78. More "crap" for you.

Oct 2018

"Getting the shot" weakens your bodies natural immunity. The fear of getting the flu is obviously 'stressful' for all the people who have no confidence in their own physical and mental health.

I applaud those people who loudly proclaim their freedom from the highly sophisticated marketing campaign designed to addict the masses to a regime of chemical dependency.

Those 80,000 people that died from the flu last year are a reflection of how bad your medical industry is at promoting good public health practices. You think that all the environmental disease in your society can be solved with pills and insurance.
