The flu season arrived unusually late this year, but it's here, so start preparing for the worst!

With that in mind, here are ten foods you should eat to help you stay clear of this annoying infectious disease that could knock you out of your daily routine for days on end!

Suck Down Skim Milk: Vitamin D is key for defending your body against germs. Experts suggest 600 international units a day, which can be found in fortified milk, OJ, yogurt, eggs and salmon.

Just half of one will give women their recommended daily dose of 75 milligrams, while men need about 90 milligrams.

Drink Tea Instead Of Coffee: Harvard University found the immune cells of tea drinkers responded to germs 5x faster than immune cells of coffee drinkers!

Eat Yogurt: Make sure it's marked with a seal from the National Yogurt Association's Live & Active Cultures, but the probiotics (healthy bacteria) will help create a stronger immune system while lowering the risk of gum disease and some cancers.

Get Goat Cheese: It's low in calories and contains copper, which is great for the immune system. The creamy spread is an excellent tasting and healthy substitute for mayo.

Spain Testing 'Powerful' HIV Vaccine

Filed under: HealthMedicineScience!

HIV vaccine

This is exciting!

Researchers in Spain are testing an HIV vaccine that has been deemed "much more powerful" than others that have been tested in the past.

Since beginning tests on humans over a year ago, the vaccine has abled 95% of the 30 patients receiving it to build an immunity, with 85% sustaining that immunity for at least a year!

That is a HUGE improvement because the success rate for previous vaccines has been only 25%!

There have been so many breakthroughs in HIV/AIDS research lately. Are we finally getting a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel? We hope so!

Oksana's Dentist Granted Immunity In Exchange For Cooperation With Authorities!

oksana-grigorieva-dentist-dr-sheldon-ross-gets-immunity-in-exchange-for-cooperation-in-assault-investigation

Pretty even trade, we'd say!

Dr. Ross Sheldon, the dentist who treated Oksana Grigorieva after Mel Gibson's alleged attack on her, has been granted immunity for not reporting the injuries immediately to law enforcement. In return, he has agreed to fully cooperate in the assault investigation currently against the actor!

A source close to the situation explains:

"Dr. Ross was given immunity so he would cooperate with the investigation of Mel Gibson. Dr. Ross was initially reluctant to cooperate because he feared he would also be the subject of a separate criminal investigation for not reporting Oksana's injuries. Dr. Ross is required by law to report injuries. The reason he didn't talk to cops right after Oksana told him, was because Oksana made him promise he wouldn't tell anyone. He fully cooperated with the investigation. He realizes he made a mistake by not reporting the incident. Still, Dr. Shelden would make a very strong witness for the prosecution if Mel Gibson is charged with any crime in connection with the incident. The Los Angeles District Attorney has three years on the statue of limitations from when the alleged incident occurred to file charges against Mel. However, a decision will be made in January 2011, on what charges if any, will be filed against Gibson."

It must have been a very difficult situation, but he should have known better as a doctor than not to report it.

We just hope the truth will finally come out!
