17. I remember a bunch of flu scares

Like the swine flu scare back in 1975, the Asian flu, the bird flu, swine flu again... not to mention other diseases like SARS, ebola, West Nile virus that were supposed to turn into pandemics but ended up being mostly hyperbole. After all that, I have little faith in announcements about potential disease outbreaks. I just try to keep as clean as possible (especially my hands), gargle with antiseptic mouthwash, eat right, drink enough fluids, and take medication and rest at the first sign of trouble.
