Swine Flu all Hype? Google Flu Tracker Says Low

The average yearly death rate for just your run of the mill flu is 63,729 per year. That’s 5,310 per month, 1,225 per week, 174 per day. This is just in the United States. Don’t you think if the news media reported every death from just your average flu people might panic as they have with Swine Flu? How many deaths have resulted from the Swine  Flu so far… 149 in Mexico. To back my theory that this is mostly hype check out the screen shot of Google Flu Tracker. The activity for flu in the United States says “Low.”

    Yes, and you know, everyone seems to have bought a face mask–at least they are all sold out at every store I’ve been to. However, I don’t see ANYONE wearing one!

    MSM loves the hype. News channels and papers make more money when you’re scared. Now my cruise to Mexico got canceled! Thanks swine flu hype.
