SWINE FLU VACCINE NON-VEGAN
According to a HealthDay article, the new swine flu vaccine, which is still many months away from being available for distribution to the public, will be egg-based. (Something tells me that eggs will not be the scariest ingredient)
Okay, vegans! It is time to re-evaluate your beliefs, now, before the vaccine actually becomes a reality. How vegan will you be in the moment of truth? What is your position on the safety of vaccines?
Knowing that more people died from the vaccine distributed during the last swine flu scare, in 1976, than from the actual swine flu would be enough for me to steer clear.
The egg part is what really does it for me! I am a raw vegan, so, no eggs. (The silly little part of me that happens to be allergic to eggs will be happy to know that).
