Flu Vaccine worth the risks?


A well respected doctor’s evaluation of the flu shot (full article can be read here ) is that it is more risky to take it than not.

If you were a company that paid millions of dollars to research and develop a vaccine that when sold would return that investment at least 100 fold, would you then belly up to the bar and tell everyone that it just might be ineffective? Or worse, dangerous?

The answer should be obvious.

As a “public” corporation, pharmaceutical companies are operating within the parameters that the “public” has unwittingly given them. Isn’t it time the “public” changes it’s mind about such things?
