It's flu season;
By Richard Alford
Influenza — called the "flu" for short -- is
an infectious disease caused by a virus.
The symptoms of influenza include chills,
fever, headaches, aches in the joints, and weak
ness. The symptoms usually disappear in
about a week.

the upper air passages. Influenza can spread
deep within the lungs and sometimes to other
parts of the body. The virus may also be car

Although cold weather does not directly
cause influenza, as many people think, the
virus occurs most frequently in the wintertime.
In most cases, influenza does not cause death.
Ways to try to prevent influenza from tak
ing over your body are getting enough sleep,
eating well and by vaccination and taking
antibiotics. Vaccines are made of killed
influenza viruses. These vaccines offer some
protection, but are not as effective as scientists
would like them to be.
