I found a great little article that seems to be a great reminder on how to keep from getting sick!


Studies have shown that through a complex system of chemical processes sugar and processed foods depress the immune system. There exists a direct link between the amount of these foods that your child consumes and his/her health.

Obvious foods such as sodas, candy, cookies, ice cream, and potato chips are the big guns that should be kept concealed.

What, no ice cream??? :D

Stay well!

Anyone fighting a cold or flu? What made you feel better?

One of the best ways to protect yourself from colds and flus is to wash your hands, which the article has as the last point.

Each one seems to be a veritable whirling vortex of disease. My friends with small children are sick all the time.

I'm getting over a bad one that I'm sure I caught from children. I don't know how teachers deal with it, or if they get immune after a while.

Teachers somehow get immune, but their spouses sure don't.
