(NaturalNews) The H1N1 Swine Flu has spread worldwide and has been declared a pandemic. Questions remain about what drugs are useful and what vaccines can be used to treat this disease. To be better informed, we need to know how viruses work in our bodies. We also need to understand the strategies that the drug companies use to prepare drugs for the flu. In light of this huge international pandemic, the World Health Organization has advised us to wash our hands. So far that is the extent of the emergency precautions. The public should take this opportunity to learn about viruses and how to build up immunity. If our vital force is strong, our bodies will react in normal ways to normal occurrences, such as colds and the flu.

1.Viruses are smart. All living organisms strive for survival. To kill your host is not in a virus`s best interest because the death of their host means death for them as well. That is why after the first round of deaths, virus strains adapt into less virulent strains, and that is what we seem to be seeing in this Swine Flu strain. The virus`s goal is to spread and they do this best when their hosts are alive, at work, play and at school.

2.One-celled organisms make up nearly 90% of our bodies. Only ten percent of our cells make us human and we share most of that DNA--98% of that ten percent--with pigs and gorillas. If viewed from space, one might assume that only one-celled organisms inhabit earth. An article in National Geographic suggested that perhaps the viruses caused people to evolve opposable thumbs in order to provide a better food supply for the viruses. Perhaps, as the article suggested, the viruses are running the show.

3.Who stands to gain from this? We should evaluate the manner in which pharmaceutical medication is being introduced to the American public. Most drugs require years of testing before the FDA licenses them for use on humans- years of testing in animals followed by years of clinical trials on humans. Drugs like Tamiflu were rushed to market. The virus strains intended for treatment by this medication had not yet morphed into altered strains and were, therefore, not available for the required clinical trials. How did this drug get approved? Billions of American tax dollars were spent stockpiling this drug during the Bush Administration.

It is in everyone`s best interest if drugs are tested and proven to be useful, should a virulent strain of virus bent on its own and our destruction appear. Until viruses learn to evolve opposable thumbs or legs to walk on, we remain their primary source of life support and food. The symbiotic relationship that has sustained man and viruses in a tug-of-war harmony will likely continue. If you have the flu, gargle with salt water and get some rest.
