Why Being Vegetarian Will Help You Avoid Getting the H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu)

World News


The H1N1 virus swine flu shots should arrive in October.  Did you know that the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is recommending that at risk groups should get both the regular flu shot and the two series H1N1 virus flu shots?  Wow, that means you will have to get three shots.  That scares the “heck” out of me and I am in the at risk group because of my age.  Will I take these shots? Not on your life and not on mine!  Why?  I am a vegetarian and have built up my immune system everyday to combat against this and any virus!  You need to start today to plan to stay healthy this fall, this flu season and all year round.  It is not the responsibility of the government, the CDC and medical community to make and keep you healthy.  It is your responsibility.  There is absolutely no proof that taking these three shots will “prevent” you from getting the swine flu.  We all are at risk.  Would I and should you put your life in the hands of a government that has (1) all but allowed our economy to collapse; (2) can’t figure out how to fix a failed health system; (3) has drowned us in debt and untold lives lost with 2 wars.  Need I go on?  You, my friend must take responsibility for your own health and not sit back and allow the government to tell you what to do.  Here are five reasons why going vegetarian will help you avoid getting the H1N1 virus (swine flu):1.    “Vegetarians avoid pork – dah!” – I get very annoyed when people refer to the CDC and say that according to the CDC swine flu is not spread from eating pork.  Great! That solves all the problems, the CDC said…  Making statements like this is going to the root of rescuing the agri-business of it’s responsibilities.  Well guess what, genius, swine flu is from pork and “is endemic in pigs“ (see Wikipedia) .  So rhetorically, I ask that person if we didn’t have pigs, would we have the H1N1 virus?  We can play word and mental gymnastics on the subject all day long!2.    “Vegetarians immune systems are better” – carnivores can challenge me on this one.  We can agree to disagree but recent studies and books all point to the fact that we are predominantly vegetarian and a vegetarian lifestyle is healthier than a meat eating one.  You either accept this or you don’t and the proof is try it and see.  That is where I lose 90% of my customers because they refuse to find out for themselves! 3.    “Vegetarians are more health conscious” – I have yet to find a vegetarian who isn’t very serious about his/her health!  We aren’t trying to demand people be vegetarian.  We just say that if you do choose this lifestyle you will feel healthier and more alive than ever before. 4.    “Vegetarians are particular about their restaurants” – I simply ask this question, do you know who prepared your food, what went into your food and what ingredients went into your food at the last restaurant you went to?  You can be sure a vegetarian does because they want to be sure they are getting pure whole food.  I also ask, do you know that if that cook or waiter coughing, sneezing on your food has swine flu?5.    “Vegetarians are serious about the health of the world” – the swine flu is believed to have spread to us from South America and possibly Mexico.  Do we know for sure?  Of course not but vegetarians, you can be sure conscientiously investigate where their food comes from and if it is truly organic, whole food and not processed with non-vegetarian ingredients.  Is this a world view? I think so.The CDC is going to have its hands full this flu season.  I emphasize that it is not their responsibility to keep you healthy.  It is yours.  If you get sick, you simply become a statistic. They are not going to be held accountable.  My most important recommendations besides getting and staying in tip top health are (1) be sure and cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze with a tissue or handkerchief and dispose of the tissue and wash the handkerchief after you use them; (2) frequently and especially after coughing or sneezing, touching door knobs, faucets in common areas or shared devices such as keyboards and mice, wash your hands with soap and water for at least as long as it takes you to say the alphabet. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also recommended but washing your hands with soap and water are best; (3) Try to think to avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, three orifices that allow germs to enter the body and spread; (4) if you believe you have the flu or H1N1 flu, by all means stay at home and avoid contact with family, friends and business associates. Once infected you become a carrier and can spread the disease. You need to start preparing today for the flu season that is about to spread a new virus called the H1N1 Virus or Swine Flu.  If you want to learn more about how to become vegetarian, lose weight and be healthy this flu season go to Go Vegetarian!Or go to…H1N1 Swine Virus Information and Opportunity!Source: Free Articles from ArticlesFactory.com
