The widely proclaimed threat of influenza H5N1 epidemics is illusory. This imagined danger have been confirmed neither by current observation nor by entire plethora of medical knowledge.
I am frightfully shame for The World Health Organization which warns that H5N1 is on the verge of mutating into a super-contagious pandemic form that will able visit billion homes within next years.
I am frightfully shame for the Bush administration which spends billions of our money to buy vaccine that they hope will be effective against the imagined ghost, i.e. this hypothetical mutant.
We don't understand why they do this, but should we trust them?
My position is based on scientific theses published for instance in the book entitled ?Biological weapon. A Terrible Reality? Profound Delusion? Skillful Swindling?? Vantage Press, New York, 2006
