Flu Mortality Stats Overstated in Canada

May I just say that I love the Canadian press? First Amendment, shmirst Amendment. Something like this would never make it to print in the US.

Thanks for posting.

 

I love this sentence:

 

At the risk of oversimplifying, this is the basic formula of that model: winter deaths (minus) summer deaths = death by flu virus.

Wow. Just, wow! There were so many excellent statements in that article, and I couldn't decide which ones to copy here!  I'm AMAZED this article made it into the news. United States, land of the Free (haha) please take a lesson from Canada's superior reporting skills.

Oh, there will be rebuttal from the higher ups and of course the journalist will be made out to be an anti-vaccine crackpot.

Wow - very eye opening indeed!
