Swine Flu Death in FL

That is odd. Lady returning from a trip in Califorina contracted Swine Flu and died in Florida yesterday. Something to keep an eye on.

I'd read the comments below the article (especially the first two) & also do a bit of research before running to get the vaccine like a sheep. Fear is the greatest selling tool there ever was. Also, keep in mind that (as with West Nile Virus) many deaths that were attributed to Swine Flu turned out to be from other causes.

I am wondering if I can smash a few CFL lightbulbs for my needed mercury, or do I need to run out and get my mercury injection, uh I mean immunization.

I knew when I posted about getting a flu shot some knuckleheads would comment.

Did you all get your MMR, Polio, etc vaccines when you were young? You're probably already full of mercury. Eat fish? Ditto. Live within a thousand miles of coal-fired powerplants? Etc. The flu kills thousands in this country every year. The vaccine? Not so many.

I will get a vaccine for anything that I can. Flu shot... every year, good move!
