I always did think they were making too much hype about it

    • I agree with you.  Thought the scare was either economically or politically motivated.  Then when my son was diagnosed with it, and I saw how treatable it is, I knew for sure the whole thing was blown out of proportion.

      I never understood why we seemed to be ok with all the deaths from regular flu but got all hot and bothered over deaths from swine flu.  It was illogical to me.  

      Therefore, there had to be some other reason it was made into a huge issue.  Any ideas?

    • Oh yes, my opinion on it, pharmaceutical companies getting rich off all of these new vax they have, just as they always have. I have always said that there is money in sickness and they realize that. Have you ever thought of all of the people who are on all these varied prescriptions. Imagine how much money these pharma makes once most people get on these, they often stay on for life. I am 41 years old and not on any prescriptions. Yet, at my day jobs there are women in their 20’s & 30’s on all kinds of meds. Also, I have a friend who is a little older, about 45 & on nothing. So, she has to have this gall bladder operation and she told me when she goes, they don’t believe her when she tells them that she is on no meds. She said they treated as if she was a liar or something wrong. The medical industry pretty much considers it very normal to be dependent upon medications, but it’s not. I take supplements and herbs sometimes from Nature Sunshine. Better that, than get on meds. Prescriptions wear you down fast. That’s what I think it amounts to hon. I don’t trust hardly nothing at all what the medical industry says.

    • Wow!  Guess I am one of the wierdos!  ha!  I am over 50 and have never been on any daily meds, other than birth control for a few years.  I’m with ya...I don’t want to injest a bunch of chemicals on a long term basis if I don’t have to.  Antibiotics once in a while, or a cough med occassionally if I can’t sleep.  But nothing daily other than a vitamin.  Medication has its place in treatment, but only if used correctly.  (Guess that’s where the difference of opinion comes in.)

      I have witnessed exactly what you describe.  Very young women being given pills to solve minor health problems for a quick fix.  I trust conventional medicine, but I don’t believe in throwing pills at a problem that can be treated by other methods such as lifestyle changes.  The potential long term risks aren’t worth it.

    • Exactly and it also concerns me when I see so many children being put on medications. To me, medication is a last resort issue, but what I see is that it has became a first and only resort. It has side affects and a lot of times, you got the side affects & a lot of doctors will add a secondary med to work on those side affects.
