Flu and the Skeptic

I’ve always been one of those skeptics that never got the flu shots. I’ve been healthy and I take my vitamins. I also have some of the same allergies as my dad and because of that, I have never had a flu shot. However, after listening to Dr. Katz on viruses and germs, he gave me something else to think about. In 1918, millions of people died from the Spanish flu all over the world. Did you know we have never cured that flu? The swine flu is a mutated version of the Spanish flu. Young, healthy people died within 4 hours after contracting the Spanish flu. Their immune  response was overstimulated  and shut down. Crazy, isn’t it?
