TBD on Ning


I don't usually watch Jimmy anymore, but saw last nite's show. Dr Mehmet Oz was a guest. As a 'gift', he administered a flu shot to Jimmy on the air.

Does anyone really believe that Jimmy Kimmel has enough power to lead his viewership to run off to get flu shots first thing this morning?

Jimmy later interviewed Melissa Joan Hart and Louie Vito, the two cast-offs from last nite's "Dancing With the Stars" double elimination show, and asked if they had their flu shots. Louie called them "fake" and Melissa made a face, shook her head and didn't answer. Jimmy immediately ended the interview.

i totally respect your point of view. that said, "everyone" isn't and hasn't been immunized over the years. i've never had a flu shot. i don't expect i ever will. there are many more like me. i'm one of those people who don't tolerate synthetics very well, so i would be compromising my well being to do so. the idea of vaccines is great, but the execution, especially of late, is sketchy. there just hasn't been enough clinical trial information released regarding these new ones, either. if given a choice, i'd rather have the flu for a week or 2 than lose my ability to live a normal life ever again....walking, speaking, etc. and besides, a fever is just the body's way of burning off the virus. there are many natural ways to quell those symptoms and return the body to homeostasis.

in lieu of vaccines, i've chosen to ensure i maintain a very strong immune function. prevention is absolutely the best measure to head off disease, and that includes making high quality lifestyle choices (nutrition, rest, exercise, prayer/meditation, water, etc.). i agree with your statement regarding health education -- starting with teaching people high quality choices they make throughout their day to ensure they will continue to optimize their health standard.

Hopefully, only if a few people watch him and "get it", then at least a few lives could be saved. People think that they are impermeable and that "nothing's getting through" their body, but they have no idea what they are doing to others. I understand there are many young parents who have never seen or heard of anyone who personally had diptheria, mumps, measles, polio, tetanus, pertussis, smallpox, etc., and therefore, thing those diseases no longer exist, at least not in the USA.

Many people don't understand that those viruses are still alive and well, and in our environment every day. The reason we've not seen many outbreaks is due to continued insistence by the public health department and personal physicians' offices that everyone continue to be immunized. I think better education of our younger parents regarding public health issues is in order.
