It’s Flu season
again, and one of the best ways to keep yourself healthy is watch your exposure
to the germs that will make you sick.
What's the dirtiest thing you touch in the course of a normal day? If you've been to a
gas station, the pump handle would probably top the list of the filthiest surface you
encountered. A new survey from
Kimberly-Clark found that 71 percent of gas pump
handles tested in six U.S. cities were contaminated with bacteria and viruses capable of
making us sick.
You may want to pull on disposable latex gloves the next time you
reach for the pump handle. Others among the dirtiest surfaces found to be crawling

out documented cases of influenza in 12-24
hours with just 2 cups of the
tea!!! What’s the catch? Sounds too good to be true
right? Well, the catch is that the tea for anti-viral protection is about the worst tasting
thing you will ever taste. So it is a choice, be sick for a week with
the flu, or choke
down a couple cups of bad tasting tea…
