Yeah it’s hard to say what is and what is not total bullshit, but I’ve also read that it might be linked to the hormones in cow-milk. I know hard cheeses, butter, and goat cheese are lower in lactose than milk and fresh cheese. Whether lactose plays an issue I do not know. My dad developed a lactose intolerance later in life, so I wonder if that’s also a development. Either way, in the past month or so since cutting out soft cheeses like mozzarella, I haven’t broken out around my mouth/lower jaw. We’ll see if that continues!
If so, you are at high risk of serious illness if you get the flu. In past flu seasons, as many as 80 percent of adults hospitalized from flu complications had a long-term health condition; as did about 50 percent of hospitalized children. Asthma , diabetes and chronic heart disease were the most common of these. This fact sheet provides information about treating influenza in high risk people with prescription influenza antiviral drugs. Treatment with an antiviral drug can mean the difference between having a milder illness versus a very serious illness that could result in a hospital stay.
