I am so conflicted! We all have asthma (six of my kids & me) so on the recommendation of our asthma specialist, we always get the regular flu shot. We did NOT, however, do the swine flu shot last year, as there were many many safety issues, and unanswered questions about the effect on autism spectrum individuals (three of my kids & me are on the spectrum). Our asthma doc just told us that all the flu shots this year will include both regular flu and swine flu. How do I resove this dilemma?Answer Question

We haven't and won't. The Swine flu is just a scam to make money on the vaccinations. Far more people die from the regular flu each than the "swine flu" which was created by the gov't anyway. The side effects can be much worse than the actual flu virus. A mom on here, rkoloms, I think......her child had H1N1 last year......was sick for a few days, then got better. It's not that big of a deal, but they want everyone to rush out and get it so they create panic calling it a pandemic. Also, the flu shots still contain Thimerisol, so please don't give it to your little ones.

My husband had to get the H1N1 shot last year again for the military and was unconscious for 4 days and nearly died from the shot. We will never get it.

With all the hype about the upcoming flu epidemic, and the pros and cons of vaccination, how can we protect our children and ourselves?
According to the results of a double-blind, placebo-controlled study reported in the August issue of PEDIATRICS, probiotics may be useful to prevent cold and influenza-like symptoms in children.
Of 326 healthy children three to five years old, 104 were randomly assigned to receive placebo, 110 received _Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM_ and 112 received a combination of _L acidophilus NCFM_ and _Bifidobacterium animalis subsp lactis Bi-07_. The children were treated twice daily for 6 months...
