  12. What we need to know is how do we prevent getting into this mess

  13. Prevention • Exercise… • Do workouts on a regular basis, keeping in mind that ‘once in a while’ is not enough.

  14. Prevention • Eat healthy foods • Eat Chicken Soup. • Don’t wait until you get sick to indulge • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. • Those who eat balanced meals are the very ones who protect themselves from colds and viruses.

  15. Prevention • Keep hands clean at all times. Wash your hands as many times during the day as possible. …. • Always wash your hands with soap. If there is no soap, wash hands in hot water, and dry them well.

  16. Prevention • Keep a nasal decongestant on hand. • If you begin to feel sniffles coming your way, take the decongestant, without waiting to see if the symptoms get worse.

  17. Prevention • Vitamin C. • Take Vitamin C combined with all of the above. • It will aid in protecting you from those wet sniffles. • Take one each day, and wash it down with orange juice.

  18. Prevention • Buy lots of medicines

  19. Prevention • Get Plenty of Rest and Fluids • We are all aware that bed rest, drinking plenty of liquids, and taking Tylenol, enable us to recover from those nasty, energy-zapping and runny nose viruses.

  20. Prevention • Keep objects clean, especially your telephone. • Any object that you come into contact with has germs left on it.

  21. Have you ever been caught in a sneeze ???

  22. Prevention • Stay away from people who sneeze constantly. • In fact, we are often times aware when a full-blown sneeze is in the making. • Immediately, turn your head away from the sneezer

  23. Prevention • Keep your mouth shut… drool has germs too….

  24. Prevention • Keep hands away from face. • When coming into contact with a germ, it will not attack you unless you place it on your face with your hands. • Dr. B.A. Jinadu suggests that you, “Don’t pick your nose “
