Some scientists believe the Swine flu H1N1 virus could have been circulating in humans long before it reached La Gloria Mexico. H1N1 virus was known to have been in pigs on hog farms in California, and actually originated on a California-based pig farm, although the huge corporate farm in question was jointly owned by American and Mexican partners.
The new H1N1 strain’s genetic ancestry also has ties to a pig farm in North Carolina where in 1998; scientists discovered that pig, bird and human viruses had combined in pigs to form a new strain of swine flu. H1N1 virus strain in the United States has been used as the latest emotionally-charged platform in opposition to Mexican immigration. La Gloria’s Mexico residents believe they were sickened by the factory commercial pig farms in the area, which are polluting their air and water with massive lagoons of pig waste.
The pork industry retorts by wanting a closer scrutiny of pigs raised in the residents’ backyards, which may not have been vaccinated for Swine Flu as a preventative measure. The origin of this virus being La Gloria is strongly in doubt so many sources are saying they just don’t know rather than saying it likely came from the USA. Gleaning the news there is no mention at all about where the pigs that were being raised in La Gloria Mexico came from or where the original swine came from, which these herds directly descended from.
The failure to explore or allow full common disclosure of this information, given the circumstances smacks of conspiracy. The reasonable person can not help but think of the facts. Smithfield Foods a USA based corporation out of Virginia has its dependent company raise swine on a hog farm in the secluded mountainous region of Mexico with the blessings of the Mexican government. The Mexican government still has not provided details about its tests on humans and pigs. This looks like a clear case of “follow the money”, Smithfield Foods has the money, the Mexican government needs money, The USA government encourages overseas outsourcing, Smithfield Foods needs cheap labor, and the Mexican government provides cheap labor, bang another NFTA nightmare. Smithfield Foods, the nation’s largest hog producer and pork processor is a Corporate Hog Baron on steroids and being the dominate hand of the pork industry has the clout of the sow pork lobby to suckle the pork barrel politics of Washington DC, they are able to do just about whatever they want.
There is no doubt that the boar’s share of the pork meat produced in La Gloria Mexico is bound for markets in the USA, and Mexico is a runt Third World piglet of corporate lactating greed. The message seems to be that Mexican lives don’t matter, even though the H1N1 virus is capable of charging out to gore humans anywhere in the world as an equal opportunity pathogenic killer.
“At this point, learning the source won’t change how the world must respond to this epidemic”, said Dr. Sylvie Briand of the World Health Organization’s global influenza program in Switzerland. “It’s possible the virus has mutated. In autumn the mutated form could spread to the northern hemisphere and back to Germany,” Hacker told a news conference in Berlin. Labs capable of testing for the H1N1 Swine Flu strain are focused on helping sick people not finding scientific evidence pointing to the starting place of the pandemic, which has now sickened thousands of people around the world and no one really knows how many H1N1 virus has killed.
The United States has ramped up preparations for a possible swine flu epidemic. Canada has confirmed cases of Swine Flu as researchers work to determine how contagious the virus could be. Humans have built the transport system perfect for viruses. Swine flu is now crisscrossing globe in refrigerated trucks which has certainly helped the possible transmission of the virus because it is no longer confined to any specific area, region, or even country.
The U.S. Agriculture Department reported 584.14 million lbs of pork in storage, down from 612.3 million in April, but up from 579.4 million a year ago. What they are not saying is very scary and that is, that whenever all this frozen pork is released to the market the H1N1 virus will be tagging along for the ride, although the government and the corporations remain mute on the subject of viral transmission of H1N1 virus from the carcasses, meat and meat by products of pigs to living human hosts. This is likely the reason no studies or research has been done on the infectious potential of pork meat.
Pigs are often used by the government and corporations for drug and medical trials because the pig has many characteristics in common with humans, in fact pig organs have been transplanted into humans for medical purposes. It only stands to reason that transmission of viruses between the 2 species is more than possible, it is reality. Therefore the danger that swine meat of carcasses poses for potential transmission of decease which includes viruses is essentially the same as that posed by human cadavers, neither is fit for live human consumption being biohazards. Adding insult to injury although the transport of “live” pigs, swine, hogs has been reduced it has by no means been curtailed.
Doctors have confirmed cases of the H1N1 Swine Flu virus in 20 countries, now, for the first time, sick farms worker have infected pigs, per the World Health Organization. H1N1 virus transported in planes from country to country inside farm workers from Mexico has reached hog farms in Canada and re-infected herds of pigs in Alberta Canada this past April. The H1N1 Swine Flu pathogen has gone through a mutation into its current form. The result of the mutation, humans have no protection from the virus. This is why governments worldwide are concerned about the pandemic, the first pandemic in 41 years.
For people with underlying health conditions, there is a higher risk of complications or even death if they get the swine flu. If an outbreak of H1N1 Swine Flu occurs and your baby has a lung condition, your baby may be more likely to have serious complications or even die. People who suffer from asthma have a much higher likelihood of developing severe complications than others.
Almost 41% of Swine Flu hospital patients in New York City suffered from asthma. Within the past weeks, seven deaths relating to swine flu were reported in New York. Of seven fatalities, six of the individuals had asthma. The H1N1 virus is definitely taking the path of least resistance it targets helpless defenseless health compromised members of the human population subsequently these are the ones that often die, not being able to stand the test of actively fighting the virus. However understand that we are the facilitators and defender of the Swine Flu H1N1virus by default or indirect intention. Man creates the correct circumstances for the H1N1 virus’ reproduction and distribution, hog farms slaughter houses static and active refrigeration locations and vessels of transport for pork based food and manufacturing purposes.
If things continue as they have corporations and governments will continue to do what they have always done, provide products based on human demand and totally disregard the health and mortality consequences. H1N1 virus will reciprocate by doing what it genetically programmed to do, kill any living organisms it can invade that has no defense or a very poor one for whatever reason. The Swine Flu virus will do what it did in 1918 kill the weak the sick, the very young, the very old, pregnant females, and anyone that does not have the proper or enough antibodies to fight it. H1N1 virus is on the verge of culling us, we know it lives and hides in pigs, so logically it is better to cull them (pigs) and thereby control the virus.
If not controlled effectively, the virus free will to kill as it chooses like it is doing now! There will be no efforts to commemorate the thousands of “fallen” that are already been, and will be victims of the intentional commerce in H1N1 viral infected pork flesh. There will be no laser lights marking the spot of death, no shiny engraved stone monuments, or even mass memorials for those who died or will die because of pork industry corporate greed and government complicity. There will be only the usual familiar semi celebrity corporate roasts to commend a job well done, for the executives, pork industry lobbyist, and federal regulation cronies. Of course all followed by the great news of another round of golden parachutes as financial rewards for dirty deeds done while the consumer sleeps!
