Preventing the FLU...
"About 20,000 people die yearly due to the flu or

Influenza (also called "the flu") is a
viral infection in the nose, throat and lungs. About 10% to 20%
of Americans get the flu each year. Some people get very sick.
Each year, about 130,000 people go to a hospital with the flu,
and 20,000 people die because of the flu and complications.
