According to every news report I’ve seen on television or read on the web, the best thing we can do to help us avoid getting the swine flu (H1N1 flu) is to wash our hands! We need to become a nation of handwashers. Just use soap and water and wash frequently. It will also help if you avoid places where there are outbreaks. Some governments have issued travel warnings, telling their citizens to avoid going to Mexico and even the US. Stay healthy. Practice frequent hand washing, get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated and eat right. You know the drill!
