    Rumour has it the swine flu was purposely instigated by drug company to make money..

    I wouldn't be surprised as the HIV was given to black homosexuals rumour has it by Germans in the jungle under pretext of a experiment and gave them HIV which they took from the monkeys..to get rid of black homosexuals..not thinking that some were bisexual. Seem far fetched? I wouldn't be surprised. Look what Hitler did!

    More than likely not true since the response time to develop vaccines has been a multi-company effort and flu's come and go

    My Dear Sweet Friends,
    This is entirely possible.  The pharmaceutical companies art the most prolific drug pushers that there hast ever been.  Doctors art paid to suscribe pills, and many pills possess side affects that require more pills,  This is one of the most compelling reasons why marijuana shouldest be legalized.  This is the reason our church distribute, free of charge, marijuana.

    You have to be kidding. Evidentally you know nothing of the Pharma industry, and are looking to hurt these people.

    When the U.N. gives medicine to African countries for AIDS; how does the U.N. get the meds? The U.N. certainly doesn't manufacture anything. Our Drug companies donate billions of dollars of drugs to the U.N.. for distribution, free.

    Sounds like they really want to kill people and make money.

    Pharmaceutical companies did NOT cause swine flu. Rather, it is the fulfillment of an early American prophecy.  A politician once said that having an African-American as the President of the United States was as likely as having pigs that could fly.   Well, last November Barack Obama was elected to the oval office and a few months later swine flu!

    To be honest, this is one of those hard to answer questions. I don't have any factual evidence to offer here, but I will say this.

    I don't think that the pharmaceutical companies gave anyone the flu to make money. Much more likely is that this flu broke out and between drug companies seeing an opportunity and the media always being eager for a story, this entire pandemic got blown out of proportion.

    As of right now, the regular seasonal flu is still much more deadly, but more people are worried about swine flu because of the panic all the coverage has caused. The swine flu's symptoms  are almost identical to seasonal flu and more often than not people recover just fine with a little bed rest, fluids, and some cold medicine.

    In some research I did into this topic the Swine Flu vaccination that everyone was so panicky to go get is actually more dangerous then the Swine Flu itself. Many of the doctors giving the shots were reported on stating that wouldn't take the shot nor would their families. Traces of Mercury were said to be in the vaccination.

    I'd be more concerned with the fact that researchers have revived the virus responsible for the Spanish Flu to study it. If this virus is ever let loose (even by accident) we will have more dead bodies world wide than we know what to do with.
    Remember, the last bout we had with the Spanish Flu killed millions and there's no guarantee that Tamiflu or anything else that we have to treat influenza will work.
    As for pharmaceutical companies, that's not how they make their profits. Better to hook someone on high blood pressure or cholesterol medication for the rest of their life.
