What you need to know about the swine flu

According to the “Associated Press,” the swine flu is spreading just like any winter flu does. With that being said, please make sure to consistently wash your hands, take your vitamins, exercise, and eat a well balanced diet – simply stay healthy! While Mexico reported many deaths, the virus is causing less severe illness in the U.S. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says most cases so far haven’t needed medical attention. The virus can be treated with anti-flu drugs, though this doesn’t mean you need to rush to the emergency room with the first signs of a cold. That’s the last thing Doctors need when there’s so much more to worry about.

The government quit using the name “swine flu,” because it is spread from person to person, NOT from animals; more specifically, swine.

Did you know that 80 percent of all infectious diseases are passed by human contact, either direct or indirect? That includes viruses like pneumonia, salmonella and the common cold. On a bus, you pick up the entire flora of humanity that has passed this way, including feces, fecal flora, skin flora, and respiratory secretions.

This topic frustrates me because I’m constantly seeing woman walk out of the bathroom WITHOUT washing their hands! That’s truly disgusting people – please respect the one’s around you. It takes 20 seconds to thoroughly wash your hands.
