Flu shots are safe and people rarely ever have any adverse reactions to them. Unless of course you are 20 to 25% of people who get the flu shot, then you are likely to have an adverse reaction. Have I stopped making sense yet? Yes, I have, so let's make even less sense out of what researchers are now pitching as a way to motivate more people to get absurd flu shots. A recent study is showing that adverse effects to flu shots can potentially be predicted by taking blood samples.
Did you know the ingredients in a flu shot contain thimerosol (mercury), ethylene glycol, phenol, formaldehyde, aluminum, antibiotics? Most pharmacies are very eager to administer flu shots, but VERY FEW are equipped to handle an emergency allergic reaction.
Flu vaccines, according to the best scientific evidence available today, will only work against 10% of the circulating viruses that cause the symptoms of seasonal epidemic influenza. So, do the theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms?
