Difference between Cold and Swine Flu Symptoms

Symptom Cold Swine Flu
Fever Fever is rare with a cold. Fever is usually present with the flu in up to 80% of all flu cases. A temperature of 100°F or higher for 3 to 4 days is associated with the flu.
Coughing A hacking, productive (mucus- producing) cough is often present with a cold. A non-productive (non-mucus producing) cough is usually present with the flu (sometimes referred to as dry cough).
Aches Slight body aches and pains can be part of a cold. Severe aches and pains are common with the flu.
Stuffy Nose Stuffy nose is commonly present with a cold and typically resolves spontaneously within a week. Stuffy nose is not commonly present with the flu.
Chills Chills are uncommon with a cold. 60% of people who have the flu experience chills.
Tiredness Tiredness is fairly mild with a cold. Tiredness is moderate to severe with the flu.
Sneezing Sneezing is commonly present with a cold. Sneezing is not common with the flu.
Sudden Symptoms Cold symptoms tend to develop over a few days. The flu has a rapid onset within 3-6 hours. The flu hits hard and includes sudden symptoms like high fever, aches and pains.
Headache A headache is fairly uncommon with a cold. A headache is very common with the flu, present in 80% of flu cases.
Sore Throat Sore throat is commonly present with a cold. Sore throat is not commonly present with the flu.
Chest Discomfort Chest discomfort is mild to moderate with a cold. Chest discomfort is often severe with the flu.

    Having just lost my grandmother to a combination of H1N1 and pneumonia brought on by the flu – I cannot stress enough to watch and beware. My grandmother went from a vibrant active person to completely incapacitated in the hospital in less than 24 hours and dead 3 days later.

    Please be careful and please get yourselves vaccinated if you can.


  2. Oh, Faye … I’m so sorry to hear you’ve lost your Grandmother! Alan is in the high risk group and Iwe’re trying to locate the vaccine. Easier said than done …

    I have questions, Faye. How old was your grandmother? Did she have the vaccine befoe she became ill? Everyone needs to do Extensive homework on the swine vaccine…It has extremely toxic adjuvants in there…like mercury, aluminum, squalene, other antibiotics, animal tissue…that are highly likely to have side effects like Guillame Barre syndrome….There has been much fear created around this flu and former President Bush passed legislation that if you are injured by a vaccine, you cannot hold the drug company liable for the injuries….They are held harmless…So they created these vaccines with virtually no testing, spent billions of dollars on them and have created a need for the public to take them. I would very carefully consider all the facts and look up as much information that I could about the vaccines..When I was looking up info on this, I learned that vaccines are virtually useless against flus….It was one thing when they were vaccinating against polio and smallpox long ago, but flu is a different issue. There was supposedly a bird flu epidemic in 1976 and many people had taken the vaccines and as a result, were stricken with Guillame Barre syndrome….There are many other ways to support the immune system than receiving a shot. It is very iimportant for us to really consider what is going on here and not just act unthinkingly. Many of the results of this vaccination have been suppressed by the media…Please everyone do your homework on this!!!!!!! There are many vaccine sites on which you can find information.

    to answer your questions…

    my grandmother was 88 years old and had not had the vaccine as it was not yet available up here.

    I don’t know if the Canadian version of the vaccine is different from the US one – ours is made by GSK (GlaxoSmithKline – I think is the long name). But everything I have read and talked to both my Aunt (a hospital nurse) and my doctor as well as several news reports is that our vaccine does not and will not cause Guillaume Barre syndrome like the Influenza vaccine of the 70’s. The Canadian gov’t did not release our vaccine without testing – that’s where the Canadian system varies from yours – there are a lot more procedures and protocols to be met before receiving approvals. A good example of this is the OTC drug Aleve – it has just been approved for use in Canada whereas it’s been available for years in the States, my headache pill of choice – Excedrin extra strength/migraine I can’t get up here as it’s not been approved by our government as yet (it may or may not ever be).

    But to keep this in some semblance of reality there are annually over 35000 deaths to the regular flu and there have been around 100 to H1N1 – this is in the US alone. But the flu vaccine is different it is made of several different strains that have been shown to be most prevalent within the last year. How many of those deaths could have been prevented if there had been the same focus put on the flu as there is on this one strain. The H1N1 is aimed at one specific virus and it is shown to be effective up here.

    H1N1 strikes fast and kills fast, the vaccine has been shown to be effective against it – I will be getting my shot as will my daughter when the vaccine is again available to those outside the high risk group.

    The Goal of Every H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine:
    Immunotoxicity, Neurotoxicity and Sterility

    Science dictates that only a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study can generate unbiased results in any clinical trial. In the history of vaccine development, no such study has ever been performed. It is only unscientific opinions and pharmaceutical propaganda which have propelled the mythological validity, safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Dozens of controlled studies have scientifically verified the immunotoxicty, neurotoxicity and sterility of common vaccine ingredients which destroy human health, yet they are all ignored by conventional medicine.

    There should be a public outcry and challenge to every public health official, medical specialist or scientist (from any country) who justifies the inoculation of their population without providing the evidence of safety and effectiveness of the respective H1N1 vaccine in their country.

    The public should be demanding that their governments materialize at least one vaccine trial which is randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled that can scientifically validate the assertions of public health officials.

    Since the pharmacokinetic properties of vaccines are not studied, vaccine manufacturers cannot deny any of the toxic effects listed below. The reason they never analyze the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of these ingredients is because it would eradicate the vaccine industry. However the individual effects of each ingredient and their toxic effects on cells are well documented.

    Every Physician, Nurse or medical personnel who administers the H1N1 vaccine (or any vaccine) should be asking themselves why they are injecting the following ingredients into patients that have been scientifically proven to cause immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity, sterility and cancer:
