All of these cool flu-fighting sites are sponsored by Genetech who does have a vested interest in the flu…they are the makers of the anti-viral, Tamiflu.  However don’t let that discourage you from checking out the sites…they are filled with good, easy to read and accessible information.  If we all are more aware and practice good health habits, we can minimize our chances of getting and spreading the flu. Your friends and family will appreciate that!
