Being sick

  1. Oct 24, 2005 #1
    What can one do other than washing hands, blah blah, to not get sick? I really don't want to get sick this year :(

    I thought of that, but ehhh, in the long run my immune system would suck.

    I don't eat fast food. I don't eat too much processed crap though either, even though it's impossible to get away from it.

    I think all of the unnatural, pesticide laced, processed food I eat creates such a hostile environment, germs find it hard to thrive in my body, they move on to easier prey, you know, those people that eat all that healthy food. :biggrin:

    Well I know what my mom would say:
    -Drink your carrot juice
    -Don't go outside with wet hair
    -Eat plenty of garlic (don't give me that bad breath excuse!)
    -Put some clothes on it's freezing outside!(this is assuming you don't have on 2 sweaters and a jacket already :wink: )
    :uhh:

    I live off vegetables, and because I am not antagonistic there are no 15 year old girls that want to beat me up.

    BTW- I have only been sick one time since I stopped eating animals. It was from ingesting bacteria from a dirty cup. I use my own cup so as not to generate garbage. I learned my lesson, soy bacteria can be nasty, so now I wash my cup regularly.

    I just knew soy had to be worse than eating meat! :rofl: Oh, wait, hmm...which site was it I found yesterday...in the Bird Flu thread in politics, I have a bunch of links about agriculture. One of those also had a table of hormones found in agricultural products (plants and animals)...the amount of estrogens per unit weight in a steer WITH an estrogen implant was hardly anything compared to soy...the difference even surprised me; I knew soy was high in estrogens, but didn't realize how high. :bugeye: :rofl: So, all those people afraid of hormones in their meat run off and eat soy. :devil:

    The best thing you can do is avoid crowded public places, and especially avoid children.

    Always good advice. :tongue2: They look harmless enough, but they're actually little disease-infested vermin, or walking bioreactors! :grumpy:
