As the 2011-2012 cold, cough and flu season nears, it is extremely important to take the necessary precautions to ensure your family stays healthy this year. Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. The flu can be a miserable situation for anybody, but for some of us, it can be a life threatening situation. The flu can also make chronic health problems worse. For example, flu can trigger more severe asthma attacks and the worsening of congestive heart failure symptoms in patients that suffer from these diseases.
