People around the globe are not venturing out of their homes, but if they should be so brave to, there still exists the ever-present fear of contracting Swine Flu, causing them to jump in horror every time someone around them sneezes or coughs.

By silently creeping into our systems, swine flu causes the body temperature to rise, which in turn leads to other complications in the body. The entire problem with swine flu stems from the fact that it is essentially is a sort of fever that has symptoms which are quite similar to a common flu. The common symptoms of swine flu include fever, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, lack of appetite and lethargy.

Rather than learning to adapt to this disease by putting on masks (recent reports have shown couples being wed while wearing matching flu prevention masks!) we have to focus on building our immunity towards it. All of us at are of risk of becoming ill due to swine flu, however if we maintain good hygiene and keep our surroundings clean, the risk of contracting this influenza reduces drastically.

The highly contagious nature of swine flu – also known as the H1N1 virus – allows it to spread quite easily, and people travelling on flights to other parts of the globe greatly increase their chances of acquiring this disease. The most effective way of dealing with swine flu is by improving one’s diet, taking all the necessary vitamins and minerals to keep the body healthy and strong, maintaining good hygiene – washing hands as often as possible – while also wearing masks in areas that are visited by a lot of people.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has labeled the swine flu as a pandemic, meaning it is an epidemic of an infectious disease that is spreading across borders and even continents. In total, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, 3,049 people have died from the worldwide swine flu outbreak, with the most deaths occurring in Latin America.

The key to resolving the swine flu issue is to stay calm, take all the necessary precautions and go for a total body check up. Even though swine flu is a very real threat, it can be dealt with. Reports from doctors around the world validate the fact that even people very ill with the swine flu can be completely cured.

Celebrities who have contracted swine flu include Rupert Grint.
