When enough reputed Doctor come forward as Dr. Miller has and say that Flu shots are not supported by any research and in fact are dangerous then we may wake up as a nation. We will come to understand the Fear Factor played over and over again by the Pharmaceutical industry is creating a market and costing us billions of dollars. The country is reeling over health costs and the health system failing due to its cost and much of the money is going to all those high profile drug companies who say they are doing good when in fact they are only doing good to their own pocketbooks.

Here is a statement I found in Dr. Mercola's fine weekly magazine.http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/12/09/prominent-physician-advises-against-flu-shots.aspx

This is a talk about vitamin D and how it helps in many ways to strengthen us to fight disease including the flu.

Dr. Donald Miller, a cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington, recommends avoiding the flu shot and taking vitamin D instead. According to Dr. Miller, “Seventy percent of doctors do not get a flu shot.”

Health officials say that every winter 36,000 people will die from it. But the National Vital Statistics Reports compiled by the CDC show that only 1,138 deaths a year occur due to influenza alone -- more than 34,000 of the “36,000″ flu deaths are actually pneumonic and cardiovascular deaths.

There is also a lack of evidence that young children benefit from flu shots. In fact, a systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. But there is also a risk of harm from the flu vaccine itself, particularly from the mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde it contains.

The Drug companies should be forced to repay governments for their inappropriate touting of flu shots as a preventative. The FDA should not allow the Drug Companies to put ads on Television. America is one of the few countries in the world that allow Drug ads on TV.
