Only 18 confirmed US flu deaths in 2001. What?!

Only 18 confirmed US flu deaths in 2001. What?!

It’s always interesting when official agencies’ statistics come back to bite them. Hard.

In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (BMJ online) published a shocking report by Peter Dosh, which created tremors through the halls of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), where “the experts” used to tell the press that 36,000 people in the US die every year from the flu.

Here is a quote from Doshi’s report:

“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”

You might want to chew on that sentence for a while.

You see, the CDC has created one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. Why do they do this? Because they disingenuously assume that the pneumonia deaths are complications stemming from the flu.

This is an absurd assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes.

But even worse, in all the 2001 flu and pneumonia deaths, only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus.

Therefore, the CDC could not say, with assurance, that more than 18 people died of influenza in 2001. Not 36,000 deaths, the PR statistic. 18 deaths.

Doshi continued his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).” These figures refer to flu separated out from pneumonia.

This death toll is obviously far lower than the parroted 36,000 figure. But it would drop much lower, if you added the obvious need to confirm the presence of a flu virus in those cases.

People say, “But how could this be? How could this be?”

People in official positions lie. That’s how. They lie, and then they lie again. They think they’re immune from scrutiny and consequences.

People say, “There must be a mistake here. A confusion. They wouldn’t tell a lie that big.”

There’s no mistake, no confusion. They do tell lies that big.

Why? For many reasons. For example, in this case, to sell flu vaccines. I could cite a number of reasons, but I want to stay focused on the lie itself.

It’s instructive. Look at the lie, look at the truth. Back and forth, back and forth. The false reality-egg cracks. Hear it?

    Wow…only 23 people a year die from lightening strikes in the U.S. That’s more than the number who die from flu. Clearly, we need an anti-lightning vaccine.

    I just wanted to repeat that so it’s clear. Thanks, Jon.

    Checking stats for 2001:
    > 18 deaths from flu

    >653 deaths from flu shot (officially),

    >You are 37 times more likely to die from the shot than the flu.

    BUT WAIT!!

    The AMA tells us that only 1.5% adverse reactions are reported, so the actual number would be more like 43,533 deaths from flu shot. (653 = 1.5%x; 653/.015 = 43,533)

    > 18 deaths from flu vs. 43,533 deaths from flu shot

    You are 2,418.5 times more likely to DIE from a flu shot than the flu.

    Please tell me the math is wrong!!
    _________________________________
    Details of how I got the 653 deaths:

    At medalerts.org (link below), “Item 3. Select Vaccine Information,” I clicked on ten flu vaccines, from FLU H1N1 through H5N1 Pandemic

    THEN “4. Select Event Characteristics”, I clicked on Death.

    THEN “6. Select Dates,” I entered 2001.

      Your math is wrong. The 1.5% adverse reactions include everything from the sniffles to death. In any case you can’t divide the reported death by the fraction of adverse reactions. That makes no sense.

    Any chance you could provide links to your data? Would really help when sharing this info.

    It’s entirely plausible that at least part of that lie came from reasonable assumptions about which cases involved influenza, but did not test positive. Not the whole 36,000…but part of it.
