Why this paranoia about drugs?

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.

(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...

Seeing this thread make the rounds again reminds me that it's time for me to get my annual flu shot.

"Man dies from accidental death caused by a Flu shot"...

To the Newswoman:

"That damned Doctor KILLED my friend when he MISSED and hit him in the EYE with the Flu shot"...

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.

But nope ..

I see that Mcarthhy twit is now shilling for smokeless nicotine..

If she were standing in front of me naked and it was HER, or the flu shot???...

Yep, I'd do her.

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 timeÖ

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.

Very interesting article by a woman who did NOT get childhood vaccines, and her experience.

If youíve never had these illnesses, you donít know how awful they are. I do. Pain, discomfort, the inability to breathe or to eat or to swallow, fever and nightmares, itching all over your body so much that you canít stand lying on bedsheets, losing so much weight you canít walk properly, diarrhea that leaves you lying prostrate on the bathroom floor, the unpaid time off work for parents, the quarantine, missing school, missing parties, the worry, the sleepless nights, the sweat, the tears, the blood, the midnight visits to the emergency room, the time sitting in a doctorís waiting room on your own because no one will sit near you because theyíre rightfully scared of those spots all over your face.
