Centers of Disease Control and Prevention says it’s time to prepare for the 2018-2019 flu season now, especially coming off of a horrible season that killed more children than any other non-pandemic year on record.
Dr. Ken Redcross, board-certified internal medicine physician and author of, “Bond: The 4 Cornerstones of a Lasting and Caring Relationship with Your Doctor,” says, if just one person in your household comes down with the flu, it can just take a few hours for it to spread to everyone. In fact, it only takes one sick person’s cough to spread 2,000 virus-laden droplets into the air!
Having a strong immune system is key to protection and keeping it clean from the inside out, including your environmental surroundings, can make the difference in whether or not you will catch flu. Redcross says tackling influenza room-by-room in your home this season can keep those unwanted houseguests (aka: germs), from invading your space and lower your chances of getting sick this season and he will share with your audience what they can do to prevent the flu in the kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom (visuals include flu fighting foods, natural disinfectant and antibacterial wipes, one-use paper towels and bedding).
