    Unfortunately it looks like the swine flu is back. Heard on the radio this morning that sadly there have already been fatalities (in Texas) related to the swine flu (H1N1).

    Me neither. Same with pneumonia vacs. Couldn't pay me to get either.

    But, if you always get a flu vac, you should probably continue to get them.

    Reason, you've never let your body build its own immunity. As the viruses continue to mutate and get stronger you likely will have even fewer defenses.

    Just as with antibiotics, if you take them, you need them. After years of working with wild animals, I've taken way too many antibiotics. Luckily, I've been vegetarian for 30+ years.

    I always make a point of asking doctors, nurses if they get either and interestingly, most say they don't.

    I didn't get the flu shot, got the flu last month, and it was brutal.

    I don't believe in vaccinations, period. If those chemicals were meant to be in our bodies, then we would be born with them.

    Those 'chemicals' as you call them save lives.

    I'm pregnant. I don't believe in vaccines.
    I believe proper nutrition and lifestyle have greater advantages on your health than any man-made pharmaceutical.
    Vaccines have been known to kill adults and children, but never has a healthy lifestyle been a cause for concern.
    Remember: vaccines are chemicals being injected directly into your bloodstream. This bypasses all your body's defense systems that remove harmful toxins.
    All these chemicals go directly to your brain, spinal cord, heart, and every organ in your body.

    Consider this:
    if breastfeeding occurred more often, less and less people would become sick, because they are receiving all their mother's antibodies that formula doesn't have. Breastfeeding is the biological norm, yet it is considered an inconvenience compared to formula feeding. This, however, is far from the truth.
    Breast milk is alive; formula is dead. [​IMG]

    Well, I'm over 50 and I can't remember the last time I had a flu shot or had the flu, or a cold. I believe in keeping my immune system strong and avoiding germs by washing my hands regularly. I also keep disinfectant gel on my desk and carry a small one in my purse. I always wash my hands as soon as I get home. I'm not obsessive about it: it's for a purpose. The main thing is to have a good immune system.
