Right now, we can survive influenza with proper rest, etc

This is the best point made. With modern technology -there is little reason to worry if you do get the flu(and since surviving it is really not hard these days - one could argue you are better of getting it for immunity purposes).

The only people who should worry are those who have lung issues(elderly, maybe people on chemo, copd, etc etc) who then get pneumonia easily. Otherwise healthy people can easily overcome the flu at home and in a pinch - a few bags of iv at the old ER will put your right back in shape(and this is really only needed since people don't drink enough water when they are feeling good - never mind when they are sick).

But people just would rather poison themselves than have to be uncomfortable for a few days.

Flu shots are ineffective at best, dangerous at worst.

I have found one tablespoon of Epson salt will rid the gut of the virus (that is where it lurks) and flush infected fluid from the body. This is what the Spanish did during the 1915 Flu Epidemic.

I agree with your reasonable stance

When trying to speak with the predominant medical community and their followers, I always point out that the PDR and vaccine inserts offer greater reasons to research and apply natural remedies for their safety record alone when compared to the known risk-factors of ALL vaccines with so little success to commend them. Usually, things get quiet; or quietly agreeable.

No

If my body feels the need to purge, so be it.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

True that - getting the flu once a year would save me

I had to get one in order to

I had to get one in order to work at a hospital(back in march). To be honest, I don't think I've had any negative side effects or anything so... I don't know. I'd say only get one if you're required to.

the thing about the flu is I never get it... like whenever I get sick it's always bronchitis/some sort of bacterial chest infection(about once a year). so I haven't really noticed any benefits from the shot either

I've never had one myself

but my kids and I probably will this year after we all got sick last year.

Flu Shots

Before you make the mistake of getting flu shots, do some research.
There is NOTHING in a flu shot that is good for you. Read the article below

Last time I got the flu

Was the last time I got the flu shot. Required while in the military. Haven't had one in seven years and haven't been sick since.

Ditto.

Basic training in the winter of SC while having a 104 fever was NOT fun.

Not since 1976

In Basic at Lackland AFB. Sicker'n schidt I was. I've had the flu since (rarely), but not quite as bad as the Ford Vaccine caused.

Think Piers Morgan will get the flu shot again?

"Just two days after it was reported that GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix H1N1 swine flu vaccine has actually caused a whopping 800 cases of narcolepsy in children according to Reuters, a major publicity stunt for the efficacy of the flu shot as presented by CNN has crashed and burned." http://2012thebigpicture.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/piers-morg...

As Piers Morgan himself said to one of his guests, "We both saw him put that thing in my arm. And within 10 days I've been struck down." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5SQPPvR-JA&feature=youtu.be

Centers for Disease Control

CDC says that the flu shot contains thimerosal.

Thimerosal is 50% mercury.

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/thimerosal.htm

indeed

I have heard that they put all sorts of nasty stuff into those vaccines. They may have originated with a pure intent, but if so have long ago been subverted by economic interest.

If anyone tried to demand that I receive an unwanted substance injected into my body, it would be fight time.

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

Of all the shots and vaccines

Of all the shots and vaccines that you can take, the flu shot is the one that is most thoroughly proven to do absolutely nothing good. Meanwhile we keep hearing more and more from people who believe their problems were caused by vaccines in the first place. I don't see how anyone can logically evaluate this situation and choose to get the shots. But then, that's the point. The shots don't appeal to logic, they appeal to irrational, manufactured fears.

Not for me!

One of my buddies has gotten the flu shot the past 2 years... I chose not to. He has gotten the flu the past two years as well, while I have not. I don't think he will be getting it this year!

Have never had a flu shot..never will. I also don't get vaccinations nor does my family. But I did get the flu once 18 years ago was not a good feeling.

I have NEVER had the flu. I

I have NEVER had the flu. I have never gotten the shot for it either. Its like, why should I get the shot if I never get sick from it?
Plus I dont get sick very often at all anyway.

What the hell? How does one

What the hell?

How does one go for more than a couple years without at least a mild flu?

I dont know, you tell me why

I dont know, you tell me why I am so darn healthy and rarely get sick.(I actually do know, I think, at least partly why and it has to do with how my brain is that causes increased immune reaction, but this kind of thing is because of how I am and isnt "normal" because its not part of the general population)
I do have to credit properly washing my hands all the time as part of it though.
Seriously, one time I was sick for 12 total hours period. It came on in about 10 minutes and I went through chills and what seemed like fever and all that and it was then gone after 12 hours. Was a bit tired for a couple days after that but was otherwise completely fine.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I have not had flu for many years.

Got a bad case back in the 1970's. I got mononucleosis about 19 years ago. A few colds since then, but no more flu.
Your immune system is regulated by vitamin D which is produced by your hide when it is exposed to sunshine when the sun is high in the sky. The skin takes cholesterol from the blood and converts it to vitamin D.
The sun is not high enough in the sky in winter, so you have to supplement to remain healthy. That is why people get the flu and colds in the winter.
I have been supplementing with vitamin D year round for several years. When I feel a cold coming on, I take 50,000 IUs of D3 for three days and it knocks the cold right out. Otherwise, it is 10,000 IUs in summer and 20,000 IUs per day in winter and spring.
Vitamin D is important for lots of things beside preventing flu. Read up on it. The U.S. government recommendation of 400-600 IUs per day is laughably too low. It is not enough to make a difference.
Anyone who wants it, can have my flu shot. I have never taken one. I remember the swine flu vaccine debacle when Ford was president. No, thank you.

[F]orce can only settle questions of power, not of right. - Clyde N. Wilson

But...

Everyone knows that the sun is evil and will give you cancer and cholestoral is evil and will clog your arteries and that the flu is seasonal because it is and you should get your flu shot becuase that is what season it is. Not getting your flu shot is like not giving presents for Christmas...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
