Home Remedies for SWINE FLU


Swine flu is spreading through out the world like a fire. It is a kind of respiratory disease that is caused by influenza type A virus. This virus is very similar to the bird flue virus and the main difference is that it is that this type of virus largely affects the pigs but, sometimes, can occur in people having close contact with pigs. Swine flu is infectious and communicable. It can easily spread from one to another through coughing and sneezing. It can affect people of all ages and can cause sore throat, chills, fever, body aches, headaches, etc.
