[io9]Swine flu gives its survivors supercharged immunity, Might create Flu Vaccine - Page 3

a) That's how humans work. The immune system has been doing this ever since it was invented It's why we're still here.

b) The best / main source of Vit D is sunlight. So go outside, don't pop empty pills

Reference me up.

Wow...
How many mg a pill?

Don't you get out in the Sun? Since your body synthesizes Vitamin D3 from being exposed to the Sun.

Winter here in Montreal is not the best time to go and expose yourself half-naked to the sun outside : ) The days are also very short, this time of year.

But yea, in the summer, I'll go outside and sunbathe instead of popping pills.

There was NOT a swine flu pandemic....why does it keep being reffered to as such? Even WHO declared it a non pandemic.

I was sick with the swine flu for 2 weeks, the first week made my body so weak I can barely stand. But strangely after the swine flu I havent gotten sick since. That was in summer of 2009.....
I LOL at the people saying its not a pandemic, they are oblivious to what the word pandemic means....

I never could decide which annoyed me more.

The hypochondriacs or the "invincible super heroes".
