The following items show another set of reasons why our health-care system is "broken", though not as you typically hear from the MSM or the politicians.
Consider this typical Alarmist news headline:
H1N1 has killed 3,900 Americans, CDC says
Yaaaaaa!!!! The Sky Is Falling!!! Run for your lives!!!!!
Well, why not 3,900,000? Where do they get these numbers? Basically pulled out of thin air, to fan the flames of hysteria and get you running scared. Now review these correctives:
How U.N. redefined ‘pandemic’ to heighten alarm over H1N1
World Health Organization quietly changed qualification of term in case of ‘swine flu’
Interview with Epidemiologist Tom Jefferson
‘A Whole Industry Is Waiting For A Pandemic’
Calibrated response to emerging infections
Peter Doshi, doctoral student
BELL TOLLING for the Swine Flu
Such "insider knowledge" has therefore resulted in….. this:
Medical workers balk at mandatory flu vaccines
Remember the old farmer’s wisdom about maths:
Figures can lie, and liars can figure.
