More News To Cause Flu Worries

The morning news had this story about flu shots.
No very encouraging, especially with flu season just around the corner. These scientists do nothing with all their studies except cause worry. There is so much confusion out there. Is a flu shot good or no? I don't think anybody knows for certain, just like they don't know if MS drugs work.

I have something weird happening with my eye,s so I can't type very much
Hope it's only temporary because it really is a pain in the ass.

I've really had it with the media and their flu pandemic story... Ever since this swine flu, h1n1, whatever today's buzzword is for it, hit they've turned this country into a cowering mass of paranoid germaphobes...

The truth is that instilling fear into the masses creates ratings for the TV stations and viewers for their sponsors (most of whom, happen to be drug companies. Hmm?). The people panic and continue to tune in and act like little sheep, doing everything that the newsman tells them.

Then there's the whole tie-in with the pharmaceutical companies and their flu shots... It's all about money, not caring for people. We have an immune system that typically fends off the flu, has for years. They just found a way to cash in on it, like they do everything else...

Hi Carole,
We have not had a flu jab since 2006, when we had flu 3 x after flu jabs.
And horrible flu too, quite put me off doing it again.
Hope your eyes are better now.
