Yes the other complication on mercury being that he hates the ADA almost more than the FDA. The ADA being completely complicit in the use of mercury amalgams for many years, and making it malpractice for member dentists to remove them for mercury poisoning concerns.

I don't get why people use this kind of argument so often. So ok if you can't completely avoid a known toxin you should just throw caution to the wind and not care at all how much of it you take in?!

FYI....HIV virus cannot survive more than a few seconds outside the human body.
Most of the people I know...majority of the island... Absolutely refuse to get them and we seem to be doing fine without it, even being a tourist town. Actually, as many have experienced, those who got the shot are the only ones who get sick. I think they just tell people to get that stuff to make money off of everyone's fear of being vulnerable. Thats why theres a "new strain" every year. And I know more about HIV than I'd personally like to. I've had close family die from it because they received tainted blood in a blood transfusion back in the 80s. The Bayer HIV scandal is all too very real, research it some and it will make you cringe knowing that actually happened. Because for them it's about profits not people. Enjoy your flu shot, I'll enjoy eating a healthy balanced diet for immunity support.

It has nothing to do with throwing caution to the wind, it just has to do with how much you dislike mercury. Since a can of tuna has twice the mercury of a flu shot, it's not really logical to eat one while rejecting the other(at least on the grounds of mercury intake). I tend to steer clear of both of them.

Ah ok yes based completely on the sole basis of mercury intake I would agree. Frig if we've got any dental amalgams with mercury we've taken in far more than that.

I don't ever get them. Not only do I never get sick due to an auxiliary spleen, vaccines are unnecessary, and unsafe. You should know what's being put into your body at all times, especially medicine.

2007....otherwise is been good pick for 20 of the 23 years the flu vaccine has been offered....



So to expand on your gambling idea: you wouldn't take a gamble that you had 50-70% chance of winning? When losing could mean being down-n'-out for 3-4 days, possible hospitalization and death?
I'll play devil's advocate.

I've never had the flu shot in my life, and I've also never had the flu that I'm aware of. Never even had a cold in the last few years.

Ever wonder why we don't get colds or the flu in the summer? Short answer: sunlight. In tropical climates, the flu season is monsoon season (no sun).
Adequate vitamin D levels have also been shown to potentially combat cancer.

Scare tactics. That's all that line of thinking is.
