  1. In 1999, the CDC said the most effective protection against flu was with thorough hand washing. At that point there were fewer flu shots available so this was the recommendation. Flu vaccines contain 24 micrograms of thimeresol and there is a greater risk of Alzheimers among seniors who receive more than four shots per decade. Also there is an increased risk of miscarriage. To say that a person may miss work doesn’t justify having these chemicals injected into our bodies. I know it’s not geshmak feeling ill, but PLEASE be aware that these shots can have serious side affects. Take adequate amounts of Vitamins C and D. May Hashem watch over all of us

  2. “A theory linking flu shots to a greatly increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease has been proposed by a U.S. doctor whose license was suspended by the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners. Several mainstream studies link flu shots and other vaccinations to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease and overall better health.” source: http://www.alz.org Posting false scaremongering information such as that contained in the first post is horribly irresponsible. C”v someone may read it, believe it, not get inoculated and DIE from the flu. This is “lifnei iver” in the worst and most dangerous sense. Please be responsible and don’t allow such dangerous and wrong medical advice to be posted.
