IAHF List:

In my last alert (http://www.ymlp.com/pubarchive_show_message.php?jham+418 I alerted you to the website of Robert Cathcart, MD http://www.orthomed.com/bird.htm where I asked you to download a PDF file Titled "Preparing for the Coming Influenza Pandemic" by Grattan Woodson, MD

I hadn't read that whole PDF file before sending it out, but realize now from reading the whole thing that Cathcart himself wouldn't agree with large sections of this other MDs advice, (Woodson advises people to use Tamiflu and to get flu vaccines which I know Cathcart himself would never do, so its obvious that he provides the article none the less as food for thought in an effort to convey the seriousness of what we're seeing unfold as it has SOME information that IS useful.

So I'd like to just add that clarification, and for protection purposes refer you instead to Cathcart's own information about using Vitamin C for treatment:

I'd also like to direct you to this article by Jon Barron: "Asian Bird Flu- Initial Report"

Also see this solid information from Jonathan Campbell who is on the IAHF List:

Its clear that there is no single way of addressing this situation, but that many of us could benefit from paying attention to this situation as it has the potential to cause serious disruption in our society. In a worst case scenario, if the outbreak were on a par with the pandemic of 1918, it could cause massive disruption even leading to the declaration of martial law due to the sheer numbers of people it could impact. If you get NOTHING ELSE from my alerts on this, please realize that this situation has the potential to be far worse than a typical winters flu outbreak.

The Avian flu pandemic of 1918 killed an estimated 8,000,000. people, but if a similar outbreak occurred today, with the much denser population we have and with air travel it could spread much faster so it pays to be prepared for any eventuality. That is why Cathcart included the article by Woodson who goes so far as to advise us to get our Wills in order just in case.
