The next best thing to a cure for the common cold--proven strategies to outsmart germs and help you stay disease-free.

Coming down with the latest bug to make the rounds will never be on anyone's to-do list. After all,
who has time to be laid up by, say, a cold or the flu? And now that the germs are getting bigger and badder, there's even more reason to try to stay healthy.

Don't Get Sick makes the case for smart self-care as the key to stopping the spread of infectious illness. While germs may not be 100 percent avoidable, there's a lot that people can do to reduce their exposure and strengthen their natural defenses. Drawing on scientific research and expert interviews, Don't Get Sick reveals:

  • Where germs are most likely to linger
  • How nurses, teachers, and others in high-risk professions manage to outsmart illness
  • Which immune-boosting products really work--and which aren't worth the money

Packed with real-world advice, along with a healthy dose of perspective on swine flu and other health risks, Don't Get Sick is a must-have resource for anyone concerned about their health.
