Flu Shots - information you should know

"Are you going to get the flu shot? 

Do you get it every year? 

Are you questioning whether it is worth it?

It is a known fact that thousands of people die from the flu every year.  Some of those people had received a flu shot and some had not. 

Here are some facts about the flu shot.

1.  It does not stop you from getting the flu.  But if you do get sick your symptoms might not be as bad. 

2.  It contains many preservatives like, Aluminum, Thimursel which is derived from mercury and is toxic to the nervous system, and other toxic preservatives. 

3.  After you get a shot your immune system is compromised for a week or so while your body builds up antibodies against the flu.  If you are exposed to a bacteria or virus during this time you will get sick. 

4.  There is no way the companies that are making the flu shot know what the flu viruses will be in the coming year.  It's just their best guess.

So...instead...take your Vitamin D and multivitamin; drink plenty of water; get some good sleep and exercise to keep your immune system strong."
