bird flu

The Greatness of a nation and its moral progress shows in the way it treats its animals - Ghandi

Do you know that 'bird flu' was discovered in Vietnam 9 years ago?

Do you know that so far only 113 people in the whole
have died through their association with infected birds?

Do you know that EVERY DAY in the U.S. ALONE, more than 1,400 Americans die from Heart Disease?

Do you know that it was the Americans who alerted us to the efficacy of the human antiviral TAMIFLU as a preventative.

Do you know that TAMIFLU barely alleviates some symptoms of the common flu?

Do you know that its efficacy against the common flu is questioned by a great
part of the scientific community?

Do you know that against a SUPPOSED mutant virus such as H5N1, TAMIFLU barely alleviates the illness?

Do you know who markets TAMIFLU?
Do you know who bought the patent for TAMIFLU from ROCHE LABORATORIES in 1996?
Do you know who was the then president of GILEAD SCIENCES INC. and remains a major shareholder to this day?
  • Answer: DONALD RUMSFELD, the present Secretary of Defence of the USA.
Do you know that the base of TAMIFLU is crushed aniseed?

Do you know who controls 90% of the world's production of this tree?

  • Answer: ROCHE.
Do you know that sales of TAMIFLU were over $254 million in 2004 and more than $1000 million in 2005?

Do you know how many more millions ROCHE can earn in the coming months
if the business of fear continues?

So the summary of the story is as follows:
  • Bush's friends decide that the medicine TAMIFLU is the solution for a pandemic that has not yet occurred and that has caused a hundred deaths worldwide in 9 years. This medicine doesn't so much as cure the common flu.
  • In normal conditions the virus does not affect humans.
  • Rumsfeld sold the patent for TAMIFLU to ROCHE for which they paid him a fortune.
  • Roche acquires 90% of the global production of crushed aniseed, the base for the antivirus.
  • The governments of the entire world threaten a pandemic and then buy industrial quantities of the product from Roche.
  • So we end up paying for medicine while Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush do the business.
