        Personaly dont trust the white coats mostly. (Own experience) Gonna bring just one case not to bore

        Ive been contacted by phone by a certain"health centre" im registered with. A Lady with nice voice told me they are TESTING new asthma medicine/inhaler. I refused to be the "paid" lab rat. Month or two later i went for the annual astma check(same health centre) and my doctor proposed me a new asthma inhaler "that many other people recommend as better that the one i used currently..."

          You seriously made a topic questioning the legitimacy of vaccinations? FFS. You embarrass your nation with shit like this.

              The way flu vaccines work is simple
              At any point there are upwards of 40-50 flu strains out there. The experts made a guess which ones will be the most prevalent next season and then they make vaccines for those.

              The experts are also frequently wrong, because there's a lot of strains and it's hard to predict.
              Then there's a few businesses making money off it too, pushing for everyone to get those shots

              And in the end, I never get one and I never get sick either. As far as I know nobody else here gets the things either

                Well at least it wasn't jumping straight to 'aborted infants are being used in vaccines and even give you aids!' If you don't get them and don't get sick, well, so? The elderly and kids/families of large amounts of people don't get that lucky and could use the immune boost if it's available. While there is things to be said for over-care, which is why we're running into superbugs immune to the current generation of vaccines and drug treatments, but that's an entirely different tangent to rant with.

                  This is the exact argument I have against them. Not only can they be ineffective based on miscalculations on the part of the manufacturer, when it's found out that they are, nothing is done to correct this. In fact they're pushed HARDER to get rid of the excess stock of a defective product.

                  They... use dead babies in them? OH GODS YESSSSSSSS!

                  However, due to lackluster manufacturing practices many times the vaccination either does nothing or CAUSES the individual to contract what it's trying to prevent.

                    How many people have you actually asked though? A thousand? A hundred? Just a handful? It's not like people walk around to announce that they have been vaccinated.

                    Besides, lottery tickets have an even lower chance and people still buy those. As long as they aren't too expensive I don't see why not just get the shots. It's not cheap to see the doctor either.

                      I can't tell what you're suspecting. Here are my best guesses.

                      1. The inhaler got good reviews from the people who joined in the test, so now it's the inhaler they give people. This is evil because of self-selection bias? People who wouldn't like the new inhaler also wouldn't like the test, so they didn't get represented? This one seems most likely to me.
                      2. The "new" inhaler was really part of the test, which they were now secretly doing on people without asking? Why did they ask at first then?
                      3. The "test" was just a cover to give people an evil inhaler? Similar question: Why bother with the "test" and not skip to giving everyone the new inhaler?

                        Yeah, because there's no way a medical professional could have an ulterior motive right?

                          My guess here is they couldn't get enough amount of people to test the inhaler on by recruiting by phone so later the doctors might recruit patients for them by saying everybody "loves it" while it is actually still being tested. Just saying there are all kind of doctors out there, good and bad.

                            Well be a chum and help me understand what your problem here is, not that I disagree that theres black sheep in every profession but what exactly did you want of the doctors there?
                            Should they have told you something along the line of 'This new spray sucks and you shouldn't use it'?
                            Perhaps they could get enough people to test because not everyone refused it like you, you seem to misunderstand something fundamentally here, the product you got was already tested in medical studies, else it would have never been approved of(at least not with modern regulations followed), 'would you like to test a new product' is medical slang for 'Ok, we got this new spray, we get a premier for shilling it, but it also proved to work better than the old one, now how do I get this over to the patient without them panicking about it?'

                            Nothing against some healthy scepticism and it's your health, but at the same time why do you think you posess more understanding of the matter than people that spent a good chunk of their life studying the subject? I can understand mistrusting a particularly shady doctor and getting a second opinion, but ignoring medical advice on a mistrust basis is foolish.
