More Evidence of Evil Marketing Geniuses at Work

You know drug companies are getting mighty desperate about selling the "safety" of their harmful flu vaccines to an increasingly wary public when they fund promotional tie-ins to an expected-to-be hit movie among children, as Roche has done with the Warner Brothers animated film, Happy Feet, opening across America Nov. 17.

Roche, makers of the worthless and deadly Tamiflu, and Warner Brothers might not have made the connection, were it not for the film's distributor (Brand Arc) who's also inked promotional deals with Burger King and General Mills to promote the film.

Imagine using cute penguins (remember the Oscar-winning documentary March of the Penguins) included in TV commercials and ads appearing in magazines and on Web sites that urge mothers to remain vigilant of their children's health during the upcoming flu season. So it should be no surprise to you, Tamiflu is at the top of the list of preventative measures moms can take.

Before you consider allowing your child to be vaccinated, I strongly urge you to do your homework, especially in regard to the neurological damage these jabs -- tainted with the mercury-based preservative thimerosal -- can do. If you've ever wondered why folks like the Amish don't have autistic children, you're that much closer to understanding the link between mercury and this brain-damaging disease.
