" epidemiological studies are a complete waste of time and money"...


Yep!!!...

Medicine is nothing more than a fuking waste of time!!!...







THREAD DRIFT:

A HUGE favorite of mine and I see it OFTEN on the news is when someone THANKS the Lord, when in fact it was modern SCIENCE and MEDICINE (and the Medical staff that administered it) that saved them, their family member, or their friend...

Personally I think it is a gamble to not get a flu shot if you regularly find yourself in close contact with others. Teachers, medical workers, retail, if you fly frequently etc. The list could go on and on. I guess it is about personal beliefs and tolerance for risk.

I got the flu about 20 years ago. I was really sick for about a month or more. Lost a bunch of muscle weight. At that point in my life I was climbing really hard. Took me at least 6 months to get back to where I was before the flu.

I get the shot every year now as I have kids and also are forced to fly frequently for work.

Tioga, I have you beat in education but all of it was in biology/chemistry after college business degree. You do have a point, but you only get half the picture. You mixed with Reiley could make a happy medium that makes scientific sense.

Oh by the way, last time I gotten one of the "vaccines" (18 years ago) my arm got swollen like a log and I felt I was gonna meet my maker finally...the "doktor" crook (medical leech) said I was probably allergic to horse (or mouse, don't remember exact animal...just glad it wasn't a "chimp") "protein". Have fun...then, something goes wrong, many years later...a little error in your DNA somewhere...;) have fun with unnecessary substances injected in ya and being lab rat sheeple, there's no help for that. But this is America, where you have to have medical approval to take a crap, I mean...I heard it's been proven to be healthy via extensive medical research funded by (fat) taxpayers money (and laxative manufacturers)! Here

Makes me wonder what you needed the advice of a doctor for if you are so educated already and distrust doctors...

I got it the first time at age 22 in Taiwan. I was young and fit. I thought I was going to die of starvation as I lay in my bed thinking of things because I was too weak to walk to get food. None was in the building.

The second time it hit me while I was in my 50's and it had me dry cough up blood at 1am which scared the crap out of me and put me down for almost 6 weeks. I was conditioning for a marathon at the time and thought I was in great shape.

So you can get it more than once, and now that I'm gettin' old I get the shot because it could kill a guy.

Strange, isn't it?

I have intelligent, perfectly reasonable friends who, on the topic of vaccinations, becomes babbling idiots who spew factual nonsense and quote ridiculous studies that the found on the "Internet" about vaccinations.

The Flat Earth Society is alive and well.

Doctors cause, on average, 80,000 accidental deaths per year in the US alone.

That's just deaths.

I don't trust them, unless I have no other recourse.

"FACTS TO PONDER :

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

(Calculation) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services"
...




Be curious to see how many of those 120,000 were due to FLU SHOTS...

???...

I remember the anti Malaria vaccine I was given.

"Werner, 1 in 1000 or so immediately die from the side effects within an hour from this vaccine".

"No sh!t" ????? LOL

"Yep No sh!t"

I ask "How do you tell if you're allergic or not"

"Just take it aszhole and in one hour you'll know" I was told.

LOL ......

I used to be scared of needles too, guys. If you are really brave though, they'll give you a lollipop.

So I just had my annual reinstallment of my illuminati chip. Now I'll probably start farting chemtrails. But at least I'm less likely to get the flu--seems like a fair trade.

I figure I am the guy with the best immune system by far, seeing as how my immune system is destroying my nervous system al the time…

so a little flu won't kill me

Every year.

No reason not to, unless you have an allergy to any of the vaccine components.

Getting influenza sucks really bad.
