The Flesh of Slaughtered Pigs Caused WW1 Flu Pandemic

pig flesh caused the flu pandemic of WW1 and causes
cancer, heart disease, food poisoning, trichinosis,
and other diseases while violating the religions of

Vivisectors Admit that Flu Epidemic in WW1 was caused by pig flesh

WASHINGTON (AP) - The 1918 influenza virus that killed more than 20
million people worldwide originated from American pigs and is unlike
any other known flu bug, say researchers. They warn that it could
strike again.

Using lung tissue taken at autopsy 79 years ago from an Army private
killed by the flu, scientists at the Armed Forces Institute of
Pathology made a genetic analysis of the virus and concluded it is
unique, though closely related to the ''swine'' flu.

''This is the first time that anyone has gotten a look at this virus
which killed millions of people in one year, making it the worst
infectious disease episode ever,'' said Dr. Jeffery K. Taubenberger,
leader of the Armed Forces Institute team. ''It does not match any
virus that has been found since.''

Although the disease that caused the worldwide epidemic was called
''Spanish flu,'' the virus apparently is a mutation that evolved in
American pigs and was spread around the globe by U.S. troops mobilized
for World War I, said Taubenberger.

The Army private whose tissue was analyzed contracted the flu at Fort
Jackson, S.C. For that reason, Taubenberger and his colleagues suggest
in the journal Science that the virus be known as Influenza A/South
Carolina.

Science is publishing the study today.

Army doctors in 1918 conducted autopsies on some of the 43,000
servicemen killed by the flu and preserved some specimens in
formaldehyde and wax.

Taubenberger said his team sorted through 30 specimens before finding
enough virus in the private's lung tissue to partially sequence the
genes for hemagglutinin and neuraminidase, two key proteins in flu
virus.

''The hemagglutinin gene matches closest to swine influenza viruses,
showing that this virus came into humans from pigs,'' said
Taubenberger.

The finding supports a widespread theory that flu viruses from swine
are the most virulent for humans.

Most experts believe that flu viruses reside harmlessly in birds, where
they are genetically stable. Occasionally, a virus from birds will
infect pigs. The swine immune system attacks the virus, forcing it to
change genetically to survive. The result is a new virus. When this new
bug is spread to humans, it can be devastating, said Taubenberger.

Two other flu viruses spread all over the world since 1918 - Asian flu
in 1957 and the Hong Kong flu in 1968 - and both mutated in pigs.

Vivisectors Admit that Flu Epidemic in WW1 was caused by pig flesh

The flesh of murdered pigs is forbidden to observers of Islam, of
Judaism,
of Hinduism, Buddhism, to Sikhs, to Christians following the example of
Christ.

Pigs eat the waste of other animals when nothing else is available.

Pigs are a cause of trichinosis. Their cadaver flesh must be cooked
at high temperatures to kill the trichinella worm.

Pig flesh is correlated to heart disease, stroke, cancer, kidney
disease,
arthritis, etc.

Smithfield is perhaps the biggest of the many American factory
farmers of pigs.

The concentration of pig waste from factory farms in NC, NJ, MD, VA
has caused what was called in the bible a 'red tide', otherwise known
as pfiesteria. Nature creates special organisms to process the
concentrations of feces.

of NPR, the CBC, BBC, American neocon owned media and pharmaceutically
dominated newspapers continue to promote Roche's toxic tamiflu, in which Donald
Rumsfeld is illegally and heavily invested.

"Although the disease that caused the worldwide epidemic was called

Actually the evil people in the U.S. military intentionally sent the troops abroad with the 'swine flu' to spread the disease. More on this and why is in the book _Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism, and Toxic Warfare_ by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz.

pig flesh 08.Aug.2006 11:08

mark my words

this article is utter hogwash because the facts dont add up
jesus was a jew therefore wouldnt eat pork
who says eating pork causes cancer? eating any meat is said to cause cancer.
so smithfield produces pfeisteria(is this a misspelling of hysteria???)
this is just another excuse for amreica to claim graetness what else have they ever done for the world??? apart from invading countries with nothing to do with them,imparting their way of thinking on the civilized world, mispelling all sorts of words,electing a congenital idiot into the white house twice (for those of you who dont know buggerall about the world i mean george wanker bush the second
God help the rest of the world
