Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
HealthyAnswers.com has issued a warning about the 2013 flu epidemic now spreading across the U.S. Citing statistics from USA Today [Flu Season Turning Out to be a Harsh One, January 7, 2013], 18 children under the age of 18 have died, and 2,257 people have been hospitalized with the flu.
HealthyAnswers.com reveals that over 4,000 people in the city of Philadelphia alone have become sick with the flu. According to NBC nightly news, [Hospital Opens Emergency Tent in Midst of Increasing Flu Cases, January 8, 2013], the sheer numbers of people coming into hospital emergency rooms in Philadelphia has necessitated hospitals setting up makeshift tent “flu triage” centers in an attempt to keep the flu from spreading. Yet, every state of the union has been hit by moderate-to-severe outbreaks of the flu with over 36,000 cases nationwide.
HealthyAnswers.com also offers information about how the flu virus is spread and what its symptoms are. They also note certain vitamins, minerals, and foods that can boost the immune system and help prevent getting the flu virus.
HealthyAnswers.com resident medical expert, Mark Rosenberg, M.D., advises, “This current flu season is no joke or hype. It truly is a major epidemic. As such, people really need to pay strict attention to staying healthy by eating a good diet, exercising frequently, do frequent hand washing, and getting a vaccine – especially older people. Boosting the immune system with specific vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can also help prevent getting the flu and/or lessen the intensity of it.”
