Creating Waves of Awareness

Sorry for my absence, I was busy building two new web sites (not homeopathy related.) I've tried to keep current with news about the H1N1 flu because I'm supposed to give a talk on the subject at our September Study Group meeting. Here's two news items you may have missed if you weren't paying close attention:

First, the pharmaceutical companies making the anti-virals used in allopathic treatment of flu have been given legal protection. If they have so little confidence in their drugs, should we?

"The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently provided a shield against damage claims related to the use of the antiviral drugs oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza) in the current H1N1 influenza pandemic. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius signed a notice extending liability protection under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act. It was published in the Federal Register on Jun 19."

Second, obesity has been a major risk factor in the H1N1 flu:

"Doctors tracking the pandemic say they see a pattern in hospital reports from Glasgow to Melbourne and from Santiago to New York. People infected with the bug who have a body mass index greater than 40, deemed morbidly obese, suffer respiratory complications that are harder to treat and can be fatal."
