Dr. Oz did not really take the flu shot live on ABC television, unless he is a complete HYPOCRITE. He wrote in his book for consumers to ALWAYS read the ingredients list on food labels, and always avoid harmful chemical additives!
Influenza A (H1N1) virus is a subtype of influenzavirus A and the most common cause of influenza (flu) in humans. Some strains of H1N1 are endemic in humans and cause a small fraction of all influenza-like illness and a large fraction of all seasonal influenza. H1N1 strains caused roughly half of all human flu infections in 2006. Other strains of H1N1 are endemic in pigs (swine influenza) and in birds (avian influenza).
