Hate to bring this up because the nuts will flock to the board now, but there's a survey from California that links obesity to swine flue complications. It could be because the obese are more likely to fall into the above categories (diabetes, asthma) but wworth considering taking the vaccine if you are.

Vaccine MAY HELP, but more likely will kill and maim more than it helps.

I just hope that enough research and studies have been made for this discovery so that a lot can be helped.
