    Quoted from Cybergoonie:

    Hate to get preachy but flu shots are by far one of the worst things you can do for your body's overall physical & mental health. Many diseases & cancer causing micro bacteria you are injecting yourself with can & will remain dormant for years. Flu shots are manufactured by private corporations that care nothing for your health. Don't drink the government koolaide. They're not your friend. Do some research. Soapbox over...play pinball.

    Quoted from Chisox:

    Most of the time it's usually just a bad cold/bronchitis/strep or sinus infection. When you get the flu you'll know. I had the flu about seven years ago and it's no joke. 104 degree fevers, ice baths and emergency room visits. I've gotten a flu shot every year since.

    Most people who think they get the flu do not. As you stated, it's a horrible virus that usually takes you out for a long time. Having high fevers, body chills, etc.

    Quoted from Jtm3:

    Going on 10 days of this. 102 fever even with meds. Don't even have the energy to play any of my machines. I feel useless. But enough about me, how you doin?

    I had a virus earlier in the year and got a fever for 4 days. I was misreable.

    Hope you get well very soon.

    Quoted from sevenrites:

    When it's dark and gloomy outside for days I counteract it with milk. Seems like Vitamin D helps with depression and balances the mood a little.

    Vit D is very important. Take supplements and skip the milk.

    And your body only metabolizes so much Vit C, and pisses the rest out. So those big 1000MG packets are a waste of $.

    Quoted from mbaumle:

    It's disheartening, isn't it? I've got a degree in environmental science, my fiancé in bio, my very close friend is an engineer, and another close friend is in grad school for physics. We're basically the Big Bang Theory when we all get together. I feel like whenever I hear someone deny science/research/medicine, I'm taken back because so many of my peers wouldn't think to really question it. I've tried to entertain other arguments, but... I can't.

    It isn't science itself that has sometimes causes skepticism, it's the people behind it.

    If your diet consists of mainly vegetables, fruit, grains, and legumes, you'll be good to go. Avoid meat, dairy, sugar, and white grain. That way when you do catch a virus, your body will be better prepared to fight it.
