Interesting claim: no connection between various outbreaks

Pass it on: There is no connection between this year's outbreaks of flu, whooping cough and norovirus.
from Flu, Whooping Cough and Norovirus: What's Going On?

Well, in light of my previous post, and the fact that the Vitamin D pushers naturally also claim that children require large doses of Vit D, this cavalier assertion that a negative has been proven (i.e. that there is no connection between these outbreaks) makes me suspicious. Perhaps it's a hint that there is indeed a connection, and that the connection is weakened immunity due to increased consumption of Vit D. The article seems to conclude that random chance is causing an increasing incidence of all of these diseases, which seems rather unscientific.
