I'm guessing you're pretty awfull to look at - you're probably a fan of McDonalds, watch the Flintstones on TV, don't take a bath regularly, too fat to walk around, and use lots of plastic bags when you go shopping at Safeway. You probably also collect sexually explicit movies of kids, belong to the Teamsters, and feed your kids plenty of processed foods and sugar, and you feel cancer is just a very unlucky occurance and has nothing to do with lifestyle.
Well good luck stand in line for your flu shot, even though there are proven methods to prevent it, watch TV and watch the drug ads, don't believe their disclaimers and you'll live to 45 maybe 48.
I'm already 55 years-old you dingbat. By the way - I'm healthy as can be - never been hospitalized. My daughter is 27 years old, just graduated from medical school, and recently hired as an internal medicine physician at a private practice on the mainland. My son is a civil engineer on Oahu - making good money, happily married, with two kids, and he owns his own house. Both my son and daughter were excellent athletes all throughout their youth and teen years, but they were even BETTER at academics - both earned significant amounts in scholarship money. And, yes, I did feed them McDonalds food, manapua, Spam, and Vienna Sausage. And yes, I also let them watch tons of television - especially Ninja Turtles. AND YES, they both get their annual flu shots. By the way, dingbat, did I mention to you that I am preparing for the Honolulu Marathon? I ran my first one, 5 years ago, at age 50. I clocked in at 3hrs and 9 minutes. I'm gonna go under 3hrs this year for sure. And I carb load with Panda Express fried rice, chow mein, orange chicken, and fried vegetable rolls.

Goodbye Hippie!!

You gave too much personal information, much like an underaged MySpace user.

You have just enough knowledge to be dangerous to yourself.
You simple lesson only works if you know exactly what virus you are dealing with and if it is a virus which does not mutate quickly.
Flu viruses are notorious for mutating. The annual flu shot is a shotgun combination of all the strains the docs "think" might show up next year.
They admit they are usually wrong.
And is there any evidence that US citizens get the flu more than people from africa even though Americans probably get flu shots 10 to 1 more than Africans? I doubt it.
I completely understand vaccines for polio, chicken pox, maybe HPV. But I think the corporations are taking real science and expanding it into the flu virus area with no proof that it does anything.
I think it's all a scam.
Show me some proof that FLU vaccines actually have helped?
So you're saying rabies vaccine is a ploy?

And small pox vaccine is useless?

I understand the H1N1 virus affects mostly the young and not the old. The reason being it's very similar to the Spanish flu virus from the early 20th century, so those people are afforded more protection and don't get sick as often.

This is why people like you should do more research and be more open minded instead of stopping where your beliefs end.

Why? Can't explain better than you already have?

Articulation has never been your weak point. Comprehension on the other hand, takes a back seat to your personal agenda.
