Is the Swine Flu Epidemic a Scare Tactic to make $$ for Pharmaceutical Companies? CBS News claims Serious Overestimate of cases
CBS News reports that H1N1 test results have been overwhelmingly negative. In fact, the CDC told the states in July to stop collecting data. CBS News just released the results of a 3 month investigation and find something entirely different than what the CDC claims.

Not that I would ever suspect collusion between the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry and the CDC, but there appears to be cross purposes here and conflicts of interest. Not that it's the first time of course either.
Now we have Obama declaring a National Emergency for H1N1 Flu. See Here: Obama declares National Emergency
Since I have no love of pharmaceutical companies having fought with them for 18 years over the lies they spread about tanning and sun exposure (I used to own tanning salons) I have serious doubts about anything they do in the way of public awareness. If they have their way, every American and better yet every person on the planet would get a vaccination against H1N1 and seasonal Flu both.
And it's not like I'm against vaccinations as I have been vaccinated against smallpox, hepatitis A & B, polio, diphtheria, and tetanus. I have only had one flu shot ever and that was in the 1970s flu scare. I can't remember the last time I had the Flu, 25 years ago at least, if it even was. I used to get sick on occasion but once I stopped eating at the company cafeteria I never did again.
So, is this a case of the pharmaceutical companies scamming us all to make a profit out of fear? Or is it real? Questions need to be asked and answered.
