Smorgasbord Health Column – Winterise your Body – Influenza by Sally Cronin

For the last couple of years, flu has taken a back seat as covid arrived and went on a rampage  around the world but let’s not forget the seriousness of “The Flu”

Sally is correct when she says that protecting our bodies is paramount and this week she is taking a look at influenza as this like the common cold can have a severe effect on the very young and old and those who have poorly functioning immune systems.

“Up to 650,000 people in the world die from seasonal flu each year. This is much higher than the often-used numbers of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) based on data thought to reach back decades, which did not take into account the experience of developing countries. However, since then, many countries have improved their flu surveillance systems, and have been able to estimate deaths from the disease.”  Huffington Post 2022

Now the days and nights are getting a lot colder for some… we need to take every precaution and repair our bodies against the flu…Please head over to Smorgasbord to read the original post on what we can do to try and protect ourselves and our loved ones…
