The article below may have some truth in it but at the same time “turns the whole ruth upside down”…………Why are people not more careful.
The article states: In 2010, for instance, after the H1N1 flu pandemic, an investigative inquiry by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that “key scientists advising the World Health Organization on planning for an influenza pandemic had done paid work for pharmaceutical firms that stood to gain from the guidance they were preparing. These conflicts of interest have never been publicly disclosed by WHO, and WHO has dismissed inquiries into its handling of the A/H1N1 pandemic as ‘conspiracy theories’.”
[my remark: they did admit when confronted which NO MEDICAL BODY in the world did as far as I know.
The truth is:
WHO admits to “inconsistencies” in its policy on conflicts of interest [concerning swine flu vaccine] 2010
All of the Israeli citizens will be advised to take-as every year- the FLU VACCINE.
AS ALWAYS THERE WILL BE A HEAVY PROPAGANDA ACTION GOING ON.
Everyone should decide for himself.
I don’t advise this vaccine and NEVER did as I seems to me that no real benefit comes from this during all the many years and that endless financial interests has dominated the picture.
If you took this vaccine for many, many years and you felt well with it and “believe” that it helped you, then go one.
Below I am sending you a piece of text which I sent in 2010, to show how “honest” organizations are…at least the WHO was the ONLY ONE in the world who at that time admitted their conflict of interests.[not spontaneously!!]
WHO admits to “inconsistencies” in its policy on conflicts of interest Published 15 June 2010, doi:10.1136/bmj.c3167]
It is quite possible that there were more Corona cases in those who were vaccinated for influenza last year.
All the companies with huge financial interests will deny this possibility of course!
Recently an article was published again stating this possibility but the article is extremely complicated [statistical] so I don’t see a reason to forward it, as virtually nobody will be able to follow the text.
Is in doubt: shev ve al ta-ase
The WHO [World Health Organization] is / had been one of the [ few ] independent health bodies in the world, I know about.
Having worked in the tropics I am well aware of the various medical monographs edited by them, highly practical, trustful and useful such as about oral rehydration and the importance of counting the breathing frequency of sick children.
These monographs have often been ignored by the “richer” countries who thought that these simple ideas were not fitting them…I think !! [ the well known arrogance of medical establishments ]
It is therefore sad to realize that even this bastion of independence has tumbled down at least concerning their advice about certain vaccinations [ flu ] as published by the British Medical Journal [see below]

The World Health Organization has admitted that its policiesÂ governing the publication of conflicts of interests of its expert advisers have “inconsistencies” and that safeguards “surrounding engagements with industry” need to be tightened.
The agency was responding to criticisms of its handling of the swine flu pandemic in an investigation by the BMJÂ and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and a report from the Council ofEurope published last week.
The join BMJ and bureau investigation found that key scientists advising WHO on planning for a flu pandemic had done paid work for drug firms that stood to gain from the guidance and that the agency had not declared these conflicts of interests (BMJ 2010;340:c2912, 3 Jun, doi:10.1136/bmj.c2912). In addition, the names of 16 members of the WHO “emergency committee” have been kept secret to outsiders, and as such their possible conflicts of interest with drug companies. . .
