  • This is a useful summary of good advice but I do wish we didn't have to click through five pages to read one article! I realize it provides more opportunities for advertisers to reach us but it annoys me to the point that I sometimes just don't read to the end.

    End of rant. :) - 1/16/2011 7:22:42 PM
  • The first piece of advice is rather silly considering the membership of this site, eh? It's possible to be overweight and be healthy!
    I always believe that good nutrition is our first defense against all bad things that can happen to a body. There's no such thing as prevention - if a germ wants you it will find you - but we can do a lot in regard to making ourselves unpopular hosts for germs. If our bodies are too busy fighting off the garbage we put in them, they can't fight off the "serious" stuff. Always endeavor to eat for your body's needs! - 1/16/2011 9:15:29 AM
  • Since I became vegan 4 years ago my immune system is much stronger. I hardly ever get sick. Sometimes the truth is pretty simple. - 1/2/2011 2:48:45 AM
  • Thanks for the article! Staying away from sick people is definitely an important part of staying healthy. However, right now my husband is riding a crowded subway every day, so we need to do the best we can on other fronts. At least you can't smoke on the subway, yay! - 12/16/2010 10:45:54 AM
  • Excellent summary of immune-boosters.

    I'd also add "stay away from people with colds and flu"! (and from smokers, although smoking was mentioned in the article) - 12/2/2010 9:59:52 AM
  • Great article! - 11/5/2010 10:12:36 AM
  • I really enjoyed this article. It talked about some things that you already know about improving your immune system, but it offered several achievable ways to do it. - 4/1/2010 2:58:26 PM

    Articles like this one--that summarize in one place info we get bombarded with in "ads" are really great. It is a quick, one-place, reliable place to gather all of the best of the hype without the hype. Thanks! - 4/15/2009 11:14:55 AM
  • I REALLY ENJOYED THIS ARTICLE. - 3/3/2009 2:25:57 AM
  • I use to smoke but i stopped two years ago :) but I did it the same for eating emotional reasons. - 1/12/2009 10:54:55 PM
  • I just can't understand why ANYONE smokes! Yuck. - 10/30/2008 10:20:31 AM
  • Several year ago, I wanted to lose weight. I would only eat a bagel and a cup of coffee for breakfast. I would skip munch and dinner. I did lose thee 60 pounds and became a size 6. The only problem was I had destroyed my immunity system. I had already had a non-malignant breat problem. After the diet, I did develop breast cancer. Fortunately, it was caught in the early stages. I am cancer free for five years. I will never do that to myself again. I attributed the breast cancer to poor diet and my body's inability to fend off diseases. There is on history of breast cancer in my family. - 10/21/2008 11:14:07 PM
