    Don't do it, people! Why would you want to be injected with a poisonous c0cktail of chemicals and disease when your ambition is to stay healthy? And why do you think they are free? Someone is paying for them... the pharmaceutical companies are profit-driven corporations. Ultimately it is the government that pays for them and, through smiley-faced intermediaries, entices you to voluntarily (in most cases, mandatory in others) get injected. Why do they do this? Government doesn't care about human life... they've sanctioned, defended and funded the murder of 56 million babies since 1973. Why would you get the flu shot?

    Why would someone get a flu shot? Probably because they have some understanding of biology and scientific methodology (spoiler: the bible does NOT equal science), and they understand that vaccines work to stimulate the production of B lymphocytes against the antigens (read: virus) in the vaccine.

    And the mercury stimulates what?

    Are you referring to thimerosal, which is only used in a few flu vaccines? That stimulates nothing, it's a preservative that has been consistently found to be harmless. I'm not sure why I'm trying to explain science to someone so delusional they think that Agenda 21 is a binding and/or enforceable UN resolution. Clearly processing information is not your forte.

    Oh, so mercury is harmless. Then the EPA is wrong when it says the proper response to a broken curly-Q light bulb is to declare a hazmat situation because of the exposed mercury. Just think how much money they could have saved if they had only asked you first. And I suppose that you are an example that eating lead-paint chips off the wall never hurt nobody?

    Clearly the terms "parts per billion"(or parts per million) and "dosage" don't mean anything to you. Thimerosal is present in only a few flu vaccines, and the average mercury level is about 25 parts per billion in a .5 milliliter dose. That is incredibly small, since I doubt you know how much volume a mL is. Go look up what the FDA says on the matter, since you're willing to trust the EPA. Conversely, the lightbulb you describe has a MUCH HIGHER level of mercury in it, hence why it is hazardous. And of course eating lead paint chips is harmful (see my description of how dosage if toxicity works above, same reasoning given the lead levels). How else do we explain people like you?

    "Forcing the issue" of vaccination is what eradicated polio and smallpox in this country. Thank you both for providing evidence that the US lags when it comes to having a scientifically literate electorate. This explains why US citizens are more likely to accept things like young-earth creationism and the idea that vaccines cause autism. Spoiler: the study that made that claim in the 90s fabricated it's evidence.

    Shall we take just a moment to visit the polio vaccines given to children over an eight year period, from 1955 to 1963, that purposefully contained SV40... simian virus 40... the cancer virus! This was buried deep within the CDC's website until "truthers" publicized the CDC's admission... and the CDC then removed it. (It's the internet... it's still out there.) Many medical professionals became aware of this, and the CDC officially acknowledged this in 1960... but they kept quiet and kept pushing these polio vaccines containing cancer viruses to millions of people in the US, the UK, Australia and the USSR. It seems that so much of science is a cover-up to protect an ideology... the Population Bomb, Global Cooling, Global Warming, Macro-Evolution... and on and on.

    Wasn't purposeful, it was later found in the monkey kidneys used in the development of the vaccine. This is why peer-review and retesting are important to the scientific process. Also, according to a 2004 US national Cancer Institute study, SV40 is shown to cause rumors in animals, but the jury is still out on humans. Any other pseudoscientific claims, or is it out of your system?

    What? Not even going to try to defend cancer-causing polio viruses allowed by the CDC to infect millions of people? Maybe those people just deserved it... wouldn't you say?

    What's there to defend? There was no malice in intent, and the cases abroad had the same error. This sort of thing happens when you rush something that is new, especially when that something was proven to be capable of eradicating two deadly diseases. Or would you prefer smallpox? Also, millions weren't given cancer, but then again you're impervious to peer-reviewed studies and facts, so I won't bother reiterating my previous post. I'm guessing you have a science "degree" from Glenn Beck's university, because trying to explain how science works to you is about as effective as yelling at a table.

    Don't get the flu shot. We need a good virus for population control. Survival of the fittest.

    Always with the ad hominem attacks. Sound and fury... signifying nothing. Typically means you can't argue the facts... as is the case now.

    I still think the flu vaccinations are dangerous and it is all a crap shoot as to the quality of any given dose/lot/manufacturer......below a link to list of US manufacturers.

  • Puddin TaneJanuary 22, 2014 - 2:04 pm

    It's not dangerous, but it is a crapshoot, as the CDC tries to predict which flu strains will be prevent in a given year, and they only prepare for those strains due to limited resources. That's why we have outbreaks certain years, because we didn't inoculate against the right strains. As Bill Nye used to say: "now you know..."

    Meant to say "prevalent" not "prevent"
