  • Probably both, but remember, every year there is a flu outbreak. ASK YOURSELF WHY this is all being hyped up?? Don't we need money as a nation right now... Paranoid people will spend money on anything. FLU SHOTS= MONEY. Dumb, dumb, dumb....

  • The same way you catch the flu

  • It is a virus! You catch a virus by coming in contact with it This is why handwashing is so important. Did you know that viruses can live on paper money for 9 days?

    You can also adjust your lifestyle a bit to build up your immune system. Not getting enough sleep can lower your resistance to disease. So can being dehydrated, so be sure to drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day. Alchohol, meat, dairy, highly processed foods like white sugar and white flour all weaken the immune system. Foods that build up the immune system include: fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.
