You, the obviously avid reader of Blinkinblogs, may have noticed several debates on Blinkinblogs regarding the Swine Flu (N1H1) vaccine and the potential for all sorts of conspiracy theories etc. I am going to put one thing to rest right now on BB for all future discussions on this topic: At no point has anyone that has ever written for Blinkinblogs said that Vaccines are a bad thing. In fact, all of us think they are a good thing, when done correctly etc. Caravaggio, ScanJack, and GlazedNConfused and I have batted each other about the cerebral ring several times on this topic and during those mental bouts you the reader may have gathered the idea that some of those contenders do not believe in Vaccines or believe in them no matter what. Let me assure you of something – I know all of our writers personally and have had many offline discussions about this topic and can say with total confidence that all of us believe in Vaccines. The issue that truly exists, and what we really debate, are the little things.
So now we are past that what is the real debate? Some people are focussing on whether vaccines are good or not (Caravaggio falls into this category) and frankly his arguments are right. ScanJack and I both agree with him. They can be. GlazedNConfused was in the camp of better safe that sorry – also a decent perspective. What ScanJack was talking about, and what I also am a bit weirded out by is as follows, and frankly if we could get an answer on any of these that would be great.
- Several Scientists who specialize in microbiology, pathogens etc have said that the Swine Flu they looked at was not a natural pathogen – meaning? It was man made.
- Vaccines are Great! Why are there THREE versions of the swine flu vaccine, of which one is not available to the public? (German Government admitted that)
- Why was $8 Billion spent on the Swine Flu vaccine for production before the outbreak? (Again, documented and admitted to)
- Why was it that not a single PIG on the farm that all of this supposedly originated from actually had the swine flu? (WHO covered this)
- If the Thimerosal and Squalene found in the Swine Flu Vaccination is both negligible and servers no purpose then why were they added?
- How was this Outbreak different that the 1976 outbreak?
- Why is that those exposed in that generation were not affected despite the worry that the elderly and youngest of the population would be affected? In other words, those elderly seemed to have already built an immunity.
- Why is it more people died last year from Influenza than N1H1 when N1H1 was supposed to be “more lethal”?
- Ask yourself the following question on stuff you hear and read about the following: Cui Bono – Latin for “Who Benefits”.
I’d ask ab out the media’s involvement but really, we know the answer. Doom and Gloom sells papers.
So in closing – Vaccines are good. The rest of this crap – not bad per say – but odd that nobody will answer those questions.
