For the first hour I wanted to puke. For the second hour I was all hopped up on sugar. For the third hour I crashed. By the last draw I felt normal again. Hopefully I'll pass and that will be that.

I saw something today which totally goes hand in hand with my vaccinations conversation we all had below. To a T had a post today about a coworker of hers telling everyone he has Whooping Cough! Remember what I said about that ...
~ Pertussis (Whopping Cough): This was known as the most contagious of all diseases. A full 90% of the un-vaccinated will contract the disease if they come into contact. Before the vaccine, there were 147,000 cases each year, of which 8,000 would die. Whooping cough is still around, in 1997 there were 9,771 cases, but it's a drastic decrease from pre-vaccination times. And with a 5.4% fatality rate, we're lucky to have a decrease of 137,229 cases each year, which relates to 7,410 lives saved each year! 528 deaths per year are a lot, but much less than the 300,000/yr worldwide death rate.Awesome, eh? 90% of the un vaccinated will catch the disease from that man. But don't worry, there is only a 5.4% fatality rate, so no reason to worry.
