Coughs, Colds and Flu... Myths & Facts!

Myth : Large doses of vitamin C can prevent colds and cure them quickly.

Fact : This is not proven,although consuming the daily requirement of vitamin C is good for overall health as it strengtened the immune system.

Myth : An upset stomach is a symptom of flu...

Fact : Stomach distress is rarely a symptom of flu. More common causes for nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea are infection by bacteria,viruses and food poisoning.

Myth : A bowl of chicken soup and hot toddies can help cure a cold.

Fact : Chicken soup has no power to cure cold. However,hot liquids can soothe a scratchy throat or cough. Hot toddies should also be avoided during a cold or flu. Alcoholic beverages increases the risk of dehydration and therefore will worsen the symptoms.

Myth :
It is best to starve a cold and feed a fever.

Fact : It doesn't work! When fighting a cold or fever,the body needs plenty fluids from water or juices and enough food to satisfy the appetite.

So... Let us be healthy and happy :)

Prevention is better than cure.. Mencegah lebih baik dari mengubati :)
