Worldwide news regarding swine flu doesn’t appear to be dying down much in the upcoming week. While deaths have been reported in the state of Mexico, increasing numbers of people dying from swine flu infection have not been yet reported in other parts of the world.

According to the expert, Tom Jefferson, there is little clinical evidence that shows the flu vaccine has any effect on things like hospital stays, time off of work, death in healthy adults, and even adults suffering from conditions such as cystic fibrosis and asthma.
The Health Ministry in Israel has ordered all clinics to halt administration of the flu vaccine after 3 people died, all within days of being injected with the same flu vaccine.
How is it possible that the wealthiest nation on the planet has an infant mortality rate higher than just about every other industrialized country? Help is finally on the way for solving this dilemma, or so I thought when I first noticed the headlines announcing new recommendations for pregnant moms from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
