What you need to know about H1N1 flu virus:
Vaccines for H1N1 are now widely available, through seasonal flu
vaccines; however, they have been flawed with various recalls,
including a shortened expiration date (the vaccines were not
routinely refrigerated) and other non-safety related issues.

  • You can not get H1N1 by eating canned bacon. That's
    happy news indeed! You can not get H1N1 from consuming
    any pork product that's been properly handled.

  • Connection to Spanish Flu: Many people do not realize that
    the Spanish Flu of 1918 is related to swine flu. The
    illnesses spread simultaneously through different hosts and
    mutated differently:

Happy endings...
Vaccination is a personal choice and not taken lightly,
particularly with preppers. Many preppers feel that the extra
media attention is a red flag or that the flu itself is part of grand
scheme for culling the population. If you choose to vaccinate, it
doesn't have to be an all or none. Perhaps you vaccinate the
most fragile family members or those who have had a history of
hospital visits.

With Swine Flu in United States, it's time to prepare! Now that
you know how to deal with the problem of Swine Flu you can
prepare yourself and help inform others.

    as effective towards fighting infections, such as swine flu,
    and even cancer:

  • Baking soda has a history to treat flu symptoms. In 1924
    Arm & Hammer produced a booklet that claimed its product
    would minimize flu symptoms. The booklet said that "rarely
    any one who had been thoroughly alkalinized with
    bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease." There are
    people who ingest baking soda in small amounts to keep
    blood alkaline levels in check.*

How to Prevent Swine Flu and Survive
This little piggie went to market, this little piggie got swine flu,
and this little piggie had none. The giant microbe, picture left is
a humorous way to educate kids on washing hands and
preventing disease.

Swine flu is no laughing matter. Swine Flu, now called H1N1,
caused a world-wide pandemic in 2009 with nearly 300,000
hospitalizations and some 1,300 deaths. Unfortunately, swine flu
is making a comeback:

#1: Get vaccinated?
Not so fast! This is the calculated line we've all been fed by
government officials and  physicians. An ordinary flu shot will
have considerable help for preventing H1N1 flu virus; however, it
is not fool-proof, and there are many respectable doctors who
believe there are more poisons in vaccinations than there are

#2: Be careful what you touch.
If you don't touch a contaminated surface, you'll greatly reduce
your chances for getting the Swine Flu.

#3: Wash hands, frequently.
Your hands touch germs all day long and washing hands is the
best way to prevent infection. H1N1 spreads through coughs and
sneezes, and contaminated surfaces. Frequent handwashing is a
typical precaution for swine flu and other seasonal flu strains as
the virus is spread from person to person through contact of the
virus with mouth or nose. Unfortunately, spread of swine flu can
happen one day before symptoms begin, up to about seven days
after being sick.

#4: Bring antibacterials with you.
Washing hands is better than using an antibacterial, but it's
better to carry antibacterial and use it during crisis or when there
is no way to get to the bathroom for a handwashing.

#5: Protect any open wounds with bandages.
Germs can infiltrated even a paper cut, so it's important that you
deal with any injuries promptly by cleaning it and covering it up.
Do what you can to avoid germs from directly getting into the
body, even if it means wearing latex gloves.

#6: Get a and wear an antiviral mask.
Wear an antiviral mask, but don't expect the mask alone to
protect you. An antiviral mask is a layer of protection and not the
end all.

#7: Be Proactive about decontaminating.
H1N1 flu virus requires vigilant housekeeping:
  1. Regularly sanitize high traffic areas. Wipe down
    contaminated surfaces frequently, including door knobs,
    telephones, railings, countertops, bathroom sinks.
  2. Use a proper disinfectant. Vital Oxide, pictured immediate
    right, is proven effective against H1N1, as well as Influenza
    Virus, MRSA, E-Coli, Norovirus, and Legionella pneumophilia.

#8: Know the symptoms of swine flu.
When you know the symptoms of swine flu, you can act promptly.
Symptoms include:
  • fever (Interestingly, not everyone with the H1N1 will
    experience fever!)
  • fever with rash (in children)
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • runny nose
  • headache
  • chills
  • fatigue
  • sometimes diarrhea and vomiting

#9: Be aware of the warning signs.
The warning symptoms of Swine Flu include:
  • trouble breathing (fast breathing)
  • Blue skin tone
  • flu like symptoms that improve, but come back with fever
    and cough
  • confusion, dizziness
  • Adults may experience severe and persistent vomiting

#10: Keep the most at risk, out of harm's way.
Keep frail individuals out of harms way by minimizing contact
with others during the height of the epidemic or pandemic. Who
is most at risk for Swine Flu?

  • People YOUNGER than 65 are at risk. Read that
    carefully... It's the young ones who are most affected and
    not the older people! Yes, age has its advantages. The
    young people are most at risk:

  • Most people affected by H1N1 in 2009 were 24 years
    and younger. This is unusual, because it is unlike the
    ordinary flu bug.

  • Few if any persons older than 65-years were
    affected in 2009, which is an interesting fact about
    H1N1. It likely means that the older generation may
    have already suffered a more minor strain of the illness
    making their immune systems better at combating this

  • People with weakened immune systems are at risk.
  • People with liver disorders
  • Those with AIDS/HIV and cancer
  • People with metabolic and mitochondrial disorders
  • Chronic steroid users
  • Most of the infected individuals, or those who died,
    suffered from weakened immune conditions or medical
