I'll spare ya the gory details, but I had some NASTY tummy thing going on yesterday. Just downright nasty. I think it was food poisoning (thankfully and thanks to myself) and not the stomach flu.
And I HAVE to say this... stomach flu/virus is NOT the same as the flu/influenza.
Now that that's outta the way...
Doctors have finally figured out a guaranteed way to keep you from getting a COLD. And what is this miracle remedy? It's easy: You just need to get the FLU. According to a study of more than 44,000 patients in Scotland, believe it or not, you can't get a cold and the flu at the same time. Those viruses both create an inflammatory response in your body that basically acts like a barrier to the other one, so the one that gets there first wins out. Unfortunately, they don't block OTHER illnesses from getting through. One example: The flu actually makes you more susceptible to pneumonia.
