Bad news, dieters: Drinking water DOESN’T help you lose weight, nutrition expert claims Other findings from Flusurvey confirm that reports of flu viruses this winter are amongst the lowest in recent years. Over the winter flu season, only 4.7 per cent of reports were positive for flu-like symptoms compared to 6.0 per cent last year – which was another season of low activity. Rates are also down among children with just 5.0 per cent reporting symptoms this flu season compared to 7.9 per cent in the previous year.

Figures have also shown that last winter had some of the lowest rates of flu infection in recent years due in part p90X3 review to the large amount of rain and mild weather Dr Alma Adler, ambassador for National Science & Engineering Week and Research Fellow at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine said; Were really interested in the preliminary findings around fitness activity and flu-like illness, http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/p90x3-reviews/sbwire-455028.htm as exercise is something that everyone can do to reduce your chance of having flu.
