Swine Flu Pandemic? Five (Avoidable) Things That Can Get You Killed

In an influenza pandemic, there are five things that can greatly increase your risk of death. A recent NaturalNews special report (http://www.naturalnews.com/RR-FiveB…) reveals these five dangerous things alongside the five most powerful anti-viral natural remedies. Today, we publish an excerpt from that report, bringing you the five things that can actually get you killed in a pandemic.

Avoiding these five things may literally save your life. As H1N1 influenza continues to spread (it’s in all fifty states now and is sweeping through the prison system), making sure you don’t fall victim to one of these five mistakes may be hugely important to your health and safety.

#1 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Arsenic

As revealed in a recent story on NaturalNews (http://www.naturalnews.com/026307.html), drinking well water contaminated with arsenic greatly increases susceptibility to H1N1 influenza infections. Arsenic is present in the water supply of tens of millions of people across the United States right now (now to mention the citizens of Canada, the UK, Australia and other countries). Low levels of arsenic are even “approved” by the EPA!

Check with your local water company to find out the arsenic levels in your water, and if you do find arsenic in your water, make sure you use a water filter (Aquasana is a good brand I recommend) to remove the arsenic.

#2 Thing that can get you killed in a pandemic: Antibiotics

Taking antibiotics before a swine flu infection greatly increases your risk of being killed by swine flu. How do we know that? Because antibiotics wipe out the friendly flora that have been scientifically proven to boost the body’s defenses against influenza (http://www.naturalnews.com/026265.html).

This is why, during any pandemic, doctors must exercise extreme caution when handing out antibiotics. While antibiotics can be extremely helpful during the pneumonia phase of a viral infection (when bacteria invade the lungs), they can be deadly if given to patients too soon (during the pre-pneumonia phase).

In addition, there’s the whole concern over antibiotics abuse creating yet more dangerous superbugs in hospitals. Imagine the combination assault of a deadly new strain of the H1N1 influenza virus plus an antibiotic-resistant superbug sweeping through the hospitals of the world… That’s a very dangerous combination indeed!
