Methamphetamine Kills The Flu

November 20, 2012 by  

I’m not advocating using deadly and highly addictive methamphetamine as a flu fighter, but some doctors may one day.

That’s because researchers in Taiwan report that methamphetamine exhibits flu-fighting qualities. Now, they’re trying to break down the ingredients to determine which one(s) are responsible in the hope that doctors can begin prescribing them to fight flu symptoms.

Depending on who’s making it, methamphetamine contains ingredients like drain opener, brake fluid, sodium hydroxide, ether, hydrochloric acid, lighter fluid, lye, red phosphorus and ammonium nitrate. Many of these ingredients are so toxic that hazmat teams are called in to clean up meth labs when they are discovered.

The meth-as-a-flu-fighter research was reported in the journal PLoS One. The report states: “We report the first evidence that meth significantly reduces, rather than increases, virus propagation and the susceptibility to influenza infection.”

But doctors and scientists have no problem foisting harmful drugs on an unsuspecting and unthinking populace as long as Big Pharma is pushing the drug. Proof of that comes in the flu vaccines (which cause a 1,700 percent increase in narcolepsy, hallucinations, paralyzing physical collapses and Guillain-Barré syndrome) and the flu drug Tamiflu (which causes adverse reactions like convulsions, delirium, delusion, blindness and death).

So researchers continue to meddle with harmful alternatives Big Pharma can use to rake in huge profits while ignoring the healthful effects and flu-fighting abilities of vitamin D.
