More people living in relatively close conditions, we should expect some infections from that. Since our own agencies that once helped protect Americans are so poorly funded as to be ineffective we can expect to see more food borne illness. Thanks for the reminder, Carrie I need to get my flu shot. We grannies can not take risks with our health.

You've got that right Kit. I always get a flu shot!

Damn, the news just gets worse and worse.
I don't get flu shots for personal reasons.
Maybe, this is another "distraction" to keep us worrying about what's not really being said about the big picture, in the main stream media....

Thanks Carrie.

How much scarier can this possibly get? I already use Germ-X on shopping cart handles, on library books, & anything else I touch. I use it after touching anything, & I wash my hands in hot water for 45 seconds when I get the chance. If somebody in a store sneezes, I haul butt in the opposite direction. - Will this year's flu shot help with this one, or no?

Load up on your Vitamin D3; B12 - methylcobalamine and not the cyanocobalomine; Chlorella and Spirulina.

Another false scare to sell you the big bucks for profit toxic flu jab loaded with lots of good stuff like mercury.

This all sounds very familiar. Remember bird flu, swine flu? Pandemic never happened. I only hope this is not a case of 'the boy who cried wolf' (remember that story?) or we really may be in trouble.

I had my flu shot, the season is all I need. But I think that the Center for Disease Control is like the boy the cried wolf.

We can't outlast Mother Nature. As sure as their will be another massive volcanic eruption, major earthquake in California, or Hurricane in New Orleans, there will be a flu pandemic. We just don't know which of these strains will make the jump.

We are creating new stuff, and that is not necessarily good....
