Back to School with N1H1



The Daily Green had some good advice on dealing with N1H1 at back-to-school time.  It’s a new virus, so there’s no telling how bad it will be this fall and winter, but so far H1N1 — the swine flu — has proven to be a virulent, but not altogether debilitating strain of the flu.

It’s important to remember that swine flu is just an influenza virus, similar to the one that circulates every winter. “The same basic rules apply to stop the spread of infection,” Imus writes. “Stay home if you think you are sick, wash your hands frequently (use a healthy hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable), and cover your coughs and sneezes.” By “healthy hand sanitizers,” Imus means those that use essential oils, rather than synthetic pesticides, to fight bacteria; antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers often contribute to the evolution of drug-resistant bacteria and other environmental problems, and are blamed for thousands of poisonings every year.

  1. I think this is a great not for all parents to read. And it should be applied every fall, not just during an H1N1 scare! lol. Although I think it’s great that this can raise awareness in the battle against the spread of all flus…


  2. this is diffently scary,i have a young girl starting school soon and i worry about her getting H1N1 from another student


  3. I think everyone should be aware of it not only students because its a virus it will spread easily to everyone especially to those who have weak immune system.


  4. Environmental news these days are not so good, oil spills, oil leakages, etc.~`’
