Massive Flu Outbreak

[ Edited ]
19 replies 186 views Edited Jan 8, 2013

Recently I had heard on the new that this flu season is going to be the worst in a decade with 41 states(most likely to rise) reporting a massive flu outbreak and I think some reporting even deaths and Extreme flu cases like the swine flu. They say get a flu shoot to help protect you from it but I don't trust the flu shots one bit. They said something about every sneeze or cough you had might be cause from the flu IDK I have to do more research on it. But I don't want to get a flu shot, I am finding different ways to help protect myself form getting the flu. As a matter a fact I think I only gotten sick one time last year, and I hardly get sick in the Winter time only in the spring or summer time months. Anyway what are you doing to help protect you form this massive flu bug this season, are you getting a flu shot?

Just another scare on behalf of the media for those whom always listen to what their television and their so called experts tell them.

Which in turn will lead to a scare on behalf of some americans whom will probably take any course of action as long as america tells em how and what to do.  Leading to a boost in our economy in one way or so. 

Doomsday didnt work but america had nothing to do with tHat.

Wash your hands correctly. Washing your hands goes along way. I didn't get sick at all last year. Don't touch public restroom door handles. Public restrooms are nasty and avoid all costs if you can. Washing your hands is the trick.

I also fell like it's another load of **bleep** from the media again. Some even say the shooting at Sandy Hook was another way for the Media to make big head line news about it. Like they think they know everything and made seem like it was a national tragedy while hundreds of people die from gun violence everyday in America. I mean God Bless those kids but they act like they there acting like this never happend before and stuff like that, how long have they been takling about Gun control here in the U.S. I mean after all the shootings we had the past decade that should of been a wake up call then. Anyway back on topic.

Never had a flu shot, never plan on having one.

Another tip:  Brush your tongue each day.  Helps a lot.  I do it each day.

I know people who get them and don't get sick, i know others who get them and get the flu.  I don't get them and I usually odn't get the flu but will catch a head cold or 2 each year.  I end up in and out of random people's cars all day long and at some point I'll rub my eye or something and BAM here comes the cold virus lol.
