The bird flu is the scare of the moment… Not quite eclipsing the terrorism issue, but still up there.
For all those that are desperately trying to get flu vaccinations, there is no proof that it will work… And washing hands seems to be the most practical advice that seems to have a chance in stemming any sort of flu pandemic. Apparently the trick is in how long you wash for and to ensure you dry your hands. When washing hands, sing the alphabet song and foam your hands the entire time. Then make sure you dry them 100% afterwards.
You’ll probably find that you don’t get those pesky colds as much either.
