Over the Counter # 14

Hmm, with the impending trip and fear of sitting beside someone hacking a lung out on the plane and getting sick for the rest of my visit, Don't Get Sick from the editors of Prevention Magazine caught my eye as it passed over my counter and under my scanner.

From the publisher Rodale Books:

"Coming down with the latest bug will never be on your to–do list. Who has time to be laid up by a cold or the flu? Now that germs are getting bigger and badder, there's even more reason to try to stay healthy.
Don't Get Sick makes the case for smart self–care as the key to stopping the spread of infectious illness. While germs may not be 100 percent avoidable, there's a lot that you can do to reduce your exposure and strengthen your natural defenses.

Drawing on scientific research and expert interviews, Don't Get Sick reveals:

Where germs are most likely to linger (and it's not public restrooms!)
How doctors, teachers, and others in high–risk professions manage to outsmart illness
Which immune–boosting products really work—and which aren't worth the money
... and so much more!"

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
