"Spanish" Flu: 100-Year Anniversary

The so-called Spanish Flu killed between 50-100 million people 100 years ago. The circumstances surrounding this pandemic may not be what you think.

Well, it's flu season again.

Time to reminisce on the 100-year anniversary of the great Spanish Flu which killed so many people.

But what were the conditions/factors associated with this tragedy?

Kevin Barry of First Freedoms, Inc. has authored a 5-part series suggesting that this "flu" may have been a "bacterial vaccine experiment"; that the killer infection "was neither the flu nor Spanish in origin."

Leaving all political and religious considerations aside, it's certainly an interesting, if not convincing theory -- medically speaking.

It's funny to realize that this contagion "killed far more soldiers on all sides than machine guns or mustard gas or anything else typically associated with WWI."

The first cases were actually reported around Fort Riley, Kansas in 1918 -- not in Spain.

So why the name Spanish?

Spain was not involved in WWI; most of the countries that were involved censored their press. So consequently, the earliest press reports of people dying "in large numbers came from Spain," and thus the name, Spanish Flu.

But the condition which took so many lives was not flu or a virus -- "it was bacterial." Grimly, thousands of autopsies confirm this fact at a rate of between 93% - 98%.

In a nutshell, Barry asserts that a (3-dose) bacterial meningitis vaccine from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York was given to US military troops.

Dr. Carol Byerly commented on the vaccine's effects, saying that the toll on US troops was enormous; the bacteria "travelled like wildfire through the US military."

These contagious soldiers then spread the disease as they were sent into the European war theater; into generally poor sanitary conditions.

After the war, soldiers returned home, further "spreading the killer bacterial pneumonia worldwide." Additionally, the Rockefeller Institute sent "the antimeningococcic serum to England, France, Belgium, Italy and other countries," further exacerbating the disease's spread.

In the present, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s Children's Health Defense has shown that the "FDA admits that the government is recommending untested, unlicensed vaccines for pregnant women."

So everyone stay healthy.
