It's that time of year again. Every other TV ad is preaching "the flu season is here, get your flu shot", and every local drug store along with a majority of the doctors offices are constantly pushing the importance of getting the flu shot. The next step will be the introduction of a new "TYPE" of vaccine that is needed for a new"TYPE" of flu. Last year it was the H1N1, what will it be this year that fills the pockets of the medical industry at our expense, that will maybe have yet a recipient walking backwards from the side effects? http://www.boingboing.net/2009/10/23/woman-with-dystonia.html . I wonder if everyone decided against the flu shot, how many real flu related deaths would've occurred last year? I've had one flu shot in my entire life and I felt like the shot actually gave me the flu. It was almost like it was a flu sample instead of a flu shot. After reading all of the dangerous chemicals in the shot, http://www.flu-treatments.com/flu-shot-ingredients.html. I personally don't take the shot, instead, I just boost my immune system and remember to wash my hands frequently. What do you think about the flu shot? Have you had a bad experience with the side effects?
