I’m not vaccinated, are you?

Flu Shot

With winter coming upon us, I figure the government is going to start urging us to get flu shots for our “health”. To tell you the truth, I can’t remember the last time I got a flu shot, I mean, if I did get one, it’s been at least 15 years. I may sound like some hippy conspiracy theorist, but I really feel like flu shots are just government propaganda. Flu vaccinations are just a jumble of chemicals, including mercury, that are believed to cause autism, alzheimers, and ADD.

The flu epidemic is a crock, so is the vaccine. I’ve been reading some articles on the internet and according to this one, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pads the flu death numbers to scare people into getting shots. They lump the rare flu death with the more common pneumonia death and so it seems like 36,000 people die annually from the flu when less than 800 of the deaths in 2002 were from the flu. Some companies just want to make money and it’s amazing how many millions they get annually from flu vaccinations.

I think it’s a bit of a conspiracy, but I’m not that extreme about it. Personally, I haven’t had the flu in eons, I don’t know very many people in the past several years that have had it and I definitely don’t know anyone who has died from it. By the way, my grandfather is 80 years old and he doesn’t get flu shots either.

Think twice about getting flu shots. It’s not that big a threat, and it might be worse for your health if you do in fact get vaccinated.

What they haven’t considered is that, obviously, they thought it was worth the 600 quid they paid on the first day.

Here are some lessons we should learn from the iPhone price cut (after the jump)
