Military ORDERED to get Flu Vaccination, to mitigate medical risk, but we are pushing Open homosexual service and IGNORING the medical risk associated with that behavior?

Posted by mrfixit on December 14, 2010

The military is DEMANDING, actually ORDERING people to take the flu shot, this to lower the risk of the flu, apparently medical risks are important when it comes to flu, but risks associated with the homosexual lifestyle, well those we are supposed to ignore?  

But what are the real risks of flu for healthy, mostly young adults in the military?

Well not that high apparently…

People who are at high-risk for flu (children, seniors and people with certain health conditions) should also receive a pneumococcal vaccination.”

http://www.flu.gov/individualfamily/vaccination/index.html

“high risk” persons does not fit the VAST majority of military members, since most of these conditions are disqualifying for military service!

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/high_risk.htm

Ok, so what is the risk of dying from H1N1 for example?

Well CDC says they estimate 61 million contracted H1N1, and there were 12,470 deaths.  So that puts the odds of death for those who get the flu at about 1 chance in 4900, and that is IF you already had the flu!  Your chances of getting the flu were about 1 in 5 if the population was taken to be about 300 million. So chance of dying from the flu are about 1 chance in 25000.  (And that is ALL ages, not the lowest risk age group of the military service members!)

http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/estimates_2009_h1n1.htm

Now, that might be good odds compared to the lottery, but what are the risks of the vaccination for comparison?

Well, it can be one out of 100,000, or 1 out of a million, the CDC is not able to pin it down more precisely, but there are RISKS with the vaccine.  So the risk of flu death might be 4 times greater than the risk of vaccine related problems, like this from the CDC site: “Normally, about one person per 100,000 people per year will develop Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), an illness characterized by fever, nerve damage, and muscle weakness.”

Well, that sounds just great doesn’t it?  To avoid a one out of 25,000 risk you take on a risk of one out of 100,000 risk of harm from the vaccine.  Hardly convincing of the absolute NEED for a vaccine when the actual illness has only a one in 5,000 chance of fatal consequences, mostly in the HIGH risk populations!

Here is a bit of data the nails the point that the military age range is the least likely to need the vaccine:

“During 1990–1999, estimated average rates of influenza-associated pulmonary and circulatory deaths per 100,000 persons were 0.4–0.6 among persons aged 0–49 years, 7.5 among persons aged 50–64 years, and 98.3 among persons aged ≥65 years (6).”

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr58e0724a1.htm

So, it actually could be 1 out of 200,000, and that is why we MUST be ordered to take this vaccine?

So let’s compare to HIV, since we are looking at the DADT and open serving homosexual, which in my previous post I show have a 43 times higher rate of HIV, and 3-4 times higher incidence of sexual assault in the male homosexual population. 

What then is the risk to the military member of the addition of open homosexuals in the military?

Well, the DoD data also showed that in the last 3 years male sexual assault victims have gone from 5% to 11%, this of total victims.

So here are HIV estimates again:

“In 2008, CDC estimated that approximately 56,300 people were newly infected with HIV in 20061  (the most recent year that data are available). Over half (53%) of these new infections occurred in gay and bisexual men.”

“In 2007, the estimated number of deaths of persons with an AIDS diagnosis in the United States and dependent areas was 18,089.”

http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/basic.htm#hivest

So we have MORE deaths from AIDS than the flu, and from a mostly homosexual male population, but we are going to accept open gay service, and then force the flu shot based on risk mitigation? 

There is NO LOGIC in this?!

We are to ignore this risk for homosexuals, and then we are to accept the need for a Flu shot based on risk mitigation…  Are you getting the picture yet? 

The open homosexual service argument has no rational justification.  It is to introduce a slew of new issues in the military, and you’ll note I needed to cast NO moral judgment to reach this conclusion.

They are going to fight for this, it is essential to destroy the US Military as a fighting force.  It will do considerable damage, and it won’t help Gays at all, that is not the point.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/house-approves-repeal-of-dont-ask-dont-tell/

So, in NY City they know there are real dangers with Male Homosexual activity, and they try to warn people so they might experience lower risk.  Sounds reasonable, right?  No, apparently it is upsetting the gay rights crowd!  They don’t want their participant aware of real medical risks and they don’t want them to even attempt to protect themselves.  That would be horrible apparently!

These same geniuses are pushing OPEN homosexuals into the military, so they are foisting their intentional ignorance of real risks upon others!  They have NO right to do this.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/gay-activists-upset-over-graphic-hiv-psa/

More:

I stumbled upon a plethora of medical information that suggests a cover up for the real risks of male homosexual activity, but an active effort has been made to obscure this information!  (ironically placing male homosexuals at risk by obscuring information that might foster safer behaviour!)

Homosexual men and much higher risk for parasitic infections:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19653954

Actually more likely to have all forms of STDs, this CDC study indicates a whopping 62% in fact, that from a tiny segment of the total population:

http://www.cdc.gov/std/stats09/msm.htm

Not to mention the statistics indicate the problem is getting much worse, not better despite all the efforts at education about “safe sex” it is a miserable failure for this segment of society.

Here is a quote:

“Since 2000, the largest increase in syphilis cases has been among men who have sex with men (MSM). In 2009, MSM accounted for nearly two-thirds of syphilis cases (62%), up from just 4% in 2000. “

 http://www.cdc.gov/std/stats09/tables/trends-table.htm

 More from CDC: “Members of the LGBT community are at increased risk for a number of health threats when compared to their heterosexual peers” 

 Yes, like 53% of new HIV/AIDS in 2006 and then there is even another 4%  portion of the remaining 47% that are also associated with male homosexual activity!  That is 57% of the total.

 http://www.cdc.gov/lgbthealth/

 http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/incidence.htm

More quotes:

  “Indeed, gay and bisexual men of all races and ethnicities are the most affected of any group of Americans.”

 http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/resources/factsheets/response.htm

Only 22 states track this data?  Why are they not all interested in tracking this data, is there a motive to cover up this very real risk and problem?

“new HIV diagnoses in 22 states with name-based HIV reporting systems”

http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/resources/factsheets/incidence.htm

(Oh, in this data set it shows declining hetero-sexual HIV infections but increasing MSM (male homosexual infections)

Then there is Anal cancer risk, associated typically with male homosexual activity as a risk factor (most who get it before age 50 are men):

From the list for risk factors: “having receptive anal intercourse”

http://www.webmd.com/cancer/what-is-anal-cancer

And it works out to a 35 times higher risk according to this site:

“Anal cancer affects men and women, but it is the only cancer with a greater prevalence among men who have sex with men (MSM) than in the general population. About 35 in every 100,000 MSM develop anal cancer, compared to less than one in every 100,000 heterosexual men. The risk for anal cancer in HIV-positive men is twice as high as that for HIV-negative MSM.”

http://www.diagnose-me.com/cond/C396383.html

And another source that confirms this data:

http://aids.about.com/od/otherconditions/a/analca.htm

Minnesota Department of Health says:

“Men who have sex with men (MSM) in Minnesota and the United States continue to suffer the effects of a variety of health disparities. Reasons for this are complex, but the results are real: increased rates of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, increased rates of rectal cancer as well as smoking and substance abuse, to name a few.”

http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/idepc/diseases/syphilis/eliminationproject/plan.html

This report suggest an even more elevated risk (Nearly 70 times, with onset in the 40’s):

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2780243/

And there are other Risks, this one a bacteria (Lymphogranuloma Venereum

(LGV)) that causes ulcers and fistulae and also associated mostly with male homosexual sex:

http://www.gov.mb.ca/cgi-bin/print_hit_bold.pl/health/publichealth/cdc/protocol/lgv.pdf

Apparently this is a fairly new medical risk, this from 2005, but I have heard very little about it, but it is yet another risk associated almost exclusively with male homosexual sex:

http://www.santepub-mtl.qc.ca/Publication/pdfppm/ppmmarch2006.pdf

And the CDC is on it as well:

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5342a2.htm

In the UK:

http://www.natap.org/2007/HIV/011907_01.htm

US data:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20131124

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19333054

From Australia:

http://www.mshc.org.au/Portals/6/11.CPG%20M3%20Proctitis.pdf

So why don’t we hear about these dangers and risks for male homosexuals and why are these medical risks not worth consideration when accepting recruits?  Other medical “risks” are denied, but these risks, well we are to look the other way and ignore?  How is that fair or just?

We don’t know much because it was a marketing scheme to conceal the truth.  These medical risks have long been realized and the risk of male homosexual activity as well, but there has been a very effective campaign to cover up the truth, this entry from Conservapedia does a great job of explaining this effort:

    First it was anthrax and now it is flu. Why is it that it is the military that is always being used as the guinea pig? And it also seems to just so happen to be under democrat presidents that these cases happen. Hmmmmm.
