Re: H1N1 Vaccine - An American PerspectiveJan 18th, 2010
I've mentioned some of this is some other thread. It used to be that women lived longer then men. I don't know if statistics say that is still true but I have to wonder. Out of the 125 - 135 people I work with, the first one sick a few months ago was a man. He has cancer but is taking treatment and hopefully will survive and be back to work. He's in his early 50's. The next is a woman in her early 50's - just had a major heart attack and a stint put in. She won't be back for awhile. She almost didn't make it. Next a younger woman in her mid 40's went in for a routine check-up. I guess she has a great doctor because today she is having not triple but (whatever word 5 is) quintuple? by-pass surgery and apparently last week another woman in her early 40's blacked out and hit her head on a filing cabinet and she's been off work since! I'm beginning to think the "average" is dropping or would be if not for modern day medicine and diagnotic tools.
