    I think they are hiding something, knowing people have the attention span of nats. Several years ago , they were worried about the Bird Flu ,from Asia crossing over into Humans. A few cases were reported. Healthy young adults died within days. Same thing is happening now. I don't think they want people to panic. Regular ,flu hits children and elderly the hardest. This time , healthy young adults are dying quickly too. That's a symptom of the deadly Bird Flu.

    Simple…..don't take a Flu shot folks.
    Do you really trust these government vaccines that have mercury and other viruses in them being injected into your bodies?
    No wonder why so many people are dying with the flu, because they are the ones taking that deadly vaccine.

    This flu is definitely horrible. Have never been this sick before, or scared about it. Hurts more than phenomia did when I had it back in June. Seriously not something to play around with, if you can help it stay away from people as much as possible. Wish it was an option for me.

    worrisome symptoms that could indicate severe illness: very high persistent fever, difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat and significant fatigue or confusion. In addition, a child who appears to be improving but suddenly gets worse could signal a secondary bacterial infection. 53 children have died from flu this season 2018. Eighty percent of them had not had a flu shot. https://www.denverpost.com/2018/02/02/flu-seasons-hospitalizations-highest-in-decade/#?returnUrl=https://www.denverpost.com/2018/02/02/flu-seasons-hospitalizations-highest-in-decade/?clearUserState=true

    TAKING TWO MULTI-VITAMINS IN ONE DAY MAY BRING RELIEVE FROM THE FLU(EVERYONE READ THIS) 
    With all the misery that the flu has caused I'd like to share with you a way that I used to help me fight off the flu for the last 25 years and it worked on me every time. I'm sure I'm not different than any of you so I think that this method that I discovered can help you too. If it does do let your friends, media, social media, doctors and anyone one else know about what I think is a cure for the flu. Oh, and do let the government and medical field personnel know. I told them many many years ago about this easy cure and haven't heard a peep out of them. Isn't that a shame considering all the pain, misery and money this method to fight off the flu could of prevented and could possible stop if we all simply try this simple easy way to stop the flu. 
    All you have to do to stop the flu is to as soon as you feel the oncoming of the flu you are to take an extra-strength daily multi complete multi vitamin-mineral pill with a meal that has protein. Then about 8 hours later repeat taking the vitamin with a meal. In other words you are going to be taking two vitamins in one day instead of one as most people regularly do. Something about taking two vitamins in one day does something to the flu bug and knocks it out dead as it did for me the last 25 years. I don't believe it can hurt anyone to take two vitamins in one day. Hasn't hurt me and I'm sure many people, especially old people, have mistakenly taken two vitamins in one day and nobody ever had to go see a doctor because of some ailment from doing so. If after the third day after taking two vitamins you fell somewhat like you still got the flu repeat this two vitamins in one day ritual. So since it doesn't hurt and maybe would cure your flu why don't you join me in trying to get this what may be a simple cure for the flu out to the public. Next time you or anyone else gets the flu try this method and see if it works on you. Think of all the misery we can stop and lives and money we can save if it works on many of us!

    I've taken flu shots for all my life and at least i get sick once a year, if i'm lucky i don't get sick at all. But since now, i'm older and make my own choices. I decided to not take the flu shot and instead stick to being healthy and taking care of myself. I haven't been sick for 3 years straight now. Only the occasion cough, sneeze, but nothing severe, goes away after a day or so of taking care of myself. Not saying that their is something wrong with the flu shot, but seems like taking care of yourself is the best thing to do, than always relying on medication every time.
