DailyDirt: The Flu Season Is Here…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

This year’s flu season seems to be unusually miserable and widespread. One of the flu strains getting passed around this year hasn’t been seen for a few years, so people’s immune system resistance to it may be weak. If you haven’t caught the bug yet, here are just a few links that could help you avoid it — or just tell you more about what the flu actually is.

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Every year the flu season is hyped as though it were the worst ever. What ever happened in that story about the boy who cried wolf?

The media love to trot out the number of deaths in order to sensationalize the story and possibly encourage people to get shots, someone is making a bunch of money – no? Have a look at the CDC graph – this year looks to be as expected – go figure.
