Is the H1N1 flu epidemic a conspiracy?

The information regarding the H1N1 pandemic is compelling. What do you think? There are theories that the H1N1 is a plot to wipe out 1/3 of the people for population control. The H1N1 shot contains a dead virus and the nasal mist contains a live virus and makes people that take the mist contagious and spreads the disease for over 2 weeks. What is the rush in getting this vaccine and a pandemic declared when the number of deaths to render one are not there? Do you think we will get to the point of forced vaccination? Nurses are being told who work in hospitals that if they do not get a flu shot, they will not be paid for time off if they get sick. So they are taking it against their will in fear of their employment. Public schools are pressuring parents that refuse to give permission for their child to have a shot and ask for an explanation to write in the child's folder. The H1N1 vaccine is experimental. Many officials, doctors and nurses say the vaccine may not be necessary, safe, or effective. The call for mass vaccination contradicts what health experts are saying. 71.3% of doctors are concerned that the vaccine has been inadequately tested. The pentagon says it is safe and effective, even though after administering it to US Troops they had severe reactions from pain to death. 90% of vaccines have antifreeze, and mercury in them. Does this concern any of you?

personally i am not a big believer in conspiracy theories but i do enjoy reporting on various conspiracy theories.however i do believe the old adage.where there is smoke there is fire.i tend to raise my eye brows and perk up my ears when i see or hear intresting stories about conspiracies.this days i am hearing all about h1n1 swineflu and the swineflu vaccine shot, iposted wth headlines thruoghout the summer.i would like to think that i am up to speed on the whole h1n1 swineflue issue.but there is still one stone left unturned .the swineflu conspiracy ,specially the swineflu vaccine conspiracy .

I don't have any fear whatsoever about it. To think it will kill 1/3 of our population is ridiculous. It isn't doing that and almost certainly can't even work that way. I think people in public service industries are encouraged to get the vaccines because of their high rate of exposure to potentially infected contacts. Its a good idea...

Well for as long as there is no concrete evidence to prove your point I would consider it a theory and not a fact. Our company had offered us a flus hot before all this AH1N1 started to spread. I initially refused the offer since I felt no problem with my health before but then I decided later on to have the shot since I did have a bout of mild colds/flu. When I have myself shot with it my immune system did get boosted since I got the flu shot. I never had any signs of flu or even colds or coughs that came upon me for the last six months or more. Even when there's somebody in the office that catches colds it seems I am not affected by it at all. Usually when I haven't had my flu shot when there's someone that got sick I usually catch it within the week or so but in my case right now I have not been infected by it and hopefully this last till the end of the year. I think the flu shot is a necessary thing in this times when the virus are getting tougher by the day. The flu shots that are being sold are just one way to prevent the spread of the virus and whether they are the ones that spread this or not remains a question or a theory.

I find it difficult to swallow everything I read hook, line and sinker. What is obvious is that AH1N1 is real and is a cause for concern. But unlike the dreaded aids, it can be treated and many have survived after receiving treatments. Fortunately the strain that hit our country is mild compared to the rest of the world. With regards to taking the vaccine, it's a person's judgment call if he allows himself to take the vaccine or take the risk of getting the disease. To many including myself, it is a matter of accepting lesser evil. There are published reports of people getting worse after having the vaccine but there are few cases and it may have different accompaying causes. In the event of a second wave of AH1N1 vicious and deadly attack, I stand more chances of surviving than without any protection at all.

I just had H1N1...and it's really not that bad so long as you take care of yourself. You feel bad, take some medicine, rest for a bit, and you're good. it is, however, highly contagious...so for that reason alone I would contend that is is an epidemic rather than a conspiracy. A bad one though? Hell, no.

I think H1N1 epidemic is real, but it has more importance than it should have. About the vaccine, it isn´t very important and isn´t very safe.
