Keep fit to prevent flu

Well, if you are one of those who are not into regular exercise, maybe it is time to change that.

Research shows that regular exercise bolsters immunity to colds and flu, and sporty types who do not succumb to colds tend to get off lightly.

New research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found people who were physically active on five or more days a week were ill for almost half the time of those who managed only one workout in a week. Cold symptoms were also up to 41% less severe in the very fit.

I guess that just give me an extra reason to get on my running shoe for the run again...
