There have been other scares in the fairly recent past. Google it. 1976 etc. There were more people who died from the vaccine then with that flu. (Wickepedia)

  • There is definitely an epidemic. And it's more dangeroud for those with other health conditions. A friend of a friend just died, and she had swine flu on top of a lot of other things. She was 37 years old and her husband found her on the bathroom floor.

    I'll take it seriously, but without paranoia.

  • It is officially a pandemic. Yes, it is real. The scariest part of this one though is the most at risk groups. Generally the old, the young and the weak are most affected. This flu has hit the young adult, healthy group. It also is very harsh on pregnant women. Arm yourself with knowledge and be reasonable. Paranoia leads to poor decision making.

  • My daughter had H1N1 in May. It was the fricking flu. 3 days of fever, a few more of cough and congestion. Build up your immune system by eating healthy foods and cutting out junk foods, processed foods, and chemically enhanced foods. Animal products can weaken your immune system, so cut way back on meat and dairy.
