WHAT IS THE REAL STORY ON BIRD FLU?
AIDS, Legionnaires disease, Ebola virus, West Nile River Virus, SARS and now Avian Influenza...
Of all of these hyped diseases only AIDS has caused significant deaths and yet most of these are in third world countries where many people suffer from malnourishment, poverty and poor hygiene.
What are the odds that there is going to be an Avian Flu Pandemic?
To answer that question let's have a quick look at SARS.
If you remember back a few years we were told that SARS was going to wipe out millions. So how many actually have died from SARS?
Only 774 deaths from SARS world wide!
And one source (A Wise Traditions journal of the Weston A Price Foundation) said that none of the Canadians actually had the virus in their body. This article suggested that in fact pollution was the cause of the illness and that in fact symptoms of a viral infection and pollution/pesticide poisoning were almost identical. So before I get side tracked onto pollution being a major cause of disease let's have a look at deaths so far from Avian Influenza
So far 206 deaths from Avian Influenza world wide!
Maybe it's just early days? But I wonder?
So what is really causing the chickens to get sick and die?
If you have ever seen the conditions under which factory farmed chickens are housed and fed you will clearly understand why they get sick. Any animal - any human being housed under those deplorable conditions would also get sick and die. They get no daylight or fresh air. They never get a chance to flap their wings or to go for a walk over green pastures. They never get any decent food that a chicken in the wild would eat and they are crowded together in tiny cages. In short they are severely stressed both physically and emotionally. As a result new strains of influenza develop which may be passed onto humans. It should be obvious to most people that it is the conditions which create the disease and if we want to remove the threat of the avian virus then we need to change the conditions.
So what can we do for the chickens?
Probably not a lot for the current chickens in distress but by ensuring that in future we only buy chickens and eggs that have come from pasture fed birds that are humanly raised we take our business away from the factory farmers.
And what can we do for ourselves and others?
a lifestyle for ourselves which is conducive to good health would be a
