What is influenza?

It is a highly infectious disease by A, B and C viruses in breathing organs (nose, bronchi and lungs). In general, the ill get better within a week or two, but the affect can continue for weeks. The disease is the most common through October-March.
How to understand you’ve caught flu?
Influenza is notable for early fever or shiver, cough, muscular pain, headache, sore throat, blocked or flux nose, fatigue or low mood, and apathy.

How does the infection take place, and what shall we do? It mostly starts 1-2 days prior to the symptoms and continues for 3-7 days. People tend to cover their noses and mouths with their hands when coughing and sneezing, so direct hand-to-hand contacts or hugs increase infection probability. While normal breathing speed is 25 km per hour, it reaches 320 km per hour, and microbes spread up to 30 cm when sneezing. Microbes can survive for 24 hours in the environment. To prevent against the situation, paper tissues must be used to cover the mouth when sneezing. It is possible to prevent infection after a contact with a flu-infected or cold-catching person if you wash your hands, avoid touching your eyes and nose, considered the most vulnerable to infection, clean or even, when possible, decontaminate computers and telephones used by others, spare time to relax during flu outbreaks, and consume more liquid.

Flu Vaccine

Flu vaccine protects the 90% of adults. One dose is recommended annually. The most suitable time for vaccination is September - November. The direct effect starts within 10-14 days.

Vitamin C

Against popular beliefs, it doesn’t prevent flu. It does improve immune system, but doesn’t directly disturb infection. Furthermore, excessive vitamin-C dosage can cause diarrhea  especially among children and elderly people and slow  recovery down.

Antibiotics

Antibiotics cannot influence flu virus and so don’t shorten the illness period.

There is something invisible on kitchen tissues

According to a research by Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir, fabric towels used to clean kitchen accessories have hundreds of thousands of bacteria even if they are washed daily.
The research tested hygienic features of paper and fabric kerchiefs. It has been scientifically proved paper kerchiefs have no bacteria on, which means they are advantageous to use in contrast to fabric towels.
Water accumulated in long-term-used fabric kerchiefs creates nurturing conditions for bacteria. Wet environment, which is the best for bacteria, forms on such kerchiefs used to clean kitchen utensils.
Even washed a few times daily, fabric towels still have invisible bacteria on, so it is not a remedy. Countless bacteria stay on your hands after every contact and cast doubt on health of yours and your family.
Using paper tissues doesn’t bring to the danger. The same research shows they are highly hygienic, used only once and so not washed. That is to say paper tissues help to prevent from bacteria on your hands and around you.

What else to do for kitchen cleanness?

Pay attention to the cleanness of kitchen utensils
