with infectious diseases, I now advocate the el-bump. it's not as cool as the fist bump, but safer. I think it will catch on.

Right on, Doc! I couldn't agree with you more! Check out the Bucky Krum Elbow Bump on Youtube! Bucky
HA HA HA, that's rich.
cool way to hug...lol
Personally, I think for USA citizens, the good ole salute is appropriate. SAAAAA- LUTE!!!
I have never shaken hands. I have a phobia about touching peoples hands and always have. Sometimes they get offended. But I watch what they do with their hands, and I am turned off. Plus, secondly they crunch my delicate artist hands and it injures me.
I hope this catches on. Could save a LOT of us, especially those of us with compromised immune systems due to the after effects of cancer treatments, from becoming very ill.
I think this is actually much cooler than the fist bump!!!
Since our "Stand-Down" on handshaking at work, I will be the embassador of the el-bump to our employees!
@Sharon_Robin Give the NYC spread to another school, maybe not NYC starting this weekend. Standard Flu Symptoms, plus a sudden spike to 103F.
What is the best way for flight attendants to protect themselves?
Thanks for your updates.
Please look to Western Homeopathic Medicine in prevention, treatment and cure of this Flu. In 1918 Flu only 1.05% deathrate with homeoathy but allopathy 30% deathrate. We have very effective remedies...why does no one ask?

with the cases in the united states is it still safe to be in a place where there lots of people, like a baseball stadium?
I have a question for you Doc. How did the bird flu end up being merged with the Swine Flu in Mexico? I thought the Avian influenza was from Asia?
How do you think the water shut offs in Mexico City, http://bit.ly/OH0J3, affected the spread of Swine Flu? Time said 5 million (25% of Mexico City pop. impacted. That's a lot of unwashed hands
Are the symptoms the standard flu ones? Is there anything else that might clue in "swine" over standard, everyday flu?
Thanks for your calm advice!
The el-bump it is, Doc. Thanks!
I saw this on The Colbert Report several months ago - it's a good idea.
well, it is getting SCARY - one day we will have to wrap our selfs into a plastic paper and live in a bubble !
