10 Steps to Take to Prevent Swine Flu

Here are ten precautionary steps that you can take to prevent exposure to the swine flu/H1N1 virus:

Step 1 to prevent Swine flu: Boost your immunity eating fruits and vegetables, avoiding junk foot and taking vitamins and nutrients. multivitamins, Vitamin C and numerous herbs have been known to boost immunity to fight off viruses and infections.


Step 2 to prevent Swine flu: Keep your hands clean, washing them with soap and water thoroughly. Hands should be washed for 20 seconds paying attention to the palms, the thumbs, back of hands, and fingertips that are often ignored when washing hands. If you do not have access to soap and water, use alcohol based hand sanitizer. Be generous with the sanitizer saturating the hands and rubbing until they are dry.


Step 3 to prevent Swine flu: Keep your hands away from your face. Do not touch your eyes, your nose, or your mouth. This help keep any germs you get on your hands from getting into your body.


Step 4 to prevent Swine flu: Keep your hands to yourself. Hugging, holding hands, and most especially shaking hands are a quick way to pass the Swine Flu from person to person. Take a hint from Howie Mandell and learn the fist-bump.


Step 5 to prevent Swine flu: Put your social life on hold. Avoid large crowds such as concerts, clubs and festivals. If schools are closed due to Swine Flu, stay home. Don’t hang out in the library or in the mall with groups of friends.


Step 6 to prevent Swine flu: Do not read magazines and newspapers in public places, especially in doctor’s offices. Be careful about touching your self when handling library books and spray them with a disinfectant immediately upon getting them home. Be careful in book stores as well.


Step 7 to prevent Swine flu: Avoid contact with sick people. Assume anyone with flu-like symptoms has swine flu and don’t worry about seeming a little rude. It is better to be safe than sorry. Be extra careful on College Campuses and reconsider passing the peace on Sundays.


Step 8 to prevent Swine flu: Disinfect regularly to kill germs that cause the influenza virus. Clean bedside tables, bathroom and kitchen counters, toys, doorknobs, handles and everything else in your home that can be contaminated. Don’t forget to clean bedding every few days and wash eating utensils, especially if they are shared, in the dishwasher.


Step 9 to prevent Swine flu: Wear a mask to keep germs out. Be sure to choose your mask carefully. According to consumer reports “not all masks are created equal. To prevent the inhalation of most virus-bearing droplets from a cough or sneeze masks and respirators should be labeled N-95 or higher, which means they have been cleared by the FDA. They may also bear a label from the National Institute for Occupational Safety.” Also make sure your mask is well fitted so that germs cannot get around it.


Step 10 to prevent Swine flu: If you or anyone else in your family gets Swine Flu, be considerate and don’t spread it to anyone else by staying home and isolated until the fever has lifted for over 24 hours.
