  1. The cases of narcolepsy and many other adverse events from Pandemrix are utterly tragic. Pandemrix contains more squalene than any other vaccine on the market. Squalene is in many foods, but according to independent researchers it increases risk of autoimmune diseases when injected. It is regularly used to induce autoimmune diseases in lab rats.
    Narcolepsy is an autoimmune disease. The increased risk of narcolepsy should therefore have been expected.
    The swine flu situation was handled shamefully by the Norwegian authorities.
    There are thousands who are still suffering and get no compensation. There was gross under-reporting of adverse events. We know of many who were not permitted to report their problems. Many were told that the symptoms had no connection with the vaccine.
    We who were active in criticizing the vaccine were contacted by many who desperately needed help and who were turned away by the authorities. We also tried to help women who had miscarriages immediately after the vaccine, but we were helpless. It was a nightmare for us all.
