8 Myths about the Flu debunked!

With the Winter season approaching, the common cold and the flu are right around the corner. Every flu season (Fall and Winter with the peak of flu season anywhere from late November through March), as many as 20% of Americans get sick with a virus that can cause serious, even lethal complications (not to mention the general awfulness of a fever, chills, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, and headache). So how come there are still so many myths and rumors about the flu?

The most important MYTH that i have come across is this: If you got a flu shot last year, you do not need a flu shot this year. This is so FALSE! Viruses are always changing and there are new ones in the environment every season. Flu shots vary in composition every year, based on this year’s viruses. Therefore it is important to get a flu shot EVERY YEAR without fail.

Misinformation can increase susceptibility and open us up as targets for illness, and Bankers Healthcare Group is a company devoted to providing physician loans, and they are partnering with doctors around the country as well as bloggers like me to debunk these myths!

Here are some more MYTHS about the Flu, which are definitely NOT TRUE according to scientific research.

  1. The Flu is just a bad cold – FALSE
  2. The Flu Vaccine can give you the flu – FALSE
  3. Getting the flu vaccine is all you need to do to prevent flu – FALSE
  4. Taking Vitamin C will Continue reading

If there was ever a doubt that cooking is more than just a means of providing sustenance, the evidence lies in Ultimate-Homemade-Baby-Cereal-Iconmy mother’s hands. She is an excellent cook, who filled our childhood with delicious and mouth watering memories of homemade cakes in her special sand cooker, paneer, snacks and munchies,
colorful fruit trifle with all the freshly available seasonal fruit, jams & jellies of pineapple, grape, mango, and (gasp!) papaya too! She was an innovative, resourceful and smart cook, who always used locally available fresh ingredients and created unique and healthy recipes of them.

My mother got this particular cereal recipe from one of her best friends more than 30 years ago, and she passed it on to so many new parents in and outside our family and every one of them gave her their thanks and said it helped their picky and skinny baby put on a little bit of weight and grow more healthy. My heartfelt thanks to my mother and to the main source of the recipe, Mrs. JY!

Here, I wanted to provide a little more scientific proof of the “healthiest” part of the ingredients and did some research and yes, this is hands down the HEALTHIEST, MOST NUTRITIOUS and the BEST food for a baby, using just 8 ingredients! Say bye-bye to commercial baby cereal. So here’s how you make it:

Ingredients:

1. Millet or Millet Flour- 200gm

2. Whole Wheat or Whole Wheat Flour-200gm

Feel free to leave your stuff wherever you want this summer. Half drunk smoothies in the family room? No problem. I got it. Socks in the hall. I’m on it. Dishes in the sink? Keep ’em coming. Legos?
