what do u think of swine flu ?
and did u know that in Ireland they plan to vaccinate every one by Autumn ?

I don't think its such a big deal if you're healthy, its just a push to sell vaccines and tamiflu. If you're Irish i would definitely refuse to have any toxic vaccine crap injected into myself.

It's the same as any other flu, people just make a big deal out of nothing.

I think its stupid its speading. Everyone who has it stay inside their house for two weeks with no contact with anyone else. PROBLEM SOLVED.

And noope, But I wanna move to Ireland now! (My ginger hair is more common then and I can get a free vaccine yay)

music rox!!
i'm not freaked out about it, but i still take precautions

its kinda scary!

Influenza kills over $33,000 people every year in the United States. So far the swine flu has less than 100 people. The media is making a big deal out of it and reporting every death like anohter will follow right after it. It's actually no more deadly than the regular flu. Wash your hands and cover your moth when you sneeze and you're just fine.

Piggin' awful?

I don't really care about it and to be honest i want to catch it soon and get over it because its just a flu like any other...but i think there is a very big chance it will mutate in the winter of this year into a much nastier virus that will cause more problems for people with low immune systems etc. I don't mind the word pandemic because it just means around the world...but so is the cold.

Me personally? I don't think it's much to worry about. But Miss Piggy would strongly disagree.

It's a load of horseshit that the media is causing to be overdramatic. Think of it this way:
The media is fueled by the quantity of viewers it has, and with competing news stations, you have a fluctuation of viewers from one station to the other. Once the swine flu came about, a few news stations picked up on it, and since more people are interested in scary or horrible news, these stations picked up quite a lot of viewers, thus bringing in higher ratings. Well, then the competing stations realized that their viewers weren't paying as much attention to them, so they decided to make the story seem a lot more dreadful than it actually is. They did this so all of the viewers would watch their station instead; so on and so forth until the entire world is now scared shitless.

And I bet you that the only reason why Phaedra believes the virus will mutate over the winter and become stronger is because he/she has been influenced by what the media puts out.

It's new so it's unknown and people fear the unknown plus the media has hyped it up but at the end of the day it's still flu, people get flu every couple of years and the majority have absolutely no complications with it.
They offer flu shots every year anyway and people who have them still catch the virus, I don't think it's really going to help and I don't think it helps the human immune system to strengthen.
I think people should stop worrying about it so much, if it's going to mass spread into a pandemic then it will anyway, three-four days feeling low and it's over, plus there's an immunity.
Be aware of it, take care of yourself if you're feeling low, seek medical help if you have complications but don't be so paranoid about it.

The voice of semi-reason â„¢
It's FLU and it causes less deaths than most other types of flu... It is another case of mass media fed panic.
