I know a lot of people are worried about the swine flu situation snowballing into a raging pandemic. Many are wondering whether to hide in a cave until it passes, get vaccinated, or what? A cool-headed look at the situation, though, reveals that it might be easier to get sick because of watching hour after hour of talking heads on TV news channels yammering about swine flu, than from swine flu itself.

I have also received a number of conspiracy theory "sky-is-falling" e-mails during the past week about the supposed origins of the current swine-bird-human flu hybrid that is making the rounds.

Of all the information I have heard and read about the swine flu situation during the past week, the summary that strikes me as the most grounded and complete is from Dr. Joseph Mercola. I frequently find the medical information he makes available on his www.mercola.com website valuable. The piece he wrote about the current swine flu situation is no exception. To read his article, go to: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/29/Swine-Flu.aspx

Sensibility is the best policy in dealing with this situation as it stands on April 29, 2009. Please let me know if you find Dr. Mercola’s article as useful as I did by dropping me an e-mail after you read it. You can do that by going to www.TheNewIQ.com/contact

Also, if you find yourself interested in Dr. Mercola’s comments about EFT toward the end of the article, I invite you to return here to enroll in my free introductory eCourse about Energy Psychology (EFT is a member of this family of remarkable treatment and self-treatment methods.)
