H5N1 DNA in Flu Vaccine

Flu Mist a popular over the counter live flu vaccine has been found to contain two H5N1 DNA markers, these markers seem to have been sewn into the flu mist vaccine to ensure that H5N1 or another strain of Avian Flu goes pandemic. This is going to cause major problems before long, it is imperative that people are warned about flu mist.

FluMist, a nasal vaccine easily available at Wal-Mart and elsewhere, contains 3 live viruses. You shoot it up your nose and your immune system gets a chance to make antibodies to three live, weakened viruses while the manufacturer hopes against hope that one of these three actually causes a disease this year and there is actually some benefit to taking the stuff.

Of course, if you are immune compromised or go near someone who is, you will get sick or infect them with the virus and they can get the flu.
So can you, since the side effects of FluMist are, not surprisingly, the flu! But, even if they are not the right flu viruses this year, taking FluMist (recommended for children between 6 and 23 months although FluMist is not approved by the FDA for kids under 5 due to their immature immune systems), means that two of the FluMist viruses can lend the missing DNA segments to the bird flu virus which it is lacking in order to become a human pandemic.

The bird flu virus can easily pick up the two snippets of DNA that it needs and now, instead of shedding attenuated live FluMist viruses, you could be shedding live pandemic bird flu virus, courtesy of MedImmune. Of course, you are likely come down with the bird flu, too! Tamiflu, the much hyped and immensely profitable antiviral drug (which is making Donald Rumsfeld vast amounts of money), is, by the way, nearly useless against bird flu: the virus is already developing resistance to the drug. But Mr. Rumsfeld can rest secure knowing that the US government has already spent $2 Billion on Tamiflu and is fixing to buy at least another $1 Billion of the useless stuff. Of course, the dosage is not known for this ineffective drug.
