You know what? Being sick sucks! Whether you have a cold or cancer - it is never fun. So this may seem like a crazy question...but would you let the government infect you with the flu for $3,000?

Now, as crazy as this sounds - it is a real option. The National Institutes of Health is in the middle of a massive clinical research study to try to find a cure for the flu. They have done all the non-human testing they can and now they're at the point where they need to really test it.

If you get the flu naturally and want to get better quicker - Asthma and Allergy Of Idaho is also participating in a large study of flu medication...and they may pay you a little bit too.
