    Unless one of the susceptible groups like the very young, very old, first responder, or can't afford to get sick types, I'd avoid flu shots. So long as there's ANY question about their safety, why risk it.

    I don't believe health comes in in a pill or vial.

    Health doesn't. Cures do. :)

    But with those chemical "cures", you are more likely to fix one problem and cause another.

    Yes, but that's true of just about everything. Water's healthy for us as well, but too much can kill (water intoxication it's called.) Same with medicine proper, it's all basicly poison, a little can cure, too much will kill or harm. Key isn't avoidance, or use, but moderation.

    That's my philosophy. If anything, we have too much health care in the US. The most common reason listed for doctor visitations is to seek treatment for colds and the flu. Ridiculous. You don't need a doctor to recover from that.

    My gut fauna has been evolving for 25 years. That was the last time I took anti-biotics (or saw a doctor). I haven't had perfect health during that time span, but I've let my body heal itself without chemical aid. In the long run, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger (unless you rely on constant pharmaceutical tinkering).

    I got the flu when I was about 11 years old, then again when I was in my 20s and again when I was 30 something.

    Every time it absolutely sucked and totally put me out of commission for days as I wallowed in complete misery.

    Screw that!

    I got the flu shot a few weeks ago.

    I got a flu shot because it was a requirement for a job I'm doing at the hospital. I've never had one before. I didn't have any kind of side effects except that my arm was a little sore that night and the next day. I was a little concerned about it making me sick because that is one side effect, but I was fine thankfully. :)
