Will You Line Up for This Year’s Lethal Injection? 25 Safe Natural Alternatives to the Flu Shot

get your flu shot

Want $10 off your bill at the grocery store?  Stop by our pharmacy and let us jab a needle full of toxins into your arm!

Want to avoid killing off your newborn, your elderly neighbor, and some random unvaccinated cancer patient?  Do your part by getting stabbed!

Want to circumvent potential death by influenza?  Just get your flu shot at any of our convenient walk-in locations.

Want to keep your job?  Get your mandatory flu shot or your fired – but don’t worry – it’s FREE!

It’s that time of year again.  The propaganda machine is in high gear, churning out the fear in order to get everyone lined up for their annual flu shots.   Widely trusted websites like the CDC, Flu.gov, and the Mayo Clinic are all trumpeting the necessity of this year’s vaccination and proclaiming it to be the best way to stay healthy.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) held a press conference yesterday (Sept. 26, 2013) in conjunction with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) to kick off this year’s vaccine push.

“Our message today is simple,” Dr. Howard Koh, assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “Everyone 6 months of age and older should receive a flu vaccine.

The good news, according to the government health agency, is that more kids and health care workers got vaccinated during last year’s flu season, compared to previous years. That’s key, because children and people with preexisting health conditions are at higher risk for more serious cases of flu.

But, those positive trends are not going to put the brakes on the CDC’s efforts to tout the vaccines, especially among some high-risk groups still lagging in coverage rates.

“Despite substantial progress, we can do even more to make our country healthier through prevention,” said Koh. “We must do everything possible now to be prepared.” (source)

This year the focus is on pregnant women and people who are employed at long term health care facilities.  Don’t be surprised to see another rash of “get your flu shot or lose your job” ultimatums for nursing home workers.  Last year, workplaces, schools and other activities across the US and Canada instituted policies that forced all participants to receive a flu shot. Longterm hospital employees were fired for refusing to have the toxin injected into themselves.  Children were banned from pre-schools and daycares in 6 states.  Nursing students were told to have the shot or lose their placements, thus disqualifying them for their degrees. The media and government launched a full-out propaganda assault to force those who didn’t want it to have the flu shot anyway, at risk of their livelihoods and educations.

What the propagandists and flu shot proponents fail to mention are the horror stories – like the fact that 23 senior citizens (in that touted high-risk-must-get-a-shot group) just DIED from the same flu shots that are given at local pharmacies, with no accountability, no prescription necessary, and no check up from the doctor. (But you DO get a handy 20% off shopping pass when you get your flu shot!)

Package inserts for flu vaccines show a multitude of side effects, including death, and yet they are marketed the same as over-the-counter drugs with no prescription needed. Why?

Because in the United States vaccines enjoy complete immunity from lawsuits in the market place. If you are injured or die from a vaccine, you or your family cannot sue the manufacturer of the vaccine. This law enacted by Congress, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011.

Therefore, they are marketed with the same marketing techniques as any other high-profit product. With the baby boomer generation moving into their senior years, today’s seniors are seen as an especially lucrative market. (source)

Flu shots mean big money to the pharmacies, to the doctors, and to the drug companies.  The frenzy with which the flu shot is promoted is directly proportionate to the profit margin, but those lining their pockets fail to mention that you could be paying them to give you and your family a lethal injection.

Why I Won’t Get a Flu Shot

My first thought when the government absolutely insists that I do something is, “Heck no.”

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want to – I’m cool with that – but the insistence of the powers that be that my family and I be injected with foreign substances that have not been proven to be effective and that have mild to severe side effects makes me plain suspicious.

My family and I will not be getting a flu shot this year (or any other year) for 5 reasons.  (Check out last year’s article, 5 Reasons Why I’ll Never Get a Flu Shot, for more details on each of these reasons.)

  • It doesn’t work.
  • There are horrible toxic ingredients in the vaccine.
  • There is a risk of mild to horrific side effects.
  • I don’t trust the FDA, the CDC, or the AMA – they work for the benefit of the government and Big Business – not for the benefit of the public.
  • If the mainstream media is constantly endorsing it, I refuse to participate because they are known propagandists and mouthpieces for advertisers and political agendas.

Just like with any other sales pitch, the more insistent the salesman and the less information they want to give you about the product, the faster you should run the other direction.

But…Isn’t the Shot the Best Way to Prevent Catching the Flu?

You will hear in about 10,971 variations that “The best way to prevent catching the flu is to receive your annual flu shot.”

This is actually untrue.

The absolute, number one way to avoid catching the flu is through the exercise of good personal hygiene.

  1. Wash your hands frequently when you are out.
  2. Use a paper towel to open bathroom doors and turn on taps.
  3. Although I’m normally not a big fan of hand sanitizer, use it during the height of flu season if you have to touch things that everyone else has been touching, like the handle of the shopping cart, door knobs, and debit machines.
  4. Use antibacterial wipes (or at least baby wipes) to wash your hands and wipe the steering wheel when you get back into your vehicle.
  5. Avoid touching your face – this welcomes germs that are on your hands into your body.
  6. During the height of flu season, consider taking a quick shower and changing clothes when you return home, particularly if you have been in a germ-ridden place like a doctor’s office or pharmacy.
  7. Make sure the kids change clothes and  thoroughly wash their hands when they return home from school.
  8. I shouldn’t really have to say this, but….wash your hands after using the bathroom and before preparing or eating food.

If your local area is being hit hard by the flu, practice avoidance to keep your family healthy.

9.  Stay home as much as possible. (Obviously, if you have work and school outside the home, this become more difficult, but avoid malls, movie theaters, and sporting events for the duration of the epidemic.)
10.  Stay away from sick people if you can.
11.  Avoid eating at restaurants – you don’t know the health or hygiene habits of the kitchen staff.

If someone in your family is sick, try to minimize the spread of the illness.

12.  If you or a family member are sick, stay home from work or school to prevent passing it on to others.

13.  If a family member is sick, keep them isolated away from the rest of the family.

14.  Use antibacterial wipes to clean surfaces that the sick person touches – doorknobs, TV remotes, keyboards, toilet handles, and phones.

15. Immediate place dishes and flatware used by the sick person into hot, soapy dishwater with a drop of bleach in it.

16.  Teach children to cough into the crook of their arm instead of covering their mouth with their hands.

17.  Have the sick person wash their hands frequently with soap and water to help prevent spreading germs through physical contact. If soap and water is unavailable, have them use hand sanitizer.

Some other ways to stay healthy are to use natural strategies to maximize your immune system.

18.  Drink lots of water to keep your system hydrated and efficient.

19.  Take a high quality, organic multi-vitamin.

20.  Take at least 3000 IUs of Vitamin D3 daily - research has shown a link between a Vitamin D deficit and susceptibility to the flu.

21.  Eat lots of fruits and vegetables (preferably organic and pesticide free).

22.  Get 7-9 hours of sleep per day – a tired body has a weaker immunity against viruses.

23.  Don’t smoke – this weakens your resistance against respiratory illnesses and worsens the effect on your body if you do become ill.

24.  Avoid or limit alcoholic beverages.

25.  Avoid or limit processed foods.

Should You Head to the Pharmacy If You Get the Flu?

If, despite all of your precautions, you do get sick, you don’t have to resort to over-the-counter remedies and prescription antivirals.  These can have horrendous side effects and are rarely effective.

Check out this article to learn more about the treatments from the pharmacy and discover some effective remedies that are as close as your kitchen.

As well, consider investing in nature’s version of Tamiflu – elderberry extract.  Scientists have isolated the active compound in the elderberry.  It is called Antivirin and is found in proteins of the black elderberry.  The compound prevents the flu virus from invading the membranes of  healthy cells.

If you are sick, increase your levels of Vitamin D3 to medicinal level doses – it has been proven to reduce the time and severity of flu symptoms – learn more about this treatment option from the Vitamin D Council (the information on Vitamin D is great but sadly the article contains flu shot and Tamiflu propaganda – so, take the beneficial information and mentally set aside the rest.)

The worst case scenario is that you do, indeed, contract the flu. Despite the hullabaloo, you are probably not going to die, be hospitalized, or suffer horrific permanent damage from a bout of the flu. People get sick, but death from the seasonal flu is rare.  This manufactured panic over flu prevention is agenda-based.  Big Pharma wants money and Big Government wants control.

I don’t believe that all health care professionals and flu-shot advocates have ill-intent.  I think that many of them have just sipped the mainstream media Kool-aid – the tale-spinners of Big Pharma have slipped in just enough truth to make their theories believable.  Most people are deep-down decent and have difficulty believing that such a perverse money/power agenda could exist.

I’ll take the risk of illness that my healthy immune system can fight off over the risk of being forcibly inoculated with whatever toxins the creators of these vaccines choose to include.  I’ll use my little arsenal of home remedies and come through it without the risk of long-term side effects that have yet to be discovered (or at least, have yet to be made public).

  1. G! says:

    My grandmother was born in 1892. She was the seventh of eight children with her eldest sibling being 25 years older than she. One of those older brothers was a doctor. Even “back then,” it was well known to prevent the flu, you should “1. Wash your hands frequently when you are out. 2 Use [your clean handkerchief] to open bathroom doors and turn on taps.” I do both today,and turn the door knobs with paper towels when available, but a cloth handkerchief (definitely an EDC) when the blow dryers are only available.

    I have added one more preventive measure. I prevent hand shaking as much as possible. If this is during church “greeting time,” I will just tell them that “I don’t want to give you my germs.” They are not offended and are appreciative that you do not wish to infect them. Other times, when it is unavoidable, I wash my hands as quickly as possible making sure to keep my hands away from my face in the interim, or use the sanitizer. Since I have implemented these “socially challenging” measures, I have not gotten the flu, even when it has been rampant in the church.

    Clean hands, without going over the top, is serious business for me. I ended up infecting my hand and getting cellulitis through a ripped cuticle. While the cause was bacterial rather than viral, and the rip compromised the integrity of my skin, it made me realize how important it was to keep my hand flora “in check.” Cellulitis should not be taken lightly.

    You have a great arsenal of natural remedies. I find the Neti Pot a big help as well.

    • Bill Johnson says:

      I had the shot and had no problems the people died had many many health problems. These sites are put here by scared Republicans that will slowly die off from the flu every year

      • H J Dezotell says:

        I have taken ‘C’ and multi-vitamins/minerals for over 50 years. No illnesses or health problems or a doctor or lost time from work. Multi-vitamins, minerals and supplements are important to me for my immune system and whole body health. It is impossible to get all the nutrients we need at the supermarket. I have not had a ‘injection in over sixty years.
        I started taking elevated amounts of ‘C’ and other vitamins in 2006 after reading Dr F R Klenner’s papers and vitamin ‘C’ therapies, curing almost every illness known in this country including insect, drug, and snake toxins and poisons. It is important to eliminate refined sugars, oils, soft drinks, junk, and processed foods. The last eight months I have included, ‘Human, Animal Grade Diatomaceous Earth’. It has been used primarily for the elimination of parasites and animal health.
        All natural mineral, not toxic. Many call it a miracle for what its done for them. Helps Celiac disease, colon and fibromyalgia, ‘pain’, arthritic, ‘Parasites’, colon, eczema, blood pressure, cholesterol, candida, age spots, adrenal, stomach, ‘energy’, heart, diarrhea, drugs, constipation, skin, ‘eyes’, hair and nails, heavy metals and much more, This is why many call diatomaceous earth (DE, dirt, mud) ‘a miracle’.  Works best with 3 to 6 grams vitamin C and without Processed sugar and oils. All ages! Can be found online, and animal feed suppliers and some health stores.
          Do the research:    ‘diatomaceous Earth testimonials’. …dez…

      • Kait says:

        Leaving people who can’t write properly, further proving evidence for the theory of devolution…
        I am a nurse. I get the flu-shot. I have had the flu every year despite that, and so have around 90% of my patients, who all had the flu-shot). I actually watched one guy whose doctor insisted that he should get the flu shot, even though he said that every time he had it he got flu-like symptoms. She told him that was impossible. He got the shot. He immediately presented with flu-like symptoms, including severe fluctuating blood sugars clinically indicative of infection in a diabetic patient. The doctor was convinced. Perhaps it’s not actually the flu he’s getting but rather a systemic reaction to the formaldehyde, gentamicin, mercury, battery hen egg product etc that the vaccine contains ? (This is publicly available info by the way, not hype). Me, I think I’m gonna wear a mask next year…

    • Laura Young says:

      Where my husband works the flu shot was mandatory. If you didn’t get it done THERE – not even at your own doctor’s or pharmacy of choice – you were still punished. Those who did not let the employer jab chemicals and whatnot into their arm are forced to wear a surgical mask at work every day until flu season is over, which is in March, I believe. How’s that for strong-arming your employees. It’s not like he even works in the medical field, he is in law enforcement. Half the guys he knows that got the shot came down with a really bad case of the flu this year anyway. A couple went into pneumonia because now they are doing adverse actions if you call off sick more than 3-days with the flu. Are you kidding me? Even if you got the shot. You not only get docked but you get written up for it. They want people coming to work sick. This is how these guys are getting pneumonia, they are not being encouraged to get healthy before returning to work. Three years and he can retire – it’s not coming soon enough!

      • H J Dezotell says:

        If I am ever ‘forced’ to be “immunized’ I would take 3 to 6 grams vitamin ‘C’, before and after to avoid the shots ‘toxins and prevent the flu. Three to 20 grams depending on health and age, of vitamin C has shown to prevent almost every disease known to man, including sexual transmitted diseases.
        Prevention is still best.

  2. Mike says:

    Why is it that you don’t believe in getting the flu shot but suggest taking a multi-vitamin or a vitamin D supplement? Taking a multivitamin doesn’t do anything but give you expensive urine. You are going off the word of a for-profit company, that is often not regulated on the contents of their product, that their product will give you your daily dose of whatever. Even if a supplement happens to have a particular vitamin/mineral, doesn’t mean your body will accept it. Vitamins/minerals needs other components to be absorbed and used in the body. Additionally, taking too much of a certain vitamin can make you sick. Best stick with a healthy and varied diet.

    I agree 100% on everything else. I don’t recall the last time I got the flu shot. Everyone else that got the shot has been more likely to get sick than me. I’ve taught my four year old that when we are done using a public bathroom to use a paper towel to open the door.

    • James says:

      You’ve swallowed some good propaganda by the anti-supplement contingent out there.
      I’ve supplemented for over a decade with good quality vitamin D and C and guess what? I never get ill!

  3. JdL says:

    Anti-bacterial wipes? Aren’t they completely ineffective on viruses, i.e., flu?

    • Luke Alaska says:

      Use rubbing alcohol, it is effective against everything but clostridium difficile, aka, C-diff. Hand sanitizers must have at least 60% alcohol to be effective!!!

      • Debby says:

        Don’t know HOW effective they are against every microorganism, but a safer option are little cotton pads soaked in witchhazel (an astringent that is safer than chemical varieties). They are effective in cleaning at least the majority of dirt/germs off until you can get to home, with good soap. Lol, but from what I’ve read of the dangers of hand sanitizers, maybe it might be better to carry paper towels soaked in 120 proof, good-grade rum???

  4. DRK says:

    The active ingredient in baby wipes is triclosan. Some ostracized health professionals think triclosan is about as good for you as roundup. Microbes are everywhere. Is a diverse population of microbes on your body protective by occupying space? When you kill all the microbes on your hands, they will quickly be replaced with microbes. These replacement microbes could contain a high percentage of pathogenic microbes. That’s why the filthy kid that hates soap and water doesn’t get sick as often as the kid with a helicopter parent. The diversity of the microbes on a filthy kid is protective by taking up space.

    • Debby says:

      Agree :) There are good bacteria/microflora as well as bad, and the good keeps the population of bad down a bit. Wipe them all out, and there is no defense against the bad versions. Life is largely a balancing act. If I’m in a store with those plastic stylus devices one must use to “sign” with, there is a method I prefer to triclosan … i take a new plastic bag off the “rack” of bags, use it as a glove of sorts to sign, and toss it in garbage. I believe in cleaning ones hands regularly, but with organic soaps that don’t strip everything (including the first two layers of your skin) off in the process.

  5. wildman says:

    As a cancer patient i was advised by my dr not to get the flu shot because of my immune system not being able to process it. So far so good. last year i was only down 3 days with a cold, sorry but with dollar store nite time (cherry flavored) 3shots of it daily i survived so i think i will do it again. you are very right the dirty little kid will sick 3 times less than the one who is in fear of germs. its a proven fact.

  6. Bob Brewer says:

    I work at a hospital in Georgia and we were told we had to get the flu shot or wear a mask, or we would be terminated. Freedom is a thing of the past!

  7. gemini says:

    My daughter worked at a hospital and she was fired for not getting the flu shot. I’m proud of her for standing up to them. She lost her job but they lost a good employee. People are waking up to the madness. Don’t be intimidated by the system. Stand up to them!

  8. T. C. says:

    I have an autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis) and the meds I take for it suppress my immune system. I’ve been advised not to get a flu shot or any other type of shot, like the shingles virus shot.
    The medications I take that just make my life tolerable are toxic enough. I don’t get the flu shot and neither does my spouse. We just practice social distancing. Works for us.

  9. PajamaCEO says:

    No Way – No How – A big deal ado nothing – We all grew up with Flu – It was no Big deal – Why make a big deal of it now.

  10. J.B. says:

    I work for the biggest hospital system in Arizona we have to get a flu shot, wear a mask or get terminated. No freedom

    • Brienna says:

      That’s because you work for a hospital, which is full of people that are sick and have weakened immune systems. The vaccine is for their protection. How the hell do you work for a hospital and not “believe” in vaccines?! I sincerely hope to never be your patient.

  11. gracer says:

    After reading numerous studies last year, I believe vitamin D3 protects against all viruses. That is why I take 20,000 units of D3 every morning. I started with 10,000 units per day about a year ago, but even at that dose, I started taking the flu last fall after being around someone who had recently taken the flu shot and was having flu symptoms themselves. So, I doubled my dose to 20,000 units, my symptoms disappeared and I didn’t get sick last winter as I usually would have. I realize not everyone believes in vitamins, but numerous research studies describe the protective effects of D3, even at lower dosages like 1,000 units per day which is what some of these studies were based on. D3 protects the lungs in the elderly (pneumonia), protects against frailty (bone fractures), Alzheimer’s (dementia, depression), helps with muscle recovery and does many other positive things. It is said that nothing works right in the body without D3. I read that D3 is the natural form and is not remotely as toxic as the synthetic D2 that is added to milk, so I am not really concerned about overdose, being that our bodies create I think 50,000 units of D3 just by being in the sun for 30 minutes. I order the Doctor’s Best brand, 5,000 unit, bottle of 360 softgels. At 4 softgels per day, a bottle lasts 3 months. They are about $10 per bottle currently at SwansonVitamin.com. I take about 30 supplements and powders per day, but I see D3 as the most important for staying well. D3 is a very subtle vitamin, but I believe the research and my lungs did seem to feel more protected within a few days on D3, so I think it’s probable that I have immunized myself against opportunistic infections. Good luck to everyone.

  12. Marilyn says:

    Thank you so much for writing this article. I just dont believe in taking meds or getting flu shots. It’s natural to get sick. My work is currently forcing us to get the shot or wear a mask… They are also singling out every person who does not get the shot and repeatedly asking us why, which is none of there damn business. So thank you for making me feel validated for not listening to mainstream media and getting the shot!

    • Brienna says:

      Your only reason is that it’s “natural to get sick”? Two hundred years ago it was “natural” to die before age 40. Not getting vaccinated puts those around you in danger. When the bulk of a population is immunized, this creates what is called herd immunity. Herd immunity ensures that those who are unable to be vaccinated can still avoid contracting a disease, because all the people around them are immune and will not transmit it to them. When parents refuse to get vaccines for their kids, they make herd immunity impossible and contribute to the spread of disease and child deaths.

      Chemicals are not inherently bad. Chemicals are in everything. Chemicals make everything. There’s chemicals in everything you use, eat, drink, wear, and touch. The majority of these are harmless to you. A vaccine created by highly trained medical scientists and researchers is not the same thing as a vial of battery acid.

      I would like to direct everyone who believes in this nonsense to this article

        “Chemicals are not inherently bad. Chemicals are in everything”… What a crock of modern day garbage are you trying to force feed others to believe!!! Your right chemicals are in everything and that is the biggest problem in modern day medicine and in our food supply. Of course someone like you would never consider the wide scale harm CHEMICALS have played in our lives. Chemicals make MONEY but they just don’t make good common sense.

      • Dan says:

        Interesting … your “Jenny McCarthy Body Count” article makes some pretty compelling statements.

        Here’s an example of another compelling statement: “This year (2014) has seen the number of deaths directly linked to receiving the influenza vaccine rise to over three million worldwide.”

        Now, I just made that “fact” up, I’ll grant you. But for anyone who cares to chase the link in Brienna’s comment above, you’ll note that I cited EXACTLY the same number of verifiable sources to prove my statement as fact. Some of you will catch it immediately, but for those of you who have trouble keeping track, that number is precisely zero.

        Here’s a sourced fact: “No human lives to be 125 years old”. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/other/123-year-old-bolivian-man-oldest-living-person-ever-documented-f6C10934840

        I’d bet money that the 123 year old Bolivian man has never had a flu shot in his life, therefore I can draw the obvious conclusion that people who don’t get the flu shot live the longest, right? True, this “study” uses a single subject and a little bit of presumption on my part, but it’s still a more concise and better sourced than “the United States Anti-Vaccination Movement may be indirectly responsible for at least some of these illnesses and deaths” (a direct, completely unsourced quote from the article in question). The parameters of this statement of “fact” are pretty unclear … when you state that something “may be indirectly responsible” for something else, you pretty much leave it open to interpretation, for example, “Bears pooping in the woods may be indirectly responsible for the pleasant smell of mountain air.” Since it’s true that mountain air smells pleasant, and there’s no way to practically prevent bears from pooping in the woods, this “fact” cannot easily be disproven, ergo it must be true, right?

        The trouble with propaganda is …

  13. Gail Abner says:

    I have a rare genetic immune deficiency diseases called common variable immune deficiency (CVID) and chemical sensitivities. I had to have a pneumonia and tetnus immunization in 1991 as part of my evaluation of my immune system function so insurance would pay for my expensive medication for CVID. My reaction to the “shots” was so severe that I was hospitalized for 3 days. No way am I ever having any immunization again, I almost died. Because I am immunodeficient I always have to be careful about going out. The most important places to avoid are places where people go even when they are sick, places where you stay in one place for an extended period, and places with children. Examples are church, movie theaters, planes, libraries, shopping during busy times, the pharmacy, the doctors office, ect. Avoid these places or go during times when you know that no one else will be there. I make my doctor’s appointments the first appointment of the day. I don’t use chemical wipes or most hand sanitizers. I believe the chemicals including propylene glycol in most of these are worse than the chance of getting a germ on your hands. In the 26 years since I’ve been diagnosed with CVID I have never had the flu. I had 3 children, went to grad school, and we were active in things like scouts and the kid’s sports. I don’t just sit at home hiding from germs. My youngest son still lives with me and he works in a grocery store, he brings home lots of germs. I don’t take vitamin D but have had my blood levels tested and they are in the high normal range. I live in Arizona and try to get out in the sun every day. I think people worry too much about the flu and not enough about the things they should be worried about.

  14. Wayne says:

    Have you even studied science in post secondary mate? Perhaps you should get a degree in something like microbiology before pretending to know what you are talking about… Another Jenny McCarthy spreading nonsense. Btw organic food contains pesticides so why don’t you stop eating that too and the air we breathe is loaded with toxic gases so wear a mask at all times

  15. CATRYNA says:

    Lethal injection is right. That’s how I look at it. Back in the late ’70′s when they had their big Flu debacle, I watched the aftermath. No stinking garbage Flu shot for me. I’m one who contracted Polio from the oral Polio vaccine as a child. There is no longer any trust on my part when it comes to vaccines. All medical procedures have the pros and cons. I recently had to have surgery and was aware of what some of the cons could possibly be. I chose a capable doctor so those cons would be minimized. Everything went according to plan, even my opting out of a blood transfusion. Medical procedure choices should always be left up to the patient. I choose not to vaccinate, because I’m no longer willing to accept the cons.

  16. Johnny B Goode says:

    Drug companies making a killing selling vaccines and finding out that our beloved government officials own stake in those same compaines, priceless. If we are getting the flu shot, why not all the other vaccines nurses and military are required to get? Why stop with the flu shot? Wake up America, your being injected with whatever the US government wants you to be injected with and with no consequences. Flu shot gives people the flu, its a fact, flu shot kills people, its a fact, but no one going back to the mfg and suing. Flu shot full of crap the US government put the entire cigarette industry on trial for, practically shutting down (thank God) the entire industry for containing chemicals like formaldehyde, gentamicin, mercury, but the flu shot? Nope, those chemicals are good for you in the flu shot. Give me a break, you bleeding heart passivists deserve ever last terminal diagnosis you get when in the next 5 years they determine this garbage gives you cancer. Heres an idea for preventing the flu and *all* kinds of other virus, wash your damn hands, stop being a nasty piece of crap. Stay home when your sick, your work place will not crumble with out you. And lastly, God forbid, you get out and exercise daily, regardless of your age, to keep your body in as best a shape possible. Seriously digusting that our country is full of disillusioned, mis-informed, apathetic people who are willing to inject God knows what into their blood stream from a government that cant balance a damn budget so that their work life isn’t inconvenienced and can continue to sit on our butts watching The Voice, eating chips and pretending that the rest of the world isn’t sick and starving around us. Give me a freakin’ break.
