So Why Aren’t We Dead Yet?

Hello, cheery subject for Hallmark day, isn’t it? It seems I am not the only person asking this question. Google it and you will see over 40 million results. That is good. People SHOULD be asking this question.

You know, with the Governments telling us that we NEED to do this, that and the other, or we are ‘going to die’, one can’t help but wonder, why aren’t we dead already then? By the law of averages, we are bloody lucky to have made it this far, right?

Look at measles. Why is it so important to have a vaccine? Let’s have a look:

‘Measles is the most deadly of all childhood rash/fever illnesses.’

Well if the CDC said it, it must be true mustn’t it? If Measles is THE ‘most deadly’, how many are dying because of it exactly?

‘The disease remains one of the leading causes of death among young children globally, despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine. Approximately 145 700 people died from measles in 2013 – mostly children under the age of 5’

I am not getting into the current debate though. You know what I mean:
Healthy Children & Adults Vaccinated with Flu Shot are Dying

Yes, that’s the one. Not going there. Anyway, back to the subject: 145,700 Globally? Okay, that does sound like a lot, (but there are 7.3 billion people on this planet). That, of course, will be backed up by non governmental departments, won’t it?

‘For most of the last decade, the nation was seeing only about 60 cases a year. But since 2010, the average has been nearly 160.’

160 cases? not deaths? This was clearly just in the US. Okay, so one can see that the reason for these figures, is that we have vaccines.

How many other diseases/viruses are responsible for deaths worldwide?

AIDS – 54.6 Million. And it’s treatable. These figures are just from 2011.

Bird Flu (H5N1) – None, and it’s no longer treatable, due to a build up of vaccine resistance.

Swine Flu (H1N1) – No recorded deaths in the timeline we are looking at, however, prior to this date (in 2009) there were 8,520 – 17,620.

Heart Disease – 7.4 million.

Stroke – 6.7 million.

Cancer – 10 million (UK and US est)

Just to make a comparison, how many people were killed in traffic related accidents during the same period?

‘Since 2013, in the US alone, the total amount of traffic fatalities is recorded as 131,758.’

No vaccine for that, is there? Let’s look at other things that we are told will kill us:

Ebola – In Europe and the US in 2014 – 24 reported cases. No known vaccine exists.

In the rest of the world, it’s 4,877.

How many people were killed by cops? Surprisingly, there is no data for this. The reason given is that the officers are responsible for recording these details themselves, and well you know, cops are not good with paperwork. There are estimates however, and probably the closest we can find to the real number is:

‘Since 9/11, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by U.S. police officers,’

That sounds about right, when you look at the news reports. It seems like everyday someone has been killed by a cop.

However there is ample information that accurately records the number of cop deaths as being 148.

What about natural disasters? As we know, the planet has more than it’s fair share of earthquakes, but how many people are killed because of it? Of course, precise figures are not available for obvious reasons, but the estimated is between 23,110 and 400,000. That’s a big difference.

Hurricanes – 1.9 million

I could go on, but let’s put what we know so far into some perspective. The list below is the order of importance, it is very telling:

AIDS – 54.6 million.

Cancer – 10 million (est).

Heart Disease – 7.4 million

Stroke – 6.7 million

Hurricane – 1.9 million.

Earthquake – 400,000 (est)

Measles – 145,700.

Traffic Deaths – 131,758

Cop related – 5,148 (est)

Ebola – 4,901

Bird Flu (H5N1) = None.

Swine Flu (H1N1) = None.

Naturally, these figures are not set in stone because we are not great at agreeing with each other, but you can find these figures yourself, if you want. Don’t take my word for it.

I am not going to tell you whether you should or shouldn’t take the vaccines you can get at McDonalds (although….)

(that’s ironic. We may kill you with our products, but you’ll never get a virus).

I am not even going to tell you that, by the law of averages we should be dead already, or that you were given an immune system for a reason. Why are you fucking with it? I am not even going to mention that I personally have never had a vaccine, and I am still here. Nearly half a century, never had measles, mumps, rubella, bird flu, swine flu etc etc.

But I am going to show you something. Something that MIGHT just make you think twice before joining a debate that is quite frankly, meaningless, in the grand scheme of things.

O.M.G! It’s in the WATER!!!! Fancy that, dying of tap water. Are we in the third world? Don’t we pay shit loads of money, in order to prevent this very thing from happening? huh?

(and yes, just like Brian Williams, ever since the backlash from him saying this publicily, he has been furiously back peddling).

So clearly something is going to kill you (God bless those who just die of old age, I say). It’s up to you, what that is. That is the only choice your Government will allow you. How kind they are.

Look, the reason we are not dead yet, is simply because previously we understood that in order to have a healthy and strong immune system, sometimes we have to come into contact with unpleasant things. The common cold is the biggest ‘threat’ to businesses every year, did you know that? Of course you did, because you have had your fair share of colds and you are still here to tell the tale. Sage. There is no vaccine and it doesn’t kill, yet still it does its damage and still people treat it like it’s the plague. I saw an article that has a very dubious title and theme, however, the points raised are really good. Have a look:

What doesn’t kill you serves to make you stronger. And congratulations for not being dead. Yet.
