Targeted Pain Relief When You Need It
The flu virus is known to spread through coughing, sneezing, and touching surfaces. But new research from the University of Maryland in College Park shows something new. People with the flu can spread the virus into the air around them just by breathing. Their research shows those who are infected with the virus generate tiny droplets that stay suspended within the air for a long time. This is true even when they aren't coughing or sneezing and happens the most within the first few days of illness.

We all know how important it is to maintain a clean, healthy, and compliant work environment, so in support of National Healthy Lung Month (HLM), we are going to focus on workplace air quality. Occupational exposure to common and potentially hazardous airborne debris or bacterial contaminants can have a big impact on an employee's immediate and long term health. Varying based on the occupation, prolonged exposure to toxic air can be hazardous to laborers in both high and low concentrations. Common industrial gases and toxic dusts can cause damage to the lungs, resulting in serious conditions, cancers, and even death. So to help those most at risk, we are sharing common air pollutants based on specific occupations.
Sometimes when you bring up concerns of hygiene, it may be taken as a criticism. This feeling can be the same amongst coworkers, family members, and everyone alike. If your hospital, care facility, or even your industry stays away from discussing hygiene issues - you could be letting the germs get a free pass.
We know and accept that germs are spread each and every place that we go. Those germs that cause the flu are even more apparent from October to May. There is however a difference year after year in how many people are affected by the virus.
Although most doctors recommend that everyone must get the flu vaccination, that is not always the case. In a study completed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 40% of people in the United States get the flu shot. Even if someone doesn’t get the vaccine every year, there are plenty of other ways to protect yourself from catching the virus.
