Are You Curious to Know Real Numbers on How Many People Die From Flu?
Flu Fatality Fiction Vs Recorded Death Certificate Numbers??
Should the numbers used by media on flu deaths have some relationship to the totals recorded on death certificates?
Until this article, it had never occurred to me look up the numbers for myself by searching for the sources on the internet.
I had a slight setback because pneumonia and influenza are often listed together; but, I did find a CDC report for flu deaths by itself at 1,532 for 2011. (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/flu.htm)
And if you follow the link for a break down of all deaths, 2,995 died of peptic ulcers, and 1,915 died from hernias. Hmm?
As you’ll discover when you read the rest of the article, that number is probably too high; because, they don’t verify the death afterwards with lab tests to show the cause wasn’t one of several other viruses that cause similar symptoms.
These are some highlights. Visit the site to learn more about why you should be skeptical when mainstream medical is pushing to increase their vaccine profits.
The Journal of Advanced Practice Nursing on Flu Deaths
This article Do Not Believe Everything You Hear About Flu Deaths is from The Journal of Advanced Practice Nursing.
Flu results in “about 250,000 to 500,000 yearly deaths” worldwide, Wikipedia tells us. “The typical estimate is 36,000 [deaths] a year in the United States,” reports NBC, citing the Centers for Disease Control.
“Somewhere between 4,000 and 8,000 Canadians a year die of influenza and its related complications”, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada, adding that “Those numbers are controversial because they are estimates.” “Controversial” is an understatement, and not just in Canada, and not just because the numbers are estimates.
The numbers differ wildly from the sober tallies recorded on death certificates — by law every certificate must show a cause — and reported by the official agencies that collect and keep vital statistics.
According to the National Vital Statistics System in the U.S., for example, annual flu deaths in 2010 amounted to just 500 per year — fewer than deaths from ulcers (2,977), hernias (1,832) and pregnancy and childbirth (825), and a far cry from the big killers such as heart disease (597,689) and cancers (574,743).
The story is similar in Canada, where unlikely killers likewise dwarf Statistics Canada’s count of flu deaths.
