I'm an Rn and I never get the flu shot. Never get the flu either.
Just a few days ago there were some morning disc jockies talking about how they had all got the flu this year. This is spite of having the flu shot.
There was also a story on the local news about people having gotten the flu even though they got the flu shot.
Then the "expert" comes on. And tells us all that the very best thing you can do to avoid the lfu is to get a flu shot.
What a bunch of unmitagated crap.
Here's how to avoid the flu:
1. Wash your hands often. And keep your hands away from your face. Do not use antibacterial hand wash. Use regular soap and water.
2. Diet diet diet. If you eat crap, your immune system is going to be compromised and you're going to get sick if you are exposed.
3. Do not eat: Sugar, wheat, margarine, vegitable oils, processed fooods.
I'm so sick of "the best way to avoid the flu is to get the flu shot". What garbage. Sometimes I am ashamed to be a part of the medical industry.
