OK, maybe it's just my result, but I changed a routine nearly 30 years ago that has given me a flu-free existence since then.
I used to be a macho guy, I don't need no stinkin' flu shot, and every year I'd have at least one bout.
I became diabetic, and it became crucial for me to have a flu shot each year (Diabetics: Flu shots are considered CRITICAL for your good health). I started taking an annual flu shot and quit having to battle the flu.
It took me a few years to notice this trend, how
many of you remember when you didn't have an illness? I've never had tonsillitis, but I can't remember when I didn't have it - maybe that's why I don't remember it.
It's worked for me and goes along with Spark guidance that the best way to prevent the flu is to "get an annual flu shot".
