[Update August 2009: Unfortunately my prediction came true about there being a flu pandemic this fall and winter. I made that prediction back in January based on astrological, synchronistic, and political factors, and wrote this research note in early March. The swine flu hit the news in April. I am leaving most of this article alone for posterity, except I have improved the section below on dietary changes and boosting the immune system].
Chances are high that there will be a flu pandemic within a year, especially during fall and winter of 2009. Pandemics are worse than epidemics, affecting more people over greater areas (like global or continental).
There are astrological, metaphysical, physical, and political factors indicating that a flu pandemic is likely soon, and why it’s more important than ever to build up your immune system.
In trying to nail down the timeline on when the H1N1 virus was made public, I found this post and I had laughed to myself about the post and the timing of the post.
For the moment, I am digging up and trying to nail down timelines on Warren Buffett's investments in companies developing the flu vaccine and his public statements on those companies.
As for timelines I have found at the moment; Buffett's comments on CNBC Squawk Box about his stock ownership in Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline (March 3rd 2009) and the day before, a well known scientist's posting on(March 2nd 2009) about the H1N1 virus, were made before there was any news on the virus outbreak in Mexico.
So there are some interesting coincidences such as when the first H1N1 virus case emerged in Mexico.
It is believed the date of the first case was in February 2009.
Moreover, keep in mind, GlaxoSmithKline had been awarded the first multimillion dollar contract for the swine flu vaccine, without the company even having the seed strain, according to the World Health Organization's timelines and comments made on the seed strain.
I would think that there may have been information floating around in Mexico and feeding up through the chain to the World Health Organization that there might be a new emerging virus that was spreading before the news about the virus hit the mainstream press.
