    Nor do I. But I do trust my personal physician, and if he recommends sticking something in me, I'm going to trust him, as I always have. He'll be the one doing the sticking, not "some big agency."

    There's plenty of pathogens to go around, and the reason snot-nosed kids are so snotty is because there are so many things we can't or don't prevent. Things like mumps, measles, and even flu do NOT need to be experienced if we can prevent them.

    Just googled this up for you.

    I don't think anti-vaccine people are neanderthals. They are parasites playing the odds. The mentality is that there is no need for them to be immunized because everyone else will.

    Me. I'm old enough to have been in the first generation to get polio shots. It was a common thing in the 1950's to know people in "iron lungs" (youngeer posters won't know what the hell I'm referring to, lucky for them). When reminders of the reasons for vaccinations disappear then it is easy to discount the need for them.

    Ok, i'd rather be a neanderthal than a parasite. You all know why the neanderthals died out, right? They refused to get vaccines!
    phsstt!

    Wrong. My mentality is taking vaccines on a regular basis does much more harm than good. Like any body process, the immune system needs to be used or it will grow weaker.

    Obviously there is a difference between getting immunized against a life-altering, or life threatening, disease like polio(which I support), and taking a yearly flu shot(s).

    I'm with guru on this. I have already stated in public that I openly dare any swine flu virus to invade my body.

    Holy shit! And just what mechanism is that you think the vaccine process initiates if it isn't the immune system???

    Isn't that like saying lifting weights makes us tired, so we shouldn't do it if we want to get stronger? The end result of the immunization is that we are stronger against THAT particular germ, but the rest of our immune system returns to normal after a while. That's how I read it, anyway.

    No, that's closer to what you and gh are saying.

    My main point is you have an immune system for a reason. Getting sick occasionally helps keep it in tip-top shape. Being vaccinated regularly against things like the flu serve only to weaken the overall protection it gives to your body.
