Avoiding the FLU

If you're like me, you hate catching a cold or flu. So I thought you'd be interested in some tips on eliminating germs in your home. These are based on recommendations from the U.S. department of health.

You're much more likely to catch a bug from a handshake than a cough. So wash your hands regularly. You are 200 times more likely to pick up a germ in the kitchen than in any other room in the home -- including the bathroom. So give your kitchen top priority with cleaning. Most people keep countertops clean and sanitized. But don't forget other surfaces that can also carry germs, like computer keyboards, children's toys, phones, and door knobs.If you need to cough or sneeze, and don't have a tissue handy, use the shoulder of your sleeve rather than your hand.

By taking some simple precautions, experts say you can reduce yours, and your family's, risk of getting a cold, flu or bacterial infection by as much as 50%.

That's something to think about!
