I found these news releases from Pfizer. I been trying to figure it out and I'm wondering if some experts on here can help me understand all this stuff. FDA apparently approved this new drug for infants and children. I have a few questions and probably will have more tomorrow. Does our government agencies actually promote specific products for use on the people? Who makes the call to promote these products? I'm also having a hard time figuring out all these numbers on the amounts of childhood Pneumonia cases. From what I'm seeing here in this 2006 health report from CDC, I am not finding an overwhelming number of deaths caused by Pneumonia but this stuff needs deciphered by someone smarter than me. http://www.cdc.gov/NCHS/data/nvsr/nvsr57/nvsr57_14.pdf On, Table 11. Death rate for 113 Selected Causes and Enterocolitis due to Clostridium difficile, by age... (rates per 100,000 in specific age groups.......) Pneumonia all ages - 18.5 under 1 year 5.9 1 to 7 years 0.7 5 to 14 years 0.4 Figures for Pneumoconioses (dust and such) and chemicals figures are 0.3 for all ages. Pneumontis due to liquids (drowning) and solids are 5.6 for all ages. From quick facts: Population, 2008 estimate 304,059,724 Persons under 5 years old, percent, 2008 6.9% Persons under 18 years old, percent, 2008 24.3% Can anyone from this information for 2006 come up with a figure of how many children under age 14 actually died in 2006 from Pneumonia?
