincides with the lowest annual levels of Vitamin D. To ramp up your immune system, take 2000-5000 mg a day of Vitamin D. The best form of Vitamin D to use is D3.

Step 2 Take Vitamin C as it not only boosts levels of infection fighting white blood cells, but it also increases the number of interferon antibodies which work to keep the swine flu from even entering cells. Aim for 200 mg ingested over the course of day either in food or supplements.

Step 3Take Vitamin E which fosters production of natural killer cells that seek out and destroy swine flu germs. It’s hard to eat enough food to reach therapeutic levels of Vitamin E, so consider a supplemental dose between 100-400 mg.

Step 4 Eat foods rich in Vitamin A to boost immune response, however, because high levels can be toxic, avoid supplements and eat your carrots. Be especially careful of Vitamin A intake if you are pregnant as high levels can hurt a fetus.

Step 5 Eat foods rich in bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids fill up cell receptor sites so H1N1 flu germs can’t get into your cells and cause infection. Bioflavonoids are found in white and green teas, wine, dark chocolate, peppers, garlic, blueberries, and citrus fruits. For best results, combine with foods rich in vitamin C and calcium.

Step 6Take a zinc supplement. Zinc doesn’t just increase immune response, it makes it fight the swine flu more aggressively. Supplement with 15 to 25 mg a day and don’t go over 75 mg as that can actually weaken your immune system.

Is it just my imagination or have we been in this "pandemic" since the beginning of the year? Is it just my imagination or have we heard about every "victim" (both domestic and foreign) contracting this disease? Is it just my imagination or are the Obsolete Media counting each unfortunate who has died with the same fervor they reported each U.S. military death (both combat and non-combat related) in Iraq? Is it my imagination or is this feeling I have real that the libs are going to promote this "pandemic" in order to get KennedyCare passed?
