That’s funny. Or, not really… WHO dictates the information going out to the public. British and Norwegian “official” information about the swine flu and the flu shot for it is exactly the same, word for word. All except the language it’s written in. I guess the same goes for “the whole world”…
They never say anything about immune boosting activities like getting enough sun light, eating the right food, avoiding bad stress (working out is good stress) and physical activity. All they say is “get the flu shot”.
BTW, this flu gives milder sickness than ordinary flu (and the ones who have so far died in Norway were already sick with other illnesses, but media “forgets” to tell it…)
Vaccination is still voluntary here in Norway, so I don’t even have to say “no thanx”, I’ll just not meet when the shots are given out. Even if I’m pregnant and thus in a risk group (because we get reduced lung volume in 3rd trimester).
I’ll continue with the good stuff; eating fruits and veggies (and other good stuff) and off course weight training.
It is not a coincidence that the public health scares like the flu and the various designer diseases have walked hand in hand with shocking levels of nutritional illiteracy.The other day I met a doting mother of a two year old asthmatic kid who had given him the flu shot.She lovingly stirred four teaspoons of sugar in the feed bottle and gave him flour,sugar and margarine based treats for snacks!But the Authorities will never promote fruits,veggies,sunshine and physical activity.Come to us!we’ll give you a shot and solve your problems.You can continue eating crap and acquiring more exotic diseases!
