revrendjim: Cytokine Storm: I don't get it, what's so scary about the flu?

You mean other than killing thousands of people every year?

Ya but that's if you're old.  I'm young and healthy, what's there to worry about?

awalkingecho: hardinparamedic: awalkingecho: Also, I was speaking with respect solely to the pharmaceutical industry. Not surgery, transfusions, immediate trauma care.

Then forgive me for lashing at you. I get tired of hearing the idea that anyone in medicine is interested in profits and not the patient.

Apology accepted, and ditto for not being more clear about what I was saying. I'm sorry, I'm sure it gets old, and I did not mean to start a war.

Would you two take this understanding and human decency out of here?!

 This is a *fark* thread for crying out loud!

/but seriously, good job guys. :)

Medicine is not a science, it is a business. They do not create cures, they create customers. Healthy people are not profitable. The goal is to juggle the balance between keeping you just sick enough to need treatment without killing you for as long as possible to keep the coffers full.

I guess if you have to explain the joke...

You, Sir, have my eternal admiration. I have never in my history on FARK seen something so elegant and simple.

I didn't get the shot last year and last year was the first time in years that I didn't get the flu.

I think we can deduce what the flu vaccine is *really* meant to do. It's a scam to keep people paying for flu treatments.

Playing with people's health is heinous. And the damage that the vaccines can cause in young children is unforgivable.
