Recently, all kinds of crazy stories about toilet-dwelling spiders that bite your butt and make you die were circulating on facebook. (Thank you, snopes, for clearing up. I don't need to be afraid of Olive Garden restaurant.) So initially, when I read this story, I rolled my eyes a bit.
There is a new flu vaccine made with insect virus! Why is this not in the news? It's creepy and disgusting that they are genetically modifying crap, popping it into vaccines, and passing it off on the American people! And they are mandating these vaccines in some places. Mandating.
I know it's hard to believe. I didn't believe it myself until I googled about and found it on the FDA's own website. OK. I get that the flu is not just nothing. I mean, I'm watching Downton Abbey and I see people do actually die from it sometimes. Young people, even. I don't especially want to die either, just for the record.
I just don't know that putting genetically engineered bug gunk into our bodies is going to bode well for the human race long-term.
