Think "Swine Flu" is epidemic? Think again.

According to the CDC website, "Flu activity is increasing in the United States with most states reporting widespread influenza activity. So far, most flu is 2009 H1N1 flu (sometimes called "swine flu"). CDC expects both 2009 H1N1 flu and seasonal flu to cause illness, hospital stays and deaths this season."

So why did a 3-month long CBS investigation reveal that, based on tested samples, most people who have been diagnosed as "presumed" or "possible" cases of H1N1 (swine flu) didn't have it? In fact, according to the results of testing, the patients probably didn't even have seasonal flu.

Below is a 10 minute segment on the investigation's findings. At about 6:40 in, the host reports specific percentages of confirmed H1N1 cases from different states. They are amazingly low. Remember, these were not random samples; these were cases that doctors reported as likely cases of H1N1.
