We have been telling people in authority and governments now for nearly 6-years that the vaccine strategy to defeat bird flu and its transference to humans is sheer madness, as bird flu viruses are constantly mutating. Therefore the new so-called bird flu vaccine that was announced recently and stockpiled for the great and the good, is a useless exercise. In this respect the new H6N1 virus that has infected a Taiwanese's women is just another example and this process will continue infinitum. You just cannot create a universal vaccine for bird flu and that is fact. Indeed the only way to stop this killer disease which Margaret Chan has said many times, is only a matter of time not when, is never to allow it to start in the first place. In this respect if we equate the numbers that died throughout the Spanish Flu of up to 100 million worldwide to the highly pathogen pandemic that will eventually emerge, it is estimated that between 500 million and 1 billion lives will be lost. Therefore we simply have to adopt the global strategy that the man who first discovered that the killer virus had jumped into humanity devised that worked and saved millions in Hong Kong in 1997 -
And to know the reasons why this strategy was suppressed by the giant pharmaceutical companies you should visit -

The only way to deal with the H7N9 flu virus is to genetically alter the said flu virus so that it less harmful to humansí however it is imperative it will only apoptically remove previously infectedí chickens & livestock then introduce into the birdí ducks and chickens within animal feed! It would be very prevalent to vaccinate all people with H7N9 vaccine because over the next ten years it will be a dangerous problemí its well worth the high cost! The law needs changing so live birds and dead birds are not carried on public transportí and the introduction of abattoirs is essential!
Note chickens must not be sold or given away with feathers oní this is one of the ways the dangerous plagues started in the seventeenth century because the flu virus is in bacteria living on the birds feathers as well as the in the lungs and faecal matter! andrew j langham ' Langham Science Research Derby UK'

It was GSK's mmr vaccine that Canada rejected in the 1990's that was suspect in the UK as causing autism. Safety issues had Canada not only reject it, but warn the UK about its dangers. Since GSK has wormed its way into wealthy circles, even having Rupert Murdoch's son James on its board. It was James who hired Brian Deer to destroy Dr Andrew Wakefield who had treated the MMR victims and warned the public. All GSK product should be suspect because of past practices. And the FDA approves anything, then later tells you how dangerous they are.
