With The Recent . . .

. . . outbreak of swine-flu, a number of facebook status updates have been focused on the spread of information concerning the pandemic.

One post was about the various steps each person can take to ensure they're strong against any strain of flu.

his guy posted some long ass article about how to avoid the flu, in general. The first tip is:

Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.

I was mid-chew of my stockpiled Easter candy when I read that.

Then there is:

Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you"re tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu. Be sure to check out my article Guide to a Good Night"s Sleep for some great tips to help you get quality rest.

Okay, I'm 0 for 2.

Have Effective Tools to Address Stress . We all face some stress every day, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.

Is a blowjob an effective tool to address stress? Even if it is, I'm (going to be) 0 for 3.

Exercise. When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads. You can review my exercise guidelines for some great tips on how to get started.


Take a good source of animal based omega-3 fats like Krill Oil.
Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils that are trans fats and in processed foods as it will seriously damage your immune response.

How many Omega-3's are there in grape soda? By the way, my chest hurts.

Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don"t use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.

The day I start washing my hands is the day the flu germs win.

Eat Garlic Regularly. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use. However, if you are allergic or don"t enjoy garlic it would be best to avoid as it will likely cause more harm than good.

Okay, this one I can do. I eat so much garlic that I sweat the same oils that Italian hair produces.

Avoid Hospitals and Vaccines In this particular case, I"d also recommend you stay away from hospitals unless you"re having an emergency, as hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to this new bug. Vaccines will not be available for six months at the minimum but when available they will be ineffective and can lead to crippling paralysis like Guillain-Barré Syndrome just as it did in the 70s.

But that's the best place to take in Eastern European girls who have been beaten mercilessly by their smugglers/pimps. Why don't you just bar me from cruising the Yahoo personals while you're at it?

No, but seriously, stay healthy.
