Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by RNA viruses that infect the respiratory tract of many animals, birds, and humans. |
Preventing it's spread was impossible in previous years, but these days we have many things to combat the illness. Flu shots are the main weapon, but information and communication are equally effective in reducing the flu's wrath. Years ago there were no medical innovations in preventing the flu as people were essentially helpless to prevent or cure the virus. Currently though, we have far less of a fear to fear from the flu virus than our predecessors had.
Preparedness is the best defense against the coming flu season. One definite step toward preventing the disease is to get an annual flu shot. There are two forms of flu vaccine. The first being the common flu shot, usually administered by a shot in the arm. The second is a nasal spray form that is misted into the nasal cavity. Which you choose to have administered is up to you, but it is becoming more evident that getting a flu vaccination is vital to your health during this season. Vaccination also can aide in preventing the spread of the flu as less people will contract and spread it.
With these methods there are viable means of preventing the virus. In the past, there was no way to anticipate what strains would infect the populace. Combine this with the fact that there was no method by which the virus could be prevented, and you can understand why the people of this era would fear getting the flu. Today, however, there are vaccines that will greatly reduce, if not completely eliminate your chances of contracting influenza. There is the traditional shot in the arm and also a nasal spray form of the vaccine. Many scientists and researchers worldwide develop flu vaccines each year. Their main goal is to determine which strains of the flu have the potential to be the most dangerous and target the vaccine toward these. This may not be100% effective, but generally reduces the flu threat overall.
Finally, you have to learn to make goals that influence good health, but you will also need to se goals that will help you to feel better about yourself.
