According to most experts, bird flu is coming. It's not a question of if, but when. In 1918 up to 50 million died in the Spanish Influenza outbreak; with increased global travel, this next pandemic could be even worse. The avian flu virus, H5N1, could kill millions upon millions if it mixes with a human strain of influenza. It poses more of a threat to global society than terrorism, natural disasters or economic collapse. Our governments are aware of the threat, but are radically unprepared to protect us. Beat the Flu shows you how to protect yourself and your loved ones from bird flu, as well as regular flu. Full of life-saving tips, from the best way to clean your home and where to purchase effective air filters, to how to get hold of antiviral medication before it runs out, Beat the Flu also explores what to do if society breaks down following a major pandemic. By the time H5N1 mutates into its final 'breakout' form there is a 95% probability it will be too late to develop a vaccine. This book is packed with advice to keep you healthy.
