  • Here is some excellent advice about staying healthy against the H1N1 or any influenza. (Vitamins, herbs, staying warm and getting plenty of sleep are of course additional aspects of taking care of yourself)
    Love to everyone,

    The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible to avoid contact with H1N1 despite precautions. CONTACT with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as is proliferation of the germs once they arrive.

    While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on (cont'd)

  • In the United States, on average 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related complications, and; about 36,000 people die from seasonal flu-related causes. Some people, such as older people, young children, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.

  • More people die from the seasonal flu each week than have died from the swine flu ALL year

  • My hospital is opening a separate building for anyone who suspects they might have H1N1.
    Its going to get worse before it gets better.

  • Did you know that, at least in NC, they don't let you come to the hospital. If you report "flu type symptoms" it is immediately called H1N1 and you are told to stay home. If you go to the hospital with the flu, they don't test for the type. It is automatically H1N1. If you die, it is automatically H1N1. I don't trust any of the stats about this virus.

  • About 90 people die each day from the flu. At least that many kids will die today from car accidents and other causes. What is your point?

  • That Jesse is the reason I question if they did ie of swine flu. How do they know if they are not testing anyone for it?
