There are a number of things you can do to reduce your chances of getting the flu.
The whole flu process gets going by breathing it in and then swallowing, or coming into contact and then touching your face and eventually swallowing the virus.
A great deal of immune system activity is constantly going on in and around your digestive tract. Half of your lymph system is located around your digestive tract to deal with “foreigner issues.” You actually have more foreign cells in your digestive tract than cells that make up your body. Your relationship with these non-self entities plays a large role in your immune competence.
For example, if you have too much Candida albicans and too much of a hostile bacteria, these issues have already strained immune function within your gut. In many cases these foreign gangs of thugs are communicating to your front line troops and telling them not to work properly. This makes it more likely that some other type of problem, such as the new Swine flu, can get a toehold in your digestive tract and begin multiplying.
During a potential pandemic you should avoid all junk food, snacking on sugar, excess alcohol, or anything else that interferes with your digestive processes.
