Swine Flu Prevention:
1. Wash You hands- Wash your hands for 15 to 20 seconds, almost 4-5 times a day or as often as you can.

2. Sleep Good- Try to get 8 hours of rest while you sleep.

3. Drink Liquids- You need to have enough liquids in a day to keep you going.

4. Eat Immune Boosting Foods- stick with whole grains, colorful vegetables, and vitamin-rich fruits.

5. Avoid Alcohol- Alcohol is an immune suppressant that can actually decrease your resistance to viral infections like swine flu so avoid it and be safe.

6. Exercise Daily- Some kind of physical activity is necessary for everyone. It supports the immune system so keep going.

7. Avoid Contact with Sick People- Flu or virus is spread when particles dispersed into the air through a cough or sneeze reach someone else’s nose. So if you’re coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth (and then wash your hands), and if you have to be around someone who is sick, try to stay a few feet away from them and avoid physical contact.

8. Gargle- atleast twice a day with warm salt water.

9.Clean your nostrils- with warm salt water every day.
Keep these points in the head and prevent yourself from Swine Flu.
