Got your flu shot?



November 01, 2010 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: CSL

In the 70's my mom's flu shot caused detached retnas. Read the link and need I say more?

Oh and could this be another reason for High health care cost? 

Foreign DNA/RNA from animal tissues can wreak havoc in your body and trigger autoimmunity in some people Vaccines may alter your t-cell function and lead you to become chronically ill Vaccines can trigger allergies by introducing large foreign protein molecules into your body that have not been properly broken down by your digestive tract (since they are injected). Your body can respond to these foreign particles in the form of an allergic reaction

The flu vaccine may also pose an immediate risk to your cardiovascular system. One 2007 study published in the Annals of Medicine concluded that:

"Abnormalities in arterial function and LDL oxidation may persist for at least 2 weeks after a slight inflammatory reaction induced by influenza vaccination.

These could explain in part the earlier reported increase in cardiovascular risk during the first weeks after an acute inflammatory disorder."

Add to all those factors the immune-compromising effects of excess sugar in the average American diet, plus inadequate exercise and other lifestyle factors, and you've created the perfect setup for health problems far worse than influenza..


Never again. 1 flu shot and I ended up with heart problems that I never had before. Who know but I will never take that chance again. Nope.

I'm skipping the flu shot, too, this year. From what I understand, it's just a cocktail to protect against the most expected flus.  It's a cookie cutter one-size-fits-all approach to population health management.  And, many doctors believe the flu shot does more long term damage than it helps.

Plus, there is always the slim chance of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Not to mention that our generation will be the first to have shorter lifespans than our parents.  You can't even trust doctors these days.  I have two friends who do pharamceutical sales---ZEROexperience or technical knowledge about the medications---but they are charming and pretty, and their job is to convince doctors to buy their brand of drugs over another. It works.

chk999, you talkin' to me?

I actually try to limit my fluid intake to water only, and avoid bottled water as best I can (mostly because of cost). I like fruit juices,just don't drink them often.  No coffee or energy drinks either.  Yep, water is the best tasting, most healthy, and cheapest.

Any cola or high fructose corn syrup drink is terrible for your health.  We now have studies showing high correlations with diabetes and even gout in men.  Like I said, you can expect to live a shorter life than your parents.  Why? Less physical activity, worse diet, and over medication.

Every medical proceedure has hazards and involves managing risk.  The hazards mentioned above are rare while flu kills tens of thousands every year in the US.  (not to mention billions in lost productivity)

I get a flu shot every year.

How does this equation usually work out? - Big corporations + government = X

99/100 you don't want "X"

I was never skeptical of flu shots until last year.  Almost everyone I know that got the swine flu shot had adverse, who was pregnant at the time, had a very severe allergic reaction.  I actually ended up getting swine flu, but it was nothing compared to what she went through.

Is this reason enough to avoid them as well?

When people get sick, its easy to blame it on the flu shot.  This doesn't necessarily mean the shot actually made them sick.  If that were the case then we would have a huge class action lawsuit about it.  I'm sure its been tried as people are always looking for someone else to blame.

If you don't take a flu shot, not only do you put yourself at risk, you put those you live and work with at risk.
