Vulnerable people die of 'ordinary' flu too and we hardly ever hear about them, and its right, the media is making things worse, almost everyone around me is worrying about swine flu.
We cannot avoid it but we can help ourselves by supporting our immune system, by keeping blood glucose levels as close to non-diabetic levels as possible, eating lots of healthy, fresh food, I mean mainly vegetables and protein, drink plenty of water, tea (white/green/herbal or fruit - hot or cold)to flush out germs and toxins, consume only good fats, keep calm and relaxed, exercise and be good to yourself - all these will help to keep you healthy and if you are unfortunate enough to catch swine flu or any other illness it will give you the best possible chance of fighting back against any nasty invaders!
Love to all, hope you all stay healthy
