This article is a little over a year old but it is still important to realize the political and economical aspects of vaccine marketing....including intentionally creating a market for vaccines. This marketing can involve just propaganda to exaggerate a normal flu season or it could go as far as genetically engineering a microbe, letting it loose, letting it spread and then coming up with a vaccine. You would think though that whoever creates an engineered microbe, would also have to have an antidote.

It also doesn't sound as if Poland's NATIONAL Health Care System is doing very well. We need to do our own research concerning national Healthcare programs in other countries and not just take Michael Moore's word for it. We have basically been given two options...the system we have now..or nationalized healthcare. There are never only two answers to a problem but yet that appears to be what we are being led to believe.


Homeless people die after bird flu vaccine trial in Poland

Three Polish doctors and six nurses are facing criminal prosecution after a number of homeless people died following medical trials for a vaccine to the H5N1 bird-flu virus.

The medical staff, from the northern town of Grudziadz, are being investigated over medical trials on as many as 350 homeless and poor people last year, which prosecutors say involved an untried vaccine to the highly-contagious virus.
Authorities claim that the alleged victims received £1-2 to be tested with what they thought was a conventional flu vaccine but, according to investigators, was actually an anti bird-flu drug.
The director of a Grudziadz homeless centre, Mieczyslaw Waclawski, told a Polish newspaper that last year, 21 people from his centre died, a figure well above the average of about eight.
Although authorities have yet to prove a direct link between the deaths and the activities of the medical staff, Poland's health minister, Ewa Kopacz, has said that the doctors and nurses involved should not return to their profession. "It is in the interests of all doctors that those who are responsible for this are punished," the minister added.
Investigators are also probing the possibility that the medical staff may have also have deceived the pharmaceutical companies that commissioned the trials.
The suspects said that the all those involved knew that the trial involved an anti-H5N1 drug and willingly participated.
The news of the investigation will come as another blow to the reputation of Poland's beleaguered and poverty-stricken national health service. In 2002, a number of ambulance medics were found guilty of killing their patients for commissions from funeral companies.
