Why is everybody going to emergency rooms? Is it because they have no health insurance (unemployed) or is it ignorance? I sneezed……. better go to the ER. I’m sure they have nothing better to do than to hand out overpriced aspirin. Going doooooowwwwwn.

It’s an overtime grab. Rather than enforce immigration law we dole out ‘free’ care to them and overtime to the nurses. Everybody wins except the taxpayers. Get used to it.

This was predicted by a Canadian study. The study found those who had the flu shot were more inclined to catch the flu the next year. So , since it is up ten fold this year , one can expect next year to be ten times higher than that , so , next year will be 100 times higher than last year ?
“A Canadian study currently under peer review apparently suggests that individuals given seasonal flu shots are twice as likely to get swine flu.”

Tamiflu is not a vaccine! It’s an antiviral, which is an oral drug that you take after you get sick. The vaccine is given as a needle that is given to boost the immunity and protect you from getting sick in the first place. This is a common misunderstanding but should be corrected in the article!

I was told by a top specialist that the Tami-flu causes death, had been given to 2 pregnant women and in both cases they had died. A warning from the other side of the world from a dr. that was prepared to speak up.
