and new flu antibiotics and why they may not be right for your child
Influenza is a very common disease so common, in fact, that whenever we have the (classic) symptoms of fever, chills, headache, aches and pains, and "malaise" (the technical term for "feeling lousy") we tell ourselves and others that we have "the flu". This may be true, and usually is true during the flu season (1-3 months during the winter), but you should bear in mind that there are many other viruses that can produce similar symptoms and a few bacteria as well. After the initial "flu-like" symptoms, cough, congestion, and sore throat become worse in most cases; you may also have viral "pink eye" and/or abdominal symptoms (stomach ache, nausea, and vomiting). Muscle aches and pains can be bad enough to make walking difficult. Usually the symptoms subside within a week or so. In small children, influenza can also cause bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small air passages of the lungs). The symptoms are similar to those seen with

4. The Flu, NIAID Fact Sheet
Influenza, or flu, is a respiratory infection caused by a variety of flu viruses. The most familiar aspect of the flu is the way it can "knock you off your feet" as it sweeps through entire communities.
January 2003
Influenza, or flu, is a respiratory infection caused by a variety of flu viruses. The most familiar aspect of the flu is the way it can "knock you off your feet" as it sweeps through entire communities. The flu differs in several ways from the common cold, a respiratory infection also caused by viruses. For example, people with colds rarely get fevers or headaches or suffer from the extreme exhaustion that flu viruses cause. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 20 to 26 percent of Americans come down with the flu during each flu season, which typically lasts from November to March. Children are two to three times more likely than adults to get sick with the flu, and children frequently spread the virus to others. Although most people recover from the illness, CDC estimates that in the United States more than 100,000 people are hospitalized and about 50,000 to 70,000 people die from the flu and its complications every year.
Flu outbreaks usually begin suddenly and occur mainly in the late fall and winter. The disease spreads through communities creating an epidemic. During the epidemic, the number of cases peaks in about 3 weeks and subsides after another 3 or 4 weeks. Half of the population of a community may be affected. Because schools are an excellent place for flu viruses to attack and spread, families with school-age children have more infections than other families, with an average of one-third of the family members infected each year.

To save $5 on your order click here!! Colds and flu are commonly viral illnesses, in fact colds are by definition viral illnesses, rhino viruses of which there are several thousand types. What is the current medical treatment for colds? Antihistamines, cough suppressants, decongestants and other treatments of the symptoms of infection are used, but very little treatment is directed toward the cause of the cold. Rest in bed, keeping warm and plenty of fluids is still recognized as important. Sometimes even antibiotics are used, even though we all know that antibiotics never work on viruses. Rhino-virus infections usually last about three or four days. The lining of the respiratory tract is affected and the surface is damaged by the virus. Then bacteria, which may be susceptible to antibiotics, move into the damaged tissue and set up secondary infections. These cause the yellow discharge of infected material from the nose that can last for weeks. Today if I had a cold I would try a health food store first. Even if I had pneumonia I might try a health food store first. Health food stores sell large quantities of vitamin C, Echinacea, and other herbal and homeopathic remedies for colds which often do have some effect on viral diseases. Vitamin C and A are certainly proven to be enhancers of the immune system, and many herbs and homeopathic remedies have clinical evidence of efficacy. I am not suggesting that you refuse to or do not see a medical physician for pneumonia. There are still many strains of this disease, and many others, that antibiotics cure. It is just that there are many that they do not. The belief that health and freedom of disease could come from doses of antibiotics was wrong 50 years ago. It is even more wrong today.

Clostridium perfringens
Not the 24 hour flu
Barbara Rohrs
What is Clostridium perfringens
Clostridium perfringens is one of the bacteria that make people sick. Clostridium perfringens bacteria are found in soils, the intestines of humans and animals, and sewage. Any raw food may contain spores or the bacteria. The bacterium, Clostridium perfringens , grows anaerobically. That means it will only grow where there is little or no oxygen. At temperatures between 70 and 120 degrees F, little or no air, and high moisture, the spores can produce the toxin.
What are the symptoms of Clostridium perfringens poisoning?
Intense abdominal pain and diarrhea begin 8 to 22 hours after eating foods that contain these bacteria. The illness is usually over within 24 hours but less severe symptoms may last longer for some people - especially very young or older people. Dehydration can occur with this type of foodborne illness. Many times, people confuse this foodborne illness with the "24-Hour Flu."
Is Clostridium perfringens poisoning common?

Flu Season 2002-03 There is plenty of influenza vaccine available, and it's not too late to vaccinate.
About 93 million doses of influenza vaccine are currently available in the U.S. market. This is a record production! However, many people who are in the greatest need of this protection often remain unvaccinated after November. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that vaccination efforts for all groups, especially those at high risk, their household contacts, and health care workers, should continue into December or later, for as long as vaccine is available.

October 2002 What Happens When You Get Influenza? Is Influenza Considered Serious? Who Gets Influenza? How Are Influenza And Complications Prevented? ... Key Points To Remember
Influenza is a contagious disease caused by a virus. A virus is a germ that is very small. Influenza viruses infect many parts of the body, including the lungs.
When someone who has influenza sneezes, coughs, or even talks, the influenza virus is expelled into the air and may be inhaled by anyone close by.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET INFLUENZA? When influenza strikes the lungs, the lining of the respiratory tract is damaged. The tissues become swollen and inflamed. Fortunately, the damage is rarely permanent. The tissues usually heal within a few weeks. Influenza is often called a respiratory disease, but it affects the whole body. The victim usually becomes acutely ill with fever, chills, weakness, loss of appetite and aching of the head, back, arms and legs. The influenza sufferer may also have a sore throat and a dry cough, nausea, and burning eyes. The fever mounts quickly; temperature may rise to 104 degrees F but after two or three days, it usually subsides. The patient is often left exhausted for days afterwards.

The proportion of patient visits to sentinel providers for influenza-like illness (ILI) overall was 1.8%, which is below the national baseline of 1.9%. The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza was 7.5%. Three state and territorial health departments reported widespread influenza activity, 19 reported regional activity, 22 reported sporadic activity, and 4 reported no influenza activity**.
Laboratory Surveillance*: During week 12, U.S. WHO and NREVSS laboratories reported 1,265 specimens tested for influenza viruses, of which 139 (11.0%) were positive. Thirty-eight influenza A (H1)† viruses, 10 influenza A (H3N2) viruses, 56 unsubtyped influenza A viruses, and 35 influenza B viruses were identified.

Doctors hunt for source of deadly 'bird flu' strain
December 8, 1997
Web posted at: 10:28 a.m. EST (1528 GMT) HONG KONG (CNN) Hong Kong health officials on Monday began stalking a "bird flu" virus suspected of killing two people in the territory and sickening two others, and called for international assistance in developing a vaccine against the disease. The new influenza virus strain, identified as H5N1, was previously known to exist only in poultry. Officials have downplayed fears regarding at least one aspect of the virus: So far, it does not appear to pass from human to human. "However, we feel that this possibility would need to be further looked into," said Hong Kong Deputy Director of Health Paul Saw . Authorities have launched a drive to screen relatives of victims and medical staff who have treated affected patients.
First noticed in humans in May
The disease was first identified in a human in May 1997, when a 3-year-old boy who was infected died from ailments including pneumonia, respiratory disease and inflammation of the brain. Since then, the virus has been identified in a 13-year-old girl who has been hospitalized for treatment, a 2-year-old boy who was hospitalized in November but recovered fully, and a 54-year-old man who died on Friday.
