    Why is this a poll exactly? It's a known fact, not anybody's opinion, that common viruses have a more severe effect on the elderly...

    I'm making a new poll everybody!
    Is the sun hot?
    Please, tell me your opinion on the matter!

    As one gets older the immune system breaks down and the body can be infected with something it cannot fight off.

    Wow Sodahead, WTF? Is this what it has come to, having opinion polls on well known facts? And this is the Big Question?!? If you are going to open the floor to debating of accepted knowledge, then ask questions like Global Warming: fact or whatever opinion Science doesn't accredit. What do you think?

    Pneumonia is known as the 'friend of the elderly' because so many finally give up the battle to it.

    Their bodies and immune systems aren't like it once was. I had bronchitis when I was 9 and I was put on an inhaler temporarily for that. I've never been hospitalized for injury or illness.

    Since I am, at 71, one of the elderly I can attest to this on a personal basis.

    I had no serious medical problems until I was 69 years old.

    Absolutely! Their immune system isn't what it once was which makes getting over things like the common cold a lot more difficult.

    if the elderly were healthier, worked out, didnt let their doctors turn them into toxic pill addicts, and werent brainwashed to take vaccines every year im sure their immune systems would be much healthier and able to fight off common sicknesses

    I think once you post a question and someone rplies you should not be able to change it.
