Had this info sent to me and thought you might find it interesting:

The vaccine to prevent every strain of flu
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/health/healthmain.html?in_article_id=425227&in_page_id=1774

A super one-shot cures all from those who wish to eliiminate illnesses (flu in this case) by vaccination.  Although I seriously doubt I would use this when it is available, I thought it might provoke some interesting thoughts and discussion.

Looks to me that this would be a major breakthrough if it works out. Apparemtly they are trying to get around the mutating ability of the virus by selecting a target on the coating that they feel is more stable.

An odd statement here though

Quoted from article
Normally, such vaccines would have to go through at least five years of human tests before going on the market. However, if a bird flu pandemic occurs before that, they could be made more quickly available.


Not noting that once the pandemic starts its a little late for vaccines.

Anyhow worth keeping an eye on. I am a little skeptical on 'one size fits all' solutions but I guess it is the ultimate goal of the vaccine industry. (after profits of course)

I have some immunological fears as a lay person;
Coudn't this vaccine be dangerous for As (autoimmune diseases) and for B and O who could be far more sensitive to A-like immunological lectines ?
I hope Dr D or Tom Greenfield can explain it here !
Waiting to know, I do not need it if I am compliant with BTD  and supplements.

Thank you Dr D!
