Yes, it is nearing that time of year again, the time of year when people rush out, stand in long lines, push and shove to get to the front, and spend their hard earned money on something they may not really need.  No, I am not referring to Christmas or Hanukkah; I am talking about flu season. It is in the upcoming months that people forego all rational thinking and make a mad dash to the corner Walgreens to get their annual flu shot, solely from fear tactics put out by the media.  Interestingly enough, it was just a few weeks ago that the World Health Organization said the H1N1 pandemic was over.

Dr. Mercola, whom many of you may be familiar with, wrote an interesting article regarding the matter.  It was around this time last year that he was talking about the H1N1 vaccine, and the topic is back again, perhaps with a revenge.  The World Health Organization revealed a list of their pandemic advisors, revealing at least five people that influenced the phase six declaration did have ties to vaccine makers. So what does this mean? These individuals received money from the vaccine companies and then had influence in declaring a pandemic.  Does anyone else see this as a conflict of interest?  For a list of those involved visit: Natural News

I have a lot more to say about this topic, as many people will soon be making a decision to get their annual flu shot not only for themselves but also for members of their family, and I feel it is important that people are educated on the topic before injecting themselves with something they may not really need, not to mention may not even be effective.  I am a medical student, so i have patients to see, but this discussion is not over.
