How to Protect Yourself from Swine Flu

Jun 06, 2009
Everyone is scared about getting swine flu these days, knowing how dangerous it is. It is important to be aware of the protection methods and swine flu prevention.

First of all, let's make it clear that eating pork and other products made of it is completely safe, once it is heat-processed. It is known that the virus of swine flu is destroyed at the temperature of 70-71 degrees Celsius, that's why pork should be cooked well.

Personal hygiene is very important


It is necessary to respect some simple rules of hygiene in order to get protection from being infected.
  • Always wash hands after visiting public places. Gels, antiseptics and soap made on the base of alcohol are best suited for this purpose.

  • Cover the mouth when sneezing or coughing. The virus of swine flu is transmitted by air and droplets.

  • You can also wear a face mask for extra protection. Try to avoid public places (cinemas, clubs, and parties).

  • Wipe the surfaces of telephones, tables and other objects of public use with alcohol-based solutions, since the bacteria can be active for a long time.

Drugs and vaccines against Swine Flu


Self-treatment is not recommended, but you should be informed anyway. It is known that treatment at an early stage of the disease leads to a complete recovery. However, some viruses of swine flu acquire drug tolerance, which lowers the effectiveness of the treatment. The last cases of infection with this virus in the USA had revealed its tolerance towards amantadine and rimantadine. Drugs containing oseltamivir and zanamivir are considered to be more efficient.

A vaccine against the virus of swine flu has not been created yet. The virus is modified quite quickly, that's why it is necessary to separate the same virus affecting people at any given moment.

Things to avoid


Avoid close contact with people infected with swine flu. Don't think that the will protect you in any circumstances. In Mexico, even shaking hands has been forbidden.

It's better to avoid traveling to regions with reported cases of swine flu infections, such as Mexico or the USA. However, keep in mind that the virus is rapidly spreading in other countries. If one of your relatives arrived from another country and has caught a "cold" right away, take measures to isolate this person in a separate room and limit any contacts, wearing a protective face mask if necessary. Call your health care provider to see him.

Other recommendations


Try to improve your immune system with the help of vitamin C, proper diet and exercising.

If you feel the initial symptoms of flu, you should stay at home and immediately contact your doctor.

Always remember that it is easier to prevent swine flu than treat it, so be careful and make sure that you and your family are protected.

we replace the<a href="http://leoowhr.com"> curnert</a> (failing) formalization with one that is just as screwed up, I don't really see the point of the whole exercise. Zimri's formalization wouldn't align the interests of the progressives better with the interests of the entire state. I am almost sure that that is not even possible considering how many progressives there are.Besides, all the<a href="http://leoowhr.com"> curnert</a> UR proposals to reboot the country seem to include removing all progressives from positions of power and destroying the universities. That doesn't seem like formalization to me.

system will work for the five minutes it takes prieogssrves to capture it.In reality, we already have something like your "Council of Guardians" -- the universities through the academic peer-reviewed press. However, since this has to exist in the real world, it cannot follow your idyllic assumptions.Oh BTW: provable falsity: I will accept that my claim here is false if you can demonstrate that it is in the best interest of all the individual actors to comply with your stated guidelines.And finally, Aspergers? could you find anything more sophomoric? http://glwqvdx.com [url=http://czehbglisj.com]czehbglisj[/url] [link=http://ppguosu.com]ppguosu[/link]

challenge must itself be <a href="http://hsmdyzuj.com">faflsiiable</a>.The physical assumptions of the State are then consulted in all policies and jurisprudential decisions. The Council itself, if consulted directly, may say "this will happen if you do / don't do X" or "if you want us to study Q then we need $y million". However the Council may not itself suggest policy, let alone give orders or levy taxes.This maintains representative government; while keeping the masses from instituting something popular and stupid, like creationism. Civil servants and policy-making humbug-mongers get an outlet for their primate urge for status, but it's channeled into a separate track than the popularity contest of politics. Stupidities beloved of the Left, like carbon credits or race quotas, are subject to challenge from elected officials; but a rule is in place to prevent bogus challenges from a non-scientific background.And MM, hope you and yours get well soon.

the swine flu pandemic is one of heetad debate full of propaganda and fear mongering from both extremes. I'm sure many ave seen or heard of alex jones' theories that this is a manufactured controlled situation that he warns could easily be a product of our own government. "power hour" another independent news show claims to have a caller with confirmed information that homeland security has been shadily moving large amounts of bird and swine flu to be mixed with vaccines and distributed. these sources tend to agree that the media and government are collaboratively creating this situation to scare the public into submissiveness as well as a distraction from other major issues. these sources are passionate and convincing however they are just as bad. They prey on the public's fear and naturally skeptical, inquisitive nature. We want to know what the government keeps from us and we want people to blame. Conspiracy theories engage our imaginations and feed on our tendency to feel victimized. Yes its possible that pharmaceutical corporations and government big wigs are in cahoots to create a demand for government control and safety as well as a demand for the pharmaceutical products, but it is just as possible that the sources proposing such atrocities are playing to our weaknesses in order to gain support that further legitimizes their claims in their own and the public's eyes. I have a lot to say and rant and warn about but will leave it with a kind warning to take all bits of information with a grain of salt. Ask the same questions of both sides, use your brain before jumping to conclusion and most of all be safe and stay healthy.
