- why is what number?....the 36,000?...with 65 and older bieng the most threatened?
- because at 65 years old...no matter what most of us are not going to live much longer....65 years old and most of our Body's will be ready to pass on....has nothing to do with Immune sytsem.....just bieng old ...
- one day we will all die....I know at 65 my body will not be able to fight off sickness like it did when I was 25.
But eating healthy and drinking clean water my whole life...is much more of a factor on my immune sytem then getting a Flu shot.
