Staff Development Weekly: Insight on Evidence-Based Practice in Education, October 16, 2009

In one of our recent blog posts on the Leaders' Lounge, we talked about the H1N1 virus and how officials predicted the virus to hit U.S. citizens harder than any other season.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology warned that as many as 1.8 million people could be hospitalized by the H1N1 virus, causing as many as 90,000 deaths. The 86-page report offers guidance on the nation’s response to the first influenza pandemic in 41 years. We directed Leaders' Lounge readers to a few different sites to visit for flu updates, but they had some suggestions for us as well.

Here are some of the comments:

"When an infected person coughs or sneezes (and does not cover his/her mouth) the viruses fly into the air along with mucus, saliva and other secretions. More Information….http://www.manipalcureandcare.com/preventive/Flu-Influenza.aspx"

"There are natural alternatives to the flu vaccine without horrible side effects. Viralox is an anti-viral spray that is made from colostrum and has no side effects and helps to boost the immune system to fight off the flu. I found this website after looking at incr.org for information about colostrum and found a wealth of information. Just say no to the vaccine and yes to natural immune boosting."
