I'll just mention something first...

I used to sometimes read articles at (though I find it hard to read now)...

A few months ago, I was reading an article there about how Covid was all fake.

I went to the end of the article, to see what the credentials of the writer was...

The author (who had written a lot about this at was a tax accountant!

I usually don't get my medical advice from tax accountants... just like I usually don't get my taxes done by a brain surgeon...

This is not a dig at anyone. It's just an illustration of how many people writing articles nowadays think they are infectious disease experts - including accountants, some marketers, and probably even the occasional lion tamer...

I don't think there's money in vaccines for the common cold, as to my knowledge, it's rarely deadly.

Pharmaceutical companies - like most businesses - are in it for the money.

Flu vaccines have been around for many decades now. The first flu vaccine was developed in 1938 (I just looked it up), and was used to inoculate the US forces in World War 2.

While I don't get it every year, I've sometimes gotten the flu vaccine myself. (Because of changing flu strains and mutations, you have to renew your flu vaccination every year...)

Another anti-virus vaccine is the polio vaccine, which was developed by Joseph Salk in 1954. It is a vaccine against the poliovirus.

Polio is now almost completely eliminated from the world population, thanks to the vaccine...

Different diseases are different. They infect you using different mechanisms. It can be harder to develop a vaccine for some diseases compared to others because of these differences...

(An old female friend who I've known for about 25 years became a medical doctor... And one of her friends, who is an expert in the field of developing vaccines, explained it to me a few months ago...)

Yet... it turns out over 3,500 people are dying a day from Covid in the USA right now.

That's more than one 9/11 every day.

I would look at who is interpreting the statistics. Statistics is not necessarily an easy field. (I took a course in it at university, as my undergraduate degree was in both mathematics and physics...) Yet it seems as well as infectious disease experts, we have a lot of commentators who are now suddenly statistics experts too...

(This is not directed at you, but at various commentators...)

I saw an article about that...

The nurse apparently said, "I have a history of having an over-reactive vagal response, and so with that if I have pain from anything, hangnail or if I stub my toe, I can just pass out."

(The vagal response is related to the vagus nerve... probably not what you dirty minded people out there were thinking!)

I agree!

I take vitamin D and zinc myself!

Best wishes,


Thanks for the info.

Just heard that Elon Musk and his family won't be taking the vaccine.

There are a lot of factors to take in... as for me, I am going the natural route with vitamin C, zinc, herbs, sunshine, water, fruit, vegetables, and plenty of rest.

In any case, it makes sense to look at what you are doing personally... get as much info as you need, and do what works for you.
