Health Post: Swine Scares!

How would you know if you have swine flu? You'd probably have a high fever followed by a cough, sore throat, running nose and perhaps breathlessness. Swine flu is scaring the butts out of people lately in Mexico and in North America too, I suppose. Spain's Health Ministry at one time confirmed 54 cases of swine flu in the country, making Spain the hardest-hit nation in Europe. Do see a a doctor to ascertain if it is swine flu especially if you have come into contact with the saliva, nasal secretion and faeces of an infected pig. The pork or its products you have eaten probably are not the culprit especially if they are well cooked. Go about your life as usual and if just want to play safe, wear a mask and enjoy! You can be fashionable yet even if you put your mask on!
